He was often referred to as \"the most evil man in the world.\"\nBiography\nWhile in Egypt, Crowley claimed to receive religious tenets from a higher power, incorporating them into the religion of Thelema. In the process, he supposedly restored knowledge of alchemy, an art lost to the centuries.\nCrowley also visited Tibet, becoming the first Westerner to study with the lamas.\nIn 1923, Crowley published Moonchild in which two groups of magicians fought over an unborn child who was potentially the Antichrist. Crowley himself tried to summon the supposed Moonchild, to no success.\nAfter Jack Parsons became leader of the Pasadena Thelema lodge, Crowley sent him a letter concerning the \"Hell Gate,\" one of seven such gates he believed to exist in the world. He encouraged Parsons to \"make use of\" this information.\nCrowley was a rampant drug user and died in 1944 at the age of 72.\nBehind the scenes\nAleister Crowley (October 12, 1875 \u2013 December 1, 1947) was an English occultist and magician who founded Thelema, a religion he developed after supposedly being visited by an entity named Aiwass."}
