Silicon Valley’s Secret Weapon: The Shadow History of Burners, Part 7: Social Engineering on the Electronic Frontier

Gnostic Media is happy to present podcast Episode #261: Steve Outtrim returns for his eighth time to continue our discussion into his research on Silicon Valley and Burning Man, titled: “Silicon Valley’s Secret Weapon: The Shadow History of Burners, Part 7: Social Engineering on the Electronic Frontier”. This is the long awaited conclusion of this series since beginning it over 16 months ago, and this episode is live and we may field questions from the audience.

This also ends the time consuming, pre-recorded and edited Gnostic Media podcast episodes, moving to a live format after nearly 9 years.

Steve Outtrim is a technology entrepreneur from New Zealand, who now lives in San Francisco. He created the HotDog Web Editor, which was named as the 3rd most downloaded software on the Internet by WIRED in 1997. He IPO’d his company Sausage Software in Australia in 1996, making him at age 23 the youngest CEO of a public company – a record held by Rupert Murdoch for more than 40 years. He has invested in more than 50 early-stage technology companies and founded 4 that he exited via IPO or trade sale.

Steve is a Shadow Historian, and for the last 3 years has been writing a book series looking behind the scenes of the tech world. Steve created the blog Burners.Me in 2012 to discuss Burning Man and Burner culture. It is the largest independent Burner site, with more than 200,000 followers. He has been to 12 burns since 1998.

Steve brings a first-hand, unique perspective to Silicon Valley and its ties to the military and Burning Man.

Transhumanism & the Illuminati

giger-baphometvia Conspiracy School
by David Livingstone
08/09/2015

Transhumanism may seem like a crackpot fringe movement, but it is the new ideology of the Illuminati.

Transhumanism is expressed as a bizarre aspiration to achieve immortality, according to lunatic ambitions like cryogenics, placing miniature robots in our bloodstream, “augmenting” ourselves as cyborgs, and even uploading our minds to the Internet.

Sound like the prognostications of a mad scientist? However, these new trends are being spearheaded by the likes of Google, and are therefore in the hands of those who have at their disposal the means to exercise extraordinary control over our lives. One of Google’s own heads of engineering, Ray Kurzweil, is the adored modern-day prophet of transhumanism.

The truth is, that a formidable conspiracy has taken place right under our noses for the last 50 years. While all the attention of conspiracy researchers has been focused on JFK, UFOs and 9/11, a plot to create the ultimate surveillance tool has proceeded almost unsuspected. It has been the plan to bring about the All-Seeing Eye of the reverse side of the American dollar bill: the personal computer.

The history of transhumanism is the history of Satanism in our time. It begins with the Cybernetics Group, a CIA front, headed by Norbert Wiener. In God and Golem, Inc., Wiener compares the creation of artificial intelligence with the Kabbalistic legend of the golem, a supposed living being created through magical means.

From the Cybernetics Group also emerged MK-Ultra, the CIA’s “mind-control” program, which was an extension of the Nazis’ experiments on schizophrenics, imported with Operation Paperclip. MK-Ultra promoted the “mind-expanding” quality of psychedelic drugs, based on occult legends that the shamans of ancient times used similar substances, equated with the “apple” of the Tree of Knowledge, to contact the spirit world.

Through MK-Ultra patients among the Beat Poets, like Allen Ginsberg, and agents William S. Burroughs, the CIA produced the Hippie culture of 60s. With “sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll”, they fulfilled the plans of the Frankfurt School to overthrow traditional morality by way of the infamous bands of the Laurel Canyon scene, in league with members of Crowley’s OTO, the Manson Family and the Church of Satan.

Knowing that the creation of the computer would be correctly suspected as a tool of Big Brother, the CIA aligned the Hippie ideals with the emerging computer culture to produce a movement called Cyberpunk, from which transhumanism evolved.

via R$E
Aug 27, 2014

The elitist agenda of providing controlled outlets for rebellion and drug abuse as a method of occult indoctrination for the NWO.

