No spooks or paranormal military organizations associate with Rainsong. She is not a military-trained psychic “technician.” She is not, nor has she ever been, a lab rat. She is not even a good telepath because she was unable to discern who was behind many different screen names. She is a secretary. More specifically, she is an administrative secretary for a university and a copywriter. I am not quite sure why she lies, considering that she is associated with academic research in holistic medicine, and she played an integral role in book research and book editing for the head professor for her department. On its own, those are things to be proud of. Here is the kicker, however. Her motivations are somewhat political. She is opposed to “Big Pharma.”
Rainsong is the administrative secretary of a Bioethics department. The majority of the professors in that department research things like egalitarian healthcare. Considering my job, I ran across her name in a publication while looking at books and articles. For ethical and legal reasons, I am not going to reveal who she works for or where she works. The ethos of the professors’ work in her department is to expand and promote equal healthcare across social classes and rural areas. Reliable holistic alternatives would make it so that people could avoid the price tag on their medicines. There is no problem with that, but there is a problem with Rainsong. There is a little difference between no health care and alternative energy healing methods that provide a marginal effect just above no health care. Since day one, my problem with Psionic Social Club is that the administrators and moderators preferred to attach an energetic cause and treatment for everything. Inductively, conventionally medical and physiological reasons and paradigms have a higher rate of working, so they should be tried first. And then if they do not work, an alternative course of treatment can pragmatically be applied. One would think an EMT and someone who works with Biology professors would abide by those ethics. Nope! ShadowRain wanted to apply energy healing to everything and Rainsong was complicit. It provides people with hope and emotional comfort; however, it is practically the same as offering them no health care. Rainsong seems to have the idea that energy healing techniques that do not work reliably are better than no health care at all. I looked at the research her academic research is endorsing. It is pretty interesting and relevant. Rainsong, however, takes several turns and ends up in crazy land somehow.
Speaking with her over the years, I decided to be cognitively dissonant. One of my issues growing up is that people fell in three camps concerning my psychic abilities. They saw them in person and were scared or envious of me. When I asked people for help, they did not believe me until I showed them, which placed them in category one or they sought to use me. Since I know I have psychic abilities, I tend to regard other people’s claims as “good faith” claims because I know what it is like to have little help. It turns out that psychic abilities run in my family, and my own mother knew what was going on because she had them, too, but that is a whole other can of worms that I will address later. Maybe.
Many of Rainsong’s stories are inconsistent. For example, she will claim that she can reknit bones; however, she has damaged lungs and brain damage from a stroke. I am not quite sure if the stroke has any impact on why she says what she does. Maybe she is using psionics as a proxy for real-life trauma? Maybe the brain damage creates a schizotypical state? Maybe she is just lying? I cannot tell if she is lying or if she is deluded. I think it is highly likely she is not telling the truth. There are many health complications she and her family have had over the years. If her healing abilities worked or if what she is selling people worked, why why is she unable to use them on herself? She has a body that is practically made of glass, yet we are supposed to take for granted that she can do things such as heal cancer, heal tissue damage, and fix bones though she cannot do that on herself or the people she loves?
I recently caught her in a lie concerning Sean Connelly, aka Peebrain. In A Little Weird, Peebrain explicitly stated that he was officially taking down his blog and the archived version of PsiPog because after experimental trials he set up, specifically OBE tests, he did not have any evidence for what he was experiencing being psychic in nature. When I decided to look him up, Sean Connley turns out to be a Software Developer who is skeptical of anything psychic and is a hard and fast believer in scientific realism. For Seans thoughts in his own words see Whatever Happened to that Telekinesis Guy? and Sean.cm.
