The Wave Chapter 20: Black Lightning Strikes… or Marjoe Gortner Meets Ted Patrick

Black Lightning Strikes…
or Marjoe Gortner
Meets Ted Patrick

After reading about Greenbaum programming, we more or less have some idea of the kinds of things that might be going on in the so-called real world, i.e., human engineered mind programming; and we have a lot to think about. We have also talked about people who may have enormous creative potential and who may be special targets for mind programming activities, whether human originated or from another density, and we have talked about what seems to be, more or less, an ongoing experiment in social and philosophical control whereby masses of people can be influenced to think in certain “loops” that may have no basis in reality.

When speaking of these mind programming activities, we have to ask, are we talking about just a small group? Certainly, the logistics of such activity make us think that it must be a somewhat limited activity. Of course, many readers of this material will think that whatever ideas he/she espouses on the subject, based upon his/her religious or cultural upbringing, are exempt from questioning — they are the right ones. Or, he/she has attached himself to this or that teaching, whether it be channeled or scientific or ethnic or whatever, and because it feels right, or because his/her “guide” or inner guidance system of whatever nature, has confirmed it for him/her, it is not subject to being a program. In fact, this is one of the very control mechanisms we’ll be talking about in this chapter.

On the subject of the logistics of mind programming, I want to remind the reader of the following:

January 21, 1995

Q: (L) How “long”, and I put long in quotes, because we know, as you say, there is no time, but how long, as we measure it, have the Grays been interacting with our race? The Grays, not the Lizards; the Grays, the cybergenetic probes?

A: Time travelers, therefore, “Time is ongoing”.

Q: (L) Okay, recently I read a couple of books J gave me, Knight in Shining Armor [by Jude Deveraux] and Replay [by Ken Grimwood]. Both of these books described time travel. 1

A: No, not finished with answer. Do you understand the gravity of last response?

Q: (L) They are time travelers, they can move forward and backward in time, they can play games with our heads… (T) They can set up the past to create a future they want. (D) They can organize things so that they can create the energy that they need… (L) They can also make things look good, make them feel good, make them seem good, they can make you have an idea one minute, and then the next minute, create some sort of situation that confirms that idea…

A: When you asked how long, of course it is totally unlimited, is it not?

Q: (L) That’s not good. If they were to move back through space-time and alter an event in our past, would that alteration in the past instantaneously alter our present as well?

A: Has over and over and over.

Q: (D) So they do it over and over and over, constantly? (L) So, at each…

A: You just are not yet aware, and have no idea of the ramifications!!!

Q: (L) We’re getting a little glimmer! (T) The ramifications of being able to move in and out of time and manipulate it the way you want… (J) And the ramifications of what they’re doing to us and what they will do to us, over and over. (L) So, in other words, our only real prayer in this whole damn situation is to get out of this density level. That’s what they’re saying, that’s what it sounds like to me.

A: Close.

Q: (L) Because, otherwise, we’re just literally, as in that book, stuck in the replay over and over and over, and the Holocaust could happen over and over, and we could just, you know… Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun… over and over and over again. (T) We’re stuck in a time loop; they’re putting us in a time loop. (J) Are we in a time loop?

A: Yes.

I once had what I thought was a rather silly idea. I was reading alien abduction cases, and the descriptions were so similar that I wondered if it was the same few guys who constantly traveled back and forth in time over and over again abducting first one person, then another and then another and so on. If they could keep going back to the same moment in time, but to a different person, the same little group could abduct millions of people, seemingly simultaneously. It may not have been such a silly idea. Some of you may remember what Ark wrote about channeling in High Strangeness:

We need now to return to our question: if communications from the future are possible, why don’t we receive these broadcasts on a daily basis? If our minds can serve as receivers, then why aren’t we all aware of the transmissions?

I think that the answer has to do with multiple realities and branching universes, and perhaps any civilization, which would receive messages from the future on a daily basis, has ceased to exist because communication through time is a very dangerous game. You produce paradoxes and these paradoxes remove the paradoxical universes from the repository of possible universes; if you create a universe with paradoxes, it destroys itself either completely or partially. Perhaps just intelligence is removed from this universe because it is intelligence that creates paradox. Perhaps we are very fortunate that even if we can receive some of these messages from the future, we still continue to exist.

Suppose our civilization were to advance to the point where everyone can communicate with themselves in the past; they have a computer with a special program and peripheral device that does this. It becomes the latest fad: everyone is communicating with themselves in the past to warn of dangers or upcoming calamities or bad choices, or to give lottery numbers or winning horses. But, what is seen as a ‘bad choice’ or ‘calamity’ for one could be seen to be a ‘good event’ or ‘benefit’ to someone else!

So, the next step would be that ‘hackers’ would begin to break into the systems and send false communications into the past to deliberately create bad choices and calamities for some in order to produce benefits for themselves or others.

Then, the first individual would see that false information has been sent and would go into their system and go back even earlier to warn themselves that false information was going to be sent back by an ‘imposter’ and how to tell that it was false.

Then the hacker would see this, and go back in time to an even earlier moment and give false information that someone was going to send false information (that was really true) that false information (that was really false) was going to be sent, thereby confusing the issue.

This process could go on endlessly with constant and repeated communications into the past, one contradicting the other, one signal canceling out the other, with the result that it would be exactly the same as if there were no communication into the past!

There is, also, the very interesting possibility that the above scenario is exactly what is taking place in our world.

Then, we have that most interesting remark (also quoted in High Strangeness) made by our demon-possessed subject, Ann Haywood, who said:

“She puts the robe around me and then my mind separates from my body. I can look back and see it lying there. Then we go up through the ceiling, pop out the roof, and fly into space. One night the Lady took me back in time. We were in a foreign country and the people wore old-fashioned clothes. The Lady took on the appearance of a beautiful woman in a blue robe. She performed miracles for them…” Suddenly Ann’s face turned ashen and she asked to be excused. Her scream of pain was heard from the bathroom where she had taken refuge. When Ann came out, she was sniffling and holding her abdomen. The Lady had savagely attacked her for revealing that down through history, creatures like the Lady have taken the form of saints. They then use the gullibility of humankind to misguide and misinform people so that they believe they are seeing miracles performed. Ann begged the newsman to delete that portion of the interview. (Osborn, 1983; emphasis added)

If these ideas are anywhere close to what we must deal with, then I can only quote from Laurel and Hardy: It’s a fine pickle we’ve gotten ourselves into, isn’t it Ollie?

A correspondent recently wrote to me:

The last parts of [Soul Hackers] were a lot about mind programming. Well, something happened in “real life” that in a way REALLY scared me. I only have started to realize very recently that this might/could be just another example of how STS 4D tries “to get to us”, “us” being especially the more “active” ones in the field, meaning those that work “in the field”, so to speak. (I am a magazine publisher, specializing in metaphysical subjects.)

Logically, that’s not so much to these STS guys’ liking and the “bag of tricks” they may have available is phenomenal. I would like to ask you to give your opinion about what happened to me. Was it an incredible scheme of manipulation, defying all credibility, just set up to deceive me, or what?

A first remark: 4D STS can somehow “monitor” our “weakest” spots. For some it is money, others power, others wealth, still others fame, etc. I guess mine would be “in the emotional area”, and do they know how to “move in”…

It starts in the fall of 1996; I was in LA attending a “Mind, Body, Spirit” event, to see if there was anything there worthwhile that I wanted to cover. There happened to be one, just one, metaphysical teaching that really got my attention… It just felt good, peaceful, mystical…

I talked with two guys; they were extremely polite and gave me a book. I read it later on and, well, I sort of liked it. It was a sort of story, bordering reality and SF [Science Fiction] (At least, so I thought). It was clearly an introduction book. Easy to read, to get people’s attention — just introducing the subject.

Now, we jump to the spring of 1997. I saw a specific web site (about walk-ins) and just “registered” it. Nothing to do with the aforementioned “New Age Teaching”. End of June 1997: I attend a New Age trade show in Birmingham; guess what, there they (the aforementioned New Age group, NOT the “walk-in” group) were again! I had lunch with the two people in the booth. Nice meeting. And I offered to help them.

Then, second week of September 1997… I am driving on the M25 around London, and “out of nowhere” a sort of telepathic communication gets started. Not frightening, it was actually “funny” in a strange way. It never had happened to me like that (at that time I was guessing that “my guidance” was really moving up a notch! Well, I didn’t know the Cs web site yet). It was about a conference I should attend somewhere nearby Glastonbury, UK. The conference was about walk-ins. I found out the dates. (Coincidence! It was just the weekend I had decided to “keep free for me”!) So, I went.

Very nice conference it was. And there I meet “someone”. Yup, an American girl. Stunning redhead! All kinds of the strangest things start to happen… Synchronicities all over the place, people actually started saying things about me when looking at her — talking about a magic (or should I say “magick”??) weekend! It didn’t stop there… “Romance” followed — oh so swiftly…TOO swiftly I’d say now. A real “love bite”!

Well, hey, I was experiencing a living fairytale here! So, she decides to stay after the weekend. But guess what? She just “happened” to be deeply involved in this very same New Age teaching I had recently become aware of and had decided to become involved in!! And, as it just “happened”, I was just going to a show to “introduce” the material there. Well, she could come along and help, right??? Give a little talk, meet the people. What a coincidence!

But now, she starts “bombarding” me with the principles of this “teaching”. At times, I even had to get a bit aggressive to avoid this continual effort to “brainwash” me. At this point, the group sent me a second book, and somehow, this changed my views entirely regarding this teaching. (Divine STO intervention?) After reading this second book, I could see that this teaching was a THREAT of the worst kind!

But, because of this woman, and the emotional ties, I kept this to myself because there were plans to visit the group’s European HQ. I thought that, at least, I would be able to examine things further and make a more thorough assessment. While there, I experienced, (no kidding), what I think was a direct attack of psychic black magic. It freaked me out!! It was me — psychically — against eight or so tough people! It actually made me sick.

And of course, there were the ongoing big confrontations with the girl about this, so she went home. One month later I was in the US to try to figure out what the meaning of all this was. I don’t think I ever lived through a more confusing month than the month of November 1997.

To make a long story short: Because I was not willing to be brainwashed by this group, I went back home a “heartbroken man”. Couldn’t figure out what the heck had happened. This was nothing like me, still it happened TO me. There followed 15 months of silence. Oh yes, I DID get regular mailings from that group — a continuous barrage of material.

The story had another chapter in a “less dense” way just this past year. A last meeting in the states with the redhead where she made a last “attempt” (pretty forced…) to “turn me on” to that teaching, right? Well, it didn’t work. After a last e-mail conversation with her, the mailings also stopped from the main HQ.

Conclusion: can it be that this whole “play” was just staged to get me “hooked up” in that bl**dy teaching??? They probably considered me “useful” for their organization? I never could figure out where they got their funds from — and they were WELL funded!

The scary part is, how could all these — at first sight — totally non-related events be set up and coordinated??? The whole thing played out in 3-4 countries, on several continents, involved different, non-related (I guess…) organizations; a concerted attack on me where I am “weakest”, the most incredible “miracles” happened to make it seem that “the hand of God” was upon me, in contradiction to what I KNEW to be true about this teaching — that it was a real THREAT to mankind! Just a big cosmic drama.

The thing is, I believe it to be possible that not one of them (maybe 1 or 2 of the “heads” in the UK excepted, they gave me a very “strange” feeling) is consciously aware of what’s going on!

“They” (whoever or whatever was behind this) made one HUGE mistake: the timing was just too perfect… The same day that this manipulation was finally stopped by me, a new one was started — or at least it was tried!! I am getting VERRRRY careful now.

OK, I know, Knowledge Protects… I learned that part at least. But how many others are led into similar things in similar ways and don’t have the knowledge about New Age teachings that I did so that, with the second book I was able to discern and make a decision, against all the synchronicities and “confirmations” and so forth that have become “bread and butter” for the New Age set?

This correspondent was really on the fast track, I would say, but this is not the only story of this kind I have heard, not to mention what I have lived personally. My correspondent makes some crucial points about our subject here when he asks, “The scary part is, how could all these — at first sight — totally non-related events be set up and coordinated?” And he adds, “The thing is, I believe it to be possible that not one of them (maybe one or two of the heads in the UK excepted, they gave me a very strange feeling) is consciously aware of what’s going on!

Oh, so true! The most useful tools of fourth density STS are those who simply do not believe in a control system, and do not think that they, themselves, can be used. The instant you think this, is the instant you are vulnerable.

In answer to the question of how such a cosmic drama could be orchestrated, just keep in mind the time travel factor, and the following:

November 19, 1994

A: Disinformation comes from seemingly reliable sources. It is extremely important for you to not gather false knowledge, as it is more damaging than no knowledge at all. Remember knowledge protects, ignorance endangers. The information you speak of, T, was given to you deliberately because you and J and others have been targeted due to your intense interest in level of density 4 through 7 subject matter. You have already been documented as a “threat”. […] Remember, disinformation is very effective when delivered by highly trained sources because hypnotic and transdimensional techniques are used thereby causing electronic anomalies to follow suggestion causing perceived confirmation to occur.

Q: (T) What I want to know is who has the power and ability to set up these kinds of confirmations or synchronicities?

A: Same forces spreading disinformation: Brotherhood / Consortium / Illuminati / New World Order / “Antichrist” / Lizards.

Q: (T) But I’m just a nobody. Why would they go to all trouble…

A: Several answers follow: number one, Nobody is a “nobody”. Number two, it is no trouble at all for aforementioned forces to give seemingly individualized attention to anybody. Number three, T has been targeted and so has J and others because you are on the right track. Number four, this area is currently a “hot bed” of activity and extremely rapidly expanding awareness.

When I was first reading the Greenbaum material, I kept thinking that this was more or less a shadow of what hyperdimensional beings must be capable of doing. The fact that we are even aware of the Greenbaum program is due to errors or glitches in the programs of some of the people. What about the people who have no glitches? What about the people who are perfectly programmed via truly alien technology? How could we ever tell? At one point, we questioned the Cassiopaeans a bit more closely about fourth density programming:

July 19, 1995

Q: (L) Our first question is: In a previous session we were given a small dissertation on the process of abduction. It was described for us in some detail. [This is included in High Strangeness.] Now, what we would like to know is, if our souls are abducted from our bodies and then used as a pattern for remolecularization in fourth density, is there ever, at any time, a remolecularized clone that is retained in fourth density even after the soul has been returned to its original body?

A: No, it’s not possible.

Q: (L) So, they don’t keep a pattern or clone of any of us after they have abducted us, “they” being a general term?

A: No.

Q: (L) Do any of the STS beings have the ability to cause us physical problems, or mental or emotional problems when not in direct contact with us?

A: Certainly.

Q: (L) How is this done?

A: A number of different methods used.

Q: (L) Could you give us one or two examples of how this is done?

A: There are many: sound wave manipulation of the ultra-high frequency range would be one.

Q: (L) What do these sound waves in the ultra-high frequencies do?

A: They can alter chemical balances within the body of the subject, thereby also the brain, using the physical path to cause distress by altering these chemical imbalances into place.

Q: (L) Do these ultra-high frequency sound waves ever carry messages in terms of pre-coded suggestions that are triggered by these waves?

A: Messages are not carried in ultra-high frequency sound waves. Now, you are talking about an entirely different method. Sound wave focusing is designed to alter body and brain chemistry in order to alter such things as physical sensations, emotions, and so forth, which then may lead to the altering of mental thought patterns. But messages are not sent by ultra-high frequency sound waves. Messages are sent by something called Free Formal Imaging.

Q: (L) And what does that describe?

A: That describes the transference of thought.

Q: (L) And how is that done? At what frequency is it done?

A: Not correct concept. There is no “frequency” as such involved. There is methodology that, again, unfortunately, you do not understand. However, since you seek answers to all questions, the only possible way to explain is to simply say a thought is formed in one realm and sent to a second realm, which is yours.

Q: (L) Okay. Can it be sent to a directed target?

A: Absolutely.

