COVAX through the Looking Glass Part 8

And you’ve just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low

Like an entire hive of parisitoid wasp larvae eating their way out of zombie caterpillars, deep state groups have now emerged from their hollowed out and compromised corporations and institutions, eating their way out of the societal-field of humanity – in a desperate attempt to accelerate control. A bust-out of Leviathon.

Recall from part 7 that several parasitoid larvae remain behind in the still living caterpillar, controlling its behaviour by means of mRNA secreted into its bloodstream which reconfigure its identity all the way down to the genetic level. The zombie caterpillar still alive but neither moving nor eating, stands guard over the parasitoid cocoons as they transform into mature wasps.

The analogues to the parasitoids – deep state operatives infiltrated into key positions, subvert the chain of command and standard operational procedures of the institution in question by means of the analogues to mRNA – malign morphic memes that disable its ability to resist and render it subservient to programming. They reconfigure the identity of the institution by means of insidious programming. This mind control aligns with the interest of the parasitoids that have eaten their way out, as they transform inside their cocoons into something new, yet also disturbingly familiar. Nested in turn within these groups of parasitoids are the hyper-parasitic humans that facilitate them and run the show.

Governments, key corporations, and key institutions across the planet have now been compromised in grand synchrony. Human society itself is under threat of losing its identity.

Mind Control is a system of influences which break the identity of an individual (his/her beliefs, behavior, thoughts and feelings) and replace it with a new identity

Steve Hassan (1988/2015) Combating Cult Mind control. Freedom of Mind Press

For a parasitic few to rule over the many, it has always been necessary for the many to have their will to resist that rule broken. We have seen how, with this power, the first lords of capital capitalised on the industrial revolution, monopolised technology and, rather than merely abolishing it, streamlined, optimized, and perfected slavery.

This revolution in misery began on the West African coast, where the debt-peddling, arms-dealing, slave trading conglomerates would inveigle African tribal leaders through debt into exchanging war captives in return for weapons of mass destruction. The arms trade was also a key component of the slave trade, both of which drove the industrial revolution, in turn driving the Empire’s war machine. All of this was made possible by bits of paper bearing obscure symbols. The facsimile of money and the privilege to issue it as debt, is a form of parasitical mimicry – the ultimate bait & switch. It’s the master morphic meme for human parasites, that enables all other forms.

Eventually in this African arms race, all pretence of self-defence was discarded and tribes engaged in raiding purely for slaves, becoming cogs in an engine of human extraction. The merchants even colluded with African rulers to trap their own subjects in debt. These debt-ensnared subjects were forced to sell their own dependents, children, wives, sometimes even themselves into slavery.

Legends arose in Nigeria of the “flesh debt” enforced by a secret society of cannibalistic witches who slipped bits of human flesh into innocent neighbours’ food. The society visited the unfortunate debtors at night informing them that they had to hand over members of their own families for the witches to consume. The truth was not far off from this morbid tale.

This very real power of fraudulent debt is based on deception and illusion – it is witchcraft, it is mind control.

“…the process by which individual or collective freedom of choice and action is compromised by agents or agencies that modify or distort perception, motivation, affect, cognition or behavioral outcomes”

Philip Zimbardo

The human produce of this perpetual destabilisation was shackled in holds and transported to the Americas under the cruellest conditions in human history. There slaves were sold on to the slave owners who worked them to early death, or a fate worse than one, on their plantations. The world’s first slave society in service to a nation’s capitalist industry producing cotton, the raw material for the automated loom – the inspiration for Babbage’s difference engine and an early conceptual origination of the computer.

Again, we can look to African folklore, particularly from the diasporic religion of Voodoo, for insight into zombies. Familiar to nearly everyone now, the term has its roots in Haitian rural folklore as dead persons physically revived by the act of necromancy. A zombie remains under the control of the necromancer as a personal slave, having no will of its own. Another tradition holds that the soul of a living person can be captured to enhance the power of the necromancer and render the remaining body subservient, forcing it into slave labour.

