"I'm a guy who just likes to connect the dots," said publisher and writer Marshall Masters, who appeared on Tuesday's program. Through his website, Masters and his associates explore non-mainstream science topics such as Nibiru and crop circles, evaluating a range of research and information.
In the case of the unusual crop formation at Crabwood in 2002, which depicted a large alien face and disc, Masters said there was likely a disinformation effort to alter the understanding of its message. He believes the message was essentially an invitation to begin contact with an off-world race. Further he suggested another such message may be forthcoming this August.
Masters also outlined three possible scenarios as to how the passage of the hypothesized extra solar planet Nibiru could affect our planet:
- Benign Flyby-- doesn't cause damage. This is what researcher Zecharia Sitchin called "a harbinger of good things," Masters said.
- Close Enough to Cause Regional Catastrophes-- but "not enough to knock civilization on its knees." This option, Masters suggested holds the most potential for human growth and evolution.
- Worst Case Scenario-- Nibiru might appear as bright as the sun, and bring worldwide 8 or 9 Richter scale quakes, where the planet would be "wiggling like a Jell-O mold," along with devastating floods and tsunamis. However, Masters believes there would be enough survivors to repopulate the species.
