Most people, we think, accept the notion that other dimensions exist. Most, however, don’t seem to think such a thing is readily accessible to them. This issue’s offerings might lead them to think otherwise.
The Path: Beyond the Physical
The Monroe Institute
This is the second DVD in “The Path Series” documentaries by Path 11 Productions, produced by April Hannah and directed by Michael Habernig. This one also features Tom Campbell, William Buhlman, and F. Holmes “Skip” Atwater, as did the first one. Beyond the Physical further investigates the topics of life after death, out-of-body experiences, multiple dimensions, remote viewing, and consciousness—all the realms that are beyond our physical bodies. Focusing on ways in which humans can shift their own consciousness in order to experience the nonphysical aspects of our existence while living in the physical body, the film takes the audience through the journeys of some of the first explorers of out-of-body experiences, like Robert Monroe, to the once classified military mission of remote viewing, while the experts in the film educate the viewer about tools like Hemi-Sync music that can enhance the out-of-body experience.
“I am more than my physical body, and as such can perceive more than my physical world.” Does this statement evoke excited anticipation, or fear? This film provides compelling information for those who dare consider the idea of temporarily venturing forth from their body. What can be encountered? Are there angels? Are there demons? Are there guides? Our higher selves? What is our responsibility? How much power do we have? How much do we really want to know?
Providing enlightening answers and explaining fears that might arise, the “stars” of this documentary, with a vast amount of combined experience, offer a scientific as well as spiritual perspective. Because of these scientists, explorers, and pioneers of consciousness, many are beginning to believe that we are more than our physical bodies. For some, now might be the time to stop believing and start experiencing what is beyond the physical.
Paul Rademacher, former Executive Director of the Monroe Institute, asks us to think about radio waves, about television waves, and how you can tune to a radio station that is broadcasting news—there is someone, somewhere, who is broadcasting news. Then you change the dial, and it becomes a country music station—there’s someone, somewhere who is playing country music; you can change it again and get pop music. You don’t see those other dimensions, but when you tune in to them, when you direct your perception, then those worlds become real; they come to life. Where are they? They’re everywhere—they’re being broadcast everywhere. “For me,” he states, “it’s not very much of a stretch of the imagination to think that it isn’t limited to radio and TV, that there are other worlds that are happening simultaneously, right here! So, then it becomes a question of how do we tune in to them? How do we shift our perception so that we can begin to interact with them in a meaningful way?”
Thomas Campbell, physicist and author of the “My Big Toe” trilogy, points out that there’s a big, complex world out there, in the world of consciousness. “This consciousness system,” he states, “didn’t just put all of its eggs in this one basket. There are other virtual realities, and they’re all different, having different rules; they’re not all the same rule sets. When you take this as a premise, then you can explain a lot of things that are now unexplainable.” He goes on to say that the natural way that the consciousness system works is that it produces your beliefs, good and bad, including fears—what you are afraid of, it will materialize for you. You create your own reality, in and out of the body. You make your fears come true. “Let’s say you have a fear that you can’t get back,” he posits. “Well, up comes a big wall. If you run into beings that aren’t nice to you and struggle with you, then that’s your fear. If you have belief systems, you’ll run into things that work with those belief systems.” He adds that there are some religious people who will say that going out of the body is the work of the devil. “They are in a very narrow reality system, and they’re trapped in that box,” he says. “It’s very difficult for them to evolve and be what they naturally are—which is consciousness.”
- Holmes “Skip” Atwater, former President of The Monroe Institute, says that if you look hard enough, you will find that you are more than your physical body. “Many people,” he offers, “find this out through a healing experience; many people find this out through connection with guidance, through an out-of-body experience, through a psychokinetic experience, or through a remote viewing experience.” And he elaborates on the fact that consciousness is moved by intent.
William Buhlman, author and America’s leading out-of-body expert, adds: “Ninety-seven percent of humanity believes in the concept of a soul; yet, for some reason, the idea of experiencing what we truly are seems alien to people; there’s a disconnect in our society, big time, and it’s unfortunate!” And he should know of what he speaks, as he has had thousands of out-of-body experiences over the past thirty-five years. “I realize that it’s a multidimensional universe and that this physical world is just the epidermis layer. We all have the ability to actually move beyond our dense exterior, our facade, and start to explore these other dimensions.” He has found that a normal OBE can be changed into a highly spiritual experience by your focusing your mind on your intention, because your intention rules your experiences. “This opens up a door to all kinds of profound and advanced spiritual development, far beyond anything that’s taught today,” he states. “Everything is a thought form in a way, if you look at it that way, an energetic thought form, and there are many negative thought forms; so, yes, when you leave your body, there can be negative things encountered. I’d be the last person to say that that’s not a fact. The point is, though, we are far more powerful as creators; we create our own reality. We create it when we leave our body; we create it in our physical world—it’s basically, like attracts like. This is one of the basic things I’ve found about leaving my body. So, most of the fear-based beliefs that dominate our society today, unfortunately, are totally unnecessary—fear of evil influence, so many fears that are hampering people’s progress, are so totally unnecessary and are quite archaic, actually, especially these ideas of devils and Satan, and on and on—all of these things are manmade creations. I know this to be a fact, it’s a powerful fact, that one of the advantages of a self-initiated OBE is that it allows you the opportunity to confront and resolve your own fear.”