Professor Amy Wilentz links the concept to the influence of Haitian slavery. According to her, slave drivers on the plantations, who were usually slaves themselves and sometimes voodoo priests, used the fear of zombification to discourage slaves from committing suicide.

Similar stories occurred in South Africa. After rail lines were built to transport migrant workers, stories emerged about “witch trains”. These trains appeared ordinary but were staffed by zombified workers controlled by a witch. The trains would abduct a person boarding at night, and the person would then either be zombified or beaten and thrown from the train a distance away from the original location.

Anthropologist, Zora Neale Hurston believed that affected persons were given a powerful psychoactive drug, while Ethnobotanist, Wade Davis argued that a living person could be turned into zombie through two special powders introduced into the bloodstream. Together these powders were said to induce a deathlike state, in which the will of the victim would be entirely subjected to that of the sorcerer. Davis’s suggestion that Haitian witch doctors can keep “zombies” in a state of pharmacologically-induced trance for many years, has not escaped criticism. However, one need only to observe how modern pimps can turn vice girls into sex slaves – prostitutes, by means of crack cocaine, to understand how “zombie slaves” could be kept in such a prolonged state. One does not have to look far either, to find the real witchdoctors…

They were of course, the merchant-banking, slave-trading, arms-dealing, drug-peddling, sugar barons.

What then was their magic drug that they used to render their slaves soulless and subservient? While such images are gruesomely evocative, we don’t know. However, we do know that cruelty, systematically applied by sociopathic and psychopathic networks of human parasitoids, was enough to break wills over time. The morphic memes of torture and trauma-based mind control injected into the psyches of these poor, unfortunate victims, paralyzed their free-will and effectively rendered them zombies.

Until that is in 1791 when the plantation slaves revolted in Haiti, seized control of the islands and saw off both French and British soldiers. In 1794, the French republic outlawed slavery in its colonies. After Napoleon restored slavery in France and its colonies in 1802, renewed waves of violent resistance in the Caribbean washed over the islands. Slave lords in the West Indies looked on and shook with a mixture of indignation and fear as revolts of ever greater organisation and scale in Barbados, Demerara and Jamaica, tore into the fabric of slaver society well into the 19th century. “Maroon” communities of runaway slaves formed enclaves of freedom. Some African rulers refused trade with the slavers, villagers attacked slave ships, setting the captives free while the slaves themselves began to mutiny onboard. These overlooked events inevitably contributed to the atmosphere of abolition that was suffusing the conscience of the public in Britain. They had broken the voodoo spell.

As we know however, the chains of iron were transformed over time into insidious chains of dew.

We previously touched upon how the slavers modus operandi, in diluted form, was applied also to the workers and their children in the factories and mines that were springing up everywhere. Legions of wage zombies lurching through the smog in the age of automation.

The prisons, the plantations, the factories, the mines, the barracks, the workhouses, the orphanages, the correction facilities, the schools themselves, were systems perfected over the centuries to break the will and identity. Whole societies were socially engineered in this manner.

The apogee of this process was the institution we know as the concentration camp. The British used concentration camps to inter prisoners during the Second Boer War but it wasn’t until 1918 when the Soviet system of Gulags, continuing to 1991, became the first system applied by a government upon its own citizens. This period also bore witness to the rise of the Nazi concentration camps from 1933–1945.

These camps shared the intentional policy of extermination through labour and were designed to ensure that the inmates would eventually die of starvation, untreated disease, and summary executions.

To ensure manageability, it was seen as necessary to break the prisoners as individuals. These were institutions that provided the training grounds and laboratories for the science of mind control and also served the dual purpose of spreading terror among the rest of the population outside of the camps.

For those who survived the initial few months during which the majority died, the feelings of disbelief and anxiety gave way to indifference and despair. Hostility was turned away from their real enemy and toward former friends and family who they felt had deserted them, then towards themselves. Regression to infantile levels occurred over time, turning the majority of prisoners into willing tools of their captors. The final and most bizarre stage occurred when some prisoners (the sociopathic 10%)  identified with their captors, accepting their ideology, even trying to imitate the guards’ uniforms, and behaving cruelly towards their fellow prisoners.

