Urantia, 9/11Truth.org & CIA Mind Control Technology

I've attached a highly instructive
history of the Urantia cult at the end of the lead article on psychotronics,
tracing its origins to Seventh-Day Adventism and the Kellogg family.

In-Depth Timeline Showing the Possible Use by the Intelligence Community of
"Synthetic Telepathy" in the Urantia Movement, Teaching Mission (TeaM), A Course
in Miracles (ACIM), Findhorn, and Other Religious/Cultic Organizations.
[NOTE 1: "Synthetic telepathy" (or as it
is sometimes called "artificial telepathy") is defined here as being the human,
intentional, surreptitious, production of intra-cerebral "voices", pictures,
thoughts, and/or ideas by means of hypnosis, inaudible transmissions, or a
combination thereof, which are experienced by an unwitting subject either
directly in the mind or apparently extra-cerebrally as emanating from no known
source. One of the most current known technologies capable of producing an
intra-cerebral "voice" is called "acoustic psycho-correction". It involves the
transmission of specific commands via static or white noise bands into the human
subconscious without upsetting other intellectual functions. Alternately, by
using an infrasound very low frequency-type transmission, the acoustic
psycho-correction message can be transmitted via bone conduction. See article at
http://www.heart7.net/mcf/bzapping.htm for more.]
[NOTE 2: It is not the intention of this
author to disparage or undermine the belief in genuine spiritual contact. The
URANTIA Book, however, warns that "a human being would do better to err in
rejecting an Adjuster's 1 expression through believing it to be a purely human
experience than to blunder into exalting a reaction of the mortal mind to the
sphere of divine dignity" (1208 A, 110:5:5), and that "in scrutinizing mental
situations, safety lies only in the prompt recognition of each and every thought
and experience for just what it actually and fundamentally is, disregarding
entirely what it might have been (1199 C, 109:5:3). The Bible says: "Beloved,
believe not every spirit, but try [test] the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1).
[NOTE 3: Author and former CIA
operative, Miles Copland, states that when the CIA’s Special Projects Division
makes "connections with international religious groups for the purposes of
aiding or supplementing espionage operations (it) is almost as touchy an issue
as its association with criminal rings. To start with, Jewish and Catholic
organizations are out. ... Organizations stemming from other religions are fair
game, however." And he quotes one CIA official as saying that before they "tie
into a religious group it’s got to be so offbeat that anyone in the agency who
belongs to it may be fired as a security risk."]
1940s – Sheena Govan
and Dorothy Maclean, who will in the following decades help Eileen Caddy start
Findhorn (see, 1962), a New Age community in Scotland, are actually
working for British Intelligence while ostensibly employed as secretaries at the
British Embassy in New York. The two are present there when the OSS (Office of
Strategic services, the forerunner of the CIA) was formed in New York with the
help of British Intelligence (see, 1942).
During the 1940s OSS will begin "the first systematic effort to evaluate an
individual’s personality in order to predict his future behavior".
(John Marks' The Search for the Manchurian candidate: hereinafter, "SEARCH",
http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/lsd/marks.htm , a "must read" for
readers who know little of the MKULTRA scandal)
1942 – British
Intelligence, in New York, helps America set up its own intelligence agency,
the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).
c. 1942-1944 – Future
URANTIA Book translator, Jacques Weiss, fights with the French Resistance.
Thus, he is presumably in contact with the OSS, which during these years was
helping the "Free French". Sooner or later Weiss would reportedly claim he
followed invisible purported celestials whom he called the "hierarchy" (also
see, 1980 and 1962).
1947 – The CIA is
created out of the OSS. It begins some preliminary work with drugs,
starts a mind-control drug project at Bethesda Naval Hospital in Maryland, and
1950 – CIA's Operation
Bluebird Begun. British and Canadian observers are present at its
first meeting -- all agree to continue investigating behavior control methods
Helping to make up Bluebird’s staff are Richard Helms, James Jesus Angelton, and
Sidney Gottlieb. They establish liaisons with police departments and criminology
labs. They contact hypnotists, physicians, and psychiatrists. They design
activities to create an "exploitable alteration of personality".
– The CIA contemplates operational use
of hypnosis to control a subject "to the point where he will do our bidding
against his will and even against such fundamental laws of nature as self-
1950s (early) – Eileen
Caddy, later the primary channeler of Findhorn, leaves her five
children and her first husband (Andrew Combe, who is both Peter Caddy's
Commanding Officer and a member of Moral Rearmament, a religious organization
which has been linked to the CIA) for RAF Officer, Peter Caddy (who was at the
time married to "former" British Intelligence operative Sheena Govan -- see,
1940s), and it will not be long until Eileen begins to hear a "voice" claiming
to be "God". Before it is over she will fill some thirty thousand notebook pages
with the "voice's" dictation to her. (See, 1954)
1951 – An internal
report describes Bluebird’s purpose as "the specific subject of devising
scientific methods for controlling the minds of individuals".
Bluebird is renamed, "ARTICHOKE". Artichoke’s interests are in
electro-psycho-therapeutic techniques (see 1993), and it reportedly began work
with supersonic radiations.
– Morse Allan
(Bluebird/Artichoke) uses hypnosis on CIA secretaries.
– CIA convinces
British and Canadian Intelligence to start their own behavioral research
1952 – North Korean
brainwashing (using Chinese techniques) of American POWs is reported.
The CIA sends agents to investigate their methods.
[NOTE: Presumably it was around this
year as well when Army psychologist, "A Course In Miracles" (ACIM) channeler
Helen Schucman's future Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons
Psychology Department colleague, and expert hypnotist, Herbert Spiegel (see,
1962 NOTE 3), carried out his own investigation of the brainwashed Korean War
POWs for the US Army. He is considered to be one of the earliest American
experts in Chinese brainwashing techniques.]
– National Security
Agency (NSA) established by Harry Truman.
1953 – MKULTRA begun
(officially, it actually got into operation the year before), with Dr. Sidney
Gottlieb as its director. Gottlieb later testified before Congress that,
MKULTRA’s purpose was "to investigate whether and how it was possible to modify
an individual’s behavior by covert means".
– ACIM's William Thetford, U.S.
Government psychologist, Washington D.C., consultant to Foreign Service
Institute, Beirut, Lebanon.
[NOTE: This was apparently the year
that, according to one of Schucman and Thetfords's student-colleagues, Father
Benedict Groeshel, Thetford admitted to having been some sort of spy. This
disappeared off of the web at about the time that information concerning
Thetford's work for MKULTRA appeared there.]
c.1954 – Eileen Caddy, in
England, begins to hear “God’s voice”.
– MKULTRA absorbs
Project Bluebird/Artichoke. Morse Allen turns a CIA secretary into a
sort of “Manchurian Candidate”
1. She, however, is given an unloaded gun with which to "shoot" her victim, and
the results are controversial.
1956 – Peter Caddy
installs Eileen Caddy with Sheena Govan on the Scottish island of Mull.
It is populated largely in the south by Duart Clan Maclean. Sheena subjects
Eileen to what appears to be nothing less than a case study of classical
(Chinese technique) brainwashing, at least as her experience is later described
by Paul Hawken (see, 1962), who interviewed her for his book, The Magic of
Findhorn. It includes isolation, sleep deprivation, prolonged maintenance of
painful positions, ego-devastating disparagement, etc. Previously to this she
had refused to believe that the "voice" she was hearing was actually that of
"God", as it had claimed. (By this time, after having returned to and again left
her first husband, Eileen has married Peter Caddy. She has also tried to kill
herself during another, earlier, less intense apparent attempt at "brainwashing"
by Sheena Govan.)
[NOTE 1: I have not so far established a
connection between Findhorn's co-founder, Dorothy Maclean (see, 1940s), and the
Macleans of southern Mull].
– Future highly placed Teaching Mission
(TeaM) channeling supporter, URANTIA Brotherhood Legal Advisor, retired USMC
General Duane Faw, (see, 1983 October 6), at this point in his military career a
Major, is the Training Depot Legal Officer at Parris Island during the "Ribbon
Creek Incident", wherein a highly-rated Drill Instructor (DI) led his charges
into dangerous waters causing the drowning death of six recruits.
[NOTE 2: Inasmuch as this incident might
have answered questions which the CIA's MKULTRA was presumably asking at this
time (see 1950, 1951, and 1953), and that there was a window of opportunity at
the base sick bay for the use of hypnotism and mind-control drugs on the DI (he
was given a probable hypnotic drug for pain in his leg), some suspicion is
justified. Also, according to John C. Stevens III (Court Martial at Parris
Island: The Ribbon Creek Incident, © 1999), powerful backstage legal politics
arranged for the DI to be defended by a former Air Force Intelligence Officer,
Emile Zola Berman, who later likewise defended Sirhan Sirhan, Robert Kennedy's
believed hypnotically programmed assassin, who reported hearing "voices" in his
head. Please understand that "suspicion" does not constitute certainty. However
there are too many inconsistencies and "coincidences" to simply accept the
Ribbon Creek story at face value. Speculatively, Major Faw's role as Legal
Officer allowed him to keep the investigation away from any sensitive areas, and
Berman's role would have been a similar one. Faw seems to have a facility for
popping up around CIA activities. In the next decade, he and his unit of
combat-ready Marines (Faw transferred from staff to line officer status, he
