Some shameless self-promotion

Last December I received an invitation from Travis Mateer (aka Will Skink) to have a podcast conversation, which I readily accepted. We ended up talking for 90 minutes, and as a result I have a long list of things I have to look into. Travis and I don’t agree on everything (“Where all think alike, no one thinks very much” – Walter Lippman), and I have pledged to keep an open mind on the things that we do not see eye-to-eye on.

I started the Piece of Mind blog in 2006 when I lived in Bozeman, Montana. At that time, the Montana blogosphere was very active, even somewhat influential. The Montana Democratic Party had moved into blogging forcefully with two apparatchiks, Jay Stevens and Matt Singer, who formed a blog called Left in the West. Their task, their raison d’etre in my view, was Jon Tester, who would be narrowly elected US Senator in 2006. Tester sold himself as an environmentalist and progressive, and then as quickly ditched both groups after attaining office. This led to a dip in his support, so that when he ran for reelection in 2012, he eked in due to dark money injected into his campaign. It was a very professional scam on the Montana Libertarian Party, using an industry front group called Montana Hunters and Anglers to run $2 million plus in advertising urging voters to support Dan Cox, Libertarian. Cox ended up with 6.6% of the vote, mostly drawn off Tester’s Republican opponent, Dennis Rehberg. This allowed Tester a victory with 48.6% of the vote.

A book review, Poisoning for Profits, by Commenter TimR

Click to access PoisoningForProfits.pdf

A few comments on Genereaux’s Vit. A toxicity hypothesis, after reading the eBook linked above (looks like I mispelled his name throughout, sorry bout that):

“Poisoning for Profit” is overall very compelling and persuasive, though of course it also raises new questions and areas where, as they say in the mainstream, “more research is needed.”

His critique of the early Vit A studies claiming to prove the dangers of Vit A deficiency is excellent. However, one of his arguments, that it doesn’t even fit with common sense or observation – animal species would rapidly go extinct if 4 to 8 weeks of Vit A deficiency led to rapid vision deterioration and all sorts of organ failure – seems like it could be applied to his own contention of Vit A toxicity.

Part 4: The Scent of Fear ~ Musings on Fear and Olfaction

“The plague was nothing; fear of the plague was much more formidable.”

~ Henri Poincaré, French mathematician and theoretical physicist (1854-1912)

Part 4 of the Series, “Of Monkeys, Mice and Men: From Natural Bodies to Digitized Bots”

Groundhog Day has passed, and regardless of whether or not “Punxsutawney Phil” saw his shadow, I am confronting and integrating shadows of myself in 2020 — a year in which a spell of the highest magnitude in modern history was cast upon global society. In terms of shadow work (and to echo Steve K’s recent spiritually-stirring POM post illuminating wetiko), it seems we have all been called to reconcile the “dark side” in others (the “collective shadow”), and even more crucially, within ourselves. Specifically, I have been reflecting on how I may be inadvertently conveying fear via my body language, my writing, and potentially even unconsciously through chemosignaling, discussed below (see also here and here). Amidst this self-reflection, my locale has been inundated with snow for weeks, and shoveling trails for my short-legged goats has taken a physical toll. Yet, most mornings I wake up to the birds sounding the call of spring. Their signaling serves as a message that the days are getting lighter, and life will look brighter very soon . . .

Speaking of signaling, the third installment in my series received mixed response. While it was a stretch in various regards, I hope that readers can absorb nuggets of information embedded therein, even if not accepting my hypothetical premise that a synthetic protein (encapsulated within a bio-nanotechnology vector termed a “vaccine”) can be horizontally transferred from person-to-person (which can translate as a “positive” via an RT-PCR amplification process), resulting in potentially iatrogenically-induced illness. 

That said, I would like to revisit the concept of contagion, coupled with the phenomenon of chemosignaling (a confirmed form of horizontal transfer in humans). One primary inspiration for my reflection came from a regular commenter at POM — Oregon Matt. Recently, he e-mailed me an excerpt from an exchange he had with Jim West (investigative scientific researcher of, where Jim stated as follows:

“I was told by a biologist via email that hormones have all the abilities of the regular nervous system (memory and ability to be affected by other hormones and systems etc, and to affect these other systems) — but hormones are slower and often mobile.”

