  • About the show

    Ian Punnett talked with futurist Dr. Paul Guercio and SDI (Star Wars) physicist Dr. George Hart about the MERLIN Project, a computer-based forecasting technology that uses specific dates -- the beginning points of major life events -- to produce a graphical image of fluctuations in a person's future.

    According to Guercio, big events happen at the same time for "time twins" who share a common birth date. As evidence, Guercio pointed to the similarities of the Timetraks for Art Bell and General Tommy Franks. Though still in its infancy, the MERLIN Project forecasting technology could one day be used to create a kind of "Farmer's Almanac" handbook of the biggest upcoming moments in a person's life, Hart explained.

    Later in the show, Guercio discussed the Iraq War, Timetraks for Elian Gonzales and Florida Governor Jeb Bush, as well as revealed Astrology's inability to predict exact circumstances. The guests have also made available for Coast listeners a free PDF report titled How the Future Happens.

    Futurist Paul Guercio and physicist Dr. George Hart coined the term Timetraks to describe the output of their MERLIN Project software.The code was custom designed by a team of SDI/StarWars physicists to capture moments of what Guercio and Hart like to call "heightened-eventfulness." These uncommon moments of future activity, where important events will likely occur, are generated by mathematically capturing a particularly propitious past moment, like the beginning of a relationship or the start of a new job and applying a precise formula of cyclic intervals to that past 'frozen' moment.

    The result is a graphical image of all the future moments, when echoes of the original moment will again be heard. MERLIN Timetraks are a lot like pages of sheet music from a very unique and one-of-a-kind symphony that can predict the timetable of future events.
