- Thelema Now! Guest: Sister Hattie Quinn on Benjamin Franklin (53 minutes)
Sister Hattie Quinn’s lecture on Benjamin Franklin at NOTOCON was an eye opener! Titled, “Revolution and Revelation: The Magic of Benjamin Franklin” is described as follows:
Benjamin Franklin is one of the most notable founding fathers of the United States of America. His quotable quotes, pithy epigraphs, and brilliant writing have amused us and provoked us for over two centuries. Equally he is known for his sexual prowess, wild rock star reputation, gentle civility, and genius mind. A prolific inventor and experimental scientist, Franklin refashioned the world in more ways than most of us realize.
He embodied the Promethean Spirit, more Luciferian than Lord Byron. His visible actions are the temporal footprint of a God transmigrating through history. He stole fire from the heavens and guided it safely into the womb of the Earth. His legacy is not merely one of political revolution or scientific endeavor. He was not merely a humorist and philosopher, even. Beneath all of these names and forms lies the truth of the living spirit of revelation, undermining and upturning the staid structures and conditionings of Culture and Consciousness, so that the Divine Light of the Void might shine through and all might be renewed by this philosopher’s stolen stone.
- Thelema Now! Guest: George Pendle (58 minutes)
You know that kooky TV show “Strange Angel” on CBS All Access (which no longer streams through Amazon Prime – thanks Amazon)?
Well, it’s based on a book of the same name by George Pendle! George talks to Harper Feist about the book, the TV show, Jack Parson, and rocket science. Because Harper knows a thing or two about blowing stuff up. Listen and learn.
