I’m delighted to announce that the Mind Control episode in which I talk about quantum jumping on William Shatner’s Weird or What aired on Canada’s History channel August 14th, 2012. You may be able to view this episode now, if you live in Canada, through the History channel web site.
The synopsis for Weird or What: Mind Control reads: Three spine-tingling stories about mind-control: a man with a mysterious implant believes aliens have been monitoring his every move; a séance turns a housewife into a literary genius; and, a California woman suspects she is the target of a sinister government experiment.
All three segments on the Mind Control episode are fascinating, as they raise pertinent questions regarding how we interpret unusual situations and experiences. I love William Shatner’s playful sense of humor that provides just the right comic interlude between serious investigations into mysterious phenomena.
I was interviewed for the segment investigating the amazing true story of how Pearl Curran, an uneducated housewife, wrote detailed and accurate accounts of places she could not have known about which she published under the name, Patience Worth. These books were remarkable for how well they were received by literary critics and the general public, and indeed many of these books, such as The Sorry Tale are still in print and remarkably popular.
When I first heard how Pearl Curran had initially connected with Patience Worth in 1913 through an Ouija board, I was especially intrigued by the fact that as Patience Worth, Pearl’s vocabulary and diction were thoroughly transformed from her ordinary manner of speech. Curran’s vocabulary was not consistently of any one historical period, but rather moved through many times. Even more astounding was the report of the first-person account of the sights, smells and sounds of many ancient places in Oriental marketplaces, wildernesses, Roman palaces, and halls of justice in The Sorry Tale about Jesus Christ’s last days. The detail in this descriptive narrative was so comprehensive and complete that many reviewers marveled that no other written account gave as clear a view of customs, manners, and character of people at that time.
The theory that I presented in the Weird or What: Mind Control episode about Pearl Curran is that Pearl Curran jumped back through space and time to live the experiences of Patience Worth, encountering various events in Worth’s life and traveling through time and space back to the first century A.D. where she conveyed in emotionally evocative detail a full-sensory first-hand account of an assortment of everyday and historically famous events. Worth’s book The Sorry Tale was written the way an observer would describe people, places and things of the time – as one who was literally there.
While we don’t have much information about Patience, it’s obvious from Pearl’s limited travel experiences and educational background that something extraordinary happened to allow her to so effortlessly generate a rich body of literature from other eras. A requirement for quantum jumping is that a kind of bridge from one time and place to another be established. Clearly, Pearl felt motivated to make a connection to someone from another reality … from another place and time. Even though we haven’t yet been able to verify the identity of Patience Worth, we can sense her humanity, passion, and inspiration through her words. The fact that this information was transmitted across hundreds of years of time and thousands of miles through space provides us with a clear sense that Curran made a quantum jump that bridged completely separate worlds.
An Ouija board provided Pearl Curran with a method for attaining the requisite meditative state of mind for establishing and maintaining a connection with another world, place and time. When Curran felt a visceral connection with a witty, wise woman from the 17th century, Patience Worth, she was entering an alternate world – experiencing an alternate place and time. She thus experienced this other woman as another self living in a uniquely different place and time.
How Quantum Jumping Works
Quantum jumping can be envisioned as occurring in a multi-verse of many alternate realities, in which each one of these realities exists another possible “you” that you are connected to. Just as electrons can make leaps from one energetic level to another, people can quantum jump through alternate realities to experience dramatic shifts in physical reality.
• On the atomic level, a quantum jump or quantum leap is the change of an electron from one state to another within an atom. When quantum particles make such leaps, they’ve been observed in the laboratory to literally disappear and reappear in another location.
• Entangled quantum particles move in simultaneous synchronization across great distances.
• According to the “many worlds” interpretation of quantum physics, there are an infinite number of alternative realities existing alongside our own universe, in such a way that all possibilities exist, and movements of quantum particles can be determined in terms of probabilities.
• Physicist John Cramer’s “transactional interpretation” of quantum physics gives us a model by which we can expect communication forward and backward through time, with a kind of handshake.
Quantum Jumping Time Travel
Usually when people think about time travel, they imagine one steady timeline of events that unfolds from a definite beginning and traceable past, to some unknown future. While it’s possible to travel through time through quantum jumping, the difference is that there are many possible pasts, as well as many possible futures … and also many possible “nows.”
Quantum jumping can be regarded as time travel, in the sense that one proceeds by jumping to an alternate reality – by establishing a connection with another place and time. The best way to envision time travel is to imagine space and time always existing together. Physicists consider space and time to be inextricably connected, so one cannot exist without the other. You can think of spacetime as being a lot like a fabric that can ripple, warp and bend. Spacetime consists of three spatial dimensions and one dimension of time, and it describes four-dimensional space as gravitational curves whose points represent events.
Physicist pioneers currently working toward establishing a Theory of Everything believe our universe most likely consists of many more than just three dimensions of space and one of time, and that many more dimensions exist alongside those four inside us, curled up.
