"braude" Discussed on Boston Public Radio Podcast

"Boston public radio. Jim brady and maureen. And we're having this discussion because people are finally getting back on planes and feeling relatively safe. But we're talking about one aspect of it flying this. I guess you'd call them the sober skies nobody's guys. They say to cope with an uptick in air rage. Meaning they are suggesting it's alcohol. Inspired southwest american are suspending in-flight. Drinking not for everybody. Not for i. I don't know about southwest but american only suspending it for people in economy or the main cabin not for the real people in business or first class. Raskin asking you is this. A good idea is going to achieve the the appropriate purposes and even if it does and we want to protect the flight attendants the flight safe. Are you not so offended by this to class system. It's bad that there are people in first classes margaret. Said you gotta walk by him. Sort of like a torture chamber. You're all the things you're not gonna have on this flight because their employers by paying for it but in addition to that they can have a drink. And you can't that is just simply wrong. Lexi in rhode island. Welcome to the show. Hi hey i recently flew southwest From providence to Florida and actually was on the way home. I had to sit all the way in the back of the plane. Very last eat. I look in my little booklet area. And there's an empty bottle right in there but nice little fireball. I mean clearly. People can still get on there going through. Tsa with it for other airlines like. It's it's easy. So i know people are like upset about it. But i'm more of a cannabis user than alcohol and can't say the little chocolate edible on take a little nip on hold on for second lexi because we just got an email from diane saying the nervous flyer gumy's work really well. You can't have alcohol and legal legal because it's not legal under federal law even if the two states the one. You're coming from and going to legal. But i don't think they're going to take a drug test the tsa in the bathroom whenever what she can say. It's did definitely easy to bring on a little. Yeah the legal so you don't want it l. but you can do it on a plane. Can't you people to laws. I wasn't telling them not to do it. Lexi believe me. Okay thank you for your tail. They're kind of thing. I want to kind of get for nervous. Nerves ought to look into that jim. Cole ender ender. She runs a. She's the press right. that's why thank you for calling. Hello and hi Long long time listener supported on. Thank you thank you through. Thank you Is a truly sick. There's a highlight of my day. Anyway i like and I was in the skies mostly international over thirty two years. Why and i've gotta tell you all almost everything besides mental illness. Almost all of the really unpleasant things that happen on an airplane were alcohol. Yeah and i feel. I have mixed emotions about it We're going to hawaii in the fall and the fight of not drink on the way because long flight was like oh god i clash and oh you're all set. After having so many bad experiences with alcohol in airplanes. I can understand why it and and you seem to be saying that it would be appropriate to ban alcohol all the time not just during these covert times is that is that right well. That's a double edged sword because you've got people who are gonna sneak it on people who are going to get loaded before they get on an airplane. Yeah so twin the flight attendants into police against a good point. And it's really it's a really really Tough thing to do. I mean it's hard on an airplane to shut somebody off when they've had too much to that. I'm sure hey in your flying first class to hawaii is that part of the benefit of being retired flight attendant or is that the paying full freight no actually My wife does a lot of research online. And she we be has to be there because we're meeting family so she she phones for first class deals and we could she do a little research for us and give aspects and thank. You can enjoy it. It sounds like a wonderful trip. Get first class of your frequent flyer to if you accumulate enough. You can upgrade your stuff. That's mostly business. Travelers would rather tom. That's going to be interesting because they won't be so much travel burger damage. You thanks the airlines. Going to do about frequent flyer miles. Okay we talking flying sober skies but keep talking about it after this brief break and listen to ignite seven. Gbh boston public radio looking back to boston. Public radio more dragan. Jim braude. If you're talking about some it's driving me nuts this flying alcohol-free and by the way i'm not upset about that i could go either way. I'm upset because you're alcohol-free if you fly american if you are not in first class or in business class. I'm not sure about southwest. We don't know what your opinion is. Is this a good idea to protect the flight attendants to make the trip safe or is it just an equitable solution to what is admittedly a serious problem. Eight seven seven three zero one. Eight nine seventy diane email earlier about a nervous flyer gumy's man. She emailed back to say that she she has a medicinal card so as long as she carries it with her her gumy's or nervous liars not illegal so she says anybody who's flying on south west. She looked for her and it's possible they should sit right next to her and they'll be all set very generous. Thank you diane for that advice. Please send me back picture. So i can look you.

