Excerpts from seven-page letter sent to a student newspaper at the University of Wisconsin-Madison allegedly carrying the signature of Luke Helder, who was charged Tuesday in connection with the string of pipe bombs. The letter was postmarked in Omaha, Neb., on Friday.

 

Do you know why people blow themselves up to hurt others? Do you wonder why the icebergs are melting, and precious earth is heating up? Do you wonder why you are here? Do you wonder what is out there ... way out there? I remember those days of uncertainty, and I can't tell you how great it is to know, to know eternally, and to be.

Technology and complexity will NEVER satisfy your desire of avoiding suffering. ... There is more to this dilemma and I'm here to nudge you in a helpful direction.

I'm here to help you, to expose you, to inform you, to provide for you the answers where to look, so the "spiritually sleepy mass" can transform themselves from believing to knowing, to have an awareness to life, and to begin understanding.

I'm at an advantage in this society, and so is every other spiritually well-rounded person. We understand. Soon you will, too, and you, too, will be at an advantage. The advantage is knowing that that there is NO SUCH THING AS DEATH/VOID/END/NO MORE ... whatever you want to call that notion. The idea that death exists is less realistic then the existence of the tooth fairy, as an actual entity! Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, the tooth fairy, Humpty Dumpty, and death would all be categorized as fairy tales.

------

Fear of death forces you to work/conform. Work/conformity allows government to benefit/capitalize from people (fulfills government desires, not peoples). As long as greed persists, people will desire to capitalize, in turn forcing people to slave away. Understand life to eliminate greed. Accurate spiritual understanding eliminates greed.

------

I'm doing this because I care, and have hope in you people. If this doesn't work then so be it... In the end you will KNOW I was telling the truth anyway.

------

It seems killing a single famous person would get the same attention as killing numerous un-famous humans. There is less risk of being detained, associated with dismissing certain people.

------

Conforming to the boundaries, and restrictions imposed by the government only reduces the substance in your lives. When 1 percent of the nation controls 99 percent of the nation's total wealth, is it a wonder why there are control problems?

------

There is so much limitation placed on individuals in the United States that is illegal to grow marijuana?! I recommend finding proper (most beneficial/desirable) order, not excessive order. Marijuana was placed here for a reason people. You spend billions per year on drug prohibition and the only thing being accomplished is the spending of billions of dollars.

------

I'm taking very drastic measures in attempt to provide this information to you. You people have failed long enough ... can we now grow? I will die/change in the end for this, but that's OK, hahaha paradise awaits! I'm dismissing a few individuals from reality, to change all of you for the better, surely you can understand my logic."

See you all in 2011 (or sooner). Now go find your higher selves!
