    I saw that book at the bookstore and was wondering if it was good. Thanks for the recommendation. And if you like that era of music, I highly recommend The Dirt, which is the Motley Crue story as told by them. Each person pretty much told their stories as they saw them and had no idea what the others were saying. The Ozzy Osbourne autobiography is really good too.

    Bramley condemns Hubbard quite a bit throughout the book-most of the references to Hubbard I recall are in a chapter dealing with the occult as a rebellion against the Custodial Society. I seem to remember him talking about Gurgjeff ,Crawley , Hubbard ,and Parsons and the Babelon working . Spelling error intentional .

    The occult stuff is of urban legend. A tiny little truth wrapped around fabrications. What he doesn't say is that Bramley WAS a Scnist & there is plenty in that book that comes from Scn.

    I have enjoyed all of Hancock's books. Lots of awesome science & research. Have you read Richard C. Hoagland's Monuments of Mars?

    Yes i have-am pretty sure NASA is covering up a LOT-especially the Cydonia-sp-region .
    As to the occult stuff being urban legend-why then does the FBI have a dossier on Parsons and the Babelon working ? Parsons was a genius-JPL-jet propulsion lab , was also known as Jack Parsons lab . According to Parsons-he had rediscovered ''GREEK FIRE'' and that was the original power behind the jet engines. Also,Bramley also quotes Sitchkin extensively.

    I meant the occult stuff that the internet spooks like to forward about LRH. Sensational but untrue.

    Wow and I mean Wow! Just finished Ultra Marathon Man Confessions of an All-Night Runner by Dean Karnazes.

    I was dared to run a marathon last year by my sister and did it. I thought I was cool. This dude runs 200 mile races!! The book is fantastic! I can not fathom the mental toughness that this guy has. He is stupid tough!!

    Quinn I think that goes beyond tough. I can't imagine ever wanting to do that, or why anyone would want to. Who does he race against?!?! I don't want to make it sound like that's not thoroughly impressive, because it totally is. There's no way I would want that lifestyle, though, or the bodily ramifications that would come with the territory.