It has been concluded by a survivor, in this case of two Nazi camps, that what happens in an extreme form to the prisoners of such institutions also happens, in a less exaggerated and more insidious manner, to the inhabitants of the great concentration camp called “Greater Germany” or the wider USSR in the case of the Gulags.

These two apparently opposing ideologies, the left and the right, upon further scrutiny reveal the influence of hyper-parasitical mimicry.

All State Socialism, in reality, is State Capitalism in disguise – Deep State Monopoly Capitalism mimicking socialism. This is more than just a clever turn of phrase. It is evident through history.

As established by Anthony Sutton, the financial and industrial oligarchs of the US lent money to Britain, France, Tsarist Russia and Germany during the First World War. All against international law. If anything exacerbates a war, in turn exacerbating woes for populations, it is the supply of money and munitions to each side, not to mention the debt that follows.

In collusion with the British and German financial oligarchy, they then proceeded to co-opt the Russian revolution, first establishing Kerensky – the leader of the moderate socialists, and then funding, supporting and facilitating the Bolshevik revolution to the extent that it would not have been successful without them. The Russian revolutionaries led by Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin were the parasitoids infiltrated into the soviet socialist state. This covert support and facilitation continued through both World Wars and the Cold War.

Sutton also demonstrated that the financial and industrial oligarchs of the US and Great Britain played a substantial role in the rise of the ultimate parasitoid – Hitler and his brand of  National Socialism. They also ensured the post-war investigation of Nazi industrialists was diverted, stifled and muffled and their own involvement obscured.

The hyper-parasites of differing nations have far more in common with each other than their respective peoples who they are supposed to represent. Totalitarianism where the rulers are the ultra-wealthy and everyone else, slaves, is the end goal of both Fascism and Communism.

What transcends the apparently opposing ideologies is the hidden, hyper-parasitic ideology of the Supra-National Deep State.  This secret ideology takes effect through the mechanism of propaganda.

Thousands of years old, the deceitful use of information underwent a revolution from the First World War onwards when it was mass-produced on a global scale. The alleged father of modern propaganda, or public relations as he termed it, was Edward Bernays.

Bernays, a nephew of Sigmund Freud, nested a fear and hatred of society, particularly the herd-instinct which he regarded as irrational and dangerous. This view is akin to that of Elias Canetti, who viewed the crowd as a monstrous and nebulous creature that feeds on people and their identities, and that of Thomas Hobbes before him who viewed society as the great biblical monster – Leviathon.

He extolled the “invisible government” that held Leviathon in check.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”

The mechanism for the subtle manipulation of the morphic field of mankind by means of morphic memes, though ancient, was laid out quite blatantly in his 1928 book – “Propaganda.” It is quite clear from his writing that this “invisible government” was already nested within human society, though it should be clear that it would have no place in a real democratic society.

The influence of this entity extended from the West to East, from Capitalism to Communism, from Allied to Axis powers. A deceitful network of propaganda pitted the peoples of one side against the other by means of mutual enemy images both within and between the opposing societies. The intent as always is to engender discord, distrust, and division in order to rule more effectively.

It is summed up best by Charles Lindbergh Sr, who in 1916 left the Republican Party in disgust at the level of corruption of both parties under:

“…a sinister influence…which, if it is not checked, intends to completely undermine the original purpose of the formation of our Government – change it from the purposes of democracy, and instead make it of a monarchical and plutocratic system, and to bring all the world into one control and one system, which for purposes of deception of the plain people, they would call a “world’s democracy,” but which in fact it is their plan to make the rule of the wealth grabbers, maintained by simple organization of themselves and disorganization of the masses pitting the masses against each other.” Emphasis mine

More than a government, rather a supra-national shadow government, run not by the puppets which appear (with ever decreasing success) to direct individual nation states in accordance with democratic principles, but by the “deep politicians” and the intelligence agencies that take direction from the financial overworld.