Police act pitcher for the cleveland indians. I mean i was also thinking of the pitcher who broke his pinky playing video games. My goodness but please sack is definitely the weirdest one. Yeah what did police act do again. It was like that. He broke his thumb by taking his shirt off too aggressively. Yeah what like how. What does that even mean. How do you do have no idea. How brittle do you have to be to be broken by our own t shirt. I mean if that's all it takes. I'm surprised you can turn a doorknob without needing tommy. John surgery you know what these players need today. Sheena what do they need brock meyer. They need steroids. God no good old fashioned. Steroids understand we need to protect the integrity of the game. But we've gone too far in the other direction. Now now players are so soft and weak now.

Were afraid of him. that's why he he had single. You sure you know that they would peel off a roll like a paper town okay. I don't think that's true.

"Welcome everyone to another episode of it visionaries and today. We have the ceo of four. Doc fran rush on the show. Fran welcome to the show albert. Thanks so much happy to be here all right right out the gate. What exactly is ford truck. It's got a very strong sounding name. Tell us what for drug does so before. Drug is a digital identity platform though for enterprise and large enterprise. So what the heck is that. Yeah yeah we enable our customers to really create really friction lists and easy identity experiences so that as an employeers a consumer. It's really easy to register. Set up a new account be recognized when he come back and get access to what you wanna do and then move on ossets really that whole process of setting up in your identity to get access to services online so this is a this is a space. That is very hot right now. We know that there are competitors that we've had them on the show so i don't or maybe they're not competitors so for for our audience. I'd love to hear a little bit of what's the difference. What's unique about four rock to give you an example we've had we've had guests from octa from off zero different companies here but i know that typically in software a lot of times people say the same things but they don't actually do the same things curious. What's unique about for drug. You'll let me just before jim. Braude into four doc. I want to take a step back. He said the market's really hot. And i want to kind of explain why yeah. The market is really hot. Right now. And i think some of this ties to the digital transformation that companies have been going through over the past fifteen twenty years where instead of doing business in person or over the phone you know. We're doing everything digitally as employees. Everything we do now online especially in this post covid world where every workers are remote workers

