The Return of the Elder Race & Opening the Gateway of the Fifth Kingdom

Nefertiti, reportedly 'a princess from a foreign country' became married to Akhenaton.

By VICTORIA LEPAGE — René Guénon’s assertion, culled from ancient esoteric sources, that in the remote past humanity’s first civilisation arose in the ice-free Arctic zone is not without geological support. According to the well-known researcher J.S. Gordon, “there is no scientific doubt that the polar ice caps have melted and reformed many, many times over and that this has always affected human society (plus animal and plant species), often catastrophically.”1  He points out that the … [Read more...]

Searching for the Dawn & Demise of Ancient Civilisation

01Schoch_SphinxPhoto_SchochOnRight

By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, PH.D. — When and where did civilisation begin? How far back in time does high culture go? Indeed, what do we mean by such terms as civilisation, or sophisticated and high culture? When I was in college, more years ago than I perhaps care to remember, I learned the standard story which still holds sway in many circles: Civilisation and high culture date back to, at most, perhaps five or six thousand years ago. A handy marker for recognising a true civilisation was … [Read more...]

The Lost City of Angkor Wat & the Mysteries of a Great Asian Civilisation

IMG_8577

By WALTER MASON— Angkor Wat is a vast stone temple at the heart of an ancient stone city. But at the ends of its corridors and the centres of its hidden rooms lie surprising Buddhist shrines still active in a place abandoned for hundreds of years. These Buddhist statues are imposters, hasty late additions to a religious building constructed to accommodate the myths and rituals of Hinduism. They are splendid still, some draped incongruously in new and garish orange robes, the polyester … [Read more...]

Dogon Cosmology & Egyptian Hieroglyphic Writing

FIG1 - Dogon

By LAIRD SCRANTON Along the cliffs of the Bandiagara escarpment in Mali – south of the Niger river and north of Upper Volta – live the modern-day Dogon tribe, a reclusive society consisting of approximately 300,000 individuals. To all outward appearances, they are a primitive tribe, who manage a near-subsistence living as onion farmers, metal-workers, weavers, and artisans under the often difficult conditions of a Sahelian climate, one that typically provides four months of rain followed by an … [Read more...]

Before The Pharaohs: The Evidence for Advanced Civilisation in Egypt’s Mysterious Prehistory

anubis

By EDWARD MALKOWSKI— There is no other place on Earth like Egypt’s Giza Plateau. Anyone with even a slight interest in history and civilisation is aware of this fact. For on this plateau there stands the Great Pyramids and their sculpted guardian, the Great Sphinx. Although there are plenty of theories, no one really knows who built the Giza Pyramids or carved the Sphinx, or when they were constructed. Any statement as to who built them, or when they were built, is pure theory. In light of … [Read more...]

Consider the Kali Yuga

egy27

By JOHN ANTHONY WEST— Academics abhor a mystery the way nature abhors a vacuum, yet in nature there are no vacu­ums, while in academia there are many mysteries. In no field of science or scholarship are there more (or more glaring) mysteries than in Egyptology. Yet, at the same time, there is no field in which mysteries are more systematically denied. Pick up a book, any book, written by a creden­tialed Egyptologist and you will find nothing but agreement – about everything but the most … [Read more...]

The Forbidden Legacy of a Fallen Race

bwjwatcher

By ANDREW COLLINS— Angels are something we associate with beautiful Pre-Raphaelite and renaissance paintings, carved statues accompanying gothic architecture and supernatural beings who intervene in our lives at times of trouble. For the last 2000 years this has been the stereotypical image fostered by the Christian Church. But what are angels? Where do they come from, and what have they meant to the development of organised religion? Many people see the Pentateuch, the first five books of … [Read more...]

The Mystery of Göbekli Tepe and Its Message to Us

Pages from ndmain122

By ROBERT M. SCHOCH, PH.D.— What were our ancestors like 10,000 or more years ago? The most common image is one of small nomadic bands endlessly in pursuit of the next meal. Men hunted game while women and children gathered fruits, seeds, roots, shoots, insects, and other edibles. The height of technology was a finely worked stone knife blade or spear point; nets, baskets, and cordage were also put to good use. Permanent structures were superfluous, for the group never stayed in one place … [Read more...]

Who Was Moses?

michelangelo_moses1

By Robert Temple— When people are spoken of constantly, we feel we know them. Christians and Jews have been talking about Moses for thousands of years, so they assume they know who he was. But is this an illusion? Is it possible that no one really knows who Moses was? That the evidence about him is contradictory and enigmatic? Is it even possible that he never existed except in fable? Even religious fundamentalists have an immediate problem with Moses, and the accounts of him in the biblical … [Read more...]

The Mystery of the Crystal Skulls

crystal-skull-close-up1

By Chris Morton & Ceri Louise Thomas— An old native American legend describes the existence of thirteen ancient crystal skulls, the size of human skulls, with moveable jaws that were said to speak or sing. The legend tells that these crystal skulls contain important information about some of the great mysteries of life and the universe. They contain knowledge about the past history of our species on this planet, and information about mankind’s true purpose and future destiny. The … [Read more...]
