Total Solar Eclipse & The Curious History of Invisible Light — Nashville's Coast to Coast AM Alternative

On Monday, August 21st residents of just 10 states —and the millions of travelers making the trip for the chance to see a rare phenomenon—will be able to witness the full totality of a solar eclipse.  The totality window spans a mere 70 miles wide.   Astronomer Bob Bermantouches on the spectacular beauty of a total eclipse compared to a partial eclipse.

 Then we turn our attention to his latest book: “Zapped“.
Even during the darkest night sky, all around us we’re surrounded by light. Science writer Bob Berman joins us to talk about the many kinds of light we cannot see – how they are crucial for life and how they can kill us if we’re not careful.

His new book is called “Zapped: From Infrared to X-Rays, the Curious History of Invisible Light”

Psychedelic Gospels with Jerry Brown

Are there secret messages encoded in ancient Christian artwork? Jerry Brown believes the paintings, stained glass and other works of art from early Christianity show a strong pattern of psychedelic usage among early Christians—including Jesus and his disciples. On today’s episode we focus on a very controversial topic that will be sure to entice hateful comments, strong emotions and perhaps a process of “What If”.

100th episode of Mysterious Matters, the Alternative Coast to Coast AM Podcast.

Reveals evidence of visionary plants in Christianity and the life of Jesus found in medieval art and biblical scripture--hidden in plain sight for centuries

• Follows the authors’ anthropological adventure discovering sacred mushroom images in European and Middle Eastern churches, including Roslyn Chapel and Chartres

• Provides color photos showing how R. Gordon Wasson’s psychedelic theory of religion clearly extends to Christianity and reveals why Wasson suppressed this information due to his secret relationship with the Vatican

• Examines the Bible and the Gnostic Gospels to show that visionary plants were the catalyst for Jesus’s awakening to his divinity and immortality

Throughout medieval Christianity, religious works of art emerged to illustrate the teachings of the Bible for the largely illiterate population. What, then, is the significance of the psychoactive mushrooms hiding in plain sight in the artwork and icons of many European and Middle-Eastern churches? Does Christianity have a psychedelic history?

Providing stunning visual evidence from their anthropological journey throughout Europe and the Middle East, including visits to Roslyn Chapel and Chartres Cathedral, authors Julie and Jerry Brown document the role of visionary plants in Christianity. They retrace the pioneering research of R. Gordon Wasson, the famous “sacred mushroom seeker,” on psychedelics in ancient Greece and India, and among the present-day reindeer herders of Siberia and the Mazatecs of Mexico. Challenging Wasson’s legacy, the authors reveal his secret relationship with the Vatican that led to Wasson’s refusal to pursue his hallucinogen theory into the hallowed halls of Christianity.

Examining the Bible and the Gnostic Gospels, the authors provide scriptural support to show that sacred mushrooms were the inspiration for Jesus’ revelation of the Kingdom of Heaven and that he was initiated into these mystical practices in Egypt during the Missing Years. They contend that the Trees of Knowledge and of Immortality in Eden were sacred mushrooms.

Uncovering the role played by visionary plants in the origins of Judeo-Christianity, the authors invite us to rethink what we know about the life of Jesus and to consider a controversial theory that challenges us to explore these sacred pathways to the divine.

BioCentrism Theory Explained: Astronomer Bob Berman

Bob Berman (co-author of BioCentrism and Beyond BioCentrism) explains what is behind the theory of BioCentrism. Bob Berman and Dr. Robert Lanza created the theory of BioCentrism.

Astronomer and regular contributor to Astronomy Magazine, Bob Berman, sat down to discuss the strange happenings in our universe—as well as what astronomical events we should be looking for during 2017.

The most exciting of these events is The Total Solar Eclipse of August 21, 2017 and it cuts a path through the United States... but only certain locations will be within the path of totality. That means you'll need to find where the path of totality will be for August 21, 2017 in order to view this rare event.

Then the focus turned to Bob Berman's book that he co-authored with Dr. Robert Lanza— Beyond Biocentrism. They also touched on the Trappist-1 Planetary System, Bob Berman's Strange Universe 3 minute program on NPR, and Bob's upcoming book called Zapped.

Immortality of the Gods: The Anunnaki, Christianity, and Black Eyed Children

From ancient texts there comes a truly fascinating tale of Humans or Humanoid beings whose average lifespans exceeded five-hundred years. Over time this unique genetic material appears to have degraded itself outside of modern day human DNA.

