Aleister Crowley and the Beatles

I was reading up on him and find that the reason the Beatles put him on one of their covers was because of his almost anarchic individualism and his escape from Christian moral limitations that were up until the 60s a very real problem. 

conspiracy theories are abound on this topic, yet really you need only understand that 60s culture was one of liberation, and the Beatles were at the crest of that wave for a time, and just as Crowley travelled east to learn from the world, so did the Beatles.  Although, come to think of it, the results were far from perfect, and the spirituality in the end no better than other faiths, more free and personal, more about living life, exploring life.  And yet, still limited by the fact of the delusions you live are just illusions dancing over reality, they are not the real world, just the mask it wears when we want to something other than it's bare face. 

I will be uploading a video soon to my main youtube channel on Aleister Cowley, I will try to remember to note that here.  https://www.youtube.com/user/robertwlester
