Shamanic Sound and Breath Journey

I had previously attended an event put on by Kai and Serah… so I kind of knew what to expect. But I had no idea what type of experience I would have this time around. The previous one was a gathering of a couple hundred of us all lying down in a large circular room with an array of ancient instruments pumped through a massive sound system. There were incense burning, crystals and other new agey type stuff. I’m ok with that. Guys were walking around with Didgeridoos throwing sound through the air at you. Chimes and beautiful vocals rang throughout.

I love audio as it is, so this was amazing to me. It really affected my physically… at one point my body was vibrating. It started with a small shiver and built up to a full vibration and it felt like every cell in my body was alive and vibrating. It was like the wildest guided meditation but live, with amazing energy, sounds and smells.

So when I heard about another little event put on by this fabulous couple I didn’t hesitate to sign up. This was the Shamanic Sound and Breath Journey, in a smaller venue with only 12 of us. With towering Bose speakers hooked up to all kinds of instruments I knew I was in for a treat. It was a very loving atmosphere and it started with us gathering in a tight circle setting our intention for the 3-4 hour evening. Kai then went around and did a sort of reading with each of us in turn. I didn’t really like what he had to say to me and I didn’t agree. But I forced myself to be openminded about it and in a genuine effort to grow I really tried to look deep inside to learn something about myself.

After we had settled in on the floor they taught us a breathing technique to follow for at least 30-45 while the music was played fairly heavy and loud. I think this was to shake things up and out a bit.  After that we would relax to a smooth flow or all kinds of music and just enjoy the ride. Throughout this journey they would come around the room and perform hands on or crystal healing. One of the guys would roam around with his didge – I had no idea what crazy sounds that instrument could make.

I’ve always known that our Chakra’s were true energy centers in our bodies, but I hadn’t really felt them physically before this experience. Needless to say…. it must have been a little ways into the journey and my whole body was vibrating with the beautiful music. I heard the didge coming closer to me and the sound must have been thrown at my root chakra because I felt this swirling vibration just above my pelvic region over my root chakra. The feeling moved up my body a bit to the next two chakras. That went on for a while until I felt this twinge beneath the skin at my third eye. This shocked me – a real physical sensation beneath the skin.

Soon after that she came around and jabbed the point of a massive crystal into the top of my head. She had my head in her hands opening up my chakras. I felt my third eye open up, and although my eyes were closed I felt my vision change/open up slightly. I now felt my whole head vibrating and I could honestly feel the vibrations going through my crown. I soaked it in for a while and then became completely aware that everything was open except for my heart and my throat. Soon after thinking this he comes over and somehow knows to put one hand on my heart and one hand on my throat. He goes through his healing ritual and sure as shit I completely open up. My heart and throat are vibrating and it’s flowing up and down through my whole body. He releases his hands for a few moments waiting. Then he puts them back seemingly to check and make sure he was successful. Well, he was… they all were. It was blissful – full on vibrations coursing through my body.

After a while the sensations calmed down and it was just relaxing to a variety of music, singing and sounds. Once it was over we all got back together in a circle and checked in. Some of us talked about our experiences. Every one was unique and there was truly lots of love in the room.

I’m absolutely fascinated with that space where science and spirituality overlap. There are so many studies now that are showing there is more to our reality than what we are lead to believe. For me, practically speaking meditation is a large part of this, and mindfulness specifically. One of my favourite science based mindfulness researchers is Daniel J. Siegel. Check out his audio “the mindful brain” or his new one “Mindsight” . It’s absolutely fascinating and I can’t help but wonder why this isn’t yet a main part of our culture. There are literally thousands of studies on meditation with many positive results.

I practice regular meditation not because it has been scientifically proven to be beneficial but because I truly enjoy it. I enjoy the relaxation and the physical and emotional awareness it brings. For me it could simply be considered as plain ole practice for staying in the moment. A friend of mine recently said she thinks that whenever you are completely present you are meditating. I agree with that to a certain extent but for me it goes deeper than that. I hear a lot of people say that they can’t calm their minds down or they think way too much and they can’t meditate because they can’t stop thinking. They feel that you are supposed to be able to complete shut you mind off during meditation. It’s a common misconception.

It’s more about watching your thoughts, without judgement and just learning to become aware of them. As this ability increases the gap between your thoughts increases and the monkey mind does slow down. I don’t believe you can ever truly silence it, but what a gift to be able to stop and make a conscious choice whether to continue negative thinking or switch to something positive. There was a time when I could not imagine sitting quietly for more than a couple of minutes. Now I would actually consider a 10 day silent Vipassana retreat.

