On October 24, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were very pleased to welcome Dr. John B. Alexander back to Shattered Reality Podcast to discuss his new book Reality Denied, Firsthand Experiences with Things That Can’t Happen But Did. This book is an autobiography of many of Alexander’s paranormal experiences and extraordinary events. He is the author of a number of other books and articles including UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities and is the recipient of awards too numerous to mention.
We spoke about UFOs, trans-species communication with dolphins and unusual human skills including metal bending. The book is filled with fascinating and mind-bending experiences, exotic places visited, and extraordinary people met. But the takeaway is the lifelong quest and metamorphosis of a curious individual who began his career as an infantry private. He rose to Army colonel, received a PhD, became a non-lethal weapons expert and more recently delved into shamanism. John calls for more research into the nature of consciousness and these things that can’t happen but do. He fears that today’s paradigm of materialism keeps young scientists from researching the true nature of consciousness. He encourages more open-mindedness in science and hopes that young researchers will have the courage to explore areas beyond the soul-crushing confines of mechanistic materialism, as have many quantum physicists.
