What do you call a man who shows signs of psychotic behavior, defecates on hotel carpets because he thinks his feces are sacred, molests children, identifies with the Anti-Christ, and dies a penniless junkie in a flophouse? If you’re a Thelemite, you declare him a god and hang on every letter of his writings of course!

This is the third time I have posted this entry on this site. It was recently chosen as a Best Answer: Aleister Crowley was a major influence on modern ceremonial magick at a time when it and other forms of alternative spirituality that had been marginalized (or demonized) during the late medieval era and then mostly trivialized during the Modern era in history were making a come-back in revisionist and syncretic form.

The Beast 666- Pioneer of demonology & chaos magick.
