But Dr Beischel hadn't even met Corey when she'd spoken with the medium! could the medium have accurately described Corey's deceased best friend--before Dr Beischel had even met Corey? This changed Dr Beischel's life--so much so that she gave up a career in the pharmaceutical industry to pursue controlled research on mediums, applying her scientific mind-set to this understudied area. Mediumship research is Dr Beischel's area of focus at the Windbridge Research Center. Her basic premise: Let's see if we can show whether mediums can truly provide information about dead people that they could not have otherwise known, and let's make sure we tightly control the experiments. To do so, she first finds talented mediums after an extensive screening process. Only after they are certified can they participate in her studies.

For two seconds, Falcon sat motionless. Then, slowly, the 61,000-lb missile eased itself off the pad, fire gushing from its base. It roared into the air. The SpaceX team cheered. Fourteen kilometers it climbed, reaching a speed of 450 meters per second. Two and a half minutes later, Falcon was ready to drop its first stage engine and blast its second stage into orbit--right on schedule. With a click, the rocket separated in two and the discarded first stage tube fell away. And the video feed cut out. The thing about giant swings is they come with increased odds of failure. Babe Ruth swung big and smashed every home run record in baseball. Most parents I see wonder what may have caused their child's anxiety and if they might have contributed to it in any way.

So, is there any surprise that we get so befuddled when we are told to quieten our minds? Which one of the hundreds of thousands of mini minds are we supposed to quieten? So, what we do as an instinctive response to understand our minds is create (in our minds) alternative versions of ourselves that will represent certain parts of our mind. To give you an example, the confused and puzzled part of my mind I have lovingly referred to as my disciple. This is my alter-ego. The very alter-ego that has been bombarding me with questions throughout this article. The less muddled part of my brain is my consciousness.

In just a moment, but not quite yet, I'll invite you to use the power of your mind's eye to see and feel yourself descend 12 floors in an elevator. Can you see it in front of you? That's right.

When sleep paralysis occurs, you've come out of your dream into consciousness before the temporary cessation in communication with your muscles has passed. Another theory suggests that the paralysis is, in fact, all part of a hallucination - which might help to account for some of the feelings that sufferers claim during sleep paralysis episodes. These include feelings of oppression or pressure on the chest, or being violently beaten or choked.
