Tonight's guest Ed Dames was hired as a technical consultant for the feature film Suspect Zero and also plays the role of a remote viewing instructor in it. Now there's what you'd call type casting! The movie stars Aaron Eckhart as a Dallas-based FBI agent investigating the case of a former agent (Ben Kingsley) who may be killing serial killers. The story line is said to involve a covert government program called "Icarus" which churns out ace remote viewers. Originally scheduled to be released in October of this year, its current release date is listed as 2004 TBA. One can imagine that pinning down the mercurial logic behind studio release dates, would baffle even the best of remote viewers. The amount of information on a film that hasn't been released yet is also mind boggling. There are Internet sites that review purported scripts in various stages, pages that post production stills, and even a website that documents how their office was turned into Katie's (Carrie Ann
by Anthony McGettigan The Summer Solstice has arrived. The Summer Solstice Sun is aligned withSaturn and nearly exactly opposite to the Galactic Center. The effect ofthe solstice-related events are already upon us and will hit a highpoint between June 21 to 24. This will be an unusual and importantsolstice--however, this is only the first of 3 very significantcelestial events that will happen thissummer.First of all, the Summer Solstice Sun will closely align with Saturn.This alignment is rare because Saturn takes nearly 30 years to orbit theSun, and it is much less frequent that the Sun, Earth, and Saturn allalign with a solstice point. This event is all the more significant dueto an exact alignment with Uranus on June 24th. For more details, pleasevisit this page. Also in August there will be a very close alignment of 6 planets withthe fixed star, Regulus (also known as Cor Lionis, or the Heart of theLion). Some have said this event marks a profo
Tonight's guest, Wade Gordon, has written about his involvement in a secretive project at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Brookhaven, which is located on Long Island, was built in 1947 to house a nuclear reactor. Over the years the lab expanded its facilities and research machines and now employs over 3,000 people. Some of their unclassified experiments such as a recent atom smashing that produced conditions similar to the Big Bang, are almost as fascinating as the black project contentions.
By Pete C. On Friday, October 13th 2000 (a full moon night) I was out with a film crewthat was doing a documentary on Bachelors Grove cemetery near Chicago,Illinois. They invited me along because I run the main web site for thiscemetery, so I agreed to go with them. That night I filmed a strange lightwhich can be viewed at the link below. Towards sunrise, while we werepacking up to leave, I as well as another associate both saw some sort ofblack object about 5 feet in diameter dart across a portion of the cemetery.We were both in the middle of a discussion at the time so when it passed usby we both went silent; then stared at each other while almost at the sametime said "did you see that?" Unfortunately we had all of our cameras packedup at that moment so nothing was ready to capture it. But at least the videocamera was able to capture something of a paranormal nature earlier thatnight.Clickhere to view. (Note: The Ghost Research section of bachelor
Tonight's guest Roger Tolces has assisted victims of electronic harassment which can take place when someone uses an electronic device to invade a person's privacy or property. Biochip implants, which are just beginning to come on the market, have been talked about as a device that could be potentially harmful in that regard. The ingenious chips, about the size of a rice grain, can be embedded under a person's skin by a doctor using a large needle. They contain transmitters which can relay a bounty of information about a person such as their personal identification and medical records. While there are obvious benefits to the technology, such as accessing vital health information during an emergency or locating a lost or kidnapped person, many are sounding the alarm over the likely loss of privacy. All movements and transactions could be accessed by authorities. Big Brother "knows where you are ALL the time. Privacy- the very concept of privacybecomes an anachronism," writes col
Tonight's guest Jon Kelly has explored the terrain of unconscious messages through his work with human speech. Many believe our conscious awareness is the tip of the iceberg to a deeper well. Freud posited an individual's subconscious as a zone for suppressed memories and desires, while Jung added the additional layer of the Collective Unconscious, a kind of universal mind of shared archetypes. It was Freud's nephew Edward Bernays, who took his Uncle's ideas and applied them to America's rapidly expanding marketplace in the early 20th Century. A propagandist for America in WWI, later Bernays coined a new term for his work public relations. He was one of the first to take advantage of the subconscious as a selling tool. "You no longer had to offer people what they needed; by linking your brand with their deeper hopes and fears, you could persuade them to buy what they dreamt of," Tim Adams wrote in an article about Bernays. Another way the subconscious was mined for commer
