#90 Neil Langdon Inglis Speaks About Brian Inglis

subject of the podcast

Brian Inglis, TV personality, author and historian.

Click HERE to listen.

Fahrusha was very happy to welcome Neil Langdon Inglis to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Neil Langdon Inglis is the son of the late Irish historian, television personality and author of books on the anomalous and history. Neil has had something of a difficult relationship with his father during his teen years and had rather repudiated his father’s point of view during that time, to the point of becoming a member of a debunker organization.

Since his father’s death, Neil Langdon Inglis has gone from debunker to skeptic to a member of the Fortean community, which is where Fahrusha had the pleasure of meeting him. Brian Inglis was a prolific writer whose works on psi and the paranormal are currently being republished by White Crow Books. Among those works are: The Power of Dreams, Coincidence: A Matter of Chance- or Synchronicity?, and Natural and Supernatural: A History of the Paranormal from the Earliest Times to 1914.

Brian Inglis was a well know historian and media figure when he embarked on a second career writing extensively on paranormal subjects. He became friends with Uri Geller, the well known Israeli remote viewer, and was very convinced of his talents. Others, by whose accounts he was fascinated, were Italian medium Eusapia Palladino and Scottish levitating medium Daniel Dunglas Home.

Misfortunately Neil’s personal experiences with the paranormal have been less than pleasant. It has come to Fahrusha’s mind after interviewing Neil, that a possible reason why he has found his experiences disgreeable is because of the loss of control or volition implicit in them.

#89 Dan Farcas: Hypercivilizations

Dan Farcas is author of Hypercivilizations

Dan Farcas, PhD, author of Hypercivilizations: An Answer to ET Contacts on Earth

Click HERE to listen.

On June 18, 2019 Fahrusha welcomed Romanian scientist and author Dan Farcas, PhD to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. We discussed his latest book, Hypercivilizations: An Answer to ET Contacts on Earth. The approach of the book is a synthesis of many years of thought and study in various allied areas of scientific analysis as regards possible extraterrestrial civilizations. His conclusions are well researched and I recommend that listeners take the time to understand what is being said.

Additionally we discussed artificial intelligence, tall blonde humanoids and the importance of love (in the sense of agape) and good will. He asserts that alien intelligence may be billions of years beyond us and must be benevolent. There are 11 chapters in the book, any of which could yield an hour long discussion for “Shattered Reality Podcast”.

Our Listeners’ Corner featured Christopher Rex speaking about a powerful near death experience (NDE) he had as a teenager in New Braunfels, Texas. He was swimming in a dangerous location with friends and drowned. Listeners will find this account quite compelling.

We invite our listeners to submit their experiences to: fahrusha@fahrusha.com for possible inclusion on a future episode.

#88 Conversations in Cosmology Michael Grosso

Michael Grosso, guest on Shattered Reality Podcast

Philosopher Michael Grosso PhD. author of The Final Choice: Death or Transcendence

To listen, Click HERE.

Fahrusha welcomed philosopher Michael Grosso, PhD. to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to have a conversation about cosmology and his updated book, The Final Choice: Death or Transcendence. He is very involved with the primacy of consciousness over reductive materialism. He came into this point of view through his experiences with the epi-phenomena of psychic functioning.

Dr. Grosso explains how through the study of psychic functioning one is brought to the understanding that consciousness is fundamental. He gives examples in near-death experiences, Goddess manifestations, UFOs, psychokinesis and dreams. Amazingly, Michael predicted the shooting and survival of President Ronald Reagan through a dream.

Michael Grosso, Ph.D. is an independent scholar and part of an ever growing group of scholars and thinkers critical of the prevailing materialistic view of the world. He has taught humanities and philosophy at Marymount Manhattan College, City University of New York, and City University of New Jersey. Among his other books are The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation, Experiencing the Next World Now, The Millennium Myth: Love and Death at the End of Time, Soulmaking: Uncommon Paths to Self-Understanding and Frontiers of the Soul. He is co-author of a number of books, most prominently Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century.

Consciousness Unbound is Michael Grosso’s very interesting blog.

Fahrusha (red-faced), who has enjoyed visiting Charlottesville more than a dozen times, apologizes for renaming the city Charlottesburg.

Third Eye Spies is the new movie from the father of remote viewing Russell Targ and film maker Lance Mungia

Click HERE to listen.

On May 14, 2019, Fahrusha was very pleased to welcome physicist Russell Targ and filmmaker Lance Mungia to “Shattered Reality Podcast” to discuss their film Third Eye Spies. The film chronicles the story of the government’s remote viewing program with emphasis on viewer Pat Price and the role of physicists Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff. Many accounts of events in and around the movie were discussed that were absolutely fascinating. Many of the people discussed in the film are still in the forefront of psi research today while others remain totally anonymous. What actually happened to the amazing Pat Price is still something of a mystery, since there a number of conflicting narratives regarding his death. The film is available for sale through the website, and on rental and download from Amazon, iTunes, and other vendors.

