The story you are about to read is true.
"John," the voice on the phone said,
"I have some very bad news."
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
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,
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,
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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.

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,
'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
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
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,
distinctive, spiritually sensitive, and visionary psyche that may,
collectively, represent the next stage in human evolution."
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
In it he proclaimed forthrightly that,
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
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
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

polluted that it will begin to eliminate the threat to life posed by
humanity through a catastrophic series of Earth Changes.
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
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,
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
describe their experience in terms of a momentary feeling that
the breath has stopped and the body is filled with energy and
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

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.,
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:
could be the electromagnetic field constituted by the sum of
these [DNA] emissions."
Award-winning science writer
Michael Talbot said in his now classic
"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
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
It is our "myths" of heaven, our former condition prior to
being born on this planet and as physicist J. Nigro Sansonese
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
"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
"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

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,

Our Sun is thus likewise a filter for

forth throughout the cosmos. More than building-blocks of matter and
molecules, we can now see the building-blocks of mind are the solar
Hence, the logic behind the worship of Sun Gods!

processes on one end of the spectrum, or involve human consciousness

Islamic scholar Henry Corbin hit the proverbial nail on the head in

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
