How To Get 2Pac Euphanasia Part IV: (Origins of Where Tupac Read How To Fake His Death)

A lot of false information regarding Machiavelli and a reference to “Faking his death” has littered the web since Tupac’s death, starting on make-shift websites like GeoCities in the late 90’s.  This isn’t true, as we demonstrated in Part I, Machiavelli only made a statement that a prince must use deception to achieve great things, there’s no evidence that he said to ‘fake your death’.  What has been overlooked by sleuths and researchers for years is a simple connection.

What is the connection of Holy Scriptures to Tupac’s death?  What book/author did Tupac REALLY read and find-out about “faking one’s death’?  These questions are explored and answered in Part IV.   Part IV is only avilable through a Donation of $2 or more through PayPal, PayHip, or join our Patreon page

Our research takes time and intense effort; we will be releasing a book for sale and creating an investigative series on this case… but until then — all articles other than Part I, II, and III will be avilable only through a donation.

Jim Morrison

TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK

Jim Morrison

Jim-Morrison-the-doors-29018208-1920-1200.00_00_00_00.Still001

Born December 8, 1943
Melbourne, Florida, U.S.
Died July 3, 1971 (aged 27)
Paris, France

Jim Morrison was an American poet, mystic, Rock n Roll vocalist, and hippie who transformed the 1960’s and 70’s subculture by introducing a psychedelic atmosphere to a genre overwhelmed with pop rock bands at the time.  He attended UCLA Film school in 1964-1965; in the summer of ’65 he formed The Doors with fellow UCLA student Ray Manzarek (Keyboard Bassist), Guitarist Robby Krieger and Drummer John Densmore joined soon after. 

The Doors name derives from Aldous Huxley’s book “The Doors of Perception” a psychedelic experience induced by drug-use.  Jim Morrison as known for his controversial antics on stage and he entered a stage of mysticism towards the later years of his life. 

DoorsofPerception

Poetic and yet violent in his inner emotions of a self-claimed “Revolution” Morrison took the persona “Lizard King” and mentioned instances of Native American Shamanism in his poetry.  In an interview on a car wreck of dead Native Americans he witnessed while on a road trip with his parents, Morrison said –

The reaction I get now thinking about it, looking back—is that the souls of the ghosts of those dead Indians… maybe one or two of ’em… were just running around freaking out, and just leaped into my soul. And they’re still in there.”

Jim Morrison died at the age of 27 while in Paris, and the theories regarding his death have lived on.  Jim Morrison is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.

Makaveli The Mystic Part 3: (Reincarnation; Tupac’s only fear of death)

36763508_1225058664303740_4317479195283292160_n

Want exclusive Tupac articles, videos, and investigations?  Updated weekly on our Patreon.

In our articles, we discussed books and lyrics Tupac wrote and read and how the influence of the Tibetan Book of the Dead and mysticism was present within his work.  Reincarnation is another topic that pops up in numerous Tupac songs.  Out of all of Tupac’s quotes “My Only Fear of Death is Coming Back Reincarnated” is used the most in his music and symbolized the most in Tupac’s life.  Reincarnation is a concept that a being’s soul can be reborn into a new realm or physical body.  It’s popular within Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism; it can also be found in the works of Plato and Socrates.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead” is what more than likely influenced Tupac’s belief in “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” as it deals with life-after-death scenario and how we perceive this experience.  The line was first used by Evil Mind Gangstas on their 1993 song “Livin On The Edge” and also featured on the OG recording “Reincarnation” along with Hussein Fatal and other Outlawz members.  The quote gained mainstream status with the release of “Only Fear of Death” on the 1997 album “R U Still Down? (Remember Me)”.  The three Bardo realms of the afterlife are “Bardo of Death,” “Bardo of reality,” and, the “Bardo of rebirth.”

Reincarnation (OG)

My only fear of death is reincarnation
I use my last breath, to reach the whole nation
How can they call me murderer for my spoken words?
This composition be my prophecy I hope it’s heard

Tupac’s original recording of the song “Reincarnation” is not only a prophecy of his death but also a personal testament regarding reincarnation.

