"I'm Benjamin Grundy joining me. Zahren right recoup always have the connotation of involving nasty surprise in some way or another. This one has a very nasty off the process okay all fantastic yeah very nasty ancient. Chinese surprise and eventually found this late in the day censored by Confucius Ghost stories by Juan Juan. May Oh interesting yeah this is from the Ching Dynasty and this guy was born in the early seventeen hundreds hanging second but store ghost stories from that far back actually translate very well to modern. It's all being translated by some smart folks from Queensland University. Oh it's really well done really well written and and this guy you on May he was a prodigy in the eighteenth century and in the Ching Dynasty in China and even still today they have the state exams which are notoriously difficult cold so if you wanted to get any position with the state anything to do with the government you had to pass these grueling state exam. I've heard of these exams were the kind of thing that people would study for them for almost their entire life yet and they wouldn't pass while there are some cases where people kept on trying year after year and even in the sixties and seventies still trying pastas exams and they could never poss- them this. Guy Yawn May he passed them when he was eleven. Wouldn't you feel angry. If you've had your tile. I've tried to pass it and some eleven year old walks it in this kid. He just became a state scholar which was an incredibly high position. he was tasked with incredible historical scholarly works for the the ching dynasty when he was seventeen he retired at the age of thirty three and then just wrote smutty ghost stories. I should say reported zloty goes stories he would it become a pervert or because the Ching Dynasty Confucianism Rights. Everything's things really strict. Everything's based on strict hierarchies. Everyone has their place in society. There's a correct way to do things and if you kind of go outside the correct way to do things you frowned upon incredibly frowned upon and he despised all of this kind of conservative rule of society so it's kind of a contrarian and away yes yeah so he started just breaking the rules and he started reporting on these stories that no one else would report on and what he released the ghost stories censored by Confucius justice and he called it since it by Confucius because that was so outrageous had such outrageous themes like even mentioned transvestites. Let's and homosexuality and all sorts of demon ghosts getting involved in those things back then as well and it was just it just was hugely frowned upon became the greatest Silla just sold millions of copies and he did this right at the end of his life he published two of these those a follow followup came later a couple of years before he died so you know they couldn't execute him for what he eventually the eventually the books got banned and and the the good people at the Queensland University Cam Louis and Louis Edwards have done this incredible translation so what did they go and dig up the old old manuscripts from somewhere and translate yet. It's all being translated and I thought this was going to be fun to go into because it does crossover with a lot of stuff. We talk about on the show. It's from a different different different cultural context of course but you'll see some of the same themes and I love that and I think that dovetails nicely with what I'm going to be talking about in the plus extension at the end of the show because was today I decided that this way I was going to look into that story. Ben That you're telling me this idea that Marconi teamed up with Tesla and mckearney the quotes one of the inventors of the radio and Tesla basically the fathers of radio so your assignment walls to find out about who was flying any faking his death hiking folk Anneli and Tesla and building a secret underground technologically high society in South America. That's right that was your guitar it a volcano uh-huh. Crater somewhere in South America and utilized this incredible technology. They became a breakway civilization. The sad part is is that I'm not going to do that. Story today a new coming it is coming or Congress that it's the fact that the book the actual full stores have found these snippets of the store yeah but the full story is in this old paperback from the nineteen sixties which of course there's only one obscure copy this remote up shop bookshop somewheres anyone copying Australia yes so I managed to hunt it down on and it is coming so hopefully maybe next week or the week after. I'm going to go into that story but I thought I should preface the story because what I did pick up from that story. Was this idea that essentially mckearney Indian Tesla created this beautiful civilization this underground civilization that was about love which is pretty much what the whole story caught it encompasses. I'm sure it can't always be that but and you know what I mean I kind of lean towards the negative anyway so the other store those working on wall back of course was Marconi and the the deaths associated with anyone working for my current yeah but I thought that was somehow connection to thought maybe people would affect their death so they could go to the civilization but no and my Kony is the will was the UK defense contractor rods specialized in technology and other advanced technologies weaponry technologies and let it became British British Aerospace Technologies British Aerospace which it still is today as far as I'm aware but the thing is is that mckearney allegedly and not in thirty seven but he was a millionaire and he was apparently in good health and just suddenly dropped dead and so the idea is like Elon Musk disappearing tomorrow exactly and saying oh he just he went for a swim and he never came back yeah exactly that same kind of thing so water ties in with a lot of