In a recent article from Australia, https://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/true-stories/i-survived-a-suicide-cult-heavens-gate-survivors-break-their-silence/news-story/5da1aea20006bc9916eee738bd788125, TELAH is once again described as “two survivors” of Heaven’s Gate. The TELAH reps state that they “supply tapes and the book and take care of getting information of the Next Level out to various universities, newsagencies and documentary sources that inquire”. What they fail to mention yet again is that they tried to prevent RKK and I from distributing the CD-ROMs with some of the HG audio tapes on them to Universities. Mark King threatened Rob Balch of the University of Montana with some kind of legal action if he didn’t give him the CD-ROM that RKK and I sent to Professor Balch. What they again fail to mention is that RKK was given the masters to the Exit videos with instructions to distribute them. They fail to mention that RKK was sent the disks with the Final Press Release and Exit Statements by Students with instructions to upload them to hg.com. They fail to mention that JHNODY was sent the masters to the Beyond Human series or that OSC was asked to register the HG Book with the Library of Congress. They fail to mention giving all of their correspondence from the class and the keys to the storage lockers to RKK and that RKK and OSC retrieved the audio tapes from storage. Mark King fails to mention that he begged RKK for the tapes and promised RKK to make the tapes available. To this day the Kings have not presented ANYTHING from the class to back up any of their claims. I’ve put the class’ letters to RKK and TELAH and others online, TELAH has only made claim after claim while offering not one shred of documentation from the class.
Sawyer has recently started to play some of the audio tapes on his livestreams and of course needs to follow up playing them with his never-ending commentary. He is now stating that it is his “pleasure” to make the “direct teachings freely available”. I don’t listen to most of the broadcast but as far as I can tell he doesn’t acknowledge that this information has been “freely available” for over twenty years, far longer than the self-appointed “mission” and “task” for Ti and Do that he has been doing. He has spent some fifteen years promoting his blogtalk radio, his blog, his book and his youtube channel and now he seems to want to take credit for making Ti and Do’s “direct teachings freely available”.
Sawyer did not retrieve these tapes from storage, OSC and RKK did. Sawyer did not spend one second on copying, encoding or distributing these tapes and in fact he tried to fault RKK for giving the tapes to Mark when Mark promised RKK that they’d be made available. Now after almost fifteen years of saying what he has to say about Ti, Do and the Class Sawyer is going to kiss his own butt for what a “pleasure” it is to make the “direct teachings of Ti and Do freely available”?! They’ve been “freely available” in CD-ROM form for twenty-two years and on a file sharing site since before Sawyer declared to the world that he had a “task” to do “for Ti and Do”. In one of the comments on his channel Sawyer discusses how some of the information was “new” to him because he was not at the meeting. This is the same guy who repeatedly claimed that we “have all the information we need” in regards to what the Class left behind.
Sawyer would make this statement when I would point out that the majority of the audio tape collection is being suppressed. Based on his actions Sawyer did not think that the information on the suppressed audio tapes is something that “we need” but all of the information on his personal blog, youtube channel and in his book is information that we need. Now he’s admitting that there is information that is “new” to him and I’ve been pointing out for years that there were numerous audio tapes that were made after Sawyer left the class.
Where is the respect for what OSC and RKK did to preserve this information? If it wasn’t for what RKK did Sawyer wouldn’t have any tapes to make “freely available” but instead of showing RKK any respect Sawyer went out of his way to let me know that “if he were RKK” he would have made a better choice in regards to the audio tapes. And as I’ve already pointed out RKK asked for Sawyer’s help back in 1997 and Sawyer declined. Why did Sawyer decide that after fifteen years of being unable to shut up about his “19 years of fully dedicated service” and how “brave” and “courageous” he thinks he is for standing up for Ti and Do that it is now his “pleasure” to make the “direct teachings of Ti and Do freely available”?
From my perspective TELAH and Sawyer are most interested in praising themselves. Since RKK left no former members of HG have offered any help in distributing the class’ information. TELAH has actively tried to prevent anyone but themselves from distributing the Class’ information by copyrighting all of the materials. Sawyer now wants to take credit for making information “freely available” that has been freely available for many, many years. Look at the volume of what Sawyer has put on the Internet and the vast majority of it is things that came from him, not from Ti and Do. Why would he not draw attention to the file sharing site where I uploaded the available tapes or the CD-ROMs that are still available for free? Perhaps it’s because of his personal issues with me and that he wants to take credit for making the information available? Really look at what Sawyer has done for the past fifteen years. Was his priority ever distributing the “direct teachings of Ti and Do” or has it always been to have his say about said teachings? He can’t even let these audio tapes stand on their own without adding his personal commentary to them.
Let’s all show a little more respect to OSC and RKK for retrieving these tapes and all that RKK did to make them available.