Is it possible that such genetic lineage was never part of the average human genome but instead belonged to an ancient and advanced race of intelligent beings known as the Anunnaki? That is the discussion of today’s show with our guest, Nick Redfern.

Topics touched on include:

► Were the Anunnaki responsible for the creation of not one but all the religions on the earth

Carl Sagan's Theory of Ancient Aliens

Carl Sagan once wrote a controversial paper that was funded by a NASA research grant. In what is now known as the Sagan Stanford papers—and originally known by the title of “Direct Contact Among Galactic Civilizations by Relativistic Interstellar Spaceflight” and published in 1962—Carl Sagan concludes that intervention from an ancient and advanced civilization may have sparked the current Human Genome.

In other terms, Carl believed it was probable that an extraterrestrial civilization created human beings as we are today. Our guest today—on the alternative to Coast to Coast AM, in podcast format—is Donald Zygutis and Don lays claim that NASA has not only worked hard to suppressed Carl Sagan’s message of ancient aliens but that the organization is also heavily influenced by decision makers of the Pentagon.


Topics touched on include:

► Why is Carl Sagan considered as one of the most influential scientists of all time (Sagan’s popularity was only matched or exceeded by another scientist by the name of Albert Einstein)

► Are TV shows like Ancient Aliens on the History channel doing more harm than good when it comes to hardcore research for finding evidence of Ancient Astronauts

► Was Carl Sagan assassinated by an organization with close ties to NASA and the secrecy of the truth behind Ancient Astronauts

► What did Carl Sagan believe the Biblical Jesus was. Was he Human or something more Alien

► Is the Christian God, and other Gods, of an extraterrestrial origin

► What did Carl Sagan believe might have actually killed the Dinosaurs (Did Radiation Kill the Dinosaurs?)

► What will our civilization—or humankind look like in a million years

► Plus more!

Nine Waves of Creation: Quantum Physics and Holographic Evolution

What are the nine waves of creation? The nine waves of creation are frequencies and vibrations that originated from what is known as the big bang. But to date, nobody has been able to explain exactly what triggered the Big Bang…or what it was to begin with. On Mysterious Matters episode 90, and the last episode of 2016, we will touch on the Nine Waves of Creation: Quantum Physics, Holographic Evolution, and the Destiny of Humanity.

Dr. Carl Calleman’s theory is one where the big bang— supposed creator of our universe— was but one branch, out of thousands of growth spurt branches, from a cosmological tree of life.

Topics touched on include:


► Does quantum physics offer a definitive answer that combines both the belief of creation, and of evolution


► Are we speeding toward a new wave of evolution


► Is it possible that memories from our ancestors could be passed down from generation to generation through either genetic material or another form of invisible natural, but unknown phenomenon

► If life is a holographic illusion, then what is the purpose of life, and in the same token why create different religious belief systems focusing on various Gods when we are in all probability communicating the same universal being of consciousness

► If nobody is around to hear a tree fall, does it still make a sound

► Would it be possible for someone to hack into these waves of creation and thereby being able to possess an individual, or several individuals, to manipulate thoughts and actions

► Are these nine waves of creation spoken of in the book of Revelation, in the Christian bible, through a symbolic form known as the seven trumpets

►Does the nine waves of creation theory have room for explaining the existence of parallel universes And more!

Ian Punnett: From Nashville to Coast to Coast AM | Black Night for the Bluegrass Belle

Legendary Broadcaster, Ian Punnett joined Mysterious Matters to discuss his days working in Nashville, TN (WKDF) to his days at Coast to Coast AM. In this episode, you will get an intimate look into the life of Ian Punnett. Bob and Ian discuss if Coast to Coast AM of today with George Noory is more corporate controlled than it was when Art Bell had been at the height of his success.

The discussion of Talk Radio continues as Bob mentions some of his mentors and how Teddy Bart of Nashville, TN had created a show like Coast to Coast AM back in 1987 (prior to Art Bell even contemplated a move away from politics). Ian said, “Art Bell had been lucky, he was at the right place at the right time, with the right voice and content. Other people have done similar content driven shows but never reached Art’s success. It was like catching lighting in a bottle.”

