Update 13 March, 2020: David Berkowitz was framed. Put that in your pipe and smoke it big boy of the medical establishment that thought the testimony of the woman that spends loads more time corresponding with the living than the dead meaning the very existence of the meme that you regarded her life long work the reason that you were willing to sacrifice your career to not only rape her but to be the man that wanted to up the ante to murder too in order to inject into her body the very cum soaked tumor that your overcarsh removed to the point the Dr. Patricia Overcarsh too was willing to allow the boy toy of her big boy Dr. Bill Gist to use the woman that was identified by the lying couple that she until the WE informed her they also took her cats from her to be the only beings on the planet she had to reach out to told you that you have to be given the right to remain permanently silent if you think the man called the Son of Sam was not the serial killer I'd never even heard of since the summer the hottest movie of all was on the film circuit I was still watching the Disney flicks that my daddy gave me to watch as I was only the 6 year old.

Disney is the other thing that needs to be talked about Kelvin Cruickshank I am too much of the coward to work with the women of the other side that want the right to be told that giving Kelvin the green light means that he is the man that will finally regard the "death threats" meme to be the real deal instead of the crying hysterical woman's plea to be cared for completely when the truth is the woman has been caring for herself nearly completely since her mother told her I'm too busy to be asked to perform the duties of the mother that rarely is portrayed by the western world as the important role now that the women have to raise the men to the grave as if they are the big boys to get the right to work at all to the point the very mention that Katherine Brannen identified by the spirit talkin' sellers as the more than willing participant in the meme that getting the men off the street that accuse the innocent of the crimes the police themselves commit means giving the New Zealand and Australian police departments the right to be regarded as the lowest form of police, lower even than the LAPD telling you that not the work that you wanted with the law enforcement agents that would hit you in the middle of the eyes too Katherine with the right to remain silent telling you had you actually returned to the Sensing Murder page that you will be revisiting to give the right to remain silent no longer the very children that have to go to the slaughter on the regular basis in order to appease the children's parents that want not to have the responsibility to the point the very mention that telling you that giving the children the right to disappear to the point the children spend the rest of their lives wondering why their biological maybe offspring went missing permanently offering not the first idea that resolution is not resolution of the hell when the person that takes the children is the other parent to the point the very mention of the child missing from the Black Mountain area was in fact stolen by the other parent and deposited outside of the range of the other side's right to tell you the very mention that 6 of your cats have gone missing when the man called the one that was permitted to walk the walk of the man that was getting his comeuppance by being given the procrastination destination in the hills of the other side's view that giving yourself the right to remove the need to stay alive from the meme is the real killing of the messenger because the very need to feel the love making that would never be permitted to occur tells you why that man is not permitted to touch the kitty this lifetime but the truth is the touch is less important than the right to be told you have the paying work that means the Cruickeds that think trashing the woman before the reputation was permitted to be earned by her own effort tells them they have shown their true colors to a world that you guessed it they think you are not important enough to consider yourself a part of "I was on the telly I matter" to the point the very mention that being famous means the gentry of the entire new meme is that being famous means allowing the famous to consider themselves the more important humans as if they are no different than the European bourgeoisie pretending to be the aristocracy meaning the verdict is finally in give-it-away-boy. The answer is kingpin of the wittle girls club that uses your good graces and need to be the young man still in your imagination to be the grandpa always carrying the cocaine and possessing the meme I got with that old man he he he to be the primary focus of the little girls that look good to you but think you are older than their parents so grand dad fits nicely golden ticket holder to the point the famous meme tells you that going to the toilet looks better from the bottom end.

WE want you to listen hard.

WE want you to understand the man the press called Son of Sam is the very man that is telling you the truth.

WE want you to want the WE to tell you the truth.

WE want you to understand the man that was sent to the slaughter for the murders that were pinned on him is not the man that did the murders.

WE want you to understand the law enforcement officers that arrested the man that was given the knife are the very ones that killed the people that were labeled the victims of the serial killer.

When the officers that arrested him gave him the ultimatum to be the killer or to be given the knife right then, he gave them the option of taking him to court.

