RIP – Dr Terence Palmer – Update

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I am sorry to share with you the very sad news that Dr Terence Palmer has died.

He spent the last couple of weeks in hospital with Covid but after a strong fight for survival, he passed to spirit on New Years Eve 2021.

Many of us have worked with DR Palmer for many years, in my case for the past 10 years. He will be sadly missed, however, I’m sure he will find a way to continue and finish his invaluable SRT work from the other side.

Terry was a passionate and forthright leader in the field of Spirit Release and his legacy will live on.

Goodbye, for now, Terry, regards Andy Porter

Cancel the Apocalypse: Here Are 30 Documentaries to Help Unlock the Good Ending

Our present moment is saturated in dystopian, apocalyptic fantasies of the future.

As the late Mark Fisher said, “It’s easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism.” We can envision a thousand ways that humanity might destroy itself and the rest of the world, but positive visions of the future remain severely lacking in comparison. Why is that?

The Dark Ages led to the Renaissance. Feudalism led to capitalism. No era remains stagnant forever. But there’s an invisible meme in our culture today that says capitalism is the greatest economic idea humanity has ever invented and it will never be surpassed. That’s why a thousand dystopian visions of the future all imagined that capitalism stayed the same, our economic paradigm never evolved… and then the world was eventually destroyed. Could the two be connected? Is our failure to imagine something better than capitalism going to be what actually leads to “the bad ending” for humanity?

What this points to, in our view, is a crisis of imagination.

Humans at heart are storytellers, and we enact the stories we tell ourselves. As we’ve written before, our culture is enacting a story that’s destroying the world. If humanity is going to unlock “the good ending,” we’ve got to imagine it first. We’ve got to imagine ten thousand localized versions of it. That’s how things change.

Fortunately, visions of a more beautiful, compassionate, regenerative future already exist. But since they’re not being broadcast daily on the evening news, we’ve got to dedicate a little more energy towards broadcasting them ourselves. This is what this list of films is for. These films decided that the apocalypse is canceled. Climate change is canceled. Biodiversity loss is canceled. A comeback of this scale has never been attempted before, but that’s why it’s going to work. Ya dig? The people in these films aren’t listening to the folks that say it’s too late. They’re imagining the future they want, not the future they’re afraid of, and they’re bringing that future into being.

Whether we’re ultimately successful is not the point, and beyond anyone’s ability to truly know. The point is that our true nature calls us to choose determination over defeat, and resilience over despair.

We hope these films inspire the former – that place in your heart that knows a better world *is* possible, and is ready to make it happen.

Children face ‘agonising’ waits for mental health care

A BBC news report on UK TV today.

Children struggling with mental health problems during the pandemic are facing “agonisingly” long waits for treatment, a BBC investigation has found.

Data from half of England’s services found one in five seen in the past year waited over 12 weeks for care.

The situation has got so bad that parents and head teachers told the BBC they had lost faith in the system.

And doctors reported distressed children were ending up at A&E as they had no where else to go.

Prof Gary Schwartz to Speak at the SPR

6th September 2021 – Gary Schwartz – Zoom Web Event – Extraordinary Claims Require Extraordinary Evidence: The Randomized Control Trial SoulPhone Experiments

The gold standard in biomedical research is the multi-center, multi-blinded, randomized control trial (RCT). In pharmacological research the RCT is termed a Phase III clinical trial. Dr. Gary Schwartz has adapted these core goals and RCT methods for documenting computer automated spirit presence and communication effects. As outlined in an article in EXPLORE: The Journal of Science and Healing to be published in the fall of 2021, the goals are: (1) to use currently available, reliable, and affordable technology (total hardware cost per system less than $4,000; these systems will be available for use by collaborating laboratories), (2) to automate data collection and real-time analyses employing specially designed software, (3) to only require a quiet space (used at night) in collaborating laboratories, (4) to not necessitate human subjects committee approvals at collaborating institutions (because the participants are hypothesized spirit participants), and (5) to enable international collaboration regardless of the investigator’s personal beliefs about the hypothesis. The research design and methods meet a phrase popularized by Carl Sagan: “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” The design minimizes false positives and false negatives. Dr. Schwartz will present some of the latest validation findings that he believes makes the case for the survival of consciousness beyond a reasonable doubt.
