Tonight's guest Dr. Matthew Johnson will be reporting about his encounter with a Sasquatch. An ongoing debate in the Cryptozoology field is whether or not Bigfoot could be an interdimensional rather than flesh and blood creature. Experts such as Loren Coleman believe that solid evidence such as tracks and other samples lend credence to the creature being a physical form. Paranormal researcher Rob Riggs told After Dark that "we always want to jump right in and say that's extradimensional or paranormal but you know I think we may simply be talking about creatures that have access to physical spaces that humans cannot perceive. That they in fact are three-dimensional physical creatures but they are able to go into spaces that lie outside our perception because they are outside our reality tunnel
that somehow these creatures enter into spaces that we have not mentally tuned into." Meanwhile remote viewer Ed Dames, who was just on the show last week, also commented on the Bigfoot
Tonight's guest Henry Willis has examined how weather changes can have a severe effect on the world. One of the most intriguing paradoxes about the current situation is how global warming can actually contribute to what has been called a "New Little Ice Age," which could form in the northern hemisphere. "Earth's climate has changed rapidly in the past and could change rapidly in the future," write Terrence Joyce and Lloyd Keigwin, scientists for the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. In their article, they lay out how weather changes can be brought on by modifications in the ocean currents. Known as the "Great Ocean Conveyor," heat in the ocean generally moves from the equator towards both of the poles. When the conveyor system last broke from this pattern (estimated by climatologists to be 12,000 years ago) a dramatic cooling took place. What could be bringing us to that point again may be caused by the increase in fresh water in the North Atlantic Ocean, which normally maint
I have been listening to Art Bell since '94. At the time I was living in Sacramento in an old Victorian and worked for acompany based out of Seattle. My friend and I went to visit a psychic inSeattle and she asked me if i had a stuffed bear missing, or keys...thingssmall in nature. I said yes and that it drove me nuts. She told me I hada little apparition following me around named Adriana. She told me that thislittle girl who "slept" with me at night (I know freaky) was the soul of myfuture daughter....Needless to say this "Adriana" was quite mischievious...shewould turn lights on and off, move things and flick on the TV. SometimesI felt like I could smell her. It was very strange. At the time the apartment I was renting, although very beautiful, didn't alwaysoffer such "cute" little experiences. I would always smell somebodycigarette smoking...No one lived above me or below me and I could never figureout the source of the smell...I came to find out
As most faithful listeners of Coast to Coast know, Remote Viewing doesn't refer to surfing on your couch with a remote control. Rather it's a type of psychic information gathering that was used by a secret government-spying program for over twenty years. Remote viewing (RV) rose to prominence when the CIA declassified the military's program in 1995, and the subject was featured in mainstream media at that time. One purpose of the military unit was as kind of a keeping up with the (psychic) Jones's, namely the Russians and KGB, during the Cold War years. Major Ed Dames, tonight's guest, worked on the military unit and can be probably be credited with doing the most to popularize the subject of RV since then. The basic RV technique involves perceiving a location or target that the viewer is not present at either in space or time, with the viewer sketching and then verbally describing their impressions, usually in different stages. What perhaps sets RV apart from other psychic g
Tonight's guest Michael E. Salla, PhD makes some interesting extrapolations between an ET presence on our planet and current events. In a commentary on his website he ponders whether the recent Columbia Shuttle disaster could actually be the result of a secretive clash between governments. Citing the work of scholar Zecharia Sitchin, Salla outlines how the Anunnaki, an ancient group of extraterrestrials who interacted with the Sumerians, may have brought advanced technology to their civilization. This technology might be buried in an ancient city such as Uruk (in modern day Iraq), which the German government had recently begun plans to excavate. Salla writes there may be a connection between this planned dig and Germany's refusal to participate in a preemptive war against Iraq. Further, Salla suggests that the Columbia could have been shot down as a warning not to attack Iraq, and that the conflict "may well mask a deeper desire to gain access and control of extraterrestrial technolog
Tonight's guest Daniel Durda has studied smaller objects moving in our solar system such as asteroids and comets. Recently there was an eruption of controversy surrounding the comet NEAT, with accusations spreading via the Internet that NASA was covering up information about its trajectory. According to an article on Space.com, web-based rumors widely circulated that the comet was planet-sized and could radically alter Earth's weather. In fact the comet, which was observed receiving a coronal mass ejection as it approached the sun, is only a few miles wide according to scientists. It currently is heading back to the outer solar system and away from Earth. Yet, a report that recently surfaced associated with the Rand Corp. added to the controversy. It was suggested that if the Earth was about to be hit by a large asteroid, authorities might not inform the public in order to avoid mass panic, when nothing really could be done to prevent it. Later it came out that the information wa