"What i consider to be. More of one of the anti-establishment comedians for many many years super funny man but dave chapelle will be reclaimed rapid cova tests at his upcoming comedy shows. It's probably not david chapelle doing that. Well dave chapelle inc definitely someone trying to as see why a it says. The comedian will be performing. Two shows at connecticut's foxwoods resort and casino in june. Dave chapelle is taking safety precautions into consideration at his upcoming shows. The forty-seven-year-old comedian will be performing connecticut's foxwood resorts casino for a couple of dates and will require all attendees to undergo a rapid covid nineteen tests in addition to wearing masks and social distancing within the venue. Do you know what that test looks like a cow. it administered. is it one of those things that i've seen where they stick it way up into your nasal cavity. I probably i haven't seen one. I'm not sure what the rapid test entails right. I'd like to know the accuracy of it. Like how how good are these things. because i feel like a lot of false positives and false negatives come out of the non rapid tests they get sent to a lab. So i can't imagine some some guy who's gonna like swab your nose at the door when you give them. Your ticket is going to be able to go. Oh yeah you're totally totally clear. You're good to go you and the other five thousand people there right. Yeah i mean. I feel like that's a good way to cross contaminate to you can apparently get these greens and cvs okay. According to a quick goo goo goo. I hate saying their name. Research gordon to a quick web search there s gulag search. No i'm sorry A web search. Yes that's right all. Yeah if you just search this Counter rapid cova testing in your hands where you can go to get a rapid test. But there's doesn't seem to be a lot of on a date on that. Yeah so let's let's talk about how fun it probably is to try and go to a comedy show during this whole fiasco and you buy your ticket and you're all stoked gonna go see dave chapelle new comedy show. Yeah and then you get to the venue now. Maybe you've already got like your vaccine card because you've been vaccinated or maybe you've already had the covid and you've gotten over it doesn't matter. Apparently apparently they're going to give you a rapid covid test when you get to the venue according to this article. So do you think the people are going to be standing in line six feet from apart from each other so instead of the line just going around the block goes around the next three blocks no considering the vast majority of people. They're probably gonna be white. I think they're all going to be socially distancing and being as scared as they possibly can dina how they usually have. I don't know what they're called. They're the little like pillars and then they have the little straps to like make people go and like an adult movie theater. Yeah so do you think barriers. Yes do you think instead of that. They'll be using those things to keep the distance between people to measure it and you got a back up a little bit there buddy families like what if you bring you know your wife and your kids to the show and you're standing together. Are they gonna force you to all stand six feet apart. Well yeah and are they gonna do. Are they going to allow max capacity inside the auditorium or base between each seat. It sounds like they said this article says in addition to wearing masks and social distancing with in the venue now i know nothing about this particular venue it seems to be a casino of some type. That's a pretty big casino in there. Have you been there. Yeah it's pretty big. You know. I feel like if it were me i would just do shows because i off. I get why you want koby right. Cover your but it's dave chapelle wants to make money. It's really hard to do shows right now. If i was dave chapelle i wanted to do shows. I would just go to texas and florida and places that. Don't have these mask mandates so new hampshire when you get your ticket just say come at your own risk and just because you're going to have more fun that way and then the people that aren't scared are gonna come to your show instead of doing all this security theater and making it seem like it's tsa inspection just to go see a comedy show. There was a group of us. I don't know if you join us. But what all of the was down flash mob at first when all this stuff. I kicked in a comedian. Jim breuer came to new hampshire. I remember did a what's known as a drive in comedy concert. And so they had him on a stage basically in a field. You had to like park. You basically got two parking spaces per car and so you park your car and then the rest of the space on one side was for your car load to get out and sit in lawn chairs and they had like a big screen behind jim brewer. So you kind of see from far away. It was lame. I mean jim. Breuer was fantastically funny But the the whole entire experience was just super lamb. Couldn't you couldn't they had people patrolling the place you couldn't go to the merch table Without doing the social distance thing or wearing a mask they had people patrolling the areas. Making sure people weren't using the bathrooms without may wearing a mask and stuff like that. It was super lem except for jim. Braude jim breuer was funny of he knows how to deliver a show But the in those circumstances it was super dystopia. And i didn't like it at all. I'm surprised i can tell other than jim. Breuer was fantastic. I mean he's a really funny guy love. I heard a little bit of his lead in He was doing an interview on the morning show and he was certainly speaking his mind about how he thought this was who he well. And that's the irony was. His show was sort of anti all this stuff. You know he was like what are we doing this for anyway. Something Eighty ninety nine percent chance of recovering from most of you. Unless you're over like seventy and you've got some other things going on. You're probably gonna survive. Just fine right. That's probably what we need more of is we need prominent voices that people that aren't typically political to begin with. You need to start making a statement about this stuff because it's just sad that everybody goes along with it in lockstep and to be if we're just being real. The average american looks up to celebrities which is really sad and pathetic on its own but you know designed that way it is it is well. The article continues masks will be required at all times. While in the venue the event page reads additionally each ticket holder will receive a mandatory rapid covid nineteen antigen tests prior to entering the venue if covid nineteen is detected by the rapid test that individual and all members of the same household will not be allowed to enter. And we'll be given a refund. so how. how much would that suck right you. You spent your money stoked you get whoever's in your household together y'all pile into a car you drive down to the venue you pay for parking and then you get into the venue and they do whatever they do nasal. I don't know what it is. They do for these rapid tests right but and then go. Oh sorry you tested positive right. It's probably a false positive. Here's your money back a chance know. Are they going to your parking. How far do you drive to go to that too yes. They came up from new york for it gas. Did you spend. Are they gonna pay for that to the.

