Shadow of Nemesis 5: Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine


By Jack Heart & Orage

Phil Schneider, who looked and talked more like a bus driver, claimed he was a geological engineer charged with building Deep Underground Military Bases (DUMB’s) for the New World Order.

He had a few missing fingers that he said he lost in a 1979 subterranean firefight between aliens and Special Forces at Dulce.

According to Schneider, they had just descended down a freshly drilled shaft with the intention of reconnoitering it for the planting of explosives when they found “themselves amidst a large cavern that was full of outer-space aliens, otherwise known as large Grays. I shot two of them.

At that time, there were 30 people down there. About 40 more came down after this started, and all of them got killed. We had surprised a whole underground base of existing aliens. Later, we found out that they had been living on our planet for a long time, perhaps a million years. This could explain a lot of what is behind the theory of ancient astronauts.”[101]

Schneider’s tale came replete with allegations from the peanut gallery that the American military had been jointly sharing the DUMB with the Grays under a treaty where Grays were allowed to snatch cattle and occasionally abduct humans for genetic experiments. Some speculated that elements in the military did not appreciate this treaty. But all parties agreed, presumably even the Grays, somebody started shooting and it got messy.

There was absolutely nothing believable about either Schneider or his story, but it was promoted so relentlessly it attained the status of UFOlogical gospel. Schneider would be found dead with a piano wire wrapped around his neck in ninety-six and unfortunately, for would-be writers, the identity of his publicist died with him.

Schneider’s tale was backed up by Paul Bennewitz, a known mental patient who seems to have had the same publicist as Schneider. Bennewitz ended up ranting about aliens coming through the walls of his home to get him but while he was still coherent he, along with a Dr. Leo Sprinkle, publicized the case of Myrna Hansen. Under hypnosis Hansen claimed she and her son had been abducted by aliens and taken to a secret underground base where they witnessed cattle being mutilated and the blood drained into vats of human body parts.

Before his plug was pulled in the late Eighties, Bennewitz had been telling UFOlogists that the American government was complacent if not in collusion with the aliens. By the time Bennewitz was carted off to be rewired ‘everyone knew’ that the evil cattle mutilating and human abducting Grays, not to be confused with the friendly Disneyesque Grays Whitley Strieber was promoting at the same time, had a DUMB beneath Archuleta Peak on the Jicarilla Indian Reservation near Dulce, New Mexico.

Thomas Edwin Castello, a whistleblower who worked security at Dulce for the Rand Corporation, would fill in the rest of the details. Evil Draco’s, sinister Reptoids, eighteen thousand Grays cloned to do their bidding and a multi-tiered installation extending untold miles into the earth.

On the upper tiers, assisted and sanctioned by an American government and its corporate sponsors presumably playing the part of Igor, research into human-aura, telepathy, hypnosis, dreams and experiments in separating the bioplasmic body from the physical body and substituting alien entities for human souls. On the lower levels, genetic experiments featuring multi-armed and multi-legged humans and seven-foot tall bat-like humanoids.

Castello provided intricate details of the Dulce base, but one has to question the credibility of those details when no one has ever proved there was any such person as Castello.

The alien genetic experiment circus had just started building to a crescendo when in eighty-six the Department of Energy’s (DOE), morphed from the original AEC, Office of Health and Environmental Research, launched the Santa Fe Workshop.

By 1990 under the careful guidance of the DOE, this would itself morph into the federally funded multi-billion dollar Human Genome Project. By 2003 the project had sequenced all the DNA found in the “euchromatic” regions of the human genome, about 90% of the total genome.

The human genome has approximately 3.3 billion base pairs. Mapping the chemical units in the genetic instruction set for each of them was a monumental effort and a global achievement. But there is always the presence of the usual suspects.

David Shirley was the Director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory from eighty to eighty-nine. Under the oversight of the DOE much of the early critical work for the project took place there. Shirley is on record as saying “The Human Genome Project may well have the greatest direct impact on humanity of any scientific initiative before us today.”[102]

World Wrestling Federation traditions cultivated during the Eighties by the alternative media continue to this day, as do precedents laid out in the Seventies in Hurtak’s book. Kerry Cassidy is a journalist, “psychic,” and de facto head of Project Camelot, a massively popular internet site dedicated to saving earth from the aliens. Cassidy claims to have interviewed a Captain Mark Richards three times, once at the end of 2013 and twice in 2014.

Richards, we are told by Cassidy, led the seventy-nine assault on the aliens at Dulce. The assault was ordered by his father “the legendary ‘Dutchman,’ Ellis Loyd Richards, Jr”. According to Cassidy, the Dutchman was the intelligence officer who originally met with the aliens at Holloman Air Force Base in sixty-four.

Because the government feared he would become a whistleblower and reveal their secret space program, Mark Richards has been imprisoned for murder for the last thirty something years. He has been sentenced to life without parole.

Richards is currently serving his time at Vacaville Prison in California. Cassidy visits him there for the interviews accompanied by Jo Anne Richards, whom he met and married while he was in prison.

