I met Frank Barron with Tim Leary and I think Saul-Paul Sirag at UCSC

in ~ 1976. Frank was a major player in CIA MK Ultra. Tim and he openly

talked about it as I recall. Certainly Tim told me for sure. I also met

Robin Williams with Tim back in the 1980s. BTW the late George Koopman

(DIA Spook) was with John Belushi night he OD'd. George told me. He may

have also told Saul-Paul? Koopman funded my PCRG and was Tim Leary's

control when he was let out of prison and came directly to our PCRG

Esalen in Big Sur from which Gary Zukav, my North Beach room-mate,

wrote "The Dancing Wu Li Masters" that sold millions of copies. I wrote

all the technical stuff for Gary.

I know Carlos Bea. I met a top Iran-Contra at his Bolinas house with

Stephen Schwartz and Kim Burrafato in the mid-80's. Carlos was not

there. Steve had access to his house. He always liked me and I never

saw any anti-Semetism from him. He is still friendly in the Hood. I was

with Lawry Chickering in Trieste 2 days ago. I did not realize that Don

Rumsfeld ran ICS for as long as 3-4 years. So Steven did get to know

him pretty well. Carlos Bea is Cuban and won a lawsuit against Castro.

He is now a San Francisco Superior Court Judge. So, again, all I can

say is that I never detected a tinge of any anti-Jewish attitude in

Carlos. He certainly knew that Stephen was half-Jewish. I am still on

friendly terms with him and his wife. I was even invited to their

Pacific Heights Mansion at a party back then when I was loosely

associated with ICS. Carlos was member of Pumpkin Papers with Richard

Nixon and he has Intel connections for sure. I think he knew the late

Harold Chipman when he was in CIA? Chip was part of MKUltra - he told

details to me and Kim and I think Bobby Jones.

Yes, so you and I about same age now were part of same project no

This is probably the Fastwalker PDF referred to at the top.

The Walter Breen described as working on the gifted child project on the first page of the Safatti/Valle PDF I linked above appears to be Walter H. Breen.

Breen was married for many years to Marion Zimmer Bradley. He was known for his brilliance, his numismatic interests, and his predilection for pederasty, eventually dying in prison after being convicted of felony child molestation.

Stir some PKD into the mix

And some DMT, via Phillip Coppens and that very interesting fellow Jeremy Narby

Did Robert Heinlein take the Breen name for his short story character, statistician Potiphar Breen, from this Breen?
