The Magic Glasses

“This Frank Harris story reads like a metaphor of Crowley's subsequent career. Biographers, consider the possible impact of this theme on Crowley's attitude to public life.”—Bill Heidrick, note on the old document project file.

“One day, a casual statement stirred me profoundly. The primary colours, you know, are red, yellow and blue. The colours shown in the rainbow vary from red to blue and violet; and the vibrations, or lengths, of the light-waves that give us violet grow shorter and shorter and, at length, give us red. *

Bill Heidrick notes: “It’s the other way around. The wavelength of the violet end of the spectrum is shorter than that of the red end.”
