Before ‘Jed’ Became The Phoenix Jed

Over a year ago I wrote about the "Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing" first proposal here, which to me looked like a strong selling pitch for a commercial product. Reading the proposal made me realise that the subtle promise of instant salvation in the books was largely a serious survival push of one man. It completely … Continue reading Before ‘Jed’ Became The Phoenix Jed

The Search Is Over: ‘Jed McKenna’ Mystery Solved

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.

There is some kind of chapter listing and an excerpt on the website. More of the same scathing irony (I really don't think … Continue reading Get Your Wallet Out: Jed Talks 2

A fictitious account of events that only vaguely reflects factual reality, but looks as an autobiography. No company address for Wisefool Press, with numerous PO boxes and disposable … Continue reading All These Teachers… Where’s Truth?

Peder Sweeney Entries

I was asked numerous times via e-mail to allow access to Peder Sweeney entries. As some of you are aware, the entries were open last year. I closed them because people took full advantage of the information, but being human animals - they also did their best to bash the EM in return. By now … Continue reading Peder Sweeney Entries
