Last Show Recap

The Third Wave

In 1989, Steve and Dawn Hess headed out to the Mojave Desert, anticipating a quiet camping trip. But when they were kidnapped by what they believed to be a swarm of alien beings, the shock and pain of the experience changed their lives forever. Author Ron Felber joined Jimmy Church (email) to update us on the case and to welcome the Hesses for their first live interview. First hour guest, director, actor, and musician Vic Mignogna spoke about his webseries Star Trek Continues.

The Third Wave

Show Archive
Date: Monday - June 18, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Alvin Toffler, Howard Bloom

Futurist Alvin Toffler presented his thesis that we've entered the "Third Wave," in which a knowledge-based economy has replaced the industrial age. Yet our institutions, such as schools, have become increasingly obsolete and still reflect the modalities of the industrial age, he said.

The economic structure has changed and become more invisible-- "prosumers," (a term he and his wife Heidi coined) consume what they produce through various activities, many of which they perform without pay.

Toffler forecast that in 30-50 years from now, there'll be a gigantic global conflict over the definition of what it means to be human. We can expect that religious and political viewpoints will clash on issues surrounding androids, clones and other future variants. The Fourth Wave, he predicted, will deal with biology and space.

OBEs & the Mind

In the first hour, author Howard Bloom offered a scientific explanation for OBEs. Out of body experiences and astral projection are constructs of the mind and could be compared to conditions such as the phantom limb syndrome, he suggested.
