According to scientist and author, Dean Radin, magic is a natural aspect of reality, and each of us can tap into this power with diligent practice. He joined George Knapp to discuss how, after spending the last forty years conducting controlled experiments, he has demonstrated that thoughts are things, we can sense others' emotions and intentions from a distance, and intuition is more powerful than we thought. He described science as the best way we have of testing theories, and magic as "an application of an esoteric worldview," in other words, the use of the mind or will to affect reality.
Radin says that what for centuries has been referred to as "magic" can be tested and replicated in a laboratory setting, and has been hundreds or even thousands of times over the last few decades. This is revealed by a study and comparison of the statistics produced by repeated trials. There is still resistance from many scientists to study these subjects, although Radin says he and others he works with are "more interested in the phenomena than the taboo." Radin believes that perhaps one in a million people have a strong psychic gift, but that anyone can develop their abilities through techniques such as meditation.
The F-117 Nighthawk stealth attack jet is still a flying machine like none ever created. The sinister-looking aircraft that was born in top secrecy still has many stories to tell even a decade after its official 'retirement.' In the second half, aviation expert Tyler Rogoway discussed this most mysterious of aircraft, its history, and why it may still be in use, as well as other deep space and air defense issues. Developed in a flurry of stealth innovation in the 1970s by the Lockheed aircraft company, the F-117 was kept flying "for decades" and now may be used as training aircraft simulating adversaries, converted into unmanned planes, or as test platforms for new stealth technology.
Rogoway said that the United States’ latest stealth fighter aircraft (the F22 and F35) "are a massive quantum leap over the 117" and allow the pilots to act almost as battlefield commanders in the field with all the information available to make quick decisions. He characterized China as the most advanced adversary presently, and that their defense takes advantage of America’s main weakness, which is the limited range of our fighters. Rogoway believes that the famous "Tic Tac" UFO incident was an actual event, and that the publicly released report "read exactly like" others he has seen on non-mysterious incidents. He speculated that the object may represent some as-yet-unrevealed advanced technology that has been developed by the military but leaves the door open for other possibilities.
