There is another point. Although retarded signals from us r = 0 center vertical world line in above modified Fig 1.1c T.Davis 2004 PhD redshift to essentially zero frequency at our future horizon, static LNIFs near that horizon 
r ~ /^-1/2 need enormous off-geodesic acceleration
g(r) ~ c^2/^1/2(1 - / ^2)^-1/2 ---> infinity
from rocket engines in order to stay at fixed r, hence they see very hot Unruh radiation, which should not be confused with the very cold black body Hawking radiation of temperature /^1/2 coming from the horizon itself seen by all observers inside the horizon (with suitable Lorentz & GCTs). (h = c = G = kB = 1). This is analogous to the black hole case, but we need to be careful. We are inside our future cosmic horizon and can never get retarded signals from it. We are outside black hole horizons and can get retarded signals from in-falling matter outside it (e.g. accretion disk).

Dear James
Yes, you are raising points that must be addressed. 
However, it is clear to me, that the future r = 0 observer-dependent  dS horizon is the nearly WF perfect absorber (long wave limit). I suspect Kip Thorne's electrical membrane picture of the horizon as well as the Hawking mechanism need to be invoked to get a more complete conceptual picture of exactly how the total absorber works relative to the r = 0 observers in the static LNIF representation

g00 = - 1/grr = 1 - / ^2

g00 = 0 when / ^2 = 1

Note, this is not the representation where Q(t) = e^t/^1/2.

I hope to clean up these unresolved conceptual issues in the next few weeks.

With accelerating expansion it seems that the cosmic horizon becomes the boundary for retarded signals within, so one need not be concerned about horizon crossings and whether events beyond the horizon can affect events within the horizon via advanced signals.  From my perspective, that's the neat thing about accelerating expansion, for it cuts off interactionswith a finite upper bound.  From the HN and WF point of view, this may be problematic if insufficient absorbers lie along future light cones within the horizon.
It might be a good idea to await John Cramer's retrocausal signaling experiment results.  Should that produce curious results, the issue of perfect future absorption will become a bit more complicated.  :-)

I am not sure if Cramer's experiment can resolve this issue which exists even on the classical level without entanglement? - says Jack

Actually my original thought on all this about two years ago was very simple.

= e^t(dark energy density)^1/2
in the accelerating expanding universe retarded radiation toward the future is redshifted, advanced radiation toward the past is blue shifted.
The redshift at our future dark energy horizon a finite distance from us is infinite - this is effective absorption - vanishing of the real photon to almost zero frequency ( actually 10^10/10^28 ~ 10^-18 Hz). 
In microscopic terms, the Hawking mechanism - effective  geometrodynamical field ionization of virtual electron-positron pairs into real pairs with one particle beyond the 
r = 0 observer-dependent horizon and other particle inside it - effective plasma charge neutrality on both sides of the horizon - cause the return advanced signals back to the r = 0 emitter inside the cosmic horizon.
From the principle of horizon complementarity we don't give a hoot what an LIF at r ~ /^-1/2 crossing the horizon sees. What only matters is what we see at r = 0.  We each see a consistent picture, but it is not the same picture.

You are raising valid points to be squarely addressed I will study in coming weeks.
However, the key point to remember in all this is that the fact that we only see retarded EM waves and not advanced waves implies that we have a future perfect absorber and an imperfect past absorber in the context of the Wheeler Feynman QED. Therefore, our future dark energy de Sitter horizon must be in effect a kind of lumped parameter perfect future horizon since we cannot ever get any retarded signals from it - unlike the black hole case. Only advanced signals from beyond our future horizon can get to us as you point out correctly - and they come from future absorbers in other regions of the (Max Tegmark) Level 1 inflation bubble perhaps.
Multiverse

The fine points of Hoyle-Narlikar - e.g. the high k cutoff related to /, vacuum polarization are not easy to follow in detail. H-N assert they can do all zero point energy vacuum QED & radiative corrections from the FUTURE absorber influence functional in which the de Sitter horizon plays the key role. The light cone structure at the observer-dependent null-geodesic horizon is invariant for all observers LIF & LNIF at r = 0 in the static LNIF representation
g00 = - 1/grr = 1 - / ^2
where we are at r = 0 - note r = 0 is degenerate LIF = LNIF like static LNIF --> LIF at r ---> infinity in the Schwarzschild case.
Clearly quantum gravity Hawking mechanism needs to be included, i.e. all r = 0 observers see the horizon temperature /^1/2.  Kip Thorne's electrical membrane picture of horizons clearly is needed as some kind of lumped parameter model - the horizon being an effective barrier (hence its entropy) except for advanced signals.
On accelerating expansion - had they realized de Sitter is essentially same as Steady State in terms of future absorber they might have predicted dark energy. However, my main point is that since dark energy has w = -1 it is zero point vacuum virtual bosons therefore FROM THE FUTURE in the Wheeler-Feynman ---> H-N ---> Cramer type paradigm - no question of that, and the fact of only retarded EM means our dark energy de Sitter future event horizon is an AS IF effective perfect future absorber and our past particle horizon is imperfect.

Well, going through HN's paper, the issue of how far EM waves (or photons) propagate seems only incidental to most of their calculations
that center on processes.  This does come up on a couple of occasions
though.  For example, on page 126 at the end of the first full paragraph
they talk of "a future absorber of constant density and infinite extent"
being needed to get perfect absorption and fully retarded interactions. 
And in their discussion of a "cutoff at the absorber", at the bottom of
the first column on page 140, they allow that "l" has to go to infinity
to provide perfect absorption.

In any event, it is clear that in the action at a distance picture EM
waves propagate through horizons if the absorption events that provide
the advanced component needed to produce a fully retarded interaction
lies beyond the horizon.

I see nothing in HN's paper that suggests that they were on the verge of
asserting accelerating expansion.  It seems not to have been an issue for
them at all.  I suppose that it may have occurred to them -- and Narlikar
might be able to shed some light on this.  But their chief concern seems
to have been to show that the action at a distance picture could account
for EM processes encompassed by classical and quantum EM -- with the
added bonus of a cutoff due to a future horizon that obviates the need
for the renormalization program of QED.

As for the membrane picture, as I have understood it from my late friend,
Ron Crowley (who was a coauthor with Thorne on one of the chapters in the
book), the membrane was never intended to be taken as physically real. 
It was merely a way of sidestepping complicated internal processes that
made the math intractable.  As such, it is an explicitly fictitious
device to simplify calculations.

The reason why I have asserted that those taking the WF (or TI picture of
John Cramer) seriously should have predicted accelerating expansion stems
from a different consideration than those issues addressed in the 
HN
paper.  It is a consequence of the fact that horizons for normal 
retarded
interactions do not act as cutoffs for retarded-advanced (RA)
interactions.  The problem with this is particularly easy to see 
in the
context of gravity and inertial (as opposed to EM) -- especially 
in
Dennis Sciama's vector approximation to GR where he shows the 
condition
that obtains for inertial reaction forces to be produced by the
gravitational action of chiefly distant matter.  That depends on 
the
gravitoelectric field having, in analogy with EM, two terms.  One 
is the
usual gradient of the scalar potential.  The other is the time 
derivative
of the vector potential (with suitable coefficient).  The vector
potential is the integral of the matter current density, 
presumably out
to the particle horizon.  Sciama used a trick to avoid a messy
calculation involving retarded Green's functions, and got that 
the vector
potential is just the scalar potential times the velocity of an
accelerating test particle where the inertial reaction force is 
to be
evaluated.  And since the vector potential thus goes as 1/r, 
Sciama
identified this as a radiational process.

If the process is radiational, and if inerital reaction forces 
are
instantaneous (as they are), then clearly a WF process must be 
involved. 
But WF processes do not respect horizons (particle, event, or 
otherwise).
So cutting off the interaction at the particle (or other) horizon 
is
something you have to do to get a reasonable result, even if you 
haven't
got a compelling physical reason for doing so (other than it 
works). 
This is what I was getting at in Killing Time.

