The Blending of Science and Religion



Dead Sea Scroll Exhibit, June 12 - July 5, 1965
Garrison Theater, Claremont Colleges, California





For 2,000 years a collection of nearly 900 ancient manuscripts, some in fragments lay concealed in the Qumran desert caves near the Dead Sea. It is believed that the Essenes had hidden the manuscripts in the caves, and they were not discovered until 1947.







Recently I read about the Dead Sea Scrolls and the controversy that appears to be going on over an exhibit in Toronto, Canada. And that brought to mind when I attended the Dead Sea Scroll Exhibit years ago that was held June 12 - July 5, 1965 at Garrison Theater at the Claremont Colleges in Southern California. The exhibition was arranged by the Smithsonian Institution in cooperation with the Jordanian government and the Palestine Archaeological Museum.

For many years I lived a few short miles from the Claremont School of Theology and the Claremont Colleges, a consortium of five undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions in Southern California. And there is located the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center (ABMC), a non profit corporation whose purpose is to serve as an archive for accurate copies of original source material of the Jewish and Christian Bibles. Their mission is preservation and research while seeking to foster greater accuracy in textual work on the Bible.

The ABMC holds the world’s most extensive collection of Dead Sea Scroll images and they distribute both digital and photographic images of the Dead Sea Scrolls in cooperation with the Israel Antiquities Authority.

While reading about their program I was interested to see that in 1994, ABMC collaborated with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL) in Pasadena, California, a few miles from Claremont, to use state of the art digital image technology to elucidate previously illegible text on the ancient and deteriorating Dead Sea Scrolls.

NASA’s Dr. Gregory Bearman used multi-spectral digital imaging to identify the region within the spectrum of light in which text could or would be legible.

Apparently, in visible light both the ink and the blackened animal hide reflected equal amounts of light and therefore there was no contrast and the text was invisible. Dr. Bearman discovered the text would become visible at 900 nanometers into the infrared as a contrast occurred between the ink and animal hide.

In a 1993 press release Dr. Bearman stated in regards to the use of a solid-state sensor and computer image-processing in examining the fragments from the 2,000 year old manuscripts, "This approach allows us to see details that are invisible using traditional photography on film. Archeology is just beginning to learn about digital imaging technology, and it should prove to be a very powerful tool."

According to the ABMC website, “In its climate-controlled vault, the ABMC preserves one of the world’s largest photographic archives of manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament, or Tanakh) and the New Testament Scholars and students worldwide consult our collections, which can be used either on-site or by Interlibrary Loan. The ABMC also curates the films of the International Greek New Testament Project (IGNTP), distributing them to assigned collators in North America and Europe.”

They also house the John C. Trevor Collection. Dr. John C. Trevor was the first photographer of the Dead Sea Scrolls in February and March, 1948 . His photographs are still considered the best photographs of the Scrolls. In 1981, Dr. Trever gifted his extensive collection to the Claremont School of Theology, which in turn placed them in the ABMC’s custodial care.

When I saw the exhibit I do remember feeling awe in seeing the manuscripts and realizing these scrolls had been hidden away for safety, no doubt, for centuries and may have contained historical facts, opinions, and wisdom.

While science and religion have most often been in opposition, in this case, they married, and that marriage is very good for humanity, for we may have learned something we did not know before as the hidden text came into the “light.”

It would be a few years later before I encountered other things even older, about twice as old. In fact, the oldest living things on earth. And that was the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest of the White Mountains of eastern California. Some of those pines, with their gnarled and twisted branches and trunks, have for more than 4,600 years, fought the harshest of weather conditions to maintain life.

I wrote an article about the Ancient Bristlecone on my website if you'd like to learn more. And my poem about the ancient trees:



Bristlecone


O ancient Tree so gnarled and bold,
How strong you stand, how long you hold,
'gainst bitter winds across your face–
All perils that contest your place–
So much of life that you have seen,
So much of strife where man has been,
From tools of stone to fossiled bones,
You've seen the flames, you've heard the groans;
The Patriarchs have come and gone,
While you, O Tree, have struggled on.
To understand Eternity,
I need but talk with thee, O Tree.

Pride and Forgiveness




It is important to forgive but not in the way we might first think of it. It is important to our well being, much the same as the impact that our angry or negative thoughts can have on us, as written about in my last post. Forgiveness is about reaching the point of peace within ourselves and has nothing to do with anyone else. It is about letting go.

