Category: archaeology

One of the many projects occupying my time these days (and most of my life) – Where did civilization truly originate, and what is our full story? Since I was 11 years old, I never found the “Sumerian first” concept made any sense if you understand global archaeology, mythology, or archaeoastronomy at a functional level. I’m using this post as a placeholder for curious readers who might refer back over the coming months for more updates on this ongoing quest for knowledge.

I’m currently working on composing my research on this topic, and have made the decision to start releasing unfinished notes in order to get at least some amount of content out for presentation. I hope readers will forgive the incomplete state of the work and know that I have hundreds of pages of written material that will be forthcoming as soon as I’m able to stop my research long enough to compose it all into deliverable format. I have learned to embrace my mental nature which allows me to spend countless hours writing, researching, and discussing a wide variety of subject matter, but sharing my time across multiple subjects and works does mean that I can’t publish any one work as quickly as I’d like. I will do my best to spend a few minutes each day to release small bits of my work for my friends to enjoy, and I expect at least 1 or 2 of my books will be complete in the next 12 months, as well as a few substantial research papers.

So stay tuned ūüôā

Regarding my OHC Project, here are the high points at present:

While I’ll do my best to drop references into my notes as I publish them here, it just takes too much time to go hunt down things I read years ago, obscure books I may not have in front of me as I’m typing, etc. So please feel free to double check my work on your own and I’ll try to provide bread crumbs to follow at the very least. If I’m speculating, I’ll tell you. If I feel strongly about something, I’ll tell you why. There’s no agenda here but discovery and exploration of Truth, and that’s all readers will get from me. My best attempt at Truth, working with the evidence I have.

It’s my view that in the absence of established truth, speculating about possibilities is totally fine, as long as this speculation doesn’t hinder my ability to conduct objective research and form objective opinions. I call these speculations “placeholders”. If I believe a giant flying spaghetti monster raised Africa out of the sea a billion years ago, and it gives me some framework to form working hypotheses, that’s great. I don’t believe speculating hurts anything, as long as you admit it as such and don’t let it mislead you or impart your judgement when considering new information. Therefore, I rank my points and views on a numerical scale, based on how certain I am of a given view, or how well-evidenced I feel it is. That way, detractors can say what they will about some of the ideas I put forth, but no one can ever say I wasn’t open about the strength of my claims. Some will be very strong and some won’t – and I’m absolutely fine with that, as I feel any open-minded researcher should be.

For example, a “V3 theory” (by my own “validity scale”) should have 3 correlating disciplines supporting the proposition. Within each discipline should be multiple sound data points in the affirmative. See below:

Theory: There is a connection between peoples of the South Pacific and the American Southwest. Specifically, I believe they are connected in that they have come from a common ancestor civilization thousands of years ago that was wiped out in some sort of disaster – most likely a flood of some sort, possibly caused by a volcanic eruption, earthquake, comet impact, or combination thereof.

Exhibit 1: Linguistics –¬†There are at least a dozen words I’ve found in the languages of indigenous peoples from the American southwest that are shared with Hawaiian, Samoan, Polynesian, Maori, and other cultures of the western Pacific, including the Japanese. (There may be more, but the similarities in pronunciation and meanings of so many words I had translated were convincing enough that I didn’t feel further examination was necessary at this point. Translating takes time I could better spend on other work, and the point is to establish enough of a platform to continue a line of research. If I come up empty-handed at the next level of research, the data or conclusions that got me to that point was probably bad, and in this way, again, speculation proves not to be the devil, but a valuable scientific tool.¬†Regarding the validity of these data points, I feel I should be clear about something here, which applies to all my research: Just one or two words in common would hardly catch my attention, although I would store that as a level 1 data point in the back of my mind, in case I came across more later.)

Exhibit 2: MythologyThe aforementioned indigenous American tribes almost all share mythologies of their ancestors coming from the west, across the Pacific Ocean, following a great deluge (flood).

Exhibit 3: Culture/Traditions ¬†Pending – While I’m fairly well-versed on the cultures of most native American peoples, I’m not so knowledgable on cultures of the South Pacific. I’m working with some friends who have more knowledge on this and will have an update soon.

Exhibit 4: Archaeology I’ve personally visited several archaeological sites around the American Southwest and have observed symbols in petroglyphs and cave art that are identical to those of other sites of deep antiquity around the world. There are too many to list here, but eventually I’ll have pictures up with explanations. It’s also worth mentioning, though not game-changing, that massive pyramids and other megalithic architecture are being found around the south Pacific, predating those of the Mayans to the east across the Pacific. The similarities between these structures are many, and I think at least make them worthy of consideration as evidence of a human connection between the hemispheres.


SERVICE INTERRUPTION: Going to publish this and run to lunch. Will resume this afternoon.


