Jacque Fresco warns against the dangers of metaphysics. Fresco describes several cases of unusual phenomena and gives a naturalistic account to either explain or scrutinize the claims. A major portion of this recording is dedicated to Fresco recounting his relation to Frank Scully’s book “Behind the Flying Saucers” and Fresco’s interview with Orfeo Angelucci. Metaphysics and cases of unusual phenomena include: witches and warlocks; astral spirits; root races; Menehunes of Hawaii; leprechauns of Ireland; the 1953 monkey alien hoax; Camille Flammarion’s book “The Atmosphere”; mirages such as islands in the sky and ghost ships; “Projection of the Astral Body” by Sylvan Muldoon and Hereward Carrington; levitation; outer body experiences; god, heaven, and angels; the work of supernatural sensationalist Frank Edwards; The Devil’s Triangle; the novel The Most Dangerous Game; and extrasensory perception (ESP).
