Episode #149: The Gods of Eden - Part 7

This is the final part of our deep dive into William Bramley's The Gods of Eden. We pick up where we left off last week with the Count of St. Germain, and his strange ability to travel back and forth between warring aristocracy in Europe and England, the part he played in the coup of Catherine II over Peter III in Russia, and later, the implications that he may have staged his death and lived on, or even the possibility that he was, if not immortal, at least very long-lived.
We also look at Joseph Smith and the formation of the Mormon church, and some of the information said to have been written on the "metal plates" that Joseph was supposedly told to recover from a hidden place, which detail terrible catastrophes that fell on a civilization now lost to history.

Finally, we end with Bramley's message to anyone who wants to carry his research forward, and his outlining of several threads to pull on.

We hope you all enjoyed this deep dive as much as we did!

Episode #148: The Gods of Eden - Part 6

We are back to our regularly scheduled program of our deep dive into William Bramley's The Gods of Eden after last week's break. This week we finish up with the sections on the Plagues and begin moving into more recent history, following the corrupted Brotherhood's machinations as they foment war and strife across Europe. We look at the Protestant rebellion, Calvinism, the Eighty Years War, the strange cult known as the "Friends of God", and Rosicrucianism. We end in the middle of the chapter on the Count of St. Germain, a very strange and mysterious figure from the 1700s.

Episode #147: Splash Chevrons and Effortless Power

Russ is sick this week(not with Covid19, don't worry), so we had to put the Gods of Eden book report on hold because Russ can't read when he's sick. (Well, really, it's just hard to talk so much with a sore throat).

So instead we have Chris Cottrel from The Dabbler's Den on for a segment to talk to us about a new and fascinating idea that he and Antonio Zamora have been working on, related to the Carolina Bays,  called "Splash Chevrons". Chris shows us some of the LiDAR images he has been looking at that show these features(if you want to see the images, you can check our YouTube Channel for the video for this episode, as we did record video during the interview with Chris),  and we talk about what they might be.

We also have on our good friend Brendan Lea, who some of you may know from recent emails to the show about "nothing". We talk with him about his work with world champion martial artist Peter Ralston, but we talk not about "fighting", really, but something much deeper about the nature of reality itself and what that means(or doesn't), because part of the training he has undergone with Peter is about having an "enlightenment" experience of something absolute, and that changed his life and his entire outlook on reality itself.

We hope you enjoy this show, and the book report will resume next week!

Episode #146: The Gods of Eden - Part 5

We continue our reading of William Bramley's The Gods of Eden, following the corrupt Brotherhood and the Custodial machinations to the end of the Crusades. Bramley focuses briefly on the ancient Americas, talking about the Custodial influences there, with the same legends of "gods" from other worlds or the stars. We then go back across the Atlantic and begin looking at the Black Death and the plague years, and the strange sightings in the sky of lights and objects during this period,as well as the unknown cloaked figures reported in the outskirts of towns that later became the popularized image of "Death", holding a scythe.