Points covered in this documentary:

DANCE – The ritualistic satanic voodoo origins of varying dance moves pushed in today’s youth ‘rave’ culture inc. the use of sex magick.
MUSIC – The mind-altering Binaural tones and low frequency vibrations used to further the mind control through the music.
DRUGS – The subliminal power given the hot-seat through the combination of drugs and hypnotic trance. The opening of the mind to demonic influence and experiences, whilst invoking the negative energy at the rave/festival scene rituals.
ENERGY – The biggest goal, other than leading you away from the love of the Father, is to harvest the negative energies across the globe in order to open the pit (abyss). Dark music rituals/Fear in the news/War etc. all contribute to this agenda.

The Zionist-CIA Assault on Body and Mind 

By Joshua Blakeney

For this episode of The Real Deal I interviewed the illustrious Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media. He is the first intellectual I have interviewed twice since I began recording episodes of The Real Deal in November 2013. The scope and depth of Jan’s analysis will reveal why.

The main focus of the interview was to be Jan’s newly published article entitled “Entheogens: What’s in a Name? The Untold History of Psychedelic Spirituality, Social Control, and the CIA”. However we broached multiple subjects including:

  • The CIA and Zionist genesis of the MKULTRA program
  • The CIA and Zionist involvement in the Psychedelic Movement
  • The roles of Timothy Leary, Aldous Huxley, R. Gordon Wasson, Edward Bernays et al. in the creation and popularization of psychotomimetic drugs
  • The public relations efforts aimed at normalizing brain damaging drugs
  • Dysgenics, eugenics and the destabilization of Western society
  • The Soviet Union’s gulag (overt control) versus the capitalist West’s psychological warfare (covert control)
  • The promotion of cultural, moral and epistemic relativism as a means of obscuring social and political reality
  • The Frankfurt School of Social Research & Zionist racism
  • The health implications of eating wheat, not drinking raw milk and adopting low fat diets
  • Feminism and the destruction of the family

Introduction

Today there are many names for drug substances that we commonly refer to as “hallucinogens,” “psychedelics,”psychoactives,” or “entheogens,” et al. But it hasn’t always been that way. The study of the history and etymology of the words for these fascinating substances takes us, surprisingly, right into the heart of military intelligence, and what became the CIA’s infamous MKULTRA mind control program, and reveals how the names themselves were used in marketing these substances to the public, and especially to the youth and countercultures.[1]

The official history has it that the CIA personnel involved in MKULTRA were just dupes, kind of stupid, and, by their egregious errors, the psychedelic revolution “happened” – thwarting their efforts. The claim is that these substances “got out of the CIA’s control.” Words like “blowback” and “incompetence” are often tossed around in such theories regarding the CIA and military intelligence, but without much, if any, supporting evidence.

It’s almost impossible today to have a discussion regarding the actual documents and facts of MKULTRA and the psychedelic revolution without someone interrupting to “inform” you how “it really happened” – even though most often they have never studied anything on the subject.

As we get started, I would like to propose that we question this idea of blowback: Who does it benefit to believe that it was all an accident and that the CIA and military intelligence were just dupes? Does it benefit you, or them? It might be uncomfortable for a moment for some of us to admit that maybe they (the agents) weren’t so stupid, and maybe we were the ones duped. Sometimes the best medicine is to just admit “hey, you got me” and laugh it off. For those of you who’ve heard these blowback theories and haven’t considered the possibility that the CIA created these movements intentionally, this article may be challenging for you, but stick with it, as it will be worth your while.

Now we’re ready. Because, defenses aside, a more honest, and less biased, inquiry into the history and facts reveals, startlingly, something quite different from the popular myths. This paper reveals, for the first time, how the opposite of the official history is true, and that the CIA did, in fact, create the psychedelic revolution and countercultures – intentionally.