says, to increase his chances for promotion) will be peripherally involved as a
possible backup landing force for the CIA's invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs,
and later they will be close at hand as an occupation force if needed during the
CIA-backed invasion of the Dominican Republic. (See, 1961 and 1965)]
[NOTE 3: "A Course In Miracles"
channeler, Helen Schucman's future colleague in the Psychology Department at
Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons, expert hypnotist and
brainwasher, Herbert Spiegel, (see, 1952 NOTE) is likewise connected to Sirhan
Sirhan. Spiegel accused William Joseph Bryon Jr. – a hypnotist who immediately
following the assassination of Robert Kennedy had publicly asserted in the media
that Sirhan had been hypnotized to shoot the Presidential candidate – of having
himself been the hypnotist. Spiegel based this accusation against Bryon on
Spiegel's own esoteric interpretation of a seemingly nonsensical phrase which
appeared in Sirhan's "automatic writings". This is sufficient evidence for
speculating that it was Spiegel who carried out the actual necessary hypnosis on
Schucman, convincing her that what she heard post-hypnotically in her mind was
instructions being given by Jesus. It may also be speculated that Spiegel's
accusation of Byron was merely a ruse to draw the scent away from himself, and
that it was he, Spiegel, who hypnotically turned Sirhan into a Manchurian
candidate. Please understand that such speculations only constitute working
hypotheses which require further proof.]
1958 – Dr. William
Sadler's son, Bill Sadler, acknowledges in an intra-office memo that "a really
clever conspiracy could destroy the [URANTIA] Brotherhood or otherwise divert or
destroy its mission." This same year he also wrote: "There is no place in the
Urantia Foundation for naivete."
Both warnings have been largely ignored.
– "A Course in
Miracles" channeler (see, 1965), Helen Schucman, goes to work for William
Thetford in the Psychology Department at Columbia University's
College of Physicians and Surgeons. (See URANTIAGATE article: Lie Down with
Dogs, Get up with Fleas!: The MKULTRA Milieu Surrounding the "Scribing" of A
Course In Miracles).
[NOTE: Peter Caddy and William Thetman
play almost identical supportive roles in relation to their channelers,
respectively, Eileen Caddy and Helen Schucman. Both men appear to be unwavering
in their belief in the genuineness of the women's "contacts", both convince the
women that what they are hearing is indeed real and encourage them to continue
in spite of their doubts. Caddy, however, appears to have carried his "support"
over into actual brainwashing, as it was practiced in the post-Korean War era.
Peter Caddy had only a known indirect connection with British Intelligence
through his wife, Sheena Govan. However while he was in the RAF he did undertake
a secret, wartime, intelligence mission to Tibet for his government. On the
other hand, William Thetford's secret direct connection to the CIA's
mind-control program, MKULTRA, has been exposed by the release of FOIA
– Project ORION is
reputedly begun. It is said to study drugs, hypnosis, electronic
brain invasion with radar, microwaves, and extremely low frequencies (ELF) of
sound. Leading Edge attributes Orion to USAF, but others say CIA. (see also,
1990, "Elizabeth Y. Fitzhugh")
– Captain Al ("Cappy")
Hubbard, whose contacts include the OSS, CIA, and, as evidence would indicate,
MKULTRA, writes to Urantia movement leader, Meredith Sprunger, asking
for information about The URANTIA Book (see letter at,
http://urantiabook.org/archive/history/sprung_1.htm and more about
http://www.maps.org/media/bcflashback.html . Scroll down 10 paragraphs).
Sprunger when recently asked could recall no outcome of this event.
Late 1950s – Meredith
Sprunger introduces Vern Grimsley, then a high school student, to The URANTIA
[NOTE: I have neither wish nor reason to
implicate Sprunger in any of this. The above entry is made simply for its
chronological interest in the unfolding of events.]
1960s – CIA-funded
investigators discover correlation between EEG (Electroencephalograph) patterns
and the ability to remember numbers . (SEARCH).
[NOTE: This is similar to the type of
scientific investigation carried out for MKULTRA by Helen Schucman and William
Thetford's co-author, David R. Saunders (see, SEARCH, Chapter 10).]
Early 1960s – ORD
takes over most of MKULTRA’s mind control research.
– Bert Kaplan, Psychology Professor at the University of Kansas hires Vern
Grimsley as an undergraduate research assistant on his National Institute of
Mental Health (NIMH) grant. NIMH is known to have acted as a conduit, both
funding and fronting grants for the CIA's MKULTRA research during this period.
(Also see, 1993)
[NOTE 1: The problem is that Kaplan's
version of the terms of Vern's employment reportedly differs sharply from what
Vern is said to have later told his friends as well as from autobiographical
material which he used in his speeches and elsewhere on occasion for years.
Grimsley apparently believed that he worked for two years, not the single one
which Kaplan reported to Caston, who interviewed him around 1984. Vern
reportedly told people he spent a second year in Washington, D.C. managing a
Kaplan-overseen grant from the National Science Foundation. Caston attributes
the different stories to exaggeration on Vern's part. However he does not appear
even to have considered the alternative that Kaplan, or someone connected to
him, may have funneled Vern to be used as an unwitting subject in then ongoing
MKULTRA investigations, even though the scandal surrounding the MKULTRA exposure
had filled the media less than a decade before he wrote his analysis of Vern's
experience. He certainly does not include it among his six "Possible Scenarios",
but Caston does include "nefarious forces exploiting an overdeveloped ego and
plotting to discredit and split the URANTIA movement . . . to abort the mission
of The URANTIA Book". Which, of course, may in fact be what this synthetic
telepathy phenomenon is all about. (Refs., "Vern Grimsley Message Evaluation",
by Hoite Caston, © 1984, hereinafter, "EVALUATION").]
[NOTE 2: I have established no direct
connection with any intelligence agency for either Kaplan or the University of
Kansas during the year(s) of Vern's employment in the Psychology Department.
However the university medical school was possibly the only institution to hold
a symposium on the Russian device which is capable of putting the "voice of God"
in the head of an unwitting subject (see, 1993 NOTE), and the University of
Kansas Psychology Department shows up on a conspiracy theory webpage as having
provided disinformation on the subject of programmed false memories (see,
, scroll down to the alphabetical listing.)]
1960 – Ex-CIA agent,
Philip Agee, documents the fact that even as late as this date the
"most important liaison operation of the CIA is with MI-6 (British
Intelligence). They exchange information and mount joint operations . . . . The
inner club includes Canada." (Inside the CIA: CIA Diary, by Philip Agee,
1961 – Bay of Pigs:
The failed CIA invasion of Cuba. Future URANTIA Brotherhood Legal Advisor and
important Teaching Mission (TeaM) channeling supporter, Duane Faw, the
commanding officer of a US Marine landing force, is fully armed and ready for
combat in the vicinity of Vieques, a Puerto Rican island used for USMC assault
landing training, US Naval bombing practice, etc. Here also the expatriate Cuban
frogmen were trained by the CIA for their part in the invasion. Ostensibly Faw's
unit was merely rotated by turn into the area in line with standard training
procedures, but the operation may have been orchestrated to have his backup
available. Even Faw admits that his unit might have been called into action, but
this option was abruptly canceled when President Kennedy at the last minute
issued orders forbidding all direct US military involvement in the CIA
[NOTE: The suspicion here is that Faw,
following the Ribbon Creek incident, represented a known and proven quality who
would not balk – as an unproven quality might – at carrying out CIA orders if
and when they came. A further supposition is that such a known quality might be
persuaded to infiltrate a cult to provide intelligence/security agency support
as perhaps a misconceived patriotic duty and for an extra retirement income.
(See, 1956, 1965 and 1983 October 6)]
1962 – Helen Schucman
and William Thetford co-author a paper on "The personality theory of
John Gittinger" (See,
http://www.pasf.org/print_bibliog.htm , hereinafter "PAS BIBLIOG"). This was
published by the Human Ecology Fund, which has been identified by John Marks as
being a MKULTRA front.
[NOTE 1: John W. Gittinger (SEARCH, see
http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/lsd/marks.htm Chap. 10) was the
primary personality assessor for MKULTRA. He pioneered scientific methods to
enable him to identify the most susceptible types of personalities for Dr.
Gottlieb's nefarious, amoral, and often harmful U.S. government- sponsored
exploitations of innocent human beings, including children (see, MKULTRA
Subprojects 102,103, and 117:
Gittinger's MKULTRA research eventually surfaced as his "Personality Assessment
System" (PAS), which also both has been studied and used by legitimate
scientists for non-exploitive purposes.]
– (Sept.) Helen Schucman and David R.
Saunders co-author a paper relating to Gittinger's PAS (see, PAS BIBLIOG).
[NOTE 2: David R. Saunders is mentioned
in Chapter 10 of John Marks' book as having carried out secret personality
profiling investigations for MKULTRA.]
– (Sept.) Helen Schucman, William
Thetford, and David R. Saunders co- author a paper relating to Gittinger's PAS
(see, Gittinger Bibliography of References:
http://www.pasf.org/print_bibliog.htm . Hereinafter "PAS BIBLIOG").
[NOTE 3: Besides Thetford and Saunders,
another of Helen Schucman's Columbia University's College of Physicians and
Surgeons Psychology Department "colleagues" around this time was Herbert
Spiegel, a recognized expert in hypnotism and brainwashing (see, 1952), who was
then teaching courses in hypnosis. During – by his own estimation – "maybe the
mid sixties", Spiegal was also associated with the case of "Sybil", a Multiple
Personality Disorder victim. Because "Sybil" was so easily hypnotized he was
