But Kyle recalls something from ancient times that may help us, an archaic alchemical practice involving the use of caustic acids to acquire organic fibres extracted from certain deciduous growths, which are then embedded within the matrix of a special resin aggregate. This is followed by the precise and minute application of a special solution comprised of a mixture of obscure dark powders from deep in the Punjab in India, which are completely dissolved into carefully filtered and distilled alcohol. When this is done properly, beneath the light of a waxing gibbous harvest moon, with the precise performance of all ritual movements, burnt sacrifices, and praises raised to the dark gods of hidden knowledge, the result is an actual physical object shaped like a small box, which contains within it all manner of complex and secret knowledge and practices.
This thing, which the ancients were aware of and of which they made plenty, was called a "book".
Mind => Blown
So the first two segments are spent discussing the contents of a book Kyle has been going through(a little number some of you might be familiar with called "The Book of Enoch", by Enoch) as well as a book Russ has been studying(called "The Velikovsky Heresies" by Laird Scranton). Actually, the discussion was supposed to be focused on the Book of Enoch, but Russ keeps bringing up the Velikovsky Heresies almost as if he's trying to say "Hey, look, I can read books too" or something.
For the second hour our longstanding resident Show Observer and Fact Checker extraordinaire, Mr. Brett England, B. Sci, EMT, MiB, WtF etc etc joins us in-studio because the conversation wasn't confusing enough in the first two segments. The three of us ponder the origins of the esoteric traditions and make fun of materialists before moving, in the final segment, to a minor expose on the strange subject of Zoroastrianism and their singular god of the winged disk and small asian cars, Ahura Mazda.
