Using history, astrology, and synchronicity theory, author and researcher David Wilcock discussed how there is a hidden architecture played out in cycles, guiding humanity toward enlightenment and spiritual progress. History repeats in precise cycles, he said, citing as an example the accurate prediction of a French astrologer in 1961 that the revolt Joan of Arc pulled off in the 1400s would repeat as a student-lead revolution in France within a few days. This 539 year cycle may have been referenced as a parable by Jesus, when he spoke of forgiving your brother "seven times 77 times," he continued.
Wilcock also found parallels between Roman and American history, the first Punic War to WWI, the second Punic War to WWII, Carthage to Germany, and Hannibal to Hitler. "Reality is not real. We're in a hologram. There's a story that's repeating, and it keeps repeating until we master the lesson it's teaching us," he contended. There are also larger cycles of 720 years (1/3 the age of the Zodiac) which correspond to ancient mystery teachings, he noted.
'End times' are not relegated strictly to Christian prophecy but referenced in over 30 ancient cultures that all indicated that we're heading into a golden age, but have go through a dark period first, he said. People are fulfilling a cosmic blueprint, older than time itself, which is meant to steer us into a beautiful golden age where we'll have such things as stargate travel, antigravity technology, and ascension in which humans transform into light bodies, he proclaimed.

First hour guest, the co-founder of ConceptLabs, Peter Cochrane, gave an update on artificial intelligence and technology. On the horizon are wearable technologies such as the smartwatch, and wearable cameras recording everyday activities. Speaking of his individual cell phone, he remarked, "there is more computing power, more memory, on this mobile phone than was on the planet in 1956," and that is the scale of the great change that has taken place. He also noted how every new technology that comes along displaces people and causes mayhem, but then transforms society and creates new types of employment and opportunities.
Colorado researchers have created a type of "ball lightning" in the laboratory, making clouds of plasma emerge from a solution. The mysterious phenomenon of ball lightning has been observed in nature, and it's hoped that this research may shed on light on what causes this little understood spectacle. More at BBC News.
