Christopher O'Brien has a new book out entitled. Stalking the Herd, which is one of the most the most thoroughly researched books ever published on Cattle Mutilations. In part one of this interview, we discuss the phenomena in general, we talk about it's history, and the first cases. We do get into the levels of high strangeness, as well as the mundane cases. Chris will be back in June for Part 2.
From 1992 to 2002 Christopher O'Brien investigated over one thousand paranormal events reported in the San Luis Valley—located in south-central Colorado/north-central New Mexico.
Working with law enforcement officials, ex-military, ranchers and an extensive network of skywatchers, he documented what may have been the most intense wave of unexplained activity ever seen in a single region of North America.
His meticulous field investigation of UFO reports, unexplained livestock deaths, Native American legends, cryptozoology, secret military activity and the folklore, found in the world's largest alpine valley, has produced one of the largest databases of unusual occurrences gathered from a single geographic region. He is currently working with a team of specialists installing a high-tech video surveillance and hard-data monitoring system in and around the San Luis Valley.
He has also authored Stalking the Tricksters which is published by Adventures Unlimited Press. This controversial book distills his years of field investigation and research into an ingenious unified paranormal theory that is sure to create intense interest and controversy.
Wallace Thornhill joins us on this night, and we discuss many facets of the Electric Universe Theory. Why it should be preferred over the current mainstream model, the proof for it, dismissing the Big Bang, Black Holes, Dark Matter, and much more. We talk of galaxies and stars, and what happened to Mars and Earth in the distant path. We talk of Velikovsky and Peratt. It is a fascinating journey.
Wallace Thornhill graduated in Physics at Melbourne University in 1964 and began postgraduate studies with Prof. Victor Hopper’s upper atmosphere research group. Before entering university, he had been inspired by Immanuel Velikovsky through his controversial best-selling book, Worlds in Collision. Wal experienced first-hand the indifference and sometimes hostility toward a radical challenge to mainstream science. He realized there is no career for a heretic in academia.
Wal worked for 11 years with IBM Australia. The later years were spent in the prestigious IBM Systems Development Institute in Canberra, working on the first computer graphics system in Australia. He was the technical support for the computing facilities in the Research Schools at the Australian National University, which gave him excellent access to libraries and scientists there.
Wal was initially heavily influenced by the then revolutionary ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky of Princeton. Velikovsky proposed that mankind had been devastated in the past by cosmological events . Wal took these ideas and with his deep knowledge of astronomy and, plasma physics began his own questioning of scientific dogma. Paramount was the place of electro magnetism, as distinct from gravity, in the formation of the universe . This slowly but surely led to his and other colleagues (such as David Talbot, Donald Scott, and Anthony Peratt) questioning such ingrained theories as the big bang, black holes and Einstein’s theory of relativity. This group in particular contend that many scientific “proofs “are theory laden or mathematically concocted. An insistence on empirical data from observations and experiments gives their work true integrity. (bio taken from www.ancientdestructions.com, more at the sight)

Born in Nottinghamshire, Cal Cooper spent much of his early life reading up on the paranormal at his local school library whenever he could. Years later he developed an interest in human behavior and the many questions we always want to ask about the mind and its capabilities.
Cal received much media interest for his research into phone calls from the dead after he received the Eileen J. Garrett Scholarship from the Parapsychology Foundation in 2009. He holds a BSc (Hons) in psychology from the University of Northampton and a MRes in psychology from Sheffield Hallam University. He is the recipient of the Alex Tanous Scholarship Award from the Alex Tanous Foundation for Scientific Research, several times over. Currently, Cal is based at the University of Northampton pursuing doctoral research in psychology and parapsychology. He is also a lecturer at the university on subjects such as: parapsychology, thanatology, and ancient mysticism.
Cal has many areas of interest in psychology including; research methods, beliefs, motivation and emotion, and the psychology of death. However, parapsychology is what Cal is most recognized for with his research into survival of death, psychic abilities, poltergeists, apparitions and hauntings.
Peter Robbins returns to the show to continue our discussion about Wilhelm Reich. First we discuss some happenings in the UFO world, before delving into some of Reich's theories, Orgone, connections to Eastern philosophy, sex, and even Aleister Crowley.
Peter Robbins was first introduced to the books of Wilhelm Reich as a teenager by a college roommate, to whom he remains deeply indebted. In 1976 he met Dr. Elsworth F. Baker, Reich’s first assistant for the last eleven years of his life. Soon after this he became a patient of Dr. Baker and entered into almost seven years of medical orgone therapy with the distinguished orgonomist.
Robbins went on to enroll in the classes New York University offered in scientific and social orgonomy which was taught by the Reich scholars Professors John Bell and Paul Matthews. They in turn invited him to become a member of their ongoing Seminar in Social and Scientific Orgonomy, patterned after the seminars which Sigmund Freud presided over during the nineteen twenties. Peter spent much of the nineteen eighties involved with this group, presenting a variety of papers to his fellow seminar members under Matthews’ and Bell’s guidance and leadership.
Peter was a volunteer fundraiser for the American College of Orgonomy’s (ACO) Building Fund and had two papers on Wilhelm Reich and UFOs published in the Journal of Orgonomy. He was part of a select group of volunteers invited to witness a demonstration of cloudbusting technology and presented on the subject of Reich and UFOs at the ACO’s Princeton NJ facility, and at international conferences on the life and work of Reich in New York City, Ashland Oregon, Niece France and Karavomilos Greece. His lectures have been well received at numerous scientific and UFO conferences both here and abroad while his articles on the subject have been published in a variety of print and web publications. Robbins’ extensively researched paper, “Politics, Religion and Human Nature: Practical Problems and Roadblocks on the Path Toward Official UFO Acknowledgment” is scheduled to be published in the upcoming issue of Annals of the Institute for Orgonomic Science.
Marty Leeds is the author of three books: Pi & The English Alphabet Vol. 1 and 2 and The Peacock's Tales - The Alchemical Writings of Claudia Pavonis. Marty's work focuses on sacred geometry, gematria, symbolism, occultism, philosophy, comparative mythology and spirituality. Marty has uncovered a mathematical cipher for the English alphabet based on religious and secret society symbols as well as the transcendental mathematical constant pi, 3.141. This cipher decodes and unveils deep levels of information encoded within everything from board games to biblical verses to the Constitution of the United States. Marty Leeds has been a guest on many popular podcasts and was a featured speaker at the Free Your Mind Conference in Philadelphia in 2013.
We discuss everything from Pi, Sacred Geometry, Chess, Gematria, the Bible, 666, Jesus, the Holographic Universe, and much more...
