The delightful legend of the Ong's Hat travel cult has been posted
in the form of the Incunabula Papers since the earliest days of BBS and
Internet communications. The mythos is an historical and cultural curiosity
for that reason alone.
Has the great world-mind of the telecommunication infrastructure begun to
breed its own myths? The elusiveness of the Incunabula's original
proponents, Emory Cranston (a pseudonym) and Joseph Matheny (his real
name), has spawned wild speculation that the Ong's Hat legend is nothing
but a media hoax. However there is a dark side to this story that has never
been fully told, which may help explain their circumspection.
You've got your chaos; sex magick; applied quantum physics; shadow
conspiracy; crypto-palaeontology and enlightenment hopes all wrapped up in
one neat package. What the Hell more do you want?