That is not so, according to Rainsong and Keith Miller. Their side of the tale is he quit psionics to join the NSA and that he did perform psychokinesis, and he probably said he did not because he joined the NSA, became a spook, and there is a conspiracy afoot. Rainsong literally did not deny what Sean said; however, she said she did not know why he said he did not have any evidence for the things claimed in PsiPog. We know exactly why he said what he said. He did not experience anything he would say is psychic out of his own mouth. Well, this is out of Keith’s mouth at Turtles and Crows and Psionic Social Club:
Peebrain moved on with his life and out of psionics generally. Rainsong’s small group can still be found by people who remember it or know where to look. Most of the core of Pog left the OEC generally some time ago. I’m not sure if there are any IRCs for psionics out there of much repute anymore…
…I do but I don’t know if they are like super open or not, were you from around during the Pog era? I can pass your handle on to Rainsong and see if I can pass the IRC details on.
Rainsong has been working in that position for years, but she told me that she recently had to be transferred because “spooks” also called her handlers had found her, and she was expecting to be called into action as a psionic assassin. Because of that, she claimed she had to be transferred. See this screenshot:
To give the conversation context, I have electronic switches based on the same technology that PEARS used for Micro-PK test. I also have a background in engineering, so I have electronic locks I built that you must perform Micro-PK on in order to get them to unlock. You can find more information on those types of devices at Device and Method for Responding to Influences of Mind.
According to her institution’s site, she has the same job that she has had for years. I was willing to ignore the negative impacts of fraud in pseudoscience and just bizarre beliefs; however, people ignoring that created a systematic skepticism of science fueling a massive pandemic in my country that is killing people. Presently, people are spiritually vulnerable, so to take advantage of that for the collective goal of furthering an agenda is awful. Not only that, like many Discord groups, PSC has had an uptick in alt-right, racists, hate group members joining in order to spread their propaganda, and she does not reliably check it!
Furthermore, one of her protegees is from the Netherlands. That member likely has brain damage due to seizures and mental illness. Versus directing that person to proper treatment, she enabled and encouraged OEC lunacy. That resulted in that person deciding to take a trip to the United States to see a family of self-identified vampires and otherkin folks in a location where people were arrested for sex trafficking. While here in the US, she got caught up in lockdowns as a result of the covid19 pandemic. The area she was staying in recently became ground zero for a police-involved shooting, arson, protests, and an increase in gun-related crimes and murder.
I do not quite understand her. I am not sure why Rainsong decided to add science fiction to the mix. Her academic institution’s research concerning holistic and alternative medicine and their praxis is ethical, empirical, and beneficial. It just has a very tenuous connection to anything linked to Parapsychology or mesmerism or any cognate of spiritualists thought. Maybe that is why she must add sprinkles of falsehood to the tale. If she left it at that, it would not be a problem. I recently contacted Rainsong and informed her the dishonesty, lack of integrity, and being complicit while fringe, alt. right, extremist groups and members use her community to spread misinformation, propaganda, and recruit can pose a problem for her professionally and that I had a big ethical problem with it. Her response was her employer is aware of her psionic activities. That is probably true on a broad level, but I am sure a Bioethics department would have a major issue with integrity issues. If this was contained to fringe corners of the Internet, this would not be so bad but when you have people promoting from within medicine crackpot theories that create a mistrust in reliable medicine that works in the middle of a pandemic, it cost lives. What kills me is the legitimate research is rather interesting, and I would like to post it; however, the connection between that institution’s library and Rainsong is too close. She can just talk about that without all the science fiction. Out of her own mouth, or at least fingers, this is how professionals parapsychologists such as Edwin May perceive what she is pushing:
On a personal level, it matters to me because my own family’s involvement with the occult, paranormal, and fringe groups have left scars. I have not decided whether I will speak about it on here or not. Magic is dark. Occultism is dark. Legitimate sources of it are power and power corrupts humans. The truth is that PsiPog and the people who contributed to it were largely marginalized adults and children who wanted to belong to something special and exclusive. There is nothing wrong with that, but people need to accept it for what it is and learn to grow it up. I am saddened and disappointed that many people prefer to pursue their childhood imaginations instead of dealing with their lives as adults. It is sad to see someone in their 30’s going back to a place where they were children. Some of these people have children of their own.
