In Pontus’ absence Annika is back for a quick visit before her planned return next month. We mention the terrible assassination attempt against Slovakian prime minister Robert Fico and how it’s a new source of fake news. On TWISH you can hear about Franz Anton Mesmer, who was the foremost proponent of “animal magnetism”. Then, we look at the news:

  • GERMANY: GWUP has a new leadership – Congratulations!
  • VATICAN CITY: The Inquisition introducing new rules for the assessment of potentially “Supernatural Phenomena”
  • SCOTLAND: According to 2022 census released recently, majority of people not affiliated with any religions.

Enjoy!

0:30:11 QUOTE AND FAREWELL

“Human cognition cannot be confined within limits. Theology’s ongoing battles to make us believe, again and again, that a certain horizon of our knowledge must be regarded as definitive, because beyond it begins the supernatural sphere, are bound to fail. This failure is impossible to hide from an objective way of thinking, no matter how sophisticated the arguments are.”

/ Aurél Ponori-Thewrewk, Hungarian astronomer, chronologist and social historian (2 May 1921 – 8 October 2014) /
