In this post we will dive deeper in the relationship between the three Rocketeers and the development of Scientology on the foundation of EVIL, and the birth of the Space Program on the foundation of pagan ritual, sacrifice and worship of demonic spirits.  How the world was launched into the BEAST TECHNOLOGY that MOLDS AND COUNTROLS the World in which we live today.

In 1941, Marvel Whiteside Parsons, a scientist, engineer and expert in explosives, who had legally changed his name from Marvel to John and was normally referred to as “Jack”  Source
was known by other names as well…

Scientists, aware of his tremendous contributions to space science, generally call him John Parsons, and they’ve even named a crater on the moon after him. Those occultists who know of his work in their very specialized arts call him Jack Parsons, the name he himself preferred; in some magick lodges they consider him second only to Aleister Crowley as a progenitor of the New Aeon. His best-known book, Freedom Is A Two-Edged Sword, which increasingly influences the libertarian and anarchist movements, gives his name as John Whiteside Parsons on the cover and title page.   Source

 “The one super-secret sentence that Scientology is built on is ‘Do as thou wilt—that is the whole of the law.’” The words belong to L. Ron Hubbard, Jr., not Sr.. Speaking of Scientology, the son added: “It came from the black magic, from Crowley.”

Hubbard Sr. was a confessed admirer of Crowley, calling him “my very good friend.” According to Hubbard Jr., his father prepared for his Philadelphia Doctorate Course lecture series, taped in 1952, by reading Crowley.  Source


Hubbard believed he was Satan incarnate!

L. Ron Hubbard Jr. Speaks On His Father

From an interview with L Ron Hubbard Jr.

Ron Jr. says that he remembers much of his childhood. He claims to recall, at six years, a vivid scene of his father performing an abortion ritual on his mother with a coat hanger.

Ron Hubbard Jr. remembers that when he was ten years old, his father, in an attempt to get his son in tune with his black magic worship, laced the young Hubbard’s bubble gum with Phenobarbital. According to Ron Jr. drugs were an important part of Ron Jr.’s growing up, as his father believed that they were the best way to get closer to Satan–the Antichrist of black magic.

“In my father’s private circle,” Ron Jr explains, “there were lots of mistresses. When I was younger, I participated in private orgies with him and three or four other women. His theory was that one has to open or crack a woman’s soul in order for the satanic power to pour through it and into him. It got kind of far out, culminating in a variety of sex acts. Dad also had an incredibly violent temper. He was into S & M and would beat his mistresses and shoot them full of drugs.”

When asked by a interviewer how this “soul-cracking” worked, L Ron Hubbard Jr said, “The explanation is sort of long and complicated. The basic rationale is that there are some powers in this universe that are pretty strong.

“As an example, Hitler was involved in the same black magic and the same occult practices that my father was. The identical ones. Which, as I have said, stem clear back to before Egyptian times. It’s a very secret thing. Very powerful and very workable and very dangerous.

Brainwashing is nothing compared to it. The proper term would be “soul cracking.”

“It’s like cracking open the soul, which then opens various doors to the power that exists, the satanic and demonic powers. Simply put, it’s like a tunnel or an avenue or a doorway. Pulling that power into yourself through another person–and using women, especially is incredibly insidious.

“It makes Dr. Fu Manchu look like a kindergarten student. It is the ultimate vampirism, the ultimate mind f**k. Instead of going for blood, you’re going for their soul. And you take drugs in order to reach that state where you can, quite literally, like a psychic hammer, break their soul, and pull the power through.

“He designed his Scientology Operating Thetan techniques (Scientology’s secret initiations) to do the same thing. But, of course, it takes a couple of hundred hours of auditing and mega thousands of dollars for the privilege of having your head turned into a glass Humpty Dumpty–shattered into a million pieces. It may sound like incredible gibberish, but it made my father a fortune.”

The materials of the Operating Thetan techniques [the Fishman documents] are the reason for the raids mentioned earlier.)

