Cosmology & Quantum Theory

Lisa Garr (email) was joined by authority on fungi, Paul Stamets, who talked about his discovery on how to use mushrooms to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants, catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds, as well as control insect populations, and generally enhance the health of our forests, gardens and bodies.

First hour guest, Dr. Marilyn Wedge, family therapist and ADHD expert, discussed how powerful stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed to treat childhood hyperactivity but rarely help.

Cosmology & Quantum Theory

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - June 8, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Marcus Chown, Alex Jones

Author and consultant to New Scientist magazine, Marcus Chown spoke about cosmology, quantum theory and parallel universes. Quantum theory, which is the study of how very small objects behave, has yielded some intriguing data. For instance, he noted, that an atom can be in two places at once-- the equivalent of a person being in New York and San Francisco at the same time. He also shared that because 99.999% of atoms are actually empty space, you could fit the entire human race into the volume of a sugar cube.

There is still evidence of the "afterglow" of the Big Bang; if our eyes were sensitive to microwaves we'd see the whole night sky glowing, he noted. Interestingly, 98% of the universe is invisible--most of it is "dark matter" which can be surmised by the fact that it is pulling on the visible matter. In addition, Chown pointed out that in 1998 "dark energy" was deduced, and this mysterious property (it pushes mass away from it) accounts for 73% of the universe's weight.

Chown said he feels "incredibly privileged to be alive" right now because of the discoveries that are being made about the universe and its origins. Our universe may be a four-dimensional brane floating in a ten-dimensional universe, and the Big Bang could have occurred when two branes collided, he offered.

Jones Detainment

First hour guest Alex Jones reported on being detained at the Ottawa airport en route to the Bilderberg conference (a secretive meeting of the world's elite). "It was one of the worst experiences of my life," being interrogated by customs agents for 15 hours, he said. Eventually, they admitted to him that someone from the Bilderbergers had ordered Jones to be detained, he revealed. Read more coverage of the incident at prisonplanet.com.
