WACO: The Rules of Engagement

WACO: The Rules of Engagement (1/2)

WACO: The Rules of Engagement (2/2)

The first full-length documentary film to present the complete picture of the series of events outside Waco, Texas during 1993 that resulted in the shooting of 4 federal agents and the deaths of 86 men, women, and children of the Branch Davidian religious sect.

A highly detailed examination of the interaction between David Koresh, his members, and Federal Law Enforcement. It shows how the FBI misled the public and American political leaders in order to focus overwhelming force on a group whose diversity of race, national origin, and apocalyptic religious beliefs made its members easy targets for lethal abuse of civil and human rights. Gripping and deeply thought provoking, the film provides America with something it truly needs - an opportunity to review the historical record of events at Waco. The findings raise doubts about the FBI's version of the story and their larger role in similar instances of law enforcement.

Florida mulls Salvia ban

Excellent post from Dosenation:
The nation's sunniest state has been mulling the criminalization of Salvia Divinorum, because, you know, "Won't somebody please think of the children?"

"As soon as we make one drug illegal, kids start looking around for other drugs they can buy legally. This is just the next one," said Florida state Rep. Mary Brandenburg, who has introduced a bill to make possession of salvia a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

As the prison industry continues its dizzying rise toward it's inevitable conclusion - where what's good for the prisons is good for America - it's nice to see that Florida's lawmakers are marching in lock-step toward the day when That Which Is Not Prohibited Is Mandatory. Sigh.

Irrational Rationalism

Thanks to Altered States for this great post:

Robert Anton Wilson: I coined the term irrational rationalism because those people claim to be rationalists, but they're governed by such a heavy body of taboos. They're so fearful, and so hostile, and so narrow, and frightened, and uptight and dogmatic. I thought it was a fascinating paradox: irrational rationalists. Later on I found out I didn't invent that. Somebody else who wrote an article on CSICOP, that's the group they all belong to: Committee for Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal. Somebody else who wrote about them also used the term irrational rationalism. It's a hard term to resist when you think about those people.

The quote is taken from this interview.

For more about the subject, see also "Pseudoskepticism".

Synchromysticism is the art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance, I just like to explain it occasionally for people who aren't familiar with it yet. Some actors really resonate archetypal flows in their career.

The Secret Sun has a great series of posts up on Steve Carrell's Synchromystic career.

    Concerned It Could Become the New Marijuana (What now? :p), Lawmakers Consider Regulating Salvia

    On Web sites touting the mind-blowing powers of Salvia Divinorum, come-ons to buy the hallucinogenic herb are accompanied by warnings: "Time is running out! ... stock up while you still can.''

    That's because salvia is being targeted by lawmakers concerned that the inexpensive and easy-to-obtain plant could become the next marijuana. Eight states have already placed restrictions on salvia, and 16 others, including Florida, are considering a ban or have previously.
    Called nicknames like Sally-D, Magic Mint and Diviner's Sage, salvia is a hallucinogen that gives users an out-of-body sense of traveling through time and space or merging with inanimate objects. Unlike hallucinogens like LSD or PCP, however, salvia's effects last for a shorter time, generally up to an hour.

    No known deaths have been attributed to salvia's use, but it was listed as a factor in one Delaware teen's suicide two years ago.
    "I got some hostile e-mails from people who sold these products,'' Strain said. "You don't make everybody happy when you outlaw drugs. You save one child and it's worth it.''

    What BS. Yeah let's make everything that has the potential to be a factor for depression & suicide illegal. Let's start with politics, war, the economic system,... point made? :p

    24-hour Medical Marijuana Vending Machines

    LOS ANGELES - The city that popularized the fast food drive-thru has a new innovation: 24-hour medical marijuana vending machines.

    Patients suffering from chronic pain, loss of appetite and other ailments that marijuana is said to alleviate can get their pot with a dose of convenience at the Herbal Nutrition Center, where a large machine will dole out the drug around the clock.

    "Convenient access, lower prices, safety, anonymity," inventor and owner Vincent Mehdizadeh said, extolling the benefits of the machine.

    Jake Kotze: The JFK Stargate Mega Ritual

    Syncnificant list of Synchromystic connections of by Jake Kotze, check the comments for a few more connections. I really loved this bit:

    This is a wonderful opportunity to attempt to explain a most subtle point about synchronicity and symbolism. "King-Kill 33" highlights in my mind the most pervasive error found in synchromysticism and related esoteric/conspiracy circles. This error, one that I have suffered under myself, veils a giant festering neurosis that needs to be brought into the light of consciousness in order for it to heal.

    The error is this:
    Finding symbolism and synchronicity that resonates with a certain group or subject (like Masonry) and then attributing its wellspring to similarly resonating entities instead of the true source of all symbols, Being or consciousness itself.
    Attributing a thing or form as source for stuff in space/time, when all emanates from beyond thought and form.

    Masonry (and any mystery school or order) did not and cannot create anything, Being (pure unconditioned consciousness) beyond thought and form creates and animates all things (symbols, signs, synchronicity). Masonry can adopt symbols, images and themes that resonate powerful forces and mysterious life cycles. It can however not claim singular authorship of these forces or there associated symbols.

