In the first half of Sunday's show, author and motivational speaker David Essel exposed the myth of positive thinking. Self-realization, and the real "secret to success" requires much more than positive thinking, affirmations or vision boards, he argued. In the latter half, comparative mythologist David Talbott and Australian physicist Wallace Thornhill updated their lifelong investigation of "the Electric Universe" that offers a revolutionary view of the cosmos.
An excavation and restoration of a 200 year old pioneer cemetery has been underway since 2009. This fall, the crew uncovered and restored an ancient stone wall as documented on our website. During the excavations, a few odd stones were found, and this one has left us scratching our heads. It has some strange markings that we are unsure of the origin. The area was settled by Scottish settlers, mostly from the Outer Hebrides Islands of Scotland, so one theory that we have is that it is Ogham writing? We'd love to make contact with an expert in that type of stone writing.