Cassidy is not allowed to record or videotape inside the prison, so after she and Jo Anne have left the grounds, she must recount what Richards told her by memory. Although Richards has been incarcerated for over thirty years and is never being released, he is regularly briefed on the secret space program; for which of course, he is now the highest profile whistleblower.

In the first interview, which took place at Vacaville Prison on November 2, 2013, Richards, speaking through Cassidy who is recalling what he said, paints a picture of a human race that is secretly dominated by Draco. Some are malevolent, some beneficent, but all are ruthless and warlike. The Reptilians are using methane and radiation to terraform the Earth’s atmosphere.

Their objectives are to both make the planet more amenable to themselves and create “positive mutations” among humans moving them towards “humanity 2.0;” a new man that is immune to radiation and “able to travel through space more easily.”[103-18:06 and 36:12]

In language reminiscent of that used by Hurtak to describe bilocation, Cassidy describes teleportation and why it is not an option for space travel. According to Richards, it is used almost exclusively by Grays who are practically all clones. The interdimensional gates require them to dematerialize, and then be rematerialized on the other side as an exact copy but not the original. Understandably, humans in the secret space program and their Draco allies avoid these gates.[104 – 21:50]

In the second interview posted to the internet on August 2014 Cassidy was allowed to take notes. In greater detail than her first ‘interview’, she recounts to her audience how Richards is still active and running missions for the secret space program from Vacaville Prison using his “Merkabah or light body in order to do so.”[105–9:55] Later in the interview, Cassidy explains that, not only can Richards travel through space, but time as well, and without the assistance of a Stargate or wormhole, as can all humans “using their Merkabah light body.”[106 – 59:53]


Cassidy tells her audience that Richards attributes great antiquity to human DNA and he laments that although the Pleiadians contributed the early DNA to the human genome and were the first humans they have contributed nothing lately.[107 – 56:43]

Richards maintains that the mind “is based on DNA.”[108 – 1:03:07]

He feels that much of the current problems in the Middle East are the result of the secret pace programs attempts, with the help of their raptor allies, to guard the stargates, whose positions fluctuate in the mountains between Iran and Iraq. “He did say that Iran, the imams, are aligning themselves with the reptilian species perhaps mistakenly and this is part of why the Muslims, we are, constantly at war with the Muslim culture at this time, or at least one reason.”[109 – 1:10:58]

Cassidy’s third interview with Richards was posted to the internet in the middle of November. Possible extinction events are brought up as Cassidy waxes poetic about light emanating from the top of the Great Pyramid and other pyramids around the world as a protective grid system is possibly being activated by the secret space program.[110 – 8:30]

Richards compares the grid system of the pyramids to HAARP which he says “is actually a pyramid under the ground.”[111 – 10:00]


Doomsday Conspiracy

In 1991, best selling American author Sidney Sheldon would publish The Doomsday Conspiracy, a fictional novel about an NSA operative who discovers evidence of extraterrestrials while under contract to the NSA. In the book Sheldon writes “I wish to express my appreciation to James J. Hurtak, Ph.D, and his wife, Desireé, for making available to me their invaluable technical expertise.” At the time, I was told Dr Hurtak was the inspiration for this book. He repeated this during an interview on the video “Extraterrestrial Realities” circa 1993.[112]

Perhaps Hurtak was tipping their hand a bit when he wrote in The Keys of Enoch “at this time, changes in the new heavens have caused great changes to occur upon the Earth, loosening the chambers of the deep where the great scientific scriptures of the ages are hidden…”[113]

At the end of The Stargate Conspiracy in the section titled Behind the Giza myth-making, Picknett and Prince point out that, in the late Eighties and early Nineties, Hurtak was among the “foremost promoters of a link between the UFO phenomenon and the secrets of Nazi Germany.

He claimed that the extraterrestrials that brought civilization to the Middle East many thousands of years ago chose to reestablish contact with the human race in modern times with the Germany of the 1930s – on the grounds that it was the most scientifically advanced nation of the time.”[114 – 34:47]

It was 1999. The twenty-first century had not even dawned. The World Trade Center still stood in New York City. Millions had not yet perished in wars for a Greater Israel and the western economy hadn’t collapsed under the weight of Jewish profiteers. Jewish bankers weren’t yet prospering wildly from the ensuing economic carnage and helping themselves to trillions skimmed from a “Federal” Reserve and “International” Monetary Fund that they controlled.

It would be almost ten more years till America’s premier film critic Joel Stein speaking on behalf of his fellow drugged up Hollywood Jews would smugly quip in the LA Times “Yes, we control Hollywood. Without us, you’d be flipping between “The 700 Club” and “Davey and Goliath” on TV all day.”[115]

The historical revision of WWII had not yet even commenced so perhaps in keeping with the naivety of the times Picknett and Prince ask why “Hurtak finds nothing odd in the supposed fact that his advanced extraterrestrials should select Nazi Germany as their Chosen Ones.”[116 first link]

Hurtak says in the Introduction that The Keys of Enoch were revealed to him while he was “calling upon the name of the father” and his room “suddenly became full of a different type of light.”[117]

But in 1977 when he first published the book after lecturing on it for years Hurtak told UFO researcher Jacques Vallée that he had been programmed with the keys by a beam of light while driving through the desert.[118]

Perhaps the revised account Hurtak gave to the great UFO researcher was more in accordance with precedents set for NASA employees by Jack Parsons and the man Parson’s addressed as Most Beloved Father; Aleister Crowley.

