The transformation of Mr.Icke was interesting to say the least. My memory is very shaky on the subject but here's what I recall.
First he disappeared overseas to "discover himself" and returned with what appeared to be a very nice menage a trois with wife plus new female
"assistant/disciple" (whatever happened to her). It was around this time that he also went through his purple (or was it turquoise) phase,
appearing everywhere in an appropriately coloured tracksuit claiming the colour gave him some kind of energy. Then we had the "Son of God" deal
that now seems to have been conveniently explained away as him meaning that he, like all of us, is a son of god, which just sounds like so much spin
to me. Then finally the great conspiracy theories began to spout forth. He started out with Church Halls, and worked his way up to conference sized
presentations and finally discovered that great untapped resource of easily influenced paranoia and wealth - the USA.
So there you have it, wealth and public acceptance would appear to be a relatively effective cure for paranoid schizophrenia. Believe it or not, I'm
happy for him, I certainly bear him no malice - but I think it's a pity that so many people appear to have been caught up in his delusions.
