Without a doubt, Star Trek has been one of the most influential entertainment franchises in history. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, and others are iconic characters, recognized around the world. Oddly enough, though, through the series creator Gene Roddenberry, the starship Enterprise is linked to CIA mind control experiments, a group of “aliens” who claim to be the creators of humanity, and—believe it or nothere we go again—the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Let’s back up to World War 2. During the war, Andrija Puharich, the son of immigrants from the Balkans, attended Northwestern University outside Chicago where he earned a bachelor’s degree in philosophy in 1942 and his M.D. in 1947. Through an invitation from a well-off family friend, who’d married into the Borden dairy family, Puharich found himself in Maine in early 1948, where he established a research institute to pursue his interest in parapsychology, the Round Table Foundation of Electrobiology, usually shortened to the Round Table.
An early member of the Puharich Round Table was Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World and The Doors of Perception, a book about his experiences with mescaline (and the book that inspired rock singer Jim Morrison to name his band The Doors). Puharich financed his research with gifts from donors, one of whom was Henry Wallace, who’d been vice president under Franklin D. Roosevelt. Wallace, a 32nd degree Freemason, persuaded Roosevelt to add the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States—the pyramid and the all-seeing eye—to the dollar bill.
