Last Show Recap

The Hydristor/Open Lines

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.

The Hydristor/Open Lines

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - September 11, 2004
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Tom Kasmer, Hank Cohen, Ellen Muth

Inventor Tom Kasmer briefly discussed his patented Hydristor, which he describes as an "infinitely variable hydrostatic transmission." Kasmer believes this new technology will revolutionize hydraulics and sees an immediate application in the automobile industry. The name of his invention is a combination of the words "hydraulic" and "transistor." It is currently being tested with a couple of large manufacturers. If all goes according to Kasmer's plan, vehicle fuel economy will be dramatically improved (imagine SUVs that get 100 mpg) and acceleration times cut in half. Due to technical difficulties, Art terminated the interivew early and went to Open Lines.

Dead Like Me

During the first hour, Hank Cohen, president of MGM Television Entertainment, and actress Ellen Muth talked about the Showtime original series Dead Like Me. The dark comedy/drama looks at mortality through the eyes of Georgia "George" Lass (Ellen Muth) and a team of fellow grim reapers. Cohen and Muth said the ultimate message of the show is to live life to the fullest.
