We are pleased to announce that Jeffrey Mishlove Ph.D will be our guest for next weeks show. Mishlove is the author of many books and is considered one of the world's leading experts on the subject of human consciousness. Best known for his encyclopedic volume titled: The Roots of Consciousness, this classic, written in 1975, is in my opinion one the best, if not the best, book ever written on the subject of human consciousness and is one of my favorite books in my library. We are extremely fortunate to have landed him as a guest as he rarely does radio interviews.

Mishlove is currently director of the Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to helping create a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate their inner, intuitive resources. He also serves as program dean of the University of Philosophical Research.

Jeffrey was host of the television interview series Thinking Allowed and in this capacity, he has interviewed hundreds of leading thinkers in the areas of philosophy, psychology, health, science and spirituality. He holds the only doctoral diploma in "Parapsychology" to be awarded by an accredited American University (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). A revision of his doctoral dissertation, Psi Development Systems, was released in 1988 as a Ballantine paperback. This book evaluates methods utilized to train people on how to maximize their psychic abilities. His most recent book, The PK Man, presents an amazing case study of unusual psychokinetic abilities.

A man of many interests, in 2010, he was part of a team that discovered the first dinosaur tracks ever found in the State of Nevada.

We will be taping the program on Thursday, October 6. 2016 at 11 AM PT so please post YOUR QUESTIONS here.

Could you Dr. Mishlove describe current developments regarding the "hard problem" of consciousness? How do you personally interpret the evidence?

Do you think consciousness is a fundamental aspect of reality, or is it an emergent effect of reality? Could you explain why you think the evidence leads to the view you hold?

Do you think there are discarnate intelligent entities? Is there in your opinion clear evidence one way or the other?

Best wishes

Question: In your opinion can consciousness be both fundamental and emergent? Why or why not?
Question: In your opinion is consciousness a prerequisite for a worldview ( For example could an AI without consciousness have one )? Why or why not?
