Oct 23 Finish outdoor work at Ravenhurst.

Oct 24 Model Train Show in Shrewsbury. Sturbridge too crowded. Return to Robinhurst Manor and find rubble plus four hen houses (?). Roof only slightly scorched is sitting on top of big pile of charcoal. Probable rock wool insulation prevented spread of fire to roof. House then burnt out from under it and the roof came down like a candle snuffer to rest on the pile. [Find out later house was struck by lightening. I'm glad I didn't buy it]. Explore Audubon Area in Barre.

Oct 29 Begin Great Talisman [The Ten Rayed Star].  

Oct 30 Salem Willows. Morn. All are present. Unanimous decisions surrounding creation of the Order of the Ten Rayed Star mark the most significant milestone to date. The things that will come from this cannot even now be measured. Even though certain activities will begin soon, the official foundings will not occur for many years. This will happen somewhere in the West, and will require a good deal of map study by me. Visit Essex Institute. Gardner-Pingree House. John Ward House. Sexy tour girl at Crowninshield-Bentley House. Lunch East at India Mall. Run into Laurie Cabot and friend. Horribles' Parade at Old Town Hall. See Laurie again. Salem Ghosts.  

Witch Dungeon Museum. Talk with one of the actresses - very nice girl. Pierce-Nichols House. Assembly House. Rope's Mansion. Witch House too crowded. Beer at Salem Marketplace. House of Seven Gables too crowded. Beer at Victoria Station. Herb shop. Crowhaven Corner. No naked Sabbat for me tonight. Visit Rachel briefly. Dinner at Marketplace. Drink Witch's Brew. Make it to Bewitching Ball at Hampton Hall, but leave after five minutes. Very little memory from here on. Lying on lawn. Nearly Full Moon rising through mist, assuring some gent that I'm all right - awaken with him bending over me in vampire costume. Walking in a bad part of town on cobblestone streets. Careening against fence post in front of Essex Institute. Passing out behind wheel of car 5 or 6 times from exhaust fumes, and Witch's Brew, on very long way home. Stop to have reason for exhaust checked. Mechanic can't find problem although he can smell the exhaust. Problem never recurs.

Oct 31 Compassion Ritual for me.

Dec 7 At 2:15 PM consecrate stone at base of Raven Hill.  

Dec 8 At 11:00 AM consecrate stone at top of Little Monadnock. 1:30 PM at top of Big Monadnock. This probably represents a record climbing time. On way up I meet a guy in an elf green coat carrying a strange walking stick. He looks much like my father. When he first sees me he falls flat on his face. For some reason I feel a little guilty about this. Shortcut straight up to summit sees me clinging with my back against a sheer rock face in a strong wind. At another point I am faced with going across a crevasse by stepping on a rock which separates two huge slabs of stone. If I dislodge the one I step on, the other two will slap together squashing me like a bug. I study this a while and then do it very quickly. See a western red squirrel at the top.

Dec 29 Outline Vis in Terra in chart form.

Dec 31 About 11:15 AM consecrate stone at the foot of Tully Mountain. About 12:30 at top of Roundtop Hill. About 1:45 at foot of Prospect Hill. Tour South Athol and Silver Lake Park.

Feb 12 c 6:30 AM Leave for Plymouth MA. Scrambled and bacon at Olsen's in Templeton. Drive fast. Reach top of Burial Hill before others arrive. Location chosen because of the superior weather on the coast at this time of year and because of the connection with Liberty and beginnings. The view is beautiful. I feel at home because there are a great number of my ancestors buried here. Britt shows up a few minutes later. 12:30 PM Amongst a splendid company of 88 revolutionary Libertarians, finish "Ritual AYW" founding the Order of Yggdrasil in the North, and the World Libertarian Order.

June 11 At 4:32 Realize that as Crowley's successor in "777" I have direct authority from him to do anything not in conflict with the law of the Aeon and can initiate who I please into what I please. This is understating things a bit. Actually on two separate occasions I have sensed the spiritual presence of Aleister Crowley in the library at Ravenhurst during periods of inspired writing. I now wish that I had logged in the date and time. On the first occasion I experienced his sanctioning of the "Three Scrolls". On the second he sanctioned World Libertarian Revolution as a fine expression in furtherance of the "Law of the New Aeon". [All this seems very bizarre and mystical to me now. I have never been one for psychic impressions or visions, but I remember the rality of all this all very clearly. There are more things in heaven and earth... 8/17/12]. c 8:15 PM Finish the

3 OTO

begun in Upper Ravenshenge at 12:48 PM.