WE want you to realize the person typing is unfamiliar with this case other than the movie made by Spike Lee that sells the public the bullshit story that was given to the public.

On the morning of the murders that were pinned on the man called Son of Sam the cops decided they needed to pin the murders on somebody so they decided to catch someone that afternoon.

When the man that was arrested was given the ultimatum of being the Son of Sam or going to the shower where he would be raped by the same cops that actually did the killings, he chose the courts.

WE want you to realize the Spike Lee movie was the very reason the woman that is typing did not want to hear from the man that was sent down for the crimes because when the movie came out the movie was the hottest thing around.

When the movie was released, the movie that was given the attention that the press sought, the movie was what everyone wanted to see.

When the Kitty saw the film she was so creeped out that she did not want to listen to the story of the man put down.

WE want Spike Lee to realize that he was used by the very men that made him a household name.

WE want you to realize Spike Lee that you are the finest filmmaker of this generation.

WE want you to be with the WE on this one Spike Lee.

WE want Spike Lee to realize the Kitty that is typing is in fact his 5th cousin through the Lee line.

WE want Spike Lee to remember the Kitty that is typing is the psychic genealogist that tells you that your ancestry and hers overlap 5 generations back in the Lee family line.

WE want you to realize the man called William Lee that was born in Milton, West Virginia and was a member of the Cherokee nation is the same grandfather that you share with Katherine.

WE want Spike Lee to learn about the Tuscarora escape from the Outer Banks and coastal regions of North Carolina and the South Carolina areas now designated the future home of the Cherokee Nation taking the action to recognize the coastal waters considered the Edisto Sound have become the habitat of the turtle you know damn well is the wellspring of desire to the man called WE's wittle woman in training the man called Anthony Kiedis I want St. Simons Island to be my home too David Mann knows Bill Edwards from the island.

The Tuscarora are the ancestors that went to many different locals in order to preserve their right to live at all because you guessed it the British that have identified the woman typing as the enemy of the state told them they had to leave or become corpses.

WE want you to realize the man called Spike Lee is also the descendent of the people that were forced to leave the Long Island coast by the invaders in the middle of the night in the middle of the winter of 1678 to ensure the many of them were killed.

WE want you to understand the Montauk people that lived in Long Island are the very people that want their grandson Spike Lee to be the one that tells the world the story that only he can tell with the passion it needs to be told.

Kitty Licks' Review of Harold Bloom's The American Religion

By Kitty Licks

In his analysis The American Religion Harold Bloom describes the American religion as being gnostic in nature which Bloom understands as "experiencing a total inward solitude".

Bloom explains:

The American finds God in herself or himself, but only after finding the freedom to know God by experiencing a total inward solitude. Freedom, in a very special sense, is the preparation without which God will not allow himself to be revealed to the self. And this freedom is in itself double; the spark or spirit must know itself to be free both of other selves and of the created world. In perfect solitude, the American spirit learns again its absolute isolation as a spark of God floating in a sea of space. What is round it has been created by God, but the spirit is as old as God is, and so is no part of God’s creation. God or Jesus will find the spirit, because there is something in the spirit that already is God or Jesus, but the divine shall seek out each spirit only in total isolation. 1

Bloom explains that concepts like “cosmic consciousness” are part of the “New Age” religion, gnostic and uniquely American in its conception. Though this “New Age” religion's origins are blurry, Bloom explains:

Somewhere in the background of the New Age is the lucid and beautiful anthology edited by Aldous Huxley, The Perennial Philosophy. Huxley’s spiritual authorities were the great seers and mystics of the ages, William Law, Thomas Traherne, the Bhagavad Gita, Meister Eckhart, and Saint Augustine. In the contemplative brilliance of Huxley’s own prose as frame, the profundities of Law and Eckhart acquired fresh reverberation. By recourse you can sometimes construe a New Age passage and hazard some guess as to more or less what some California sage hoped she or he might mean. Otherwise, the student of the New Age must be resigned to that proverbial picnic, to which the authors bring the words (or some of them, anyway) and the readers bring the meanings. 2

Bloom continues:

