Why Imagination Is More Important Than You Think
By Dorraine Fisher

Albert Einstein said a curious thing. He said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge, for knowledge is limited, where imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”

And many inquiring minds have contemplated what he meant by this. And many have even disagreed. Certainly imagination plays a pivotal role in implementing new ideas. Nothing has ever been created or implemented without someone first imagining it. But isn’t that imagined image in the creator’s mind backed up by some kind of knowledge? Don’t they have to have a foundation of knowledge before they can imagine an idea into form? Well, not really, and the further your imagination can go in the absence of knowledge, the bigger and more amazing the creation can be.

Fear, The Law of Attraction, And Covid 19
Why Keeping Emphasis On Covid 19 Is A Bad Idea Even If It’s Still A Threat

By Dorraine Fisher

COVID 19 is a real virus and a real threat to society. The level of the threat seems to have gone down significantly, but many people are still at risk, such as smokers, the very elderly, and those with pre-existing health conditions such as lung diseases.

But the press keeps placing emphasis on the subject every day. Focusing on the number of new cases daily. My own hometown newspaper posts the number of new cases on its front page every single day. And to those who are at risk of catching it or have fear they might catch it and that it might kill them, this constant influx of negative information is actually keeping them from healing emotionally. It’s like people who already have a fear of catching the virus are being re-traumatized every day with statistics given by the news. And yes, the new sources do have a responsibility to report the dangers, but they are also giving more energy to a subject that is scaring some people. And I want to explain why this is a really bad thing for the media to do to this degree, even if the virus is the worst threat we’ve ever faced, which I don’t believe it is. But unless you’re triggered right now, stay with me.

A Must Watch!!! Before You Decide What’s Real, Understand This
The Objective Behind Plato’s Fable, The Allegory Of The Cave

By Dorraine Fisher

Things aren’t always what they seem. We all think we know this, but do we really understand?  Our idea that we have that what we see and hear is real in an illusion within itself. How can we understand what’s real if we only see it from one perspective?

Before we make decisions about reality, the supernatural, the metaphysical, the paranormal, and the spiritual, we have to first understand the nature of reality. What we see isn’t necessarily real. But it isn’t necessarily NOT real either. The lesson is that we have to learn to ALWAYS discern and scrutinize what we see and hear and believe is real.

Movie Review: Renegade: The Life Story of David Icke

By Dorraine Fisher

No one on the planet in our lifetime has been more controversial than David Icke. Less-than-affectionately known as a “renowned conspiracy theorist” and to others, a nutjob or hero, David Icke has pushed the proverbial buttons on our view of reality to the brink of total oblivion on numerous occasions and still manages to stay relevant after decades. Why? Because as crazy as some might think he is, people are beginning to see and experience the truth in what he’s been saying all along, as this new documentary about his life illustrates.

Reality 101: There Is No Reality

By Dorraine Fisher

Those who’ve had paranormal or cryptid encounters have the potential to be some of the most enlightened people on the planet. Why? Because they’ve had an experience that not everyone has had or will have. And through that experience, the universe is pushing them to make sense of it all. The universe is pushing them to think outside the box. The universe is giving them an opportunity to expand beyond boundaries of what’s considered acceptable or reasonable.  And they may see this experience as a curse, but it’s very significant and important to a bigger picture and I’ll tell you why.

How To Make The Paranormal Normal
What Scientists Were Trying To Tell Us Years Ago

By Dorraine Fisher

There is way more to the universe than any of us can imagine.  Our advancement and evolution as a species depends on our acceptance of this.  And it, much to the annoyance of many, includes the subjects of the paranormal. But once we better understand the true nature of reality, the paranormal suddenly becomes normal. And here’s how.

REAL Reality Doesn’t Exist
How We All Hallucinate Our Reality Into Form

By Dorraine Fisher

Conscious reality is not formed around or outside us. It’s formed within us. We create it ourselves by virtue of our perceptions or how we think about it. Yes, it’s true. So, the next time you’re complaining about how the world is screwing you over, remember that’s actually the reality you’re creating for yourself. You think it, therefore it happens.