Bob and Ian then turn the discussion to focus on Ian’s new True Crime book called “A Black Night for the Bluegrass Belle“. It focuses on the murder of his grandmother’s first cousin, Verna Garr Taylor. This is the classic tale of unrequited love gone horribly wrong and justice was almost never dished out. That’s what happens when you’re a rich and powerful person with friends in high places. As a white male in the 1930’s, former Brigadier General, and Lt Governor of Kentucky, Henry Denhardt felt as though he was untouchable.

Prior to Verna Garr Taylor’s death there was another…and Denhardt was seen at the location of another woman’s death (Patricia Wilson). Her ghost has since been known to haunt the hotel in which her physical body was either thrown down an elevator shaft or she accidentally fell into it. This ghost is known as, The Blue Lady of Seelbach Hilton (Louisville, KY). Whether Denhardt was responsible for Patricia Wilson’s death… nobody will ever know. But Denhardt was a narcissistic sociopath. It was also brought up how it appears, President Elect Donald Trump shares a lot of the same narcissistic sociopath (or psychopath) characteristics with Henry Denhardt.

Mysteries of Spring-Heeled Jack: Plus Other Legendary Creatures

England is said to be an ancient land between realms and this could explain the many mystical characters in its illustrious history. Today we explore the myths, the urban legends, and an occasional ghost story of England’s history.

John Matthews joined Mysterious Matters to discuss a Terrifying Victorian legend known as Spring-Heeled Jack. Spring-Heeled Jack was a tall, thin, bounding figure with bat-like wings (Many wonder if Bob Kane had known about this legendary figure prior to creating Batman), clawed hands, wheels of fire for eyes and breathed blue flames.  He first leapt into public attention during the Victorian era of London England; springing over hedges and walls, from dark lanes and dark graveyards to frighten and sometimes physically attack people (curiously Spring-Heeled Jack mostly attacked women).   


Also, brought up in discussion:

► Is there any truth to England being a land between realms (our realm and another) 

► What is the legend of Spring-Heeled Jack

► What was Spring-Heeled Jack; Man, Demon or something else

►Is there physical evidence of such a person or being existed

► With Spring-heeled jack sporting knife like claws, could there be a connection between spring heeled-jack and jack the ripper?

► Were beings like Spring-heeled Jack, and the Krampus something along the lines of a Tulpa

► Has there been other reports of spring-heeled jack type beings around the world

►Spring-Heeled Jack’s popularity in the Steampunk Community

►Robin of Sherwood Forrest

►Ghost Story of Herne the Hunter

Traditions and Beliefs on the Afterlife: Guide to the Afterlife with Professor Mark Mirabello

What lies beyond this great façade of physicality (the realm of molecule driven illusions) is the greatest mysterious matter of them all, and the real final frontier of exploration. Professor of History, Mark Mirabello of Shawnee State University joined the program to discuss the different world traditions and beliefs on Death, Dying, and What Lies Beyond. In this edition of the Award Winning Mysterious Matters, Bob Bain and Professor Mark Mirabello have an enlightening and controversial discussion, focusing on the various beliefs of what happens to us after we leave the physical world of perceived reality.

►What is Death What exactly does death represent? Through our conversation Professor Mirabello discusses multiple belief systems and traditions on Life and on Death. How do you know for a fact that you are actually alive…and not dead?

►Dream Molecules Atoms, Elements, and Molecules are all around us but what if the reason we are seeing these elements is that we are dream beings. What if all that we can see with the naked eye, and through advanced technologies are merely elements which make up our illusion of a physical state of being.

►Where is Heaven Where is Heaven? That is a question asked by so many through thousands of years. People and even scientists have gazed into the sky, into space searching for evidence that Heaven, that God does exist. But what if we cannot find Heaven, or God, not because they do not exist but rather because we exist inside of them. Just as we have cells running through our bodies, we may also be like living cells within the body of God. There are some traditions that believe Humans have molecular galaxies, planets, and life living within each one of us.

►Bill and Hillary Clinton's Voodoo Honeymoon Did you know that Bill Clinton and his new wife, Hillary Clinton went on a Honeymoon to Haiti (paid for by a family friend) and took part in a Voodoo Ceremony? If this intrigues you then listen to the podcast to find out more!

