WebsiteiTunesDirect Download RSS

In the latest episode of The Infinite and the Beyond, we learn about the legendary 14th century French alchemist Nicolas Flamel in “A Corner in the Occult.”

Rumors say that Nicholas and his wife were able to turn mercury into gold and as a result of their experiments possibly even created the mystical Elixir of Life providing them both with immortality.

We talk with author and parapsychologist Dr. Dean Radin, senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences and author of Entangled Minds, Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality.

During the course of the interview we talk about the Global Consciousness Project and touch upon what this could mean for the world. We also discuss his experiences as a research scientist and finally how his findings and current understandings relate to the art and practice of magick.

I also read some of the listener messages that I received since the last episode via the show website, podcast alley, and the show network. I even announced a new show contest where one lucky listener will win a copy of Dr. Radin’s most recent book Entangled Minds.

The drawing for this contest will occur in the next episode and if you are interested in participating be sure to enter by going here. All this and more in this great episode, blessed be and 93! Check the show notes for all links mentioned.

Hitler Was ‘Obsessed’ With Stealing The Turin Shroud

shroudWould WWII have turned out differently if Adolph Hitler had gotten his hands on the Turin Shroud? He may have believed it would bestow him with Jesus powers. From the Telegraph:

Both the Vatican and the Italian royal family, the Savoys, who were the guardians and owners of the shroud, feared that the German leader, who had an interest in the esoteric, might try to steal the linen cloth.

Officially this was to protect it from possible bombing (in Turin). In reality, it was moved to hide it from Hitler who was apparently obsessed by it. When he visited Italy in 1938, top-ranking Nazi aides asked unusual and insistent questions about the Shroud.

The shroud, which is supposed to have wrapped Christ’s body after he was crucified, was returned to Turin in 1946 on the orders of Italy’s last king, Umberto II. While millions of people believe the shroud to be authentic, sceptics believe it is a medieval fake.

Watkins Books Lives

As a quick and happy update to my recent post about London’s legendary esoteric book shop, Watkins, closing, Publishers Weekly now reports that a buyer has been found:

Just two weeks before it was to be liquidated American entrepreneur Etan Ilfeld stepped forward and purchased the 113-year old institution, which stocks crystals, jewelry, and statues as well as books.

Ilfeld, who owns a nearby art gallery, Tenderpixel, plans to maintain Watkins’s identity as an independent esoteric bookstore. “It’s not everyday that you have the opportunity to save a century-old business,” said Ilfeld. “I don’t believe that spirituality in London is dead and will do my best to ensure that Watkins Books will be sustainable and survive the 21st century.”

Save Watkins Books!

Watkins bookshopFor anyone interested in esoteric and occult books, one of the very finest shops in the world is London’s Watkins Books. For those of you with deep pockets, please dig deep and buy the business out of bankruptcy/administration. From The Bookseller:

London’s oldest esoteric bookshop and Cecil Court ‘institution’ Watkins Books has gone into administration with 11 members of staff losing their jobs.

The bookshop, which was founded in 1897 and moved to Cecil Court in 1901, closed down yesterday (23rd February), following the appointment of administrator Harris Lipman. A sign displayed on the shop’s window read: “Shop Closed Today”.

Tim Bryars, secretary of the Cecil Court Association, told The Bookseller that it had “taken everybody by surprise”. It is understood that trading had been slower than usual, for a number of reasons including increased online competition and the bad weather. The company was hit by a Capital Gains Tax bill of £500,000, which it had been appealing against.
