Sacramento Trip Updates

14 June 2017

13 June: (I had written this part up earlier, but the draft is on another computer.) I rode Northwest Trailways from Pullman to Seattle. It takes the northern route, through Leavenworth and Stevens Pass. It’s prettier than the Greyhound route, but takes longer. I arrived in the late afternoon and stayed in a place called the Panama Hotel. This place is a lightly-restored hotel built in 1910 for immigrants from Asia. Jan Johnson operates it and she puts a lot of effort into it. It’s different than a “modern” hotel, but was fine for me. She sees it as a kind of museum.

14 June: The Amtrak Coast Starlight pulled out of King Street Station around 9:30 in the morning. That meant we could see the sites all the way to the California border. After an uneventful morning, I stayed in the observation car after lunch, and some interesting people got on somewhere early in our trip through Oregon. One guy had a guitar and sat down and started playing. Later he had an intense political discussion about the absence of wisdom in modern society.

15 June: The train pulled into Sacramento just a little after sunrise. I started walking. I found a breakfast place open early and had some fresh fruit and a muffin. Then I walked east until I got to Sutter’s Fort (1839-1848) and photographed an egret sitting in a pool outside, looking a bit dejected. There are lots of shops in “Midtown” but most don’t open until 10 or so. I slowly made my way back downtown, where I visited my church and made a donation.

Then I went out to the Econolodge and signed in. My 25-day stay broke my debit card, but I called BECU’s 1-800 number and got it fixed. My realtor came by a little later and took me to the one mobile home park that agreed to look at my application. We planned to prepare the paperwork the next morning and then turn it in.

After that I went across the freeway to Fry’s and got the computer I’m typing this on, as my little Linux-based netbook would not connect properly.

16 June: Took all morning to prepare the paperwork, but my realtor was happy with it and the lady at the park liked it, too. After I got back from that, I finally managed to connect to the internet. This motel uses an unsecured Wi-Fi network with a browser “landing page” that prompts you for a password. This is supposed to happen automatically, but with some computers you might have to type in the URL of the landing page.

It has turned VERY hot in Sacramento, so I waited as long as I could to go out to shop at Foodsco. This is one of those BIG grocery stores, in this case run by Kroger. It is one of four stores in the Sacramento area. They don’t always show up when you search for “grocery stores.” Poorer people come to shop there, as the prices are pretty good. The selection, however, is heavy on the processed foods side. I found the produce decent, and located some good yogurt, too.

17 June: We are expecting above 100F during the daytime for at least a week if not longer. I am staying inside mostly, though did go out for lunch and more groceries. I downloaded and watched Courtney Brown’s latest remove viewing project which was on Area 51 (officially, the Groom Lake facility). It was pretty good and confirmed what others have reported about it: MagLev trains, multi-story underground research complexes, ET involvement and genetic experimentation. When one of Courtney’s remote viewers sees something, you have to take it seriously. So a lot of the Area 51 scuttlebutt is the real deal. I suggest David Adair’s stories for more data about what it was like there maybe 30-40 years ago.

18 June: I got up “early” and took the 86 bus downtown. The ride only took about 15 minutes. I stayed on and went back out to Discovery Park by the American River where I walked around for a while. Then I caught the next bus back to Northgate Blvd, and a short walk up to the motel. They are expecting the hottest 18 June on record today – above 105F – so I didn’t want to stay outside too long.

19-20 June: Another visit to my church, another donation. Then today I went to a “coworking” place near downtown to get a more reliable (and secure) internet connection than is available at the motel. Internet cafes are starting to drift out of fashion, what with internet connection via mobile phone becoming so common. So now some are beefing up their infrastructure a bit and offering it to “serious” computer users, usually at a price. I, however, got in on a “free day pass” plus a muffin and two iced herb teas.

