Pediatrician and neuroscientist Dr. Melvin Morse spoke about remote viewing, children's near-death experiences (NDEs), as well as consciousness research and mind-body healing. Remote viewing and near-death experiences share certain aspects, he noted. For instance, remote viewers draw what they call the "aperture" -- a big long tunnel that is followed by a rainbow, and NDErs describe traveling through a tunnel filled with light. "When we die we have...the loss of input from all of our senses-- that's the darkness that people perceive, then we dip back into that billion bits of information," the sensory stream that is the rainbow of light, he explained.
Children's reports of NDEs are special because "they tell you exactly what they see and feel...without any of the added embellishments," said Morse, citing the case of a little girl who was clinically dead, and after resuscitation said she was "shocked to see her [deceased] grandmother." Studies of energetic healers have shown they can shrink tumors, yet in general they have not been employed for this purpose, he reported. Morse foresees that within the next 10-15 years the use of such healers will become commonplace.
Interestingly, new research has found that birds use remote viewing for navigation, applying non-local processes to gather information if just for a few micro-seconds, he shared. Dr. Morse will be speaking at two upcoming conferences-- The International Remote Viewing Association (IRVA), on how remote viewing can be used to treat PTSD, and the IIIHS Conference in Montreal in July.
First hour guest, Richard C. Hoagland reacted to a speech on disaster preparedness made by NASA's director Charles Bolden. His comment about NASA being a Federal agency dealing with humans on & off planet might have been a veiled reference to a secret space program, Hoagland suggested. On June 24th, Richard will be a participant in an online video roundtable about the mysterious comet, Elenin.