    Charles Hoy Fort

    Charles Hoy Fort (6 August 1874 – 3 May 1932) was an American writer and researcher into anomalous phenomena.

    Jerome Clark writes that Fort was "Essentially a satirist hugely skeptical of human beings' — especially scientists' claims to ultimate knowledge". (see Pyrrhonism for a type of skepticism strongly reminiscent of Fort's). Clark describes Fort's writing style as a "distinctive blend of mocking humor, penetrating insight, and calculated outrageousness".

    Writer Colin Wilson describes Fort as "a patron of cranks", and also argues that running through Fort's work is "the feeling that no matter how honest scientists think they are, they are still influenced by various unconscious assumptions that prevent them from attaining true objectivity. Expressed in a sentence, Fort's principle goes something like this: People with a psychological need to believe in marvels are no more prejudiced and gullible than people with a psychological need not to believe in marvels."

    Fort's books sold well, and remain in print. Today, the term Fortean or Forteana is used to describe various anomalous phenomena. Check out Fortean Times.

    Some Quotations
    • "Now there are so many scientists who believe in dowsing, that the suspicion comes to me that it may be only a myth after all".
    • "One measures a circle, beginning anywhere".
    • "My own notion is that it is very unsportsmanlike to ever mention fraud. Accept anything. Then explain it your way".
    • "But my liveliest interest is not so much in things, as in relations of things. I have spent much time thinking about the alleged pseudo-relations that are called coincidences. What if some of them should not be coincidence?"
    • "If there is a universal mind, must it be sane?" (Often attributed to Fort, but not found in his books or letters)
    • The fittest survive.
    What is meant by the fittest?
    Not the strongest; not the cleverest--
    Weakness and stupidity everywhere survive.
    There is no way of determining fitness except in that a thing does survive.
    "Fitness," then, is only another name for "survival."
    That survivors survive.

    Chinese Etymology can help with your Sigil Magick

    Check out these fascinating posts: The Colors of Language: Chinese Etymologies, thanks to TechnOccult who has a great post up on Sigil Magick. An excerpt: "While I am not too familiar with the works of Michael Bertiaux, I was led to believe him and the Cult of the Black Snake (I think that was their name) were constructing ever larger sigils out of carefully constructed smaller ones. Careful consideration may be placed unto the original sigils, to be wed together on a dreamscape of a sort by the members of the Cult."

    Those are called hypersigils and are some of the most fascinating things relating to consciousness I've come across, Grant Morrison's comic book series The Invisibles is one giant hypersigil. There are two great vids, the coolest lecture you've ever seen and an interview with him, on the right hand side here or on the page.

    Secret Worlds: The Universe Within

    View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

    Oh Synchronicitiy! I was listening to Bruce Damer and saw the Solar System just at the time Bruce said the words Solar System.

    Sinister Quotes

    By sinister, we mean the "left hand path".

    "The morality of rules and regulations based on rewards and punishments, even when these are as intangible as the pain of guilt and the pleasure of self- respect, has no relation to free action. It is a way of ruling slaves by benevolent exploitation of their illusions, and, however far pursued, can never lead to freedom."
    - Alan Watts

    "They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those
    who dream only by night."
    - Edgar Allan Poe

    "Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I've got to hold up for a moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."

    "All great truths begin as blasphemies."

    I'm not into Conspiracy Rant

    Don't worry folks, this is just a rant. If you want to ignore this conspiracy related material too you can just click the Consciousness label and it will all go away ;p

    I'm getting a lot of comments from people who are into consciousness and apparently get a tummy ache everytime I they see all this nasty conspiracy stuff. Like ewwww new information, keep it out of my comfort zone!
    And that's exactly what's happening, people don't like icky information they're not used to in their belief system, it's a 2nd circuit emotional response to 3rd circuit reasonable information.
    I don't post this stuff to make you believe conspiracy related material, it's about exploring ideas. And I'm not trying to push anything but I just had to react on all these comments, you can just ignore these posts btw like the opener of the article says. But let me just clarify again why I post this stuff. I don't like the paranoia & fear mongering in conspiracy either, I'm not trying to scare you or tell you how the future is going to be, your future is yours to create, but I want to be informed on how organized ethically questionable people are creating their future (and ours along with it). You can get beyond the fear mongering and paranoia with your own discernment, just as you do when watching the mainstream media. There's an exercise I do, whenever I feel resistance to encountered information, I transcend it where I previously would have ignored it. That way I can learn more, my multi-model approach of the universe increases. The bigger your map is, the more associations you can make, the more intelligent you are.

    You think all people who are into conspiracy actively worry about occult societies, or aliens, or the bankers, or whatever? - maybe we just wanna know what's going on, maybe everything is connected as all spiritual teachings say?

