#75 Eric Wargo Precognition

Time Loops by Eric Wargo

To listen click HERE

Fahrusha welcomed Eric Wargo, author of Time Loops and The Nightshirt blog to “Shattered Reality Podcast.” Time Loops is an intensive look at precognition. Dr. Wargo covers premonitions, presentiments and dreams. He believes that precognition, literally “knowing ahead”, is a product of retrocausation. Retrocausation is a theory in physics wherein the effect precedes its cause. This is a radical and fairly new idea that is gaining more acceptance. Simply put, the future affects the present and the past, creating a loop in time. It fits into the logic that time can move backwards as well as forwards as postulated in theoretical physics. Because we are biological entities who seem to move only one way in time inexorably from birth to death, it is difficult to imagine that causation can move in the opposite direction. Yet in terms of theoretical physics this should be possible.

Quantum computing apparently uses retrocausation in its functioning.

Remote viewing, specifically associative remote viewing relies entirely on retrocausation. One is pre-cognizing the outcome of a sports game, for instance.

Almost one hundred years ago, J.W. Dunne wrote a seminal book on precognitive dreams, An Experiment with Time, which changed the way of thinking about prescient dreams and introduced to the public the idea of retrocausality to precognition. Eric told us of a “Dunne” dream he had about 9/11 involving two identical square concrete mosques. After Eric signed off, Fahrusha read the 9/11 accounts from listeners Mark, Nurse Nancy, Suzanne Evans Morris, Ph.D., and intuitive Greg; and related some of her own experiences in an abbreviated form.

We sincerely hope Kate Valentine will be with us for our next exciting podcast.

Author Eric Wargo, Ph.D. His book is Time Loops and his blog is The Nightshirt.

#74 Dr. James McClenon and SORRAT

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcomed Dr. James McClenon to Shattered Reality Podcast.  He has written a book called The Entity Letters, A Sociologist on the Trail of a Supernatural Mystery. It is the story of a group of individuals, the SORRAT sitter group (Society for Research on Rapport and Telekinesis) who engaged in 50 years telekinetic experimentation. The witnessed effects included table tipping and levitation, poltergeist phenomena, earthquake effects and rapping. Most amazingly then entities purportedly communicated with the members of the SORRAT group by mail! Interestingly just about everyone who actually sat in with the SORRAT group over the course of time came to accept the phenomena as real, whereas everyone who did not experience the phenomena in person, tended to believe that it was impossible and therefore, falsified.
Dr. James McClenon faithfully documents his experiences with the group from the viewpoint of a sociologist. He was unable to discover any plausible method by which all of the phenomena could have been falsified. Though any individual phenomenon could have been rigged, all of the phenomena together would have taken enormous skill and the co-operation of a number of individuals over there course of many years to falsify. He did not find any collusion between the participants, nor any sustained motivation to collude. Some of the phenomena happened at various locations, specifically occasions of the “rapping” which even occurred at McClenon’s home.

Shattered Reality Podcast invites listeners to send in their paranormal experiences which relate to the incidents surrounding the events of September 11, 2001. We will attempt to deal with this in a very respectful and tasteful manner. It is possible for listeners to relate their experiences directly on the show or to submit a written account to be read on the show. All accounts and questions should be emailed to fahrusha@fahrusha.com.

#71 Ball Lightning and UFOs with Dr. Irena Scott

Dr. Irena Scott discusses her new book, Inside the Lightning Ball: Scientific Study of Lifelong UFO Experiences.

Click HERE to listen.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha enjoyed welcoming back Irena Scott, PhD, to “Shattered Reality Podcast” for our seventy first show. Dr. Scott has written five books and the latest one, Inside the Lightning Ball: Scientific Study of Lifelong UFO Experiences, is autobiographical in that it concerns her own paranormal experiences regarding UFOs, orbs and ball lightning. She wanted to be very clear that when critics and debunkers say that scientists do not see UFOs the critics are misinformed. In the book, she also elucidates why she thinks some people are multiple experiencers.

Irena Scott started having UFO experiences as a young child in a rural farm house when an unknown glowing metallic object flew around the attic bedroom she shared with her sister. Her sister, mother and cousin corroborated the report. She had a bizarre lightning experience in Texas, where she also witnessed what was probably the famous Marfa lights. She had many UFO sightings in Ohio while working for the DIA. She recounted for us a second sighting she had while driving near Boston with her sister. Again her sister backed up the report.

I believe that Dr. Scott is doing a great service by revealing her sightings and experiences. The more credible folks that do this, the less likely experiencers will be ridiculed and maligned because of these events. No longer will scientists fear the loss of their hard-won professional positions. I especially like that she does not speculate overly much on what these phenomena might be. She is confident to say “I don’t know .” when appropriate. For instance, sometimes orbs seem to be related to electrical storms while at other times they seem more related to UFOs or even nature spirits. There is a need for these phenomena to be studied with an open mind by those that haven’t come to a premature conclusion.