As an experimentalist chiefly interested in building stuff and 
trying to
get it to work, I assumed that there must be a plausible 
explanation for
this problem and went on with my experimental program.  Only when 
reading
Brian Greene's Fabric of the Cosmos (in which Mach's principle 
features
prominently) did I happen upon the explanation of the cutoff I 
had
assumed must exist: accelerating expansion -- as explained in a 
footnote
by Greene here attached.

It may be possible to write down a consistent WF action at a 
distance
theory that encompasses classical and quantum EM without 
accelerating
expansion.  Though, if you are right, then this isn't so.  I 
expect it is
impossible to get Mach's principle to work, however, without 
accelerating
expansion to cut off the gravitational interaction at a finite 
upper
bound.  While gravity and EM are analogous in many ways, gravity 
is not
just EM in disguise.

The key mathematically is

exponential scale function

Q(t) = e^/^1/2t

and constant density  / = (area of future horizon)^-1

Hawking temperature of horizon = /^1/2

(using h = c = G = kB = 1)


Kip Thorne shows that horizons are electrical membranes - 
peculiar 
quantum effects at horizons - the Hawking mechanism pulls 
virtual 
electron positron pairs out of the vacuum - one charge goes 
behind 
the horizon the other in front of it - these charges both can 
absorb 
photons. 

Horizon complementarity may play a role here - for LIFs falling 
through the horizon the explanation you give here may be 
appropriate, however for us at r = 0 the electrical membrane 
picture 
may be the appropriate explanation.

However, this is the key point, it's only because there is such 
an 
observer-dependent horizon with dark energy density / that we 
have 
retarded radiation without any net advanced radiation. If / = 0 

then we would see advanced signals.

Lots of diversions, so I'm still reading, but almost done.  It 
seems
clear though that HN, while allowing that there is a future 
event
horizon, understand that the perfect absorber need not be 
located 
within
or at the horizon.  That is, EM waves, or photons, can 
propagate 
beyond
that horizon and that their absorption beyond the horizon will
nonetheless produce the requisite advanced disturbance required 

for the
action at a distance theory to work.  

James what precise text in HN lead you to conclude that?

That is correct.  Anywhere an EM
disturbance can get to, no matter what horizons crossed, the 
advanced
wave produced by absorption processes make it back to the 
origin 
of the
disturbance.  So, NH's lone photon propagating at/near a 
deSitter 
horizon
-- which nearby inertial observers (NInOs) see tooling along at 

speed c
-- if the principle of mediocrity is correct (and spacetime is 
much the
same everywhere allowing for large scale evolution) -- will not 

encounter
a material absorber at the horizon and likely pass on through 
--
notwithstanding that a distant inertial observer (DInO) near 
the 
point of
emission will "see" the photon infinitely redshifted at the 
horizon. 
When it is eventually absorbed, the advanced disturbance 
propagates time
reversed down its worldline to the source.

I'm going to finish the paper before commenting on accelerating
expansion.  :-)


Q(t) = e^/^1/2t  means accelerating expansion - necessary for 
net 
retarded causality.

Let me clarify - whether or not there is a quantum electrical 
total 
absorber relative to us at the horizon is not the point - my 
only 
claim is that it is AS IF there is one there. 

The key here is that different observers in GR do not 
necessarily 
have the same quantum vacuum - unitarily inequivalent vacua.

However, your argument requires the multiverse of Max Tegmark's 
levels 1 & 2 in order to work, which is also interesting.

The point of the paper is that only the deSitter solution

"Einstein-de Sitter" is not the "de Sitter" solution - look at

rho(t).

The key formulas are Q(t) = e^Ht  & rho(t) = constant = /

Actually my original thought on all this about two years ago was very simple.

1 + z = ke/ka = Q(ta)/Q(te)
a = absorption

z > 0 redshift
in dS metric
Q(t) = e^t(dark energy density)^1/2
in the accelerating expanding universe retarded radiation toward the future is redshifted, advanced radiation toward the past is blue shifted.
Note units are h = c = G = kB = 1.
The redshift at our future dark energy horizon a finite distance from us is infinite - this is effective absorption - vanishing of the real photon to almost zero frequency ( actually 10^10/10^28 ~ 10^-18 Hz).

Apocalypse Now?

Posted by: JackSarfatti |
Tagged in: Untagged 

Problem is thermodynamics. We cannot sustain projected population 9 billion + at current energy levels of consumption even if we have zero point energy because of the waste heat that would really cause extreme global warming - there may be one loop hole however to eliminate the waste heat. In any case planet is too crowded for quality of life for all. Only happy solution short of mass extinction is star gates to parallel unpopulated Earth type planets on similar solar systems.

If we have a Haisch-Moddell zero point energy generator operating between a cold positive temperature and a hot negative quantum spin temperature then all the waste heat Qcold is converted to useful work.

W/Qhot= 1 + |Tcold/Thot| > 100%

This might prevent global warming from waste heat, but we would still be overcrowded and quality of life would diminish severely.

The basic idea on Coast to Coast

Mar 11

Leonard Susskind and I were graduate students together at Cornell and we worked with Jonathan Glogower on the problem of time in quantum theory. Susskind in his book "Cosmic Landscape" says that the problem of why the dark energy density is so small is a major challenge in physics today. I suggest that Susskind's own holographic conjecture is the answer once the role of Wheeler-Feynman advanced influences from our future horizon is recognized. Sean Carroll's arrow of time problem ("From Eternity to Here"), i.e., why we age as the universe gets bigger, is also automatically solved because the entropy of our observable universe is the area of our future horizon that is 1 BIT at the moment of inflation saturating at the asymptotically constant de Sitter value of ~ 10^123 BITs because of the finite speed of light in the accelerating universe

Geodesic detectors do not covariantly accelerate, therefore they do not see the Unruh flux, but they will see the thermal photons from the surface gravity of the black hole horizon since the evaporation of the black hole is an objective frame-independent process. 
We are outside black hole horizons, but inside both our past and future cosmological horizons.
                 Our future and past cosmological horizons
The idea is that we are 3D hologram image projections of 2D hologram patterns on our future horizon. This is analogous to what a static LNIF observer would see when matter falls into a black hole before the redshift makes blacks out the light signals from the horizon. The freely-falling matter appears to delocalize spreading out over the black hole event horizon surface, e.g. Leonard Susskind's "black hole complementarity" - even though the freely falling observers will not notice anything catastrophic as they fall through (neglect tidal forces for large enough black holes). Of course static LNIF's at fixed r > 2GM/c^2 will see the Unruh temperature
kBT ~ hc/A^1/2 + h(GM/cr^2)(1 - 2GM/c^2r)^-1/2
Note that the geodesic observer is equivalent to the LNIF at r ---> infinity
therefore, even the geodesic observer sees the black hole evaporate - it's objective
the term hc/A^1/2 is analogous to the zero point energy term in the Bose-Einstein black body distribution
where 
A = 16pi(GM/c^2)^2

 

Mar 10

As pointed out by physicist Professor Bernard Carr of the University of London in his June 2008 published paper, I have been working on the Wheeler-Feynman advanced potential electrodynamical interpretation of the dark energy Einstein cosmological constant accelerating the expansion speed of space. Hoyle and Narlikar showed that the zero point virtual photons thought to be the dominant component of dark energy are from the advanced electromagnetic potentials emitted by the perfect future absorber in a consistent loop in time called a "transaction" by Professor John Cramer of the University of Washington. I suggest that our observer-dependent future cosmological de Sitter horizon is a Wheeler-Feynman perfect absorber. The virtual photon dark energy density we measure from the anomalous redshifts of Type 1a supernovae in our past light cone are complementary to advanced Hawking blackbody Unruh radiation of real photons from the surface gravity of our future horizon of 10^123 Bekenstein BITs that obeys the t'Hooft-Susskind holographic principle. All objects in our 3D material observable universe piece of the multiverse are retro-causal 3D hologram images of 2D patterns on our future cosmological de Sitter horizon that we are inside of is the idea I proposed in the 2009 paper with Creon Levit. This is consistent with S-Matrix unitarity that information is not fundamentally lost.