Both of tonight's guests, Steve Quayle (first hour) and David Hagberg, have studied the global situation as it relates to potential warfare. Yesterday a report was published in the Independent UK detailing how the US military is preparing to use chemical and gas compounds in Iraq. Specifically they named the toxic riot-control agent CS gas as well as pepper spray. CS is a kind of tear gas, 0-chlorobenzalmalononitrile in powder form, which is usually mixed with a dispersal agent, like methylene chloride. It can be used to force people out of a building and its symptoms include extreme burning in the nose and throat, vomiting and nausea. While it's not fatal, its use had been banned along with other agents in the Chemical Weapons Convention that the US signed in 1975. The Independent also wrote that "internal Pentagon documents
show that the US is developing a range of calmative gases, also banned for battlefield use." These could be similar to the chemicals used in the Moscow theat
The Child's MotherI have been a Registered Nurse now for approximately 5 years in the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan. My co-workers and I will never forget what had happened to us one night on Sept. 24, 1998. I was working the night shift from 7pm to 7am. Like many hospitals, we work a 12 hour shift schedule. I was working on a pediatric unit back then. I was caring for a 3 year-old child that had suffered from multiple burns and trauma. The child was involved in an automobile accident. The mother was driving down a local highway, when suddenly she lost control of her vehicle and was hit head on by an oncoming semi-truck. The mother was killed instantly but the child, who was in the back seat had survived. On the night of Sept. 24,1998 when I was caring for the child, all of the nurses, including myself, had finished making rounds and were sitting behind the nurse's station charting. The time was approximately 0200 in the am. We had baby monitors placed in various patient
Tonight's guests, Jeffrey Mishlove and James Spottiswode, will be inviting people to participate in a precognition experiment that will take place in Los Angeles this Sunday. For those who would like to try peering into the future at home, Jane Robert's book How to Develop Your ESP Power offers some fun exercises. Roberts, acclaimed for channeling the "Seth" entity, received a message from him about the elusive nature of time. "Physical time is basically meaningless to the subconscious, and
the inner self has at its command a knowledge of past lives," Seth said. Indeed, one may also have access to future events. Along those lines Roberts has suggested a simple exercise to chart one's premonitions and intuitions. Once a day, at a convenient time, sit down alone, Roberts suggests. "You are going to predict future events for yourself

Tonight's guest William Thomas believes that an insidious spraying program is being conducted by U.S. Air Force tanker aircraft as part of an ongoing weather modification operation over North America. The mainstream media has generally placed such reports into the "conspiracy theory" bin and not treated the subject seriously. But because of the persistent reports and questions about chemtrails, the EPA, NASA, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration collaborated on a "fact sheet" in 2001 that claims that contrails are simply composed of water vapor and ice crystals, not toxic chemicals. However the late author Jim Keith in his investigation of the "black helicopter" phenomena uncovered startling evidence of a governmental spraying program. He described an incident that took place in August of 1994 in the town of Oakville, WA where residents experienced"tiny, gelatinous blobs
rain(ing) from the sky, blanketing 20 square miles. There were six falls of gelatinous ma
Tonight's guest Craig Winn, an authority on terrorism and the Middle East, has looked at the roots of al-Qaeda. The term Wahhabism has been used to describe the religious sect of Islam that may have influenced the ideology of such groups as al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Wahhabism was a movement that began in the mid-18th century. It called for a renewal of the Muslim spirit via a cleansing of the morals, and a cease to any changes in Islam. Started by Muhammed bin Abd al-Wahhab, the movement is closely tied to the development of Saudi Arabia. In fact Ali Al-Ahmed, a Muslim who grew up in Saudi Arabia told Frontline that their school curriculum teaches that there are the chosen ones (Wahhabis) who will go to heaven and all the rest including other Muslims, Jews and Christians. Those people are "supposed to be hated, to be persecuted, even killed
Bin Laden learned this in Saudi Arabia. He didn't learn it on the moon." said Al-Ahmed. Some of the prohibitions and commandments of Wahhabi