Thoughts from yesterday:
Met a woman who owned a house in Reno, was planning to move to Sac, but keep the house in Reno and rent it out. This follows the modern pattern of the financially better-enabled of somehow creating an asset pool, then living off the income from it. The trick is to acquire the asset in the first place. If you get a really good-paying job and save a lot, you can do it. But to me there seems something wrong in it…

Today watched an interview with Niara Isley, an ex-airman who got used as slave labor on the moon. She came out at least 6 years ago, and has been telling the same story the whole time, and also wrote a book. Like Corey Goode, she has turned to the New Age movement for solace and support. This is apparently allowable for people who are trying to blow the whistle on the secret space program.

21-22 June: Have been travelling around a lot on the light rail. Went to both ends of the blue line; still have to do that with the two other lines. I stopped off at some different places, such as the Broadway part of the Oak Park neighborhood. Went out and visited the house where I will be staying when I move here. It is located in a part of the city where they didn’t have to put in sidewalks when they were building the houses there. Very strange.

23-27 June: Church events, a visit to Old Sacramento, and more planning for the move have filled the hours these recent days. I’ll be putting together more articles before too long.

28 June – 2 July: I have completed most of the planning for the move and visited some more Sacramento attractions. The Discover Museum, destined to become the Powerhouse Science Center, was a calm and relaxing visit that included several live animals, along with a body health exhibit and the beginnings of some “hard science” exhibits. This museum is aimed primarily at kids.

3 – 5 July: This was mostly move preparations. However, on July 4th I was more or less stranded because mass transit was on a holiday schedule.

On 3 July I visited Arden Fair, a very nice mall.

Yes, this mall has a merry-go-round.

It’s an all-indoor mall, two stories (similar to the Glendale Galleria but not as big), dominated by clothing stores and cell phone shops. I got a cell phone there, as “tethering” to my PC will be the only way for me to connect to the internet at my new residence. It works rather well, but costs more than just regular phone use.

I got to the mall by walking over the railroad tracks from the Swanston light rail station. There is an old idiom: “wrong side of the tracks.” To quote the internet:

The common explanation is that in the old days of steam locomotives, the wind would tend to blow the soot to one side of the tracks. The sootier side would then become the poorer / industrialized neighborhood.

This phenomenon is in play along these railroad tracks, though it is more common these days for both sides of the tracks to look in bad shape, as commerce gravitated away from trains towards roads and freeways. The light rail (northwest) side of those tracks is run down and industrialized. On the other side there is more of a corporate presence and also some fancy neighborhoods.

Today (5 July) I visited the Natural Foods Co-op and my new neighborhood “across the tracks.” It’s in an unincorporated part of Sacramento called “Del Paso Manor.” There are about twenty or thirty suburban neighborhoods surrounding Sacramento that are still known by the original names given to the subdivisions when they were first developed. Many of these up in the Arcade area don’t have any sidewalks on the streets. Definitely designed for a drive-in / drive-out lifestyle. It will be interesting to ride around these areas on a bicycle.

More photos of the tiny white roadside flowers!
They’re back! They are a crucifer, probably an alyssum that most would consider a weed. I took my camera out to “the vacant lot” on a brisk, sunny Sunday afternoon for these shots.

Remote Viewing News

Speaking of defiant, Courtney Brown, who runs the Farsight Institute single-handed, has released his latest project, after much fanfare in an attempt to get more attention. This project concerns the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza. Yes, ETs and cloned rock miners appear to have been involved. The stones (up to 80 tons in weight) were hovered into place with the manual help of human devotees. The sessions include the data that another ET group came in and introduced monotheism to the area. The “magic” of the pyramids had evidently waned by that time, and the people, finally realizing they were free to leave the area, did in droves.

Courtney is convinced that data gained from Scientific Remote Viewing can change the planet for the better, but he has come to understand the grim realities of the situation: He has only two remote viewers he can rely on; the technology is dying out. You need a group to push a new technology forward, or it will die as an esoteric curiosity. Data of this variety is being pushed into the “alternative media” with the hope that it will never be picked up by the mainstream. The “intelligence” community seems very involved in this activity. They also work hard to discredit and/or ruin anyone who has something truly promising or revealing to offer. The strategy is to make the “alternative realities community” – also known as “New Agers” – look like a bunch of kooks so no one who wants to be known as “serious” or “legitimate” will touch them. Works pretty well most of the time.

