ABOUT Shrouded in Mist: Physics and the Archaic Symbology of Metaphysics by Peter O'Lalor
To demystify millennia of science, philosophy, and religion is no easy task. During archaic times and the thousands of years of wisdom; acquired by the priests of Egypt for example, there was no reference to science or philosophy--it wasn't even religion, per se.The nature of existence or of truth and knowledge was not merely the true belief, of ancient Greek philosophy.
As civilization moved westward, through the Mediterranean, Europe, and across the Atlantic; the nature of existence or of truth and knowledge, was and still remains in constant and often volatile conflict. It seems the world has settled on believing but understanding where it all came from, remains shrouded in the mists of time.Presented in Shrouded in Mist is one poet's attempt to reconcile the faith and wisdom, between science and religion.
The People Speak has evolved over the years with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts.
We are a 55 minute show airing every other Sunday between 5-6pm Pacific/8-9pm Eastern. The show features a guest interview from any number of realms of interest (entertainment, science, philosophy, healing, spirituality, activism, politics, literature, etc.).
The guests share their stories, lives, strategies, books, philosophy, films, music, or whatever it is they use as a vehicle for making a difference for the better.
The radio show name, The People Speak, is based on the idea of allowing our audience - the People - a chance to interact with the guests during the hour, and we take phone or text questions from them during the interview.
Past guests include such notables as Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Howard Zinn, Nobel Laureates Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi, Kathryn Najimy, Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Horton, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, George Galloway, Roseanne Barr, Ed Asner, Chevy Chase, as well as various reps from Amnesty International, UN World Food Programme, and many others.
