(22.9 Mb) This episode's main purpose is to share with you the email response sent in by Jason Godesky - Techno Shaman and author of "The Thirty Theses", a series of papers detailing the anthropological research supporting the revolutionary ideas of Daniel Quinn. Also, we welcome James Stubbs to the Frappr Map, we hear from Geekbeard, and read a brief letter from Derek. A letter that ties-in to one of the thirty theses with a synchronous idea, but arrives at a tribal behavior from another direction. A quick tip from me about turning large text files into portable mp3's. If you missed this link below, here it is again - CBC's Best of Ideas and the three part interview with Richard Kearney. Look for the mp3 files entitled "The God who May Be." Please treat yourself to a wealth of superb insights and refreshing ideas by hearing what he has to say about his religion of the imagination. As you hear it, keep in mind what Mister Tee wrote, and what you may have heard Tracy Hickman say on the recent Round Table Episode. The CBC page is updated every monday, so if you don't see the files there please search their archives. Episode 29 will explore email responses to Mister Tee's letter in IDDFO...

(29.5 Mb) Geek Beard and Timewind are welcomed to the Frappr Map! - Sarah shares some mathematical insights into infinity along with the humorous possibility of who may or may not exist according to Douglas Adams. (After meeting Nev, I am now convinced that HE is real, and I am a figment of my imagination.)Curt the Camera Guy lets us in on just how extensive his travels are, and offers a wealth of imagery from all over the United States. Thanks for being handy with that camera! - The main topic for #27: The insanity of religious intolerance. Mister Tee makes a strong case for clearing up our vision and taking a good long look at what's true and what isn't about people, regardless of what faith they practice. Also shared are insights into the Adam and Eve story.

(34.6 Mb) PART 2 of 3 - Listener feedback enriches the episode with insight, humor and PROOF that Role Playing Gamers know what really matters regardless of how mad the human world becomes. Takers? Leavers? Mythmakers and the end of Civilization? Just what has anim5 got against a telepathic Gorilla? The question for Part 3 - If we weren't supposed to invent civilization, just what were we supposed to do? And since we did, what are we supposed to do now?

(35.0 Mb) It had a whole extra week to grow in, so it's 23 minutes longer. This episode is the Dream Show. Including a 32 minute anim5 mini-drama portraying a nightmare done in the style of 1950's comedy "The Goon Show". This installment took an extra week to track down and capture, but now that it's uploaded the nightmare is over.

(22.6 Mb) Homo Sapiens survive by transforming their environment into whatever they need. 'starts with spears and skins, ends in global warming and a poisoned planet. How did evolution churn out dangerous mutants like us? A very uplifting show for me, because of the email I received, how encouraging and complimentary it was and because of the special people it came from! An excellent reply from Nev of "Does My Geek Look Big In This" to last week's question: "Are human beings a part of nature? If we evolved here on earth why did we evolve into a species that no longer belongs here on earth? Or have we?" In depth discussion of Nev's response -and of the main mystery of human evolution. Some goofy playacting in the Cave Man tradition. Two are smart and well fed. Two are dumb and dead. A lament that "Ishmael" by Daniel Quin was delivered too late for me to make use of in this episode. But the topic for this show will be explored again soon, partly because it's so vast and partly because of that book. Thank you Derek from Texas for pointing it out to me!

(26.0 Mb) Change the course of mighty rivers? Bend steel in your bare hands? Or chuck the whole daydream and do something useful instead? Episode 21 posts early thanks to a merciful Labor Day weekend ! In this show, we go into the responses to the powers of Superman question from episode 20. A punch up of the sidebar topic "The Seven Wonders of the World" . Then, the announcement and showcase of the wonderful responses and links to the call for creativity. The responses and the creative gifts came in from Diggersstory in the form of links to fine image sites, and from The Norwegian Viking in the form of a link to his graphic design site as well as a fantastic original piece of music. An additional 'creativity' submission too is presented with the Fantasy Adventure Novel " Hosting the Kazimeer " by C.E Sales. And finally . . . A new feature for International Detective Dragons From Outer Space! Old Time Radio episodes ! A new one every week for you to download gratis! The hope is to tie them in to the topic or theme of the IDDFOS episode they'll be presented with. The Question for Next week's episode: Are human beings a part of nature?

(12.1 Mb) Heads Up - Round Up - Change Up.Late, short , but potent with news. IDDFOS will be undergoing a change for the better ( I sincerely hope ).Reflections on the show to date, it's pluses and minuses. A decision to change the format - shape, delivery, quality, consistency and all other aspects of the podcast that may serve to make it a more enjoyable audio offering. A brand new 60 second promo! A high-speed summary of all the podcasts from 1 to 19 ( 2 minutes and 50 seconds ) An appreciation of creativity in all it's forms, but especially the forms exercised by you. An invitation to the listeners and a promise from me that's good for the next two weeks. Episode 21 will post 2 weeks from now ( September 6th ). In the intervening time, much work, re-tooling and production will be taking place on my end. One of the subjects for episode 21 will be: " If you had all of the powers of SUPERMAN without any of the moral or ethical constraints associated with him, what would YOU do?" Send in your answers to email@example.com and they will be read on the show. Best of days and look for a show in September that's more fun to listen to.

