Most people (if not all) “in” C of $ have no clue of L. Ron Hubbard’s original days connected to Aleister Crowley (“the Beast: 666), Jack Parson’s and their connections with Black Magic.
Parson’s was a founding member of J. P. L. (Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena) — and there’s a huge story about the 3 of them, which Cal Tech has put on, last week — and this week-end, too. Crowley had his own cult (OTO) and some of the members of that were there, last week.
I made a video about it and then went this week-end, also, with some other friends.
The head of the theater group, and L. Ron Hubbard (the man who played him) both saw my video (it’s on the Cal Tech site, under “for more info about Parson’s, Crowley and Hubbard”) and thanked me for making it.
As one of my friends just said: “Did you think Hubbard would ever be thanking you?” We had a good laugh about that.
If you don’t know of Hubbard’s early days, either go see the show if in LA tonight, or read Russell Miller’s “Barefaced Messiah”. Quite a story!
My best to you all, and Greg::: Move along~