Jim added his personal feedback:

They can be transmitted to other persons like ‘germs’ via coughing breathing talking touching. Which may be another reason why Big Bro wants us to be germphobes. And to view touch as a sin. Big Bro is jealous of any lateral communication. Hormones are another means of lateral communication . . . So there is an infectious element here, but ancient and with beneficial potential, related to ‘suggestion’ but with more detail. This could explain why people are innately repulsed by sick people and even lower classes like the ‘untouchables’ . . . 

So hormones could be suggesting solutions to illnesses or environmental hazards. Yawning is a purely psychological suggestion, but hormones give the details. Both modes are probably at work to give the impression of suggestion suggesting specific illness symptoms as remediation behavior or defense behavior when confronting environmental hazards. It is known that cells can change their behavior and physical structure on the fly, and this is claimed to be due to dynamic genetic transfer; bacteria do that. However, this effect might be describing hormonal material, which perhaps is what nucleic acid is in a sense.” (Re-printed herein with Jim’s consent, and his link for further clarification).

Institutionalized stupidity

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” (Albert Einstein)

I invite everyone to take a few minutes to read this post by Jon Rappoport, labeled Yes, the NY Times exposed the PCR Test. I generally avoid journalism, as I don’t have the stomach for human stupidity in its raw, institutionalized form. For instance, this piece from my home town by Juliana Sukut (get ready to be barraged by pop-ups if you follow the link) reports that there are 244 “new cases” of Covid-19 in Montana, a relatively sparsely populated state. Sukut has no clue what a “case” is, nor any idea of how testing is done or what the results mean. The standard etiquette in dealing with human stupidity is to ignore it, and look for the good. But the Covid-19 campaign at the top is being run by liars, and at the bottom by morons. I look around and sometimes, like now, just want to toss it all in and up, and read a detective mystery.

Wetiko, Collective Psychosis and Digital Slavery

Alison McDowell’s latest video explores ongoing research into genetically engineered (human) machines, “twinning” and the ramping up of “singularity” and the national security state.  Her latest blog entry prompted me to embark on my own exploration of what Native Americans (Cree) describe as wetiko.

I have been sent no less than five separate messages from friends, or links to blogs and websites in the past week; all referring to wetiko and its amazing parasitic influence on human behavior.  These converging signals constitute what is commonly called synchronicity, defined as “the simultaneous occurrence of events which appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.”  I ignored these events for decades.  I now take notice and move closer to explore these mysterious events. 

If you take the time to do a little exploring or your own, I think you will find the subject of wetiko both fascinating, and cathartic in the context of our current predicament.  Who knows, one more journey into the unknown may be “just that the doctor ordered.”

“A fish rots from the head down.” – Rumi

By now, we have all heard rumblings of Empire’s imminent collapse.  Propaganda can no longer hide the obvious fact that social, financial, cultural and political systems have failed miserably, and are still failing with no end in sight.   

Some collapseologists are observing something less apparent, which they describe as a “post-propaganda” phase or stage.Clearly, Empire is fighting for its life, overwhelmed by one institutional crisis after another in every bureau and department.What is left of Empire’s tattered unifying symbols? Is there much more remaining than a flag, national anthem and the Super Bowl to believe in? Even the national anthem was dispensed with at a recent NBA game in Dallas.

Propaganda can no longer serve as a unifying tool to rally the commoners behind their great ruler (hero) and transport the masses to a parallel universe where all agree on common purpose, shared history and a willingness to work toward a future vision which promises a new, “Golden Age.”   Instead, evidence of multiple grave crises afflicting the system surround us.  The advanced state of Empire’s decomposition (rotting from the head down) caused by malevolent and incompetent leadership is now self-evident.

John Wayne, The Duke (Gacy)

John Wayne Gacy’s profile

The moniker at the bottom of pages says that I printed out the Wickedpedia (AB’s term) write-up on John Wayne Gacy, the alleged serial killer, on December 6, 2020. At some point along the line I had stumbled upon him and saw that he was said to have had 33 victims. That signal in mind, I printed out the 51 page report, and began to absorb it. I wanted it to speak to me without my having preformed conclusions. I’ve been looking at it off and on, just letting it settle in.

