A true story based upon my life-after death communication (ADC) with a former physicist colleague with the Department of Defense (DoD).
Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river that carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.

The story you are about to read is true.

"John," the voice on the phone said, "I have some very bad news."

My best friend George Sebastian Viguet III (pronounced "Vee-gay") had died that day of a massive heart attack in Huntsville, Alabama, his wife had just informed me.

Born in White Castle, Louisiana on January 24th, 1947, he was a vibrant, young man of 40 when his life ended suddenly that Monday morning at 9:30 A.M. on November 9th, 1987, as officially noted on the Certificate of Death.

In fact, George drew his last breath in the medical clinic of his family physician located right next door to Huntsville Hospital. So you couldn’t ask for a better location to have a cardiac crisis nor a better set of circumstances. That is, as I learned he drove himself there on the way to his office because he was not feeling well. He had hoped to merely get some medicine and be on his way again.

However as fate would have it, that was not in the cards for while being examined by the family doctor the worst possible scenario unfolded; his heart suddenly exploded. Thus all attempts to resuscitate him failed.

I had known George for 18 years. We had met in 1969 as soldiers stationed at the U.S. Army Missile and Munitions Center and School, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama.


Along with a few dozen other men undergoing highly-specialized training in computers, electronics, and missilery, we were assigned to the same select military unit, the 116th Ordnance Detachment that had transferred from Fort Riley, Kansas.

Our specific outfit was preparing for deployment as a one-of-a-kind missile support team to West Germany at the apex of the Cold War. Interestingly enough, we were going to set-up our shop at one of Adolph Hitler’s former Nazi SS strongholds during WWII. It was called Merrell Barracks now.

Indeed I was really looking forward to this "field trip" of sorts, too, as I had studied the German language, culture, and history for 3 years while at Central Kitsap High School in Silverdale, Washington.


Upon hindsight, or a past-life memory, it was as if I knew subconsciously that I was going to use that knowledge, again.



From Grits and Gravy to Bratwurst and Beer

The day to depart for Germany arrived and I awoke at the crack of dawn on January 28th, 1970, showered, shaved, dressed, breakfasted, and drove us to the Huntsville International Airport.


Shortly thereafter, I kissed my wife of 2 months, Connie, goodbye as we watched our married officers and senior enlisted personnel get aboard our plane with their families, then the rest of us, for the flight’s first leg to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Upon arrival there we were taken by bus to McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey, flying on then later that evening to Europe via the Military Airlift Command (MAC).

Going overseas on a military assignment is a gut-wrenching experience. There is no greater trauma to a young, newly-married soldier especially than to be involuntarily torn from your loved ones’ arms, in my opinion. A civilian has not a clue how difficult a task that is to do. So, of course, that day is forever etched into my mind and heart some 35-years later.

The shock is cultural, climatic, and culinary as well.


For example, we departed Alabama on a warm clear-blue sky day and arrived in Germany on a cold, cloudy-rainy day at Rhein-Main Air Force Base in Frankfurt. I went from "see ya’ll later," to "Guten Tag!" I also went from an Alabama breakfast of "biscuits, grits, gravy, and coffee" to a German lunch of "bread, bratwurst, sauerkraut, and beer" in 24 hours!

Notwithstanding, we were gratefully bussed down to Nuernberg a few hours to the southeast along the Czechoslovakia border, finally settling into our new living quarters at Merrell Barracks late that evening totally exhausted. I slept like the proverbial log that night oblivious to my stark surroundings. But in the morning I awoke to find myself within a massive, multi-story concrete block structure with bullet-holes visible on the walls.

These combat remnants we learned were the calling cards left behind by Allied GIs who captured it from the former Nazi SS occupants in 1945. No doubt if we were in the USA’s fashionable mind-set today, we would have seen this sign displayed on a soldier’s door somewhere: "Martha Stewart Does Not Live Here!" Whatever the case, the single guys were stuck here for the duration of their tour of duty.

In contrast, we married guys began counting the days until our wives would arrive "in country," so we could live downtown like German civilians. I wanted out of here as soon as possible as I did not fit in with this foot-loose and fancy-free single crowd at all anymore.