June 19 At 3:24 PM It is a good period for dualist magicians to sit drinking Champagne with wicked ladies of beauty and glamour in the years immediately preceding the greatest of all wars. Aye, the winds of war have begun to blow again. The romance of war! The epic grandeur of war! Men and women living and loving the best way they can, caught up in a turbulence, in a whirlwind that will sweep seven continents. And when the smoke has cleared Sir Fenris will stand triumphant in the Sun, the pommel of his sword glistening. And from his lips will softly emerge the exulting adoration "This too is God".

June 20 At 4:43 PM. Receive the Sigil of Irols. [Only case where grade is out of sequence].

Ritual. During ritual immediately after (P.115) I say "I am that I am," a young man and red-haired woman approach kitchen door. All indications point to their being religious fanatics.

June 27 At 5:32 PM Finish writing "Liberty Day".

June 30 At 2:10 PM standing at northern entrance of Elfin Road into the Valley of Singing Gold I hear a crashing and see a doe crossing just north of beaver pond and then heading north on other side of Cranemere, another bigger doe. Very quickly first one is right behind her. I love them.

Walk around Boston and Filene's. Hear zither player of appreciable skill doing medieval songs. Meet Sheila at Jake's. Have Hungarian goulash for the first and hopefully the last time.

See Ginger dance and renew our acquaintance after about four years. Her tummy is as hard as a rock. See Modesty dance and am impressed with her face and smile. Meet Heidi who I later see dancing. Drink with my lady Venus-Hecate who wishes to create an aura. She is a hard little witch with a hard little witch's mind and a hard little witch's heart in a hard little witch's body. She is the only woman I know wicked enough to stand at my side through the Great Work to come. I love her and want her to share my destiny. While waiting for her to dance I see Anita dance and Leigh who acts silly and ashamed. I want Venus's hair all over me in bed. Her hair now is as long as Lady Godiva's ~ knee length.

Aug 21 Have, during the past weeks, come to realize that all I have ever suffered was a direct result of my own bad moral character and the resulting ignorance therefrom. The world is truly what it is and my past present and future are perfect.

Learn "almost everything" and that all I want will happen with hard work from palmist in Stuart Street. Observe that rotund gentleman with Venus seems to be outdoing himself, and unfortunately me, ~ "the second magnum and the fourth cigar". A pleasant new acquaintance in the form of a sexy barmaid Jane informs me that Michele who is crawling around the stage like a goofy (but very sensuous) kid is the "star". Marcy puts a good tease on me outback as I sit near the door. As I leave, Venus gives me an empty look. By morning I have tested and found true the temper of the steel within me. I think I must forget Venus.

Sep 7 Am joyously left with my feeling that the growth of Mankind is "perfect" because the best mankind is capable of is always happening at any given moment. This idea is really from Madame Blavatsky.

Buy a vial of bayberry oil from a young maiden. Secure a Half-Moonface pendant from goldsmith. Talk with a foreign fishwife at the Tournaments after ale at the Royale Kitchens. Journey to Boston. Rib at Jake's. Computer couple at next table impress me with the "aristocratic" nastiness of the so-called "educated" elements in New England. Talk with Malika about Venus and find that the dainty in question works "seven nights a week" as opposed to the three she claimed recently. I am pleased by this.

Oct 29 After first appointment with Dr. Dobrin arrive c 11:30 AM in Salem. Tour Witch House. Lunch at Lobster Shanty. Because I am not assertive enough about ordering a cheeseburger quickly, I miss the parade by five minutes. Haunted House is too busy. See two beautiful Witches at Crowhaven Corner. Visit Britt for only a brief interlude. Tour Peabody Museum. Seek Haunted Schooner. Have a beer at Victoria Station.  

