I received another letter about the Catcher in the Rye entry
of June 2. This one informed me about Internet sites that give
evidence that the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington on
September 11, 2001, were elaborate frauds. I already know about this
conspiracy theory. My take on it is that it is just that--a theory,
and nothing more.
In the confusion of such earth-shaking events there will always be news reports and witness testimonies that are contradictory and don't make sense; moreover it is not unusual for governments to hide facts for their own special purposes. This does not mean some grand conspiracy is afoot. It's just the human condition: our senses are imperfect, we make mistakes, we are subject to illusion, and we cheat.
Quite independent from our human frailties, events and aspects of this world we live in often exhibit mysterious coincidences.
I can provide my readers here at In2-MeC with some
facts that you can use to build all kinds of interesting conspiracy
theories, if you like doing that. Let's start with a fact about
myself. My family name is Crowley. That's originally an Irish
name. Ireland is not a big country; all families named Crowley are
ultimately related to one another at some point in their
history. There is a Clan Crowley Society in Ireland that is devoted
to tracing out the world-wide Crowley family tree. Now, it so happens
that there is a family of Crowleys in Augsburg, Germany. Quite by
chance I happened to meet them in the 1980s. This branch of the
Crowleys was sired by Aleister Crowley. He was a notorious British
occultist and magician of recent times who was known as "the Great
Beast." (See the Website oto-usa.org/about_thelema.html ). These
Augsburg Crowleys accepted me as a relative.
Thus I am related to a famous black magician.
But it doesn't stop there.
One of Aleister Crowley's disciples was Jack Parsons
(see www.forteantimes.com/articles/132_parsons.shtml and also www.babalon.net/articles/mitchell.html ). Parsons was one of the pioneers of the development of rocket fuel and rocket engines in the USA. He began his work in that field before the Second World War. He helped establish the JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, which was also informally called "Jack Parson's Laboratory"). A crater on the moon is named after him too. Jack Parsons is a respected name in US science, but he was a would-be sorceror who died in a mysterious explosion in 1952, two years after I was born.
Jack Parsons's good friend in the late '40's was L. Ron Hubbard, who is the founder of the Scientology cult. Together they performed a "Babalon Working" in the California desert, the purpose of which was to
invite into the human world a demonic spirit of powerful magical abilities.
This is all true.
It is also true that I was born in 1950 in the Crowley
lineage, soon after the Babalon Working. On my birth
certificate my father's occupation is listed as
"Flight Engineer." (He was in the US Air Force, which
in 1950 was busy testing Parson's inventions). A few
days before I was born, a US Air Force B-36
bomber--which at that time was the largest military
aicraft in history, bigger than today's Boeing
747--crashed and burned outside the town of Crowley,
Is there a connection???????????
Ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!
