The Global Consciousness Project and Dr. Roger Nelson #54

Roger D. Nelson, PhD of the Global Consciousness Project and the PEAR Lab

On September 12, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Roger D. Nelson of the Global Consciousness Project to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Dr. Nelson has had a lifelong interest in the anomalies of human consciousness. He was Coordinator of Research at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research(PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University from 1980 to 2002.

The GCP or Global Consciousness Project is an international, multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists and engineers using Random Number Generators (RNGs) or Random Event Generators (REGs) to measure changes in the consciousness fields of groups of humans across the globe. At the time of this writing they have more than 15 years of random data in parallel sequences of synchronized 200-bit trials generated every second. That is truly amazing!

We discussed this and various related topics regarding what could be termed as micro-PK or small scale psychokinesis, including remote influencing. We included a couple of questions from a listener.

Please continue to send us your questions. Future guests are posted a few days ahead on our Facebook page.

At the end of the show, Fahrusha read an account from a friend of the show in England, Mr. A. who inadvertently took some photos of a mysterious noxious gas cloud descending upon an English Channel beach, Seven Sisters Cliffs, injuring walkers and sunbathers.

Fahrusha had written a blog piece featuring Dr. Nelson a few years ago which can be accessed here.

Brenda Dunne- the PEAR Lab and More #52

 

Brenda Dunne, Co-Author of Molecular Memoriesand lab manager at the PEAR Lab

On July 25th, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Brenda Dunne lab manager of the PEAR Lab (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) to Shattered Reality Podcast. Fahrusha was lucky to meet Brenda Dunne and the late Dr. Robert Jahn at the SSE Symposium at Yale in June 2017. Brenda Dunne was given the Founder’s Award this year at the Symposium.

In this episode, Brenda talks in detail about the workings of the PEAR Lab, remote viewing, REGs (Random Event Generators) and RNGs (Random Number Generators), and what it is like working for more than 40 years with Dr. Robert Jahn. She also spoke of the beginnings of the SSE. Fahrusha and Kate Valentine are both Associate Members. Much of the Lab’s work with the REGs centered around getting a statistically significant result from the machine when a person or persons concentrated on doing so, or when an unusual and emotionally affecting event occurred in the environment, locally or worldwide.

Since the closing of the PEAR Lab, Dunne and Jahn  continued their work together at the International Consciousness Research Laboratories (ICRL). The ICRL publishes books on consciousness research. Together, Jahn and Dunne have written five books together including Molecular Memories(2015), Quirks of the Quantum Mind(2012), Consciousness and the Source of Reality(2011), Filters and Reflections: Perspectives on Reality with Zachary Jones (2009), and Margins of Reality(1987).

Fahrusha spoke about a precognitive dream she had about being in New Haven directly before the SSE Symposium.

Dr. Roger Nelson who was also closely associated with the PEAR Lab has also been a guest on “Shattered Reality Podcast”.

Brenda Dunne, M.S. holds degrees in psychology and the humanities from  Mundelein College in Chicago (1976), and a M.S. in Human Development from the  University of Chicago (1979).

Dr. Phillip Davidson and EVT #49

Dr. Phillip Davidson, originator of EVT

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are pleased to welcome Dr. Phillip Davidson originator of Enhanced Visualization Technique to “Shattered Reality Podcast.” Phil started his professional life as an IT professional and spent a number of years at a high level job in Hong Kong. When he returned to the United Kingdom, he decided to retrain and earned a PhD in Psychology. He had a keen interest in the nature of consciousness and became a grief counselor. Coincidentally, like our last guest, Dr. Milton Wainwright, Phil hails from Sheffield, England. Fahrusha had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with Phil at a Monroe Institute’s Professional Division Seminar.

Over the years of being a grief counselor he noted how many individuals he interacted with were unable to move forward after the death of a loved one, particularly if the loved one was a child. Phil takes people from the waking state of consciousness to a place where they can access their unconscious. EVT is that process. Through EVT, Enhanced Visualization Technique, people are able to leave their bodies, meet their higher selves, and communicate with their departed loved ones. Loss of body image or proprioception is key to EVT. With EVT one can stay conscious during the entire experience of exploration of the unconsciousness.

Dr. Davidson specializes in using his technique with grieving people, but psychonaut explorers can greatly benefit from EVT as well. With EVT the grieving individual can learn to communicate with the departed loved one at will and without the services of a medium. We at “Shattered Reality Podcast” like the idea of this method because it appears to bridge the gap between a person’s unconscious and the One that is all individual consciousnesses. We ourselves have not sampled EVT but would certainly like to do so.

