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.

#24 Kathleen Marden Experiencer Investigations

Kathleen Marden and her book: "Captured"

Kathleen Marden and her book: “Captured”

Listen HERE.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are pleased to welcome Kathleen Marden, who is currently heading MUFON’s experiencer investigations. Marden is the niece of two of the most famous abduction experiencers in US history, Betty and Barney Hill. She, with Stanton Friedman, chronicled their story in the book, Captured, The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience. This book has been optioned for a movie.

Kathleen Marden has written another book, The Alien Abduction Files, with experiencer Denise Stoner. She was the recipient of MUFON’s 2012 “Ufologist of the Year” award.

We talk in depth with Ms. Marden about her research into alien abductions and experiencer reports.

Errata: The author and book that slipped Fahrusha’s mind was John A. Keel and the Mothman Prophesies. Apologies to the late Mr. Keel, as we here at “Shattered Reality Podcast” are big fans.

Kate Valentine and Fahrusha are pleased and excited to welcome John B. Alexander, Ph.D. to “Shattered Reality”. In the intro to our podcast “paradigm shifting” is prominently mentioned and Dr. Alexander is nothing if not a paradigm shifting individual! His life is so varied and fascinating that it would have taken many more hours to ask him about all of his interests.

Dr. Alexander has written an engrossing book, UFOs, Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities dealing with his adventures in attempting to find out from the inside what the government knows about UFOs. He contends that disclosure has already taken place, UFOs are unarguably real but humanity is asking the wrong questions. His book is comprehensive and well written with a great many dates and details. Dr. Alexander has written a number of other engaging books which can be accessed at his website.

Born in New York, Dr. Alexander entered the army in 1956. He commanded a Special Forces A team in Viet Nam and Thailand and started the Advanced Theoretical Physics Project studying UFOs while still in the Army. After he retired from the Service with the rank of Colonel of Infantry, he worked in the field of non-lethal weaponry at Los Alamos  National Labs. He has a Ph.D. in Thanatology, the scientific study of death and the practices associated with it, including the study of the needs of the terminally ill and their families. He is also involved with studying shamanism around the world. There is so much more we would have liked to ask Dr. Alexander. Hopefully he will come back to speak with us again.
