Something like this. The universe in its kindness/fairness leaves plenty of resources laying about the paradigm available to those how go seeking to understand more. Laura walked into this, and said hey look here! Many of us followed (some reluctantly e.g., me) and said hey! look, MAPS! And instruction MANUALS! Wait a minute, let me check…yes and they work too! The treasure had been obscured in the corner of the paradigm as a silly obsession, and the sexy covers did a good job of camouflage. But we found them anyway.

The interview help confirm my suspicion that writers like Mary are downloading, probably each according to they’re FRV and availability. Mary’s personality was not disappointing, quiet a breath of fresh air.

After thoughts:

Why does Mary avoid the sexy covers? Purposely? And if so, was that a struggle with the publishers?

Any conjecture as to why males are repulsed by the sex in the novels? More than just hormonal chemistry, or is that all it is?

Thanks for the interview.

Thank you very Harrison, Elan and Adam and Mary Balogh for the interview, it was very pleasant to watch it and heartwarming as well. As Laura has mentioned on the romance novels thread and other members mentioned here me thinks that she really is doing a sort of channeling by tapping into the Information Field.

One thing is sure for me at least, she and other like minded writers did and are doing a great service to everyone who are reading their novels for the values that are being promoted through the stories of the books, values that if are being accepted and implemented in one's life can lead to unimaginable changes of one's very soul.

Also would like to add that I've found Mary Balogh a kind, humble and wise lady, more or less on our wavelength. One of us so to say. ;-D

Lovely interview you guys, and she was as sweet and kind as her writing would have us see her. I do think some of her christian background aided by her eastern delving has seeped into her writing and the results are truly phenomenal.

What was surprising to me was her description of her writing process and how it was nearly 100% intuitive, free-form, stream-of-consciousness, ect. Her characters are many, all of them vastly complicated, and the stories are as smooth as a perfectly iced cake. How does one improv that? Perhaps I am neither a writer nor intuitive, but it seems to me to take an incredible amount of talent to write as well as she does. She sure is gifted!
It's interesting that she described the process as such, I had my suspicions as you can almost feel it, the stories she writes start rather simple and then grow deeper and deeper almost organically. Without noticing I usually go from: "ok, I can see where this is going.." to "oh my god! he did not say that! What's going to happen now?"

I was also very pleased to hear her say that she really can't take credit for it, but rather take credit for learning how to use this downloading ability of sorts, very humble. She was lovely through and through.

Terrific interview guys!

What a totally charming, generous and disarming lady - she seemed a little nervous at first but once underway she really shone.

She seriously considered any questions put to her for a while and avoided any pat replies - which I think spoke volumes about her character and personality.

I also like the fact that she had retained her lilting Welsh accent even after living in Canada for over 50 years. She born in Swansea in this part of South Wales local to myself. (The some place that gave birth to one of the towering poets and writers of the twentieth century - Dylan Thomas. Dylan Thomas - Wikipedia

I can't help but wonder if he served as an inspiration or otherwise influenced her in any way to become such a gifted writer).

Hi Mind Matters crew. I’ve mentioned on my Marriage thread that I would be happy to help with improving the sound of your podcast, and any other podcast being done by the different FOTCM crews. I’m a professional audio engineer with a small podcast production company and would love to offer my expertise to help improve the programmes. I know you guys do it yourself, but I’m sure we could come up with an unobtrusive process where I can get the audio to higher level and not interfere with your existing process too much. It wouldn’t be too much work for me to do and I know there’s room for improvement. Let me know if you’re interested. Btw, I’m really enjoying all the episodes so far. Keep up the good work

We were inspired to revisit the subject of the 'afterlife' for the most recent show after watching a fairly new and good docu-series on Netflix:

MindMatters: Surviving Materialism, Accepting the Afterlife


Despite the plethora of anecdotes and scientific studies suggesting the existence of an 'afterlife,' the Western world as a whole is still largely in the dark about this all-important subject. Though good information does continue to present itself, there are many who are all-too-willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater - with a bucket of dogma informed by scientific materialism.

This week on MindMatters we look at some of the most interesting research on the subject, including the recent Netflix docu-series Surviving Death, based on journalist Leslie Kean's book of the same name. We also look at its relationship to consciousness, psi and values - and how the largely narrow perspective on these themes only goes to serve the "modern" trend to accept the nihilistic and toxic strain of ideologies, postmodernism, scientism, and other limiting belief systems. (See also Stephen Braude's Immortal Remains)

I found this talk fascinating, The age old question what are we and who we are also the massive question of what is life and how we interpret that, especially at this time in world history. Starting to watch the Netflix show, first episode, Surviving Death, which to my mind brings up many more questions that can be answered. in this episode, and many philosophical and metaphysical questions for humanity.

Well for one, is death really, the be and all end of life in the human body and mind to asses life, in a human body, with the technology we have available to us at this time? Also do individuals, that have a soul potential, have a differing experience from, say, those that could be considered Organic Portals. One interviewer said in this episode, they saw fishes swimming in the sea, and could feel as part on one. Another said they were part of leaves on a tree. The whole interview was edited, so difficult to asses the real meaning of those statements.

