Expert on the American prophet Edgar Cayce, Greg Little discussed new discoveries in the search for Atlantis, mounds in ancient America, as well as findings in Egypt. He related the research of British science writer Andrew Collins who found an opening into a cave complex that extends underneath Giza, Egypt. Collins has concluded that the pyramids on the Giza Plateau correlate to the constellation Cygnus, rather than Orion, as other researchers have claimed.
Little shared some of Edgar Cayce's readings on Atlantis, and talked about the organization A.R.E. built around his work. Cayce believed Atlantis was a large empire that stretched from the Straits of Gibraltar to the Gulf of Mexico. Its inhabitants were able to generate electricity by focusing the sun's rays through crystals, and had flying machines, elevators, submarines, and hi-tech houses. Their civilization, Cayce said, suffered three great cataclysms-- in the years 50,000 BC, 28,000 BC, and 10,000 BC. He also thought they kept an archive of their knowledge, the now hidden Hall of Records.
Little talked about some intriguing underwater structures photographed off Bimini (see article below) that he's been researching. These remnants might have been buildings from a booming maritime port from around 10,000 BC, he said. He also touched on his work finding crashed planes in the Bermuda Triangle, and his long term study of Native American mounds, some of which date back as far as 3800 BC. Where some of these ancient mound builders came from is a complete mystery, he noted.
First hour guest, Prof. Bart Kosko talked about efforts to create an artificial brain, which are said to be 10 years away. Such a brain, would not approach the complexity of a human's but might be useful for medical/pharmaceutical testing, he said. A future device called a "brain comb" made with nanotubes may be able to take a kind of brain print of memories that would be a unique identifier similar to a fingerprint, he added.
Dr. Greg Little shares a couple of images related to his explorations off Bimini. The small Bahamas island of Bimini, located in the Bermuda Triangle, has been scrutinized for archaeological remains, possibly related to Atlantis. The first image is an aerial view of the Bimini Road, showing how it was probably used as an enclosed breakwater and harbor, when sea levels were slightly lower, around 3000 BC. The second photo is a still image of one of the underwater square formations about 4 miles off Bimini, taken by a remote video—© 2009 by G & Lora Little. More from Greg here.
