As an abductee with 95 percent conscious recall of his experiences, Jim Sparks, talked about how over the years he went from resistor to cooperator with the alien beings who abducted him. His interactions were with two different types of ’grey’ aliens, he said-- short "worker bees" who were half-robotic, and taller (4 to 5 ft. tall) biological beings with large heads and eyes, and skinny necks, torsos, and arms. They communicate via telepathy, and the taller beings are able to think 10-100 times faster than humans, as well as hold hundreds of thoughts in their mind at the same time, he detailed. Their advanced scientific abilities (such as being able to move through walls) can seem like to magic to us, and they only can be seen when they want us to see them, he continued.
The beings have unfettered access to our minds-- i.e. we have no private thoughts from them, and that is extremely intimidating, and hard to be around, he commented. However, over time, he eventually learned to adapt to being around them, and his fears and discomfort lessened. He’s convinced that the aliens have conquered death, though they can be killed. Intriguingly, Sparks revealed they have the ability to time travel. He had a small scale experience of it himself, when he was brought back after an abduction and the clock showed a time that was earlier than when he was taken. In the first years of his abductions, Sparks reported that he was threatened by odd government agents, telling him to keep quiet about his experiences.
The aliens have their own agenda which deals with concerns over the creatures they seeded on our planet (including humans), Sparks noted, adding that various agreements humanity made with them have all been broken (by us) over time. The aliens have suggested "amnesty" be offered to those who have deliberately kept their presence secret from the public, so the truth can come out, he said. Their hybrid program, he explained, was successful in creating human beings that are more intelligent, environmentally sensitive, and telepathic, and they could potentially populate the planet, if something happened to us.
Student Loan Reform Bill
First hour guest, activist historian Webster Tarpley discussed Senator Elizabeth Warren and Cong. John Tierney’s proposed bill on student loan reform. They propose that beginning July 1st (when student loan interest rates are set to double) that the interest rate be dropped to .75, the same as what banks can borrow from the Federal Reserve. Tarpley noted that while Wall Street doesn’t like this reduction, it wouldn’t cost the taxpayer anything, would make education more affordable, and actually help the economy. He further suggested that graduating classes of 2013 turn their graduation ceremonies into a rally in favor of the Warren-Tierney bill.
After a late start, and a "ten minute break" that lasted more than a half hour, the NJ Senate committee on gun control decides to cut off public comment on the proposed gun control bills at 4 o’clock. The chairman and most of the committee then refuse to honor the pledge of allegiance. This took place at the NJ Senate gun control hearings.
Host: George Noory
Guests: John Gray, Vernon Mahabal
In the first half, internationally recognized expert in the fields of communication and relationships, John Gray PhD., discussed innate differences between men and women as related to workplace problems. A survey of 100,000 men and women in the workplace found a number of "blind spots," in which the sexes were unaware of how each other saw things differently. For example, because women often wait to be invited to offer their opinion, while men toss their ideas out, a man assumes that the woman has nothing to say, he reported. But "the truth is, she has a lot to say, and it will always bring in another point of view because women quite often do see the world in a different way," he continued.
If we can expand the awareness of what goes on inside men and women in the workplace, situations can improve, Gray suggested. Women often misinterpret things that men say to them, and feel as if it’s a personal slight or something intentionally against them, which increases their stress level, he remarked. Women’s stress levels run twice as high as men in the workplace, and 400% higher than men when they get home, which has led to decreased levels of happiness in women over the years, he cited. Gray also talked about how depression and stress affect men and women differently-- men feel a lack of motivation, while women feel a lack of happiness. Instead of taking antidepressants, he suggested the use of natural supplements such as lithium orotate.
In the latter half, founder of the Palmistry Institute, Vernon Mahabal, predicted trends for the United States based on the repeated patterns he sees in the thousands of palms he reads, as well as through his understanding of Indian astrological cycles. We entered into the Dasa (Mars) period in 2008, a bellicose seven-year cycle filled with unsettling crises, in which people are reliant on their the wits and intuition, he detailed. In early 2015, we’ll go into the Rahu period, he said, an 18 year cycle that will bring in many changes. He foresees Americans slowly moving into a more agrarian situation, in a community-based economy. "I see mass migrations of people," but instead of people moving to where their job is, they’ll move to where they feel comfortable.
In the Rahu cycle (2015-2033), Americans will become more grounded, and feel more responsibility to their provinces or communities than to their states. In fact, in about 5 years, en masse, "people will practically ignore the government," and because of this disinterest government will mostly fall apart in about 10 years, Mahabal predicted. As the spirit of the community becomes stronger, competitiveness and aggressiveness will be funneled into shared projects, he suggested. In about 10 years, 1/4 of the population will have something directly do with farming, but in contrast to the agrarian society of 100 years ago, there’ll be technology mixed in to produce high yields of nutritive and high quality foods, he outlined.
Retired psychology professor from McGill University, Don Donderi, has spent the last 50 years studying evidence for UFOs, ETs and abductions. He discussed some of the copious evidence for these phenomena, which he believes should not be dismissed by mainstream science, yet typically is. He’s concluded that a percentage of UFOs are extraterrestrial vehicles, even though the website of the US Air Force denies this. The governments of such countries as Chile, Brazil, France, and Belgium have provided UFO information to the public, and are neutral as to the origin of UFOs, he pointed out. As to how such craft might travel to Earth, Donderi cited the work of a NASA engineer, Paul R. Hill, who in his posthumously published book, Unconventional Flying Objects, posited that ET craft have the ability to modify gravity.
