>> Is this possible within the CoS? Or are my forms of public research in the areas of neurosciences and psychology not something the CoS would wish to associate themselves with on such a public level? Will I have to remain anonymous if I choose to do such public and professional research? How can I best assure that I am doing right by myself and by the CoS? <<
Only those officially appointed as spokespersons (such as myself) are positioned to speak on behalf of The Church of Satan
Otherwise, we do not dictate to anyone what field of endeavour they should explore. And whether you reveal your affiliations publicly is up to you - but based on the experience of many members over the years I would say it is usually more beneficial to keep one's membership private in most professional environments.
"u.v.ray is an uncompromising writer who glares at the world with bloodshot eyes. He gazes into the abyss and sees jewels of tragedy, comedy, cruelty, heroism, tenderness, darkness, grit and futility. We Are Glass is a searing collection of seventeen razor-sharp short stories; a very fine collection indeed." -- Paul D. Brazill. www.uvray.moonfruit.com
