Shadow History of Burners Part 4 – Occult Rituals of the Cult

How did Burning Man begin? Larry Harvey says “I don’t really remember” and “I’ve got all these stories I tell”. Only 2 of the current ruling group ever went to Burning Man on the beach. On Michael Mikel’s official Burning Man bio, it says he joined in 1988. However, in court testimony in the 2007 John Law suit, it was established that nobody from the Cacophony Society attended any Burning Man events until 1989. Should we believe Burning Man’s web site, or statements in a Court of Law?  Incidentally, in this case the court heard testimony from Stuart Mangrum that Mikel was not telling the truth.

In the “official” history, as recorded by Brian Doherty and others, an artist named Mary Grauberger was burning statues on the beach on the solstice. However, Mary insists that she wasn’t. Her roommate Janet Lohr, Larry’s long time girlfriend, said Mary sometimes made driftwood sculptures for the tide to reclaim, but never effigies to burn.

In earlier interviews, Larry Harvey claimed a number of times that Burning Man began in 1985.

So what really happened? Who was burning a Wicker Man on the beach in 1985?

After 4 years of research, I have finally uncovered the true story of the origins of Burning Man.

  10. For the record that is not the temple last year you are showing in your video slide. Seems like you don’t go or have no clue to what the temple is or its location. Carry on with the conspiracy chem trail internet Satan things. But at least get your shit talk correct.

    • Yes, you are right. Burnersxxx has obviously never been to the NV burn, does not know what the temple is, and did not show the temple picture you expected. Obvioulsy this runs his entire argument to ground.

      Enjoy your comped ticket, Gordon!

  11. I have to listen to it again it is so fascinating.
    Circa roughly 1968 to 1972, I used to help neighbours with beachfront property build a straw man from old clothes, including sneakers. Then we burned it on July 4th.
