Witches. One of the most persecuted, least understood groups of people on the planet. Blending ideas of occult magic with Wiccan and pagan traditions, practitioners of witchcraft have been labelled everything from demonic to jesters. For most of their history, witches were treated with savagery and contempt; they were frequently run from towns during ‘witch hunts’ and, worse, burned at the stake for their heretical beliefs in black magic. Sometimes, they didn’t even practice black magic. Sometimes, merely eccentric women or artists or alchemists that seemed peculiar to the hierarchical townsmen were cast out as witches.

Although archaeologists may scoff, Hestie Barnard Gerber lists ten genuine mysteries that hint at forgotten advanced civilizations.
Prehistory literally means the time “before we had written records” (roughly the time before the 4th Century BC) and ancient history is the time since our recorded history. Our concept of ancient history was originally firmly determined by the bible. Written from an insular point of view, the histories of some ancient cultures were distorted, badly neglected or even omitted. The existence of inexplicable monuments, certain man-made marvels and archaeological finds pertaining to our ancient- and prehistory, are leading more and more archaeologists to believe long forgotten advanced civilizations existed. As most of our ancient records were lost during the destruction of the great libraries, the following genuine mysteries are the only remnants of their existence. Read more

Does this explain why psi lab experiments yield inconsistent results?
David Metcalfe and I have just finished our third Evolver Webinar session with guests Dan Booth Cohen and Emily Volden and I have been struck by some interesting observations. The first of these is that everything fits together. That is to say, While my guests are all working in vastly different areas of research, it isn’t very hard to see how they tie together. Jim Carpenter’s First Sight theory ties together with the healing studies of Bill Bengston, which tie together with with Systemic Constellations which tie together with Rupert Sheldrake’s Morphic Resonance, and on and on. They are all very consistent with one another with no apparent contradictions. Read more
