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.
On June 10 2015, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha were pleased and excited to welcome John B. Alexander, Ph.D. to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. In the intro to our podcast “paradigm shifting” is prominently mentioned and Dr. Alexander is nothing if not a paradigm shifting individual! His life is so varied and fascinating that it would have taken many more hours to ask him about all of his interests.
Dr. Alexander has written an engrossing book, UFOs, Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities dealing with his adventures in attempting to find out from the inside what the government knows about UFOs. He contends that disclosure has already taken place, UFOs are unarguably real but humanity is asking the wrong questions. His book is comprehensive and well written with a great many dates and details. Dr. Alexander has written a number of other engaging books which can be accessed at his website.
Born in New York, Dr. Alexander entered the army in 1956. He commanded a Special Forces A team in Viet Nam and Thailand and started the Advanced Theoretical Physics Project studying UFOs while still in the Army. After he retired from the Service with the rank of Colonel of Infantry, he worked in the field of non-lethal weaponry at Los Alamos National Labs. He has a Ph.D. in Thanatology, the scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families. He is also involved with studying shamanism around the world. There is so much more we would have liked to ask Dr. Alexander. Hopefully he will come back to speak with us again.