After the Second World War, when the ultimate parasitoid, after becoming the ultimate enemy image, had been defeated, networks of “stay-behind” parasitoids were left in place throughout Europe. This was ostensibly to organize resistance in countries potentially overrun by a Soviet invasion. In reality, Operation Gladio was about promoting fear of communism by carrying out false flag attacks in the strategy of tension. Its lowest level operatives, the sleepers, are speculated to have been victims of mind control.

Interestingly, the Axis powers had their own units operating in a similar fashion. The Nazis named their secret guerrilla organization Werwolf. Indeed, Hitler’s own Sturmabteilung, literally Storm Detachment, also known as the Brown Shirts, was a secret paramilitary guerrilla organization that went public and supported his rise to power. Much suppressed is the fact that the financing for these street thugs came from US industrial oligarchs and corporations such as Henry Ford, I.G Farben, General Electric and Standard Oil (now Exxon) up to 1944. After these surviving secret Axis units had been tracked down and defeated, some of them were recruited into the new anti-Soviet stay-behind networks.

In addition to recruiting former Nazi guerrillas, the CIA proceeded to covertly relocate 1600 Nazi scientists and doctors, responsible for murder, slavery, and human experimentation under Operation Paperclip to work on eugenics, chemical/bio warfare agents, and mind control programs.

This led to Project CHATTER in 1947 which involved the testing of drugs on animals and humans for the purposes of interrogation. It centred on the use of anabasine , scopolamine, mescaline, psilocybin and LSD.

In 1950, CIA director and Deep State Politician, Allen Dulles set up Operation Mockingbird, which infiltrated CIA parasitoid operatives into the mainstream media organisations. This had happened previously in 1917 when the J.P. Morgan banking interests infiltrated their own parasitoids as editors for 25 of the major newspapers. Indeed, Dulles himself was a Wall Street Lawyer for Sullivan & Cromwell, the firm that advised JP Morgan and the agent for IG Farben, and major German banks. Dulles was also director of J. Schroder Banking Corporation in New York. The financial overworld had already infiltrated both the media and the CIA, before the CIA infiltrated the corporate media.

The next mind control project was Project ARTICHOKE in 1951 which studied:

  • Hypnosis
  • Forced morphine addiction and subsequent forced withdrawal
  • Induction of  vulnerable states such as amnesia via various drugs

Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?” (CIA document, MORI ID 144686)

It is worth taking a closer look at some of the substances used in these projects.

Anabasine in high doses blocks nerve transmission and causes symptoms similar to nicotine poisoning and ultimately death.

Scopolamine is a drug that makes users suggestible and submissive. It was tested as a truth serum but has reportedly been used by Columbian criminals to induce a zombified state where critical thinking is removed and orders carried out without question and subsequent memory loss.  This would make it a close relative to the long sought for drug that writers described in zombification rituals and a perfect candidate for mind control research.

Mescaline is a psychedelic drug, derived from the Peyote cactus used for over 5700 years in Mexico. It was hailed for its ability to open the gates of an “artificial paradise”. However, interest was stifled, perhaps due to the nausea and vomiting that often accompanied its ingestion.

LSD – LSD, the grandfather of modern psychedelics, was derived by Albert Hoffman in 1938 from ergotamine, an extract of the rye fungus, ergot. Hoffman was working in Switzerland for Sandoz Laboratories, a major pharmaceutical company even then but now a division of Novartis, one of the manufacturers of the mRNA “vaccines.” He was looking for a drug that could stop bleeding after childbirth. He accidentally discovered its psychedelic properties five years later. It had more than a thousand times the potency of mescaline, and Hoffman unwittingly overdosed himself. While not toxic nor addictive, it is said to temporarily expand the sense of self, blurring the boundaries between oneself and the universe and, in high enough doses, bring on ecstatic visions. He was obviously impressed and published his findings in the early 1940’s.

Psilocybin – another psychedelic derived from “magic mushrooms”. Also isolated by Albert Hoffman after New York Banker – Gordon Wasson brought these mushrooms back from Mexico.

LSD and Psilocybin belong to the same family of psychedelic drugs, all possessing a tryptamine base.

