A fascinating interview with writer and researcher Adam Gorightly has just been posted to the Net, and which covers some notable areas of his studies, such as Aleister Crowley and the Lam saga; the Babalon Working and Jack Parsons; Roswell; the Contactee era; Keel;Â and much more.
Adam will be lecturing at the Roswell UFO Festival in July. If you are going to be there, don’t miss this one.

Hi Nick: I was actually chatting with the owner of a local occult bookstore yesterday about Crowley. I asked him why these magic incantations were any different from just a priest incantation. He stated that it was due to the mathematics behind them and the sacred geometry.
I pointed out that in nonwestern magic the results are based on asymmetric resonance while all of western math, including the gematria of western magic, relies on symmetric one-to-one correpondance of number and letter.
He didn’t know what I was talking about. I personally think that Western “spirituality” is 99% rubbish — everything from “What is Enlightenment” to charismatic christianity to grimoires.
Western magic is not much different than sci-fi — it’s actually the worship of western technology as spirituality. Certainly these rituals of incantations and sacred geometry artwork are a type of magic but it’s part of the same system that is destroying the planet’s ecology and also it’s destroyed nonwestern cultures. I find that western occultists and sci-fi types do not have any structural analysis for the environmental crisis.
The CIA corporate-PR propaganda is very strong in promoting an “individual” response based on guilt, etc., to the ecological crisis. We find this same “cult of the personality” in the western occult scene. This is stupid as the damage of the ecological crisis is concentrated in the 5 to 10 companies that control each main sector of the economy. It requires institutional change based on structural philosophy.
The same is true in paranormal phenomenon. In fact they are totally impersonal because they are created just like holographs — as the interference patterns of light, resonating from a formless ether or pure consciousness. This process is empowered through an asymmetric resonance via the right-brain that activates the pineal gland but it’s powered through electromagnetic fields.
Puharich’s book “Beyond Telepathy” has a fascinating model for how the angular momentum between the proton and electron does not alter the electrical field but can strongly alter the magnetic field. He calls this the “psi-plasma vortex” and it’s controlled by the potassium-sodium ratio. The book “Taoist Yoga: Alchemy and Immortality” states that no salt should be consumed and interestingly the same is said of faeries in Celtic tradition — they hate salt.
Puharich never studied the real full-lotus yogins because they are so rare these days.
