Reece Girven – The Universe and The Psyche

March 21, 2015

Reece Girven discusses some of the ideas in his book The Universe and The Psyche. What is the origin of the Universe? Was it created in a Big Bang, or might it always have existed? We are told that matter creates consciousness, but could it be that consciousness creates matter? What can we learn from the patterns in physical reality? From DNA to galaxies, spirals appear everywhere in nature – do they hold a key to understanding? In choosing to disregard the non-material, modern science has lost 95 per cent of the Universe to dark matter, dark energy and other convoluted theories. By shifting our perspective on reality, what can we learn about the nature of the 95 per cent? Is it possible that the fundamental nature of reality is information?

Scientific materialism tells us that the life arose randomly, without purpose, and without meaning, and yet many ancient traditions speak of the Universe and all life in it as imbued with both, and ordered by a higher intelligence that some call God. With all the murder and mayhem carried out in the name of religion, it is easy to understand why so many resist the idea of such a higher intelligence. But if we set aside the prejudices attached to both the scientific and the mystical views and merge the best of both models, a more complete picture of reality begins to emerge. Our planet stands on the brink of disaster and many of its conflicts stem from fundamentally differing worldviews. But could reconciliation between the scientific and the mystical, material and non-material, offer hope for our long-term future?

Graham Nicholls – Navigating the Out Of Body Experience: Part Two

March 13, 2015

Graham Nicholls discusses his books Avenues of the Human Spirit and Navigating the Out of Body Experience. The talk includes the nature of the out of body experience, the science behind it, and the state of current research into OBEs. Out of body experiences can be self-induced, but can they be controlled? Are out of body experiences always positive, and might they ultimately have a purpose? What might they tell us about the nature of consciousness and the possibility of life after death? Other subjects touched upon include remote viewing, near death experiences, reincarnation, quantum entanglement and the notion of extended mind and collective consciousness, and the role of sound in altered states of consciousness. We also discuss the skeptic community and their role in denying and debunking non-material forces and psychic phenomena in general.

Randall S. Powers & Steven Konkoly – Practical Prepping: No Apocalypse Required

March 2, 2015

Randall S. Powers and Steven Konkoly discuss their book Practical Prepping: No Apocalypse Required. Prepping – or preparedness – is simply about taking steps in your own life which could potentially be of great benefit in the event of a crisis or disaster situation. It has, however, become embroiled with the popular clichés of survivalism and images of groups or individuals holed up in armed redoubts with a million cans of beans and enough weapons to start a war. Back in the real world, beyond popular post-apocalyptic fantasies, there are many often more mundane events which have the potential to seriously disrupt our daily lives. Terrorism, economic meltdown, natural disasters and pandemics such as Ebola and avian flu regularly hit the headlines. But even something as simple as a prolonged power outage or severe winter freeze can – and has – left thousands of citizens on the back foot with inadequate supplies of food, water and other essentials with which to ride out such an emergency.

Dave McGowan – Murder, Mystery, Mayhem: The Dark Heart of the Hippie Dream

February 20, 2015

Dave McGowan discusses his book Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon: Laurel Canyon, Covert Ops & the Dark Heart of the Hippie Dream. In the 1960s and early 1970s, California’s Laurel Canyon was a magical place where a dizzying array of musicians congregated to create the soundtrack to those turbulent times. Members of bands such The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, The Eagles, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Steppenwolf, Captain Beefheart, Alice Cooper and The Doors, along with singer/songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Carole King and Jackson Browne, lived, loved, and jammed together in a seemingly idyllic community nestled in the Hollywood Hills.

Peter Jones – Wilhelm Reich and Forbidden Science

February 15, 2015

Peter Jones discusses some of the issues raised in his book Artificers of Fraud. Wilhelm Reich (1897 – 1957) was an Austrian psychoanalyst, a member of the second generation of psychoanalysts after Sigmund Freud, and one of the most radical figures in the history of psychiatry. He was the author of several influential books, most notably Character Analysis (1933) and The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933). His writing influenced generations of intellectuals and during the 1968 student uprisings in Paris and Berlin, students scrawled his name on walls and threw copies of The Mass Psychology of Fascism at the police.

David Fideler – Restoring the Soul of the World

February 8, 2015

David Fideler discusses his book Restoring the Soul of the World. For millennia the world was seen as a creative, interconnected web of life in which we participated deeply. But when the world came to be described as a lifeless, clock-like mechanism during the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries, life and intelligence came to be seen as existing only in human beings, and nature came to be increasingly viewed as an object of exploitation that primarily exists to meet human needs. This also led to a profound sense of alienation, since human beings no longer had any real bond with the world. In Restoring the Soul of the World, Fideler throws light on the unexamined connections between science, religion, and culture, and how our deepest worldviews have influenced the ways we relate to the world, other people, and our innermost selves.

Aaron Franz – History of a Time to Come: Transhumanism and Popular Culture – Part Two

January 30, 2015

In a follow-up to our previous interview Transhumanism: Man’s Scientific Rise to Godhood, Aaron Franz returns to discuss transhumanism and popular culture. Whether prophecy, predictive programming or outright propaganda, cinema, television and literature both past and present are rife with visions of a future in which humanity is transformed, enslaved or even annihilated by technology run amok. Science fiction, fantasy and other speculative forms foresee a time when robots, cyborgs and genetically engineered supermen manipulate the masses, artificial intelligence arises to rival and even surpass human intelligence, and humanity finally merges with machines to achieve Godlike immortality. It’s a dream to some, a nightmare to others. From Brave New World to Blade Runner, from The Machine to Metropolis, and from Star Trek to The Six Million Dollar Man, we explore the hopes, fears, threats and promises of a future in which being human may no longer be enough.
