If one of you catches me with a crucifix around my neck a decade from now you better not mention how you remember my musings of a Platonist nature from back in the day, unless you want to be taken to an alleyway. No no just be subtle about it. See, I started the day researching ceremonial magic and didn’t get very far–not because I think that would be implausible in general, or implausible for a minority, rather because I don’t see it flying with the flock, and we need to be concerned with these things.

Believe me or not, I don’t care, there are certain nonfictional elements in H. P.