Q: (L) Now, the question has arisen that, since other dimensional beings have the ability to kidnap or abduct or forcibly extract souls, do they also have the capability of manipulating our soul essences after they have left our bodies during the transition to fifth density?

A: Not correct. You see when your physical body expires, and you enter fifth density, this is done one way and one way only: by passing through a conduit which opens specifically for the purpose of transference from third density to fifth density. Now, something often referred to in your terminology as a silver thread, is like a closed line, which opens when this conduit is needed. That’s rather awkward, but it’s the only way to describe it. So that when the physical body terminates, this line is opened forming a conduit through which the soul passes naturally. However, part of the existence of this conduit is that it is absolutely impenetrable by any force from any density level. Therefore, souls in the process of transferring from third density to fifth density cannot in any way be molested or tampered with. And it should be mentioned here also that the soul imprint of the physical body always has a connection to fifth density and that is through the so-called “silver thread” that always exists as the third density soul’s doorway to fifth density. It can be opened at a moment’s notice whenever needed. When it is opened it becomes a conduit. Through that conduit the soul passes. And it is not subject to interference by anything. This is not a deliberate construction; it is merely the natural process. Once it is passing through the conduit produced by the opening of the silver thread, then, of course, it cannot be tampered with. Do you understand?

Q: (L) Yes, but why do so many souls, when they leave the body, not traverse this conduit, and why do they stay earthbound, and why do they attach to other bodies? Why does this condition exist?

A: That is a complicated question, however the best answer is choice is involved there for those souls who wish not to leave the plane of third density. The only possibility to do this is to be detached from the now expired physical body but still be within the third density plane, which, of course, is not natural, but nonetheless can occur. In situations such as this, though it has been incorrectly reported, the silver thread is still attached and still remains a thread rather than a conduit. The soul is still attached to the silver thread but detached from the host body, which has now expired. So the effect is very similar to being consciously aware of third density surroundings without a third density unit to accompany. Do you understand?

Q: (L) Yes. Okay…

A: Also, please be aware of the fact that once the soul leaves the confines of the physical body, the illusion of time passage is no longer apparent even when the soul remains on the third density plane. Therefore, it appears to that soul that no time whatsoever has passed. And, we mention this merely for you to contemplate all of the various meanings behind this.

Free Formal Imaging. A most interesting concept. I wonder how many people think they have guides or guardian angels and they are really just being manipulated by such messages? And, the above exchange makes it clear that the problem is even more difficult since the Cassiopaeans are suggesting that body chemicals can be manipulated by sound waves, and that these chemicals — including hormones one would guess — affect one’s thinking. As noted earlier, any woman who has ever suffered PMS knows how true that is!

But, excluding normal cyclical fluctuations, it seems that the same PMS-type state, and even others more precisely formulated, can be artificially stimulated in the individual by this sound wave technology. What about stimulation of pleasure chemicals? How easy would it be for them to implant an idea, send a voice message via an idea construct, and then simultaneously stimulate the pleasure centers of the brain so that the individual is washed through and through with warmth and love, thereby being convinced that the idea that is being contemplated is very positive and life affirming when it is, in fact, actually the opposite.

At the same time, we understand one of the means by which an individual can be blocked from retrieving memories by having a pain block installed, and later stimulated.

The point is: it becomes almost impossible to trust one’s emotions when considering this factor. So, again, we see the necessity for knowledge about the environment and thoughtful examination of our internal state at all times in order to avoid such traps.

Just how powerful this type of manipulation can be in human hands, is exemplified in a couple of brief remarks about the Branch Davidians at Waco:

October 5, 1994

Q: (L) Did the United States government deliberately murder the Branch Davidians at Waco?

A: Close. Led them to destroy themselves.

Q: (L) How?

A: Psychological warfare tactics.

Q: (L) Did the US government set their compound on fire?

A: No.

Q: (L) Who set the compound on fire?

A: Branch Davidians. ELF and subliminals, as well as other means drove them crazy.

The fact that the use of ELF and other sound frequencies is ubiquitous was mentioned by the Cassiopaeans one night to a researcher who had recently been through what she described as a “severe psychic attack”.

February 25, 1995

Q: (CD) The thing the other night… was I being bombarded by ELF frequencies?

A: All are.

Q: (L) All in the room?

A: All are.

Q: (CD) Am I in physical danger?

A: That is not the point. You can be harassed.

Q: (BP) Cannot unconditional love and faith overcome all of this?

A: More is needed. Knowledge protects.

Please note that another guest who was well and truly inured in the New Age teachings suggested “love and faith” as the solution to the problem. This is exactly the kind of teachings that are being promulgated to make seekers weak and vulnerable to manipulation. Just as Don Elkins could have very well survived the assaults on him if he had been able to pursue the questions about attack from negative forces, so might many seekers be able to avoid similar traps, and many other kinds of traps as well.

In addition to sound, it seems that there are other technologies to keep the human population deaf and blind. The next excerpt is interesting because it followed a suggestion for a series of questions made by the Cassiopaeans themselves in response to an unspoken question:

November 18, 1995

A: Strobe lights are used for 3rd density mind control.

Q: (L) Strobe lights located where? What brought that up?

A: We have picked up your thought waves, which are progress oriented, and are trying to assist you in your increased learning and progress frequency wave. You see, this increases the energy level!!

Q: (L) Okay. You mentioned the strobe lights. Are these strobe lights that are used to control minds, are these something that we would or might come in contact with on a daily basis?

A: Do you not already know? We didn’t say: some strobe lights, we said: strobe lights, i.e., all-inclusive!

Q: (T) Strobe lights come in many forms and types. TV is a strobe light. Computer screens are a strobe light. Light bulbs strobe, fluorescent strobe, streetlights strobe.

A: Police cars, ambulances, fire trucks… How long has this been true? Have you noticed any changes lately??!!??

Q: (F) Twenty years ago there were no strobe lights on any of those vehicles mentioned. They had the old flasher type lights. Now, more and more and more there are strobe lights appearing in all kinds of places. (L) And now, they even have them on school buses! (T) And the regular city buses have them too, now. (L) Okay, is the strobe of a strobe light set at a certain frequency in order to do certain things?

A: Hypnotic opener.

Q: (L) What is the purpose of the hypnotic opener being used in this way?

A: You don’t notice the craft. Opener. Is precursor to suggestion, which is auditory in nature?

Q: (T) What suggestion?

A: Put on your thinking caps. Networking is not making assumptions. Bold unilateral statement of “fact” is.

Q: (T) Oh. Phrase your statements in the form of a question! Cosmic Jeopardy! I’d like “Hypnotic Openers” for $200, Alex! (L) Okay, you said the “suggestion is auditory in nature”. If this is the case, where is the suggestion coming from in auditory format?

A: Where do you normally receive auditory suggestions from?

Q: (L) Radio, television… (T) Telephone… (L) Is that what we are talking about?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) If you encounter a strobe while driving, or you are sitting in front of your television, then the suggestions can be put into you better because of this hypnotically opened state? Is that it?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) What are these suggestions designed to do, to suggest? In a general sense, to not see the craft?

A: Yes.

Q: (T) Do we get these signals from the radio in the car even if it is turned off?

A: Depends upon whether or not there is another source.

Q: (T) Another source such as?

A: ELP, for example. Extremely Low Pulse.

Q: (T) ELF, Extremely Low Frequency, and ELP, Extremely Low Pulse — is this the same thing?

A: Sometimes.

Q: (T) This would be an external pulse or frequency?

A: Yes.

Q: (T) Would it be originating from the source of the strobe?

A: No. They act in unison.

Q: (L) And this process prevents us from seeing something, such as craft flying in our skies at any given time?

A: Or maybe see them as something else.

Q: (L) Now, we have to stop for a minute because I want to tell you something. In the past few months, I have really been watching the sky carefully every opportunity I get. On three or four separate occasions I have seen what I thought was an ordinary airplane, and I would watch it carefully and then scan to the left or right, and when I looked back at the place where this plane should be, based on observable speed and direction, there would be nothing there. I have stood there and searched and searched and found nothing. These things just vanished. I knew I had seen it, I knew I wasn’t crazy, I knew it couldn’t have gone away that completely — and having it happen several times has just really unsettled me. What are the implications of this, other than the fact that we could be completely overflown at all times for any number of purposes and we could be, as a mass of people, completely unaware of it?

A: Yes, monoatomic gold!

Q: (L) And what does the reference to monoatomic gold mean? We have wondered about obtaining and taking some of this monoatomic gold.

A: Are you serious? How about some small helpings of arsenic, anyone?

Q: (L) Okay, my feeling is that there is some negative energy behind that, even though David Hudson is trying to be a positive person and do positive things, and that… It may be that he is being manipulated.

A: This is often true!

Q: (L) I think that taking something like that to transform your consciousness without doing the work or having it occur naturally is a violation of the free will of the Higher Self. That’s what I think. (F) Well, did Jesus or other great masters take this gold powder?

A: No.

Q: (L) Did Adolph Hitler take this kind of powder, or something similar?

A: Yes.

Q: (F) That paints a rather bleak picture, doesn’t it? (L) Could this powder be utilized to transform a person to a very positive entity doing great good?

A: Or could it be utilized to transform an entire race of beings into hypnotic submission!!!!!!!!!!!

Q: (F) Wow! (L) Put it in the water. (F) Or even just advertise it as the “Manna from Heaven” and get the biggest corporations in the world to… I mean, you know that if this guy were not meant to spread this stuff all around, by now he’d be running into roadblocks, you wouldn’t be allowed to get tapes like that out there. That was one thing I was suspicious of, like why he hasn’t even been stopped, if it’s really as wonderful as he claims… I mean it just doesn’t fit. Anything that’s really, really good, and it’s going to go against the control system. […] Are they just going to sit back and say, “Oh, yeah, we’ll just let this gold powder get spread round everywhere, and everybody will take it and develop super psychic powers and wake up”, just like that? I don’t think so! The fact that it is being promulgated from the “other side” tells us that there is a plan here.

A: Total entrapment of the being, mind, body and soul. Strobes use minute gold filament.

Q: (L) How can that compare with taking monoatomic gold internally?

A: What composes minute filament, do you suppose? Hint, it ain’t from Fort Knox!

Q: (T) Monoatomic gold.

A: Bingo. You see, this has extraordinary properties.

Q: (T) I’m sure it does! The thing is, if it does what Hudson says it does, the power structure would have shut him down — he wouldn’t have gotten this far with it. So, if they are letting him do it, it’s because it doesn’t do what he says it does, it does the opposite. When you take the stuff for so many days, you complete the program; it restructures your genes. Isn’t that what happened to us before? Do we want to do it again? (L) And, wasn’t it said that light was used to cancel certain DNA factors? (J) Exactly! (L) Okay, how do we block this kind of control?

A: You don’t. Knowledge protects.

Regarding the ELF control factor, we had a personal experience at one point that could give some clues to others who are searching. In 1997, Ark had several research obligations in Europe and one of them was in Göttingen. When he arrived at the institute, he was assigned an office and would walk from the hotel to the office at the University every day. But there was a strange problem. As soon as he would get settled in to work, he became so sleepy that he could simply not stay awake. He tried everything from getting up and moving around to drinking coffee or tea, and nothing worked. He tried going to sleep earlier to make sure he was well rested, but he simply could not sleep in a way so as to get good rest. Even if he felt relatively rested in the hotel, the instant he would enter the office and begin working, the drugged sensation would wash over him and he would become almost incoherent. We were in constant contact by email and phone, and I was becoming very worried about him.

Well, he finally noticed that when he was down in the basement library of the University, he was not sleepy, so he took his notebook computer down there to work and spent as little time in the office as possible. I decided to ask a few questions about this situation:

May 31, 1997

Q: (L) Ark has been having a problem sleeping at night and staying awake in the office. The building is a number 9, but there is also the Max Planck Institute across the street. Is it the number 9, or the Max Planck Institute across the street?

A: Well, we vote for Max!

Q: (L) So, what are they doing over there in that building that is affecting him?

A: Better question: What are “they” doing on 4th density that is affecting him?

Q: (L) Since that is a better question, what are they doing on fourth density that is affecting Ark? Is he being abducted from this building?

A: No.

Q: (L) Are they STS or STO?

A: STS.

Q: (L) Are they zapping him with some kind of frequency modulation?

A: Close.

Q: (L) Why is it more effective in that building than in the basement or at his hotel?

A: Because of Max.

Q: (L) Okay, they are using whatever is going on in that building to zap Ark. Anything else they are doing there?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Could you tell me what?

A: No. It would not be in your best interests to know.

Q: (L) Is there anything else they are doing to Ark?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Can you tell me?

A: Body chemistry alteration.

Q: (L) In what sense is there body chemistry alteration going on?

A: Brain wave factors.

Q: (L) Is there something he can do for protection?

A: He soon will leave the area.

Q: (L) Well, during the time he is there, how much damage can they do?

A: Probably not much.

Q: (L) Anything else?

A: One shot of whiskey per day will help.

Q: (L) Well, that is a bizarre thing to say! A shot of whiskey?! That will help his brain chemistry?

A: Some.

Q: (L) What is this altering of his brain chemistry designed to do?

A: Befuddle.

Q: (L) Well, I think it is working. Any other suggestion besides staying in the hotel, or the basement, and drinking a shot of whiskey a day?

A: No need.

Q: (L) And you are not going to tell us what they are doing over there in the Max Planck Institute?

A: As Carlos Allende would say: “If you knew, you would die of shock.”

Well, many of the things going on here on the Big Blue Marble certainly aren’t friendly for sure! But, as the Cassiopaeans noted, Ark was soon to leave Göttingen for Dijon for a couple of weeks, after which he traveled to Florence. The time in Dijon was as bad, if not worse, than the time in Göttingen. At the point of the next transcript, he was already in Florence.

July 5, 1997

Q: (L) This past couple of weeks that Ark spent in Dijon were miserable. What was the fundamental reason for these conditions and this misery?

A: Near ELF transmitter. Also the water supply is loaded with fluoride.

Q: (L) He is gone from Dijon now. Whatever it was in Göttingen, you said he would be gone soon and not to worry. So… he is no longer near the ELF transmitter… he is no longer drinking the water…

A: Fluoride is toxic, and deposits in fatty tissues, and lymph system. Aside from the obvious possible negative consequences, it can make one more susceptible to electromagnetic wave frequencies that are designed to make one open to mind alteration!

Q: (L) Okay. You have my undivided attention. How does he get the fluoride out of his system?

A: Recommend daily ingestion of Goldenseal root, as well as vinegar and garlic in moderation, along with up to an hour per every two days of light aerobic exercise.

Q: (L) Well, this sounds serious. Anything else that will help?

A: This is a good start. Arkadiusz, or as we like to call him, Arkady, is the primary target of your trio, for now. Great potential dangers lurk…

Q: (L) So this really is like the grail Quest? He has to go through a magic forest, chop heads off dragons, keep his eyes open and not be led astray by deceptive images and tricks… the whole thing!

A: Where to get the influence for the inspiration behind that story? Imagine how much your cause would be damaged without him? Where would your ambition for the quest go? You must be extremely vigilant when it comes to him and his safety. He still does not completely fathom the depths of the situation. Until he is here, thus more protected, and it will not be easy to get him here, danger awaits the greeting of each new day. Vigilance! Vigilance! Vigilance!!!!!

Q: (L) That is completely depressing. Help me out here!

A: Now… Calm down! No need for depression. Would you rather be left with a lack of knowledge, and in an ever-increasing state of false security-oriented oblivion, only to be struck by lightning?!? Of course not!!! So remember… Knowledge protects, ignorance endangers!!

Q: (L) Well, you said that it was going to be difficult for him to get home. The travel arrangements have already been made. Are you saying difficult in a general sense, or is there going to be some major move made, some plan going on at other levels, or behind the scenes, to prevent him? [And there was, as it turned out, but that is another story, best saved for later!]

A: There always is that. Have you not seen the evidence already? Must be aware. Think of it as a war. Expect every possible move/or occurrence. Victory comes from being forewarned, and therefore, forearmed.

Q: (L) Is that, as Frank said, the key? To turn up the vigilance volume to maximum?