In quantum jumping, the past one visits is one of many possible pasts, rather than the only past at a particular point in space and time. These many pasts exist in the same way that at this moment right now there are many possible concurrent realities.
There have been recent successful studies demonstrating macro-level quantum behaviors occurring above the quantum scale, meaning that some of what Albert Einstein once called “spooky action at a distance” is now being witnessed in scientific laboratories. Quantum particles are capable of being entangled in such a way that they move in tandem even across great distances – and recently, physicists in Oxford, England have demonstrated long-range entanglement of small diamonds at room temperature across a distance of 15 cm.
Now that quantum theory is being shown to apply to macroscopic objects, we are re-evaluating the entire way we view how the world is constituted. It’s one thing to see a quantum particle disappear in one place and reappear somewhere else as it makes a quantum jump, and quite another thing to acknowledge such jumps are also possible for people to experience on the macro scale.
Everyday Examples of Quantum Jumping
Anyone who can relax, clear their mind, and envision being different in some way – such as more successful, funny, healthy, wealthy or wise – can quantum jump. When making these kinds of quantum jumps, one can feel immediate benefits from such positive thinking.
Quantum jumps are relatively common, though most involve small changes and jumps through space and time. While anyone is capable of quantum jumping, and most of us have made quantum jumps, these jumps often go unnoticed because they’re not enormous leaps from one possible reality to another – they involve something as small as keys or socks vanishing in one place and reappearing in another, or feeling suddenly more confident. Any time you’ve talked yourself into something by overcoming negative self-talk with positive suggestions, and noticed you suddenly had a great deal more success, you may have experienced a quantum jump.
While anyone can quantum jump, it’s unlikely most people would experience such a radical jump as Pearl Curran that so thoroughly transformed her literary skills that her writing was and still is considered some of the best prose ever penned.
Pearl Curran’s Quantum Jumps
Pearl truly desired to make a connection with another reality, and found a way to relax with an open mind and experience alternate realities via the meditative, relaxing yet energizing usage of an Ouija board. The Ouija board acted as a kind of bridge or doorway which allowed Pearl to make a huge leap into an alternate space and time.
Pearl had such a strong desire to experience a radically different reality than the one she’d been living prior to connecting with Patience Worth, and her ability to hold a clear vision of Patience Worth made this connection as long-lasting and remarkable as it was.

Quantum jumping provides another great opportunity to ask my favorite question, “How good can it get?!” and make good use of whatever wonderful things imagination and inspiration reveal to you!

I’ve been fortunate to have had numerous unusual experiences involving time in my life. One of the most extraordinary occurred on a seemingly ordinary day in August 1998.
My daughter and I were waiting for our friend to visit us at our home, and the front door of the house was open as my daughter saw him arrive, pulling into the driveway. I could hear the sound of a car’s tires crunching on loose gravel in our asphalt driveway, and I heard my daughter call his name out to me, shouting that he was here. A few minutes passed, and I again heard the sound of a car’s tires crunching across gravel in the driveway, and my daughter’s voice yelling, “WAIT! Why are you going?!”
My daughter later told me he said something to her that she couldn’t quite hear, and then drove away. From where I was inside our house, I clearly hard a car pull into the driveway, and drive away a few minutes later as my daughter called out.
About ten minutes later, our friend returned in a completely different car, with his two children.
Now that our friend had arrived at our house (this time with his children) and appeared able to stay for a while, my daughter came to talk to me. I could see that she was deeply troubled by something, so I asked her what was wrong. She asked me, “Why did he drive away?” I replied that I had no idea. Perhaps there had been some problem with his children, and he’d decided to talk with them privately. My daughter instantly commented, “But the kids weren’t even in the car the first time… and it was a different car.”
I brought my daughter to talk to my friend about this, and he was quite intrigued. He explained, “I once drove here by myself in the other car. I had been wishing to see you and wishing I could be here when you were here… especially your daughter, and her implacable, unbeatable, ungovernable love. She goes right to my heart.”
My daughter told our friend he’d said something to her she couldn’t quite understand as he spoke directly to her, as if he could see her… but he drove away anyway. Our friend told us that he’d sensed someone’s presence as he was thinking of my daughter, and had spoken aloud his wish to see us when we were home. My daughter said that even though she didn’t know what our friend had said, he had obviously been talking directly to her.
I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed another kind of reality shift… a time travel variety of reality shift, in which our friend had somehow successfully held a conversation from the past into the future with my daughter, and that they had both sensed one another’s presence.
I am intrigued to note that while my daughter was able to clearly see our friend, he merely sensed my daughter’s presence. Perhaps this might be because my eight-year-old daughter’s beginner’s mind better allowed her to see what adults would tend to assume could not be happening. Due to our friend’s desire to be here and our desire to see him, he actually arrived from the past into our present (his future), and for a brief time they held a conversation together.
I share some thoughts and feelings about this time travel reality shift in this video:
As people increasingly experience more reality shifts, thanks to more people meditating and following spiritual paths than ever before, time travel shifts such as this one may become commonplace.
