Thinking Allowed interviews on YouTube

I have recently stumbled upon the great video resource on YouTube. This is a series of interviews started in 1986 by Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove. Dr. Mishlove is a past director of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, and has served as President of the Intuition Network. The series is called “Thinking Allowed”. I have interviewed Dr. Mishlove in 2006, as he holds the only doctoral diploma in parapsychology to be awarded by an accredited American University (University of California, Berkeley) and wrote a couple of books on the subject. The interviews encompass multiple aspects of the subjects of psychology, consciousness research, alternative medicine and mysticism. There are about 60 videos at this time and more are being added frequently. Most of the videos are excerpts from the interviews but recently longer videos were added. I suggest you take a look at this great...

Bending spoons by example

A reader of the blog sent me some pictures of the result of her spoon bending attempts. She writes the Spoon bending instructions article helped her more than the spoon bending video, both of which were done by Shannan exclusively for this site. The reader also wrote the following: The first one was easy, but the second one i had lost my concentration in the middle of bending the spoon. I read the article and then I tried it. I concentrated for several minutes. I focused only on the spoon, which is hard because I am paranoid.  I rubbed the handle. Then I bent the spoon. The second time I tried i watched the video and it didn’t help as much as the article did. As I wrote previously, if you’ve also tried to do some spoon bending and have some experience or pictures to share, please write me to We’d like to hear your stories. If you feel the urge to comment that this proves nothing, it’s not scientific and he bent it with his hands, don’t bother. You’re right on all these accounts. So, finally, here are the photographs as...

Immrama Institute Insight and Focus CDs are now available as MP3 downloads

I have previously praised the two sets of CDs from Immrama Institute, the Insight CD and the Focus 2-CD set. These are layered-brainwave CDs with separate goals in mind. Insight ”…utilizes harmonically layered brainwave audio technology combined with soothing sounds of natural rain to help your brain quickly and effortlessly reach extraordinary levels of enhanced performance not normally attainable without years of training”. Focus, as the name suggests, helps you to improve your performance by letting you get rid of distractions and better focus on the task. Also, since the last time I reviewed them, there is now an option to order the brainwaves with ocean waves background sounds, or the previously available “gentle rain” background, which is what I have. Well, the really good news is that these great CDs are now available as MP3 downloads from Immrama Institute. MP3 downloads are cheaper, faster, “greener”, so there’s no reason not to get them. Here are direct links to the various downloads: Insight Program with gentle rain or ocean waves Focus Program with rain or ocean...

A contest of magnetic people

If you thought that Miroslaw Magola (my interview with him), the magnetic man, is somehow unique in his abilities to stick object to his body, check out the photos from the supernatural contest that took place in Vientam, where people stuck objects on themselves, including some very heavy ones. By the way, the winner held a block that weighs 70 lbs (32 kg) on his chest. To the...

Rupert Sheldrake talks about his experiments in Schumacher College

The famous biologist and parapsychologist Rupert Sheldrake gave a talk at Schumacher college in the UK. In this talk he presented his various research projects about telepathy, in animals and in people. He presented his “Dogs that know when their owners are coming home” experiment with the dog Jaytee and showed an experiment video that was done for Austrian television on that. This is a very famous experiment and I’d like to hear if any of you know of a similar behavior with your pets. He also talked about phone telepathy and showed another video of an experiment between 5 sisters which had a hit rate of 50% instead of the expected 25%. Sheldrake told that the overall hit in over 1000 trials of telephone telepathy is 42%, which is highly statistically significant. Do you sometimes know who calls you? Sheldrake performs simple and low-cost experiments for testing telepathy, mostly because the established science hold these subjects as taboo and doesn’t provide funds. Dr. Sheldrake talks a little about this as well, in his introduction to the lecture. There’s also a discussion of this video on our forum at: A link to the page on Schumacher college website or watch in below. Watch the video...
