Peter Levenda Interview

This weekend on Whitley Strieber’s Unknown Country we’ll be hearing from Peter Levenda, who is promoting his new book Stairway to Heaven.  Here’s some information about the subscriber interview:

William Henry is one of the great experts on the Stairway to Heaven, and the perfect person to go deeper with Peter, and that’s exactly what happens here as they discuss the secrets of the seven stars we call the Big Dipper, but which most other cultures refer to as a boat or a chariot or some other means of conveyance that carries someone or something into the constellation known as the Great Bear.

This, of course, sounds similar to the content of Gates of the Necronomicon.  As you know, I’ve been disappointed already that Simon’s book on ascension literature has been preempted by Levenda’s book on ascension literature.  I sincerely wish that Simon and Levenda, seeing as they work together so closely, would get together and decide who’s going to write about what.

  1. Ha. I have visions of Lazarus and anti-Lazarus from “The Alternative Factor” episode of Star Trek.

  2. It would be too funny if Streiber would schedule ‘Simon’ for the following week’s show – as a critic of Levenda’s work.

  3. According to the Dreamland site, Levenda’s going to be a guest host of the show.

    Must… resist… urge to call… and request… Simon… interview!

  4. I’ll buy you a plush Ghoul if you do it!

    (anyone know where I can find a plush Ghoul?)

  5. “…the *seven* stars we call the Big Dipper…”? Geez, they can’t even get *that* right.

    The middle star in the handle, Mizar, is actually an optical binary. Look closely at Mizar and you should be able to see the comparatively faint Alcor slightly to the east. Alcor is about three light-years further away from us than Mizar, so the two aren’t gravitationally bound.

    Mizar itself is a quadruple system consisting of two binary systems – Mizar-A and Mizar-B – which revolve around each other every ~2000 years.

    If you want to get really nit-picky, there’s an 8th-magnitude star between Mizar and Alcor called Ludwig’s Star. It was discovered way back in the 18th century.

    The “other six” stars of the Big Dipper have their own stories, which I will leave to the reader to discover. Note also that the Big Dipper itself is a transient structure that did not exist ~25,000 years ago and it will be distorted beyond recognition in another 25,000 years.
