Within the covers of this extraordinary anthology lies the profound wisdom and visionary musings of one of the most enigmatic minds of the 20th century. John Whiteside Parsons, a pioneer of rocket science and a daring occultist, defies convention and challenges the boundaries of thought with his provocative essays. From exploring the intersection of science and mysticism to delving into the depths of human consciousness, Parsons fearlessly navigates the uncharted territories of the mind. 

Second printing, 2001.

One corner of book is slightly bumped, causing a minor creasing to corner of cover and pages. Two small scratches to front cover. Crisp, clean copy otherwise. Very good or good ++.

From the back cover :
"Freedom is a two-edged sword of which one edge is liberty and the other responsibility, on which both edges are exceedingly sharp; and which is not easily handled by casual, cowardly or treacherous hands. For it has been sharpened by many conflicts, tempered in many fires, quenched by much blood, and, although it is always ready for the use of the courageous and high-hearted, it will not remain when the spirit that forged it is gone."

JOHN WHITESIDE (Jack) PARSONs (1914-1952) was a rocket scientist, occultist and member of Agapé Lodge of Aleister Crowley's Ordo Tempi Orientis. His eloquent writing on the human condition and the crisis in American society convey passion, intelligence and deep conviction. Written around 1950, these essays are now, decades later, still strikingly prophetic. His introductory essays on magick and witchcraft are classics of lucidity. This volume makes available for the first time all of Parsons' surviving essays, edited by his wife and student, Cameron, in collaboration with Frater Superior Hymenaeus Beta, the head of the O.T.O.
"No man, no group and no nation has the right to any man's individual freedom. No matter how pure the motive, how great the emergency, how high the principle, such action is nothing but tyranny."

THE ORIFLAMME is a series of monographs on magick, mysticism and the history of ideas. This first number of a new series was produced jointly by Ordo Tempi Orientis and New Falcon Publications.