And it’s interesting how people think that THEIR version of reality is the real one. And that other people are just not able to see it. And then, on the other hand, in the paranormal world, when people see things that aren’t supposed to exist, other people just tell them they’re hallucinating and what they saw wasn’t real. It can cause a lot of discourse between the groups who believe themselves to be the intelligent ones and the ones on the opposite that some try to say are the the less intelligent ones. They did, after all, see something that wasn’t real. Or did they? Given advances in neuroscience and physics, the lines between real and unreal are being seriously blurred.

Waking Up To The End Of The World?
The New Conspiracy Of Consciousness And What’s Ahead For Us

By Dorraine Fisher

Some people out there think the world is ending. But we are all just deeply entrenched in an enigmatic shift.

Have you been looking around you and wondering why everyone is so restless or angry or frustrated? Hell-bent on hurting each other; killing each other. People seem to be in an uproar about something in every part of the world. It’s like the whole world’s gone mad. So, have you wondered what’s really going on? Of course, a lot of people think they know what’s going on. But others think it might be too complicated, or they don’t want to think about it at all. After all, it’s not that comfortable to live on this planet right now. And there are days we’d all like to crawl under a rock and hide. But at some point, after we’ve been sitting here for a while and the world hasn’t yet come to an end, we’re bound to start asking questions.

Why DOES it appear that the world is going crazy?

A Paranormalist’s World Beyond The Five Senses
7 More Senses We Humans Have And Don't Realize

By Dorraine Fisher

We were always told in school that we have 5 senses. Hearing, seeing, smelling, taste, and touch. And we think that’s all we have and all we need, but it’s really not. And like everything else we’re learning in this new age, there’s a lot more to it than that. It seems that these days, there’s always more. So, let’s get out of our box once again and take a closer look.Science,

There is no set-in-concrete version of reality that everyone sees in the same way. Reality is different for each individual, and the nature and appearance of that reality is determined by each individual’s personal experiences and outlook on life. All shaped by our 5 senses...and a bunch of other ones too.

On August the 2nd A & E will debut a new reality TV show featuring Rob Lowe and his two sons.The series is titled "The Lowe Files" and is a nice play on the popular TV show "The X-files".
The upcoming series has set social media on fire thanks to Rob Lowe talking about his encounter with Bigfoot. Lowe claims he and others encountered bigfoot while filming in Ozark Mountains. Lowe stated he ended up on the ground and said he was "thinking I was going to be killed.”

The series is said to span a total of nine episodes for season one. The show follows Rob and his two sons, Matthew and John Owen, as they travel through the country to explore infamous unsolved mysteries, myths and legends.

The series sounds promising. A & E recently released the season trailer for the series,
Here it is

Can We Really Believe Our Eyes?
Why Perception Is Everything
By Dorraine Fisher

Seeing is believing, right?

How many times in the discussions about mysteries of the world have I heard someone say, “I'd have to see that for myself to believe it.”

Knowing what I know now, seeing something doesn't necessarily hold much water...at least not in the way we want it to.

Click on this link and look at our Facebook page cover photo, and tell me what you see.

I've asked a few people to do this and the answers are different. Some people see a pair of headlights shining in the dark. Others see a pair of female breasts.

So, now, while you're rolling on the floor laughing, it DOES actually bring up a very valid point that applies to the world of the paranormal and the unexplained. Not to mention everything around us. Our team artist, Greg Champy, was not intending for this kind of perception of these two beacons that were meant to be headlights. He was just trying to keep our Facebook page fresh. But different people see artwork in slightly different ways.

Now, check out the photo below that's been circulating for years

What do you see? Do you see a rabbit...or a duck. What you see at first depends on how your mind works. Psychiatrists have been using ink blot pictures in this way to interpret the patients' state of mind for years. It's a great way to spot a person's obsessions and perceptions. It tells immediately what their mind is focused on.