Lately I have been practicing a wide variety of Monroe Institute, Hemi-snyc mediations, OSHO active meditations and group guided meditations. Hemi-sync plays different frequencies of sound in each ear and is shown to bring you to the meditative state much quicker. What took those poor monks hours can now take just minutes. I just started practicing OSHO meditations and they are a little more active. They are usually divided into 15 minute segments for a full hour. You go through some sort of physical stage, like dancing or jumping up and down and then you end up sitting or lying quietly in contemplation. It took me a bit to get over my fear or moving around like that in a group….. sober! Recently I practiced a full day of meditations and reiki healing in a large pyramid. That was a great experience and I will tell that small tale another time.

My next little quest will be a sensory deprivation flotation chamber 1 hour meditation!! I thought I would have to travel far and wide but there is one right here in Calgary.

Most everyone is familiar with the story of Noah’s Ark, and most of us are aware of the countless number of other cultures with similar myths of great floods. However, when a closer look is taken at some of the legends and myths the story gets just a little bit stranger. Different texts and legends range the Great Flood anywhere from six thousand up to one hundred thousand years ago, but one thing they all have in common, is that at one time in mankind’s remote past, the seas rose immensely.

Well most of these stories must certainly be variations from the same ancient beginnings, it’s possible the flood really happened far before the ancient Sumerians first chiseled it into stone. Surely it must take more than six thousand years for a story to reach every corner of the earth? Lets not forget this is in a time when long distance travel is very limited… no twitter…

Note the Stone Soldiers standing guard

The Superstition Mountains and Toppenish Ridge

The Jicarilla Apache people of north-eastern New Mexico have several differing myths regarding a Great Flood. In most of them, even when the people escape to the tops of the tallest mountains, the water keeps coming leaving only the people with canoes to survive. In one tale that is particularly intriguing, the chief turns his warriors to stone instead of letting them drown. Legend has it the stone warriors can still be seen today high in the superstition mountains. The Yakima Natives have a similar tale, but much farther north in Washington. Again all of the people flock to the top of Toppenish Ridge, only to be overtaken by water. Now in this story there is no stone warriors but that’s not important.

What’s important about these two versions, is 1)They name specific mountain ranges that sunk beneath the waves, and 2)Neighbouring tribes have corroborating tales, just less specific. Now, this is where it starts to get interesting. The peaks of the Toppenish Ridge mountain range has an average peak height of 543 meters above sea level, with 659 meters (2174 ft)being the highest. That’s a lot of water! The Superstition Mountains make Toppenish Ridge look like nothing, they’re a whopping 1541 meters (5085 ft)above sea level at their highest! Now that’s tiny in the scale of mountains, until you take into consideration that all the legends say they succumb to the water, only the people in canoes survived…

The Surviving Peaks

Now on to some, well not good, but better news. The Native Kwakiutl people of British Columbia, Canada have a flood myth in which there is no mention of why the floods came, in fact many of the aboriginal flood myths don’t mention why the floods came, however some did. Their myths simply states that very long ago a flood covered all the land, except for the mountain peaks to the north east of Bella Bella. Bella Bella is still a native reservation today, and roughly 80-100 kilometers (50-60 miles) north east the coastal mountains have peaks over 2000 meters (6600 ft) above sea level. The people were able to survive here until the waters receded (although no one knows how long) and went through great pains to rebuild the human race.

The Warm Springs Tribes of Oregon have their own version of the flood, except in this one the escape to Mount Jefferson, which happens to peak at 2700 meters (8900 ft) above sea. They believe their ancient ancestors canoe turned to stone and can still be seen today, one slight difference is they believe it was the third flood, which isn’t unique but is definitely less common. In northern India the Assam people say only one couple survived by climbing to the top of Leng Hill. Leng Hill is part of the Aravalli Mountains which peak at 1722 meters (5680 ft), barely high enough.

In Japan it was Mount Niitakayama that the Tsuwo people escaped to. In Papua New Guinea they called in Mount Tauga, which I couldn’t find any information on, however , in the tiny country there are over ten mountain ranges with peaks over our working flood line of 1550-1700 meters (5100-5600 ft), perhaps that’s why life is so diverse there. The Hawaiians fled to Mauna Kea, with summits of up to 4200 meters (13,860 ft), well the Papago survived atop Monte Rosa, which would have had plenty of land out of the water. Mount Baker, 3280 meters (10,080 ft), Sikkim 2640 meters (8700 ft), Southwest Timor 2960 meters (9760 ft), plus several peaks in Venezuela, All with flood myths surrounding them.

