The common problem with psychopaths... “Is they don’t see a problem with their behavior.”
Psychopath Support Group
 
“Non-victims can’t understand this, but the psychopath really does suck the life out of a caring person. I try to think of them now as a slimy suckerfish right out of the swamp, vacuum-lips out and prowling for someone vibrant and attractive to con and eviscerate.”
 

If you are a good person you will meet many evil people in your life, you need to recognize them and their actions. More importantly you need to recognize which evil behaviors you have been conned into accepting as reasonable and to reject those behaviors - both in yourself and in others - as unacceptable.

The English language has a variety of terms for psychopaths, of which "bastard" is perhaps the most polite. They have always been with us, and despite their corrosiveness and rejection of social mores, they show no signs of going away.

 
Think you can spot one? Think again. In general, psychopaths aren’t the product of broken homes or the casualties of a materialistic society. Rather they come from all walks of life and there is little evidence that their upbringing affects them.
 
Most of the two million psychopaths in North America aren’t murderers. They’re our friends, lovers and co-workers. They’re outgoing and persuasive, dazzling you with charm and flattery. Often you aren’t even aware they’ve taken you for a ride – until it’s too late.
 
The problem of plausible lies is the most serious problem facing humanity today....Most good people are only aware of the least intelligent part of the evil distribution; those are the people who are obviously evil: criminals. The normal and intelligent ends of the evil distribution totally escape most good people's understanding.
 

Only as of late, with all the Enron scandals and related crimes, people are waking up to the fact that the most dangerous psychopath of all is the educated, socially adept psychopath, in fact, Dr. Hare recently said that he would probably be able to find many psychopaths involved in the stockmarket. It is time for American to "wake up" says Dr. Wolman, because we are being threatened by a serious epidemic of psychopathy.

The Psychopathic or Sociopathic Personality

Based on twenty-five years of groundbreaking research, WITHOUT CONSCIENCE is a fascinating journey into the minds of these dangerous individuals. Are they born unable to feel empathy, or are they created by circumstance? How and why do they get away with cheating, conning, and murdering? Are they mad or simply bad? In what Dr. Hare calls our "camouflage society," how can we recognize and steer clear of these predatory people?

WITHOUT CONSCIENCE explores their shocking patterns- and exposes one of the most frightening, often-hidden social problems affecting our lives today.

 

The Psychopath is much more successful than you and I because he is not hemmed in by all sorts of impediments or worries.

A discussion with Adolf Guggenbuhl-Craig & James Hillman

 
“We fall prey to the seduction, it is irresistible. Then the nightmare of horror begins. The shabby treatment, the avoidance. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me. He had been so sincere, so kind. It was Jekyl and Hyde.”
 
“They go for the strongest and the best, but preferably those who are something of rebels within the group...the LEAST controllable. Because if they can crush them, they crush most of the rest at the same time. If they start at the bottom, with the weakest, it’s a long way to work their way up…The ideal target is therefore, strong, smart, rebellious and vulnerable through previous abuse.”
 
“A favored technique is to debilitate your identity [personally, I hate the term self-esteem] by levelling false accusations and/or questioning your honesty, fidelity, trustworthiness, your “true” motivations, your “real” character, your sanity and judgement.”
 
“They are absolutely the world’s best manipulators, liars, and fabricators of truth. They do so convincingly because they believe their own lies. After all their life is nothing but a lie, a sham, how can we possibly assume they know anything different.”
 
“Others around me would get so tired of the whole thing and insinuate that I was perpetuating things. All I wanted was for him to leave me alone. Part of the hurt and damage was done because others could but would not see what was actually happening. He would always try to ingratiate himself to others it was sickening. Usually psychopaths put on the nicest act, and you look like the harpy and bitch, and so everyone takes their side, it is a horror story, a psychopath can be very charming, and manipulative and manipulate the smartest of people.”
 
“My biggest frustration and source of anger, is at those who have refused to take a stand when they see the abuse . No matter how outrageous his behavior others often stood by and inadvertently fuelled his grandiosity and denial... although denial is too mild a word for it.
 
“If a psychopath throws the “bad childhood” stuff at you, keep in mind he might be trying to get sympathy and make an excuse for his atrocious behavior towards you and/or others. If we let these people make us feel sorry for them, we ultimately end up in the submissive position again...just what they want. I can “pity” them yes...but I refuse to shed another tear over the tragedies suffered by who is now, only a shell of a person.”
 

Regarding a psychopath: Considering a longitudinal section of his life ...it is hard to avoid the conclusion that here is the product of true madness - of madness in a sense quite as real as that conveyed to the imaginative layman by the terrible word lunatic.

With the further consideration that all this skein of apparent madness has been woven by a person of (technically) unimpaired and superior intellectual powers and universally regarded as sane, the surmise intrudes that we are confronted by a serious and unusual type of genuine abnormality.

Not merely a surmise but a strong conviction may arise that this apparent sanity is, in some important respects, a sanity in name only. We find instead a spectacle that suggests madness in excelsis, despite the absence of all those symptoms that enable us, in some degree, to account for irrational conduct in the psychotic.

Only very slowly and by a complex estimation or judgment based on multitudinous small impressions does the conviction come upon us that, despite these intact rational processes, these normal emotional affirmations, and their consistent application in all directions, we are dealing here not with a complete man at all but with something that suggests a subtly constructed reflex machine which can mimic the human personality perfectly.

So perfect is this reproduction of a whole and normal man that no one who examines him in a clinical setting can point out in scientific or objective terms why, or how, he is not real. And yet we eventually come to know or feel we know that reality, in the sense of full, healthy experiencing of life, is not here.

 

 
“Leaving is hard because of all that goes along with the going. It is not just the person you have to give up but your hopes and dreams and fantasies. It only happened for me in increments and I cried UNCLE often thinking if I gave it one more go I’d break through. It wasn’t until I really knew that no matter what I said or did or didn’t do this person could never love me or anyone.”
 
“The fantasy was exactly that, a FANTASY, that he created for himself, and presented to me as reality. My head said the fantasy wasn’t valid. I kept reminding myself: if the fantasy was real, I wouldn’t be treated like dirt, and feel like shit!”
 
“I have finally come to the conclusion that they cannot change, so all we can do is to refuse to participate in their sick drama and leave the stage.”
 

