EARLY Report for subscribers
Friday 16th May 08

COMMENTARY: WHY SPREAD DARKNESS? When we returned from our tropical mountain break (see below) I viewed videos of two recently broadcast television shows by Professor Richard Dawkins. He is highly conservative, an orthodox academic biologist, a materialist, a 'closed' skeptic who is disseminating darkness on a global level with his anti-afterlife propaganda. Because he is inevitably wrong in his total dismissal of the afterlife, I have prepared a response to him.
I noticed that he attracts viewers attention with clichés such as ‘irrational beliefs’, ‘enemies of reason’, ‘false logic’, ‘critical thinking’ – yet this professor does not apply these terms to his own lack of critical thinking about his own personal beliefs. Continuously, he just repeated anti-paranormal/anti-afterlife prejudice and negative propaganda - and carefully cited very weak psychic incidents to delude himself and to mislead, to misinform and to misdirect others. Is it intellectual laziness or intellectual cowardice when he refuses to rebut the critical afterlife evidence I have on the internet, the evidence of the Scole Report and the brilliant paranormal evidence of Dr Dean Radin and David Fontana and the classic paranormal/afterlife evidence of some of the most brilliant scientists who ever walked on this planet earth? Read the full article …

: The author, DR Jan W. Vandersande Ph.D., has described in considerable detail some of the best evidence that he is aware of for life after death. He has based this evidence on his own investigations and experiences which include sittings with trance mediums and channelers, and also sitting quite regularly over an eight year period in a circle in which he witnessed physical phenomena such as trumpets flying around the séance room, direct voice and ectoplasm. All his experiences are described in detail. Additionally, three of his close friends witnessed full materializations numerous times and one of them, Professor Jack Allen, photographed ectoplasm coming from the medium as well as two full materializations. These four photographs are shown in the book. His experiences have made it possible for him to critically read a lot of the existing literature on psychic phenomena. He has cited numerous cases, which he knows are genuine and are some of the best evidence for life after death. These cases come from channelers, trance mediums, direct voice and materialization sittings. Several materialization mediums are discussed in detail, and some photographs of ectoplasm and full materializations are shown and are compared to the ones taken by Professor Allen. Considerable emphasis is placed on materializations since they are the most impressive evidence for life after death. The author also considers alternative explanations for these psychic phenomena such as fraud, telepathy and “super-ESP”, but in all the cases he documents the survival of life after death hypothesis is the most likely explanation. I very highly recommend this book:

WHO IS SCIENTIST, PHYSICIST DR JAN W Vandersande Ph.D.? He received his B.A. with Honors from Swarthmore College, his M. Sc. in Physics from Cornell University and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. He was a lecturer, then an Assistant Professor at the University of the Witwatersrand and then a visiting Associate Professor at Cornell University (N.Y.). Before working at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) –part of Caltech/NASA- for eleven years he was a stock market analyst at the brokerage firm Rodman & Renshaw in Chicago for a year. At JPL he was a Technical Group Leader and worked on power sources for space applications. After leaving JPL, he was the President & CEO of the AMEX listed company Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. for eight years. Currently he is the Director of Communications for the Hi-Tech company VIASPACE Inc. and spends most of his spare time reading and writing about psychic phenomena. He has had over 80 scientific articles published in scientific journals and conference proceedings and has three patents.

" Sooner or later, everyone faces the stark reality of impending death. Many people experience increasing anxiety as they face this issue as did Dr. Don Morse. Dr. Morse, a scientist who believed in the absolute finality of death, encountered a near-death experience that led him on a quest to uncover what science knows about the realities of death. His quest, detailed in this book, led him through the entire realm of science and all of the major religious traditions regarding death. After sifting through modern physics, research on near-death experiences, apparitional and out-of-body experiences, psychic phenomena, and a vast body of religious literature and theories offered by a host of organizations and individuals, Dr. Morse came to an inescapable conclusion: Some form of afterlife must exist."


1. Approximately 15 million people have had NDEs. this is about 12-20% of all those who are close to death. Among children who are at death's door, more than 70% have had a NDE.
2. The fewer drugs a person has taken, the better the chance of having a NDE as drugs impede NDEs.
3. Although the "tunnel" component of the NDE has been discussed widely, it is present in less than 1/3rd of experiencers. Some NDErs describe it to "fit" in or call any darkness a tunnel for the same reason.
4. Many more "hellish" NDEs occur than has previously been known, but because experiencers want to fit into the usual mode, they are either reluctant to describe them or they conveniently forget them.
5. In addition to being close to death, a NDE can occur when a person is in situations of intense physical or emotional danger. They can occur even if the danger is only apparent but is "real" in the person's mind.

