Because there's never a bad time for Alan Watts, unless you're some kind of square.

Really interesting stuff, loved the references to Kali-as-Void-as-God(dess).

Still chewing on it, will try to say something worthwhile...

As I am want, I see much of the Hegelian notion of "determinate negation" in there.  Void, not as nothing in-itself, but rather the negation of Being.  Being, negated, give you the "living" principle of Becoming.  Being, negated and so the negation, negated by Being; the process is Becoming.
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasūrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira
