Archaeologist Stephen Mehler shared his research in the field of Egyptology, which he has studied for over thirty-five years. He described working with a teacher from Egypt named Hakim, "an indigenous wisdom keeper" who shared the civilization's oral history with him. Hakim said that there are natural cycles, and that we are nearing the end of a cycle that began 65,000 years ago.
Mehler believes that the Great Pyramid at Giza was built in three stages, with the original work begun more than 20,000 years ago. It was built not by aliens, but through a higher consciousness of the people of Khemit (earlier name for Egypt) that employed anti-gravitic techniques involving crystals, water and sound, he said. But around 11,000 years ago, he contends there was a worldwide cataclysm (as documented in the books Cataclysm! and Catastrophobia) and after that consciousness began to devolve.
Religions such as Judaism, Christianity and Islam all developed out of Egyptian thought, said Mehler, who also noted that secret societies were first begun in Egypt. Groups such as the Illuminati, a brotherhood of light, that was originally positive, have in later years become infiltrated by members who seek to keep people in darkness, he commented. Mehler also discussed his long-standing involvement with the Rosicrucian Order, a mystical tradition that has artifacts dating back to ancient Egypt.

Appearing during the first half-hour, author James Chiles commented on the recent Greek airline disaster. Something went wrong with the plane's oxygen system, and he speculated it could have been caused by some type of electrical failure. He noted that at the plane's altitude it would only take a few minutes for passengers to gradually lose consciousness as they lost their air supply.
