Between July and August of 1973, Dr. Timothy Leary and a four-person telepathy team separated themselves from the walls of Folsom Prison, where Leary had been incarcerated for many years on a marijuanna possession charge. Leary at this time had spent many months under solitary confinement. Sources say that he emerged from his sensory deprivation still smiling. There was something in his mind telling him, a feeling--a vibration that he had to do something, prison or no prison.
In the middle of the Dog Days of Dog star Sirius, Leary, Leary's wife, Joanna Leary, a fellow prisoner Wayne Benner and a journalist had a collective hallucination, shared without the aid of psychedelics.   In 19 stages of bursts of communication came the following;

(summarized by Robert Anton Wilson as 'Starseed Transmission' as follows;

.
It is time for life on Earth to leave the planetary womb and learn to walk through the stars.
Life was seeded on your planet billions of years ago by nucleotide templates which contained the blueprint for gradual evolution through a sequence of biomechanical stages.
The goal of evolution is to produce nervous systems capable of communicating with and returning to the Galactic Network where we, your interstellar parents, await you.
Life on planet Earth has now reached this halfway point, established itself, and evolved through larval mutations and metamorphoses to the seven brain stages.
At this time the voyage home is possible.
Assemble the most intelligent, advanced, courageous of your species, divided equally between men and women. Let every race, nationality, and religion be represented.
You are about to discover the key to immortality in the chemical structure of the genetic code, within which you will find the scripture of life. The time has come for you to accept the responsibility of immortality. It is not necessary for you to die.
You will discover the key to enhanced intelligence within the chemistry of the nervous system. Certain chemicals, used wisely, will enable your nervous system to decipher the genetic code.
All life on your planet is a unity. All life must come home.
Total freedom, responsibility and interspecies harmony will make the voyage possible. You must transcend larval identities of race. culture and nationality. Your only allegiance is to life. The only way you will survive is to make the voyage home.
The Japanese people are the most advanced race on your planet and will give protection to the company.
We are sending a comet to your solar system as a sign that the time has come to look to the stars.
When you arrive back home you will be given new instructions and powers. Your sperm ship is the flower of terrestrial life. As soon as the company is formed and the voyage begun, war, poverty, hatred, fear will disappear from your planet and the most ancient prophecies and celestial visions will be realize.
Mutate!
Come home in glory.
Later that year, Comet Kohoutek (as predicted) arrived in the solar system and spaced out into the sun.

Here we go again.

Which part of this do you not think is loopy and delusional? None of the predictions have come true, have they, in the ensuing 46 years?

For those who are new around here, dom, in his former incarnation as david (found in the archives as either "anonymous" or "williams") had a considerable eruption of fandom for Leary's Starseed era "SMI2LE" ("Space Migration, Increased Intelligence, and Life Extension") stuff in 2015 that went on for quite a while.

[why is it that i see the superscript in "SMI2LE" in what i've entered, but then it vanishes in "preview" or when the post appears? The superscript is tagged "P>>KBD>>SUP", fwiw.]

"Llee Heflin, a San Francisco writer and follower of Aleister Crowley, published what he claimed was a message from the comet in 1974 under the title Words from Kohoutek: The Message of the Serpent and the Dove."

If anyone hasn't emptied their wastebin for a few decades, maybe we can compare Heflin's pamphlet against Leary's and discover how Thelemic Tim actually was.

Kohoutek, like the 1987 "Harmonic Convergence", the "Millennium" in 2000, the end of the Mayan calendar epoch in 2012, etc. was a very big deal in alternative circles, presaging huge events, until each came and went not with a bang but a whimper.

I was on Heflin's mailing list back then (as a precocious 15 year old Thelemite) and recall getting promo material for the book from his Level Press but did not bite. Perhaps someone did; i am curious.

Was there a specific timespan given?    How did a Professor of Pyschology give this group- channeling session credence?   He admitted in posterioty that he did some crazy things in the 60s.  Did he ever dismiss this as part  of the madness of the (post) 60s?   I don't know.   It sounds like a total diversion from his intellectual work.  What was he thinking?   Even RAW gave it credence.

So far, so good.

It is not necessary for you to die.