Cleckley: [T]he familiar tendency to disintegrate, against which life evolves, may be regarded as fundamental and comparable to gravity. The climbing man or animal must use force and purpose to ascend or to maintain himself at a given height. [...] Whether regression occurs primarily through something like gravity or through impulses more self-contained, the backward movement (or ebbing) is likely to prompt many sorts of secondary reactions, including behavior not adapted for ordinary human purposes but instead, for functioning in the other direction. The modes of such reactivity may vary, may fall into complex patterns, and may seek elaborate expression. [...] People with all the outer mechanisms of adaptation intact might, one would think, regress more complexly. [...] In a movement (or gravitational drift) from levels where life is vigorous and full to those where it is less so, the tactics of withdrawal predominate. [...] The psychopath as we conceive of him in such an interpretation seems to justify the high estimate of his technical abilities as we see them expressed in reverse movement.

Vincent Bridges Tells His Own Story

The Bridges - Jadczyk Correspondence


Vincent Bridges writes:

I took a few days off and did something that needed doing since I moved eight years ago - I dove into my boxes and boxes of files and old manuscripts looking for the evidence.

Well, if the basic accusation against me is that I padded my resume, then I think I might have conclusive proof that the opposite is true. (Posted on M-Files under the folder VB) Turns out, I have forgotten about more articles etc. than I ever mentioned on either of the bio blurbs with which they are having such fun. And this stuff was actually written under "Vincent Bridges"...

QFS Opinion and notes: The accusation is not that Mr. Bridges "padded" his resume, but that he created it out of whole cloth, with no foundation in fact. He's provided no evidence whatsoever of high profile writing claims. Instead what we see is an extremely mediocre scribbler and twice-failed novelist. But Mr. Bridges attempts to divert attention from the issue of false claims already made by producing other "proof" of his "extensive writing credits" that have nothing to do with the fact that his published claims were all false.

I stand accused also of being a pathological liar or worse, and while that is demonstrably not true, I must confess to a few very human weaknesses. 1) I have a bad memory for things that don't rate as important and that is chiefly my personal trials, tribulations and accomplishments. 2) I can be somewhat lazy. I'm sure there are plenty of others, including a healthy ego, but these form the crux of the current problem.

QFS wishes to interject, at this point, an apparent example of what Mr. Bridges must be calling a "bad memory for things that don't rate as important, such as other people's lives and the truth.

One week after discussion over company phone of Greenbaum, you, my visit, etc., my partner, Jay, gets fired, they cancel our distribution arrangement, no AMET/Aethyrea/MagicJouney.com in 6 mil run catalog, etc. One day after our phone discussion, where the plug was pulled, a strange woman pulls up in my driveway and starts taking pictures, with a digital camera of my house. I go out to see what she wants, and she takes a picture of me and leaves. Two days after Jay gets fired, every computer in the house comes down with a strange virus. All files on the hard disk are converted to unreadable formats. Same time period, a strange young lady tries to put the Love Bite on one of my friends, the only person with access to our house and us. She over played her hand, but programming seems to have been done.

The attacks came toward weaklinks. Jay, in fact, worked for a key figure in all this, JR [details deleted to protect the innocent]. We had talked about everything under the sun, including Jon Benet Ramsey, on the company phone line. We start talking seriously about your piece of the puzzle, and boom, the buy-out is over! What could be worse than implicating JR himself in JBR's murder? Duh, I don't know, talking to a channeler in Florida? Something very strange is going on, indeed!

QFS Opinion and note: Mr. Bridges is apparently, in the above remarks, attempting to "ratchet up" his importance by claiming that the very fact he was talking to Laura put his life in danger and brought on all kinds of difficulties, suggested to be originating from another individual whose character he has defamed by implicating him in the murder of JonBenet Ramsey. The implication is that the individual in question, (don't be surprised), is a member of some Satanic group that preys on children and that the Satanists are to blame for all his trouble. But what is more fascinating about the above account, written in the first part of August, 2000, is how it morphed according to how it could serve Mr. Bridges's purposes. As soon as he had a new "target" for attack and defamation, the story was presented somewhat differently. Significant is the fact that, apparently Mr. Bridges "forgot" the dates. Keep in mind that these emails were sent to a group of people. There are witnesses, it is not just a "claim" or a vicious attack on Mr. Bridges! Here is the other version of the same drama:

On Sun, 11 Feb 2001 19:29:46 -0500, Vincent Bridges writes:

First, October was a time of massive problems, including mysterious burglars that did nothing but read my email and crash all three computers at once, even though they are not connected to each other. We also had the problems with the State Department over the books getting frozen in customs. But the weird thing is that two days after we should have been in France, but weren't for another collection of strange events, a rental car, luxury model, pulls up in my driveway and two well dressed people, man about 55, gray hair glasses, woman roughly 35, suit, blonde hair, gets out and begins to take photos of my house. I went and glared at them, and they calmly continued to get a few shots of me on the front porch. Then, without a word, they got in the car and drove away. Now my house is funky Victorian gothic, yes, but we rarely get anonymous photographers. Try never, actually.

QFS Opinion and note: The events of late July, early August of 2000 have now been firmly transferred to October, because Mr. Bridges was using those events to defame a particular individual who he felt was a threat to his objective of taking over the Cassiopaean material and group and forming a cult following with himself as the guru and leader, and it was only in October that they could be attributed to the individual in question whose whereabouts were known at all other times by other people. He also added a man to the scenario. What was formerly a "woman," was now a "man and a woman." Also, instead of the picture taking woman leaving as soon as Mr. Bridges appears outside, in the next version, he goes outside to "glare" at them and they "calmly continued to get a few shots of me."

Is this an example of how Mr. Bridges "forgets" things that are unimportant? Is this an example of his laziness? If so, it is criminal forgetting and criminal laziness because this story was used to con-Vince a significant group of people that Mr. Bridges was an "expert" on Satanism, Satanic "ritual abuse," and mind-programming, as well as to manipulate the group into believing that a possibly innocent person was an "agent" of Satanists. Mr. Bridges, however, was not content to have shifted the action of the above story two months in time to make it "fit" his libelous and defamatory remarks about another person, he brought in "supporting witnesses" and elaborated on the tale to make his breathless audience absolutely certain that he was the bravest man of all time to defy such horrifying, Satanic pursuers who, it seems in retrospect, only existed in his mind. Let's look at THAT version now:

Vincent Bridges writes:
Date sent: Sat, 14 Apr 2001 21:39:29 -0400

To begin, let's tug on that loose thread of JM one more time and see what unravels.

Now one of the truly bizarre aspects of the whole, and the loose thread in JM's attempt, was why was he taking a picture of me and my house during the infamous October non-furniture market trip? We can safely surmise that he was, since he never directly answered my question about it, and even pretended he had lost the post. Later, he alluded to it as if it were common knowledge, which by that point it certainly was. So the question is why? And I've always felt that if we could get an answer, even a partial one, to that question much of the rest would unravel.

