Ancient Egypt monuments are too precious to be left in the hands of the so-called Egyptian archeologists. They do not understand science.

The little portion of Gobekli Tepe so far excavated corresponds to the detailed portion of the map, bottom right, which includes the main circular enclosures A to D. As you can see, even Enclosure D, the oldest and largest enclosure yet uncovered, corresponding to the uppermost green circle is small relative to some of the remaining structures.
The structure right in the middle of the plot looks especially interesting – being nearly twice the diameter of enclosure D. Considering the progression of these structures – they seem to get larger as they get older – perhaps this central enclosure is the ‘heart’ of Gobekli Tepe, and will reveal a great deal more about its function and purpose.
But some of the other structures remaining in the ground also look to be massive. Quite possibly, we have only scratched the surface of Gobekli Tepe so far, and the main event remains to be excavated.

Stone circles conjure up a lost world of mysterious ceremonies, druid astronomers, pagan dances and inquisitive antiquarians. The most famous is Stonehenge in Wiltshire, UK, but it is also the most unusual in that it has lintels and trilithons in its design.
Most stone circles are not so glamorous, but given that over one thousand of them dated to between 3500 BC and 1500 BC have been found in the British Isles alone, their construction was evidently an important part of our ancient culture.
Stonehenge is also known for its summer solstice sunrise, and research over the last 60 years has shown that many other circles not only use sky and landscape alignments to mark astronomical events, but also share geometrical forms and measurement systems.
Whoever made these magnificent structures had a deep understanding of engineering, surveying, geometry, metrology, acoustics and astronomy. And they were not an isolated group of builders — as we will see, stone circle building was once a global endeavour.
Gobekli Tepe: Stone Circle Genesis
6,500 years before Stonehenge was constructed, a vast megalithic complex was flourishing near present day Şanliurfa, southeast Turkey. Göbekli Tepe is at least 12,000 years old and its preserved stone circles are the oldest in the world. The ones so far uncovered exhibit impressive degrees of technical and artistic skill.
Like Stonehenge, the monoliths were erected in circular arrangements, and oriented to particular areas of the sky. The world’s first stone circle complex is rewriting history books.
Göbekli Tepe consists of T-shaped pillars up to 20 ft. tall, many decorated with animal reliefs (scorpions, boars, lions, etc) and abstract human forms wearing belts inscribed with enigmatic ‘H’ and ‘U’ shapes.
The taller stones rest in shallow nests on bedrock with small supportive dry-stone walls built in between them. In some enclosures, two central pillars orient towards a holed stone, the largest and oldest of which is 65ft wide.
An enormous 24 ft.-long limestone pillar still sits in the nearby quarry. Over some 3,000 years the circles were filled in with rubble to create mounds, and other circular and oval enclosures built on top. Then, at around 8000 BC, the entire complex was carefully reconstructed and covered up. Interestingly, the oldest rings are not only the largest, but also the most sophisticated.
Like later sites around the world, astronomical alignments are evident. Figures depicted on the Vulture Stone may be the earliest representations of zodiacal and other constellations (including Cygnus). Our earliest surviving buildings therefore seem to be an early observatory built to track precession, the 25,800-year cycle of the pole stars.
Acoustics and Ellipses
It has been noted that the enclosures at Göbekli Tepe are roughly 4 to 3 ratio ellipses. Early stone ellipses seem to have been constructed using Pythagorean triangles and at least 30 examples have been recorded in Britain including Forvie Sands in Aberdeenshire, Postbridge in Devon, and Daviot in the Highlands of Scotland.
The great megalithic ring and mound of Msoura in Morocco is also an ellipse that we will discuss shortly. The 4/3 ratio is the harmonic fourth, one of the great harmonies of acoustics. In his book The Cygnus Key, Andrew Collins suggests the enclosures were designed with this in mind. I
British Stone Circle in Morocco
In Morocco, a remote ring called Msoura sits near Asilah near the northwest coast. Located about 18 miles from the Phoneician ruins of Lixus, it is a huge ellipse of 168 surviving stones of an original 175, the tallest of which is 17ft (5m). Its major axis is 195ft (59.29m) wide by 185ft (56.18m).