“… Also I’ve got to complete this by saying that he thought of himself as the Beast 666 Incarnate.” Interviewer: “The devil?” Ron Jr: “Yes. Aleister Crowley thought of himself as such. And when Crowley died in 1947 my father then decided that he should wear the cloak of the beast; and become the most powerful being in the universe.

Scientology is black magic that is spread out over a long time period. To perform black magic generally takes a few hours or at most; a few weeks. But in Scientology it is stretched out over a lifetime and so you don’t see it. Black magic is the inner core of Scientology and it is probably the only part of Scientology that really works.

“Also you’ve got to realize that my father did not worship Satan. He thought he was Satan. He was one with Satan. He had a direct pipeline of communication and power with him. My father wouldn’t have worshipped anything, I mean. When you think you’re the most powerful being in the universe, you have no respect for anything let alone worship.

“… The one super-secret sentence that Scientology is built on is: ‘Do as thou wilt. That is the whole of the law.’ It also comes from the black magic, from Aleister Crowley. It means that you are a law unto yourself, that you are above the law, that you create your own law. You are above any other human considerations.”

The following is from a piece, written by L. Ron Hubbard Jr. about his father in 1985 entitled “Philadelphia.”

“We were in Philadelphia. It was November 1952. Dianetics was all but forgotten; Scientology, a new science,’ had become the focus of attention. Every night, in the hotel, in preparation for the next day’s lecture, he’d pace the floor, exhilarated by this or that passage from Aleister Crowley’s writings. Just a month before, he had been in London, where he had finally been able to quench his thirst; to fill his cup with the true, raw, naked power of magic. The lust of centuries at his very fingertips.

To stroke and taste the environs of the Great Beast, to fondle Crowley’s books, papers, and memorabilia had filled him with pure ecstasy! In London he had acquired, at last, the final keys; enabling him to take his place upon the Throne of the Beast,’ to which he firmly believed himself to be the rightful heir. The tech gushed forth and resulted in the Philadelphia Doctorate Course lectures.”



The Wickedest Man in the World. The Beast of Boleskine

The Best of Boleskine sparked decades of speculation about the occult·

Jul 1, 2017

Imagine what it would feel like if William Butler Yeats wrote a poem about you.  Now imagine that poem described you as a “rough beast” slouching towards Bethlehem.

Though the interpretation is far the consensus, some believe that the line referred to a singular man named Aleister Crowley, who was known as the “Beast of Boleskine” (for reasons I’ll explain below). Nicknamed “the wickedest man in the world” for his bisexuality and exploration of the occult, Crowley’s life bridged two centuries and half a dozen worlds. He came of age as the 19th century rolled over into the 20th, watching as the Victorian era ended and shifting balances of power in Europe shaped his native England, and the world.

In 1899, at the age of twenty-five, Crowley purchased Boleskine House, a cottage perched near Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. In the 10th century, a church had stood on the site — until, according to myth, it somehow caught on fire, fatally trapping the entire congregation inside.

Crowley believed that the house’s secluded location (and perhaps its gruesome history) made it the ideal setting to perform rituals from the Book of Abramelin. If you’re not familiar with that text, you’re not alone: Crowley founded a religion he called Thelema, which has a persistent following to this day. At Boleskine House, Crowley spent months performing a ritual with a small group of followers in an effort to make contact with his guardian angel — but had to abandon the project before it was complete. The full story is perhaps best told by Richard MacLean Smith in an episode (“Who Was Aiwass?”) of his podcast, Unexplained.

Beyond the religious dimensions of his legacy, Crowley’s cultural impact is almost unbelievable. His American protege Jack Parsons went on to develop the jet propulsion system. Crowley’s influence trickled through Parsons to L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. He also socialized with Aldous Huxley, Roald Dahl, and Ian Fleming, who surely heard rumors that Crowley was a double agent during WWI. William S. Burroughs, David Bowie, and Timothy Leary were also aware of Crowley’s work, and he is mentioned in A Moveable Feast, Hemingway’s memoir of his time in Paris. If you’re a fan of The X Files, you might even remember Crowley High School from S2, which features a group of devil-worshipping teachers, a reanimated fetal pig, and a deeply creepy science teacher named Mrs. Paddock.

