Présentation de l'éditeur

Thinkers at the forefront in alternative theories on history, the origins of civilization, technology, and consciousness

• With contributions by Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval, Mark Booth, Richard Hoagland, Robert Schoch, John Anthony West, and others

• Topics range from quantum philosophy and paranormal phenomena to the secret history of NASA, instant polar shifts, and ancient Martian civilizations

• Explores where our present time fits into the cycle of human existence

A revolution of thought is under way in our world, fostered by decades of research and well-documented evidence by alternative theory pioneers such as Graham Hancock, John Anthony West, Robert Bauval, and Robert Schoch. These provocative, cutting-edge scholars now represent a direct challenge to the academic establishment as the paradigms of science and history shift and their ideas gain acceptance.

Representing the latest, often controversial findings in scientific and historical research, this anthology of essays commissioned by Graham Hancock, bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, covers the forefront in alternative theories on history, the origins of civilization, technology, and consciousness with topics ranging from quantum philosophy and paranormal phenomena to the ancient use of electromagnetism, the effect of cosmic rays on human evolution, and NASA’s cover-up of ancient Martian civilizations. Recognizing that many recent discoveries are actually rediscoveries of lost knowledge from past civilizations, these authors seek to understand where, within the bigger picture of human knowledge, our present time fits into the cycle of human existence.

I rarely review books, but I felt this title required additional information to the potential buyer. This book is represented as a collection of writings on the Lost Knowledge of the Ancients. Unfortunately, I found it more of an opportunity for a group of authors to pimp their books.
Each chapter is an abstract of a particular book by the author whom wrote it. Some of the chapters are an honest effort to provide an interesting summary of their books. Most chapters are devoid of real information and time is often spent attempting to convince you to buy their book or video on the subject. A search of the topics on the internet would have yielded just as much information at no cost whatsoever.
No serious subject can withstand the carney hucksterism of the snake oil salesman. It demeans the material. It pollutes the few authors whom make an honest attempt to give a chapter of useful information. As the material is often controversial, at best, all the more reason to err on the side of a more complete treatment.
In a difficult economy, it behooves all of us to not waste each other's money.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Eye-Opener - Sure to Challenge Mainstream Opinion 5 janvier 2011
Par Anne Wright - Publié sur
It seems to me that there is some kind of intellectual battle going on. In this battle I think we are all pawns. I say this only because I am reasonably well-versed in the mainstream views of ancient history and yet I find that I cannot easily dismiss what the various writers in this book have to say about our ancient history.

In two words this book is quite an `eye-opener'. And these are not the words of some sycophant. I have read and take on board much of what mainstream historians have to say about our ancient past - and yet I feel there are still questions. Over the past two decades I have read various works of the better known alternative historians presented in this book but what I found quite remarkable and somewhat surprising in this anthology is that it is the lesser known contributors here that actually, in my opinion, have contributed the most intriguing and controversial material to this work.

I did not entirely understand the math, but Dr Flavio Barbiero's pole shift article sent shivers down my spine. I would dearly love to see a constructive rebuttal by mainstream science of the theory he presents. Likewise the essay on the Gulf of Khambat by S. Badrinaryan presents highly compelling evidence of an ancient civilization that pre-dates anything mainstream historians seem prepared to acknowledge. The Article by S. Creighton seems to expand Robert Bauval's Orion Theory into a whole new dimension although I think this particular article could have benefited from some diagrams to help better explain the expanded theory.

Was this book worth the dollar? I think if you feel there are questions in our ancient history that are not easily answered or are perhaps poorly answered by the prevailing historical opinion then why not consider alternative views? After all, if mainstream opinion cannot categorically prove, for example, the true age of the Sphinx, and there is potential evidence available that could perhaps prove that the ancient Egyptian civilization is much older than we presently think, then why should we not consider other such opinions? Why should we not look at ALL interpretations of the available evidence? No one has a monopoly on the evidence, or the truth - it is, after all, mere interpretation. And surely there can be more than one interpretation? After all, there is no umpire from ancient times to say this person is right and this person is wrong.

