Many thanks to Scottish WildCat:
|Boleskine House in Scotland, the dark-seat of Aleister Crowley's OTO legacy in Scotland virtually burns to the ground.|
|Aftermath! Strangely the fire was not thought to be deliberate and fortuitously ocurred while the present Dutch owners were out shopping.|
Crowley and his devil-worshipping followers are said to have used the estate to make talismans and offered animal sacrifices to Satan."
David Bowie and Alan Rickman, both connected to the occult, died from Cancer at age 69.
|The Beast of Boleskine finally exorcised.|
|The One Ring a symbolic Horcrux which has many examples in history and fiction.|
|The toppling of occult OTO power.|
