Perfect pitch, driverless cars and a cure for Parkinsons

Was listening to Harry Shearer's Sunday show this morning interviewing Gary Marcus.  ("Interview with NYU Professor of Psychology and Neural Science, Gary Marcus on artificial intelligence." March 4th, 2018)
From Richard Davidson's work on Meditation
how it can "cure or alleviate depression."
Harry was talking to NYU professor Gary Marcus about brain functions, about "preprogrammed" information that occurs in certain animals (the author used the octopus as an example of a creature that is born with a vast amount of apriori knowledge) and how artificial intelligence advocates and creators debate whether or not artificial intelligence machines (driverless cars) should be built with a certain amount of "baggage" or prior knowledge, and if they should be a clean slate to learn "new information."  He referred to his article in the New Yorker "Moral Machines."

He spoke of how the simple worm was dissected decades ago, and yet science has not been able to duplicate its functions in a machine. (Gary's article on "Deep Learning" is here)

Further, there was an article in about how light waves (and sound waves) may be a cure for a variety of brain disorders, including Alzheimer's and Parkinsons. A recent study showed promising long term benefits for people who spent an hour a day looking at pulsating lights or listening to sounds.

But let's start with perfect pitch, shall we?

Gary Marcus Ph.D said "There are more cases of perfect pitch in China which may be a genetic or a cultural phenomenon."  Harry pointed out that he was "born with perfect pitch" and it wasn't a skill he acquired.  They discussed where "talent comes from" - and the author pointed out that some bands can play for "a thousand hours" and never attain the musical abilities of the Beatles for example. But Harry wanted to know "How is it that I was born with perfect pitch?"

(I've met Harry a couple of times over the years. We did a Laverne and Shirley with Harry Dean Stanton (! I was the pizza delivery guy) and we met in New Orleans during the Jazz fest, and I reviewed his wife's music when I wrote for Variety)

I can tell you Harry.

But you have to get a cup of coffee, sit back in your chair, and go down this rabbit hole with me.  I can show you how to cure Parkinsons, help people with Alzheimers, define where perfect pitch comes from, and explain how driverless cars will never become morality machines.  I can explain all of that to you, but first you have to set something aside.

Ego. Vanity.  (Not yours, just the concepts.) They are two words that come to mind when we judge what we are about to hear or contemplate.  "Consider the source."  If one was to look at my background, look for my Ph.D for example, or check where my sources are, there going to resist coming into the hole with me. 
A life well lived! Or remembered well.
or well... remembered.

For the past ten years I have been filming people under deep hypnosis talking about the afterlife.  If there was a Ph.D in "Filming what people say about the afterlife while under deep hypnosis" I'd have that moniker.  I did graduate magna cum laude, I have written or directed 8 theatrical feature films, and written four best selling tomes on the topic (kindle best sellers) but none of that really matters.

Some scientists will (and have) argued that "hypnosis is not a valid tool of science" but they're wrong. Inaccurate. Mistaken. 

If we look at medical cases, for example, drugs are given in a test environment, and then answers are asked and those results become data.  The results must be consistent and reproducible.  That's a hallmark of science.  
Hallmark.  My grandfather Edward A Hayes French Legion of Honor
medal.  It exists somewhere, as it was stolen from my folks home.
But it's still a hallmark.

So what I'm about to tell you is both consistent and reproducible.  It doesn't matter who is telling this information to you, it matters what these people consistently say.  If they say the same things consistently, then one has to rule out how that could possibly be.  If they say the same things no matter who is asking the questions, or who is offering the answers; again, we'd have to rule out how that could possibly be. 

How could thousands of humans say the same things under hypnosis no matter who asks the questions or what the protocol is?

With medium Jennifer Shaffer and Newton trained
hypnotherapist Scott de Tamble (
I've examined the thousands of cases of Dr. Helen Wambach (Life Before Lives) and Michael Newton (Journey of Souls.)  I've filmed 45 people that I chose for their skepticism to do a "between life session" which lasts up to 6 hours.  I've done five of them myself. And the results are the essentially the same.  I expanded this research into near death experiencers.  I have transcribed sessions of people who've had a near death event and then used hypnosis to reaccess that information.  Further, I've interviewed these people while fully conscious and had them revisit the same information and gotten the same results as people who've never heard of "hypnotherapy."

