I am now investigating the theory that Ludwig Wettgenstein is dictating some of my novels to me, if not all. I believe he found and entered the ZARDOZ ZONE that writers discovered in the sixteenth century. For a month I have trying to read this article on Ludwig, but when I read about his experiences at Guy’s Hospital, I am reading about how Ken Kesey worked at a mental hospital that influenced his Cuckoo’s Nest Pulp Fiction. Yes – that’s what it is! This famous book could have appeared in Stag Magazine in 1959, but for the fact Ken was led to the entrance of the Vortex Maze by The Guild I identify as The Poker Club in my Bond novel ‘The Royal Janitor’. Victoria and Miriam are agents for BAD. On the February 25th. they came in contact with agents of BHS who are extremely lethal, because I finally get it. In the art work above, we are seeing one writer trying to be killed off by a group of writers disguised as fierce savages out for scalps. This is the ongoing Battle of the Scribes, a Holy War between two alleged brothers, Aaron and Moses. But, if you closely you see they have two different religions. God makes two sets of tablets, after the first gets smashed by Aaron, in revenge for Moses melting down his golden calf and making wedding rings to marry the children to the – One God.
I haven’t read Ludwig like normal people do. I use the Krell-Id method that allows me to see what the Monsters of the Id are up to. This is what Ludwig was doing from a place that was made for the Muses that are Time Travelers. They have to be, because they are agents for The Gods, who are immortals. What they work with is The Net of Coincidence discovered by William Anton Wilson. Washington Irving was a Futurian. He was employed by John Astor, who hired Henry Brevoort. Kit Carson was hired by John Fremont and his father-in-law Senator Thomas Hart Benton who was a powerful Freemason. After my posts were not showing on the BHS,, I posted this – as a test! They allowed all my posts – for a little while – because they didn’t know what to do. They knew I had entered their vortex, and was on to them.
Spooky Noodles gave me a huge clue when he said no one in the Bible dies. Now I can say there were two competing groups of Scribes that were trying to get their stuff in God’s Book, and thus, they were killing off each other’s characters, their pieces on the chessboard. When I saw a video about Lawrence, I saw his bookstore filled with famous Beats reading PAPERBACK novels for free. Pulp Paperbacks was a new craze. But, it was the rebirth of the dime novel that made Kit rich. jessie Benton backed Bret Harte and other writers she has at her salon. What they are doing is seeing who is in the vortex and who is out, and how they are progressing the labyrinth. Jessie was a Freemason. The Benton’s are kin to the Bonaparte family. Stay tuned.
This is pure Twilight Zone. I am going to have Chessman be a Futurian who puts himself in San Quinten so he can work on his book that will save Earth. Ludwig would love my book!

The Hypnotic Private Eye
A Movie Idea
A group of Freud’s disciples team up with a group of men’s magazine writers (known as The Lustful Eye), a couple of horror movie makers, the King of the Beatniks (who owns the Hungry 1) and Princess Marie Bonaparte, who claims she is the grandmother of Caryl Chessman. Together they hatch a scheme to alter the conciousness of the world, with the help of the Macumba Love Drug. They want to create a vortex of super creative people in the legendary Shangri-La that Carl’s father, Prince Peter, discovered in his visit to Tibet. This is the scheme that Ken Kesey stumbled upon when he lived in the experimental community on Perry Lane in Menlo Park. There is powerful evidence Ken was put in a hypnotic trance he never got out of. The giant image of Kesey in Springfield holds the key that will unlock your mind! Study that bookcase! Long live the Grateful Dead of Macumba!
The famous detective, William Linhart, is left on the outskirts of this fantastic plot to alter humanity – for the good of all! For now, the right hand must not know what the left hand is doing. Bill was already working for Chessman, he gathering evidence that he is an innocent man. There is a plan to have Caryl be one of the judges of the Beautiful Busty Babes contest being held on Macumba Island. The producers are tying to get permission from the warden to have June Wilkinson come sit next to Caryl on Death Row, and be Judge No.2. It will be the world’s first live-telecast!
