Joining George Knapp, Dr. Ruth Kastner , winner of two National Science Foundation awards for her study of interpretational issues in quantum theory, offered her insights into various quantum riddles, and presented different ways to view and interpret our reality. Classical physics was based on a mechanistic model, in which things could be taken apart and understood like a clock, with precise laws that described their workings. However, when it came to understanding things on the micro scale, such as the atom, the mechanical model did not hold up, and quantum physics was developed as a way to fathom the behavior of tiny particles, she explained.
Quantum physics suggests that our space-time world (all physical reality) could be thought of like the tip of an iceberg, but there's also a huge submerged portion of the iceberg that remains hidden, yet is necessary for space-time formation, Kastner outlined. In a sense, we're only experiencing a projection of this larger reality, she continued. Regarding the many worlds hypothesis (where all possible versions of alternate pasts and futures are real), she said that quantum mechanics points to these alternate versions as unmanifest possibilities that can only be indirectly inferred.
Discussing higher dimensions (the hidden portion of the iceberg), she suggested that they're populated by quantum systems, which wouldn't really correspond to beings or spirits, "but there is room in this interpretation for the idea that the mind could live in some sense in this realm." Addressing the topic of free will, Kastner believes that events are brought about from the quantum realm, and in that process, we're actually creating space-time, and an evolving future that doesn't have to exist yet, which means there's no fate or preordained events in our lives.
Project Blue Book Files:
First hour guest, Rob Mercer of the Miami Valley UFO Society told how he came across a man on Craigslist selling a box of Project Blue Book files (view images ) he'd bought at auction. Mercer tracked down the original owner, a former officer assigned to Project Blue Book at Wright-Patterson, who didn't realize that he'd left the files behind when he moved, and was able to give Mercer additional materials he had stored. A lot of the Blue Book files were put together for the press, and accordingly there were no redacted pages in what they were shown, the retired officer explained. One of the items Mercer received was a grainy UFO film recorded in Tremonton, Utah in 1952.
The UFO Phenomenon:
On Saturday's show, George Knapp welcomed UFO researcher and professor at State University of New York, Robert Davis , to discuss his science-based analysis exploring the authenticity and nature of the UFO phenomenon. According to Davis, very little progress has been made in understanding this phenomenon and what is associated with it. "Researchers continue to focus on retrospective events, such as the Roswell incident, the Phoenix Lights, Rendlesham Forest, the Shag Harbour incident, among others, instead of conducting prospective scientific research of the phenomenon," he said. Decades of research have been mostly disappointing because of its focus on whether an unexplained aerial event is a UFO of possible extraterrestrial origin, he added. In the first hour, author and media researcher Jamie Bartlett talked about the Dark Net and the conviction of Silk Road drug website founder Ross Ulbricht...cont.
Today in Strangeness:
On this date 46 years ago, Ohio's Cuyahoga River literally caught on fire. While the river had been aflame numerous times before, it was this incident which brought the attention of the national media, most notably TIME magazine, and cast an embarrassing spotlight on the rampant pollution in the area.
Tonight's Show, Monday, June 22nd:
First Half: Executive Director of Gun Owners of America for over 30 years, Larry Pratt , leads his organization of 300,000 Americans dedicated to promoting their Second Amendment freedom to keep and bear arms. He'll discuss the latest legislation to protect private ownership of firearms as well as the militarization of our police forces and the implications of the current move to merge the ATF with the FBI.
2nd Half: Authors Chris Styles and Graham Simms are the foremost experts on the Shag Harbour and Shelburne UFO Incidents of October 1967. The Shag Harbour Incident was an international Cold-War event that has secured a place in Canadian history as one of the most documented UFO cases. There are military witnesses, as well as RCMP and civilian witnesses to the UFO, and alien beings in the area.
