We look into the life, afterlife, and after-afterlife of one of the great weirdos of history: the Count of St. Germain. Known only by this title, the mysterious count was a staple of the royal courts of Europe during the 1700s. Seemingly never aging, with no real name, he was known in the court of Louis XV as an alchemist, mystic, philosopher, violinist, composer, diplomat, and spy. Contemporaries said he claimed himself to be 500 years old, and after his death some documents claim that he showed up to warn Marie Antoinette of the coming French revolution. Then theosophy and a very weird cult called the I AM activity turned him into an "Ascended Master" and we've all been suffering since.
