MIMICRY – the action or skill of imitating someone or something.
I haven’t observed the activities on the IG forum for some time. The last time it was when:
1. Jedbot Kenneth introduced strict moderator approval of all posts, so nothing appears live now. Hence, no challenging or revealing posts will ever see the light of day.
2. Access to a membership list was removed, I guess to prevent harvesting of email addresses.
3. Facility to send personal messages (PM) to members was removed, which means no new members can learn that they are talking to an impostor. As for the old members who are in the grip of the illusion… they paid the money which needs to be justified, and they need a crutch which the real author does not feel inclined to offer anyone (good for him).
4. Facility to look at the timestamps was removed, so as not to track the comings and goings of anyone.
5. A few old threads with any trace of the scandal were deleted (no need to explain, the record needs to be clean in order to continue the deceit).
I also have to mention that three years ago Jedbot removed the search facility for non-members after I told him that I’d found a few contradicting posts of his. I asked him about this event, which he swiftly denied. Three days later there was no search for non members. I have an email exchange on the matter.
A couple of months back Jedbot also placed an IP ban on my IP address, which meant no forum access. Yeah, right. This was fantastic news. For a long time I was contemplating getting a VPN, but since nothing illegitimate came from my end – there was no valid reason to spend extra money.
JedKen gave me the reason, and I embraced it fully, considering other possibilities that it provides now. Thank you!
I had a look at the Invisible Guru forum after some period of being occupied elsewhere. Hmm… same old same old. The formula of ensnaring minds and emotions remains unchanged:
Offer your wisdom in the form of a written dialogue (with a ‘student’ of course)
Plato, Jed and numerous others deployed this form. It sets an instant tone – you are the ignorant seeker, they – a fountain of wisdom in a position of authority. Now we have Ken joining the fold.
Make it a group affair
Groups have incredible power over people and are the best tools for keeping one ‘in the bosom’ and fully hooked. Think ‘Facebook’ and how it influences the world now. Remember, most humans have sheep mentality. Some, however, are shepherds and prefer to FORM the groups, usually with a well-defined hidden agenda. I don’t have to remind you that every ‘enlightened’ self-professed ‘teacher’ always runs some form of a group.
I don’t know if this below is true or deceit by design. However, I do know there is activity around the man by way of people coming and meeting him here in Cambodia. They all paid up, of course.
I was told he didn’t feel like the man of the books in person. ‘Something was missing‘ as it was expressed. Well, that’s because 1) he is not. 2) what are your expectations as far as gurus go? Of gods?
Provide some freebies
We know that Jed does that too in the form of free short plays. It captures the audience that little bit further. Jedbot Kenneth provides his own versions, in the form of breathing exercises. Just when does one man become an authority on breath technique is beyond me. In fact, it is beyond me that you people NEED to be taught how to fucking breathe. No really…. do you? You forgot how to take air in and then let it out? How are we all still alive?
All I can say here… poison is free too.
Make the content personal
Humans are suckers for personal connections. Make them feel special, even ‘chosen’, and they will do just about anything for ya. Kenneth, our master manipulator, has learnt that waayy back. Personal invitations do the trick in this case.
Having said the above, I also have people from Canada contacting me now, since the search for the name ‘Kenneth Mcmordie’ leads to this website. Most never heard of Jed McKenna and were looking for Ken. They are delighted to find where Ken varnished to. They tell me about other enlightening magical events of his past life that Kenneth Mcmordie used to create while residing in his home country. Delivered to them personally and with the unexpected miracle twist: the money and the promised land vanish simultaneously! A miracle!
The price per person doesn’t seem to vary much: always around 2-3 thousand mark. When one pools the gullible folks to a respectable big crowd – the income rocks. However, people may be less inclined to chase someone for three thousand bucks, but they never forget the act of having been duped.
I have the details, as usual.
Here is one interesting situation to consider.
Since our Jed chooses to remain silent on the matter – the name of Jed McKenna, the person who writes about Truth, will be forever associated with a scam.
His name and the name of our very own scam artist, Jedbot Kenneth Mcmordie (had to put this in full, Google will index, lo) will always appear in close proximity. Not that either of them cares. It works, it puts the bread on the table, right?
… don’t you love life and its delicious ironies?