Because that thing we focus on is what we create. It becomes our reality. And that's how we'll actually see it.

And you may have noticed this in the past with a hundred other visuals and didn't give it much thought. But this is really a big deal. It impacts how we view reality, so it impacts everything.

Why? Because this means there cannot possibly be an absolute reality. There is only our personal perception of it. So everything we see is determined by our minds interpretation. And we all have a slightly different interpretation, because we've all lived a different life and experienced things differently. So, in the rabbit/duck picture, what are we really seeing? The answer it's a rabbit...and it's also a duck, basically depending on what you, from past experiences, EXPECT to see.

I.E. If your experience of seeing a dog for the first time is seeing it lunging toward you, growling and snapping, that has a certain impact on your brain. It records in your mind that dogs are evil, growling, biting monsters you should always avoid. And the next time you see a dog, you react with fear because of that early experience. But if you grew up in a house full of cuddly puppies, of course, you'll have a completely different view. And the kicker is, you'll have a really hard time understanding a person's fear of them. You won't have had that experience, so you're reality is different.

Our brain is wired to try to associate everything we see with something familiar. And what that vision or event will mean to us is based on experiences we've had of it before.. Whenever we see or experience something, our brain is recording it for future reference. If it's something new that we've never seen or experienced before, you can bet our brain is busy taking notes, trying to process it all and save it for future reference. But this is why we often become dumbfounded and time seems to move slower when we see something we can't process. Our brain actually has to slow it down in order to get a grasp on it.

The worlds of forensics and criminal justice have become increasingly more wary of eye witness accounts and will, in addition, search for other more tangible evidence to back them up. Why? Because we're learning that what we see is very much controlled by what we think and how we think about it. So eye witness testimony is becoming less and less reliable.

Now, I've brought this subject up before in paranormal circles, only to receive messages and emails from people asking me why I don't believe they saw what they saw. But it's not that I don't believe these stories. In fact, I believe beyond a shadow of a doubt (cautiously, of course) that these witnesses saw what they say they saw. But there's a lot more to “seeing” than just your eyes.

First of all, we don't really see things with our eyes. Our eyes are merely a lens, like a camera lens. We actually see with the part of our brain known as the visual cortex. And whenever we see anything, the visual cortex is making its interpretation based on past experiences. So nothing is quite as “real” as it may seem to us.

But this revelation about reality should have thrown the world on it's ear. Yet, it hasn't so far. Why not? Because we're not quite grasping the implications. It could go as far as to mean the line between what's real and what isn't, aren't as clearly defined. They're all open to the interpretation of the viewer. We've all been taught to think one person is right and one person is wrong. But if we're all seeing the “reality” based on our personal view, then what is REALLY real? Who's right and who's wrong?

Sure, you'll agree with the person who sees it the same way you do. But knowing all this, does that method of decision hold water?

How on earth do we decide what is real??!!

Now, I'll say again that this doesn't mean I don't believe in anything. Quite the contrary. But we have to be very aware of how our brains process information and we need to take that into account when we decide what we're seeing in front of us. How many different ways could this be interpreted? Think it through. Always strive to be logical.

So, in relating this to bigfoot research, I would say this. When we're doing research, or just trying to decide what's real. We need to be aware that we can't really rely on our eyes to tell us some absolute truth. But that being said, that doesn't mean our eyes are always lying either. It may just mean the world isn't as concrete and solid as we'd like to believe it is. There's a lot of mystery left there, and the more we know, the more mysterious it becomes.

My personal advice is this: If we're all creating reality by the way we perceive things, we have the power to make the choice to create it in a positive way and believe in possibilities rather than waste time focusing on the negatives. Just my two cents.

But you don't have to take my word for it. If you're curious to know more about perception and reality, watch parts 1 and 2 of Don't Believe Your Lying Eyes. Tell us what you think.

Here is a couple more popular images for you to study over.

Don't get excited ....it's just a lamp.