A: Always. Don’t be like the sentry who fell into a peaceful, pleasure filled, dreamy sleep while on watch! He did not even feel the blade as it pierced his heart!

Q: (L) Well, that is not friendly. Now I really am depressed! Tell me: is what we are doing so important that this kind of energy has to be concentrated on us?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Can we quit?

A: Look at it this way: make it your goal to succeed, and then you have not to fear. Arkadiusz must be made aware that dangers lurk everywhere, potentially. He has spent a lifetime building a strong sense of security, based upon his own natural self-assured state of being. But now is the “time” to learn that this is not enough.

Q: (L) Is there any specific danger in Florence that you can point out, or back in Wroclaw?

A: No specific dangers. Just remember: there are forces “out there” that wish to see your project, and you, fail. You two have both previously felt the sting of these forces acutely. He has not so much, until now.

Q: (L) Anything further on this?

A: We could go on and on. The point is: warn Arkadiusz! Knowledge protects…

Q: (L) Well, I certainly will. Could this WM who has just come into the picture be part of the attack forces?

A: Anyone and everyone could be. Remember, they work through persons; they are not normally the persons themselves.

The notion that the process of graduating from third density is exemplified in the stories of the Grail Quest brings up the point that many of the tests and trials of the Grail hero involved great deception. He was not just challenged by obviously dangerous or threatening things in his reality, though that did happen. The greatest dangers came from those ploys and traps that were designed to seduce him through kindness, sympathy, love and beauty. It was only after he had made the right choice that the true form of the illusion was revealed to him. He was not granted any proof beforehand, nor was he given any insight other than the fact that following the illusion was a distraction from the ultimate goal.

That brings us back to the idea that the so-called aliens, or hyperdimensional beings, work through humans, via mind programming, emotional manipulation, and other methods. How is one to tell if they are interacting with a disseminator of disinformation posing as a teacher or guru or great saint or channel or even personal guides or guardian angels?

One individual suggested that we should be able to separate the reliable sources from disinformation because the latter would be given out by people who had apparent ego issues, or that they were clearly out for money.

I would like to suggest just the opposite would be true in the most hard-core cases. Yes, we have a lot of folks out there who are stuck in their egos, whose egos are being manipulated to send them out to proclaim this or that teaching involving a hierarchy in which they, naturally, have a very high position. Those people who are in it for the money and the glory are easy enough to spot if you look close enough. Even Sai Baba, a South Indian guru who claimed to be the reincarnation of the Maharashtrian saint, Sai Baba of Shirdi, has fallen from grace because many people have become aware of the clever shell game of manipulations he has been playing all these years.

But it is the others — the perfectly programmed individuals — that will be discerned with only great difficulty. And, the problem we face is the following: they really believe in what they are saying or doing. They are dedicated and driven to preach, convert, suffer, and sacrifice for the sake of their message!

Consider the Unification Church and its adherents often known colloquially as Moonies as an example. Consider the sacrifice and suffering of these people, begging on street corners, witnessing in airports and parks, accosting strangers with their message. Think of the many recent inside stories about the ways and means of their conversions. Think of the fact that they have all more or less given up a normal life, they have given all they own to their church. They have suffered hunger, cold, sleep deprivation, and so on for the sake of this belief system. They are truly sincere and dedicated. They have no ego at all. Could that be another clue?

Are they programmed in the same way we have been talking about? Are techniques such as the Greenbaum method being used here? The fact is it isn’t even necessary. One good Master Programmer can do a lot with an ignorant person. The question is, what kind of people are susceptible to these Master Programmers? In 1931, Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World, in which he stated:

“The older dictators fell because they never could supply their subjects with enough bread, enough circuses, enough miracles and mysteries. Nor did they possess a really effective system of mind-manipulation.

“Under a scientific dictator, education will really work — with the result that most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution. There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.”

Aldous Huxley also made an early connection between the effects experienced by those partaking of psychedelic drugs and the experiences of Eastern Mysticism and this set the consciousness-raising bomb off with a bang. Along came Timothy Leary, and Richard Alpert aka Baba Ram Dass, with their LSD and other modes of mind marvels, leading the parade of those who were “turned on, tuned in”.

Abraham Maslow became a father figure to the new wave of those desiring to fill the gaping hole of their reality with peak experiences. Maslow cited psychedelic drugs as one of the means in which even ordinary people could have a little of what the Eastern Mystics worked many years to develop. Now, it could be had for a weekend seminar at Big Sur, or a study by mail course at only $29.95 per lesson. What a deal!

Peak Experiences — experience, experience, and experience — became the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow of the 1960s. No one needed to live in existential despair any longer. Everyone could become a spiritual voyager and achieve extended periods in realms of consciousness they had only heard about in veiled, mysterious allusions passed down through the ages. Encounter groups, radical therapies, old and new combinations of theories and practice came rolling off the conveyor belt of techno-spirituality. The intangibles of spirit had been harnessed. Anyone could evoke some desirable experience by manipulating awareness at the basic physical and psychological levels. Never mind that all of this bypassed the vital processes of reason and conscious decision making.

By its very nature, the whole techno-spiritual machine operated completely without critical thinking; it tapped the bottomless pit of feeling and emotion — primal being. Never mind that much of this emotion was negative, confusing, anxious and fearful. Let’s just get it all out here in the open and have a party with it!

Each of the many techniques developed during this time were completely capable of producing an emotional high of one sort or another. There were endless peak experiences, and dramatic personal breakthroughs. The mixtures of Zen, yoga, meditation, and drugs along with strict mechanical technology, were a veritable adventure in awareness. The only problem was: in the midst of all this peaking, mind-blowing, turning on and tuning in, ecstasy and encountering, many people encountered things that perhaps ought not have been awakened. Boundaries were breached into invisible and terrifying realms of consciousness. William Chittick, translator of the works of the great Sufi Shaykh, Ibn al-‘Arabi, wrote:

Nowadays most people interested in the spirituality of the East desire the ‘experience’, though they may call what they are after intimate communion with God. Those familiar with the standards and norms of spiritual experience set down by disciplined paths like Sufism are usually appalled at the way Westerners seize upon any apparition from the domain outside of normal consciousness as a manifestation of the ‘spiritual’. In fact, there are innumerable realms in the unseen world, some of them far more dangerous than the worst jungles of the visible world.

“So preserve yourselves, my brothers, from the calamities of this place, for distinguishing it is extremely difficult! Souls find it sweet, and then within it they are duped, since they become completely enamored of it.” (Futuhat III 38.23, in Chittick, 1989, 263)

By the end of the decade of the ’60s, the human potential movement had become a veritable potpourri of religion, science, mysticism, magick and the occult. The drug use got out of hand, the techniques began to show serious flaws with a number of tragedies resulting in crime or madness, and the whole idea of human beings becoming “psychic supermen” hit the skids.

The promise of the ’60s decayed into an aimless lethargy — old hippies living in communes, braiding their gray locks and lusting after the sweet young teeny boppers while they fired up another bong and reminisced about the good old days at Esalen.

But wait! Something else happened here. Remember, this is America, the home of the free … market, that is. Many people suggest that the subsequent proliferation of the New Age consciousness raising movement was the result of big business seeing a pile of money to be made in the development of slick, newly packaged psychoanalysis and psychodrama. There was, indeed, mass distribution and Madison Avenue marketing of things like Mind Dynamics, Arica, Silva Mind Control, Transcendental Meditation, and on and on. Individual entrepreneurs knew a good thing when they saw it. However, there is more to this than meets the eye. This is important to our subject, so bear with me.

What happened was that many of the mind-wounded ran straight back into the arms of their childhood faith; but many more became victims of the many up and coming cults that were happy to take them in and patch the holes in their psyches, or fix them up for a few weekends of witnessing on the street corner and some door-to-door proselytizing. The odd thing is that most of these new cults were simply variations of the old cults. Instead of Jesus coming to save us, the aliens were going to do it!

Many of the cults, and even the old religions, took advantage of the new marketing strategies and polished up their images, sent their people to advertising classes and then out into the world in massive fundraising and recruitment drives. The Hare Krishna group, among others, even hired their own ad men.

So, the race was on again. Only now, it was like buying Coca-Cola. The “pause that refreshes” right here in this very tape set, consciousness raising course, or cult practice! It had become a form of spiritual masturbation where everyone met their own needs in private. You could put on your strobe glasses, listen to your astral travel tape, channel your very own guides, and get high without ever leaving the farm. You could change your beliefs, create your own reality, and indulge your inner child by mail, by golly!

What nobody seems to be talking about, however, is the concomitant changes in our world that very well may be the direct result of this so-called shift in consciousness. Nobody wants to talk about the hard reality of what is really going on out there. One correspondent described it so well that I will reproduce his comments:

I think I am noticing a vast world of things going on that, just a few short years ago, would never have happened. Almost everywhere I look, when I see circumstances and reactions and goings-on, the thought explodes into my head, ‘What in the world is going on here?’ Let me list what I see:

The modern-day Roman circus spectaculars of Elians, O.J.s and Monicas.

The appeal of today’s non-music, music that appeals to the most base of human emotion and response.

The opiate of the mindless drone and flicker of constant television.

The dangled carrot of a manipulated and contrived economy.

The apathy toward the government and their meaningless platitudes.

The increase in violence and attacks from close and least expected sources, which appear to be designed by outside forces to provide an energy feeding frenzy as well as divert those seeking awareness and understanding from a path of discovery.

The dark side of Tesla genius.

The easy access of Internet porn and the proliferation of cyber-sex as an option to replace ‘real life’.

And to the above I would add:

One out of every 100 Americans living in a prison, a figure unprecedented in our history.

The numbers of people on prescription, mind altering drugs is even higher than the number of people in physical prisons.

We are now diagnosing and drugging our children for behavior that was once considered to be normal for a child.

Gang proliferation throughout all levels of society, where once such things existed only among the very poor and disadvantaged.

Children becoming violent at a young age more frequently than ever before.

Mass killings so common they aren’t even reported on the front page anymore

And, while I have your ear: what’s up with the way kids dress nowadays? Well, it’s not even just kids, it’s ubiquitous. It seems that human beings, under the influence of Madison Avenue and the motivation masters of greed and degradation, get up early in the morning to figure out how to dress themselves, arrange their hair, and decorate their bodies in as repulsive a way as possible.

I am continuously revolted by clerks in stores with multiple body piercings, tattoos that look more like dirt smudges or bruises than art, hair that looks like it was arranged by Attila the Hun, make-up that looks like it was applied by Vlad the Impaler. Young people wear clothing that make them look like rejects from the Oklahoma dust bowl days. Chains and chunks of metal clank from every part of their person as they display their ornaments to their peers, resembling a combination of ancient Mongol warriors and concentration camp survivors.

And it’s clearly not the proclaimed “personal expression”, because it is more of a uniform than anything else. The demand to have the same look, the same brand of clothing, the same body parts pierced, or to think of new and more bizarre ways to do it, is overwhelming every parent I know. I have had to draw the line in my own house, telling my kids that they won’t eat at my table if the way they look makes my stomach churn.

Who or what is inspiring these manifestations of purely barbaric, mechanistic behavior? Who is turning humanity into beings who accept what used to be the trappings of slavery as if it were the latest style? And what’s more, to convince them that it is expressive or attractive? What is going on when physical self-mutilation and self-defacement, mind numbing and body jarring music, and things that are just plain ugly are considered normal? And, not just normal, but attractive.

While the above might appear as a rant, look more closely and try to discern what this tendency says about our society. What is it telling us? Those who have bought into the New Age bonanza seem to have shut off their minds and the effect on their offspring is frightening. We have become part of a reality that is ripe for being taken over by the first “strong man” who comes along with signs and wonders. When we think back over all of this “awakening of America”, we find that the origins of the movement are traceable to the arts. So, let’s take another look at something the Cassiopaeans said:

September 21, 1996

Q: (T) Is there any significance to the ID4 [Independence Day] movie?

A: Sure.

Q: (L) What was the primary intention of the makers of this movie? The primary message that they attempted to convey?

A: Infuse thinking patterns with [planchette swirled a few times here] concept of aliens. Part of a larger project called “Project Awaken”.

Q: (L) And who is behind, or in charge of, this project?

A: Thor’s Pantheum. Sub-select trainees for transfer of enlightenment frequency graduation.

Q: (L) Well, is this group STS or STO?

A: Both.

Q: (T) They’re working together? Bipartisan?

A: No.

Q: (J) Are they aware of each other? Working on this?

A: Yes. There is more to all of this than you could dream. An army of Aryan psychic projectors.

Q: (L) And what do they project?

A: Themselves… Right in to one’s head.

Q: (L) And, when they project themselves right into someone’s head, what does that someone perceive?

A: Inspiration.

Q: (L) Inspiration to do something?

A: And…

Q: (L) To do something, and to understand or perceive something?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) So, how many are in this army?

A: 1.6 million.

Q: (L) When they’re doing this projecting into someone’s head, where are they projecting from?

A: Mostly subterranean.

Q: (L) Are they third or fourth density beings?

A: Both.

Q: (T) Let me back up to a question here. If they can do all this projecting on their own, what was the point of the movie?

A: No, you misunderstand… This is an intense activity, directed towards influencing the high level creative forces.

Q: (L) Was there something subliminal in the movie? That opened something?

A: Sure. Not for you, but for others.

Q: (L) What made us immune?

A: You already have the knowledge.

Q: (L) What are these high-level creative forces that need to be influenced, or desirable of being influenced?

A: Those in the creative arts.

Q: (L) So in other words this group is using their projecting ability to influence those in the creative arts to produce things that will therefore influence the people on the planet. Is that it?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Can we say that they are stimulating people in a positive way?

A: Maybe.

Q: (J) Can we say that they are stimulating people in a negative way?

A: Maybe.

Q: (L) So, there’s probably a little of both. And you say that we are immune to it because we already have knowledge. Now, when you say we have knowledge, do you mean just knowledge in particular about aliens and alien realities and alien potentials and so forth?

A: Yes.

Well, that certainly is interesting. But, indeed, we have both STS and STO in operation here. And when you consider the time travel element, well, the game becomes infinitely more interesting.

In terms of mind programming, this question about what is done via the media always arises. There are many conspiracy theorists who are certain we’re being viciously manipulated in this way. But, the simple fact is: it isn’t even necessary to go to such lengths!

November 16, 1994

Q: (L) We are aware that we are being manipulated by the media. We would like to know what types of methods do they use and what is their objective? What kind of technical means do they use to project mental manipulation by way of TV or movies?

A: Simple bombardment visual and verbal most of the time.

Q: (L) Do they use subliminal implantation of ideas in TV and movies?

A: Yes, but not needed most often.

Q: (L) The music that kids listen to, is there any effort to program them in this media?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Do they use subliminals there?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Do they use electronic signals?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Do they use electronic signals on television programming?

A: Have but not that often.

Q: (L) Is there any signal being sent over the test of the emergency broadcast signal?

A: No.

At this point, I am going to quote several longer passages from a book by Richard Dolan, UFOs and the National Security State. This material came out after The Wave series was first published, and not only confirms my working hypothesis at the time, it also adds important details to the understanding of the problems we face.

From the 1940s to the 1970s, military personnel from the United States and many other nations encountered unidentified flying objects, visually and on radar, sometimes at close range. These instances happened not scores of times, but hundreds of times, perhaps even thousands. Sometimes the encounter was nothing more than a solid radar return of an object moving at an incomprehensible speed, performing impossible maneuvers. Sometimes it included the violation of sensitive airspace. Often it involved the dispatch of one or more jets to intercept the object. At times, crew members claimed to see a metallic, disc-like object, sometimes with portholes, sometimes with lights, frequently engaged in what appeared to be intelligent, evasive maneuvers. In a very few cases, it involved the crash and military retrieval of a UFO. In a few others, it involved injury and even death to military personnel. In the large majority of instances recorded in UFOs and the National Security State, military personnel who encountered UFOs were adamant that they did not see a natural phenomenon.