Davis was good at describing journeys into waste places: shacks in marshes near warehouses; snowstorms out West, weedy yards in isolated city manufacturing districts. Traveling in these environments usually results in comic physical indignities for his hero. The remote Mexican highlands of The Mouse in the Mountain, are one of the largest scale, and most successful, of such desolate regions in Davis. There is also the flash flood in the Mohave Desert at the finale of Sally’s in the Alley.
Caryl Chessman with Princess Marie Bonaparte (2 July 1882 – 21 September 1962) was a French author and psychoanalyst, closely linked with Sigmund Freud. Her wealth contributed to the popularity of psychoanalysis, and enabled Freud’s escape from Nazi Germany. Marie had two children.
The scene is London; the year, 1941. Ludwig Wittgenstein, likely the greatest philosopher of the twentieth century, has taken a hiatus from his Cambridge professorship to do “war work” in a menial position at Guy’s Hospital. By the time he arrives there, in September, the worst of the Blitz is over, but there’s no way of knowing that—the bombing could begin again any night. Wittgenstein serves as a dispensary porter, meaning he pushes a big cart from ward to ward, delivering medicine to patients. He’s 52 years old, small and thin, not to say frail. He writes in a letter that sometimes after work he can “hardly move.”
To John Ryle, brother of Oxford philosopher Gilbert Ryle, Wittgenstein explains his reason for volunteering in London: “I feel I will die slowly if I stay there [in Cambridge]. I would rather take the chance of dying quickly.”
Wittgenstein’s time at Guy’s Hospital is an especially lonely period in a lonely life. Socially awkward in the extreme, he does not endear himself to his coworkers. Although it soon gets out, he initially hopes to conceal that he’s a professor in regular life, hating the prospect of being treated differently. But he is different. His attempts to hide in plain sight must strike everyone as yet another eccentricity.
Nevertheless, he makes at least one friend at the hospital, a fellow staffer named Roy Fouracre. After some time, Fouracre is permitted to visit Wittgenstein in his room, a rare privilege with the reclusive philosopher. Crossing the threshold into Wittgenstein’s private quarters, Fouracre must expect to find books everywhere, hefty, awe-inspiring tomes by Aristotle and Kant and the like. Nothing of the sort. The only reading material in evidence is “neat piles of detective magazines.”
Those magazines would have been American detective pulps, the kind that chronicled the adventures of Philip Marlowe, Mike Hammer, Sam Spade and other hardboiled heroes. During the last two decades of his life, Wittgenstein read such fiction compulsively. But what drew him to detective stories, and to American hardboiled ones in particular? How did a man engaged in a fundamental reform of philosophy—no less than an overhaul of how we think and talk about the world—develop such a passion for pulps?
Books and dime novels (1847–1859)
Carson’s fame spread throughout the United States with government reports, dime novels, newspaper accounts, and word of mouth. The first accounts of Kit published for popular audiences were extracts from Fremont’s explorations reports as reprinted in period newspapers. Fremont’s journals appeared in the early 1840s, as modified by Jesse Benton Fremont into romantic accounts of the uncharted West. Newspapers throughout the U. S. and England reprinted excerpts about wild tales of buffalo hunts, vast new landscapes, and indigenous peoples. Kit’s heroics enlivened the pages. In June 1847, Jesse Benton Fremont helped Kit prepare a brief autobiography, the first, published as an interview in the Washington, D.C. Union, and reprinted by newspapers across the country.
Charles E. Averill (1830-1852), ‘the youthful novelist,” published a magazine article for Holden’s Dollar Magazine, April 1848, that he expanded into a novel advertised as Kit Carson, the Prince of the Gold Hunters; or the Adventures of the Sacramento; a Tale of the New Eldorado, Founded on Actual Facts, an even more fantastic tale exploiting Kit’s rising fame. It arrived on bookstore shelves by May 1849, in time for the California Gold Rush demand for narratives (fictional or not) on the trail to California. Averill’s pioneers are in awe of Carson: “Kit Carson!…the famous hunter and adventurer of the Great West, the hardy explorer of the trackless wilderness…the prince of backwoodsmen” arrives to guide them. When later asked about the book, Kit Carson said “every statement made [by Averill] is false.”
