Michael Sharp, Ph.D., Academic, Sociologist, Psychologist, Researcher, Writer, Author and Spiritual Experiencer
Guest Occupation: Academic, Sociologist, Psychologist, Researcher, Writer, Author, Spiritual Experiencer
Guest Biography:

My name is Dr. Michael Sharp and I'm an an academic with a PhD in sociology and undergraduate degrees in both psychology and sociology. I am the husband of Gina, parent of Stephen, Niko, Vayda, and Tristan, and the caretaker of two cats and two dogs. I teach at a university and at one time did research in scholarly journals and scholarly communication.I even started the world's first electronic sociology journal all those years ago. Now, however, my interests have changed. These days my research and writing is based in a cross between psychology, sociology, and dyed in the wool mysticism.

About ten years ago I had a series of powerful mystical experiences that led me to question both my childhood religious training (I was born and raised Catholic) and also my adopted scientific atheism. Shortly after having these mystical experiences, actually shortly after clearing some rather deeply buried and profound fears that I had struggled with my entire adult life (fears partly the result of my Catholic indoctrination, and partly the result of past life experiences), I began writing spiritual books.

When I started to write, or rather a few months after I started, I thought that I'd write two or three books on chakras, ascension, crystal children, and cosmology. Unfortunately, my unambitious aspirations soon disintegrated because the more I explored the mystical hallways of creation, the more I learned, and the more I wrote about what I was learning, the more dissatisfied I became with current (and past) spiritual offerings. In fact, as time passed it quickly became clear to me that our collective understanding of all things spiritual was incomplete and corrupted. The glorious truths of spirituality, God, and our place and purpose in creation that previous spiritual teachers had brought to this world had been turned against us. Truths that should have empowered and freed us were now factors in our energetic and spiritual oppression. And what was worse, the corruptions and inaccuracy were ubiquitous. From the big religions of this world right down to our modern new age alternatives, all we heard was the lie of how imperfect, flawed, and unevolved we were and how much we deserved (or, if we had adopted a more "progressive" religion/spirituality, had chosen) the world as it currently existed. I soon realized that all these "old world" systems of spiritual thought did was provide excuses and justifications for the political, economic, and social nonsense of this world and for me that was not only unacceptable, but a wholly innaccurate farce of the the high Truths of creation. Having "touched the face of God" more than a few times I bloody well knew that in the eyes of God (or consciousness if you prefer), none of the war, suffering, violence, poverty, and shit and abuse that passes for "life" on this world was acceptable. In fact, to be perfectly honest, it was all a blasphemy in the eyes of God and it all had to be fixed.

Well you wanted to know more about me and there you have it. My name is Michael Sharp and I am building a new spiritual system that is totally self-contained, contains none of the justifications, hierarchies, exclusions, and disempowering archetypes of the old world, and that puts you (gradually and by safe degrees) in touch with the awesome light, power, and glory of your true inner divinity. It really is like nothing you've ever experienced before and if you're ready to remove the blindfold and cast off the chains that bind, just scan your eyes over the left hand menu, click The Lightning Path, and start reading from there.

Richard Sauder, Ph.D., Author, Ufologist, Underground Base Researcher, Speaker, Writer, Political Scientist and Paranormal Experiencer
Guest Occupation: Author, Ufologist, Underground Base Researcher, Speaker, Writer, Political Scientist, Paranormal Experiencer
Guest Biography:

Dr. Richard Sauder is the author of five books and major reports:

- Hidden in Plain Sight: Beyond the X-Files, (2010), his latest work on the secret world of underground bases and tunnels.

- The underground bestseller, Underground Bases and Tunnels: What is the Government Trying to Hide? (1995), which represents his first work on the underground bases issue.

- The esoteric Kundalini Tales (1998),which deals with paranormal and mind control themes.

- Underwater and Underground Bases (2001), which expands the scope of his earlier work to include military plans for manned bases and tunnels beneath the seafloor.

- The Sauder Report: Notes From the Underground (soon to be made available), a 770 page compilation of many of the raw technical, military and government documents on which the nuts and bolts engineering aspects of his research are grounded.

