Nick Herbert's tribute to Hakim Bey

Nick Herbert as Jabir, declaring Tantric Jihad. 

There have been quite a few pieces published about the late Peter Lamborn Wilson, aka Hakim Bey, but one that I'd missed until recently was "hippie physicist" Nick Herbert's piece, "Death of a Moor," published at Herbert's blog.

Herbert's "Jabir" persona came from his interactions with Wilson, and Herbert describes events which also featured Robert Anton Wilson.

""Doctor Jabir achieved the height of his Moorish identity in the call for Tantric Jihad which he has performed in venues as various as house warmings and Esalen Institute," Herbert writes.