Dr. Phillip Davidson can be contacted via email at: phillip.davidson@btinternet.com

Panspermia Investigator Professor Milton Wainwright #48

Professor Milton Wainwright, Ph.D. investigator into panspermia.

On May 9, 2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were proud to present Professor Milton Wainwright, Ph.D. of Sheffield University who has done remarkable experiments concerning the theory of panspermia. Panspermia is an age old concept which had new life breathed into it by astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle and  cosmologist Chandra Wickaramasinghe. According to Wikipedia, panspermia is the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by meteoroids, asteroids, comets, planetoids, and also by spacecraft in the form of unintended contamination by microorganisms. Neopanspermia is the proposition that it is happening currently as well. This is not to be confused with panpsychism which proposes that everything in the Universe is conscious on some level.

Professor Wainwright has done some very amazing experiments discovering life forms in the upper atmosphere (25+ miles up) that are heretofore unknown on Earth and rather too heavy to have floated up from the surface. He has devised an ingenious method to prevent contamination. He and his graduate students have analyzed his findings with two types of electron microscopes and are currently hoping to find some scientists around the world to replicate his experiments. Interestingly, physicist Stephen Hawking has mentioned panspermia as the possible way that life has been spread across the Universe.

Tom Conwell and UFO Statistics #46

Tom Conwell, analyst of UFO statistics and paranormal investigator.

On April 26th 2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were proud to welcome Tom Conwell, author,  UFO statistics analyst and paranormal investigator to “Shattered Reality Podcast”.

Tom Conwell has been an Electronic Technician with the US Navy and Honeywell, Inc. for 42 years, a Honeywell Temperature Control, Fire Alarm and Security Software Specialist, Biomedical Engineer, is Fire Alarm Level II Certified, a Meteorologist and HVAC Engineering resource.  Tom has a wide-ranging expertise with a keen awareness of physics, computer and internet software and a broad knowledge of electronics and how it intersects with the paranormal world and UFO’s.

Together we had a lively discussion about his collection of UFO statistics for a broad range of states. He began researching in his home State of New York. He has taken a special interest in the number of sightings around nuclear power plants. Tom has written two books on the subject of UFOs and is working on a third. They are entitled THEY Are Here: East Coast UFOs Volume One and THEY Are Here: Central UFOs Volume Two. They are available from both Amazon and directly from Mr. Conwell with free autograph at tconwel2@nycap.rr.com.

Below is one of his maps with predominance of UFO sightings clearly illustrated for Eastern and Central USA.

Tom Butler and EVPs #45

Tom Butler, author Your Immortal Self, Exploring the Mindful Way

On February 28, 2017, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Tom Butler, expert on the EVP ( Electronic Voice Phenomena) and author of Your Immortal Self: Exploring the Mindful Way. EVP stands for Electronic Voice Phenomena. The practice of using electronics to record the voices of entities was brought to the public eye by Latvian writer and parapsychologist Konstantīns Raudive and Swedish painter and film producer Friedrich Jürgenson.

Tom and his wife Lisa Butler manage the A Trans C which stands for Association TransCommunication. The organization was started by the late Sarah Estep in 1982 as the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena (AA-EVP). Her objective was to “provide objective evidence that we survive physical death in our individual conscious state.” Tom Butler explains the basics of the EVP phenomena and links it to his understanding of human consciousness. He has two websites, http://atransc.org and http://ethericstudies.org with more information and how he can be contacted.

We got a huge surprise when we bid Tom good-bye and were wrapping up the show. Suddenly on Kate’s track only we recorded an EVP. Kate and Fahrusha and our audio engineer, Bill, were all in the same room in plain sight of one another. We were totally surprised and flummoxed. Listen to the six second clip below to hear what was recorded.

Listen to the clip HERE

We were all rather baffled. Here is what Tom had to say when we forwarded the clip to him:

“Lisa and I agree that it does sound like a voice and assuming it was not voice from the room, it fits our expectation of EVP. As we hear it, there is a “Woup” voice sound shortly followed by a gurgling sound and then the prolonged “Ohhhhh.” We like to think of EVP as communication, but knowing they are often watching in, and how people in the peanut gallery like to comment on the goings on, I would not be surprised to learn the speaker was making a choking sound and then laughing about his or her cleverness. The speaker sounds like a young person

“The thing is, we will likely never know. Many EVP are simply comments for which we have no references. Examples of such EVP can accumulate pretty fast, so except for their novelty, we usually suggest they are discarded. Else, we become overwhelmed with unanswerable questions. Your example does fit into the novelty category, as most peanut gallery comments are not as clear.