    So why would one even bother with taking the red pill? Or maybe even start with a purple one :p Do you seriously still 'believe' in a free press and objective media? In the US the leading puppet candidates Obama & Hillary voted in all Bush's bullshit but people 'believe' in change. Are you seriously gonna tell me the function of the idiot box and 'education' is to enlighten you? Your body is being affected by unhealthy drinks, food, air and technology the world offers today. Do you think that doesn't have to do with your consciousness or your chakras? :p

    And about everything being connected more specifically:
    Do you think science and the authorities have been 'scientific' in their handling of consciousness research? What about authorities & multinational companies using magickal sigils as symbols? And yes let's go there: Do you realize that the famous lizzies & greys - wether extradimensional, extraterrestrial and/or mental projection - can be found in conspiracy theory AND on entheogenic trips and OBEs? How you could ignore such fascinating material is beyond me. But oh! What will people say? :p

    Here's a fun comment I saw on another blog referring to mine:
    "I prefer not to buy into conspiracies either. The more one resists a thing, the more it pushes back in opposition, and thus will refuse to budge or change."
    Wanna tell it to the Jews in WW2? All this thought creates reality stuff is laughable when it comes to politics. We all co-create reality, if some organized people wanna get something done they will regardless of your view on it. Because they're combining thoughts with actions. And actions will always speak louder than words. You may find this holocaust reference offensive, of course you do, you've been conditioned to, but it's the most used rebuttal of thinking happy thoughts will make all the bad experience go away - you might have to consider also that there are FEMA civilian inmate labor camps ready in the US for "fifth-column citizens" (the non-sleepwalking ones), you can freely read it on the official military website. Bush now has the power to declare martial law and suspend the elections in case of another (self-made) emergency. How much liberties do they have to take from you, after you just freaking got them a few decades earlier, before you act? Like M. Badnarik says, are you gonna wait to protest when you're on the train? Think you're going on a vacation? Where do you draw the line? You can pretend there's no killing & bullshit in your fluffy bunny forest of make-belief but that doesn't make it so.

    "If you ever hear a fellow student say, I'm not turned on politics, give that student a history book, because if you don't turn on politics, down to the air you breathe, the water you drink, the racial profiling you detest, the health insurance many people don't have, and on and on. If you don't turn on politics, politics will turn on you in very disagreeable ways."
    Ralph Nader

    This is not just about conspiracy, it's about politics. Conspiracy is a demonized word, of course let's ignore again that that's media conditioning too because that only happens to other people.
    And you know what, I'm gonna get ridiculous on your ass. Does society run any smoother when the majority of people are barely getting by at the end of the month? How about the situation of Africa, Asia and South America, do you realize how much the west is responsible? How about the homeless and poor in your own country? How about army veterans who get nothing after risking their lives for their country? How about people feeling more sorry for a puppy getting thrown off a cliff than Iraqi humans dying? Does it make you feel happy that people who smoke joints can get a fucking hand shoved up their ass and can go to jail smoking plants that grow naturally on our planet in some countries? Is it reasonable that CEO's make 600 fucking times more than a clerk? Isn't it totally insane that when we are late to pay the authorities and companies we get fined or jailed, but when we have to wait for our money we can be happy if we even receive it? Is it normal that people who start a business have to keep two books so they don't go bankrupt in a few months? Are you telling me you're ok with the fact that the mob needs to be payed off in so many places in the world if you want to stay alive? Is it easy to ignore that both 9/11 and 7/7 happened BOTH on days of terrorist drills? And to get more serious, have you met an aristocratic sex slave? Because all these things I have witnessed personally and it's hard to keep your composure even thinking about the last one. They're totally dehumanized. Even their children are. I'm sick of all this fucking bullshit, I have been since I was in high school and I don't care what the fluffy bunny philosophy people say, this stuff is important! You know who accomplished a lot, the youngsters out in the streets in the sixties and seventies, they weren't just thinking it, they were doing it. There's more to the consensus reality illusion and it's not about resisting it, it's about knowing it and moving from there to create a new vision. Thanks for your attention.

    Tool - Third Eye Revisited

    Tool - Third Eye Revisited

    Stargate Synchromysticism

    In the earlier posted David Wilcock vid, he draws a lot of synchromystic parallels from the Stargate SG1 series. Check the vid for his talk about timetravel and the technology emulating the third eye's workings. (Also related are the movies Contact and others, which get mentioned in the vid)

    In latest episode of Stargate Atlantis 'The Last Man' (watch on YouTube here), which is amazing compared to the rest of the season, Colonel John Sheppard is sent 48.000 years into the future to Atlantis which is now partly buried under a desert and the Sun is dying too. Through a Hologram of physicist Rodney McKay he learns that due to a glitch of light bending he was not only sent through space but also through time.

    Michael, a wraith alien the Humans in Atlantis experimented on to get him to become human again, rebelled - because he was outcast from his wraith and found no place with the humans either - and created his own form of wraith-human hybrids to take over the universe. He succeeded in the timeline where Sheppard disappeared. Now thanks to McKay's hologram Sheppard gets sent back into time to fix what went wrong. Amazing synchronistic connections between reality & fiction and the timing of it all is what makes synchromysticism so darn interesting! People who think it's all just silly are depriving themselves of worthy information & entertainment :p

    Warning: The next Generation might just be the biggest Pile of Idiots in U.S. History

    By Mark Morford

    I have this ongoing discussion with a longtime reader who also just so happens to be a longtime Oakland high school teacher, a wonderful guy who's seen generations of teens come and generations go and who has a delightful poetic sensibility and quirky outlook on his life and his family and his beloved teaching career.

