Michael Aquino Dead. Was Leppo His Last Interview?

In August 2019 I shared my review of the Leppo Aquino Psyopfest.

Today I was sent this tweet from a source I trust:

The story seems to check out:

Source: Aquino official web site xeper.org

This is Aquino’s own web site xeper.org. So if this is a LARP, it is the elderly black magician who is LARPing his own death in a fairly unimaginative way.

September 1 means Aquino died 3 weeks after going on Leppo’s show with Thomas Schoenberger, the All Seeing Ewe and Frank Bacon. Was it his last ever interview?

The last Wayback Machine save of Aquino’s web site was May 20, 2020 – this did not say anything about the death, which seems a little suspicious. The current page links to this as “previous version of this page”, the link to Aquino’s Google+ account is no longer active.

https://web.archive.org/web/20200520052428/https://xeper.org/maquino/

It seems remarkable that such a controversial figure could leave this earth with no-one to even notice his passing, barely a ripple sowed through the Twitterverse.

Perhaps we were all distracted by Jeffrey Epstein‘s arrest and sudden death. Epstein was very connected to the world of arms trafficking.

Aquino was linked to the Iran/Contra arms and drugs trafficking scandal by Boystown photographer Rusty Nelson.

His testimony fits Aquino’s cover story civilian role as an investment banker for Morgan Stanley in San Francisco.

The first ever mention of “Burning Man” in print was on the same page as a Cacophony Society event to do with Oliver North and Iran/Contra.

Burning Man started in 1986 next to the Presidio SF, where Aquino and occultist bloviator Esteban Trujillo de Gutierrez were both stationed that year. In 1986 dozens of children reported satanic abuse at the day care center on the base at the Presidio.

I speculated previously on links between arms trafficking, the Church of Satan, Jeffrey Epstein, and Isaac Kappy. This seemed to particularly trigger Esteban.

When shady Internet character Tyroan Simpson aka “Frank Bacon” spoke to Aquino on the Leppo show, Bacon said that he had conducted magickal rituals with the Order of the Golden Dawn in Denver with Boyd Rice, former #2 at the Church of Satan (Aquino’s old role before he started the Temple of Set). Boyd Rice produced an occult magazine with Tracy Twyman, who died suddenly last July.

Anton LaVey was a Zionist gunrunner. His uncle was connected to Bugsy Siegel and the Meyer Lansky mafia syndicate. Ukraine seems to come up an awful lot in the things I write about.

Frank Bacon and Thomas Schoenberger spoke on the phone together several times with Isaac Kappy. Kappy was in touch with Tracy Twyman, and Schoenberger was also in communication with Tracy between the time of Isaac’s death and her death (as was I: see Another #PedoGate Researcher Suddenly Dies: RIP Tracy Twyman).

Kappy, Hagmann, Twyman, Epstein, Aquino. May, June, July, August, September 2019. Why wait until now to announce this death – a year to the day after Doug Hagmann’s son was found dead with foul play suspected? Is today some Satanic high day? Are there high jinks being cast at Bohemian Grove?


Also coming out today, we have a plausible-sounding explanation for what happened to Max Spiers. Many people had associated his death with Aquino:

Tracy Twyman’s obituary was also released many months after her death. There is a fundraiser to purchase a head stone for her grave:

https://au.gofundme.com/f/tracy-twyman-headstone

Interestingly, typing “Tracy Twyman death” into Google brings up a date of July 20, 2019. It was in fact July 10.

Some have speculated that Tracy may have faked her death in order to disappear from the stalkers sending her death threats. We have more evidence to support her death than Michael Aquino’s at this stage, and he was a much more famous person.

Aquino said in 2013 that he has never attended Burning Man, and doesn’t believe in it.

Leppo Aquino PsyopFest – A Review

Michael Aquino, Sammy Davis Jr, Anton Lavey.

I am starting to do more live streams, seeking a more time efficient way to get my research out and share my opinion on current events using a hypertext multimedia format.

Here is my latest video:

I don’t know anyone else who is combining blog posts, powerpoint slides, and video clips in presenting historical research in this format – either in mainstream channels or where I prefer to be, parapolitics.

Please subscribe to my Vimeo channel CryptoBeast for clips that accompany this blog and my YouTube channel SteveOuttrimCryptoBeast for podcast episodes, livestreams, and other information that may have a wider audience. You can also subscribe to my podcast at Apple iTunes podcasts.

Here is the PsyopFest I am referring to:

It’s a great interview, props to Leppo. If you watch the video of it you will notice him psyopping some of his targets like Truth Convoy. The mere mention of Aquino’s name is triggering to some, as I discuss in my own stream.