►Belief that Halloween Allows for Thinning of the Veil Thinning of the Veil is a word that describes an event that many believe actually happens every year in October. The Veil is a fabric of space, time and frequencies—all separating physicalites (I describe physicalites as those who deem themselves as being of a physical nature) and the energy based forms of conscious beings (otherwise known as Angels, Elementals, Demons, Ghosts, Spirits, and Haints). Every year Professor Mirabello does a lecture on Halloween at Shawnee State University. He goes through the beliefs and traditions from its purest form as originated from the Celtic harvest, and roots tied to Paganism. These and so much more await you on Episode #81 of Mysterious Matters, the top-rated Paranormal Podcast and Alternative Topic Podcast.

Time Travel: The Story of John Titor II - Interview with a time traveler with Jason Quitt

John Titor II and Jason Quitt drop by Mysterious Matters and kicked off the conversation with their plans to excavate and recover an advance extraterrestrial craft (UFO) that is 300 feet across and has been on the Earth for 20,000 to 30,000 years. The show was originally booked with our dear friend and well respected Canadian journalist, Bob Mitchell… unfortunately, Bob Mitchell passed away on September, 21st of 2016. Bob was one of the utmost respected independent researchers of alien abduction claims, UFO sightings, and claims of other anomalous phenomena.

John Titor II said because of his time working at Area 51 that he would have the technical know-how to operate the UFO. However, there might be a preset automatic course directive for when the advanced alien craft is rebooted and operational. The conversation continues to discuss the stature of a Grey Alien in comparison to that of an Annunaki and each species’ own aerodynamic and ergonomic requirements for their own respective craft.

Star Trek: Beyond Science Fiction

Star Trek, beyond science fiction is a voyage to unveil the future of interstellar travel, and answers how Star Trek has directly influenced its progression. Beaming aboard Mysterious Matters is Andrew Fazekas—otherwise known as The Night Sky Guy.


STAR TREK: THE OFFICIAL GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE True Science behind the Starship Voyages When Star Trek fans hear the infamous opening line “Space: the final frontier,” it usually brings to mind favorite episodes from the classic show and intergalactic worlds visited by the crew of U.S.S. Enterprise during their five-year mission. But many of the galactic destinations featured in Star Trek over the years – multiple star systems, alien worlds, supernova explosions, emission nebulae, voracious black holes – are scientifically valid, so much so that one can step out and view them in the night sky. Space fans can boldly go where no one has gone before with STAR TREK: THE OFFICIAL GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE: True Science behind the Starship Voyages by astronomy guru and educator Andrew “The Night Sky Guy” Fazekas with a foreword by Captain Kirk, himself, William Shatner.

Holographic Reality of The Global Consciousness

Over the years scientists and theorists have speculated on the physicality of our environment. Some have seen evidence suggesting that which we deem as physical might in fact not be physical at all—but rather a holographic imaging created by some unknown source and broadcasted to global human consciousness. That too is the hypothesis of Dr. Carl Calleman. Dr. Calleman shares his theories surrounding quantum evolution and its holographic resonance with the human mind.

Whitley Strieber: The Super Natural

Whitley Strieber has spent his life in pursuit of answers to the great mysteries of the supernatural, so it’s very fitting we start our first show of Mysterious Matters with him. In this interview with Bob Bain, Whitley talks frankly about everything… from the scientific community, who he feels is afraid of finding out the truth, and his ongoing life with his late wife, Anne. He speaks of his new book, “The Super Natural: A New Vision of the Unexplained“, and gives us a hint at what may truly bring answers to us all.

Maybe I went too far with this one, but I think it’s just damn well time.”– Whitley Strieber on his interview with Mysterious Matters.

 * Do we have the scientific equipment to measure and establish the true nature of unknown phenomena?

*Why is the scientific community afraid to find the truth? Why won’t they ask what Super Natural experiences are and why do they outright reject the very idea?

* Has the scientific community slipped into their own form of “religion”?

* Is theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku vanishing from mainstream media as a science expert and replaced by an astrophysicist with a closed mind (Neil deGrasse Tyson)?

* Is a ghost outside of nature? Or is there a Super Natural explanation?

* Whitley addresses OBE’s, How many “travelers” are out there, and are they related to ghosts? Whitley also shares a meditation to help those who wish to connect with loved ones across the veil.

* Is instantaneous travel to other planets possible?

* What is it like on the other side of the veil? What is a “Web of Being?” Are we all expressions of a greater consciousness?