In my opinion, the many ideas expressed in this gem of a book are very refreshing, particularly those essays from the lesser known authors. All the various authors have clearly researched their subject and seem to know it intimately. This anthology, in my considered opinion, is well researched and presents a significant challenge to mainstream scholars regarding certain aspects of our most ancient history. As such, I seriously doubt it will find any favor at all with those of a more mainstream view of our ancient history. But I think even the most hidebound academic must accept that there are gaps in our knowledge of our history, many unanswered questions with regard to our most ancient past. These authors could well be in error in what they are saying but this book is bold enough to attempt to try and address some of those unanswered questions.

Rightly or wrongly, this book cannot be dismissed simply because it challenges orthodox opinion. If it is to be dismissed then it must be done so on the basis of evidence. And from what I have seen here, the evidence presented in many of the articles in this book of an alternative paradigm to our past is highly compelling and cannot be easily dismissed.

An intriguing and fascinating read that is sure to ruffle the feathers of those of a more mainstream view of our most ancient history.

Just my two cents.

I found this collection of essays and articles to be a concise and straight forward exploration of alternative approaches to a variety of disciplines. Though already familiar with some of the names and theories, it served to bring into sharp focus the quintessential position of each author regarding their chosen field of endeavor, as well as revealing their passion for the same. Even if you are familiar with Hancock, Bauval, Collins, Shoch, and others, one gets a real feel for where their coming from that may not be evident in some of their longer and more involved works.

To any one not familiar with the work of the authors presented, this collection also serves as a fine introduction to alternative views to the status quo theories of a wide range of modern sciences. Whether it's the pyramids and their purpose, the effects of cosmic pulses on consciousness, or the flawed history of the first americans, each presentation leaves one with plenty of food for thought as well as intelligently challenging our ideas about what we've come to believe about each. All in all - Well worth your time and money.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 There has to be more to life than what I've been told so far . . . 7 avril 2011

