Where has all the mystery gone?

We are born in mystery, we live in mystery, and we die in mystery. The value of psychic experience is that it deepens the mystery, not that it dispels it - Huston Smith Tales of Wonder
Christmas should be a celebration of the miracle and mystery of the Nativity. So it is appropriate at this time to remember the recent death of Colin Wilson; a passing that was shamefully but predictably ignored by the mainstream media. His most celebrated book was The Outsider, but his exploration of the mysterious in The Occult will always be special for me. Far from being an apologia for black magic, The Occult has a remarkable contemporary relevance.