The key neuro-transmitter and hormone – serotonin, is a tryptamine but is not psychedelic. It is involved in the modulation of mood, cognition, learning, memory and numerous physiological processes.

DMT, also a tryptamine and the simplest psychedelic, exists in all of our bodies and throughout the animal and plant kingdoms. Its profound psychedelic effects were discovered by Hungarian chemist and psychiatrist Stephen Szára in 1956. He found that the gut breaks down oral DMT as quickly as it is swallowed. After injecting it into himself, he found the secret that South American natives had found thousands of years previously. DMT is actively transported across the blood-brain barrier and taken up by the brain tissues which hunger for it. Enzymes break it down within seconds. But in high enough doses it overwhelms the pineal gland, in the dead centre of the brain, bringing on profound effects.

This process can occur without involving drugs.  Extraordinarily stressful events such as birth, near-death and death generate high levels of DMT and switch off those factors that suppress and break it down.

This has led Dr Rick Strassman to call DMT the “Spirit Molecule.”

DMT, like DNA and mRNA molecules, are analogous to the components of a radio transistor, essential to functioning but terms like “spirit” and “memory” are the business of the morphic fields that exist within and around these molecules and the cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, and organisms the fields shape and govern. Indeed, a DMT surge can be brought on by the deep peacefulness and synchronicity of brain waves engendered by meditation and activities carried out in meditative states. These states can sustain the DMT experience for longer, setting up coherent waves, sympathetic vibrations – harmonious morphic resonance.

For more than two decades following their discovery, researchers administered an array of psychedelic substances to thousands of healthy volunteers and psychiatric patients. Sandoz Laboratories was the sole distributor of LSD to researchers so they could induce what they believed were psychotic states in volunteers. They also recommended that psychiatric doctors take the drug in order to develop empathy with their patients. The doctors reported that the mind-loosening properties enabled them to encounter their own unconscious memories and feelings. There was much hope for psychotherapy. Dozens of scientific articles described remarkable success in treating obsessions, compulsions, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, alcoholism and heroin addiction.



On the orders of Dulles,  ARTICHOKE was expanded and morphed into Project MKULTRA in 1953. MK-ULTRA involved over 30 universities and institutions, and was run by chief scientist and parasitoid – Sidney Gottlieb, earning him titles such as the “Black Sorcerer” and the “Dirty Trickster.” It explored many methodologies to manipulate minds, including:

  • Isolation
  • Sensory deprivation
  • Verbal and physical abuse
  • Covert administration of drugs such as heroin, morphine, MDMA, mescaline, psilocybin, scopolamine, marijuana, alcohol, sodium pentothal, ergine and LSD to both witting and unwitting individuals in a sub-project entitled Operation Midnight Climax.

Gottlieb is the reason LSD found its way to America, although his intentions were in no way benign. He hoped the drug would grant the CIA the power to control human minds, which Dulles believed would lead to global mastery. Gottlieb, who took the drug himself over 200 times, also hoped to unlock the secrets of the universe. He persuaded Dulles to purchase the world’s entire supply from its sole producer – Sandoz.

In the ten years that followed, the stash found its way into prisons in the USA and CIA “safe houses” in Europe and East Asia where it was used in the most extreme experiments in US history, on unwilling or unwitting subjects. Under modes of torture such as electroconvulsive shocks, unknown numbers of victims – prisoners of war, suspected enemy agents, and refugees – “expendables”, died or lost their sanity. Gottlieb  concluded that before he could insert a new mind into someone’s brain, he had to destroy the existing mind.

Psychedelics exert their effects via a blend of three factors:

  • Set – the individual makeup – thoughts, habits, and feelings.
  • Setting – the immediate environment, the people in it and their own set.
  • Drug – the substance itself.

Together these factors profoundly alter all mental functions: perception, emotion, thinking, motivation, body awareness and sense of self. They open up the doorways to heaven or hell.

It is evident that someone being tortured to death has a less than optimum set and setting. It was most likely the torture itself, and the harmful drugs, not LSD, that killed the victims in the coercive experiments.

Indeed, MKULTRA’s own documentation indicates the search was not only for substances that would facilitate mind control but also substances that would enhance an individual’s ability to withstand it.

