Frank Joseph – Megalithic Mysteries and Lost Civilizations Part Two

May 1, 2019

The peoples of the Neolithic era bequeathed us some of the most amazing achievements and profound puzzles in human history. From cryptic stone circles to arcane rituals and rites and a science of the stars we are still struggling to comprehend, ancestors once regarded as ignorant and inferior continue to emerge as remarkably advanced, and arguably much more in tune with their natural surroundings than contemporary civilization.

England’s Stonehenge and Newgrange in Ireland are but two of the better known Neolithic sites in the British Isles, but throughout Europe, hundreds of locations – some just as breathtaking – feature the remains of Neolithic construction. What are we to make of the quarrying, cutting, and transportation techniques – some of which we are unable to replicate today – which made possible the manipulation of vast stone monoliths, some weighing several hundred tons? And why was the specific type and location of these stones so crucial to the ancients?

We also consider just what befell the civilizations of high antiquity, not just in Europe, but around the world. Some slid into steep decline, while others vanished virtually overnight. Immortalized in mythic tales such as those of Atlantis and Lemuria, of the Biblical Flood and Great Deluge, can the apparent cataclysms and catastrophes of aeons past teach us anything about the present or indeed, the future?

James Howard Kunstler – The Geography of Nowhere

March 15, 2018

JHK 2

James Howard Kunstler discusses his book ‘The Geography of Nowhere – The Rise and Decline of America’s Man-Made Landscape’. First published in 1994 but sadly more relevant than ever, ‘The Geography of Nowhere’ traces America’s evolution from a nation of Main Streets and coherent communities to a land where every place is like no place in particular, where the cities are dead zones, and the countryside is a wasteland of cartoon architecture and parking lots. In elegant and often hilarious prose, Kunstler depicts America’s evolution from the Pilgrim settlements to the modern car-centric suburb in all its ghastliness, adding up the huge economic, social, and spiritual costs that the U.S. is paying for its gas-guzzling lifestyle.

Thomas Sheridan – The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology Part Two

November 12, 2016

Thomas Sheridan 5

Thomas Sheridan discusses his book The Druid Code: Magic, Megaliths and Mythology. The Druid Code sets out to examine the wider concept of magic and mythology being utilised as an early form of social psychoanalysis by the druids, how magic theory developed from this, and how this evolution of ritual magic eventually made its way into folklore, witchcraft and Freemasonry. The Druid Code utilises mythology connected to sacred sites, developing a bidirectional conduit back through time, to reveal what took place in 2500BC – a shift in human consciousness that made humans what we are today. From Atlantis to alchemy, you will never see history in the same way again.

Mark Vidler

Mark Vidler discusses Sacred Geometry of the Earth – The Ancient Matrix of Monuments and Mountains. From continent to continent across the globe, Mark Vidler and Catherine Young reveal that order is everywhere on Earth. On remote islands, soaring summits, and level deltas, they unveil natural topographic patterns related to pi, the golden ratio, and right-triangle geometry. And as the planet’s design emerges, it becomes clear that this hidden order in nature decided the location of ancient monuments the world over.

Gary Lachman – The Secret Teachers of the Western World

February 23, 2016

Gary Lachman 3

Gary Lachman discusses his book The Secret Teachers of the Western World. This epic study unveils the esoteric masters who have covertly impacted the intellectual development of the West. Running alongside the mainstream of Western intellectual history there is another current which, in a very real sense, should take pride of place, but which for the last few centuries has occupied a shadowy, inferior position, somewhere underground. In this clarifying, accessible, and fascinating study, Lachman explores the Western esoteric tradition as a thought movement with ancient roots and modern expressions, which, in a broad sense, regards the cosmos as a living, spiritual, meaningful being and humankind as having a unique obligation and responsibility within it. This is in stark contrast to much of modern science, which sees the universe as a meaningless flow of matter and energy, and human beings as pointless accidents.
