K9, it may be my imagination, but did you before just have links to videos? I've listened to/watched one of those video links here:


Which I think is a great interview with Dean Radin. I'll forgive him his uncritical acceptance of "climate change" at around 57 minutes. Even Radin can be prone at times to accept dogmatism at face value, I suppose!

Julie Beischel of the Windbridge Institute is interviewed in this "Cosmos in You" broadcast:

http://www.cosmosinyou.com/episodes/dr-julie-beischel-science-of-after-death-communication

IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:
  • 3 Types of most common messages communicated by deceased loved ones
  • A description of the continuing bonds grief model and why it is so effective
  • The different research programs used to study mediums
  • How common spontaneous after death communication actually is and what we need to do to hear it
  • The difference between a psychic and a medium

For some reason, I couldn't get tge links to work, and they wouldn't show up as videos. Thank you for posting the interview that I was trying to post earlier! ;;/?

Recently, the SSE posted Dean Radin's 2014 conference talk. As far as I know, this is Dean's latest and truly greatest talk about his double-slit experiments. It's a must-view history that includes side-by-side comparisons of test-subject vs. control results for each experiment. You can't look at the human vs. control differences without wondering why on earth nobody else is doing similar research.

Mind-Matter Interaction Experiments Involving Light

Dean Radin (Invited Speaker)
Institute of Noetic Sciences

Many types of physical systems have been used in experiments investigating mind-matter interactions (MMI). A smaller number of studies have used light as the target of mental influence. Studies involving light are especially useful for studying MMI because light reveals behavior that is distinctively quantum in nature. In particular, it displays wave-like or particle-like behavior depending on how the light is observed. In physics, “observation” is generally regarded as an irreversible amplification of a microscopic event, but there are other forms of observation, including subjective awareness. This observation-dependent effect provides a unique opportunity for studying the meaning of observation and the possible role of consciousness in the physical world.

This talk briefly reviews the relevant literature on MMI experiments using optical systems. Then it focuses on a series of 15 experiments conducted in our laboratory over the past 5 years, all involving optical interferometers. The first study involved a Michelson interferometer, the next ten used a continuous beam Young-style double-slit interferometer, and the last four involved a single-photon double-slit system. The cumulative evidence from these studies suggests that mental attention acts in a manner analogous to an inefficient physical detector; that is, when the detector is operating it causes light to slightly shift from wave- to particle-like behavior. But unlike a physical detector, the mind has the capacity to turn this "detector" on or off through the modulation and direction of attention. I will speculate on this and other interpretations of the experimental results.

Stephen Braude returns to New Thinking Allowed in the first of a two-part interview about macro-PK. Some of the topics discussed are:
  • physical mediumship in general.
  • the phenomena associated with Daniel Dunglas Home.
  • the question of agency (are the phenomena caused by discarnate entities or the mediums themselves?).
  • the levitations and extreme asceticism of Joseph of Copertino.
  • the extent to which PK phenomena are in fact rare.
  • the psychodynamics of PK phenomena.
Macro-Psychokinesis, Part One: Physical Mediumship with Stephen E. Braude

All in all, a great interview. I'm really looking forward to part two.

Thanks for posting these, K9. The mention of spirit materialisation is a step too far for me even though I fully accept survival. Doesn't mean it doesn't happen of course.
You're welcome, Tim. Yeah, I know there is stuff here that pushes the envelope.
