Last Show Recap

Extreme Athletes & The Paranormal

First half guest Dr. Glen MacPherson has researched and documented a Hum heard by people all over the world. The sound is louder indoors than outdoors, and louder late at night than during the afternoon. In the more serious cases, the Hum can affect quality of life; in a number of documented instances, the torment of the noise has been life-altering. MacPherson shared the latest from his scientific investigation into the phenomenon, which seems to indicate that the culprit may be electromagnetic pollution by Very Low Frequency (VLF) waves. This was followed in the second half by Open Lines.

Extreme Athletes & The Paranormal

Show Archive
Date: Sunday - July 13, 2008
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Maria Coffey

Adventurer and author Maria Coffey discussed the profound paranormal experiences of extreme athletes, such as ghost encounters, precognition, and telepathy. In discussing her research, she noted that, "time and time again, when I was talking to all different kinds of athletes, they would express relief that somebody had actually given them permission to talk about this."

According to Coffey, one type of experience that extreme athletes encountered was a phenomenon dubbed the "third man on the rope," where mountain climbers would sense, or even see, an additional member of their party. This mysterious presence was described as either some sort of "spirit of the mountain" or ghosts of other climbers who had previously succumbed to the elements. Often this entity acts as a guide, she said, sharing one story of an ice climber who had suffered a treacherous accident and was led to safety by following a mysterious blue light in front of him.

Other odd phenomena experienced by extreme athletes included dreams of the future. Coffey recounted tales of base jumpers and mountain climbers who foresaw their own demise or the death of one of their fellow adventurers. Additionally, she talked about "soul riding," a euphoric feeling reported by snow boarders that was experienced and studied by an English vicar who described it as a "raw spiritual experience."

Towards the end of the program, she also discussed telepathy being a part of these paranormal experiences during extreme conditions. Coffey told an amazing story of a culturally diverse mountain crew that encountered a harrowing blizzard. Communicating via radio, they navigated the terrain safely. Upon returning to base camp, they listened to a recording of their conversation and were astonished to hear that they had all been speaking their native languages, yet understood each other perfectly.
