Frank Joseph – Megalithic Mysteries and Lost Civilizations Part Two

May 1, 2019

Frank Joseph 4

Inspired by his book Power Places and the Master Builders of Antiquity Frank Joseph discusses some of the mysteries of the megalithic age and legends of lost civilizations. This is a two part interview. Part one is here. Frank will be speaking at AlienXPO 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?

Brendan Howlin – Modern Druidry

September 19, 2017

Brendan Howlin

“Have you ever thought that there must be a better way to live your life?” In his 2014 book ‘The Handbook Of Urban Druidry – Modern Drudiry For All’ and its 2016 follow-up ‘The Urban Ovate – The Handbook Of Psychological Druidry’, Brendan Howlin holds up a lens through which you and I, if we so choose, may reconsider the path that we are on. Distracted by rampant consumerism, browbeaten by scientific materialism, and fearful of a hostile world apparently plunging into chaos, a corrosive malaise is upon us in this still-new millennium, our lives stripped of meaning and purpose by superficial societies which deny the significance of either.

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 – Sacred Geometry of the Earth

May 15, 2016

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.

Paul Devereux – Stone Age Soundtracks

April 28, 2016

Paul Devereux

Paul Devereux discusses his book Stone Age Soundtracks – The Acoustic Archaeology of Ancient Sites. Until recently, almost all archaeological insights have been gleaned by looking at ancient remains. Now archaeologists are starting to think beyond the visual. One of the most exciting branches of the new multi-sensory archaeology is archaeoacoustics, the archaeology of sound. Ancient civilizations developed far more than fine artwork and magnificent monuments. In songs to their gods, laments for their dead, and the universal human quest for the supernatural, people also made some very strange noises.

James Swagger – Halloween is Not What it Seems…

October 31, 2015

Halloween

James Swagger discusses the origins of Halloween. Most of us know little or nothing about the origins of Halloween. Beyond trick or treating, Jack-o’-lanterns and the piles of plastic bats and skulls that go from supermarket shelf to landfill in a matter of days, Halloween is by and large a mystery. Some possess a vague awareness of its ancient past, but the profound connections with nature and the cosmos from which our age-old rituals arose have been erased from the collective consciousness by centuries of religious persecution and secular humanism. Delving deep into the dark past, we attempt to dig up the almost fathomless roots of Halloween, from the Christianization of Samhain and other Pagan festivals, to tales of sacred bonfires and bloody sacrifice, and alegends of a liminal time when the veil between the real and the unreal would be swept aside.

Graham Hancock – Magicians of the Gods

October 12, 2015

Graham Hancock

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.

Don Cerow – When the Dragon Wore the Crown

May 8, 2014

D1

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.
