Michael Griesbach, author of “Indefensible: The Missing Truth about Steven Avery, Teresa Halbach and ‘Making a Murderer,’” told TheWrap that the Netflix docuseries makes for compelling television, but is wittingly misleading. “I do have a lot of respect for the scale and hard work — it’s an engrossing show or series and it’s very well done,” Griesbach said. “I know they are well intentioned, but what I don’t have respect for is presenting something as objective and claiming its objectivity while clearly knowing it isn’t.” Source: http://www.thewrap.com/making-a-murde…

04-03-2017 Leslie Kean, Surviving Death: A Journalist Investigates Evidence for an Afterlife

Monday, April 3rd at 8:00PM EST, Video YouTube Live Stream

Leslie Kean discusses her new book, “Surviving Death” and her deep research into whether we survive or not in consciousness after death.  “While exploring the evidence for an afterlife, I witnessed some unbelievable things that are not supposed to be possible in our material world. Yet they were unavoidably and undeniably real. Despite my initial doubt, I came to realize that there are still aspects of Nature which are neither understood or accepted, even though their reality has profound implications for understanding the true breadth of the human psyche and its possible continuity after death.” So begins Leslie Kean’s impeccably researched, page-turning investigation, revealing stunning and wide-ranging evidence suggesting that consciousness survives death. In her groundbreaking second book, she continues her examination of unexplained phenomena that began with her provocative New York Times bestseller UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record. Kean explores the most compelling case studies of young children reporting verifiable details from past lives, contemporary mediums who seem to defy the boundaries of the brain and of the physical world, apparitions providing information about their lives on earth, and people who die and then come back to report journeys into another dimension. Based on facts and scientific studies, Surviving Death includes fascinating chapters by medical doctors, psychiatrists, and PhDs from four coun- tries. As a seasoned journalist whose work transcends belief systems and ideology, Kean enriches the narrative by including her own unexpected, confounding experiences encountered while she probed the question concerning all of us: Do we survive death?

03-27-17 Dr. Doron Friedman, Computer Solves Time Travel Grandfather Paradox

Monday March 27th, 1:00PM EST, Video Google Hangouts on Air

Dr. Doron Friedman, a computer scientist at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, has employed automated reasoning to tackle the problem, with his work published on the arXiv (meaning it is yet to go under peer-review).

Time travel plotlines can be brain-meltingly difficult to follow. But Friedman designed a program that can readily track the back and forth chain of events – and their logical consistency (or lack thereof).

He used a simplified version of the paradox, in which the protagonist goes back in time and kills his own father.
When Friedman ran this plotline through his program, it noticed the paradox by reporting a contradiction – namely that if the son travels back in time and kills his father, then how could the son have been conceived?
