In the first half of the show, investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts talked about the economy, jobs, and sustainable living. While the Commerce Dept. has reported that consumer spending is up for the last few months, she was skeptical over their figures, and noted that unemployment is still a big problem in America. "Our labor is still significantly overpriced versus global labor, and we've now outsourced enough capital and enough manufacturing and jobs that there's a tremendous adjustment that has to occur," she said. The bubble is over, and we're seeing "the grinding of the gears-- now the permanent adjustments need to be made," she added.
Fitts advocated food as a growth business-- "there's a real market here, and it could produce high quality jobs...if you look at the whole food chain from farming to restaurants." She also spoke about the importance of practicing preventative healthcare by consuming nutritious/healthy foods. For those interested in eating locally, and eco-agriculture, she recommended Edible Communities and Acres USA.
In the latter half, investigative mythologist William Henry discussed symbolic aspects of Egypt, Easter, and 2012. Regarding the discovery of a 3,500 year-old "door to the afterlife" found in Egypt (see below), what we're really dealing with is "the ancient Egyptian science of immortality," he commented, adding that the Egyptians referred to the afterlife as the "Dimension of the Blessed." The door, made of red granite which is loaded with pure quartz crystal, holds tremendous energy, and was viewed as being like a gateway or stargate, he noted.
Maya prophecy says a stargate will open in 2012, but Henry views this as a time of transformation rather than calamity, where people may gain access to "primordial sacred science." He also talked about the mythological underpinnings of Easter with its notion of resurrection. The goddess Ishtar (Easter) of ancient Babylon made a descent into the underworld, and used a special helmet to travel there, he detailed.
A 3,500 year-old door to the afterlife has been unearthed in Egypt. The door had been part of the tomb for Queen Hatshepsut's chief minister, and was said to serve as a threshold for the deceased to interact with the living. More here.
