It was Full Moon Open Lines on the second half of Friday's program. One caller related a fascinating episode of when he belonged to a meditation group that was trying to raise their spiritual levels. After a session, the caller said he witnessed a member put his hand on the couch for support as he was about to stand up and "his hand went right through the couch like he was phasing in and out," and was vibrating at a higher plane. "I lived ten years in a dream," said Kevin in Springfield who told of having a life-changing dream one night involving a woman he didn't know at the time. In the dream they were living together and had two children. After the night of his long dream he said he broke up with his current girlfriend and couldn't get the dream woman out of his mind. Six months later on a trip to New Orleans he ran into the woman in his dream. "Are you Laura?" he asked her and she said yes. It turned out she had had the same dream about him. They have been happily married for
Tonight's guest, Robert Bartholomew, has written about the case known as "The Mad Gasser," and declared it to be a classic case of mass hysteria. Back in September of 1944, the town of Matoon, Illinois was panicked by reports of a "Mad Gasser" or "Mad Anesthetist." The Gasser was allegedly roaming the community and spraying a peculiar smelling gas through the windows of unsuspecting victims.
Tonight's guest Doreen Virtue has written about the phenomenon known as Indigo Children (the group that came before the Crystal Children) who have been so named because their auras are said to be indigo (dark blue with a touch of red). "The color indigo represents the third eye chakra, the energy center of psychic activity, which is believed to be wide open on most indigos," writes Wendy Chapman, the director of the Metagifted Resource Organization...
Richard C. Hoagland (website) appeared during the first half of Friday's show discussing a variety of topics. "Management at NASA knew Columbia was doomed at the get-go," Hoagland said and he believes some type of rescue mission could and should have been attempted. Hoagland also discussed the looting of the museum in Baghdad, pointing out the museum's offices were destroyed and the records of the collection were missing. He suggested that an inside job took place, which removed countless un-translated cuneiform tablets "because they contain the record of what really happened 7,000 years ago when kingship was lowered from heaven, when something amazing happened to launch full blown
all civilization on the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates." A recent episode of the TV show The West Wing was also singled out by Hoagland for its insightful treatment of the life on Mars issue. In the plotline, it was revealed that the Department of Defense had concealed information about Mars, and
--by Katie K. This story is PG-rated, but it is true and happened tome. A few years back, my roommate (at the time) and Iwould occasionally drive around the eastern half ofthe country, selling t-shirts for a young risingcountry singer (no one you'd know as he still hasn'trisen far!). Anyway, on one of these jaunts we drove from Wisconsinto Alabama overnight, driving straight throughthunderstorms, lightning and tornadoes in Tennessee.Needless to say, by the time we arrived at our motelat 4AM, we were exhausted. The singer's manager hadtold us that he reserved a pre-paid room for us which wewere very grateful for, so we checked in, planning ongoing straight to the room and getting some sleep. The room was a typical small motel room on the firstfloor with an entrance direct from the parking lot. Myroommate crashed out on the bed nearest the door whileI took the other one closest to the bathroom, thinkingI would fall right asleep. However, I w
Tonight's guest Budd Hopkins and other researchers have long faced scrutiny for bringing to light controversial reports of alien abduction that many find too incredible to believe. For instance the 1996 PBS documentary program Kidnapped by UFOs? produced by NOVA was considered by many in the ufological field to be a hatchet job, deliberately ignoring research. Now in an article penned by Hopkins on his website, he outlines how the abductees themselves have come under attack by various debunkers. One newer report of skeptical research comes from Professor Richard McNally of Harvard who concludes that while abductees show signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, it may stem from their strong beliefs in their alien encounters which he suggests are based on fantasies and sleep disorders. I examined the phenomenon of sleep paralysis (SP) for After Dark in 2001 and found that it was widely cited by skeptics as the cause of alien abduction reports. Susan Blackmore posited in th
Friday Night Feature took the night off, so that we could bring you another special request-- your own personal mp3 of the ever-popular "Sounds of Hell." Allegedly the cacophony was recorded in Russia where someone placed a microphone into a hole that ran deep into the earth. Click here to have a listen. Some say this story falls into the Urban Legend bin. Check out this piece from the folks at Snopes.com for their take.
Tonight's guest, psychic Sylvia Browne has offered a set of predictions for the next 100 years on her website. Here are a few of them to consider: Aliens will begin to show themselves in the year 2010, they will not harm us, they simply want to see what we are doing to this planet. They will teach us how to use anti-gravity devices again, such as they did for the pyramids.Third floor of houses have rollback roofs to allow Hovercrafts to come and go. People will be able to simply "walk out" of their bodies upon death. There will be no US Presidency; our government will go back to a Greek Senate structure. Atlantis will begin to show itself by 2023 and be fully visible by 2026. West Coast goes under in 2026. Parts of the East Coast also get inundated. Tsunamis will wipe out a large portion of Japan. The Hawaiian Islands will have upheaval and be the site of a large new landmass. To read more of Sylvia Browne's predictions visit this page.
