Evidence for Life After Death. Bigelow Essay contest of 2021, Interview with Runner-up Michael Tymn

“Your world must realize that revelation is continuous and progressive, fitting itself to the stage of understanding to the people to whom it comes.”Silver Birch

In the podcast archives, my interview with Michael Tymn. I have followed his blog for a few years and appreciate the tremendous amount of research he has done over the past couple of decades.

He clarified for me that he is not a scientist, academician or researcher, per se, and says his interest in psychical research is as a historian. His primary efforts in this regard over the past 20 years has been to make the old research – between 1850 and 1930 – known to the public.

I managed to catch him on a good day. He agreed to a rare interview.

My podcasts are available where ever you prefer to listen.

Mike was one of the runner-ups, awarded a $50,000 prize, in the Bigelow Essay contest of 2021, on the subject of evidence for life after death. His essay is available to read here. Link. Info on the most recent contest. Link.

Michael’s Question: “Is finding evidence of life on another planet more important than finding evidence of life after death?”

Bio: Michael Tymn (Tim), a retired insurance claims manager, has been a freelance writer for nearly 70 years. He has written more than 2,000 articles for more than 50 newspapers, magazines, and journals. He is the author of several books, including The Afterlife Revealed: What Happens After We Die.

In his essay, “Long Concealed, Now Revealed – Overwhelming Evidence for Life After Death,” Tymn asserts that there is overwhelming evidence for life after death, citing the work of early psychical researchers, such as Sir William Crookes, Sir Oliver Lodge, Governor Nathaniel P. Tallmadge and Professor Hare, who conducted experiments with mediums that produced evidence of spirit communication.

Example: Witness: Governor Nathaniel P. Tallmadge. With another medium, Calhoun asked Tallmadge to bring a guitar to their next meeting. He did so and placed it on a drawer, no one touching it. Tallmadge testified: “The guitar was touched softly and gently, and gave forth sweet and delicious sounds, like the accompaniment to a beautiful and exquisite piece of music. It then played a sort of symphony, in much louder and bolder tones. P 14.

In other works, Tymn also discusses the work of contemporary researchers, such as Dr. Raymond Moody and Dr. Bruce Greyson, who have studied near-death experiences and past-life memories. Tymn concludes that the evidence for life after death is overwhelming and it can help us to live our lives with more purpose and meaning.

Interview Footnote: Yes, there is an anomaly. I left it in. This is the second time in a month that I have noticed an EVP in the audio. Unfortunately, this EVP is not quite as distinct as the previous one. However, I am going to start paying closer attention to see if this is becoming a pattern.

Correction on the time of the anomaly: Apparently – with the commercials added on their end – the time for the anomaly is 42:38. At 42:09 – I ask, ‘what was it like to win the contest…’ The place to listen is when he says = “I wasn’t doing it for the money, I was just hoping that … you know.” =  this is where the other voice can be heard…. very quick.

The words I can make out are “he got” … There is a 3rd word but that is unclear to me. If you are interested, I can amplify it a bit more. I did keep a copy of that segment. Make a request and I can post it in the comments.

Consciousness beyond physical embodiment

Here is a short video example of my interactive nightlight. (I channel and this is the counterpart of that.) Activity has been ongoing for 25 years. The frequency is now more intermittent as there is an intentional effort by ‘the Energy’ to maintain the life of the bulb.

So – when it does this overt interaction – it reminds me of the first two decades when the activity was more common. I will clean the power strip – eventually. For now – it adds character.

A recent burst of life. 3.27.23 and then back to silent mode. (Off.)

What is more important to me is that it continues. I find it fascinating to have been able to have this interaction continue for decades now – when I initially expected it to stop at any moment.

Beyond what we think we know – we are surrounded by unknown wonders. Normal? Paranormal? Supra-normal?

Unexplained. I hesitate applying a name or label because I think we have more to learn about what is possible. As we evolve our awareness, we will discover some of our experiences and encounters have been mislabeled, misinterpreted, and, as a result, entirely misunderstood.
