During Friday's Open Lines, numbers ruled! We heard from a caller who said nine is a magic number, and offered to convert any number back to nine. George asked him to try his method on 666. Here are the steps:
6 + 6 + 6 = 18
1 + 8 = 9
Nancy from Nevada told George that for the last several years, and on a nearly daily basis, whenever she looks at a clock it's always 11:11. It's probably time to get a new clock! Continuing the numbers theme, Jennifer from Arkansas recounted the story of her adoption. She said her parents were unable to conceive for 13 years, but after her adoption they gave birth to her younger sister nine months later. Curiously, the sister's birthday (16) can be derived by adding the mother's (13) and father's (3) birthdays together.
There was also a "Doom and Gloom" Special Topic line in which George invited people to share how they've overcome various black clouds. One gentleman related how his life was terrible, characterized by the "ups and downs" of depression. Through Radionics (a methond of diagnosis and treatment using the mind) he overcame depression, lost weight, and met his girlfriend. All is well now. Later, a woman who had a curse placed on her described finding dead chickens and bloody crosses in her home, and overcoming this black cloud by reading her Bible and covering herself with a "mental rainbow."
First hour guest, reporter and editor Linda Moulton Howe of Earthfiles.com discussed the "alien" photos taken in Holland by Robbert van den Broeke, as well as presented an interview with UFO investigator Jaime Maussan about the recent videotaped sighting in Mexico. Robbert van den Broeke claims to have felt "a very strong mind around me" that compelled him to grab a digital camera and begin taking pictures of a strange mist as it manifested itself in his home. According to Broeke, the mist became denser until it finally formed the "alien" being seen in the photo below. This event happened for the next two nights when Broeke finally captured the mist being on videotape. Read more here. Linda also discussed the recent UFO sightings in Mexico, and has posted a very detailed analysis with several photos on her website.
