Episode #160: Megalithic America with Glenn Kreisberg

We talk with Glenn Kreisberg, author of Spirits in Stone, about the many megaliths, dolmens, standing stones, and stone effigy sites in the northeastern U.S.

Although there are undoubtedly many colonial artifacts like stone piles and stone border walls throughout the northeastern United States, Glenn describes how some of these sites display celestial and internal alignments that make them unlikely to be the constructions of farmers clearing land and marking borders. He also gives several ways of trying to determine if one is looking at a "colonial" construction, or something much more ancient and interesting.

We also briefly discuss some of his work on Malta, and the seemingly anomalous acoustical properties of the Hypogeum.

Episode #159: Laird Scranton on Ancient Wisdom

We have an excellent conversation with author Laird Scranton about his research into the wisdom of the ancients; the Dogon, the ancient Egyptians, the ancient Hindu traditions, and more, all seem to contain parts of a precise scientific understanding of the cosmos, life, consciousness, and the nature of matter and energy. Laird describes how many of these ancient traditions express this understanding through the use of symbols that are often the same or very similar even across distant cultures.
We talk about the "civilizer gods", the Apkallu, the Seven Sages, and the Viracochas...all of which may be the result of beings from the "immaterial realm" crossing over during the times when our universe is closest to theirs, in order to teach and establish systems of knowledge that will survive across many thousands of years when the two realms are too "distant" to fully interact.

A very interesting conversation that left us with a lot to ponder.

Enjoy!

Episode #158: Hybridization and Humans

In this final episode of our deep dive into the hybridization and evolution topic, we continue to go through Dr. Eugene McCarthy's material on his website about hybridization and stabilization. After a few final words on the subject of "species", we read about hybridization itself and how common it really is in the wild. We talk about generational hybrids, reciprocal crosses, backcross breeding, extinction and absorption, intermediacy in characteristics, and more.

Near the end of the show we also read some excerpts from the section of the website that discusses the possibility that modern humans are a product of hybridization long ago, and that we all still show the evidence of it in fertility, morphology, and characteristics as well.