Back in 2001, I profiled James Gilliland for an article in After Dark, and we spoke about some of the unusual sightings at his ranch. "When you move into what I call interdimensional mind, you expand beyond your personality and beyond your body. You actually create a doorway for these events to happen or you attract them to you," Gilliland said. Residents of his Institute had been experiencing apparition-like sightings for a number of years, which they associated with their contacts with ascended masters (enlightened spirit guides) such as Babaji whose torso was witnessed as a manifestation over a pond. Gilliland believes their interactions with the masters opened the gateway for contacts from such evolved ET races as the Pleiadians. "You can't really separate the UFO phenomenon from spiritual phenomenon because they go hand in hand," he said. "The greys and the black budget stuff are just a small piece of the puzzle. There are so many planes and dimensions beyond that where advanced
-- By Ron Hamm When I was 7 years old, I was in the second grade. One day in early May, I had been selected at random to stay after school and clean the blackboards and erasers. I assure you this was not punishment, contrary to what my Mother may say. As a result of cleaning I walked home alone. It wasnt a long walk, about 4 blocks; it usually took about 5 minutes to walk home. However, on this day I walked a little more slowly, enjoying the beautiful May day. Picture a kid picking up a stick and running it along a picket fence, picking up rocks, and looking at the bugs. Lollygagging as it were, well that was what I was doing that day. It was a picture perfect day, the sun was out, not a cloud in the sky. I was walking along not really thinking about anything, when all at once the sun was being blocked by something in the sky. I turned my face to the sun and watched in horrified fascination as a huge silver spaceship completely blotted the sun from my view. As my eye
Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf explores the lore of Nibiru and the Reptilians in an excerpt from his book Changing the Tides of Fear. Among his revelations: Nibiru or Planet X is actually an artificial structure, used as a base by an Orion race of beings. In our universe, there are over ten billion worlds that support life. Reptilian beings cannot manifest into our reality structure, but they can enter as "hitchhikers" through human hosts. Our reality membrane was damaged by time travel and interdimensional experiments, and now other consciousnesses previously unable to enter, can get in. There was a pre-ice age civilization of enormous intelligence. It is inevitable that we will once again encounter the beings of Nibiru. Man's inhumanity to his own kind, is far worse than anything star beings would do to us. --L.L.
One of the areas that tonight's guest, Gordon Thomas touches on in his book Seeds of Fire, was the arrest and subsequent release of Dr. Wen Ho Lee. A Chinese scientist working at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lee was accused of spying for China, and passing crucial data to them about the US's nuclear warhead designs. When charges against Lee were dropped, Thomas writes that there were rumors it was because the US government didn't want him spilling the beans about a super secret project he was involved in. "Lee, ran the whispers, worked on what was known as Project HPHolographic Portal," Thomas writes. Thomas reported that according to Dr. Richard Boylan, a scientist with NSA contacts, Lee was working with a kind of ET device that could allow for travel through the space-time continuum. In an Internet published article, Boylan writes that Lee may have created a "Get Out of Jail Free" card for himself, by using a "self-protective proviso" that if anything should happen him
Tonight's guest, Watts Wacker co-authored the Visionary's Handbook, which examines some of the paradoxes involved in preparing for the future, both in a business context and in one's life. "The smallest guy has got to think big and the biggest guy has to think small," Wacker said in an interview with Government Technology. Wacker stresses the importance of having a vision, because if you don't, you're liable to get swept up in someone else's. One thing he's learned about visioning is the "difference between bacon and eggs. The hen is involved but the pig is committed. In the end, your vision is only as good as your commitment to the execution of it," Wacker said. "Life has never been easier, and because it has never been easier, life has never been more hard," Wacker writes in his book. He also talks about learning to live with the future but expressed in the present tense, because the way a person conceives of the future will determine how that future will play out. The
--By Betsy Balega This happened to me back when I was in high school in Pennsylvania. I was a junior, and there was a sophomore girl, Michelle D., who was trying to make a little extra cash, by selling Avon.I was making extra money, by babysitting, and to be honest, I was not into buying Avon. But, one Monday, we were chatting after school and Michelle showed me her Avon book.Understanding how hard it is for us kids to get extra cash, I decided to cut her a break, and I ordered some Avon, under $10 worth. She made out my order, then said, "You don't have to pay me till Tuesday, not tomorrow (which was Tuesday), but next Tuesday, when the orders come in." I was about to say, "OK." When I heard a voice say, "You will never pay this girl any money, because she is going to die, next Sunday, in a car accident, with her father." I kept quiet and said "Ok, next Tuesday is fine." I never gave Michelle the warning. The next Sunday, my Mom and Dad, and I went o
