In CryptoBeast #19 Chip Wood claimed that he created the Grateful Dead in 1963 in Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs, where he was a student with Bob Weir and John Perry Barlow, as a psyop to prevent global thermonuclear war.
In this episode I present some of my own research into the Grateful Dead, the Merry Pranksters, and Stanford’s “Bohemian Quarter”, Perry Lane.
I recorded this before Easter but have experienced computer problems like never before trying to edit it and get it out on YouTube. The best way I could describe the issues would be “jamming”. Large chunks of files would go missing, uploads and render jobs would continually fail 80% of the way through, or Final Cut would just crash. It may be that my aging iMac doesn’t have the juice to render HD files from my new webcam and with my different background.
For some reason today it finally all worked – except for some weird audio and video gremlins. My computer today is just the same as yesterday and a week ago, so what changed? Today New Zealand’s entire military/intelligence apparatus is focused on Prince William’s visit to the two Christchurch mosques. Ding that coincidence meter again.
Please download and share the video just in case They are trying to shut it down.
Here’s the previous episode in which Chalmers Wood, Jr shared his story of the true origins of the Grateful Dead.

John Kerry on the Grateful Dead:
Afterward, Kerry came out and told us, among other, more important things, about how he discovered the Fillmore West and the Dead when he came to SF after Viet Nam, and how the Dead have remained a big part of his life ever since. As soon as he said it, a woman just behind me screamed out, “Yeaaaah!!!!” I turn around expecting a hippy chick who got in, like me, on a miracle ticket. I see a 60 year old, perfectly coiffed woman in a $2,000 gown, looking every inch a CEO, with a huge grin on face, shaking her fists in the air. Every one around me is grinning, too. A couple of high-buck, gray-beard lawyers in front of me start up the chant: “Go Johnny! Be Good!” And you know, I started to believe he will be.
The infamous “Missing Cornell Show”, and Lyndon LaRouche comments on the Grateful Dead: https://archive.org/post/93123/conspiracy-theory
LaROUCHE: He was pro-Nazi.(Carl Jung) He was an occultist, satanic cultism.
I don’t know if he went as far as (Aleister) Crowley did in identifying
Satan, but it was the same structure. Allen Dulles(C.I.A. director) was very
close to this crowd personally. As to what was going on in Allen’s mind at
this time I don’t fully know. But then you get the MK-ULTRA operation.
60 Greatest Conspiracies: The mind control operation?
LaROUCHE: That was an Allen Dulles period operation which was run together with the occult types in British intelligence, such as Aldous Huxley. And also Gregory Bateson who created, for example, the Grateful Dead out of an MK-ULTRA operation at the Palo Alto Veteran’s Hospital where he was supervising. The first United States-grown rock group of that type, the Grateful Dead, was generated as a British intelligence operation by the Occult Bureau of Huxley and bateson out of the Palo Alto Veteran’s Hospital where they were doing LSD and related experiments.
60 Greatest Conspiracies: Why would British intelligence want to put out a rock roup?
LaROUCHE: Well, this is part of the Satanism business. Call it the
counterculture. Call it the Dionysius model of the counterculture. Rock is
essentially a revival of the ancient Dionysic, Bacchic rituals. Lots of
people or long periods of time in that kind of particular rhythmic ritual
which was probably struck upon empirically many thousands of years ago for this type of cult. It does have a relationship to the Alpha rhythms of the brain. It does produce these sorts of states. If combined with a little
alcohol and more, shall we say, mood shaping substances, with youth, with funny sex, this does produce a profound change of a countercultural type.
Another word for it: New Age. the longer term: age of Aquarius. People were experimenting with various utopian models, constructing small groups experimentally which were considered New Age types. How to create experimental types that might survive the aftermath of a general nuclear war.
60 Greatest Conspiracies: Was this whole trend continued after Dulles’
LaROUCHE: He was not the controlling factor. I wouldn’t make him the evil black widow spider. He was part of it. The operation goes way back. But in the United States this particular operation goes to about 1938. The Nazis were operating in the 1930s out of Hollywood and elsewhere with an occult astrology racket kind of intelligence operation.
At that point the Huxley operation out there which is already established,
the marijuana operation and so forth in the 1930s, was already hooked up.
1963 I would say was a watershed year for explosion of this thing, around
the LSD, Beatles proliferation. And then you have another one in recent
years where explicit Satanism has really exploded.