To digress a moment, George married Kathy, and I, Connie, a couple months before we had to ship out and so those days of separation were tortuous for us as I recall. But our wives arrived on April 10th, 1970 on a chartered flight out of New York City, and we made up for that lost time in a big way - visiting medieval castles among other things. Specifically, Connie and I took an American Express Tour of Bavaria, Switzerland, the French Riviera, and northern Italy. In particular we attended the 1970 Grand Prix of Monaco, watching it from a hillside overlooking the harbor was surreal. Wow, what a day for the diary!

We likewise partied in our local German villages at every opportunity. A smile comes to my face as I recall us swaying back and forth with our liter-sized beer steins in synch to the native music being played in those big circus-like tents at the Folks Festivals. I loved the yodeling songs and the spirited "Chicken Dance" and the food that added so much joy to these celebrations.


These are fond memories for a big eater like me but they ended abruptly on May 7th, 1971 to be exact. For Connie and I returned to Alabama, where her parents lived and I was accepted to attend the University of Alabama in Huntsville under the GI Bill, as did George and Kathy a few months later by the way.

Initially I began my collegiate studies in electronics engineering but George, on the other hand, pursued a rigorous curriculum in physics, graduating with honors. This guy was born to be a scientist: He was very bright and very introverted.

In fact, I was one of the few persons George felt comfortable talking to about non-technical matters, conversations held late at night usually over cold beer and hotly contested chess games. From these exchanges, I knew that George believed that when you were dead, you were dead and gone, period. That was it, game over.

But that was not my belief and at his elaborate Catholic funeral, where I was a pallbearer, I stared at that metal-box in front of me solemnly. I kept asking myself over and over again: Where is George?

Where in the world - or out of this world - is the "soul" of George right now at this very minute? I sincerely wanted to know the truth. This desperate heartfelt plea paid dividends, as George was not dead!



Talking Telepathically with the Dead

How do I know this is true?


It is because in June 1988, nearly seven months to the day after I helped place his casket in a marble-faced mausoleum in Huntsville, Alabama, I saw George in my master bedroom in my new home in Silverdale, Washington, 2500 miles away from where he "died."


From indeed what I thought at first was merely a lucid dream of him, I saw George standing there shimmering in a holographic body of light right in front of me looking well - and smiling!

Although, initially, it was his clothing that really got my undivided attention because George was wearing a brightly-colored, short-sleeved Hawaiian luau shirt with a white beachcomber hat on his head. This was no dream and I stared at my friend like a deer caught in halogen headlights.

This is ironic, I mumbled. Here I quit my job in Alabama and moved back to my former hometown, Silverdale, in April of 1988 to get over the grief that I was experiencing: Yet there George stood, plain as the nose on his face!

George was really alive and now I had to deal with it.


That was the tough part as my paradigm - model of reality - clearly did not include an option for talking to the dead, even if we did survive death itself. What about going to heaven and all that jazz; why would he remain and how could I see him now? Well, I was a science guy by training and temperament, too, so I started to slowly piece the psychological and physiological facts together.

This much I knew then: I had been in an altered state of mind, what I know now we call all too casually the state of "trance," when I saw him. That is, suddenly I could see multi-dimensionally and communicate telepathically with George. But one of the most bizarre aspects to my experience actually helped me validate it later as a bon a fide after-death communication.

That is, I saw that George had a row of flattened metal beer cans stuffed inside his hat’s headband. Now we were both avid beer drinkers at the time of his "death," so that in and of itself was not surprising, yet upon deep reflection I grasped the significance to this comical imagery.

And this is what ultimately blew my mind - and third eye - wide open: Months later I recollected what I had said to George while at the funeral home in Huntsville, Alabama, not aloud but to myself. I had leaned over his casket to look him squarely in the face and then projected this thought attempting to alleviate the severity of the situation - at least for me. I said mentally to him, "George, a joke is a joke, let’s go get a beer!"

To the point: George had heard me speak those words to him that day no doubt about it! Unequivocally, he was showing me symbolically by his colorful party attire and "the old beer cans in the hat band trick" that he was still very much alive and, equally, he was giving me a clue as to our own future psychic powers once we too reopen our third eye in era-2012.

Today I realize that mind-to-mind communication - telepathy - will become the common means of information exchange between the living and the "dead" in the years ahead, as well as with other so-called "alien" species within our living cosmos.


This ability is not an anomaly, in other words, but is sine qua non of the mystic, prophet, and shaman-in-training as well.

In summary, it is simply part of the total psychic package of new tools that comes unwrapped when your third eye opens and you finally see into the Fifth Dimension.


