#Zombienomicon (R) Eisegesis selected for PKD Film Festival!

The Philip K. Dick Film Festival has officially selected Zombienomicon Eisegesis to be part of its competition in 2017. We are in the virtual reality / new media / script category.

This is a great honor and I hope we both do justice to the memory of the complex genius of PKD as well as earn accolades for all the hard work that has gone into the Zombienomicon (R) project over the last seven years.

There is a permanent link to Zombienomicon Eisegesis in the lefthand sidebar, and above it a link to the graphic novel which is a slice out of the worlds on the website. Both the GN and the website were provided to the PKD Film Festival for their event.

I hope people love exploring both the worlds of PKD and the ever expanding cosmos of Zombienomicon (R)!

 

1960s subliminals – possible fake, if so it’s a brilliant one

THEY LIVE

MKNAOMI was the code name for a joint Department of Defense/CIA research program lasting from the 1950s through the 1970s. Unclassified information about the MKNAOMI program and the related Special Operations Division is scarce. It is generally reported to be a successor to the MKDELTA project and to have focused on biological projects including biological warfare agents—specifically, to store materials that could either incapacitate or kill a test subject and to develop devices for the diffusion of such materials.

“Outside the limit of our sight, feeding off us, perched on top of us, from birth to death, are our owners! Our owners! They have us. They control us! They are our masters! Wake up! They’re all about you! All around you!” -Street Preacher from “They Live”

MKULtra’s Purpose

According to the hearing report, the project was intended to “develop a capability in the covert use of biological and chemical materials.”[1] The motivation was also defensive, in that many were afraid during the Cold War that the Russians and Chinese had already developed weapons in this area. As the project’s proponents noted:

The development of a comprehensive capability in this field of covert chemical and biological warfare gives us a thorough knowledge of the enemy’s theoretical potential, thus enabling us to defend ourselves against a foe who might not be as restrained in the use of these techniques as we are.[2]

Officially authorised in 1953, by 1955, project creep had expanded the CIA’s authority under MKUltra to include the following:

Discovery of the following materials and methods [including those]:

which will promote the intoxicating affect of alcohol;
which will render the induction of hypnosis easier or otherwise enhance its usefulness;
which will enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion during interrogation and so called “brain-washing;”
which will produce amnesia for events preceding and during their use;
[which will produce] shock and confusion over extended periods of time and capable of surreptitious use; and
which will produce physical disablement such as paralysis of the legs, acute anemia, etc.[3]

There is a veritable rockpool of MK projects, and some eerie out-there real life X Files Council of 9 whacked out fugazi shit into the bargain.

The overall aim in the 1980s was to reduce the population to a state of either total disbelief and paranoia or total belief and sheep like obedience. Either outcome was fine, because previous behavioural studies had shown that 9 out of 10 would turn sheep, and 1 in 10 would turn goat, and a handful would turn neither and end up as killer psychopaths or short lived truth tellers… or both.
