    ...that would be even more interesting if the words actually sounded similar, instead of him just asserting that they do.

    So essentially, Crowley thought that ancient tales of posession and demonology might have their roots in mental illness?

      It's not so much that the names of the drugs are close variants on the names of the demons, it's that were the demons not explicitly labeled as such, I would've assumed they were the names of prescription drugs.