the stuff that we talk about with the UFO's and the technology is associated with them. There's this possibility also -bility that. Maybe the things that we see that seem to be these foreign. technologies are not far at all. They're actually human technologies that have been developed by the breakway civilizations civilize actions but as I said this was not thirty seven when Makoni disappear when Marconi died but the reports of the contractors the British contractors happened in the nineteen seventies he's in the nineteen eighties but there were plenty of suspicious deaths now costs thousands of people back in the seventies and the eighties were employed by defense contractors and and by the Ministry of Defence and other government agencies but statistically speaking these types of cases that I'm going to go into. It's almost impossible that you would have that. Many people die in very suspicious suicide circumstances so things like people being found face down in close so they're not hillary sides. They're very close though people being found bound up by the arms and their fate in some spit roasting position with a ball gag in their mouth oh my gosh in a foot of water wow sounds like some oh my Chinese ghost stories but being declared by the coroner a suicide right but we're also working on a highly advanced very classified technology another about to reveal it to the world and they just happened to commit suicide in that fashion so we're GONNA go into that but it turns out and this will be revealed. The plus is that it's not the government. It's not an intelligence agencies this something else behind something very dark and probably the loss thing that you would expect was certainly it was the last thing I expected expected to come out of kind of that will be revealed at the end of the ghat me. I'm intrigued so so let's go into filthy. Chinese ghosts too now. I'm not actually starting with that because yeah I didn't find that until until the end of the day similar to the loss posh show I started writing this whole thing I just got stuck into this whole thing and then realized yeah kind of I don't WanNa finish the show on on such a cheese bowl of a content what the money shot to be a bit of a nine th I got. I got this recommendation from the author of the source and insignificance of coincidences remember that huge instances it was six hundred fifty pages by Sharon Hewitt Roll it brilliant work. She has a blog over Sharon role. Let Dot wordpress dot com where she recommended Dr Scarlet. Hind Bach spoke waking up to love. Corey but willing to entertainment. It's super cheesy but apparently it's a shed near death experience. Now don't think that con con spoils. What's what's going on. He had some kind of shared death. Experience led to her writing this book hanging shed near death experience. What people are in a car and almost dodd or the absolute. I thought I didn't know the answer answer to. That is the same question that's why I started rating like what is this to people in a shed needed experience end up together. That's the thing like whenever you look for stories aligned and for example about a need death or shed near death experience most of the times when people have survived something again. It's not the metaphysical but as it is that what this is a bad small mechanical I have no idea so on the weight of this recommendation because she said it was a real page Turner incredible story I picked up waking up to love by scarlet Hynek and yeah I wouldn't normally recommend such cheesy title but it's supposed to be paged tennis so I started turning pages now scarlet Hannukah lme introduced so she's had a tough life the point of the story where I'm GONNA come in. She's got two young sons one has epilepsy and the other has Komo severe learning disorders. The marriage is falling apart. She's separated from husband. That's hot he's taking custody of. I think the eldest son she's working multiple multiple jobs. She's trying to study. She's trying to get a degree at the same time. She's trying to teach courses. He's trying to do a million things at once and pretty much. She gets so oh exhausted that when she gets home for dinner you know she cooks a meal and she sits down with a glass of wine and after a while that single loss of wine turned into glosses three glosses ossis eventually the whole bottle and unusually more so she became an alcoholic and now on top of everything else she's dealing with in her hectic life. She has to get sober so she starts going to meetings to get back on track now. While she's at these alcoholics anonymous meetings she makes friends they obviously she funds it incredibly helpful. She gets a life back in order. there's lots of support she gets Soba and as you often do people Oh Cape visiting these meetings because they want to support all the people that you know have the same issue and she started to make France and pretty pretty soon she he is from these mutual friends in this meeting and their extended friends that someone very close to them some mutual friend of theirs that she doesn't know was gravely ill and on their deathbed and this guy's name was David and he was really close friend to to all these people that she knew and they supported him they visited him in the hospital but she had never met him and then one day this a meeting she was at the mating Lleida Dan he basically we stands up and he has this little announcement and he says look you'll know that our friend David is on life support and dialysis but the doctor said today that he's not doing well and the machines. Sheen's on accomplishing what they need to David's brain is shutting down and it's not looking good anyway. His Mother D- is here and wanted to say if he would so I'll all turn this over to her so he's mother turns out the sick man's militants up at the meeting and essentially stands up and just thanks everyone for all the support report..
