Jon Ray is the author of the weblog, They Laughed at Jules Verne, where he writes essays on personal growth, art, creativity, new energy, the future, mastering your own reality, Jesus lightning, spiritual development, the laws of the universe, imagination, and just about anything else that sneaks into that bean in his head.
In late 2012, after working at Google as part of their Global Field Marketing management team for two years, he opted to resign and explore the universe full time. He currently lives in Austin, Texas, where much of his self-experimentation takes place. Current experiments include: Drinking only holy or blessed water, dowsing for supplements, working out in his mind to stay in shape, chilly walks, quantum healing, stimulating the pineal gland to induce psychic and intuitive abilities, attempting levitation of objects, and many other quantifiably insane projects to find out how far over the edge one can really go.
His hope is to inspire others to think beyond what is currently possible. To try and figure things out for themselves, or step beyond the need for physical proof. To approach life from a place of innocence. He’s currently writing a book about his spiritual adventures in consciousness. If Indiana Jones and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy had a child and that child was baptized by Augusten Burroughs, you might have some semblance of Jon Ray’s forthcoming book—at least that’s what he’ll tell you if you ask him.
He is available for speaking engagements, personal appearances, creative coaching, pep talks, or to join you on your private spacecraft as you explore the universe.
