Special guest host Art Bell returned to the Friday program for a night of Open Lines. On his specially designated Time Travel line, a variety of callers presented their forays both into the past and the future. Nunnehi (Cherokee for "The Little People") called from Sacramento, and spoke of previewing her death, along a chain link fence, where she went through a receiving line. Each time she shook a person's hand she would instantly know all about that person.
A woman recounted stumbling on some tucked away 8mm films made by her father and felt as though she was transported back to the 1960's. She theorized that a puff of air from that time period may have entered her nostrils when she opened the film box. Later, Cross from Minnesota, said he had been taken to the year 2045 by an entity named Malachi. It was a tribal setting, where "technology has washed away," he said.
Another caller told an intriguing tale of attending a dinner given by a doctor and being shown a contraption which he described as looking like a "triangular phone booth." After entering it, he found himself inexplicably transported to the middle of a forest, where he stayed for several minutes before returning in the machine.
Towards the end of the show, a man from Kansas City related an incident where he was hit by a bolt of lightning 44 years ago, and was knocked out of his body. He said it was if he had gone back in time, and was looking down at himself just prior to the accident. "I actually saw the electrical pulse come in through the phone line and I watched in very slow motion as the phone line began to melt and the lightning came out of the phone and struck me," he explained. "Such a large electromagnetic occurrence just might do something exactly like that," Art commented.
These are photos of a new 1,000 foot double loop that I just built on my property. It has truly amazing properties which I will try to explain on the show tonight. [The first photo shows the construction phase, the second after it was completed.]
