LD20080723 - David Hudson - Has the Philosopher's Stone Been Found - Part 6
Part six (6) of David Hudson's 1990s talk "Has the Philosopher's Stone Been Found?" is upon us. This episode finishes the science and new findings segment of the lecture, and starts the historical retrospective, having a bit more of a speculative feel than the former parts. Newcomers will want to listen to parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 before this one. Come get the mp3, 29.8MB in size and 52:57 in length. Tune in next week for the exciting conclusion to this series. Also in the pipeline is a phone interview with Subtle Energies' Barry Carter. Send any questions or comments for Barry to me in email.
LD20080716 - David Hudson - Has the Philosopher's Stone Been Found - Part 5
This is number 5 in a series of parts of a lecture given by David Hudson in the 1990s entitled "Has the Philosopher's Stone Been Found?" If you missed the other four parts, you might wish to listen to them first: part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4. In this part Hudson presents, with sources, compelling evidence that the white powder of gold, also known as the philosopher's stone (and by many other names through the ages), is the common thread in all the old mystery religions, Egyptian spirituality, esoteric Judaism, and in suppressed Christianity. The ark of the covenant, the holy grail, the philosopher's stone, they all seem to be obscured in the mists and myths of history, but perhaps there is a straight path through what was once occult. Science has begun to understand the realm of the spirit. Materialism is giving way to in the face of discoveries and rediscoveries (which are now gaining traction, validity, and verifiability in the scientific world). This episode and the following few will show these connections; I hope you enjoy listening to them. As previously mentioned, in the weeks ahead I hope to feature the current center of the ORMUS "universe", Barry Carter. In the meantime, check out his very in-depth site about ORMUS. Stay tuned for more details about his interview. Here is the mp3 for your listening and downloading pleasure; it's 28.8MB big, 55:02 long. As always, please tell me what you think.

Parts 1, 2, and 3 may be desirable to hear before delving into this one if you are jumping in mid-series. In this part, Hudson addresses more spiritual concerns than in the prior three parts, which cover more hard science and published and peer-reviewed research. This episode of Live and Direct is 52:40 long and takes up 28.7MB. Please download, listen, and enjoy. As always, feel free to email me.