Russ kindly gave a number of pointers to those, like listener Earl, who would like to try remote viewing on their own.

Sad note: Yesterday the world of ufology lost a legend, nuclear physicist Stanton T. Friedman. Rest In Peace. He was a very approachable and friendly man whose contribution the study of anomalous aerial phenomena. I feel privileged to have met him and spoken to him several times.

Errata: This is the 87th “Shattered Reality Podcast” not the 89th.

#86 Anomalous Happenings in Hudson County NJ

to show the area discussed

Hudson County, New Jersey map.

To listen click HERE.

On March 26, 2019, Fahrusha interviewed Kate, a loquacious and interesting “Shattered Reality Podcast” listener, about her anomalous experiences in Hudson County, New Jersey. Closer to Manhattan than many parts of the five boroughs of New York City, Hudson County is steeped in its own legends and paranormal happenings. This is a short interview focused on Kate’s family experiences with the world of spiritual after-death contact. We also briefly cover a UFO flap of the ’60s. Think of Budd Hopkins’ recounting of the UFO landing in the park on Boulevard East, it is the same flap.

The interview is relatively short, but we think you will enjoy it. Strangely Kate’s story somewhat mirrors the experiences of another listener we interviewed, June Ponte, from Hudson County.

If you are a listener to “Shattered Reality Podcast”, even if you are not from Hudson County, and would like to tell us about your paranormal experiences please get in touch by leaving a message on this posting.

#85 Owls, UFOs and Synchronicity

Owls and their relationship to UFOs and synchronicity are the subjects of Mike Clelland’s work.

To Listen, Click HERE.

On March 12, 2019 Fahrusha welcomed Mike Clelland, an avid outdoorsman, illustrator and UFO researcher, to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. He has written extensively on the subject of owls, UFOs, and synchronicity. This episode was particularly conversational, with Fahrusha contributing some of her experiences to the mix. The short take-away from this is that people who have experiences with owls in the wild often also have UFO experiences and many of them may be abductees as well. Some folks see owls that are impossibly big to be flesh and blood owls. Under hypnosis these people sometimes find that what they saw were actually small grey aliens.

Though Mike’s research centers around the owl/UFO connection, Fahrusha drew parallels to other animal/UFO connections involving raccoons, cats and opossums among others. Fahrusha is a city chick, but she is a good spotter of birds and mammals in the wild. Owls have the best hearing of all birds and excellent night vision as well. Their feathers are specially equipped for silent flight. Cats and dogs also see more than the spectrum visible to humans, and may be sensitive to invisible intruders. All human companions of cats have been unnerved by the felines staring intently at something the human cannot see.

Clelland has written two books on owls and their relationship to the UFO enigma: The Messengers and Stories From the Messengers, both of which are an engaging read. He writes an interesting blog at http://hiddenexperience.blogspot.com/

#84 UFO Secrecy with Robert Salas

Robert Salas, retired USAF Captain and author.

To listen click HERE.

On February 27, 2019, Fahrusha was pleased to welcome Retired Air Force Captain Robert Salas to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Robert is the author of two excellent books, Unidentified: The UFO Phenomenon: How World Governments Have Conspired to Conceal Humanity’s Biggest Secret and Faded Giant (co-author James Klotz).

We discussed the Oscar flight shutdown of nuclear missiles by UFOs at Malmstrom Air Force Base in 1967 where Robert Salas was stationed and where he was a missile launch officer in the underground bunker when the shutdown occurred. There was also an almost identical shutdown a week earlier on Echo flight. (Please see our interview with Robert Hastings.)

Robert has proposed that according to game theory, the forces for secrecy and those that push for disclosure are playing a zero sum game. He believes that eventually disclosure must happen. As an adherent of the extra-terrestrial hypothesis (ETH) he believes that ET is on our side, though he allows that there may be more than one kind of ET. He has had some personal experiences with “the others” and feels that his mission is to warn of the dangers of nuclear weapons. That mission is a noble one.

Recently Robert Salas has traveled to Peru with renowned musician Will Galison where he was shown some mummies of non-human creatures, he thinks may be aliens. There are a number of international scientists working on the case and we eagerly await their findings.

Note 1: Homo floresiensis, a.k.a. “the Hobbit,” was an ancient hominin that lived until at least 17,000 years ago in South East Asia on the remote Indonesian island of Flores. Some think its extinction was more recent.

Note 2: The Texas UFO flap Fahrusha referenced in regard to Angelia Joiner was the Stephenville incident.
