When John Murray Spear, a man of extreme faith, began receiving messages in 1853 from the spirits of some of the greatest minds of all time, he believed himself to be chosen as the father of these geniuses’ greatest invention: THE NEW MOTIVE POWER. A machine of perpetual motion that would not only supply energy to the world, but free people of the shackles that came with work. It was to be the new messiah. John Benedict Buesher, Doctor of Religious Studies and author of The Remarkable Life of John Murray Spear: Agitator for the Spirit Land, joins us to discuss Spear’s truly bizarre life, beliefs, and inventions.
