These are a lot of my deeper thoughts and crazy ideas. In here you’ll find discussions and rants about God, the nature of time, theories on relativity, physics, memory, and all the wacky ideas I have. There’s very little science involved, unless you count fringe-science. It’s meant to be fun, and good place to get your mind to stretch a little. So, if you enjoy a good mind-bending, soul stretching experience, this is the podcast for you!

1. Off The Deep End with Sean (#1). Where are memories stored?

This is the first in a new series I’m calling, “Off the Deep End with Sean”. Crazy ideas, no holds barred. It gets a little nuts. Have fun!

In this one, I rant about my extra crazy hypothesis about where memories are stored and what implications that could have for the world. It’s fun. I think. You’ll enjoy it. I hope. Yeah. Check it out?

2. Off The Deep End with Sean (#2). What is God?

So, Sean goes all the way off the deep end with this episode. I mean, why not, right? It’s called, Off the Deep End. Why not just tackle the concept of God right at the beginning? 

Fair warning: if you’re a religious person, or if you’re a committed atheist, or if you really don’t like having your mind expanded too much, it’s best to stay away from this one. There’s a lot of information packed in here with a lot of implications. Tread lightly. 

But have fun!

3. Off The Deep End with Sean (#3). Us Power or Use Force?

Dr. David Hawkins, in his book Power vs. Force, talks about the difference between the two. In this podcast, Sean unpacks what he’s learned about this valuable distinction.

With all the commotion going on in the world, this seems appropriate. You see, there are right ways and wrong ways to do things. Charging at a problem and being full of rage, anger, hatred, shame, bitterness, or any other negative emotion is a wrong way. Thinking deeply about a problem, considering it with genuine love, acting through that space, and putting concrete plans into place, is a right way.   

4. Off The Deep End With Sean (#4). Understanding Truth.

Of course, I’m going to tackle something as huge as understanding Truth! Would you expect anything less from your favorite podcaster?

In my view, understanding what Truth is, is a fundamental part of sustaining a functional society. I believe it gives people something tangible to hold on to, and, more than that, tends to help people view the world with more compassion and understanding.

If you’d like to know more about the subject, you can read about it in Truth vs. Falsehood by Dr. David Hawkins.

5. Off the Deep End With Sean (#5) Light, Gravity & Time

Aug 24th, 2019 by Sean Murock Talks

This is, by far, my craziest idea so far. It came to me in a flash, and I have no idea if it’s true. If it is, it could unlock a lot of different things. 

What would happen if light actually was the cause of gravity, and consequently the cause of time, and it all happened at the quantum level? I think that’s what’s going on. This podcast is a bit of a brain-bender where I take fringe-science, metaphysics, and mix it all together in a hard-to-swallow soup. I think you’ll really like it.

WHY I DON’T IDENTIFY AS WHITE. OFF THE DEEP END (#6)

Disclaimer: If you’re easily offended, or don’t fully understand my perspectives on these things, please skip this one. 

I have an idea I’m trying to work out. It goes something like this: culturally in the West, white represents purity and goodness while black represents deceit and evil. I’ve struggled for a long time with identifying as White because I don’t like the way it feels – it doesn’t feel true because I know my own heart, while a lot of people I know who identify as Black are far better people than I am. I believe it’s time to get rid of these labels and get real about what we are – human. 

I also tackle an idea about the divisive representation of the rainbow. I do realize this is a delicate subject so I try to handle it carefully. But I’ll let you decide. 

After I listened to this, I realized that I didn’t make my argument very well, so if you get to the end and you’re scratching your head, or you think I’m some sort of monster, please listen to the follow up podcast titled about what I think I got wrong. I do a much better job of wrapping these two ideas together. 

I’ll admit I thought about pulling this podcast, but I stand by everything I said. For the moment, this is how I see things, and what I’m struggling to resolve in my own mind. Granted, I didn’t make the argument as well as I could have, but I think it’s worth keeping on line for now because it’s thought provoking if nothing else. 

All my best. 

Sean. 

WHAT I WAS TRYING TO SAY. OFF THE DEEP END (#7)

Um…Yeah…I went there. Please let me clarify. 

After listening to that previous episode, I realized I may have inadvertently made an argument for the supremacy of White culture. In fact, you’d have to pay pretty careful attention to the nuances to take it any other way. 

If you know me, you’ll know that I would never make that argument, because it’s counter to everything I believe. But I did a poor job of connecting two seemingly unconnected ideas (it’s one of the hazards of thinking out loud).

In this episode I try to clarify what I was talking about, drill a little deeper on some of the ideas originally presented, and tie them together much better. I’m fairly sure a lot of people will still disapprove, but that’s the world I live in, so go for it. Just keep in mind that this is meant to stimulate conversations and ideas, not anger or dissent. 

Don’t be afraid to think more broadly. 

More than that, don’t ever let perfection be the enemy of progress. 

All my best. 

Sean.  

ARE WE BECOMING SOMETHING ELSE? OFF THE DEEP END (#8)

Does the current state of the world worry you? It worries me. But I have a unique perspective that helps me see it all in a different light. 

I keep going back to the old precept of “that which is below is like that which is above, and that which is above is like that which is below”. It makes me wonder if the things we’re seeing in the world aren’t in line with that observation. 

I read a scientific study years ago that part of the reason a woman goes into labor is that the child is taking up too much space and consuming too many resources. The child needs to much oxygen and calories to sustain its rapid growth, that the woman’s body simply can’t keep up. I’ve scoured the internet looking for that research, but can’t locate it. If you find it, please let me know.