SARFATTI’S ILLUMINATI: IN THE THICK OF IT!
By Jack Sarfatti
Copyright (c) Jack Sarfatti, 1992, 1995
Update from Jan. 29, 1996
—————————————————————-
Jim Garrison and Tom Jenkins from Gorbachev Foundation hosted a
fun-filled birthday party for Nina Kucharev on this past Saturday
night on the third floor of my office at 3220 Sacramento Street
in San Francisco. Tom Jenkins is a former physicist who arranges
much of the logistics for Jim Garrison, such as Boris Yeltsin’s
visit to the USA before he became President of Russia. Tom and I
had an interesting conversation in which we both noted the
amazing patterns of synchronicity linking physicists interested
in consciousness, extra-terrestrial intelligence, remote-viewing
and other fringe areas with the pivotal events that ended the
Cold War. Danny Sheehan, who also visits our office, was
co-founder with Garrison, of the now defunct Christic Institute,
a casualty of the Iran-Contra operation. Sheehan, has had
childhood “close encounter experiences” analogous to the one I
reported in “The Parsifal Effect.” Evidently, it might appear
that Dan Sheehan, was also part of the “400″ contactees mentioned
to me on the phone in 1952 by the alleged “conscious computer” on
the spacecraft from the future. Harvard Professor John Mack,
influential in the Esalen-Soviet Exchange Program, and under fire
from Harvard for his bold study of UFO abductees, is also, it
might appear, part of the “400.”
Curiously, my writings influenced, in a sort of Forrest Gump way,
forces on the opposing side to Garrison and Sheehan. Now we are
all partying together like Tim Leary and Gordon Liddy appearing
on the same stage in their intellectual vaudeville act. It is as
if Umberto Ecco’s _Foucault’s Pendulum_ has passed from fiction
to fact in this latest version of Balzac’s Human Comedy
orchestrated by John Lilly’s “Cosmic Coincidence Control” from
the future. This is more than the random “Butterfly Effect” of
classical chaos theory. It suggests Fred Hoyle’s idea that the
initial quantum fluctuation amplified by classical chaos is
intelligently manipulated and shaped by advanced starwaves from
the future. Indeed, Tom’s role with the Gorbachev-Yeltsin
circles paralleled mine with the Reagan Administration via  Lawry
Chickering’s Institute for Contemporary Studies and the  second
channel of influence opened by Cap Weinberger’s son.
Michael and Dulce Murphy came to the party and I was impressed
with Michael’s description to me of Dulce’s recent efforts to
narrow the growing rift between Russian and US foreign policy by
catalyzing communication and dialogue between the future leaders
of both countries. Michael is the author of _The End To Ordinary_
History which covers some events similar to those described here.
As Jim Garrison accurately said, stabilizing Russia today is not
as “sexy” as it was a few years ago and, as Michael Murphy
pointed out “Russia still has 20,000 nuclear warheads.” The
influence of former KGB in the new Russian Mafia is of course a
major fact to be reckoned with.
Update from Sept 25, 1995 San Francisco Chronicle, pp.A, 15-17.
By Edward Epstein
“… Gorbachev Foundation USA has organized the ‘State of the
World Forum’ … a five year process of consultation that will
meet annually until the year 2000 … About 500 people are
expected to attend …. these will include … Milton Friedman,
… David Packard and Ted Turner… Jane Fonda… Jane
Goodall,… Carl Sagan … princes from Saudi Arabia … Deepak
Chopra…. Gorbachev will be joined by … George Bush ….
Margaret Thatcher … ‘Gorbachev believes we are giving birth to
a new global civilization,’ said Jim Garrison, executive director
of the Gorbachev Foundation which occupies waterfront offices in
San Francisco’s Presidio.
“Leaders of mainline Western religions or philosophies are mostly
absent from the speaker’s lineup, while unorthodox describes many
on the list. These include … Willis Harman, President of the
Institute of Noetic Sciences … he conducted experiments on the
effects of psychedelic drugs on human creativity …. Jerry
Mander, now an anti-technology author ….”
It was the night before the first Birkbeck test of Uri Geller.
Brendan was visibly nervous. He asked me to go with him to see
the Soviet science fiction film _Solaris_. Brendan had mentioned
that Olaf Stapeldon’s science fiction story _Star Maker_, about
a time traveling super-intelligence, was based upon real
experiences that a high member of British Intelligence [1] had in
the nineteen thirties. The big day arrived. Arthur C. Clarke [2]
was there with a high official from Rolls Royce. Arthur Koestler
[3] was also there along with John Hasted [4], David Bohm and a
few others. These events have been described by Martin Gardner
[5] and I will not discuss them here. What happened after the
tests is more important. If I remember correctly, Brendan and I
went with Uri to his hotel room where I met Andrija Puharich [6],
Sir John Whitmore and, perhaps, Ira Einhorn [7]. I could be wrong
about Einhorn [8]. I startled Uri by asking him if he could
trigger a nuclear weapon by psychokinesis. I later found out from
Ron Mc Rae [9] that some of our intelligence people were greatly
concerned about that possibility. I may have initiated that
concern because I had mentioned it several times to large groups
of people at several meetings.
I was back in Paris several weeks later with Sharon. Fred Wolf
said: “Jack, I’m going to introduce you to a man who will change
your life.” Fred took me and Sharon to the swank Ritz Hotel. We
waited in the lobby and a guy who looked like Richard Gere [10]
in a jump suit walks in with a woman. He says: “Hi, I’m Werner
Erhard.” I had never heard of the guy. I said, “What do you do?”
Werner replied: “I make people happy.” I thought, “Why am I
wasting time with this yo yo?” And, hoping to make a quick exit,
said in a sassy Damon Runyon manner, “Oh yeah, I think you must
be some kind of an asshole!” Werner’s face became positively
radiant and he cracked a Mephistophelian [11] smile, embraced me
saying: “I will give you money when you come to San Francisco.” I
was taken aback by an unexpected offer I could not refuse. I was
under contract with E.P. Dutton by then and was planning to go to
Chicago to finish _Space-Time and Beyond_ at Bob Toben’s place.
Werner then outlined his plan for me to set up a sort of Ghost
Busters team of physicists to research psychic phenomena and in
his words “the physics of consciousness.” Werner said that he was
very interested in physics and that he wanted me and Fred Wolf to
tutor him and his “trainers.”
We flew to New York. Sharon and I spent a few days with Uri
Geller, Ira Einhorn, Bob Toben, Sir John Whitmore and Andrija
Puharich at Puharich’s large house in Ossining. Puharich gave me
his book _URI_. I did not have time to read it but I gave it to
my mother in Brooklyn a few days later. My mother was reading the
book [12] when she suddenly exclaimed: “Jacky, Jacky, this is
what happened to you!” “What happened to me? What are you talking
about Ma?” “The computer in the flying saucer that called you on
the telephone when you were a little boy. Don’t you remember when
you got all those phone calls?” An electric shock went through me
– I only remember one phone call. “What do you mean phone calls?
I only got one call.” “No you didn’t! Jacky, what’s the matter
with you? You got three weeks of these crazy calls. You were on
the phone for hours at a time walking around glassy-eyed. I got
worried and grabbed the phone away from you. I said, ‘Who is
this? Why are you calling my son?’ I heard that voice. It said
it was a computer. It wanted you to come back to the telephone. I
said, ‘Don’t you call back here again,’ and hung up and that was
that.” Not even a super-technological conscious computer on
board  a flying saucer from the future can argue with an irate
Jewish Mother!
Bob Toben drove Sharon and me down to Philadelphia. We stayed
with my literary agent Ira Einhorn and his doomed girl friend
Holly Maddux [13]. Ira took us to the mainline mansion of  Arthur
Young. Young was the inventor of the Bell Helicopter and was a
close friend of Charles Lindbergh. Young’s wife was an heiress of
the Forbes Steel fortune. Young financed the Institute for the
Study of Consciousness in Berkeley California. He invited me to
stay there. Einhorn told me he would introduce me to Stewart
Brand, Michael Murphy [14] and George Leonard [15] when I got to
San Francisco. He was very concerned about what he called “Soviet
breakthroughs in psychotronic weapons of mind control at a
distance using ELF and sound waves.” He said he had support from
the local telephone company and from the Bronfman [16] in Toronto
to link up visionary scientists like myself. He also said he was
working with Jacques Vallee [17] and Brendan O Regan on a UFO
data base. Ira mentioned that he was working with Congressman
Charlie Rose (D. North Carolina) of the House Select Committee on
Intelligence [18]. Rose confirmed his connection to Einhorn in a
telephone conversation with me.
Werner was as good as his word and promptly had his EST