This is a primary concept in New-Age/Outer-Space cosmology. Everyone latches on to promises of living forever. That part of us that "does not die" is already, immortally established before anyone was born into this valley of tears. The Great Work, in its first phase (outer order) is to gain control of one's unruly vehicle and its subconscious impulses.

The second phase (inner order) involves establishing a connection with that pre-birth consciousness ... said connection (called HGA by some) will guide or advise one in how to clean up "past lives," also known as ancestral chi or genetic memory.

The third phase (supernal order) is direct contact with, or overshadowing by, said pre-birth consciousness (Atman, the True Self, the Universal Self).

The fourth phase (the natural state) is when all (all) of the above is seen to be illusion and disappears, leaving whatever is left with nothing.

Certain chemicals, used wisely, will enable your nervous system to decipher the genetic code.

This is true. But the real goal is to then engage that deciphering without the external chemicals. Leary apparently did this in jail, to a certain extent, but there is no evidence that he was able to fully function in daily life without said chemicals ... right up to his dying day. Then he died.

Supernal Order. "Home" is the Higher/True Self.

Are there any akashic mind-readers among us? It doesn't matter what RAW gave, but what you, or I, or any other, gives.

My favourite part of this is 'The Japanese people are the most advanced race on your planet and will give protection to the company.'  😛 

 

Having lived and studied there, and seeing how they handle their disasters and corruption (Fukishima, Yakuza, Okinawan scandals etc) I find this one very entertaining.  They are some of the most depressed and self/country loathing people I have met.  

 

I think that's interesting about the receiving the 'same vision' in different prison cells but where is the proof as always?

I don't know if this is true, but the Japanese have the highest IQ of any "race" or "ethnicity.

Yeah, they say that living together in crowded conditions does wonders for the psyche. If I'm not mistaken, isn't Japan one of, or the, most most densely-populated places around?

but where is the proof as always? 

The proof is in the pudding. As I just said (over on the RTC thread where I wasn't supposed to be, the proof is found when one reads the transmission, text, or papyrus, and it makes sense. Who cares if three people in isolated faraday cages got the same 100-page text, verbatim? That's only proof of simultaneous reception. What does the doc say? Does it make sense? Does it offer understanding of difficult subjects, or offer practical techniques for survival or transcending? If so ... good!  If not, burn the books and throw the author in the (metaphorical) pit.

There is a whole generation or two out there (out here) who refer to themselves as "Starseeds." They mostly seem to have bizarre notions about themselves and many have been prescribed prozac (or worse).

There certainly is an inter-dimensional aspect to the Great Work, and most serious aspirants start out with asana, pranayama, and banishing. This stuff isn't done in order to gain illumination ... it's done to gain control of one's dork, so that it doesn't act up when "illumination" comes along.

My point is: Like many so-called Thelemites and other Prodigies, most Starseed children haven't done the work.

Extremely good point BUT I grew up in the Netherlands, which is far denser than Japan (1083 ppl per square mile vs 865 in Japan) and also lived and worked in Korea (denser still, 1339 ppl per square mile) and neither culture seemed to be so down on themselves and jumping in front of trains every week, or locking themselves in their rooms for years (hikikomori), as in Japan.  I think there may be something deeper to this malaise and blackness they feel there.  What exactly it is, I am not sure.  But I sure felt it like a blanket.  Perhaps it has something to do with the war...not sure.

I have heard that the Jewish people and Japanese have high IQ’s
However i believe the Japanese are just practical.
I have heard that it’s in the Japanese language which has been attributed to a buddhist who purposefully tried to take contexts of self and leave notions of a doer out, to focus on results.
I’m not sure if it worked out over there.
But i have heard this hinders the individual aspect urge of being.
Here in America at work here is a lot of political posturing and the person executing the result is of more import than the result. So a good solution offered by some one will be cut down in order to make a maneuver or if the solution can be stolen then it will. which is the better case .

“ This stuff isn't done in order to gain illumination ... it's done to gain control of one's dork, so that it doesn't act up when "illumination" comes along. “

The Japanese are considered to be a shame culture so when the dork acts up they might gut it.

As for the Nordic my favorite story illustration I have heard is that one in the forest noticed another a mile away setting up residency so he started sharpening his axe.

“ You must transcend larval identities of race. culture and nationality “