using the woman for demonstration purposes in his classes. Spiegel since that
time aligns himself on the "disinformationist" side of the False Memory Syndrome
(FMF) controversy, (see,
http://www.astraeasweb.net/plural/spiegel.html ), as also apparently does
the University of Kansas Psychology Department (see, 1960-1962 (circa) NOTE 2),
where the URANTIA movement's "WW III" channeler, Vern Grimsley, had been
[NOTE 4: Schucman appears to be like a
mouse caught on a glue trap surrounded by cats. Two of her "colleagues" (one a
dear friend) have or will have direct, secret connections to the CIA's
mind-control program, MKULTRA. A third "colleague" is an expert hypnotist and
brainwasher who is perfectly capable of making unwitting subjects see and hear
whatever he wishes. Likely her psychological weaknesses were pinpointed and
categorized by Gittinger's PAS, and probably she had been hired for the very
reason that she fit the profile of a "hypno-patsy" or a "manchurian channeler".
When the backgrounds of her "colleagues" are brought into scrutiny, what took
place between 1965 and 1972 at the Columbia University college of Physicians and
Surgeons Psychology Department in the so-called "scribing" of A Course In
Miracles is so blatent as to almost be overt! Even Eileen Caddy, surrounded as
she was by ex-British Intelligence personnel comes in a poor second to Schucman!
– Led by Eileen
Caddy's "voice", Findhorn is begun in an old house trailer pulled up
near the beach on a bleak section of the northern Scottish coast adjacent to
Kingloss Royal Air Force Base. Eileen's husband, Peter Caddy, is a former RAF
officer and recently the husband of Sheena Govan, who worked for British
Intelligence during WW II. The Caddys are accompanied by Dorothy Maclean, who
was formerly employed by British Intelligence under Govans' supervision (see,
1940s). Later Govan became something of a recognized spiritual teacher and cult
leader with ex-underling Maclean and husband Caddy as, at least, two of her
"disciples". She apparently continued to direct Caddy after he had left her bed
for that of Eileen's, and she played a direct role in Eileen's earlier "brainwashings"
[NOTE 5: Author Paul
Hawken, who later visited Findhorn, will write in The Magic of Findhorn, about
the "thick, vibrant energies" felt in the house trailers and gardens.
"Whatever it is, it seems to be the physical stuff of the place. If you walk
across the road to the bay, it is not quite there. . . the intense energy field
is lacking. Everybody here talked about it, knew about it, referred to it as
'the energies'. It was a 'buzz' which was more felt than heard" (see also, 1979,
Ken Cory). No one seems to have thought to ask whether or not the Kingloss RAF
Base next door might have been somehow responsible, even though on the base
immediately adjacent to Findhorn was a posted secret, fenced-off area protected
by guard dogs.]
Publication of La Cosmogonie D’Urantia, a French translation of The URANTIA Book
by Jacques Weiss. (See, 1942-1944 and 1980)
– Martin Myers and
Richard Keeler drive to Chicago to meet Dr. Sadler and Christy.
1964 – Vern Grimsley
begins his URANTIA Book teaching based radio broadcasts on KFAX in
San Francisco. He agrees with the URANTIA Foundation that he will not mention
the book by name on the air.
1965 – (June -
October) Helen Schucman experiences "a dramatic progression of waking dreams
. . . culminating with her experiencing a Voice which speaks clearly in her
mind. The Voice, which Helen references with a capital "V", explains to her the
visions she has been receiving" (ref.,
– Sir George
Trevelyan, in England, gathers together "all of the New Age groups
under one roof for the first time," with Air Marshall Sir Victor Goddard former
chief of British Air Intelligence -- in attendance. Peter Caddy, who was
uninvited, "gate crashes" this event to announce the beginning of Findhorn (The
Magic of Findhorn).
– Future URANTIA
Brotherhood Legal Advisor and important Teaching Mission (TeaM) channeling
supporter, Duane Faw, and his combat ready Marine landing force, lay in wait
just over the Caribbean horizon from the Dominican Republic. If
called by the CIA officers directing the invasion, they are to go ashore to
seize and hold the government. The situation, however, developed in such a way
that they are not needed. (See, 1956, 1961 and 1983 October 6)
[NOTE: Again, this is an illustration of
the high degree of trust placed in Faw by the intelligence/security community.]
1965-1968 – Helen
Schucman, with William Thetford's support, "scribes" ("channels" into
written form, purportedly directly from Jesus) "A Course In Miracles" (ACIM).
1967 – Family of God
Foundation (FOG) established by Vern Grimsley in California.
1968 – MKULTRA's
Gittinger and Saunders co-author an article or paper relating to
Gittinger's PAS (see, PAS BIBLIOG).
– Martin Myers moves
into in the Chicago URANTIA Foundation and Brotherhood headquarters
to live there with Dr. Sadler and Christy (whom the Sadlers had "adopted").
– In the beginning many hippies were
drawn to Findhorn, who likely could be expected to be familiar with psychotropic
drug effects, but around this year, according to Paul Hawken, Peter Caddy began
to "verbally thrash" them for "the slightest deviation from the rigid order and
structure of the community". Most left. Only those who, as Hawken paraphrases
Timothy Leary, "gave up, gave in, and submitted" to the "thick overlay of
authority" stayed behind.
[NOTE: Most, if not all, of strange
experiences described by Hawken during his own stay – which Findhorners ascribed
to spiritual causes – are similar (actually appear to be identical) to the
effects of a variety psychotropic drugs (including marijuana and MDA, or "love
drug"). This same similarity is also apparent in the earlier purported religious
experiences of selected Findhorners, such as Robert O. ("Roc") Crombie, who had
several LSD-type experiences which he believed included a genuine visitation by
the "horned god Pan". Caddy and others supported this illusion as being reality.
At least 25 MKULTRA Subprojects concern drugs or botanicals]
1969-1970 – Recent
Yale graduate and future URANTIA Foundation trustee, Neal Waldrop, is
employed and trained by the National Security Agency (NSA), then and possibly
still America's most secret spy shop.
– The CIA accomplishes
brain-computer link-up. The process unscrambles an individual’s
brainwaves, deciphers and records them, and injects them into another subject. (
http://www.trufax.org/welcomemsie.html : Hereinafter "LEADING EDGE")
[NOTE: The labels "brainwashing victims"
and "Manchurian candidates" will evolve through "hypno-patsies" to, currently,
mental or emotional "clones". The development of this particular technology
during the past three decades may account for this change. It is believed that
secret technology also presently allows for direct wireless access to an
unwitting subject's visual cortex both for inputting and downloading of realtime
awake and dreaming field of vision data. The idea that other areas of the brain
can be equally accessed should not be dismissed.]
1969-1971 – Helen
Schucman, with William Thetford's support, "scribes" ("channels" into
written form, purportedly directly from Jesus) the ACIM "Workbook"
1970 – Future URANTIA
Foundation trustee, NSA-trained Neal Waldrop enters the U.S. Navy, attends
Officer Candidate School.
[NOTE: Phillip Agee described his own
experience in becoming a CIA officer with a military cover. After being inducted
into the agency, he was hired as a civilian by an "Air Force cover unit". A few
weeks later he enlisted in the Air Force. "While in the Air Force," he wrote, "I
will be treated like any other enlisted man. . . . Keeping the secret will be a
part of my training -- learning to live my cover." (INSIDE)]
– Rand Corporation
publishes a report entitled, "A Direct Mechanism for the Direct Influence of
Microwave Radiation on Neuroelectric Function", by R.J. MacGregor. He
"notes that power densities of close to 1000,000mw/cm2 can produce auditory
hallucinations in a field that would be averaged as low intensity and
non-thermal." (LEADING EDGE)
1971 – Harry McMullan
makes initial contact for Vern Grimsley’s Family of God Foundation
(FOG) with Radio Free Europe (RFE) while in New York. RFE at this time is a
"proprietary arm of the CIA" (Mark Lane). Congress will later force the CIA's
disassociation from RFE.
– One month after this
possible CIA involvement began, Vern Grimsley visits Bert Kaplan
(see, 1960-1962), who was by then teaching at a college in California.
-- The CIA's Radio
Free Europe dispatches a questionnaire to be filled out by all FOG members.
Later RFE produces and airs a half-hour documentary about Vern and FOG
ostensibly based on the group's answers.
[NOTE 1: It is not impossible that this
questionnaire also was to be used for creating Gittinger-style psychological
profiles of the members. The FOG Diary describes it as a "list of questions
dealing with the religious beliefs, and principal religious doubts, of America's
young people, the mission and future plans of the Family of God Foundation,
together with a request for background information on 'what led you (VBG) and
your associates into this work?'" (quoted in EVALUATION, p. 129). Generic,
unanswerable questions about "America's young people" would tend to open a
Rorschach-like window into the subconscious mind of the individuals answering
them rather than to elicit real facts, which the testees could not be expected
– The printing plates
for The URANTIA Book are destroyed after the second printing by the URANTIA
Foundation, thus severing the last physical link between the
published work and the original "Papers", and thereby erasing a benchmark for
future scholars and translators.
– Eileen Caddy’s
"voice" is discontinued. She will remain at Findhorn.
[NOTE 2: Peter Caddy
(after divorcing Eileen) will tour the international New Age scene,
propounding the "spirit" of Findhorn and group consciousness until he is killed
in a car wreck. Dorothy Maclean (ex-British Intelligence), along with a few more
Findhorners, will start the Lorian Association in California. Sheena Govan,
after having suffered from "cluster headaches" for much of her adult life, has
died. It is worth noting in this context that in the early 1960s ultrasonic
experiments on 225 Fort Ord soldiers produced brain lesions.

