I have the name and all the particulars.
Many candidates were mentioned, many names argued over: Peder Sweeney and August Turak, Stephen Gray (Adyashanti) and a Richard Rose student, Thomas Pynchon and Richard Bach, Kenneth McMordie and…. on and on. I went with my intuition which said: none of the above.
Well… the answer is – none of the above.
To all those who accused me of lacking intuition and relying solely on my (clear) Mind: there are bucket loads of intuition in this body. It guided me in the right direction, in the same way it did with Kenneth McMordie’s story. Plus, as usual, sheer dumb luck which I also seem to have bucket loads of.
Not one, but TWO big mysteries uncovered in three years. Not bad for a true dumb ass like myself, and I intend to write about all the dumb asses of the world soon. But like in the tagline for the Wisefool Press website – “The Search Is Over”. As a matter of fact, I find this convergence quite amusing.
I want to thank all those who contributed to this in their own ways, be it aggressive, persuasive, friendly, hostile or secretive. You may not have wanted to spill the beans, but each one of you inadvertently parted with the tiniest bits of information which in the end contributed to solving the riddle. THANK YOU.
As I kept repeating over and over.. it is about generating profits first and foremost, and the only way to make money on ‘enlightenment’ without any corresponding hassle is to write a book on ‘enlightenment’ – anonymously.
Forget about ‘enlightenment’. Go make some money, and this below expresses the overall orientation of the project (the insiders call the Jed McKenna franchise ‘a project’):
This website is about generating truly absurd amounts of income, totally out of proportion to any risk or effort. Pretty cool, huh?
Yes… if it’s true. If it’s true, it’s the coolest thing there is.
We call it Enlightened ********* [name withdrawn] because a new paradigm of prosperity is represented here: A paradigm of effortless abundance.
It is a good reflection of the state of the mind of people involved. The rest uses words such as ‘fortune makers’, ‘perpetual income’, ‘virtual investment’, ‘e-wealth’ and purely marketing jargon. Oh, and ‘charity’. There is always that word – charity. Kenneth used it too, without being tangibly charitable.
Despite my seemingly anti-Jed rants I recognise his depth of Clarity and do not harbour any ill feeling towards the man. Strangely, I do not harbour any feeling at all. I thought arriving at the name would be exhilarating, but all I feel is – nothing. Flat as a pancake.
However, remember Jed’s expression: Truth at any cost. Which may just come to bite him in the ass.
What am I going to do about it? I don’t yet know. Perhaps, I should write a Trilogy of my own, what do you think?
- Book One Impersonating Jed: The Invisible Guru Tale
- Book Two Being Jed McKenna: The Damnedest Tale
- Book Tree Get Real: Sod Off ‘Enlightenment’ Tale
Time will tell.
Note: ‘Jed’ is just as wordy in his non-spiritual writings, and not particularly discrete. He does have a sister and a family, and I spent a few fascinating hours getting myself acquainted with his numerous life activities. He never seems to rest.
The dude is pretty much mainstream, a privileged genetic material and background, leading to a successful life game. But he never wandered the world and never ate out of any dumpsters. Keep that in mind when destroying your real tangible worlds over a fairy tale story.