Substances which will enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so-called “brain-washing”.”

Often the subject receiving LSD would express absolute certainty that they would be able to withstand any form of interrogation, even under torture. It seems that in the Black Experiments, Gottlieb was pushing subjects to the utmost limits of endurance to test the effects of LSD in this regard.

LSD was also used non-coercively on volunteers in US hospitals as Gottlieb wanted to know how ordinary people would react in clinical settings. Several famous people volunteered such as poet Allen Ginsberg and Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. Many reported positive experiences.

The supreme irony is that Gottlieb did not foresee that LSD would leak out of his labs and clinics into the wider population where it fuelled a generational rebellion, entirely counter to the Deep State’s ethos. The counter-culture of the 60’s elevated LSD to the ultimate symbol of protest. Unprecedented numbers of the nation’s youth were mobilised by this non-violent anti-war and civil rights ethos. Gottlieb’s opposite counterpart – Dr Timothy Leary became one of its champions, arguing that LSD, if used correctly, could alter personality in beneficial ways, even reforming convicted criminals. In 1962 he was contacted by Mary Pinchot Meyer, He supplied her with LSD which she used with her lover – President John F. Kennedy. Leary claimed that Meyer influenced Kennedy’s views on nuclear disarmament and rapprochement with Cuba. After the seminal deep state event – Kennedy’s assassination – in 1963, Leary claimed that Meyer phoned him the day after: “They couldn’t control him anymore. He was changing too fast. He was learning too much… They’ll cover everything up. I gotta come see you. I’m scared. I’m afraid.”

The same year Leary was dismissed from Harvard University. He continued his research at a large mansion in New York where he was frequently raided by FBI agents.

In 1964, Meyer was shot dead by a professional hitman.

In 1966 Leary was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and sentenced to prison. However, with the help of the Weathermen, he escaped and together with his wife moved to Algeria where he spent time with Black Panther leader, Eldridge Cleaver. Later the couple went to live in Switzerland.

The cover-up of the JFK assassination employed the US Mockingbird Media in weaving an official narrative of lone nuts with no connection to one another. Indeed, this period first saw the weaponization of the phrase “conspiracy theorist” applied as an enemy image to those concerned with corruption in government and transnational organized crime or just to those who didn’t believe the official narrative, which in the case of the JFK assassination, was (and still is) the majority of the population. This derogatory term has become exceptionally powerful as a tool of mind control. It is only since 2020 that this power has begun to wane.

The ensuing assassinations of Robert F Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jrand Malcolm X throughout this decade along with hundreds of premature deaths of key witnesses, journalists, and researchers, serve to illustrate the US Deep State’s increasing willingness to resort to such methods when dealing with those they could not bribe, blackmail, or threaten.

But the slave-owners were unnerved by the mass awakening and made psychedelic drugs illegal in 1968. Leary was declared “the most dangerous man in America’ by President Nixon. Nixon, who had been complicit in JFK’s murder.

While it cannot be denied that some genuinely sinister phenomena occurred, the root of which can be laid at the door of the deep state, the underlying dynamic of this decade was a revolution in values towards wholeness, integration and synthesis.

LSD was later banned in many other countries by the 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances. This is exceptionally ironic considering the main effect of the Vietnam War was in vastly expanding the CIA’s drug trafficking operations, something the UK Deep State had already perfected.

1971 was also the year that Nixon removed the last vestiges of the gold standard, the dollar was now officially unbacked by anything as were all the other currencies that had been pegged to it. This coincided with the effective removal of the regulations that governed how much money banks were allowed to create. An unprecedented period of fiat money conjuration then ensued. The ultimate drug.

This did not kill the awakened  ideals of the 60’s but it put them into a deep sleep. Like Alice who can’t remember her lines, or who she is:

I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”

In part 9 we will ask Alice…

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small and the ones that mother gives you, don’t do anything at all

Go ask Alice, when she’s ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you’re going to fall

Tell ’em a hookah smoking caterpillar has given you the call

Call Alicewhen she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go