Tonight's guest, Dr. Richard Wiseman, has conducted scientific investigations into a number of interesting areas, including that of ghostly phenomena. He and his associates set up two large scale experiments to study why some people report ghostly sensations (such as seeing apparitions or feeling cold spots) in allegedly haunted locations. The first study took place in 1999 in England's Hampton Court Palace, which has long been said to be haunted by Catherine Howard, who was beheaded by order of her husband King Henry VIII. Over the years, some 300 people have reported strange occurrences in the gallery, where Catherine is said to have pleaded for her life. The study involved 1,000 members of the public who were given questionnaires about their experiences and also employed high tech equipment such as thermal-imaging. The results showed unusual sensations were tied to specific locations, though Wiseman believes "some of these experiences were caused by natural phenomena, such as su
Tonight's guest, Marshall Masters has studied a variety of data to conclude that Nibiru (an hypothesized additional planet on a long period orbit) does pass close enough to Earth to create havoc. In an article on his website, he suggests a flyby is more likely to occur around 2012 than this year. This would correlate the event with the end of the Mayan calendar. Masters believes the most solid indications for Nibiru's presence are "precursor events" in our solar system. He lists such changes as Pluto undergoing global warming, increases in magnetic activity on Saturn and volcanic eruptions on Io, as all potentially having the same root cause. However he writes, "the fact is that if Nibiru were going to be here, an object this massive would have already been in the news for months

--by Stu (email@example.com) View Photos Here. The Philadelphia Hospital For The Mentally Ill opened in 1912. Because of unacceptable, deplorable conditions, the State of PA. took it over in 1937. The state finally closed the hospital in 1990 because of patient abuse and overcrowding. The hospital has nothing but horror stories. It was a very sad place. It held everyone from mentally ill orphans to the criminally insane. It now sits abandoned except for the weekend partiers, the urban explorers, and the ghost hunters. I live a mile away from it and frequently explore its twenty-five buildings, seven of them being super structures, and its catacombs. They are all connected by underground tunnels. The hospitals' history is straight out of a horror film. The stories are many, some true, some not. One in question concerns a mass grave on the grounds. It's referred to as John Doe's morgue. Another story is, a hatchet man used to chase people through the catacombs, this is tru
Tonight's guest Robert O. Dean believes the US government has had knowledge of an extraterrestrial reality for quite some time. One fascinating account that would be corroboration of this, concerns a secretive visit that President Eisenhower allegedly made to Muroc Field (now Edwards Air Force Base) in 1954. He was there to view ET craft and reportedly even watched a disc land. Gerald Light, an eyewitness to the encounter, who attended the meeting with a representative of Hearst Newspapers, claimed that Roman Catholic bishop James McIntyre and Edward Nourse of the Brookings Institute were also there. Light referred to the aliens as "the Etherians" (another reported witness, a British pilot, said they were basically human in appearance). According to Light's report, the aliens requested that Eisenhower make the public aware of their existence, but the President didn't believe people were ready for such a bombshell. "I watched the pathetic bewilderment of rather brilliant bra
Tonight's guest, Hans King, gleans knowledge from the Other Side through his mediumistic abilities. Mediums are "those who are able to tune into the faster vibration of the spirit body after death," writes James Van Praagh in his bestseller Talking to Heaven. This differentiates them from psychics, who don't necessarily have the ability to communicate with discarnate spirits. Another well-known medium, John Holland, refers to himself as a drawbridge: "I raise my energy, and the spirits lower theirs. A bridge is then built and using the power of love, we have a connection that flows, with feelings, words, and memories." Mediumships fall into two categories: mental and physical. Mental mediums typically receive their communications telepathically, but among the forms physical mediumship can take are: rappings, levitation, apports (appearance of objects) and channeling. In the case of channeling the discarnate spirit will speak directly through the medium, often in a voice that is d
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

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

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.