For those who need/want inspiration to expand their consciousness, there’s much to be gleaned here. Some hints provided by Robert Monroe are:
- I am more than my physical body.
- Remember that your ultimate goal is not physical survival.
- Reality is that which is perceived.
- Fear is the great barrier to human growth.
- Consciousness is inherently nonphysical… not time-space dependent.
- Consciousness is a form of energy at work.
So, if you are wanting to believe that consciousness exists outside the body, yet skeptical because of lack of personal confirmation, this film offers some available tools to enhance that opportunity.

Roswell: Crash at Corona
The Farsight Institute
Here is another Farsight Institute offering on yet another popular topic of great interest. Since Atlantis Rising has reviewed their previous DVDs (Cydonia Mars, Aliens on Iapetus, The Phoenix Lights, and Adolf Hitler), here is just a short description of the Institute for new readers. The Farsight Institute is the leading venue for large public projects involving remote viewing as it is done using methodologies that are derived from those developed and used by the U.S. military for espionage purposes. But Farsight is civilian, and they now focus those methodologies on targets that reveal what has been hidden from so many, for so long.
The UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947 is one of the most seminal moments in modern history. Claims and counter claims have rattled the debates since the beginning. Now, for the first time ever, three of the most talented remote viewers on the planet, all with track records in public scientific experiments in remote viewing, have come together to answer the question of what happened on that fateful day. Working alone and under totally blind conditions, these remote viewers produce new eyewitness accounts of the crash. In “Part l: The Crash,” the viewers produce accounts from both inside and outside of the spacecraft. “Part 2: Origins” is a separate DVD. Here, the viewers travel back in time to describe the origins of this craft that crashed in New Mexico, offering a deeper understanding of the beings who flew it, and who built it.
Courtney Brown gave them these parameters: The viewer will remote view the object that crashed in Corona, New Mexico, commonly referred to as the Roswell UFO crash of 1947, at the time when the object was located at its point of departure before leaving to enter the area over New Mexico where it ultimately crashed. The purpose of this target is to perceive the object in its pristine condition in the location where it originated, prior to departing for the trip that resulted in the crash. The viewers should describe the location and surrounding environment as well as nearby subjects. “Note that the words ‘point of departure’ are not precisely defined,” Brown states, “and this was by intent. When highly skilled remote viewers shift their perceptions to a target, they carry with them their own personalities. They are attracted to things that are unique to themselves.”
And these three remote viewers do come at this target from completely different angles. They all describe a saucer-shaped craft that crashed in the desert, but there is a great deal more. There is rich diversity in the reports among the three viewers. While they all described the same crash, each added his own observations to the mix.
Dick Allgire is first up. He opens with a look at wide-open land. He first picks up on sound, or the mostly lack thereof, as he states: “No real sounds jump out at me, pretty quiet; maybe, the sound of footsteps walking on gravel and dirt, grasshoppers and bugs, a little wind rustling leaves. There are just natural smells, a dry-vegetation smell suggestive of sage and pinion pine. Just land without a lot going on.” Then, taking another look, he adds: “That was more interesting! I got a streak of light, energy—that’s going to get my attention—with a whooshing, sputtering, crackling kind of sound. It’s streaking sort of like a meteor, but I don’t want to get too far into this. I’m just capturing a basic visual, and we’ll look at this a little more in depth later. Let’s see what else is going on here… I’m just kind of popping on the target, collecting things as quickly as I can… I then get a raspy-sounding breath.” Of course, we know the target; so hearing this from him is impressive, but as he brings in more information, he becomes even more impressive.
Next up is Daz Smith, whose approach is completely different from Dick’s. He starts with: “We have a structure/object that feels curved, solid, man-made, feels aerodynamic; it may have multiple curves. Feels like there’s a buffering, energy coming off it; feels like it’s in motion, can move at speed, feels like there might be a distortion of time and space with this target as well; feels very historical, a past event; there’s energy and different sets of life at the target, feels like there’s life inside the structure and also feels like there’s life outside the structure, like they’re watching an event, something unfolds here; feels like it can move in multiple directions; they’re in the air, a minimum of three, a maximum of ten. There’s other life that feels down and away, and they feel excited, scared and worried. There’s an energy, esoteric in nature, hard for me to pin down, an energy of transformation, which could even be death, feels very subtle, nonphysical, but even though it’s nonphysical, it still exists.” And he gets much more information that is also most impressive.
