  • 1937 - Crowley reports that he picked up J. W. N. Sullivan's Gallio for 3d and felt very exhausted & anxious as though death was in the air. He was afraid it might be Pearl Brooksmith. The book concerned is "Gallio or the Tyranny of Science" by J. W. N. Sullivan 90pp. Originally published in 1927. Contemporary reviews say of it "So packed with ideas it is not possible to give any adequate résumé of its contents" and "An attack on the values which science is so successfully imposing upon civilization."

  • 1901 - "Began mental muttering of 'Aum Mani Padmi Hum' while meditating on Buddha. This developed into Pratyaharic Dharana; loss of ego and a vision of mysterious power; loss of all objects mental and physical. I do not know how long this lasted. I woke meditating on Anahata. The voice of Nada was like a far-off solumn song; it became Aum only, dropping 'Mani Padmi Hum' and then was more like thunder without harmonics."