How could that be?

It's because consciousness is both a medium and a mechanism.  Like light is both particle and wave, consciousness functions in the same manner.  It doesn't "spontaneously generate" the way that people used to think "water in the desert created fish."  Consciousness functions the same way that water does - in the sense that one can't kill a drop of water - they can change it, it can travel somewhere else, but every single drop of water that has ever been on the planet is still here. No drop of water has ever been destroyed, killed, or even harmed. It functions, is changed, then travels back "home" and then "reincarnates" again in our coffee.

Just like humans.

What the research shows is this: we come to the planet with about a third of our "conscious energy" (soul for lack of a better term) and two thirds of that energy is always "back home" where we "came from." (I use quotes because that's what people consistently say.  When asked "where do you want to go?" after remembering a previous lifetime, they inevitably say "home."  Not heaven, or hell, or planet Xenu, or Kolab or any of the other "places" that we associate with some "other place." They use the same word CONSISTENTLY.  We can argue what home is -no two people have the same idea of home - but the words they associate with home are consistent; "A place of non judgment" a "place of unconditional love" a place of "safety" "comfort" or "where our loved ones are."

Whom I interviewed on the Flipside in
a previous post here.

Say hello to my little friends.

Unconditional love is the key.  They use that term consistently - but it's not a term we use on the planet consistently. It's not in beer ads, in literature, in entertainment, in stories... but we instantly know what it means.  It's a love that is not conditional.  We live in state of "conditional love" while we are here on the planet (for the most part) and only experience is between parents and children (sometimes) or between humans and animals (sometimes.)  But it's an experience we all know - and yet, everyone claims that's what we return to "after our life" or "before our life."

Further, when we talk about a third of our consciousness being here, that works out to two thirds of our consciousness being "back home" all the time.

What has this to do with perfect pitch?

If you've have a lot of lifetimes that are related to music, if your sense of frequency translation is honed over many lifetimes, or if you're consciousness just has an easier time of understanding frequency,  you're going to have "perfect pitch" (or be able to see, sense or hear other frequencies.  Perfect pitch can relate to a medium seeing or hearing things that aren't here, the same way a bee can see the ultraviolet light we can't see.  They have different frequency tuning built in.)

So Harry's brain has the ability to "hear" the frequency from notes (sound waves) that when they reach his ear and are translated into information in his brain, he knows what note is being played.  Not something he learned, but something he was "born with."

What Harry doesn't know is that he chose this lifetime.  Prior to even "coming to the planet" or incarnating, Harry got together with his pals (likely member of Spinal Tap) and discussed what kind of a lifetime he wanted to experience.  I've filmed a number of these "life planning sessions" (including my own) and reported them in "Flipside" "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" and "Hacking the Afterlife.")

His ability to understand frequency without having to learn it is related to his consciousness.  He chose a body and brain that could work with frequencies on a different level than other folks.

A musician or scientist?  Both it appears.

Now, what about artificial intelligence?  

It's not enough for me to say "there will never be a sentient machine until someone on the flipside decides that they want to have an existence on the planet as a sentient machine."  In other words, someone would have to "choose" a lifetime as a machine, and would be stuck doing all the boring things that machines do.  Since there's a myriad of experience we have here as humans, I can't imagine why anyone would ever want to do that.

But that's not to say that artificial intelligence is amoral - it's just to say that the "race to sentience" is a waste of time.  Can't exist. Sorry.  But again, it's not enough to say it - what people are looking for is how to make machines, or AI more "moral" - meaning being able to make the choice of "running into a tree" or "running into a bus full of children."  Humans make that choice - but what is it based on?  Is that choice based on the amount of engrams in a brain? Or social engineering?  Neither. (Again, sorry, it's just not in the data.)

