Where the Imaginal and the Actual Coalesce
Thursday April 28, 2016
This is part three of our four-part series with "Ian." In this episode, he takes us into the question of what is subjective, internal reality and what is objectively out there in the world. In the life of an experiencer, it often becomes a fascinating blur.

Awakening Part 13: Using Sacred Energies of the Earth
Whitley Strieber explains how to use the ancient sites that are still intact and functional all over the planet. He specifically discusses Avebury and the Great Pyramid as energetic accelerators, and explains why you need not go to them physically in order to gain what they have to offer. In fact, to use the pyramid in the way it was intended to be used, you have to do it non-physically.

If ever there was a reminder of just how powerful we are as creatures of this universe, it is this edition of Awakening.

As always, Whitley stands ready to engage with you and answer your questions to the best of his ability. He can be reached at whitley@strieber.com

Lost Knowledge, Hidden Meanings
April 29, 2016
This is among the strangest and most wonderful stories ever told on Dreamland. Mark Vidler and Catherine Young have made a momentous discovery about ancient megaliths that suggests that our ancestors not only had great knowledge of this planet, but deep insight into hidden meaning and significance that has been almost entirely lost.

Can those insights be restored, and with them an understanding of our planet and our connection to it that has been lost for millennia?

The mission of Dreamland and Unknowncountry is awakening. This interview takes a big step in that direction.

Brain Implant Enables Quadriplegic Man Use of his Hand
A research team at Ohio University has enabled a man suffering from quadriplegia to regain partial use of his right hand, using signals recorded by an implant that was surgically placed in his brain. "For the first time, a human with quadriplegia regained volitional, functional movement through the use of intracortically recorded signals linked to neuromuscular stimulation in real-time," the study's text proclaims.

Ian Burkhart, now 24, broke his neck six years ago in a swimming accident, resulting in his paralysis. Two years ago, he underwent the procedure to have an implant inserted into his brain's motor cortex, where the device picks up on the signals that would ordinarily be sent to the rest of his body to activate his muscles.

Lake Michigan Megaliths may Date Back to the Last Ice Age
When it comes to mysterious prehistoric sites, North America's rich treasure trove of ancient puzzles tend to get overshadowed by more famous examples from Africa, Eurasia, and South America. Earthworks like the Serpent Mound in Ohio, and numerous medicine wheel sites such as Wyoming's Bighorn Medicine Wheel are but two types of these archaeological enigmas, who's ages can be disputed due to the difficulty in determining how old the constructions are.

Saturn's Cassini Probe Offers New Clues for Planet Nine's Location
Following the recent unveiling of evidence that there is an object in the outer reaches of the solar system large enough to affect the orbits of known planetoids, researchers have started looking for more clues as to where the elusive Planet Nine might be found. One of these new investigations was conducted by Matthew J. Holman and Matthew J. Payne of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, using data on the position of the Cassini space probe orbiting Saturn. They used that positioning data to look for purbutations in the probe's orbit to look for the potential influence of an unaccounted-for large gravitational body.

Building the Bridge between the Worlds
This week's Dreamland and Awakening programs once again involve the afterlife. Since my wife Anne died last August, there has been a continuous series of events involving her that suggest that there is an afterlife, and that she not only still exists, but is still conscious of this world and attempting to indicate that it is possible to bridge the gap between worlds.

"It is once again further proof that there was an advanced civilization here with a high level of technology about which we know very little," remarks Dr. Semir Osmanaigc.

Of Magick and Madness
Thursday April 21, 2016
Have you ever met someone who was a genius on the brink of madness? In this riveting detour, Ian returns to tell of his time with a man who showed him that "aliens" might be more closely linked to the occult than outer space. But the more he learned about his friend the more Ian suspected he was crazy. And the more he thought his friend was crazy, the more evidence would present itself that, through the madness, he may have been seeing the truth.

Wild Tiger Numbers Increase for the First Time in Over a Century
The World Wildlife Fund has recently announced some good news on the animal conservation front: the number of tigers living in the wild has increased for the first time since records started to be taken in the early twentieth century. There are at least 3,890 tigers in the wild, up from an estimated 3,200 in 2010. While an increase of a mere 690 individuals mightn't seem like that many, it does represent a 21-percent increase.

"This offers us great hope and shows that we can save species and their habitats when governments, local communities and conservationists work together," says Marco Lambertini, director general of WWF international.
