Ominous Duchy of Cornwall-owned stretch of Dartmoor which played host to sinister rituals
Police had reports of a crude stone altar, possibly bloodstained, next to a wooden stake, while a roughly built den was found near the scene of an attack. On one occasion, sheep carcasses were laid in the shape of a seven-pointed star, a symbol linked to the notorious Victorian occultist Aleister Crowley, once described as “the wickedest man in the world”.
That's a lot of sheep carcasses . . .
a seven-pointed star, a symbol linked to the notorious Victorian occultist Aleister Crowley ...
The evil 7-pointed star is also used by the California and Arizona Highway Patrol
Gestalt Gestapo, and Shire Reeves in other States, too ...
In my youngest Thelemic days I recall wondering at the coincidence.
If I recall correctly I believe that is the sheriff's badge thru the whole country.
At least I believe I seent it in Collar Rado too and in Alabama on the TV.
Oh, there's plenty of variation ...
I never saw an 8, but they're out there
And a 9? This is from Chicago 1920s
The points may symbolize something, but the meaning has been lost. The Lost Word is still Lost, and authority comes in any pointies or shields, as long as it's shiny.
Interesting thank you.
Just the facts ma'am, just the facts. *dun dun dun*
Lol crazy..subconscious recognised that badge and brought up the above quote without my real self knowing that was the badge!
Sgt. Friday's badge bears the badge number "714".
This was a source of great amusement to 1970s teenagers who were fanciers of Quaaludes/"sopors", a depressant (sold in the rest of the world under the name Mandrax/"mandies") very popular at that time. The Quaalude pills were stamped "714".