    And he often writes to me in response to something I might've written about the youth of today, anything where I comment on the various nefarious factors shaping their minds and their perspectives and whether or not, say, EMFs and junk food and cell phones are melting their brains and what can be done and just how bad it might all be.

    His response: It is not bad at all. It's absolutely horrifying.

    My friend often summarizes for me what he sees, firsthand, every day and every month, year in and year out, in his classroom. He speaks not merely of the sad decline in overall intellectual acumen among students over the years, not merely of the astonishing spread of lazy slackerhood, or the fact that cell phones and iPods and excess TV exposure are, absolutely and without reservation, short-circuiting the minds of the upcoming generations. Of this, he says, there is zero doubt.
    As for the rest, well, the dystopian evidence seems overwhelming indeed, to the point where it might be no stretch at all to say the biggest threat facing America is perhaps not global warming, not perpetual warmongering, not garbage food or low-level radiation or way too much Lindsay Lohan, but a populace far too ignorant to know how to properly manage any of it, much less change it all for the better.

    What, too fatalistic? Don't worry. Soon enough, no one will know what the word even means.

    Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins announced this week that documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy were found in a little-known vault in his office. He said his intention was to release them to the public. The documents were compiled by Henry Wade, the district attorney at the time of the assassination. Mr. Wade and his successors never made them public.

    Below is one, large chunk of the documents. In the coming days, will share more of them for your review.

    Ishtar - O Julissi Na Jalini

    This is the Belgian (I'm from Belgium) entry for Eurosong 2008. I'm glad cause all the other entries were retarded commercial bs like so many Eurosong entries which has made the event such a laughing stock. The group Ishtar (Babylonian goddess of fertility, love, and war) performs traditional European folk songs and this song is entirely in a non-existant, made up language (I guess that makes it exist now :p). It's a happy song! If you're gonna go Eurosong why not go silly all the way right?! :p

    Samadhi Tank - Origins - John C. Lilly MD

    The inventor John C. Lilly MD

    In the isolation tank, Dr. Lilly found that he could relax his mind and dream, but his consciousness was always there, ready to take charge. He could choose to relax and let things happen, in which case the images would free-associate, moving as if randomly from one to the next. Or he could choose to program what would happen, in a process similar to lucid dreaming, but with an even greater degree of control. He could invent a scenario ahead of time with his consciousness fully focused, and then relax and let his brain carry out the program.

    Go with your gut – intuition is more than just a hunch

    Most of us experience ‘gut feelings’ we can’t explain, such as instantly loving – or hating – a new property when we’re househunting or the snap judgements we make on meeting new people. Now researchers at Leeds say these feelings – or intuitions – are real and we should take our hunches seriously.

    According to a team led by Professor Gerard Hodgkinson of the Centre for Organisational Strategy, Learning and Change at Leeds University Business School, intuition is the result of the way our brains store, process and retrieve information on a subconscious level and so is a real psychological phenomenon which needs further study to help us harness its potential.

    Google and the Myceliation of Consciousness, expanded

    From the (no longer, for a second) inactive (thanks to this :p ...) The Faithful Scribe blog
    Think of the psychedelics as Google’s biggest trade secret. From this perspective, the War on Drugs is a feature, not a bug. It keeps the straight CEOs woefully uninitiated and misinformed, making their moves based on old slow mind-software (natural language, logic, rational analysis) when the real world is moving far too fast and complexly to rely on these tools alone. Corporate and government drug-testing steers away the cognitively enhanced creatives from private and public service. Meanwhile the phreaks employ the cognitive catalysts, de-condition their thinking periodically and come up with “12 Waddington runnel jumpers” This heady concept is explicated in podcasts 65 and 66 of the Psychedelic Salon—from the McKenna, Abraham, Sheldrake trialogues. The runnel jumpers are the really big connectivity ideas arrived at wholly outside the linear steps of argument. These are the gestalt-perceiving, asterism-forming aha’s! that connect the dots and light up the sky with a new archetypal pattern. The psychedelics are ancient methods of knowledge acquisition, newly deployed. The original search engines, you might say. Taxonomies and to-do lists are way way way down the line.

    Google is the first psychedelically informed superpower to shape the noosphere and NASDAQ. I don't mean that Googlers (necessarily) are all seasoned psychonauts, or (necessarily) take 4:20 breaks on-campus, or are well represented (necessarily) at Burning Man. Nor am I saying that psychedelics “caused” Google, any more than a Stanford education did. I do mean that the core mission comes right out of the psychedelic atlas: a vision of super-connectivity and super-conductivity which is a hallmark of the psychedelic landscape.

