In the first half, author/researcher Christian Wilde spoke of the medical profession's growing interest in turmeric with thousands of biomedical studies which have shown that the spice can be helpful for some 650 different medical conditions. These include heart disease, stroke, MS and autism. Because the spice can break the blood-brain barrier, it's particularly promising in treating a number of neurological or brain ailments such as bipolar disorder, depression, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's, and PTSD, he added. Known for reducing inflammation, it also seems to regenerate new brain cells, he reported.
An appealing aspect to turmeric is that it doesn't seem to have any side effects. Wilde pointed out that when taking the supplement, it can be absorbed better if it's taken with black pepper or BioPerine. He talked about his research into stem cells for cardiac patients, as well as different approaches for people with macular degeneration. Wilde also touched on his proposal to help combat forest fires in the early stages by sending out a team of retrofitted C-130 aircraft that can bombard an area with fire retardant.
During the latter half, paranormal researcher and philosopher, Jonathan Zap discussed the history of the afterlife revolution and the development of communications with the Other Side. Such interests, he cited, really took off during the Spiritualism movement in the 19th century-- Lincoln's White House even hosted seances, he said. Zap believes that accelerated interests in afterlife communications are a kind of quantum evolutionary shift that runs parallel to technological advancements.
Near-death experiences (NDEs) offer some of the best evidence for an afterlife, he suggested, and a different kind of physics may prevail on the Other Side that is not bound by linear time. Such concepts are explored in The Unobstructed Universe by Steward Edward White, which Zap considers a compelling work on the nature of the afterlife. The dream state can be a portal to communications with the departed, he noted, as well as strong visualization techniques that create a kind of "theater of memory" that can function as a bridge for contact.
During the last half-hour, George replayed his interview of ISS astronauts.
