Giles Slade discusses his book American Exodus – Climate Change and the Coming Flight for Survival.
Some scientists predict the sea will rise one and a half metres before 2100, but rapidly melting polar ice caps could make the real increase much higher. In the coming century, intensifying storms will batter our coasts, and droughts and extreme heat events will be annual threats. All this will occur as population grows, and declining water resources make growing food ever more challenging. What will happen when the United States cannot provide food or fresh water for the overheated, overcrowded cities where 80 per cent of Americans currently live? The good news is that this overall decline of habitability in the mid-latitudes will be matched by increases in the carrying capacity of sparsely populated lands above the 49th parallel. This phenomenon suggests that waves of environmental refugees will travel north as southern conditions worsen. Our northern lands are our Noah’s Ark – a vital refuge in the time of mankind’s greatest need.
American Exodus argues that we are entering a long period of global turmoil which will be characterized by human migration on an unprecedented scale. It is a frighteningly believable survey of our immediate future, but it ends on a note of hope: we may yet survive the coming century of climatic change if we act now to safeguard our shelter of last resort.

Vlatko Vedral on Decoding Reality – The Universe as Quantum Information. What is the nature of reality? Why is there something rather than nothing? These are the deepest questions that human beings have asked, that thinkers East and West have pondered over millennia. For a physicist, all the world is information. The Universe and its workings are the ebb and flow of information. We are all transient patterns of information, passing on the blueprints for our basic forms to future generations using a digital code called DNA. The book concludes by considering the answer to the ultimate question: where did all of the information in the Universe come from? The answers considered are exhilarating and challenge our concept of the nature of matter, of time, of free will, and of reality itself.

Don Cerow discusses his book When the Dragon Wore the Crown. When our ancestors gazed upon the skies thousands of years ago they looked up into the centre of Creation and saw a mighty Dragon, a great celestial serpent with wings circling ceaselessly above them, night after night, century after century. When the Dragon Wore the Crown is a ground breaking book that covers a period of over 6000 years, focusing on what astrologers would call the Ages of Gemini, Taurus and Aries, and taking us through the period of classical astronomy with the Greeks and Romans (circa 7000 BC – 200 AD). The book opens and closes with the Chinese mythological tradition and touches on Sumerian, Babylonian, Phoenician, Hindu, Norse, Native American and even Mayan myths, weaving together many of their celestial serpentine similarities.

Chris Hardy discusses her book DNA of the Gods -The Anunnaki Creation of Eve and the Alien Battle for Humanity. The evidence keeps accumulating from tens of thousands of Sumerian and Middle-Eastern clay tablets already unearthed that we are the descendants of the gods of Sumer, and the numerous striking similarities between the Bible scriptures and these ancient texts reveal that the deity in the Garden of Eden (Edin) was the Sumerian Prince Enlil, the Commander of Earth. It is now clear that the events in Edin (aka Sumer) were no less than a leap in the bio-engineering of the present day human race from the DNA of the aliens or Anunnaki “who came down to Earth”.

Paul Burley discusses his book Stonehenge: As Above, So Below – Unveiling the Spirit Path on Salisbury Plain which identifies the original design and purpose of the Stonehenge ritual landscape. Stonehenge remains one of the most profound mysteries on Earth. We know almost nothing about the people who built it, how they did so, or why. As with the pyramids of Egypt, it seems impossible that Stonehenge could have been constructed using the primitive tools and methods prevalent at the time. Theories about its purpose have ranged from an astronomical observatory to a scared ceremonial, burial or even sacrificial site. What seems clear, however, is that ancient civilizations the world over possessed an innate understanding of the relationship between the cycles of life, death and rebirth, and those of the wider cosmos. The belief that life is everywhere and in all things and that all things are interconnected was fundamental to their worldview. It is vital to keep this in mind when contemplating the enigma that is Stonehenge.

Courtney Brown of The Farsight Institute discusses his latest documentary The Great Pyramid of Giza – The Mystery Solved, a definitive breakthrough study of how one of the most amazing mysteries on Earth was constructed. The Great Pyramid is huge, and it was built with gigantic stone blocks that even today seem nearly impossible to cut, transport, and assemble on the massive scale required long ago when it was originally constructed. Until now, no one on Earth really knew how these vast structures were assembled, at a time when tools were rudimentary, camels and wooden or reed boats were the primary forms of transportation, and manual labor was the only apparent means available to construct anything.

Gary Lachman discusses his book The Caretakers of the Cosmos: Living Responsibly in an Unfinished World, which brings together many strands of esoteric, spiritual and philosophical thought to form a counter-argument to the nihilism that permeates the twenty-first century. Why are we here? Where do we come from? Where are we going? Human beings have asked themselves these questions for millennia. Modern science usually argues that humanity is the chance product of a purposeless universe. All too often, however, its facts are found to be merely theories hanging on the next great new discovery which will give us all the answers, but which somehow always seems to be just around the next corner.

Mark Corske discusses his book ‘Engines of Domination: Political Power and the Human Emergency’. Is political power – armed central authority with states and war – really necessary for human society? Or is it a tool that ruling elites use to live at the expense of everyone else? Engines of Domination offers a theory of political power as a tool; an engine that converts human energy into power and privilege for the rulers. Invented in the Bronze Age and ruthlessly refined for six thousand years, today this engine threatens to destroy our world in a human emergency of converging political and economic crises, resource depletion, and environmental destruction. Applying his theory of political power to Western history, Corske makes a passionate argument that there is only one way to respond to this emergency: Armed central authority must be abolished, giving way to a world of peaceful voluntary communities. Six thousand years of violence and chaos, of abusive power and plundered privilege, is more than long enough. It’s time for something better.

Joseph Chilton Pearce discusses some of the ideas in his book Exploring the Crack in the Cosmic Egg. Originally published in 1974, the book has just been reissued. Although most human beings consider themselves sane, as a species we exhibit almost total insanity. From endless wars to the wholesale destruction of the environment, our actions wreak havoc on all around us, and in the end, on ourselves. But what is the cause of our mass psychosis, and why do so few of us acknowledge it? Do greed and violence truly reflect human nature, or are we victims of some long forgotten tragedy that lives on within the dark depths of our collective unconscious?
