Sacred Sites as Portals of Time and Triggers of Transformations of Consciousness
By Mark A. Schroll, Ph.D.

1.   My most complete examination of Bohm's work is in (Schroll, 1997).  See also my brief comments on Bohm in (Krippner & Schroll, 2011; Schroll, 2010c).

2.   Those of us that are interested in finding a physical basis of psi dreaming and inter-species communication, see Schroll, 2009, 2010b; Sheldrake, 2010.  Bringing the work of Sheldrake and John Lilly together is something that would facilitate this inquiry (Schroll, 2010a, 2010c, 2011).

3.   See Briggs & Peat, 1984; Sheldrake, 1984a, 1984b, 1985, 1988a, 1988b, 1990, 1994; Shekdrake & Bohm, 1982; Sheldrake & Fox, 1993; Sheldrake & Weber, 1982.