Richard was the first person to systematically popularize the mysterious topic of underground, and then underwater,  bases and tunnels by delving into the open literature of the government, military and industry paper trail.

Richard Sauder is a native Virginian, with an abiding interest in Forteana, unusual information and anomalous paradigm-busting data of all varieties. Beginning in early childhood he has experienced first-hand contact with a variety of paranormal phenomena that have left him a bit puzzled, flummoxed and thoroughly persuaded that there is much more to the Earth and to human perception and consciousness than the mainstream American culture believes.

Some of Richard’s favorite research and reading interests are underground and underwater bases and tunnels,  electronic mind control, Freedom Technology, UFOs, human prehistory and remote antiquity, international politics, the Kundalini energy and alternative thought patterns.

Richard has discussed his work on many radio, TV and Internet programs including Art Bell's Dreamland, Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, the Lou Gentile Show, the Laura Lee Show, Out There TV with Kate and Richard Mucci, Strange Daze with Don Ecker,  Jeff Rense's Sightings on the Radio, the Zoh Hieronimus Show, Mitch Battros’s Earth Changes TV, the Uri Geller Show, the BBC, FOX News (Phoenix), Ted Loman's UFOAZ Talks, Evident Footprints with Don Nicoloff on BBS Radio, Signs of the Times with Laura Knight-Jadczyk, Through the Keyhole with Rich Dolan, Earthfiles with Linda Moulton Howe, and numerous others. He has also spoken at the Whole Life Expos in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, the International UFO Congress in Laughlin, Nevada, Joan Ocean’s E.T. and Dolphin Conference in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, the Leeds (U.K.) International UFO Conference, the NEXUS Magazine International Conference in Amsterdam, the National UFO Conference in Bordentown, New Jersey, HUFON (Houston MUFON), Orange County MUFON, the 2004 and 2005 X-Conferences in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and the Little A’LE’ INN in Rachel, Nevada.  Dr. Sauder also has appeared as an invited author at the UFO Festival in Roswell, New Mexico.

His writings and interviews have appeared in  diverse magazines such  as NEXUS Magazine, UFO Magazine (U.S. and U.K.), Atlantis Rising, UFO Universe, Dossiers Secrets d'États, and on many websites such as Karmopolis.be, rense.com, cyberspaceorbit.com, sott.net and others. Richard’s interest in UFOlogy and related phenomena extends back to childhood and has continued uninterrupted into his adult years. His underground and underwater bases and tunnels research commenced in 1992 and continues to the present day. He has a B.A. in sociology, an M.A. in Latin American studies, an M.S. in forestry and a Ph.D. in political science. He currently resides in San Antonio, Texas where he independently pursues his research.

Dr. Peter A. Sturrock, Mathematician, Electron Physics Researcher, Nuclear Physics Expert, Inventor, Professor, Scientist, Applied Physics Engineer, Astrophysician, Director, Writer, Educator and Chairman
Guest Occupation: Mathematician, Electron Physics Researcher, Nuclear Physics Expert, Inventor, Professor, Scientist, Applied Physics Engineer, Astrophysician, Director, Writer, Educator, Chairman
Guest Biography:

Peter A. Sturrock (b. England, 1924) studied mathematics at Cambridge University from 1942 until 1949, with a three-year interruption (1943-46) to carry out countermeasures research at the Telecommunications Research Establishment (TRE), now the Royal Radar Establishment (RRE). He was elected to a scholarship at St John's College in 1947, was awarded the University Rayleigh Prize for mathematics in 1949, and was elected to a fellowship at St John's in 1952. Research work on electron physics carried out at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University, the National Bureau of Standards in Washington (1949-50), and the Ecole Normale Superieure at the University of Paris (CNRS Fellow, 1950-51), earned him a Ph.D. in 1951. His Ph.D. dissertation was later expanded and published as a monograph entitled Static and Dynamic Electron Optics in 1955.