As for Boleskine House: It was purchased by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page in the 1990s, and ultimately — perhaps mysteriously — burned down in 2015.

Did Jack Parsons Really See Something in the Arroyo Triangle Connecting the Colorado Street Bridge, Cobb Estate, and Devil’s Gate Dam?

Connecting the dots of Devil’s Gate Dam, the Suicide Bridge, and the Cobb Estate, you’ll find the Jet Propulsion Laboratory nearby. 

Pasadena is one of the most popular areas to live in the Greater Los Angeles area. When you look at its suburban splendor, you’d never guess that it hides at least one tale of cosmic horror to rival any true story you’ve ever heard. Pasadena’s occult history can be traced back to one man who built a cutting edge facility at the edge of an alleged place of power called the Arroyo Triangle. Connecting the dots of Devil’s Gate Dam, the Suicide Bridge, and the Cobb Estate, you’ll find the Jet Propulsion Laboratory nearby. Legend has it that this is no coincidence. And though the main character of this story, Jack Parsons, has only one known link to a point in the Arroyo Triangle, it continues to be one of the city’s most enthralling legends of genius, obsession, and the occult.

Arroyo Triangle Point #1: The Cobb Estate

Before the Cobb Estate served as an alleged point on the Arroyo Triangle, the forests of the foothills north of Pasadena were often referred to as “the haunted forest.” Undeterred by the name, Charles Cobb, who had made a fortune in the lumber industry, decided it was the perfect spot for his retirement mansion. So, in 1918, he completed construction on a Spanish-themed property that would be known as the Cobb Estate. We can only assume Cobb was happy enough with his decision. He continued living in the massive home until his death in 1939. At the direction of his last will, the local chapter of Masons inherited all 107 acres of his land.

The Fruitless Marx Era of the Cobb Estate

The Marx Brothers famously purchased the estate in 1956 which is when urban legends about the property began to arise. Whatever plans the legendary comedians had for the mansion were never to be. Three years later, they had the structure razed and the land sat vacant, slowly reclaimed by nature. Or the spirits, depending on who you ask.

During this period, several plans were proposed, including utilizing the land as a cemetery. But the idea of a graveyard in an allegedly haunted forest didn’t sit too well with the neighbors who were clutching their home values at the thought. Ultimately, it was a large donation from an anonymous source that allowed the city of Pasadena to purchase the remnants of the Cobb Estate. They summarily handed ownership off to the U.S. Forest Service.

Hiking Through the Cobb Estate’s Ghost

These days, hikers can challenge themselves to traverse the natural terrain that has mostly overtaken the last vestiges of the structure. But by night, the haunted forest seems to live up to its name. Believers claim the majority of the paranormal activity happens near the crumbling steps leading up to the mansion that no longer exists. Yet, nocturnal visitors report strange laughter, blood curdling screams, and eerie lights populating the impenetrable darkness of the surrounding forest.

Many visitors don’t actually make it beyond the still-standing front gates of the Cobb Estate. They’re spooky enough on their own; so much so that they were used prominently in the classic 1978 horror film Phantasm.

Arroyo Triangle Point #2: The Suicide Bridge

The next point of the Arroyo Triangle is significantly more sinister. The Cobb Estate may be spooky, but it doesn’t have much of a death toll. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of the Colorado Street Bridge, more notoriously known as the Suicide Bridge. In the early 1900s, the bridge earned its nickname by being a particularly hot spot to leap to your death. By 1929, dozens of people had already plunged into oblivion off its balustrades. One unfortunate worker even lost his balance during the bridge’s construction, falling to his demise in the ravine below. The Great Depression further contributed to the Suicide Bridge’s notoriety, inspiring a suicide spike.

