On the October 19, 2000 edition of the Coast To Coast AM talk
radio show, the host, Mike Siegel, interviewed author Howard Bloom about
his book, The Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind From the Big
Bang to the 21st Century.
The concept of the collective mind intrigues me, and I sometimes
wonder if our pigeons are able to pick up on something like this. Seeing
birds and insects flock especially makes me think this way.
Just before the show started, I sent in a fax to the host asking him to
present some questions to Mr. Bloom. I started the recorder and went to bed and didn't
get around to listening to the show for several days. To my surprise, the
letter was read and answered on the air to a potential audience of
millions! Unfortunately, Mr. Bloom did not address the question from the
collective mind point of view, but rather, went into a scientific,
but interesting nonetheless, explanation of the homing ability.
I've placed the three-minute recording here to share with the people who
did not get a chance to hear it on the air. I've also placed a copy of the
original fax here, as well.