“One of the things to look for is where the utterance showed up in the equipment. We think EVP is formed in a specific process, say a transistor junction in an amplifier. We expect the place to be analog and nonlinear, as stochastic amplification is more likely in such energy environments. So, if the voice was in all headsets, look to the amplifier of the studio, but we would expect it to be upstream from the output amplifier. If the EVP made it into the recording memory, we would think it was formed somewhere in the input stage between the microphone and the memory conversion process.

“It is the formation of such voices that helps us study how the expected etheric-physical conversion is accomplished.”

Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke and the Star People #40

Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke

On November 8, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Ardy Sixkiller Clarke to Shattered Reality Podcast. She has written three books on American Indians and their experiences with Star People and Sky People. They are Encounters With Star People: Untold Stories of American Indians, Sky People: Untold Stories of Alien Encounters in Mesoamerica and More Encounters with Star People: Urban American Indians Tell Their Stories. She is also the author of twelve charming children’s’ books  and the best-selling academic text: Sisters in the Blood: The Education of Women in Native America.

It was a pleasure to speak with Dr. Clark about the many experiences she has personally chronicled through direct meetings with American Indians of many different tribes. Star People are part of the oral history of many indigenous peoples in North America and around the world. Those who are interested in ufology from a Euro-Centric point of view would be well advised to consider a slightly different perspective. It is fascinating how the actual experiences are quite similar but sometimes the experiencer’s frame of reference and cultural context molds what he or she takes away from the contact with the Star People.

Dr. Claude Swanson The Physics of Consciousness #39

Dr. Claude Swanson, author and physicist

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.

This podcast was recorded on November 1, 2016.

Russell Targ, Secrets of Remote Viewing #34

Russell Targ, renowned physicist and author, joins Kate Valentine and Fahrusha for an amazing conversation about remote viewing. This episode is a MUST listen.  Shattered Reality Podcast is honored to present this psychic pioneer and his fascinating story about his seminal work in remote viewing as a contractor for several clandestine alphabet agencies.

Targ is the author of nine books. His latest The Reality of ESP: A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities he feels is most complete, partially due to the fact that he was able to include both photos and information that were previously, but no longer, classified. He is also the producer of a new film titled Third Eye Spies which is due for release at the end of the year. Fahrusha has seen two iterations of the film in progress and hails it as an important historical document and a gripping narrative of psychic espionage. The award-winning director of the film is Lance Mungia.

One quote from the movie’s home page sums up Russell Targ’s  point of view about remote viewing, “The CIA, NSA and DIA used it, your tax dollars paid for it, and now you deserve to know about it.”

C. M. Mayo, author of Metaphysical Odyssey Into The Mexican Revolution: Francisco I. Madero and his secret book, Spiritist Manual.

On June 28, 2016, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed award-winning author C.M. Mayo to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to discuss the role of Spiritism on the 1910 Mexican Revolution and related topics. Francisco I. Madero who briefly became the President of Mexico was a devout Spiritist. He was also a leader of the 1910 Mexican Revolution.

Mayo’s book Metaphysical Odyssey into the Mexican revolution: Francisco I. Madero and his secret book Spiritist Manual, is actually two books in one. The first part is a well researched examination of Francisco I. Madero’s Involvement with Spiritism (an offshoot of Spirtualism with some unusual twists) and its effect on the Mexican Revolution and thereby the history of Mexico. It also chronicles C.M. Mayo’s journey to understanding the very complex network of interrelationships between the players and philosophies responsible for the Mexican Revolution.

The second book within a book is C.M. Mayo’s painstaking translation of Madero’s Spiritist Manual which he wrote under the nom de plume “Bhîma”. It is an interesting look inside the mind of one of Mexico’s most famous leaders from a metaphysical perspective.

We think students of history as well as those interested in the paranormal will find this episode fascinating.

Errata: The 2016 SSE Symposium happened in Boulder, CO not Denver.

Kathleen Marden Experiencer Investigations #24

 

Kathleen Marden

 

On January 19, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were pleased to welcome Kathleen Marden, who is currently heading MUFON’s experiencer investigations. Marden is the niece of two of the most famous abduction experiencers in US history, Betty and Barney Hill. She, with Stanton Friedman, chronicled their story in the book, Captured, The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience. This book has been optioned for a movie.

Kathleen Marden has written another book, The Alien Abduction Files, with experiencer Denise Stoner. She was the recipient of MUFON’s 2012 “Ufologist of the Year” award.

We talk in depth with Ms. Marden about her research into alien abductions and experiencer reports.

Errata: The author and book that slipped Fahrusha’s mind was John A. Keel and the Mothman Prophesies. Apologies to the late Mr. Keel, as we here at “Shattered Reality Podcast” are big fans.