Similarly, Emerson Bennett (1822-1905), a prolific novelist of sensational romances, wrote an overland trail account where fictional Kit Carson joins a California bound wagon train. Arriving in bookstores in January 1849, his The Prairie Flower, or Adventures in the Far West exploited the Kit myth, and, like Averill, quickly followed with a sequel. In each novel, the Westering immigrants are in awe of the famous Kit Carson. Both novelists sensationalized fictional Kit as “Indian fighter,” with gruesome trashy accounts as “red-skins” “bite the dust” (Averill, Gold Hunter). For example, of one victim, Averill wrote, “blood gushed in a copious stream from his nostrils”; while Bennett wrote “Kit Carson, like an embodied spirit of battle, thundered past me on his powerful charger, and bending forward in his saddle, with a motion quick as lightning itself, seized the scalp lock of my antagonist in one hand, and with the other completely severed his head from his body, which he bore triumphantly away” (Bennett, Prairie Flower, p. 64). The novelists’ gruesome, gory and sensationalized woolly West descriptions would keep readers turning the pages, and buying more bucket-of-blood fictional accounts of Carson, especially during the coming age of dime novels.
Indian captive Mrs. Ann White
Kit Carson’s reaction to his depiction in these first novels is suggested by the account of events around the fate of Mrs. Ann White. In 1849, as he moved to civilian life at Taos and Rayado, Carson was asked to guide soldiers on the trail of Mrs. Ann White, her baby daughter, and “negro servant,” who had been captured by Jicarilla Apaches and Utes. The commanding officer, Captain William Grier of the 1st Cavalry Regiment, ignored Carson’s advice about an immediate rescue attempt after catching the Jicarillas unaware, but after a shot was fired, the order was given to attack, and the Jicarillas had started to flee. As Carson describes it in his autobiography, “In about 200 yards, pursuing the Indians, the body of Mrs. White was found, perfectly warm, had not been killed more than five minutes – shot through the heart by an arrow…. I am certain that if the Indians had been charged immediately on our arrival she would have been saved.” Her child and servant were taken away by the fleeing Jicarillas and killed shortly after the attack, according to a 1850 report by James S. Calhoun, the Superintendent of Indian Affairs in New Mexico.
A soldier in the rescue party wrote: “Mrs. White was a frail, delicate, and very beautiful woman, but having undergone such usage as she suffered nothing but a wreck remained; it was literally covered with blows and scratches. Her countenance even after death indicated a hopeless creature. Over her corpse, we swore vengeance upon her persecutors.”
Carson discovered a fictional book, possibly by Averill, about himself in the Apache camp. He wrote in his Memoirs: “In camp was found a book, the first of the kind I had ever seen, in which I was made a great hero, slaying Indians by the hundreds, and I have often thought that Mrs. White would read the same, and knowing that I lived near, she would pray for my appearance and that she would be saved.” The real Kit Carson met the fictional Kit Carson and is upset at his inability to have saved Mrs. White, has failed to live up to the growing myth. He was sorry for the rest of his life that he had not rescued Mrs. White; the dime-novel Kit would have saved her.
Jessie Benton held a Salon at the Fremont home on Black Point. Hermnan Melville stayed with the Fremonts, and Bret Harte was a frequent guest. Three miles away in Belmont, William Ralston was entertaining Mark Twain in his Salon. You can see Jessie’s features in my niece, Drew Benton. How could the so called “Caretaker” of the Rosamond legacy miss all this important family history?
Jesse Benton Fremont by Susan Saperstein She is thought to be the real author behind the successful writings of John C. Fremont (general, senator, presidential candidate, and the Pathfinder of the West) describing his explorations. Jesse Benton Fremont (1824– 1902), Fremont’s wife, was also the daughter of Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton, a leading advocate of Manifest Destiny, a political movement pushing expansion to the West. And in her event-filled life, some of her happiest times were at her house in San Francisco’s Black Point area, now known as Fort Mason. The Fremonts lived there between 1860 and 1861. The prop- erty included three sides of the point, and Jesse described it “like being on the bow of a ship.” They had a clear view of the Golden Gate, so named by John when he first viewed it in 1846. Alcatraz was so close that Jesse is said to have called the lighthouse on the island her nightlight.
The Spanish called the area Point San Jose and built a battery in 1797. However, cold winds and fog soon made the cannons useless. By the time the Mexicans were ruling in the 1820s, the area was known as Black Point for the dark vegetation on the land.
