    Debate: Nihilism is an Illogical Philosophy

    Indeed, this is the curse that is depression. I have suffered from this before, so I am all but familiar with how debilitating it is. At some point, you lose the will to do anything aside from basic bodily functions. For anyone who has not gone through it, words cannot describe how hopeless you...

    Debate: Nihilism is an Illogical Philosophy

    I thought about this for quite some time, and have concluded that the entire philosophy of nihilism is an illogical contradiction. Let's dive into this and see what you think. People that are nihilistic believe that life has no inherent meaning or purpose, nothing truly matters, and there can be...

    On another note, though Nolan's research is potentially groundbreaking, I'm not entirely sure how much I trust Linda Moulton Howe. I'm not saying that she's making it up, but some of the things that she reports just stretches the bounds of credibility. Stargate portals, government documents...

    A Controversial Theory of Ancient Monuments

    Hello, everyone. I have had an extended interest in ancient monuments and ancient history since much of it is still a mystery. One thing that I have observed through the study of these monuments is that many of them exhibit strange electromagnetic effects. For instance, scientists find that the...

    I don't know how one could continue arguing for materialism after all that we have discovered with particle physics.

    It's odd that this should be the case, as we know that the world we see is not actually what is there, and the concept of solidity is entirely an illusion, suggested by the Planck length. Matter only appears to be solid because of how close particles appear in superposition but is in fact not...

    Unfortunately, however, skeptics for some reason are worshipped as gods in today's world. Very rarely, do I ever see anyone arguing the skeptics on their own skepticism; very sad the state that public education is in: turning us all into little more than biological androids. That being said...

    I think part of the problem with obscure research is that it's notoriously hard to conduct, yet alone, to convince skeptics. The term skepticism, as it was used by Diagones, has been completely bastardized to debunking exercises. Science was never meant to be a debunking exercise, but to explore...

    I see your point. It is certainly true that a certain level of pragmatism is necessary. I think Alex makes a good point, too, if the medium claims that they are getting information from a dead person and this has been independently verified and controlled for, the medium really would have no...

    This is a very interesting reply. You seem to resonate with the ideas of Plato and Stuart Hameroff, both of which suggest the same thing. That there are shadows of things, i.e. Plato's Theory of Forms, and that certain constructs are perhaps inherent to spacetime, suggesting idealism. You will...

    Suggestion for Show?

    Sorry, that is Tiller. I would argue that he makes a decent case for a spiritual connection to consciousness. Buddhism teaches after all that our intentions have effects on the world around us, and his research indeed seems to be showing this. It also does beg the question: what exactly is...

    It would be wonderful if it were possible to study terminal lucidity in great depth, as it may have much to reveal about memory and a possible cure for Altzheimer's, but the whole thing is a mystery that might not ever be penetrated.

    In fact, I reckon that we could have an entire forum argument tearing apart aspects of memory for hours. Still, no one knows why we remember the things we do, or how remarkably, some people can literally remember every single detail of every day.

    Your view on reincarnation is interesting. Regardless of whether or not it can be considered a provable thing, the fact that we should be able to access information that we cannot typically know is still incredible, and would add about a million more questions to such things as memory alone.

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by an abstract example. I just question whether mediums are in actual conversation with the dead, or if they are exhibiting characteristics of psi that have been demonstrated before, such as telepathy and psychokinesis. It appears that even though the effect...

    Suggestion for Show?

    If I may make another interview suggestion: Bill Tier. He is a researcher from Stanford University that has demonstrated the impact of intention on matter with over 50 published research papers to support his findings. His research as well has lead him to believe that there is more to...

    Thoughts on Robert Lanza's Theory of Biocentrism?

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone can comment on their thoughts on Robert Lanza's Theory of Biocentrism and whether or not Alex might have him on as a potential guest? He has many interesting ideas about consciousness, including that conciousness, is fundamental and not a secondary feature of the...

    Indeed, I think we should be suspicious of anyone who claims to have absolute answers.