Foundation write me an initial $5,000 check (Autumn 1974).
Einhorn did his job as my literary agent and arranged a meeting
at Arthur Young’s Institute in Berkeley that included Michael
Murphy, Hazel Henderson [19] and another physicist, Saul Paul
Sirag [20], who was Barbara Honegger’s [21] lover. Werner gave me
free run of his organization which I found rather odd. The
estoids all seemed to be glassy-eyed and very creepy [22]. One in
particular, Raz Ingrasci, talked about Werner as if he were
God-incarnate. One day Raz said he would jump out of a high
window if Werner ordered him to. One day I noticed a table with a
sign that said “Bulgarian Desk” [23]. There were a lot of pretty
young women who were easily available since I was known as one of
Werner’s special friends — a Prince of the Court. Werner was
always very warm with me and invited me to many dinners both at
Franklin House and at expensive restaurants. He never carried any
money or credit cards. We were always escorted (in a Mercedes) by
a security team, who also paid all the bills.
A former student of physicist John Wheeler [24], Robert Fuller
was head of Werner’s Foundation. Fuller had been President of
Oberlin College but had suffered a mid-life crisis and had fallen
under Werner’s influence. Fuller now heads the World Watch
Institute in Washington. Fuller [25] was jealous of Werner’s
fondness for me and that this was a factor precipitating my
falling out with Werner. I was worried about the crypto-Nazi feel
of the est-org, but I had hoped that Werner would get his
intellectual act together and say something of genuine interest
in terms of physics and philosophy. I was not at all subservient
to Werner in his presence like most of the academics that
surrounded and apparently adored him. Some of them called him the
“new Heidegger” [26]. Professor Irwin Corey [27] made more sense.
There was a lot of talk of Werner running for President one day.
Werner said he would appoint me to be head of the National
Science Foundation. Werner’s brother Nathan Rosenberg was in the
Navy as an aide to President Carter’s Secretary of Defense Harold
Brown [28]. Kevin Garvey [29] told me that Werner had fifteen
loyal estoids in the Carter White House. Werner was very active
with the training of government people in Washington D.C. Carter
[30] had created Project Scanate [31] for remote-viewing of
military targets by psychics. Werner used remote-viewing in his
training, and he also contributed money to SRI for that project.
Sidney was a close friend of the late Bishop Pike. Werner had me
meet with several Stanford and U.C. Faculty before he set up the
Physics Consciousness Research Group at Esalen with me and
Michael Murphy as co-directors. Michael arranged all our
activities in Big Sur. Saul Paul Sirag [32] was my chief
assistant. Michael arranged for Jean Lanier to supply me with
money. Jean, who resembled Shirley MacLaine [33], was the widow
of the late Chairman of the Board of Stone-Webster Engineering.
Her current husband was an Episcopal Priest, Sidney Lanier.
Sidney was a close friend of the late Bishop Pike. He was active
in New York off-broadway theater. Sidney was also a close friend
of Jose Ferrer, who I resemble. Jean rented a five bedroom suite
for us on top of Nob Hill [34]. She was a close friend of
Laurance Rockefeller who would telephone the Nob Hill flat
looking for her.
I attended the EST April Celebrity Training of 1975. The list of
trainees included Ellie Coppola, Sterling Hayden [35], Michael
Murphy, Buzz Aldrin [36], Ted Ashley [37], the late Jerry Rubin
[38], Fred Wolf, Saul Paul Sirag and many others. Sterling Hayden
quickly walked out calling Werner a “Nazi” as he pushed away some
estoids who tried to block his passage. Michael Murphy was
visibly upset and angry at his close friend Werner. I was sitting
with Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who was having a severe kidney
problem. Werner got all confused when he tried to talk about the
new physics. He let me explain to the group in ordinary language
what he was trying to say in his hypnotic _estspeak_.
The trick of est is to seduce your consciousness by subverting
the English language with dominating psycho-babble. It was right
out of George Orwell’s 1984. The est-training did get every one
high. It must have been how the SS officers felt after being
indoctrinated as leaders of the Master Race.
I was introduced to Ellie Coppola during a break in the training.
She had just read _Space-Time and Beyond_. Ellie invited Fred
Wolf and me to her home at 2800 Broadway at 2am after the
training. We met her husband Francis Ford Coppola. The first
thing Francis said to me was that he did not like Werner Erhard
but that he would not tell his wife what to do. Francis has fine
moral instincts. I was getting suspicious of Werner [39]
especially after I heard the rumor that he said he changed his
name from Jack Rosenberg to Werner Erhard to “give up Jewish
weakness for German strength.”
I started to spend a lot of time at the Coppola’s house. I
introduced them to Uri Geller and to Einhorn’s friend, French UFO
scientist Jacques Vallee [40]. I think Steven Spielberg and
George Lucas were there as well that time but I am not sure.
Vallee became technical consultant to _Close Encounters of the
Third Kind_ as a result of that introduction. Francois Trauffaut
[41] played the role of Jacques Vallee in the Spielberg film. Ira
Einhorn had introduced me to Vallee. Einhorn and Vallee were
working together on a computer network project that anticipated
the Internet. Einhorn originally introduced me to Hazel
Henderson, Arthur Young, Stewart Brand and Michael Murphy.
Einhorn at Esalen is described by Willian Irwin Thompson in _The
Edge of History_. Congressman Charlie Rose (D. North Carolina) of
the House Committee on Intelligence confirmed to me by telephone
that Ira was involved in National Security operations. Ira, like
O.J. Simpson, always claimed he was framed by “the KGB.” It is
curious that he was never found. Ira spent weeks at Esalen after
he was indicted for the murder of Holly Maddux. Senator Arlen
Specter was his defense attorney and one of the Bronfmans from
Toronto allegedly paid his legal fees.
I met Jack Nicholson [42], Michael Douglas, Milos Forman, Saul
Zaentz and Hans Syberberg [43] at various parties at the
Coppola’s Broadway mansion and at Tomasso’s Restaurant in North
Beach where Francis would bake the pizza in the wood-burning
oven. Francis was running CITY Magazine. Ellie had Raisa
Gustaitus do an article about our Esalen Group called “Faster
than the speeding photon.” I first met Stephen Schwartz [44] at
CITY where he was assisting Warren Hinckle [45]. I once walked
into the Caffe Trieste with Francis when Steve Turner walked up
to him and aggressively pushed him calling him a “dirty dog.”
Francis floored Turner with one punch. My meeting with Hans
Syberberg at Francis’s showing of _Our Hitler_ is of particular
importance because it involved a man named “Putzi.”
I received a phone call from a man named George Koopman [46]
during one of our Esalen seminars in 1976. He asked if he could
come to Big Sur. I said yes. Koopman soon became a financial
patron of my _Ghost Busters_ [47] at Esalen. Koopman was a  close
friend of Dan Akroyd [48], and my group was the  inspiration for
the film Ghost Busters. He provided money  through military
contracts with the Air Force and the U.S.  Army Tank Command
funnelled through his company Insgroup in  Irvine, California.
Koopman was addicted to cocaine and would talk freely when high.
He told us that he was related to Arthur Krock, the publisher of
the New York Times. He said that he had blown the whistle on U.
S. Army Intelligence domestic spying to the New York Times.
Koopman said that he had worked on the “kook desk” for the
Defense Intelligence Agency and that they were very interested in
the kind of new physics we were working on. They were especially
interested in machines that could tell the future [49] and in new
kinds of aircraft propulsion systems. Koopman liked to show how
he could open locked doors with his burglar tools that he always
carried in his brief case. He showed me a letter from the
military giving him permission to have the tools.
Koopman was very interested in Werner Erhard’s tax structure. I
took Koopman to meet Werner. Werner was in a room with a large
blackboard. On the board were several references to “UFOs” and
“extra-terrestrial contacts.” Werner did not seem to trust
Koopman.
I found out through one of my girlfriends [50] that Koopman
succeeded in spying on the Arica organization. Koopman, Sirag and
I had heard weird stories from Jan Brewer at Esalen that Arica
was started in Chile by high ranking fugitives from the Third
Reich who were masters of the occult. Many of the regulars at
Esalen, including some of our group like Dr. John Lilly [51] and
Claudio Naranjo [52] had been in the first Arica training in
Chile. Timothy Leary was released from prison. Leary became part
of my group at Esalen. Leary was a close friend of Michael
Murphy. George Koopman arranged for Leary and me to lecture
