Review by Bonnie Schmaus
A quote from the back cover – the book is a “deep exploration of occulture (the liminal space where art and magic meet)” …. Carl “reveals the integral role played by magic and occultism in the development of culture throughout history”… ideas from “Carl Jung, Anton LaVey, Paul Bowles, Aleister Crowley, and Rudolf Stein”.
It’s an education on the dynamics of groups across cultures and classes – a helpful and fascinating read.
I found the story on film maker Stanley Kubrick, quite amusing. He claimed in his later years: “ I perpetuated a huge fraud ” – in regards to the Apollo 8 moon landing.
Both books offer lots of insight and are written through conversations with some of our more thoughtful and provocative creators, thinkers and tinkerers.
