A Greater Reality: The New Paradigm of Non-local Consciousness, the Paranormal and the Contact Modalities
A GREATER REALITY: The New Paradigm of Non-local Consciousness, the Paranormal and the Contact Modalities (3 book series) by Reinerio Hernandez (Author), Michael Grosso (Author), Jon Klimo (Author) and 4 more
A GREATER REALITY is a 5-volume book series that aims to articulate a new paradigm that seeks to integrate the findings of consciousness research and the phenomenology of extraordinary experiences, what we at the Consciousness and Contact Research Institute (CCRI) call the Contact Modalities. CCRI is an academic research institute committed to an integrative approach to the entire spectrum of psychophysical anomalies. Members include professionals in the fields of Astrophysics, Theoretical Physics, Philosophy, Psychiatry, Psychology, Neuroscience, Sociology, Quantum Biology, Information Sciences, Parapsychology, and Medical Doctors. The five co-editors of the 5-volume book series, A Greater Reality, are Harvard Astrophysicist Dr. Rudy Schild, Medical Doctor and noted NDE researcher, Dr. Jeffrey Long, Reinerio (Rey) Hernandez, an attorney, and Ph.D. Candidate at UC Berkeley, Dr. Jon Klimo, a retired professor of Psychology and Ph.D. from Brown University, and Dr. Michael Grosso, a retired professor of Philosophy and Ph.D. from Columbia University.
THE CONTACT MODALITIES are all the diverse ways humans are piercing the veil of our multidimensional reality and having contact with Non-Human Intelligence. The evidence for various types of extraordinary experiences suggests that humans may be in contact with higher forms of intelligence. The Contact Modalities are Near Death Experiences (NDEs), Out of Body Experiences (OBEs), Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP/UFOs), Spirit/Ghost Apparitions, Remote Viewing, Hallucinogenic/Psychedelic Experiences, Channeling, Post-Death Communications, Mystical Meditation, Lucid Dreams, Human Initiated Contact Experiences (HICE) and various other forms of altered states of consciousness that allow us to be in contact with transcendent realities.
CONSCIOUSNESS IS FUNDAMENTAL. CCRI argues that mind and consciousness are fundamental and non-local, and that matter, energy, and information are ultimately grounded in one mind and consciousness. We argue that “Consciousness is Fundamental and that our physical world is a manifestation of consciousness and not our physical reality” — the philosophical position that the only thing that exists is consciousness. We hypothesize that all of the Contact Modalities are interrelated via a manipulation of space-time and by definition might be interdimensional in nature.
ONE PHENOMENON. We argue that there is a range of states of consciousness, the Contact Modalities, where we can access both non-physical and physical realms and interact with perceived higher forms of intelligence via our ordinary senses. For all of these reasons, we assert that the Contact Modalities need to be studied as one phenomenon– as manifestations of a single greater source of mind and consciousness.
Volumes 1 & 2 will be our theoretical volumes and will feature articles by Ph.D. academics, medical doctors and researchers who have focused on researching the connection between Consciousness and the Contact Modalities. Volumes 3 & 4 will feature articles by individuals who have had many diverse contact experiences with the Greater Reality. The Introduction to A Greater Reality, titled THE MIND OF GOD, will be our 5th book and is useful for those that do not have time to read the 2,500 pages contained in volumes 1-4 of A Greater Reality.
