James Wasserman is the founder of the Ordo Templi Orientis’ (O.T.O.) NYC Tahuti Lodge and one of the foremost practitioners of the magical system of Aleister Crowley. His most recent book is In the Center of the Fire: A Memoir of the Occult 1966-1989, which chronicles the occult scene in New York City in the 1970s and ’80s. In this segment, he elucidates the Thelemic conception of history as a progression of aeons, represented by the Egyptian gods Isis, Osiris and Horus.
Imperium Pictures is currently completing The Gent (a feature starring Genesis P-Orridge, Douglas Rushkoff et al) and a short on solid rocket fuel developer/occultist Jack Parsons in which British director Ken Russell portrays Aleister Crowley.