One year on the Palouse as of end of January!

Larry Discovers Courtney Brown

It’s Late

2AM. Or is that early? The point is, Mr. Brown seems to think that it’s getting a bit late, too.

So he’s taking his message to the masses via, most recently, Project Camelot. And that is how I ran across him.

Courtney Brown is a math PhD who studies remote viewing through a non-profit institute that he created for this purpose. He has also done some of his studies privately.

“Remote viewing” is one of several forms of semi-causative super-perception techniques. Remote viewing (RV) was originally developed by the military specifically for investigative purposes.

According to Dr. Brown’s theory of remote viewing, the trained viewer will pick the correct target even though he is not given any overt hint of what that target is. This is because of the actual connectedness of existence. In other words, the ability includes the ability to discover the target without being told what it is, as long as someone will eventually decide what it is. If we were totally “connected” we would be able to perceive everything that “is.” Disconnection is an illusion that we have enforced upon ourselves for some purpose, but greater levels of connectedness are always possible, though it is a strain for humans to do this.

In this way, all existence, which is really just a collection of considerations, is ultimately available to be perceived. That includes all perceptions of what has happened (or patterns we have experienced in the past) and all perception of what might happen (patterns we expect to experience in the future). To see any of these non-local experiences is simply a problem of extending perception.

Findings, briefly stated

  • The asteroid belt formed after a planet exploded.
  • Mars is inhabited and has been for a long time.
  • Jesus arranged things so that he was not the person who got crucified, though most observers thought it was.
  • It is likely that a major “disruptive” event will happen on earth this year.
  • Advanced ET civilizations are a reality.

Dr. Brown – rightly, I think – believes that these findings are significant.

They, in fact, add up to a whole new take on how life works.


In Dr. Brown’s video about Jesus, he mentions the Seth material – recommended to him by a friend – as an inspiration for that project. This material was dictated by “Seth” via Jane Roberts, mostly to her husband, from 1963 to 1983.

I have mentioned the “Hubbard material” as an inspiration for my work. The books he wrote were all penned in the 1950s, except for the Way to Happiness, and his fiction, of course.

In the 1960s through 1980s most of his written work was presented as either Bulletins or Policy Letters, and have since been published as books. The Bulletins are contained in 13 volumes comprising, I believe, over 6,500 pages. The Policy Letters are contained in 11 volumes, consisting of roughly 5,500 pages. And if all of his lectures were transcribed (most of them are), this would amount to an additional 100 volumes, approximately.

None of Hubbard’s work was channeled. It is all either research findings, attempts to explain those findings, descriptions of how to do things correctly, or musings that serve – usually – to illustrate his major points.

It is obvious that both of these individuals devoted many years to their work, believed in it, and thought it was important enough to record and publish.

Seth, for all intents and purposes, founded the New Age.

And Hubbard, in addition to founding Dianetics and Scientology, hoped that his work would help usher in a New Civilization.

If there is any time left to heed these teachers, it starts now.

Take your pick, or study both of them.

Here are some parallels between what Brown believes his research is demonstrating and what Hubbard believed his research was demonstrating:


  • Experience in the physical universe is based on a perception of solidity.
  • When we look deeply into matter – or the mind – we find no real solidity there; we only find a perception of it.
  • Our feelings of being trapped or restrained all stem from this perception of solidity; it is, ultimately, a false perception.
  • The discipline of remote viewing (Brown) or auditing (Hubbard) lead to the realization of the above truths. That realization takes time to occur; years.
  • What Hubbard found that Brown has not yet mentioned is the sense of personal freedom and restored ability that following this discipline can provide to a being.
  • In these “new” truths, or realizations, lie the key to a new level of existence that is lighter, but no less challenging, that what we currently experience. It could enable us to end the sense of being in a “downward spiral.”