Thus I conclude as did science writer Lynne McTaggart of London, England in The Field: The Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe:

"Death may be merely a matter of going home or, perhaps, staying behind - returning to The Field."

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.


This is the home of our imagination.

Science of Soul: The End-Time Solar Cycle of Chaos in 2012 A.D.



Description: This is part two to my first article titled 'Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century' that speaks to more of the lessons I learned from my contact by a "dead" friend and an optics physicist co-worker with the U.S. Department of Defense.


"Trance is the real perception state of humankind."
 - Holger Kalweit,

author of 'Shamans, Healers, and Medicine Men'


After-Death Communication (ADC) is the official term now given to what happened to me spontaneously in June 1988 where I was contacted by a "deceased" federal government physicist colleague, George Viguet (pronounced vee-gay).


My friend had "died" prematurely at age 40 from a sudden cardiac arrest seven months previously in Huntsville, Alabama, but appeared suddenly "out-of-the-blue" one morning and that invoked a state of trance in me. I slipped into a very unique consciousness that was full-of-information about life and death in fact.

So, as a person with a scientific and religious background, I began an investigation into this state of mind that resulted in a book titled 'Tranceformers: Shamans of the 21st Century'. My writings, in a nutshell, explain the larger relationship we have between what we call "heaven - the land of the dead" and the Earth, Sun, Milky Way Galaxy and our future world events in era-2012.


Thus, I'd like to share some of these insights with you in this article now.



Psychologist Kenneth Ring, Ph.D., a retired professor emeritus with the University of Connecticut, put forth an idea regarding the goal of evolution decades ago that captured my attention once I had my ADC and had to ponder its meaning and find it - or lose my mind in the process seemingly.

In his landmark book 'The Omega Project: Near-Death Experiences, UFO Encounters, and Mind at Large,' he speculated that life in general is made of "light," the sunshine of stars, the solar plasma radiation that permeate the cosmos itself.


This was simply not done back then in those days, to apply solid-state physics knowledge to living biological systems. It is gaining momentum today as prolific life science writer of six books and 150 articles on biophysics and chemistry, Dr. Mae-Wan Ho, says,

"The most remarkable implication of our findings is that organisms are completely liquid crystalline."

The Rainbow and The Worm: The Physics of Organisms.

The implications of these ideas above are enormous as they point to the properties of solar plasma physics and briefly that means we and creation may well be immortal beings of light. That is, our bodies can "die" but our thoughts, feelings, and memories may forever be part and particle of a living Mind at Large: God in plain terms.

More so, Dr. Ring's parapsychology research that ran the gamut from alien abductions to near-death encounters with angels confirmed that we are witnessing the classical opening of our third eye today by interacting with higher order beings of light, or what he cleverly-coined as the "shamanizing of humanity."


This process he defined as the emergence of an,

"encounter-prone personality - a distinctive, spiritually sensitive, and visionary psyche that may, collectively, represent the next stage in human evolution."

The key concept I grasped from all of these studies was that our states-of-consciousness are literally linked to the solar cycles of electricity and magnetism.


This is why I also just completed a DVD on this topic with Reality Entertainment Studios in London and Hollywood co-directing it, titled Science of Soul: The End-Time Solar Cycle of Chaos in 2012 A.D.

Indeed, keep your "third eye" peeled on the Sun in Solar Cycle 24.

Robert O. Becker, M.D., author of The Body Electric, and Cross-Currents: The Promise of Electromedicine, the Perils of Electropollution, wrote an article titled "The Relationship Between Bioelectromagnetics and Psychic Phenomena" that was published in the American Society for Psychical Research, ASPR Newsletter, 16, Spring 1990.


In it he proclaimed forthrightly that,

"the earth’s geomagnetic field and living organisms show that a firm [psychic] link has been established between them."

Another physician, Edgar Wilson, wrote in the Journal for the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine:

"Humans seem to possess an extremely complex biomagnetic energy field that operates outside of the nervous system alone."

That is, our mind-field is the mind-field of our Sun's solar system first and foremost and then the Earth - but also beyond into outer space.

To the point: Space is Cosmic Consciousness itself!

Indeed I wonder if NASA is on the right track with respect to space exploration, as the trance state-of-mind may have a teleportation capacity that has not been explored yet.