UFOs have been described in a multitude of shapes and sizes, from small craft to huge objects, bigger and wider than a football field. With such a variety of craft reported over the years, one might infer that they come from different places, and have different operating specs, he noted. One well-researched, but little-known case involved the sighting of a giant spherical UFO seen by about 31 witnesses over the Yukon Territory in Canada in 1996. Donderi is particularly intrigued by the sightings of these kind of gigantic craft, which also occurred in Stephenville, Texas in 2008, over the Taconic Parkway in 1986, over Belgium in 1989, and the Phoenix Lights in 1997.
As far as the reason behind their visitations, Donderi suggested it has to do with surveillance. "It’s like what we do when we’re trying to learn more about nature," he remarked. Further, the probable "catch and release" of humans by ET crews has been established by a number of incidents involving reliable witnesses and investigators, such as the Betty and Barney Hill case, he stated. Donderi believes at least in the "front line," we are dealing with humanoid intelligent beings, rather than some type of robotic creations.
Extinctions & Survival
First hour guest, science/culture journalist Annalee Newitz talked about how humans will adapt and survive a mass extinction event. Such extinction events, which she classified as wiping out 75% of the Earth’s species, have happened at least 5 times in our planet’s history, and have been brought on by climate changes, she said. Yet, these extinctions occurred gradually over a million years time. Shorter term events like the eruption of a supervolcano would pump a lot of toxic gases into the atmosphere, leading to a cold period or a small ice age, followed by global warming. Animals and plants can’t deal with rapid changes in temperature, but humans are equipped to adapt to various situations, such as by building underground facilities, she noted. Still, the global civilization needs to get better prepared for various catastrophic events that have occurred in Earth’s past, she admonished.
Expert on the paranormal Rosemary Ellen Guiley discussed her recent research into the Djinn - powerful spiritual entities that have been described throughout history, as well as her long standing work on dreams. She characterized the Djinn as a race of supernatural beings who were here on the Earth before humanity, but lost dominion of the planet and now live in a parallel dimension to ours. They have access to our world, and there are those among them who are rather hostile to humans, though not all of them are negative, she said. "Based on my research of years and years tracking these entities throughout the paranormal realm, they account for a lot of our negative experiences-- hauntings, possessions, entity encounters...and ET abductions," she revealed.
According to one ancient Arabian legend, the Djinn originated from the winds-- "they were literally primordial wind spirits, often responsible for ill winds that blew in, bringing in disease and bad luck," she detailed. In the Koran, they are explained as preexisting humans created from a substance called smokeless fire, and this may reflect their shapeshifting ability to take on different forms. Interestingly, Guiley concluded after years of studying Shadow People accounts that they are actually Djinn, whom she also believes are connected with alien abduction/hybrid scenarios. Sightings of Shadow People would often precede abductions, she said, sometimes by weeks, months, or years. She also described strange shadow creatures called scuttlers that have been associated with the breakdown of equipment, and health problems. "In writing The Djinn Connection...my purpose here is to bring the Djinn to the attention of the western audience, especially to investigators and researchers...they’re not on our radar, and we need to know about them," she stated.
Speaking about how to recognize precognitive dreams, Guiley said they typically have a different signature, though that can vary from person to person. "Some people will only have precognitive dreams a few times in their lifetimes, and other people will have them quite frequently," she noted. She also touched on dream incubation, lucid dreaming, and how one can successfully interpret their own dreams (see related guide).
Disclosure Hearing Recap
First hour guest, ufologist Grant Cameron gave a recap of last week’s Citizen’s Hearing on Disclosure, which he considers to be the biggest event of its kind since Steven Greer’s 2001 Disclosure Project. The panel, which consisted of one former US Senator and five former members of Congress, seemed to be spellbound and eventually won over by the extensive testimony about UFOs, Cameron reported. On the last day, when the panelists made their final statements, Senator Mike Gravel remarked that he was angry about the UFO cover-up and the related withholding of advanced technology from the public. Cameron was one of the presenters at the Hearing and spoke about the UFO-psychic connection.
Host: George Noory
Guests: Bruce Lipton, Dr. Roger Leir
Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D, is an authority in bridging science and spirit, and a leading voice in new biology. He shared his belief that if we use the 50 trillion cells that live harmoniously in the human body as a model, we can create not just honeymoon relationships for couples but also a "super organism" called humanity that can heal our planet. This evolution is not a physical one that will alter our bodies, but one in consciousness and expanded awareness, bringing changes beyond what we can imagine, he envisions.
He described the ’honeymoon effect’ as a state of bliss and energy resulting from love, which is part of our biological imperative. Being in love actually produces certain chemicals in the body like oxytocin and vasopressin which contribute to feelings of pleasure and well being, he noted. While for most, the ’honeymoon effect’ is short-lived, he argues that we can, through conscious choice, sustain this wonderful state throughout our lives.
The main thing that holds people back, he suggested, is they are often operating from the subconscious programming of their mind, imprinted from the first seven years of their life. This "default" state is based on other people’s thoughts such as parents rather than oneself, he said. People can be encoded with negative belief structures in their subconscious such as they are not worthy, which can lead to sabotaging behaviors, he continued. Lipton also reviewed his groundbreaking work in epigenetics, and his contention that genes can be rewritten or revised to reflect health and well-being.
Citizen Hearing on Disclosure
First hour guest, ufologist Dr. Roger Leir reported on the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure being held this week in Washington DC, with a wide array of witnesses and experts giving testimony in front of a committee of former US congressional members. Attendance has been good, and live streaming on the web is also available, he said. There’s been discussion at the Hearing to push for a draft to be presented at the United Nations, he announced. On Thursday, there were presentations from countries outside the US, and Leir said he was particularly impressed by the openness of South American countries such as Uruguay, which sends military personnel out to schools to teach students about UFOs and ET life.
