Cognitive Rampage #215: Tony Wright
Tony Wright has been developing a theory explaining why our distant ancestors evolved an incredibly rare symbiotic brain that exhibited exceptional abilities, extraordinary perception and a sense of self the lies almost beyond our current comprehension. The same theory presents a clear diagnosis as to why our symbiotic brain has quite literally been eroding away with its associated traits and abilities having virtually disappeared.

Finally and most importantly, if the above diagnosis is accurate, it offers a powerful combination of treatments that can begin to quickly restore the kind of abilities and sense of self alluded to in ancient mythological and spiritual traditions.If the theory is valid and the project is successful it will have a huge impact on how we as a species perceive ourselves and respond to the

The Cognitive Rampage Podcast #155: Author Johnjoe McFadden
The Cognitive Rampage Podcast #155: Author Johnjoe McFadden Author of "Life On The Edge" Life is the most extraordinary phenomenon in the known universe; but how does it work? Even in this age of cloning and synthetic biology, the remarkable truth remains: nobody has ever made anything living entirely out of dead material. Life remains the only way to make life. Are we missing a vital ingredient in its creation? Like Richard Dawkins' The Selfish Gene, which provided a new perspective on evolution, Life on the Edge alters our understanding of life's dynamics as Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe Macfadden reveal the hitherto missing ingredient to be quantum mechanics. Drawing on recent ground-breaking experiments around the world, they show how photosynthesis relies on subatomic particles existing in many places at once, while inside enzymes, those workhorses of life that make every molecule within our cells, particles vanish from one point in space and instantly materialize in another.

TCR #124: Dan Cleland
The Cognitive Rampage Podcast #124: Dan Cleland (Founder, Trip Leader) Dan Cleland Author of Pulse Of The Jungle and Founder of Pulse Tours - Ayahuasca Adventure Center Over 10 years ago, a young man from Walkerton, Ontario, Canada had a recurring dream to explore the world. The day to day cage of 9-5 was not big enough to contain this young adventurer. He began to research the great land of sandy beaches, cheap beer and groovy vibes … Brazil. After learning some Portuguese, buying some maps of Brazil and maxing out his credit at the bank, Daniel Cleland ventured off on an independently organized six week journey through Brazil. The minute he arrived to his hostel in Copacabana, he dropped his bags and B-lined straight to the beach … the first time this land-locked boy had seen the ocean in years. As his eyes feasted on the glorious expanse of Copacabana beach, Daniel knew that dreams were just reality waiting to happen. His life had taken a turn, and the rest of his six week adventure would define the next decade of his life. Upon returning the 9-5 grind in Canada after his six week sojourn in the land of samba and caipirinhas, the only thought in Daniel’s mind was “how do I get back there?” Within a month, he’d located a job in international tourism and began to work his way back down to the promised land. Working for a major international travel company, Daniel spent the next years leading adventures all across Central and South America, where he learned how to communicate like a pro in Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, and how to show people the gems of this awe-inspiring continent. Never being one to play by anyone else’ rules, Daniel began to do his own thing and create itineraries to South America for family and friends. Now, Pulse Adventure Tours has become a live and thriving entity, with a growing culture of awesome people’s support! Traveling the world has also inspired Daniel to enroll in a Master of Arts degree in Intercultural and International Communication, from which he is graduating in 2014. Familiarity with this field of study helps Pulse Adventure Tours build strong intercultural bridges between our travelers and the locals we encounter along the way. Many of our travelers experience a whole new world which they return to independently in the future.

Dr. Stanton Peele's has 40-Years in the research, study, treatment, authorship, speaking and everything else Addiction Stanton began working on Love and Addiction (which was published in 1975) in 1970. In these forty years he has predicted a remarkable number of addiction trends. By now it is clear that the way in which Stanton has reframed addiction for the past four decades – sometimes facing extreme opposition – has been prescient. Addiction is not a consequence of taking drugs and drinking. Rather, it arises from the way in which these and other compelling activities fit into people’s lives and meanings. We are only now as a society beginning to come to grips with his insights.

I cover the locus to human, human to locus evolution. I talk about how I react to people saying "Something is coming, I can feel it. Something is about to go down, blah blah." I tell you what they are really feeling and why it's not happening. Somehow I get onto politics, war, corruption for awhile, hurricane rituals and response, more music talk, how I got dubbed being able to reach the so called "worse of the worse", I give some love to The Tribe of Change and what we are, being a lone wolf, I define courage and bravery, how the point is to keep us divided and fighting each other, I break down nationalism, power, enforcing beliefs onto others, weather men and women always getting it wrong and hit with stop signs, robot news anchors mental health realities, then i start inviting random contacts by email to join the podcast and Mr. Fit Project Media Brett Richard aka CM Punk gets woken up by me and answers while sleeping LIVE!

TCR #59: Dr. Joan Collins
We are talking addiction recovery. Hold on tight. Are they just treating symptoms and keeping your sick-fat-depressed-and polluted? As you know this is one of my activist missions here at the TCR. We talk disease or not disease? Is addiction just a symptom of the biological reasons? Rehab return rates and recovery percentages. We talk current approach issues, holistic approaches, scientific research, statistics, stories and experiences. Dr. Joan Collins is on the same mission---TO SAVE LIVES! A revolution needs to happen in addiction treatment and she is helping pioneer the way. As always I left my cognitive rampage loose -once during the show, but as always the sign off cognitive rampage sums it up.
