Last Show Recap

Monster Lore

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.

Monster Lore

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - October 22, 2005
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: John Michael Greer

Author and Druid practitioner John Michael Greer shared facts and folklore about vampires, ghosts, werewolves, demons and other creatures from his book, Monsters -- An Investigator's Guide To Magical Beings. According to Greer, the term 'monster' originally meant "that which is revealed or shown forth." For him, a monster is "something that breaks out of the usual definitions of our reality and shows us something unexpected about the world."

Greer described vampires as "predatory ghosts" that get their nourishment by draining the life force from living humans. He said they are stuck (sometimes purposely) between the first and second stages of death and must feed on people to remain there. Greer also talked about some of his Druid beliefs, creatures of faerie, mermaids, transitional ghosts, as well as noted the differences between ghosts and spirits, the latter having never been human.