Current Research:

  1. Looking into the Nordic dispersement idea outlined by the Bock Saga and more or less endorsed by Thor Heyerdahl and others. This is a side item for me at present, but I’m very interested in the Bock Saga, mainly due to the usage of linguistic sound systems to pass on information. The Saga also demonstrates an intriguing use of linguistic morphology that I think warrants investigation. Unfortunately, it’s virtually impossible to get much info on it outside Jim Chesnar’s youtube videos.
  2. Consuming every Manly P. Hall book and lecture I can get my hands on to better understand ancient wisdom traditions and ties to modern science and architecture. Cross-referencing everything I find with 25+ years of my own independent research in the field and finding astounding parallels.
  3. Reading every translation I can find of the Emerald Tablets of Thoth, which have been very impressive to say the least.
  4. Linguistic similarities between different, supposedly unrelated cultures. Specifically Egypt and Native Americans. (Thoth pronounced “Tay-ho-tay” or “Tee-hu-tee” I believe is connected with Teotehuacan, the city of Quetzlcoatl, the Mayan god that is almost indisputably the same entity as Egyptian Thoth. Using imagery and linguistic morphology, this seems plainly obvious to me). Also the native word “peyote”, the plant of wisdom, which again sounds almost identical to “tay-ho-tay”, the egyptian god of wisdom. This kind of thing is fascinating to me and I have several pages of such linguistic ties.

I think the issue here is 2-fold.

  1. Lack of Context: Shermer has no context for Graham's work, and doesn't take him seriously until very late in the dialogue. This is why he just blindly argues, even when he doesn't know what he's talking about. He seemed to develop a sense of respect by the end of the show, but having no context coming in allows him to just label and dismiss Graham and Randall as more "ancient aliens" quacks. Furthermore, Graham's use of the word "advanced" when referring to this lost civilization is difficult to understand for a person who hasn't read his other work.
  2. Lack of Basic Understanding: Shermer compares the effort involved in painting Chauvet Cave with the construction of the Great Pyramid. To me, this immediately makes debating him on this issue the equivalent of Richard Dawkins debating a Creationist. If you believe something so far out from reality and so devoid of relevant understanding, it's going to be virtually impossible to have a productive debate.

The difference in the two views is extremely difficult to articulate without a lot of context, but here's thing bottom line as I see it.

  1. Graham likely believes this lost civilization had technology and understanding of the universe, energy, spirituality, and consciousness, that was lost with their destruction (or shortly after) - meaning that WE don't know what they knew! This is abundantly evident by ancient writings from cultures around the world, as well as surviving stone monuments, with their astronomical alignments, advanced and mysterious construction techniques, and mathematically-coded site-layouts.
  2. Shermer seems to feel that there is an acceptable and gradual developmental incline in human civilization from Chauvet Cave to the Great Pyramid, with Gobekli Type being well inline with this evolutionary path. He would probably laugh at the idea that these lost people had access to knowledge or technology we don't today, as he has not explored Graham's other work on the subject.

In my view, this is a simple issue:

Prove Comet Impact > Validate Ancient Myths > Confirm Existence of Lost Civilization of Seafaring Wisemen

Once the Comet Impact Hypothesis is proven in the next 5 years or so, ancient flood myths from around the world will be (at least in part) validated. Once you accept the validity of these myths (even in part), you must acknowledge the near-certainty that certain common threads in the various myths must be rooted in reality. Since the most common thread between all these myths is the story of Mystics or Wise Men sailing around the world in ships, enlightening and educating more primitive peoples, the claims made for this must be recognized as probable.

Basic inductive reasoning here, but I see no problem with the logic. It seems at this point, the mainstream view is hanging by a thread - and one major breakthrough for the Comet theorists is all it will take to cut it down. What an exciting time we live in.

Now, why does it matter?

If Graham's camp is right, this means a great deal to us. It means that this lost civilization was probably living a far healthier, happier, more scientific and spiritual way of life than our own. They didn't need plastic or cell phones. They reportedly had glass that could bend and could move megaton blocks using levitation (something science can now do on very small scales). They may have even mastered alchemical transfiguration of certain stone types, explaining the mysterious architecture of Puma Punku and other sites.

In short, if such a civilization existed, we should all be interested and dedicated to exploring its mysteries and the lessons they hold for our society. Not only could our own society potentially change for the better in ways we can't imagine, but we may also find that there are dangers the ancients knew of that we don't. Like the one that wiped them out.

I'm with Graham in the belief that the evidence is clear. They were here, they held secrets we can't imagine, and they tried to pass down at least some of those secrets in myth, monuments, and maps. And I think that within their coded messages may lie warnings for future generations - look to the sky, disaster comes from above.

----- That all being said, watching this podcast is like watching an intense MMA fight. I had goosebumps for the better part of 3 hours.