Seems to me that great physical trauma brings about a psycho spiritual change in the individual experiencing those traumatic experiences. And not just physical trauma, with OOB experiences, but with emotional trauma, which possibly at this time could be even more damaging. For the future of humanity.

It's as though trauma throught of emotional pathways has precipitated some kind of spiritual reset. A realization, that we not just a body, as the C's have said, we are a spirit/soul, living in to use my own thought and words (maybe not, just borrowed from the C's :-)) a multidimensional universe.

Will hopefully contine to post on this thread, because, this is the greatest question that has grabbed my mind heart and soul, almost all my life from the age of 15

Revisiting another big subject here the most recent MindMatters show is an interview with Philip Barlag, author of a great little volume called The Leadership Genius of Julius Caesar.
This Balag interview was followed by the Balogh interview, and had not caught the former interview until late last night, although was more than aware of it and thought only to catch a part of it for now - could not turn it off.

What a great find in this man who studied and wrote what he did, and how you folks where able to ask him questions (which you would have many) on Caesar's life - as can best can be known from other writer of history. So indeed, this interview left me with a better knowing of his life, along with some subtitles that I had not realized.

Excellent show!

Of course, and a historical shame:

All Caesar’s speeches and writings, lost and extant, apparently served political purposes.

From the Forum's Book list, here are some other titles on Caesar:

Gallic War and Civil War - Julius Caesar
The Civil Wars - Appian
The Ancient City: A Study on the Religion, Laws, and Institutions of Greece and Rome13.2 - Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges
Escape from Evil7.13 - Ernest Becker

Caesar: Politician and Statesman - Mattias Gelzer
The Assassination of Julius Caesar - Michael Parenti
Julius Caesar - Philip Freeman
Et tu Judas! Then Fall Jesus - Gary Courtney

There is also this most interesting thread (74 pages).

MindMatters' new show covers some very interesting subject matter which ties some rather big and (seemingly) separate developments together...

MindMatters: Woke Revolution, Mass Hysteria, and the Fourth Turning


The 2010s and 2020s are a crisis point in Western societies - a time that has the potential to give birth to something better than what came before, or something much, much worse. Today on MindMatters we're going cyclical. The hysteroidal cycle from Lobaczewski's Political Ponerology, generational theory from Strauss and Howe's The Fourth Turning. And along the way, we take a gander at some of the sparks of mass hysteria in recent years, culled from James Lindsay's article, "The Rise of the Woke Cultural Revolution."


And Harrison just did a show with the excellent Joshua Slocum for Josh's Disaffected Podcast. A great discussion where we once again see the light bulbs rapidly brightening around Josh's head, and we get to enjoy his own informed perspective.

Hiding in Plain Sight


1) LGBTQ continues to build candy cottages to lure children into adult games. 2) Podcast host Harrison Koehli of Mind Matters introduces us to Political Ponerology, the psychological study of evil. 3) When everyone is sick, no one is sick: Pandemic paranoia is masking a rise in real mental disorders like hypochondria and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

Caught the 37 min. or so portion of Josh's interview (and a bit of the lead-up portion). Good job, Harrison, with an otherwise limiting amount of time in which to speak on the subject of PP.

Will be sure to catch the rest of Josh's show, too.

Really did like the interview with Joshua. I think it's refreshing to see other people finding these things for the first time.

Just thinking about guests again, Tammy Peterson has started doing interview with people - and she keeps touching on all sorts of subjects that you guys have discussed/we discuss on the forum.
I'm not quite sure how an interview would go, or how close her understanding is to ours, but it might be something to consider?
Here's an example:

Matthew Ehret and SOTT thank you! By the way I did a song with the allegory of the cave by Plato: it's in English and the Plato part in french first then in English behind Andrew, I dedicate it to your show, this is timely:

Presently watching today's Matthew Ehret: Technocracy's Seeds of Transhumanism
What a fantastic show and a brilliant interview! Some references hit close to home, as I was born in Montreal in 1959. Electrochocs are still a current therapy in Québec.

We're glad you're enjoying it! Matthew sure does make some intriguing and timely connections doesn't he?

And we recommend reading the referenced articles discussed (links below).

The 're-organization' of the world's societies, cultures, economies and politics seem to be occurring at an ever rapid clip. Groups like the WEF, UNESCO, the WHO and other hugely influential and interconnected bodies all seem to be telling us, and the governments of the world, 'how it's going to be', and why it is 'all for our own good'. A relatively small group of individuals are actually redefining what healthy means, how we should think about money, food, technology, ideologies, the weather, and even each other. These people have formed a technocratic infrastructure with a reach and a wrongheadedness that boggles the mind, and when the implications of their policies are realized, it terrorizes the heart.

But this juggernaut of pathological group-think did not spring up overnight, and did not come from nowhere. Someone, and their groups, had to have come up with the "scientific" and philosophical doctrines that dictated the "logic" and "reasoning" behind such transhumanist, socialist, authoritarian and eugenic policies and developments as we're seeing today. And who better to point out such information and make the connections than researcher and journalist Matthew Ehret (Canadian Patriot, Rising Tide Foundation). Join us this week on MindMatters as Matthew puts some giant historical figures in a whole new light, and shows how these famous personalities' thinking and huge influence have shaped an agenda for control that is as pervasive as it is monstrous.