In 1942, when Hurtak was still only two years old, his predecessor and eventual mentor Andrija (Henry) K. Puharich joined the military under the Army Specialized Training Program. By 1947 he was licensed to practice medicine. In a 1987 interview with Geraldo Rivera Puharich claimed that by 1948 he was involved with in an ongoing navy investigation into psychic powers. According to Puharich, the operation was code named Project Penguin and under the directorship of a Rexford Daniels.

Although the Navy denies the existence of a Project Penguin, a Rexford Daniels did exist. He owned a company in the Seventies that specialized in the research of electromagnetic emissions, their detrimental effect on man and his environment, along with the various ways in which the emissions interfere with each other. By the time of Puharich’s death, from falling down a flight of stairs in the beginning of 1995, he held fifty-six patents. Most of them involve electromagnetic stimulation of the brain as a communication aid to the deaf.

In the early Sixties Puharich demonstrated his Transdermal Hearing System for a Dr Leon Harmon from Bell laboratories. After two hours of flawless testing on a patient he himself had supplied all Dr. Harmon could say was “Damn it, Puharich, that’s not hearing, that’s telepathy what we saw.”[119]

In 1958 Puharich filed for patent 2,995,633; a “means for aiding hearing” by installing miniaturized Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) transmitters in tooth fillings in order to directly transmit information into the recipient’s brain.[manuscript pp. – 120] Investigative journalist Steven Levy asserts that by as early as 1947, Puharich was studying paranormal abilities “specifically … in ways he could document them, and perhaps enhance them, by electronic means.”[first link 121]


Vice President Henry Wallace

One of Puharich’s earliest benefactors and lifelong friend was Henry Wallace; America’s vice president in the critical war years from 1940-1944. It was Wallace who as Secretary of Agriculture was largely responsible for putting the Great Seal on the back of a dollar bill in 1935. In 1934 he would write of the missing capstone on the pyramid: “It will take a more definite recognition of the Grand Architect of the Universe before the apex stone is finally fitted into place and this nation in the full strength of its power is in position to assume leadership among the nations in inaugurating the new order of the ages.”[122]

The Great Seal

Wallace was a thirty-third degree Scottish Rite Freemason. Ironically, in light of the pending war, the ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ that Freemasonry was envisioning before WWII was very much in accordance with the traditional one envisioned by the Ordo Bucintoro, the progenitor of the Schutzstaffel or SS discussed in part 6, over four hundred years before. But the Empire would pull the greatest bait and switch in all of recorded history.

George Washington Carver
George Washington Carver

Wallace had learned all about agriculture at the foot of the master agronomist George Washington Carver, who stayed at his boyhood home while attending and teaching at Iowa State University in the 1890’s. Carver had taken the boy under his wing and took him along on his customary long nature walks, explaining to him the various flora and its habits.

But most of all, the great man, dubbed the ‘Black Leonardo’ by Time magazine in 1941, in Wallace’s own words, taught him; “God was in everything and therefore, if you went to God, you could find the answers.”[123]

Democratic president Franklin D. Roosevelt appointed Wallace, a Republican till 1936, Secretary of Agriculture in 1933. Wallace’s father Henry Cantwell had been the Secretary of Agriculture from 1921-1924. Probably the world’s foremost expert in the field of corn hybridization, by 1926 Wallace had already founded the company that would later become DuPont Pioneer, one of the world’s leading producers of genetically modified organisms.

Wallace would revolutionize an American agriculture that had been decimated by the one two punch of the Depression and Dust Bowl. He instituted innovative new policies like storing grain to be used in times of shortages in order to always keep the prices stable, the slaughtering of excess baby hogs, plowing up cotton fields and paying farmers to leave some lands fallow, and always the development of hybrid seeds to increase productivity.

For the urban poor, Wallace provided food stamps and school lunches. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. the two time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and anointed voice of America’s Northeastern Establishment called Wallace the best Secretary of Agriculture America ever had, even though he had no use for Wallace’s populist politics.

In the 1940 presidential election when he knew war was coming to the world, Roosevelt tapped Wallace to be his running mate on the democratic ticket, over the bitter objections of conservative southern Democrats. Roosevelt with Wallace, by now beloved by the American people, at his side, took the Electoral College vote by 449 to 82.

In 1941 Roosevelt would name Wallace chairman of the Board of Economic Warfare and of the Supply Priorities and Allocation Board, a position that would be crucial to America’s war effort. On May 8, 1942 Wallace would answer Skull and Bonesman and newspaper magnate Henry Luce’s imperialist call for an “American Century” after the war with his most famous speech which would later come to be identified by its phrase “The Century of the Common Man.”