The U.S. Army publishes a study entitled: "Controlled Offensive Behavior: USSR"
which concerns itself with targeting individuals with "mind altering
techniques" and "the total submission of one’s will to some outside force." The
study involved the use of pulsed microwaves. (LEADING EDGE. See also, 1993)
– Dr. Sidney Gottlieb and Richard Helms order the destruction of most of
MKULTRA's records. Many, however, apparently overlooked, will later
be found intact, declassified, and subsequently released to John Marks (1,600
pages of documents) and others as a result of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
[NOTE: In 1977 John Marks will make a
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for ORD files on "behavior research
related to bio-electrics, electric or radio stimulation of the brain, electronic
destruction of memory, stereotoxic surgery, psychosurgery, hypnotism,
parapsychology, radiation, microwaves, and ultrasonics". The CIA reports back as
having 130 cubic feet of material expected to contain pertinent documents. Marks
regretted that he could not afford to obtain them.]
1974 – "J.F. Schapitz
proposes a project, later funded by the U.S. Department of Defense,
showing how the spoken word of a hypnotist may be conveyed by modulated
electromagnetic energy directly into subconscious parts of the brain. The
subject cannot consciously control the information input." A monograph entitled
"Psychotronics in Engineering" published by the Joint Publications Research
Service in Arlington, VA. repeats Schapitz’s claim, adding that "voices would
program the subconscious mind without employing any technical devices for
receiving or transcoding the messages ... "[emphasis added] (LEADING EDGE. Also

