About allengreenfield

I am a Reform Jew, following the general ideals of the 4th Platform. I have a lot of radical ideas. I am involved in anti-authoritarian movements, including Congregational Illuminism. I am a published author, specializing in "High Weirdness" and Free Illuminism, the Ancient & Primitive Rite of Memphis-Misraim, which owes a great historical debt to Freemasonry, but is a unique non-sectarian manifestation.
