Just some links while I am busy on two editing projects and a proposal…
¶ Aleister Crowley’s legacy still poses problems for occultists — especially when they take Internet “life” as equivalent to a “scene.”
¶ Lonnie muses about animism and consciousness.
¶ A British celebrity chef recommends henbane in salads. Much concern ensues. The ethnobotanist Christian Rätsch has a recipe for henbane beer, which he says is excellent. (His personal site, in German, is here.)
¶ Peter Bishop has been reading the book of Genesis. It’s fun to watch the reaction of an intelligent, non-Christian reader, “letting it speak for itself, instead of viewing it through the lens of later writings.” I love the idea of Yahweh as a sort of venture capitalist investing in Abram and Sarah.
