#94 Sociological Research on Remarkable Experiences with Dr. Jim McClenon

Fahrusha was happy to welcome Dr. James McClenon to Shattered Reality Podcast for the second time to discuss the different way that a sociologist researches paranormal and anomalous experiences. He was the guest on an earlier show in which he discusses his excellent book The Entity Letters, A Sociologist on the Trail of a Supernatural Mystery.

We covered a variety of topics from healing to shamanism to UFOs to out of body experiences and extrasensory perception but with a focus on the near death experience (NDE), all from the perspective of sociology. McClenon worked by collecting the extraordinary experiences of individuals by distributing questionaires. He had his students distribute questionaires as well. At first most of the answers came from a rural area in North Carolina where he taught. Later he distributed questionaires from a teaching cruise ship that sailed around the world making stops at a variety of locations. The conclusions he came to were from a different point of view than those of parapsychologists, philosophers or physicists. It was very refreshing to look at these subjects from a differing perspective. Most surprising, perhaps, is his assertion that in other cultures individuals don’t necessarily remember their near death experiences as paradigm changing events that were hyper-real. As a person who has had transcendent experiences but not an NDE, I (Fahrusha) cannot judge this, but it seems counter to other research.

Much of the material we covered on this episode can be found in Dr. McClenon’s book Wondrous Healing.

Fahrusha was thrilled to welcome Dale E. Graff to Shattered Reality Podcast. For several years she has been an appreciative audience to his presentations at symposia of IRVA (International Remote Viewing Association) APP (Applied Precognition Project) and SSE (Society for Scientific Exploration). Dale is the author of two books: Tracks In The Psychic Wilderness (1998) and River Dreams (2000) as well as numerous papers.

Dale E. Graff is a physicist (Drexel) and an aeronautical engineer (Pennsylvania State University). He helped design the Gemini Space Capsule and did pre-planning for the space shuttle. He is an avid outdoorsman who has navigated many Canadian rivers in a canoe, this in spite of having been born a premature baby who was declared dead upon arrival. He was totally determined to defy the odds and still displays great vitality today as he approaches his 85th birthday.

Even as a small child he was a prodigious dreamer and had out of body experiences. After elementary school he began his serious interest in science, which eventually took him to Wright-Paterson Air Force Base where he wrote a forecast document on the Soviet use of ESP research. Through a synchronicity, this lead him to become first a contract manager and later a tasker for government remote viewing projects including Project Stargate which he named.

Today Dale E. Graff is retired from that work, but ardently pursuing dream research and asking important questions about the nature of consciousness. We at Shattered Reality Podcast are hoping to have Dale back soon for Part 2, which will focus on dreaming, the nature of consciousness and how to dream more proficiently.

Note: The anti-fragility proponent mentioned by Fahrusha is Wim Hof.

Listeners who wish to participate in our “Listeners’ Corner” feature are asked to contact Fahrusha (fahrusha@fahrusha.com) and put “Listeners’ Corner” in subject heading.