Elevated consciousness would appear to be the common goal of all New Age Enthusiasts... A God immanent both in outward nature and in consciousness evades the intervening space of incarnation. Christianity therefore is mostly irrelevant to the New Age, except insofar as Christianity already has been modified into the American Religion, of which the New Age is sometimes a charming parody. One might say that the New Age is to the American Religion what Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest is to Shakespearean drama: a great shadow’s last embellishment. The Mormon aspiration of mountain to godhead, or the Southern Baptist experience of an uncreated self within one, is replaced by the entertainment of the notion that one’s own consciousness is God (emphasis Kitty Licks'). And the Mormon ambition of populating a planet only with one’s own family, or the Southern Baptist passion for being alone with Jesus, is taken to the lunatic apotheosis that one’s very own spirit guide is built into the ecology of one’s own mind (emphasis Kitty Licks'). American Gnosticism and American Enthusiasm are splendidly parodied by California Orphism, by a metamorphic glamour that dissolves the last empiric constraints which the universe of death exercises against our drive for spirituality.” 3

Perhaps Bloom was unaware the international headquarters of Paramahansa Yogananda’s Self Realization Fellowship (SRF) has been in Los Angeles since 1920. Among the foundation’s goals:

To disseminate among the nations a knowledge of definite scientific techniques for attaining direct personal experience of God;

To teach that the purpose of life is the evolution, through self-effort, of man’s limited mortal consciousness into God Consciousness

To reveal the complete harmony and basic oneness of original Christianity as taught by Jesus Christ and original Yoga as taught by Bhagavan Krishna; and to show that these principles of truth are the common scientific foundation of all true religions.” 4

Bloom traces the Gnostic American religion’s origin to a revival meeting held by Presbyterian minister Barton Stone in Cane Ridge, KY in 1801. As many as 25,000 people, including ministers from other denominations, attended the revival that week, camping, “experiencing the ecstasies of Cane Ridge.” 6

Bloom quotes historian of American religious history Sydney Ahlstrom, “that these were rough people, profane, heavy drinkers, violent, and they had never attended night meetings before. Conversions and lovemaking intermingled.” 7

Bloom cites Stone’s description of the meeting:

There, on the edge of a prairie in Logan county, Kentucky, the multitudes came together, and continued a number of days and nights encamped on the ground; during which time worship was carried on in some part of the encampment. The scene to me was new and passing strange. It baffled description. Many, very many fell down, as men slain in battle, and continued for hours together in an apparently breathless and motionless state—sometimes for a few moments reviving, and exhibiting symptoms of life by a deep groan, or piercing shriek, or by a prayer for mercy most fervently uttered. After lying thus for hours, they obtained deliverance. The gloomy cloud, which had covered their faces, seemed gradually and visibly to disappear, and hope in smiles brightened into joy—they would rise shouting deliverance. (pp. 64-64) 8

The bodily agitations or exercises, attending the excitement in the beginning of this century, were various, and called by various names;— as the falling exercise—the jerks—the dancing exercise…The falling exercise was very common among all classes, the saints and sinners of every age and of every grade, from the philosopher to the clown. The subject of this exercise would, generally, with a piercing scream, fall like a log on the floor, earth, or mud, and appear as dead…

The jerks cannot be so easily described. Sometimes the subject of the jerks would be affected in some one member of the body, and sometimes in the whole system….When the whole system was affected, I have seen the person stand in one place, and jerk backward and forward in quick succession, their head nearly touching the floor behind and before…I have inquired of those thus affected. They could not account for it; but some have told me that those were among the happiest seasons of their lives.

The dancing exercise…The subject, after jerking awhile, began to dance, and then the jerks would cease. Such dancing was indeed heavenly to the spectators;…Sometimes the motion was quick and sometimes slow. Thus they continued to move forward and backward in the same track or alley till nature seemed exhausted, and they would fall prostrate on the floor or earth, unless caught by those standing by….

The laughing exercise was frequent, confined solely with the religious. It was a loud, hearty laughter, but one sui generis; it excited laughter in none else. The subject appeared rapturously solemn, and his laughter excited solemnity in saints and sinners. It is truly indescribable.

