The fascinating Jack Parsons, by Matt Cardin via The Daily Grail:
"He was an unorthodox genius, a poet and rocket scientist who helped give birth to an institution that would become mankind’s window on the universe. He was also a devotee of the black arts, a sci-fi junkie and host of backyard orgies on Pasadena’s stately Millionaires’ Row. (“Life as Satanist Propelled Rocketeer,” Los Angeles Times, March 19, 2000)"
He was an acolyte of Aleister Crowley, an employee of Howard Hughes, a victim of L. Ron Hubbard, and an enthusiastic phone buddy to Wernher Von Braun.
Parsons opened things up by conducting "The Babalon Working" (as well as the attempt to bring about the "Moon Child")-- vortex, access for forces to enter easily into our realm - - which some believe was a literal event, and explains the madness of today. Like Matt Cardin, I don't doubt it.
Note: , Nick Redfern has some interesting things to say about Parsons in his book FINAL EVENTS and the Secret Government Group on Demonic UFOs and the Afterlife.