Sturrock subsequently pursued research in nuclear physics as Harwell Research Fellow at the Atomic Energy Research Establishment, England (1951-53); research on plasma physics as Fellow of St. Johns' College, Cambridge (1953-55); research on microwave tubes as Research Associate in the Microwave Laboratory at Stanford University (1955-58, 1959-60); and research on accelerator physics as Ford Foundation Fellow at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva (1958-59). During this period, Sturrock made a number of inventions, one of them being a microwave tube that operates on a principle subsequently named the "free-electron laser."

Sturrock was appointed Professor of Engineering Science and Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and the Physics Department at Stanford University in January 1961, and is currently Professor of Space Science and Astrophysics in the Applied Physics Department and, by courtesy, in the Physics Department. Sturrock was Chair of the Founding Committee of the Institute for Plasma Research and served as Director from 1964-74 and from 1980-83. He subsequently served (in 1982-83) as Chair of the Founding Committee of the Center for Space Science and Astrophysics and served as Deputy Director from 1983-92 and as Director from 1992 to the present. He also served as Chair of the committees that established (in 1983) the Stanford-NASA-Ames Institute for Space Research, and (in 1986) the Stanford-Lockheed Institute for Astrophysical and Space Research. Since 1961, he has worked primarily on plasma physics, solar physics and astrophysics, but takes an interest also in scientific inference and in the history and philosophy of science. He has published over two hundred scientific articles and two monographs, and has edited five volumes that review plasma physics, solar physics and astrophysics. His most recent monograph, Plasma Physics, an Introduction to the Theory of Astrophysical, Geophysical and Laboratory Plasmas, is a textbook on plasma physics based on a graduate level course that he has taught at Stanford for over twenty years. It is the first book to be published as part of the new Cambridge-Stanford textbook series.

From 1965-66, Sturrock served as Chairman of the Division of Plasma Physics of the American Physical Society, and from 1974-75 as Chairman of the Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society. He was Director of the Summer School on Plasma Astrophysics at Varenna, Italy, in 1966; Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Conference on Plasma Instabilities in Astrophysics held at Asilomar in 1968; and Director of the Skylab Workshop on Solar Flares held at Boulder in 1977. He has also served on many national panels and committees, notably (1984-85) as Chairman of the Advocacy Panel that reviewed Solar Physics for the National Academy of Sciences.

Sturrock is a member of the American Astronomical Society, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the International Academy of Astronautics, and the International Astronomical Union, and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Physical Society, and the Royal Astronomical Society. Sturrock's interests in the role of anomalies in the progress of science led him to chair the Founding Committee of the Society for Scientific Exploration and since 1982 he has served as President of the Society that now has over 500 members worldwide and publishes a quarterly journal. In 1967, Sturrock received the Gravity Prize (for gravitational research) from the Gravity Research Foundation; in 1977, the Lindsay Award from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center; in 1986 the Hale Prize for solar physics from the American Astronomical Society; in 1990, the Arctowski Medal for solar-terrestrial research from the National Academy of Sciences; and in 1992, the Space Sciences Award from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Michael Tellinger Author and Founder of the Ubuntu Party
Guest Occupation: Export Author, Writer, Scientist, Pharmacist, Researcher, Musician, Editor, Artist, Producer, Historian
Guest Biography:

Michael Tellinger has become one of South Africa’s bestselling export authors. His regular articles on human origins and his book Slave Species of god have been praised by readers in over 20 countries.

Michael is a scientist in the true sense of the word, never shying away from controversial issues, scrutinising every clue meticulously. He graduated in 1983 from the University Of Witwatersrand Medical School, Johannesburg, with a B.Pharmaceutics degree, a passion for the cosmos, genetics and human history.

His research and astute understanding of his subject matter has made him a regular guest on many radio shows in the USA and UK with popular hosts like George Noory on Coast to Coast; Kevin Smith, Hillary Raimo, American Freedom Radio, Howard Hughes in the UK; the Camelot Project, and more.