    A History of Evil

    A History of Evil
    From the vid info: Animated Documentary-Mockumentary about Evil in western civilization from Ancient Greece to present day. This video is intended to show what people have believed in and pointed to as evil throughout history. It was meant to get you to think about what evil really is. It is meant to show that when we get too obsessed with "evil" we might end up taking part in it ourselves. One has to separate evil and human cruelty. Human cruelty is people not being nice to one another. Evil is something else, it is something we have created, a word and a concept for things that are not acceptable. It is a label for things that we do not understand and dont want to understand. But is evil really ever a complete explanation for anything? A lot of bad deeds has been done in the name of good. The people that did them meant good, are they evil? (Like the Inquisition? I wouldn't call 'em good, or intelligent :p)

    Mandatory disclaimer for the average genius... :p
    This video is not meant to:
    -blame wester culture and people for all the “evil” in the world. I’m european, and thought that I better stick to my own history.
    -blame religion for all the evil in the world.
    -claim that God is dead. (It is simply a reference to the philosopher Nietzsche, look him up.)
    -offend anyone, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
    -claim that Elvis was evil.
    -be an exact and complete account of the actual events that has taken place throughout history.

    Until we take it to the Streets again we are Invisible & Meaningless

    I found this on a social networking site, link to official poster isn't working so sorry! I'm ironically spreading this on the internets. I think there's a lot of truth in this, I was recently inspired by an Abbie Hoffman interview on his prankster activism and would like to do more that kinda stuff, spread memes where people least expect it and make them think. And while we're doing that, we're outside :p Either way, sitting by and doing nothing is not an option. And while we're in the information age, I guess the computer is a helpful tool for acquiring & spreading information, but preaching to the choir helps nobody:

    The move towards isolationism and sluths of non activity - the computer generation?

    Get Off The Internet

    There are two classes of people in government and the media. They are either complicit or brainwashed...or both. Now, here is a big shock for you!
    The internet is part of the "media". It's an inter-active boob tube.

    You Tube

    People like us were much more active and effective when we had to actually go out and fight for peace 40 years ago. We could not and would not be ignored or intimidated. Now, those of us who are still "Passionate for Peace" and "Fighting for Freedom" bulletin and blog for "The Revolution" but we are all just "preaching to the choir" and no one can see us but ourselves.

    Like with Ron Paul... we all thought we were making a difference by burning up the web for him. When he ran for President back in 1988, he got 8 percent of the vote without the internet. With it, he got 5 percent and never made it to election day.


    We have a false and inbred view of our power to change things now because we assume that since we all agree here, people everywhere are thinking the same as us.

    John McCain

    The fact that an evil little CFR troll like McCain is now unopposed for the Republican nomination while the straw dogs Clinton and Obama divide the democrats right down the middle should tell you something. Once again, the corporate military powers that be have managed to leave us with only their "candidates" to "vote" for again and no matter who "wins", we will stay at war forever with vanishing civil liberties and protections in order to "quell domestic dissent" and "fight terror". Until we all decide to take it to the streets again, we are invisible and meaningless.


    The internet may just be part of their plan to keep us inside and "manageable" the same way that TV has for the last 30 years. If we really were a threat, they could and would unplug the internet faster than you can say "9/11 Was An Inside Job!".


    After 6 years of waving one smoking 9/11 gun after another for all to see all across the world wide web, have you noticed that the government and media are laughing themselves silly at us... and not one person who was really responsible has been investigated, charged, prosecuted or punished?


    Warnings about chemtrails, Neo-Fascism, the deconstruction of the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, false flag attacks, the NAU, poison vaccines, fluoride in our water, chemicals in our food, 800 plus domestic detention FEMA/HS camps, depleted uranium munitions, the Federal Reserve and the dying economy, "Global Warming"(scam), fixed and controlled elections, mainstream media dis-info, etc etc abound and no one outside of us "tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorists" has a clue or gives a shit. Check out the Google/YouTube "Top 100" or the number of porn sites on the web and you will have a fuller grasp of what the internet is really designed to keep us indoors, isolated, distracted or under the illusion that we still have "Free Speech" and can make a difference from our keyboards.


    After a million bulletins, blogs and messages to save the world and stop the madness, I just ain't buying it anymore. We've been had... again! The war mongering "defense contracting" dog bombers and puppy tossers won and we finished a distant second looking like one of those kids from the "Special Olympics", all smiling and goofy!

    special olympics

    added: D'you know why? Check nearly any forum or internet discussion, people's BS (belief systems) will make them ignore everything that supports the opponents points, and will search for whatever confirms his/hers. Making for a retarded read.

    Mayor Resigns, Claims Abduction By Satan Worshippers

    (This story is from last November but hey)
    CENTERTON, Ark. -- The mayor of an Arkansas town resigned on Wednesday, claiming he was abducted and brainwashed by Satan worshippers nearly three decades ago. (click here for full story and video)

    Centerton Mayor Ken Williams said he has been living under an assumed name for nearly 30 years. He had been mayor since 2001.

    Williams told authorities he was born Don LaRose and that in the mid-1970s, he was a preacher in Indiana. He said he was abducted and brainwashed into forgetting all about his life as Don LaRose.

    It was a double-life he had never acknowledged, Williams said, because he didn't even realize it existed until he had recently taken a truth-serum injection.