Gacy’s known victims were young boys and men, the youngest 14 and the oldest 21. The killings took place from 1972 to 1978, and appear to have become more frequent as time went on. It is like an FBI profiler’s dream come true. In 2007 Malcolm Gladwell wrote about the art and science of profiling for The New Yorker, and I think he got it right, that it is an overblown hobby more often misdirecting than aiding in pursuit of a criminal. (Dangerous Minds.) Often enough, a profile can fit hundreds, if not thousands of potential suspects. But whoever wrote the tale of John Wayne Gacy was surely caught up on the idea. This is from Wiki:

“Gacy was close to his mother and two sisters, but endured a difficult relationship with his father, an alcoholic who was physically abusive to his wife and children.[8][9] His father also belittled him, calling him “dumb and stupid” and comparing him unfavorably with his sisters.[2] One of Gacy’s earliest memories was being beaten with a leather belt for accidentally disarranging car engine components his father had assembled.[10] His mother tried to shield her son from his father’s abuse, which only resulted in accusations that he was a “sissy” and a “Mama’s boy” who would “probably grow up queer“.[8][4][11] Despite his mistreatment, Gacy still loved his father,[9] but felt he was “never good enough” in his father’s eyes.[12]”

The Charlie Sheen Group

The path of discovery has been exciting these past years, from the day I stumbled on to the Miles Mathis site until today. There is always some strange phenomenon not before encountered and begging for explanation. I do not consider the fact that I do not have an explanation to be a problem. Maybe someday I will, or maybe someone will trip by here and drop a comment that clears things up. But for now, I am content to be in the dark, knowing what but not why.

The Charlie Sheen group is a name I gave to some movie stars whose faces are so like Charlie’s that were it not for other features like hair color and date of birth, I might think them the same people. First I am going to go through the list, and then at the end speculate about what is going on.

Bill Hicks became Alex Jones: Case Closed, Part 2

This post was originally published in August of 2016. There’s been an ongoing debate about the comedian Bill Hicks, who in my opinion faked his death and re-emerged as Alex Jones. Some of the drawbacks to this are facial differences, like a more pointed nose for Jones, easily done by plastic surgery, a thinner lower lip, ditto. In the first photo below, image three on the far right of Jones shows telltale lines indicating some plastic surgery. I have seen these as well on both McCartney’s, Paul and Mike.

However, the post below was a different story – someone had put up the two photos, one of Hicks and one of Jones, saying that Jones has a smaller mouth than Hicks, but what jumped out at me instead was that I was looking at identical teeth. Further down in the post you’ll see a Photoshop overlay in which every single tooth in both mouths line up exactly.

Another objection was voices, Hicks higher pitched than Jones, whose is almost guttural. I thought that for his TV show Jones could easily be speaking into some sort of voice distortion instrument, and that still might be the case. However, I was reading a Michael Connelly book (The Narrows) and in it the lead character, Harry Bosch, mentions that someone, a really bad guy, had probably had surgery to change his voice. I wondered if this was common.

Googling “surgery to change voice” I found it quite common, most often in women who want to sound more feminine. But there is thyroplasty surgery, which does indeed lower a man’s voice. I thought – what the heck – – the had Hicks under the knife for plastic surgery anyway, a makeover, so why not change his voice too?

From August, 2016:

My colleague Straight wants me to move forward, to get better at using PhotoShop. It offers a far wider array of possibilities than my current tools. I have been using them because I have so much work ahead, and don’t want to take time to learn such a big and complex program. But I must. Fortunately, Straight is already well-versed.

So, what’s more fun than talking about Beatles?

This video was posted in the comments under my Friday Tidbits piece, and has taken on a life of its own. So I decided to bring it front and center. It is loaded, and I mean loaded, with oddball things, but what caught my eye most was the appearance of original Paul McCartney, but only in brief shots, a few seconds each. He is mocking the Beatlemania days, doing the headbanging and woooos, all the while playing left-handed bass. Take a look at the screencap below the fold. The guy I say is Beatlemania Paul is circled in orange.
