#49 Dr. Phillip Davidson and EVT

Dr. Phillip Davidson, the originator of EVT

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are pleased to welcome Dr. Phillip Davidson to “Shattered Reality Podcast.” Phil started his professional life as an IT professional and spent a number of years at a high level job in Hong Kong. When he returned to the United Kingdom, he decided to retrain and earned a PhD in Psychology. He had a keen interest in the nature of consciousness and became a grief counselor. Coincidentally, like our last guest, Dr. Milton Wainwright, Phil hails from Sheffield, England. Fahrusha had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with Phil at a Monroe Institute’s Professional Division Seminar.

Over the years of being a grief counselor he noted how many individuals he interacted with were unable to move forward after the death of a loved one, particularly if the loved one was a child. Phil takes people from the waking state of consciousness to a place where they can access their unconscious. EVT is that process. Through EVT, Enhanced Visualization Technique, people are able to leave their bodies, meet their higher selves, and communicate with their departed loved ones. Loss of body image or proprioception is key to EVT. With EVT one can stay conscious during the entire experience of exploration of the unconsciousness.

Dr. Davidson specializes in using his technique with grieving people, but psychonaut explorers can greatly benefit from EVT as well. With EVT the grieving individual can learn to communicate with the departed loved one at will and without the services of a medium. We at “Shattered Reality Podcast” like the idea of this method because it appears to bridge the gap between a person’s unconscious and the One that is all individual consciousnesses. We ourselves have not sampled EVT but would certainly like to do so.

Dr. Phillip Davidson can be contacted via email at: phillip.davidson@btinternet.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.”

#42 Psychic Experiences of Psi Explorers

Click Here
In this podcast episode #42, Kate Valentine and Fahrusha speak to two Psi Explorers and one listener about their personal psychic experiences.

Russell Targ and Fahrusha at the 2016 SSE Symposium (courtesy of Rosanna Schaffer-Shaw)

First up is Russell Targ, formerly of the Stanford Research Institute, and one of the originators of remote viewing. His two stories of his own precognitive dreams are thought-provoking. He emphasizes that psychic dreams and other psi phenomena are normal and these experiences can be had by anyone. We just need to be attentive to them.

Russell Targ’s latest book The of Reality of ESP, A Physicist’s Proof of Psychic Abilities is an excellent book explaining several different but related psi abilities and substantial examples from his professional experience. A trailer for his movie about the history of the US government’s Remote Viewing program and his participation in it can be seen at the website thirdeyespies.com.

Dr. Michael Grosso, author of "The Man Who Could Fly"

Next up is Dr. Michael Grosso who tells two stories from his own collection of personal psychic experiences. The first is the story of a beautiful Christmas miracle (I can’t tell you more because that would be a spoiler) and the second is a precognitive dream he had as a child. His most recent book is The Man Who Could Fly: St. Joseph of Copertino and the Mystery of Levitation.

Listener Peter completes this episode with a very strange ghostly experience he had at the illustrious old Hotel Del Coronado in California in the early 1990’s.

Notes: During the episode Fahrusha mentioned an opinion piece on her blog which was reprinted by George Filer on Filer’s Files. We want to also thank Ken Pfeifer for also reprinting it. The article is called Extraterrestrial Evolution.

#41 Alan Steinfeld New Realities

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome New Realities founder Alan Steinfeld to Shattered Reality Podcast. Our discussion is very wide-ranging and very conversational. We talk about a trip that Alan organized and Fahrusha and a group of merry seekers made to Damanhur, the intentional community in Northern Italy, which focuses on ecology, art and spirituality. We move on to ET experiences and the significance of the experience to the individual and to society. Is there the possibility of disclosure? Are ET experiences transcendent? Negative? The same as spiritual experiences? We probe these questions a bit.

Together we do get into ideas and concepts where we voice opinions and hash it out. It was necessary to clarify terms so that we knew precisely about what we were speaking. It was edifying to note, though we might use different terms we were overwhelmingly on the same page.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome Dr. Claude Swanson to “Shattered Reality Podcast”. He discusses a number of fascinating phenomena that are not explainable by Western physics and posits an alternative theory of subtle energy and torsion.

We discuss many topics including time travel, remote viewing, UFOs, psychokinesis, out of body experiences and more; all in the context of a different picture of physics. We could have talked to Dr. Swanson for two days straight and still have more topics to cover. Dr. Swanson’s books are The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal and Life Force: The Scientific Basis. He is writing a third volume centering on the physics of the soul and the afterlife. His website is http://synchronizeduniverse.com.

Dr. Swanson grew up in Virginia. He studied physics at M.I.T. and went on to get his Ph.D. at Princeton, working with Nobel Laureate Robert Dicke. He did post graduate work at both Princeton and Cornell. Later he formed his own consulting firm and worked on applied physics projects for a number of corporate and government entities.

This podcast was recorded on November 1, 2016.
