Magic, Mysticism & the Molecule

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:

* Do mirrors act as portals to other realms? According to Dr. Raymond Moody, many of his patients described 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?

* Do Tibetan mystics possess the ability to create “tulpas” or thought-forms that manifest physically from their mind alone?

* How are sleep paralysis, UFO abductions, out of body experiences, psychedelic visions and near death experiences all interconnected? Could they all be much more similar than we’ve previously imagined?

“Are ghosts, spirits, Big Foot, alien encounters and the manifestation of unusual or bizarre creatures such as elves and demons the legitimate result of a presently misunderstood expansion of human consciousness? Do they actually exist? Should we continue to scientifically explore these occult approaches in an effort to discover the possibility of undiscovered portals to unseen dimensions? Read this book and you will be in a much more informed position to answer these questions for yourself.”

-Robert Steven Thomas, author of “Intelligent Intervention: The Missing Link in the History of Human Evolution.”

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.” 

George Noory, National Talk Show Host, Coast To Coast AM

The Complete Guide to Maverick Podcasting… can walk you through the process of becoming a podcaster, and all without having to go bankrupt or insane.”

–Jim Harold, The Paranormal Podcast, Jim Harold’s Campfire

“This book is a million Gigabytes of information! Micah is wired and podcasting straight to your mind with warp speed. Entertaining and unconventional.”

–Tom Danheiser, Senior Producer, Coast to Coast AM


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?


The UFO Singularity

by Micah Hanks


Throughout the history of serious studies that look carefully at the UFO phenomenon, our best analysis of the mystery seems to have only led to more questions. Do UFOs represent visitors from other worlds? If not extraterrestrial, what else could such technology represent in our midst, and are there other possibilities that are truly worth considering?

The UFO Singularity finally reveals what UFO phenomena can tell us about greater-than-human intelligence, and offers provocative theories of where such intelligence might originate. You’ll explore the most challenging metaphysical questions and the latest scientific thoughts about them, including:

* What is the singularity, and how does it relate to UFOs?

* Could some UFOs be from our plane? Could they actually be time travelers from our future?

* What current scientific trends are leading us to the kinds of advanced technology we’ve observed in various UFO reports?

* Are there other ways in which UFOs could be considered “extraterrestrial visitors” in our midst, even if they didn’t get here in the way that most people think (via interplanetary space flight)?

“At the forefront of a new generation of UFOlogists, Micah Hanks is someone who isn’t afraid to tackle new paradigms, ideas, and theories. The future of flying saucer seeking is in good hands!”
Nick Redfern, author of “The NASA Conspiracies

“Micah Hanks is an invaluable source of data, esoterica, and intellectual banter.”
Scott Alan Roberts, author of “The Rise and Fall of the Nephilim


Reynolds Mansion: An Invitation to the Past

And here, one man’s hopeful attempts at unraveling the mansion’s many mysteries will reveal parts of its incredible story that have remained obscured for decades… until now.
