On September 8, 2020 Fahrusha was very happy to welcome philosopher and friend of the show Michael Grosso Ph.D. to “Shattered Reality Podcast” for his third visit. His newest book is called Smile of the Universe: Miracles in the Age of Disbelief. Grounded in true stories and matters of fact, Michael Grosso argues for the reality of a great Mind and for the human ability to communicate with that Mind. The first amazing thing we discussed is that the word ‘smile’ and the word “miracle’ come from the same Sanskrit root ‘smi’.
Many miraculous topics were covered. Padre Pio is a 20th Century Roman Catholic Saint who is credited with abundant miracles, many of which were attested to by sources outside the Catholic Church. One of his charisms or siddhis was the ‘odor of sanctity’, a lovely smell both he and St. Joseph of Copertino were said to exude. The Padre was said to be able to read minds and bilocate.
Savants bridge the void between materialists and philosophical idealists because they exhibit skills they had no way of learning conventionally and these skills are undeniable. The Indian Ramanujan was a gifted wizard of mathematics with little traditional schooling. Derek Amato acquired high level musical skills after a head injury. Others start speaking in languages heretofore unknown to them.
We discussed axial ages and portal areas such as Western NY in 19th Century which was the birthplace of spiritualist movement and the Church of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons).
René Descartes and Isaac Newton who today are regarded as scientific materialists, both had deep spiritual influences and precognitive dreams.
We thank listener Chris from NJ for his wonderful dream UFO healing account and hope to hear more from him.
