Author: Nino Roso LIFE AND WORKS OF T. D. A LINGO A beautifully photographed historical narrative of a Great Genius
T. D. Lingo’s Story "My story unfolds with me as a spearhead infantry scout for General Patton's army in World War II. The war was horrible on the front lines. My group was one of the first to arrive at Hitler's death camps to liberate the remaining survivors. After I got back home to the U. S. I went to the University of Chicago, and earned my bachelor and masters degrees in behavioral science, and almost completed my Ph. D. My experiences during the war drove me to ask but one question: "Why must I kill my brother? " To this, my school and professors had no answer. But one professor's advice was "If there is an answer to this question, it's up here, " pointing to his own gray head. "The answer has got to be in the human brain, but the research hasn't yet been done in academe. You're going to have to build your own research center if you are going to solve that riddle. "
Photo: Letter head of Lingo’s LP from 50’s * * * "So, I dropped out of my Ph. D. program and started to figure out how to put my own research facility together. I didn't have any money, but I could tell a good story! So, I figured, if there was a fortune to be made in a hurry, maybe I could do it in show business. . . Turns out I was right. . . I bought this mountain and built this place with a guitar, three chords, and nine folk songs. "
"I started out playing the local joints around Denver, and eventually I landed a spot on Groucho Marx's You Bet Your Life TV show in Hollywood. I wore these old buckskins and I played the part of a backwoods mountain man to perfection. It was during that appearance that a New York producer spotted me. He must have said "I know a good phony when I see one, and that son of a bitch is a great one!" They flew me out to New York City and signed me to do a summer replacement show on NBC. My show was a weekly one where the "new" fad of folk singing (in the late 50's) was featured. People like Burl Ives and Woody Guthrie showed up as guests, and performed with me. What a time we had. . . and I got paid $2000 an hour to do it!
On the last show, I looked straight into the camera and asked the million viewers who were watching, "If anybody out there has a mountain to sell, call me. " And sure enough, somebody called me up right from Colorado. At the end of the summer, I took my money, two grocery sacks full, and ran! I gave one to the IRS and I bought this place, Laughing Coyote Mountain, with the other. I started to axe timber and build log cabin labs. That was in 1957. No sterile formaldehyde bleak lab walls for me. . . give me fresh air and the beautiful sounds of the forest to think clearly!"
"For the next 30 years I dedicated myself totally to exploring behavior from the perspective of the human brain. My staff and I looked at every available bit of scientific research and philosophic/religious literature on the subject. We ran our own short and long term experiments with 309 test subjects. Now, up here, this environment of rugged mountain wilderness provides a total focus into the self that never can be replicated in any city, with all the noise and distractions. Up here, there's no electricity, no TV, or movies, no four lane highways to get away from it all. You ARE away from it all!
Up here, you face yourself, your mind, and your brain. The brain lab still doesn't have electrical power lines, or even running water. It's just you, the hand water pump, a wood stove, and your central nervous system. Our lab's records grew voluminous. These log structures were crammed full of file cabinets. The books line the walls from the stone floors to the ceiling rafters, 18 feet up. In the end, we discovered the mechanisms to release startling new intelligence, creativity, and pleasure, inside each and every human brain. And all our findings are supported and corroborated with foundation findings by scientists elsewhere. "

Lingo is Talking about the Size, Circa 1974
(The Multiple Orgasms -Component) A Quote from Westword Newspapper: The year before, Dumas--and through him, Westword readers--had made the acquaintance of a man who didn't need much companionship. Brain researcher T. D. Lingo could take care of himself: Some night in the mountains around Blackhawk, you might hear a terrible sound. It is a huge, hoarse bellow that builds to an ear-shattering crescendo, then tapers off to a whimper: rrr. AWWWWWrrrr. This tortured noise will echo over and over for an hour or more. But do not be afraid. It is not a wild beast or some terrible mutant caused by radiation from Rocky Flats. It is just T. D. Lingo having 250 orgasms. Here is a man who says we can learn to use all that dormant grey matter sitting inside our heads, in the process undergoing a physical metamorphosis that allows men and women of all ages to experience up to 250 orgasms every time they engage in sex. . .
(‘Clicking’ the Amygdala -Component) This phrase is coined by T. D. A. Lingo and it refers to either automatic (reactive non-deliberate) or conscious deliberate activation of amygdaloid body processes (by cortex influence). The power to click is a simple gift from life. The clicking is a simple shunting of incoming neutral-valenced cosmic consciousness backward into old rootstern. or forward into frontal lobes, as needed; as self-chosen. The purpose of choosing to master the skill of brain self-control is to choose each moment's state of consciousness--- state of ego; is to maximize your primary creative production--- pre-conscious production--- of work for mankind and humankind; is to help perfect planet Earth via educating child to whole brain harmony; is to understand flow with cosmic unity.