This is clearly a serious development, and it was treated as such by those groups we may call the national security state. The CIA, NSA, and all branches of military intelligence received UFO reports and discussed the matter as something of serious concern. There is also evidence, provided by former Blue Book chief Edward Ruppelt, of an ‘Above Top Secret’ group with access to all UFO data, a group that straddled the worlds of government, military, and industry.

At the same time, the military created the fiction, for public consumption only, that the UFO problem was nothing to be concerned about — certainly not the result of little green men. Aided by a heavy-handed official media and culture, it tried to convince the public that the Air Force’s Project Blue Book was the appropriate tool for looking into this purely academic concern. Blue Book was fundamentally a public relations tool, not an investigative body. Throughout its existence, it was under orders to debunk…

Some intelligence agency, most likely CIA, appears to have surveilled civilian UFO groups… In 1952, the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO) was founded in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, by Coral Lorenzen. It soon became one of America’s most influential and respected UFO organizations. Months before the first appearance of the organization’s periodical, the APRO Bulletin, a man claiming an intelligence background became an active supporter and attempted to lead the organization into ‘metaphysical areas of research’. Coral Lorenzen said she ‘gently parried’ these attempts. She later discovered light embossing on a letter she received from him, and used a soft pencil to discern what looked like an intelligence report about her. During the summer of 1952, two suspicious men posing as painting contractors called on her and engaged her in conversation. The men did not seem interested in selling any services. After they left, they parked their car where they had a clear view of the back of her home. These two men also visited APRO’s treasurer and secretary the same day, but apparently not any other homes in the neighborhood.

It is worth mentioning that, by 1952, 74 percent of the CIA’s money (and 60 percent of personnel) went toward covert operations… Contrary to the 1947 National Security Act, which stipulated that the CIA’s activities be confined outside the United States, the agency had already infiltrated and financed many U.S. labor, business, church, university, student, and cultural groups, usually channeling the money through various foundations. In 1952, it began opening the mail through a new program known as HT Lingual, which targeted correspondence between U.S. citizens and communist nations. For twenty-one years, with FBI help, the program photographed two million envelopes and opened 215,000 letters. No one, not even the president was exempt. By 1952, also, the CIA was using unwitting subjects to test the effects of LSD…

In March 1965… FBI offices were asked to compile lists of reliable reporters who could be called on for COINTELPRO work. Hoover was meanwhile busy gathering data on antiwar groups as well as members of Congress. That summer, US Army intelligence agents began to infiltrate and spy on a wide range of political groups involving about one thousand investigators and three hundred officers collecting questionable political utterances…

The CIA also controlled an army of thirty-six thousand men… which cost perhaps $300 million annually. Although Congress never authorized this activity, there was little to fear, considering the agency’s classified budget and its many private sources of income.

The HT Lingual program remained aggressive. By the early 1970s, the New York City component examined over 2 million mail items per year, photographed over thirty thousand envelopes, and opened eight thousand to nine thousand letters. In 1971, CIA Director Richard Helms gave a rare public address, in which he insisted that the CIA did not surveil domestic targets. ‘The nation must to a degree take it on faith,’ he said, ‘that we who lead the CIA are honorable men, devoted to the nation’s service.’

Meanwhile, CIA mind-control guru Sid Gottlieb had developed a strong interest in electronic stimulation of the brain, which he persuaded Helms to support. The idea was to program a human being to attack and kill upon command, to be done through the CIA’s Operation Often.

The NSA was examining over 150,000 telegrams per month, as part of Operation Shamrock…

Hoover, increasingly paranoid about exposure of the enormity of FBI activities, severed all relations with the CIA in the spring of 1970, and soon thereafter with all other intelligence agencies…

One of Nixon’s most persistent goals was the reorganization of the intelligence community, an immense undertaking. The most famous result of his efforts was the Huston Plan, named after Tom Huston, his point man on the project. At the June 1970 meeting in the Oval Office, all the main players attended: Haldeman, Ehrlichmann, Huston, and intelligence chiefs Hoover (FBI), Helms (CIA), Adm. Noel Gaylor (NSA), and Lt. Gen. Donald Bennet (DIA). Nixon made it clear he wanted a major effort against domestic dissidents. The group was chaired by Hoover and named the Inter Agency Committee on Intelligence (ICI). Even the formidable presence of the now cautious Hoover, however, could not prevent its far-reaching recommendations: expanded mail openings, resumption of illegal entries and ‘black bag’ jobs, electronic surveillance of Americans and foreigners within the U.S., an increase in the number of ‘campus sources’, and expansion of the army’s counterintelligence mission.

Nixon endorsed the plan in mid-July but would not sign it, nor would Haldeman and Ehrlichmann. Who, then, at the White House, put his name to this dramatic authorization? Why, Nixon’s young staffer, Tom Huston. Hoover easily torpedoed the plan on July 23, when he announced that he would certainly go along, just as soon as he received written authorization from the president for all these break-ins and wiretaps. Thus, the plan to ‘institutionalize burglary as presidential policy’ failed. In practice, it made little difference, as these agencies were already engaging in many of the practices for which they sought approval. They did not cease simply because official sanction was not forthcoming. In some cases, they even expanded their activities.

The first cracks in the facade appeared in 1971. With intelligence community break-ins widespread, Hoover ended the COINTELPRO program in April, not due to any recognition of impropriety but to fear of exposure. The bureau continued to be aggressive against its COINTELPRO targets, but was less systematic. Hoover’s fears proved well justified, for in May 1971, burglars broke into the FBI Field Office at Media, Pennsylvania, escaping with about a thousand documents and exposing the FBI’s massive surveillance of blacks, students, radicals, and other mischievous groups. The word ‘COINTELPRO’ escaped into society.

Then, on June 13, 1971, the New York Times began publishing a series of highly sensitive documents known as the Pentagon Papers. These were a classified history of the Vietnam War, leaked by Daniel Ellsberg, whom the White House immediately sought to smear and discredit. In September, a group of Cuban-Americans connected with the CIA, along with G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt, broke into the office of Ellsberg’s psychiatrist. These people were Richard Nixon’s personal covert action squad, nicknamed the ‘plumbers group’. In April 1972, it was almost certainly Nixon people who broke into the home of CBS White House correspondent Dan Rather.

Also in April 1972, the residence of J. Edgar Hoover was broken into twice. According to Hoover biographer Anthony Summers, the second break in allowed for the placement of a poison (thiophosphate) into Hoover’s personal toilet articles. The chemical is a compound used in insecticides, highly toxic if taken orally, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. It causes fatal heart seizure and is detectable only if an autopsy is performed within hours of death. J. Edgar Hoover died between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. on May 2, 1972. He received no autopsy, and the cause was ascribed to cardiac arrest, although Hoover’s doctor claimed he had been in good health. That morning, about twenty government agents methodically ransacked Hoover’s residence, but Hoover’s secretary destroyed countless files before anyone reached them. The official establishment lionized and glorified Hoover, and twenty-five thousand people flocked to the Capitol to pay homage to him. Nixon called him ‘a great force for good in our national life.’ Privately, Nixon feared Hoover even in death. A year later, he spoke of the old Director as though he were still alive: ‘He’s got files on everybody, goddamn it!’

Shortly after Hoover’s death, Nixon’s plumbers group burglarized the Chilean embassy in Washington. Then, on June 17, 1972, they were caught while breaking into the Democratic National Committee in Washington’s Watergate Office Building. Many believe Watergate was just the tip of the iceberg, since there had been at least a hundred similar types of break-ins, all apparently politically motivated, all unsolved, an unknown number of which were connected to Nixon. … It took some time before the FBI realized the break-in was not a CIA operation…

Nixon’s several failed attempts to reorganize the intelligence community showed that he was no better than his predecessors at controlling this sprawling octopus. Dissatisfied with and mistrustful of Helms, Nixon fired him following his reelection to the presidency in November 1972. Helms now began two months of vigorous cleanup at the CIA, closing down such vulnerable programs as Operation Often. During his last days as CDI in January 1973, Helms ordered Gottlieb, also on his way out, to destroy all files relating to MK-Ultra, MK-Search, and related endeavors in mind control. Among other things, Helms was worried that the lawsuits of Ewen Cameron’s former patients could blaze a trail straight to Langley. Inexplicably, Gottlieb failed to destroy about 130 incriminating boxes in the archives. Had he destroyed these, MK-Ultra might have remained unknown to this day. Meanwhile, the CIA was also working to prevent the publication of an expose by former agent Victor Marchetti. HT Lingual and the NSA’s Minaret programs also ended in 1973, the latter in order to prevent exposure during the Weathermen Trial…

James Schlesinger, a CIA outsider, replaced Helms, then named William Colby as head of clandestine services. At Colby’s urging, Schlesinger soon ordered CIA employees to report all suspected violations of the law, or of the CIA’s charter, to the CIA’s Inspector General. The result was a 693 page report called ‘Potential Flap Activities’, known more commonly as The Family Jewels. It discussed Operation Chaos, bits of MK-Ultra (although nothing significant), illegal domestic wiretaps and bugging, and so on. As amazing as these revelations were, there is little doubt that much, much more never surfaced. Schlesinger fired about one thousand CIA officers, then left the agency in July 1973 to take over at the Pentagon…

Classified information spilled out throughout 1973. People learned that the FBI actually wiretapped reporters and White House officials… The National Security apparatus suddenly looked vulnerable… and the president most of all… [Shortly thereafter, Nixon fell from power.]

In 1969, and into the early 1970s, the American National Security state was at its most expansive. This belied a losing effort in Southeast Asia. But while the Vietnam front was being lost and domestic dissent remained widespread, the UFO front appeared to be won. Flying saucers were relegated to a remote corner of cold war history as a curiosity in cultural paranoia and mass hysteria.

The UFO phenomenon, however, did not go away after the Condon Report debunked it. Odd, unexplained, and even fantastic events continued to be reported by sober, reliable people. Although the intense media fixation of 1940s or 1960s was no longer the rule in the 1970s, evidence for the reality of UFOs as something extraordinary, and even alien, did not escape the public.

Nor, it appears, the classified world. JANAP-146 and CIRVIS remained in effect, for example, indicating that UFO reports were still being routed through those channels. Moreover, journalist Howard Blum noted that since 1972, the NSA had been ‘secretly monitoring and often assessing worldwide allegations of UFO activity.’ It was mandatory, Blum wrote, to ‘Flash-report’ Fort Meade on all intercepted flying objects; ‘and these installations are required to track and Flash-report on any signals or electronic intelligence that might have an extraterrestrial origin.’ In February 1974, the French Defense Minister, Robert Galley, confirmed in a radio interview that his department was very interested in UFO reports and ‘that it had been interested since the great wave of 1954…’ His department’s records contained ‘some baffling radar/visual incidents.’ The UFO phenomenon was global, Galley said, and he expressed his conviction that ‘we must regard these phenomena with an attitude of completely open mind… It is undeniable that there are facts that are unexplained or badly explained.’

The great advantage to UFO secrecy henceforth was the official deniability that the military now possessed. Previously, those who disbelieved Air Force denials about UFOs always replied with the unanswerable question: then why investigate UFO reports through Project Blue Book? Now, however, the Air Force no longer officially investigated UFOs. With Blue Book gone, the last link to official sanction was removed from the UFO problem, and it was taken in toto to where the national security elite had always wanted it to be: deep within the classified world. (Dolan, 2002; emphasis added)

As I quoted in High Strangeness, Dolan also mentions Dr. Jose Delgado’s experiments in ESB (Electrical Stimulation of the Brain), which could not only evoke fear and pleasure, but hallucinations.

In 1968, George Estabrooks, another spook scientist, spoke indiscreetly to a reporter for the Providence Evening Bulletin. “The key to creating an effective spy or assassin, rests in creating a multiple personality with the aid of hypnosis,” a procedure which he described as “child’s play.” By early 1969, teams within the CIA were running a number of bizarre experiments in mind control under the name Operation Often. In addition to the normal assortment of chemists, biologists, and conventional scientists, the operation employed psychics and experts in demonology.

The compiled evidence — which includes government documents — suggests that a group of specialists working in the shadows of numerous national security organizations, set up and executed the largest cover-up in the history of government; and that the Human Potential movement and the subsequent New Age movements, were key elements of this cover-up. In other words, they not only have used the colorful community of alternative ideas as an unwitting tool of disinformation, it is highly probable that most of it was literally created by them as COINTELPRO. Though the name stands for Counterintelligence Program, the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate “radical” political opposition inside the U.S. What a lot of people do not realize is that this was a high level psychological operation specifically set up to vector ideological trends — beliefs, memes, etc.

[T]he cover up of UFO information is nothing unique. A state capable of conducting terminal mind-control experiments, biological spraying of American cities, illegal mail and cable interceptions, nationwide domestic surveillance by its military, human plutonium and syphilis injections, sundry coups and assassinations, ongoing media manipulations and flat-out public lying on a continual basis, would surely be capable of lying about UFOs, too. Indeed, it was the very institutions involved in such unsavory and subterranean activities that were most interested in maintaining UFO secrecy.

What could they have been so concerned about? As everyone likes to ask, why the secrecy? Surely, if the military truly believed what it said for years about UFOs — that they are usually misidentifications of natural phenomena — it would hardly be interested in the problems. But that is not the case…

[I]t is within the national security apparatus, and not among civilians, where most of the pieces to this puzzle exist. UFOs have national security implications, if for no other reason than that they have involved the military personnel of many nations. The subject is therefore subject to secrecy protocols, a situation that has existed for over fifty years, and is unlikely to end any time soon. … The military dimension to the UFO problem remains locked away within the classified world.

Some believe this is as it ought to be. Can the public really handle the truth about aliens? If the presence of others constitutes a threat to humanity, for example, what could the average person even do about it? There are those who believe that secrecy about UFOs is in the public’s best interest. Whatever the value of this sentiment — which I do not share — the ‘public interest’ has never been the main concern of those making the decisions. Ultimately, a national security apparatus exists not to protect the public but itself. The attachment of Americans to the fiction of a representative government, or — God forbid — a democracy, has clouded their ability to see their society for what it is: an oligarchy that uses the forms of democracy to appease and distract the public. [It is] folly to imagine that an oligarchy is not concerned with maintaining its position, to the exclusion of all else.

If we accept the reality of an alien presence, as the UFO evidence suggests, we must be willing to consider that presence as a threat. The record of military encounters with UFOs suggests that this is the case. Since the public is completely unprepared to meet this threat, one can only hope that those groups which have been dealing with it will act in the public interest. During the period of review [covered by Dolan’s book], those groups did not always work in the public interest when it came to other matters. There is little reason to believe it was, or is, any different regarding an alien presence.

Since the 1970s, the subject of UFOs has become more complex. Encounters are as widespread as ever, and even more plentiful than in the early years. At the same time, UFOs have received a thoroughly schizophrenic cultural treatment. Within popular culture, UFOs and aliens possess a cachet they never had during the cold war. Yet, the bastions of ‘official culture’ — academia, mainstream media, government, and the elements of national security — continue to ignore the subject or else treat it as a joke. One can plainly see that neither ABC Nightly News nor the American Historical Review deems the subject worthy of analysis…

Throughout most of the [last] century’s last three decades, very little effort was expended by the larger organizations either to end government UFO secrecy or, it appears, to reach the public with a coherent message. Instead, they have spent their efforts squirreling away huge amounts of data for… who knows what end?

In addition to these, there now exist organizations that serve in a kind of professional debunking capacity. The military and intelligence community continue to show myriad connections with UFO organizations, and several instances of UFO disinformation planted by intelligence personnel are known. The result has been three decades of fragmentation and perennial wheel-spinning…

UFOs have continued to intersect with the militaries of the world. Unauthorized airspace violations by unknown vehicles continue to occur; attempted interceptions continue to take place; secrecy orders are as severe as ever. For all of our sophisticated, secret, technology, these objects do not appear to be under our control. Through the cultural static, that signal is clear. (Dolan, 2002)

But all the while, the UFOs kept coming, and people kept seeing them, and some have seen through the easy answers provided by the New Age and are still asking questions.

