Gerald Heard was a British MI6 agent and propaganda writer. He was a member of the Society for Psychical Research with Cecil puppets Arthur Balfour, Henri Bergson (brother of Moina Mathers of Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn), worked for the BBC and from 1929 published The Realist with writings of Julian and Aldous Huxley, HG Wells (MI6, Fabian Society), Harold Laski (Frankfurt School, Fabian Society), Arnold Bennett (HOGD with Crowley), Rebecca West (The New Republic) and marxist/Darwinist JBS Haldane.

The Realist was founded by George Catlin (Cornell, Fabian Society, Pilgrims Society) and AG Church (Nature magazine, the Science Church).

He was educated at the University of Cambridge. He was an assistant of Horrace Plunkett of the Irish cooperative movement (related to jesuit Joseph Plunkett who instigated the Easter Rising). He was a member of the Engineers Study Group with Naomi Mitchison (sister of JBS Haldane), wich studied group dynamics and computer science.

He set up the HG Wells Society with Sylvia Plankhurst (friend of Austin Osman Spare, daughter of Emmeline Plankhurst who founded the Independant Labour Party) and Eden Paul (communist, advocate of eugenics).

He helped founding the Peace Pledge Union with Bertrand Russell, Donald Soper (LSE), George Lansbury (grandfather of Angela Lansbury), Vera Brittain (married to George Catlin of The Realist), CEM Joad (Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists) and Aldous Huxley.

In 1937 he worked with Aldous Huxley, who had moved to Hollywood, Christopher Isherwood and Jiddu Krishnamurti of the Theosophical Society of Helena Blavatsky. They developed techniques based on yoga and Vedanta. Isherwood translated the Bhagavad Ghita with Swami Prabhavanda (Vedanta Society of Southern California in Hollywood).

In 1942 he founded Trabuco College with Huxley, a retreat center that later became the inspiration for the Esalen Institute and the Lama Foundation of Richard Alpert.

Heard was the mentor of Henry Luce (Order of Malta, S&B, Pilgrims Society, promoted magic mushrooms in Time Magazine in the 50's and participated in the JFK ritual with publishing the Zapruder film) and Bill Wilson. Bill Wilson founded Alcoholics Anonymous with Dorothy Brando, mother of Marlon Brando, with a 12 step program based on the Spiritual Exercises of the jesuits (tradition of confession in the Christian doctrine) and the Moral Re-Armament movement.

Huxley met with Laurel Canyon resident Moyna Macgill and her daughter Angela Lansbury (The Manchurian Candidate).

Heard did LSD experiments with Bill Wilson and Betty Eisner (Stanford) and worked with LSD researcher Humpfrey Osmond and Huston Smith who did LSD research with Timothy Leary. He gave LSD to director John Huston and Steve Allen (NBC show The Tonight Show).