The book, The Mastery of Love was brought to my attention. Although I have heard of Don Miguel Ruiz, Mexican New Age Author, Shaman, I had not read his book.

This chapter excerpt from his book is a reminder of how difficult it is to forgive. Love is the central focus of life but it begins with loving our self.

The path to healing: the truth, forgiveness and self love.

Our Thoughts and Their Power

“Be vigilant; guard your mind against negative thoughts.” ~Buddha (563-483 B.C.)


In our book, Whispers From the Soul: The Divine Dance of Consciousness, my husband, Don Pendleton and I wrote a chapter about the body, mind, soul connection and the scientific research being done in that area. We called the chapter The Journey Inward. We wrote about the use of meditation for healing, as shown and suggested by professionals such as Dr. Elisabeth Kubler Ross, Dr. O. Carl Simonton, Dr. Bernie Seigel, and others. We wrote about addictions and disorders and how body memory can be the root cause. (And even soul memories of past lives). We wrote how the body was an information highway and within our bodies is a vast communications network.

It has long been understood that the brain communicates with the body but recent medical research is now showing that messenger molecules, the route through which intelligence moves through the body, are intimately linked to every cell and that a never ending stream of information in both directions is moving between the mind and body. The vehicles of this intercellular communications system are ordinary chemical elements such as peptides, endorphines and neuropeptides and their receptors and they are found not only in the brain but also in the immune system, the endocrine system and throughout the body. The communication is accomplished by the bonding of the peptide to the receptors which are dynamically attached to the surface of every cell in the body. The entire body is operated by these messenger molecules. Moreover, Professor of Neurobiology David Felten, M.D., PhD, of the University of Rochester School of Medicine and his wife, Suzanne Felton, PhD, are credited with discovering that nerve fibers permeate the immune system and are in direct contact with the immune cell receptors, allowing for cross-talk between the nervous system and the immune system. The understanding that the immune system directly communicates with the mind has startling implications when we are also told that even emotions and feelings are firmly linked into this same communications highway.

Neuroscientist Candace Pert, PhD, at Rutgers has reached that same understanding: certain neuropeptides and their receptors produce the physical manifestation of emotions.



In other words, emotions must be regarded as both physical and mental when we understand that there is intelligence, or mind, in every cell of the body. Emotions affect physiology and vice-versa, and this is the route through which mood-altering drugs have their effect and conversely how emotional states can greatly effect the physiology of the body. Dr. Pert explains, "We can measure the chemical reaction that gives rise to an emotion, but we can't look under a microscope and say, 'That's grief.' We can say that a particular peptide, for example, can create euphoria not only in humans, but also in rats and simpler animals. In other words, we can measure behavior...the receptor is the interface where behavior meets biochemistry."

Those comments were made in an interview with Bill Moyers for his Healing And The Mind, in which Dr. Pert went on to describe the mind as "some kind of enlivening energy in the information realm throughout the brain and body that enables the cells to talk to each other, and the outside to talk to the whole organism."

Practical applications of this body wisdom is being done with kinesiology, the science of human muscle movements. A skilled kinesiologist uses muscle testing techniques which can isolate particular muscles, organs or nerves for the treatment of various physical aliments. This is often related intimately to acupuncture meridians and the lymphatic system. If a specific muscle is weak or out of balance, it has been shown that the particular organ systems which share the lymphatic and meridian pathways with that muscle can be impacted. By restoring the proper flow of vital energies to the effected system, the organ that is sharing that system will receive relief as the proper balance returns.

About twenty-five years ago we watched a demonstration of the power of thought in a video by Chiropractor Dr. John Thie, who developed Touch For Health® which uses kinesiology and is now performed by many health professionals.

Applied kinesiology can show how emotions are quickly translated into bodily functions. A simple experiment, easily performed at home, can demonstrate the dramatic consequences of negative and positive thoughts on the body. Have a friend assist you in this experiment. With both parties standing, place your left hand with palm open on the center of your forehead while your right arm is stiffly outstretched at a 45% angle (straight ahead) at shoulder level, or out to the side, palm down. In this attitude, think about something happy and beautiful. While holding that memory, your partner will attempt to lower your outstretched arm toward the floor by pushing down on the forearm area while you attempt to resist that downward movement. If you are working with a happy thought, the arm should be able to strongly resist the effort to lower it. Try again, but this time think of something sad or very unpleasant. Now when your partner attempts to lower your raised arm, you will be amazed to discover that you have no resistance whatever to that pressure –your arm simply falls toward the floor. This is a dramatic demonstration of the relationship between body and mind. Our emotions do effect bodily states–this is where thoughts meet biochemistry.