With the help of a few computer savvy friends I did some checking and guess what? Someone from JM's address was reading sangraal and magicjourney as early as September, 1999. "JM" continued to read at a steady pace, focusing mostly on my Grail material, the RLC stuff when it went up and, here's where it gets interesting, my millennium Enochian material. That means that "JM" knew all about me and my stuff long before he contacted Laura and Ark.

[Mr. Bridges claims to know what anyone is reading because his friend, "StormBear Williams" is a gifted computer guru and "hacker" and can track anyone via computer.]

In May 2000, when the first FWMS [Fifth Way Mystery School] page went up, guess who was in the first ten people to check it out, actually, the first outside the inner group? Yep, "JM". He also downloaded the source info on the page and apparently used it to track its owner, another friend Stormy. [Storm Bear Williams "The charter officers of the PAC have been selected and they are Storm Bear Williams; President/Treasurer, "Vincent Bridges"; Vice- President and Bill Stewart will serve as PAC Secretary."]

June, 2000, Stormy gets an email from one JM, an humble newage pagan type investment broker from Brussels looking for newage internet investment opportunities. Stormy of course is thrilled and they chat by email until October, when JM is supposedly coming to NC to scout out investment opportunities. JM makes plans to meet Stormy.

OK, so far so good, but unfortunately, there are two more layers of Weirdness involved. My book, A Monument to the End of Time, was at printers ready to go for the Christmas book-buying season. And then this old client called me and told me the strangest story I'd heard in a long time.

Because of confidentiality, I can't go into the whole story, but she did tell me that she had been in an accident and that she now had a broken tooth in a jar with strange ceramic fillings and wires coming out the bottom. And she was under severe attack.

So my compassion button was triggered, along of course with my desire for "proof" and I went to her rescue and took my eye off the ball at a very crucial moment. I ended up learning about a whole new level of the ball game, learning the hard way.

My book was printed in Canada, and so when it hit the border, customs, for a variety of still undetermined reasons, confiscated the whole load. I started pulling strings and the distributor I had lined up was in East Tenn. and had some pull with the Gore people. He made a few calls and my books got released. Except they went back to Canada, to the printers, and then made a new attempt at customs. This was the last week in September, 2000.

Due to some kind of mix up, the books, when they left the printer's and cleared customs a second time, were shipped to the wrong address in Tenn. A couple of weeks went by and the books were still missing. I'm of course preoccupied with the dramas of possession and mind control.

According to S__, JM showed up on the 20th from somewhere, went away, supposedly to the furniture market and then came back. On the 19th, a well dressed, balding man with a European accent visited with my distributor in Tenn. for over an hour. Gene has never talked about it directly, but his partner, George, source of the above description, told me that he was somebody from the State Department and informed them that doing business with my little publishing company could endanger their overseas sales and exports permits, etc. Upshot, when the books finally do arrive, I have no distribution, and therefore limited sales for the Christmas season. In other words, possible ruin for my little company.

QFS Opinion and note: We will be checking these claims, although we realize from the above that there is no point in checking claims with any of Mr. Bridges's cohorts. Meanwhile, back to Bridges's ramble:

Remember Stormy? Well, he's been getting weird calls from JM trying to set up a meeting. Stormy senses something squirrely, JM is acting like no investor he's ever seen. They agree to meet at the mall in Winston-Salem. The date, Monday October 23.

Well, by 8 that evening he was in WS at Hanes Mall meeting with Stormy. Their meeting goes very much like A___'s, with JM trying to play mind games. First off, Stormy was shocked that JM was interested in the FWMS and not, as Stormy had supposed, his music website, downslam.com. JM kept asking about the France trips and if we had gone to RLC. Stormy of course knew nothing about any of this and simply referred him to me. Then JM started in on the word association stuff and Stormy backed way off. They left, with JM promising to call, and of course never did. Stormy recently sent him an email, to which there has been no reply.

At the time, Stormy called me up and told me about some strange guy from Europe who wanted to know about FWMS and tried to hypnotize him. We laughed it off, Stormy was getting a lot of strange folks showing up for other reasons. I never thought to ask the guy's name until last weekend when all the website sleuthing turned him up. But it was him, same hotmail address and everything, but a completely different story.

On the 24th, around 2pm, someone is taking pictures of me and my house. The next morning, the 25th, I leave for Asheville and my client, who has called in the meantime in desperate straits. That afternoon, JM shows back up at S's, while my client and I face the wrath of hell level psychic attack. I do not get home until late the next day. At which point I discover that three out of four of our computers have crashed, even though they are not in any way connected. These are Macs and never have these kinds of problems. One, the older of the group, has a quirk about how you turn it off, and when we did get it going again it showed clearly that someone had fired it up and shut it down incorrectly.

QFS note: Allow us to refresh the reader's memory with the original version of the above story, written on August 10, 2000 where we find mention of a "strange young lady" who tries to put the "love bite" on one of Mr. Bridges, who has now, apparently, morphed into a client and the attack of demons:

One week after discussion over company phone of Greenbaum, you, my visit, etc., my partner, Jay, gets fired, they cancel our distribution arrangement, no AMET/Aethyrea/MagicJouney.com in 6 mil run catalog, etc. One day after our phone discussion, where the plug was pulled, a strange woman pulls up in my driveway and starts taking pictures, with a digital camera of my house. I go out to see what she wants, and she takes a picture of me and leaves. Two days after Jay gets fired, every computer in the house comes down with a strange virus. All files on the hard disk are converted to unreadable formats. Same time period, a strange young lady tries to put the Love Bite on one of my friends, the only person with access to our house and us. She over played her hand, but programming seems to have been done.

The attacks came toward weaklinks. Jay, in fact, worked for a key figure in all this, JR, mystery [details deleted to protect the innocent]. We had talked about everything under the sun, including Jon Benet Ramsey, on the company phone line. We start talking seriously about your piece of the puzzle, and boom, the buy-out is over! What could be worse than implicating JR himself in JBR's murder? Duh, I don't know, talking to a channeler in Florida? Something very strange is going on, indeed!

Back to the current Bridges rebuttal:

We are forced to the inescapable conclusion that whatever JM was doing, it involved checking on both me and Laura's C group. Even though he was completely unaware of our connection. Imagine his surprise then when Laura mentioned me in December. He tried to put it off with a bit of bluster, his first email to me, but my reply must have thrown everything for a loop. If Stormy HAD mentioned his name in October, then he could conclude that the game was up when I emailed about him taking photos of my house. I must be telling everybody that he had shown up under a different story, for instance.

