Author and filmmaker Sydney Kirkpatrick discussed his research into the American prophet Edgar Cayce. He had exclusive access to Cayce's personal papers and trance readings, including the names of people who received readings, such as George Gershwin, Gloria Swanson, Tesla and Edison. Cayce provided thousands of readings in a trance state-- his sources varied, but they included deceased spirits and angelic beings, Kirkpatrick detailed.
Many of his medical readings turned out to have great accuracy-- Kirkpatrick described the case of a boy whose life was saved at the last minute by following Cayce's recommendation of taking belladonna. His health readings of individuals often contained additional information related to such topics as science, Atlantis, and earth changes. The Atlanteans suffered three cataclysms, brought about by their own technology, he noted.
Cayce said life does exist on other planets, but we wouldn't recognize it as life as we understand it.He spoke of an antigravity device that uses rotating magnetic discs, and described how to make a "Stansell" motor-- a perpetual motion machine.During a 1934 reading, he predicted a time when the western portion of the United States would be broken off, and there'd be a pole shift. He cited the name of John Peniel (a reincarnation of John the Apostle), as being a person who'd be around at this time to usher in the changes. Some have claimed that the author Jon Peniel could be this person.
First hour guest, researcher of ancient artifacts, Richard Shafsky commented on the Smithsonian's new display of a crystal skull. The skull in their exhibit does have some indicators that modern tools were used on it, but there are at least four skulls that are definitely ancient, he said. Shafsky also related new information he derived from the skull he works with-- there is an increased possibility of seismic activity along the coast of the Pacific Northwest, and people should be prepared.
