"No connection can be established between the one and the many, the luminous and the dark, without an intermediary, which in man is the soul." Ibn-al'-Arabi--Metaphysics of Imagination--as translated in The Sufi Path of Knowledge by William C. Chittick
How interwoven are the soul and imagination? How intersected are imagination and the intellect? How conjoined are creativity,(and non-amnesic induced) free thought.

In the vastness of humankind when did civilized evolution end and progressive intelligence become a threat and who is currently being threatened?
MKULTRA, and my being an unwitting subject of this horror, separated me from the knowledge of my birth name, the fact that I was a mother, the fact of what religion I had practiced as well as a host of other personal awareness. I wonder at this time if Einstein had been around when the United States Government decided that they were in need of subjects for a human behavioral modification program how his life and contribution to mankind would have turned out. After all, a genesis like Einstein would have fit the profile the government was looking for in regards to MKULTRA.
For you art lovers what if Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, or Paul Cezanne had met with the altar? For you music lovers what if Mozart, Bach or Tchaikovsky had suffered the sacrifice? What about What about Buddha, Moses, Christ or Mohammad? What about me? What about you?
The devastation, the excruciation and horrifying invasion of the human mind and spirit via MKULTRA deserves its properly recorded place in history.
Lives of great men all remind us, we should make our lives sublime, departing leave behind us our footprints upon the sands of time--an unknown Greek poet.