A massive, part-excavated tumulus was a later addition that sits in its centre. It encodes similar geometry and metrology to many British stone circles.
“Msoura, incredibly, appears to have been constructed either by the same culture that erected the megalithic sites in France, Britain and Ireland or by one that was intimately connected with them.” II
Unusual cup-marks on the bedrock and on top of some of the oldest pillars at Göbekli Tepe prefigure British cup-marks by thousands of years. This is a tradition that is found throughout the Fertile Crescent, all over the British Isles and in Atlantic Europe.
I recently investigated two American examples, both of which are petroglyph sites in Nevada; the 7,000 BC Grimes Point site and the 12,800 BC Winnemucca site. These are called cupules, which are concave depressions in the rock. Their presence at Göbekli Tepe has triggered many questions, not only as to what their purpose was, but how they relate to those found all over the world.
In 1970, Alexander Thom suggested in a BBC documentary, ‘Cracking the Stone Age Code’:
“…that the cup and ring markings were a method of recording, of writing, and that they may indicate, once we can read them, what a particular stone was for. We have seen the cup and ring markings on the stone at Temple Wood, and that’s on the main stone but we can’t interpret them … yet.” III
He created diagrams and carried out an analysis of over 50 of the cup and ring markings from which he determined a length he termed the Megalithic Inch (MI). IV
David Cowan, author of Ancient Energies of the Earth, believes they were created to manipulate natural telluric currents, to enhance fertility and link one cup-mark site up with another. V
Whatever their purpose, the cup and ring markings are one of the many mysteries of stone circles.
Stone Circles of the Bible
The submerged site of Atlit Yam near Haifa in Israel dates to between 6900 and 6300 BC and is the earliest known evidence for an agro-pastoral-marine subsistence system on the Levantine coast. A stone semicircle containing seven half-ton monoliths was discovered at 8m-12m deep.
The stones have cup marks carved into them and surround a freshwater spring. There is even a potential orientation to the Summer Solstice, and possible alignments to other stars, but these are yet to be fully researched due to their location underwater.
Further inland, dating to between 3000 and 4000 BC, is Rujm el-Hiri – (also known as Gilgal Refaim) – a huge series of concentric circles in the Golan Heights of Israel. It again has an opening in the outer circle that aligns to the Summer Solstice, as well as a burial chamber in the centre with many dolmens in the immediate area.
Once again, the tradition of cup-marks is present at the site. The cup-mark phenomenon continues throughout Europe, some famous examples of which are at Clava Cairns, a bronze-age site in Southern Scotland.
In the Hebrew Bible, there are 39 mentions of Gilgal, a ‘circle of standing stones’. In one account, having miraculously crossed the river Jordan, Joshua orders the Israelites to take twelve large stones from the river bed, one for each tribe, and place them at Gilgal ‘in memory’. Gilgal has been identified with the village of Jiljilia, about 8m north of Bethel.
Armenia is the unlikely location of one of the oldest and most impressive circles. Called Zorats Karer or Karenish by local people, and widely known as Armenia’s Stonehenge, Karahunge has 223 standing stones that vary between 2ft and 9ft tall and weigh up to 10 tons.
Although no cup-marks have been found, eighty stones have circular holes drilled through them, 37 of which are still standing. Its name translates as ‘speaking stones’ and researchers have noted that the holes create sound when the wind is strong. 17 of the stones align to sunrise or sunset at the solstices and equinoxes, and 14 to lunar extremes.
Russian prehistorian Professor Paris Herouni, using telescopic methods and the rules of precession, analysed a prominent holed stone oriented north that aligns with Deneb, the brightest star of Cygnus, in c. 5,500 BC.
Early Circles in Portugal
Near Evora is the 8,000-year-old Cromeleque dos Almendres with its rounded granite stones and nearby dolmens. From this 92-stone circle the midwinter sun rises above the 8ft Menhir do Almendres, 1km to the southeast. Again, some of the stones have cup-marks on them.
The site was built in several phases beginning in c. 6000 BC and continuing up to c. 4000 BC.