What is in the data (and again, eyewitness reports that are consistent and reproducible are data) is that we choose to incarnate as animals that are called human.  That the human animal itself has a limited capacity for higher thinking, and its a tacit agreement between ourselves a conscious entities and the human animal.  We don't incarnate as other animals, because they have their own forms of the process - they too have realms and levels with regard to their incarnations, whether its as a flying animal, swimming animal, or one walking the earth.  It's technically possible for us to incarnate in such a manner - it's just relatively really really rare for us to do so, and we would have a compelling reason to do so that all our loved ones and guides would have to agree to.

I'm not arguing this point here; I'm reporting it.  This is not my theory, belief or philosophy - I'm just reporting what people consistently say about the process either while under deep hypnosis, or consciously about these events.

So how to make artificial intelligence more human?  Ask someone who is no longer on the planet for how to do that.  (It's what I've been doing the past two years, interviewing people (different people, different mediums) and comparing the answers to complex questions about the nature of reality. Sounds odd, and it is, but it's what I've focusing on.  Ask people no longer on the planet about how to make your machine function better.  I'm not kidding.  I can help you do that.

Finally; what's the cure for Parkinsons and Alzheimers?  Well, it's in this research as well. In Nature magazine they have an article showing how pulsing light (or sound) allows brain waves to function better, helps focus and memory, and in some cases, stops the shaking of Parkinsons.  

I've shown the same results in "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" where a person with severe Parkinsons did a between life hypnosis session and stopped shaking for the entire six hour session. (And I filmed it.  She's a private person, so she doesn't want the footage out there, but the transcription of the session, anonymous, is in the book).

Why did her Parkinsons stop during the session?  Because deep hypnosis (not the surface kind, or the quack like a duck kind) works with Theta waves.  It's the same waves that are being affected by the light or the low sounds used in this study.

"Nevertheless, there is clearly a growing excitement around treating neurological diseases using neuromodulation, rather than pharma-ceuticals. “There’s pretty good evidence that by changing neural-circuit activity we can get improvements in Parkinson’s, chronic pain, obsessive–compulsive disorder and depression,” says Insel. This is important, he says, because so far, pharmaceutical treatments for neurological disease have suffered from a lack of specificity. Koroshetz adds that funding institutes are eager for treatments that are innovative, non-invasive and quickly translatable to people.

Since publishing their mouse paper, Boyden says, he has had a deluge of requests from researchers wanting to use the same technique to treat other conditions. But there are a lot of details to work out. “We need to figure out what is the most effective, non-invasive way of manipulating oscillations in different parts of the brain,” he says. “Perhaps it is using light, but maybe it’s a smart pillow or a headband that could target these oscillations using electricity or sound.” One of the simplest methods that scientists have found is neurofeedback, which has shown some success in treating a range of conditions, including anxiety, depression and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. People who use this technique are taught to control their brainwaves by measuring them with an EEG and getting feedback in the form of visual or audio cues."

Did you get that?

Non pharma therapy for Alzheimers and Parkinsons.  Using lights and sounds to help the brain to focus better, to get rid of plaque, to show that the brain functions like a receiver...

The brain is a receiver of information, and it sends it to the right pathways.  It receives sensations, but also receives information from the "other two thirds of our conscious energy that is always back home."

For a science cite that the brain is not the sole creator of consciousness, please view Dr. Greyson's talk "Is Consciousness Produced by the Brain?".  It's 90 minutes and cites numerous medical cases where non functioning brains were still conscious, or that after an autopsy showed they should not have been functioning but did function.  Greyson is interviewed in "It's a Wonderful Afterlife" but the video can be seen here.

This is just my way of saying, "Hey, you brain scientists out there.  You're looking in the wrong direction."

Why is it important for me to stand on the stage, turn on the lights and shout "IT'S ONLY A PLAY!!"  Because these scientists are directing policy, influencing medical care, and they have not yet understood or begun to explore how it can be that our consciousness exists prior to coming here, it exists after we are here, and it exists WHILE WE ARE HERE.  In other words, if you "want to be in touch with the other two thirds of your consciousness" you can.

My two cents.
Not mine. Curtis Hanson's