    As Williams regained his memory, he said, he realized that he had a wife and two kids but that he had decided to leave and take on a new identity to protect them.

    "I had no choice. The choice was to watch my family killed before my eyes or go with these people, and I chose instead to run," Williams said.

    He wouldn't explain from who he was running, saying only that he had been brainwashed.

    "I had multiple shock treatments," Williams said. "It took five years to get my memory back."

    Williams said he took his current identity in 1980 when he moved to Centerton. His full name -- Bruce Kent Williams -- was taken from a man who died in a car crash back in 1958, he said.

    2005 Paranormal Experimental Evidence

    John Lilly, Ketamine and The Entities From ECCO

    If you liked this Philip K. Dick article, this is just up your alley.
    by Adam Gorightly for

    In the early 70's, John Lilly was introduced to the drug Ketamine by Dr. Craig Enright in the hopes of alleviating the pain associated with Lilly's chronic migraine headaches, which he had been suffering like clockwork — every 18 hours — for most of his often-adventurous life.

    Lilly, at the time, was at Esalen Institute conducting seminars when one of these massive migraines hit him. In situations such as these, Lilly withdrew into privacy, to suffer alone through the many endless hours of severe discomfort. It was at this time that Enright suggested to Lilly that he enter into the Esalen isolation tank and receive an injection of Ketamine, in the prospect that it would in some way cure him of his affliction. Lilly in the past had tried a similar experiment with LSD, but it proved unsuccessful, and the terrible headaches persisted. In the earlier LSD-assisted experiment, Lilly attempted to reprogram his human bio-computer in such a way as to eliminate the faulty circuits that were causing him such distress. The experiment failed, but now once again Lilly the Scientist was searching for an answer and a cure to his malignant malady.

    As Lilly floated in the isolation tank fluid, Enright injected him with 35 milligrams of Ketamine (K). Within a few minutes, Lilly could actually visualize the migraine pain moving out of his skull, to a point levitated there in apperceived space, Lilly felt no pain whatsoever for some twenty minutes, until it once again reentered his head. When Lilly began moaning and groaning in his water-filled sanctum of pain, Enright injected him with another 70 milligrams. This time Lilly felt the pain moving farther away, twelve feet this time. Thirty minutes later the migraine lightning bolt of pain came rushing back, lodging itself once again into Dr. Lilly's head. Enright reloaded his syringe and shot the good doctor up with 150 milligrams. This time when the pain vacated Lilly's head it kept on going and didn't come back; clear over the horizon, never to be seen again. An hour later, after the K wore off, Lilly climbed out of the tank, a new man.

    A month later, when the regularly occuring migraine failed to rear its aching head, Lilly was amazed. During his psychedelic research of the early Sixty's, Lilly was one of the early pioneers in charting the inner landscapes of the human brain with LSD inside his self-developed isolation tank. Within those dark, still waters of the soul, Lilly ingested heroic doses of acid and delved deep into his mind to imprint and re-program his mental circuits toward enlightenment and self-realization. But where LSD had failed in defeating the migraine problem, Ketamine had now apparently succeeded.

    A week later when Doctor's Enright and Lilly met at the Esalen isolation tank, they agreed to join forces and conduct a joint research into the effects of Ketamine as a possible programming agent. The movie Altered States was based on one of their initial experiments. On this memorable occasion, Enright injected himself with a measured dose of K and — with Lilly observing — began a strange odyssey into the primal/archetype regions of his psyche. Unbeknownst to Dr. Lilly, Enright had reprogrammed himself "to return to the prehominid origins of man." Enright, in this programmed "altered state", displayed all the typical features, movements and sounds of an Ape Man; hopping around in a crouching position, grunting, growling, ranting and howling, gesticulating and shaking frantically his arms. While all of this high weirdness was going on, Lilly assumed that Enright was having some sort of seizure. Though in close proximity with each other throughout the entire experience, the separate realities they were experiencing were of entirely different natures. Enright's reality consisted of a confrontation with a leopard, which he drove away with all his arms flailing, grunting and wild gesticulations. Finally Enright climbed up into a tree (that Lilly couldn't see) and stared down at his friend and colleague from the branches above.

    From this experiment, Enright and Lilly drew three important conclusions: "First, one's internal reality could differ radically from the external reality in which one was participating, even with regard to prominent features of the physical environment. Second, the person might remain active physically in the external environment, in a manner not responding closely to one's internal experience of this activity. And third, one could remain totally oblivious to this disparity." Given these conditions, Lilly and Enright agreed that it would be a good idea at all times to have a "safety man" monitoring the experiments; to observe the proceedings and insure that those under K's influence could do no physical harm to themselves and others. With both men being trained physicians the obvious choice to fill these roles were themselves, alternately switching positions as "safety man" and "explorer".

