    Quickly. All data and no analysis - no context. It would take me weeks to go through that mess and a figure out whether it finally agrees/disagrees with my position - and whether I need to change my POV. I am pretty comfortable with my own extensive and somewhat more organised inquiry. You can...

    Trump Consciousness

    You can always find these claims. If you examined your US community you would find a similar tolerance of some of the more dangerous extremists views. That proves nothing. You seem to be on a fear and hate bender against Islam. That is mercifully a minority POV. Do bear in mind that the vast...

    Upcoming Interview: Hybrid Humans: Scientific Evidence of Our 800,000-Year-Old Alien Legacy by Daniella Fenton and Bruce R. Fenton

    You have to wonder why anyone gives a damn about uninformed or ill-informed POVs. The answer to the question "Do UFOs exist?" is either "Yes" or "I don't know". No other answer has meaning or value - other to indicate stupidity or arrogant stupidity. I struggle to imagine what kind of reasoning...

    Claire Broad, Psychic Mediumship and Science |427|

    Fair point. But please bear in mind that the faith of Christianity is predicated on the supposed revelation that [so long as you are obedient to the dogma of the faith] you will endure after death. While that's a complete distortion of the whole crucifixion thing it should explain why people...

    Claire Broad, Psychic Mediumship and Science |427|

    This is a good point, David. Science is not the arbiter of the real. In fact it deals with only a small portion of reality. Love is probably the most pervasive theme in our culture these days - and where is the science of love? Nowhere. And yet we struggle in our various degrees of darkness and...

    Howe about direct personal experience?

    Trump Consciousness

    TES, while I will dispute your imputation that you mean all progressives, I will heartily concur with your general sentiment. I remain defiantly left of centre, but I have long ago abandoned my once deep affection for leftist politics. This may be a fiction of growing older [and wiser?], but I...

    I think, Andy, we need to be careful here. There is, I agree, no equivalent to 'Islamic terrorism'. This is a modern phenomenon employing technology not available to times when 'Christians' perpetrated their own form of terror. However I am not so sure your term "Islamists" is fair -m unless you...

    Eric, I am so very grateful I do not live in your reality.

    That's an interesting interpretation of Trump. I can see why you think it. But from my perspective its a very thin slice of a vey large consequence pie - and probably the only bit that is palatable.

    Claire Broad, Psychic Mediumship and Science |427|

    It should become normal at a low level, with the odd spike. Once you get beyond the surprise and novelty the need for sharp conscious experiences seems to fall away. I have given up on trying to figure out why things happen, and just go with what happens. I try to mess with things too. For...

    I agree. How do you relate this thought to Trump?

    Claire Broad, Psychic Mediumship and Science |427|

    So much depends on what you call 'Science'. If you look at ethnographic research, for example, there is abundant evidence for psi phenomena. But that does not satisfy the determined materialist who will argue that ethnography is not proper science and what is gathered is not proper evidence...

    Politics

    With respect, this is not a reason to support Trump, given his long litany of deficits. It was T who pulled out of the agreement with Iran on fake pretences to begin with. As an Australian I am 100% in favour of the US desisting from its military adventures, and I also am in agreement with T on...

    Politics

    I think you are missing the point here. It is better to say that an event in known in advance rather than 'planned'. And this knowing in advance happens sometimes well in advance of the event - sufficient to ask why it could not be circumvented. Maybe on some level we have the capacity to change...

    Interesting show. I was very much in tune with Claire's take on things. But i think she misunderstands the nature of hierarchy in this context. It is not an organisational one based on ego - but one of relative competence or refinement.

    David Mathisen, Do Ancient Star Myths Tell the Same Story? |426|

    Maybe David sees coherence through the fog of distortion? The NT seems to blend esoteric knowledge with almost petty ideological distortions that cannot over run the core mythos. Unfortunately so often the distortions are relied upon as authority and the mythos is ignored. I would think that...

    It is interesting, David, how you express this - "science has simply pushed outside the boundaries of what it knows". It has become not-science - propaganda driven by commercial, political and ideological interests. Truth is no longer the goal - but compliance and containment. That's a huge...

    Trump Consciousness

    The interesting thing is that many ardent Bigfoot hunters would also deny psi and the afterlife. The great propaganda victory of 'Science' has been to assert that it is the arbiter of the real - by which it means the material realm. It isn't. There isn't any argument about that that is worth...