Wallace said that freedom is defined by abundance for all: “Men and women can never be really free until they have plenty to eat, and time and ability to read and think and talk things over.”[124] Wallace wanted to dissolve the Empire and expand America’s New Deal liberalism throughout a world in which colonialism had been abolished. He predicted that Luce’s American Century would become “A Century of Fear.”

Such notions brought him into direct conflict with Republicans, southern Democrats and America’s psychopathically imperialist partners across the pond, then represented by Winston Churchill.

A Gallup poll taken just before the 1944 Democratic National Convention found 65% of Americans favored renomination for Wallace as vice president and only 2% favored Harry S. Truman. The ever treacherous Roosevelt and the empire’s sycophants in the Democratic Party would nominate Truman anyway. Roosevelt would die in short order after winning the election and Wallace who was America’s thirty-third vice president would miss being its thirty-third president by eighty-two days. Truman would go on to drop two nuclear bombs on the already badly beaten Japanese and provoke the Cold War with the empire’s former close ally; the Soviet Union.

From the shadows Wallace would remain one of the most powerful men in the United States, but publicly, he would be mercilessly attacked as a communist sympathizer and for his association with famed mystic Nicholas Roerich. In 1933 the Roosevelt Administration, which had just formally recognized the Soviet Union, sent Nicholas Roerich on a horticultural expedition to Central Asia on behalf of Wallace’s Department of Agriculture. Instead of botanical research Roerich, who was a native Russian, conducted an extensive search for the lost city of Shambhala.

Roerich eventually had to be recalled due to strenuous objections from Great Britain and Japan whom both had colonies in the areas Roerich was investigating. They insisted Roerich was stirring up trouble amongst the natives on behalf of the Soviet Union.

Correspondences during that period between Roerich and Wallace would be dragged up in the 1948 presidential elections by the empire’s media sycophants and labeled the Guru Letters, supposedly as an example of Wallace’s gullibility. Wallace was running against Truman under his own Progressive Party ticket. Perhaps McCarthyism’s first victims, both the people and Wallace would lose badly.


The Sacred Mushroom

With substantial grants from the Wallace fund[first link 125] and a military body called the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project, primarily concerned with atomic weapons,[126] Puharich would set up the Round Table Foundation in Glen Cove, Maine in 1948. Shortly before that he had been ‘discharged from the army for medical reasons.’ There, using technology’s that may yet still be classified; he tested famous psychics from all over the world for the next ten years.

At the same time, Puharich was secretly doing research for the intelligence agencies into psychological manipulation and hallucinogenic drugs, which he would selectively recount in The Sacred Mushroom published in 1959. Puharich was also tasked with researching the intelligence gathering capabilities of psychic phenomena, what would become known twenty years later through the SRI as Remote Viewing.[127]

Work for the Round Table Foundation was interrupted when Puharich was ‘redrafted’ in February of 1953 as a captain at the Army Chemical Center in Edgewood, Maryland. Edgewood is the Army’s experimental center for chemical and psychological warfare and neurophysical research. He served there until April 1955.[128] He would have undoubtedly, as would Edgewood, been collaborating with Fort Detrick, seventy miles away in their notorious MKULTRA Project ‘under the direction Dr Sidney Gottlieb’ head of the CIA’s Technical Services Division (TSS). In fact Gottlieb would still be the head of the TSS in 1972 when it would provide the initial financing to Hal Puthoff for what was ostensibly the SRI’s initial remote viewing project.[129]

From the Fifties to the late Seventies Puharich was a member of Essentia Research Associates in New York, an organization of scientists and businessmen that did psychic research for the Pentagon, NASA and the AEC. All the way back in November of 1952 Puharich presented a paper on Essentia’s behalf to the Pentagon titled “An Evaluation of the Possible Usefulness of Extrasensory Perception in Psychological Warfare.”[130] The paper got him redrafted three months later.

As would be expected of the man who redefined the word spook unauthorized documentation on Puharich is hard to come by. It is known that he engaged in some undisclosed work for the AEC in 1968 under the direction of Paul Henshaw, head of biophysics and the man that led the American team studying the effects of the Hiroshima bomb.[131]


Ira Einhorn and the Psychic Mafia

It was 1968. Puharich was doing surreptitious work for the AEC. At the same time the AEC was analyzing data from the Joint U.A.R.-U.S.A. Pyramid Project that it was financing. That same year Puharich would acquire a publicist and direct liaison to the likes of the Rockefeller’s and Bronfman’s in the form of a man named Ira Einhorn.

When Puharich took Einhorn under his wing, Einhorn was an obscure twenty-eight year old middle-class Jewish hippie. By 1970 Einhorn would be addressing the thronging masses as the Master of Ceremonies at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia for America’s first Earth Day rally, a day he had just invented.

He was Guru to the rich and powerful and facilitator of all things occult for corporations like AT&T and McDonald Douglass. By the early Seventies, Einhorn, who called himself the Unicorn, had put together a global association of scientists, industrialists, writers and philosophers who were the cutting edge of innovation in physics, parapsychology, psychology and various other fields.

