Now that we are living in the Information Age, we are learning at exponential rates. Our knowledge of what lies beyond our planet has grown rapidly. Just last week, NASA announced the discovery of hundreds of planets, something that even 10 years ago was solely theory. As we look beyond our own boundaries to learn more about our potential future, we are also looking inward to learn more about our past. Myths and legends, long part of our oral history, have been given historical context, sometimes exposing the truth behind some, and leaving others as a greater mystery. While some legends of the past seem too fantastical to be true, we are learning more every day and have to ask – what if they are indeed true?
This week on One Cell, One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes returning guest, the delightful Rene Compton – creator of the children’s tutorials, “Computer Puppets” and the majical Gophette — presents her charming reading of ‘THE JEWELED DRAGONFLY’ – a mythical – fascinating tale — and returning guest, Film Producer Veronica Hendricks, for a discussion on the reality of our most fascinating myths and legends.
The Jeweled Dragonfly – Audio and Story by Rene Compton:
Some of the most pervasive myths are centered around cryptozoology, the study of creatures whose existence is still under debate due to lack of evidence. This includes living examples of creatures that are otherwise considered extinct, such as non-avian dinosaurs and animals whose existence lacks physical evidence but which appear in folklore, such as Bigfoot and chupacabras. Among these creatures are unicorns and dragons, both of which hold enormous significance in fiction, but have yet to authenticated as having existed on our planet.
However, recently dated a fossil of Elasmotherium sibiricum found in Kazakhstan has recently proven a “unicorn” was still alive 29,000 years ago. Thought to have been extinct for more than 350,000 years, this creature looked more like a rhinoceros than a horse, weighing about 9,000 pounds. It’s easy to see how through oral history, the legend of this quadroped could have changed from a large, rhinoceros-like creature, to that of the horse-with-a-horn that we are more familiar with now.
Join Dr. Hildy and her guests this week as they discuss the veracity of this and other ancient legends on One Cell One Light Radio!
What If Legends are True?
May 18, 2016, OCOLR – Dr. Hildy
What is a legend? A legend is defined as a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but unauthenticated by Webster’s Dictionary. Currently, we are living in a time when science is proving the historical findings of anthropologist to be true. It is a time when myth, legend and the scientific validation of natural history is being proven to be TRUE.
1st Hour Guest: Rene’ Compton
“Computer Puppets Go to the Head of the Class”
The “Shark Tank” TV show missed a good one. Last September, Rene’ Compton of Orlando, Florida, sent in an audition tape and made it through the first round but then was cut. She could have shown them a thing or two: How she has Kindergartners already typing in public and private Florida schools and Preschoolers asking Grandpa how much RAM he has on his home computer.
Compton takes her cues from Sesame Street by using her Computer Puppets to teach young children how to use the computer. “If I do this in a fun, interactive way, then frustration could be eliminated. Kids are easier to teach than adults because I took away the fear of the unknown. When Sesame Street first came out, a lot of people couldn’t read. Many adults learned to read with it.”
Compton heads up Compton Learning Co, Inc., ( www.computerpuppets.com ) with her learning program for kids from Kindergarten through Fifth Graders using puppets via a professional teaching video in four parts.
Part Four is about Internet safety , and it features the Byte family. There is even a surprise guest portraying Megabyte, the Mom. It’s none other than Dr.Hildy voicing Megabyte. “It’s just a fun way for the kids to learn – and, of course, the adults,also,” says Compton, whose fertile imagination has created 24 individual puppets.

SURPRISE GUEST APPEARANCE: Gophette of ComputerPuppets.com!
Integrative Health Systems (IHS) has entered into a new joint venture with Rene Compton of Compton Learning Co. Inc., which features an innovative teaching approach in computer technology for kindergarteners through fifth graders.
Compton came up with the idea in 2000, using computer puppets in a private Orlando school, the Brush Arbor Christian School. “Kids will listen to characters,” says Compton. Included in the puppet gang is Gopher the computer mouse, and now, he has an alter ego, his sister Gophette, who is the pink epitome of cute femininity.
And so, now enters IHS to assist Gophette, a string puppet, with some fou fou, namely Baci Mi Rose Petal Gel, the brainstorm of Industrial Toxicologist Dr. Hildegarde Staninger, who has created many other specialty gels to treat the body. It is something for the kids and the “young at heart,”says Staninger.
“Rose is the highest vibration there is. It emits love, clarity, awakening and brings you to your highest potential.”
