Altered States and the Search for Sentient Intelligence from Other Worlds
by Micah Hanks
Magic, Mysticism and the Molecule presents an investigative analysis of ancient magical practices, mystical states, and out of body encounters through the use of various methods of reaching altered states of consciousness. Many concepts and ideas are explored, including:
* What are the roots of the mystical experience? Is this an altered state that can be attained through meditation and other similar practices?
* Does the study of altered states of consciousness offer us new perspectives on age old phenomena reported by humans throughout history?
* Psychologist Raymond Moody, Ph.D. observed that many of his patients had experiences with what they perceived as apparitions of their deceased loved ones in reflective surfaces; what element of the human mind is the root behind such experiences?
* Are there similar states of mind that can produce experiences like sleep paralysis, out of body experiences, psychedelic visions, UFO abductions and near death experiences? Could they all be much more similar than we’ve previously imagined?

The Complete Guide to Maverick Podcasting
by Micah Hanks
In this instructional installment from author Micah Hanks, the world of podcasting and audio journalism are explored… along with a few of the more the “unconventional” elements of what makes this medium more accessible and rewarding than ever before.
Podcasting has become a medium utilized both by major broadcasters, as well as those who seek to reach smaller audiences from the comfort of their homes. But it is also something that evades many who could be doing it, because of a few simple misconceptions: chief among them, the idea that it’s just too difficult to learn how to do, or simply too expensive to put time and money behind.
Dispelling these and many other misconceptions, Hanks unravels the mystery behind “the art of the podcast,” and offers a unique perspective on how the medium can be used as a promotional or monetary endeavor, even while traveling. Additionally, he explores the various methods and equipment involved, and how podcasting can be used to engage like-minded thinkers, broaden one’s own horizons, help launch a new business, or even promote an existing one.
But be warned: This book is not for the average would-be audio enthusiast. However, if you’re a free-thinker, and a nonconformist spirit willing to throw yourself to the lions in the quest for reaching new personal horizons, this is the book that will help you learn to use the art of podcasting to your greatest advantage.
“Micah Hanks has given us a sourcebook on podcasting that’s unlike any other; lucid, inspiring, and most of all, entertaining.”

The Ghost Rockets
by Micah Hanks
The Ghost Rockets examines the strange history of unidentified rockets and projectiles reported throughout the last several decades, as well as investigations into a number of conspiracies that have transpired since the end of the Second World War that involve such apparent technologies. Some of these involve some curious, almost apparitional phenomena that are more closely related to secret Nazi propulsion technologies, observed over Scandinavia immediately after the war. While there is a strong UFO component to such reports, other cases discussed in the book involve passenger planes and other aircraft which may have been struck down by errant missiles, in which case cover-ups have ensued for political reasons.
However, this phenomenon is not relegated solely to the years just after WWII. In the chapter titled, “Fear and Flares over Long Island,” an examination of the infamous TWA Flight 800 crash is presented; but rather than asserting that a missile took down the craft, as is alleged by many conspiracy theories proposed over the years, we look instead at separate reports of unidentified “ghost rockets” that appeared in the months and weeks leading up to the crash, as well as a few which took place shortly afterward. Why were these missile-like objects being reported by trained commercial airline pilots so close to the time of the disaster, and what was their source?
Finally, the book concludes with an examination of recent cases that have been made publicly available by NASA’s Aviation Safety Reporting System database, which describe numerous encounters with unidentifiable rocket-like aircraft, many of which fly dangerously close to other aircraft. An exhaustive appendix section also surveys the majority of the better-known ghost rocket reports chronologically since WWII, along with a number of less widely publicized cases as well.
Does this research indicate an unconventional history of drone technologies that have been developed since the late 1940s? Have secret weapons technologies been developed and tested in our skies, which may have led to a handful of deadly accidents? Or is there something more complex to the mystery of The Ghost Rockets?