So, he pretended that he hadn't received the email and began to work on Laura about me. When that blew up in mid-January, he knew that something major was wrong with the plan and so tried to trigger what he thought was a code blue sleeper, Teresa [Burns]. That he misjudged Teresa is as much of a break as the fact that he didn't know that Laura and I were connected. The unexpected and the unforeseen undid the plan.

What was the plan? What was JM trying to do?

As I was looking at what JM was reading off both sites, a pattern appeared. He was reading about demonic possession, the grail and the Enochian apocalypse workings at the same time. Laura jumped to the A list in December with those spectacularly successful hits on the Moon and Flight 990, but I didn't hit the A list until May when the JonBenet Ramsey article went up on magicjourney. By A list, I mean that JM, or somebody at his address, downloaded most of my site, and soon thereafter the weirdness began.

Without bogging down with details, let's just say that by July 1st, three years worth of projects had disappeared in the dust. I plunged ahead with printing the book out sheer cussed-ness. By October, see above, things had hit a real nadir.

So, when JM discovered that Laura and I were connected, the best approach was to try to involve me in the up-coming projects. And that's just what he did. This might even have worked short term as a way to marginalize us both. But his story had too many holes and it was just a matter of time before we all started talking and figured it out. However he was eased out so smoothly that he hardly knew what had hit him. He knew we were on to him, but he didn't know how much we could glean from the clues he left behind.

Therefore we are left looking for the link between demonic possession, the Grail legends and the Encohian Sedona workings. Add to that successful remote viewing by the Cs and the Ramsey case and what have you got?

QFS Opinion and note: Regarding the above lengthy "novelization," as Mr. Bridges will call it, we direct the reader's attention to the information provided by a confidential informant who has also been subjected to a similar approach and who described the process in his own words as follows:

The next part of the manipulation is to "wind up" the target by making them believe that the association is causing the perpetrator to "catch a lot of 'heat' from spooky agencies as well as 'magickal' groups. They describe being stalked, having their computers hacked, suffering all kinds of attacks because they are acting for "the good of mankind," even if in their dark past, they did get close to the pit. Naturally, they were appalled by their "close call," and that is why they are so knowledgable about such things, even if they have decided to use their knowledge "for the good!"

But, let's continue on with Mr. Bridges's rebuttal:

A few years back, when I re-emerged and started to write again, my new agent, Stephanie Evans, suggested that I make my bio as strong as possible by putting in as many writing credits as I could. So rather than do what I did the last few days, that is digging through the vault, I simply rattled off my areas of expertise, a few magazines that I remembered having my reviews in, along with a couple of newspaper jobs and let it go at that. Sometime later I put in the Walpurgisnacht reference, and here I did make a mistake. I didn't bother to completely check my facts.

You see, I didn't think it was important and as I said before, it was a sign of insecurity and amateurishness to include a twenty year old first novel anyway. But I did and what makes it truly stupid is that I did it without checking my own files about the outcome of that first novel fiasco. So frankly, I deserve to have my hand slapped, and good god has it been.

QFS Opinion and notes: By now, we no longer think that simple forgetting is at the root of Mr. Bridges's "proof problem." Nor was it a sign of insecurity and amateurishness. In our opinion, Mr. Bridges is not stupid nor forgetful. His mind is not delusional. It seems to be growing increasingly apparent that stupidity and delusion are qualities that he attributes to his followers and the world around him; an indication of the disdain he has for his fellow man, particularly women. Back to the Bridges Rambling Rebuttal:

So, at the risk of boring everyone to tears by rehashing my personal history, I feel that explanations are in order. However, since I'd hate to cheat L'ark's attorneys out of their fees for depositions, I will be leaving a few gaps for them to try and fill in. But I'll also present supporting evidence that makes the very nature of their accusations absurd.

Keep in mind please, that I did not join this group until October and before that time anything I had to say about the Cassiopaeans and my problems with Laura were conducted within the bounds of the Cassiopaean circle. I did not attack her publicly, not on my website, nowhere. Still haven't. There are no "arkster" Austrian Cs transcripts, and the transcripts have been shared with no one, period. I did join this group, after L'ark smeared Teresa and conspired with another whacko to defame me just about as they have done. Only at that point did I join this group and even then said nothing remotely as bad as what she had been saying about me in both public and private for months. Come on! They've called me everything from a satanist to a pathological liar and I've done no more than tell the truth about our business dealing and the mirror sessions, suggest that everyone ask for the release of the complete, unedited transcripts and point out the inescapable fact that they are, obviously, displaying signs of STS based cultic behavior. Isn't it absolutely clear to everyone by now who is in attack mode and who is being attacked?

QFS Opinion and notes: In all cases, we are letting the evidence speak for itself. Mr. Bridges has yet to present any evidence that he has NOT manipulated facts, prestidigitated the truth, played fast and loose with the perceptions and minds of anyone who listens to him. Bridges seems to regard the presentating of truth in response to evident lies an "attack." Regarding Mr. Bridges claims about the business dealings and the referenced "mirror sessions," those matters will be covered in full, with text, evidence from three witnesses who all refute Mr. Bridges, (all of whom, we might add, have track records of success and fair dealing in business as well as interpersonal interactions, a claim that Mr. Bridges apparently cannot make), as well as the tape recordings, and subsequent commentary from the Cassiopaean "source" regarding Mr. Bridges actions and agenda. Returning to Mr. Bridges rebuttal:

With that in mind, let me proceed:

Yes, I was a very precocious and talented kid. In 1970, I won both the National Thesipan Society Playwriting Award and honorable mention (4th place I think) in the National Book Awards Young Poets Competition. My mother will be happy to show you the trophies and scrapbooks. The book I won the poetry award for, The Green Ink Notes, can be found in the Rare Book Collection, SC Writers section of the Greenville SC public library along with several articles written about me at the time.

Also in 1970, I participated in the SC Writers in the Schools programs, where, at the group orientation/conference in Charleston, I met Mr. Dickey. He said a good word to the English department at USC that fall for me and we met socially several times before I joined the periphery of the group. I caught his attention again with a stupid play I wrote and performed with my theatre friends. It was a twisted version of Shakespeare compressed into Macbeth, and my mother will gladly show you the playbills and reviews the next time you're in Greenville. This was my first attack of pseudonym-itis. I called myself Birnham Bridges.

At USC, one of the alumni academic clubs sponsored an exchange program in literature with several major universities in Europe and elsewhere. Scholarships were awarded by competition, and I entered in Shakespeare because there was less of it. I won my essay, but still needed several academic references, and Mr. Dickey was kind enough to supply one. On the basis of this, it certainly wasn't my grades, I was accepted in the exchange program.

