Missing History

Missing history begins tangibly for the contemporary mind with ordinance # 39. Why make an ordinance for a surveyor when a legal description would suffice? The ordinance made Haley legally bound, perhaps to the point of criminal prosecution, to layout the city from a predetermined starting point. A starting point that assured no cross street would point at the shrine in the foothills.

Why, after such a meticulous job of making a legally binding ordinance, would a receipt of payment for a seriously flawed survey, a simple but large task, of the city of Santa Barbara be provided? Was it because the City knew Haley had made a deal with the Natives to layout the city with a cross street pointing at their shrine "Anapanne".? Was it because Haley was complaining of the severity of the mental distractions emerging from his deep memory because of general, conditional hypnotic instructions intended to foul his cognitive abilities and he threatened to sue? Was it because when Haley submitted his contract for the survey of the City of Santa Barbara, there was no Ordinance #39 and if the City would have allowed the Native people their only wish for the new city Haley could have done a good job laying out the CIty and been paid. The Natives would have not been so injured spiritually and the need for the mass insanity would have been less, the numbers and severity would have been less. It may not have happened at all.

The Natives knew about this "missing knowledge" of the Europeans. The Natives remember the light skinned people in their oral histories from the Celtic mound builders who occupied much of the eastern and inland areas of this continent as being "like them". After the crusades, European people developed a genetic fear of these ancient forms of hypnosis and cannot know it is something real.

There is a very old Celtic dance, "A Dance Called America" (pronounced Amerikay) that todays Celtic people recall. The Natives knew of the Ley (LAW) Lines of Europe, they had known from the mound builders of the societies of Europe perhaps a millennium before Christ.

Haleys survey was so flawed that many lawsuits erupted 25 years later as demonstrated in the "Orena vs The City" lawsuit that arose from the huge errors made in Haleys survey.

The civil index of the district court of Santa Barbara California began my search for missing court case files documenting a mass insanity in Santa Barbara in 1876.(scanned copies of the civil index) The County had hundreds of people who were exhibiting extreme behavior. The statement from the Superior Court Clerk of the County of Santa Barbara. (scanned document) shows 72 insanity actions from 1876 to 1878. With 327 total in a 53 year period. Compare that to the Declaration of George Michael Skuse. (scanned document) , 650 arrest for crimes of insanity in 2 years. Information given to me in a trance by the Medicine man says it went on, with an average of 300 per year, for at least five years. The most severe were in the first few years. Fifteen hundred court case files, 1100 or so missing. There were only two categories of cases in 1876. General cases including criminal and the cases of insanity actions which might originate with crimes. By examining the general court case files of the period it can be easily seen that the general court activity stops in 1876, except for a few survey disputes and a crime or two until nearly 1885 before it picks up its normal dense schedule. Most of the insanity actions on microfilm appear to be after 1880

The early civil index for the district court of Santa Barbara has no dates and the only references, box numbers, have been changed on the index indicating an attempt to sort the different cases to unknown criteria. The "I" section has been torn from the old leather bound ledger and it is unknown what else beginning with "I "was there. It does seem as through a significant number of pages perhaps ten or so are missing. One of those missing might have "Indian" on it.

I don't know what month it was, the Independent newspaper of 1876. (scanned copy of microfilmed paper) but it links Haley to the Natives and the thoughts of the news editors to the survey, when the insanity's began. By January 1876 it was obvious that the County was going to need economic aid so a bond measure was authorized by the supervisors (scanned copies of board minutes from 1/6/1876) to be drafted by the district attorney and presented to the California State Legislation where it finally appeared on March 13th, Leyes de California (scanned state legislation, 1876) What became of the mental hospital, its records, or where it was located is still a mystery. I feel that Salinas street was its location. Time will tell.

Laws controlling a municipalities obligations to keep court records state that court case files are to be kept for perpetuity and they can only be destroyed after being transferred to another medium for preservation.

In 1959 the insanity actions sifted from the total of insanity actions for statements identifying the ocular activities of the Native hypnotist or recollections of being in a trance while hearing instructions (voices) spoken by Indians directly to the subconscious mind were destroyed. For 80 years the sifted case files were kept separate and hidden . The hidden insanity actions were brought out and burned without being microfilmed after microfilming the rest of the old paper records in 1959 when the structure of County government changed with the supervisors move into their new building across Anapamu street. A serious violation of government code.

The impacts of missing history to our contemporary world will be seen to eventually effect all aspects of life including; family relationships, community relationships, societal responsibility, alcoholism, environmental, violent crime, crime, psychology, behavioral medicine, relationships, drug addiction, medicine, artistic inspiration, oral histories, art, film and television.