together at the Arthur Young’s Institute in Berkeley. Koopman
spent a lot of money hiring a professional T.V. crew to record
us. Robert Anton Wilson, Nick Herbert and Saul Paul Sirag
participated in this event. Koopman became Leary’s business
manager and publisher. Leary’s message was SMI2LE (Space
Migration Intelligence Increase Life Extension) which is also the
message of this book.
Koopman sabotaged me at Esalen by suddenly breaking his contract
and stopping the cash flow he had committed. The ostensible
reason was that I had insulted the New Age seminarians at Esalen
by calling them “idiots and morons,” which I did. Werner would
say much worse in his trainings. Koopman was very high when he
confronted me with this supposed sin. Koopman would show up at
the Caffe Trieste on several occasions years later. Koopman was
apparently ordered by higher ups to cut me out of the Esalen
picture because I was too much of a “loose cannon” that they
could not control. They replaced me with my assistant Saul Paul
Sirag and with Nick Herbert who continued to run the Esalen
seminars. It may be that Koopman’s death in 1989 was no accident.
That’s just a hunch. Chipman’s death around the same time as
Koopman’s may also not have been from natural causes.
I walked into the Caffe Trieste one day in 1979. A young girl,
Maiti, said she had written a poem about me. We soon started
dating. She said her father was a “senior policy planner” in the
government, but she did not agree with his politics and had
briefly been in the Weatherman. She showed me a photograph of her
Grandfather, who was a German General (Rudel) during World War
Two. Her father had met her mother while on Army duty after the
war. One day her father telephoned and said that he heard that
the Philadelphia Incident [53] was really true. Maiti mentioned
that her father had ET contacts as a child like I had. Her father
was an Arabic-speaking expert in Middle-East affairs with high
level contacts. He once sent me a manuscript on the Qabala and
the mystical union between Judaism, Christianity and Islam. One
day Maiti showed me a copy of a letter that her father, Robert
Dickson Crane [54], wrote of his friend Anthony Weiner at the
Hudson Institute. The letter [55] says in part:
“Another individual, who may be just plain crazy but also has a
slight chance, in my view of being another Einstein, is Jack
Sarfatti, who is plugging his ‘faster than light’ quantum physics
… The reason I am interested in Sarfatti’s ideas is that the
full potential of negentropy in human thought can be realized
only if Sarfatti is right. …Assuming that Sarfatti is wrong …
the insights of Minsky and of your own cerebration offer about
all that the state of the artificial intelligence art can handle
for the next decade anyway. If Sarfatti should ever prove to be
right, then our work on negentropy in human thought would have
created the tools for tapping whatever potential there is in the
‘new physics.’”
I recently had breakfast with Maiti in the Haight-Ashbury. She
said her father had recently converted to Islam and wanted to be
the first US Army Islamic Chaplain. She also said that her father
was a close friend of conservative Pat Buchanan. Herb Caen, in
the March 4, 1996 San Francisco Chronicle, cites a wag on the GOP
“First they gave us a guy who says ‘Read my lips,” now they give
us a guy who says “Read _Mein Kampf_.’” 
Crane’s remarks are not that different from Martin Gardner’s [56]
published statement:
“In recent years Sarfatti has been promoting an invention ….
designed to transmit coded information faster than light. I know
of no other physicist who thinks it will work. If it does,
Sarfatti will become one of the greatest physicists of all time.”
I now think that the actual designs I had for faster-than-light
communication devices back in 1979 would not have worked. I was
remote-viewing my future design with a low signal to noise ratio.
Nick Herbert also published a design that would not have worked.
I think that today in 1992 I do have a design that will work that
I will explain later on. Only experiment will decide. The point
here is that if my weird physics turns out to be right, then it
is evidence for my being a contactee of either alien
extra-terrestrials or advanced humans or artificial intelligences
from our future. If my physics turns out to be wrong, then I am
just plain nuts [57], and you wasted your money on rubbish — but
perhaps you had fun on the way. I feel like Zorba the Greek in
this matter — if you remember the last scene of the movie you’ll
get my meaning.
My adventures with two more women during this period are worth
mentioning before moving on to the next Act. One named Crystal
picked me up in the Caffe Trieste. She was a statuesque blonde in
a low cut green evening dress. Crystal said she belonged to a
Coven of Beautiful Witches [58], who wanted me to be their
Warlock. This was not so crazy in Frisco back then. After we made
love she introduced me to a real nut who called himself Damian
Zarrow. He said he was from Esalen and that he was in contact
with extra-terrestrials and that he was testifying before a
Senate Committee. I later found out that Crystal knew another
girl friend of mine from Esalen named Betty Andreason. I have
since heard of a woman by that name, who claims to have been
abducted by UFOs. I don’t know if its the same woman.
In view of the present-day Esalen-Erhard-Yeltsin-Gorbachev
connections [59], the 1979 Esalen-UFO connection is significant.
Even though I had split with Werner Erhard by late 1977, EST’s
Raz Ingrasci phoned me and asked me to meet with Jenny O Conner.
Raz said that Jenny had been sent to Werner by Sir John Whitmore
who had funded Andrija Puharich’s collaborations with Uri Geller
back in 1973. Jenny claimed to be channeling messages from “The
Nine” — the same extra-terrestrials that Puharich wrote about.
In view of my own contact in 1952 I should have been more
diplomatic with Jenny when she came to my apartment at 2 Whiting
Place — the apartment that Michael Murphy had given me. Jenny
impressed me as total fraud, and I practically kicked her out. I
was verbally very rude. Jenny and The Nine [60] was promptly
installed at Esalen for quite some time overlapping with visits
by the late physicist Heinz Pagels, Congressman Charlie Rose,
Ira Einhorn, and high ranking Russians from Georgy Arbatov’s
Moscow Institute of US and Canada, which was influential during
Gorbachev’s watch.
Soviet Officials at Esalen in late 70’s and early 80’s:
* Valentin M. Berezhkov [61]
* Yuri A. Zamoshkin [62]
* Andrey A. Kokoshin [63]
* Henrikas Jushkevitshus [64]
* Vladimir M. Kuznetsov
* Victor M. Pogostin [65]
* Vlail P. Kaznacheyev
* Joseph Goldin [66]
This list is not complete. Vladimir Posner is an important fellow
in all this according to Schwartz and Tinkerman. The fact
remains, the iron post of observation that a bunch of apparently
California New Age flakes into UFOs and psychic phenomena,
_including myself_, had made their way into the highest levels of
the American ruling class and the Soviet Union and today run the
Gorbachev Foundation.
Did these influential Russian policy pundits get high in the hot
tubs of Esalen as has been alleged by right-wing theorists? My
current lady friend, who was living near Esalen at the time, and
spent a lot of time there with Richard Feynman, says that drugs
were not used in the Soviet-Esalen Exchange. If they got high,
it was the magic of Esalen and the meditative serenity of the
incredible natural environment and spiritual stimulation that
Michael Murphy has catalyzed over the years.
Was Jan Brewer telling the truth about the Fourth Reich using
Arica to influence the New Age? Brewer was part of the original
Esalen group of forty that went to Chile for the first Arica
training with Oscar Ichazo [67]. Arica was big at Esalen at the
same time that the Soviets were soaking in the hot tubs. Was I
pulled out of the operation by George Koopman because in his
opinion I was unpredictable and uncontrollable? Or is the truth
still even stranger than even I can imagine? Was Michael Murphy a
brilliant Puppet Master or merely a lucky charming “useful
idiot,” a Forrest Gump character like me? Was Ira Einhorn framed?
Was Jean Nadal murdered? Was Francois Trauffaut murdered? Was
Harold Chipman [68] murdered? Was George Koopman murdered? Is
this all my Walter Mitty paranoid exaggeration? What do you
think?
Footnotes:
[1] It is curious that the quote from I. J. Good is about such an
intelligence. Good worked with Alan Turing during W.W.II on
MKULTRA, which broke the Nazi war codes with the Enigma machine.
A curious exchange happened between Good and myself. I wrote
another paper for Psychoenergetic Systems. Good sent me a copy of
his paper on super-intelligence. The two papers were remarkably
similar. So similar that Good suspected me of plagiarism –
though he did not go so far as to accuse me. In fact, I had not
seen Good’s paper until he sent me a copy of it. I take this as
evidence for a close encounter with super-intelligence lending
some credibility to my 1952 phone call from the computer.

