The Life After Death Project is a new documentary that was shown on Syfy in May. The just-released Collector's Edition 2-DVD Set includes a sequel film (The Life After Death Project 2 - Personal Encounters). Together, these films, from award-winning filmmaker Paul Davids, explore evidence for life after death and After Death Communication (ADC) from physical evidence, synchronicities, mediums, personal testimonies and Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), which is the use of modern technology to communicate with spirits. In the first film, the focus is on strange, apparently paranormal events that several university scientists conclude may be communication from Forrest J Ackerman, who died December 4, 2008 at age 92. Ackerman was a Los Angeles, California-based magazine editor, science fiction writer and literary agent, a founder of science fiction fandom and possibly the world's most avid collector of genre books and movie memorabilia. He was the editor and principal writer of the American magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland, as well as an actor and producer from the 1950s into the 1980s. He was also an atheist. He did not believe in life after death, but told friends that if he was wrong, he would drop them a line.
 
I talked with writer, producer, director Paul Davids about these documentaries and what happened to him. Paul is an accomplished author, filmmaker, and artist, who was a close friend of Forry Ackerman and who experienced many unexplained incidents that began around the time of a large tribute in Hollywood for "Forry." He took physical evidence to science departments at three universities for research, and the results were astonishing, leading Professor and author Gary E. Schwartz to conclude this may be the best case of After Death Communication on record. This is a very interesting and original piece of work. You can find more about the documentary at www.lifeafterdeathproject.com, you can check out Paul's art at www.pauldavids-artist.com, and some more tech inspired work at www.hackharddrive.com.

Gary Evans has been studying ancient cultures and Earth mysteries for 20 years. From his studies of ancient cultures around the world, Gary has realized how deeply our ancestors appreciated Nature; something many of us have become disconnected from in the modern age. His keen interest in an unfamiliar chapter of pre-history, before Sumeria (3500BCE), has led to the website www.AtlantisEvidence.com and various lectures around the UK, US and Egypt. He is a regular contributor to international radio shows. 
 
Gary also helps organize and lead tours to some of the most powerful ancient sites around the world. He has become increasingly interested in sound resonance and its potential to change our state of consciousness; he often leads toning workshops on location. On tours, Gary leads groups with an “experiential approach” in efforts to help guests “tune in” and experience the sites in a far deeper way. 
 
Additionally, Gary actively helps to promote greater awareness of ancient mysteries to the public as the PR agent for a number of best selling alternative authors. Gary's work as agent in the alternative arena has given him the opportunity to speak to authors, radio show hosts, and TV producers around the world. Gary has recently been working with producers for the History Channel, and as a consultant for a large number of magazine editors, TV and radio show hosts. He also uses his PR skills in the promotion of conferences such as CPAK, Awake and Aware in the USA and Megalithomania and, following the end of the Stars and Stones forum, the Eternal Knowledge Festival, in the UK. When not working on conferences he is organizing and running tours to Egypt, Peru, Bolivia, Stonehenge and many other sacred sites. 
 
In this interview, we talk about...
  • Energy at Ancient Sites
  • Acoustic Properties and How to use them.
  • Altered States of Consciousness
  • The Great Pyramid
  • Various Sites in the UK
  • The role of Crystal in the constructions
  • What crystal can do.
  • Healing energy.
  • Connecting with the Earth.

Aleister Crowley is a much maligned figure in our culture. On this show we set as much of the record straight as possible. A brilliant man, far ahead of his time, who has had a profound impact on our modern culture, is often wrongly accused of being a Satanist, a Black Magician, or worse. He had fun with these misconceptions, but the ignorance of who and what Aleister Crowley was, is something we clear up. Crowley was a brilliant man, an record setting mountain climber, a ceremonial Magickian, and someone who deeply explored our various states of consciousness. He practiced Yoga, and revived many old and lost spiritual traditions. He was also openly bi-sexual when it was in no way acceptable. Crowley died on December 1, 1947.
 
This night we spoke with Frater EnathelemeFrater Enatheleme has been an autodidact for most of his adulthood. He is now a student of biomedical physics at Portland Community College and Portland State University, a NASA National Community College Aerospace Scholar, and a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society.
 
Frater Enatheleme is a Thelemite, Priest of Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica, and Initiator of Mysteria Mystica Maxima. He is former editor of Agapé and of Lion & Serpent, and a principal contributor to Thelemapedia. He is a founding co-producer and contributor for the monthly Speech in the Silence podcast and the creator of AC2012. He also co-edited and contributed to the proceedings book from NOTOCON VII.
 
Frater Enatheleme has participated in hundreds of public dramatic rituals in the last two decades, in every aspect of such productions. This has included performance in solo ritual, performance in Eucharistic ceremony and initiatory rites, direction and production of invocative performances with full lighting & live music, and promotion and support of dramatic ritual groups in other cities.
 
We talked with Frater Enatheleme about Crowley's true history and teachings. His impact on our world and culture, and the common misconceptions about him and his work. And for that matter his connections to Egypt and the Great Pyramid, and the rather profound thing that happened to him one night in the King's Chamber...

Interview with Julia Assante, Author of The Last Frontier - July 6, 2013

We talk with Julia Assante, Ph.D., author of The Last Frontier. Julia is an established social historian of the ancient Near East (PhD Columbia University). Yet for over three decades she has also been an active professional intuitive. In her book, The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming Our Fear of Death, she applies the insights and methodologies gained from both fields in order to present a uniquely rigorous investigation of where we go after we die. Quoted from her website(www.juliaassante.com)
"The Last Frontier explores all phases of death, dying, the afterlife and how to communicate with those who are living it. Above all it is a critical investigation of what happens when we die. That means it is not based on religious teachings or on spiritual traditions but on research drawn from several sources: from consciousness research, Near Death Experiences and Nearing Death Awareness studies; from physics, quantum biology and parapsychology; from the records of past-life therapists, medical personnel and bereavement counselors, and from the many thousands of published testimonies people have given of their personal communication with the dead. It is also based on my own experience working with the dying and the dead as a professional medium. The social historian side of me examines the various constructions of the afterlife from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia to the present to show that cultures produced different versions of the afterlife to meet specific socio-political agendas. The afterlife religions currently teach are recent inventions in the course of humanity’s long history. So is sin, as we understand it today. In fact, the heaven-and-hell notion of the afterlife developed centuries after the Books of the New Testament were written.
One of its central questions The Last Frontier answers is why we know so shockingly little about what happens after death. Just asking people what they think happens is likely to cause discomfort, if not scorn. Others might say they don’t know and warn you not to think about it. Still others might recite the standard heaven-and-hell version, while the less orthodox will talk about joining deceased family members. Few dare to seriously reflect on life after death. Even fewer listen to what their intuitions tell them. We feel that thinking about death is macabre, unhealthy, somehow anti-life and brings the Grim Reaper one step closer. Most people keep their distance by taking the “I dunno” stance and leave it to science to figure it out.
Given that death is everyone’s final destination—our “last frontier,” you would think scientists would make every effort to discover what happens after we die. Instead, most of them will tell you nothing happens; when your body dies, it’s over. But how do they know? No scientist or skeptic to date has been able to provide a shred of proof that the end of the body spells the end of consciousness too. Even worse, they turn their backs on the enormous amount of evidence that does demonstrate postmortem survival."
