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.
I take photographs of architecture in Virginia and North Carolina. I recently visited a Revolutionary War era home in North Carolina and took dozens of photographs. When we were looking them over recently we noticed a ghostly image in the dormer window of the home. No one lives in this home now and there are no pictures or furniture in the upstairs bedrooms, which makes the image very disturbing to us. An old tobacco farmer owns the home and keeps beef cattle in the field surrounding the home. The old road bed next to the home was originally an Indian path prior to becoming a wagon road in the mid-18th century. The Battle of Guilford Courthouse was fought near this home.
