    Terje Simonsen, The Future of Parapsychology |496|

    The future of parapsychology is, I hope, helping people to realize what human potential really means. David Moorjani said in an interview w/ his wife, Anita Moorjani, that so-called paranormal is in reality just normal. Practically everyone I've gotten to know pretty well or at least those...

    Richard Smoley, Does Magic Work? |495|

    Sheesh, Atone. I wish I was as certain as this subject as you are. I think magic is that area of "supernormal abilities" that various mystics & sages warn us about. Li Hongzhi says that using supernormal powers are forbidden for its disruptive influence among everyday people, i.e., common...

    Richard Smoley, Does Magic Work? |495|

    What is fascinating about the subject of magic is its interwoven presence in so many areas. The Bible account says J.C. walked on water b/c people have to see miracles to believe. Humanity made a shift from seeing most everything as supernaturally influenced or caused to the other extreme. A...

    Bruce Greyson, Near-Death Experience Pioneer |494|

    The heart element is one of the things that distinguishes Dr. Greyson. In an IANDS address he gave, he kept choking up as he recounted some of the encounters he'd had over the years as an NDE researcher. If we can all keep that kind of emotional connection to the work we do, what a different...

    After I had been using Sacred Acoustics for a while, I suddenly became aware that my dreams & the brief episodes I was having when I could finally quiet the mind fully were identical. Does this mean meditation is just learning to dream awake? What else can I expect if I cancel thinking for longer?

    I see your point, but as Alex says, it has implications for the future of this science. What I experience & hear about over & over is that we'll never have a complete picture using the mind & senses. Full knowledge is accessed in the silence that is unshakeable but ever new. That's a...

    I'd like to ask Greyson about mind as matter, & matter as mind. Li Hongzhi states this as true. He appears to think that consciousness or spirit is beyond mind.

    When I first began practicing Monroe's Gateway Training for OBEs, I was faced w/ the same question: why can't everyone have OBEs? Why do some of us have to learn how? Another phenomenon is the experience of Kali Ma or the Mother. I was told by a devotee that he climbed in a box just like...

    I undoubtedly agree w/ you. It's so important to address these issues for so many people; as a lot of people have noticed, there's a building openness & acceptance of the 'extended consciousness realm.' Skeptiko was a great way for me to stop flirting w/ atheism of the Dawkins type & focus on...

    David Brody, Romans in America, Beyond Pre-Columbian Silliness |493|

    What this reminds me of is the old story that J.C. survived the crucifixion b/c he was drugged to appear dead. Once his inner circle got him out of the tomb, he escaped to Japan where he lived out his life, which I have had heard has a fair number of followers who support this idea. What is...

    David Brody, Romans in America, Beyond Pre-Columbian Silliness |493|

    Iaaa! Don't I know what ye r talking aboot! I grew up in Abilene, TX., a church on every corner & an AA meeting place in between. There was this tiny shack that had this tremendous sign on it: The Church of The Living Water. What all the free market stuff led to was this class type of thing...

    Robert Bonomo, Follow the Money to the Non-Dual Path |491|

    Chester, you've got a good heart & that's half the battle as far as I'm concerned. Have you watched Life of Brian or Bonomo's Twilight of the Archons? Your comment about following your own path fits right in w/ the segment of Brian telling all his devotees that you don't need to follow anyone...

    Got it, John. Just sent you an email.

    Thanks for the link, Alex! It's probably an undiscovered gold mine of all the people who chose to just help a few students individually.

    Actually, I was sort of playing the devil's advocate re: Master. If he was prone to 'magick tricks,' they were probably pretty rarely used. At worse, maybe he was a little like Arthur Ford, whose admirers wrote about his extensive stash of obituaries & other research. At best, I think he was...