South American Circles
The ‘Stonehenge of the Amazon’ is located on a hilltop near Calçoene, Amapa, Brazil. Here, 127 blocks of granite, up to 11 ft tall, are spaced at regular intervals around the hill, like a crown. The 100 ft circle is thought to have been constructed by the Amapán people between the 1st and 10th century AD. It has a winter solstice sunrise alignment.
Sillustani, near Lake Titicaca in Peru, is well known for its huge hilltop funerary towers called ‘Chulpas’. On the plains below are several astronomically-aligned stone circles built by the Kolla (a pre-Inca culture) between 100 AD and 1600 AD.
The largest, at 34 ft, is Intiwatana which translates as “to moor the sun”, and traditions in the area say that these were astronomical circles. Once again, cup-marks have been found here, as well as spiral patterns in the rocks.
However, the huge cupules seem to be mortice and tenon joints that linked the stones together, although ‘bosses’ or ‘protrusions’ are a tradition that is found all over Peru, including at Machu Picchu and Cusco. In fact, cultures such as the ancient Egyptians also had ‘protrusions’ like this on some of their megalithic structures and pyramids.
Return to Stonehenge
Further anomalies connect ancient Peruvian sites with Stonehenge. Two monoliths–one of the massive upright sarsens in the main Stonehenge circle and another fallen one–fashion a particular type of ‘scoop’ mark, as though the stone has been softened and an ice cream scoop has taken some of the stone away.

Block from Ollantaytambo with similar ‘scoop’ marks
Finally, on the eastern face of the same upright sarsen, a ‘protrusion’ that is badly weathered is of a similar style to those of South America! Coincidence? Possibly. But it would not surprise me if we are looking at ancient cultures that were connected at some point in prehistory.
Coming Full Circle
It goes without saying that these direct similarities between ancient stone circle sites are worthy of further investigation. With so few of them left to study and so few written records of them, it is only the big unmovable stones and the way they have been placed in relation to their respective landscapes that could hold the key to understanding our prehistoric ancestors.
The power of the ancients has come full circle. The prehistoric stone circles represent a golden age of astronomy, mystery and technological prowess, and with the current wave of Megalithomania sweeping the planet, no doubt more will be built, leaving archaeologists and antiquarians of the future as baffled as we are now!

Joe Rogan and Robert Schoch talk about how our current view on how, why and when The Sphinx was constructed could be wrong.
The model used for dating the origin of human civilization is bound to the presupposition that human history has progressed in a linear fashion from the time of tribal hunter-gatherers. As established institutions hold firm to this view, evidence contradicting the accepted model continues to grow. This data is difficult to collect and is immediately discredited by the “credible” scientific community.
In this inaugural episode, Graham Hancock discloses his evidence that suggests cataclysmic events brought a dramatic end to an advanced human civilization which predates recorded history by thousands of years in this presentation originally webcast February 9, 2015.
Graham Hancock is the author of the international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods and Heaven’s Mirror. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances have put his ideas before audiences of millions. He is recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity’s past. Although best known for his non-fiction writings his most recent books are novels: Entangled: The Eater of Souls, War God: Nights of the Witch and War God: Return of the Plumed Serpent.
Most of the one million visitors who visit Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain every year believe they are looking at untouched 4,000-year-old remains. But virtually every stone was re-erected, straightened or embedded in concrete between 1901 and 1964, says a British doctoral student.
“What we have been looking at is a 20th-century landscape, reminiscent of what Stonehenge might have looked like thousands of years ago,” says Brian Edwards, a student at the University of the West of England in Bristol.
Stonehenge isn’t the only ancient site to have been transformed in recent years, he says. “Even many of the local people in Avebury weren’t aware that a lot of the stones were put up in the 1930s,” he told New Scientist.
The major reconstructions that took place at Stonehenge and Avebury early last century couldn’t be repeated at a major site today, thinks Edwards. “But it probably is happening in small museums and heritage centres up and down the country,” he says.
English Heritage says it is now considering covering the Stonehenge alteration programme in detail in the next edition of its official guidebook to the site. A decision not to include the work in official guides was taken in the 1960s, says Dave Batchelor, English Heritage’s senior archaeologist.