This also is the place where meditation and visualization impact the wellness of the body through a conscious dialogue.

The journey within is the most significant and empowering involvement of our existence. Each thought, emotion, image, memory and deed effects the totality of our being, moment by moment. Within us lies the intelligence of not only mind but body and soul and we have the power to consciously influence every facet of that trinity. We need only the wisdom to recognize it and the will to exercise it.

The most meaningful and powerful medicine we can receive is to allow our inner intelligence to speak to us–and to listen to those whispers from our soul.



Wayne Dyer gives a demonstration in this video of kinesiology and the power of thought.

Psychic Spies: Remote Viewing


Remote viewing was used by the United States Government for many years before being revealed to the public. Stargate, a top-secret psychic espionage program backed by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Defense Intelligence Agency was supposedly disbanded in 1995 after being in existence since the early 1970's. Apparently the program was established after the CIA learned several foreign nations, including the Soviets, Chinese, Germans, Israelis, were heavily involved in various aspects of the paranormal.

The military remote viewers were trained under the father of remote viewing, Ingo Swann, and a team of scientist, including Drs. Hal Puthoff, Russell Targ, Charles Tart, and others at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in Menlo Park, CA., in conjunction with the CIA. Several had psychic ability before undergoing any training. A number of the retired military remote viewers have become consultants in parapsychology and still do remote viewing for agencies, corporations, individuals, and train others.

These remote viewers also tell us that we all have psychic abilities and we all can do remote viewing. I do recall hearing one remote viewer (not one I listed) who has said that remote viewing has nothing to do with psychic ability. Several of those who retired from the Stargate program have gone on to private enterprise with the use of their gift/talent of remote viewing.

David Morehouse, Ph.D., highly decorated special operations officer in the US Army, trained at SRI. According to Morehouse as stated on his website:

“Remote Viewing is not a new phenomenon; the ability has been ours since the beginning of time. The formulation and systemization of theological doctrine as set forth in ancient records present us with countless examples of humanity's learned and inherent abilities to transcend the physical; to see in the mind's eye, people, places and events separate from their physical reality. From the ancient hieroglyphics carved into the walls of forgotten Egyptian tombs, to the "Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean, the Urantia Book, A Course in Miracles, the Old Testament, the Koran, the Kabbalah, the Talmud, and the New Testament−to name but a few−all give accounts of journeys out of the physical body, to night flights of soul, to projections of consciousness, et cetera. However, the most recent history began circa 1972 when the Central Intelligence Agency learned through various human intelligence sources that the Czechs, Chinese, Soviets, Germans, the Israelis and even the British, were all heavily involved in the study of various aspects of what would be called the ‘paranormal.’”

Morehouse also wrote that during the time of the CIA program which became known later as Stargate: “the Remote Viewing unit collected intelligence against a broad range of targets: strategic missile forces, political leaders—theirs and ours, counter narcotics operations, research and development facilities, hostage situations, military weapons systems, secret installations, technology developments, terrorist groups; the list was staggering, and the successes were many—as were the failures. Failures yes, sometimes with limited useable results, yes. Nevertheless, consider what we are talking about. We are talking about a military Remote Viewer sitting alone or with a monitor and entering an altered state of consciousness. In this condition, the Viewer copies a set of randomly assigned numbers (the coordinates), that represent the concept of the target in the mind of the collective unconscious. Then, using the protocols of the process, the Viewer begins detecting and decoding relevant visual and verbal sensory data pertaining to the target; and does this with an accuracy level averaging thirty to thirty-five percent—from absolutely nothing. Even on a bad day, this innate ability within each of us—is nothing but spectacular!”

Read more about what he has to say at his website. Dr. Morehouse has written books and is considered to be the world's leading teacher of Remote Viewing and Spiritual Transformation. It could be that the upcoming publication of his book, Psychic Warrior in 1996, may have, in some ways, forced the Army to admit they did have a Stargate program. (I enjoyed reading his book which became an International best-seller).