reputation of being very left wing and sympathetic to the Soviet
Union. I never encountered this aspect directly in the physics
department. Bernal wrote a very important essay, “The World, The
Flesh and The Devil,” in the 1930’s about super-intelligence in
the far future.

Andrija Puharich as well as with Esalen’s Michael Murphy and
George Leonard.

Einhorn is still at large as a fugitive from justice. He may be
innocent of the murder of Holly Maddux. Opening up KGB files
might tell the truth.
[8] I recall meeting Einhorn and Puharich in London when I stayed
with Brendan O Regan at Joyce Petchek’s palatial mansion which
had its own olympic-sized swimming pool in the basement. Joyce
was a Jewish American Princess who “channeled” an ancient
Egyptian Princess. I may have angered her when it became obvious
I was more interested in her erotic body than her auric body
during her private seance with me. I felt like Groucho Marx in
_Animal Crackers_. Joyce, Brendan and I made a pilgrimage to
Paris to see Carlo Suares in the spring of 1974.

[14] Michael Murphy told me that he and his brother were the
models for the brothers in John Steinbeck’s _East of Eden_.
Steinbeck was a close friend of Michael’s grandfather who owned
the coastal land that Esalen is built on. Michael gave me his
apartment on 2 Whiting Street on Telegraph Hill. Michael is very
charming and appears to be very naive. He was most likely a
“useful idiot” of the KGB in the “psychic war raging across the
continents between the Soviet Union and your country” (as Dennis
Bardens described it in the Blue Boar Inn) rather than a “Puppet
Master.” On the other hand, Michael is well aware of the PSI WAR
and describes very well in his book _The End to Ordinary
History_. I had dinner with him recently at the Pelican Inn in
Marin at a party celebrating Lawry Chickering’s marriage to
Serena Mondavi. Michael said he wanted me to return to Esalen
but he apparently is not a man of his word.
[15] As editor of Look in the 60’s, Leonard wrote the article
that launched the Haight Ashbury “Flower Children” as the
advance wave of a coming “Transformation” of world
consciousness. Leonard also wrote the first major article on
alleged psychics in the Soviet Union. George was definitely
fooled by the KGB because all of the Soviet psychic claims were
transparent disinformation. It is interesting that the Soviets
knew what was going to be in _Space-Time and Beyond_ before it
was published. Bill Whitehead of Dutton asked me to credit some
Russian with the discovery of “bio-gravitation” which, in the
Soviet formulation, was a bogus idea.

[17] Vallee gives us a very important clue about the occult-Nazi
connection to UFOs and Jenny and The Nine at Esalen on pp. 192 &
193 of _Messengers of Deception_: “…contactee George Adamski
had prewar connections with American fascist leader William
Dudley Pelly, who died in 1965, was the leader of the Silver
Shirts … Dr. Laughhead, who … launched Dr. Andrija Puharich
on the tracks of the mythic SPECTRA, is also thought to have
associated with this group.” SPECTRA reappears as Jenny O Conner
and THE NINE brought to Esalen by Werner Erhard and Puharich’s
patron Sir John Whitmore.

