I can’t help wondering how much longer the media will keep silent on the Bosnian pyramids because, if they are a hoax, it was one that was perpetrated on us at least 12,000 years ago. This is now the official dating of the deposition of the soil that covers them. So it seems that whoever built these pyramids, which later became covered with grass and trees, must have had one hell of a sense of humour. Continue reading
The time of Halloween at the end of October is closely followed by Remembrance Sunday in which the dead of the bankers’ wars are commemorated. In this way, the powers-that-be have robbed us of a very important stage along the Wheel of the Year. They have transplanted one of their festivals on to our own which has great significance for our own Rivers of Blood, not just those symbolised by the red poppy. It used to be the time when the Celts marked Samhain, when the Pleiades began to set. Samhain was a time when we honoured all our ‘dead’ – in other words, we remembered all our ancestors now living in the Other Worlds.
To study the history of the theory of human evolution is not to study the development of a science. Soon after beginning such an enterprise, we soon realise that what we’re faced with are, in fact, the differing attitudes and beliefs that man has deemed to be politically correct over the centuries about who he is, and where he stands in the universe. Continue reading
There’s recently been a move within the fields of archaeology and anthropology to downplay the capacity for symbolic thought of the Neanderthals, and to think of them as brainless, club-carrying buffoons from the Planet of the Apes. However, it is only our post-hoc value judgements that equate symbolic expression with ‘progress’. Continue reading
Kevin Costner’s Waterworld was set in a post-Apocalyptic world. The whole floating, sea-borne community only existed as a reaction to a worldwide disaster. But what about a Waterworld scenario that is not a reaction to anything — one in which man regarded the sea as much his natural habitat as he did the land? Continue reading
The oldest rock art ever found in the British Isles was discovered last summer in a deep underground cave in Wales, somewhere on the Gower Peninsula. It shows the faint scratching of a reindeer with a spear in its neck, and it’s dated to around 14,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age. (It’s not the cave in the picture above, by the way; that is known as the Hall of the Bulls from the Lascaux caves in France, where the paintings are even older, dating to around 20,000 years ago. ) Continue reading
When Pink Floyd came up with this line, it struck a chord in our deepest archetypal memories ~ which is what musicians always need to do if they’re going to get a worldwide hit. The Dark Side of Moon went on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time. So which seam of long-buried memories were Waters and Co tapping into? Continue reading
As explained in The Faery wisdom about race, Lucifer and the rivers of blood, Lucifer is not a devil, demon or even a male spirit. The word ‘lucifer’ or lightbringer in the Bible refers to the star of the morning, or Venus. This may come as a surprise to those who think that Lucifer is male, but more than that… as I set out to show here, she is represented as the Double Goddess throughout history, who is still in the sky at dawn, as the morning star, and is the first to rise at dusk as the evening star.
Excavations at Gobekli Tepe in Turkey — at 11,000 years old, assessed to be the oldest temple on Earth — are not yet even halfway through. But will archaeologists eventually find that Gobekli Tepe is a labyrinth, or even a series of labyrinths, and that the carving on the stones are star constellations leading the initiate along his self-transformative journey? Continue reading
One of the complaints of traditionalists about ancient star maps is that what’s seen in the night skies only roughly matches that of the illustrations. But they weren’t meant to be accurate. That wasn’t their purpose. For instance, Cassiopeia doesn’t resemble a reclining woman. It’s a metaphor. Once we understand this, our ancestors’ collective mythos suddenly opens up to us. Continue reading
A paper was published in 2011 by Quaternary International about likely evidence for burial rites at the 50,000-year-old Neanderthal burial ground, Sima de las Palomas in Murcia, Southeast Spain. Continue reading
TO our earliest ancestors, both death and birth were considered to be spirit initiations. In this dialogue, we unravel the rituals around childbirth going back at least as far as the last Ice Age. Continue reading
