Everyone agrees MJ was genius, high order thinker.

Having said that, I look for deeper messages within his later art selections.

There is a saying that, 'Perception is reality', and so it goes when viewing artwork. I stmbled upon interesting blog that offers a deeper step-by-step layer build in allegorical interpretation of The Wizard of Oz' painting.

Article may be too deep for some ppl's tastes, so end of article specifies some points of interest.

Happy reading!

Interesting. I have heard my whole life there was an occult root to both WIzard Of OZ and Alice. Honestly,where fairy tales are concerned I just like to watch them at face value,because if I think of everything else it will drive me up the wall;however,as a writer I can see how it is not far fetched to think someone would intertwine these deeper messages and meanings into their art. (J.K. Rowling did it as well).

Great article, WO...


Almost all documentation relating to the MK Ultra project and Mind Control mention the importance of the Wizard of Oz. In the 1940’s, the story was reportedly chosen by members of the US intelligence community to provide a thematic foundation for their trauma-based mind control program.



These lines really struck me.
