Episode 17 – Misha – Near Death Experiences Research Foundation

A near-death experience (NDE) is a personal experience associated with impending death, encompassing multiple possible sensations including detachment from the body, feelings of levitation, total serenity, security, warmth, the experience of absolute dissolution, and the presence of a light. 38%-50% of the American Adult population who come close to clinical death have had a near-death experience. Explanatory models for the NDE can be divided into several broad categories, including psychological, physiological, and transcendental explanations.[4][5][6] Research from neuroscience explains the NDE in terms of various physiological and psychological factors,[7] while some NDE researchers in the field of near-death studies advocate for a transcendental explanation. The equivalent French term expérience de […]

Episode 11 – Clark Stewart – The Mayan Rosetta Stone

A coronal mass ejection (CME) is a massive burst of gas and magnetic field arising from the solar coronaand being released into the solar wind, as observed in a coronagraph. Coronal mass ejections are often associated with other forms of solar activity, most notably solar flares or filament eruptions, but a broadly accepted theoretical understanding of these relationships has not been established. CMEs most often originate from active regions on the Sun’s surface, such as groupings ofsunspots associated with frequent flares. Near solar maxima, the Sun produces about three CMEs every day, whereas near solar minima, there is about one CME every five days. Impact on Earth When […]