"sharon hewitt" Discussed on The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe
"Defeating ignorance in our solar system and beyond <music>. We have an interesting name that logical fallacy. This week actually wrote a whole blog post about this because there was an editorial published in the journal Psychology today that <hes> <music> says that the skeptics are wrong. Joe Always gets my up six years up so come on people sent this to me so this article who says that we skeptics wrong when we talk about the law of truly large numbers right got this has to do with coincidences residences when things seem to be an amazing coincidence like somebody winning the lottery twice or you think of a friend you haven't nineteen and twenty years and they call you. Were you pick up the phone because you're about to call somebody there on the other line because they were calling you with the exact same moment on my the phone didn't ring that never happened. That's happened to me I've ever had all the chances are one in twelve trillion that would ever happen but it happens playing any game of chance in a very unusual sequence of dice rolls or cards or whatever happens we would say that well it may seem like a an amazing coincidence that defies the odds with actually calculated the odds things like that should happen all the time and what you're underestimating is the number of potential opportunities opportunities for something that's individually unlikely to happen and also the definition of what constitutes a coincidence is open ended did and so that open ended `Nice plus the fact that it's you're comparing like if you define a coincidence as the alignment of two events well it's every the event with every other event the probabilities magnify exponentially and if you think about all the opportunities for any pattern noticeable pattern of chance alignment of things happening in your life it should happen on a regular basis but what Sharon Hewitt Rolette wrote in psychology today is that that conclusion by skeptics is not correct because we don't know that the apparent coincidences aren't attack happening more frequently than chance DI basically arguing that they're not really coincidences. No she's saying that there's a metaphysical supernatural explanation for these psychology today. It's a pot I mean it's a periodical right. It's a pop yeah. It's not a journal Right. You're right. It's not a period Detroit thing. It depends on the coincidence sure you you don't know how many how often specific types of coincidences happened but there's plenty of times where we would know for example the classic the classic example of law of large numbers Brazil somebody winning like a lot of type thing twice. I mean sure winning at once is insane odds against you but people have won it twice and and like you said Steve It all depends how you look at it because the chance of John Smith winning twice are are many billions or trillions to one but the chances of somebody winning it twice actually actually actually quite quite a quite good and so we would be so we would be seeing things like these extraordinary coincidences happening more and more more like somebody winning twice over and over like lots of people winning twice things that would be we would know and that are not hidden because they're just a public thing that people would find out what about so why why don't we see these coincidences happening that are just way out of what you would expect and that would if it did happen that would support her contention but that could happen that we haven't proven that they're not happening approving a negative I'm done. I'm walking away mic drop. She's essentially actually making an argument from ignorance. We don't know how often these coincidences are occurring so we can't invoke the law truly large numbers but we're saying thing that I will I will say shifting the burden of proof right..

"We literally have no spe cables in the entire house because you know how you always have that drawer at <unk> Home Cisco USB cables and Nicey lead from two thousand to hang onto because you think just one day I'll use that we dumped it. All we'll today was that day is that that cable I know because remember when we will packing up the office and we had this massive boxful of all these old cables. We're never going to need those again. Let's dump and we did. We dumped everything I lost a haul. It's tough there as well <hes> Dr God we needed it to let a problem <hes> and I'm going to go into a bulk that are going to lead from Sharon Hewitt role. It's fantastic tastic <hes> book on coincidences. We've been covering recently. We did a couple of episodes on it and she mentioned this in her bibliography. It's autism and the God connection and I just couldn't resist because we've had so many kind of new agey types especially those who are into the hall <hes> highly go children Indigo children a hybrid alien <hes> children sent to save us from the aliens that hall saying the a lot of them come to this bizarre conclusion that <hes> people with aspect as an autism somehow here to save us at some kind of superpower. Mary Rodwell comes to mind she kind of ends up there and some of her recent works and I just saw this title old his men the God connection by William Stillman and I thought I'll give a shot why no I'm an open minded guy of course <hes> maybe people with autism are I'll goats. Maybe I've been wrong this whole time a baby <hes> the full title is redefining the autistic experience through extraordinary accounts of spiritual giftedness and I'm really glad I went through this. It's full of incredible tiles and stillman himself <hes> suffers from asperger's and he's written a previous book. I think it's called the autism experience and he must go into more detail on his personal johnny but he claims he was at the point of suicide. I thinking these early teen Angel Light Teenage Years and he claims there was a presence with him that it always been with him that at the loss moment where he literally had a razor route ready to go essentially stopped him from committing the date and he fills thankful like his whole life he feels thankful to this kind of anonymous Mus presence. Did it actually physically wrestle it away for him or just know him. It was more of that impression your mind just like that wrestling of thoughts and India it's like it was their guarding him and he really feel strongly that it was an external presence so he's coming at this. Obviously it's called the God connection. He's coming at it from a metaphysical Oh perspective but he has this really interesting personal experience so looking forward to going into this and also hearing about Moon Madness is definitely madness released extension absolute madness but it's it's fascinating because it suggests that this could be why we haven't gone back to the moon that Nassar Jason knows something about what's going on up there. Ultimately NASA wall supposed to be a public agency. It's connected to the Department of Defense and there's being a hall he move details tells us come out that the Department of Defense was conducting experiments and keeping things very hush hush and it's all because of the possibility of what is up there on the moon speaking of you've synchronised cities hold that thought I'm just checking my kindle Aubrey. I swear got something about NASA that came in today. Oh really it's from a former NASA AH scientists who went public about his U._F._O.. Siding and then was basically ostracized from Nasa Oh yeah absolutely it happened <hes> Marian Rodney because he's not and he's got a brand new book out cold into sect <hes> I was thinking of inviting him on the shot actually finally getting.

