Seth Farber's brilliant book The Spiritual Gift of Madness updates RD Laing and Thomas Szasz for the post-millennial meltdown. Today, as the world is threatened by ecological catastrophe, freedom-crushing technology, an increasingly fraudulent monetary system, and war-mongering false-flagging psychopaths in power, we need messiahs more than ever! Yet if anyone starts to have visionary experiences - or even serious problems adapting to our insane social system - they are force-fed toxic psychiatric "medications" that have been proven not to work, that are as addictive as heroin, and that slowly kill their minds, bodies, and spirits. Madmen and madwomen of the world unite - throw away your meds, declare yourself a messiah, and get out there and save the world! (Note - we Muslims could use a million Mad Mullahs, not to mention a Mahdi...I'm thinking of borrowing Seth's idea and starting a 'Mahd Pride' movement of crazy utopian Muslims...)

Second hour: Ali Adams of HeliWave.com is a Muslim mathematician and visionary thinker who has found a great many amazing prime number patterns in the Qur'an. He has some interesting eschatological insights (compare to those Imran Hosein expressed on my show last week) such as:
"The strange sky sounds heard over Malaysia and elsewhere may be caused by solar flares or Earth’s core changes due to the Earth slowing down at different rates for different layers as Planet X approaches or due to our solar system sailing through an ever frequency-increasing standing scalar wave."
