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.
After hearing Laird Scranton suddenly realized something during your interview, I think a new word should be added to your glossary. "Snakepiphany: A sudden realization during the podcast"ReplyDelete

All that hippie nonsense I used to make fun of makes so much more sense nowReplyDelete
For example, try meditating to connect with the non-materialReplyDelete
Also could the "non-material" be the elusive "dark matter"ReplyDelete
I was thinking about Kyle's mild annoyance of models. To spin it in a positive way. Maybe think about it like, models show us what is relatively possible using the available data which is kind of cool. Yeah anything is possible theoretically or if you look at the right model lol, but if predicted by a model with reasonable constraints it just shows all the different plausibilities. Science kicks ass.ReplyDelete
I'm so thankful for this show...ReplyDelete
I sorta only heard white noise after 50minutesReplyDelete
"Its easier to explain if we bring it down to the quantum level" lol
