In the first half, expert in Mundane Astrology, Mark Lerner spoke about his astrological practice and shared insights for the near future and the year ahead. We just had a new moon in Sagittarius, and Jupiter (which rules Sagittarius) recently stopped going retrograde, he announced. This celestial alignment is a good omen for the long-term big picture, though it doesn't necessarily mean that we'll see an abatement to the war in Ukraine or end to inflation, he remarked. On New Year's Day 2023, Venus will be in conjunction with Pluto-- "this is a powerful cycle that could be helpful when people are bringing in the new year," he noted.
Lerner connected the tumultuous times we've been living through, such as the rise in gun shootings, to the position of slow-moving planets like Pluto and Neptune in relation to the birth chart of the United States. A total eclipse in April 2023 may be connected to intense events at that juncture, he indicated. During the second hour, he provided astrological readings for callers, and explained how a person's sun sign represents their character and vitality, while the moon relates to someone's instincts and skill sets.
In the latter half, hypnotherapist and past life regressionist Dr. Bruce Goldberg talked about a variety of topics, including the Philadelphia Experiment, whether we live in a matrix, antigravity research, and the theory of biocentrism. He recounted details of the alleged 1943 Philadelphia Experiment, where there was an attempt to make a Navy ship, the USS Eldridge, invisible. During the botched experiment, two shipmates jumped overboard, fell into the time continuum, and wound up in 1983, with Montauk experimenter John von Neumann (now 40 years older), who sent the two back through a kind of wormhole, according to the lore.
Could we live in a kind of simulation or matrix? Goldberg pondered, referencing the theory of Nick Bostrom. The beginning of the simulation could be comparable to the start of the universe or the Big Bang, Goldberg suggested. Evidence for the simulation theory might be related to so-called glitches in the matrix, like the Mandela Effect and deja vu experiences, he added. Biocentrism, a model put forth by Robert Lanza, argues that life and consciousness make the universe what it is, and combines the disciplines of physics and biology. Consciousness, not matter, could indeed be the basis for our universe, Goldberg commented.