For as the 1960’s Mars Mission astronaut Brian O’Leary, Ph.D. asks in his book Exploring Inner and Outer Space,

"Can the trance state create the extraordinarily real experience of movement at will through space, time, and other dimensions? Just as our alleged UFO visitors appear to be able to operate with regard to outer space?


Will outer space travel become easier once we realize that the farthest reaches of all space may be visited through our inner space?"

That is to say, our cosmos is a hologram - a whole message.

In fact, it was this mystical trance state of mind - cosmic consciousness - that Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell encountered up close and personal during some of his space flights. That unforgettable sense of "living felt presence" during his Moon Mission led him to launch, pardon the pun, the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Palo Alto, California upon his return to our planet to formally explore the outer reaches of our own inner space further.


This ultimately inspired a colleague of his, author of Pole Shift, John White, to identify this new breed of humanity they were contemplating by the Latin phrase "Homo Noeticus" - or a person that has precognitive - remote viewing - skills. Dr. White adds that "Precognition is [merely] the scientific term for paranormal knowledge of future events."

Of course, upon hindsight we can see clearly that we have had many folks throughout world history display these blossoming psychic talents for catching glimpses of the past and the future in the present moment.

In particular, I am referring not only to shamans but to Christian trance mystics too such as Edgar Cayce (1877-1945). He is someone who would fit this category of visionary and is in fact a person White studied for his timely predictions of a pole shift in our near term.


Cayce indicated a time would come when the planet would be so polluted that it will begin to eliminate the threat to life posed by humanity through a catastrophic series of Earth Changes.


Beyond a reasonable doubt, that time is now, and, again, it is the role of the mystic, prophet, and shaman to warn the world of looming catastrophes and how to prepare for them. In my book I make recommendations yet I'd be remiss if I did not state "on-the-record" that I see all coastlines of our globe at great risk for cataclysms. The reasons are many not just tidal waves and super storms.

Nonetheless, here is the rest of my story: Cayce - a.k.a., the "sleeping prophet" - who had his own shamanic trance abilities and insights into natural disasters yet was optimistic. He repeatedly stated forcefully that "mind is the builder" of both physical and spiritual reality.


So, as I have expressed above, it is my hypothesis that the goal of evolution is to make the contents of our collectively unconscious "mind-field" collectively conscious in order for us to employ these visions in our everyday affairs and even change the outcomes of disasters to more positive, survivable, situations.

How do we do that you ask: Can you say "A-U-M?"

Robert Keith Wallace, Ph.D., an avid researcher of altered states of mind, reports in his book, The Physiology of Consciousness, that as people develop skills in trance meditation techniques they change their perception of reality through shifting into higher realms, and these,

"subjects sometimes describe their experience in terms of a momentary feeling that the breath has stopped and the body is filled with energy and pure awareness."

So what happens in trance that does not happen otherwise?

Physicist Claude Swanson confirms in The Synchronized Universe: New Science of the Paranormal,

"Entering deep [trance] meditation states causes a synchronization of the vibrations of the DNA in the body, and it is very likely that this is one of the keys to ‘psychic superpowers.’


‘Phase’ acts like a fifth dimension which distinguished one parallel reality, one ‘universe’ from another."

We become enlightened, in other words, to future events and our role in them by downloading more subtle, faster vibrating electromagnetic waveforms of information. In blunt terms, you don't need a human brain to be conscious! That is a filter so that you don't become overwhelmed by too much input at once.

What is information? It is solar energy, the "biophoton" fields of sunlight, within our DNA.

Highly-respected German biophysicist Fritz-Albert Popp suggests that DNA may be the "mind molecule." Anthropologist Jeremy Narby, Ph.D., author of The Cosmic Serpent - DNA and the Origins of Knowledge, says that Professor Popp confirmed in a telephone conversation with him recently from his European laboratory:

"Yes, consciousness could be the electromagnetic field constituted by the sum of these [DNA] emissions."

Award-winning science writer Michael Talbot said in his now classic book Holographic Universe,

"The closest we can come to describing what they [fields] are, is to say that they are spatial structures in the fabric of space itself."

Do you get the implications of what all these folks are saying to us?


What these solar fields of light are is non-physical - pure energy - but what these fields do is very physical; they create molecules of matter, our "physical" reality! The bottom-line then is we are light beings of information compressed into meat bodies in order to have a limited experience of creation! There is so much more that it would literally blow our minds to witness it, if unprepared by those that have gone before us.