One area that tonight's guest, Dr. Jeffrey Long, has researched is After Death Communication (ADC). ADC is defined as a contact that comes from a deceased friend or family member and often occurs within a short time of their passing.These communications arrive in a spontaneous fashion and as such are differentiated from those of mediums or psychics who deliberately contact the dead. They may come during a regular waking state or in dreams or meditations when the receiver may be more responsive to this kind of communication. Long has set up a website, adcrf.org, to collect and analyze ADC reports. ADC may take the form of various sensory input, such as smelling a familiar scent of the deceased, feeling a tap or hug from them, or hearing them in a one or two way conversation. Among the website's postings was one from a woman who wrote that on the morning of her husband's funeral she awoke "to the sensation of someone gently stroking the tip of my wedding ring finger, which was ou
I had a strange experience once within a sweat lodge
We had been taking the whole sweat lodge ceremony lightly. But then the Shaman in the lodge began to chant/sing a very strange word: "HaiTaalmoni" over and over. We all began to sweat and feel very very hot
Then in a glaring orb of light, a face appeared to all of us. It was the face of a Black man with frosted white hair. He looked ancient. He began talking but we could not understand what he said. The old Shaman with us began to shake and tremble and then in a very much louder voice he said..."When the moon is almost crossed the evening of its dawn 11 times and in 2 spans of its trail, the earth shall dance and the music of the drums will only be saying death: death to all that hunt the moon's face. Run & Hide until even the light of the sun cannot find your face and only then will you be safe, for the earth will crack open and spill its blood and vaiyu (?) will reign upon the open lands." We began to grow col
Tonight's guest, Hank Wesselman Ph.D., teaches shamanism workshops across the country. "Shamans are men and women who can achieve expanded states of awareness in which they can perceive and communicate in ways not possible in our ordinary waking state of consciousness," Wesselman explained in an interview with Deepak Chopra. In traditional cultures, shamans often help to heal community members who are suffering from either physical or psychological maladies. Referring to shamans as "spiritual activists," Wesselman said their work is often accomplished with the aid of guardian spirit helpers. From the shamanistic perspective illnesses don't really come from bacteria and microbes, but rather from three internal states: disharmony, fear and soul loss. "Soul loss is regarded as the most serious diagnosis and the single greatest cause of premature death or serious illness," Wesselman said. A person might lose an element of their soul after undergoing severe trauma such as from an a
Riley Martin documents his long standing relationship with aliens in his book "The Coming of Tan." In it, he describes his experiences with telepathic entities named the "Biaviians" who are around 4-ft. tall with large heads, long arms and delicate 4-fingered hands. While the "grey" aliens with their egg-shaped heads and spindly bodies are the type most often described in recent times, reports of visitors have come in all shapes and sizes over the years. Here is a sampling of descriptions that were made in the context of UFO sightings: Pascagoula, Miss.-- 1973, 5-ft. tall robotic entities with wrinkled gray skin. Reportedly their arms ended in claws, their legs appeared to be merged together and they made a buzzing noise. Voronezh, Russia-- 1989, 10-ft tall creature with no neck and three eyes. The center eye higher than the other two was said to glow red and may have been a lighting source. Aveley, England-- 1974, Hairy humanoid about 4-ft. tall that was covered with bro
Tonight's guest, Nostradamus scholar John Hogue, has speculated on the identity of Mabus, the so-called third Antichrist that Nostradamus named in his quatrains. Here is one quatrain where Mabus is mentioned: Mabus will soon die, then will come,A horrible undoing of people and animals, At once one will see vengeance, One-hundred powers, thirst, famine, when the comet will pass-Century 2, Quatrain 62 Hogue told After Dark that Nostradamus' apocalyptic visions could be his way of describing the after effects of a nuclear winter or the results of chemical or biological weapons. Current speculation as to who Mabus is, has focused on mainly Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. Hogue said that Nostradamus often couched the use of proper names in anagrams and word games. "Usama," Hogue says is the correct phonetic pronunciation of Osama and what Nostradamus may have done was dropped the redundant "a" and inserted a "b" which would then contain all the letters of Mabus. Simi
Tonight's guest, Dr. Bart Kosko, the author of such books as Heaven in a Chip has pondered what the future may hold for our species. In a symposium on the TV program Closer to Truth, Kosko pointed out that while the human brain is a marvel of natural biology, it has certain limitations. "We'll be re-engineering the brain a piece at a time, initially with implants and other supplements and ultimately engineering an outright replacement," he said. Kosko sees our evolution going in the direction of transferring our consciousness into increasingly advanced computer chips which would allow people to live theoretically forever. "Just take the example of your past," he said. "You can't remember a great deal of what you did three years ago. But if you had the detailed richness of that experience wholly embedded in a chip, you could not only relive it at will, you could edit it
in innumerable creative ways." But will we become "chip potatoes?" Kosko doesn't see this as a bad thing.
