The video is “One Step Beyond”: The Sacred Mushroom. (Best 5 Episode), an early sixties ABC screening of Puharich’s second expedition to find a clairvoyance inducing mushroom.
Those of you have read about my old friend Dr. J J Hurtak in Shadow are probably wondering where he really got all that stuff about reengineering human genetics. As pointed out by Robert Morning Sky, another Dine shaman working with NASA, sad to say, MK Ultra is a full spectrum control system. It does not just stop at the physical body as the father of mind control and Hurtak’s mentor Dr. Andrija Puharich well knew.
I have a reader who runs a retreat on a Caribbean island where he supervises the ingestion of hallucinogenics, had him for eight years. He pops up in the emails every couple of years, but he’s always reading. He just wrote me to tell me Blaze and Drudge are now finally getting around to telling their audience about the Skinwalker ranch.
Stan who somehow seems to know and I am being sarcastic, what is in my unsecured emails puts this link up on Shadow in the Human where he is always lurking. All our extensive research on Andrija Puharich, the father of mind control, never turned this up. It’s a half hour television show featuring Puharich in his prime traipsing about the jungles of South America with a crack team of scientists, no doubt supplied by the CIA who worshiped at Puharich’s feet, hunting pharmaceuticals to enhance clairvoyance.
Interning Puharich carried out experiments with drugs that were sponsored by Sandoz Chemical Works, the pharmaceutical company that developed LSD.
During that period he was influenced by the pioneering work of Joseph Banks Rhine, the founder of parapsychology and upon completion of his Internship Puharich studied ESP as an extension of his work with nerve conduction at university.
Always in the mood for ‘explanations’ he once remarked that what he was “trying to establish is that the brain is an area wherein is localized the cell energy of the body. I shall label this cell energy ‘dynamics.’ I further venture to say that transference of dynamics from one person to another is possible.” (1)
Puharich pointed out that it was common knowledge “that there are people who can thrill and exhilarate one, and that there are others who simply bore and fatigue one. This implies that there is a wireless, touchless transfer of this vital substance.
If dynamics can be transferred from one organism to another, why cannot that other function of the mind – thought, also be transferred from one mind to another mind? It is also conceivable that dynamics not only passes freely between persons, but also dissipates out into the atmosphere.” (2)
In 1949 Puharich met Eileen Garrett, the founder of the Parapsychological Foundation in New York City . She would introduce him to John Hays Hammond, Jr., the man who would be his closest friend for the next decade and, in Puharich’s own words, his “mentor.” (3)
Wikipedia hails Hammond as “The Father of Radio Control.” That’s sending signals to remote controlled devices. A product of Yale and filthy rich from birth, Hammond passed away in 1965 at seventy-six, owning 800 foreign and domestic patents on more than 400 inventions, primarily in the fields of radio control and naval weaponry.
By 1929 Hammond had built his own castle replete with drawbridge overlooking Gloucester Harbor in Massachusetts. It’s now a museum offering guided tours of its legendary Roman, medieval and renaissance art collection.
Another 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.” (4)
With substantial grants from a fund set up by Wallace and a military body called the Armed Forces Special Weapons Project, primarily concerned with atomic weapons, 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.
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. He would have undoubtedly, as would Edgewood, been collaborating with Fort Detrick, seventy miles away in their notorious MK-Ultra Project supposedly under the direction Dr Sidney Gottlieb’ head of the CIA’s Technical Services Division .
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 Atomic Energy Commission (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.” (5) 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.
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.
Einhorn 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.
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.” (6)
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, as a lawyer, the inventor of the ‘magic bullet’ for the Warren Commission. Time Magazine would note “Bail was set at a staggeringly low $40,000.” (7)
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 go on to write The Only Planet of Choice, a popular new age tome recounting the teachings of the Nine. Dr. JJ 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.
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…” (8)
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. 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.” (9)
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.” (10)
“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.” (11)
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.

We are living in a post-apocalyptic era where the only constant is the millstone of isolation that weighs down upon the sentient like the world on the shoulders of Atlas. Speak and no one hears, cry and no one cares, laugh and surely you are as mad as those who have brought us here. Those Who Would Arouse Leviathan is an inside account of how and why they did. Long Island is “an evil dirty place.” The Montauk Project, Flight 800, and the Amityville Horror, I am a witness to all of them and this book is my testimony.

The Sacred Mushroom
What an article Jack, compelling as always and I know this is just a toe in the pool on Puharich. Your touching on my old stomping grounds, and teaching me stuff i did not know. Very interesting how Puharichs’ property was just down the road from IBM Watson research facility eh? My best friend growing up, his mom was the secretary for one Dr Garwin there who had routine visits from three letter agencies and when i did a bit of digging apparently belonged to the Club Of Rome…you know normal stuff everyone’s boss does. When I read Wasson’s Soma book in 11th grade, to do a paper for my psych class on psychedelics I had no idea of the connections between the Author and the area I was going to school in..would have made for a better paper. Do you think there was any interaction between the Glen Cove boys and Dr. Reich in Maine? He didn’t go to Jail till 1957. Thanks for the hard work as always.
Negative on Dr. Reich and the Glen Cove Boys Morgan, Orgone energy is clean; it’s positive energy. Those guys are into the dark side. I know them. How do you think I know the guy I mentioned at the top? The Round Table is as you say the elite of the elite, Club of Rome, the Bilderbergs, the Rockefellers, and the Bronfman’s, those types. With his crazed experiments, and don’t think for a minute human sacrifice was beneath him, Puharich opened some kind of portal to let the nine in. The elitists of the human race, particularly NASA which in Hebrew means a marriage agreement, has a coven with them. We’ve already explained to you the importance of blood sacrifice in these shamanic rituals with the Cuba post. Sing Sing was right down the road and they had a turkey farm full of children. He burnt his own mansion down to cover his tracks, and for a hefty insurance settlement is my guess. Frankly I believe Einhorn. Holly Madison was sleeping with one of Puharich’s friends on Fire Island (remember the Gilgo Beach serial killings five miles away?), which was the last place she was known to be. Supposedly Einhorn coerced her into seeing him one more time and she hopped a train from New York to Philadelphia. That was when he killed her. I doubt it. Orgone energy is their Nemesis which is why they had Reich locked up forever and his work purged. If Wilhelm Reich ever met with them it was to tell them the same thing I have told them; they are mad…
They are Mad, and their God is Mad as well right? A stark raving Loony who is Jealous and Spiteful to His Mother, and of the True source that will always be above him. Puharich is truly scary. I wonder whom or what burned with his house? As the old Tootsie roll commercial used to say, “The world may never know”. Interesting thing about all the Orgone devices I’ve made and interacted with is that that they will not work for nefarious actions, and the most effective way of hurting or stopping an entity or human engaged against you in Predatory behavior is to send Love from your Heart, it seems counter-intuitive at first when you are angry and are defending yourself but they seem to recoil in abject horror to it. I get a real kick using it against Cops in my area because all Cops are predatory in nature. I’ve been wondering why the Bronfmans have been chosen to get thrown under the bus in the NXIVM sex cult thing, I seem to hear their name more than any other. I would bet that ALL of those sick bastard family’s were enjoying that party. Thanks for the reply Jack.
Morgan, interesting but not surprising that you mention IBM in connection to Puharich. They also had extensive dealings with everyone’s fav villain in uprooting and reshuffling people. Perhaps we get into that in the piece on the Bormann faction.
