The Dark Knight - 2008
Bah, humbag. You whippersnappers are so clueless. There was a time when witchcraft was all the science we needed. AND WE WERE SATISFIED, DAMMIT! What I wouldn't give for some sheep innards so I could know what the weather was gonna be like tomorrow.
Probably the best reference book I have come across regarding Haruspicy and many other types of prediction techniques is Dreaming the Future by Clifford Pickover
. It is a wicked book - if reading sheep guts causes you distress, you don't want to know about Anthropomancy.
Pickover has been on CTC, but needs Knapp or Art to host any future interviews because he is easily as heavy a hitter as Kaku. When Noory "interviewed" Pickover, he kept posing linear questions or making off the wall inane comments and was completely unable to interact with Pickover's "meta connections" style. Pickover is a scientist who has the ability to entertain.
When George interviews, he requires brilliant guests to state obvious facts and steps down the conversation to the lowest common denominator he can assimilate.
"If A, then B, and what was A again, Dr. Pickover? Okay, then thaaaaaaaaat gives us B. And how about that C that comes later? That's wild, isn't it? I luuuuuv it. Let's take some calls."
Anyone studing any of the Western Inner traditions such as the Sufi/Muslim "Whirling Dervishes" or Jewish esoteric Kabbalah, may be familiar with a defunct magazine called GNOSIS. Alex Grey created several GNOSIS covers. His art was used for the Dreaming the Future