The association boasted three-hundred and fifty experts from twenty different countries, with Einhorn circulating information to the members and acting as what he called the “planetary catalyst.” The group was funded by Bell, and Einhorn sometimes joked that he and Puharich were in the psychic mafia. A 1978 study by the Diebold Corporation, which attempted to figure out how he did it, compared Einhorn’s group to the ‘Invisible College’ of Seventeenth-century England.[132]

If there are questions or problems, Ted Fink can be reached at 726 Cornelia Place, Phila 19118.)

It would all end badly with the Seventies when police would find the decomposed body of Einhorn’s cheerleader girlfriend Holly Maddux stuffed into a trunk in the closet of his Philadelphia apartment. It was March of 1979 and she had been missing since the summer of seventy-seven. She had left an amorous liaison on Fire Island, with one of Puharich’s employees rushing off to Philadelphia to placate the jilted Einhorn. That was the last anyone saw of her.

But Einhorn’s powerful friends, led by Puharich, had stonewalled the investigation. By the time they found the body everyone knew Einhorn did it. When the cop pried open the putrid smelling trunk and saw its ghastly contents he turned to Einhorn and said “It looks like we found Holly.” Einhorn casually replied “You found what you found.”[133]

He was arrested, but at that point the Bronfman family intervened. Heirs to the Seagram liquor fortune and some would say Meyer Lansky’s Jewish criminal empire, the Bronfmans make their own laws. The ‘Unicorn’ would have no less than Arlen Specter, a soon to be senator for thirty years and already the inventor of the ‘magic bullet’ for the Warren Commission, as a lawyer. Time Magazine would note “Bail was set at a staggeringly low $40,000.”[134]

Barbra Bronfman promptly paid and after jetting about America for a while, between staying in the Bronfman’s palatial home in Montreal, Einhorn was whisked off to Europe days before his trial in 1981. He would spend twenty years living like royalty in the South of France before finally being extradited back to the United States in 2001, after exhausting his legal options. Claiming he was framed by the CIA, Einhorn was sentenced to life without parole in 2002.

In 1978 Puharich’s estate at 87 Hawkes Avenue in Ossining, New York was burned to the ground in a suspicious fire. He also blamed the CIA. Ossining is an upscale community on the Hudson River about twenty miles upriver of Manhattan and forty miles downriver of Esopus Island, where Crowley had performed the Amalantrah Working over half a century before.

Sing Sing, arguably America’s most notorious maximum-security prison, is in Ossining; but Puharich had other business there. Children from all over the world that had shown exceptional psychic abilities, dubbed ‘Uri’s kids’ after Uri Geller, were flown in to be housed on Puharich’s estate in a commune called the Turkey Farm. There they were tested, analyzed and even hypnotized in Puharich’s quest to find the source of their powers.

Unsatisfied with just a Turkey Farm Puharich and company were also running Lab Nine out of Ossining. Lab Nine, considering whom Puharich was, was an extremely dubious series of communications channeled by mediums like Uri Geller and Phyllis Schlemmer from the nine ancient Gods of On, whom it turns out are space gods… Schlemmer would write The Only Planet of Choice, a popular new age tome recounting the teachings of the Nine. Hurtak, whom the Nine designated as the spiritual leader, would write the introduction.

During the Seventies, the estate in Ossining, featuring resident gurus like Puharich, Einhorn and Hurtak along with a Turkey Farm, was frequented by just about everybody who was anybody in the New Age movement. People like Gene Roddenberry, Barbra Bronfman and Arthur Young; philosopher, author and inventor of the Bell Helicopter, who sometimes filled in for Puharich as ringmaster, were regular visitors to Ossining.[135]

One is reminded of the 1999 movie scene from the Matrix where Neo goes to see the Oracle, and she is running her own Turkey Farm in her living room. In Hudson Hawk, the 1991 mega budget flop about Alchemy, Secret Societies, the CIA and the Vatican, actor Bruce Willis who plays Hudson Hawk is asked where he got his tattoo of a Hawk from. He answers “in Ossining, New York.”[136]

Hudson Hawk is what they call the cold wind that blows down the Hudson River. That Puharich left indelible memories in a Hollywood community saturated with drugs and thoroughly infiltrated by both secret societies and legitimate intelligence operatives should come as no surprise to anyone who has heard the name Puharich more than once.

In 1953, Puharich began collaborating with R. Gordon Wasson in evaluating shamanic hallucinogens.[137] By May of fifty-seven, Wasson would publish an article titled Seeking the Magic Mushroom in Life Magazine. The article recounted Wasson’s hands on explorations into mushroom use among the Mexican Indians in the state of Oaxaca. Berkeley alumni and Harvard lecturer Dr. Timothy Leary would read it and in August of 1960 travel to Mexico to sample Psilocybin Mexicana for the first time.

When he returned to America Leary and some colleagues founded the Harvard Psilocybin Project. Leary would become the high priest of LSD and in universities all across the western world students would adapt Leary’s mantra to “tune in, turn on and drop out.” The Sixties were born. Before they would end President Richard Nixon would label Leary as “the most dangerous man in America.”[138]

Amanita muscaria
Amanita muscaria

Back in Maine, the Round Table Foundations resident medium Harry Stone ‘channeled’ information about a plant, used by the ancient Egyptian priesthood, which could separate consciousness from the physical body enabling it to travel through time and space to access knowledge hidden from the physical world.

