"Of immediate interest is Aleister Crowley's "Lam," a "magickal" entity who bears an uncanny resemblance to today's "Grays." Unlike Lam, who functioned as a mentor and paraphysical guru, the Grays are typically assumed to be dispassionate ET scientists; if Crowley were practicing his consciousness experiments today, would he be greeted by dome-headed beings in skin-tight jumpsuits?"

Nothing says "Halloween" quite like Aleister Crowley, and that fact was not lost on ToB, our intrepid blogger at Histories of Things To Come. She's been doing a no-holds-barred Halloween countdown for the month of October, covering a range of topics that few others would be so bold to attempt... everything from the real "Cryptkeepers" and the suicide forest of Japan, to celebrity hauntings and the ghosts of Cambodia.
She kids you not! Great stuff!
As for Aleister, The Fake Mystic, oh ToB, don't be so hard on the man! Fraudulent he may have been (in ways), but such a brilliant fraud! ;-)
