“Cogitate” Tape Loop

By Atom Bergstrom

Atom’s Blog

When John Lilly played his “COGITATE” cassette tape loop for us in a Houston auditorium, he said people had already heard well over 2,000 words.

He played it before telling us that.

The audience listened, and John Lilly asked, “How many people heard only one word?”

Two people hesitantly raised their hands.

“Well,” said Dr. Lilly. “You’re the only two sane people in the building … but you have no imagination.”


Most people start off by hearing “cogitate,” a word concocted in their own minds.

Almost no one hears the actual word (actually not a word at all).


Depressed people often hear is “tragedy,” “tragedy,” “tragedy.”

The Gurdjieff teacher sitting next to me heard “consciousness,” “consciousness,” consciousness.”

The Yoga teacher sitting on the other side of me heard, “cosmic egg,” “cosmic egg,” “cosmic egg.”

Someone else heard, “cut the crap,” “cut the crap,” “cut the crap.”

I heard, “contemplate,” “contemplate,” “contemplate.”

Richard Alpert (Baba Ram Dass) was sitting in the front row, and I never thought to ask him what he’d heard.


Later, when recording my own tape loop of it, I kept hearing, “cut the tape,” “cut the tape, “cut the tape.”


We manufacture our own reality, claiming what we see, hear, smell, taste, and touch is “reality.”

It IS. It’s OUR reality. Who knows what other people are “experiencing?”

We are not living in The Matrix. The Matrix is living in us.


According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

“Reality is relativity, and actuality is the unified field.”

Or, as Adano asked Roger Worden, pointing to “someone else” …

“Am I me or dat jerk over dere?”


Renu Lal Singh (Right Life: Teachings of the Shivapuri Baba, 1975, 1984) wrote …

“Albert Einstein saw him in Switzerland while he was a young student of mathematics. Shri Shivapuri Baba challenged the proposition 1 + 1 = 2. Einstein at once became contemplative but could not follow him. So far as I remember and understand, Shri Shivapuri Baba told Einstein, ‘Absolutely speaking, only God exists, so the question of adding one thing to another cannot be entertained. Relatively speaking, no two things or beings are exactly alike. So, to say 1 + 1 = 2 is convenient but not correct.'”

    Once you learn the Cornerstone Technique, it’s the closest thing to a Vulcan Mind Meld this side of Arcturus.
    All you need is a partner because it takes two to tango.

    Expose mushrooms to sunlight for vitamins D2 and D4.
    If you buy supplemental D2 in the store, it’s usually manufactured from GMO yeast.
    Many wines are made this way too.

    We’re 1/20th through the 10-Year Corona Crisis. Hang in there!
    Masks are the MINOR issue! They’re the new seat belts! The “Economic Dust Bowl is next.
    Re: How do you know it’s 10 years.
    According to Micah White at Davos — yes! *THAT* Micah White) — “I think that humanity has basically 10 years to pull off an unprecedented global mobilization.” Occupying Wall Street wasn’t enough? Occupying the world is a bigger deal?

    Davos has gone Globo-Native Viridian Green with bromides like ” “When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.” That will surely make the Sheep-Bots soil their pants!
    Not to worry. Toxic detergent is available on line from Jeff Bezos!
    Also available on Amazon, pants with fart-stopper fabric because Corona spreads in aerosols!
    Talk about due diligence! CDC and WHO beaker boys are hard at work studying the metrics of the aerosol ballistics of Corona. What poses the greatest danger? Coughs? Sneezes? Belches? Hiccups? Farts? And are wet farts worse than dry farts? Enquiring Minds Wanna Know!

    I’ve been studying the Deep State since the ninth grade in 1955.
    Elvis worship and girls in hoop skirts diverted me, but not that much.
