Astrologer and seer Michael St.Clair debuted on the show, sharing his visions of the future. He said he derives his predictions from astrological analysis, intuitive and linguistic perceptions, and "deeply placed information sources," including guidance from the Nordics (off-world beings). The economic down cycle will actually last till around 2020, though we might see some spikes of false hope in the next six months, he said.
Massive climate and earth changes, including quakes, volcanoes, and flooding are coming, and though disastrous, these events will act as a catalyst for change, St.Clair stated. The changes will also lead to increased migration and scarcity of resources, fueling social unrest, he detailed. Within the next four years, he foresees the death of the dollar and other currencies, along with the collapse of institutions such as schools and government.
People will have to reinvent the way they live, forming self-sufficient small communities, "radiant zones" with micro-economies, he said, adding that this trend will actually be a positive development in humanity's evolution. Most humans are currently functioning at a reduced level, as if firing on only 2 out of 12 cylinders, said St.Clair. If people can still their minds from the thought process, a higher intelligence kicks in, which could point the way toward such things as new forms of energy, he noted.
First hour guest, consumer privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht reacted to a plan in Britain to hack into home users' computers with a technique called "remote searching." Such anti-privacy trends often get their start in England, before moving over to the States, she cautioned. Albrecht recommended the search engine ixquick.com, which unlike Google, only keeps search records for 48 hours.
Through a new fossil study, scientists have learned that hundreds of thousands of years ago, Australia was home to giant versions of its current wildlife. Such extinct "megafauna" included koalas weighing over 60 pounds, and kangaroos that were 10 ft. tall. More at The Independent.