"I've studied this in the kind of depth that i've studied things that go on record about but i think there's something worth thinking one's teeth into here so i don't find it incredible fair enough. What do you feel like saying about the potential that they're in these realms there are these other forces that we have to consider in a more authentic way with so many rooms we don't understand we don't understand prodigies and savant. I mean i find savant particularly interesting. How somebody who's really sit down to play. The piano can operate how calendar cevantes can factor any number. You give them but can't add the change in their pocket so they've got deficits cognitive deficits. That would seem to rule out their extraordinary abilities. So i think there's a lot we don't understand about the extent of our mental capacities and what could be unleashing. Associative context if not a context Extreme danger in a how people can suddenly find themselves much stronger than they would ordinarily be. There's a lot we don't know and an appalling lack of curiosity so angels and demons steve. Not sure about that I'm particularly interested in transplant cases. And which to me. It looks like The part spirits hovering around your vital organs so as we go forward. Take a big step back. You've been in the field of If we instill say parapsychology field and it is. I kinda came down pretty hard on it. Just kind of an illicit. Some kind of reaction. Where do you think we're headed in the next ten twenty years. What kind of progress can we make along the lines that You and some of your colleagues have been pursuing. Well if they go along the lines. i've been pursuing. We'd get the hell out of the lab and start looking for exceptional subjects and try to get a feel for the natural history of side But if you want to know where. I think we're actually going. I think they will be stuck in the same. Rut that we've been in for the past hundred twenty thirty years and one of the reasons. Is that new people. Come into the field all the time with no background in the rich literature just as i did you know i had to find out after writing a book on the experimental evidence that there was much better evidence and it's not as if there's a widely disseminated curriculum in parapsychology. People can progress through before they actually start doing research in the field. They start doing research in the field and try to reinvent the wheel. It happens over and over. Every young generation of para psychological researchers commits the same mistakes that their forebears. Well folks our guest again has been the extraordinary.

"I know of him know of him so i just interviewed whitley recently in for people who don't know Whitley strieber is probably one of the best known Alien contact is kind of in history and She he's done it. As bestselling book communion was absolutely culture changing in terms of what it did in bringing awareness to that. And again. I i wanna put it in. The context of people always have to do this. We live now in a post disclosure world so the new york times has published the videos. Cbs news fox news. Wash post. everyone has now said yes. Those are videos released by the department of defense. Those are craft flying at g. forces that human beings can't handle flying at speeds that we have no even imagination of how we would achieve and i don't know if you are aware of this but are exhibiting This again the side phenomenon in terms of Meeting at a predetermined location that no one knows. And they're you know eta showing up there in these in the craft and again i have to remind. This is not like Alien at midnight. This is the reports of the department of defense as published in the journal of record the new york times as i interviewed leslie kane on this show who was co author of those papers so as a lot of people have suspect a long time you know maybe part of our interest in this extended conscious says ben that we have known for a long time that these non human intelligences are operating in that realm. But we'll leave that to speculation back to whitley whitley at it was like nine years. Old is recruited into a special gifted children's program by the way his his dad is military. Intelligence is uncle as military intelligence. He didn't really put all the pieces together. But he goes to this program. And it's an m. k. Ultra it's another. Mko's reprogram because we now know mk ultra you know the us mind control program which we now know had like a hundred fifty different sub programs one of which was stargate one of which was mk often where they brought in which is are you know other people who can call stuff whatever we can do to reach that extended consciousness round but what witnesses claim is i can give you two or three hundred other interviews that do say the exact same thing and we have. The is that ritual abuse. There's a relationship with you. Richly abuse and the propensity to have dissociated by bennie disorder. That's given that's in the literature. So what whitley says is that. That's what they were trying to do. So as a kid they were putting these abusing these kids like the ideas whitley and trying to crack them. Open in a way to create disassociate of identity disorder in order to weaponize it in order to exploit it in some way that we don't fully understand but we have some ideas of how and why they wanna do that. That's a lot. I kind of put on the table. Do you buy into any of that. Well i know that colin ross has been writing about this for quite some time. And i respect colin. I can't say..

