Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled!
I’ve been an admirer of Aleister Crowley, I think that I am carrying on much of the work that he started over a hundred years ago, and I think the sixties themselves... you know Crowley said... he was in favor of finding your own self, and “do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law” - under love - it was a very powerful statement. I’m sorry he isn’t around to appreciate the glories he started. - Timothy Francis Leary

Darwin and Galton Attend Séance.
Along with many other prominent thinkers of the time Darwin and Frances Galton (founder of eugenics) attend a Séance. Many people hold Darwin up as on of the fathers of current day science, yet around 15 years after Darwin publishes origin of the species he would publicly attend with a group of men trying to talk to dead people. One article does state that Darwin said it was ’all imposture’, yet the quote is very brief.

Other attendees: Author George Eliot, philologist F. W. H. Myers (who was so enthused by this experience he founded the Society of Psychical Research a few years later).
