Alien experiencers, the Giza Pyramid as a possible power plant, and the dangers of a solar minimum were among the fascinating topics explored this past week on Coast to Coast AM. And, here at the C2C website, we told you about a real-life 'flying saucer' that was created in Romania, new developments surrounding the Shroud of Turin, and an outrageous house in California that was adorned with two massive emojis. Check out our round-up of highlights from the past week ... In Coast You Missed It.
Could the Great Pyramid of Giza have been a power station for ancient Egyptians? This intriguing question was explored by J.J. Hurtak and Desiree Hurtak on Wednesday night's program. They detailed their on-site research at the Giza Plateau and noted a number of elements which seemed to suggest that the complex was designed to facilitate hydrogen power production. The Hurtaks also noted a number of curious ancient objects, such as lamps and saltwater batteries, which appear to indicate that the Egyptians were both aware of and harnessing electricity.
Human ingenuity was on full display this week by way of two stories showcasing fantastic inventions that have recently been developed. First, researchers in Japan unveiled a robotic tail designed for humans. The bizarre-looking augmentation, they say, can improve a person's balance and agility. Later in the week, a pair of engineers in Romania made headlines when they unveiled a genuine 'flying saucer' that actually works and very well could be the future of spaceflight thanks to its remarkable maneuverability.
To many people, the term 'alien abduction' conjures unsettling visions of sinister ETs conducting scientific experiments on unwitting humans. However, on Tuesday night's program, hypnotherapist Mary Rodwell put forward the possibility that it is actually a much more positive phenomenon that could be aimed at awakening us to the presence of our proverbial space brothers and sisters. To that end, she shared insights from a number of individuals who reported encountering friendly aliens or undergoing profound personal transformations from their experience.
A pair of iconic objects from the past popped up in the news this past week, beginning with the legendary Shroud of Turin, with its authenticity further plunged into uncertainty when a team of researchers cast significant doubt on a landmark 1988 radiocarbon dating test on the cloth which 'proved' that it was a medieval hoax. Meanwhile, over in Egypt, the famed gilded coffin of King Tutankhamun was removed from its tomb for the first time since its discovery nearly a century ago as part of an ambitious restoration project.
While solar flares often cause concern here on Earth, former CBS-TV reporter Hugh Simpson cautioned that the sun may have something even more worrisome in store for us. On Monday night's program, he discussed the solar minimum, a condition in which is there is a significant lack of sunspots and, in turn, a cooling of the sun. Although this is a normal occurrence during the 11-year solar cycle, Simpson warned that some researchers suspect that we may be entering a period known as the 'Grand Solar Minimum' which takes place every 350-400 years and can usher in a decades-long Ice Age.
In an example of the idiom 'truth is stranger than fiction,' a house in California wound up at the center of controversy this past week after its owner painted the building hot pink and adorned it with two massive emojis. If that were not weird enough, neighbors asserted that the garish sight was brought on by a community dispute with the homeowner over short term rentals and that the Pepto Bismol-colored building's taunting yellow faces were purposely painted on the house as an act of revenge.
