InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he discusses the maxim that everything is more meaningful the closer one is to god. He relates this to his Jewish background and the feeling of many Jews of having been abandoned by the deity in their hour of need — the holocaust. He introduces the work of Victor Frankl, the founder of logo therapy. He also discusses research suggesting that individuals reporting subjective psychic experiences often have painful childhoods.
