Chatting with Kelly Howell about Intuition & the Future

image

I was recently interviewed by Kelly Howell on her brain-sync podcast. We chatted about integrated intelligence, futures studies and developing intuition. Here’s a brief extract from her page, and the link. Please enjoy,and feel free to like or share. 🙂 Marcus

Have you ever felt that you have a greater calling, but have never been able to put your finger on what it is? Listen to Kelly Howell’s conversation with author and post-conventional futurist Dr. Marcus T. Anthony discuss his work on Integrated Intelligence and the practice of accessing your built-in intuitive voice to draw upon an infinite source of knowledge and wisdom.

Futurists are scholars who study, analyze and deeply question the future. Dr. Anthony differs from most practicing futurists in that he focuses on spiritual realms and human consciousness rather than technology or economics.

The Biology of Story…

Rick Tarnas shared this site today called the Biology of Story, and it looks good. Some great sound bites, and neat, potted summaries of key ideas, which is very useful in the modern age. I found the videos wouldn’t load on the site itself on my iPad – I had to go through to YouTube to watch them. Some very informative short videos featuring people like Rupert Sheldrake and Fritfof Capra. To be honest, I don’t know some of the names listed there, but I will check some out in the coming days.

There is an interesting three-minute video where Capra outlines why new paradigms take time to take hold. He points to professional, institutional and cognitive resistance.

All the evidence for psi you’ll ever need!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wow! Dean Radin has very kindly put up a page with links to all the best evidence for psi-related human abilities – ESP, telepathy, clairvoyance, intention at a distance and so on. If you have ever wanted to discover more about the evidence, or point a skeptic in the direction of the evidence, you need look no further!

I have cut and pasted all the links here, but do go to Dean Radin’s great blog and web site – and to YouTube for very informative videos like his talk at the Electric Universe conference in 2013– if you want to find out first hand about all this kind of research.