As I’ll show in this article, the goal had changed and they wanted a name that would help sell these substances to the masses as sources of spiritual enlightenment rather than insanity. In their book The Psychedelic Experience: A Manual Based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead, we see doctors Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner, and Richard Alpert explain:

Of course, the drug dose does not produce the transcendent experience. It merely acts as a chemical key — it opens the mind, frees the nervous system of its ordinary patterns and structures. The nature of the experience depends almost entirely on set and setting. Set denotes the preparation of the individual, including his personality structure and his mood at the time. Setting is physical — the weather, the room’s atmosphere; social — feelings of persons present towards one another; and cultural — prevailing views as to what is real. It is for this reason that manuals or guide-books are necessary. Their purpose is to enable a person to understand the new realities of the expanded consciousness, to serve as road maps for new interior territories which modern science has made accessible.[2]
—Timothy Leary, Ralph Metzner, Richard Alpert

But what was the purpose of all of this? They state “The nature of the experience depends almost entirely on set and setting.” As we’ll discover on this etymological trip, it was all about marketing – the CIA’s marketing – regarding set and setting. Sound like a “whacky conspiracy theory” yet? As we’ll soon discover, it’s not. The CIA’s MKULTRA program was very real, was exposed before Congress in the Rockefeller and Church Commissions, and was all over the news media in the 1970s. But that was 40 years ago and this is now. So why should we care? Because much of the program wasn’t revealed in the 1970s and persists to the present, and it affected just about everyone. It wasn’t limited to just a few thousand victims of the CIA’s secret human experiments. There were actually many more victims – millions more. You may have been one of them.

As we’ll see, this idea that the psychedelic revolution and counterculture were intentionally created affects most of us: the youth caught up in drug use, the parents, the anti-war movement, those involved in the psychedelic revolution or in politics; as well as artists, or people who use these substances for spirituality, or even anyone who’s ever spoken the word psychedelic. It affects us because, as we’ll see, that’s what it was meant to do.

In the early years of research into these drugs, psychology researchers and military intelligence communities sometimes called them, aside from “hallucinogen,” by the name “psychotomimetic” –which means psychosis mimicking. The word hallucinogen, “to generate hallucinations,” came just a few years before psychotomimetic. The same year that psychotomimetic was created we also saw the creation of the word “psychedelic” – which means “to manifest the mind.” The last stage of this etymological evolution, as we’ll see, was the word “entheogen” – which means “to generate god within.” We’ll return to hallucinogen and these other words in the course of our journey.

While these words may have told what these substances do in the intelligence community’s collective understanding, accurate or not, they are loaded with implications. Suggestibility, otherwise known as “set and setting,” is one of them. The study of the history of these words, their etymology, reveals how MKULTRA researchers covered up and kept covered up – until now that is – this aspect of the MKULTRA mind control program.

Today we interview JAN IRVIN from GNOSTIC MEDIA. An independent researcher in the field of ethno-mycology and the history of psychedelics, Jan has presented some of the most ground breaking research in alternative sphere in years, particularly in the field of psychedelic drugs such as psilocybin mushrooms, LSD, and DMT the active ingredient in ayuhuasca.

In becoming the publisher of John Allegro’s seminal book ‘The Sacred Mushroom & The Cross’ Jan found connections between the LSD gurus of the 60’s counter culture and a myriad of government and intelligence groups. Prominent among them R. Gordon Wasson, a JP Morgan Banker who led Jan into a whole new area of research in the psychedelic arena.

Jan presents a new understanding of our present drug culture, especially with the resurgence of psychedelia and new age sentiment. For more on Jan Irvin check his podcast and website Gnostic Media http://gnosticmedia.com

How and Why “Conscious” Festivals Need to Change — video and documentary included

by Humberto Braga II
LVX
May 22, 2014

Wouldn’t it be great to have a lifestyle where you didn’t have to bounce between “making a living” and enjoying your favorite festivals? Then I have a proposition for you all.

Now, before you get your fuzzy, pink glitterboots in a dusty uproar, rest assured that I’m not just going to bash the beloved Burn. I’m just going to use it as an example since it’s the biggest “conscious” festival of its kind (like Lightning in a Bottle, Wanderlust, Lucidity, etc…). I appreciate much of what Burning Man does as an experimental temporary society. I’ve been to Burning Man, danced my butt off in the dust storms, and I have many good friends who go each year. I’ve seen and heard firsthand both the amazing positive side and the disturbing dark side of Burning Man. Despite the darker side, I appreciate the possibilities for healing, creativity, and camaraderie that Burning Man provides. My intention in writing this, however, is to propose an inspiration for a greater vision that lasts 24/7 for all 365 days.

