today i ended up reading about certain occult figures and practices (because i heard that jimmy page was into that and i wanted to see if it was true) i ended up taking in some unpleasant information. is curiosity like that an impulse that should be avoided? it's kind of like this need to "know" everything, and google helps.

For the record, I think Jimmy Page's alleged interest in the occult is exaggerated, especially when it comes to scouring Led Zeppelin album covers and lyrics for 'satanic' imagery. All of the alleged 'occult' references in Led Zeppelin are references to either ancient mythology or Tolkien. I once got into an argument with a fundamentalist about the song 'Ramble On', he refused to believe that the references to 'Mordor' and 'Gollum' were satanic references.

It is very difficult to get stuff out of your mind once it finds its way in there. It is wise to learn to master curiosity when you know there is a good chance it will take you where you wish you hadn't gone.

You mean were NOT Satanic references?
