    Tricia Barker, Life After Near Death Experience Ain’t Always Easy |469|

    That was lovely. Imma going away and process it:D

    Andrew Holecek, Lucid Dreaming and Yoga |459|

    Reminds me of what happened to Rick Strassman over his DMT research. After initially having the support of his spiritual homies, he was then roundly and publicly condemned when he wanted to further the clinical research. Religion - any religion - can indeed become a straitjacket.

    Jurgen Ziewe is bringing Virtual Reality to the Spiritual Experience |465|

    I really liked this interview. It brought some much-needed perspective into a week fraught with nonsense. Thank you, Alex.

    Yeah, sorry about that. I just kind of grabbed a sub-topic and ran with it.:) As you were.

    William Ramsey, The Satanic Panic Head Fake |463|

    I didn't find anything strident about your reply, to be honest - and I guess we're allowed to disagree, even vehemently:) But yes, I do use the Tarot in a pseudo-psychological way, exploring my own (and occasionally others') connection to and interaction with the divine. I really haven't seen a...

    It's not objective at all, it's entirely a subjective process. The core question can be put in different terms in serial readings, and perhaps a slightly different take on the reply will be had. The question can be put in seemingly the same terms and a different aspect may present itself. The...

    I think the answer to that is that the process is not random. The reader, if properly hooked in, is shuffling the cards in accordance with what the answer would be. The good readers, anyway. I don't consider myself as adept as all that - although the process might not be available to my mundane...

    Sure, I can try. In my 35-odd years practising Paganism, I've used many Tarot decks. (I started with the Morgan-Greer and then tried a half-dozen or so more when I lost that one and settled on the Rider-Waite). In my experience, the connection made to the psi field/deities is made through the...

    Tarot's just a tool, though. There's far more import to the interaction between the human and the field than there is to the deck. I use Rider-Waite mostly, but I do love the Morgan-Greer also.

    That may be the only way to preserve the earth for all living beings.

    Joseph Atwill, Why the Bible is Pro-Roman |464|

    Nice interview, Alex. I find Atwill's ideas very plausible, but I have never been able to take the Bible on faith - and believe me I gave it a good try for some years. The incoherence of the book has always bothered me, and so I'm willing to give a respectful listen to anyone who can attempt to...

    Not so much about the legality and rights of adults wanting to choose to identify with a different gender, for me, but more about men demanding to enter women's private spaces, compete with women in sports and take positions created for women in, for example, politics. I actually do have trans...

    ..or just "women", really.

    Third wave feminism seems to stand for the right of men to call themselves lesbians.

    Your excellent reply reminds me somewhat of the political horseshoe theory. I have found politics getting confusing for me lately. A classic liberal myself, I find myself siding with many on the so-called right on many issues - notably the transgender theory.

    Well said. That tends to be my view on the matter also.

    Tricia Robertson, 30 Years of After-death Communication Research |462|

    As the grandchild of Scottish Calvinists, living in Johannesburg, I thank you for this. The society around me here is one of the most egregious examples of the imbalance, yet I, too, cleave to the Protestant work ethic and Calvinist attitudes about money. Even though it's maybe not strictly...

    Thanks for that - a really interesting read.

    Not very seriously - but I have to consider given options and that appears to be one of the most commonly proffered. I agree that it sounds a tad desperate, coming from the Usual Suspects.
