Last Show Recap

The Serpent & Ancient Mysteries

Fifty miles off the coast of Nantucket, 250 feet beneath the Atlantic, lies the RMS Republic and her secret treasure. As soon as Republic sank, rumors spread of a precious cargo, but the ship has kept her secrets intact for over a century, until now. Life-long treasure hunter Martin Bayerle joined Connie Willis (email) for all four hours to discuss how he has devoted the past 35 years of his life researching the shipwreck and proving the existence of her reputed cargo of 150,000 American Eagle gold coins, a bounty worth a billion dollars in today’s economy, and his quest to recover the it on his second attempt at the Republic.

The Serpent & Ancient Mysteries

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - March 7, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Philip Gardiner, Andre Eggelletion

Described as the Indiana Jones of Great Britain, author Philip Gardiner presented his analysis of ancient mysteries. The worship or cult of the serpent dates back to 5,000 BC and can be seen across cultures, he reported. Shamans, experiencing altered states of consciousness repeatedly saw serpentine images, said Gardiner, who interprets these as archetypal wave forms that embodied life and energy itself. Some cults developed an alchemical "elixir" that contained snake venom and blood which he linked to the Holy Grail.

Mysteries such as Atlantis correspond to other-worldly mental journeys as well, he said, noting that the Sanskrit name for Atlantis means "below the surface" which represents the unconscious. Yet, Gardiner suggested Atlantis could also have been a physical place such as in Mexico, externalized from the mental visions. Interestingly, he does not find evidence for the idea of alien intervention amongst early civilizations. Instead these groups were able to acquire sophisticated knowledge through the altering of their consciousness, he concluded.

Eggelletion Commentary

First half hour guest, author Andre Eggelletion offered commentary on the Dubai Port deal, the US economy, and outsourcing. The port proposal represents the "relentless drive to liberalize trade," he said, and such deals are fueled by the banking fees collected for the transactions. Further, the multinational corporations are outsourcing labor from the US in part to lower the status of the American economy.
