Contact With Our Hidden Mental Life
Consciousness Unbound

  At any given moment we’re conscious of a tiny portion of our immense, multi-layered mental life.   It’s worth reminding ourselves of that.  There is more going on in us than we suspect. More forms of consciousness and creativity than we might imagine.  I’ll take that as a bit of good news from nature.   Each of us, I believe, harbors a portion of creative genius within us. But how do we  contact this hidden power?  Easier said than done. If only we could go to the supermarket and pick up a supply of creative energy when in need. But no.  It’s a tr ..read more

Facing The Final Choice

The editor of my first book suggested I call it The Final Choice.  I thought the title was  overdramatic and a bit grandiose.  I did in part write the book in response to what seemed like the growing threat of nuclear war.   Recently (2017), White Crow Books graciously offered to reprint the book.  I reduced the size of it and changed the subtitle to Death or Transcendence?  The book then is a question.  Either we get beyond ourselves, renounce our fanatical lust for land, power, and privilege, or we go on killing and laying waste to each other, until we ..read more

Another Tale of Animal Psi

 When I was a kid in New York City I remember watching with awe a movie called Lassie Come Home.   About a lost dog and the adventures finding its way back home—I was enthralled by this story, myself not having a cat or dog in our small apartment.  At that time, I had no idea about dogs or people with so-called “psychic” abilities.  When I grew up, however, I started to hear stories about psychic people, and had  some odd experiences myself.   Discussing the idea of psychic ability with a fellow graduate student at Columbia University, he told me a story hard ..read more

    Wonders in the Sky   An eclipse...

    Wonders in the Sky   An eclipse of the sun can cause millions of people to gaze up at the open sky. The sky and its wonders stir the imagination.  In fact, the open sky is a scene of all sorts of wonders, not just the rare coincidence of the moon blocking the sun for a short while.   It is a fact that people see mysterious lights, forms, objects in the sky that move about in strange ways, unlike any known to terrestrial science.  The study of these fascinating sky-born irregularities is called ufology.  I’ve been working on a report about the connection b ..read more

A Strange Light Experience

 From time to time I’ve  had experiences certifiably paranormal: telepathic, ghostly, precognitive,  psychokinetic.  But on the day after Christmas in 2020, actually after midnight on the next  day, I experienced something unlike anything I ever experienced before.   The context.  I was in high spirits,  working on a large painting and, at that moment, writing a blog-post for the following day. It was about one-thirty in the morning, my body felt tired, but my mind was clear.  I’m concentrating on the point I’m about to formulate and type out on my ..read more

What Our Minds Can Do To Our Bodies

It’s not every day that the New York Times reports on the mysteries of mind and body.  There was, however, a report in the Times (Sept 9, 2023) by Ruth Graham of an apparent case of bodily incorruption in America. It happened to Sister Wilhelmina Lancaster from the Abbey of Our Lady of Ephesus, a small order located in the hills north of Kansas city.  Four years after her death it was decided to move her body to a more conspicuous place inside the church.  Upon opening her coffin and expecting to find dust and bones, they found Wilhelmina (a Black woman) with her body and face i ..read more

The Highest Mental State

Is there a preferred state of mind, an optimal form of consciousness, a way to open  the creative flow of our lives?  It can be a wild beast, that mind of ours.  Are there states of mind that can lift us out of our routine everyday selves?   A particular state of mind we should think about?   I think there is, and it’s a state we’re all acquainted with, at least to some degree.  The common word for it is ecstasy.   We can all in one way or another relate to this word.  The usage ranges from “Mom, I’m ecstatic about that gorgeous red blouse you bough ..read more

Ufology and Parapsychology: A Key Combination

The two disciplines in the title, outlaws in  academia, are not on friendly terms with each other.  But that’s a mistake. The two fields of research naturally converge into one, more interesting discipline than either operating on their own.   Full disclosure, I write about this because I’m trying to understand my own experiences.   I am periodically befuddled by experiences that seem incredible and impossible.  So let me begin with a report of my own experience: a UAP, an unidentified aerial phenomenon. My experience was more than a sighting.  It was contact ..read more

Lying Our Way Toward Global Catastrophe

Despite their great achievements, science and technology have brought us to the brink of nuclear annihilation and launched what may be an irreversible climate catastrophe. As I write, arms sales are sky-rocketing all over the planet. Meanwhile, the corporate energy magnates show few signs of shifting toward sustainable forms of energy production.  They lie and temporize, anything to cling to their enormous profits.      The climate crisis is denied and the weapons salesmen insist on the need for self-defense.  Can a society with a warped sense of truth long survive?&nb ..read more

Ghost Encounter

To add to the fun of Halloween , let me tell you a true ghost story.  Some years ago I met a woman who told me about a ghost that was bothering her family where she lived in a small town of New Jersey.  This woman was a nurse and a brilliant student of anthropology. She had two younger daughters.  She explained that this ghost liked to appear in the bathroom where she and her daughters showered.  In short, this ghost was a double creep—a creepy ghost and creepy gaper at the girls while they showered.  All in all, about nine people , including her husband and friends ha ..read more