Visit the House of Seven Gables. [See genealogy in future for involvement of my uncle Nicholas Noyes in the Salem Witch Trials and the influence of this on Nathaniel Hawthorne's story]. Tour Salem Maritime. Change into tuxedo and cape at Peabody. Hear group called Witch play on steps of Old Towne Hall. Am approached and insulted very hatefully by Christian bigot who resembles, and no doubt is, a Skid Row bum. Enjoy lobster at Shanty and talk with intelligent well-traveled chap from Boston. As I return to car to get ticket one member of a gang of thugs just misses me with a huge bat. As I walk up Chestnut Street am accosted four times by insulting Christian bigots dressed and groomed very shabbily. One asks me about Jesus. I reply "The demon slave? The Bolshevik degenerate? The impotent weakling?" He screams "Jesus Christ! It's Jesus Christ! Jesus Christ!" After following me for about two blocks and repeating this eighty to a hundred times, I inform him that he is violating my right to privacy, but he goes right on "Jesus, Man! It's Jesus Christ, Man! Jesus Christ died for you, Man! Jesus loves you, Man!" This about twenty more times. I then give him one last warning and launch a half-hearted side kick to his stomach. Being very athletic and about nineteen years old he sidesteps quickly and the follow through causes me to nearly lose my footing. He disappears and I continue my quest for Hamilton Hall, owned by Harvard University, the ballroom floor is suspended by giant springs. Use of this place is booked ahead five years. When I arrive there is a crowd of fanatical Christian bigots accosting guests as they enter. I inform them "Oh, do we have plans for you!" and make the gesture of throat cutting. One of them comes into the lobby and tries to convert the policeman on duty who acquiesces because she uses sexual tactics. Once upstairs many humorous costumes are seen: big guy in drag, two bees, an alien, a carrot, a large rabbit with a large Playboy Bunny, a nun doing the dirty boogie. Many impressive costumes: Tar-Tar, Eva Gabor, gangster and his lady, 1930s children, male + female Death, Countess, girl resembling Venus as Mick Jagger type Fu Manschu, Witch resembling Linda somewhat, Christopher Columbus, Wizard, army officer. Also seen are a rather vulnerable girl reminding me of Jean Fuller and a disarming beauty who is vaguely reminiscent of Shirley MacClain at her sexiest and who I find intimidating. Talk briefly with girl dressed as Zorro and with flapper who is very glamorous and effervescently happy. An unlikely Dracula wins the prize and is announced by media people. He wins an all expense paid trip to Transylvania. I feel saturated and yet sober and leave c 11:15. Leave gas cap on bumper at self-service station and stop well down the road to find it amazingly still on the bumper.

Nov 1 At 2:15 PM finish writing "The Christian Zealot". Text here follows:

TheChristian Zealot

The fanatical Christian Zealot, in the past as now, represents the lowest elements in society - wild eyed, frequently unwashed, recently "re-born" or "saved" from a life of masochistic, self-indulgent dissipation, mindlessly screaming out the name of their vagabond prophet in place of a God which is beyond their youthful comprehension, bitterly jealous of the freedom of choice given by a wealth they are too lazy and "spiritual" to earn for themselves, thrilled with the danger of insulting producing members of society in the streets, and always with a sickeningly sweet, mocking "gentleness" in their tone veneering their bigotry and the envious resentment they feel at the strength, moderation, and stability of all those "sinners" who are so reluctant to feed and clothe them in their adventurous and devolutionary "work".

Also, of course, in the past as now, there is often the problem of drug induced visions of "God". (31) Such "visionary" rabble, lacking any capacity for reason, are desirous of someone to blame for the wasted years they have caused themselves through their own bad moral character. They are reflexively antagonistic even to people whose values they know absolutely nothing about, simply because their masters have designated everyone else as needing "enlightenment".

In the end we will "enlighten" you, Oh Shamefast Servants of Vileness!

c 4:00 PM Since Chestnut Street I have come to think of Salem as a place wherein the struggle of light against darkness is more clearly polarized than elsewhere - the brave young Witches conducting business openly, going about as they will receiving insult from the violent street trash about their appearance and from Christian bigots about their religion. I conclude that the best way of dealing with the sick chanting bigots is to take their pamphlets and then undermine their movement by sending educational material to the address of their leaders listed thereon. We can always resort to more exciting methods as their numbers increase.

