John Mack, Esalen, UFOs, & Mars Colonization

Recent article at Vanity Fair on John Mack and “ET” (I have commented as “Plasmate”)
Of special interest to the CF research:

After the cold war ended, Mack studied consciousness expansion with Stanislav Grof, a Czech-born psychoanalyst who had experimented with L.S.D. Grof and his wife, Christina, had developed a breathing discipline called Holotropic Breathwork to induce an expanded state of consciousness. In one breathwork session with Russians at California’s Esalen Institute, Mack recounted that he became, “a Russian-father in the 16th century whose four-year-old son was being decapitated by Mongol hordes.’’ He owed a lot to the Grofs, Mack later said. “They put a hole in my psyche, and the U.F.O.’s flew in.” [Italics added]

“With 78,000 applications in two weeks, this is turning out to be the most desired job in history,” Mars One CEO and co-founder Bas Lansdorp said in a statement. “These numbers put us right on track for our goal of half a million applicants.” [Mars One’s Red Planet Colony Project (Gallery)]

“Mars One is a mission representing all humanity, and its true spirit will be justified only if people from the entire world are represented,” Lansdorp said. “I’m proud that this is exactly what we see happening.”

The announcement of Mars One’s application flood comes in the middle of a big week for manned Mars exploration. Scientists, engineers, NASA officials and a range of other Red Planet exploration advocates are currently meeting in Washington, D.C. for the Humans 2 Mars summit, which runs through Wednesday (May 8).

And today, famed Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin released his new book, “Mission to Mars: My Vision for Space Exploration(National Geographic Books), which was written with veteran space reporter (and columnist) Leonard David.

  1. A more subtle read is the possibility of social engineering the idea (lol) of a new frontier, in an attempt to save the Capitalist hegemony – which flounders soon after expansion stops.

  2. In 1969 I went on a course run by sir George Trevelyan at a big mansion in Shrewsbury, 4 members of the Esalen institute where there along with “Rock” of Findhorn fame, unfortunately I can’t remember their names. The course was about different ways of uplifting your mind to be aware of higher energies, the Esalen lot were in the acid messiah phase, it was interesting, one of them told the story of how he was a poor cog in some office, he used to come home to a bedsit and get infuriated by the neighbours playing Sergeant Pepper through the floor underneath him. To cut a long story short he realised one day that he was furious because he actually liked the music, (he was a classical music buff ) , he made friends with the neighbours, dropped acid in the park and was at the point I met him your classic long haired hippy with a guitar.

  3. There is a chan meditation taught by DR shen where one decomposes the body focalising on specific areas and developing it in a seated posture. Its is connected to tai chi and must not be performed lying down.