One of the most enduring legends of the Suicide Bridge purports that a young mother mounted the ominous arches of the looming bridge, her baby clutched to her. Prior to diving into the great beyond, she threw the baby over the edge. Miraculously, the baby survived the drop, a tangle of tree limbs managing to break its fall early enough. On the other hand, the mother found the death she so desperately sought at the bottom of the 150-foot fall.

The Modern Era of the Colorado Street Bridge

Proving that suicide isn’t a passing fad, people have continued throwing themselves from the Colorado Street Bridge over the decades. In more recent years, Pasadena has tried to prevent suicides at the site. But where there’s a will, there’s often a way. Despite the city installing an eight foot high barrier, model and reality television personality Sam Sarpong still managed to take his life in 2015 in one of the bridge’s more publicized suicides.

The city made additional efforts by installing a 10 foot tall chain link fence in 2016 to deter jumpers from the bridge’s seating alcoves. Over the years, the alcoves had proven to be a depressingly popular launching point for jumpers. The following year, nine suicides were reported at the site. After a harrowing 13 hour negotiation in which Pasadena police successfully talked a potential jumper down, the fences were extended to cover the entirety of the bridge.

But the Suicide Bridge continues to be a sadly attractive beacon for those wanting to end it all. Just last month, Pasadena police negotiated with a woman to climb down from the bridge’s ledge. If you visit the bridge yourself, you’ll find melted candles amidst photos of those who lost their will to go on and memorials old and new locked to the fences. Currently, Pasadena is finalizing the design for permanent barriers in the hopes they will overcome the tragic call of the bridge once and for all.

The Enigmatic Duality of Jack Parsons

Before we visit the final, and arguably most disturbing, of the Arroyo Triangle’s points, we must introduce a man whose achievements, ambition, and thirst for esoteric knowledge illuminated the area in all its potential paranormal power. Jack Parsons was a man of science in a way that few could ever hope to match. Yet, despite the technological strides he shared with the world, he held a fixation on the occult that transcended obsession. Under the teachings of his mentor, Aleister Crowley, he adhered to the philosophy that every individual holds a “True Will.” And, to ascend to that driving purpose in life, it was man’s responsibility to adopt whatever means necessary to achieve it. For Parsons, this meant looking beyond science and ego and into the occult art of magick.

The average person has a tendency to get dismissive whenever the “M” word enters the equation. But Parsons wasn’t some garden variety kook. In his time, he was actually one of the most inspiring and daring minds in a relatively new field known as “rocket science.” And who knows where America’s space program would be today without Parsons’ contributions? Yet, you could be forgiven if you’d never heard of him. The legendary Jet Propulsion Laboratory that he founded, still famously operating today out of Pasadena, doesn’t like to get much into their history with Parsons. That’s because the story of an occultist with a penchant for drug use and sex magick doesn’t really fit the narrative of America’s bold scientific push to the moon and beyond. Unfortunately for those looking for a clean story, Parsons was brilliant.

The Founding of Jack Parsons’ Jet Propulsion Laboratory

It was 1933 when 29-year-old Jack Parsons built the first ever solid-fuel rocket engine. Yet, it wasn’t until 1938 that he got significant attention from the scientific community, after he and a couple of close colleagues ran a test of a static motor rocket that could sustain for over a minute. This trio was regularly referred to as “The Suicide Squad” for their unconventional, often life-threatening methods of testing that flagrantly flew in the face of safe and ethical scientific processes.

Yet, Parsons’ results were too significant to be ignored. So, at the prompting of CalTech and supported by government funding, Parsons moved his operations to the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena. The objective? Investigate the potential for Jet-Assisted Take Off (JATO). And it was with that mission that the earliest incarnation of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) was founded after an initial successful rocket test on Halloween night in 1936. And, no, the date probably wasn’t a coincidence.

Through the modern lens, it’s tempting to consider Parsons the Elon Musk of his time. But while Parsons had been raised in wealth, the Great Depression had considerably stripped his family resources. Parsons made do with what he could get, often scavenging for parts and creating astounding scientific feats with the bare minimum. By all accounts, he had more in common with the Professor from Gilligan’s Island, crafting radios from coconuts and palm fronds. Under sparse conditions, Parsons and his crew still managed to develop the first rocket engine in history to utilize castable composite propellant, changing what was possible for humankind. For the first time ever, people could feasibly visit space.

