UFOs and Consciousness, Part II:
Fantastic Facts About UFOs, Altered States of Consciousness, and Mind-at-Large
Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Sponsored by the Anomaly Archives, INACS, and Austin-IONS
In a sequel to his 2011 presentation for INACS on UFOs and consciousness, SMiles Lewis will explore "close encounters" and "alien abductions" with an eye toward an interpretation of these events as a transpersonal, inter-species, virtual-reality communications mechanism using out-of-body-like altered states of consciousness. Lewis will speculate on the nature and meaning of these experiences and on the potential manipulation of these phenomena by "alien" and human agencies for parapolitical purposes. Drawing on both witness testimony and the work of the world's leading UFO researchers, he will discuss possible intelligences (human and otherwise) behind the UFO phenomenon which have the apparent ability to manipulate belief systems, consciousness, space-time, and what some might term the "soul."
Stephen Miles "SMiles" Lewis is an audio production administrator for the Texas State Library Talking Book Program. He is also the founding president of the Scientific Anomaly Institute, vice president and a trustee of the Institute for Neuroscience and Consciousness Studies, a past state section director for the Travis and Williamson County chapters of the Mutual UFO Network, and the Web designer and print publisher of E.L.F. Infested Spaces -- Journal of Possible Paradigms. Lewis served as facilitator for Austin's UFO Experiencer Support Group for nearly ten years and has been interviewed by local and national radio, television, and print media. In 1995 Lewis spoke at the annual conference of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness on the subject of UFOs as a transformative paradigm. His interests in both the physical and folkloric research of parapsychology and ufology have led to his collecting and archiving of over 3000 books on these and other topics relevant to consciousness research and to the founding of the Anomaly Archives lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute.

"Now, if you have or had one of these plans before the Affordable Care Act came into law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you can keep it if it hasn’t changed since the law passed. So we wrote into the Affordable Care Act, you're grandfathered in on that plan. But if the insurance company changes it, then what we're saying is they've got to change it to a higher standard. They've got to make it better, they've got to improve the quality of the plan they are selling. That's part of the promise that we made too. That's why we went out of our way to make sure that the law allowed for grandfathering. If we had allowed these old plans to be downgraded, or sold to new enrollees once the law had already passed, then we would have broken an even more important promise -- making sure Americans gain access to health care that doesn't leave them one illness away from financial ruin. The bottom line is that we are making the insurance market better for everybody and that's the right thing to do."