I am part of a team of professional, formally trained people who monitor and analyze equipment, instrumentation, and processes for a business that reports to the state and federal levels - as well as bearing the responsibility of a metropolitan population's health and safety. We assert our pride in attention to detail, following prescribed parameters for conduct and performance; abiding within stringent guidelines - and whenever we step outside the box, there is a secondary box to limit that, too. Putting our reputations on the line on a moment to moment basis; not only do we commit ourselves to the above mentioned duty of character; we also report to each other - around the clock, every day of the year. Although I have accumulated what is referred to as a post-graduate education, among my siblings I am the least educated. One brother is multi-lingual both literally and fluently; the other a highly successful computer programmer analyst. One of my daughters is bilingual and is affiliated with Mensa due to academic achievements. Thanksgiving at my parent's home became something I preferred to avoid for obvious reasons; although in my personal life, I still prefer organized routine and a predictable lifestyle; where fantasy and fiction are secluded to pastime interests only.
In my relentless, thirst driven quest for knowledge, I consider other people's opinions and research as worthy until proven otherwise. One recent example is the book, "Lost Knowledge Of The Ancients," edited by Glenn Kreisberg.
The foremost reason being my work experience has spanned 41 years, encountering many, many different people; as well as in private life becoming acquainted with numerous varieties of "spiritual" people. During my lifetime I have shared conversation with several people who opened up their innermost secrets and experiences regarding beliefs, first-hand eye-witness or directly involved instances of being visited by departed relatives, and speculation upon extra-terrestrial life. Certainly with the information explosion of the Internet and other electronic media, we are becoming more frequently exposed to the possibility of life being composed of more than what our parents and grandparents held. Formal academic training has morphed exponentially just within my own lifetime. Straying a bit from the mainstream of religious denomination propagation of what effect the afterlife should have upon our mortal journey upon this planet; there are greater considerations that nearly all of us are at least curious about.
High School for me was limited when it came to what I was taught regarding the history of mankind in any measure beyond American History as a focus; which is limited to the most recent 500 years or so. It was up to the Sciences to reach back further into time and share antiquated origins for human beings through theory or other analyses. Which by default, nearly 40 years ago, was a small percentage of what is available today as whatever resource is explored. I've always felt that surely somebody with the financial means would strive to reach beyond the status quo and contemporary acceptable limitations of academic institution. Getting an education is only a primary step; it is what we do with our education that matters - and yet even then it is pivotal upon opportunity and resource. We begin to vicariously depend upon the efforts of those a bit more privileged than ourselves to unfurl the mysteries we cannot determine independently.
Unfortunately another part of the information explosion of recent introduction is that there seems to be no lack for contrasting views which challenge not only each other, but the very foundation of what most of us have been taught and believe. Being an author myself, I soon discovered credibility and presentation are elements not to be ignored; and references should be frequently cited; as well as collaboration with established authoritative people who have blazed a few trails before we came along with the ideas we want to share. Skeptics and cynics will bombast anything and everything, and controversial topics are a frivolous pursuit without foundational inclusion of research and experience. Most of us already realize few people succeed at what they strive to notably achieve by contributive performance without outstanding excellence and a lifetime of commitment; as well as having several backers who sincerely WANT you to succeed. Therefore it is rare for open-minded consideration to be exercised upon whatever we try to market, without depth of study before producing or marketing our interest.
"Lost Knowledge Of The Ancients" was written and published by highly learned, seasoned veterans of scientific frontier who are no stranger to being told, "pfffffft" as they share their subject matter. Parapsychology and paranormal phenomena, ancient philosophies, codes and mysteries of ancient beliefs, astronomy and cosmic influences upon mankind down the ages, and archaeology's witness; all seem fragile by interpretation under critical analysis. The whole picture adds up to more than the sum of its parts. We tend to categorize some propagators of free thought as conspiracy theorists, kooks, and on the fringe. Yet the original Seven Wonders of the ancient world still haunt many of us alive today. Some of the stone blocks comprising the Great Pyramids weigh two-hundred-tons apiece. Discoveries on the Earth's moon, Mars, and via the Hubble telescope, suggest influences beyond the comprehension of our grandfather and any ancestor of his. For some of the answers, we turn to biology sciences, geology, and not only the animal kingdom, but botany studies as well. Word of mouth and street credibility doesn't cut it past a short journey toward consideration of whatever connection mankind has with the stars observable in the night sky. Quantum physics and string theory aren't comprehensively beyond scientists and engineers, and expanding our cognitive grasp upon relationships of gravitational forces impacting mankind as not only our earth orbits the sun, we already measure tides and mood swings based upon the orbit of our own moon. Yet today's understanding among the scholarly academic also has come to realize that our sun moves in space in relationship to surrounding stars within the Milky Way, and the Milky Way similarly moves in space in relationship to other solar systems; ultimately played out throughout the universe as the larger picture. In our own lifetime we know by direct experience that these truths give us night and day, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter; and that it takes a year for Earth to orbit the sun. There has to be long term cause and effect for the rest of those details regarding relative experience within the universe as a whole. A hundred years ago we had yet to discover that even solid matter is very much in motion at the sub-atomic level. If you are among those who prescribe against the notion of a "take it or leave it" history of mankind as touted by "experts" and you're not convinced simply by what is popular, then this book is worth your investment. A game of billiards isn't exhaustively predictable in outcome; and unless you've played a few games, talking about it isn't convincing to your audience. The author of this book being reviewed has been around the world, in more direct contact with his subject matter than most of us can hope for in two lifetimes. I recommend this book.

I must agree with those that have stated the title does not deliver the content. It is more a promotion of the different authors' books.With some good exceptions, there are to many broad and general statements, not a detailed analysis.If you are looking for a general overview to decide what other books to read, then this book is for you. However, if you already know something about the subject and are looking for detailed/speficic information get another book.
