Bags of Aleister Crowley's house go on sale

The current owners of the infamous occultist's Loch Ness home are selling bags of its charred remains.
Situated near Foyers at the south-east side of Loch Ness, Scotland, Boleskine House was built in the 18th century in an area with a long history of peculiar happenings.

Aleister Crowley - a man who was once regarded as 'the wickedest man in the world' - lived at the house between 1899 and 1933 and was said to have used it to conduct black magic rituals.

The building, which was badly damaged by two fires, was recently purchased by a group of investors who set up the Boleskine House Foundation in the hope of restoring it to its former glory.

Now in a renewed bid to raise funds, the group is selling bags of the building's charred remains - complete with a certificate of authenticity - on eBay for approximately $65 per bag.
"You are purchasing one original stone of up to 400g and one bag of charred remains from the fire on 31 July 2019 from Boleskine House," the listing reads.

The ultimate goal will be to turn the infamous abode into a spiritual retreat and guest house.

"The Boleskine estate is a treasure of heritage and history that must be secured for future generations," said co-owner Keith Readdy.

"I believe it can stand as a landmark for culture, research, and well-being that all can benefit from."

Crowley was an interesting character. I'd like to have more time to read him exstensively...well, maybe even to come to possession of some of his personal belongings.

I don't know that much about him, but I know he "inspired" some truly crazy people. L. Ron Hubbard is a case in point.

If idiots will buy a bag of charcoal for $65, more power to the seller. I don't blame them one bit.

Mysticism does give people a peculiar morality different from the good and evil taught to the masses. To get straight to the point then goodness is about indulging in all pleasures. The creator has provided those pleasures for us so when we deny ourselves them then its offensive to God. Denial is sin. Indulgence is not hedonism because we arent indulging for ourselves, we are indulging in all pleasures intentionally to keep God happy.