Dr. Guy McPherson “Nature Bats Last” #23

Dr. Guy McPherson, Professor Emeritus and co-host of “Nature Bats Last”

On January 12, 2016 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were honored to welcome Dr. Guy McPherson of the archived radio show “Nature Bats Last” to Shattered Reality Podcast. Dr. McPherson is a conservation biologist who has written numerous books, including most recently: Extinction Dialogs: How to Live with Death in Mind (with Carolyn Baker), Going Dark, and Walking Away From Empire: A Personal Journey.

This episode may be disturbing to many, because our guest causes us to consider the annihilation of homo sapiens and other species due to the ravages that civilization has wrought upon the biosphere of our dear Mother Earth. This conclusion does not arise from one single cause but a variety of contributing factors at play including burgeoning population, temperature rise, methane release, burning of fossil fuels, nuclear meltdowns and death of the oceans to name a few. It is quite important to listen to this, especially if you are a person who is deferring your joy to a time in the future when you believe things will be better for you. NOW is the best time, it is always now, so don’t postpone happiness.

“If you really think the environment is less important than the economy, try counting your money while holding your breath.” ~ Dr. Guy McPherson

We conclude this episode with a listener experience written by Adriana and narrated by Fahrusha. Adriana has had two major episodes of bi-location and one out-of-body experience, all in her native Romania.

Nancy “Scooter” McMoneagle, Director of the Monroe Institute #16

 

Nancy “Scooter” McMoneagle

On August 11, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Nancy “Scooter” McMoneagle to Shattered Reality Podcast. “Scooter” McMoneagle is an amazing woman who is at the nexus of the consciousness revolution. She is the President and Executive Director of the prestigious Monroe Institute, the wife of renowned remote viewer Joe McMoneagle, the stepdaughter of consciousness pioneer, Robert Monroe (founder of the Monroe Institute), and a celebrated astrologer as well. We talked about the experience of visiting the famed Monroe Institute and its varied programs, how her step-dad, Bob Monroe became her mentor and how she met Joe McMoneagle, her husband.

We think you will really enjoy this interview. We did!

Errata: Fahrusha’s first visit to TMI was in 2004 not 2003.

Alex Tsakiris of Skeptiko #14

 

Alex Tsakiris of Skeptiko

On June 23, 2015, Alex Tsakiris, host of Skeptiko podcast, joined Kate Valentine and Fahrusha to discuss his views about a host of paranormal and related subjects, including conspiracies, remote viewing, scientism, UFOs, mainstream “news”, ethno-pharmacology, and debunkers. We chose having Alex on the show because of the valuable work he has done by having debunkers on his show and taking them on with intelligence and grace, while demolishing their faulty positions forcefully and with aplomb. We may not agree with everything he proposes but we are eternally grateful for his doing some very heavy lifting for all legitimate anomalous researchers. His crusade against the antiquated and disproven paradigms of the mechanistic and materialistic worldview is truly a valuable contribution to the very paradigm shifting we espouse on “Shattered Reality Podcast”. It is a very lively discussion we think you will enjoy.

Ellen Hodgson Brown, Renaissance Woman #12

Ellen Hodgson Brown, author of Web of Debt

On May 22, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Ellen Hodgson Brown to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. She is the author of many interesting books, one of which is Web of Debt: The Shocking Truth About Our Money System and How We Can Break Free. We discuss this book and other things on this episode of our podcast.

Ellen Hodgson Brown, J.D., is the founder, first President and the inspiration and intellectual leader of the Public Banking Institute (PBI)a nonpartisan think tank devoted to the creation of publicly run banks. She is a strong advocate for Public Banking. She has also written books about natural health practices.

Brown ran for California State Treasurer on the Green Party ticket in the 2014 election. To date she has written 12 books and is a lawyer. Truly Ms. Hodgson Brown is a Renaissance woman!

Captain Andy Danziger on UFOs, David Biedny commentary Roswell Slides #11

Captain Andrew Danziger who is very sadly no longer with us.

On May 15, 2015 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha spoke with Captain Andy Danziger about airline pilots and UFOs. Captain Danziger has had many years experience as an airline pilot and a flight instructor. He has been a pilot for President Obama and he is a writer on aviation issues for the New York Daily News. His first-hand account of a UFO encounter is unparalleled.

David Biedny contributes an Op-Ed piece about the so-called Roswell Slides. We invite any member of the “Roswell Dream Team” or Jaime Maussen to come on and give a rebuttal.

Please like us here and on FaceBook and on iTunes. Leave us a comment, a question, or suggestion. We will answer you.