that "the capacity of communicating directly with humans by pulsed microwaves is

monitor and analyze "communications".]

operative, Phillip Agee describes two methods by which the CIA puts agents where
they want them. Sometimes they will recruit leaders of groups they

– USMC Brigadier
General (Ret.) and Pepperdine University Law Professor, Duane Faw, makes his
initial contact with the URANTIA Foundation. He will associate
himself with Vern Grimsley's cult-like organization, the Family of God
Foundation (FOG), and shortly be given the position of Chairman of the URANTIA
Brotherhood's Legal Committee. Faw will become the chief "inner circle"
supporter of Teaching Mission channeling and "stillness practice", both of which
appear to be contra-indicated in The URANTIA Book! (See, 1099 D, 100:5:8 through
– Paul Snider, for the
URANTIA Brotherhood and as its President, signs the Foundation's "Confirmatory
Agreement," essentially a lie which denied that the registered
trademark "Urantia" had been in general use up to that time, ceding all rights
to it (and to the three azure concentric circles) to the Foundation. The
Foundation later used this to "disenfranchise" the Brotherhood in 1989. Without
this agreement it would have had no grounds to do so.
[NOTE: This "Confirmatory Agreement" was
so hypocritical and dishonest that a number of Urantia Brotherhood Societies
refused to become signatories to it, so "Licensing Agreement" governing each
Society's use was then drawn up and signed by each of them.
General Council reported to its membership in 1989 -- just a month
and a half before the Foundation "formally terminat[ed] the Confirmatory
Licensing Agreement" and evicted the Brotherhood from their shared office space
-- that in retrospect there were four "perhaps unintended" (my emphasis) effects
to the 1974 signing:
1. "It partially defeated the initial
founding effort to separate the work into two autonomous orgizational entities".
2. "It caused the URANTIA Foundation to
believe it had veto power over Brotherhood activities".
3. It "seemed intended to sever the
inherent organizational integrity of URANTIA Brotherhood".
4. "It set up an almost inevitable
conflict between" the official, organizational use of the name "Urantia" and its
"also valid use" as a symbol with spiritual meaning by readers of The URANTIA
Book ", Sept. 16-17, 1989).
The split between the
two Urantia movement organizations can be seen as having its roots
and beginning in this document.]
1975 – A version of
Vern Grimsley's radio program is being carried on 874 outlets of Armed Forces
Radio Network (AFRN), including 572 onboard Navy ships. Each station
is indicated by a destroyer on the FOG map. AFRN is known at times to have
loaned its facilities to the CIA. (Mark Lane). Vern's complete program is being
heard in all 50 states and in a number of foreign countries, as well. FOG
claimed a grand total of "more than 1,000 stations around the world" and "over
100 million listeners", figures which are disputed by Caston.

Foundation trustee, Neal Waldrop, is admitted to URANTIA Brotherhood as a

former Forum member (joined in 1951) and Urantia movement leader, believes
that the URANTIA Brotherhood was diverted this year from its primary role of
fostering serious and systematic study, to marketing The URANTIA Book, the
"endless reassessment of its [organizational] purpose," and the "fine tuning of
its organization". (Ref., "The Plan for The URANTIA Book Revelation", by Carolyn
B. Kendall, April,1996)
[NOTE: I myself see no direct relevance
to this issue in this, and Kendall dismisses the idea that it may have been
conspiratorial (however, she does not appear to have been considering a
governmental conspiracy). I have included it since it shows a general trend.
Also, I have yet to learn General Faw's role here, if any, which may alter the