The Southern Sonoran Desert in the Sonora state of Mexico has elevations up to 2600 meters (8600 ft), said to have remained dry. In South America there are even elaborate ancient sites built at these high altitudes. I’ll finish with the legend of the Yamana, from what is now considered Tierra Del Fuego. Their mythology reveals that when the waters rose they escaped to five separate mountains, these mountains where Uslaka, Wemarwaia, Auwaratlera, Welanux. And Piatlera.

Today there are no mountains in that region with those names, however there is a curious mountain range called Paine Grande. The interesting thing about Paine Grande is that it has five separate peaks the breach 2100 meters (6900 ft) above sea level. Cuerno Principe 2100 meters (6900 ft), Cerro Paine 2650 meters (8745 ft), and the three towers of Paine coming in at 2260 meters (7450 ft), 2460 meters (8100 ft), and 2500 meters (8250 ft). Interestingly enough, the supposed “Noah’s Ark” was found at 3960 meters (13,068 ft) above sea level, which doesn’t fit with the other flood heights but we’ll come to see that’s the least of the problems.

There are a few other curious similarities between many of the myths that don’t relate directly to the flood levels. Most of the myths have a raven or a crow, although in some it substituted with a duck or a hawk, and of course the famous dove. Also a surprising amount of the myths contain a coyote, wolf or dog, and sometimes a muskrat. In a couple it was a rat or a jackal. The curious thing about the coyote myths is that the coyote often ended up marrying the male or female it was stranded with to repopulate the planet. What? Other instances included a brother and sister, a son and mother and a father and daughter, which must mean numbers were so low they had to resort to inbreeding.

Okay, now the game changer. So assuming that these myths have any truth to them, even if the legends only use these mountain names because there the mountain they live close to now, they still say, time after time, that the only survivors had to flea to mountain peaks. They also reveal that some mountain peaks weren’t high enough and boats were required. Now , lets assume that every bit of ice on the planet melted tomorrow. The accepted levels of ocean rising bringing into consideration both poles and every glacier on the planet is somewhere between 60-80 meters (200-270 ft). Hmmm?

That’s a major problem. Eighty, or even a hundred meter (270-330 ft) higher oceans would be terrible for the coastal cities of the world, but there would still be vast, vast amounts of lands above water. Which means either A)The Ancients are exaggerating, which is possible but seems unlikely due to the staggering number of account from every corner of the earth.
B)The flood was localized to a specific area (I.e. Mesopotamia) either before humans spread, or alternatively the story was so great it just spread and worked its way into all these myths. This is surely possible due to the similarities with some birds and animals, however it’s also possible the myths have just blended together through thousands, possibly tens of thousands of years or even more. C)The Earth had some sort of alteration in its rotation, or an impact (I.e. meteor) creating walls of water hund
reds of meters or even several kilometers tall into every continent. Possible, but none of the myths seem to mention any change in the rising or setting sun in relation to the great flood, or any fireballs in the sky (although both are mentioned in many myths, they are usually their own separate myths) or
D) My favorite, The Moon or some other celestial body came close enough to earth to alter its natural gravitational forces, (or some not yet understood force somehow altered it) causing an extremely massive tide.

The interesting part of D is that there are several myths that elude to sky without a moon before the great flood, with the moon only coming into the night sky after. Perhaps the ‘catching’ of the moon by our earth could have sudden, extreme tidal effects, I don’t know. What I do know is that all of these myths can’t just be stories can they? Where could that much water have possibly come from? And if it was here, where is it now? Whether it was melting ice caps, super tides, or a cosmic impact we may never know, but it’s safe to say something peculiar and unprecedented took place in our ancient past.

Forget Allergy Medicine?


Most people think of spring as prime allergy season, but wintertime can wreak havoc for allergy sufferers as well. Unlikely suspects like a Christmas tree could even be the cause behind some people’s winter allergy attacks. Allergies cause annoying sneezing, sniffling and itching that make people want to reach for sprays or over-the-counter allergy medications. These drugs often make people sleepy, which makes working, driving and other activities difficult, even dangerous. Manage winter allergies naturally.

13 Disclosure possibilities…


The search for any extraterrestrial life is one of the most profound things we, as a species, can do. But as any other life beyond Earth’s shores has yet to be discovered, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) can be a hard-sell. Still, the search continues and scientists are thinking up more and more extreme ways to fine-tune our high-tech array of astronomical instruments to detect intelligence in the stars.

Here are the weird and wonderful ways scientists hope to snare an intelligent alien…

Nuclear Reactors Child’s Play?