I am still working out some of the issues in livestreaming so I couldn’t play some clips during the stream. I don’t have time to edit the video so I am just sharing the clips here, as well as links to some of the information I was talking about.

Please watch the clips because I think they really give a lot of perspective and color to what I am talking about.


Proxemic Magic By Dr. Michael A. Aquino
“The conclusion to be drawn from all this is that the “boundary” of each human being does not end with the skin. (Leonardo da Vinci’s Cannon of man) Each individual possesses an unseen “personal field” – or rather
variety of situational fields – which constitutes his or her true “boundary” (Leonardo da Vinci’s Cannon of man). THE MAGICIAN WHO SUCCEEDS IN CONTROLLING OR ALTERING ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL’S “PERSONAL FIELDS” THUS CONTROLS OR ALTERS THAT PERSON JUST AS ASSUREDLY AS THOUGH HE WERE ABLE TO CONTROL HIS CONSCIOUS
PERSONALITY”.

It Started in SF as a Jazz Group and Now it’s a Religion

An epic performance from Sammy Davis, Jr from the 1969 movie Sweet Charity looks very much like a precursor to Burning Man. He is a preacher, singing about his new church which is sweeping the nation. It contains so many elements that make it look familiar to Burners – art cars, furry sleeveless vests, indulgent principles, a satire on Judeo/Christian religion, acid culture, weed, Pied Piper…is that the Merry Prankster’s FURTHR bus lurking in the shadows? Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy!

At the time he made this, Sammy Davis Jr was in his prime. He was a member of the “Rat Pack” with Shirley Maclaine, Marilyn Monroe, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. They were also known as the “Clan” (presumably with a C not a K) or “The Summit”.

In addition, Sammy Davis, Jr just happened to be a celebrity superstar promoter of the Church of Satan – doing for Anton LaVey what Tom Cruise and John Travolta do today for the Church of Scientology. Blonde bombshell actress Jayne Mansfield, the Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian of her day, was another star Satanist.

As we explored in Shadow History Part 3 – Satan’s Birthday Party, there is almost no philosophical separation between scientism, satanism,  and the values of Burning Man. In Part 4 – Occult Rituals of the Cult we show how Burning Man’s own origins are from San Francisco’s occult scene, a nude beach about a block from the Church of Satan HQ, next to the Presidio Psyop Base (Part 2). Right after Burning Man moved to the desert, the Psyop HQ moved down to Moffett Field, home of Google, Yahoo, Lockheed Martin, NASA Ames, the Singularity University, and many other spooky proponents of transhumanism. The World Wide Web then sprang up around it and became the core of Silicon Valley, as we explored in Part 1 – The Shadow History of Silicon Valley.

Larry Harvey called Burning Man “a compelling physical analog for cyberspace”, in a 1997 Macworld “Digital Be-in” talk.

 


Dancing and Metamorphosis

Another video surfaced this week, which I posted on our Facebook Page. Apparently Walt Disney and Salvador Dali teamed up in 1945 to create a trippy surrealist desert adventure called “Destino”, based on a Mexican folk song.

Once again, we see similarities to Burning Man. Desert, mountains in the distance, cracked playa, bicycles, art cars…we have a lot of themes converging here. Humans merging with gods to create hybrid species; dancing through the wheel of time; dancing and metamorphosis, leading to love. It is dripping with occult symbolism, pyramids, all seeing eyes and so on.

Although Disney and Dalí did collaborate, most of this video was created much later. Still, it looks like Disney and Dalí imagined Burning Man in World War 2…yet another link into the vast occult empire which is Disney Corporation.

Once upon a time the Micky Mouse creator, Walt Disney, worked with the world’s most famous surrealist, Salvador Dali.
Dali was approached by Disney himself in 1945 to propose a collaborative film. Entitled “Destino”, the picture would be based upon a Mexican folk song of the same name, with the music played to accompany a sequence of Dali-designed animation. Destino is a fabled romance between Chronos, the personification of time, and a young mortal woman. The scenes blend a series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis
Walt Disney’s Destino was produced by Dali and John Hench (the Disney artist who did the storyboards) for 8 months between 1945 and 1946. Hench was described as a “ghostly figure” who knew better than Dali the secrets of the Disney film. For some time, the project remained a secret. 
But the film was eventually shelved due to WWII-era financial problems at Disney’s company. Dalí described the film as “a magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time” and Disney said it was “a simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”
However, some 54 years later, the development of Fantasia’s long-awaited sequel, Fantasia 2000, inspired Disney’s nephew, Roy, to finally revive the project. A team of French animators were brought on board to produce the six-minute film on the basis of Dali’s notes and storyboards. In 2003, his musical vision was released at long last

World War 2 ended when Germany surrendered in May 1945 and the Japanese surrendered in August 1945. They were making the “notes and storyboards” for 8 months into 1946, which shows that the war had ended before this project even began.