The first restoration project took place in 1901. A leaning stone was straightened and set in concrete, to prevent it falling.
More drastic renovations were carried out in the 1920s. Under the direction of Colonel William Hawley, a member of the Stonehenge Society, six stones were moved and re-erected.

I’ve long been fascinated by Egypt as a possible connection to ancient wisdom and have written about how I see its art as a portal to a connection to consciousness.
Researchers like Graham Hancock have influenced by sense of these connections and point to the possibility of a source “super” civilization that may have had some of its knowledge recorded metaphorically or artistically in places like Central America, Mexico, Peru, India, China, as well as in Egypt.
Graham asserts that “stuff keeps getting older” and makes a strong case for a cataclysmic event that wiped out such a civilization with a comet impact about 12,000 years ago, approximately the time Plato attributed to the decline of Atlantis, which may be much more than a mere myth.
These theories are beautifully and graphically explored in the web series Magical Egypt.
The latest segment proposes that the two “polarities” of Consciousness seem to arise from (or reference) the two hemispheres of the brain.
These are the “dualities” of energetic complementarians — Yin/ Yang, Plus/ Minus, Male/ Female, Hot/ Cold, Night/ Day, Sun/ Moon and so on.
Written In Stone: Decoding The Secret Masonic Religion Hidden In Gothic Cathedrals And World Architecture gives the best account available in print about how religion began and how struggles over the meaning of spirituality shaped the world we live in today.
What struck me deeply — besides the wonderful comparisons of ancient structures from all of these locales and their overlapping, identical motifs, was his focus on the “Godself image.”
This ubiquitous image displays the complementary forces in either hand of a deity, mythical creature, or actual spirit animal with emphasis on the head or disc at the top of the torso.
According to Cassaro this disc is a Third Force — a reconciling or “vertical” dimension that rules over the conflicting forces and presumably “intelligently” creates the result for the potentiality of energies within the expression of THE PRESENT MOMENT.
Cassaro asserts that like modern thinkers such as Eckhart Tolle, ancients believed that time and space are mental projections affected by the sensory limitations of sentient creatures.
The sole connection to a higher dimension that affects us sporadically according to our consciousness and level of being is literally “time-less” — and is experienced only in our lifetimes within moments of complete clarity.
These beliefs can be traced back to Gnosticism and the actual parables of Jesus and again, a “lost Christian” tradition that sought transcendence of the mental realms to connect with a reality beyond thought.
Gurdjieff and his student Ouspensky, author of the classic In Search of the Miraculous, brought a teaching that he hinted came from “Pre-Sand” Egypt — a time which geologists like Robert Schoch have recently identified as more temperate and accounting for the striations at the bases of the Sphinx that were caused by water erosion (hard to imagine in today’s Sahara but possible before the great flood or other cataclysm that might have wiped out a “super civilization” or source culture).
Gurdjieff also asserted a sacred Law of the Threes — three basic forces of Nature that shape our reality — the forces were also:
Affirming – Denying – Reconciling
Gurdjieff had a prayer for these “holy” forces in his own work, Beelzebub’s Tales for his Grandson.
Transsubstantiate within me for my being.”
In the summary of Gurdjieff’s work linked above, philosopher Jacob Needleman also describes, “the idea of the three centers in man is one of the most central ideas in the whole of the Gurdjieffian system.
Man’s confusion, his lack of unity, his unnecessary suffering, his immorality — in fact everything that characterizes the sorrow of the human condition — come about because these centers of perception are wrongly related, wrongly functioning, and because man does not see or care to know this about himself.”
These three centers relate to the three forces obviously, but again what is striking is that the reconciling force does not “act” in the present moment, but actually, somehow, beyond our normal comprehension literally IS the present moment.
This interpretation seems to be shared by the Gurdjieff teaching, Cassaro’s interpretation of the GodSelf imagery, and the artistic deconstruction done by the producers and other contributors to the Magical Egypt series — which is a study of an ancient science of Consciousness.
It is also known that before bringing his teaching back to Russia, Gurdjieff spent many years in Egypt working as a tour guide at Giza and apparently studying the ancient monuments and texts.
I believe that this also relates to some of my own work because I am so interested in the confluence of DNA code and computer software.
