This week on The Gralien Report, as we celebrate Independence Day 2017, Micah and Matthew take a moment to reflect on misconceptions about the holiday, before looking at the news. Items of discussion include an unusual plane crash that occurred over the weekend, as well as how dinosaurs and their extinction paved the way for a familiar amphibian. And what is the mystery of the phone call Micah received in the wee hours of the morning from Roswell, New Mexico?

In the second hour, Matt gives us some history about Albert Herpin, the man who never slept. Is it really possible for a person not to sleep at all throughout their lives? Finally, we conclude the show with a lengthy discussion about the secret awareness of plants, and how the flora around us may be far more in tune with its environment than we give them credit. Could there even be things about plant awareness that we may learn, which could give us further insights into our own hidden potential as humans?

  1. Mostly plants like all life teach us that we use our intelligence to excuse and make excuses for exploiting things. The way a vegan views a plant is no different than the view a slave owner had of slaves. They are below us and so free to use as we wish consequence free. And that as our connection to the things we kill to survive becomes increasingly disconnected from us so does the morality building involved.
