It is interesting to note that Hope Troxell, the founder of the "School of Thought" (later incorporated as the church of cosmic origin), claimed to "receive" messages from interdimensional "extraterrestrial" beings, much as many contemporary mediums or "channels" claim today.

Hope was purportedly instructed by these beings to move from Pasadena to the Eastern Sierra: she spent some time in Independence (at the historic Winnedumah Hotel), before finally locating in June Lake, which was said to be one of the seven "vortices," or chakras, of the earth. During those times there actually were a number of 'ufo sightings," which you can find documented in local newspapers (The Mono Herald of Bridgeport, predecessor to the Mammoth Times).

Hope's followers would gather around her and transcribe her "recieved" messages, and those transcripts are still in existence. As related in the original post, Jack Bing was not actually a member of the school (or church). His Grandfather was Chris Petersen, who was the original developer of one of the real estate tracts in the June Lake Loop. Jack is alive and well, currently living in Reno.

With the current interest in the Mayan Calendar and the dawn of conscious co-creation, it is fascinating that nearly forty years later, many now share a similar spiritual belief system to that of Hope Troxell.

Thanks for the great information and Sam Alfieri, Hope's best friend, is still living at J-Diamond trailer park in Bishop. He may still have those tapes. I posted the story on him back on page 2.

Some people may think I am full of it about this UFO thing in June Lake, but there is a long history behind it, and Hope did not seek to go there for no reason.

Scotty, no sightings of flying "V' formations...but I do have this sighting

Jack Casady playing a flying "V" bass......

Now the question is, who made that bad boy?
(love all the floor switches for more amplitude modulation,polytonal additives and reverb. Kind of old school by todays standards)

It doesn't matter if you saw them, because they saw you.

Not only did they know you were a visitor, but they know what you think. So be sure to think good thoughts and smile more often. Hope you have enjoyed your time in the ES. Come back soon.