As I have noted here and in my recent book, the notion that there can be code, that can be edited, without Mind as its progenitor is contrary to all actual experience and empirical evidence.
Every other program that we know of is mind-based, as are we.
The key point here is that Mind is not “resident” only in the human brain. It may well be a natural force of nature and indeed the Reconciling or Third force known to the ancients.
Just as some cultures have numerous words for “love” or even “snow” depending upon their beliefs and connection to physical reality, so too may we need to broaden our concept of Mind to accommodate different “frequencies” — some of which may occur in nature beyond our current level of understanding.
For example, the Egyptian “deities” which we consider primitive were actual representatives of the various “intelligences” of Nature worshiped by Egyptians as part of Maat — the Natural Order — such as the floods that irrigated crops, wind, sandstorms, Sun and Moon and their radiant energy, and so on.
I also cover this in my book, If DNA Is Software, Who Wrote the Code?, which is now available on Amazon.
A flood myth or deluge myth is a narrative in which a great flood, usually sent by a deity or deities, destroys civilization, often in an act of divine retribution. Parallels are often drawn between the flood waters of these myths and the primeval waters found in certain creation myths, as the flood waters are described as a measure for the cleansing of humanity, in preparation for rebirth. Most flood myths also contain a culture hero, who “represents the human craving for life”.
The flood myth motif is widespread among many cultures as seen in the Mesopotamian flood stories, the Hindu texts from India, Deucalion in Greek mythology, the Genesis flood narrative, Bergelmir in Norse Mythology, and in the lore of the K’iche’ and Maya peoples in Mesoamerica, the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa tribe of Native Americans in North America, the Muisca people, and Cañari Confederation, in South America.
The oldest Inca structure seems to be built the finest

CUSCO, Peru (INTELLIHUB) — To this day it is a mystery how the Inca built Coricancha so precisely.
In fact, the structures stones fit so perfectly that no mortar was needed in the construction.
How were the angles so precisely calculated and created?
“[Coricancha] is one of the technical marvels of the ancient world because of the exactness of the craftsmanship,” archeologist Brian Forester said.
Moreover, there a holes in various blocks which also bear score marks as if machinery was used during the construction process.
One of the archeologists concludes the hole appears to be a “core drill” which may signify the use of advanced machinery.

Was North America once inhabited by a race of giants? According to an old legend supported by several challenging archaeological finds, it is possible.
Many Native American tribes tell stories about the long-forgotten existence of a race of humans that were much taller and stronger than ordinary men.
These giants are described as both brave and barbaric and legends often mention their cruelty towards whomever they pleased.
The Paiute, a tribe that settled in the Nevada region thousands of years ago, have an outstanding legend about a race of red-haired giants called the Si-Te-Cah.
The ancestors of the Paiute described them as savage and inhospitable cannibals.
In the Northern Paiute language, ‘Si-Te-Cah’ literally means ‘tule-eaters.’
Legend has it that the giants came from a distant island by crossing the ocean on rafts built using the fibrous tule plant.
As odd as it may sound, this legend repeats itself all over the Americas, suggesting it might be an incomplete chronicle of a real event that happened long ago.
In Crónicas del Perú, sixteenth century Spanish conquistador Pedro Cieza de León recorded an ancient Peruvian tale about the origin of the South American giants.
According to legend, they “came by sea in rafts of reeds after the manner of large boats; some of the men were so tall that from the knee down they were as big as the length of an ordinary fair-sized man.”
Could the giants of Peru and the Si-Te-Cah have been survivors of a massive cataclysm who took refuge on the American continent?
Legend tells that the Si-Te-Cah waged war on the Paiute and all other neighboring tribes, spreading terror and devastation. Finally, after years of conflict, the tribes united against the common enemy and began to decimate them.
The last remaining red-haired giants were chased off and sought shelter inside a cave. The tribes started a fire at the cave entrance, suffocating and burning alive the Si-Te-Cah. Those driven out by the smoke were also killed.
The tribes then sealed off the mouth of the cave so that no one might set eyes on those who had once plagued their land. They were all but forgotten until a random event brought them back to light.
