Bluejay: Getting To Know The Mind Of A Child Prodigy

Dec 28

Jay Greenberg signed his compositions “Bluejay” because that particular bird was small and made a lot of noise — just like him. Jay told me that music came to him, fully composed all the time. He couldn’t turn it off. His professors told me they had never seen anything like it before, and in terms of historical context, nothing like his talent had been seen or heard since the likes of Mozart, Mendelssohn or Saint-Saens…

An Interview With Taoist Wizard Peter Ragnar (from 2005)

Nov 18

A fascinating interview from 2005: Andrew Cohen interviews Peter Ragnar, a modern-day shaman, Taoist wizard, natural life scientist, and self-master par excellence. He lives in the Tennessee mountains with his wife, and he claims to be a “senior citizen” but refuses to give away his age because he “doesn’t believe in it.” He does strenuous two-hour strength-training workouts seven days a week and performs record-breaking feats. He’s been a martial arts practitioner for over fifty years, and he has developed his own version of Taoist energy practice called “Magnetic Qi Gong,” which he claims is the key to immortality.

Dr. Bem, a social psychologist at Cornell University, conducted a series of studies that will soon be published in one of the most prestigious psychology journals (Journal of Personality and Social Psychology). Across nine experiments, Bem examined the idea that our brain has the ability to not only reflect on past experiences, but also anticipate future experiences. This ability for the brain to “see into the future” is often referred to as psi phenomena… Bem’s studies are unique in that they represent standard scientific methods and rely on well-established principles in psychology. Essentially, he took effects that are considered valid and reliable in psychology — studying improves memory, priming facilitates response times — and simply reversed their chronological order…

My good friend, Robert Perry, has written an article that shines a bright light on an aspect of reality that few of us experience. He begins his piece referring to a near-death experience that Beverly Brodsky had and then shares several other experiences that reinforce the radical notion that we are immersed in a reality that is completely different from the mundane, day-to-day, isolated, disconnected, often painful and oppressive reality our Earth-bound senses usually perceive…
