“Pathology of the Sublime” from Problems on the Path of Return by Mark Stavish, M.A. in Vol 3 No 1 of Caduceus.

To some degree, Millennialism, Apocalypticism, or obsession with ‘Earth Changes’ or persecution for believing in a non-traditional form of worship fall into this category. (Tiphareth/Sun)” [via]