Jack Parsons’ Ascension Through the Ordo Templi Orientis

Parsons obviously had a passion (and a gift) for rocket science. But it wasn’t his only passion. Nor was it his greatest passion. And this calls into question what he believed his “True Will” to actually be. Perhaps rockets simply served as vehicles to transcend the boundaries imposed on mankind. And ultimately, Parsons’ great passions could all be boiled down to a desire to rid himself of any semblance of restraint.

To that point, during the early years of JPL, Parsons was also renting out the rooms of his Orange Avenue property to a gallery of like minded bohemians. And though he was making strides in the scientific community, he was committing himself even more to his occult studies. As a devout student of Crowley, Parsons believed in the philosophies expressed by a religious movement called Thelema. More specifically, he was a member of California’s Thelemic chapter, the Ordo Templi Orientis (or OTO). Taking a particular interest in highly potent sex magick, he rapidly ascended through the ranks of the OTO.

It’s important to recognize that Thelema was Parsons’ religion. When a choice needed to be made between his studies at the University of Southern California and the occult, he unequivocally chose the occult. He actively recruited new Thelemites, including co-workers and his then-wife Helen Northrup. And he donated the vast majority of his money to Thelema.

Arroyo Triangle Point #3: Devil’s Gate Dam

During his time in Pasadena, Parsons became convinced that a certain area just south of JPL held an immense spiritual power. Enter the final and most notorious point of the Arroyo Triangle: the Devil’s Gate Dam. Strategically built in 1920 at the point when the Arroyo Seco is at its most narrow, the Devil’s Gate Dam was Los Angeles County’s first flood control dam. It earned its name from a distinctive rock formation said to resemble Satan in a brooding profile.

Rumor has it that the Native American tribes indigenous to the area went out of their way to avoid this section of the Arroyo Seco. Allegedly, they feared it was a gateway to a world beyond this one. Then, there are those who claim that Devil’s Gate Dam was just like any other dam… until Parsons took an interest in it. He was known to visit Devil’s Gate Dam, often performing rituals in its shadows to give JPL’s rocket tests a cosmically auspicious influence.

Thelema Above All

While Parsons continued to thrive in the OTO, his life outside of religion was becoming increasingly erratic. Under the OTO’s encouragement, he was liberally experimenting with opiates, methamphetamines, and cocaine. His marriage to Helen Northrup was in tatters. After several OTO-sanctioned extramarital affairs, he left Helen for her 17-year-old sister, Sara. And though his brilliance in the field of rocket science never dimmed, his interest in following safety protocol was plummeting to new lows. In 1944, JPL pushed its eccentric founder out, pressuring him to sell any stock he had remaining in the company. At every opportunity, Parsons had wholeheartedly chosen Thelema. And in his darkest moments, his faith was stronger than ever.

Using the money he’d gained from his stocks, Parsons purchased property in Pasadena at 1003 Orange Grove Avenue. Under this roof, he continued his pursuit of both rocket science and the occult with abandon… and without oversight. It became a beacon for aspiring artists and musicians alongside nihilists and anarchists. Parsons’ bohemian Pleasure Island eventually attracted an ex-naval officer and aspiring science fiction writer named L. Ron Hubbard. Yes, that L. Ron Hubbard. And the two formed a fast friendship that found them encouraging one another to breach new heights (or new lows, depending on your perspective).

Jack Parsons Orchestrates the Moonchild of Babalon

At Parsons’ urging, Hubbard and even Crowley himself became convinced that the Devil’s Gate Dam offered a gateway to great energy and power. Together, the three initiated a Thelemic program entitled “Babalon Working”. The objective? Use the portal at Devil’s Gate Dam to summon the Thelemic goddess Babalon and immaculately impregnate her so that she would give birth to the “Moonchild”, a sort of Antichrist figure that would bring an end to Judeo-Christian dominance on earth. Some have even hypothesized that the strange essence at the heart of the dam had inspired Parsons’ placement of JPL from the very beginning.

