    What does "in nocturnal rapport ..." mean

    Here is another phrase taken from a song by Ozzy Osbourne :

    "Mr. Alarming, in nocturnal rapport ..."

    I can't understand what "in nocturnal rapport" means...

    Well, nocturnal means at night. And rapport has to do with the quality of a relationship. Maybe he is happier at night than during the day.

    well, i guess the song tittle is (mr.Crowley) correct me if im wrong, theres the same song sung by cradle of filth. its about the life of aleister crowley. Nocturnal Rapport means Crowley likes or prefer to make good Relationship, especially one of mutual trust or emotional affinity at night or at dark ways.
    sample. (a teacher trying to establish close rapport with students.)
    Better try to read Aleister Crowley's life, pretty interesting.

    Nocturnal Rapport refers to a passage taken from a rapport created by a famous anthropologist in his book the Mystic Rose. It refers to a detailed examination of how men and women perform their sexual activities and it's relation to animals. The author's analysis reflected his internal belief that we as humans are inpure thus making him look as the purest of all. Anthropologists especially this one base their beliefs on the assumption that there exists no divinity nor personification of evil, I.E. there is no heaven or hell. What makes god and the devil so powerfull in our minds is our belief in them. So if I were the Devil I would really despise this author, his 'propoganda' and anyone like him. The curious thing is that this song was written in reference to Aleister Crowley the occultist and magician, yet the anthropologist who wrote the mystic rose was named Ernest ... Crawley.

    According to the association theory in social psychology if you make a negative association with something anything related to it will be viewed negatively. So in theory if osbourne created a negative flag towards aleister crowley, anyone associated with him including his name will virtually have no value in the subconcious of anyone who has respect for the the singer.
