About to fall, about to fall, the paraments about to fall
And fancy bangles on the wall and systems that hold us in thrall.
About to fall, about to fall, no more to screw us to the wall.
I say this to the dark cabal, the floor around you ’bout to fall.

And dance and jump with glee I see, appointed time, the people freed.
And no more death, and nature be in balance with the Cosmic Tree.
And so I sing “About to fall,” while you read writing on the wall.
And if you see then smile with me and watch it, watch it, watch it fall.

Existing for all eternities

I AM the Air of Pure Consciousness,
I AM the progeny of pure bliss.
I AM the Alpha and Omega.
I AM a beginning without end.

Born from a cosmic boredom,

I AM compassion and love eternal.
I AM the source of every thing.
I have Imagination, I think and I wonder.
And for all these reasons,
I AM

His journal entries are antecedent to your 1965 conversations, so maybe he did eventually come to conclusions.

I'll definitely be interested to read what you write. I'm also certain I do not know the full story. How does a man go from a humanistic/transpersonal psychologist focused on self-actualization and transcendent experience, talking about how everyone has peak experiences, to discussing outright eugenics murder? That's a hell of a shocking transition.

I gotta say, it's kinda disturbing to hear you say Maslow's thinking about humans was so heavily informed by the behaviour of farm yard chickens. What on Earth would make him think that he could generalize chicken behaviour in captivity to human behaviour in complex modern human environments? It is a pretty, pretty big leap...