"Multiple personality and the structure of self. Tell us where you're at what you think what you've discovered well. I wrote a book about multiple personality. Initially because well for two reasons one is just interesting. Hell and secondly i knew i wanted to write a book on survival of death especially when i was more chronologically challenged and i knew. Also that The phenomenon in a multiple personality look suspiciously like a phenomenon of mental medium ship. And it's not that. I thought that they were the same. But i felt it would be intellectually responsible to Write about survival without having a firm grasp of history of hypnosis and psychopathology and multiple personality in particular and i was astounded and dismayed to discover that a lot of the people riding on survival. Heading aclu clue about multiple personality so my work on that has been to try to explain in what respect alter identities are different from one another and the kinds of inferences we can draw about the nature of the self and the big point that i was arguing for my book. First person plural. Was that even though. These distinctions between the altar identities are quite profound. There's an even deeper underlying unity of consciousness. Okay great so we're gonna talk about that. Forewarned likely just said i may not come down the same way that you did just interviewed a guy. I really respect a lot of you ever encountered dr bernardo kastrup lie. No who is okay. have you ever spoken with him or read his okay. So bernardo for people who don't know is a ph d. in philosophy but also pitched in computer science and has been kind of one of the leading intellectuals pushing idealism and really as a kind of direct contradiction to wacky materialism's kind of willing to be pretty out there in your face so he just wrote an article published in scientific american about Dissociate identity any reference to couple of interesting experimental results. That have come about one most from a woman from I wanna get this right. She was from holland. I believe and she experienced a black. She was blind in one of her altered decision by new states under fm. She revealed that the f. a. mirai looked to neurologist as a blind person so again we wouldn't have a way of kind of explaining that a wha- how does that how do those you're aware of other experiences. People can make a physiological changes to their body that are easily readily explainable inside of a materialistic kind of paradigm. How does that fit into your model. Oh i think it fits very comfortably. I mean when i talk about the unity of consciousness i'm talking about Kind of content synthesizing of experience. The kinds of things that i gather castro was talking about there have been experiments like that for some time right and i think he's basically in in your camp. Let me take a couple steps further. Because here's where it gets interesting to me. You know Do you know Whitley.

"I'm an ethical intuition est. I think that A most people have the same kinds of intuitions about what's right and what's wrong with. They are likely to disagree about is. What the facts are you. Get them to agree about the facts. You'll find that their intuitions tend to converge. Yes so i'll leave it go. I'm just always curious when people are really excited about one data set and feel completely a no hitter in a with a another data set but you live in a different in a different world in terms of like. I said you're the frontline soldier. Cyrus back what you've had to go through and you got the other data said. I just like to be cautious about putting myself forward uncertain views. I don't think your work reflects that i don't well. I don't think you're cautious in that. In that way. I think you're you're kind of the opposite of cautious and even your point about aggressive. Yes you're extremely aggressive and you you make some great points like your point about the laboratory work which we can just kind of We kind of breezed past. But i think it's an incredibly significant insight you have is that That the science type even in these fringe areas if you will frontier areas if you will. They still have this As you said a unexplainable leaning on the lab when that doesn't really make a lot of sense if we haven't i identify what we think are the what we would bring into the lab. What we're what we're even controlling. The skeptic see m hansel was interviewed for that nova program decades ago and he said it's easy to tell if telepathy israel. Just tell me what i'm thinking and i'm very sorry that his interlocutor didn't say to him. Oh is that right. Professor hansel well. Let's see direction. Hansel would not have agreed that he's simply incapable of getting it up love it. Let me switch gears a little bit another topic. I'm super interested in we're going to be. I hope people can read through this. That i so respect again. I'll say though the work that you've done the tremendous contribution you've made to science. I think it's almost like a disservice to say the field of parapsychology. Jeeze if anything. This discussion should let people understand that the the intellectual community as a whole and science in particular is it indebted to the brave work that you've done of being shouted off the stage and consented continuing to persist continuing to be aggressive continuing to not be bullied cajoled or co opted into sang. Anything that anybody wants you to say. So i i i respect that flattery will get you everywhere excellent. That will work then. Because i wanna talk about chapter eleven.

"Which people think that bearing the elderly alive leads them to a healthier and more profitable afterlife so they think it's okay to bury people all their lives. Those of us who think that it's not okay to bury people while they're alive. Because there's no connection to an afterlife Would disagree with that but if you could get them to agree on the relationship whether there is an afterlife first of all and secondly whether there's any connection between the quality of one's afterlife in the condition in which they're buried probably they would to whether or not.

"This is all just solid materialistic science. And we'll get to the bottom of it again the optics to me. I don't know but he just seems like a cutout figure. He doesn't seem like he's a genuine curious intellect. He seems like a guy who's doing a job in his job is to kind of bury this stuff. Otherwise there's i it's it stands into a contradiction to everything that we now know of What was going on inside that program. I'm afraid i have to agree with you about it. I mean i've known him for decades and he's been a big disappointment to me. I've tried he denies the existence of any. Pk despite the overwhelming evidence. And i've asked them at least to respond to my arguments and tell me what's wrong with them and he's steadfastly refused to do that. He said fastly. Refuse to look the evidence that i've presented the arguments that i presented. He just flatly denies it and tross out the usual. Skeptical thing it's all hocus pocus or mala observation. and so. so here's my question. Steve and i poked poked you with enough so then i'll leave it alone is what if he's just doing his job. What if that's what if that is really his job whether he's in whether he's instructed to do that kind of directly in a smoky dark room in the back or whether it's the useful idiot thing where you just find somebody who's messaging what you want and you continue to feed the beast. I mean there's no other way. I think it's the former because there's no other way to explain how this guy winds up running the stargate programming. How would that. That'd be the most illogical kind of ineffective way to run that program unless you didn't really wanna get results. Yeah i can't speculate about that. I mean it may just be fair of cy and i've seen it demonstrated very dramatically with physicists. I tell the story and dangerous pursuits about what happened. When i tried to give a talk on my pk. Investigations to my physics. Department of the university of maryland was invited to do it. And i thought they wanted me to talk about it..

