Solar Cycles

Public interest attorney Steven M. Druker, as executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, initiated a lawsuit that forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods. In the first half, he discussed what he considers to be the biggest scientific fraud of our age - how politically appointed administrators have covered up the warnings of their own scientists about the risks of GMO foods.

In the latter half, Rosemary Ellen Guiley, a leading expert in the metaphysical and paranormal fields, talked about nightmares and dreams, and the messages they convey.

Solar Cycles

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - May 19, 2009
Host: George Noory
Guests: Gregory Sams, Maurice Cotterell

Author Maurice Cotterell spoke about the solar minimum and the historical implications of sunspot activity on civilization. The movement of the planet Mercury causes the winding up of the sun's magnetic fields, which then leads to the generation of sunspots, he explained. There are three cycles of sunspots that occur over 11 1/2 years, 187 years, and 18,139 years, and certain ancient cultures were aware of these periods, he contended. For instance, the Mayans foresaw that their culture would die out around 70 AD, because a low sunspot period would lead to decreased fertility and a mini-ice age, he noted. If our current solar inactivity continues, it's possible it could counter the effects of global warming.

Solar activity can also affect personality and behavior, said Cotterell. He noted studies which correlated increased number of accidents occuring during periods of higher magnetic activity on the sun. Particularly strong X-flares from the sun might damage our satellites, and because we don't have a back-up system in place, communications could be knocked out on a global scale, he warned.

In discussing his study of Mayan prophecy, Cotterell disputed the idea of 2012 as an end date for civilization. Yes, the Mayans had four calendrical cycles that returned to 0 on this date, but they also had four other cycles that continued on, he said. Dec. 21, 2012 just marks the end of a 144,000 day cycle, he added.

Sun as Living Being

Appearing in the first half-hour, cultural pioneer and philosopher Gregory Sams talked about his concept of the sun as a living, sentient entity. It's "a highly conscious being on a level that is inconceivable to us," he said.

The Missing Link?

A 47-million-year-old fossil of a primate may be the long sought missing link between humans and apes. Nicknamed "Ida," the lemur-like creature had opposable thumbs, and fingernails instead of claws. More here.

Appearing briefly at the start of the 5/19/09 show, researcher Michael Cremo downplayed the finding, and suggested that evidence for humans existing millions of years ago has been suppressed.