(27.5 Mb) Confirmation through theoretical physics that everything you or anyone else can possibly imagine, actually exists. One little twist can bend a reality. A practicum in creating your own dimensional paradox with a Mobius strip. Clumsy talk about dimensions beyond the fourth. - Branching timelines are all well and good, but they don't allow for Santa Claus in this universe. For him, we need alternate beginnings. - Simulate the BIG BANG with a paper bag, a few pounds of assorted dice and a baseball bat . . . - When you release a Genie, are you getting your wishes granted here, or are you just getting shifted across realities? ( Next time you release a Genie, please let me know.) - When we add up the collective unconscious + visions of mythic truth + human archetypes, do we get evidence of beings and concepts that bridge the gap between a multitude of genuine alternate realities?

(28.7 Mb) Episode 18 takes a step back into episode 12 with speculation about deciphering an alien written language ( Ours - if found inside the granite block ). There's a ton of classic literature we'd like to see sent out into space and discovered millions of years from now. . . but is it reasonable to assume that even the most advanced space faring intelligence would have a snowball's chance in hell of translating anything we've written into their own language? Also, a brief closer examination of our own foul-ups in translation, cultural oddities and obsolete technologies for storing and retrieving information. If we lose the true meaning of translated languages over distance and decades - and our own digital storage is evolving fast enough to make ancient archives ( floppy disks from fourteen years ago ) unreadable, what chance would an alien have of reading one of our DVD's or hard drives? - Speaking in metaphor just like the Tamarians in "Darmok". - The "Felix the Cat" song is a big fat Lie ! What kind of dirty trick was that whole "Tower of Babel" incident? This week's Question comes at the very end. What forms of communication transcend spoken and written language? ( And what inform...

(30.4 Mb) Part 2 of 2 - Massive Multi-player Online Role Playing Games. No way to fit the topic into a single show, so be sure to check out last week's episode. Here in part two I try to concentrate more on the original questions that prompted these episodes. First a brief treatment of MMO games that are not geared toward violent behavior. Next the audio observations of Mr. Tee - the second of the two audio files he sent for the last episode. And finally an attempt to answer his three primary questions: Can MMORPG's ruin lives? Can MMORPG's save lives? Is Life a Game?

(29.9 Mb) Part 1 of 2 - Massive Multi-player Online Role Playing Games. No way to fit the topic into a single show, so next week will be Part 2. How do I begin talking about something that is, essentially an entire world inside this one with real people running around in it. How much of an MMO is "only a game"? If they're supposed to be for role playing, why is it so difficult to find role playing when you enter them? Oddly enough . . . the slightest glance at the most successful online game out there ( World of Warcraft ) displays the very same paradox discussed in the last show. MMORPG's show one of the pinnacles of earthbound human achievement in Art, Music and Technology - with an astounding heap of bloody violence thrown in. Is it an online game or is it theater or is it both?

(30.6 Mb) We got here and remain here as human beings. Shall we continue to war with each other, or is it time to replace ourselves with something better? Some time ago I, along with many others, got a request from Patter of "Diggers Story" to take a moment and record a short audio message - defining Peace and what I'm doing to help bring it about. It stopped me dead in the water. While I can certainly define what I think Peace is . . . knowing what to do and taking steps to make it a reality worldwide defies my abilities. It also frames the question for this week. : Is it possible to have universal peace so long as we continue to act like humans? I take an hour here to try and answer that. I'm pretty sure I fail, but in the process I bring out a variety of artistic references that hold a mirror up to bits and pieces of the human animal. Maybe the reflections can help reveal why the goal of world peace has yet to be achieved.

(33.9 Mb) This episode delves into ways of improving character portrayal while playing table-top or other Role Playing Games. What relates this to all humans? The simple fact that acting is lying. Now, admittedly, describing the dynamics of performance and relaying some of my experiences and observations about vocalization and character portrayal, may not be all that useful to experienced RPG veterans. And it can be accurately argued that steady role players have done more acting than I have for the past 15 years, simply by regular Game Play. But even as I think of all these things . . . . somehow it still doesn't manage to shut me up.

(27.7 Mb) The Ultimate Time Capsule. - This installment acts on assumptions. Assume that the human race does not survive long enough to colonize the solar system nor move any further out into space. Assume also that an object we send out of the solar system WILL be found by an intelligent space-faring society. The Object is a Granite block 10 feet by 10 feet by 2 feet thick with 12 compartments around its outer edges. Since it will survive the death of our sun and the eventual destruction of the earth, what would you carve on its surface, and what would you place in the sealed compartments as evidence of who we were?

(22.0 Mb) PART - 2 Round about the turn of the Last century George Bernard Shaw wrote a play called "Man and Superman" which he called a comedy and a philosophy. The premise of the play was that a wealthy, social revolutionary and confirmed bachelor named Tanner was attempting to run away from a woman he was destined to marry, and was captured by thieves in the desert. In the desert night, he has a dream which is the third act of the play. In the dream, the characters from Mozart's opera ' Don Giavonni ', come to life or rather come to death - and are placed in Hell. These two episodes ( 10 and 11 ) consist of my attempt to re-create a plausible reading from the 1952 Columbia Masterworks album of that Third act dream, popularly titled "Don Juan In Hell". While I may not agree with all the points made in the piece, the dialog - the concepts and the philosophies packed into this work are nothing short of brilliant. As far as the "mission statement" of Internationl Detective Dragons from Outer Space goes, - addressing questions of mystery that are important to all of the Human race . . . . This work fits that purpose like a tailored glove.
