Mark Gober is the author of the recently released book An End to Upside Down Thinking: Dispelling the Myth That the Brain Produces Consciousness and the Implications for Everyday Life. Mark is a Partner at Sherpa Technology Group in Silicon Valley, a former New York investment banker, and former Princeton University tennis team captain. Highlights: Mark shares how listening to a podcast about non-linear realities inspired him to spend a year studying the topic. Our consciousness is not localized to our body. He has been sharing what he learned with others and has been getting a lot of positive feedback, which led to his writing the book. Mark talks about what he thinks is upside down thinking and how materialism is not the only way to see things. Materialism says that matter creates consciousness through the brain. Mark says consciousness comes first and everything else follows. We talk about time being not linear. It’s impossible for us to define anything that exists beyond 3-dimensional reality. The brain is actually a filtering mechanism for that which exists beyond us. Talks about how he has learned to trust his intuition. Logic and reasoning are not helpful all of the time. People are not, fundamentally separate. There is an interconnectedness among all beings. Mark talks about the CIA Remote Viewing program. The number of synchronicities that happen is beyond coincidence. Mark believes that the information he presents has the potential to change people’s lives. We have to incorporate the mind into how we deal with our bodies. The aims of business might shift as people realize that we all connected and they accept a different view of reality. The idea that we are individuals who are not connected is a problem. Links: Mark’s site: Mark’s book: The End to Upside Down Thinking