"I'm not sure what you want me to respond to that. I mean well i guess. Original question is invisible college at g. Believe there is such thing. Well there are certainly. There's a network of people who already have a fairly well defined set of assumptions and intellectual projects and questions that they're addressing and sure. There's there's a subset of people more or less officially in parapsychology or who have been over the past three or four five six decades and their projects. They work on between them. That's what you have in mind. And of course they're they're not bound by the Constraints of University life and university life has become increasingly rigid and Unsavory in fact. I would say okay and do you might not agree with us at all. Which is kinda fine but I think we're talking about something different here. we're talking about. How often russell targ in there. You know anyone. I was for my people. You can go watch videos of them testing quote unquote early geller. Right and they're testing midst answered research institute and he's exhibiting in credible esp powers. Or whatever you wanna call it psi abilities so the point being that. This is all denied right. These guys are doing this in the seventies and ted koppel's doing nightline news reports but in general. The response was that isn't happening. That isn't real. That couldn't possibly be true. And i don't think that's accidental. I think that's again. I think the parallels to the ufo community. I think there's disinformation there's coopting. There's you know criticizing than there's controlling the thing but there's obviously people in our government who are interested in that are pursuing it in a way that is in direct contradiction to what is being reported by academia whether they know it or not yes and i don't know why it's being suppressed at the federal level if assuming that it is. I think the reasons may be different for for the situation. Because i think a lot of people would argue that If word gets out about having been visited or in contact with extraterrestrials that the public just wouldn't be able to handle it. I don't think that information about science phenomenon is being withheld because the public couldn't handle it because it's been out there in the public for a long time. I m maybe we ought to just move off that. But i you know i won't move off of that completely because i'll show you another interview that i did that. I thought was really really interesting to me. And that's guy. I really pissed off but Fema who was The head of the stargate program for ten years and very very anti In my interview with them. Anti parapsychology anti It being anything other than materialistic science and one of the most curious things about that interview for me is he wanted to correct me about the experience of joe mc monocle and i had to say ed what are you talking about the transcript of the interview. The guy gave me it was connected to his near death experience. That's what he was told his secret personnel file. They pulled the raymond moody book out of there. And he was just like doesn't couldn't have anything to do with Near-death experience or anything quote unquote spiritual..

"And she meets gentleman named chris. Bledsoe who is pretty amazing in terms of the Contact experiences he's had and he's Been kind of well documented. He's had these experiences not just himself. But with others of in his family and others not related to him manifesting different phenomenon. All this kinda stuff so she gets really interested now and she goes to a conference in silicon valley and makes jock belay and he kind of tours around silicon valley which is like a dream. Come true her. She goes to the desert in nevada and finds his guy who actually reverse engineer space junk that he finds through this means of kind of this metal detector. That he's rigged up again. This is you know. Dr dianna wasp asaka. She's got all the credentials and she hasn't given up any of those credentials. She's sharp person. She's not a wingnut here but as part of her book which reveals is this hidden college invisible college in jack. Ma i think is responsible for if not pointing the term kind of popularizing. It doesn't matter fact. She's at a conference when somebody stands up and says make some kind of question or something like that and another person cross room says. Hey we're not supposed to talk about that. That's not allowed. And one of her colleagues who she directly knows is brought into the invisible college receives a note and he says okay. Kind of fight club bank. I rule fight fight club is we don't talk about fight club but he becomes an insider in this has to do with You know basically et kind of stuff. But i think the same is true in in parapsychology in the sense the point i always point out. Is you know the m. k. Ultra project which allowed people realize it's m. k. Ultra but stargate the remote viewing project. You know if you go read if an interview. I read Interviewed joe mc monocle secret spy number zero zero zero remote viewer looking at russian submarines when he shows up and he meets russell target how put off. They are not. They're not trying to hammer out whether materialism exists whether there is an extended they are so this is the seventies. They are so far past. That i mean they're light years in front of that..

