I was interviewed by Reese Jones, an individual unaffiliated with any company or organization. After following my work for several months, she contacted via email and asked to conduct an extended interview via YouTube. The latest clip, which is her favorite, is embedded below. The interview was conducted 17 July 2014. The full slate of video clips can be found here. I very much appreciate Reese’s efforts.

This video in the series is important, but then, they all are. This video is particularly stark — Dr. McPherson dares to cite predictions regarding the timeline for the end of the banking industry and the power grid as we know them to be. Predictions are always a dangerous thing to do. The universe seems to take umbrage and turn on its ear just to make a mockery of this very type of hubris.
I applaud Dr. McPherson’s courage. Every word he speaks is important; whether you agree or disagree, the messages are provocative and given with great care, and will provide one much to think about. And sometimes, predictions do indeed come true.
Interviewing Dr. McPherson, you may discover he is a lyrical man; he seems to be both sensitive artist as well as prodigious dispensary of scientific facts. He seems given to philosophy, poetry, speculative wonder, expressing deep appreciation for both cruel reality as well as the ephemerally sublime.
He is one of the most unique individuals I have ever come across on Youtube, a video world populated with already very unique individuals. And few if any of these come with the academic credentials that adorn Dr. McPherson.
How many have given up a lifetime of such solid investiture to follow their higher truth? Very few it seems, and those who have seem most often to fall by the wayside, mere shadows of their former, compliant, successful selves. They dared dance on the peripheries of accepted dogma, only to become pariahs held in utter disdain by their more conservative peers.
Not only is Dr. McPherson lyrically erudite, but he is also very entertaining. You might find yourself mesmerized by his every word. Right or wrong, agree or disagree, his message has the power to spur us to action. As he says, all we really have is this one moment. Let us make the most of it; who knows how many more there will be?
