Appearing during the middle two hours, authors Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman discussed the phenomenon of frequently seeing 11:11 on clocks, and the synchronicities of numbers. For instance, sometimes when people wake up and look at the clock, it's often the exact same time every night.
Jones suggested that such synchronicities could be an exterior influence, such as a guardian angel giving a time prompt, or it could be the "matrixing" of the brain. Flaxman defined matrixing as the brain's propensity for pattern recognition.
Synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, link an objective experience with a subjective response, and the more this occurs, the more we take notice, Jones noted. Time prompts such as 11:11, and other combinations like 4:44, can serve as a reminder to live in the present, be alert, or to slow down, they offered. This kind of message is more important than the numbers themselves, Jones said.
The last hour of the show featured a replay of the 4th hour from the 3/22/07 Secret Door special.
Comet Lulin Update
First hour guest, physicist James McCanney talked about the arrival of comet Lulin. The comet, which has a green tail, is moving in a retrograde orbit (opposite the movement of the planets) at around 60,000 mph. During its direct alignment with Earth, Feb. 24-28th, it might contribute to severe weather, he said.