Nov 6 Neglect to mention in my comments on Salem that the number of insults received excepting those from the fanatical street trash are perfectly balanced by the comments received from nice people - the insults always from young sexually uncertain males at a distance when one's back is turned and well past them, and the compliments always from post-adolescent, confident, healthy individuals, mainly women in pairs to one's face, near at hand as one approaches. I will also mention my assumption that the large number of auto horn blowings probably divides along these same lines. It seems that most of life's unpleasantness is caused by boys - both young and old.

Lunch at fish market on Town Wharf - lobster roll in the wind. Visit Ocean Spray Center, Pilgrim Hall, and the Wax Museum. Ride train at Edaville. Boston. Supper at Mac Donald's on Tremont, where I see striking blonde wearing black shoes with high red heels. Spend a disenchanting evening at Jerome's, the Naked Eye, and head home early.

1984

"1984" has always been here of course, although superficially different from Orwell's version, the point being that wars and economic cycles are planned and that history is re-written or has the important facts left out in the first place. A good example of "doublethink" is calling institutional robbery "taxes". Other examples are the "Bank Secrecy Act" and the "Monetary Control Act". The one thing Orwell mentioned that we didn't have when he wrote the book or don't have even now is mandatory closed circuit TV monitors in houses. We do have spy satellites, of course. These are not needed however, by the international bankers who manipulate economic information and politicians. They accomplish their goals simply by misdirecting the populace. Two important instruments of this are the National Education Association and the National Council of Churches. The wrong choices made in voting take care of policy implementation. World Libertarian Revolution is the only alternative to slavery.

Jan 23 Realize that preparation for Fimbulvetr must be my main task. Nothing can stop nuclear war now. [This shows the futility of prediction. At this juncture there were very few who suspect that Russia will go capitalist or that the US will slow down the impact of the otherwise inevitable depression by adopting the Japanese method of incrementally increasing the money supply. I am proud to say at least that I adapted to this war scenario, while at the same time persisting with my Libertarian work to try to end all war, and never became discouraged by any of it].

After he leaves, I of necessity learn how to do wedge turns because there is no other way down. At end of Trigger hit very icy Tiger expert slope and take quite a beating. After beef stew, "Toasted Almonds," and medical exam spend the rest of day perfecting my new skills on Smith, then Phelps, then Sidearm. I am now a skier and will master every mountain I can. Chicken Teriyaki at B. May Denny's - superb. Eve. Enjoy MTV for the first time [back when they still had music].

Summary 1964-84

Following my Graduation Night hangover, in Fall of 1964, I did one tri-mester at Northeastern University and then dropped out. In Fall of 1965 I returned to Northeastern in the evening division, working by day throughout this period in my father's antique shop. In Fall of 1966 I transferred into the pre-law division at Suffolk University as a psych major working summers with my father on colonial restorations. In the sophomore year I decided against law in favor of clinical psych. After finding out in the senior year that clinical psychologists make little money for the first twenty years, I completed my major with an A- average, and in Summer of 1970, went into the motel business with my father. After two years of this I spent a year researching and indexing Neolithic artifacts, and in Fall of 1973, began the restoration of as old inn where I now live. In Fall of 1976 I was on the road peddling Tiffany lampshades around New England and in Spring of 1977 became a real estate broker selling colonial properties and farms locally. In Fall of 1978 I developed a line of cast metal paperweights and by Summer of 1980 was dealing internationally in financial brokerage, major commercial properties, gold, and crude oil contracts. Since Fall of 1981 I have been completing a two volume compendium of arcane knowledge which I began in 1978.

Since Graduation I have traveled very little outside of New England, but since 1978 have climbed every mountain locally. Two weeks ago I returned from a dazzling tour of Quebec, Montreal, and Ottawa during which I gained ten pounds.

My future plans include writing epic novels and short stories, oil painting, plus world travel with climbing or skiing of most major mountains in non-hostile countries. That's it for now.

May the Great Solar Orb smile upon you all.

Arrive Naked c 4:00 wearing heather stripped slacks, blue shirt, suede coat, Bill Blass 90 proof. Ask Cathy to dinner. Prime rib alone at Jake's. Return. Get to know Gwyneth somewhat. Drink with Rose who tells me that Venus has moved back to New York. Say Hi to Tara. See Linda Lamia under strobe light, ask to buy her a drink, but she is tied up. Am dazzled by Gisele, but she is tied up too. Visit Mardigras where I see nice brunette in red and meet Collete who makes date to meet me at the Bradford, but doesn't show up. I head back seeing "Love for Lydia" type girl out front of Bradford. See strange Venus type girl at Mardigras.