Dr. Robert Wallace adds,

"In terms of DNA the optimal state of physiological functioning is one in which there is a fully integrated and unimpeded flow of information from the DNA to all parts of the body."

What type of information is stored within our bodies?


It is our "myths" of heaven, our former condition prior to being born on this planet and as physicist J. Nigro Sansonese reiterates in The Body of Myth: Mythology, Shamanic Trance, and Sacred Geography of the Body:

"Myths make use of the special knowledge of our bodies’ life processes to tell us about ourselves, about who we are and whence we have come."

My greatest revelation from my close encounter with my buddy George Viguet, after all was said and done, was that I saw the grand underlying and overriding purpose of evolution: To see into space!


That is, we want to interact consciously with the Kingdom of Heaven; that is our task to fulfill, the flip side of the coin, as Jesus stated through his teaching parables - myths.


In the words of the Gnostic scriptures:

"We want to make the two [realms of existence] one again. Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will Be Done on Earth as it is in Heaven."

Again, how do we do this now?

Scholar Stevan L. Davies gives us his opinions for using trance rituals in Jesus the Healer: Possession, Trance, and the Origins of Christianity:

"Religious trance perception may be understood to be the perception of some other supernatural place beyond this world or, much more probably for the case of Jesus and his associates, it may be understood to be a radically revised mode of perception of this world.


The ‘Gospel of Thomas (113)’ gives this account: His disciples asked him,

‘On what day will the Kingdom come?’ [Jesus] said, ‘It will not come by your expecting it. They will not say, ‘Look here’ or ‘Look there,’ but the Kingdom of the Father is spread out on the earth and people do not see it.’"

Why don't we see that the Kingdom of Heaven for human beings is linked to the Earth and thus our "dead" loved ones are still here as well?


And what does this have to do with the trance of the prophet, mystic, and shaman in terms of accessing useful information for us in terms of predicting our future?

In a word, everything!

For heaven is located in the sky above our heads and the way to communicate with its citizens is through the use of trance as that is the synchronized wavelength frequency of their DNA in its ideal state too without a physical brain-body to limit it.


In other words, DNA is an immortal liquid-crystal computer, a transmitter-receiver of information as I document in my book comprehensively, DNA processes the solar ray information broadcast into space by the Galactic Center via our Sun!


Our Sun is thus likewise a filter for the consciousness of the Milky Way star clusters and so on and so forth throughout the cosmos. More than building-blocks of matter and molecules, we can now see the building-blocks of mind are the solar systems too!

Hence, the logic behind the worship of Sun Gods!

This is what the Mayans and Egyptians knew about these matters as physicist Thomas G. Brophy, Ph.D., revealed in his new book The Origin Map: Discovery of a Prehistoric, Megalithic, Astrophysical Map and Sculpture of the Universe, after he painstakingly dissected the purpose of pyramids and a related ancient stone circle in the Sahara Desert 100 miles west of Aswan, Egypt called Nabta Playa.




"Such a function," Dr. Brophy proclaims, "seems to involve certain alignments among the super massive black hole at the Galactic Center, the Big Bang, the Sun (probably at vernal equinox sunrise), Earth’s axis, and human beings.


This may involve purely physical processes on one end of the spectrum, or involve human consciousness on the other end of the spectrum."

Islamic scholar Henry Corbin hit the proverbial nail on the head in his text Spiritual Body and Celestial Earth:

"The Heavens are light and are here now but we can not see them. What this teaches us is that it is the business of the rest of the community, its Earthly members, to attain this point of view, this spiritual level.


This is exactly what it means to ‘rise,’ to be transported to the heights. It has nothing to do with ‘flying away’ and arriving somewhere in Heaven. Nor does it mean that the physical exitus of death is necessary to take you out of this Earthly elemental world we perceive with our senses and help you reach this other world.


No, it means to get there while remaining in this world."

Unfortunately, we are not "tuned" to the sky presently, and therein lies the purpose of the precession of the equinoxes and the shift of the ages from Dark to Golden - rapture into the music of the spheres and the reunification of Heaven on Earth!

In closing, it is my genuine heartfelt desire that you can see why such traumas as the after-death communication and the near-death experience invoke such "shock and awe" when they do reveal the "heavenly" secrets of the magnetosphere to us.


For we are called to apply that wisdom to our war-ravaged world here and now as it is facing a cataclysmic crisis in climate and consciousness in era - 2012.


That is in fact the mission for the Shamans of the 21st Century!