So of course, I never applied to Oxford, never said I did. I went as a part of a program at my university. Again I must plead slackness. When I wrote that email to Olga I did not mean it as a resume or fact check for security clearance kind of thing. It was a simple, though lengthy, email answering L'ark's increasingly vicious attacks.

QFS Opinion and note: At this point, we have to comment that this is untrue. Mr. Bridges attacked Ark and Laura and the Cassiopaea research group, including private information and defamatory statements, in an email sent to 180 people, many of whom were not members of the private and closed discussion group. We consider that a public act of defamation

[Here, the 180 recipients' names and emails have been removed for privacy of the innocent, but the entire email, with full headers, can be made available to legitimate researchers.]

I don't know how you guys feel about censorship, but if you've been reading the cassiopaean list, and my apologies to those who are no longer connected, and don't have a clue what is going on, well, these censored emails should have fill you in. I would appreciate it someone would see that everyone not included in this mailing get a chance to see it as well. maybe someone will one brave enough to re-post on the list. Thanks, "Vincent"

He posted defamatory comments and lies on the publicly accessible cass message board. He illegally claimed that Ark and Laura were responsible for refunding the monies paid by attendees of his conference who had paid in advance.

At this point in time, Ark and Laura had done two things, and two things only:

1)cancel participation in his conference six weeks in advance, which was their right, giving him plenty of time to find an acceptable replacement, and

2) removed him from the private, invitation only Cassiopaea egroup, of which they are owners, which was also their right.

Both of these actions were purely and simply the result of the fact that Mr. Bridges's agenda was discovered and satisfacorily tested. Ark and Laura had no interest in revealing what they had discovered publicly, but merely to separate themselves from any business and personal association. Further, there were numerous complaints from other members of the group itself who essentially, "voted" Mr. Bridges out. That is not cultic activity, it is simple Free Will.

At that point, as can be seen from the date on the above email, August 7, 2001, Mr. Bridges initiated his attacks, all of which centered around money - the fact that he did not want to refund any - and little else,

It was only in response to this series of rabid public attacks that any comments about Mr. Bridges were made at all.

The cited "email to Olga" was NOT in response to vicious attacks. There were NO "vicious attacks." There were, indeed, private discussions about Mr. Bridges, and the privacy of the group was again violated by Teresa Burns and the above mentioned Olga, at whose instigation Mr. Bridges continued his attacks. These attacks, by Mr Bridges and others, against "cassiopaea" - making accusations that the discussion group was a cult - were regularly posted on a publicly accessible bulletin board, and included additional attacks by Teresa Burns who also regularly, repeatedly and illegally violated the Cassiopaea group's privacy.

We now know that Mr. Bridges's "versions" of events are, in his own words, "jokes" and "novelized" or he has "forgotten" the facts. This is, in our opinion, evidence of the malicious and vindictive nature of his attacks.

Further, Mr. Bridges's statement that he was only "answering vicious attacks" with his many statements that once again, proved to be false begs the question of whose intent is it to confuse and mislead? For example, Mr. Bridges did write, quite clearly, the following about his visit to Oxford:

"when I found the right college [...] I immediately found the bursar and conned him into cashing my scholarship check and then letting me leave without paying out my tuition."

Any person reading such a statement, where a bursar at Oxford, who is in charge of the monies, is included as part of the scenario, and that it was a "scholarship," cannot help but infer that Oxford University was involved. And it is clear that such inference was intended.

Of course no one was looking at it as a resume for a fact check or a security clearance, it is just another statement in a long series of statements that seem to indicate that Mr. Bridges hardly knows what the truth is - about himself or anyone. He has either "forgotten," or "it was a joke" or it was a "novelization." If that is the case, then who is viciously attacking whom? Does Mr. Bridges make a habit of "joking," or "novelizing" or "forgetting the facts"? One is reminded of Bill Clinton who didn't "exactly" have sexual intercourse with Monica Lewinsky. What is more, he "forgot" about what he did do immediately after. Returning to Bridges's Rebuttal:

(Look, I met Suzy in the lounge on the way out to London, it could have been BOAC, it could have been Pan-Am or Delta, crikey it was almost 30 years ago... And as a matter of fact, in 1972 it took a train and three buses to get to Stonehenge from Oxford. I spent the afternoon and caught the last bus out to some strange little town (Have no idea what it was) where an early train took me back to London. I took a taxi from Paddington, I think, to Victoria and the shuttle to the airport. I was in Paris by sunset. I hope that clears up my tangled syntax: "By the next morning, I made a brief excursion to see Stonehenge, I was on the plane to Paris," should have read: "By the next morning, after I had made a brief excursion to Stonehenge the day before...")

Anyone bored yet? Now, the rest of the story is frankly no one's business. Who cares how many family favors I had to call in to make an arrangement with the university? Frankly I'm curious just how much information the State Department will give out to any loonie or stalker who asks for it. Guess we'll see... One final note on Mr. Dickey... I certainly considered him a mentor, but regrettably I let him and everyone else down and so I became "that hippie kid who blew his chance by running off with some French babe." Somehow, I'm not surprised that the James Dickey Society has never heard of me...

Moving on, I guess the next question is have I ever been a journalist? Let's see, editor of the weekly high school paper, started two underground newspapers, The Graffiti and The Middle Earth News, wrote features for the Greenville News, wrote on the USC Daily Gamecock and after leaving USC went to work for the North Charleston News, not please note The News from Kingstree SC. The NCN was based in Monk's Corner and Goose Creek. I worked there in 1974 and 1975, but unfortunately the paper folded about a year after I left. I don't seem to have any copies left in the vault to prove it, but witnesses to the paper's existence and my tenure there are plentiful.

One newspaper that I do cite still exists and is not hard to find, the North Davidson Dispatch. And copies exist of my work, see exhibit A/north davidson dispatch posted on the Matrioshka files. We'll take up the rest of my journalism work as we go along.

OK, what about music reviews? In 1976, I signed a work for hire contract with a literary agency/feature content provider syndicate to do rock and roll and performance reviews which were then used by magazines and such as filler and standard features. For those of you too young to remember, there were once things called pulp magazines, and the featured work for hire contract was a left over from those good old, bad old, days. The people I worked for were stuck in the Street & Smith/Argosy pulp world...