Lyn Buchanan, former trainer and remote viewer for the U.S. government's remote viewing unit, retired from military service in 1992 and continued training select people within the government who knew about the program and its capabilities for some time.

Remote viewer Mel Riley retired from the Army in 1991. He was brought into the Stargate program because of his innate psychic abilities in aerial observations and telepathy. He also has memories of a past life as a Native American.

Buchanan founded a remote viewing company and contracted Mel Riley to work for his company. Buchanan also wrote a book about his “psychic spy experiences, as have Russel Targ and Harold Puthoff, Ingo Swann, and remote viewer, Joe McMoneagle.

Joseph McMoneagle, is known as Remote Viewer # 1, the identity he was given within the program.

Joseph McMoneagle was in the Army Security Agency served 13 consecutive years overseas, with assignments that took him to more than twenty different countries. He returned to the United States and in 1977, accepted a commission as a Warrant Officer, along with an assignment to Headquarters, Intelligence and Security Command.

He states, “Less than a year later I was recruited as Remote Viewer #001 of the very black and very sensitive Psychic Spy unit now known as STARGATE. As one of the original viewers with that unit, I helped design and build an effective paranormal collection and support unit that serviced nearly all major Intelligence Agencies within the Federal Government for a period exceeding seventeen years.


He retired in 1984. He is married to Nancy Lea Honeycutt, stepdaughter of Robert A. Monroe, author of Journeys Out of the Body and the Founder of the Monroe Institute. Nancy was also the Director of The Monroe Institute, and had helped her stepfather design and build it.


Due to the success that was often achieved during the psychic spy era, I find it difficult to believe that our government no longer uses this type of intelligence gathering.

Reincarnation, Early Memories

"I am certain that I have been here as I am now
a thousand times before,
and I hope to return a thousand times."
~ Goethe (1749-1832)



There was a long tradition of investigating evidence relevant for the question of life after death. But Ian Stevenson, M.D. started a new field of inquiry, namely the investigation of phenomena that might give evidence for life before birth, the theory of reincarnation. A well-known and revealing study of reincarnation was conducted by Professor of Psychiatry, Ian Stevenson, M.D. of the University of Virginia Medical School.

Dr. Stevenson documented more than two thousand cases of children who have reported past life experiences and his works has been published by the University of Virginia Press and in numerous medical journals. Ian Stevenson died in 2007 and child psychiatrist Dr. Jim Tucker is carrying on the work of Dr. Stevenson at the University.

Dr. Stevenson’s Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation has aroused considerable interest around the world and is regarded as almost a textbook by serious students of the subject. The children reported in his studies cover the full range of ethnic backgrounds, about half from European heritage and with strong ties to the Judeo-Christian ethos where reincarnationist ideas are largely alien to the culture. He will be primarily remembered for his pioneering field investigations of children who claim to have lived before.

Co-Creation, The Vibrational Energy of Life



Dr. James Martin Peebles (1822-1922), now a spirit guide, gives us his spiritual psychology and within his teachings are these very important Three Spiritual Principles.








“If one believes that he alone creates his life, all his experiences, his thoughts, his actions–and reactions–and takes full responsibility for that, then he can never be a victim. Fear, resentment, anger and hate fall away like the petals of a daisy caught up in the wind. Love begets love. And love begins within self. The illusion of separation dissipates, intimacy prevails, and the creative force of self shines.”
~Spirit Guide Dr. James Martin Peebles
from Three Principles of Angelic Wisdom by Linda Pendleton

Self-Discovery


Today I was introduced to the excellent inspirational poem, The Journey by Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author, Mary Oliver who has published over 25 volumes of poetry and prose. She was born in 1935 in Ohio and studied at Ohio State University and Vassar College. For several years she lived at the home of Edna St. Vincent Millay.

Her book, American Primitive, won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1984. She traveled widely, giving readings and workshops at various colleges and universities and teaching, and for five years held the Catharine Osgood Foster Chair for Distinguished Teaching at Bennington College, VT. She currently lives in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Her poem for me is about the struggles we face along our journey of self-discovery. It speaks of letting go of things that have constrained us, and moving forward, and this may mean changing such things as relationships or careers. It may mean feeling for the first time and allowing what we have known about ourselves all along to blossom and grow. And in doing so, we reach a much deserved sense of freedom.