Dec 16 Scrambled and very good sausage. More apricot brandy. After usual promenade down Washington where I see a glimpse of blonde I met at Suffolk, arrive at Naked c 11:50 AM. Opens noon Sundays. First spy Justine up front with Liz. Ask Liz about Kim and Terry who are not there. Meet Dirk at Jake's. Shrimp at China Pearl. He agrees that I can use my paraphrasals of his words as quotations. Seeing Justine dance to the song "Shiny Boots" is a spiritual rush of pure Evil. At one point she comes around bar seeking matches and I ignore her. Then on other side she is talking very intimately with Malika and scowls at me. Head home early. "Some o' these women gonna let my ham bone spoil (but not all of them)".

Dec 23 Perfect my Rock n' Roll dancing style to the Nth degree. I will never use it - too exhibitionistic, but it's nice to know it's there.

Dec 24 c 10:30 PM Receive very romantic phone call from Mrs. Randall.

1985

Jan 7 Up early. Transact Postal business in Gardner. Lost in thought miss 495 exit and press on to Bradford by noon. This is good since Postal business here takes 2+1/2 hours. At this time I am gearing up for possible invasion of the US by Russia with advantage to me in diversification of whereabouts via multiple PO boxes. [After events in 1988 I allow all these to expire]. Apricot Brandy on empty stomach. Talk to welfare cretins at Wendy's as I wait for double bacon cheeseburger. Hit Naked wearing red cords, pink stripped shirt, red sweater, Tabac. Meet Cashmere and a Justine-looking girl who seems to like me as much as I liked the real Justine. Prime rib at Jake's. Meet Katy [destined to become the most loved of my life]. We talk of many things all evening. I love her, but the age difference (18/38) worries me. Drink with Gisele who tells me she is going into real estate law at Harvard [I now think this was a cowshit story]. As Katy leaves I go out into snowstorm for weeds. Gisele drinks with club owner while I wait. She then sits on my legs like a bird.

Jan 8 Up early. Sausage and poached eggs. Visit Dr. Weis at 9:30 AM. Visit Post Office Square. As before, except blue stripped shirt, visit Naked where Liz makes golden Dreams. Talk to bosses about Maureen. Shrimp at China Pearl. Terry teases ot back. Visit Back Bay Annex on Postal business. See Katy who says Hi. Terry asks me for a drink, but I say no and leave after seeing Katy dance.

Jan 11 Have decided to make Katy my girlfriend if possible". It is better to love..."

Jan 21 Begin boozing c 10:30 AM [This sounds bad, but I had discovered that if one starts and finishes early enough to go to bed completely sober, that there is no hangover the next day ~ 8/22/12]. Listen to music and by 1:30 PM know that I must see Katy. Plug in diesel and leave by c 3:00 PM. Have liver and onions at Cinnamon's. Check in and arrive at Naked by 6:00 PM. No Katy. Sheena sits down. She smells sexy and we talk. Later I buy her a drink outback. Enjoy Vienna Schnitzel at Jake's c 8:00 PM, but can't finish so bring back with noodles and Brussels sprouts for Gisele who is delighted but must dance first. When she is through I spy her outback about to partake of Chinese food with probably same Chinese man who she was with last Halloween Night. Malika has left for the night. Modesty can't eat meat. Dorrie has eaten and doesn't know what Vienna Schnitzel is. Finally I feed Treva who cleans the plate and is appreciative. I'm wearing blue stripped pants, brown turtleneck, leather coat, Bill Blass 90. Retire early.

