Night Vision UFOs

Appearing during the first hour and a half of the program, UFO researcher Ed Grimsley was joined by technology analyst Charles Ostman to discuss incredible UFO sightings and battles seen using night vision goggles. "They're so unbelievable that I want the world to know they're there and I want the world to see the truth," said Grimsley, who introduced Ostman to the concept of using night vision goggles to spot UFOs. Ostman described his own night vision UFO sighting, recounting three craft flying in formation, tailed by two craft that cris-crossed behind them, eventually forming a five object cluster. The objects, he said, were "round, hard-edged, metallic looking things" that cruised across the sky in a little over two seconds. Ostman asserted that without the goggles, he "wouldn't have seen anything at all." Grimsley detailed the different UFOs he has seen over the course of his night vision observations, ranging from fast delta-shaped craft to oval-shaped objects bot ... More »

New Technolgy & Geopolitics

Appearing during the first three hours, 'Historian of the future' Charles Ostman discussed coming technologies and how they affect geopolitics. An important growth area will be zero gravity environments in space, which can be used to manufacture materials such as crystallized proteins, and specific molecular structures, he detailed. Yet, he warned that Russia, China and India have formed an alliance to collaborate on their space programs, which could put America at a disadvantage.The damaged U.S. economy could be bolstered through the development of green technologies, nanotechnology and synthetic biology, he argued. For example, a process called "bio remediation" uses modified microbes and biological agents to neutralize toxic dump sites-- materials might even be harvested from such sites for a profit, said Ostman. He also addressed the subject of junk DNA (sequences of the genome which have no known functions). This "junk" could be the footprint of an intelligent species ... More »

Nano Night

Journalist Douglas Mulhall and 'historian of the future,' Charles Ostman addressed ways in which nanotechnology and other cutting edge approaches can be used to protect and evolve human existence. Mulhall, who appeared first, noted that the St. Louis area (where the New Madrid fault is located) is possibly due for a huge quake, and that buildings aren't prepared for it. New nanotech applications in aerogel products could be placed in walls and windows, allowing them to withstand a powerful quake or tornado, he detailed. Ostman, who appeared during the last two hours, enthused over new brain research. He is particularly interested in developments occurring at the boundary between biophysics, quantum physics and consciousness. ... More »