CRISIS IN ORTHODOX SCIENCE: Professors in science in the Western countries are disturbed by the increasing problem of lack of support for science. Many science departments at Universities are closing down. In Australia, you need relatively low marks – some 60% in matriculation to enroll in a science university degree whereas in medicine and law, a student needs to attain 100% in five subjects. Why is traditional science losing support, losing status? There is a concern that science has come to a standstill. Orthodox science is stuck! My submission is that it is only when orthodox science acknowledges afterlife physics that science will take a quantum leap.

NATIONAL SECURITY WOULD NEED HIGHLY GIFTED PSYCHICS: Why not test all schoolchildren for psychic gifts when they are tested for their I.Q.? For those who have the ability to think ahead for our country to survive and to continue our way of life, special programs must be implemented. Intelligence agencies know that military psychic phenomena work and are hugely valuable. Intelligence agencies also know that some other countries regarded as 'hostile' are undertaking these highly esoteric, highly effective psychic programs. The proposition is about testing all schoolchildren for their potential psychic gifts. Why? In the future, military psychic espionage will be critical to win wars without dropping a bomb anywhere. The idea of course is to use psychic phenomena as a shield not a sword. But if other powerful countries are taking the trouble to implement these psychic tests and psychic programs and have brilliant psychic spies, no country will be able to match them. It will take more than twenty to thirty years to identify those who have psychic gifts and to train them - perhaps that would be too little too late. But from what I know from my twenty years of psychical research, psychic espionage will be more powerful to win wars than just having nuclear weapons. Potentially, psychic force is the most powerful force in the universe.

Wendy and I went have just returned from a week's retreat in a very beautiful, peaceful, quiet and highly spiritual venue in Maleny Queensland, in the heart of the Glass House Mountains. This was a kind of a search for refreshment and nurturing in a world which for all of us is just a short transition. We met old friends and fellow travellers on their journey for meaning. It was most wonderful being there on this magnificent mountain with so much peace, inspiration and enlightenment. To us it was like a journey from the dark city "astral" environment to the upper realms of the Light. Ecstatic while it lasted. This very highly spiritual venue has become irresistibly alluring to those who are truly on the spiritual path.

Before we left for the mountians, I met up with a real hard core closed minded skeptic – a former body-builder, an old friend of Arnold Schwarzenegger from Graz. I had not seen this skeptic for a while. I just could not believe it. He was deadly serious about his skeptical beliefs. I’ve known him for some thirty years – he’s always been like that. There is no paranormal, no afterlife – it’s all fantasy he said. Smoking is not injurious to health – we’ve all been conned by medical doctors about the link smoking and health, he states (he smokes of course). There is absolutely nothing wrong with the environment he says. What about the evidence of the Al Gore – An Inconvenient Truth. “Rubbish” he said – “that guy did it to get his Nobel Prize!” Perhaps we have to acknowledge again that there is a class of people who will NOT read, investigate or do anything not consistent with their own deeply entrenched skepticism. I will not waste time debating them because they do NOT have the skills, the capacity, the competence to perceive any information – empirically derived or not – with balance. What happens to these people on crossing over? Seeing they have a solid body, they will continue to refuse to believe there is an afterlife! Perhaps these kinds of people will see the light after another couple of lifetimes.

‘FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIAN’ ATTACKS OPRAH: “Oprah Winfrey has fully shifted to the dark side and is a full-fledged New Age spiritual leader and occultist. Make no mistake about it: as with Vader, Oprah is fully aware that she has made The Shift.” So articulated a dogmatic extreme alleged Christian Fundamentalist this week, one of many who are making a concerted attack on Oprah. There is a kind of self-righteousness and intolerance in these dogmatic attacks. Why use words like - ‘she shifted to the ‘dark’ side … the way Dark Vader did.’ What is the ‘dark’ side? Dark side is when someone shifts to do evil things, bad things, horrible things. No sensible viewer ever found Oprah to be anything like that – as a matter of fact, we see Oprah being highly spiritual by the service she does – the money she gives to charity, the money she gives to people to help themselves, by inviting inspiring spiritual leaders– such as the Rev Michael Beckwith. So, why the aggression? Why the violence? Why the vindictiveness against Oprah? I call it green envy. Oprah is regarded as highly spiritual by most intelligent, informed people. Is it because these alleged Fundamentalist Christians fear losing - or have lost - their congregations to someone who is more inspirational and more relevant than they are?