It can also be about those who have freed themselves from abuse, but whatever the situation one may have in life, it would be like stepping out of the box, which often may have been confining, suffocating, restrictive, and then delighting in the new found freedom and joy.



The Journey

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice—
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.
But you didn't stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do—
determined to save
the only life you could save.

~ Mary Oliver

I like her phrase, '“Mend my life," each voice cried.' It reminds me of how often, especially as women, we have been in the position of taking care of everyone else’s life, often at the expense of our own. We might come in last, if we even come in at all. Maybe no inner voice calls out for us, “mend my life.” It is up to the individual to discover his or her voice and in that new found voice say, I have mended my life. I am who I am!

Isn’t the time for self-discovery now? What are you waiting for?

Fear of Psychic Gift

Photo by Eric Stephens


“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear–not absence of fear.”
–Mark Twain (1835–1910)



Intuition is defined as the ability to perceive or know things without conscious reasoning, immediate apprehension or understanding. It is your inner voice, or psychic awareness, your spontaneous knowing.

Our intuition is innate and a natural part of our lives. But many of us ignore, block, deny, or simply do not tap into this valuable resource. But why would we do this with a resource that can be used to help us heal, solve problems, and make spiritual contact with deceased loved ones or spirit guides?

Do you have fear of using your intuitive and psychic gift? Do you keep your psychic stuff to yourself because you fear being vulnerable?

What do you risk by becoming “public” with your abilities? It might be that if you use it openly, naturally, it gives power to other people to validate or invalidate you.

Some people may think you’re “crazy.” Does that thought scare you?

If you read the books of some of the well known psychic mediums you will see as children they may have had challenges such as “we don’t talk about that,” “it’s just your imagination,” “people will think you are nutty,” “ don’t tell anyone what you see.” Or hear, or know.... Have you ever experienced that?

I do believe there is a “code of ethics” about spiritual work. Even though messages may come to us from beyond I believe it is our responsibility to have ethical boundaries about forwarding messages to others without their permission. To do so may be an invasion of someone’s privacy. But I also feel it is our responsibility as a receiver to try and deliver the message in a gentle and sensitive way. We do have to remember people can be vulnerable, especially those in grief. And many messages that come through are for those in grief.

I saw an invasion of someone’s privacy, an intrusion into their private life, happen once at a healing circle. A couple were there to hear from two recently deceased loved ones, and that was apparent. A message did come through for them from the other side, but then before it was over, two other psychics in the room bombarded them with embarrassing information to do with the critical financial situation they were enduring, the things wrong with their sex life, the lack of communication within their relationship, hurt feelings against family, and so on. It was painful to watch their reaction to hearing all this presented publicly in front of thirty strangers. I felt so bad for them as I saw their faces turn red in embarrassment, watched their slinking back into their chairs probably hoping to fade away, watching their emotional withdrawal as the psychics continued, and all the while I was enduring their public humiliation along with them. That was wrong. If these two psychics had personal information like that they should have given it to them privately. Before it was over I knew more about these two strangers and their lives, both good and bad, then I know about my next door neighbors. I’m surprised we didn’t have their Social Security number before it was over.

But I also knew something about these two psychics, both new to their found abilities: they were too enthusiastic and their ego was right up front, trying to impress everyone and apparently had not yet discovered or decided they needed to have an ethical code of conduct with their spiritual work.

What if spirit is banging on your head to relay a message? Have you had that happen? I have and I know others who have had that happen. Sometimes you may wonder why the message came to you in the first place. And then once you have the message you may have to figure out the best way to present it. What if you hardly know the person for whom it is intended? Then what? You may find in most instances, if you tell the person you have a message from the other side, they will want to hear what it is, even though it appears they may not be a “believer.” And then again, you may have someone not wanting to hear the message at all. But that’s okay as you’ve done your part as the conveyor of the message. Sometimes there is just too much static for a message to get through. You know how it is: you send an email and it gets lost in cyberspace and you never know where it goes if it goes at all. Same with someone refusing a message from the other side. It may be out there in the ethers, and some messages may get to the person it was intended for in some other creative way. But for you, you did your job, and your responsibility is over.