There are, of course, many who are skeptical regarding the idea of alien manipulation, the control system, and even the mind programming experiments of the various human agencies, some of which have been exposed in government documents. That is understandable, when considering the factors discussed in High Strangeness. However, I think that a modification of Pascal’s Wager can most appropriately be applied to this situation: better to accept the possibility in case it is true, than to disregard it and be wrong. Certainly, if it is not true, considering it as a possibility and factoring it into analyses of reality won’t hurt. By the same token, if it is true, and that possibility is disregarded, the consequences could be fatal.

Even with the evidence that points in the direction of something going on behind the scenes, and this evidence indicating that what is known is only the tip of the iceberg, there are still die-hard skeptics out there doing things that could be not only dangerous to one’s health, but actually part of the programming experimentation itself.

December 3, 1994

Q: (L) I received an article from P about experiments by a fellow named Persinger who has been trying to duplicate the “abduction” experience by subjecting people to EM fields in a sensory deprivation chamber. I would like comments on that, and second…

A: Nonsense, some have closed mind inspired by fear.

Q: (L) My concern is that if he is doing this to people, and we have talked about electromagnetic energy blowing holes in the dimensional boundaries, my concern is that this experimentation could be detrimental to the persons being experimented on; is this a possibility?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) What could be the results of subjecting someone to these electromagnetic fields?

A: Cessation of body.

Q: (L) In other words, it could kill them?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Could it also open doors between dimensions and allow other things to enter in?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Could they be subjected to spirit or demonic possession by this method?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Could they also be being subjected to further programming by aliens through this method?

A: Yes.

Q: (L) Anything else you wish to say on this?

A: Always keep open mind.

Referring back to our little historical discussion above, can we possibly think that all of the human potential movement activity was deliberately designed to prepare the meat for roasting, so to speak?

Just exactly how this is done in a more or less ordinary way, by which I exclude any idea of aliens or Secret Government projects being involved, follows the same general line as religious programming that takes place in churches and evangelists’ tents across the country. An interesting series of remarks were made about it by Marjoe Gortner, former Evangelist, in an interview with Flo Conway and Jim Siegelman in their book Snapping (1978):

“As the preacher, I’m working with the crowd, watching the crowd, trying to bring them to that high point at a certain time in the evening. I let everything build up to that moment when they’re all in ecstasy. The crowd builds up and you have to watch that you don’t stop it. You start off saying you’ve heard that tonight’s going to be a great night; then you begin the whole pitch and keep it rolling.”

For Marjoe, who had seen it a million times, the divine moment of religious ecstasy had no mystical quality at all. It was a simple matter of group frenzy that had its counterpart in every crowd.

“It’s the same as a rock-and-roll concert. You have an opening number with a strong entrance; then you go through a lot of the old standards, building up to your hit song at the end.”

The hit song, however, was spiritual rebirth, the product of a time-tested recipe for evangelical religion to which the preacher and every member of the audience contribute some small but active ingredient. Afterwards, according to Marjoe, the only fitting encore to the overwhelming moment of being saved is a personal demonstration of the power of that newfound faith. This is the motivating factor that prompts speaking in tongues, also known as the “receiving of the Holy Ghost”. As Marjoe explained it, this well-known evangelical tradition required even greater participation on the part of the tongues recipient and the entire audience.

“After you’ve been saved,” Marjoe continued, “the next step is what they call ‘the infilling of the Holy Spirit.’ They say to the new convert, ‘Well, now you’re saved, but you’ve got to get the Holy Ghost.’ So you come back to get the tongues experience. Some people will get it the same night; others will go for weeks or years before they can speak in tongues. You hear it, you hear everyone at night talking in it in the church, and they’re all saying, ‘We love you and we hope you’re going to get it by tonight.’ Then one night you go down there and they all try to get you to get it, and you go into very much of a trance — not quite a frenzy, but it is an incredible experience.

“During that moment the person forgets all about his problems. He is surrounded by people whom he trusts and they’re all saying, ‘We love you. It’s okay. You’re accepted in Christ. We’re with you, let it go, relax.’ And sooner or later, he starts to speak it out and go dut-dut-dut. Then everyone goes, ‘That’s it! You’ve got it!’ and the button is pushed and he will in fact start to speak in tongues and just take off: dhandayelomosatayleesaso… and on and on.”

Marjoe paused. We were dumbfounded by his demonstration, although he hadn’t gone into the jerking, trance-like ecstasy that is commonly associated with the tongues moment. … Yet even in this restrained demonstration, he seemed almost uncannily to be triggering some innate releasing or babbling mechanism. We asked him how he brought it about.

“You’ll never get it with that attitude,” he joked. Then he went on to explain the true nature of the experience.

“Tongues is something you learn,” he emphasized. “It is a releasing that you teach yourself. You are told by your peers, the church and the Bible — if you accept it literally — that the Holy Ghost spake in another tongue; and you become convinced that it is the ultimate expression of the spirit flowing through you. The first time maybe you’ll just go dut-dut-dut-dut and that’s about all that will get out. Then you’ll hear other people and the next night you may go dut-dut-dut-UM-dut-DEET-dut-dut and it gets a little better. The next thing you know, it’s elahandosatelayeekcondelemosandreyaseya… and it’s a new language you’ve got down.”

Except that, according to Marjoe, it’s not a real language at all. Contrary to most religious understanding, speaking in tongues is by no means passive spiritual possession. It must be actively acquired and practiced. Although the “gift” of tongues is a product of human and not supernatural origin, Marjoe displayed tremendous respect for the experience as an expression of spirituality and fellowship.

“I really don’t put it down,” he said. “I never have. It’s just that I analyze it and look at it from a very rational point of view. I don’t see it as coming from God and say that at a certain point the Holy Spirit zaps you with a super whammy on the head and you’ve ‘gone for tongues’ and there it is. Tongues is a process that people build up to. Then, as you start to do something, just as when you practice the scales on the piano, you get better at it.”

During his years on the Bible belt circuit, Marjoe came to see the evangelical experience as a form of popular entertainment, a kind of participatory divine theater that provided its audiences with profound emotional rewards.

“The people out there don’t see it as entertainment,” he confessed, “although that is in fact the way it is. Those people don’t go to movies, they don’t go to bars and drink, they don’t go to rock-and-roll concerts — but everyone has to have an emotional release. So they go to revivals and they dance around and talk in tongues. It’s socially approved and that is their escape.

“It was my duty to give them the best show possible,” he said. “Say you’ve got a timid little preacher in North Carolina or somewhere. He’ll bring in visiting evangelists to keep his church going. We’d come in and hit the crowd up and we were superstars. It’s the charisma of the evangelist that the audience believes in and comes to see.

“When I was traveling, I’d see someone who wanted to get saved in one of my meetings, and he was so open and bubbly in his desire to get the Holy Ghost. It was wonderful and very fresh. But four years later I’d return and that person might be a hard-nosed intolerant Christian because he was better than anyone who drinks and better than the world because he had Christ. That’s when the danger comes in. People want an experience. They want to feel good and their lives can be helped by it. But then as you start moving into the operation of the thing, you get into controlling people and power and money.

“Moon’s [Unification Church] is doing the same thing I do, only he’s taken it one step further. He’s suggesting to people that he is the Messiah. In my religion, the old-time religion, it’s total blasphemy to suggest that. Moon has gone too far, but that’s a very heavy number on people, because everyone wants to meet a Messiah.”

Marjoe was quick to point out that Moon’s preaching powers, like his own, were by no means divine or even innate. Marjoe acknowledged that his power over an audience derived primarily from the skills he perfected as a child, techniques of rhetoric and public speaking that have passed down from the Greeks.

“It’s the same whether you’re a preacher, a lawyer or a salesman,” he told us. “You start off with a person’s thought processes and then gradually sway him around to another way of thinking in a very short time.”

Many of the techniques he commanded were simple and age-old, but so effective that they proved equally powerful even when an audience had been explicitly forewarned of their use. Toward the end of our conversation, Marjoe told us a story that revealed the finesse of his skills. In contrast to the massive physical experiences, intense group rituals and intimate personal crises that [are popular in the New Age crowd], Marjoe demonstrated how words alone, artfully manipulated, may be used to influence groups and individuals, even to the point of evoking the overwhelming emotional response of being “saved”.

“I lecture in about twenty colleges a year,” he began, “and I do a faith-healing demonstration — but I always make them ask for it. I tell them that I don’t believe in it, that I use a lot of tricks; and the title of the lecture is Rhetoric and Charisma, so I’ve already told them how large masses are manipulated by a charismatic figure. I’ve given them the whole rap explaining how it’s done, but they still want to see it. So I throw it all right back at them. I say, ‘No, you don’t really want to see it.’ And they say, ‘Oh, yes. We do. We do!’ And I say, ‘But you don’t believe in it anyway, so I can’t do it.’ And they say, ‘We believe. We believe!’ So after about twenty minutes of this I ask for a volunteer, and I have a girl come up and I say, ‘So you want to feel better?’ You’re just up here for a good time and you want to impress all these people and you want to make an ass out of me and an ass out of this whole thing, so why don’t you go back and sit down?’ I really get hard on her, and she says, ‘No, no, I believe!’ And I keep going back and forth until she’s almost in tears. And then, even though this is in a college crowd and I’m only doing it as a joke, I just say my same old line, In the name of Jesus!

And touch her on the head, and WHAM! They fall down flat every time!” (Conway and Siegelman, 1978; emphasis added)

So the programming begins. During the early contacts, a potential convert can be manipulated with absolute precision by the rhetorical ploys described by Marjoe. Conversations using similar Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques also build rapport, as does the use of confrontation and direct emotional assault.

Once the individual has been drawn into the teaching, they are bombarded with ideas and doctrines that they cannot fit together while at the same time being led through ceremonies or rituals that induce intense emotional highs and peak experiences.

They are then subjected to more personal encounters in which these experiences are given the prescribed interpretation that is being inculcated. During this period, they are usually involved in intensive repetitive things, which can be as simple as the order of worship in an ordinary church. There can be orders to “stand up, sit down, kneel, pray, sing, stand up, sit down, sing, pray” and so on. More intense formats include chanting and meditation that can induce physical and psychic highs. The end result is, of course, that all of this stops the mind. And when that happens, the individual is completely open to suggestion and command.

The convert is instructed at this time to “refrain from doubt”, and “do not question the wisdom of the teaching”. The oldest version of this mind program is, of course, what we consider to be the standard religious teachings. But we can certainly see from all of the above that they are as much mind control as any New Age teaching or so-called cult. As a matter of fact, the key to being a Christian is “the surrender of the intellect, the emotions, and the will”. To whom? Well, it’s said that it is to the “One, True God”. But would the “One, True God” really forbid doubt and questioning if there was no doubt or question that he was the “One, True God”?

In the end, however, the result of all of these programs is the same: under the cumulative pressures of whatever specific mode of programming is employed, the individual’s will gives way and they slide into a state of mind in which they literally are no longer capable of thinking for themselves.

This type of comprehensive assault strikes at the very heart of consciousness by undermining the processes of thinking and reflection that are crucial to individual awareness and free will.

Yet, the converts and adherents of religions and cults or many New Age teachings have a different name for what is happening to them: happiness. They have found peace. In the labor for the cult, they are in a daily state of spiritual high, an emotional peak experience that never ends! And, if it does falter for just a moment or two, the leaders and associates work quickly to bolster the high — to get them back down to the church for another infusion. And they go because they can then return to the state of bliss that is their reward for unquestioning devotion.

Successful self-help therapy, religious, or New Age philosophy graduates often achieve a sustained state of euphoria. Their problems are solved because — well, because they have no problems. They have stopped worrying about the things that were bothering them. They no longer strive to change and grow and learn and do and accomplish. They are content in their condition of a shutoff mind, their state of not thinking. Conway and Siegelman ask:

What kind of cultural environment breeds this widespread need to shut off the mind? It could be argued that the need is universal, that everyone — from Athenians to Sufis to voodoo tribesmen to modern Americans — must have some periodic release from the ordeal of being human. In that sense, the rituals and techniques which throughout history have been used to create peak experiences and moments of enlightenment may be looked on as vital sources of rest and relaxation for the mind, momentary breathing spells that hold great powers of insight, healing and renewal.

But what value can there be in engineering these experiences to shut down the workings of the mind altogether, to persistently stunt the processes of thought and leave people numb to their own feelings and the world around them? Throughout history, this systematic stilling of human awareness has proved an efficient method of controlling members of tribes, societies and whole nations in which little value is placed upon individuality. The state of mind it produces has a tradition that dates back to the dawn of civilization.

In the remote bush country of Australia, aboriginal tribes still engage in rituals perfected more than 16,000 years ago to induce a state of mind in their adolescents that is surprisingly similar to the plight of many of society’s brightest youth today and people of all ages.

In recent years, aboriginal Dream Time has been hailed as a state of profound sophistication in human awareness. Anthropologists point to the aborigine’s physical endurance, spiritual satisfaction and telepathic powers as marks of advanced evolution in a tribe that may represent humankind’s longest unbroken line of cultural development. However, they make the error of implying that this efficient and admittedly remarkable form of social control in a primitive, unchanging environment holds some promise for the future of our vastly more complex and fast-changing technological society. (Conway and Siegelman, 1978; emphasis added)

We need to make careful note that this mode of consciousness exists for the very purpose of keeping the aborigine primitive and unchanging. It’s no surprise that they still live as they did many thousands of years ago. That should give us pause.

In all the world, there is nothing quite so impenetrable as a human mind snapped shut with bliss. No call to reason, no emotional appeal can get through its armor of self-proclaimed joy. (Conway and Siegelman, 1978)

It doesn’t matter who it is, whether it is a graduate of some group therapy, a born-again Christian, a meditator, or the follower of this week’s channel o’choice. If you ask a question, the individual will spin around and around in circles of nonsensical beliefs and dogma. If you interrupt and repeat your question, they simply start right where they left off, or go back to the beginning of the loop and start over again.

Such people are not just simply incapable of carrying on a conversation. They are completely programmed. And they don’t have to be hauled in by aliens or Dr. Greenbaum to get that way.

Even though they were not talking about the kinds of programming we have been discussing, some of the work of Flo Conway and Jim Siegelman in their book Snapping is applicable to the present problem. They ask:

How do you reach such people? Can they be made to think and feel again? Is there any way to reunite them with their former personalities and the world around them? (Conway and Siegelman, 1978)

The answer that seems to be obvious to Siegelman and Conway is interesting because it falls into the same trap as the cults they’re talking about. It effectively makes a cult out of thinking in a specific way — the correct way — as defined by another arbitrary “expert” or authority, in this case Ted Patrick.

A man named Ted Patrick developed the first remedy. A controversial figure dubbed by the cult world [as] Black Lightning, Patrick was the first to point out publicly what the cults were doing to America’s youth. He investigated the ploys by which many converts were ensnared and delved into the methods many cults used to manipulate the mind.
… In unsuccessful attempts to free cult members from their invisible prisons, Patrick was repeatedly thrown into real ones. … In July 1976, … Patrick was sentenced to serve a year in prison for a cult kidnapping he did not in fact perform. … Early in 1977, we first visited Ted Patrick in the Theo Lacy Facility of the Orange County Jail to learn about deprogramming from the man who coined the term.

“The cults completely destroy the mind,” he said without qualification. “They destroy your ability to question things, and in destroying your ability to think, they also destroy your ability to feel. … They have the ability to come up to you and talk about anything they feel you’re interested in. Their technique is to get your attention, then your trust. The minute they get your trust, just like that they can put you in the cult.”

It was the classic sales pitch, carried off so smoothly that it amounted to what Patrick called “on-the-spot hypnosis”.

It was in 1971 that Patrick infiltrated the Children of God… In his brief encounter with the Children of God, though he was alert to the cult’s tactics, Patrick found that he was not immune to their effects.

