A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.
In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.
On Tuesday April 2nd, I was on a jeep tour of Sedona, AZ, with my family and one other family. There were 8 of us in all. We stopped at an area named Chicken Point where I took some photos of the beautiful rock formations and sky. Later that day I was reviewing the pictures and this one stood out. The time was approximately 3pm, and the Sun was still high, so this is not a light trick. There were no smudges on any other photographs. I shared this with a friend who is a professional photographer and she declared that this is not an artifact. She claims we captured one of the famous Sedona "energy vortexes" on camera. Chicken Point is not known as a primary vortex location, but several knowledgable people sometimes include it in their list of possible energy sites. The camera was a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS.