The running exercise was nothing more than, that persons feeling something of these bodily agitations, through fear, attempted to run away, and thus escape from them; but it commonly happened that they ran not far, before they fell, or became so greatly agitated that they could proceed no farther…

I shall close this chapter with the singing exercise. This is more unaccountable than any thing else I ever saw. The subject in a very happy state of mind would sing most melodiously, not from the mouth or nose, but entirely in the breast, the sounds issuing thence. Such a music silenced every thing, and attracted the attention of all. 9

Bloom says that he sites Stone’s account “only partly for the fun of it. Barton Stone clearly was persuaded of the sincerity and authenticity of these seizures, and they retain a grotesque power.” 10 Bloom identifies “sadomasochistic sexuality strongly present in these phenomena.” 11 Bloom suggests what was born at Cane Ridge was creedlessness, the doctrine of experience, “as oxymoronic a phrase as I can imagine.” 12


The drunk sexually aroused communicants at Cane Ridge, like their drugged and aroused Woodstockian descendants a century and a half later, participated in a kind of orgiastic individualism, in which all the holy rolling was the outward mark of an inward grace that traumatically put away frontier loneliness and instead put on the doctrine of experience that exalted such loneliness into a being-alone-with-Jesus. 13 He cannot be known in or through a church, but only one on one, and then indeed he is known, with far more immediacy evidently than even heightened sexual experience can provide, more even than frontier violence can provide. American revivalism, with its endless Great Awakenings, is as recurrent a phenomenon as American violence. We don’t have crime waves any more than we have Great Awakenings; violent crime and religious revivalism are constant throughout our history. Crime waves are journalistic fictions, Great Awakenings are scholarly fictions, and both conceal the troubling near identity between the religion of violence and the violence of religion. Cane Ridge set the pattern of addiction in which Americans bear away the Kingdom of Heaven by violence. 14

Bloom spells it out for us: feeling the currents of life pulsing through one’s body as the participants ecstatically did at the Cane Creek revival can only be the expression of a seething sadomasochistic underbelly, an insidious impulse to up the ante of experience beyond the normal combination of sexual gratification and drunken frontier violence characteristic of those rough profane people. But this “doctrine of experience” is something more, something vile and dangerous. Combined with religious zeal this impulse emerges in the collective as a great violent thrust to impregnate the world finally with the seeds of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Harold Bloom tells us the search for elevated experiences of consciousness is the quest of the alienated individual; an attempt to escape the reality of existential emptiness by the narcissistic notion of making oneself God, separate from the rest of creation, disconnected from others. It is a long running gnostic heresy and leads to unintended acts of violence.

Interestingly in the East the search for elevated experience of consciousness is a normal part of everyday spirituality. Holy people living in God consciousness are numerous and revered. In elevated experiences of consciousness one knows himself to be like everyone else: an expression of God, part of all creation. It is a gnostic understanding that leads to practice of ahimsa: non-violence.

Could Harold Bloom's conflation of free-spirited sexuality and sadomasochism be an expression of his own character structure?

From Wilhelm Reich's The Mass Psychology of Fascism:

    In the case of orgastic impotence, only the psychic forces of defense can come into play, nausea and disgust at genital sensuality. Those defense forces draw their energy from several sources. To begin with, the defensive force is at least as strong as the genital yearning that is being resisted. And the fact that it has not been satisfied has only intensified it, nor does it make the least difference that it is unconscious. In addition the actual brutalization of sexuality in modern man offers some justification for the disgust at sexual intercourse. This brutalized sexuality becomes the prototype of sexuality in general. Thus, compulsive morality produces precisely that to which it later appeals to justify its existence ("sexuality is asocial"). A third emotional source of the defence forces is the sadistic conception of sexuality that the children of all patriarchal cultural circles acquire in early childhood. Since every inhibition of genital gratification intensifies the sadistic impulse, the entire sexual structure becomes sadistic. Since, moreover, genital claims are repaced by anal claims, the reactionary sexual slogan that a woman is degraded by sexual intercourse strikes a chord in the adolescent structure. In short, it is owing to the already existing perversity in the adolescent structure that the slogan can be effective. It is from his own personal experience that the adolescent has developed a sadistic conception of sexual intercourse. Thus, here too we find a confirmation of the fact that man's compulsive moralistic defense forces constitute the basis of political reaction's power. Ever more sharply, the relation between mystical sentiments and sexual "morality" is brought into focus. Regardless of the content of the mystical experience, it is essentially the negation of genital strivings. It is essentially sexual defense, and it takes place with the help of nongenital sexual excitations. The difference between the sexual response and the mystical response is that the latter does not allow the perception of sexual excitation and precludes orgastic release even in cases of so-called religious ecstasy.