Tonight we present three different tales from Coast listeners for your Valentine's Day enjoyment, though only one of them could be called heartwarming... The Glaring Woman Hi Coast to Coast! Ok, this is NOT a Valentine's story, unless you are the Undead!!!!! I had an "encounter" 13 years ago. This happened in Edmonton, Alberta Canada in 1990. It was a very nice sunny day in the summer, and I left my apartment to go to the store. As I was walking, I saw an ambulance across and down the street with no obvious car crash, but a bunch of people were gathered around. It was at the moment I could feel someone staring, more like glaring at me (remember, I am still a good block away from this accident scene) and I thought, "Oh, they think I'm rubbernecking and that's just rude, so I won't look." But the glaring continues. Then I look up and there is a dark haired woman standing about 20-30 feet back from the ambulance, and she is just glaring at me. "OK, enou
"Feeling goes beyond the senses and can be imagined as the fundamental awarenessout of which all of the other senses develop," Dr. Fred Alan Wolf writes in his new book,Matter Into Feeling: A New Alchemy of Science and Spirit. Wolf returns to Coast tonight on the heels of his January appearance on the show where he and George facilitated an exercise in mass consciousness regarding the situation with Iraq. In Matter into Feeling, Wolf puts forth the notion of "Adam Kadmon," an archetypal human, who unlike the Adam of the Bible is capable of evolving into something greater. "The Adam of the Book of Genesis seems almost an automaton
except for the feeling of shame
Adam Kadmon, on the other hand, is capable of feeling deeply all of the transformational possibilities imbedded within him," Wolf writes. His book is divided into nine mental/material movements that can serve as a guide to creating transformations in one's life. --L.L.
Making her debut tonight on Coast to Coast is Solara, a visionary and author. According to her website bio, she is neither a guru or channeler, but "an intrepid explorer into the Unknown," who serves as a catalyst for others to activate their own mastery. She has traveled the world since 1987 presenting workshops, classes and talks. The author of 11: 11: Inside the Doorway, she writes that we are in the midst of a time period between 1992 and 2011 where a "vast transformation doorway between duality and Oneness...is in effect." Solara also presents monthly "Surf" reports (via subscription on her website) in which she outlines her insights based on fluctuating energy patterns. In an overview article she writes "the year 2003 is a pivotal year in which events on the world stage could play themselves out in a variety of ways. It's similar to a teeter-totter

One of the areas tonight's guest, Dr. Nick Begich, has researched is the latest developments in military technology, which seems particularly pertinent now, given our potential war with Iraq. In an article on his website titled Star Wars, Star Trek and Killing Politely, he outlines how technology that could trigger earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and weather changes may already be in the works. Further, he writes about some alarming, so-called "non lethal" weapons that use a kind of electromagnetic energy pulse that when directed at the human body can effect movement, sleep and memory. One military forecast report even suggested that this kind of system could induce the sound of a human voice within a target. This "would be pure terror. A weapon (that) could intrude into the brain of an individual represents a gross invasion of his private life," Begich writes. Begich believes that just because we may have the technology to control the weather and induce changes in adversaries' b
I have been listening to Coast to Coast for many years now and I have to say if it wasn't for the show my dog just might be dead right now. You see I have had this dog Lexi for about 13 years now. Every night the dog would come upstairs to my room and lay on my bed while I listen to the show and surf the web. Well, the other day I was sitting at the computer and my dog came up the stairs. I saw him threw the side of my eye and didn't think anything of it. About 10 seconds later I went to go and pet him. As I turned to look at him my heart fell to the floor. My dog was getting up on the bed just like he did every night but this time the dog was see-through... My mind was made up pretty quick that this was a ghost. Now I listen to the show a lot but nothing ... I mean nothing can prepare you for the first time you see a ghost. I jumped out of my chair and ran downstairs..... I went to grab a flashlight....for what, I have no idea.... But instead I headed straight for the phone. As
Tonight's guest, Dr. Simeon Hein, has some interesting theories about crop circles and their properties. He believes while the circles may be man-made they seem to attract unusual energy patterns and balls of light. Though 2002 got off to a slow start, Andy Thomas of Swirled News.comwrote in an article for Nexus, that it turned out to be a banner year for crop circles, with a set of stunning designs. In one case, a convex triangle design at Sompting, UK was found to contain "a thick but fine white dust," that was later determined to be a particularly pure form of silica. With the publicity for the movie Signs, which opened in August 2002, in high gear, many thought the attention to the phenomenon might increase the possibility for hoaxers. Certainly one of the most controversial and spectacular circles was what was dubbed the "Scary Alien Formation" in a report on the Crop Circle Connector. The formation which appeared in August near Winchester, Hampshire featured a typical
