Some things I couldn’t adequately answer during the interview:
– the significance of the Apple/Newton quote, “a mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone”
The quote is from a poem by William Wordsworth, which refers to a prism. In 1986, a video game was released based around this quote “A Mind Forever Voyaging”, in which “PRISM” was a sentient AI. In 2013 Edward Snowden revealed PRISM as the name of the supercomputer surveillance system used by the NSA and other government agencies to profile and track us. The program was officially launched in 2007.
Wordsworth isn’t just any old poet.
In 1898 Havelock Ellis reported to the Smithsonian Institution: “If it ever should chance that the consumption of mescal becomes a habit, the favorite poet of the mescal drinker will certainly be Wordsworth. Not only the general attitude of Wordsworth, but many of his most memorable poems and phrases cannot — one is almost tempted to say — be appreciated in their full significance by one who has never been under the influence of mescal. On these grounds it may be claimed that the artificial paradise of mescal, though less seductive, is safe and dignified beyond its peers.” At the turn of the century, both William James and Havelock Ellis undertook their study of hallucinogenic agents. James used nitrous oxide (apparently to avoid bad stomach cramps) while Ellis used the newly discovered peyote.
In 1902 William James of Harvard “redefined religion” as an “experience rather than a dogma.”
Wordsworth’s totem animal was the Owl, connected to Bohemian Grove.
In English literature the owl had a sinister reputation probably because it was a bird of darkness and is always associated with death. During the 18th and 19th century, the poets Robert Blair and William Wordsworth used the owl as their favorite “bird of doom”. During that period many people believed that the screech of an owl meant imminent death.
There is a Wordsworth dictionary of the occult.

– Who was at the Rosemary’s Baby premiere? Was Polanski there?
The stars were Mia Farrow, Ruth Gordon and John Cassevetes. The movie is about witchcraft and the birth of the Devil.
From the Church of Satan by Michael Aquino:
The Manson Murders were in 1969, after the Premiere in 1968. Rosemary’s Baby won an Oscar in 1969. Polanski fled to Paris in 1977.
