I want to say ‘thank you’ to all those who got in touch, both here and elsewhere.
A few months ago I pulled the site down, because I saw no point. The Ken cult was still thriving I could not change the perceptions of people on how enlightenement myths are born and supported, and on the unscrupulous operators who stand to feed on naive and mostly honest public.
Some people read silently and said nothing. Some fought with me here and then went Kenneth’s way and became firm desciples there. He was warm, ‘love ya’ kinda guy with a stick; that was attractive and a good catchment ground for aspiring seekers.
The impression that I got was just that – this is a pretty useless enterprise, this site, this investigation, this.. everything. I asked myself “Why on earth are you doing this if it helps no one, and people still pay vast amounts to fake cult leaders? What the hell is wrong with you? Not worth it, leave it all behind”.
I also thought that I didn’t want to be part of Kenneth’s legacy, so to speak, even in the role of someone who unmasked his real identity. There was something unclean about the whole operation: the secrecy, the collecting of personal ID documents from participants, the Western Union transfers.. and other things.
I shut down the site with a view to make it better, realised it involved much more work and hours than I had anticipated, and just left it behind. It was quiet, no one said anything, so.. a confirmation that there is no need to go back. It was covid, it was and is tough, the priorities were elsewhere.
Then Kenneth died. I am usually good at predicting some near future events, but I could not predict that he would appoint an heir and the Ken cult will continue to grow. Kenneth successfully REPLACED the real author with his own persona!! It was unbelievable, beyond anything I could have ever imagined. The Perfect, absolutely Perfect Scam that not even Peter is able to prevent. And let me ask you this.. what costs more, a book or a spiritual ‘course’??
Kenneth has outsmarted them all, including Peter (Jed) himself. Because in truth.. Peter used the name ‘Jed’ throughout his life in Iowa, I even have his email addresses with ‘Jed’ in it (not valid anymore, obviously). People addressed him by that name when he lived in Fairfield. And the irony is.. the explanation that Kenneth gave for the name’s origin as from his own name, was the explanation I once wrote about, when I still believed he was the real McCoy. I think Damien can confirm this from my earliest emails.
I also realised that the forum people simply do not have the full story, despite the fact that I wrote about the identity discovery here. It was written LIVE, IMMEDIATE, the events that took place often on the same day as I published them. It was a mad rush to record what was happening live. The audience was thrilled, but those who came in later, even years later, could not make head or tails of it. Is he Jed? Is he not Jed?
A book, after all? Peter? Jed? I am copyrighting the name here right now: The Perfect Scam. People might think ‘Oh I am going to do this, I read the story’. The reality is.. I placed a fraction of all the information here. Just a small part of what is available and known. So.. try it.
Let me say ‘thank you’ for saying ‘thank you’. It means I could just slowly make the entries accessible again and to add to them. It was not all in vein. There is much to add. About the real reality. About the real Peter. About the lies and the truths that move the world.
