The Great Mysteries: Believing, Knowing, & Proving

Growing up, I never thought twice about whether there was an afterlife, or if it was possible to see into the past or the future, or how one could see things and events at a remote distance. My mother was a clairvoyant, as was her mother and her mother’s mother before her. I knew as a child that I had inherited the “second sight.” These things were an everyday experience in my family; I was aware of ghosts, had well documented prophetic dreams, and learned to remotely view people and places at a distance. As a result, when people asked me whether I believed in things such as life after death, the paranormal, distance healing, or the mind’s ability to affect matter, I would tell them, “I don’t believe it, I know it.”

It was only later that I started to wonder about the source of these phenomena, or to look for explanations. I knew that we were all capable of doing the things my family did and I began teaching classes in psychic development. It was in an effort to answer some of my student’s questions that I started reading the research from leading scientists, physicists, and medical doctors. I became familiar with the work of William A. Tiller , Russell Targ, Peter Russell, Robert Moss, Lynne McTaggart, and others. I learned that much of what I had experienced throughout my life could be explained or replicated, and that there existed controlled studies with measurable results. Finally, for every person who asked me, “Where’s your proof?” I could now point to robust research.

In my quest for answers, a few years ago I read Entangled Minds by Dean Radin , and then was fortunate enough to interview the author. Dr. Radin told me about new, marvelous studies being done, and about the organization IONS (Institute of Noetic Science) . Just recently I found out that he has taken another great step to advance the cause — it turns out that he, too, has been plagued by people asking him, “Where’s the proof?” often enough that he has compiled a list of the latest research.Topics covered include distance healing, intention experiments, telepathy and ESP, mediumship, precognition and more.

I believe that whether you are a believer, a knower, or a doubter you will find this list remarkable reading. Still, if I have learned anything over the years it is that “proof”can be a funny thing and that the real naysayers will refuse to believe no matter what they read or see. At the same time, since I and countless others are already having these experiences, it gives me great satisfaction to know there is scientific proof.

When Scientists Have Mystical Experiences

| by Merlian News

What happens when a scientist has a spiritual experience? When the skeptic has his or her eyes opened? When the rational comes up against the seemingly irrational? Lately we’ve been reading serious accounts of just these events. Our favorite new website is www.issc-taste.org . Originally created by Charles Tart, the website has become a real resource and a treasure house of true stories of scientist’s mystical experiences. The stories are fascinating and many readers who have had similar experiences will recognise the details of the events recounted.

UFO Coverage Hits the Mainstream

This week The New York Times reported that two Navy pilots saw “unidentified flying objects” almost daily throughout 2014 into 2015. While the government is not saying that these objects are extraterrestrial in origin, neither do they have an alternative explanation. According to the report, “the objects persisted, showing up at 30,000 feet, 20,000 feet, even sea level. They could accelerate, slow down, and then hit hypersonic speeds.”

Thoughts for Today: Quantum Science, Astrophysics & Orgonomy

| by Michael Mannion

Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Walter Schemp (one of the key creators of fMRI technology) and others are describing a process in nature they call the quantum hologram (QH) which has opened a new field of science, “quantum holography.” In their description, all animate and inanimate objects in nature are emitting radiation as groups of photons–which they call quantum holograms—that contain information about the life history of the objects emitting them. You can find the details of this work at the website of the Dr. Edgar Mitchell Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial and Extraordinary Encounters, www.experiencer.org.

Transforming 4th Dimensional Bodies into 5th Dimensional Beings: Finding the Portal/Gap to Bring about Transformation by Bear Walker

| by Bear Walker

“I was blessed to grow up with the master of ancient wisdom my grandfather, an Anishanabe Elder. His simple wisdom and insight were a huge part of my early training and he never tired of my constant questions… I learned of the sacred teachings of the Medwiwins in the Anishanabe tribe. The closest name or word for Medwiwin in today’s language would be Shaman. So my beloved Grandfather taught me the ancient ways of the medicine wheel which are the basis of all our teachings.”

Blood Red Supermoon Eclipse on January 20-21st

On January 21st the entirety of the North and South American continents will get to experience a total lunar eclipse for the first time in 19 years. Lunar eclipses happen about once a year, but they usually appear partial to most viewers, so this is a rarity. The next time it happens is in 2058. What this means is that you don’t have to travel anywhere to see what will appear to be a huge, red moon. Just go out on the night of January 20th and look up.

Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Celebrates 49th Year

The Mutual UFO Network, MUFON, has been taking UFOs seriously for almost 50 years. The organization has been featured on CNN, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, National Geographic and other networks. Billed as “the world’s oldest and largest UFO phenomenon investigative body,” the site covers news, sightings, and research, as well as holding member events and conventions. One of their key aims is to elevate the field from anecdotal observations to science based data and research.

The Cosmic Hologram by Jude Currivan Wins 2017 Silver Nautilus Award

We are thrilled to share the news that Dr. Jude Currivan, a great friend and contributor to Merlian News, has recently won the 2017 Silver Nautilus Award for Science and Cosmology, for her wonderful book, The Cosmic Hologram. As we wrote in our book review last year: “Dr. Currivan has a remarkable ability to synthesize a wide variety of detailed scientific input and then extrapolate from that data a lucid theory of an “informational universe” that may bridge the gap, or reconcile, the theories of relativity and quantum physics.