As 1945 became 1946, Parsons and Hubbard took a trip to the desert to visit a nexus point of spiritual energy. Amidst their rituals, Parsons was seduced by a vision of a fiery-haired woman riding astride a great beast. He referred to her as “Lady Babalon” and was convinced he was meant to conjure her and serve as her consort. Parsons and Hubbard remained in the desert for three days attempting to conjure the physical manifestation of Babalon to no avail.

Perhaps discouraged by these results, Hubbard fled Pasadena for Miami upon their return from the desert. He took along $10,000 of Parsons’ money, not to mention Parsons’ then-lover, Sara. Of course, Hubbard would leave Thelema and go on to found Scientology, but that’s another story.

Rising Stars and a Setting Moons

Parsons didn’t have much time to grieve the loss of his wife, his friend, and his money. Because as soon as he returned from the desert, he was greeted by a fiery-haired woman at his Orange Grove Avenue address. She was looking for a room. Marjorie Cameron would go on to become his muse, his wife, and ultimately his own personal Babalon. While his relationship with Cameron wasn’t picture-perfect, they enjoyed many days and nights hazardously exploring rocket science, sex magick, and even absinthe infusion.

However, he would never conceive his Moonchild with her. On June 17, 1952, while feverishly attempting to fulfill an order of film explosives, an explosion consumed the entire lower level of Parsons’ residence. An excruciating 37 minutes later (one minute for each year of his life), he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Darkest Years of Devil’s Gate Dam

In the years following Parsons’ death, the story of the Devil’s Gate Dam became much darker. Attempts to conjure a Moonchild or perform Thelemic rituals remain in the realm of theology. But between 1956 to 1960, events took a turn for the tragically concrete.

It was during this brief stretch of time that four children disappeared. Each of them were visiting Devil’s Gate Dam at the times of their disappearances. It wasn’t until 1970 that convicted serial killer Mack Ray Edwards confessed to the kidnap and murder of two of these children. Their bodies were never found and are believed to be encased in the concrete of LA’s freeways. The other two disappearances remain unsolved.

Jack Parsons’ Invisible, Silent Legacy

JPL opens its doors to the public on occasion. Now owned and operated by NASA, the facility’s tour guides tend to skirt questions about Parsons’ involvement in JPL’s early days. Over the decades, the compound and its staff have been instrumental in some of our country’s landmark moments in space exploration. Missions such as Voyager 1, Voyager 2, and Mars Rover Curiosity all arose from the efforts of JPL. If some sinister force lingers over the JPL campus, you’d be hard-pressed to find it. Even deer graze and bound on its verdant lawns regularly.

Yet, people haven’t forgotten Jack Parsons. His legacy sustains on whispers, attracting those open to the spaces between science and magick. The mysticism of the Arroyo Triangle may be nothing more than an urban legend. But when Parsons broke convention and dared to look beyond established boundaries, he undeniably saw things few eyes have the privilege or misfortune to see. And when he looked into that storied stretch of Pasadena, he continued to watch something that we may never understand.

Devil’s Gate Dam

Oddity Odysseys
https://www.oddityodysseys.com › devils-gate-dam

Where is the entrance to hell located?  I may just be hidden near a dam in the heart of Pasadena, California.

Devil’s Gate Dam is easily visible and accessible from the I-210 Freeway.  In fact, thousands of people drive right past this haunted structure every day, and many do not even know it’s dark story.  The dam was built in the 1920s to help control seasonal flooding along the Arroyo Seco River.  Built at the narrowest point in the river, the dam was named for a sharp outcropping of rocks that seemed to resemble the face of the devil.


In the 1940s, a group of occultists held rituals inside the dam intended to open up a gateway to hell.  Jack Parsons, a co-founder of Nasa’s Jet Propulsion laboratory along with Aleister Crowley and L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, were among the group.  It is uncertain if they were successful in their efforts to open a hell gateway, and in the 1950s, Jack Parsons was killed in an accidental explosion.

