Of late I have been too wrapped up in material concerns (helping M move) to have much time for MOTO. There has been a bit of movement on the Golden Dawn front with Nick Farrell e-publishing as open source an important AO document from the early 20s. Poor Nick is being vilified and flamed and subject to all sorts of wot-nots by some GD folk for his action. I will have some more to say on this soon, but for now would simply ask everyone to consider the actual people involved in this. We may question the wisdom of his decision, but Nick’s intentions (borne out by his public work and service) are really beyond reproach and to get personal and nasty is just not cricket – as my teacher used to say.
Anyway… for some quick light relief I have been scanning the search terms people have plonked into Google and other beasties to find MOTO. There are the obvious ones there – like “By Names and Images” (the much delayed book), and “Golden Dawn Ritual”. The page most people get to from these searches is “Notes on an Unpublished Pentagram Diagram” which goes to show that the old ‘say its secret and it will sell’ strategy will still pay dirt in the magical community 🙂
There are some interesting ones which make me wonder about the people searching for this information (and what they thought of MOTO when they found us). For example:
- “Israel Regardie death spell”
Now is that to kill Mr Regardie (if so, a bit late) or a spell created by him to nobble someone who’s pissing you off?
Some people just want answers:
- “What does Atlantis mean to Wiccans?”
Yes, well we all wonder that. But how about,
- “Lesbian sex moves”?
I still can’t figure out what page that hit, but I am sure the searcher was mightily disappointed, though maybe less so than the person who found MOTO while searching for “Christian sex”. 🙂
Of course some people like to combine their interests, and so we have:
- “Golden Dawn mystic sex chants”
I guess the double CD gift pack is just around the corner.
- “Photos of Lisa Simpson naked”.
Seriously, what were they expecting to see?
However, my all time favourite search which found us is:
- “Aleister Crowley Steak”
Doesn’t that make the tummy rumble. Or something. 🙂