Grimsley is a member of the Reserve Corps of Destiny 3. Many believe

Jonestown was a field test of mind control drugs on African Americans and Native

to have once told a reporter for the Black Panther newspaper that all

1978-1979 – Future
URANTIA Foundation trustee, Neal Waldrop, is the chief organizer,
master of ceremonies, and a speaker at the First through Third Mid-Atlantic
Conferences of Urantia Book readers.
[NOTE: The apparent chronological
inconsistency above (three annual events in two years) appears in Waldrop's "URANTIA
Brotherhood Background" which he submitted in a cover letter to his, "Do We Live
in the Shadow of Nuclear Annihilation?" (see, 1983 November 14).]
1979 – Ken Cory,
whose channelings became the book Starseed Transmissions writes that while
channeling he hears "a low humming, an energy field" (see, 1974, also, 1962 NOTE
4). The messages he receives, he says, "came first in non-verbal form on waves
or pulsations that carried the concise symbolic content of what I term
‘meta-conceptual information’" (quoted in Jon Klimo's book, Channeling) This
last appears possibly to be similar or identical to the channeling experience of
Helen Schucman and Teaching Mission (TeaM) "transmitter/receivers", whose
"voices", while dictating, are described as being just at the
Soviet Union war in Afghanistan: During this time the Russians
reputedly used then-secret equipment employing inaudible transmissions that can
convince individuals that they are hearing the voice of God inside their heads
(see, 1993, the year knowledge of it surfaced in the media). The possibility
that some of this technology fell into the hands of CIA-trained and supplied
Afghanistani fighters, such as Osama bin Laden, and into the hands of the CIA
itself cannot be discounted. The use of this equipment could explain the seeming
mass-production of ("mentally cloned"?) "fanatic" terrorist suicide bombers. The
probability that the U.S. intelligence/security community had itself developed
similar, parallel technology, as indicated in this timeline primarily by Leading
Edge and John Marks references, should neither be confused with this Russian
technology nor be quickly dismissed.
1980 – Emma "Christy"
Christensen receives an apparently audible "message" from "unseen
friends", who are believed to be the same Revelatory Commission of supernal
beings who created The URANTIA Book. She reportedly informed several people of
this occurrence. Thomas Kendall credits the solution of the "French situation"
to the credence given to this message.
[NOTE: The "French situation" concerned
the first French language translation of The URANTIA Book, entitled, La
Cosmogonie d'Urantia, which was made by Jacques Wiess, (see, 1942-1944 and
1962). Wiess was sued by the URANTIA Foundation in 1974 for copyright violation,
and his book went into underground, pirated publication.]
1982 – Emma "Christy"
– Two months after
Christy's death, Neal Waldrop submits to the URANTIA Foundation "a
detailed Project Outline for a [Mandarin] Chinese Translation of The URANTIA
Book, together with a draft Chinese Translation of the Foreword and Paper 1".
[NOTE 1: A URANTIA Book reader reports
that sometime around this year Waldrop expressed his anger that the Foundation
ignored his translation project. Waldrop also reportedly told that same
individual then that some unnamed US intelligence/security agency had previously
been involved in the Urantia movement, but that it no longer was at that time.
If Waldrop's reference was to CIA (MKULTRA or ORD) activity, it would likely
have been disseminated only on a need-to-know basis. The fact that Waldrop was
privy to that information hardly closes the door to the idea of subsequent or
simultaneous NSA involvement (he could hardly be expected to admit or allude to
his own undercover mission, if any -- indeed, those readers who know Waldrop
cannot picture him as an intelligence operative, a fact which is necessarily the
mark of successful undercover work). If this hearsay is factual (and I have no
reason to doubt the reader's veracity) it would appear that the NSA may have won
a bureaucratic turf war against the CIA. It might be observed that a revelation
such as The URANTIA Book, transmitted by extra-terrestrial, ("alien") supernal
beings undoubtedly constitutes "communications". This "communications" aspect
places the Urantia movement in a distinctly different category from ACIM,
Findhorn, Jim Jones' People's Temple, or David Koresh's Branch Davidians. The
Urantia Papers had been received in 1934-1935, several decades before
intelligence/security community interest in developing synthetic telepathy
began. Therefore it could not have been the product of "synthetic telepathy". It
would appear, then, that beginning sometime around 1974-1975 (when NSA-trained
future URANTIA Foundation trustee, Neal Waldrop, became a URANTIA Book reader
and was admitted into the URANTIA Brotherhood as a member-at-large), in cultic
activity where there are no purported intra-cerebral "communications" other than
those likely induced by "synthetic telepathy" – TeaM, ACIM, Jim Jones' People's
Temple, and David Koresh's Branch Davidians – the CIA is in charge, but where
the prospect of actual "alien" communications exist – the Urantia Papers and
UFOs – then the NSA has jurisdiction. How fine this dividing-line is drawn and
exactly where it is placed is known only by the intelligence/security community
2: I would like to point out the absurdity of trying to present the fifth
epochal revelation (The Urantia Book) to the Asian world in a translation
sponsored by, or in any way connected to, either the U.S. State Department or
the NSA! It is bad enough that the first Asian-language translation is in
Korean, the nation in the eastern hemisphere in which there is probably the
highest concentration of U.S. Intelligence/Security presence, whose own
intelligence agency, the KCIA, was started with CIA help and which likely still
maintains CIA ties. The U.S. Congress actually found connections between the
KCIA and cult activity in the United States (the Sun Myung Moon organization).
And one of the present URANTIA Foundation trustees (who reputedly made the
translation) happens to be a naturalized American South Korean. Dr. E. Kwan Choi,
a Profesor of Economics at Iowa State University, was elected trustee in March,
1997 . None of this may be expected to encourage Asians to accept the
revelation. One must wonder if there is a plan to keep the revelation from
widespread acceptance in Asia! Kwan is presently (2002) suing the other URANTIA
Foundation trustees for alleged organizational, including financial,
improprieties. (See also, 1958)]
– Six months after
Christy’s death, Vern Grimsley, "awoke one morning with a strong
feeling that he must buy a new property for his organization, the Family of God
(F.O.G.). He developed a picture in his mind of what it should entail and
– The following month,
while viewing the vacated St. Anthony's College campus, which was being shown to
him by a Realtor, Vern heard an audible "voice" from no apparent source telling
him, "This is it!"
– Before the end of
the year Vern bought his new "Spiritual Renaissance Institute" at Clayton,
California for $4 million. Its was situated four miles from the
Concord Naval Weapons Station and partially surrounded by a dozen other
strategic installations with varying importance as possible targets, including
two Naval shipyards (one for nuclear subs), two military air bases and an
international airport, a Naval fuel depot, a Naval supply center, and Livermore
Nuclear Research Laboratory -- all at distances from fifteen to twenty eight
miles from Vern's soon-to-be purported holocaust survival headquarters (see,
1983 October 6).
– Many Urantia
movement people believe Christy's "mantle" as de facto leader of the Urantia
movement had been passed to Vern.
[NOTE 3: In 1969 when
Dr. William Sadler died, his last words spoke of passing the "torch"
to Christy who would then pass it to younger members.]
1983 – Vern Grimsley
has "over 100 ‘contacts’". He would emerge from sessions "in a very
tired and worn state". Vern said that his messages came, "even when I am asleep"
– (October 6) Vern’s
"voices" tell him to prepare to survive a nuclear exchange (WW III).
They then began to develop survival strategies (including – in answer to a
question put directly to them – that if necessary attackers storming F.O.G.
fallout shelters could be shot!). Accordingly, Vern surrounded the new compound
with chain link fence, and F.O.G. began stockpiling arms. Combat veteran,
Brigadier General Duane Faw (USMC Retired), a URANTIA Brotherhood official who
would soon become the primary inner circle leadership supporter of TeaM
channeling (see, 1985), actually gave advice to FOG on military defense
procedures, reportedly including such things as "fields of fire". Faw demurs
that he never expected FOG's all-out military response to his suggestions.
However, the purported celestials spoke to Vern in words which sound more like
those of a Marine Corps General than of the seraphim or midwayers recorded in
The URANTIA Book. They told him that "the institute in Clayton is projected to
be in the top ten percent of functional, slash, protectable locations given
current data" (EVALUATION). Ironically, after surviving the holocaust, Vern was
expected to carry on broadcasting the light of truth from his radio transmitter
tower on top of nearby Mt. Diablo (Devil Mountain)! This area was once reputedly
the home of the Devil, who reputedly made appearances to people in the days
before California became a state.
[NOTE 1: While I could find no direct
ties between General Faw and the U.S. Intelligence/Security community (beyond
his having been assigned as a Matine Corps legal officer to the Judge Advocate
General Corps), Faw had the habit of popping up near actual or possible CIA
projects (see, 1956, 1961, and 1965).]
-- It was around this
point in time that part of the Urantia movement’s inner circle deserted Vern
and/or turned against him. The "official", or "organized" Urantia
movement would become divided precisely along the pro/con "messages" fault-line.
Continuing support of Vern would later be used as the excuse for
disenfranchising the URANTIA Brotherhood (see, 1989 October 30), and Thomas
Kendall would be suddenly removed both from his position as URANTIA Foundation
President and trustee ostensibly because of his support for Vern.
– (November 14) Neal
Waldrop submits reasons to the URANTIA Brotherhood why he believes it
is impossible that the USA could then be living "In The Shadow of Nuclear
Annihilation", thus professionally 5 refuting the message given to Vern by
purported celestials. There followed, according to one reader, "a well-neigh
general rejection of the ‘messages’ and an overwhelming flow of criticisms"
leveled against Vern (ref., Emmanuel DeSurvire, quoted in EVALUATION).
– The week following
Waldrop's submission, Vern’s "unseen friends" told Vern, "We won!" –
possibly their very last message to him, or the last one about WW III. Vern has
remained silent on the issue. It was, at least, the last message he forwarded to
any "official" Urantia movement organizations. Rumor has it, however, that Vern
is still hearing the "voices" of purported celestials.
– Many FOG members,
including Richard Keeler (on Nov. 20), and Harry McMullan (before Oct. 27),
abandon Vern's group. FOG (reportedly) eventually will go bankrupt,
defaulting on its loan for the Clayton site. Vern's influence as an effective
movement leader with a wide following from this point forward is curtailed.
Christy's mantle, if Vern had ever indeed worn it, was snatched quickly from his
[NOTE 2: It may be
speculated that if Vern was an unwitting CIA (MKULTRA/ORD) subject,
the withdrawal of its influence from the Urantia movement could have allowed for
the "sacrifice" of Vern as a red herring and stepping stone for putting an NSA
operative into a leadership position. In any event, the "voices" eliminated the