Moscow-based paranormal investigator, James L. Choron, has been following the mysterious crash of a "flying wing" shaped UFO into Kalingrad harbor which reportedly took place on April 18, 2003. He sends us this update: Remains of Kaliningrad UFO Taken to Prominent Moscow Institute by James L.

On Monday night, George read the following story that was sent to him, to celebrate National Friendship Week. Here is the text: "A Friend" One day when I was a freshman in high school, I saw a kid from my class was walking home from school. His name was Kyle. It looked like he was carrying all of his books. I thought to myself, "Why would anyone bring home all of his books on a Friday? He must really be a nerd." I had quite a weekend planned (parties and a football game with my friends tomorrow afternoon), so shrugged my shoulders and went on. As I was walking, I saw a bunch of kids running toward him. They ran at him, knocking all his books out of his arms and tripping him so that he landed in the dirt. His glasses went flying, and I saw them land in the grass about ten feet from him. He looked up and I saw this terrible sadness in his eyes. My heart went out to him. So, I jogged over to him and as he crawled around looking for his glasses and I saw a tear in his eye.
Tonight's guest John Ronner has said that "tens of millions of people have had angel encounters." In some cases these encounters border on the miraculous. One such incident was detailed in an article from the December issue of After Dark. A worker at an Indiana chemical plant, Steven J., describes what happened one afternoon when he was cleaning out a vat, and there was a sudden explosion. "Everything erupted into this great chemical fire. There was no escape. Horrified, I started calling out to God for help. Suddenly, I saw 'an opening' where there shouldn't have been an opening. A voice inside my head commanded me in a very strong voice: 'Go now!' Without waiting another second I moved towards what looked like an opening where no opening should have been." "When I recovered, I found myself on the main floor of the plant. Everyone had assembled around me and several company nurses were fussing with First Aid. When I told everyone what happened, they couldn't believe it. I kn
The Spirit of the Shed by Michelle O. About 5 years ago I was living in a small house with 2 other roommates. One was an older man by the name of Pedro and the other was my female cousin, Paula. At the time of this incident I had been living there about 6 months but Paula had been there over a year and Pedro's family actually owned the house. He had been living there a number of years. One night in late October we had quite a few friends over for a party and as the night wound down we found ourselves listening to Pedro tell us stories about the spooks and spectres that lurked about the house. Now Paula and I had both already heard these tales and had heard a few noises and witnessed Pedro's cat behave strangely a few times. Since nothing sinister ever happened so we didnt think too much about it. But there was one tale that I had not heard and it was about the shed that faced the rear bedrooms of the house. My room was on the side of the house and I never went int
One of the books that tonight's guest Gavin de Becker has written is The Gift of Fear, a kind of guidebook for using one's intuitions and instincts to recognize and react to potentially dangerous situations. de Becker points out that many Americans live in denial about violence, yet our country has a murder rate that is ten times higher than that of other Western nations and there are more firearms than adults in the U.S. Instead of focusing on predicting and preventing violence he believes our country expands the "technologies of conflict," with more guns, prisons, SWAT teams, stun guns, and Tasers. "Like every creature, you can know when you are in the presence of danger. You have the gift of a brilliant internal guardian that stands ready to warn you of hazards and guide you through risky situations," de Becker writes. By trusting their "gut feeling," rather than logic, de Becker believes a person can be more grounded in nature and make smarter choices. He also writes tha
