Bernie Taylor discusses his book Before Orion – Finding the Face of the Hero.
(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)
This is a two part interview. Part one is here.
The myth of the hero’s journey is at the heart of folklore worldwide among the ancients, indigenous peoples past and present, and even in our modern society as metaphors, allegories, archetypes, and symbols in popular culture. Before Orion explores a deeper root for this myth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds.
Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. He addresses a profound elephant in the room by opening up uncharted places in our history, exploring ideas unacceptable to mainstream archaeology and anthropology.
Although we have largely lost our fundamental connections to nature, our past, each other and even ourselves, essentially we are the same as our ancient ancestors. Far from being redundant relics of a bygone age, their stories are vitally important in understanding who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

A giant comet that had entered the solar system from deep space thousands of years earlier, broke into multiple fragments, some of which struck the Earth causing devastation on a scale unseen since the extinction of the dinosaurs. The impacts from comet fragments a mile wide approaching at more than 60,000 miles an hour instantly liquidized millions of square miles of ice, destabilizing the Earth’s crust and causing the global Deluge that is remembered in myths all around the world. A second series of equally devastating impacts caused further cataclysmic flooding around 11,600 years ago, the exact date that Plato gives for the annihilation of Atlantis.

Walter Cruttenden discusses some of the ideas in his 2005 book Lost Star of Myth and Time. The myth and folklore of ancestral peoples around the world hints at a vast cycle of time, with alternating Dark and Golden Ages. Plato called it the Great Year. Long believed to be a fairy tale, there is now new astronomical evidence to show it has a basis in fact. Moreover, because it is caused by the acceleration of our Sun around another star, we learn that the Earth should soon be carried into a region of space that will have a beneficial effect on our atmosphere, nudging mankind into a higher state of consciousness.

Andrew Collins discusses his book The Cygnus Mystery – Unlocking the Ancient Secret of Life’s Origins in the Cosmos. For 17,000 years the constellation of Cygnus, the celestial swan, otherwise known as the Northern Cross, has fascinated the world. It has defined the layout of ancient stone and earthern structures both in the new world and ancient world. Its cruciform star pattern is probably behind the root symbols of major religions, including Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Orphism. Cygnus might even have defined the placement on the ground of the Pyramids of Giza. Why has this one constellation had such an impact on humanity?