Jan 22 Up early. Poached and bacon. Wearing tan slacks, blue sweater w blue shirt, leather coat, Bill Blass 90, visit Sandy at Paul Revere House. After very ironically being mistaken for a priest in search of certificates, I lunch at MacDonald's on Washington before hitting Naked c 1:30 PM. I ask Liz if she received lost shopping list and she denies it. Sheena comes around smelling even sexier, but I shoot her down. Loud barmaid from outback comes up front and tells Liz that I use drinks as an excuse to talk to her. I go outback and sit next to Justine who has for some time been drinking with a fat guy. Loud barmaid informs me that Liz told her I am writing her love letters. I "explain" and speak to Liz. When Justine dances, my counting money seems to annoy her. At some point I speak to her ascertaining her lack of family relation to Doug Tishler because of slight family-type resemblance, plus they are both from D. C. and both attended American University. Also a good excuse to speak to Justine. Outback later she dances while Faith gives a message to a Chinese man resembling Charles Bronson. He orders Champagne and gives Justine a glass. How I miss Katy. Visit Ho Jo in Concord on way home. While eating turkey, exchange smart mouth with some big stupid boys.

Feb 5 Get out a bit late and tour Worcester Museum of Art where I am very impressed with the European collections and have a nice chat with an older woman. Enjoy Big Beef cheeseburger and butterscotch frappe at Friendly's on way to dentist. Visit Lou Horton's. Get Levis. Boston. Snowing when I arrive c 4:30 at Bradford. Wearing tan slacks, blue ski sweater, blue shirt, and Pierre Cardin, see Justine outback with obese gentleman drinking Champagne. Faith is drunk falling down on stage. Justine stands up on seat. See Justine dance smiling like a happy child at hippie girl in audience. I believe that no man, even I, could make her smile that way. Buy drinks for Modesty outback where we are puzzled about Liza. We discuss dogs and horses then Malika "who once had the little pony tail so sleeka" joins us briefly. Justine leaves c 7:00 PM with a big sack slung over her shoulder. c 8 PM Enjoy rib at Jake's. Gisele shows up briefly at the Naked but leaves. Retire 10 PM.

Feb 6 Arise early. Still snowing. Bacon and poached served by Rodey MacDowell type chap who now has severely stylized ultra-blonde hair and Rhinestones in his ears. After many phone calls and much letter writing, check out at 11:30 AM. Visit bank on Tremont. Am disappointed at MacCormick. Lunch at MacDonald's on Washington. Buy certificates from Sisters. Visit Naked. Liz tells me she has worked there seven years - would be since c Feb 1978. Buy a drink for Cashmere who is my new pony tail girl. Gisele comes in c 4:00 PM, sits down, waives to me, and leaves almost immediately. c 5:30 Shrimp and Golden Dreams at China Pearl. Upon returning, drink with Katy covering much familiar ground. When she goes to dance we make tentative date. As Katy comes on outback Linda joins me. She is very stimulating, but I excuse myself for Katy's last song. Wearing tan slacks, black turtleneck, leather coat, Pierre Cardin. Leave 10 PM arriving home c 12:30 AM.

Feb 7 Call Katy at 11 AM. Guy answers and she is just awaking. She is one of the most feminine girls I have ever known.

Feb 11 Call Katy at 11 AM to confirm our date. She seems unenthusiastic. By afternoon I am renewed in my initial impression of her frivolity and have decided to forget the date. She is a pouty baby and needs spanking.

Feb 13 Diane who again is unbearably sexy tells me she is a "born again Christian". Despite spiritual monism the world has continued to function according to natural dualistic principles, spiritual monism simply providing a convenient ego defense mechanism to hide often basically evil behavior from oneself and others. So many others are in it mainly for the social life. Hypocrisy though is such a bore, so timid and time consuming. Pagans, however, like Caligula, spoil it for everybody by the counter-reactions they elicit with their own excesses.

Feb 1985 Jehovah's Witnesses come by and "presume".

OTO Notes:
 
The premise of OTO activity is the utilization of "sex magick."
The first nine digress involve only heterosexual methodology.
Crowley later created two more degrees for those so inclined.
 
I approached OTO from the standpoint of Libertarian Quest rather than the attainment of personal power, wore a hooded black robe, and achieved the neuronal imprinting for each degree via deep concentration rather than orgasm.
 

Footnotes:

32. "Malika, me Malika. Teasing all the men at the Naked Bah-ha.
Malika, me Malika. Teasing all the men at the Naked Bah.
I said me Malikaah. Who could be sweet-ah?
Prancing up and down, teasing with her little tail.
Bringing excitement to all the young males.
I said me Malika, me Malika. Teasing all the men at the Naked Bah."
