#59 Lynne Kelly and The Memory Code

Lynne Kelly, Ph.D., author of The Memory Code, joined Fahrusha and Kate Valentine on Shattered Reality Podcast to discuss memory devices used by oral cultures from the Stone Age to the present day. A native of Australia she was drawn into this study whilst working on her doctorate. What she discovered really surprised her.

She started by researching Australian Aboriginal songlines. The elders of these groups knew all of the plants and animals from memory and often generations of lineage back into time. She discovered the mechanism by which they accomplished this feat. Much of the knowledge was restricted to elders or shamans. They would trek to areas that held significance and repeat dances and songs which held enormous amounts of related knowledge. There were also objects with inscrutable (to the uninitiated) marks which held mountains of knowledge and were portable. Preliterate cultures around the world used these memory palaces and memory devices and some cultures still do. Among those that still employ these devices are many Aboriginal groups in Australia, some African tribes as well as cultures in Oceana. Memory champions in the literate world have learned some of these techniques from writings of the ancient Greeks and use them to win contests today. The Memory Code gives us amazing insight into the mysteries of ancient places like Stonehenge,  the Nasca Lines and Easter Island to name a few.

#57 John B. Alexander Reality Denied

Reality Denied: Firsthand Experiences with Things that Can’t Happen -But Did by John B. Alexander, PhD

Listen HERE

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 who rose to Army colonel, received a PhD, became a non-lethal weapons expert and more recently delved into shamanism. He 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 precludes 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.

#56 Was Gerry Irwin a UFO Abductee?

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.

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.
