Conversations in Cosmology Michael Grosso #88

Philosopher Michael Grosso PhD. author of The Final Choice: Death or Transcendence

On May 28, 2019, Fahrusha welcomed philosopher Michael Grosso, PhD. to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to have a conversation about cosmology and his updated book, The Final Choice: Death or Transcendence. Michael is very involved with the primacy of consciousness over reductive materialism. He came into this point of view through his experiences with the epi-phenomena of psychic functioning.

Dr. Grosso explains how through the study of psychic functioning one is brought to the understanding that consciousness is fundamental. He gives examples in near-death experiences, Goddess manifestations, UFOs, psychokinesis and dreams. Amazingly, Michael predicted the shooting and survival of President Ronald Reagan through a dream.

Michael Grosso, Ph.D. is an independent scholar and part of an ever growing group of scholars and thinkers critical of the prevailing materialistic view of the world. He has taught humanities and philosophy at Marymount Manhattan College, City University of New York, and City University of New Jersey. Among his other books are The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation, Experiencing the Next World Now, The Millennium Myth: Love and Death at the End of Time, Soulmaking: Uncommon Paths to Self-Understanding and Frontiers of the Soul. He is co-author of a number of books, most prominently Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century.


Consciousness Unbound is Michael Grosso’s very interesting blog. He has been our guest twice before.

Fahrusha (red-faced), who has enjoyed visiting Charlottesville more than a dozen times, apologizes for renaming the city Charlottesburg.

On May 14, 2019, Fahrusha was very pleased to welcome physicist Russell Targ and filmmaker Lance Mungia to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to discuss their film Third Eye Spies. The film chronicles the story of the government’s remote viewing program with emphasis on viewer Pat Price and the role of physicists Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff. Many accounts of events in and around the movie were discussed that were absolutely fascinating. Many of the people discussed in the film are still in the forefront of psi research today while others remain totally anonymous as would befit psychic spies. What actually happened to the amazing Pat Price is still something of a mystery, since there a number of conflicting narratives regarding his death. The film is available for sale through the website, and on rental and download from Amazon, iTunes, and other vendors.

Russ kindly gave a number of pointers to those, like listener Earl, who would like to try remote viewing on their own. Russ Targ has been a very popular previous guest on this show.

Physicist Russell Targ

Sad note: Yesterday, (May 13, 2019) the world of ufology lost a legend, nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman. Rest In Peace. He was a very approachable and friendly man whose contribution to the study of anomalous aerial phenomena was huge. I feel privileged to have met him and spoken to him several times.

Errata: This is the 87th “Shattered Reality Podcast” not the 89th.