[19] I met Hazel Henderson again when we were both speakers at
the San Francisco Art Institute along with Angela Davis.
[20] Sirag spent the first five years of his life in a Japanese
prison camp on Borneo where his parents were Missionaries. He
played Mr. Spock to my Captain Kirk in the Physics Consciousness
Research Group until George Koopman torpedoed it. Sirag then
lived with Barbara Honegger in a flat provided by Henry Dakin.
[21] Honegger worked with Jim Hickman, Michael Murphy and Brendan
O Regan. Barbara told me of a strange encounter with Brendan O
Regan in which trance medium Ingo Swann spoke with a cold
metallic voice and said that it was a computer from a hundred
years into the future. She actually was doing some interesting
work in synchronicity. Barbara sued Stanford Professor Karl
Pribram in an assault case and won. She went to work for Martin
Anderson at the Hoover Institute and followed Anderson to
Reagan’s white House in 1981. I warned Lawry Chickering that
Barbara was a loose cannon. Sure enough she quit the White House
saying that the Reaganites were unfair to women. She has accused
the Reagan team of the “October Surprise.” Barbara says that Bill
Casey arranged that the American hostages in Iran not be released
until Reagan was elected. Stephen Schwartz says Barbara is lying.
Knowing Barbara I do not think she is consciously lying, but,
perhaps has been misled. She is quite idealistic, but naive.
[22] In fact Phil Kaufmann’s remake of _Invasion of the Body_
Snatchers set in San Francisco imitates the behavior of the hard
core estoids. I would not be surprised if some of them were
androids off a flying saucer. 
[23] I also met Bulgarians doing “psychic research”visiting Henry
Dakin’s laboratory where Michael Murphy and Jim Hickman were
doing their psychic-Soviet project. An army friend, in a position
to know, told me that all the Bulgarians in America at that time
were KGB agents. Stephen Schwartz of the neo-conservative
Institute for Contemporary Studies, who is an expert on Soviet
Communism, confirmed my friend’s statement. Werner and Michael
Murphy have spent lots of time in the Soviet Union before and
after it fell. In fact, Werner has appeared to run back to Moscow
now that the IRS indicted him for multi-million dollar tax fraud.
Will Werner become a political power in the New Russia?
[24] Wheeler worked with Einstein and Bohr and was Richard
Feynman’s thesis advisor at Princeton. Wheeler is the Merlin of
Physics, and a lot of my ideas were inspired by his visionary
writings. I suspect Wheeler is channeling messages from the
future telepathically as are some other physicists like his
former student Kip Thorne and also David Deutsch. Of course
Wheeler and the others may have no idea that they may be caught
in the Destiny Matrix!
[25] Fuller arranged a series of expensive junkets for famous
physicists as part of Werner’s plan to gain respectability in his
megalomaniacal drive for influence and world power. Rev. Moon
does exactly the same thing. San Francisco Chronicle science
reporter Charles Petit wrote on Wed. Jan 28, 1981 (p.32):
“An unusual closed-door meeting of more than a dozen of the
world’s foremost physicists , including at least three Nobel
Prize winners, has been held under the sponsorship of est-founder
Werner Erhard in San Francisco…”
The list of physicists included Murray Gell-Mann, Stephen
Hawking, Leonard Susskind, and David Finkelstein. I had
introduced Finkelstein to Werner when I brought Finkelstein to
Esalen. Susskind (who is now a professor at Stanford), Jonathan
Glogower and I had worked together in 1963 as students at Cornell
on the problem of coherent phase in quantum mechanics. I had
formulated the problem when I worked for Tech/Ops in 1963. In
fact I mention my work with Susskind and Glogower in a paper I
published in Il Nuovo Cimento (March, 1963). I had arranged for
Glogower to get into Cornell as a graduate student through Phil
Morrison even though Glogower never got a BA degree (Susskind
also did not finish his BA degree). Glogower and I were friends
since age eleven. He was a Westinghouse Science Finalist. I knew
him when I received the UFO phone call in 1952. Glogower never
did anything other than that one paper with me and Susskind.
Susskind said that that paper is the only one he may be
remembered for. It is extensively quoted. I went off to work at
Ford Aeronutronics in California. In the meantime Susskind
finished and published the work we had started together and never
even gave me an acknowledgement as would have been proper but not
expedient. Oddly enough, the phase paper appears in the same
issue that published John Bell’s paper on nonlocality, which is
the key idea of the physics part of this book. Petit continues:
“The meeting chairman was theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind
of Stanford University …An est spokesman, Doug Bell, said
Susskind wanted word passed that ‘it’s not like there is anything
to hide here. It’s just a few fellows having a meeting. But where
it’s at for them is that it doesn’t want or merit the kind of
attention that you are going to give it.’”
[26] Heidegger’s passive collaboration with Hitler is well known.
[27] Corey used to hang out at Enrico’s Cafe where I spent a lot
of time with Marshall Naify, Chairman of the Board of United
Artist Theaters. Werner started est in offices above Enrico’s.
[28] He is now President of Cal Tech.
[29] Garvey, who lives in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, near the Army
War College, has collected all kinds of data on Werner and other
cult figures. Garvey came to see me in North Beach years ago. He
was concerned about New Age penetration of the US Army.
[30] Carter met Uri Geller on a State Visit to the President of
Mexico. Geller fooled Carter like he fooled me, Bohm and Hasted.
An intelligence friend of mine told me that Geller was having an
affair with the wife of the President of Mexico at the time. I
had been contacted by an American intelligence agent for an
evaluation of Geller before Carter made the trip as part of the
security for the trip.
[31] Former Naval Intelligence Officer and Jack Anderson reporter
Ron Mc Rae told me that the Navy had been fooled by phony data on
remote-viewing of Soviet submarines because someone had leaked
the actual data to the phony psychics. Mc Rae seems to have
omitted this story from his book _MIND WARS_. Barbara Honegger
said that policy decisions on the basing of MX missiles were made
by the Reagan staff under the belief that remote-viewing worked.
Harold Chipman believed that it worked and told me that he had
used it successfully in his business. Indeed, he introduced me to
a glamorous private detective, V, as one of his best performers
in remote-viewing operations. V and I became lovers. She
confirmed that she had participated in experiments with Chipman.
V was like the Princess in Cocteau’s _Orfee_ “une espionne
chargee de surveiller un homme et qui le suave en se perdant,”
in Cocteau’s words.
[32] Robert Anton Wilson, who was part of our Esalen Seminars,
quotes Sirag extensively in his books.
[33] Shirley MacLaine quotes me in her book _Dancing in the
Light_. She got the title from Gary Zukav’s _Dancing Wu Li
Masters_. I always had a crush on Shirley. Shirley if you read
this get in touch! I want Mel Brooks to do the screen play of my
story with Gene Wilder playing me. 
[34] 1155 Jones St.
[35] Liberal movie actor.
[36] NASA astronaut who was on moon trip.
[37] CEO of Warner Brothers Studios.
[38] Famous yippy in Chicago 1968. Rubin, recently killed by a
car, became a loyal estoid on Wall Street. I worked with his girl
friend, Estelle Resnick, in forming the Peace and Freedom Party
in San Diego in the late sixties.
[39] I was in the position of the actor in the German film
_Mephisto_. You will see later how this ties in with Rashi
Zarfati’s relation to Godfroi de Bouillon, Margherita Sarfatti’s
relation to Mussolini and Putzi Sedgwick-Hanfstaengl’s relation
to Hitler.
[40] Author of _Messengers of Deception_ about UFOs and _The
Network Revolution_. It describes est influence in Silicon
Valley computer firms.
[41] I met a friend of Trauffaut’s at Esalen, a young French
playwright named Jean Reisser Nadal. He was investigating the New
Age movement for French National Radio. He stayed with me in San
Francisco and told me he had discovered some disturbing political
connections including a plan to assassinate Nelson Rockefeller. I
took him to the airport. A few months later I received an
invitation to his funeral at Pere La Chaise cemetery. I had
Michel Roure speak to Jean’s girl friend. She said that Jean kept
saying, “contact Jack Sarfatti,” before he died. His death was do
to a sudden onset of bone cancer. This is the way Harold Chipman
also died. I am told that radioactive poisoning has been used for
murder by intelligence organizations. Trauffaut is also dead.
Nadal told me that he and Trauffaut were planning to write a
screenplay or documentary based upon his research. I alerted a
friend in American intelligence about the threat to Rockefeller
and Nadal’s death. Rockefeller did die soon after under odd
circumstances.
[42] I was told that John Updike used me as the model for Daryl
Van Horne in _Witches of Eastwick_. Nicholson played this role
in the movie. I had been dating Suky Sedgwick and Updike uses
the name Suky in the book. Eastwick sounds like Sedgwick. Updike
knows the story of the Sedgwicks and apparently knows about my
work in the new physics since he alludes to it in both Eastwick
and his book _Roger’s Version_. If, on the other hand, Updike
did not know about me and Suky then we have a remarkable
meaningful coincidence suggesting a sense of humor in what John
Lilly calls “Cosmic Coincidence Control.”
[43] Hans Syberberg has made two films, _Our Hitler and
Parsifal_. Francis Coppola distributed Our Hitler in America. I
watched this six hour film with Syberberg in Francis’s private
theater. Although I did not realize its significance then, _Our
Hitler_ has Putzi Sedgwick-Hanfstaengl as a central image. I  met
Putzi’s grandson at around the same time.
[44] Stephen Schwartz was a red-diaper baby turned
neoconservative. Edie Sedgwick’s niece, Leila Minturn Dwight,
introduced Stephen to A. Lawrence Chickering at the Caffe
Trieste. Chickering’s grandfather had worked with Leila’s great
grandfather, Henry De Forest, who had run the Southern Pacific
Railroad at the turn of the century. Schwartz became a force at
Chickering’s Institute for Contemporary Studies. His most recent
book is _A Strange Silence_ about the rise of democracy in
Nicaragua. Both Schwartz and Chickering write for the San
Francisco Chronicle.
[45] Hinckle took me drinking several times at a policeman’s bar
on Kearny Street in the Barbary Coast near Coppola’s building.
Coppola’s office is designed to look like Captain Nemo’s
submarine in Jules Verne’s _Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the
Sea_. In some ways Francis is a genius kid who never grew up. He
likes to collect all kinds of toys. He has the power to make his
fantasies real.
[46] “George A. Koopman Dies in Car; Technologist for Space Was
44 … an entrepreneur in space technology who founded the
American Rocket Company lived in Malibu. …Mr. Koopman’s career
included being an intelligence analyst in the Vietnam War, a
maker of military training films for the Government and the
coordinator of spectacular stunts in the 1980 movie _The Blues
Brothers_…. the activity that gained Mr. Koopman the most
attention was stunt coordinator for _The Blues Brothers_, which
starred John Belushi and Dan Akroyd …”

