Joseph Taylor, Psycho-Radio-Cosmic, and the Militaristic Influence of Mars

Joseph Taylor was a Nelson businessman turned astrologist, who fancied himself the Clement Wragge of natural disasters. His specialty being the prediction of earthquakes buy the movement of the planets. unfortunately he lacked both Wragges scientific rigor and his accuracy, though the parallels of their interests and activities (including interest in the occult and holding of lectures on science and mysticism). Perhaps it is worth considering why despite these  superficial similarities their legacies are so different.
