A recent post from the Who Forted? blog asks Was Aleister Crowley an Extraterrestrial Medium?. The post sketches Crowley’s contact with an entity known as LAM, who bears a striking resemblance to the classic alien with which we’re all familiar.

I’d like to propose a different question: Was Aleister Crowley, along with the other contactees of the “Contactee Era” actually contacted by some other intelligence than an extraterrestrial?
Given Crowley’s occultism and solicitation of contact with non-human intelligences, you’d think people would ask this very obvious question before concluding that Crowley’s experience contributes any proof for extraterrestrials.