widely acknowledged major contender, the "voices" caused the movement to be
divided over the issue of belief in them (see for instance, "Special report to
the Readers of The URANTIA Book: URANTIA Foundation Ends Its Relationship With
The Former URANTIA Brotherhood", by URANTIA Foundation, April 1990, p. 15 and p.
19-3), and afterwards "NSA Neal" Waldrop was put into the catbird seat (see,
1984-1989 – The climate at
Foundation headquarters reportedly continues to deteriorate.
– What will become the first Teaching Mission group (see, 1989) begins as a
small channeling group in New Zealand (see,
http://www.winged-horse.com/archives/time.htm ), where one of the NSA's
largest facilities is located.
1986 – Hoite Caston is
made a trustee of the URANTIA Foundation.
– First Spanish language translation of
The URANTIA Book. It contains serious flaws, and is reputedly distorted in
1989 – The entire
Executive Committee of the URANTIA Brotherhood are signatories to a
letter to the Foundation trustees referring to Martin Myers' "questionable and
secretive use of 'instructions' or 'mandates' supposedly given [by supernal
beings] in confidence to our predecessors" (but see, 1990 Helena Sprague
[NOTE 1: These
"mandates" were received over the years as physically materialized writings and
each contained an instruction at the bottom that it was to be destroyed by fire
no later than the publication date of The URANTIA Book. Reportedly,
however, Dr. Sadler and Christy were given permission to retain some beyond that
date which were destroyed immediately upon the death of Christy. On the other
hand, copies of the "mandates" made by Forum members were reportedly extant
after that year. These might constitute a body of "secret communications" worthy
of NSA interest.]
– (July through
October) Three URANTIA Foundation Trustees and several staff members resign
in reaction against Martin Myers’ actions and policies.
[NOTE 2: The question
has never been answered whether these trustees and staff members might have been
influenced by synthetic telepathy. The fact is that at least one 533
Diversey Parkway, Foundation/Brotherhood part-time office worker reports having
herself heard "voices" in her head which she continues to the day of this
writing to believe were genuinely supernal in origin. These, she says, supported
Vern Grimsley's "messages" and directed her into performing certain undisclosed
activities which she describes as being seemingly mundane, but which she
maintains nevertheless were purported to her as being necessary to help ward off
the nuclear holocaust (WW III). She alludes to having knowledge of others like
herself who heard similar "voices", and there were also rumors of "voices" being
heard in that same time-frame in Hawaii by URANTIA Book readers there. (Also
see, 1990 "Helena Sprague" letter)]
– The new URANTIA
Foundation Board of Trustees at this time consists of three of Vern Grimsley's
college fraternity brothers: Foundation President Martin Myers, Hoite
Caston and Richard Keeler (as of July). Also on the board are Patricia Sadler
Mundelius (who, of course, bears the honored Sadler name), and Neal Waldrop (as
of August), a Foreign Service Officer with a NSA background..
– (October 1) Martin
Myers quits his upper managerial bank job and assumes full-time URANTIA
Foundation Executive Directorship.
– (October 30) URANTIA
Foundation Trustees formally disenfranchise the URANTIA Brotherhood
and evict it from their shared headquarters at 533 Diversey Parkway, Chicago.
– A New Zealand
channeling group (four members) is introduced to The URANTIA Book by a channeled
purported celestial named, "Abraham", self- identified as being the same Abraham
who is the Biblical "father of the Jewish race". This is the
beginning of TeaM as such. After this, members of the group reportedly took TeaM
to URANTIA Book-oriented internet listserves, newsgroups, and web- forums – as
well as to URANTIA Book study groups – where they carried on a process of
recruitment. The goal, according to one purported celestial, was to create at
least one or two channelers in every study group. (See also, 1985)
Then-recently-resigned, former URANTIA Foundation Trustee Helena Sprague writes
that "Martin [Myers] has been heard, with several present, to bestow approval of
the midwayers on one individual and to tell another, 'The midwayers are not
pleased with you . . . you are in league with Lucifer.'" This leaves one with
the distinct impression that Myers also may have heard "voices" and believed
himself to have been in direct contact with purported celestials. It is
therefore possible that his guidance was not limited to extant copies of
previously materialized "mandates" or "instructions" (see, 1989 "Executive
[NOTE: Many accused Myers of having a
"chosen person" attitude. Speculatively something of the sort might be expected
to have developed if intra-cerebral voices, claiming to be midwayers, had told
Myers that Christy's "torch" or "mantel" of Urantia movement leadership had been
passed to him instead of to Vern Grimsley. (See, 1982 NOTE 3)]
– Elizabeth Y.
Fitzhugh's ad appears in some New Age newspapers promoting her channeling of a
purported entity named "ORION" (she uses the upper case -- this is
the same name as what is believed to be a MKULTRA, ORD, or U.S. Naval
Intelligence program which includes, among other things, "electronic brain
invasion" (see, 1958). One of the ad's two favorable blurbs says:
"I found . . . that I could listen to
the ORION spokesperson as though I were listening to music or observing a
natural scene. . . . I became totally absorbed by the utter beauty of the voice
and the language."
It is signed, "S.G.,
Boston, VA". The only listing in the telephone directory for the
Boston area in 1990 conforming to those initials is Sidney
Gottlieb, known to be the then retired former director of MKULTRA.
Boston is a small, U.S. postal rural delivery area connected to a combination
post office and general store. Gottlieb's retirement location there is well
1991 – A URANTIA Book
study group member in Woods Cross, Utah begins channeling a purported celestial
named "Ham". This becomes the second TeaM group, and the first to
appear in the United States. For a number of years thereafter the procedure for
a study group to obtain a "teacher" to channel was that they must first
telephone their request to the Woods Cross channeler, who would forward it on to
the purported celestial during a "contact". It is now presumably just as
possible for the massive email and telephone monitoring programs currently being
run by NSA and its data-sharing partner nations to flag any interest voiced in
these communications mediums by persons desiring "personal" or group "teachers"
("purported celestials" who are believed to communicate intra-intellect) as it
is for them to flag the words "cocaine" or "bomb". It should be noted that not
all who desire these "teachers" get them.
[NOTE 1: Although I have found no direct
connection between the Woods Cross group and either the CIA or the NSA, Utah is
the center of Mormonism, and Mormons have long been especially sought out for
recruitment into the U.S. Intelligence/Security community. It may be speculated
that widespread support for secret intelligence projects might be found within
2: TeaM has not to this date subjected itself to any testing procedures such as
those to which Dr. Sadler subjected the physically materialized text (as well as
the channeling-like activities which preceded it). Neither has TeaM so far
attempted to correlate the reception of intra-cerebral "teachers" to previous
open expressions of a desire for the same on electronic communications media. If
TeaM wants to behave responsibly and to find anything approaching mainstream
acceptance in the Urantia Book reader community, it needs to rule out synthetic
telepathy as well as ordinary psychological delusion as providing the platform
for its purported celestial "teachers". Also the finding of MKULTRA fingerprints
all over "A Course In Miracles" demands that its antecedents be thoroughly
investigated as well!]
1991-1992 – A
manuscript copy of this writer's, "URANTIAGATE: The Conspiracy Theory",
consisting of much that appears here, is mailed to the URANTIA Foundation at its
headquarters office, to each individual Foundation Trustee, and to other
1992 – Martin Myers is
dismissed as a URANTIA Foundation Trustee. He will be successfully
sued to relinquish his position as President.
– Neal Waldrop resigns
as Trustee, and is reportedly transferred by the U.S. State
Department to Australia and New Zealand.
1993 – Revised Spanish
language translation is published. It has flaws of its own and
continues many of the 1986 version's problems.
– U.S. Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms officers and David Koresh's Branch Davidians
exchange gunfire at the Davidian compound outside of Waco, Texas.
This precipitates a 51-day FBI siege which ends in a conflagration that gutted
the building which the cult was defending and left Koresh, who followed a
"voice" which he believed to be that of "God", and 82 of his followers,
including children, dead. Autopsies revealed that a number of the adult male
victims did not die by flames but had received twin fatal gunshot wounds in
their heads which had been administered by a person or persons unknown during
[NOTE1: For what it is
worth, convicted Watergate burglary conspirator, G. Gordon Liddy, maintained
on his syndicated radio talk-show that the FBI hostage rescue teams, such as
besieged the Branch Davidians, cross-train with Navy Seals (Liddy is an ex-FBI
Special Agent and one of Liddy's sons is a Seal Officer). The Seals, the elder
Liddy maintained, are taught a method of execution called "double popping",
which consists of two shots fired in rapid succession into the head of the
victim. The Seals are also known to cover their tracks by fire.]
but perhaps coincidentally, Koresh's presumed direct communication with "God"
ceased immediately following the initial BATF shootout. It was not
restored until after two separate individuals, days apart, crossed FBI lines
surrounding the compound and entered the besieged Davidian headquarters. One
must wonder if some hidden transmitting equipment had been accidentally knocked
out and required repair or replacement. Both people left the compound before the
1994 – Mind control
technology, called "acoustic psycho-correction", capable of producing
intra-cerebral "voices" at the time of the Waco siege surfaces in the media:
"The FBI consulted
Moscow experts on the possible use of a Soviet technique for beaming subliminal
messages to Koresh. The technique uses inaudible transmissions that
could have convinced Koresh he was hearing the voice of God inside his head."
(Newsweek, Feb. 7, 1994 – emphasis added. See also, 1972, 1974)
[NOTE: Although the
Russian device was not used on David Koresh, American Rifle Association
President and movie actor, Charlton Heston, had been considered for the "voice"
role. If similar technology was already being used on Koresh and
others it would have been a closely guarded secret, even possibly from the FBI
itself! The Russian-developed equipment is presently being manufactured in the
USA for commercial sales. The University of Kansas, where Vern Grimsley was
employed in its Psychology Department (see, 1960-1962), was the only reported
organization that I found which held a symposium on the device and its
technology (at its Medical College). The device reputedly was originally
designed to be used as an electro-psycho-therapeutic technique (see, 1951), but
was reportedly used by Russians during their war in Afghanistan (1979-1989) to
free (cure?) the minds of their own troops from their moral inhibitions against,
as well as from guilt resulting from, the atrocities which they were expected to
commit there. The CIA, of course, had trained and supplied Osama bin Laden and
others to fight against the Soviets, and it is a possibility, if not a
likelihood, that some of this equipment fell into both bin Laden's and the CIA's