Once you have made the conscious intellectual decision to step beyond Aristotelian scientific categories separating all things and all time, your brain automatically starts re-matrixing past fixed neurons back into child cognitive fix: that which perceives unity between self, life, time. But now matured. Egoless. Once you have experienced the overwhelmingly powerful beatitude of natural cosmic unity, you can duplicate it again. In time, you will develop the skill of programming your self/environment to flow into cosmic unity at will. For the grim economic/politic reality of today forbids you to stay there perpetually. The ultimate paradox of consciousness expansion in America is that survival of the fittest naturally selects those who can control brain through both competitive consciousness as well as cooperative consciousness; who can click backward into selfdefensive ego when fighting for survival against fools and evils as well as click forward into natureflow/Taoflow Egolessness when sharing love with soulmates. Homo Novus.
~ Cosmic Dirt ~ Neil Slade often claims to be acting in behalf of the Lingo estate. In all fairness, we should look at then entire chain of events that transpired upon Lingo's death. To begin with Neil Slade was one of the first individuals to find out about the death of TD. Upon hearing of Lingo's death, Neal took it upon himself to go to the property of Lingo and take at least 2 known items. . . a 1940's Martin guitar, and a preserved brain. A 1940's Gibson banjo was also taken, and is in the possession of one Harmony Asning Stang. It took the Lingo's family members several days to arrive from San Francisco, and other individual arrived on the property the weekend following Lingo's estate.
One individual who was familiar with the property inventory found that almost everything of value had gone missing. This included, but was not limited to: 3 chain saws, WWII medals and uniforms that were TD's, a Nazi flag and luger, a Winchester 30 -06, numerous tools, post hole digger, etc. The whereabouts of these items are still unknown. If Slade states that he is acting in behalf of the Lingo Estate, then he should be able to produce legal documents stating such. To date none of these documents have ever been presented, most likely because they do not exist. Consequently, it would be safe to say that Slade does not represent the Estate of Lingo. The family of Lingo had a very negative perception of Slade. The accused Slade of: 1) supplying TD with copious amounts of Vodka, which one family member swears lead to the death of Lingo. It should be noted that Lingo had a congenital heart disease and no correlation between Lingo's vodka consumption and deal was ever made. 2) the family was steep in religion, and was deeply offended when they found statements in Lingo's journal that Slade had provided Lingo with very young women, women that Lingo had sex with. Given these 2 perceptions of Slade by the family, then it seems highly unlikely that they would put Slade in charge of any intellectual or real property of TD Lingo. All that Neal Slade needs to do to clear this matter is present the legal documentation.
One only has to go to the Slade website to see that Slade has assumed the duty of being Lingo's protégée. Slade likes to post letters that Lingo wrote him. Letters where Lingo showers Slade with praise and all kinds of accolades. Slade also states that Lingo wanted him to "inherit" all of Lingo's real property. This, according to Slade, was made in front of several witnesses. But, unfortunately is inadmissible in court. To add credibility to his own self-worth, Slade likes to belittle others. This belittling includes posting for public perusal personal letters between Lingo and other individuals. Besides being unethical, one has to question why a "successful" person like Slade would resort to such tactics? Does it matter to Slade's work what Lingo said about someone 20 -30 years ago? Heck, I had a girlfriend in 1985. So what? It is time to move on, but for some reason Slade feels that he must air his dirty laundry in public. Any program that is valid, will stand on its own merits and the capitalist marketplace will ultimately determine the acceptance of such. But the real question to be addressed is: "Does Slade properly represent the work of TD Lingo? "
Ultimately, if Slade's program is truly a representation of Lingo's work then it should have: a primal nature component, it should teach self-therapy, and it should emphasize community service. To just grab a marketing gimmick like "amydala clicking" or "multiple orgasms" and run with it, is to avoid the ultimate goal of TD Lingo. That goal was to help the individual attain full emotional maturation in order to save planet earth. You mature by doing your therapy within primal nature, and you help save the planet by helping others and working for the good of others and the planet. Words are just words, but the actions of any man or woman can tell us all that we need to know to determine if the individual is truly sincere in helping the planet survive. . . and this is what Lingo wanted.