 

If My Enemies Love Their Kidz (OG)

My only fear of death, can you hear me, it’s comin’ back
Had enough of this bullshit world so none of that

A mellow instrumental accompanies Tupac’s warning for his enemies.

 

Under Pressure (Thug Life/1994)

Right before I die
I’ll be curseing tha law
Reincarnated bitch even worse than before
My four-four’s givin payback” 

Reincarnation slightly mentioned on the 1994 album “Thug Life”.

 

Ambitionz Az A Ridah (All Eyez On Me/1996)

My murderous lyrics
Equipped with spirits of the Thugs before me” 

Tupac studied white magic and had an ability to utilized this into his lyrics.  The semantics of Tupac’s lyrics has a force behind it.  Sorcery can be summoned to incorporate souls of another realm.

(A Treatise on White Magic by Alice Bailey)

But I’m back reincarnated, incarcerated
At the time I contemplate the way that God made it
Lace ’em with lyrics that’s legendary, musical mercenary

Tupac’s image and self-identity were reincarnated on the album “All Eyez On Me” as he entered the realm of mysticism.  At the time he was incarcerated at Clinton Correctional Facility he found a way to God’s destiny for him.

 

No More Pain (All Eyez On Me/1996)

Spit the secret to war, so cowards fear me
My only fear of death is reincarnation
Heart of a solider with a brain to teach your whole nation

319vaWLjiuL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

The secret to war and astral projection… this song that has roots in mysticism and is a homage to Method’s Man “Bring The Pain”.

 

Only Fear of Death (R U Still Down?/1997)

Hahaha, I ain’t scared to die
I ain’t scared to die
To my homies in Heaven: I ain’t scared to die
Do you wanna live forever? Are you scared to die?
Or will you scream when you fry?
I don’t fear death
My only fear of death is coming back, reincarnated

A whole song dedicated to the subject and an insight on Tupac’s mindstate towards the end of his life.

The Memphis Mafia Part 1: (Sonny West; The right-hand man & bodyguard of Elvis Presley

Sonny West (79) was a man who once had the pressure of the world on his shoulders with the job of protecting Rock n Roll legend Elvis Presley for sixteen years as a bodyguard.  Sonny West passed away from cancer on May 24, 2017, at his home in Nashville, Tennessee.  He had small parts in Elvis films such as (Kid Galahad) and often stood in as a stuntman for any action sequences.  Sonny West married his wife Judy in December of 1970, Judy had acting roles in TV shows such as “The Jackie Gleason Show” and “The Beverly Hillbillies”.  Sonny was even at the famous “Nixon/Elvis” meeting on December 21, 1970; this meeting was the product of Elvis’ obsession with law enforcement badges.  President Nixon issued Elvis a badge from the “Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (now known as the DEA).

Sonny left behind a legacy that is controversial within the Elvis fan base due to the book “Elvis, What Happened?”  The book gained traction because of the testimony from three former bodyguards Sonny West, his cousin Red West and Dave Hebler.  Sonny, Red, and Dave were fired in 1976 and wrote the book to “Bring Elvis back to his senses.”  The tell-all was one of the last books Elvis read, the book was published at the start of August 1977 and Elvis died August 16, 1977; statements from family members of Elvis claimed the book sent him into a depression and that he felt betrayed.  Sonny West insists the book was written with good intentions and that Elvis was in a downward spiral and had been for years.

(Sonny West with Elvis)

In 2007, Sonny West set-the-record-straight with his book “Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business” which is a personal standpoint that focuses more on the emotional aspect Elvis had on Sonny’s life.  A book signing at the vintage store “Lost In The 50’s” in North Augusta, South Carolina took place in 2007; surrounded by Elvis Gold Records, poodle skirts and Grease memorabilia, Sonny felt right-at-home.  Patrons of the signing described Sonny as “Full of stories and laughs” and “His demeanor was that of a man who carried the death of his best friend with much grief/regret but the new book was his way of making peace with what had happened with the bad publicity of “Elvis, What Happened?” 

The stories and laughs provide the good memories and Sonny West clearly loved Elvis in his own way.  Sonny felt that “Elvis, What Happened?” was his way of protecting The King when he no longer could physically as a bodyguard; the Memphis Mafia lives on.  Check out an interview with Sonny West