"I hope to shake certain mainstream academics out of their mainstream academic complacency once i can plant seeds of doubt in their mind about the way. They've been doing things that softens them up for getting out of that way of thinking and so that's the path that i think i've been particularly well qualified to follow. Yes and love your story you know. Are you Are there like they say about the pioneers. Yeah you can always tell the pioneers. Because they don't just have arrows in their front side. The backside as well so you know a few years ago i had an opportunity to actually had an email exchange with the the a well known atheist. Sam harris who news isn't known as being particularly deep thinker or constructing. Very good solid logical arguments. At least in my opinion that all kind of falls away pretty quickly but as always struck by his very matter of fact in your face assessment of parapsychology and sigh in exits backwater of science. That was a few years ago. And as much as i don't think much of them intellectually is spot on it's it's it's always been the backwater of science and in the years since we've spoken. It's just worse objectively. If you measure how many the search results you get its prominence. It's a published. Pervy papers. The phd's there are none you know and it's true. I mean there's one hundred and fifty years. It's been true well but it's especially true lately as because here's the point. I guess that i was going to make. Is that that the really the best evidence has continued to pile up. You know it's not like there's a few pine researchers out there like you and others who complete continue to put out more and better solid science that just gets further pushed repressed suppressed and. I wonder if there isn't more to that. I definitely think there's more to it. I think a couple things one is that most of the people doing psi research. Don't have tenure so they don't have the delicious protection that Tenure can afford and the other thing is a lot of the people who were doing studies in parapsychology. Now are still just following conventional laboratory protocols. They haven't learned some important lessons and arguing for decades now that laboratory research in parapsychology is almost absurdly premature. Because we don't know what the natural history of size we don't know exactly what it's doing out in the world and until we have a firm grip on that we have no idea what it is. We're taking into the lab. It might be as inappropriate to study it in the lab is it will be study. Courage sensuality under laboratory conditions. You're only going to get straitjacketed manifestations of at best you're going to get that in the laboratory you know. That's a really interesting point but i'm not even gonna go there for men and i'm not taking it in a couple of different directions because is where my journey has gone. So first question is invisible. College does there exist quote unquote invisible college when it comes to parapsychology extended consciousness and this all these phenomenon in general. I think there is what you. I'm not sure what you mean by invisible you know. I recently interviewed. Dr dianna walls plus salka. Who wrote a book called american cosmic and her work. She's in religious studies. She's doing these work on like saints and in the catholic tradition and some of the accounts and stuff like that and one of her colleagues reads one of those goes. That's a ufo story and he's like what do you mean. No it's it's an account of someone back three hundred years ago. Who had this so next thing you know. She's in maryland at a ufo conference.

"In general. Because i think it does relate to this. Go back to this term. i love you know trying to get away from causation. As much as can try and make it as impersonal as we can and so okay. One of my big targets has been a mechanistic explanations in science And taking psi phenomena and psychological phenomena as primitive incense. You know there's most. Scientists would agree that explanation by analysis explanation of a phenomenon in terms of lower level. Processes is something that camp continue indefinitely. That sooner or later your gonna hit rock bottom. You're gonna hit some phenomena that are fundamental that are basic or primitive and at that point you can no longer profitably. Ask how they occur. That's just the way the universe works and no deeper explanation will explain why now that's fine but would mo scientists also assume that wherever those primitive phenomena occur they're always at the level of the very small microscopic the subatomic the atomic the biochemical. Something like that never at the observable level but that's just an article of faith that is not an empirically established fact and it's a big topic in philosophy where explanation by analysis comes to an end. I happen to believe in argued at length for saying In the realm of psychology and by extension in the realm of parapsychology where intention plays in in a limited role patterns of peer. I at the level of behavior at the level of the phenomena that that doesn't mean explanation comes to an end just means that vertical explanation explanation by analysis comes to an end. There are still covering law explanations explanation by analogy there many forms of explanation in fact explanation by analysis like explaining heat in terms of molecular motion. That kind of explanation can cannot help us in the realm of the mental. I always wonder you know. That's such a great deconstruction analysis of the problem. But i almost feel only all sometimes like you're analyzing it from within the paradigm that you're forced to operate in you know because like your flaws for i mean if you take the take an idealism kind of viewpoint say consciousness is somehow fundamental and. That's where the evidence really leads from the beginning from the devils let experiment on and really before that no consciousness fundamental everything is in consciousness in his manifestation of consciousness. Not saying that's true. But i'm just saying from that perspective. I'm not even sure we'd talk about things in that way. Will there's a reason. I i do it the way i do. I mean i'm kind of privileged position. Because i had good reputation in philosophy before i got into parapsychology and polluted myself And you know there were people at the time who were saying things to me. Are famous low. Said to me if somebody has to do this. I'm glad it's you. I think you meant that as a compliment. Your so because i have the status that i had in the academic community before i was corrupted. People are at least willing to listen to me. Because i think i argue very convincingly for some things.