QFS Opinion and note: In other words, NOT Rolling Stone, Seventeen, Cream, Hustler, etc. But we understand. Such things as truth are "forgotten" by Mr. Bridges as being unimportant. Doesn't matter if it is eight years or a few months, he forgets when convenient. What is more, he seems to remember an awful lot of things that never happened at all. Back to the Bridges Rebuttal:

...and were looking for a way to break into more hip markets. So, I churned out hipness on a piece rate scale that let me keep all the albums. Paid the bills fairly steadily from 1976 to 1982. Sometimes I'd see the same review in three different magazines under different names. Believe me they weren't great literature...

Can I prove it? Yep, but not by emailing the accounts department of all those magazines and asking about "Vincent Bridges". Fortunately, the ex-wife and secretary of my old boss during that period is still a good friend and has all the paper work stored safely away. Which brings us back to Walpurgisnacht.

I have found several drafts and pieces of the project in the vault, and have had my memory jogged by another friend who was directly involved. There are several points to consider:

1) The novel was written under strange circumstances. My syndication agent had arranged with DAW for the books publication under our current work for hire contract as the idea was to produce a series of occult Nazis science fiction written by a classic pulp house pseudonym "Roland Maxwell." The company essentially bought my research and hired me to rough out the first novel in the series. I received nothing from DAW, and even if the deal had gone through, I would have received nothing directly from DAW. I was paid by the syndication agency.

2) Since my life and my sanity was on the line at that particular point, it is not too surprising that I have forgotten some of the details, particularly those that happened after I retreated to NC. At that point, I wanted as much distance as possible from everyone in my former existence.

3) Walpugisnacht was my working title. The Astral Reich was the proposed series title and this was to be Walpugisnacht in the Astral Reich. One of the major problems was that everyone hated the title.

So, I over wrote and turned out a novel that didn't make anyone happy. The series was due to kick off in 1981, but naturally didn't. In October of 1982, the syndication agency paid me off for my work on the project and I signed a release for all rights. First novel fiasco indeed! So, as I said, I never should have mentioned it to begin with without looking up in my own files what had happened to it. I will now stop to wipe the serious egg off my face...

QFS Opinion, notes: Mr. Bridges has more egg on his face than he realizes. Again, he has morphed the story, but he is unable to let go of his claim to DAW being the publisher. DAW has responded to this "morphing" of the story as follows:

Dear Ms. Knight-Jadczyk:

Thank you for forwarding the additional information from Mr. Bridges. [...]

I can state with absolute certainty that DAW has never signed any agreements with any syndication agencies, nor (and more importantly) would DAW ever publish any books featuring Nazis. DAW was, in fact, founded by a Jewish family, and this policy has existed for 30 years.

It is possible, of course, that Mr. Bridges did work for some syndication agency at that time, and that they mislead him regarding a publishing arrangement with DAW. However, DAW maintains that we have no business ties with Mr. Bridges.

If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Vincent Bridges continues:

OK, what's next? G. Richard Bozarth perhaps? Well the original manuscript has yet to turn up in the vault. Not much is left from that era in my life, so that is not surprising. But one of my oldest friends remembers me reading it to him just after I finished it and can testify that certain elements in the story came from discussions we had previously had on the subject. I also found another story from the same era that I wrote as G. Richard Bozarth. The title page is exhibitB/Bozarth on the M files. It is written on a 1923 Underwood portable on onion skin erasable bond, the same paper that F. Scott Fitzgerald used. No doubt about it, I was a literary snot in those days... Although not dated, this story couldn't have been written after June 1978, since I lost most of my belongings, including the typewriter, in a storage room disaster in Durham NC. The G. Richard Bozarth story in question appeared in the September 1978 issue, so this piece was written just after Scithers approved the sale. Not conclusive proof, but getting closer...

QFS Opinion and note: We wonder if the "oldest friend" is the same friend who is cited as a witness in the previous story defaming Mr. JM?

Regarding the story written by G. Richard Bozarth, published in the September 1978 issue of Asimov's magazine, entitled "Bat Durston, Space Marshal," confirmed by George Scithers, (who denies ever knowing, communicating with, or having any business dealings with "Vincent Bridges"), and Asimov's magazine, was written by the REAL G. Richard Bozarth of Texas. The check written in payment for the story was issued to, and cashed by, G. Richard Bozarth, as confirmed by George Scithers and Asimov's magazine. The fact that the story was written by the REAL G. Richard, was confirmed by his wife. Mr. Bozarth is still living, and still writing.

Perhaps Mr. Bridges simply has not understood that there is a real G. Richard Bozarth who can prove that he is the author of the story "Bat Durston, Space Marshal,"published in Asimov's magazine in September of 1978, if necessary? However, Mr. Bridges has "produced" proof (?) in the form of a piece of old paper with a title written on it with an old typewriter. We believe that there is a name for this type of "evidence production..." Click to see UPDATE! Back to Bridges's Rebuttal:

Oh and I did find a few music reviews and articles that I wrote after I left the syndicate. Exhibit C/Crescent Observer is a selection from a book I was working on at that point on the musical roots of Reggae. I still think it is a fine piece of work...

In the 1980's I worked for the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival. Exhibit D/NCSF is my very first newsletter with a pretty fair article on Richard III. Over the next few years, I wrote everything from press releases to magazine articles to program notes and teaching programs. Copies of all it exist.

After that, I went back to journalism, helping to start a movie industry trade paper for NC. See exhibit E/TriadpageCarolina Film for an example. I also wrote articles on the subject for other NC publications and even upon occasion uncredited articles in the Hollywood Reporter. See exhibit F/Carolina piedmont for an example.

So have I made my point yet? I've written steadily for over 30 years. In the 1980s, I had a failed novel, kept on writing and did another novel Moonshadow's Ghost with a friend, and then a novella that got turned into a movie treatment called Alice: A Ghost Story and 2/3 of a book on the White Indian Myth, along with newspapers magazines press releases playbill copy and so on.

"Vincent Bridges" wrote on Thu, 13 May 1999 22:06:50 -0500:

"Fifteen years ago, I wrote a book, unpublished, called the White Indian Myth. It bounced around among publishers for a while, and the basic story was optioned for a movie, which also never happened."

Now, suddenly, it was only 2/3 of a book... Back to Bridges's ongoing, embarrassing lies:

There's so much more I could scan in - pages from Dr. P's unpublished works, other published stories and articles, articles written for national magazines by my clients about their therapy with me, introductory thanks from works such as Rena's Promise, Random House, co-authored by a former client. And so on...