Their house was one of six on the point. Jesse remodeled the house and added roses, fuchsias, and walkways on the 13 acres. Their home became a salon for San Francisco intellectuals. Thomas Starr King, the newly appointed minister of the Unitarian church, was a fixture for dinner and tea. Young Bret Harte, whose writing Jesse admired, became a Sunday dinner regular, as did photographer Carleton Watkins. She invited literary celebrities when they came to townó including Herman Melville, who was trying to get over the failure of Moby Dick. Conversations in her salon led to early conservation efforts when Jesse and a group including Watkins, Starr King, Fredrick Law Olmsted, and Israel Ward Raymond lobbied Congress and President Lincoln to preserve Yosemite and Mariposa Big Trees. Jesse’s husband, however, often away on business ventures, was not a regular at her gatherings.
Jesse’s education was unusual for a woman of her time. She accompanied her father to the White House when he visited presidents and spent time at the Library of Congress while he was working in the Senate. In her childhood home she heard William Clark tell stories about his travels with Meriwether Lewis.
The sixteen-year-old Jesse met the handsome and dashing Fremont when he worked at the mapping wing of the United States Army, where her father spent time because of his interest in Western expansion. When her parents noticed Jesse’s interest, they forbade her to see Fremont. After the two eloped, her parents stopped speaking to her, but later reconciled. Thomas Hart Benton then pushed funding for Fremont’s 1842 trip to explore the Oregon Trail. On returning from Oregon, John Fremont was required to report his findings to Congress, but suffered writer’s block. As Jesse later recalled, “the horseback life, the sleep in the open air” made him “unfit for the indoor life of writing.” She offered to write as he dictated to her, and the report with its descriptions of the western lands was a success. Succeeding expedition reports made Fremont and his scout Kit Carson famous. People heading west for gold bought copies with their supplies. Historians are mixed on who was the actual writer. One, John W. Caughey, indicated that Fremont was one of those writers who “acquired by marriage a very attractive literary style.” During an 1846 expedition to California, Fremont found himself caught between conflicting orders of feuding Army General Stephen Kearny and Navy Commodore Robert Stockton. He declared himself military governor and was subsequently arrested and court-martialed. In a strange twist of fate, Fremont asked American Consul Thomas Larkin to purchase land in the San Jose area before he left California for his trial. Larkin instead purchased land in Mariposa, where a few years later gold was discovered, making the Fremonts very rich. When Fremont lost his trial, he left the Army and headed west on another expedition. Just as the discovery of gold was announced, Jesse traveled to California to meet him, using the Isthmus of Panama route. This was something very few women did–even fewer with only a six-year-old child, her daughter Lily, as a companion. Fremont tended his business at the mines in Mariposa, and the Fremonts lived in Monterey, Bear Valley, and San Francisco at periods between 1849 and 1861. Fremont bought the house at Black Point in 1860 for $42,000. When civil war seemed likely, the Fremont family returned east for John’s new Army appointment, which lasted only a few months. (He decreed his own emancipation proclamation in Missouri, which angered Lincoln.) He lost control of his mines, and after a number of other job attempts declared bankruptcy in the 1870s. Jesse supported the family with her writing. Fremont died during a trip to New York in 1890, and Jesse died twelve years later while living in Los Angeles. Black Point was taken by the military for defense during the Civil War, and the Fremont home was demolished. One of the original six houses is used today as the Fort Mason Officers Club. Jesse filed lawsuits for compensation for the property, but the government countered that the families living on the point were squatters and produced documentation from President Millard Fillmore reserving it for military use. After Jesse’s death, her daughter continued to file claims, but the family was never reimbursed. Some of the heirs of Black Point families, including the Fremont’s great-grandson, were still pursuing legal action in the 1960s. The area was renamed for Colonel Richard Masonóappointed military governor of California in 1847 when his predecessor, Stephen Kearny, went to Washington to testify against Fremont in his court-martial.