"Balcony. Oh collapse then you'll know no that it's me on the other side say that his yesterday standing on my balcony steady ties the toz stocked up properly guy. This is secure off. That's Richard Calls for me in the future getting ready to collapse balcony. I'll make sure you're not on it but I'll just let you know that I'm K- by collapsing you Belkin Greg so we have that category coming up after the break when someone makes a promise to connect from the other side before they taught and then that's that promise seems to come true in bizarre ways. That's coming up a mysterious universe. Stay with us so we're back talking about Sharon Hewitt role it's new book the source and significance of coincidences a hard look at the astonishing evidence huge massive Tome with incredible stories and this the specific category. I wanted to talk about association by sign promised by the deceased so there's a bunch of Kahan warming little ones in here like there's a dad who said I'm going to con- after I die I'm going to communicate with you by using butterflies and the whole family whatever and the debt sorry the son a few days off to the funeral he's going to his car and there's this monarch butterfly sitting on the door handle. Any immediately has the thought of his father because of this thing that he said before he awed and he's like Oh. It's a bit silly so he grabs the door handle. The car with butterflies opens the door but the butterfly doesn't move just stays on the Dole Handle Nia. It's a bit weird. He jumps in the car and then the butterfly comes back and lands on the Windshield D- as if it's looking in at him he's like that's we'd he starts driving away and obviously the butterfly flies away and he drives away to the house he was visiting it gets out of the car and a monarch butterfly probably not the same one but a monarch butterfly comes lands on his shoulder. That's we how often does the butterfly land on the shoulder and what's even weirder as he starts walking go inside the House and the butterfly stays on his shoulder doesn't move and then of course it flies away so I it's it's weird at first but then it hits like how many times does it need to happen before you go. This is no longer coincidence. You've really inspired me. If I die before you. I'm GonNa Flood Your House with moths like the really dusty ones as well. You know I'm going to copy the boss. Think of something original. If you open a closet is like a whole heap of fly anywhere you go. I think that's going to be much more difficult than making your rickety balcony collapsed. Oh good a lot of <hes> but there was a similar request. Where a before dying Mary? She told offend Christina that is kind of jokey thing between them. Slightly I die. I'm GONNA come back and I'm going to bang on your fridge to get your attention and I saw Aka. Whatever just like we joke about it right but nothing happened for five years after Mary's death and she didn't really Christina didn't really think much about it? Then one day out of the blue she had a dream of a dead friend Mary Mary and her husband enjoying a meal at a picnic table now..

"You just cannot penetrate the space or mobile phone signal just can't get through so it's like a Faraday cage and he would ultimately the next solar flare happens. I'm going to be sitting in my laptop. This is the anyone in here will survive the apocalypse I just you and me and you mentioned just you emerging into first of all we have to go and dry for our would have to try and repopulate the earth. That's GONNA get Oakwood very quickly so looking forward to this show because I started Dada doing <hes> the source and significance of coincidences from Sharon Hewitt Roll it on the loss plus episode yeah and this is encyclopedic in it's huge. It's like six hundred pages long. Something's not finished really <music>. I'm belly finished pot one. Oh well by the end of pot one. She's putting out feary see this is why I really like that. She's putting out theories as to why coincidences and synchronised cities happen from the perspective of of a philosophy of the way the universe operates and it's like a almost like a like attracts like natural law so law of attraction kind of idea will that the almost seems to bring a lining dining events together to put to happen at once like for example you you driving along and you're listening to the radio and a song about a junk yard comes up yeah like there's a there's a singer singing about junkyard dog and then as you driving posse look over and in as a junk yard with a dog in it and then you change the radio channel and it's an ad about some local junkyard the inventor of Junkyard Dog yes which is an actual synchronicity that happens and you just think well. What's the point evatt like it's amazing that all that happened within ten seconds but what's the point and as she makes his argument is basically up to that there? Is this kind of natural law that springing things together interesting. I'm really glad that you're going going to the topic today because I managed to pick up. A copy of Jon Foreman's the mosque of time and I know that we've been talking a little bit about time subs- recently so I didn't want to keep flogging that dead hall so they're GonNa get you know a restaurant however fortunately as I was going through this book I very we quickly realized that this book isn't really about time slips. I mean yeah some of them are in there. It's more about this unified theory about <hes> paranormal phenomena so when we had things like bees obscure as for example children that have imaginary friends to ghosting counters obviously two types of thrown in there but also pre cognition pre cognitive dreams it all links back into this fabric overlay of paranormal phenomena that sits on top of the human psyche or the human condition and as crazy as that sounds. It's almost like if you can imagine it visualize it that you have a bed obviously an honor bed. You'll have your you know your sheets and then you'll have your comforter or whatever else and on top of that they'll be a blanket that you may. I throw over it. She says this is like the the blanket that we might have over the top of it. It's like it looks flat <hes> but sometimes when you get into that bed and you're all around in the bed the blanket gets all scrunched up and parts of the blanket will collado the top of each other will become taught op within each other. It's the same with this phenomenon of the human psyche but in relation to time it's all linked in with time and time might actually explain why we have time slips why we have pre cognition why we have this extraordinary knowing it all links back into basically this universal layer that sits on top of all connected to we might be factoring in on the same conclusion potentially some.