QFS Opinion and notes: We certainly wish Mr. Bridges could get over his self-confessed laziness and scan the above referenced publications. That he doesn't, under the circumstances, only suggests that said materials simply do not exist. Additionally, as we understand it, Dr. Puharich's family have undertaken to discover where his unpublished papers are, to which they are entitled legally. We have forwarded all pertinent remarks about them and Dr. Puharich to the interested parties. Back to Bridges's Rebuttal:

Other quick points on that front include: The MPD clinic was an informal group of psychologist and psychiatrists that met at the Rose and Thistle Cafe in W-S twice a month to discuss their Disassociative Disorder and MPD clients. Dr. Joan Essic, Wake Forest 1988 I believe, was a friend first who, because of our work together on hypnosis - she introduced me to Ericsonnian - recommended that the group try me out on a few of their incorrigibles. When I got results that they couldn't explain, they started to send me more clients. I was never asked to the meetings, and so don't remember their names. All of that is in another collection of boxes and files yet to go through.

QFS Opinion and Note: Mr. Bridges has here stretched our credulity to the breaking point. Keep in mind that his clear statement was: "When I was doing therapy, I worked with Dr. Joan Essic of the Bowman-Gray Medical School's MPD clinic..." The question we would like to ask is "who is trying to confuse and mislead whom?" As we have noted: We have found a Dr. Ellyn Joan Essic, who obtained her Ph.D. in 1999 from University of North Carolina at Greensboro. At this point, we are unable to connect her with the Bowman-Gray Medical School but will keep trying. We have sent written inquiries, including the entire transcripts of all Mr. Bridges claims to a selection of individuals at Wake Forest/Bowman Gray. We will update them with the further information about the psychologists and psychiatrists meeting at the cafe who were sending Mr. Bridges their clients so that they can investigate this matter. Back to Bridges's Rebuttal:

My former therapy partner, Dr Jean Templeton, (who blew Laura's crap off as clearly delusional - everyone please note that not a word of that exchange has been mentioned) claims me as her hypnosis teacher on her own hypnotherapy certification application. She has an excellent kid's book out on incest, with illustrations by another of our mutual clients. See http://www.ntrnet.net/~iuvioav/sld001.htm.

QFS Opinion and notes: Three inquiries to Dr. Templeton have resulted in no response. But, please note that Mr. Bridges's initial claims about Dr. Templeton were that "She turned me on to hypnosis," and now is stating that Dr. Templeton is listing Mr. Bridges as her hypnosis teacher. This does raise certain questions about Dr. Templeton herself, considering all that we are discovering about Mr. Bridges and his close associates and their loose handling of truth, and evident lack of concern for other human beings. Perhaps QFS will investigate this further. That such people are claiming to work in the field of child abuse definitely calls for further inquiry, particularly in light of the many recent discoveries of manipulative therapists and what is called "false memory syndrome." Back to Bridges's Rebuttal:

Tom Kenyon, who is my long time girlfriend in the 80s' cousin, was approached in such a way that he had no context to place his memory of me. This is primarily what I meant by tracking down and confusing people who should remember me.

QFS Opinion and notes: We have forwarded to Dr. Kenyon Mr. Bridges remarks to "jog his memory."

And of course, they also get others to do their tracking and mud- slinging for them. Here's an example of what they've been doing and how those who actually know me have been responding:

Dear Mr. Rowland:

Regarding your email of November 23, 2001, we appreciate your concern for our reputation. However, our association with "Vincent Bridges" goes back to 1989 and during that time our relationship has rarely been anything other than amicable. We feel that Mr. Bridges is a talented writer whose wealth of knowledge on mystical, scientific subjects can only be of benefit to our readers. We are sorry that Mr. Bridges and your organization seem to be experiencing difficulties, but it's our policy to not interfere in theaffairs of those who write for us.

We sincerely hope that the two of you can come to some sort of meeting of minds and settle your differences in a civilized fashion.

Yours in Spirit,

Christine Hall Editor AlternativeApproaches.com http://www.alternativeapproaches.com

I notice that you are giving "Vincent Bridges" publicity on your site.

For your own reputation, I think you need to be made aware of the following serious allegations concerning "Vincent Bridges"' credibility: [link to QFS report]

Sincerely,

Andrew Rowland

QFS Opinion and Note: Considering the evidence we have uncovered regarding Mr. Bridges utter disregard for truth, ethics, and consideration for Free Will and the lives of other human beings who he insouciantly libels, and then laughs it off as "a joke" or "novelization" or "I forgot, it wasn't important," we find the opinion of the above named organization regarding Mr. Bridges as having a "wealth of knowledge on mystical, scientific subjects can only be of benefit to our readers," as not merely naive, but questionable. Returning to Mr. Bridges rebuttal:

OK, there's only two more points. First, the spook stories...

Since these selections were originally part of a "memoir" entitled "I Was the Devil's Probation Officer" one might suspect that a certain amount of novelization was involved. But just as L&A have no sense of humor, they also have no appreciation of the finesse. Whether they felt that those yarns were true or not, passing them along to someone like Aquino (of the Presidio Childcare Center abuse case) is simply a malicious act of revenge on their part. Of course, having the head of the Church of Satan/Temple of Set say he's never heard of you does make it a little harder to believe the accusations of satanism... One question though, who else gets such a prompt response from the self proclaimed head satanist? Nah, I must be paranoid...

QFS Opinion and notes: Mr. Bridges's teflon approach to the fact that he was claiming these stories as his background, and using them to influence the minds of 200 other people, to convince them that he was what he said he was, that he knew whereof he spoke, is not merely astonishing, it is gross negligence. Keep in mind that his objective was apparently to convince as many people as possible that they had been subjected to Satanic ritual abuse, mind control, and that Mr. Bridges was a person who had the knowledge and experience to help them. QFS finds such manipulation of other human beings by an individual professing to be a therapist, may fall under the category of "criminal intent to do harm." Back to Bridges's Rebuttal:

And of course, there is Laura's highly touted puff piece that took a Pulitzer prize winning journalist five years to write. Did you ever wonder why it took him 5 years? Reading between the lines of the published article, I would guess that it took that long for him to get away from a demanding and domineering subject who just kept upping the melodrama every time he wanted to drop the whole thing. Don't know this for sure, but it certainly would be interesting to see what Mr. French thinks of it all. Maybe he could do an update and see what Frank thinks of the whole thing now that he's no longer a part of it.

QFS Opinion and note: We forwarded these comments to Mr. French et al. The following reply was received:

hi laura

thanks for the updates. as those e-mails you sent me made clear, some
of these people are trying to contact me.

when i'm asked what i think of you and your work, i say, read the
story. if they read "the exorcist in love,' they'll find that i state
my feelings and opinions about you quite clearly, that i say, straight
out, that i don't necessarily believe everything you believe but that
i like you tremendously and found your pursuit of the big questions to
be fascinating.

as always, i hope you and ark are happy and doing well.

talk to you soon.

