Peter Levenda discussed his new book Stairway to Heaven, which connects occult knowledge across time, civilizations, and secret societies. The number seven and its relation to heaven or the after life is repeatedly seen across cultures, he said. For example, a map of seven stars was created by Chinese alchemists as a ladder to heaven.

Various cultures viewed travel to heaven or space as a kind of spiritual transformation, and they engaged in purification, meditation and prayer to raise the body up to a higher level, Levenda noted. A common source for these themes and practices might have come from visitations of ETs or spirit beings, he added.

He also spoke about the occult investigations of Aleister Crowley, who invoked the spirit of 'Lam,' an odd looking entity. Crowley made a drawing of Lam, which bears some resemblance to the modern "grey" aliens. Levenda said he is delving into Free Masonry for his next book.

The third hour of the show featured Open Lines.

In the last hour, the late George Carlin was recalled with a 1999 interview with Art Bell.

Last Show Recap

Occult Parallels

In the first half of Sunday's show, author and motivational speaker David Essel exposed the myth of positive thinking. Self-realization, and the real "secret to success" requires much more than positive thinking, affirmations or vision boards, he argued. In the latter half, comparative mythologist David Talbott and Australian physicist Wallace Thornhill updated their lifelong investigation of "the Electric Universe" that offers a revolutionary view of the cosmos.