Puharich somehow deduced that the plant was Amanita muscaria, a mushroom that he conveniently managed to find in abundance in the nearby woods of Glen Cove.

Famed Dutch clairvoyant Peter Hurkos would get some of Puharich’s magic mushrooms. He reported limited success in enhancing his precognitive abilities. Puharich also tested the mushrooms out on thirty-five subjects deemed to have no psychic abilities. The mushrooms had no effect. Stone however was another story altogether. He went into an almost convulsive trance and scored a perfect ten out of ten in psychic testing.

Aldous Huxley, perhaps the English language’s most important author of the twentieth century, was there during these experiments.

He gave this account: “I spent some days, earlier this month, at Glen Cove, in the strange household assembled by Puharich […] Harry, the Dutch sculptor, who goes into trances in the Faraday Cage and produces automatic scripts in Egyptian hieroglyphics […] whatever may be said against Puharich, he is certainly very intelligent, extremely well read and highly enterprising.”

“His aim is to reproduce by modem pharmacological, electronic and physical methods the conditions used by the Shamans for getting into a state of traveling clairvoyance. At Glen Cove they now have found eight specimens of the amanita muscaria. This is very remarkable as the literature of the mycological society of New England records only one previous instance of the discovery of an amanita in Maine. The effects, when a piece as big as a pin’s head, is rubbed for a few seconds into the skin of the scalp, are quite alarmingly powerful, and it will obviously take a lot of very cautious experimentation to determine the right psi-enhancing dose of the mushroom.”[139]

In 1967, Wasson published Soma: Divine Mushroom of Immortality, a hypothesis that Soma, the intoxicant of the Vedic Gods that was the source of their powers, was in fact Amanita muscaria.

  1. Jack, my old buddy Rex would break out the Sabbath when we were tripping back at U of Md. Once when we were in a room full of people talking, I pointed out to him we were not using our lips.We each ate a six way blotter. My first experience with esp with Rex not our last. Funny the experience with esp has happened since but rarely and I don’t believe the receiving party was always aware. Happenstance, who knows.

  2. It is notable that the toxins in Amanita Muscaria are water soluble and that the mushroom can be safely eaten if boiled in plenty of water first. Most recipe’s call for several boilings and water changes. Then saute’ in butter and olive oil. Very easy to find mushroom. Of course this will probably shorten any trips through the astral plane for all you frequent flyers. You can always save a few from the boiling to rub on your scalp or what-ever. Happy shrooming.

  3. The Merkaba allows one the ability to permanently set aside ego and instead adopt soul based qualities and attributes that typically cannot be accessed due to the mental and emotional detrius of the ego.

    Mushrooms, DMT, San Pedro cactus etc. are all shortcuts which only temporarily put aside ego, which is why when back in this reality again, whether after a 10 minute synthesized DMT trip or an 8+ hour long Ayahuasca journey, it is the ego perspective that continues to dominate in most cases.

    Wheels within wheels; the escape hatch cannot really be observed or accessed by ego from within what is essentially our daily waking Luciferian reality.

    Excellent work JH!


    • Excellent comment Bravo, that is why annihilation of the ego is the prerequisite for almost all known mystical systems. One must be careful but in ridding themselves of their ego lest they also rid themselves of their passions and become a eunuch. The word Merkabah actually comes from the Medu-Neteru, just one more thing Schlomo stole from the Egyptians. Mer means to connect the Ka and Ba. Orage provides an illustration of the Medu-Neteru at the bottom of this post on our blog:

    • No eunuch, male or female, is capable of performing the supreme act of love that is Rosaruim Philosophorum; to unite the male and the female and bring the Son of Man into this world. In the Zohar god gloats that he has defeated the kings of Edom but the Dragons have only been restrained. Their heads are broken by the waters of physical existence but they cannot be defeated only restrained. Therefore he still awaits his inevitable final battle with the Son of Man; Leviathan. In The Zohars Book of Concealed Mystery the king Dragon has been banished to the great sea, separated from the queen Dragon. The Book of Concealed Mystery goes on to say that the king and queen Dragons were two but they have been reduced into one lest their judgments against him multiply and overwhelm him.

      If you carefully read the Book of Job you will see there is only one thing the demon god of Israel fears and that is Leviathan. 41:10: “No one is so fierce that he dares to arouse Leviathan; who then is he that can stand before Me?” Another words the only one who can stand up to him is Leviathan. Rabbi Shlomo ben Aderet the thirteenth century Talmudic scholar known simply as the Rashba because he was the greatest of all Rabbi’s taught that Leviathan was the union of mans intellect with his soul, the same as the marriage of the anima and animus to consciousness in CG Jung’s interpretation of Rosarium philosophorum; Mer-Ka-Ba.

