A reflection on the anniversary of JFK's murder and why it matters to all mankind, and has an extra appeal to psychonauts

 

I've recommended this book before and will likely find a reason to do it again

 

Mary's Mosaic by Peter Janney

 

Briefly and insufficiently - but I'm not writing an analysis, just a recommendation -

 

JFK was profoundly influenced by his mistress (one of many) Mary Pinchot Meyer. She was one of us, a big thinker and lsd experimenter, and by all accounts a beautiful human soul.

 

She dosed JFK and with a combination of beauty, femininity(he tended to treat women badly), and intellect persuaded him into the mindset that got him killed.

 

She was killed under mysterious circumstances within months of JFK when it was learned she kept a relevant diary. Damn, is there any more dangereous place on this planet than in the political orbits of D. C. ?

 

My summary: there was a time when a kind soul with a handful of LSD  was the fulcrum that could have changed the course of human history for all time but her life and JFK's were snuffed by the same evil bastards who would enslave us all today.

 

Now, a mindblowing fact: the book was written by Peter Janney, her son. The shocking kicker? He points his finger directly at his father as being one of the conspirators behind the assasination.

 

This book is so well written I wish I could create something this good and enduring.

 

Highly recommended!

 

And keep a kind thought for JFK

All you well read fellows on this site I wish I had another book to add to the discussion as they often offer the better learning experience. So in the absence of such if I could recommend a documentary that wonders how our history could have been different with JFK . I would recommend the untold history of the united states by Oliver Stone, it is a ten part series that was on netflix, not sure if it sill is but the episode about JFK is pretty interesting to say the least. One thing is for sure his view on things seemed to change over the years and in the end there was hope that we might have finally been correcting a course that was created in world war two and continued on until this very day (Military industrial complex)

 

I could see acid helping for sure

 

Here I found it on Vimeo

 

 

Alder was the only one I had found so far that has watched the series. It definitely changes your perspective on how history has been told from the western squeaky clean intelligence approved viewpoint

Did you know the CIA invented the term conspiracy theory a direct response to throw shade on the JFK situation. hahaha what a joke.

 

That word has almost become one of most highly effective forms of propaganda ever invented. You can silence a dissenting opinion with the flick of your lips

.   Martin luther King was assassinated, Tim  Leary imprisoned, Edward Snowden persecuted and many many others.

.   I doubt knowing all the truth about each case would make any difference over all, or that if anyone case turned out differently that  it would change the big picture.

.   I think the problems of civilized societies, and the problems of human beings, occur at much more fundamental and pervasive  levels, than at the level of individuals, or individual events.

.   The notion that somehow things could be different seems a comforting and very human fantasy, to me; but unfortunately unrealistic.

Synchronicity ?, I just got a used copy of "One River" by Wade Davis (Author),

https://www.amazon.c...&s=books&sr=1-3

when i found this documentary on Netflix called: El Sendero De La Anaconda

I think the movie addresses some of the issues at the more fundamental and pervasive levels, as well as being about, where some of our plant medicines are from, the native peoples, an ethnobotanist who inspired the field, and more. And some of it is very beautiful. It must be a wonderful area to visit. And Wade Davis does an excellent job, of telling "the story" and making it relevant. When Spanish is spoken there are english subtitles.

I now look forward to reading the book.
