Have you ever been thinking about someone, and then seconds later they called you? Have you ever had anxiety or a feeling about something bad occurring and then it did? Have you ever felt like someone is watching you but you don’t know why?


The very nature of human consciousness is complicated and misunderstood using traditional science. On today’s show, we’re diving into the science behind the nature of consciousness, the brain, and anomalies in our understanding of materialism. This show challenges you to be curious before you’re critical, a valuable perspective to have in any field of study. 


Today’s guest, Mark Gober is the author behind the revolutionary book, An End to Upside Down Thinking. Mark dives into the extraordinary evidence behind human perception, awareness, and seemingly impossible ESP abilities. As a former behavioral economics student at Princeton, his research in quantum physics and the nature of consciousness shakes our traditional view of materialism. This podcast and book will challenge you to rethink your outlook about existence, your identity, and overall worldview.
