Galileo of Our Time

A Eulogy by Brian O’Leary

“No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it.” —Albert Einstein   We are heading towards almost certain global ecological disaster through unsustainable energy practices. Our addiction to oil, coal, natural gas and uranium has killed hundreds of millions of us and untold species from foul air, water and earth and accelerating global climate change. It has created wars, obscene profits and false economies that could do us all in. For all their promise, solar, wind, hydrogen, bio fuels and other conventional…

Cellular Secrets

By Cynthia Logan

Deepak Chopra loves to fly, which is a good thing, since he spends a lot of time on airplanes. He’s mused over the design of an aircraft that would be ‘uncrashable’ (“perhaps some kind of glider with an airfoil that never stalls, no matter what angle of dive the plane goes into”). He finds flying to be a very relaxing experience, and uses it for writing, meditation and rest. This week, he’s flown into Savannah, Georgia and now sits overlooking the river from his hotel…

Stanton Friedman

By Len Kasten

Of all the UFO investigations that could possibly produce the “smoking gun” sought by all Ufologists, many believe the most likely to reveal the existence and dimensions of the 57-year government cover-up is the MJ-12 research. If it can indeed be indisputably proven that such a high-level organization as MJ-12 really has existed since 1947, with the stated purpose of controlling the investigations of, and released information about UFOs and extraterrestrial visitations, then the cover is blown. Certainly, if the Roswell crash did occur, the…

Investigator of the Paranormal

By J. Douglas Kenyon

In December of 2013, we learned that author Colin Wilson had died at 82 of complications from pneumonia. The author of well over 100 volumes of fiction and nonfiction, Wilson, as the New York Times put it, in a retrospective on his life, “became a sensation at 24, when ‘The Outsider’ was published and instantly touched a deep nerve in postwar Britain.” An authority on the occult, ancient mysteries, unexplained anomalies, and many other topics, Wilson was also an early friend and supporter of Atlantis…

Spreading the Goddess Gospel

By Cynthia Logan

After The Da Vinci Code topped the best-seller list, author Dan Brown picked up the phone and called Margaret Starbird. He wanted to acknowledge the primary concept he had gleaned from her work: the idea that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalene. Starbird’s books, The Woman with the Alabaster Jar and The Goddess in the Gospels had given him ample research to back the material in his page-turning thriller. Starbird, in turn, got her food for thought from Holy Blood, Holy Grail, the premise…

The Blessings of Chaos

By Cynthia Logan

Sitting in his home office nestled in a redwood forest above the University of California, Santa Cruz, where he’s taught mathematics since 1968, chaos theorist Ralph Abraham expresses concern about our connection. It’s not that we’ve never met; he’s just not confident that Ooma is reliable out in the woods. “Nothing works better than a land line,” he says, though he’s dumped it in order to save money. “And I love Skype, but I have never-ending problems using it.” Surprising, since he’s a techie from…

Opening Up with Al Huang

By Cynthia Logan

Bluebirds, thrush and hummingbirds chirp as Tai Ji master Al Huang gazes over “unmanicured” flower gardens at the Pacific Ocean through his glass-walled office. It’s a stunning panoramic view, one that helps him stay connected to nature. “The sun is shining and the surf is surfing,” he tells me. Huang has lived in Gold Beach, Oregon for the last ten years, pretty much right at the mouth of the Rogue River. The house he shares with his American wife, Suzanne, built on a rock, is…
