Episode 252: Steve Outtrim returns for his third time to continue our discussion into his recent research into Silicon Valley and Burning Man, titled: “Silicon Valley’s Secret Weapon: The Shadow History of Burners Part 3: Satan’s Birthday Party”
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.

[Potent News editor’s note: UnSpun 032 is also being unjustly censored on the Gnostic Media facebook page. Over the past couple days I have personally witnessed that status update (for the YouTube/MP3 version) dissappear and reappear two times. When it reappeared the 2nd time, the “load previous comments” button even failed to work. Note that while the Vimeo and Facebook video versions of this episode remain on the GM facebook page (as of now), the status update which was targeted was the one which had spawned the most discussion. I declare that my sharing the corroboration of this information has itself been strangely deleted from my own personal facebook wall (and not my Potent News facebook page as of now).]

The story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet. In 2002 Google began to scan millions of books in an effort to create a giant global library, containing every book in existence. They had an even greater purpose – to create a higher form of intelligence, something that HG Wells had predicted in his 1937 essay “World Brain”. But over half the books Google scanned were in copyright, and authors across the world launched a campaign to stop Google, which climaxed in a New York courtroom in 2011. A film about the dreams, dilemmas and dangers of the Internet.

Wes’ Comment: I wrote about this in the Wes Penre Papers. Make sure to go to the original website (above) as well to watch the quite disturbing 2 min. videos there. As you will see, most “dolls” are teenage or even pre-teenage girls being used for sex. They even have sparse pubis hair, just like a young teenage girl.
This is what they are promoting now to prepare us. I can guarantee you that in the near future you can buy a robotic lover who is just as flexible as a human, showing the same emotions as a human would do during sex, also having fake orgasms that appear quite real. These future robots will also be programmable, so the owner can reprogram his/her lover the way he/she wants them.
Make no mistake about it. Such robots already exist, albeit they have to prepare us gradually…But it’s coming…it’s coming!
They’re freakishly realistic and until now it would have been unthinkable – but we could have them in our homes – and beds – this year.
It might sound like the plot of a 1980s sci-fi film – but sex robots may actually be the biggest tech trend of 2016.
The popularity of the artificially human machines has grown directly in tandem with their realism.
And not only will people be having intimate relations with them – they may even fall in love with them too.
Dr Helen Driscoll, a leading authority on the psychology of sex and relationships, said ‘sex tech’ was already advancing at a fast pace.

Cybersickness is caused by seeing movements, such as a rapid-pace scene of an action film, without actually feeling those motions. This maladjustment runs counter to traditional motion sickness, when one feels movement in the body and inner ear, but does not see it ‒ for example, on the deck of a ship sailing at sea. Fixating on the horizon can often reconcile the mismatch.
“Your sense of balance is different than other senses in that it has lots of inputs,” said Steven Rauch, medical director of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Balance and Vestibular Center and professor of otolaryngology at Harvard Medical School, according to New York Times.
“When those inputs don’t agree, that’s when you feel dizziness and nausea,” Rauch said.

Arise!: the SubGenius Video, a 1992 spoof documentary covering the Church of the SubGenius
Because the focus of much conspiracy research has been dirverted to the Federal Reserve, UFOs, “the Jews” and even the Jesuits, it has failed to apprehend the most important development of occultism in modern times and the source of transhumanism.
Until recently, occultism was dominated by societies like the Golden Dawn, or Aleister Crowley’s OTO. While the influences of these societies are still central, they have proliferated in entirely new ways. While once associated with solemn candlelit rituals and dark incantations performed by robed mystics, occultism has a new face, and it’s the pranksterism of a bizarre parody religion called Discordianism, founded by a close friend of Lee Harvey Oswald, Kerry Thornley.
The principles of Discordianism are mockery. But it’s jocularity hides a more sinister agenda, which is the prejudice that nothign is sacred, underlying their bigroty towards “traditional religions.”
The principles of Discordianism were in part developed in The Illuminatus! Trilogy, speculative fiction novels co-authored by Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea. But Discordianism began with Greg Hill (aka Malaclypse the Younger or Mal-2) and Kerry Thornley (aka Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst or Lord Omar), who were drawn together by their common interest in humanism, atheism, black magic, hypnotism and their own deranged sense of humor. The Discordian Society was founded after the 1965 publication of its first holy book, the Principia Discordia.
According to historian Carole Cusack, the modern pagan revival is largely understood to be the result of the influence of Gerald Gardner, the founder of Wicca, whose rituals were developed with Aleister Crowley. Whenever something goes wrong, pagans will typically pronounce, “Hail Discordia!” in reverence of the goddess of chaos of Discordianism. Margot Adler in Drawing Down the Moon, which provided the first comprehensive look at modern nature-based religions in the US, credits Thornley for being the first to coin the word “pagan” to refer to the various occult movements who paraded themselves as “nature” religions.
The modern popularization of the terms “pagan” and “neopagan,” as they are currently understood, is largely traced to Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, co-founder of the Church of All Worlds (CAW), which was heavily influenced by Discordianism. CAW was influenced by OTO member Robert Heinlein’s science-fiction novel Stranger in a Strange Land. In the science-fiction novel, a Martian-raised human named Michael Valentine Smith founded The Church of All Worlds, preached sexual freedom and the truth of all religions, and is martyred by narrow-minded people who are not ready for his teachings.”
Killing the King
Thornley was deeply implicated in the strange and murky world of the assassination of JFK, which has often been suspected by conspiracy theorists as representing the ancient pagan right of killing the “sacred king.” Like Oswald, Kerry later served at Atsugi Air Base in Japan, the CIA’s headquarters in the Far East, as a radar technician, though they were not stationed at the same time. Kerry’s experience with the consequent mayhem and insubordination that predominated at the base was recounted in The Idle Warriors. While he seemed unaware of it, the rambunctious atmosphere was obviously the result of the unwitting use of LSD. Since the early 1950s, Atsugi served as one of two overseas field stations where the CIA conducted extensive MK-Ultra testing with LSD.
