In the 1960′s, a man named Clairvius Narcisse staggered from the jungles in Haiti announcing that he had been turned into a living zombie for years through the combination of various drugs that can be found in that country.
Wikipedia continues: The Canadian ethnobotanist Wade Davis, who did the research on tetrodotoxin explains how this [induced a coma mimicking the appearance of death] would have been done. The bokor (sorcerer) would have given Narcisse a powder containing the tetrodotoxin through abraded skin. Narcisse fell into a comatose state, closely resembling death, which resulted in his live burial. His body was then recovered and he was given doses of Datura stramonium [colloquially called the "zombie cucumber"] to create a compliant zombie-like state and set to work on a plantation. After two years, the plantation owner died and Narcisse simply walked away to freedom.
Davis’s research has been controversial, and has even spawned a movie called The Serpent and the Rainbow. We have reported about Datura stramonium in past articles, but this is where it gets a whole lot closer to home.
Also in the late 1960′s 6,249 sheep died in Skull Valley, Utah. Much speculation was abound, but one fact stood out. Skull Valley is only 30 miles from the US Army facility Dugway Proving Grounds, who’s mission is to test and implement US and Allied biological and chemical weapons. You can read all about this base on its Wikipedia page HERE. Post mortem testing concluded that the sheep died or were disabled by a nerve agent being tested on the base codenamed VX. While not admitting liability, the US Army did pay the ranchers for their losses.
Flash forward to 2011. The US Army facility Dugway Proving Grounds, located approximately 85 miles (140 km) southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah locks down in response to the temporary loss of a vial containing the VX nerve agent! While it is eventually recovered, it did put VX and the Dugway Proving Grounds on the map. And here is where it gets really interesting.
From Dugway Proving Grounds Wikipedia Page: … reports of certain nerve agents such as tetrodotoxin, and datura stramonium, have been tested at this military base [Dugway Proving Ground]. The complete nerve agent was code-named “VX”—one of a series of “V” nerve agents tested at the base.
A nerve agent that contains the exact active ingredients as the Haitian “zombie powder” formula.
Let’s throw more fuel on the fire.
You can view the following images yourself through Google Satellite Maps of a specific location in the Dugway Proving Grounds. Point Google Satellite Maps to: 40.199076,-113.177008 (just copy this into the Search function, and you can see it yourself. These are Longitude and Latitude coordinates). If we let our imagination run away with us, we can imagine this some sort of containment structure. But what is it meant to contain? Let us know what you think!