Image

On the surface, I understand the appeal of Burning Man: take a brief vacation, have an adventure in to the middle of nowhere, be creative, have a gift-economy, and let loose with fun-loving strangers in an attempt to get away from the pressures and constraints of everyday life (never mind the groups of police constantly patrolling the campgrounds).

Well, even though Burning Man is supposedly “counter-culture” on the surface, underneath it still endorses the exact same mentality that the “Powers That Be” feed off of in the mainstream culture. Burning Man, with respect to its positive aspects, is essentially a huge, extremely expensive, unsustainable, ‘flash-in-the-pan’ 1-week party in the desert where vanity and escapism are rampant. Sounds pretty similar to the image Hollywood sells as “cool”, doesn’t it?

In that respect, Marianne Williamson dropped an awareness-bomb, speaking powerfully and poignantly about the self-defeating trap of “conscious festivals” at Lightning in a Bottle (another smaller festival akin to Burning Man) which must be taken in to consideration for creating a greater paradigm in light of the global situation.

So, with Marianne’s message in mind, one has to ask themselves, “What is it all building toward? And can it be improved?” …I think it absolutely can, and it must.

From looking at the expenditures of each year, it’s clear that Burning Man has pulled in well over tens of millions of dollars in each recent year. Combined with the amount of money each of the 50,000+ annual festival-goers spend on gas, food, art supplies, and other preparations, the amount of money and resources spent on this 8-day festival of Burning Man is ASTONISHING… But then what? Could it be put to better use?

What if, instead of one short-lived, albeit generally well-meaning, annual party, that money was put toward creating a progressive, technologically sustainable community that could sustain numerous festivals? What if this community operated with open source information/collaboration technology, green tech designs with little to zero ecological footprints, scientifically optimized products for sustainable solutions coming in to greater balance with nature, free innovative education, spiritual and psychological awareness, and free, clean energy? Imagine what could be accomplished if all that money, utilized in a non-profit capacity, was put towards assembling a cutting-edge team of engineers, manufacturers, information technology experts, permaculturists, teachers, holistic doctors and therapists, and land management specialists on an optimal private property that could create a model community! The resources are obviously available! Thousands of volunteers would gladly help! Why WOULDN’T we want that?

Looking at the financials, it’s VERY possible that by foregoing ONE Burning Man, enough revenue will generated from “ticket sales” (I.O.U. tickets for when the groundwork for the “New Burning Man” project is established), crowd source fundraising, and donations from progressive companies to pioneer a better way of living that could be replicated around the world! Taking a sober look at the world, it’s evident that experimenting with these sort of projects is an evolutionary necessity. We cannot depend on corrupt, corporately controlled governments and fraudulent, privatized economic systems to fix the very problems it has created and continues to perpetuate. We all must take responsibility in working toward a greater future. And if the 10 Principles of Burning Man are anything more than just paper-thin, hypocritical lip-service, then it is incumbent upon all Burners to strive for greater Radical Civic Responsibility, Inclusion, Communal Effort, Participation, and Immediacy toward a greater cause that would be greater than anything anyone could imagine.

Take a good look at the lives we lead. We lead lifestyles that were once was the privilege of emperors, kings, and great courts, yet we all too often squander our creative and intellectual potential by conforming to a fetishized culture of escapism, superficial gratification, drugs, and a bombardment of feel-good disinformation that distracts and holds us back from truth and empowerment.

Rome distracted its citizenry with games, drugs, and gaudy spectacles. Religion sold lies to profit while keeping people from rebelling against government. Now, as Jan Irvin illustrates in the video below, the CIA has co-opted the counterculture movement with the same old methods. History repeats itself until we learn the lesson.

The bottom line is this: We are capable of SO much more, and time is precious.

You want to “raise your vibration” and help the world? Here’s the chance.

What are you going to do with it?
