    • In Japanese folklore, the Takarabune or Treasure Ship is said to be a vessel piloted through the heavens and into human ports by the Seven Lucky Gods during the first three days of the New Year. Wood blocks with an image of the Takarabune are placed beneath pillows on the night of January 2nd to help give the sleeper a happy dream, which is said to signify that the coming year will be a fortunate one.
  • Mandrakes are a type of plant root, believed to have special properties in Folklore.[4] Said to be born from a criminal's bodily fluids touching the earth, they scream when uprooted with a cry which is said to kill all who hear it, and can be used as a medicinal ingredient.

He was a member of one of the Golden Dawn's successor organizations and supported Arthur Edward Waite's reforms during one of the schisms.