#69 David B. Metcalfe – Folklore of the Strange

 

David B. Metcalfe, Folklore of the Strange

Listen HERE

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha welcome paranormal researcher, David B. Metcalfe, to”Shattered Reality Podcast”. David is currently working with former guest, Andrew Chesnut, on a follow-up book about Santa Muerte. He is also the editor in chief of Threshold: Journal of Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies (TJICS), a new, free, online-only, open access journal of the Windbridge Research Center. You may remember the Windbridge researchers, Dr. Julie Beischel and Mark Boccuzzi from past episodes of SRP. David studied Philosophy and Folklore at Elmhurst College in Illinois. His day job is digital communications and he is a two dimensional artist as well.

We spoke about the Santa Muerte (Saint Death) cult emanating from Mexico. The belief spans the Americas today. The tradition is widespread and runs the gamut from blessings to curses, some of which can be very violent. He and Craig Williams are involved in a book project to support Haitian artists in the Voodoo style. Listener Will had questions about the definitions of Satanism and Santa Muerte which David answered. We spoke about how we in the US seldom see dead bodies whereas in other cultures such as those of Latin America and India, it is common to see the bodies of the dead. It may not be healthy for us to almost never see a dead body because it allows Americans to deny the psychological truth of Death.

Other topics covered included UFOs, abductions, To The Stars Academy, the Christian faith healing practice of praying and talking away the fire (burns), Native American Skinwalkers, Pennsylvania Dutch Pow-Wow tradition and other communal practices. In addition, David writes for Medium and runs a website about Santa Muerte with Andrew Chesnut called Skeleton Saint.

#66 Mark Boccuzzi Adventures in Psi

Mark Boccuzzi

Psi Researcher Mark Boccuzzi of the Windbridge Institute.

 

Listen HERE

Fahrusha was very pleased to welcome psi researcher Mark Boccuzzi to Shattered Reality Podcast. He and his wife Dr. Julie Beischel (a previous guest on SRP) founded the Windbridge Institute. Mark started in psychic research by doing scientific research on ghosts in the San Fransisco Bay Area. Our conversation wandered through several areas of psi research. He is the Managing Editor of Threshold: Journal of Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies, a free, online-only, open access, peer-reviewed journal that disseminates information focusing on interdisciplinary studies of consciousness as it relates to dying, death, and what comes next.

In his book Visualizing Intention, Mark has created images which are evocative of human emotions and intentions. A free PDF of the book is available at the Windbridge Institute’s website and the full color 100 page book is available on Amazon. How does intention affect events and machines? Visualization can positively impact the power of intention.

In addition we spoke about Instrumental Trans-Communication (ITC) which is using mechanical recording apparatus to capture voices of the dead or other non-corporeal beings. Shattered Reality Podcast had one of these spontaneous occurrences in episode #45 Tom Butler and EVPs. We touched upon anomalous photographs wherein orbs or unusual light phenomenon can be seen.

Fahrusha offers her apologies to Dr. Lynn Kelly, a wonderful guest, whose last name she could not remember. 😦

#61 Fahrusha and Kate Valentine Talk About Shattering Reality

Co-hosts of Shattered Reality Podcast

Our guest for this episode took ill at the last moment and we wish him well. So Kate Valentine and Fahrusha decided to discuss their impressions of cryptozoology and the reasons why people in general are interested in the paranormal. Fahrusha related her experience of seeing three unusual black butterflies in three unusual places in one day. (Note: The stopover was at Dulles airport, not Charlotte.) They discussed their ideas about Sasquatch and the unfolding story of possible UFO disclosure by the “To The Stars Academy”. Kate recollected her prior interview with Frank Faschino concerning the Flatwoods Monster.

After sixty episodes, Kate and Fahrusha decided to simply talk to each other. The audio engineer of the show mentioned having seen a large bird with orange skin and a mammalian face. Fahrusha read a very thoughtful letter she had received from listener Freeman about his views on alien intelligence. While not disagreeing with Freeman’s premise both Fahrusha and Kate’s points of view held for wider possibilities, that is, while his model was quite plausible and well constructed, there is room in the Universe for a wider diversity of life. Freeman’s letter can be read below in the comments.

Like many others around the US and the world, we here at Shattered Reality Podcast are waiting patiently for the next word from the New York Times via Leslie Kean et. al. or the members of “To The Stars Academy” on what the Defense Intelligence Agency (D.I.A.) and Robert Bigelow might have discovered about the nature of the phenomena in the skies seen by millions of witnesses across the globe since the beginning of recorded history. These sightings have become more intense since the dawn of the nuclear age.

#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.  

Author John B. Alexander PhD at Machu Picchu, Peru.