* After the interview, Bob gets a surprise phone call…Anne Strieber has a message from the other side.

What if? Alien Encounters & Alien Abduction Stories with Bob Mitchell

Bob Mitchell, joined the Farside to discuss new alien abduction cases, and to ask the question of “What If?”.

What if a mere 10 to 20 percent of all Alien encounters turned out to be true? How Many Alien Races are There If the story of the Ataracu is to believed, then there is only one Alien race of intelligent extraterrestrial beings that have visited the Earth. Are Alien Abductions Responsible for Missing Children More information to come.

Author, journalist Bob Mitchell presents a never before glimpse into the inside world of the Greys along with a unique cast of Experiencers, who share their alien encounters including their abductions, their horrifying medical experiments and their universal connection to reincarnation and alien consciousness.

Bob Mitchell discussed unusual accounts regarding extraterrestrial contacts including never-before-told stories from the inside world of the Greys, and Mantids, as revealed by abductees and contactees. One of the experiencers he interviewed is a woman who goes by the name of Cinta ej Narat, and her extensive information sometimes contradicted some of the popular notions about the Greys.

The beings told her the name of their race is the Ataracu, they hail from the Orion constellation, and they have peaceful intentions. They were created by the same God we worship, and were likely the ones the ancients called the Anunnaki, she told Mitchell.

According to Narat, it was the Ataracu who crashed at Roswell, and two of them survived for a brief period. The beings are physically similar to humans, with larger brains, and longer fingers. They are just over 5 ft. tall, and live for around 400 years (which is the equivalent of 1,000 human years), she further detailed. A male contactee he spoke with described a bizarre but beneficent encounter with an enormous 30 ft. tall Mantid creature that occurred while he was in an out-of-body state. Mitchell also talked his involvement with the Alien Cosmic Expo that will be taking place this June in Brantford, Ontario.

What if alien abductions are real? What if more than one alien species is visiting Earth? What if humankind is only one consciousness in the universe?

Power of Chakras: Twelve Chakras with Elizabeth Joyce

Elizabeth Joyce, an American psychic, joined the Farside to discuss the new spiritual Chakras. These new spiritual chakras became available to us around 2012. Bob knew nothing about Chakras going into the interview, beyond what he read in Elizabeth’s book “The New Spiritual Chakras: and How to Work with them”. He walked away with a new understanding and appreciation for the power of Chakras.

What are Chakras? Chakras, according to Elizabeth Joyce, is our purest form of being. They are who we are on a spiritual level. As we advance toward a more enlightened being, more of our true selves begin to open up to our physical selves.

How many Chakras are there?  There are twelve Chakras. There is also an 8 ½ Chakra which is a new spiritual Chakra that recently became available for further advancement. Predictions for 2016 Elizabeth Joyce also shared some of her predictions for 2016 and beyond.

She discussed how the prophecies come to her; through multiple forms such as visual and audible. The Farside is an alternative to Coast to Coast AM. Elizabeth Joyce is included in the book titled "The 100 Top Psychics & Astrologers in America".

• Shows how the Freudian and Jungian theories of the unconscious have grossly misrepresented the spirit of man and the psyche of humanity What if science and society’s most darling theories, taught as fact, were 100% wrong?

What if the anomalies that disprove these theories were covered up and distorted and any serious challenges brushed off as lunacy, hysteria, junk science, and dissension?

Ouija Board Encounters: Real Ouija Board Experiences with Karen Dahlman

Karen Dahlman, a leading, expert Ouijaologist, talked about her work with the Ouija Board and offered advice on how to best use the device. Having worked with the Ouija Board since 1973, Dahlman explained that she uses the instrument "as a tool to go deeper into consciousness" where she communicates with entities such as angels, spirit guides, and even animals. She observed that, although you can pose any question to the Ouija Board, the answers one receives are entirely dependent upon the entity answering the inquiry. "Just because I'm speaking to something that's unseen," she stressed, "doesn't mean they are all knowing, all seeing, or have all the answers."

Sharing insights into her process of using the Ouija Board, Dahlman said that it begins with showing reverence to the power that the device holds as well as the communication the may unfold. Beyond that, she advised users to be relaxed and centered before working with the board as well as receptive of whatever messages may be conveyed. Finally, she emphasized that repetition is a key factor in mastering the Ouija Board, noting that having a specific scheduled time to use the device is helpful in getting better communication. On how to get deeper insights from 'the other side,' she recommended avoiding 'yes/no' questions, which she called a "novice mistake," since such inquiries do not allow the 'voice' to master their end of Ouija Board communication nor provide clear answers.