SOUL PROOF: Mark Pitstick, a chiropractor and psychologist in Chillicothe, is working on a documentary about after-death contact, near-death experiences, reincarnation and other phenomena that can prove the existence of an afterlife. He is working with Andrea "Andy" Lee, a nurse at Nationwide Children's Hospital, who is writing the screenplay for the 90-minute documentary. Then, they will try to gain the interest of a film festival, religious organizations or public television. See Mark’s homepage

On March 13, 1928, nearly a year after Charles Lindbergh made history by flying across the Atlantic, from New York to Paris, Captain Raymond Hinchliffe, a veteran fighter pilot, and Elsie Mackay, a British actress and pilot, took off from Cranwell aerodrome in England in their small plane, Endeavor, in an attempt to complete the first east-to-west transatlantic crossing, considered riskier than the west-to-east crossing of Lindbergh because of the head winds. They were not to be heard from again, at least in the flesh. Michael Tymn's blog has the story of how Hinchliffe told the world what happened to them.

I received this from one of our community members:
" Just come back from seeing Kelvin Cruickshank - The New Zealand Sensing Murder Medium. The audience was 1200 people. What is it about Perth?This city is just so behind the psychic/medium field - most isolated city in the world. There has just been such a shift in consciousness over here that seems to be quite unique."

Sensing Murder medium Scott Russell-Hill is doing regular radio spots on Perth radio station Nova on the Nathan and Nat show. You can download an audio of a recent show where he spoke with the spirit of a murdered girl- and explained the process he uses on Sensing Murder- see under Scott's photo right hand side. Scott has been having enormous success with his Australian tour...Read more...

VATICAN THEOLOGICAL CONFUSION? The issue of aliens – intelligent beings from outer space - having to be baptized to avoid being in a permanent state in limbo when they die was raised by the Vatican theologians. Now, if you fell off your chair laughing reading this one, I won’t blame you! But notwithstanding we do not have the original, authentic Biblical texts as to the truth of all theological matters,Vatican theologians are debating whether to apply the Church’s theology onto intelligent beings from outer space and whether they are born in "original sin".

AVOID BREAST CANCER: I lost three younger sisters to breast cancer. Research now says that it is possible for women to avoid breast cancer. The article says, “Get your daughters off the couch: New research shows exercise during the teen years -- starting as young as age 12 -- can help protect girls from breast cancer when they're grown. Middle-aged women have long been advised to get active to lower their risk of breast cancer after menopause. What's new: That starting so young pays off, too. This really points to the benefit of sustained physical activity from adolescence through the adult years, to get the maximum benefit," said Dr. Graham Colditz of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, the study's lead author.

By becoming vegetarian you immediately reduce your demand on the world's food supply. It takes up to 16 pounds of soybeans and grains to produce 1 lb. of beef and 3 to 6 lbs. to produce 1 lb of turkey & egg. By eating grain foods directly, you make the food supply more efficient & that contributes to the environment. It takes 3 to 15 times as much water to produce animal protein as it does plant protein. As a vegetarian you contribute to water conservation. A symposium of scientists predicted in 1995 that energy shortages, exhausted land, scarce water and a doubling population will impose more of a plant-based diet onto America's dinner tables by 2050. They acknowledged that this diet, borne of scarcity, would "actually be a healthier one." Surely, the sooner we all get used to it the better.

We are repeatedly told by people who communicate from the afterlife that their disabilities no longer exist. Some proof of this is given by testimonies of blind people who during a NDE are able to see. Vicki Umipeg, a forty-five year old blind woman, was just one of the more than thirty persons that Dr. Ken Ring and Sharon Cooper interviewed at length during a two-year study just completed concerning near-death experiences of the blind. The results of their study appear in their newest book Mindsight. Read more....

"When I am running, my disability seems to disappear. It is the only place where truly I feel as an equal. Due to all the positive feedback, I do not feel handicapped at all. Rather, I feel that I am the intelligent person that I am with no limits. I have a message for the world which is this: To take time to get to know people with disabilities for the individuals they are." Read the inspiring story of
Rick and Dick Hoyt (Team Hoyt) and don't miss the four-minute video of this amazing love story at http://www.transformationteam.net/video/best_dad. "May we all find inspiration both within and outside of ourselves every day to be the very best we can be."
