Aaronovitch, well-read packrat that he is, probably knows all about Jack Parsons, rocket scientist and would-be magician, but I just learned about him. "Parsons came to believe in the reality of magic— or magick in Thelemic terms— as a force that could be explained through quantum physics." Granted Newtonian magic is a far more rational starting point than the unbelievable mishmash Crowley came up with, I think we've found the prototype of David Mellenby.