Time Travel Secrets with Von Braschler

Time Travel and Time Manipulation Machines have been fantasized, and theorized, for centuries.

The question remains:  Does Time Travel exist? If it does, would we find it in a mechanical form such as a DeLorean, an Omni device (as seen on the television series "Voyagers!", perhaps even through another physical time traveling mechanism -- or would we find it through the power of energy as manipulated by intent. Listen to this interview and find out.

Von Braschler described his first experience with time travel, it occurred when he was twelve years of age he and other children were picking blueberries -- when Von became sick and headed home.

* Does Time Exist

* Holographic Nature Of Life and Time

* Is Time Travel Possible

* What Are The Methods of Time Travel

* 7 Secrets of Time Travel

* Go on Vacation Without Traveling Long Distances

In this interview we talked about Back to the Future and how Von almost bought a DeLorean, but found it to be a death trap because his vision was hindered.

Bob touched on how he first became interested in Time Travel, and it was through a television series called "Voyagers!" that aired in the 80's.

Time traveling and time travel machines have been a topic of science fiction and countless movies for many decades. In fact, it appears that the possibility to travel in time, either into the future or into the past, has appealed to the imagination of mankind for centuries.

Ghost Hunter Confessions with Von Braschler | Demonic Attacks, Church Ghost, Chapel of Evil

Today there's a growing number of popular shows that purportedly show self-proclaimed "professional ghost hunters" as they run around screaming like children with their hair on fire. In reality these types of shows aren't based on the investigations of true professionals... but are based on the reality television series principle of entertaining the audience for the sake of entertainment. There are however those who truly work in the real field of ghost investigations or spirit rescue, and Von Braschler is one such individual.

Von Braschler found himself, a reluctant ghost hunter, facing insurmountable odds against the purest of evil in humanity and other beings. This interview with Von Braschler details some of his own personal and intriguing stories that I call: Ghost Hunter Confessions. Can Ghosts use Devices to Communicate?

Yes! In today’s age where phones are now miniature computers, we may even begin to notice an influx of ghostly text messages. Burlington Vortex Despite early recognition of his own psychic sensitivities and ability to see spirits, Von Braschler did not seek to become a ghost hunter. He entered on this path through a chance encounter with a professional ghost hunter.

After training with her, he returned to Oregon where he began exorcising ghosts for friends and acquaintances and, as he reveals in these pages, quickly stumbled upon forces far beyond his level of experience. Sharing his true story of what can go wrong when ghost hunting,

Braschler describes his training sessions with the professional ghost hunter and details his most difficult and dangerous attempts to remove spirits from haunted buildings, including an old church in Portland and an herbalist’s trailer on Mount Hood, where he encountered a spirit known to choke people in their sleep. He explains how not all spirits are simply ghosts of deceased people reluctant to move on from this plane of existence. They may be entities created from the rage, hatred, or frustrations of a building’s current or former inhabitants, and disturbing them can lead to dark confrontations without easy resolution.

Lucid Dreaming with Robert Waggoner | Engage Your Consciousness while Dreaming

Robert Waggoner shares powerful steps to engage your consciousness in order to become Lucidly Aware in Dreams.
Robert Waggoner discusses the Power of Lucid Dreaming and the steps required in order to achieve a higher state of awareness while in a dream state.

What is Lucid Dreaming?

In simplest terms, a lucid dream occurs when a dreamer becomes aware that they are dreaming. It normally happens when we notice the unique quirks of our dream worlds— so called dreamsigns. Such dreams occur infrequently for most people, although a select few experience them regularly and without practice. For the rest of us, it is possible to learn our dream signs, though it requires that we always be questioning reality.

How to Become Lucid in Dreams

Robert Waggoner talks about his early dream experiences and how he discovered Lucid Dreaming after reading Carlos Castaneda. He quantifies the scientific evidence that now exists on this subject and explains why he feels that Lucid Dreaming is a revolutionary tool to explore the actual nature of reality. It can clearly show shadow issues and the limiting nature of self-attachments and may lead to an experience of non-dual awareness.
