Howdie Mickoski is a researcher who has spent the past decade-plus investigating such subjects as the philosophy and teachings of ancient Egypt, the philosophy and teachings of the Cathars, Gnostics and other historical groups, as well as the works of Carlos Castenada, among others.

Howdie has also written books about the fascinating history of the world's fairs and expositions of the late 1800s and early 1900s, and postulates what these events can tell us about our history. Please join me for this interview in which we discuss all aspects of these fairs and expos and wonder about what these investigations have to tell us about our current world situation.

Excellent. Way to break down how to come to truth and the study of the same. Also, the key ingredient of questioning all around us, trying and experiencing first-hand all one can, having patience for the answers, and diligently researching until that time arrives. Then, equally important, sharing these truths with your fellow man, who may or may not accept them depending on their journey or lack thereof.

Do we live on a ball earth spinning in an infinite vacuum space, or is this a lie too?

Dear Tom and Howie- you hit this one out of the park—I am in the midst of putting together an email to over 100 people- urging them to watch this- and believe me- I will be watching this again – looking up all the references etc—
here is my outreach to friends- i hope everyone will share this amazing talk- a real eye/heart/soul opener

" Dear Friends
did any of you go to a worlds fair?—would love to hear your memories- i attended when approaching my 11th birthday
my suggestion is that we gather friends and conduct viewings of this incredible conversation and photos asap
My questions: where are we ?
what are we ?
who is guiding this boat?
thank you again to Tom Cowan and Howide Mickoski

Our family went to the worlds fair- and our family’s impression was of vastness- beauty, unbelievable wealth, unbelievalbe science- i was old enough then to know what i was seeing- and i remember the ‘native’ peoples exhibits and how bizarre and creepy they were- my mother spoke about that exhibition for years- I wish i’d been older.
Our family couldn’t believe it was all destroyed- we saw it on the way to Europe- to live in Germany-where we were then shown the nazi ovens and concentration camps—-incredible poverty, bombed out buildings, people living with out running water in an area that had 12’ snow drifts a rather bizarre juxtaposition
i sure wish i’d been to more of these exhibitions— and i will be looking at all the photos that Howdy and Cowan reference
wowzer folks- happy and a wake up new year!