    One determining factor in Lilly's decision to continue experimenting with K was its measurability. Unlike other programming agents he had used in the past, K's effects were extremely predictable, in that you could determine exacting levels of dosage to correspond with the desired effect one wished to experience; whereas other mind expansion agents such as LSD and psilocybin are often more unpredictable in regards to the facilitation of desired preprogramming. This brings to mind a possible correlation between Ketamine and DMT, where each of these drugs — administered at certain exacting dosages — apparently summon forth, to the percipient involved, extraterrestrial or other-dimensional entities. High doses of psilocybin have effected this response in some users — Terrence McKenna, among others — who have communicated telepathically with alien intelligences under the mushroom's otherworldly aegis. But psilocybin's effects are quirky. Perhaps this is why the measurability — and predictability — of K so appealed to Dr. Lilly. In this manner the scientific method could be followed to achieve the desired mind-bending results.

    In later experiments, Lilly failed to heed his own advice, becoming so enraptured in his Ketamine exploration that he would forego the earlier agreed upon "safety man" and started working "without a net." This led to an almost fatal consequence when one sunny day, under the influence of K, Lilly climbed into his hot tube. When he realized the temperature was too hot, Lilly futilely attempted to climb out, but in so doing his muscles lost their strength and he collapsed into bubbling currents. Lilly was totally conscious at this point, but due to the effects of K, he was unaware of the external reality of his drowning body. He was conscious only of his internal world. As fate would have it, a friend of Lilly's, Phil Halecki — who found himself driven by a sudden sense of urgency — decided at this time to phone Dr. Lilly. Lilly's wife Toni fielded the phone call and, at Halecki's insistence, went to summon John, only to find him lying face down in the water, breathless and blue. Fortunately, Toni was able to revive her husband using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, a technique she had learned only a few days earlier from an article in The National Enquirer.

    Nonetheless, this close brush with the grim reaper's scythe didn't deter Lilly from further solo flights on K; it only reaffirmed his deeply held conviction that his life was being watched over by higher powers of an extraterrestrial origin. Lilly referred to this network of sublime entities as ECCO, an acronym for "Earth Coincidence Control Office." Lilly was positive that all of these fortuitous coincidences in his life (such as Halecki's life-saving phone call) had been arranged by higher forces; and that whatever unfortunate folly fell into his path along the road to knowledge, ECCO would be there to guide him safely through the tunnel to the light.

    But ECCO was not there only to guide Lilly unfettered through his mind-bending research; these extraterrestrial benefactors were also there to test Lilly, to help him overcome his deepest darkest fears with psychic-shock therapy. One evening after a kick-ass shot of K, Lilly sat watching TV when an alien representative of ECCO appeared and — with some advanced form of psychic surgery — bloodlessly removed John's penis, nonchalantly handing it over to him. "They've cut off my penis," Dr. Lilly exclaimed. His wife Toni came to the rescue and pointed out to John that his penis was still intact. Upon closer examination of his male member, Lilly saw that the ET's had replaced his normal human penis with a mechanical version that could become voluntary erect when he wanted it to. An hour later, after the effects of the K wore off, John Lilly found his normal human penis in place of the mechanical one, exactly where it had always been.

    Later on, as the frequency of his use on K increased, Dr. Lilly began having contact with another alien intelligence agency, which he called (SSI), short for Solid State Intelligence. SSI was a supercomputer-like entity, much in the same techno-mystical vein as Philip K. Dick's VALIS. But unlike VALIS, SSI was of a malevolent nature, at odds with ECCO. SSI's apparent goal was to conquer and dominate all biological life forms on Earth. To combat SSI, ECCO enlisted Lilly in this archetypal battle of good against evil, charging him with the mission of alerting the world at large to these solid state beings of evil intent. To further confirm the dual existences of these two opposing alien intelligence networks, Lilly was given a sign, and message, in the autumn of 1974. Flying into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), Dr. Lilly saw the comet Kahoutek out of the southern sky. Momentarily the comet grew brighter. At this point a message was laser-beamed into Lilly's mind, which said: "We are Solid State Intelligence and we are going to demonstrate our power by shutting down all solid state equipment to LAX."

    Dr. Lilly shared his foreboding message with his wife Toni, who was seated next to him. A few minutes later, the pilot instructed the passengers that they were being diverted to Burbank due to a plane that had crash-landed near the runway and had knocked down power lines, causing a power failure at the airport.

    As his haphazard use of K intensified, so did the warnings of imminent dangers regarding the survival of mankind, provided by ECCO via 3D Technicolor images beamed into Lilly's mind. These visions were of an apocalyptic nature; scenes of nuclear annihilation seen from an alien's eye view in outer space. The world powers needed to be alerted of this impending tragedy immediately to enable them to avert widespread global devastation, ECCO instructed, or it would be too late. I find it interesting that ECCO's message to Dr. Lilly was much the same as those delivered to the early saucer contactees: our planet was on a collision course toward destruction; all atomic weapons must be dismantled if our planet was ever going to have a chance of surviving in the future. The only difference was that the enemy was us, not "them." Nevertheless, rampant technological progress was to blame for the sorry state of the planet, regardless if it was being facilitated by alien intelligences, or humans.