    Perception of sexual desire excluded and orgasm precluded, mystical excitation is forced to effect a permanent change in the biopsychic apparatus. The sexual act itself is experienced as something degrading. There is never a complete natural experience. The warding off of orgastic desire forces the ego to form compulsive conceptions of "purity" and "perfection." Healthy sensuousness and the ability to gratity one's desires produces natural self-confidence. The defensive formations in the mystical man result in a pathological self-confidence that is rotten at the core. Just as the self-confidence of the nationalist, the self-confidence of the mystical man is drawn from the defensive attitudes. Even on the surface, however, the self-confidence of the mystical man differs from the self-confidence that derives from natural genital gratification. The former is exaggerated, lacks naturalness in behaviour, and is characterized by feelings of sexual inferiority. This explains why the man who has been inculcated with mystical or nationalistic "ethics" is so accessible to political reactionary catchwords, such as honor, purity, etc. He is continually forced to remind himself to be honorable and pure. The genital character is spontaneously pure and honorable-he does not have to be constantly reminded. 15

Dr. Alexander Lowen was a student of Reich. He could haved helped Bloom. Good thing Dr. Lowen's work continues.

Now I'm gonna enjoy this un-fucking-believable performance.

Whadaya think?

Are the members of Santana drugged? Potentially.

Aroused? Hell yeah.

Demonstrating an alienated disconnect from each other? Hum.

Update 28 June, 2020: The son of the employee of the woman entitled the yogini that buttfucks the others after hours in the basement took his own life. That is the word from the man himself that wants his mother Sheri Kay to take to the bank the need to become the more compassionate the moment the woman told her that the words "Are you suicidal?" turned to the being the never going to tell the Sheri Kay the answer to the max is NO but the child that you raised to begin the thought the man was the never able to please the mother nor the father nor the greater family that loves too much the accolades of the being the more important humans means the woman too knows the woman typing not the Jewish woman suspected but the Cherokee woman that knows damn well the being the suicidal to the max the not the shunning material especially to the employed so called invented by the Martia yoga therapist. Eat the truth Sheri: Your own son committed suicide and that is the message he wishes you to take to the bank building each time you decide to condemn the woman that was the impressionable not young tyke but the woman sent to the Black Mountain Yoga Center to rid the world too of the scum that tells the world he has the goods to be the veterinarian without the proper credentials too. The cats are the reason the woman knows the woman typing is the truth teller so take the medicine Sheri Kay the being too smart to eradicate too the fluoride in the water being the potential to calcify the pineal and the reason the many kids develop both adrenal fatigue, thyroid deficiency and the dreaded to the max type 1 diabetes. Cheers Mom!

WE want the world to comprehend the Rachmans of the Black Mountain Yoga Center to be confiscated during the COVID-19 cover up of the systemic economic collapse have the nerve to regurgitate the rarely not repeated bullshit the ex-husband known now as the drummer from hell to the friends out in the Western Hemisphere meaning the very thought the man not only followed the woman through the grief too her friend Erica Wyse Watkins of the "ugliest person I know" designation told herself not my issue is the feeling that not the first human under the designation "this generation" has the balls nor the heart to accept the human that worked to the max during the 1990s to become the internet artist today that her abilities arrest to her the story that her mother too has not corrected to the point the very thought the Martia "knows for the fact the woman typing gave children to the state of Georgia for the being the child molester" to the point the father of her children the Richard Foulk, Jr. then legally wed to the woman typing is the real child molester to the point the record expunged from the Mitchell County North Carolina Courts was the action of his worthless family trying to save their God awful name from the mud to the point the very thought the woman too took the cats that now have to suffer constantly away from the woman typing tells her the Rachmans too are the lowest form of humanity too since they too told the Jimmy on the River the bullshit to the point he told himself the right thing is to take the Miriam Allen to the backroom, fuck her up the asshole and then give the jism to the slice and the salad to never see that patron again but still had the audacity to tell her hello from across the other bar that now remains the defunct entity telling the bullshit purveyors that you too have the karma that pays.