As we use our intuition and PSI abilities, we have personal and spiritual growth, we learn more about ourselves as well as about others, we become more compassionate, more loving, more attuned to the higher aspects of the universe, and all the good things about intuition and spiritual growth take away the fear of having and using any psychic gift you may have. It is accepting and acknowledging fear and moving through fear which gives us courage. And with that courage comes a sense of freedom and a self awareness. We also may learn how healing and inspiring our words may be to another and that is heartwarming and takes away any traces of fear we may have.


Four Classic Types of Intuition:

Clairvoyance is defined as clear sight, or clear seeing, beyond the physical. Clairvoyance would include visions, seeing images in the mind, seeing angels, seeing apparitions, seeing deceased loved ones. This can include precognition.

Clairaudience is defined as clear hearing, the ability to perceive sounds, voices, music, that do not have a physical source. Clairaudience includes hearing messages from those on the other side, such as our loved ones, spirit guides, guardian angels, and often with the personality and voice inflections of the deceased loved one, for instance. This could also include hearing voices, sounds, from past events at a particular location.

Clairsentience is defined as clear feeling. Someone with this ability is able to experience strong, empathetic feeling and emotions from spirit, or even from living persons. This would include persons who are very sensitive to energies and emotions of other people. Healers of various disciplines often have this ability.

Inspirational Thought is defined as receiving inspiration without forethought. It has a broad definition and is how many creative ideas come to be: thoughts, ideas, impressions, knowledge, and creativity. Many great artists, musicians, and writers of the past (and present) have utilized inspirational thought.

Thoughts for Today and Every Day


He who knows his soul knows this truth:
"I am beyond everything finite; I now see that the Spirit, alone in a space with Its ever-new joy, has expressed Itself as the vast body of nature.
I am the stars,
I am the waves,
I am the Life of all,
I am the laughter within all hearts,
I am the smile on the faces of the flowers and in each soul.
I am the Wisdom and Power that sustain all creation."

Roswell New Mexico, July 8, 1947, UFO Crash


"Talk of mysteries!... Contact! Contact! Who are we? Where are we?"
~Henry David Thoreau

On this day, July 8, 1947 it was reported by a press release that a “flying disc” had crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. It was reported in the Roswell Daily Record Newspaper and on a radio station but within hours the Commanding General of the 8th Air Force stated that the debris had been from the crash of a weather balloon.

Years later in 1994 the Air Force released a report that basically said the Roswell incident was nothing more than test balloons but they followed that up with a report in 1997, stating the aliens associated with the apparent crash were nothing more than test dummies. Case Closed.

The government closed the case considering all of us dummies in my opinion. There is too much credible evidence to the contrary. Eye witness reports, including credible military people, government memos, and many books written by credible researchers such as nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, Charles Berlitz and William Moore, Kevin Randall and Donald Schmitt, and several others.

Opening Minds about Alien Beings, Dr. John E. Mack


Why are the aliens beings here? What is their purpose? Do we have any clues to that? How about evidence? Can we accept we are not alone and probably never have been?

Dr. John E. Mack, the late Harvard Professor, mentioned in one of the tapes below what Mark Macy had to say about communications coming from the astral and ethereal dimensions. Macy said, “For some people it doesn’t matter how good the evidence is, it won’t make any difference.”

Some years back, I talked with and later met Mark Macy and discussed his work, ITC research (Instrumental Transcommunication from beyond the veil). He also does work with spirit photography and angel communication and is an author. I agree with Macy's statement.

Dr. John E. Mack devoted his later years of his career to a merging of spiritual and philosophical traditions, and then his research into alien abductions put his long career on the line. In 1994, the Harvard Medical School Dean appointed a committee of peers to investigate Dr. Mack’s care and clinical investigation of patients who had alien encounters. Some of those people had been referenced in his best selling book, Abduction. It was said that it was the first time in Harvard’s history that a tenured professor was subjected to an investigation into his work. Finally, Harvard issued a statement reaffirming Dr. Mack’s academic freedom to study what he chose to study and to state his opinions without impediment.

He continued his important work in the area of UFO phenomena until his untimely death in September 2004 at the age of 74, after being hit by a car while crossing a London street after speaking at the T. E. Lawrence Society Symposium in Oxford.

I love his work. And I wanted to again share some of his lecture at the International UFO Congress in March 2002. The videos goes on in ten minute segments of his talk. After listening to this one, hear more


This was # 3. For More John E. Mack
