"When you realize the actual dream is here in our self-proclaimed 'reality', the sheer hilarity of it all is dropped on you like an a-bomb. Haven't been able to stop laughing since..." 

Aron

Aron was born in 1983 in Alkmaar, The Netherlands. After attending high school in Alkmaar at the Murmellius Gymnasium he went on to study Experimental Psychology at the University of Amsterdam (U.v.A.), earning his Masters degree with merit in 2012, after attending the U.v.A. for 10 years. Why hurry when you are enjoying yourself, right?

Writing his thesis on a parapsychological subject, he chose to devote (the psychological science part of) his career to a controversial field, studying subjects like life after death, telepathy, extra sensory perception and telekinesis.

Unfortunately in today's close minded paradigm, main stream science isn't very receptive of results coming from this field of study, making this mainly a voluntary effort. He is also a member of the board at the Dutch Society for Psychical Research.

Aron Bijl as the Joker

In late 2016, after a 5 week incarceration concerning a drug related charge, he was looking for and in need of a new challenge. In 2017 he started the Proud Highway blog, eager to share his thoughts with a broader public. A bit of an eccentric and self-proclaimed devils advocate, he is always hunting for the naked truth and going out to the edge of things in doing so, both on paper and in real life. He is fascinated by the fringe side of things and while treading there, he gives his vision of the truth in matters.

    Just when you thought things couldn't possibly get any weirder, the cosmic joker recently played his ultimate trump-card, and quite literally this time. A depraved egomaniac at the wheel.

  • Elders react to Rammstein – The unabridged version

    A couple of days ago, Fine Brothers Entertainment released a hilarious clip of some elders reacting to Rammstein clips. While on of their opening statements - "uh oh, this must be one of those heavy metal videos" - did not bode well, what follows gives new hope for reason someday dominating humanities' motives. A big step since a previous generation of elders reacted to Elvis' "develish moves".  A leap of both faith...
  • How studying for yesterdays’ exam can up your grade!

    Being a scientist at heart (I have a degree in experimental psychology) I like to get a little "science-ey" now and then. It's not for everyone, the material can get kind of dry but for those who are into it, here is my first ever scientific publication. It was first published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration back in 2014. I found support for a theory that states that information can not...

      Google A.I. powers are reaching new, even eerier levels In a new ploy by Google to figure us out completely, they recently announced a new project mapping YouTube views and Google searches directly to retail store visits.  If we are to believe them, they will be able to exactly predict when and where we will visit a store and what we will purchase. Judging by the way they managed to make adds tailored...

  • Why the Proud Highway? Explaining the title of this website.

    Aron Bijl I believe the title of this website, the Proud Highway, deserves a little explanation, as it refers to one of the best, most out there writer of t the last couple of decades: dr. Hunter Stockton Thompson (1937 - 2005).Wielding a writing style that always involved himself in the story,participating, in stead of observing, resulted in crazy yet brilliantly descriptive words. This method became known as Gonzo Journalism, a term coined...
