Leonard Cohen’s Secret Life, MKUltra, & Cultural Engineering


You don’t know me from the wind
you never will, you never did
I’m the little jew
who wrote the Bible

In a recent 4-part, 5-hour podcast conversation with the author Ann Diamond, Diamond talks about the art scene in Montreal in the 1960s and 70s and how closely tied it appears to have been to McGill University, the Allan Memorial Institue, and the MKUltra program which Dr. Ewen Cameron was implementing there, involving possibly tens of thousands of children and adults. Diamond first met Cohen in 1979 and they had an intermittent affair for several years. Her testimony suggests that Leonard Cohen (like Diamond herself) was one of the many MKUltra subjects (though whether voluntary or not is unclear, most weren’t). Others whom Diamond names are filmmaker Allan Moyle (Pump Up the Volume), actor Stephen Lack (Scanners), and Oscar-nominated film artists Arthur Lipsett and Ryan Larkin.… Read the rest

I find the series of Trialogues conducted between Terence McKenna, Rupert Sheldrake, and Ralph Abraham endlessly fascinating. I have listened with inflamed imagination to their discussions ad infinitum, finding them thus far inexhaustibly thought provoking.

For the most complete collection (42+ hours) of their discussions I refer you to The Psychedelic Salon’s Trialogues Archive. (It includes numerous recordings of their private discussions donated by Ralph Abraham.)

Though before I try to sell you on the deep cuts, let’s parade out the hits:



As perhaps one of the world’s biggest fans of this material, I dreamed the dream of getting to actively participate in the discussion, and in my own silly way, via e-mail, got to do just that.
