101 - Bernie Taylor - Before Orion

Entering the Cave of Castillo by torch-light Bernie Taylor takes us on the journey of transformation.


Bernie Taylor is an independent naturalist, thought leader and author whose research explores the mythological connections and biological knowledge among prehistoric, indigenous and ancient peoples. His works in these areas include Biological Time (2004) and Before Orion: Finding the Face of the Hero (2017). Before Orion is premised on Joseph’s Campbell’s hero's journey monomyth that is at the core of stories worldwide among indigenous peoples, the ancients, and our modern society. Before Orion explores a deeper root for this monomyth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds through Paleolithic cave art from 40,000 years ago. Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. Taylor addresses a profound archaeological elephant in the room by opening up an uncharted place in our history, which points to the cultural ancestors of mankind in western North Africa. Before Orion will change the idea of who you think you are.


96 - Ariel School UFO Case

Aaron David tips his contrarian toe into Fortean waters and explores the September 1994 Ariel School Phenomenon. Why would such a phenomenon present itself in Harare, Zimbabwe? We look at the history of the land locked country and the history of the uniquely independent Ariel School. Frater Parzival drops in for a look at the electoral chart for the UFO event as well!


93 - Starbound Biochemical Engines

Join Aaron David in the first half of the show as he riffs off of the words of Terence and Dennis McKenna. In the second half of the show Kelly joins in with a mind-blowing revelation exactly one year to the day in the making. And remember, the Universe will take you in, reveal its intent, and share its conclusion. All that you must do is to be willing to embark on the journey. The total number of neurons in the human brain falls in the same ballpark of the number of galaxies in the observable universe. Feed them fire.


91 - Psilocybin Blue Skies

Aaron David and Kelly talk about scrying and evocation preparation through daily magical regimes, journaling, microdosing psilocybin, haunted antique stuff in Burnsville, and local dead-now-famous musician Leslie Riddle. Kelly reads from her Dragonfly book that she is currently in the process of writing. If you like it let her know it @kmn0b1!


86 - Backseat Spirit & Cannabis Flowers

We talk about the Hemp Farmacy and CBD Cannabis flowers, as well as our favorite new Thai restaurant, Siam Thai. I talk a bit more about my Black Cat Gambling Familiar Booklet and then out of no where Kelly drops it on me that she saw the spirit of a woman riding along with us in the Jeep today. So, I do a ghost box session! Be sure to check out Crystal Carpenter at Winter Soul Studios. Find El Gato Gomez here. Finally, the eBay auction for Kelly's mic can be found here.

Aaron David begins with a reading from a sci fi novella he authored well over a decade ago, that just happened to come true.
