Micah is the author of MAGIC, MYSTICISM & the MOLECULE.

This book explores many of the mysteries of human consciousness that have alluded mystics and scholars for centuries. It is an in depth investigation and analyses of the convergence of psychology, the paranormal, and historical mystical practices dating back to the dawn of humanity.

Micah also keeps a blog titled THE GRAILIEN REPORT. A repository of his thoughts and on-going investigations.

...28???!!!!! @_@

PS: Ever since Micah started talking about his book and mentioned the psychomanteum, I had been wanting to see one of those contraptions. Interestingly enough, one of them is briefly portrayed in the movie Hereafter.

I came across the term psychomanteum years ago,while reading Raymond Moody's book "Reunions - Visionary Encounters with Departed Loved Ones".
There is even a chapter called "Creating Your Own Psychomanteum"
And thanks for reminding me about it RPJ.It's been years since I've read it,and I think it's time to dust it off,and give it another read.

Cheers / Daz

I left a comment a few days ago,but I think when Blogger went down,it must have gotten lost into cyber-space.
Just wanted to say great pod-cast again,Mike.
