Description - Aleister Crowley and the Ouija Board by J. Edward Cornelius
Reveals many dark secrets and protected truths about the talking board. Complete with the 20th century's most famous magician's writings on the Ouija Board. For decades, waves of preachers, teachers and parents have condemned the Ouija Board as a devil's gateway to perilous obsessions and spiritual possessions. While these claims recall a special brand of witch-trial era hysteria, master occultist and Crowley expert, author J. Edward Cornelius defends these accusations as entirely true. The greatest ceremonial magician of the 20th century, Crowley advocated the Ouija Board as an occult tool. He strongly believed that the board utilises the same principles that were practiced by the famed Elizabethan magician John Dee, who used a crystal ball as a means of "skrying" or seeing into the invisible realms. According to Crowley the same principle holds true for the talking board but, instead of going within the invisible realms, the entities are summoned into our world in order for them to move the triangle from one letter to another to spell out messages.
