31.24 - MU Podcast - Superintelligence and the Coming AI Wars
AI is currently a hot topic; everyone wants in, and with its promises of revolutionizing the world, its integration into our society cannot come soon enough. However, is it all as promising as it seems? While the dangers of AI have been highlighted by numerous leading figures worldwide, the potential for it to overshadow humanity is greater than anyone expects. We explore the work of an OpenAI insider who predicts that "superintelligent" AI will arrive sooner than anticipated, and we may not be able to control it. Suggestions have been made to create other AIs to control the super AI, but could this be futile? We examine these startling revelations and consider their connection to occult warnings foretold decades ago. For our Plus+ members, we investigate encounters with "tree beings" and reports of faceless shadow entities appearing in people's backyards, camping grounds, and even in music videos shot in the Australian bushland.

31.22 - MU Podcast - Retrocausal Jungle Visions
Could creativity actually be a form of time travel? We explore this intriguing idea on this episode as we journey through reports of artists and writers who often seem to predict the future. We learn how a man seemingly knew of his impending death on 9/11 and expressed it in strange works of art, before hearing how a famed filmmaker depicted a survivor who fell from a plane long before the events occurred. Then for Plus+ members we consider how blood is often connected with supernatural phenomena. From occult rituals and alien encounters to cattle mutilations and interdimensional predators, the lust for blood is disturbingly common. We discuss reports of supernatural bloodlust and consider how dark, non-human influences could be draining our life force in the form of blood to sustain their terrible plans on Earth.

31.21 - MU Podcast - The Top Secret Nuclear Bird
Somehow, any unusual light in the sky, strange aircraft, or unidentified object has become synonymous with extraterrestrials. Of course, such a generalization, while it may be apt in some reports, fails to assist in answering the continuing mystery of UFOs. For this episode, we explore some alternative theories around the nature of UFOs. Are they really associated with aliens, or is something more unusual occurring? We consider military cover-ups and hear how an advanced but highly radioactive space drive system, reverse-engineered from the future, could explain some of the most terrifying reports of encounters with unidentified flying craft. Then, for our Plus+ members, we follow the journey of a man who hones his incredible synesthetic skills to become one with the Raven and fly into a greater level of consciousness.

Around the world, mysterious ancient monoliths with perfectly carved terraces, massive steps, and underground grottos puzzle archaeologists, who attribute them to early cultures. Researcher Camille M. Sauvé explores how sacred sites around the world share architectural traits, revealing an ancient global culture and advanced, stone moulding technology. We discuss how Sauvé considers the science behind these monoliths, their placement on earth power spots, and their significant piezoelectric properties, suggesting Peru may hold secrets to our forgotten prehistory. For our Plus+ members, we explore the phenomenon of "angel hair," which is often dismissed as spider webs but could be something supernatural. This mysterious substance, sometimes radioactive and glowing, resembles ectoplasm and star jelly. We consider the possibility that dangerous atmospheric beasts could be responsible for these strange, disappearing materials, pointing to something more unsettling.

31.17 - MU Podcast - Battlefield Echoes Reborn
The topic of past life memories and reincarnation is often considered a taboo subject. However, inquiring minds like Ian Stevenson and Jim Tucker are well-known in their field due to the incredible case reports they have collated over their decorated careers. That said, it's not well-known that it was actually a 200-year-old report from Japan that spurred Stevenson to explore this fascinating phenomenon. On this episode, we hear this report and other incredible cases of reincarnation from Japan. Some children's memories are so vivid that rich details provide considerable evidence for life continuing beyond our understanding. Then, in our Plus+ extension, we discuss the 'beetle levitation platform' and hear how an unwitting bug scientist's encounters with an angry beehive led him to discover antigravity technology and create a flying platform that could potentially be associated with UFO tech.

31.16 - MU Podcast - The Great Crop Circle Hoax
Crop circles is a subject of heated debate among both paranormal enthusiasts and scientists. However, there might be deeper, more profound explanations lurking within our collective human experiences that could shed light on this mystery. Some individuals who admit to creating these hoaxes report experiencing strange occurrences, suggesting that a mysterious force influences them to make these designs. We dive into these accounts to explore the possibility that a paranormal intelligence could be linked to various phenomena associated with crop circles, including mysterious creatures, orbs of light, time distortions, and more. For our Plus+ members, we explore the writings of a Japanese equivalent to John Keel, featuring encounters with serpentine women, airborne mountain men, and the bizarre technologies of a lost civilization.

31.14 - MU Podcast - Psychic Pre-Crime
Psychic phenomena permeates many aspects of our lives; however, for some reason, it is especially apparent in crime. Whether it's heightened emotions or human energy fueling tense events coupled with violence and revenge, the strange and unexplained is never far from these occurrences. We discuss some of these unusual happenings in the context of crimes being solved from beyond the grave, dowsing for missing persons, using psychometry to find money, and much more. Then, for our Plus+ Members, we explore the extraordinary and contentious theory that the stones comprising the Pyramids and other ancient sites are actually an artificial polymer, nearly indistinguishable from natural rock, crafted through the utilization of a lost technology only recently discovered by modern science.

Throughout the world, across numerous cultures, elongated skulls have been revered. Whether it's a small isolated island in the middle of the Pacific or an ancient culture, the practice of elongating skulls is as mystifying as it is unexplained. The practice has led some to speculate that it was done to enhance consciousness and psychic abilities. For the very same reason, trepanning has been conducted from Neolithic times to the modern day. We explore this strange practice and hear reports of people who have attempted to alter their consciousness by drilling holes in their heads. Sometimes with incredible improvements, though usually the person ends up in a love affair with a pigeon. Listen to find out more. Then, for our Plus+ Members, we take a look at a new angle on Bigfoot encounters and consider how they are more similar to poltergeist encounters than you might think.

An unassuming and hardworking woman arrived in Brasília in 1957 to contribute to the construction of the new capital city. Yet, within two decades, she had established a spiritual metropolis that serves as the headquarters of a global spiritual movement. We explore the life of this mysterious woman and learn about the practices of the "Valley of the Dawn" faith. Often dismissed as a cult, they could be considered the Brazilian equivalent of Unarius, adorned in peculiar bright clothing and holding alien beliefs. However, there appears to be something otherworldly truly unfolding within this group and its members. In our Plus+ extension, we discuss the experiences of Australian psychonauts and the extraordinary encounters they've had with ethereal beings. Are these entities benevolent or malevolent?

Why do we possess the traits we do? Why do we look and act the way we do? Is genetics the answer? The entire concept of genes explaining who and why we are didn't hold as well as it once had. There has to be something else, and that something else might be akin to the theories of morphic fields proposed by the groundbreaking scientist Rupert Sheldrake. We discuss concepts such as presentiment, extraordinary knowledge, telepathy, and much more as we delve into the strangest aspects of morphic fields and consider how they may address some of the questions about what it means to be a human being.
