Episode 4 Jiddu and The Sleeper

Episode Four Jiddu and The Sleeper

These recordings are getting stranger and stranger. This week’s reel contains the shortest recording so far. Although these reels can hold up to two hours of information this specific tape has only about eight minutes of recorded sounds. This content starts after about 15 minutes of silence and seems to speed straight into, what I believe, is a recording of the Indian philosopher, author and speaker Jiddu Krishnamurti. The recording level of this portion is so distorted it took me repeated playings to figure out what was being said; I assume, and do not fault, most of the people who will skip over this part although it’s only two minutes long. Then there is an abrupt cut into what seems to be a woman talking to someone who is sleeping. It’s weird… real weird… and it ends in a somewhat terrifying manner and it comes out of nowhere so quickly that upon my first listening I dumped my coffee on myself. The remaining fifteen minutes of the reel are void of any other recordings.
Again, I have no idea what this is, but it’s pretty strange. Key times in this podcast are as follows. If you want to skip over the Krishnamurti lecture then go to 7 minutes, 13 seconds.  If you want to prepare for the ending of the recording start preparing for the sudden increase of volume at 12 minutes, 46 seconds.