In 1886, a mining engineer named John T. Reid happened to hear the legend from a group of Paiutes while prospecting near Lovelock, Nevada.
The Indians told him that the legend was real and the cave was located nearby. When he saw the cave for himself, Reid knew he was onto something.
Reid was unable to begin digging himself but news spread and soon, Lovelock cave was attracting attention.
Unfortunately, the attention was profit-driven as guano deposits were discovered inside.
A company started by miners David Pugh and James Hart began excavating the precious resource in 1911 and had soon shipped more than 250 tons to a fertilizer company in San Francisco.
Any artifacts that might have been discovered were probably neglected or lost.
After the surface layer of guano had been mined, strange objects started to surface.
This led to an official excavation being performed in 1912 by the University of California and another one took place in 1924. Reports told about thousands of artifacts being recovered, some of them being truly unusual.
Although their claims have not been verified (it comes as no surprise), sources said the mummified remains of several red-haired ancient giants were found buried in the cave.
Measuring between 8 to 10 feet in height, these mummies have since been referred to as the Lovelock Giants.
Another intriguing find was a pair of 15 inch-long sandals that showed signs of having been worn. Allegedly, other unusually large items were recovered but have since been locked away in museum warehouses and private collection.
A piece of evidence that remains on-site until this day is a giant hand print, embedded on a boulder inside Lovelock Cave. We won’t go into further debate pertaining to this aspect and its implications.
Needless to say, this discovery has led many into believing the Paiute legend of the Si-Te-Cah might be more than just folklore.
Around the same time as the second Lovelock Cave excavation, another dig revealed a set of equally-disturbing finds.
According to a 1931 article published in the Nevada Review-Miner, two giant skeletons had been found buried in a dry lake bed close to Lovelock, Nevada.
The over-sized remains measured 8.5, respectively 10 feet in height and were mummified in a manner similar to the one employed by ancient Egyptians.
Another common trait between these mummified giant remains and the ones discovered as far south as Lake Titicaca is the presence of red hair.
While some scientists believe the reddish color is a result of the interaction with the environment in which they were buried, the mummies verify the legends, which described the Si-Te-Cah and their kin as red-haired giants.
Proponents of alternative history believe these violent giants were none other than the biblical Nephilim, the forsworn offspring of the ‘Sons of God’ with the ‘daughters of men.’
If this is true, there’s little chance we might get to see any of the giant mummies. Those interested in keeping history secret will never disclose their location.
I’ll say this off the top, I believe we don’t know our true history, not even close. What we’re going to explore in this article are mathematical mysteries about the Great Pyramid will challenge your perception of what we know of our past.
It’s not just the incredible research about our past from people like Robert Bauval, Graham Hancock, Nassim Heramein, and Brian Forester, that illustrate how different our true history really is from what we are taught in the mainstream, it’s the very mysteries that get anyone asking ‘who did that?’ and ‘how did they do that?’ even after so many years of apparently having the answers.
When I was a kid I was always fascinated by the Egyptian pyramids. At that stage, I wasn’t even aware of the many other types of pyramids that exist on this planet, their significance, or incredible history. All I knew of were the huge yellowish orange triangular pyramids that gave me a sense of wonder and amazement about our past.
I recall watching shows on TV, the TLC channel to be exact, talking about the mysteries of the ancient pyramids, how people thought they were built and even when they are dated. Regardless of the modern Egyptologist view, I always felt there was ‘other worldly’ play involved. While at the time to me that meant aliens, now I understand it could simply mean that what we think is other worldly now, may actually be of our world, but from our past. More specifically, that what we might call aliens now, actually existed here on earth en mass many years ago.
Currently, Egyptologists most commonly accept that the pyramids were constructed by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place. There have been a number of people who illustrated how this could have been done, but many don’t believe it was that simple. Not only that, they believe that given the complexity of various factors involved with the incredibly precise placement of the pyramids, more information must have been known about earth that historians state people did not know at the time.
Here are a few mind boggling facts about the dimensions of the Great Pyramid in relationship to the earth.