Thought Adjuster: "If the finite mind of man is unable to comprehend
how so great and so majestic a God as the Universal Father can descend from his
eternal abode in infinite perfection to fraternize with the individual human
creature, then must such a finite intellect rest assurance of divine fellowship
upon the truth of the fact that an actual fragment of the living God resides
within the intellect of every normal-minded and morally conscious Urantia
[Earth] mortal. The indwelling Thought Adjusters are part of the eternal Deity
of the Paradise Father. Man does not have to go farther than his own inner
experience of the soul's contemplation of this spiritual-reality presence to
find God and attempt communion with him." (62 B, 5:0:1)

The Urantia Book, Urantia Foundation,
Urantia Fellowship, and the Urantia three concentric circle symbol above (Banner
of Michael) represent a modern-day Arian/Gnostic cult. The group began in
Chicago during the early 1930's among high-ranking members of the heretical
Seventh Day Adventist1 sect. The cult gained increasing popularity during the
hallucinogenic 1960s and 70s, as the interrelationships between drugs, the
occult, metaphysics, and the New Age movement were being forged. Urantia is one
of many New Age religious efforts to create spirituality within the context of
the philosophic naturalism and modernism that pervades Western culture.2 ... The
Urantia Book (a.k.a. The Urantia Papers, "God's Bible", the Revelation),
consisting of 2,097 six by eleven inch pages, was complied in 1934-35 and first
copyrighted in 1955. It is a collection of 196 apocryphal "papers" (i.e.
so-called revelations) said to be communicated by various "authors"--i.e. spirit
beings who names are listed in the papers. The book's theme consists of highly
detailed, mythology-like descriptions of (our) universe, surrounding universes,
numerous extraterrestrial spirit beings which are said to inhabit these
universes, the spiritual evolutionary history of planet earth (Urantia), and the
life and teaching of a "Jesus", also called "Christ Michael", a "Creator Son".
The Urantia Foundation has provided multiple copies of the cultic Urantia Book
to libraries across the United States.
As part of the larger "Urantia
Brotherhood", small groups of followers...Societies... hold regular, sometimes
clandestine meetings "to study the book and ... pledge themselves to disseminate
its teachings." These groups are found throughout the United States with large
concentrations in AZ, CA, CO, FL, IL, OR, TX, and WA. Larger societies can
typically be found in cities and towns which draw above-average numbers of New
Age followers, e.g., San Francisco, CA; Boulder, CO; Sedona, AZ, etc.

... Ironically, it was a Seventh-day
Adventist minister and physician who was ultimately responsible for the
publication of the Urantia papers. Dr. William S. Sadler, a psychiatrist and
professor at the University of Chicago and teacher of pastoral counseling at
McCormick Theological Seminary, had spent over a decade debunking and refuting
spiritualism, even assisting magician Harry Houdini in this task. His
better-known works on this subject include THE TRUTH ABOUT SPIRITUALISM (1923)
and THE MIND AT MISCHIEF: TRICKS OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND (1929). However,
researcher Steve Cannon tells about something that eventually turned Sadler
In the appendix of THE MIND AT MISCHIEF
Sadler recounts a story of one investigation into the psychic realm that he
could not debunk. From the summer of 1911 until the time of his writing in 1929
he had a subject under observation who would go into a deep sleep out of which
he could not be awakened. Sadler wrote: "This man is utterly unconscious, wholly
oblivious to what takes place, and, unless told about it subsequently, never
knows that he has been used as a sort of clearing house for the coming and going
of alleged extra-planetary personalities" (MIND, 383). Of the communications
themselves, "I can only say that I have found in these years of observation that
all the information imparted through this source has proved to be consistent
within itself. . . . Its philosophy is consistent. It is essentially Christian
and is, on the whole, entirely harmonious with the known scientific facts and
truths of this age" (MIND, 384). Sadler wanted to say more on the subject, but
the person under investigation would not give his permission to do so.1
Beginning in 1923, Dr. Sadler invited a
group of friends, informally known as The Forum, to examine these intelligences,
which were now rapidly becoming more numerous. While the channeler slept, the
spirits freely answered questions in a manner not unlike that of Edgar Cayce,
the famed "sleeping prophet." Sadler and his cohorts compiled 4000 questions
they wanted the spirits to answer. A few weeks later, the channeler handed Dr.
Sadler a sheaf of 472 pages, answering every question which had been put to
him/them. The channeler's wife told Sadler that the material had been written in
a single evening. By 1935, the last of the messages was delivered, and the
entities asked Dr. Sadler, by now a true believer and an ex-Adventist, that the
work be published.2 Twenty years later THE URANTIA BOOK appeared in print. The
identity of the channeler was kept secret for many years by the Urantia
Foundation. In fact, the board of directors took a pledge of secrecy not to
reveal the human author or its means of transmission. However, in 1991 Martin
Gardner identified the channeler as WILFRED CUSTER KELLOGG, son of Rev. Charles
Leonidis Sobeski Kellogg, a Seventh-day Adventist minister from Vermont. Wilfred
was a shirttail relative of W. K. KELLOGG, founder of the Kellogg's Cornflake
Company, and also happened to be William Sadler's brother-in-law (the men had
married two sisters).
Wilfred moved to Illinois when he
married, and he and his wife lived for a time with Dr. and Mrs. Sadler. He was
one of the founding members of the Urantia Foundation, and his home was half a
block from the present headquarters of the Foundation in Chicago. He died in
The Adventist background of both Kellogg
and Sadler does explain a few things. For example, it's a point of Adventist
doctrine that Jesus is really Michael the Archangel.3 Martin Gardner pointed out
some other interesting parallels with Adventism, notably how the name of an
Adventist friend of Kellogg, G. W. AMADON, appears as an important figure of the
Urantia papers. Gardner's articles were published in the SKEPTICAL INQUIRER,
Spring 1991, with significant corrections in the Fall 1991 issue. The Urantia
Foundation officially has "no comment" on this matter.
