    He was looking for a certain kind of computer from the past to do...something? It's been a while since Coast to Coast AM has talked about him.

    I'm way into it.

    Whoever concocted the story was one hell of a philosopher. Mind fucking blown by some of his statements on the nature of time, the universe, and morality.

    The guy was of higher intelligence there is no doubt about it. His knowledge on physics was mind blowing.

    It was traced back to two brothers, one who was a lawyer in the Dakotas or something and the other was in Florida. Nothing was ever proven though.
