Science & the Paranormal

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 joins George Knapp to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligence. In the second half, veteran journalist Chris Taylor will discuss 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.

From 6-10pm PT, Art Bell: Somewhere in Time returns to 6/23/95 for one of Richard C. Hoagland's first show appearances. He addresses NASA's cover-up of the 'Face on Mars.' Listen here.

Science & the Paranormal

Show Archive
Date: Sunday - June 12, 2005
Host: Art Bell
Guests: Dr. Claude Swanson

MIT and Princeton trained physicist Dr. Claude Swanson shared his view that the present scientific paradigm doesn't take into account evidence for the paranormal. He said he spent many years researching the field, including using himself as a subject in such areas as firewalking, remote viewing and healing. Discussing the ability of firewalking, he suggested that subtle energy builds up to a certain level as it couples in the mind, and the "laws of electromagnetism start to become altered." This could change a person's frequency and allow them to tap into different realities.

In his studies of Hopi prophecy and their timeline, Swanson found Western man was depicted with their head and body separate, indicating they were cut off from their spirituality. He believes that scientific exploration of the paranormal encourages spirituality to be introduced to Western culture. If we don't reconnect with spirit, Hopi prophecy indicates a catastrophe is coming within the next decade, he said.

Swanson also shared his research into ghostly phenomena. Orbs, which he said can sometimes be seen with the naked eye by using a bright camera flash, may represent dead souls or energy emanations from a person having an OBE. He also discussed energy healers and said he's been particularly impressed with accounts he's heard about John of God from Brazil, who was written about in the book The Miracle Man. Art shared that one of his sisters moved to Brazil to "be near John of God." For more, view graphics that Swanson sent in.
