I go through periods when I’m having experiences, and this is one of them. Last Tuesday night I was meditating and suddenly shot out of my body, up through the ceiling and into the sky. I was really racing, going higher and higher, and fast. It was wonderfully energetic, delicious and marvelous. I was literally racing out into the stars when a wise, gentle presence came close to me and told me to go home. I recognized this being immediately: it was my dad. The last time I made a clean break with my body like that was in late 1986, and at that time I tried to get back in but couldn’t–not until my dad came and helped me. Same deal this time. The difference? Last time I wanted to. This time, I could have just kept going.
Superconductors can be made to levitate in a magnetic field. They try to expel magnetic fields from within themselves, a very unique property. In space, it would be easy to keep material at temperatures close to absolute zero, meaning that a system using this could conceivably be propelled without any energy at all, at least in regions of space where there are magnetic fields.

Yesterday I bought a book at Book Soup in LA called the Demonologist by Andrew Pyper. I bought it because I’d read a good review of it in the New York Times Book Review last Sunday. To my confusion, the review was repeated today. They never run a review two weeks in a row, though, so I looked back to last week’s Book Review, and found that the review was not there.
I would never have bought a $25.00 book by an unknown writer without reading a strong review first. While I was reading the review today, I was also remembering it.
In some nearby universe, the Times must be a week ahead. Please, Lord, let me read the stock market columns and the sports scores!
Just 10 days before the Panstarrs comet is due, its perihelion date has been changed from April 17 to March 10. This means that in 8 months of tracking, astronomers were still off by a month. Panstarrs is a small comet and won’t be visible except just above the horizon around dawn in the northern hemisphere, but still, you’d think that it would have been as precisely tracked as other comets. Hopefully, there are no mistakes on Isod.
