Rick Philips, "The Anomaly Man" - Estoric blogger, author, lecturer, paranormal experiencer this week July 29, 2012
Rick Phillips is back again this week joining Eric and Lon for what is certain to be a fun and informative program!
Estoric blogger, author, lecturer, paranormal experiencer and
Phenomenologist Rick Phillips was born 60 years ago in Shamokin PA, but lived within a year and grew up in Euclid Ohio. Unlike most humans, Phillips remembers his FIRST thought - at his third birthday party he remembers the first words heard in his head `I Am Three' - his first I AM moment. Indeed, his early childhood had other unusual circumstances that led him to consider huge ideas - including his mothers `finding of Humanism' (to replace standard religion) and his grandmothers strong interest in UFOs; including him often hearing her say
about UFOs `I wish they would land and take me'.
So, perhaps as a result of the above - indeed, even from the earliest of ages, and awareness, Phillips remembers many possible non-rdinary realities; such as:
Time Distortion as a child when throwing a stone at someone and as the stone went towards the persons back - time slowed down significantly in his perception A one time `we won't hurt you' bedroom visitor who instilled sleep movement immobilization and speech immobilization - under age six.
Poltergeist phenomena in home - most likely of the grandfather he was living with at the time of his sudden death when 13 years old.
Indeed, the paranormal experiences have continued throughout Phillips' life including: Automatic writing/Thinking - From 1974-1976 would have to suddenly write concepts he knew nothing about - later to find he was writing Phenomenology ideas similar to Husserl and Sartre when he found those thinkers works. Phillips calls these ideas `The Phillips Phenomenology' and it forms one of his foundations of looking at the anomalous phenomena in the world. He has two blogs that deeply dig into his phenomenology - one called `What Is Not Able To Not Be Is
and the other is Phillips's main esoteric blog and his first investigations into the worlds Fortean phenomena - it's called `The Heavy Stuff' - http://theheavystuff.com/
Telekinesis witness - 1973 with former roommate at Ohio University, Curt Chaplin - the hallway interview guy, of `The People's Court' for the past 15 years. The telekinesis happened at a pre-selected `power spot' and was during extreme talks of Chaplin and Phillips about Carlos Castaneda's first book - The Teachings of Don Juan. Specifically, Chaplin and Phillips were by far MOST interested in the appendix of the book called `The Structural Analysis'. (Have REVERSE related event with John Flower.)
Full blown Missing Time Incident with Two Others - 1986 with intellectual friend John Flower (so intellectual that he was once an actor for an ad in Rolling Stone that called for a `40's bearded intellectual'). The description of what is remembered of the structure of this `time gap' is worth listening to and thinking about. One great post on The Heavy Stuff Phillips wrote was called `The Missing Space of Missing Time Incidents'. Phillips also may have had a `smaller' missing time incident in the mid-70's also.
Controlled Lucid Dreaming - About a dozen times using Carlos Castaneda's technique of `finding ones hands' in a dream and then setting up a phenomenology there. Phillips describes this reality state as totally unique.
Close Up UFO Sighting - 1991 - Very close sighting with a great
background story. Ultimately, this has led Phillips to be a near daily UFO blogger. His highest rated (Alexa) blog is called UFO Disclosure Countdown Clock-http://ufodisclosurecountdownclock.blogspot.com/
started in 2007 and put into near daily full gear since 2010 and now with over 550 posts.
But, all of the above - has been fed into the mind of Phillips - which also has had `interesting experiences' beyond the near automatic esoteric phenomenology writing (BTW, most of Phillips's blogs are indeed just that type of approach.) Most of those `outside influences' came as the result of exposure
to some of the best thinkers of `un-natural things' - Such as Ouspenski and Gurdjieff, -- when in the mid 1970's - Phillips attended along with J.Flower some `4th Way' Meetings; barely skirting the `higher awareness' cultlike folk they met at the meetings. Nonetheless, Phillips found and finds the awareness teachings of The 4th Way extremely powerful in being aware of mental processes.
The ultimate result of all the above is an engaging speaker with possible insights and definite opinions that are often unique. Indeed, in 2012 Phillips has been turning his previous unique insightful blog posts into Kindle books - including top sellers in the `Near Death Experience' category such as `Going To The Light At Death - The New Theories'. Other top Kindle books by H. R. Phillips, Rick's Kindle Author Name, include `The Noosphere 9-11-2001 Anomaly' which recounts what happened to the random number generators at Princeton University that day, and multiple UFO books including The Stephenville 2008 UFO Events and The 2006 O'Hare Airport UFO Incident.
Phillips also has contributed to a new book released in 2012 by Robert Cheatham called Materialization's and Manifestations (UFO Drag Queen) - who has gathered bloggers such as Phillips, Bruce Duensing and Eric Kuersten to contribute to his work - all of whom can be found on Phillips's Esoteric Blog called `The C Influence'.
Phillips has also appeared on internet radio shows such as The
L. A. Marzulli's Show, the UK show `Now That's Weird', and the Beyond The Edge Radio show.
