47 L: Oh, I'm just trying to help you guys um get
48 into your brains. I don't know if it's worth it
49 you know. I I had a guru for a long time who
50 there isn't any sense in it. What you gotta do
ta ta be
51 able to perceive reality is attain a level
52 consciousness which he offered which I never
53 which is he said, beyond (.) the mind. It is
54 above the mind.
55 T: What sort of guru is this character?
56 L: This is guru Mahandi.
57 T: Ah, well, what d'you take'm to mean by that,
58 the mind, or above the mind?
59 L: Well, whatever it is I couldn't imagine with
60 cause it's beyond the mind. Or I suppose, it's
61 of, I suppose, it involves a universal, being
62 of the universal consciousness. You know
63 subconsciously aware of um everybody else's
64 Well, you know that. I've seen that. I've seen
65 my mind.
66 T: I don't see how you can be conscious of the
67 mind, the universal mind's conscious of you but
68 not conscious of it.
69 L: How's that?
70 T: (Here we go!) [chuckles]
71 L: Well, maybe so maybe so, I mean yeah maybe
72 my bitterness I just say, well, the universal
73 know don't know anything, heh (.) I maybe, I say
74 because because um I look around and I don't see
75 don't see any superior intelligence taking care
T: (5) How would ya er, expect to see a- you you
78 the pain and suffering and stupidity and
79 the world how can there by a universal mind if
80 universal mind allows that sorta stuff to go
81 L: Yeah, especially stupidity.
82 T: Uh. So either the the maybe the either the
83 mind is eh stupid itself or it's mad itself or
85 L: Oh, it exists. It might be the sum total of
86 minds; but it it exists.
87 T: Well are you trying to, well, I mean, I've
spent a lot of
88 time trying to work out eh, how that can, ah, be
89 case, if it is the case. But, I haven't found
any answer to
90 that (.) myself. But, eh I I still put a collar
and tie on
91 under the circumstances. (.) Why not? Heh,
92 L: Yeah. I asked him why he didn't kill himself
93 says he not ready yet.
94 T: Uh huh.
95 L: Well, I guess if you're dead, you blow any
96 make, of doing anything good, huh
97 T: This time round.
98 L: Huh?
99 T: This time round anyway. (5) If we were just
100 here without these uh, uh cameras on us and
101 microphones, I wouldn't say anything just now.
102 I feel impelled to eh eh make an effort to keep
103 for the sake of eh people who are listening to
104 shouldn't bother.
105 L: Are people listening to this?
106 T: Yeah! A whole lot of people are listening
that's part ah=
107 L: Huh?
108 T: eh
109 L: Wait, nobody told me tha tha tha the camers
110 T: The cameras (.) er, that guy's got, er as
far as I know,
111 he's got the camera eh on just now and there
112 whole lot of people listening too.
113 L: Geeze, I wouldn't have talked about that
stuff, if I had
114 known the camera's on.
115 T: It doesn't matter, it does ma um
[laughs] (2) How long
116 you been in Phoenix, then?
117 L: A year and a half.
118 T: And what brought you to Phoenix?
119 L: I was trying to escape the conspiracy and it
120 T: And what conspiracy?
121 L: Well, if there is one I suppose you're a
122 so you know already. If there isn't, I guess I
123 imagined it.
124 T: Well, ah whether or not I'm a conspirator
125 or not you are imagining it, are you prepared
to er eh
126 ah ah give me your account of what that conspiracy is?
127 L: As much as I can figure out, yeah.
128 T: Well, go ahead.
129 L: Ea, well, I think a conspiracy (.) doesn't
exist so I just
130 don't think about it. If I don't think about
it, it is not
131 there too much. But, then, people like Peter,
132 Dr. Stumpf, ea you know, they tend ta make me
133 in it again, so [sigh] so I try to
avoid those people. I'm
134 not going to talk to you any more. [to
135 screen] No he's alright=
136 T: [laughs]
137 L: =(When he talks about) his job.
138 T: Is it a benign conspiracy or a malign
conspiracy is it?
139 L: Huh, wha, well
140 T: Is it a conspiracy for good or for evil?
141 L: How the heck if I know but if anybody messes
142 like that I don't care. But you what I figure,
is , you
143 see the mind creates a whole lot of
things. You know, I
144 mean, I see mind as really powerful, and and
145 subconsciously their minds always interact.
146 I've seen that=
147 T: Yeah
148 L: =You know (3) and um, people see what they expect to
150 T: wa