“You can feel it coming on,” he explained… “Thinking, to a cult member is like being stabbed in the heart with a dagger. … It’s very painful because they’ve been told that the mind is Satan and thinking is the machinery of the Devil. … When you deprogram people, you force them to think. The only thing I do is shoot them challenging questions. I hit them with things that they haven’t been programmed to respond to. I know what the cults do and how they do it, so I shoot them the right questions; and they get frustrated when they can’t answer. They think they have the answer; they’ve been given answers to everything. But I keep them off balance and this forces them to begin questioning, to open their minds. When the mind gets to a certain point, they can see through all the lies that they’ve been programmed to believe. They realize that they’ve been duped and they come out of it. Their minds start working again.”

That, according to Patrick, was all there was to deprogramming. Yet since Patrick began deprogramming cult members, both the man and his procedure had taken on monstrous proportions in the public eye. … Cult members had been warned that Black Lightning was an agent of Satan who would subject them to unimaginable tortures to get them to renounce their beliefs. … No ex-cult member, parent or other reliable witness we talked to ever substantiated any of those charges. In truth, Patrick told us, and others later confirmed, many of the distortions that had been disseminated about the deprogramming were part of a coordinated campaign by several cults to discredit his methods. In the end, he said, the propaganda only worked to his advantage.

“The cults tell them that I rape the women and beat them. They say I lock them in closets and stuff bones down their throats.” Patrick laughed. “What they don’t know is that they’re making my job easier. They come in here frightened to death of me, and then, because of all the stuff they’ve been told, I can just sit there and look at them and I’ll deprogram them just like that. They’ll be thinking, ‘What the hell is he going to do now?’ They’re waiting for me to slap them or beat them and already their minds are working.”

In the beginning, Patrick admitted, he developed his method by trial and error, attempting to reason with cult members and learning each cult’s rituals and beliefs until he cracked the code. Refining his procedure with each case, he came to understand exactly what was needed to pierce the cult’s mental shield. Like a diamond cutter he probed with his questions the rough surface of speech and behavior until he found the key point of contention at the center of each cult member’s encapsulated beliefs. Once he found that point, Patrick hit it head on, until the entire programmed state of mind gave way, revealing the cult member’s original identity and true personality that had become trapped inside.

“The first time I lay eyes on a person,” he said, “I can tell if his mind is working or not. Then, as I begin to question him, I can determine exactly how he has been programmed. From then on, it’s all a matter of language. It’s talking and knowing what to talk about. I start challenging every statement the person makes. I start moving his mind, slowly, pushing it with questions, and I watch every move that mind makes. I know everything it is going to do, and when I hit on that one certain point that strikes home, I push it. I stay with that question — whether it’s about God, the Devil or that person’s having rejected his parents. I keep pushing and pushing. I don’t let him get around it with the lies he’s been told. Then there’ll be a minute, a second, when the mind snaps, when the person realizes he’s been lied to by the cult and he just snaps out of it. It’s like turning on the light in a dark room. They’re in an almost unconscious state of mind, and then I switch the mind from unconsciousness to consciousness, and it snaps, just like that.” (Conway and Siegelman, 1978; emphasis added)

The question is, why is what Patrick is doing any different from what the cults he claims to consider so dangerous are doing?

It was Patrick’s term for what happens in deprogramming. And in almost every case, according to Patrick, it came about just that suddenly. When deprogramming has been accomplished, the cult member’s appearance undergoes a sharp, drastic change. He comes out of his trance-like state and his ability to think for himself is restored. “It’s like seeing a person change from a werewolf into a man. It’s a beautiful thing.” (Conway and Siegelman, 1978)

That is certainly a loaded statement. Patrick assumes, a priori, that the so-called cult member is doing something that harms others or deprives them of their rights or freedoms, and yet he forcefully deprograms them against their will. Notice that he uses the pejorative description “werewolf”. That seems to be verbal manipulation. Don’t misunderstand me. I think that those individuals who are trapped in silly cults are definitely victims; but they are victims of themselves, not of something out there.

Snapping is a phenomenon that appears to have extreme moments at both ends. A moment of sudden, intense change may occur when a person enters a cult, during lectures, rituals and physical ordeals. Another change may take place with equal, or ever greater, abruptness when the subject is deprogrammed and made to think again. Once this breakthrough is achieved, however, the person is not just “snapped out” and home free. Deprogramming always requires a period of rehabilitation to counteract an interim condition Patrick called “floating”.
“Deprogramming is like taking a car out of the garage that hasn’t been driven for a year,” he said. “The battery has gone down, and in order to start it up you’ve got to put jumper cables on it. It will start up then, but if you turn the key off right away it will go dead again. So you keep the motor running until it builds up its own power. This is what rehabilitation is. Once we get the mind working, we keep it working long enough so that the person gets in the habit of thinking and making decisions again.” (Conway and Siegelman, 1978)

Siegelman and Conway now come to the crucial question:

The grave questions Patrick first flamboyantly brought to public attention are not ones we can choose to like or dislike — nor will they simply go away if we ignore them. Is an individual free to give up his freedom of thought? May a religion, popular therapy, political movement, or any other enterprise systematically attack human thought and feeling in the name of God, the pursuit of happiness, personal growths or spiritual fulfillment? These are questions that Americans, perhaps more than others, are not prepared to deal with, because they challenge long-standing constitutional principles and cultural assumptions about the nature of the mind, personality and human freedom itself. … In a statement more prescient at the time than either of us knew, Patrick became somber, concerned over what he saw as the public’s growing apathy in the face of the cult world’s increasing wealth, power and social legitimacy.

The cult movement is the greatest threat and danger to this country that we have ever had. But the people won’t wake up, the government, Congress, the Justice Department won’t wake up until something bad happens. (Conway and Siegelman, 1978)

When I originally wrote The Wave, I saw the idea of cult deprogramming as similar to what we do and similar to what the Cassiopaeans did for me. The big difference was, of course, that I asked for the information that was received; no one kidnapped me and beat me over the head to wake me up. However, given the nature of the world, where knowledge is power, and the nature of the research we do — helping people to think, to acquire knowledge, which includes knowledge of religion and religious states — it is hardly surprising that we would be targeted with the kind of libel and defamation for which COINTELPRO is famous: they started calling us a cult.

That said, considering the work we do, the slander directed towards us was an astonishing blow to me, and of course, to our body of work. It was only much later I realized that the accusations were being made for the very purpose of diverting people from reading my work and therefore diverting them from engaging in the very deprogramming process we discussed. After all, if so many people were being freed from the cultic hold of mainstream religion by reading it and realizing that science and religious feeling are not mutually exclusive, it’s clear that the Powers That Be knew that something had to be done.

In fact, in articles posted on our website and every day as part of our Signs of the Times (http://sott.net) news website, we report on the many inconsistencies and hypocrisies that are evident in the major organized religions and their New Age offshoots and the controlling influences they obviously exert upon many millions of people. At the same time, we are attempting to discern true religion — a marriage of science and mysticism. After all, religion means “to bring back together”, to become whole (re- = back + ligare = bind together. I.E. bas: *leg = to collect).

One of the most remarkable things about this however, is that anyone is free to look objectively at our work and stated intentions and quickly and clearly see that we fail miserably in terms of cult qualifications as they are presented in the world today, which are essentially fascist in nature. As a slight diversion, I want to suggest that the reader consider this issue of “cults” more closely, by reading an article on the website by Joe Quinn called Cult-ivating Terror. As Joe shows quite well, the definition of cult has changed greatly in the years since Jim Jones, David Koresh, Heaven’s Gate, etc. Mainstream religions are no longer referred to as cults, which are seen to have a strong element of coercion.

Every definition of cult requires that the group in question have some form of religious aspect or worship as a fundamental basis or their raison d’etre. Of course, this could be said of any religious group, but it really becomes a problem when it takes the form of the glorification of a single individual as godlike rather than focusing on an idea or ideal as the object of cultic value. At the same time, we have to consider that there are some — probably very few — human beings whose accomplishments or work do make them worthy of being held in high esteem (take Gurdjieff, for example). There is certainly something to be said for achieving higher levels of consciousness and conscience, and such individuals who have done so could be examples and role models and helpers. In short, they should be ready to wash other people’s feet.

But there’s a difference between high esteem and believing that someone is going to save you. No one can save anyone, they can only teach, show a way, set an example, and perhaps support others with advice, material support, emotional support, etc. In fact, those who claim to offer such salvation are often psychopaths. Such leaders never admit to being wrong or even normal humans. They worship themselves and expect worship from their followers. The unfortunate thing is that there is any number of whacko snake-oil types out there who are waiting to snag people — most of whom are abysmally ignorant — who seek out religions (cults) because they are trying to get relief.

In his book The Corruption of Reality, John Schumaker points out that human beings seem to come hardwired with a need to dissociate. I think that this is actually a need to make contact with the higher self. Nevertheless, this hardwiring is present in all brains whether that individual could be considered potentially souled or not. In some people the brain’s ability to dissociate can simply be a normal way of coping, or can result in Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), or other mental disorders. In the potentially souled individual, the brain’s capacity to dissociate could be utilized as it may have originally been intended: a means of shutting down the physical and connecting with the spiritual.

In any event, it seems clear from the evidence Schumaker presents that it is a hardwired function just waiting to be taken advantage of by any snake-oil salesman that comes along. It is also abundantly evident that those who do not utilize this ability of the brain — those who suppress it — suffer from other disorders.

There is an epidemic in the world today that doesn’t get near enough attention — the epidemic of stress. According to the latest statistics, human beings are 100 times more likely to have significant emotional and mental problems than people born a hundred years ago. Adult rates of depression and anxiety have tripled just since 1990. Over 80% of people who go to a doctor with physical problems also complain of excessive stress. These problems are increasing so fast that, within the next ten years or so, the primary causes of early death and disability will be stress, outranking most diseases, accidents and violence.

But we keep coming back to that little problem that people need to know how to 1) deal with their stress in a healthy way, i.e. using dissociative techniques positively; 2) use dissociative techniques to fuse the many aspects of the conscious mind while, at the same time, making direct contact with the higher self. Those true and workable techniques (which work because of the hard-wiring of the brain) have been taken and utilized by the snake-oilers to line their own pockets, to inculcate into people ideas and beliefs that are patently false and have no relationship to reality. They have been used to turn large groups of people against other large groups of people for the personal agendas of the snake-oil types and their cronies (the marriage between religion and politics is ancient), to foment wars, pogroms, persecutions, and so on.

In the end, the problem is not so much the issue of “cult” or “religion” per se, but who or what is creating it, promulgating it, and for what reason. It may very well be that there is only one true Christianity and only one true religion — the common understanding held between all individuals with developed conscience and consciousness — but that doesn’t mean that anybody really knows what it is. We think we are getting close to it by means of both inspiration followed by hard research and experimentation, but it’s still only an approximation. Now, we see through a glass darkly … a work in progress.

In light of the above analysis of the status of cults in our society and just what qualifies any group for cult status, it is clear from our perspective — and surely from anyone who has taken even a cursory glance at our work and research — that our detractors and those that would seek to slander and defame us, must find another pigeon-hole in which to stuff us, or another allegation to level at us, for we simply do not qualify for the cult label in the modern definition with all its accompanying negative connotations.

We do not practice any forms of coercion or manipulation; they are anathema to the common morals we share as human beings. We simply attempt to offer an opportunity to those who feel they may understand the application of the theories we have developed, and to provide a safe environment for them to do so. Above all we value free will and the right for each person to decide and choose for themselves. At the same time we are not so naive to fail as to realize that to some this concept is detestable. So detestable, in fact, that they want very much to shut us down, drive us off the Internet, and if possible, destroy us completely.

Alternatively, for those that prefer to ignore reason and objective evidence, they may continue to label us a cult as they wish. However in such a case, in the interest of logical consistency, they should also assign the cult moniker to every other research body and organization that honestly pursues its goals, openly seeks to network with other researchers with the necessary skills, and freely offers the results of its work in a public forum for the scrutiny of all — for that is what we do.

Our broad research goals are clearly defined, nothing other than an honest desire to pursue these goals as part of a network of like-minded individuals is asked or required of any potential group members. Our online school is still free to any applicant who is qualified by virtue of being as free as possible of cultic thinking and beliefs. No one is required to pay anything at all, and we ask only for donations that are commensurate with the perceived value of our work by the participant. No one has ever been excluded for financial reasons from full participation in every aspect of our work. As an innate function of the research we do and the networking principles that guide it, any benefits are shared equally by all.

It is indeed a lamentable state of affairs that we feel obliged to address the question of cults at all. However, the explosion in recent years of groups of all shapes and forms has given rise to many charlatans and disinformation artists. From the evidence available, it appears that many of them have less than honorable intentions towards their prospective audience and potential members. In fact, we have investigated many of these disinformation groups and artists in our research and the results are published on our website. In this respect we are happy to be able to contribute to the efforts of all those that seek objective and verifiable truth in the face of lies and deceit, whatever their origin.

We hope that, as a result of this brief analysis, we may have provided the reader with a slightly deeper understanding of the “cult” label and phenomena. As with all our research, our goal was to provide as balanced and objective analysis as possible and as a result help to shed further light on this rather complicated subject. In particular, we hope we have drawn attention to the various factors that have lead to the current climate in which the “cult” label can so easily be used to unfairly discredit and malign a group or organization, which may nevertheless possess genuinely honest intentions and information.

What is interesting is the fact that the issue of cults was brought to the attention of the world in the context of variations on Christianity. It was only later applied to other types of groups such as UFO cults, including the various instances of mass suicides like the Solar Temple cult in Switzerland and Heaven’s Gate. The progression of this process has continued so that now, it is the very type of Christianity that was originally labeled cult has taken over the world via the Christian Right Dominionists.

These are, admittedly, extremes, but the fact is that deprogramming was not initially looked on favorably in this country, and rightly so. Many deprogrammers who followed Ted Patrick have spent years in the courts fighting lawsuits, or years in prisons serving sentences for violating a person’s right to give up their free will to any cult they choose. What is strangely contradictory about this, however, is the fact that now, the cult deprogrammer in the service of the mainstream religions has become an “expert”. We should have seen the handwriting on the wall when the government called in self-proclaimed “expert” Rick Ross to advise them on how to handle the Branch Davidians, resulting in their murder and immolation at Waco. And most of all, we notice that the biggest cults — the mainstream religions — are allowed to continue to deceive people exactly as small groups are accused of doing.

The important thing about the above described deprogramming process is that it is a down-to-earth example of what the Cassiopaeans talk about when they say over and over again, “knowledge protects, ignorance endangers”, with the huge exception that a person has the right to choose whether or not they will be deprogrammed. It also exemplifies in a very dramatic way, the process by which the Cassiopaeans communicate. They are deprogramming us because we asked.

Over and over again I receive letters from people who want to know why the Cassiopaeans won’t just answer every question and give them all the inside scoop on the nature of the universe.

Well, at this point, we have a pretty good idea that all the sources that do exactly that may have an agenda that is not necessarily inclusive of our free will! Yes, they may give truth about the cosmos and describe for us the many planes and realities and laws and so on and so forth. But, it seems that many of them have done so in such a way as to not only obscure the real things we need to be applying ourselves to here at our level, but in ways designed to actually keep us at this level. What good does it do us to know that, at seventh density, all is one, when the lesson of this density is to choose one or the other polarity? It is rather like teaching a child the theory of flying a jet plane when, in actual fact, that child has no access to a jet, and even if he did, would not fit into the seat, would not reach the controls, and would have no practical experience to guide him even if he could overcome those difficulties, so that at the first sign of any variable he would end up in a fiery heap at the end of the runway.

Michael Topper, who uses the nom de plume “Marshall Telemachus” or sometimes “Mother Terasu”, among others, has some interesting things to say on the subject. The following is drawn from a series of articles he wrote. After producing a great deal of material, most of which was published by Val Valerian in his series of Matrix books, he more or less disappeared from the scene. The series is long and complex, and the complex language usage makes it almost inaccessible to the average reader. I am sure that this was intended, because it is hard work to read it. There is no free lunch in the universe. In this series, he gives away incredible secrets of reality; but you still have to work to get it.

I have here synopsized and condensed a portion of one section of this series with great effort to assure that I have retained the content intact.2

The Positive/Negative Realms
of Higher Densities

In the higher densities, the name of the game is consciousness. This simply means that the higher densities of existence, whether positive or negative in orientation, all recognize that the business of being and existence everywhere is consciousness. Becoming more and more aware.