If you take the height of the pyramid and multiply it by 43,200 you get the polar radius of earth. If you take the base perimeter of the pyramid and multiply it by 43,200 you get the equatorial circumference of the earth. As Graham states in the video below, for thousands of years, through dark ages and even during a time when humans didn’t even know we lived on a planet, somehow that monument was built and encoded with the exact dimensions of the earth at a scale of 1 :43,200. And this number of 43,200 is not random either, it is derived from a key motion of the earth called the precession of the earth’s axis.
Where did this knowledge come from? Perhaps lost civilizations in the human story? Perhaps extraterrestrials?
There will be a quiz!
17 Aug 2017
Graham Hancock reviews the evidence and the arguments, the new archaeology and the intriguing genetic clues, to bring us closer to the truth of what really happened during this astonishing lost period in history. Hancock suggests the survivors of earth’s lost civilization, left us unmistakable clues in the form of advanced technology and ancient ruins.
Graham looks at the clues scattered around the world in ancient myths, maps and monuments and in deliberately buried time-capsules, such as mysterious 12,000-year-old sites like Gunung Padang in Indonesia and Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, these clues appear to have been designed to reawaken humanity at a time when an advanced global civilization had once again emerged. Hancock concludes his lecture with evidence that a planetary awakening is underway, the birth of a new – or perhaps very old and long-lost – form of human consciousness.

First we were told that the first human civilisations were Mesopotamia and Egypt, ca. 3000BCE. Then we found out about Göbekli Tepe, stretching the timeline back to 10,000BCE.
And now, a new paper in Nature suggests that humans have been coming together in large numbers for a lot longer – but not in the now-arid regions of the Middle East.
Instead, say researchers, “archaeological evidence now demonstrates that humans settled tropical forest regions “on previously unimagined scales”, and have actively manipulated these ecologies for “at least 45,000 years” – and perhaps much longer:
In the last ten years, the archaeologically acknowledged human inhabitation of tropical forests has quadrupled in age.
There is now clear evidence for the use of tropical forests by our species in Borneo and Melanesia by c.45 ka, in South Asia by c.36ka, and in South America by c.13ka.
There are suggestions of earlier rainforest occupation c.125ka in Java, c.60ka in the Philippines, c.100ka in China, and in Africa, perhaps from the first appearance of Homo sapiens, c.200ka, though further research is required to verify these cases.
Why has it taken this long for us to notice these much older settlements? Firstly, assumptions about the inhospitability of tropical forests – you might say we couldn’t see the settlements for the trees.
Just three or four decades ago, the researchers point out, the learned opinion of anthropologists was that tropical forests were unattractive environments for human occupation.
Archaeologists backed the anthropologists up, noting that tropical forests were incapable of supporting agricultural populations.
And a key factor, especially in terms of archaeological interest, is the generally poor preservation of organic archaeological remains in tropical forest environments – old stuff doesn’t last in the tropics.
However, “over the last two decades, archaeological data, including canopy-penetrating LiDAR (light detection and ranging) mapping, have revealed previously unimagined scales of human settlement in the Americas and Southeast Asia,” say researchers.
The fact that humans have co-existed with – and manipulated – forest environents for tens of thousands of years offers some lessons, the authors of the paper note.
Firstly, it is problematic for any environmental policy simply aimed at returning areas to their ‘original’ forest conditions.
“If past human populations have in many cases altered tropical forests in ways that have rendered them more useable for human inhabitation,” they point out, “then perhaps restoration is a problematic goal, at least if such practices are aimed at restoring to some ‘original’ condition.”
And furthermore, they say, these new findings suggest that we should study the ways of these ‘primitive’ people, as they seemed to learn very early on how to live in forest regions in large numbers, in a sustainable manner:
“Indigenous and traditional peoples — whose ancestors’ systems of production and knowledge are slowly being decoded by archaeologists — should be seen as part of the solution and not one of the problems of sustainable tropical forest development.”

His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series, Quest For The Lost Civilization and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age, as well as his censored TEDx talk The War on Consciousness and his strong presence on the internet, have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises resonant questions about humanity’s past and about our present predicament. Hancock’s new book, the sequel to Fingerprints of the Gods, is Magicians of the Gods, but he is perhaps best-known amongst the plant medicine community for his 2005 book Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind.