Before applying his writing and research skills to books, Michael followed his other passion, for music. He spent much of his early years in the arts performing on stage and screen. As part of the duo “Stirling & Tellinger” he had several music hits in South Africa. In 1986, he worked in Los Angeles for Cannon Films as a sound designer and editor; and wrote and recorded the controversial anti-apartheid song “We come from Johannesburg”, which was banned under the previous regime. His latest contribution to the arts was a song called “Side By Side With Angels”, for the TSUNAMI disaster fund in 2005, which featured a number of top SA artists. He has written a number of screenplays, children’s educational books and TV shows.

As a producer he created a variety of TV shows and worked as a presenter on numerous others. As a writer in advertising in 1989, he received a Clio award in New York and in 2000 he presented his own weekly show on 567 Cape Talk radio in Cape Town, exploring technology, science and astronomy.

After a 30-year long obsession with the origins of humankind and the genetic anomalies of our species, he took some time out to write Slave Species of god, which became an instant bestseller in South Africa. When Johan Heine exposed the mystery of the stone ruins of South Africa to Michael in 2007, they began an irreversible process of research that led Michael to some startling scientific conclusions and the completion of two more books, Adam’s Calendar and Temples Of The African Gods.

It is uncanny that Michael’s passion for music and his understanding of sound frequency, harmonic resonance and wave formation in scientific terms, has allowed him to make the astounding breakthrough in decoding the mystery of the ancient ruins and lost civilisations of southern Africa.

Michael Tellinger, is an author of four books, scientist and explorer, who has become a real-life Indiana Jones, making ground-breaking discoveries about advanced vanished civilizations at the southern tip of Africa. His continued efforts and analytical scientific approach have produced stunning new evidence that will force us to rethink our origins and rewrite our history books.

Michael is the founder of the global UBUNTU Liberation Movement of higher consciousness and the UBUNTU Party as a political front for this global movement, with members in over 200 countries. The UBUNTU Party participated in the South African elections on the 7th of May 2014 under his leadership - and is now also registered in the UK as a political party. The UBUNTU Party UK will participate in the UK elections on 7 May 2015 under the leadership of Paul Toussaint.

Michael's major contribution to the field of ancient discovery has been delivering the proof of the tools and artefacts that support his scientific findings. He discovered more than 10 million stone ruins that are not dwellings, but energy generating devices. His Torus Stone, that crashed the TSA security systems at DOHA International Airport in July 2013, has sparked the imagination of the global scientific fraternity in the quest for delivering a new free energy device to the people of the world.

Dr. Stephen E. Braude, Doctor of Philosophy, Professor, Parapsychologist, Writer, Author, Pianist, Music Composer and Stereo Photographer
Guest Occupation: Doctor of Philosophy, Professor, Parapsychologist, Writer, Author, Pianist, Music Composer, Stereo Photographer
Guest Biography:

Stephen E. Braude is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy and Former Chair of the Department at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Scientific Exploration.

He studied Philosophy and English at Oberlin College and the University of London, and in 1971 he received his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

After publishing a number of articles in the philosophy of language, temporal logic, and the philosophy of time, he turned his attention to several related problems in the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind — in particular, questions concerning causality, scientific explanation generally, and psychological explanation specifically. One of his overriding concerns was to demonstrate the inadequacy of mechanistic theories in psychology and cognitive science.

Prof. Braude also examined the evidence of parapsychology to see whether it would provide new insights into these and other traditional philosophical issues.

After that, he shifted his focus to problems in philosophical psychopathology, writing extensively on the connections between dissociation and classic philosophical problems as well as central issues in parapsychology—for example, the unity of consciousness, multiple personality and moral responsibility, and the nature of mental mediumship.

Prof. Braude is past President of the Parapsychological Association and is the recipient of several grants and fellowships, including Research Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the BIAL Foundation in Portugal. He has published more than 60 philosophical essays in such journals as Noûs; The Philosophical Review; Philosophical Studies; Analysis; Inquiry; Philosophia; Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society; Philosophy, Psychiatry and Psychology; Social Philosophy and Policy; New Ideas in Psychology; The Journal of Scientific Exploration; and The Journal of Trauma and Dissociation.

