Last Show Recap

Manic America

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.

Manic America

Show Archive
Date: Monday - May 30, 2005
Host: George Noory
Guests: Peter Whybrow, Gerald Pitts

During the middle 2 hours, Director of the Neuropsychiatric Institute at UCLA, Peter Whybrow, M.D., explored what he calls the "American Mania" syndrome. Americans, he said, are particularly predisposed to being stressed out, overworked and manic. They push themselves to the edge with a 24/7 lifestyle and are overloaded with information and material goods.

But humans are not biologically programmed for such a pace, he pointed out, and this way of living is taking its toll on the populace-- with such problems as obesity, high blood pressure and depression on the rise. We need to help people retool and rethink their lives, he said.

Along those lines, he shared the "Rules of Tom," which were developed by an entrepreneur, who sought to get control over his life. They are:1) Time is a key possession. 2) Use technology wisely. 3) Learn about your appetites. 4) Be physically active.

The 4th hour featured a replay of the Prophet Yahweh segment which originally aired on Friday, May 26th.

Jim Morrison Alive?

First half-hour guest Gerald Pitts shared his claim that Jim Morrison is alive and well and living as a cowboy in the Pacific Northwest. He said he first met him in 1997 when he showed up at a rodeo, and then later discovered he lived at a neighboring ranch raising horses. Pitts said that Morrison told him there was a conspiracy to kill himself, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, and that related to why he faked his death. Pitts has produced a video/website about this remarkable story.