    After three weeks of hourly K injections, Lilly decided that he would travel to the east coast to warn political leaders and members of the media of the threat posed by SSI. In New York, he phoned the White House to warn then President Gerald Ford about "a danger to the human race involving atomic energy and computers." A White House aide fielded the call and, although quite aware, of Dr. Lilly's impressive credentials, was not convinced of the urgency of the matter, and informed him that the President was unavailable.

    A young intern who had been assigned to Lilly during this time figured the good doctor had finally flipped his high intelligent lid and attempted to have Lilly committed to a psychiatric hospital. Once again ECCO intervened. Lilly had friends in many high places one of which was the director of this hospital, who saw to it that his old friend was released in short order. When the intrepid intern attempted to commit Lilly to another psychiatric hospital, the same scenario unfolded, and Lilly was once again released. The young intern could only shake his frustrated head in disbelief.

    Still following the lead of ECCO, Dr. Lilly continued his ever-escalating injections of K in order to remain in contact with the "space brothers". Soon, though, his sources started to dry up due to concerns by his connections that Lilly had gone too far of the deep end. Consequently this led Lilly in search of other long acting chemicals that would provide him with the same effects as K, but for a greater duration of time. During the experimental trial of another drug of similar nature to K, Dr. Lilly received a phone call from his wife Toni requesting that he bring her spare set of car keys, because she had locked her others in her car. Since she was simply down the road a bit, John jumped on his ten-speed and proceeded to peddle down the road to make the delivery.

    When Dr. Lilly decided to ride his ten-speed bike down the road to meet his wife, the drug had not yet taken full effect. But midway through his trip, Lilly was zapped by its intoxicating magic and instantly felt quite wonderful with the wind blowing deliciously through his hair; it was as if he'd taken a trip down memory lane to the days of his free wheeling youth. Unfortunately, this flashbackfull sense of euphoria came screeching to a disastrous halt when the bike chain suddenly jammed, and he was catapulted onto the harsh reality of the concrete pavement, puncturing a lung, breaking several ribs, and suffering cranial contusions. This bicycle crash resulted in several days of hospitalization, where Dr. Lilly was once again visited by the otherworldly representatives from ECCO, who told him he had a choice: He could go away with them "for good" or remain on the planet, mend his body and concentrate on more worldly affairs. The good doctor wisely chose the latter. With this decision came a turning point in his life, and a conscious effort to focus his remaining years not only on more earthly matters — as opposed to the whims and wishes of ECCO — but to dedicate the rest of his life to his wife, Toni, and their soul mate journey together through physical time and space.

    Many paranormal parallels can be drawn from the experience of John Lilly, one such being the so-called Near Death Experience (NDE), where Guides, as he called them (the two representatives from ECCO) appeared to Lilly much as figurative angels bathed in light do to others who have experienced NDE. Often, as the seemingly near dead hover before this subjective light, they are offered a choice much similar to the one given Dr. Lilly by his otherworldly benefactors from Earth Coincidence Control Center. Should I stay or should I go?

    Not long after this second brush with death Dr. Lilly's close friend and Ketamine research partner, Graig Enright, was involved in a head on collision in the fog on coast Highway One. As Enright lay upon his death bed, he was visited by Dr. Lilly, who took Enrights hand in his, and made the following statement: "It's not so bad to die, Craig. I've been to the brink myself a few times, and I've seen over the edge. The Beings have told me on several occasions that I was free to go with them, but I decided to stay here and continue my work in this vehicle that everyone calls John Lilly; they showed me that I am one of them. 'You are one of us'. I know that you know this because we've been there together. Whatever you do, Craig, I love you." On the very next morning, Dr. Graig Enright shed his mortal coil.

    Thus ends another chapter in Dr. Lilly's often adventurous life.

    Human Intelligence over Artifical Stupidity!

    The Terminator series is stockful of great symbolism. In the future, artificial intelligence is so advanced it sees the human species as obsolete. The resistance of humans is losing the fight and John Connor, the resistance leader, sends an advanced terminator model back in time to help in his fight to stop the war from beginning by halting A.I. breakthroughs.

    John Connor is a hacker, a hacker is not someone who breaks into computer networks. A hacker is someone who learns a system so well he can play with it. Mystics, are reality hackers. John, his mother and Derek Reese (also sent back from the future) have to work with, but not necessarily trust, the terminator robot they sent to help themselves from the future too. This robot could turn against them at anytime, when her 'programming acts up'.

    It also symbolizes our enemy is the robot, the droid within, which overcomes us in this story and wreaks havoc on our planet and species. Our programmed & conditioned automaton responses divide us and keep us from the truth. We are all programmed and conditioned by our 'education', the mainstream media, government and religious authorities, our belief systems symbolize the robot within us. What the Terminator story resonates is: dedroidify
    Derek Reese: I didn't know Sayles was tracking her, you gottta believe me.
    Sarah Connor: I don't have to believe anything. In fact, I don't.

    Sarah Connor: So much danger in this world is hidden behind masks, we tell our children stories of good and evil, while knowing it's not that simple. True evil doesn't give us time to fight, or to be afraid (don't agree with this phrase though :p, far from it). We keep our heads down never bothering to look behind the masks, and in doing so, we resign ourselves to terrible faiths we can never see coming.
