#121 – Grimerica Talks Psychedelics, Spiritual Awakenings, and More with Niles Heckman

Niles Heckman

is a independent researcher and multidisciplinary artist & filmmaker with a background in the Hollywood visual effects industry. Niles has an interesting take on the connections between psychedelic art, computer graphics. virtual reality, consciousness and “spiritual awakenings”. Be sure to be inspired by his articulate philosophy.
After years of working on large professional teams in Hollywood as an artist and supervisor he started focusing on putting his skill set towards more of his own original content, most of which has philosophical themes. In 2010 he started directing & producing projects through his production company AURORA-LAB; The goal of which is to generate conscious and creative original content.
We chat about the false version of reality we live in and how you don’t have to look very far to learn this is truly the case. We chat about the middle path of the natural and divine. Also touched on things like the entertainment industry, hollywood, Live action role playing, and the depolarizing church of personal experience! ie. The passive path of direct experience.
In the intro Red Pill Junkie joins us and we finally reveal the remote viewing exercise from a few episodes ago. We chat about the multimillion dollar faraday style condo’s for sale in San Fran. Who are the men who never dream and never have nightmares and does reality even really exist until we see it?!?!

#116 – Grimerican Roundtables Take 4 – Alex Tsakiris, Conner Habib, & Red Pill Junkie

#116 Roundtable with Alex Tsakiris, Conner Habib and Red Pill Junkie. What an intriguing and thought provoking conversation with three of our most open minded, well spoken and articulate guests. We talk about a lot of cultural phobia’s like being afraid to be honest and our fear of admitting that we want to believe in something. What is really driving science? And we express our opinions about man made climate change as well as the ridicule factor from our mainstream culture. Icons like Terrance Mckenna, Graham Hancock, Alan Watts, Ram Das, John Keel and Sigmund Frued are discussed. And others like Mira Bartaulk, Grant Cameron, Thomas Campbell, Luke Ritkowski, Rudolf Steiner, and Whitley Strieber.

 

Red Pill Junkie talks about his attendance at the Roswell Slide “Reveal”, Conner talks about his recent scandal at the PEN Gala, and Alex talks about his plastic bag revelation. We also chat about LOVE in the big picture related to enlightenment, personal transformation, experience led belief systems and the polarization of our culture.

 

Links and short bio from guests on this roundtable:

 

Conner Habib – as his twitter says… author. pornographic person. sex expert. VP of @apacsocial. magician with a k. Conner is very articulate, open minded and quite the intellectual thinker. Check out his blog about NDE’s…. a topic which we have long desired to chat about in Grimerica. Conner studied evolutionary biology, he’s an essayist and also stars in the adult film industry.

Alex Tsakiris – Host of the long running Skeptiko podcast and author of the new book “Why Science is Wrong….. About Almost Everything”Alex is truly on the front lines in this long fought War on Consciousness. He has been challenging the gatekeepers of this dogmatic materialism paradigm, while giving a voice to alternate views and just following the data to where it leads. You can tell by the title of his book…. As to where this is heading.

Record number of quotes made in this episode!! :

 

“If there is nothing outside nature, it becomes nonsensical to talk of nature, and especially human nature, as being divided against itself. Nature is, as it were, always on its own side. So when people are destructive, or self-destructive, they are not acting against their own nature, they are just being natural in ways we don’t like. Instead of talking about the natural and the unnatural — or even nature and culture — we can talk about the parts of nature we prefer and why we prefer them.”

                                        Adam Phillips

 

“Don’t be a dick.” 

                                        Phil Plait

 

“Learn to live with a high level of unceertainty”

                                        Whitley Streiber

 

“I guess I should say a little bit about my method – I really am a fence sitter. I *loathe* Science and am always keen to attack it in most situations, though not here, because I love Reason and I’m perfectly aware of the difference. I also know what a concept means like Rules of Evidence. I’m not sure that’s a concept as widely circulated in these circles as it needs to be – in other words, how *do* you tell shit from shinola? That’s very critical. I think reason can only take us a certain distance, and           then we have to go with the divine imagination, but with all safety systems fully in operation, or the divine imagination will lead us into complete paranoia.”

                                        Terramce McKenna

 

“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.”

                                        Philip K Dick

 

“Wisdom without love is not wisdom”

                                        Thomas Cochmann

 

“Belief is the enemy”

                                        John Keel

 

“What ?!?! You need to think before you feel?”

                                        Alex’s wife

 

Man is often too proud to examine the self-evident things which are closest to him. Zen found the followers of the Mahayana looking for truth to scriptures, to holy men and Buddhas, believing that they would reveal it to them if they lived the good life. For man’s apparent humility in thinking that wisdom is something too sublime to reveal itself in the ordinary affairs of his life is a subtle form of pride. Inwardly he feels that he must be so great as to be removed from the things of the world before he can receive truth, and such is his pride that he will only deign to receive it from the lips of sages and from the pages of sacred scriptures. He does not see it in human beings or in the incidents of everyday life; he does not see it in himself, for again he is too proud to see himself as he is. So far from seeking for truth he hides his imperfections under his ‘meritorious deeds’ and approaches the Buddhas from behind their mask.

                                         Alan Watts

Grimerica Talks to CJ Werleman

 

CJ Werleman, one of today’s new atheists and author of ‘God Hates You. Hate him Back’, and newly released ‘Crucifying America’ (The Unholy Alliance Between the Christian Right and Wall Street) Is in Grimerica. CJ brings many statistics to light that you just don’t hear in the everyday mainstream. The guys chat about society today and how America’s economy was about making stuff and now it’s just about making stuff up. Evidence based politics, religion and money in politics…. the Gods, Guns and Gays of today’s mainstream distraction. Hey, look over here!! Does social mobility and meeting basic needs make a happy society / nation?

Grimerica Talks to Philip Comella – The Collapse of Materialism – Visions of Science, Dreams of God

 

Philip Comella, author of “The Collapse of Materialism – Visions of Science, Dreams of God” joins Darren and Graham tonight in Grimerica. In this book Philip demonstrates how the paranormal, philosophy, science and religion are all pointing us to a raising of consciousness and growing awareness that we are more than just meat and potatoes. Together, we dream the world and the stars!  Philip is a lawyer and visionary futurist and the fellas chat about the changing paradigm, the explosion of new books, the Tao and trouble with physics, dreamtime, and the logical path to spirituality.