"I mean, it just depends on what issues you talking about. Obviously, we're an oil and gas state. So on energy and climate change. What you'll find is that a lot of a lot of Democrats probably lean more conservative on those issues than most people in National Democratic Party. I would say the same thing is true with issues like abortion and the death penalty, although that penalty, the Catholic church just recently said that not is off the table, but we, we are slim, adored Catholic state courts, southern Louisiana's majority capital tirane Jordan Catholic. So abortion is another one of those issues that, for example, we have a pro-life democratic governor, but when it comes to living wage and equal pay and Medicaid expansion and a whole host of other issues, you find Democrats museum. It are are just as progressive as folks and you know, Los Angeles, San Francisco. So it really depends on the issue you're talking about. See you mentioned the democratic governor. What kind of dynamic is that? So there's a democratic governor, but there's Republic. Can Lieutenant governor Republican secretary of state attorney general state house in state Senate are Republican majorities, does the democratic governor have any real power? What? What is that dynamic like? So before he came into office, traditionally the the governor, no matter what the governor's political party was. The governor would choose his speaker of the house. It was just kind of, you know, sort of unofficial privilege that the governor always enjoyed when John Bel Edwards, the democratic governor that was elected in twenty fifteen. We saw a pushback by Republicans and they essentially blockaded him from appointing his, I guess, is chosen pick for speaker and in the last two and a half, three years, there has been a lot of really hyper partisanship in Louisiana, losing legislature. It's it's a strange dynamic because on on winning the governor, he does. And he's he's meeting with Alec the conservative group Donald Trump and and have met multiple times. But if you hear from Republicans here in Louisiana, the Republican operatives, they'll basically characterize as a far left radical. So I'm not really sure if that's a great answer to the questions just straight. It's a strange dynamic. The governor here is is caught both ways. So the governor did up to take Medicaid expansion, correct? Yes. Yeah. Has that been a popular action in reasoning, sort of been the politics around that. It's been hugely popular without any questions, but hugely popular. It's led to, I think at the last count it was about four hundred sixty seven thousand new insured people year noisy Anna, which is about ten percent of the populations huge. It's it's had a multi billion dollar economic impact, tens of thousands of jobs have been created or saved. And you know it's worth remembering that when the governor ran for election in twenty fifteen, he faced three Republican challengers all credible Republican challengers, and all three of his Republican challengers also pledged to to accept the Medicaid expansion funding. So this is something that has a bipartisan consensus behind it. There have been a few people like the attorney general who I think has ambitions on higher office who have politicized this, and I think have distorted the facts. There's another state Senator named Sharon Hewitt who also just completely misses the point and as distorted the facts. But aside from aside from those two both have clinical ambitions, I think the polling suggest it's been it's been wildly popular upwards of seventy to seventy five percent approval. Still in Louisiana this year, you do not have a governor race or statehouse or state Senate races. Those are all coming up in twenty nineteen right off years. Yeah. So what sort of turn out to expect and there's no Senate race in this state? I share. So what sort of turnout do you expect this year? I know a lot of places are expecting higher than normal midterm elections, but in most cases they also have things late gubernatorial elections are people fired up to vote right now? Do you think there will be slightly higher than normal midterm, or do you have any sense of what that might look like?.
