Author Whitley Strieber, a supporter of alternative concepts through his Unknown Country website, talked about his new non-fiction book Solving the Communion Enigma, and how various anomalous experiences are interrelated. He addressed the recent spate of unusual and mysterious sounds heard in various locations around the world such as Malaysia and Sweden. The roaring noises are possibly connected to earthquake activity, he conjectured, adding that he and his wife Anne recently heard an unexplained trumpet-type sound at their home.
In talking about UFOs, he cited the book Unconventional Flying Objects, by the late NASA scientist Paul Hill, as presenting some particularly convincing case reports such as two Pan Am pilots witnessing objects flying over Chesapeake Bay. Enigmas such as UFOs, crop circles, and close encounters aren't just part of our physical reality but are really "penetrations from another reality...and represent a moment when you come to the shadow line between realities, and this is why we not only see aliens in that context but our own dead," he mused.
Regarding the aliens or visitors, he suggested that rather than communicating with us, "they're changing us...what we're seeing here is a presence which is engaged in a creative process on this planet" that is part of our evolution. Strieber believes that humanity and Earth are part of a larger civilization "which is tending us for whatever reasons. I think it has to do with the creation and schooling of souls," he said.
Election & Voting Issues
First hour guest, researcher Bev Harris discussed the presidential race and voting issues. The only way the public can confirm voting results are authentic is through a transparent process such as paper ballots-- computers and electronic voting machines can't be secured from their own administrators, she commented. The votes also should be tabulated at the precinct in order to preserve the chain of custody-- there were some problems in this regard in the New Hampshire primary, she noted.
Rocks that landed in Morocco during a meteor shower originated from Mars, scientists have confirmed. A fireball was spotted in the sky six months ago, but it wasn't until December that the meteorites were discovered. More here.
