A couple of weeks ago I received in the mail two stunning lunar calendars. The calendars are the work of Dustin Stanton, who lives in Broomfield, Colorado, and has been designing them for five years now. “They differ from other moon calendars because I make the viewer participate in an observation/creative myth experiment,” he told me in an email. If you’d like to contact Dustin in regard to his lunar calendars, his email is <futureleadersofdesign(at)gmail(dot)com>.
Dean Radin, PhD, Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and author of Supernormal: Science, Yoga, and the Evidence for Extraordinary Psychic Abilities (2013), generously contributed an endorsement to my upcoming book, Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions:
“All living systems depend on electromagnetism. So does a large portion of the global economy. Given its importance you might think we understand all there is to know about the human-electromagnetic relationship. You’d be wrong, as you’ll discover in Proud’s intriguing book Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions.”
Although the book won’t be released until late-November, it’s available for pre-order from Amazon.
A number of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending Graham Hancock’s talk at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, which was held as part of his “Magicians of the Gods” tour. The all-day event was as exciting and informative as I predicted it would be. Being the perfect gentleman that he is, Graham refused to retire for the day until spending a moment with everyone who wished to meet him. By the time it was my turn, poor Graham looked about ready to collapse from exhaustion. (I felt a little guilty for taking up more of his time, yet I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet him.)
Here’s a picture of Graham and myself. I’m the bloke on the left with the super-short hair and wonky glasses; Graham’s the bloke on the right…
I was pleased to notice a review of The Secret Influence of the Moon on the website Facing North, even though it’s hardly the most positive review ever written of one of my books. Those who wish to read the review can find it here.
I wrote the following in response to a couple of issues I had with the review:
“You state in your review: ‘Proud does include a bibliography despite the glaring lack of scientific citations and also an index.’ Because of the confusing way this sentence is worded, it looks as though you’re saying that the book lacks an index, when in fact it does have an index.
“Also, I wish to emphasize that while not all of the scientific facts presented in the book are referenced, I took great pains to ensure that every single quote in the book is accompanied by a reference. Is the lack of citations for scientific facts really that big an issue? It’s supposed to be an enjoyable read on the mysteries of the Moon—not a textbook!”
As some of you may already know, lately I’ve been busy working on a new book, titled Strange Electromagnetic Dimensions, which is scheduled for release in November. (The book was originally titled Electromagnetic Dimensions, but my publisher, New Page Books, decided to add the word “strange” to the title so as to emphasize the paranormal angle of the book. Fair enough, I suppose.)
Anyway, here’s the first hour of a roughly two hour interview I did with Mel Fabregas on Veritas Radio, concerning The Secret Influence of the Moon. Enjoy.