    • In the Talmud’s Bava Basra 74, 2; Rabbi Yehudah teaches that “if the male and female Leviathan should ever consummate the world that the God of Abraham has created would be made desolate.” Even his faithful Rabbi’s knew this is one battle Yahweh cannot win. Merkabah is just so much more than as it has been defined as by would be New Age profits like Hurtak. It is truly the doorway to eternity, the key to unlock damnation itself…

  4. Jack will you be doing some more sage of the quay radio shows? Phil Schneider, Al Bielek claimed to know him, and gave some interesting interviews r/t Phil and his dad Oscar.

    • The numbers on this piece are horrendous so far sr, can’t do an interview off of those…

      I never spoke with Beliek. He was my moms friend as was Hurtak. Like I intimated in the piece all these guys had the same publicist, except I reckon now Preston Nicol’s. He was the wild card, which explains the aura of mystery and reverence in which they held him…

  5. “@ 57: Big B.S. about a marine working 17 years on Mars & next on Moon!!!! I also worked on Mars & Moon. Now I am typing this from Pluto!!! (parachuted in)”

    LOL, you just made me spit coffee all over my computer screen LC.

    If Cassidy is not an Ashkanazi then I must be the pope. I find her and her endless attacks on National socialism repugnant, to say the least. For all those who have suspended their intellect and go along with her blaming everything on a secret cabal of Nazi’s, Knights Templar and Aliens let me just ask you this. Does Sheldon Adelson look like he is in the SS, or the Knights Templar? How about Allen Greenspan? No doubt Teutonic Order huh? You have traded in their old and tired Jesus myth for the Aliens 2.0 new one and are no better to your people or your country than a drooling Christian fundamentalist….

  6. Thank you LC for making me do a lot of unnecessary work. The quote is exact, right down to Ms. Cassidy’s stammering. It begins, perhaps, 2 seconds earlier than we said it did in the citations. These people all read these things LC, I’ve never had a complaint except from Paulides and he had problems. John Anthony West loved the first parts of Shadow of Nemesis and sent me an email telling me so, as have others, nothing from Hawass yet but…

  7. Jack,
    Puharich might have found his way into the ranks of the kahunas, and made himself at home during shamanic healing seances, but that does not mean that he had any real or deep comprehension of what he was observing.
    Shamans will often allow, or even invite entities to their seances that at first glance seem antithetical to the task at hand,which is returning Maat, Hozro, the divine order and harmonious interaction of the community of Life to the local experience.
    The fact that Mr. P. spent his life attempting to twist and manipulate what he deemed as the psychic potential for the greater control and encroachment of the parasite class speaks abundantly clear that the phuqqer didn’t get it.
    None of the parasites, or their servants get it, Jack.
    Here is a big hint, the shaman does not seek power because he is desirous of it for himself alone. The shaman seeks power because his very existence is keyed to a greater community of Life, and that community demands his participation.
    Puharich, and all his other cohorts in the murderous halls of parasitism will never, can never grasp this. They just ain’t Human enough.

    • Both Julian Schwinger and Puharich walked out on them Mike and Puharich really pushed it to the limit as far as violating his National Security obligations including taking out a patent for converting water to fuel, no doubt Viktor Schauberger’s, in 1983. It wasn’t like they could just take him out either, there were other party’s that were interested, the same party’s we have been talking about for the last 13 or so essays…

    • I have some very deep misgivings concerning anyone who would distort the pattern of the divine in order to benefit troglodytes, politicians, bankers, hollywood executives, and other unspeakably repellent scum.
      The link led to a removed video on monopoly tube, but Jack, as I’ve said before to you, I have far less respect for the games of the self-styled ruling class than do you.
      There are a myriad of possibilities when it comes to running this world, your comment on Wallace makes it clear that you understand this, and you also clearly understand the payment required to play these kind of archontic games.
      It could well be, that as Mr. P. continued rubbing elbows with parasites, he realized the payment required was far more than he was willing to give.

  8. Burp. Excuse me.
    Astral projection does not require mushrooms or any other paraphenalia to practise other than simple exercises.
    People with such skills are often employed in covert government agencies where they are used for remote -locating objects or describe events, remotelly in distance or in time.

    • Glad you enjoyed your meal Aziz and you couldn’t be more right, real Magi use thought forms that are separate from their own soul therefore able to avoid the consequences of discovery and retribution by the one being spied on. I would recommend anyone interested in doing it the right way read chapter 5: Of the Thing in The Garden; And the Way of the Tao in Aleister Crowley’s Moonchild. If you ask me the governments tactics were (and probably still are), including even the way they go about the Remote Viewing, wildly reckless, dangerous to their practitioners and everyone else around them. There are ways to do these things and they have been known for millenniums. Spying on others, unless perhaps it is your own soul mate, is bad for your Karma, hence the “Way of the Tao.”

  9. The plot thickens… Good read, indeed, thanks.
    BTW any thoughts in retrospective on The Economist cover from the New Year’s issue?
    Also, it seems that there is a “vibe” on the internet that something BIG is gonna happen on Sep 23rd?

  10. Consciousness will always escape the elite.
    It is so, due to the nature of the control game deployed against both human and planet.
    Similarly, the question of aliens has now become a fashion statement for those too crude to comprehend the sublime image of ancient paths.
    I have been secretly hoping that you, Jack and Orage, would expand your discussion to the ziggurat.
    There is so much more that could be written, but it is too easily misunderstood, and thus better left unsaid.