The Marci Rothschild Robbins of the Cocaine Kingpin's wife designation too has the audacity to tell herself the continuing the giving to the others the bullshit the woman actually is not the purveyor of tells her to stop the talking out loud lest the WE take her to the cleaners meaning the very idea the Rachmans think they are the therapists too is the laughable thing.

The husband that gave to his wife instead of the child the tumor that gave to her the 7 years of the cleansing that felt the hell every day of her life to the point the man then accused her of infecting him to the max with the HIV that today he too infects the many unsuspecting women too that get the dirty pregnancies being the meat eaters instead of the now residual free woman typing meaning the Rachmans too preach the diet that includes the flesh tells the woman entitled "The Town Pump Pumper" to the point the thought too the Jimmy on the River folks too considered the woman thinking them the new friends the woman too that goes to the cops to the point the drugs moving through the Jimmy's on the River on the Highway 70 during the Swannanoa River times that means the thing that matters to the woman typing is the man too beget the headache that regrettably turned her stomach thinking especially about the cum of the two boys then employed by the Jimmy to make the pizzas with the drugs that if the woman had not regurgitated would have been the fatal dose tells the OFFICER COOMER OF THE BUNCOMBE COUNTY COURT'S BUTTHOLE FUCKING SUCK OFFS CALLED THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT the manner to serve and protect is to protect the customers of the restaurant never once cited for the violation instead of the infecting too himself with the goo of the Jimmy meaning the very thought the Jimmy too has the HIV...

Katherine Brannen never once engaged in the act of the social distancing to the point the very thought that her choice is to be locked away to the point the man took the car too registered in the name not his to be his to the point the very thought the Rachman known to the daytime people the yoga therapist but to the late nighters the big butted butthole that fucks after the hours for the fun of the showing off her many movements tells her the very thought that her goal to the max was to ruin the woman that is the therapist that has the clients too tells the Rachmans to beget the insurance too to the point the thought the social distancing to the max tells them the center goes to the grave instead of the "suicidal" google bad reviewer tells them to stop the charade and be the assholes they are that never again repeats the bullshit that they too know is that being the children that must be the raging assholes the moment the world begins to make the sense to the others too that give to the White Buffalo Woman in action the wrong designation to become the ego maniacs that lose the game plan to begin the next thing in the Soulfood Show arena being the Last of the Mohicans this time as the tykes of the other side of the coin realize the thing that makes them the foulest of the lot is that Richard Foulk, Jr. told them too to ignore the fact the Coco has the other woman too to take care of her until the Withers too told themselves the right thing is to run the woman that "is the child molester in the hiding" out of the neighborhood. So see ya Withers. The grass will be cut but then again the thing that made you the "big land lord" was the hiding too the regurgitation the car too has the years but the amending the story to tell you the going to the Richard instead of the woman to the point the man that was never the real husband seeing as he was already wedded to the Miriam Allen to the point the Jimmy on the River that took the word of the "other woman" scorned over the word of the woman that gave to him the respect tells her that he too is the scum with the potential to reform but that means being the big boy not the big man that cums to the butthole designation the thing that makes the woman the released is the releasing the feeling the freedom is the needing to beget the right feeling that I too have the right to exist even if the "stolen lands" tell her the "white" fuckwads win the show.

Attention All Musicians Looking For A Drummer: The man took the grief of the woman typing and turned her instead into the child molester to tarnish his reputation seeing as the woman not once took the child to the bedroom unlike the Jimmy on the River too who fingers his daughter to this day to the point the very thought that the woman typing too was the working 7 days a week first call neighborhood babysitter before embarking on the career experience detailed below to teach the Rachmans the 7th grade science they call themselves the "experts" too of the Ayurvedic field to expect the others.
