Fahrusha was very happy to welcome David Booher, author of No Return, The Gerry Irwin Story, UFO Abduction or Covert Operation? to Shattered Reality Podcast. Booher has penned an exceptionally well written and well researched book on the extraordinary experiences of an Army soldier in 1959. Before David Booher did his research, everyone in the ufological community thought that Gerry Irwin had completely disappeared. Booher found Irwin, alive and reasonably well in his native Idaho.

While on leave from Fort Bliss in 1959, Gerry Irwin saw an unidentified falling object in Utah during his drive toward his army base in Texas. Thinking it was a plane in the process of crashing he left his car by the side of the road and headed into the bush to help. He was found by a local sheriff face down in the February snow. He subsequently suffered from extreme amnesia and went AWOL on two occasions. Those are the bare bones of the story as described in 1962 by Jim and Coral Lorenzen of APRO. We discussed some of the many details the author was able to ferret out.

In our Listeners Corner, June Ponte, an artist and intuitive from New Jersey, tells us of two UFO sightings she experienced in the Garden State. Co-incidentally Gerry Irwin had been a Nike missile technologist at the time of his initial experience and June Ponte had been protesting nuclear power directly before one of her sightings.

Dr. Irena Scott and UFO Secrets #55

Dr. Irena Scott, author of UFOs Today, and researcher into the government cover-up.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are proud to present Dr. Irena Scott, author of UFOs Today, 70 Years of Lies, Misinformation and Government Cover-Up, to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. Her book is a compendium of many years of research into the UFO phenomena.  An Ohio native, who has worked for the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Battelle Memorial Institute as an image analyst, she has a very impressive educational background including a BS from Ohio State University, an MS from the University of Nevada, and a PhD from the University of Missouri in the Department of Veterinary Medicine. Her post-doctoral studies were done at Cornell University. She also has been an case investigator for the MUFON. Add to that her proximity and frequent visits to Wright Patterson Air Force Base, which is purportedly where the remains of alien visitors and crashed alien craft are taken, and you have the makings of some astonishing reports that Dr. Scott got directly from witnesses.

We explore her impressions of what she thinks are the origins and purposes of those non-human intelligences which have been recorded since the dawn of time, but more specifically in her book, since the famous Kenneth Arnold sighting in 1947. Included in our discussion is the fascinating and heretofore under-reported Coyne helicopter case, which is one of many such cases featured in her book.

In our “Listener’s Corner” we feature well-known NYC artist Anthony Santuoso who speaks about two family members’ experiences with UFOs and and his father’s near death experience. Anthony is a painter in the style of Magical Realism, a founding member of the seminal co-operative Bowery Gallery in Manhattan, and a current instructor in the Fine Arts Department of the Fashion Institute of Technology.

#53 Lucina Stone “Santa Muerte” Novel

Lucina Stone, author of novel “Santa Muerte” and “Shattered Reality Podcast” listener.

Click HERE to listen.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are proud to welcome listener and author Lucina Stone to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. She is the author of the Daniela Story series of young adult fiction. The first book of the series is called Santa Muerte and was inspired by our show “Shattered Reality Podcast”, and more specifically by the episodes dealing with Mexico. Lucina is an avid listener to our podcast. We are elated to have inspired someone to the degree that they felt impelled to write a series of books!

Lucina, from Morris County, New Jersey, was the 2016 winner of two awards of the prestigious International Latino Book Awards for Best Sci/Fi novel and Best New Author. Santa Muerte- The Daniela Story (Story Merchant Books Press, 2016 release) tackles diversity in science fiction and fantasy by using folklore and culture.  She holds a MA in Clinical Counseling and is a Licensed Professional Counselor.

On this episode we discuss the genesis of this novel. Lucina paid attention to her dreams, which gave her some ideas for the novel. Her novel is very inclusive giving important roles within it to women, Latinas and LGBT people. We here at “Shattered Reality Podcast” support inclusivity, especially as we are both women. Much of the story is about the relationship between mothers and daughters as cultures change through time and country, but there are some surprising science fiction plot twists that will amaze the reader.

Note: Fahrusha mentioned Carlos Castaneda, the Yaqui shaman Don Juan, and the female followers of Castaneda, but could not remember the name of the one whose books she had read and found intriguing. That woman was Florinda Donner, who was actually married for Castaneda for a number of years and member of a Nagual group that surrounded him, including also Taisha Abelar. “They were known as the witches, and two of them, Florinda Donner-Grau and Taisha Abelar, vanished the day after Castaneda’s death, along with Cleargreen president Amalia Marquez and Tensegrity instructor Kylie Lundahl. A few weeks later, Patricia Partin, Castaneda’s adopted daughter as well as his lover, also disappeared.” (From the Salon article by Robert Marshall.)

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome Brenda Dunne lab manager of the PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) Lab to Shattered Reality Podcast. Fahrusha was lucky to meet Brenda Dunne and Dr. Robert Jahn at this year’s SSE Symposium at Yale in June. 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 have 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.

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).

#51 Dr. Michael Reddy, Songs, Family Constellations and Shamanism

Dr. Michael Reddy

To listen CLICK HERE.

On July 11, 2017 Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. Michael J. Reddy to “Shattered Reality Podcast.” We started the show with two of the entertaining “Keynoter” songs that Michael has written and sung at several professional conferences to help set themes and introduce main speakers. They are both about current changing paradigms.

Then we turned to Michael’s practice of Family Constellation Work. As he says, “there are two kinds of trauma—the one you experience yourself, and the sort you inherit from parents and ancestors who could not clear it themselves.” This heritable form of trauma is supported increasingly now by epigentics, but it remains present in and passes down through a psychic, transgenerational family system. He maintains that left over loyalties to unresolved issues in your birth family’s past can shape your life for the worse and that constellation work clears these. Michael credits the work with saving his life in 2008.

Michael’s book on the subject is Health, Happiness & Family Constellations, How Ancestors, Family Systems and Hidden Loyalties Shape Your Life and What You Can Do About It. To see what a constellation looks like, check out the 15 minute video at www.tinyurl.com/constellation3d.

Finally we discussed Michael’s 7 year apprenticeship with native and mixed blood indigenous teachers from 1986-93. One of these teachers was the late Sun Bear, a controversial Ojibwe elder who espoused sharing the traditional medicine with all races. Our co-host Fahrusha also had an interesting experience with Sun Bear when he visited the yoga studio she attended. In shamanic terms, successful constellations start to look like divination followed by sympathetic magic. Michael can be contacted through www.reddyworks.com, michael@reddyworks.com.

#47 Surviving Death with Leslie Kean

Leslie Kean, author of Surviving Death

To listen Click HERE.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are proud to welcome Leslie Kean, author of both Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence For An Afterlife and UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record , to Shattered Reality Podcast. We have  a very lively discussion about the implications of a number of phenomena which suggest survival of individual consciousness after death.

Kean’s new book surveys parapsychological studies of a variety of classes of evidential experiences and introduces the reader to Kean’s own personal search for answers to the puzzle of whether consciousness survives death. There are chapters within the book authored by a variety of credible researchers who are tops in their fields. Topics include the past life experiences of young children, near death experiences (NDEs), end of life experiences, and experiences with mediums of various sorts.

If you have had an experience which suggests life after death such as communication from a recently deceased loved one or perhaps you yourself have had an NDE, and you would like to share that experience on the show, please use the contact form below:

#45 Tom Butler and EVPs

Tom Butler, EVP expert and author Your Immortal Self, Exploring the Mindful Way

Listen HERE.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome Tom Butler, expert on the EVP 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.”
