Over at the Scarlet Imprint blog, there’s a new post about Jack Parsons, Babalon, Witchcaft that may be of interest. There’s some field recordings embedded in the post which is an “good introduction to Jack, and a different version to any of the writing that we have previously published on the subject.”
“What is most striking is how modern Jack seems, a rocket scientist whose discoveries literally put man on the moon. His writing is clear and empassioned, and cuts to the core of what witchraft is. A free thinker, rebel and libertarian who argued for sexual freedom and women’s rights before it was fashionable. A bohemian who experimented with drugs, new ways of living, and dared to dream of what human potential could acheive.
Jack Parsons is the bridge between the generation of Crowley and the revolutionary potential unleashed in the sixties. It seems that the same revolutionary spirit is returning with the occupy movement and the increased profile of the psychedelic movement. Jack would be in favour of the renewed vigour being felt in magick and wider culture in these critical times.”