The difference is that the positive guys recognize consciousness as being an integrative activity of mutual networking and interdependence because they view all others as self, and therefore seek to help and assist because the others are self, in an absolute sense. In this way, absolute consciousness or God is glorified, if you wish to put it in those terms.

The control system, on the other hand, play the game in terms of domination, subjugation and absorption of other consciousness. But they too understand that the rules of the game posit that in order for them to truly consume into their being another consciousness, that this other must choose to become part of this self-aggrandizement. An unwilling food source is not as nutritious. If the consciousness does not choose, it becomes a poison to the consciousness that seeks to consume it.

So, we have to understand here that the true agenda of the negative realm is to consume consciousness. So, this actually prevents an overt take-over in literal, physical terms. If an invasion were detected, this would mean the veil would be lifted and all would see the “man behind the curtain”, would be disgusted and would turn away. Just as in the Wizard of Oz, those ruby slippers must be obtained very carefully!

Gathering the essence is an art of great subtlety. The agenda of the negative realm is in its purest sense stalking.

The aim of stalking is to create a completely controlled artificial environment composed of thoroughly predictable human behaviors. Behaviors made predictable because the humans have been programmed to respond to cues of conditioning, inculcated through centuries of lies and obfuscations presented in the form of religions. And all of this revolves around a story that is actually untrue, and wholly misrepresentative of the actual negative aim.

For centuries these programming signals have been being set up — either because of time travel capabilities, or because of actual historical presence. Various prophets or religious leaders have been influenced to preach, teach, or prophesy philosophies designed to lay a foundation for later take-over — possibly in our present time. When people begin to wisen up, those in the negative realm simply go back into the past, add something to the soup to adjust for the new awareness. This then acts as a domino effect and influences our present. Time loops and all that. A lot of people think that the alien invasion scenario is a ruse concocted by the government to create the impression that there is a forming “threat,” thereby enabling the institution of a New World Order. But, this idea is based on a misrepresentation of the process just described.

The important thing to remember is this: there is not a unified conspiratorial activity going on here in the hierarchy of government. The divide and conquer effect has also manifested at this level and suits the alien purposes to a tee. Such activity at all levels is consistent with their program of stalking, in which confusion and cross-purpose prevent a clear perception on the part of the stalkees.

Yet, at some deep level there may be a direct conspiratorial interaction between the secret government and the negative aliens … but it is unlikely that any name of those involved would be recognized by anyone, no matter how in the know they are regarding the subject. These secret superiors are just that: secret. Any organization you can name, or about which you are aware, are merely outer circles.

What is the designed objective of this stalking? It is two-fold. First, the effect of stalking is sort of like stampeding a herd of cattle. Bit by bit, they are consolidated into a negative mode that consists of the idea of “us vs. them”. Even though on the surface it may seem that this mode is positive or STO, (i.e., save the world because it is wrong or flawed, or blighted with original sin or whatever) the very fact that it is formed in the dominator mode of perceiving salvation outside, means that it can more easily be taken over in body, mind, and soul, at a level that is unseen and imperceptible. In other words: Satan can and most often does appear as an angel of light!

It is only at the lower levels of the power structure that many still believe they are playing out the basic antagonism and self-protection roles. They believe that sending love and light to those in need is appropriate, without realizing that this activity is predicated upon a deep belief that there is something wrong, in error, in rebellion, and thus becomes again, “us vs. them”.

There is evidence that extensive implant technology may be used to ensure influenced obedience; yet a degree of freedom must be conserved through the consciousness due to the essential fact that the valued commodity is consciousness. A completely drugged, surgically altered and thoroughly programmed psyche is only good for robotic service (and this may also be taking place, by the way). It is in this understanding that we find our way out of the trap. It isn’t easy, but it is a way.

The primary object of negative stalking is to persuade through strongly influenced but not robotic behavior pattern. For the free choice of the targeted consciousness to align with negative higher density existence. Because, in the long run, the object is the eating of functioning units of consciousness by the negative hierarchy, with free will intact. Otherwise, it is not good food.

And this is where physics comes in again … because the conserved element of true consciousness is the irreducible value of free will. The mind of the subject must retain free will, which distinguishes consciousness as such.

The instant the negative polarization is chosen as a result of true prerogative of free will, the subject functionally becomes a part of the higher density negative entity responsible for having induced the choice in the first place. And this is regardless of the deceptive means employed, or the persuasive misrepresentations used in conditioning the terms through which the fateful choice is made. In other words, confusion, physical, emotional and mental pain, exhaustion, blackmail, and even forms of torture are legitimate modes of persuasion. Of course, the more subtle the means used, the more value is retained.

A tortured consciousness is the equivalent to being overcooked. Many higher density negative entities are veritable connoisseurs. They particularly relish the subversion of those who are truly pure and strong willed.

There’s an immediate psychic bond in this relationship to the higher density negative entity; the handler of the human agent who is now a functional part of his new master, and, the negative hierarchy is proportionately enhanced with each induction of an additional member.

In other words: the negative hierarchy is a pyramidal food chain. The apex of the pyramid is comprised of the most persistent of negative graduates, the one who has stuck it out against every evidence of diminishment, and is the ultimate example of wishful thinking.

This ultimate wishful thinking means they cannot see that they do not become God by assimilation and control of others but that the real result is a gradual compaction, implosion, and dissolution into primal matter and Non-being.

And here is where physics comes in again to help us get a handle on this conflict: without duality, there would be no existence to discuss.

From the One there is bilateral emergence. Exactly one half joyfully seek life, creation, play, and exploration … a love of adventure of sorts. The other half expresses a fundamental fear of losing self in this play and exploration. This causes it to recoil upon itself and thus establishes the tension of polarization. This is the stuff of which the cosmos are constructed.

This can be more easily understood as “love of God through others,” i.e., by loving others unconditionally as God, since all are one, even though differentiated; as opposed to “Love of God through self”, i.e., believing that love of himself is love of God, therefore others must love him too.

The former view sees all others as self, and loves all and seeks to serve others. The latter sees only self and seeks to appropriate all others to self so as to restore equilibrium; to go back to the cosmic sleep of Oneness.

One analogy would be the difference between a free and adventurous child who is full of the sense of adventure as opposed to a child who wishes to own the mother and cling to her and incorporate her to himself, i.e., jealousy.

The love of God through self is in fact a state of consciousness that has existed from the very beginning of individuation and which covets attention for itself alone. This consciousness hates, fears and deeply distrusts creation, and just wants to effectively roll over and go back to sleep in eternal union with the One.

An important point here is: this negative consciousness arises from the self viewing self at the instant of creation and is therefore an integral part of creation. It cannot be separated from creation because it exists only due to positive creative inception. Neither can exist without the other. It’s that simple.

Negative consciousness — or darkness ­— is the selfness of creation. The gravity that draws all that exists back to itself. It is the aspect of the One involved in contemplation and rejection of creativity in its own heart. Frozen in that moment of vertigo; experienced at the outrush of creative energy.

And, because this state of consciousness occurs in conjunction with and precisely because of creative potential, and is in fact identified through that factor, it cannot be done away with without all returning to the One and just going back to sleep. Thus we see that the efforts to save the world via punishment of the wicked, or conversion to the light or spiritualizing matter with love, are all expressions of the fundamental desire to undo creation itself; to kill God. Through the idea that darkness is a rebellion, a fault, a thing to be done away with, the twist is introduced that lays the groundwork for domination and absorption. This is why, even though promulgated “Christian principles” seem to be good and uplifting and in fact can be, the fundamental raison is flawed and also expresses itself throughout Christian history in such ways as the many slaughters that have been instituted in the name of Christianity.

So the bottom line is: this other half of the all, this darkness born along with the creative upsurge, becomes focused on actualizing its own impulse. To undo creation. For it realizes that only then can it be at peace.

The only way it can achieve this ideal narcissistic withdrawal into itself in infinite self-contemplation is through reclaiming all attention and consciousness. This is in effect borrowed against the inconceivable magnitude of consciousness in cosmic sleep.

Darkness becomes, in effect, an incurable insomniac.

The consciousness of darkness feels that it must tear apart the creative fabric of existence, thereby liberating the units of energy involved in the creative functions and swallow them back into itself, erasing their differential properties and powers so as to restore the One as One.

Itself.

However, this is not clearly seen at the lower densities until the masks are stripped away. The deepest implications of this are hidden by many veils. And even fourth and fifth density participants do not necessarily comprehend this ultimate dissolution. Much like the ultimate light eater preaching the gospel of devolution as though it were salvation.

The important thing in the above article that I want to draw your attention to is:

The control system, on the other hand, play the game in terms of domination, subjugation and absorption of other consciousness. But they too understand that the rules of the game posit that in order for them to truly consume into their being another consciousness, that this other must choose to become part of this self-aggrandizement. An unwilling food source is not as nutritious. If the consciousness does not choose, it becomes a poison to the consciousness that seeks to consume it.

Note the key term: choose. In some way or manner the individual must be induced to choose to become part of their food. How are you going to make somebody choose to be your food? Well, clearly it is not going to happen by saying, “Hey! Ya wanna be lunch?” Nope. Won’t work. If it were that obvious, clearly they would starve to death over at fourth density STS HQ!

So, what to do? Well, the first step in the grand deception began many thousands of years ago with what we today call our standard religions. It was fairly easy at that time to bring people under subjection via these myths and dramas, to induce servitude to the one true God, and other similar nonsense.

One of the main clues that these religions are indeed cults is the fact that it has been forbidden for almost two thousand years to even question the dogmas of the various faiths. In fact, tens of thousands of people who did ask a few reasonable questions were burned at the stake.

Now, I ask you: is truth so fragile a thing that it must be protected against honest doubt? If it is truth, all the questions in the world will only serve to establish this more securely. Somebody (and it is now thought by many analysts to have been the scribe Ezra during the Babylonian captivity, or even propagandists during the Maccabean revolt) assembled a great deal of stories in many variations, and tried to make it a continuous historical thread by adding in a completely fictional genealogy, and that is what came to be known as the Bible.

The fact is, when we are talking about such fuzzy things as religion and history, we immediately come up against a certain problem. As the reader might know, I spent many years as a hypnotherapist as part of my search for answers within the realm of mind. This work gave me a unique perspective on just about every other branch of study I have since followed. The main thing I learned from this is that most if not all human perspective is rooted in emotional thinking. Emotions have a curious tendency to frame and color what we see, experience, and remember so that what we think becomes, very often, a matter of wishful thinking.

In doing good science, a researcher must be aware of this tendency to be fooled by one’s own mind — one’s own wishes. A good scientist, because he is aware of this, must scrutinize things he wishes to accept as fact in a more or less unemotional state, as far as is possible. Things must be challenged, taken apart, compared, tested for their ability to explain other things of a like nature, and if a flaw is found, no matter how small, if it is firmly established as a flaw, the hypothesis must be killed.

The problem with the subject of the Bible and history is that there are so many fields that can contribute data — archaeology, paleontology, geology, linguistics, and so forth. On the other side we have mythology and history. They are unfortunately quite similar because, as it is well known, the victors write history. And people are prone to do many evil deeds in difficult situations, which they later wish to cover up to present themselves in a more positive light for posterity.

Now, in terms of the Bible as history, one needs to ask a very simple set of questions: who wrote the Bible and why?

I had a long conversation once with an individual who spent many years in military intelligence and who told me, “One of the primary rules of intelligence is to see the situation clearly … to observe what is, as it is, and then extrapolate to who might benefit, and there you will find why.” In terms of the Bible, we really ought to look at it in these terms when we are trying to discover things. Because, it might be thought, in the end what we want is the truth, right? And if that is the case, we have to do things to our hypotheses with the data plugged in that is very much like what is done to a new car … put it on a rack and try to wear it out with stress testers to see what the tolerances are.

In terms of ideas about what may or may not have happened in the past, when we form a working hypothesis we have to challenge our assumptions — assuming that we have put them together in the first place with as little wishful thinking as we can muster. The problem with using the Bible as history is the lack of secondary sources. There are tons of materials from the various ancient libraries prior to the 10th century bce, grist for the historian’s mill, but they fall silent almost completely at the close of the 20th dynasty in Egypt. Thus, the Bible, being pretty much the only alleged source about this particular period, becomes quite seductive.

But, might there be a reason for this silence?

The person who is using the Bible as history is forced, when all emotion is taken out of the picture, to admit that he has no means of checking the historical veracity of the biblical texts. Wishful thinking generally results in such statements as, “nevertheless materials relevant for the historian can be gathered from the narratives… [and] the work appears to be rich in materials of high value to the historian,” and, “There seems no reason to question the general reliability and the substantial accuracy of [the account’s] chronological sequence,” and, “There seems to be no good reason to doubt the existence of a historical kernel.”

Then, the same writer will say, “Our sources are the products of later working and editing, so that the original elements, more often than not, cannot be isolated with any exactitude.” And then he will turn around and do exactly that, stamping one passage as “a rather realistic report of what actually happened,” another as “legendary,” and another as “non-controversial matters of fact,” and others as “impossible to consider … a historical record.” As Donald Redford was compelled to say:

The standard scholarly approach to the history of Israel during the United Monarchy amounts to nothing more than a bad attack of academic ‘wishful thinking’. The scholars who admit, when pressed, that rigorous historical criticism forces us to discard the Biblical narratives, nevertheless will use them saying ‘what else do we have?’ (Redford, 1992)

Again, I ask: why?

In older times, we know that the many books written about the Bible as history were inspired from a fundamentalist motivation to confirm the religious rightness of Western civilization. In the present time, there is less of this factor involved in Biblical Historical studies. Nevertheless, there is still a tendency to treat these sources at face value by folks who ought to know better.

I could go on about this in some detail, but I think everyone reading this is with me in having a clue about what I’m saying, even if they don’t agree. But, the point is, again, “Who wrote the Bible and why?

I came across a curious remark by the medieval Jewish commentator Rashi saying, in effect, that the Genesis narrative was written to justify what we now call genocide. The God of Israel, who gave his people the “promised land”, had to be unequivocally supreme so that no one, not even the dispossessed, could appeal against his decrees (Isserlin, 1998).

In Umberto Eco’s The Search for the Perfect Language, the idea is suggested, though subtly, that the development of the Hebrew Bible, even if there were some ancient texts involved (though not nearly as ancient as most believers suppose), was primarily a promotion to validate Judaism. This validation was necessary in order to then validate Christianity as the one true religion. In other words, the rights of the Jews, the unappealable decrees of Jehovah/Yahweh, could be inherited by the Christian Church as instituted for political reasons by Constantine.

Again, during this period, we have the Dark Ages where very little secondary sources survived. Could there be a reason?

So, what we observe is a monotheistic system put in place over most of the globe. It is the well from which much in our society — our mores, ethics, judgments, etc. — are drawn. It has been the justification for the greatest series of bloodbaths in recorded history. Could there be a reason for this?

Now we have people here and there performing amazing feats of cerebral gymnastics with this material and other supposedly adjunct confirmation to their various hypotheses … all focused on a very strange thing: bloodlines. Now, what could be the reason for that?

When I think about this puzzle, the thing that occurs to me over and over again is this: the Bible was written to create a history for a group who possessed a particular commodity that was useful. This history was integral to the commodity. The commodity was a direct bloodline from Jesus back to Adam; and Adam, of course, was created by God. So, a concomitant element of the bloodline is authority. Domination. Service-to-Self.

There are certain particulars about the Bible that prompt the response, “methinks they protest too much.” That is, the genealogies mentioned above. I have taken the time and trouble to enter these things into a genealogy program just so I can have a really good handle on who is who. The problem is, they break off just when they ought not, and continue only when it is politic to create a link. Not only that, but the numbers involved don’t make sense in genealogical terms.

So, when I thought about it, it just seemed to me that there were a lot of what we call in genealogy (my hobby, by the way) “placeholders.” Now, suppose that this whole genealogy thing was created just as a ruse to give the impression of a long period of existence as a national entity.