John C. Fremont and His Reports on the Oregon Trail
The states of California, Oregon, Idaho, New Mexico, and Arizona would not be a part of the United States of America without the collaboration of John C. Fremont and Kit Carson. The books and mapping of the West and the creation of the Oregon Trail would not only lead to the American Government be able to understand the western part of the country better but, would give the ability for many people to travel across the country. More people would be able to settle in the West and would lead to a population rise in California and Oregon. Along with the country, neither man would have been able to rise in their popularity in America history without each other. John C. Fremont at most would have been a soldier getting lost in the wilderness and leading a failed expedition. Kit Carson without Fremont would have been an above average trapper in the West with little to no mention in any history book. Since they did meet, some say by fate, they became the most famous men in America before the Civil War.
John C. Fremont was born in 1813 in Georgia and his young childhood was very similar to Carson’s in which his father also died and they both came from humble beginnings. Contrary to Carson, Fremont gained formal education while growing up and eventually became a teacher by the age of twenty in the Navy. After quitting the Navy he became a first-rate topographer for the United States Government. Fremont would go on and explore the West lands and study the paths of other Pathfinders, such as Lewis and Clark, and carry on the pathfinder’s findings in the West.
Kit Carson after over eight years of being out in the West hunting and trapping decided to go back to his hometown in Missouri to visit his parents and any of his friends who were still there. Once he arrived at his old home he soon found his parents dead and his homestead forgotten and in ruins. He left to St. Louis and took a steamboat up the Missouri River. On this steamboat, he would meet John C. Fremont who was about to go on an expedition into the Rocky Mountains. Carson was invited by Fremont to be his guide as Fremont was going to map out the Oregon Trail. Carson was shy and reserved but not awkward, he was a true gentleman, which was completely different from Fremont’s other guide and could have given Fremont reason to grow to like Carson more. The expedition occurred in 1842 and it would be the first of the three for the two men. The South Pass of the Oregon Trail in present-day Wyoming was the main purpose in the first exploration for Fremont. The group mapped out the guidebook, maps, and other information to be printed out for the travelers who would be on the trail. The mission took about five months to complete and Fremont was able to write reports on the trail which spurred more travelers to take the path. His reports also describe Kit Carson and brought the national spotlight on his guide. The information on much Carson knew about the land and how he was a knight-errant type who Fremont describe as one of the finest pictures of a horseman.
Kit Carson would guide Fremont’s second expedition from July 21, 1843, to July 4, 1844. This mission would map out the rest of the Oregon Trail from South Pass, Wyoming to the Columbia River in Oregon. They also took a trip to Salt Lake City, Utah and pushed onto California and the Sierras Nevada Mountains. Once the group had made it to California the group was very low on food and were suffering considerably, Carson went on past the group and found other travelers in the region who were able to help support the supplies for the group. The mountaineering skills of Carson saved the group by his ability to track down supplies for the suffering group, in Fremont’s reports he describes the skills of Carson and how he saved the group with his abilities as a guide. As the group moved from Southern California, Carson was about to become even more famous in America. In the Mojave Desert, they ran into a Mexican man and a young boy who been ambushed by Native Americans who killed many of the men travelers, killed and mutilated. They also had stolen about thirty horses from the group. Carson and his fellow mountain man Alexis Godey decided to track down the Natives who attacked this group. The two men were able to track down the Natives which they killed two of them and scared the rest of the Natives away. They scalped the two they killed as a prize and rescued the horses which were still alive. This attack was an act of heroism by Carson was reported by Fremont and this lead Carson to be at the status of a Western hero among Americans in the 1840s.
The third and final mission for the Fremont and Carson’s group was to make a track from California to Oregon in 1845. There was a political agenda during this expedition in which President Polk was planning on taking California away from Mexico. Their group had about sixty men in it and Fremont started to create patriotism for America in local areas in California. This caused the Mexican Government to come to Fremont and threaten him to leave to Oregon. While the group moved north they began to slaughter Natives and killed over 150 of them in the Sacramento Massacre. Some Natives, days later, attacked the camp and killed three of the men in the group. Fremont wrote on how Carson killed some of the attackers by chopping their faces off to avenge the death of their friends. The group went on to kill over 14 more Natives in the Klamath Lake Massacre to retaliate. The third expedition gave information to the presidency about California so they would be able to gain the land for the country. The expedition also gave more rise in Carson because of the way he fought against the Natives and was shown through Fremont’s reports in the public eye.
