Edgar Larkin

I'm always fascinated by scientists who are also bonkers about the supernatural. Even Isaac Newton dabbled in the occult, which was more understandable for his era.

But here's a twentieth-century fellow who led such a double life: Edgar Lucien Larkin.

I'm sure you will want to read all 366 pages of his masterwork to be found here.

When the human imagination is unfettered it reaches new heights.
When it is unguided, it finds the cliffs.

Call it Old Age or New Age weirdness, it doesn't really matter. Humans will believe anything that fits their world picture. I for one recognize the Stark Fist of Removal and the Slack it will bring to all humans.

All hail Bob Dobbs!

No matter how crazy the idea if someone claims to believe it others will follow. Now, the Church of the Spaghetti Monster, there's something solid to believe in! tongue wink
