    Awesome, really great to see Dr Radin on here and these topics finally getting more honest interest rather than ridicule. Another interesting guest of equal calibur could be Thanks Chris!

    • Agreed. Pasulka and/or Jeffrey Kripal would be great guests 🙂

      Jeffrey Kripal wrote two highly recommendable books: Authors of the Impossible and Mutants & Mystics (a personal favorite of mine).

    I thought he was interesting on the genetic influence of christianity, as selective breeding by the christian church is a bit of a topic in anthropogy, ie. this here

    great discussion thanks!

    To the person who you mentioned in the beginning Chris – who seems to experience every moment without continuity or context:
    I feel you. We might experience two absolutely different things but if we don’t – I suggest you look into DID or multiple personality disorder. That’s what gave me that sense of constant incoherence of why the fuck is everything different all the time and I’ll never know what the world will be like tomorrow. I was essentially experiencing life through different alters (personality fragments) who would switch without me noticing. If you don’t have it – congrats! If you do and this is your moment realizing it – shit gets better 😀

    Much love to you, Chris & all listeners.
    Greetings from Potsdam