    • I just do the driving Mike Orage does the navigation. He says “Ziggurat, we´ve looked at briefly with Ur. Will tie in with Black Sea, GT and the fertile crescent. Not for the current series, in my opinion.” I have to agree with his opinion too, Golbeki Tepi is on the bucket list, the roots of Abraham’s demonic religions must be exposed, don’t worry Mike but to look right into the dark little heart of the empire we won’t need it. In fact with Orages most recent information dump I already have all we are ever going to need…

    • I mentioned the Cosmic Mountain, because it plays in heavily with the stepped cosmos, which is absolutely central to those civilizations that utilized the Pyramid. Even Egypt experimented with the stepped Pyramid.
      I agree that Mesopotamia is not central toward the unveiling of the current power game, but it is quite essential to the relationship of temporal existence with the Archons.
      If humanity is ever going to understand its potential, it will have to grasp a cosmogony that closely parallels the path toward the Unfolding.

  11. If a man tries to duplicate the experiences of a shaman by taking drugs or mechanically manipulating some “thing”, i have to ask, “Why not become a shaman” ? The road that leads to riches for the soul does not have a mechanical path. It is a solo journey embarked upon by the urge inside. There is no amusement park ride that easily replicates the matter in a single instance of consciousness enhancement. Divorce society, divorce things, divorce the system in any form. I like Hancock but this is where we differ. The short cuts do not get you there. As for aliens, until there is a single item, a single scrap of evidence for the masses, it is obviously a solo experience. Kinda sounds like the same journey.
    A shaman with integrity does not dole out drugs as a way to enlightenment. It is an experience that enhances an already in place commitment on the road less traveled. No short cuts.

    • David, one of my favorite Marines, always enjoy your astute comments. In all actuality David Puharich was an ordained Kahuna, along with being a master hypnotist and expert on shamanic religions which he flew frequently to South America to study, living with the natives so to say. But you are right, even though you sound like my dad (he was gung ho 101est) with the drugs. There is little doubt in my mind after doing this research that the psychotropic drugs being experimented with were just as intended to alter DNA as they were perception. Did you know our government purchased 100 million hits of pharmaceutical LSD from Sandoz? Orage has the receipt. Where did it all go? It went in your food supply, nutrients for Hurtak’s Beloved…

    • Brief background on myself; while still in high school (75-77) we were given unlimited access to LSD, synthetic mescaline and Ketamine, now called special K. I remember driving back from Queens with only Learners permits between the 4 of us with 30 thousand hits of LSD and shopping bags full of Quaaludes. I quickly found out I was practically immune to the LSD and the mescaline. I took massive quantity’s of it with no effect whatsoever except the day would appear brighter and the universal patterns, what they call sacred geometry, became more focused than usual. I would begin my nights by downing a shot glass full of the little yellow mescaline pills, anywhere between 30 and 40, then washing it down with a couple of shots of Wild Turkey, no hallucinations David, nothing and I was trying like hell to have one in order to explain the things I had seen in my childhood. I have read that Shamans in India exhibit the same immunity. That’s why the whole mind control thing David is a red herring, it never worked for them! The soul is separate from the body and you can do what you want to the body without ever having touched the soul…

    • David, Tata would be so proud! It’s been quite a journey since meeting you in Guatemala, my Friend….Bless you for your integrity!

  12. Thank you AWP, no doubt the government should have consulted you and your web site before making any important decisions.

  13. Well Peter its not Orage or my job as the authors to say whether there are any aliens or not, any evidence we could produce either way would be hearsay. Its our job to accurately convey the facts to you so you can make that decision for yourself. In theory that’s how journalism worked before Reagan shuffled into the White House and neutered the FCC. As far as ELF, again same thing, but I can tell you that the Black Sun Rising series contains an unbroken thread of evidence for covert experimentation with it at the highest levels of science since Friedrich Paschen first started experimenting with it in Germany before even the turn of the twentieth century. At the close of WWII or shortly thereafter, while still in medical school, Puharich wrote the definitive paper on its interaction with the human neural system, outside of course…still classified National Socialist science, which is exactly what “MKUltra” really is. That paper made Puharich the heir of that technology in the service of the powers that be and defined him as one of the most brilliant men this country has ever produced. Obviously from just what researchers have been able to dig up the Pentagon needed no more convincing… Although as you say I would not trust him as far as I could throw him, but we will tie it all into a neat little package for you before we are done with the series. That is our job…

    • Yes Grampah for me too when I read about it. I guess it kinda explains the liberal CIA accusations that a lot of VT readers like to throw around in the VT comment sections. Its a shame such crucial turning points in the history of this country are not taught to the children of this country…

  14. Well here is your schism between the empires intelligence services, no doubt that came with the rejection of the Wallace faction after all they did for the empire, its nothing some marriage counselings ever going to fix…

    As always this piece and this whole project is indebted to Erica P. Wissinger’s tireless and talented editorial work. Thank you again Erica.
