xx The last Psychonauts
« Thread started on: Nov 13th, 2015, 8:19pm »

While perusing the net on a subject in another thread..I ran across the website of John lash who had some interesting topics pertaining to the UFO Mythos..and by Mythos I dont mean fake..and the role of LSD the CIA..This is a partial excerpt from his historical timeline
Hes appeared on C2c Several times..

November 3, 1957 Wilhelm Reich died in a Federal penitentary where he had been imprisoned by the US government on charges of fraud and medical mispractice relating to the use of the orgone box. The year before he died, a huge number of his books were burned by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) in a blatant public display of punishing heresy. This act recalls the inquisitional fury of the Witch Trials, continuing today in what has been called the Pharmacratic Inquisition, defined on deoxy.org:

The Christian persecution of archaic religions based on sacramental ingestion of entheogenic plants and the consequent personal access to ecstatic states; whose first great victory was the destruction of the Eleusinian Mysteries at the end of the fourth century; which then reached a gruesome climax in the persecution of witches in the Middle Ages; and which continues in today's Pharmacratic State in the guise of a public health "War on Drugs."

The term was introduced by Jonathan Ott in Ayahuasca Analogues, 1994, on the G2-G3 cusp: "May the Entheogenic Reformation prevail over the Pharmacratic Inquisition, leading to the spiritual rebirth of humankind at Our Lady Ga's breasts, from which may ever copiously flow the amrta, the ambrosia, the ayahuasca of eternal life!"

1957 "Contact with Space" Reich's last publication describes his research on UFOs at his private estate, Orgonon, located near Rangely, Maine. For an update on Reich's revolutionary work with UFOs, see the 1-hour film of Peter Robbins, "Orgone Energy, Wilhelm Reich and UFOs"from the 15th Annual International UFO Congress Convention & Film Festival, in 2006.

1958 At the advanced age of 83, Carl Jung published a book on UFOs: Flying Saucers: A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies. Jung's views will later by cited by leading G2 psychonaut Terence McKenna as essential to a holistic and planetary view for the survival of humanity.

1959 The CIA and related agencies were purchasing one million doses of Sandoz LSD weekly, and stockpiling it. (Eschohotado, 100)

1960 First CIA director Read Admiral Hillenkoetter told a congressional commitee that "the public has a right to know" about the ET/UFO phenomenon, but the cloak of secrecy was thickened, and cover-up tactics became increasingly Byzantine throughout this decade. Some theorists believe that covert government experiments with psychoactive compounds, applied to the public and even against the public health, were in some cases disguised as ET scares and scams. This analysis fits the interpretation of Jacques Vallee (b. 1939), who began investigating UFOs in the early 1960s. Vallee concluded that the ET/UFO phenomenon, no matter what its actual nature and origin, acts as a "spiritual control system" that psychologically manipulates all those who get involved in it, for better or worse. This view comes close to the Gnostic theory of alien intrusion on the origin and effects of non-human inorganic species called Archons. It might be called the Trickster Theory of alien intrusion. If there is any truth in this theory, careful and disciplined practice with the visionary states induced by psychoactive plants may be the best way we have to understand and master the alien enigma.

Mid 1960s Project MK-ULTRA, dedicated to research with mind-altering substances for behavior modification and Manchurian candidates, gradually wound down, having been unsuccessful with LSD because it proved too unpredicable and tended to instill benign emotions in the subjects. One of the psychiatrists funded by MK-ULTRA, Dr. H. Abramson, concluded that the main effect of LSD is "essentially a joyous disturbance of the ego function," which made it totally useless for governmental purposes!

I962 In Island, his last novel, premier psychonaut and intellectual guru Aldous Huxley described a utopian society in Oceania where a sacred plant potion is the established tool for enlightenment or moksha. His spiritual journey of three decades since writing Brave New World, and his deep immersian in Asian philosophy, inspired Huxley to envision a benign society along Buddhist lines, in which "moksha medicine" (psychedelics) and Tantric sex were customary. His genius was broad enough to see both extremes of human potential, enslavement and liberation.

1962 The Joyous Cosmology by Alan Watts was, and still is, perhaps the most articulate rendering ever written of a visionary trance induced by lab-produced psychedelics. In addition to lucid passages of description, Watts interjects here and there a snippet of transcendent wisdom, always in his deft, incomparable style:

The conscious ego doesn't know that it is something which that divine organ, the body, is only pretending to be.

There is simply no problem of life: it is completely purposeless play exuberance which is its own end.

We have lost touch with our original identity, which is not the system of images but the great self-moving gesture of this as yet unremembered moment.

November 1963 In one month three decisive events occurred, two of them on the same day:

In 1963 Harvard University dismissed Timoty Leary and Ricard Alpert after complaints from parents of students involved in experimenting with LSD. They moved to upstate New York, taking over a large mansion in Millbrook, and set up the Castilia Institute where they continued to do research with the mind-altering drug. In November Millbrook was raided (one of several instances) by FBI agents led by G. Gordon Liddy, a CIA thug later convicted of the Watergate break-in.

November 23 John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. On the same day, leading G1 psychonaut Aldous Huxley died, assisted on the definitive journey by a subcutaneous dose of LSD administered by his wife, Laura Archer. In Flashbacks, Leary claims that the day after JFK was murdered he received a phone call from Mary Pinchot Meyer, who had been a mistress of the slain President for over two years. Leary says that she told him: "They couldn't control him [JFK] any more. He was changing too fast. He was learning too much... They'll cover everything up. I gotta come see you. I'm scared. I'm afraid."

JFK is known to have taken LSD. Heard today, his speech against secret societies, citing the risk of government to turn against its own people, and the need for government to be transparent and take responsibility for its errors, sends a chill up the spine in the post-911 world, and could well have been the single overriding reason for his liquidation.

October 1964 Mary Pinchot Meyer was shot dead as she walked along the Chesapeake and Ohio towpath in Georgetown. The murder had the mark of a professional hit.

1964 The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead by Richard Alpert, Timothy Leary, and Ralph Metzner. In the final year of the first generation of psychonautics, three men collaborated in an adaptation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead for use as a guide on LSD trips. Available today on line, the book is a small masterpiece that cleverly substitutes the stages of ego death typical of the LSD trip for the stages of physical death and after-death visions described in Tibetan manuals intended to be read to the dying and deceased. Instead of tracing the process of gradual disembodiment, and the dissolving of consciousness through the physical elements, covered in the Tibetan manuals, The Psychedelic Experience is a guide through progressive stages of depersonalization and loss of habitual identity, up to the point of complete ego death, followed by the dawning of the Clear Light and, as recognition of primal reality fades and falters, the mandala-like hallucinations of the Peaceful and Wrathful Dieties.

1964 Ken Kesey (1935 - 2110) and the Merry Pranksters set out across the USA, driving from California to New York in a bus with a destination plaque that read Further. As described in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe (ahead, G2).

In 1960 Kesey had signed up to be a guinea pig in a medical research program funded (little did he know) by the CIA. In the insanity ward of Stanford Hospital he was given LSD, causing him to hallucinate a primitive face that later morphed into Chief Broom, a character in his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1962). The film version released in 1975, which won Jack Nicholson the Oscar for Best Actor, did much to contribute to the popular disinformation on LSD, portraying psychonauts as reckless clowns and escapees from the nuthouse....continued