In the years following, several children went missing near the dam, some while they were biking in the canyon, some allegedly seeming to disappear into thin air right in front of their parents.  Among these were Tommy Bowman and Bruce Kremen.

Although the gorge is now dammed up, the Arroyo Seco still has a decent flow of water running though it during the rainy season.  It was reported by early settlers that the rapids flowing through the gorge made a laughing sound, which they attributed to the river’s relationship with the coyote spirit.

Many dark stories surround the Devil’s Gate Dam.  Are they true, or just the works of active imaginations over the years?

What does Aleister CrowleyLRon Hubbard and Rocketeer, Jack Parsons all have in common? Devil’s Gate Dam! But, is it a really portal to …


TUFFY CANYONS, Belize — I have never felt closer to the sky than when I was 170 feet under the ocean here.

It happened on Easter morning. A half-dozen of us slipped out of a boat on the barrier reef here and followed our dive master, Michael, into a canyon, dropping through jagged openings past profusions of coral waving like wheat in the wind. There were clouds of fish, turtles and the occasional shark.

Then the ocean floor suddenly fell away. We were hovering like unharnessed window washers on a vast wall of rock and coral, the outermost edge of the second-longest barrier reef in the world, the boundary of the big deep.

We were looking for a pod of dolphins that had graced these parts the day before. But I wasn’t prepared for infinity.

The color down there was the mother of all blues. I found it oddly comforting. Maybe it was just narcosis of the deep, but I’ve never felt so connected to the cosmos.

I’ve been diving on and off for about 11 years. I got my certificate the day the space shuttle Columbia burned up over Texas with seven astronauts aboard, effectively ending the shuttle era.

I climbed out of the water that day and went to my cottage on the island of Dominica and stared up at Orion, recalling my boyhood dreams of space travel and saying goodbye to them. The stars would never be my destination.

I’m no marine biologist. I dive for the childish joy of flying, zooming up and down like Superman, and for the Zen joy of being surrounded by colorful fish you can’t catch, like errant thoughts you can’t follow.

But the cosmos has a way of catching me. All the aspirations of the sky are concentrated down below. Inner space and outer space, yinning and yanging together. The sea is its own cosmos, but it is inextricably linked to the vast invisible ocean around us. The hydrogen in its water molecules was made in the Big Bang, the oxygen in them was made in a star — a marriage made literally in heaven.

The electrons that glue those molecules together attained their masses and glueyness during a subtle shift in the properties of the vacuum, when the Higgs field and its famous particle, the Higgs boson, kicked in a trillionth of a second after the universe was born.

Whatever meaning we can ascribe to the universe arose in these depths and those mysterious processes. All the logic of outer space, its vistas and apocalypses concentrated in this blue caldron of creativity and possibility, the restless sifting of chance, adaptation, survival and extinction. Life began percolating somewhere hereabout 3.5 billion years ago, crawling out into a new oxygenated atmosphere three billion years after that.

Indeed the seas are a gene soup, according to the biologist J. Craig Venter, who has spent the last few years trawling for microbes in his yacht Sorcerer II and has discovered at least six million new genes. What they do is anyone’s guess.

Inevitably as you hang in the blue void, you wonder if this magic has occurred anywhere else. I’ve spent my share of time gazing up at the Milky Way from campfires or my old backyard on summer evenings in the Catskills, wondering if anyone is, was or will be out there, or how we would ever know or meet them in the confounding depths of space and time.

It always makes me feel lonely.

For the last two decades, NASA’s mantra in the search for life out there has been “follow the water.”

And last month NASA requested ideas for a robot mission to Jupiter’s most enigmatic moon, Europa, whose sheath of ice is thought to encase an ocean with more water than is contained on the oceans of Earth. John M. Grunsfeld, the former astronaut who heads NASA’s space science directorate, said, “Europa is one of the most interesting sites in our solar system in the search for life beyond Earth.”

