David Wilcock: All right. Welcome to “Cosmic Disclosure”. I’m your host, David Wilcock, and in this episode, we have a true special surprise for you, one of the original and probably the heaviest of the original Disclosure Project lineup from 1997, the most intense insider in that original meeting, David Adair.
So David, welcome to the show.
David Adair: Thank you. Glad to be here.
Wilcock: Tell us a little bit about . . . Where were you born, and what were some of your early childhood experiences that brought you into this bizarre arena?
Adair: Ha, ha, that’s well-phrased. I was born in Welch, West Virginia in Number 10 Pocahontas Coalfields.
Kind of like Hunger Games, you’ve got different districts. I was Number 10 District.
Wilcock: Ha, ha.
Adair: And being relative, about three miles from where I was born is Coalwood, and that’s where Homer Hickam of October Sky was born.
And he and I both agree there must have been something in the water in that place. But when . . . I knew there was something different about me.
My mother told me a story. She said I was only one and a half years old, and I was playing with a toy, and, of course, it’s a model rocket, but it got caught between the refrigerator and the wall. And she didn’t do anything, just watched me.
I was looking around, found a broom, could barely walk, get over there, sweep the rocket out, pick it up and take off.
And my mother said to my dad, Fred, “Fred, there’s something not normal about that child.
Wilcock: Ha, ha.
Adair: “You know, he’s already got tools and recognition. He’s only one and a half.”
Adair: So by the time I was seven, I would go to the local library, and boy, that’s when it started. I started reading books in the 600 area, the science, really hard science, and then mathematics.
And this elderly librarian named Mrs. Hunt, she was watching me and said, “Are you reading those books?”
And I didn’t mean to be smart, I said, “Well, there’s no pictures in them.”
And she looks at it, and she goes, “Okay, let’s see what you know.” So she grabs a book, just a random . . . I think it was one on singularities with black holes, and it’s just really basic theorems, because around 1962, ’63, there wasn’t a whole lot on the subject.
Adair: But you know, I read up on it, and I started explaining to her exactly how in detail it works with the mass star collapsing and graviton fields, event horizon, the opening.
Adair: And I was kind of drawing pictures for her, and she’s watching me. And she said, “Man, you really do read this stuff.”
I said, “Yeah.”
Well, how many of these books have you read?
I said, “All of them.”
And she goes, “Why are you reading them now?”
“I’m going through them and correcting the mistakes in the books.”
And she just kind of stared at me, and I couldn’t tell whether she believed me or not or just thought I was being smart.
But she said, “Tell you what. Would you like to get other books?”
I was like, “Oh, God. How can I?”
“Don’t tell anyone, and I’ll use resources and order them for you,” and she’d get stacks of them.
Adair: And from other books, there’d be references to other books. So that’s how I built my list, and I must have read about, oh, God, 1,800 books in a few years.
Adair: And that was a real basis to work from at that point.
Wilcock: What ignited your passion the most in these 1,800 books or so that you read?
Adair: Space travel, pretty much so. Although I really liked all sciences – Earth science. I really liked Earth science, but space travel and propulsion, where it could go from then to maybe 100 years from now.
I just liked reading what people were trying to do or thinking of doing.
Wilcock: What was the most surprising mistake that you found in the books?
