Happy Birthday, Graham Hancock

Our favorite author and iconoclast, Graham Hancock, turns 61 this week.

His books are a remarkable, awesome and life-changing look at archeology and it's current restraints.

In the majority of his books, Hancock sets out to change the norm which is the pathetic paradigm that our society as we know it is the apex of civilization as it ever was on the planet.

His latest non-fictional work, Supernatural, is his best yet. This book deviates from the archaeological "norm" of his prior works and explores the Shamanic Legacies around the globe, their common elements and connections with the other worlds "within". This book is the "Gateway Drug" that can open your mind to serious new potential. We had never heard of DMT* before and now we want to know everything.

1992: The Sign and the Seal: The Quest for the Lost Ark of the Covenant

1995: Fingerprints of the Gods: The Evidence of Earth's Lost Civilization

1996: The Message of the Sphinx: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind. Published in the United Kingdom as Keeper of Genesis: A Quest for the Hidden Legacy of Mankind

1998: The Mars Mystery: A Tale of the End of Two Worlds

1998: Heaven's Mirror: Quest for the Lost Civilization

2001: Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest Continues (New Updated Edition)

2002: Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization

2004: Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith

2005: Supernatural: Meeting with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind

2010: Entangled: The Eater of Souls, this is his first book of non-fiction. And if you think Graham is a stuffy old Brit, then be amazed! His "tripping" with ayahuasca has obviously opened his mind to an entirely new level. We LOVED it and can't wait for the sequel.

Graham Hancock's next book, The Master Game, is due soon and is another collaboration with the awesome Robert Bauval. Bauval is known for his Orion Correlation Theory.

Hancock's basic theory is that we are "a civilization, a species with amnesia". Here is a quote from Fingerprints of the Gods:

"..., there is a common legacy of all these world wide ancient civilizations that they do not even address. This legacy lies not in the 'modern' myth of Atlantis, but in the myths and legends of each of these civilizations which make common reference to cataclysms, especially floods, similar gods or god experiences, and precessional and other astronomically significant numbers, etc, etc. The writing, architecture, and agriculture of these ancients are by products of their development which had its roots in a lost civilization of 12,000 years ago."


* We HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend the book, DMT: The Spirit Molecule, by Dr. Rick Strassman. This is conconscious altering stuff, folks. The subject matter is pretty heavy, but the book is easy to read and follow as are Graham's books. It's WELL WORTH the read. This is knowledge everyone should have. An absolute must.