At least for now, the plans don’t include landing on Europa or drilling through the ice with a fishing pole or something more sophisticated, but one priority is to look for future landing sites on the moon. The agency’s managers are looking for ideas that would cost less than $1 billion. Congress has already appropriated almost $100 million over the next two years to start developing technology for the trip. If that doesn’t work, there is always Saturn’s moon Enceladus, which apparently also has a hidden ocean and is spurting water and who knows what else from cracks known as “tiger stripes” near its South Pole. So there is some hope of yet discovering company in the form of pond slime or better in the solar system before the end of the century.

Perhaps it is the fate of cold, dark matter to be the cradle for warm, wet matter — at least in this universe.

We don’t know if this is a lucky universe or whether life is inevitable in some sense, or — for that matter — what life is. Most astrobiologists I know say they will recognize it when they see it.

In the meantime there is life down there, and it’s hard not to feel connected when you are in the womb, so to speak. It’s one place I’m never lonely.

There is a certain pose you associate with dive masters, swimming backward, legs akimbo as if in a Barcalounger, encouraging you onward. After a few minutes on the wall, Michael beckoned, thumbs upward, and we began the long slow ascent, keeping our eyes out for those dolphins, which did not appear again.

Back to the sunny surface. Back to cosmic loneliness.

Space Is an Ocean


Space is an ocean—and I’m not speaking metaphorically. Ocean defines both “the entire body of salt water that covers approximately 72% of earth’s surface,” and any “great expanse.”

Early civilizations believed that the ocean and the stars above were linked inextricably. In the age of exploration, the ocean represented the ultimate unknown whose guideposts were the heavens. Earlier in this century, science fiction writers—our prophets of the medium—referred to the cosmos as “ocean space,” whose conquest would inevitably be done by “space ships.” Gene Roddenberry, creator of the television series “Star Trek,” was right on the money when he made the Starship Enterprise a naval vessel.

For Americans about to enter the next millennium, the coming age of space will be an era of exploitation as well as exploration, and the nation requires a philosophical approach to the use, exploration, and—if need be—defense of space that is best suited for the ocean-like cosmic environment. That philosophy is inherently naval in tone and tradition.

A naval philosophy of space—the application of naval organizations and traditions to the use of space—would permit full integration of efforts from sea and land into the heavens. Under this philosophy, we would think in terms of voyages rather than missions. A team-oriented concept of crew would prevail, not the lone eagle approach that shaped the conquest of the air, but led to organizational schisms. More important, we would exploit space not as a separate region, but as a continuation of the spectrum of media—from the ocean depths to the heavens above—in which mankind can live and explore for extended periods in a mutually supportive fashion.

As regards defense, requiring a naval tone is not a nuance. Underlying the Navy’s efforts to ensure mastery of the seas is the realization that the ultimate purpose of such mastery is to affect directly events on the land. Inherent in the natural jointness of the naval approach shared by the Navy and Marine Corps, is the history of integration of forces capable of acting throughout the earthly spectrum of land, sea and air. Thus it is natural for naval forces to view such wartime missions as close air support as integral to, not separate from, the range of missions conducted by naval air forces.

A naval philosophy toward spacefaring and space defense would ensure that “close space support” would not become an orphaned mission in any battle for the outer reaches. At the same time, the core competencies of the expeditionary naval services could be applied to extended deployments in space during peace and times of potential conflict.

Space is not just an extension of the air. Space is an ocean, and oceans are where navies go.

Ocean Worlds: Water in the Solar System and Beyond

The story of oceans is the story of life. Life as we know it requires three ingredients: energy, organic molecules, and liquid water. Our search for life beyond Earth is, in part, a search for planets and moons that harbor substantial liquid water. We call these places “ocean worlds,” and we’re learning that they could be ubiquitous in the galaxy.

Oceans define our home planet, covering the majority of Earth’s surface and driving the water cycle that dominates our land and atmosphere. But more profound still, the story of our oceans places our home in a far larger context that reaches deep into the universe and places us in a rich family of ocean worlds that span our solar system and beyond.