He has written five books: ESP and Psychokinesis: A Philosophical Examination (Temple University Press, 1979; revised edition, Brown Walker Press, 2002); The Limits of Influence: Psychokinesis and the Philosophy of Science (Routledge, 1986; revised edition, University Press of America, 1997); First Person Plural: Multiple Personality and the Philosophy of Mind (Routledge, 1991; revised edition, Rowman & Littlefield, 1995); and Immortal Remains: The Evidence for Life After Death (Rowman & Littlefield, 2003); and most recently, The Gold Leaf Lady and Other Parapsychological Investigations, which describes Prof. Braude's own encounters with the paranormal.

Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Author and Lecturer
Guest Occupation: Clinical Psychologist, Author, Lecturer
Guest Biography:

Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in New York. She received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University, New York. As she was exposed to Eastern teachings at an early age, her specialty is in the integration of this Eastern philosophy and Western psychology. It is this blend of East and West that allows her to reach a global audience, and establishes her as one of a kind in the field of mindfulness psychology.

Dr. Shefali has worked with a varied demographic; from survivors of the Tsunami to women from economically disadvantaged countries; from inner city youth to suburban families and corporate leaders. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Shefali conducts regular workshops on Mindful Living and Conscious Parenting around the world.

Dr. Shefali is an author whose first book, "It's a Mom: What you should know about the early years of motherhood" debuted on the Indian bestseller list for four weeks. Her second book, "The Conscious Parent" is being published by Namaste Publishing.


Parents seek Shefali's words because they find great resonance with her Mindful Parenting approach which espouses a way of "being" as opposed to incessant "doing" - where alliances and mutual empowerment are the hallmark of the parent-child relationship as opposed to conflict and power plays. Corporations seek her out because her Mindful Living approach helps employees to break through inner barriers to success and find greater resilience, empowerment and purpose in their work. Schools seek her out because she offers enriching teacher training workshops focused on transforming the classroom into a living laboratory, where children not only learn valuable academic lessons but, more importantly, life lessons, such as frustration tolerance, conflict resolution, and empathic connectivity.

Shefali's first book "It's a Mom: What you should know about the early years of motherhood" debuted on the Indian National Bestseller List for four weeks. She is currently working on her second book which is focused on Mindful Living. This book turns the traditional notion of parenthood on its head; shifting the epicenter from a linear, parent-to-child relationship, to a mutual, circular,parent-with-child, relationship. In this new paradigm, the focus of the parenting dynamic is not so much on the spiritual and emotional development of the child, as it is of the parent. Here, t he child is recognized not only as the emotional receiver of its parent's psychological and spiritual legacy, but as the usher of its parent's psychological and spiritual transcendence.

Guest Biography:

Eric Merola
Director, Editor, Producer, Screenwriter --> Director of Burzynski: The Film, a documentary that tells the story of one doctor's fight to cure cancer without the use of chemotherapy and other invasive approaches.

Seek out BURZYNSKI (maybe its doctor, too) in Eric Merola's new documentary; Interview with the filmmaker


Eric Merola, director of Burzynski: The Movie. Topics may include the use of Antineoplastons to cure certain forms of cancer, Antineoplastons versus other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, and why the FDA was committed to prosecute Dr. Burzynski.

Eric will reveal the shocking (true) story of a medical doctor and Ph.D. (biochemist) named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.

Burzynski is the compelling story of a pioneering medical doctor and PhD biochemist who has discovered the genetic mechanism to cure most human cancers. This timely, eye-opening documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey that both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons - resulting in the largest and most convoluted defeat against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.

Directed by Eric Merola, Burzynski details the heroic plight of the doctor who faced relentless governmental harassment in order to bring his life-saving treatment to the world. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film that chose Dr. Burzynski's treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of their original medical records to support their full recovery from prior terminal cancer diagnoses. This whistle-blowing film was an Official Selection in the Byron Beach International Film Festival (Australia), San Luis Obispo International Film Festival (CA), Garden State Film Festival (NJ), Palm Beach Film Festival (FL), and Newport Beach Film Festival (CA), where it won the Humanitarian Vision Award.