Neil Slade, tonight's guest, is an advocate of using dormant areas of the brain to open up untapped intelligence and abilities. Studying for years with the unorthodox researcher T.D.A. Lingo in a mountainous retreat in Colorado, Slade developed a variety of exercises to enhance brain function. He has particularly focused on an almond-sized organ called the amygdala, which is part of the brain's limbic system (an area that is associated with emotion and motivation). "Self-amygdala stimulation increases activity of the brain's most advanced and evolutionarily most complex structure
the frontal lobes," Slade writes in an article for Viewzone.com. In lieu of being hooked up to electrodes, he has suggested simple visualization exercises such as imagining a feather tickling the amygdala. In a previous appearance on Coast to Coast, he conducted such an experiment over the air. For many this "clicking their amygdala forward" caused "immediate dramatic auditory, visual and physical sensat
Tonight's guest Kevin Mitnick was released from federal prison in 2000 after serving time for cyber crimes. Since then he has turned his life around and now seeks to help citizens and companies from becoming the victim of information thieves. In the book he co-wrote, The Art of Deception he presents a variety of scenarios that con artists have used to swipe valuable facts. Referring to such criminals as "social engineers," Mitnick details how they use inside company lingo to manipulate employees, often over the phone, into giving them safeguarded data. In one chapter he writes about "The Invisible Employee," a woman he calls Shirley who is one of the rapidly growing legion of identity thieves. Shirley poses as "Norma Todd from the Cleveland office," to a customer service employee and through a set of seemingly innocent circumstances is able to finagle the service worker into giving her a voice mailbox. After that is achieved, she continues the deception by speaking with another c
In tandem with Friday Night Open Lines we will be featuring stories and articles from our listeners on a regular basis. Tonight we hear from AJ McGettigan who writes about an unusual alignment of planetary bodies that is occurring tonight (Jan 31-Feb 1): Tonight's event will involve the Earth, Moon, Sun, Neptune, and Jupiter. As midnight approaches across the western hemisphere, Jupiter will climbtoward the mid-heaven as Moon and Sun conjoin at the nadir close toNeptune. In layman's terms, this means that for a brief time five of the10 major bodies in our solar system will be arranged in a straight linewith our planet near the top of the line-up (just below Jupiter). Note: The exact time of the new moon will be well aligned with the longitudeof Hilo, Hawaii, where at 12:48 a.m. local time Jupiter will be at themid-heaven and Neptune will be at the nadir. Astrologically speaking, this event indicates a time when ourmeditations and prayers will be strongly magni
Hal Lindsey, in his recent book The Everlasting Hatred: The Roots of Jihad, writes about what he perceives as an ancient fight-to-the-death conflict between Judeo-Christian and Islamic orders. In an essay on his website, titled The Islamic Mindset, he comments that the US needs to realize "how official Muslim clerics think, or we will perish under nuclear rubble." According to Lindsey, many of these clerics preach that the US and the West are "The Great Satan," and the supreme enemy of Islam. "A nuclear-armed Muslim suicide bomber who kills a few million 'infidels' would be considered among the highest pantheon of Muslim martyrs," Lindsey continues. Though he doesn't believe that all Muslims are our enemies, he says there is particular danger from Muslim men between the ages of 18 to 45. Lindsey advocates the profiling of Muslims and Mosques in the US. "If this is done prudently," he writes, "it will verify who are our Muslim friends are who are our enemies." --L.L.
In an article posted on William Henry's website, he ruminates on the coming of Planet X, which he says the Sumerians referred to as "The Lord." The planet was inhabited by what the Bible called the "Shining Ones," Henry says, and he speculates that these beings had access to mind boggling technologies. "They operated a (star) gateway linking Heaven and Earth. They genetically altered the human body
to operate in this gateway.
They could create weapons of mass destruction and advanced human beings," he writes. Henry connects this stargate or wormhole with the "fiery furnace" of Solomon's Temple written about in the Bible. Sumerian scholar Zecharia Sitchin has also analyzed depictions of what may be this temple/gateway. "Buried deep beneath the sands of Iraq are the secrets of the Shining Ones of Planet X," Henry writes, adding that he thinks Saddam is well aware of such treasures. The return of the roaming planet "centers on the recovery of a technology once housed at Solomon's Te

Benjamin Creme, tonight's guest, first began presenting messages from Maitreya, the "World Teacher," in public forums in 1977. He says that Maitreya had spent the last 2,000 years in a "body of light" at a retreat in the Himalayas, but has now resurrected in a physical form that he "self-created" and that he lives and works in London.
