On June 26, 2018 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha enjoyed welcoming back Irena Scott, PhD, to “Shattered Reality Podcast” for our seventy-first show. Dr. Scott has written five books and the latest one, Inside the Lightning Ball: Scientific Study of Lifelong UFO Experiences, is autobiographical in that it concerns her own paranormal experiences regarding UFOs, orbs and ball lightning. She wanted to be very clear that when critics and debunkers say that scientists do not see UFOs the critics are misinformed. In the book, she also elucidates why she thinks some people are multiple experiencers.
Irena Scott started having UFO experiences as a young child in a rural farm-house when an unknown glowing metallic object flew around the attic bedroom she shared with her sister. Her sister, mother and cousin corroborated the report. She had a bizarre lightning experience in Texas, where she also witnessed what was probably the famous Marfa lights. She had many UFO sightings in Ohio while working for the DIA. She recounted for us a second sighting she had while driving near Boston with her sister. Again her sister backed up the report.
I believe that Dr. Scott is doing a great service by revealing her sightings and experiences. The more credible folks that do this, the less likely experiencers will be ridiculed and maligned because of these events. No longer will scientists fear the loss of their hard-won professional positions. I especially like that she does not speculate overly much on what these phenomena might be. She is confident to say “I don’t know .” when appropriate. For instance, sometimes orbs seem to be related to electrical storms while at other times they seem more related to UFOs or even nature spirits. There is a need for these phenomena to be studied with an open mind by those that haven’t come to a premature conclusion.
Fahrusha was very happy to welcome David Booher, author of No Return, The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation?to Shattered Reality Podcast. Booher has penned an exceptionally well written and well researched book on the extraordinary experiences of an Army soldier in 1959. Before David Booher did his research, everyone in the ufological community thought that Gerry Irwin had completely disappeared. Booher found Irwin, alive and reasonably well in his native Idaho.
While on leave from Fort Bliss in 1959, Gerry Irwin saw an unidentified falling object in Utah during his drive toward his army base in Texas. Thinking it was a plane in the process of crashing he left his car by the side of the road and headed into the bush to help. He was found by a local sheriff face down in the February snow. He subsequently suffered from extreme amnesia and went AWOL on two occasions. Those are the bare bones of the story as described in 1962 by Jim and Coral Lorenzen of APRO (Aerial Phenomena Research Organization). We discussed some of the many details the author was able to ferret out.
In our Listeners Corner, June Ponte, an artist and intuitive from New Jersey, tells us of two UFO sightings she experienced in the Garden State. Co-incidentally Gerry Irwin had been a Nike missile technologist at the time of his initial experience and June Ponte had been protesting nuclear power directly before one of her sightings.
On November 1, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Claude Swanson to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. He discusses a number of fascinating phenomena that are not explainable by Western physics and posits an alternative theory of subtle energy and torsion which encompasses his take on the physics of consciousness.
We discuss many topics including time travel, remote viewing, UFOs, psychokinesis, out-of-body experiences and more; all in the context of a different picture of physics. We could have talked to Dr. Swanson for two days straight and still have more topics to cover. Dr. Swanson’s books are The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal and Life Force: The Scientific Basis. He is writing a third volume centering on the physics of the soul and the afterlife. His website is http://synchronizeduniverse.com.
Dr. Swanson grew up in Virginia. He studied physics at M.I.T. and went on to get his Ph.D. at Princeton, working with Nobel Laureate Robert Dicke. He did post-graduate work at both Princeton and Cornell. Later he formed his own consulting firm and worked on applied physics projects for a number of corporate and government entities.
On January 10, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed mathematician and aerospace engineer, Robert Schroeder, who wrote a book about the physics of UFO propulsion called Solving The UFO Enigma: How Modern Physics is Revealing the Technology of UFOs. In this episode we speak with Bob about some of his psychic experiences and about how he thinks the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland may help to prove his interesting theories about the physics of UFOs, other dimensions and other Universes. .