Maybe the long history of the Jews was not, in fact, a fact. In all the sources I have studied, there are virtually no references to Israel, its founders or associates prior to the twelfth century bce. From that point, and for 400 years onwards, only a scarce few allusions can be derived. Half a dozen or so. But, the Bible has this extensive history of doings and folks doing this and that. Something is very fishy here. The Bible talks about big shots, Shepherd Kings with slews of critters and bevies of wives and children, stomping all over Canaan, striking terror into the hearts of those vile others.

When you study the Biblical references themselves, you find an absence of detail about the surrounding countries, including Egypt, that were dominant during the 2nd millennium. So dominant, in fact, that it would have been only a deliberate act at the time to not talk about it; or the result of somebody writing the stuff much later when Egypt was no longer a power to contend with.

Then, there are all the anomalies of the scriptures that reveal a real ignorance, not just silence. I’m sure all of you are familiar with these lists of contradictions, places out of time, and all that. Then, there are the peculiar duplications of stories. You are probably also familiar with that. You know, Abram and Sarai with the “she’s my sister, don’t kill me” routine. Then, the same story is told with Isaac and Rebekah in the starring roles. Most peculiar. The dates that are claimed don’t add up; the genealogies don’t make sense; the ignorance of the milieu of the time; the lack of many things that ought to be there; and the presence of things that ought not to be there. All these things are data.

What does this data tell us? It suggests a hypothesis that somebody made up a history out of various stories that were known and common to an amalgamated group, but may have all occurred within a much shorter period of time.

John Rhys and others went around collecting Celtic and Manx folk tales to write them down. When you read these tales, you see that there are any number of versions of the same story, some closer than others, some with name changes, place changes, time changes, and all of this from the same general culture. Then, when a hero accomplishes a different deed, you find that his name has been changed, though you know from certain clues that it is the same guy. This is true in other folk tales and mythologies.

Now, it is pretty well established that the Pentateuch was composed by combining four different source documents into one continuous history. That’s data. It is also clear that whoever did this clearly assembled them to make one continuous history. But, the dissonances in the document indicate that it was not. And, judging by comparing it to other collections of folk tales, if you leave out the genealogies that have been put in to create the impression that it is a long history, you have the same thing. Different stories about the deeds of a small handful of people who probably interacted within a very short period of time.

Okay, so suppose this is the case. What happens then? Well, it opens up the whole field in an incredible way. If this is the case, we can look for and find the points of commonality of the different characters that are presented as ancestors or descendants and merge them into a more likely event sequence. On the one hand, we have the historical traditions of Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Joshua and Judges and then we have the archaeological evidence and very minimal extra-Biblical textual evidence.

For centuries, to even ask who wrote the Bible could get you burned at the stake. That raises questions of its own, but even in the last century and the present, people are still trying to make it all fit. But, the plain fact is, it doesn’t. Unless you telescope it and find the right slot for it.

The data tells us that some time during the last part of the thirteenth century bce, Egypt knew of a group or political entity called Israel that had never merited mention before. From the Ramesside age, literary descriptions of upland Palestine reveal to us a group of pastoralists in the process of settling down. These guys, far from being kings were headmen of small pastoral communities — often destitute, lacking such essentials as transport and in constant danger of having their property confiscated by the Egyptians. It is a wild exaggeration to term these impoverished people “an agrarian elite of shepherd kings.” It is an unassailable fact that the culture of Iron Age Palestine, that is from 1200 to 1000 bce (when the Bible alleges such great things taking place with their cultural expansion), show no archaeological evidence of anything at all but a late Canaanite culture. Nothing “Israelite” can be discerned at all.

So, again, the hypothesis is this: that the Bible was put together deliberately to create a continuous, long history that didn’t actually exist. Available stories — factual, semi-factual, or “borrowed” — were used to make up this “history”. If the stories of the Bible are factual yet mythicized, as occurs in other mythologies, the names can change with the telling of specific incidents, though they may be talking about the same person as is named otherwise in a different story about a different incident. Add to that the deliberate fabrication of the compiler who had something to hide, and an agenda. The bottom line is that it was all used to produce a mind program that held sway for about two thousand years. With a little help from the Inquisition, and other strong-arm tactics.

But, in terms of who inspired the Bible and the resulting control system, we have to remember our friendly time travel guys. Remember what Ann Haywood said about her “travels with the demon lady”: “One night the Lady took me back in time. … The Lady took on the appearance of a beautiful woman in a blue robe. She performed miracles for them” How many religions, cults, New Age teachings and philosophies have been started thusly?

Friedrich Nietzsche wrote:

The Jews are the most remarkable nation of world history because, faced with the question of being or not being, they preferred, with a perfectly uncanny conviction, being at any price; the price they had to pay was the radical falsification of all nature, all naturalness, all reality, the entire inner world as well as the outer. They defined themselves counter to all those conditions under which a nation was previously able to live, was permitted to live; they made of themselves an antithesis of natural conditions — they inverted religion, religious worship, morality, history, psychology, one after the other, in an irreparable way into the contradiction of their natural values. (Aphorism 24, The Anti-Christ, 1888)

Our present Western world view is based upon the New Covenant of Jesus the Jew and the early progenitors of Christianity sought to validate Judaism in order to validate the lineage of Jesus right back to Adam so they could make the claim to the one, true God and religion, thereby establishing a control system so vast and far reaching that the entire world has been dominated by it ever since. In actual fact, the Christian community only continues to exist because the critical examinations of the Bible are mostly kept from them. Or, they are so programmed into the 11th Commandment, “Thou shalt not question,” that any attempt to discuss it in a rational way is met with the circular excuse: “For the believer an explanation is unnecessary, for the non-believer an explanation is impossible.” Talk about specious reasoning.

But this is not the place to talk extensively about the origins and background of the Bible and related monotheistic mind programs. The point is: in the past few hundred years, the old programming of the standard religions, wherein people were duped into choosing to be absorbed through the assembled myths and outright lies that came to be known as Holy Writ, has declined due to the advance of scientific research in the many fields that reveal to us a broader picture of the nature of the cosmos in which we live.

This, of course, led to many new questions being asked about the validity of the Old-Time Religion, and many answers were found that challenged the old faith and glory concepts. People were beginning to wake up a little bit here and there. Thus, it was necessary for the controllers of humankind to invent something new.

I have described above just how this proceeded through the last few decades of the New Age leap into consciousness exploration that has in many cases ended tragically. In other cases, however, it has certainly done its intended job. There are dozens of new sources that promote this or that cosmology, far more subtle and elaborate, to replace the archaic and now mostly outgrown fundamentalism of the past. In other words, we have a whole new program.

Surprisingly, with the help of the Neoconservatives and the theories of Leo Straus, even the Old-Time Religion made a big comeback, with George W. Bush as its nominal messiah.

As we have discussed, only those who have learned the lessons of third density will be ready to graduate to fourth density. There are many who do not choose to graduate. They like third density just fine. Even if it is suggested to them that an entire cycle in this density consists of the perception of 300,000 years or so, with many incarnations of varying sorts, they are perfectly willing to take the good with the bad. And that is a perfectly valid choice. But, for those who do wish to move from this classroom, so to speak, the new mind programs seem to be a concerted effort to prevent this.

What is so special about fourth density, you might ask? Well, apparently we cannot fully grasp the state as yet, just as a dog cannot grasp what it is like to be a human, but the Cassiopaeans have given us some intriguing clues, such as:

Remember, most all power necessary for altering reality and physicality is contained within the belief center of the mind. This is something you will understand more closely when you reach 4th density reality where physicality is no longer a prison, but is instead, your home, for you to alter as you please. (08-12-95)

From this remark, it seems clear that there is some distortion in the teaching, “you create your own reality by what you think and believe.” Yes, the Cassiopaeans are saying that the power to do this is contained within the belief center of the mind, but its activation seems only to be possible after one is in the fourth density state. This state is described as that of awareness, and awareness is based on knowledge of the environment and what actually is behind the symbol set of our reality.

So we return to the simple understandings we must achieve in order to graduate with the coming of the Wave.3 It is in this context that I am sharing these experiences and excerpts from the Cassiopaeans on the subject of mind programming. It is only in waking up that one has any hope of becoming sufficiently aware to become a fourth density candidate and in order to wake up, as we have seen in the above example, one must begin to use the mind; one must extract oneself from the illusions; one must begin to think; one must be deprogrammed.

From this idea we begin to understand the difference between the Cassiopaean method of stimulating us to think by leading us through various exercises and frustrating periods of excruciatingly tedious questions and answers. It is almost precisely the method described above as that which works to deprogram.

Over and over again the Cassiopaeans have said, “Think! Use your mind! Discover!” or have given only maddening hints, and then refused to give any more data until we have gone out and done our homework.

September 16, 1995

A: Questions that prompt reflection, reflection prompts analysis, analysis prompts conclusions, which builds knowledge, which fosters protection!!!

A: Learning builds spiritual growth, and awareness “solidifies” knowledge.

Q: (L) Mike Lindeman has proposed that we submit the channeling to “rigorous testing”.

A: Mike Lindeman does not channel, now does he? What sort of rigorous testing does he propose?

Q: (L) He didn’t say. I guess they want short-term predictions and all sorts of little tests…

A: Precisely, now what does this tell you?

Q: (L) It tells us that he wants proof.

A: Third density “proof” does not apply, as we have explained again and again. Now, listen very carefully: if proof of that type were possible, what do you suppose would happen to free will, and thusly to learning, Karmic Directive Level One?

Q: (L) Well, I guess that if there is proof, you are believing in the proof and not the spirit of the thing. You are placing your reliance upon a material thing. You have lost your free will. Someone has violated your free will by the act of proving something to you.

A: If anyone chooses to believe, that is their prerogative! And what would constitute proof?

Q: (L) Predictions that came true, answers that were verifiable about a number of things.

A: Those would still be dismissed by a great many as mere coincidences. We have already given predictions, will continue to do so, but remember, “time” does not exist. This is a 3rd density illusion. We do not play in that sandbox and cannot and never will. The primary reason for our communication is to help you to learn by teaching yourselves to learn, thereby strengthening your soul energy, and assisting your advancement.

April 18, 1998

Q: (A) I was exchanging email with a Spanish guy, and this Spanish guy was a funny guy; he was very interested in this Cassiopaean business. But, he wanted to have a proof of some kind. I was trying to explain to him that it was impossible to have proof. So, I was asking myself why I couldn’t ask even a simple mathematical question. I am sure I would not get an answer, and I would like to know why?

A: Because, as you know, mathematics is a concrete field of study, as opposed to an abstract one. Oh yes, there is theoretical mathematics, and some types of mathematics involve variable interpretation. But… in general terms, we are speaking of a scientific field, which connects concepts in order to uncover truths. Therefore, to employ mathematical communication in this conduit would likely rob one of the free will initiatives in respect to learning.

Q: (A) I don’t understand. For instance, if I ask for the square root of seven, why can’t you answer? Don’t you know or don’t you want to tell me?

A: Do you know it?

Q: (A) I don’t know it right off hand, but I can compute it in two minutes. Then I will know it.

A: Then there is no need to tell you, is there? We wish to reiterate something further on this subject, Arkadiusz, and for anyone else in need of the following message: we are not communicating with you in order to “prove” our existence. If one has faith and is willing to learn, to explore new realms and to discover what will one “day” be commonplace awareness profile, then no “proof” is necessary. If, on the other hand, one is of the opposite psychic orientation, then no amount of proof is adequate.

Q: (A) Yes, I think it is like the story of the crocodile skin where you can make wishes, and with every wish it becomes smaller. And, you are told that when it becomes too small, then you die. And, of course, you try, and say “let me do one more wish…” and that is it. Once you make the choice to ask and not do the work, then it becomes easier and easier and you want more and more… and your own will and force becomes smaller and smaller… (L) I think that the most important thing that has come out of this channeling is that sometimes the Cs sort of trick me into trying something and they pique my curiosity and I go out and do something that results in a learning experience that is truly awesome. And the important thing is, getting out and doing the work actually makes you stronger. And, like you just said, each time you make the choice to not go after the answer yourself, to try and get it the easy way, it makes you weaker and lessens who you are. (F) Yes, and the crucial point is the robbing of free will initiative.

April 15, 1995

Q: (L) Is there anything you wish to tell us before we shut down for the night?

A: Reread information given about attack warning and discuss amongst yourselves for strengthening of learning and knowledge base for purposes of protection and ultimately, survival!!

June 10, 1995

A: You are still asking a question. What we are asking you to do instead is ask yourselves, discuss and come up with the answer. … This is the correct way to go about discovering the answer to this question rather than demanding all of the answers of us. You have the capabilities to pull the answers from within. We are more than happy to assist, but our goal is to help you strengthen yourselves for future use, if you will. It all helps one to advance and progress. All there is is lessons. It’s all learning. Therefore, the quickest, the strongest way to learn is to use your own capabilities to that end. Asking us questions is certainly permitted, and helpful, but trying to seek all of the information from this particular source, in the long run, may be detrimental. Now, if you will continue, please…

January 20, 1996

Q: (L) Does acquiring knowledge in a spiritual sense assist in the development of knowledge in other areas, such as communication?

A: Correctness in all areas, as agreed upon by convention, can only serve to help or improve or strengthen all processes.

June 19, 1999

A: Knowledge is power. If we give it to you like Halloween candy, it is diffused.

The most interesting thing to me about the Cassiopaean communication has been the exponential growth in my awareness, my life force, and my ability to truly discern and navigate through dangers that previously would have devastated me (and did) physically, mentally, and emotionally. And it seems that it is because they are, in effect, deprogramming our minds through their often frustrating interactions that challenge our minds, break down our illusions and delusions, and more than anything, make us think.

The Cs are here to help us break free of the programming we have been under for the past many thousands of years. Yes, sometimes what they say is shocking, uncomfortable, controversial, or just plain infuriating. I have been so upset with them on occasions that I refused to talk to them for weeks on end. One correspondent even said they were “arrogant.” They have been called “cold and cruel” because they wouldn’t coddle anyone. Many people have thought, “Oh! Goody! A new channeled source where I can go and get confirmation of my ideas or the teachings of so and so that I like so much!” And the Cassiopaeans will gently inform them they need to get rid of their assumptions and open their minds. Of course, such people always think that they do have open minds because they have escaped the Old-Time Religion and are now on the right track with Swami So-and-so or Lord Sandyanda of the Galactic Federation or whoever.

So they drag all their assumptions and elaborate castles in the air to the session and, when they don’t get the answers they want, they run back to the warmth and comfort of other sources that will give them the answer to every question they ask — even if the answer is later proven to be wrong or simply does not hold up to rational review or simple research. The most classic example of this is in the following exchange:

September 16, 1995

Q: (L) Any other questions? (RC) I’m not going to ask because they didn’t really answer what I wanted to hear.

Go figure.

Let’s just have one last look at what Mr. Patrick, “Black Lightning” had to say about deprogramming before we move on to the next, final section on mind programming:

“Deprogramming is like taking a car out of the garage that hasn’t been driven for a year. The battery has gone down, and in order to start it up you’ve got to put jumper cables on it. It will start up then, but if you turn the key off right away it will go dead again. So you keep the motor running until it builds up its own power. This is what rehabilitation is. Once we get the mind working, we keep it working long enough so that the person gets in the habit of thinking and making decisions again.” (Ted Patrick in Conway and Siegelman, 1978)

And that is, in essence, the purpose of the Cassiopaeans as they have stated over and over again. If you are looking for a new prophet or a new system of belief, you might as well look elsewhere right now. Take the blue pill and be done with it!

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth — more than death. Thought is subversive, and revolutionary, destructive and terrible; thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habits; thought is anarchic and lawless, indifferent to authority, careless to the well-tried wisdom of the ages. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid… Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man.

But if thought is to become the possession of the many, and not the privilege of the few, we must have done with fear. It is fear that holds men back — fear that their cherished beliefs should prove delusions, fear lest the institutions by which they live should prove harmful, fear lest they themselves prove less worthy to the respect than they have supposed themselves to be.

…Bertrand Russell, 1926
