    Dr. Dean Radin Brings Real Magic to the Psi Lab |377|

    I think true creativity is NOT consciously copying/modifying something that already exists. Rather, I like the concept of the Muse (which is where the term music comes from), a force of creativity greater than ourselves. Even when a musician is performing a cover of someone else's song, they can...

    Dr. Rupert Sheldrake Brings Science to Spiritual Practices |376|

    Of course, this shouldn't cause anyone to think he isn't passionate about his positions. I wish I could keep my cool as well. Reminds me of the late Fred Rogers (a Christian whom I admire). The Dali Lama is another one who never acts threatened or reacts defensively. Of course, this doesn't mean...

    Dr. Penny Sartori, Are NDEs All Light and Love? |374|

    I think that this shows the real source of fear is within ourselves, for better or worse. Anybody that has had anxiety attacks knows this to be true. You can be sitting peacefully on a beautiful shore and suddenly have an irrational fear. Where did it come from? Transversely, you could be in a...

    Finnish Mystic’s Visions of Afterlife Match NDE Research

    Whatever awaits us, I'm pretty sure it doesn't involve Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates checking to make sure we believed in the correct religion. I'm also pretty sure there won't be any Devil dragging us down into some permanent Hell realm either. I don't believe a loving god would have any...

    Christopher Knowles, Are Occult Symbols Present in Science? |365|

    I agree with Chris about the presence of occult symbolism in our culture. I think what it all means is up for interpretation. Sometimes he reminds me of crazy fundamentalist preacher, though. He’s smarter than that. This shit is man made anyway. I’m a former fundy Christian that left it long...

    Christopher Knowles, Are Occult Symbols Present in Science? |365|

    I agree completely. I was trying to understand Alex and Chris’s take.

    Christopher Knowles, Are Occult Symbols Present in Science? |365|

    Also, what do you think of Manly P. Hall or similar folks?

    Christopher Knowles, Are Occult Symbols Present in Science? |365|

    I get a little confused by this topic. Does occult = evil to Chris/Alex? Aren't they both friends with Gordon White? He uses medieval grimoires, which you guys linked to Satan in the podcast. Is the occult only evil when the big bad corporate global overlords use it, but not chaos or other...

    Joseph Atwill, Why is the Deep State Interested in Psychedelics? |364|

    To me this all smacks of "The Hippies couldn't have been right about anything" BS. What does Atwill think of the claims that the whole "Jesus Freak" thing was just a way of getting Hippie kids to move away from the political left?

    Pizzagate. Plus, Ex-FBI Undercover Agent Bob Hamer |357|

    I think somebody thinks about pedophilia way too much. Why is it that when a politician gets caught with young boys they always seem to be religious right? I have no idea what Pizzagate has to do with consciousness or psi.

    Pizzagate. Plus, Ex-FBI Undercover Agent Bob Hamer |357|

    Sorry Alex, but I think you and others just believe this stuff because you want to. None of this would amount to anything in a court of law. But for the sake of argument, wouldn't Trump's participation in Lolita express put him in the same camp if both are true? Why pick on Hillary? BTW, I was...

    David Fitzgerald Spots Christian Myths, Misses Atheist Myths |356|

    All religions, at least those based on authoritarianism, started as a cult. If you've ever talked to someone currently in a "cult" they never characterize it as such, much in the same way we don't characterize the USA as "The great Satan" as fundamentalist Muslims do.

    David Fitzgerald Spots Christian Myths, Misses Atheist Myths |356|

    It's interesting that you come to that conclusion from that observation. For me, it shows that Christianity does not have the life changing power attributed to it. IOW, people are kind, compassionate, wise, ignorant, selfish, etc. independent of Christianity, at least the kind of church-going...

    Jay Dyer, What’s the Endgame for Atheists? |352|

    Living proof that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Those who know the most are the most humble.

    Jay Dyer, What’s the Endgame for Atheists? |352|

    Ah yes, Gnosticism in a nutshell.. My take is that Jehovah was always the asshole, but you can't pin that on JC, unless you like the more fire & brimstone sections in the canonized gospels.