And last up is Aziz Brown, with his unique approach. He starts out with the perspective of a business-type meeting, and he states that, “It seems that this is all happening in an urban area that has a large, glowing, orange light.” Then he goes to another perspective, looking more at this orange glow that’s above this urban area. “It seems like there’s a dark area on it, but it seems like it’s enveloped in this orangey emission of energy, light just emitting off of it as it moves across this urban area… If I go inside this structure, this metal sphere, disk-thing, that has a circular shape but giving off all this light, there seems to be immediately visible two subjects, hairless beings…” Then he moves back outside, and describes: “Picking up more linear movement, fast and picking up pace as it’s going in a downward diagonal motion, but as it moves through the sky it becomes more of a fireball, rather than an orange glow, seems to hit the ground but not within the urban area, seems to have moved far past the urban area into this desert-like, dry, natural landscape, mostly flat.” Then back inside and he describes the beings as ‘not looking like humans.’ Much more fascinating input from here.
So, will these explicit descriptions with riveting details of that tragic moment in the New Mexico desert change how this event is portrayed in humanity’s history? Did these remote viewers really cut to the chase? After viewing this DVD, did we really get to relive this important moment? Only you can decide, but it’s worth a ‘viewing’ of your own!

Sasquatch Science: Searching for Bigfoot
This two-part program presents the world’s leading Sasquatch/Bigfoot researchers and features 40 years of serious, in-depth, scientific exploration of the Sasquatch/Bigfoot phenomenon. It includes detailed historical background, anthropological controversy, footprint investigation, film and photo analysis, and features researchers: D. Jeffrey Meldrum, Ph.D., John A. Bindernagel, Ph.D., Gordon Strasenburgh, Ph.D., and John Green, Ph.D. It appears to be filmed at a conference, but it doesn’t specify where or when.
Professor D. Jeffrey gave his presentation on “Midtarsal Flexibility, Footprints, and the Evolution of Bipedalism.” Showing slides, he discusses the midtarsal flexibility as one of the hallmarks of the hominoid locomotor system—the grasping foot. This is an adaptation that employs a well-developed, robust calyx, or great toe. Essentially the foot functions with two sub-units: the forefoot acts as a prehensile organ that employs this opposition to the divergent calyx, but the hind foot, then, remains the propulsive portion of the foot. His presentation includes a reference to a previous conference where he had the Patterson film running on a loop. He had several people come up to him, saying that they had read that someone had confessed that they were in the suit. So, he suggested that they watch it and then tell him what they thought. Over a thousand, physical anthropologists sat and watched that, and the response was very, very different. “Couched in these terms,” he said, “they were walking away, scratching their heads, thinking Hmm, because there’s no getting away—anyone now that really seriously looks—despite all the National Geographic hype, and so forth, about the tracks—they were not human-like. So, there’s been some reevaluation of the nature of bipedalism.”
John A. Bindernagel’s presentation was on: “The Sasquatch: Why the Concept of an Upright North American Great Ape is Unwelcome.” And it might have been of interest, but the background noise (like rushing water) was most annoying and made it very hard to hear.
Gordon Strasenburgh’s presentation was on the “Patterson-Gimlin Film at 36.” He shows a slide of his working hypothesis, saying we’re dealing with robust hominids. His model is that they’re hairy; hominid color variation, that is, black, brown, red, yellow, white; they’re sexually dimorphic; typically four times as massive as man, and twice the speed of man. They live in the mountains, woods, water, and the night. Their vocalization is a loud, bird mimicry. Here again, the quality is lacking. He talks about Bigfoot images in various cultures, like pictographs and carvings. He offers several slides and various readings.
Then you have John Green’s presentation on: “A Historical Overview and Basic Facts Involved in the Sasquatch/Bigfoot Phenomenon.” He has spent over 47 years investigating this phenomenon, and it’s been over 46 years since he started a campaign to have his information subjected to scientific exploration. “On the face of it,” he states, “this subject should be a perfect fit. I doubt that there exists any anomaly of as much scientific importance that is being so determinedly ignored by the world of science.”
The quality of this DVD set is poor, as it’s mostly done with slides, overheads, and a hand-held microphone, and it has poor lighting. But, for bigfoot enthusiasts, it might be one more to add to their collection.
