The headlines over the last few days has seen a man named Philip Garrido arrested for allegedly kidnapping a child, Jaycee Lee Dugard, 19 years ago and fathering her first child when she was only 14 years old.
Garrido kept a blogspot blog under the user name THEMANWHOSPOKEWITHHISMIND, and surprisingly enough, after the masses of comments instructing him to die, it’s still up. The blog is filled with mumbo jumbo and unless you enjoy crime TV shows, you’ll probably not want to even bother reading it. What is does provide however is a fascinating yet disturbing insight into the mind of a complete lunatic.
What’s abundantly clear is this man is sick. He’s a devout Christian, but a very disturbed one who seemingly believes he has special powers that enabled angels to pass the messages of God to him.
The blog contains a number of mind boggling statements, one in particular describes an electronic invention he wanted to patent that allowed him to control sound using his mental powers:
“This document is to affirm that I Phillip Garrido have clearly demonstrated the ability to control sound with my mind and have developed a device for others to witness this phenomena. by using a sound generator to provide the sound, and a headphone amplification system, ( a device to focuc your hearing so as to increase the sensitivity of what one is listening to) I have produced a set of voices by effectively controlling the sound to pronounce words through my own mental powers.”
His brother told the press today that Garrido did a lot of LSD when younger. You don’t say.