"Well i started out as professionally at least as kind of a mainstream philosopher. I hadn't experienced back in graduate school of sing. My table tilt impromptu sands with a couple of friends. But i was smart enough at the time not to talk to my mentors about that. I was busy in those days. I thought of myself as a kind of hard nosed. Materialists not for any particularly good reason. It was just the kind of intellectual conceit. I was cultivating at the time. And i knew nothing about parapsychology so i literally put it out of mind until i finish my dissertation on. Temporal logic got a job published. What i still think are some respectable papers in the field of temporal logic and the philosophy of time got tenure and then i remember what happened to me back in graduate school seeing as table rise in the air and i figured if i was an honest philosopher and intellectual needed to come to grips with that and i knew it at by that time that some very well known in great philosophers had taken para optical research seriously so i read what they had to say and i decided there was really something worth sinking my teeth into and so i cranked out a book. Initially on the experimental evidence thinking like a lot of people that if there is good evidence for psi phenomena would come from the laboratory. And then i figured if i was an honest intellectual i needed no the rest of the evidence at least so i could have a comprehensive context in which to place all. This and i was bowled over by the evidence from physical medium ship. And what. I realized that the time was that many of the parapsychologists just skeptics but parapsychologists themselves didn't know this evidence. They were skeptical about. Steve grew quick physical medium ship. Tell people what that means sure. Well people are familiar with the term medium ship. No doubt but there are two kinds of medium ship one his mental medium ship. Which is what we see. Most often depicted in film tv. That's where people ostensibly challenge channel messages from the deceased. Physical medium. ship is where mediums ostensibly facilitator mediate the production of physical phenomena like materialization 's table evocations wraps in the table and so forth. So it's where they seem to channel. Pk from china. So let let me descend reject here because I like your your your grumpiness in your gnarly. Nece about Some stuff. I really appreciate it deeply and i mean that sincerely you may kind of an interesting point slash distinction here. That has kinda curious. You point out that even people who are completely up skeptical and very anti Psi parapsychology medium ship. They get extra offended by the idea of physical medium ship. And i think he challenged that in kind of an interesting way. It's kind of a little subplot here but you're like what are you doing. I mean you're you're you're you're not accepting one but you're somehow showing an increased ability to reject the other in. What logic space are you occupying that that even makes any sense.

And it's sci fi film has lot of science stuff which gets complicated some points and you have to follow along but then at some points it just gets really dumb kind of like science. In general as is so beautifully demonstrated by today's guest the esteemed parapsychologist scientist philosopher dr steven brody for people who are skeptical about psi phenomena. It's almost as if availab- stupidity descends over them and then they start going into kind of conceptual panic and they panic more. I think initially over. Pk than esp. Esp on the surface seems to threaten the idea of mental privacy. It's very easy to explain. Why people freak out over pk. If i can move let's say a matchstick millimeter by thought alone.

When i tried to give a talk on my pk investigations to my physics. Department of the university of maryland. I was invited to do it. And i thought they wanted me to talk about it.

We're gonna talk about parapsychology. Just somebody who's it. Two things i think are really great one. You'll recognize immediately that he's very very very smart about a lot of different things a two. He has his warrior spirit. I mean this is a guy that has kind of battled against the tide relentlessly for. I don't know i'm not gonna say how many years but steve welcome back. Thanks so much for joining me.