Again, we point out that Mr. Bridges has no track record to speak of, except evidence of manipulation of truth, "forgetting" that could be considered criminal negligence, and claims to publishing credits that are proven false, and real publishing credits that amount to little more than mediocre small-town non-events. Mr. French, on the other hand, is quite capable of explaining himself, and did so. We quote Mr. French: "If you want to know what I think about Laura, read my article. Nothing has changed." Mr. Bridges's remarks above are, so far, the clearest evidence of what is really driving him: jealousy, paranoia and vindictiveness. Back to Bridges's Rebuttal:

But of course, just to prove that it is all ego on my part and an attempt to upstage Laura, let me just say that I've had several front page articles done on me, some of them have had a much broader readership than the St. Pete Times. For example, my final two exhibits, F & G/ Stylecover and inside on the M files. Norma McLemore is also a prize-winning journalist. This piece was written at the height of my Dr. Strange/psychic emergency work and led in an indirect way to the spook story I told about sticking my hand in the axe murderer's shoe.

QFS Opinion and notes: Again, Mr. Bridges demonstrates the clear fact that has no regard for truth. St. Petersburg Times circulation is in the millions. It covers the entire Central Florida region, and is delivered as far north as Tallahassee and as far south as Miami. Mr. Bridges's "cover story," published in Triad Style, "your guide to arts, information and entertainment" is circulated as follows:

The Virginian-Pilot The Virginian-Pilot is Landmark's flagship newspaper. It serves residents of southeastern Virginia, the Eastern Shore of Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. Circulation is approximately 235,000 on Sunday; 225,000 on Saturday; and 197,000 on weekdays. The Virginian-Pilot also publishes three free-distribution newsprint magazines, Style in Richmond, Port Folio for Hampton Roads, Va. and The Island Breeze for the Outer Banks of North Carolina; The Apartment Book, a rack-distributed monthly publication in South Hampton Roads and on the Virginia Peninsula; Tidewater Parent, a monthly parenting magazine serving South Hampton Roads, Hampton Roads Employment Weekly, a weekly rack-distributed recruitment publication for South Hampton Roads and the Virginia Peninsula...

In other words, at the "height of my Dr. Strange/psychic emergency work," Mr. Bridges made it onto the cover of a local, Freebie advertising circular. Mr. Bridges closes his remarks:

Well, is enough enough yet? While I appreciate all the free publicity - sales of AMET have spiked in the last week or so - I think it is time to move on. Even though both my attorney ("Don't give the defendants any more information!") and therapist friends ("Don't engage a borderline personality, it only fuels their delusions!") have warned against it, I have chosen to respond here and in this way. Think of it as a gesture of how much I appreciate the level of this group and its openness.

Thanks for listening,

Vincent

QFS Opinion and notes: We do thank Mr. Bridges for providing ample evidence of his obvious malicious intent to defraud. It is now all a "joke," or a "novelization," and anybody who would believe him has "no sense of humor" and "no finesse." We would like to point out that this very attitude may be the secret of his inner being. He has given all fair warning.

It is our opinion that "Vincent Bridges" thinks that the majority of human beings are incredibly stupid and incapable of seeing his inconsistencies and excuses for what they are. And, though we disagree with him (we don't think most people are stupid, but we do think they are often susceptible to such manipulators), in a way he's right. He can say these things because many people do believe him. They don't question it. Many people will completely disregard the gross discrepancies in what he has written, as well as the obvious self-certification as an admitted liar, and will simply twist it into what they want to believe because Vincent Bridges can play the self-deprecating nice guy who always finishes last with unbelievable flair. That's how he makes his living. Mr. Bridges is, in our opinion, a con artist extraordinaire and a scary one, because he's not selling trumpets to people in River City; he's selling salvation. And it seems to be that he's doing it for money and for little else. We see no evidence of altruistic notions in the man. In the end, he just comes across as a materialistic creep wannabe mojo man who is willing to take advantage of humanity's need for the spiritual in order to get what he wants which probably consists of really spiritual things such as expensive cars, lots of high-level stereo equipment, more expensive black clothes, better designer drugs, etc....

Caveat Emptor!

UPDATE! As a result of these revelations, we have received several lengthy emails from individuals who have had prior dealings with Mr. Bridges. Because of the nature of the interaction, we must protect the source of the information, but we would like to share with the readers what this woman had to say, her opinion based on her experiences:

"Vincent Bridges" is a spiritual terrorist and intellectual parasite. He has played out the same pseudo-victim, pseudo-journalist/reporter game on you that he played on me. Think of him as a kind of petty dictator, who will bluff and bluster until he's cornered, at which time he will whimper and beg for mercy. This is typical junior-high school "baby-bully" behavior, and it's also typical of a person who has been abused as a child. My solution to this lunacy is: document, document, document everything. Create an audit trail of all correspondence and all interactions.

Do not write emails to him as he just reworks the email later to say what he wants it to say.

QFS opinion, note: It seems that it is not even necessary to write an email to someone to have one falsified and sent as you. See this: Correspondence with E. Parker.

What he's claiming you are doing is, unfortunately, likely to be what he's doing (or has done). It's a standard tactic of his gang to paint their opponents with their own ill behavior. That confuses naive newcomers. And, it works.

Clearly, Mr. Bridges was abused as a child. That's pretty terrible. So, expect the actions and reactions of the "child of an alcoholic", for example. I'm not suggesting that that was the problem, but rather that the behavior would be typical -- and worse if the abuse were sexual, or sexual also. That would explain his obsession with sexual abuse.

Yes, there's definitely sex games involved in the Bridges agenda. If you can stomach it, and can find some of their older writings, you'll find advocacy for tantric sex magic for children. These guys just love to play games like this, because it feeds their ego. So I wouldn't be at all surprised if they're preying on people with sexual abuse problems. It's their stock in trade.

"Vincent Bridges" and his gang are all self-proclaimed geniuses who confabulate everything. They make it all up. If someone is running them, they're the dupes, because they're too stupid and/or too vain to know they're being run. You have to see them in their magickal operations to get the pseudo-satanist mindset that they're into. It's all a phoney. It's all delusions of grandeur, wannabeism, and self-promotion. The way they think, it doesn't matter whether they con the good guys by being bad guys, or con the bad guys by making believe they're good guys. Whatever sells. It's more a personal power game than anything official. They're even phoney satanists. Now, there's a distinction not worth the difference.

As noted, we will continually update these pages.