What were the “secrets of the film” which Hench knew, but Dalí didn’t? Surely Dalí was the big name in this collaboration?

The work of painter Salvador Dali was to prepare a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a movie in the same format of “Fantasia.” The characters are fighting against time, the giant sundial that emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the fate of all human novels. Dalí and Hench were creating a new animation technique, the cinematic equivalent of Dali’s “paranoid critique”…inspired by the work of Freud on the subconscious and the inclusion of hidden and double images.
The plot of the film was described by Dalí as “A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.”
Walt Disney said it was “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”

Seems like all the usual stuff, mass media mind control, as above/so below, hidden images, black magick, the subconscious and the soul…

Dalí’s technique is more formally known as the Paranoid Critical Transformation Method, and is one of his biggest claims to fame.

Of all the Surrealists and their achievements, there is one that stands out above all the others. The Paranoiac Critical method was a sensibility, or way of perceiving reality that was developed by Salvador Dalí. It was defined by Dalí himself as “irrational knowledge” based on a “delirium of interpretation”. More simply put, it was a process by which the artist found new and unique ways to view the world around him. It is the ability of the artist or the viewer to perceive multiple images within the same configuration. The concept can be compared to Max Ernst’s frottage or Leonardo da Vinci’s scribbling and drawings. As a matter of fact, all of us have practiced the Paranoid Critical Method when gazing at stucco on a wall, or clouds in the sky, and seeing different shapes and visages therein. Dalí elevated this uniquely human characteristic into his own art form. 

Dalí, though not a true paranoid, was able to simulate a paranoid state, without the use of drugs, and upon his return to ‘normal perspective’ he would paint what he saw and envisioned therein.

Dalí was able to create what he called “hand painted dream photographs” which were physical, painted representations of the hallucinations and images he would see while in his paranoid state. Although he certainly had his own load of mental problems to bear, it can be said that Dalí’s delusions and paranoid hallucinations did not totally dominate his mind, as he was able to convey them to canvas.

Being a painter of miraculous skill, he was capable of reproducing his myriad fantasies and hallucinations as visual illusions on canvas.

 
It is in this context that one of Dalí’s most famous statements takes on a whole new meaning and understanding.
 
“The only difference between myself and a madman, is that I am not mad!”
 
In Dalí’s own words, taken from his Conquest of the Irrational:
 
“My whole ambition in the pictorial domain is to materialize the images of my concrete irrationality with the most imperialist fury of precision…”
 
He then goes on to say:
 
“Paranoiac-critical activity organizes and objectivizes in an exclusivist manner the limitless and unknown possibilities of the systematic association of subjective and objective ‘significance’ in the irrational…”
 
“..it makes the world of delirium pass onto the plane of reality” 
 

.

Dalí was hallucinating, but without drugs. This is certainly possible – the psychiatric justification for the development of LSD and other suggestogens was to “mimic psychosis”. The name “psycheto-mimetics” was discarded as not marketable by Humprhey Osmond and Marshall McLuhan – the Madison Avenue PR guru who also came up with Timothy Leary’s famous “Tune In. Turn On. Drop Out” tagline (though Leary also claimed he came up with it in the shower after meeting McLuhan)

It’s also quite possible that Dalí was tripping on something and just didn’t promote it in media interviews.

Here’s the video set to Pink Floyd’s classic “Time” from Dark Side of the Moon:

 


Transformation and the Projects

The word “Transformation” sure seems to come up a lot in looking at this Presidio/Esalen/Disney/Stanford/Burning Man cluster. This week I discovered that Dr Michael Aquino’s MindWar concept was heavily influenced by Esalen’s Transformation Project think tank.

Burning Man director Chip Conley, whose ambition is to leverage massive amounts of exclusive Burning Man content to make Fest300 the Expedia of festivals, is a trustee of the Esalen Institute. Burning Man holds their corporate retreats there, and it appears to be the model for their Fly Ranch philosophy center plans. Esalen is the occult research base of DARPA. Aquino says they had better stuff than even the CIA or DIA:

Of course, there are other occult pop-culture influences on Burning Man, which we have covered over the years.
