#195 – Grimerica Talks Float Tanks and Meditative Lights With Isaac & Dustin From Float Life

interview starts 46:05

Isaac and Dustin – the owners of Float Life in Calgary join us for a chat about their business, floating, other meditative techniques, and psychedelics among many other topics. So common among our guest, Isaac talks about the synchronicity that lead them to their new business in Calgary. We also chat about cold and warm baths – thermal cycle and cold thermogenesis, lucid dreaming and why we should be floating and all the benefits of it.
Before the show we try meditating under the Pandora Star – deep trance meditative light device. It’s very interesting and it’s supposed to entrain brain waves to multiple states and it creates psychedelic, colorful, geometric imagery.
“Floating” is lying in a fully dark, quiet tank full of warm salt water. It’s so relaxing that you can let go of your body and most physical feeling. This brings your thoughts to the forefront and there are many ways to mindfully meditate or play in the tank.
In the intro we chat about Darren’s halloween with the kids and Graham’s relaxing experience at Thermea Spa in Winnipeg. Graham shares some listener feedback, some trip reports and synchronicities. Wikileaks is still fulfilling the UFO quote of the week.

#189 – Grimerica Talks Digital Philosophy, Simulation Theory, and Alternate Realities with Jim Elvidge

interview starts 31:15

Jim Elvidge makes his way back to Grimerica. Jim has been researching and writing about digital philosophy, simulation theory and alternate realities. He is working on another book coming out later this year. We chat about how much things have changed since he was last on the show and his book “The Universe Solved” came out. Many mainstream scientists are talking about a simulated or digital reality.
We chat about the evolution of different theories, i.e.. string and quark, and entanglement and the observer affect. Jim takes us through the Mandela Affect, quantum computing and how trauma can be passed down through generations.
Jim’s old book lays out the four main categories of evidence; consciousness is fundamental and primary, all matter is digital/data, all matter is data, everything is illusion and the system/thing is digital. His new book will have many more categories and will make these theories more scientific.
We also chat about virtual reality and other theories like the Big TOE, Biocentrism, many worlds and holographic universe?.
In the intro Darren and Graham chat about the past life reading they just had! Crazy stuff, and a big thanks to some amazing art and letters received at the IGLOO. Thanks for your stories, synchronicities, and feedback.

#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