[49] a) “Interest in the military potential of ESP… has grown
in recent years. Some of it stems from the search for reliable
and jamming-free modes of communication. A popular wave of
interest in ESP stemmed from a boom in the occult and
supernatural phenomena in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, a
time when ESP research in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union
also attracted popular attention. Some scientists in the West
have feared that the mounting fascination with ESP, in league
with the resurgence in the occult and mysticism, threatens
science itself … The Russians have long recognized that if ESP
were an actual effect and could be harnessed, it would have great
strategic potential. In 1973, stories appeared describing
CIA-sponsored probing of Soviet and Chinese secret installations
by individuals with high psi ability. By the mid-1970’s, Stanford
Research Institute appeared to be carrying the ball. Evidence of
interest and research, however, does not necessarily mean serious
acceptance or commitment to programs … nations involved in
disarmament talks may interject ‘jokers’ or ‘riders’ into
otherwise serious and rational proposals to make sure that their
opponents will not accept them. Those thus maneuvered into the
role of rejectors may seem in the eyes of technically unaware
publics to be foes of peace. A corollary to this is the strategy
of mounting shadow programs to draw an adversary’s attention –
and resources — into a dead end, the essence of Soviet efforts
in the field of ‘disinformation’. It is not clear at this point
if both sides are really just playing with each other, or if
there is something really developing in the realm of ESP…”

Beaumont (SIGNAL, Jan, 1982, pp. 39-45)
b) “It is generally believed that the Soviets and their allies
are well in the lead in parapsychological research … Telepathic
behavior modification, which includes the ability to induce
hypnotic states up to distances in excess of 1,000 kilometers,
has been reported. …The ability to mentally move objects has
also been repeatedly demonstrated under scientifically controlled
conditions. …test subjects, targeted against strategic sites in
both the USSR and the People’s Republic of China, were able to
penetrate secured areas to retrieve desired data via out-of-body
travel …”

Army (Military Review, The Professional Journal of the US Army,
Dec. 1980, pp. 47-54)
c) “… the Navy has 34 psychics under contract to track Soviet
submarines…”
d) Ch 2 of Howard Blum’s _OUT THERE_ describes a Project Scanate
session of remote-viewing of Soviet submarines and Mikhail
Gorbachev’s country dacha as late as 1985 in the office of George
Keyworth, President Reagan’s Science Advisor. “…this new
channel is employed by focusing on specific latitudinal and
longitudinal information … the demonstration centered on the
possible use of psychic powers in antisubmarine warfare.”

[50] In 1979.
[51] Lilly has written an important book called _The Scientist_
in which he describes his contacts with super-intelligences from
the future while under the influence of ketamine. The kind of
world Lilly describes is the world that I am arguing for in this
book. Lilly was a close friend of the great physicist the late
Richard Feynman. Lilly was at Esalen when high ranking Soviet
officials were there. To what extent have the events leading to
the fall of the Soviet state been caused by the Esalen drug
experiences of Soviet leaders? Both Yeltsin and Gorbachev are
closely tied to Esalen as is Werner Erhard. Even Lawry
Chickering of ICS has mentioned the importance of Esalen in the
neoconservative movement. This is the same Esalen that gave
seminars by an alleged discarnate group of extra-terrestrials
called “The Nine”. Andrija Puharich writes about “The Nine” in
_URI_. My ex-book agent Ira Einhorn spent six weeks at Esalen
after he was indicted for the murder of Holly Maddux.
Congressman Charlie Rose who believed the KGB disinformation  on
PSI WARS has also given seminars at Esalen — strange  goings on
for sure. Esalen’s Jim Garrison? was also a co-founder  of the
Christic Institute. How did Dr. John Mack of Harvard  Medical
School get involved in this? Mack was tech advisor for  CBS mini
series on UFO abductions. Mack is a founder of  Physicians for
Social Responsibility and has a Pulitzer for a  book on _Lawrence
of Arabia_. Mack told me that he heard that  Gorbachev has had a
UFO contact experience.
[52] Naranjo, Fred Wolf and I were in Brasil together in 1985 as
keynote speakers at the First International Congress on the
Mind/Matter Interaction paid for by IBM Brasil. I met many
wealthy and powerful people in Brasil including Army Generals.
They all think Uri Geller has real paranormal powers and none of
them doubted the reality of UFOs. A retired general showed me
elaborately twisted pieces of metal that he claimed he saw bent
psychokinetically by local versions of Uri Geller. He also
claimed to have seen UFO landings in the Amazon jungle.
[53] A Navy ship in WWII allegedly went through what Kip Thorne
calls a “traversable wormhole time machine”.
[54] A cousin of Congressman Phil Crane (R. Ill).
[55] Crane’s letter to Weiner is dated November 18, 1979.
[56] P. 111, hard cover edition of _SCIENCE, GOOD, BAD AND
BOGUS_ (Prometheus, 1981).
[57] The third alternative is that I am nuts and my physics is
right. When I look at photos of myself back in the 70’s and 80’s,
even I say: “That guy must be nuts!”
[58] Still another strange encounter in the mid-80’s was with M B
who claimed that she was in the international arms business with
her “well-connected” dad from Texarcana.
[59] It is odd that Esalen sponsored Yeltsin’s visit and also
runs the Gorbachev Foundation since Yeltsin and Gorbachev are not
on the best of terms.
[60] Excerpts from “The Nine, channelled by Jenny O’Conner” at
Henry Dakin’s laboratory, 3118 Washington St., San Francisco,  on
Monday, July 30, 1979. Jim Hickman, Saul Paul Sirag, Roger
Macdonald, Steve Donovan, Trever Alston, Russell Rae and others
participating:
Saul Paul asks Jenny “Have you ever interacted with Jacques
Vallee?” Jenny says, “We were supposed to. We met Hal Puthoff..I
met your friend.” Dakin’s transcript reads “discussion of Jack
Sarfatti, and Jenny’s meeting with him.” The Nine then intervene
speaking through Jenny “Main facilities Houston, Texas.”
[transcript incomplete here] Someone asks, “Any other
facilities?” The Nine respond: “A total of 85.” Roger Macdonald
asks, “Any other extremely large, not as large as the facilities
in Houston?” Michael Murphy’s partner, Jim Hickman says, “There
is NASA, but NASA isn’t supposed to be with the military.” The
Nine says, “Wilmington … Byrom, Little Hampshire [piece of
transcript missing], The Mars Project, 1944, 1945, 1948.” Roger
Macdonald asks, “What Agency or department of the United States
is the Mars Project?” The Nine, “NSS.” Saul Paul says, “It could
be some Navy thing.” The Nine, “You called it National Security
Service. They called it just the SS.” Saul Paul says, “Secret
Service?” Jim Hickman says, “I can believe that.” Hickman asks,
“You talked about Project Henry …” The Nine, “All CIA
involved.” Hickman, “All?” The Nine, “Yes.” Later on in
transcript Hickman says, “… Solvitschg’otsk, which is north
east of Moscow, where a great deal of secret military research
is being done. The Nine, “This facility is highly armed and
Soviet’s most important work goes on there. Room B12.” Jenny,
like Barbarella, takes over her own mind and says, “Can I ask
you about … and hooking up with the brainwave machine?”

[67] Oddly enough, a novel called _Speed of Light_ was published
in Berkeley in the late 70’s by a woman. The plot was similar to
the Brewer story and it involved a character resembling Werner
Erhard.
[68] Chipman started funding my work in 1985. He said he had
secretly funded part of the SRI work in remote viewing. He also
introduced me to V. He was involved with a Texas Company TLC and
a man named Joe Peeple’s who was indicted for selling arms to
Iran in the mid-80’s.
