Suborbital spaceflight for everyone?

CANvenusI have always thought that I’d have to live again in order to have the slightest chance of traveling in space. And I am probably right. But the good news is the technology for space travel could vastly improve travel times around planet Earth. (Hey, it’s worth the ticket price just to get those few seconds of micro gravity!)

Commercial Spaceships May Speed up Consumer Air Travel
Want to fly anywhere on Earth in less than two hours?

By Irene Klotz

…Virgin Galactic is scheduled to unveil SpaceShipTwo in California’s Mojave Desert, the first spacecraft for private passenger travel.

With several firms working on commercial suborbital spaceships, a two-hour flight to anywhere on Earth may soon be possible, says an advocacy group laying the groundwork for global high-speed air and space travel…

Biocentrism Says There is No Death, a Past Life Theory Explored In New Crime Drama and Fictional Thriller

Biocentrism is is one of the most compelling new philosophies of existence that I’ve encountered and I’ve spent a lot of time imagining how it could work and what it all must mean.

A recent article in the Huffington Post gives a great explanation of the biocentric theory that death does not exist…

Many of us fear death. We believe in death because we have been told we will die. We associate with the body, and we know that bodies die. But a new scientific theory suggests death is not the end.

One well-known aspect of quantum physics is that certain observations cannot be predicted absolutely. Instead, there is a range of possible observations each with a different probability. One mainstream explanation, the “many-worlds” interpretation, states that each of these possible observations corresponds to a different universe (the ‘multiverse’). A new scientific theory – called biocentrism – refines these ideas. There are an infinite number of universes, and everything that could possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death does not exist in any real sense in these scenarios…

Photojournalist, Josh Ryder is someone who understands biocentrism in a very real way because it isn’t a metaphysical theory for him, but rather, it’s his conscious reality. Ryder doesn’t just remember his past life in ancient Rome, he experiences the sights and sounds and feelings of that previous life in real-time as he moves through his 21st century existence. Living simultaneously in two worlds, Ryder has the metaphysically unique perspective that allows him to connect the dots that are separated by sixteen centuries of time in order to solve a present-day crime with past-life clues and evidence.

Read an excerpt of “The Reincarnationist”

But Josh Ryder isn’t someone we can talk to about it. He’s the biocentric lead character in “The Reincarnationist,” the first in my series of fictional thrillers centered around the theme of reincarnation. (“The Reincarnationist” is also the inspiration behind the new Fox crime drama, “Past Life,” which is also centered around reincarnation.)

I think if you read the book you’ll see how Ryder’s “many worlds” experiences bring the theory of biocentrism to life.

Then have some fun experiencing biocentrism for yourself.

One Million Years of Isolation

There is one thing I know of that really does not seem like it wants to reincarnate: Nuclear waste. How on earth do we quarantine a hazardous material for more than one million years? The “solution” is nothing less than otherworldly – except that it IS on our world, and that is a bit disconcerting.

If you haven’t heard of it, you’ll be amazed when you learn about the nuclear waste-entombment site proposed for Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

One Million Years of Isolation: An Interview with Abraham Van Luik

Abraham Van Luik is a geoscientist with the U.S. Department of Energy; he is currently based at the nuclear waste-entombment site proposed for Yucca Mountain, Nevada. Yucca Mountain, a massive landform created by an extinct supervolcano inside what is now Nellis Air Force Base’s Nevada Test and Training Range, 90 miles northwest of Las Vegas, is the controversial site chosen by Congress for the storage of nuclear waste. Its political fate remains uncertain. Although the Obama Administration has stated that Yucca Mountain is “no longer… an option for storing nuclear waste,” Congress has since voted to continue funding the project—albeit only with enough funds to allow the licensing process to continue…