The American teen, who gained fame four years ago after designing a fusion reactor he planned to build in the garage of his family’s home, shared his latest endeavor at a TED Conference in southern California on Thursday.

“It’s about bringing something old, fission, into the 21st Century,” Wilson said. “I think this has huge potential to change the world.”

He has designed a small reactor capable of generating 50-100 megawatts of electricity, enough to power as many as 100,000 homes.

The reactor can be made assembly-line style and powered by molten radioactive material from nuclear weapons, Wilson said. The relatively small, modular reactor can be shipped sealed with enough fuel to last for 30 years.

“You can plop them down anywhere in the world and they work, buried under the ground for security reasons,” he said, while detailing his design at TED.

Every couple of years some ambiguous artifact or the skeletal remains of homo sapiens are discovered under such extreme circumstances that logical explanation cannot properly elucidate. The latest is an apparent piece of intelligently machined, highly refined aluminum uncovered inside a piece of alleged three hundred million year old coal extracted from the Chernogorodskiy mines, near the Russian city of Vladivostok.  Although met with some skepticism  as seems to be the case with a lot of Russian science, the gear-toothed aluminum is hardly the first and undoubtedly not the last “out of place artifact” (OOPA) or curiously situated human skeleton.  Whether they be evidence of extreme human antiquity, ancient time travelers  the results of natural planetary processes  or something stranger yet, as I’m sure a certain friend of Forteana may argue, they may well be glitches in the matrix…

As conventional history would have us believe, some two and a half million years ago the first glimpses of modern humans began to take shape.  Australopithecus man walked the earth (actually mostly Mesopotamia) for  somewhere between two and two and a half million years in small savage tribal groups with little to no vocabulary.  Humankind would allegedly spend the next few hundred thousand years as increasingly proficient hunter gatherers, in constantly expanding and rapidly evolving social structures, until inevitably some ten to twenty thousand years ago the innovation of agriculture would instantly make possible the promise of urban civilization.  With the birth of cities would come a few thousand years of ancient empires and dynasties before modern man would eventually learn to Facebook, Tweet, Blog, or Instagram every instant of their increasingly materialistic lives.
Around one hundred and thirty years ago, in the Auriferous Gravels of the Sierra Nevada in California, gold miners discovered evidence of advanced human artifacts and, by modern standards, anatomically correct human skeletons in layers of earth several hundreds of feet below the surface, in earth dated an estimated thirty to sixty million years old.  The artifacts and skeletal remains were discovered in horizontally mined shafts, below layers of ancient volcanic deposits.  Equally puzzling human remains were discovered in Illinois, hundreds of feet deep, in mineral layers tens of millions of years old, interestingly enough directly underneath a giant slab of unbroken slate several feet thick spanning for hundreds of feet in each direction, thus eliminating the possibility of natural submergence into the earth, barring the occurrence of some extremely creative tectonic activity.In 1962 Cynthia Irwin-Williams, with  Ph.D. in anthropology from Harvard, led a team of archaeologists in Hueyatlaco, an archaeological site in Valsequillo, Mexico.  Countless stone tools were discovered scattered throughout the site, the tools ranged from relatively primitive implements , to more sophisticated items such as scrapers and double-edged blades. The diversity of tools made from non-local materials suggested that the region had been used by multiple groups over a considerable period of time.  All was well and good until they requested the services of the U.S geological survey to
get the most accurate date possible for the levels in which the human artifacts were found.  To the amazement of both the archaeologists and the geologists, the layers were dated at 260,000 years, plus minus 60,000 years.  By modern standards humans hadn’t arrived in that part of north america until, at best 30,000 years ago.  The controversy was mostly ignored, although in would have profound imlications on a young geological graduate student, one Virginia Steen-McIntyre.  McIntyre refused to give up on the findings and fought to have herself heard, a plight that in the end, may have cost her a career.
Curiosly, near to this site in 2003 English researchers made a (possible) amazing discovery.  Found in balsaltic lava hidden at the bottom of an abandoned ancient quarry seemed to be human footprints.   Although there is great debate over the actual date of the footprints ( and whether or not they’re footprints at all for that matter although there is very compelling evidence that they are), they appear to be at the very least, 50,000 years old, or 38,000 years before humans were supposed to be in the Americas.  It turns out that this is only the tip of the iceberg,  other estimates have places the footprints at up to 1.3 million years, and, wink wink, around 250,000 years. Sound Familiar?


Along with ancient human remains, every once in awhile some strange, sometimes seemingly advanced artifact or object will arise, grab headlines for a couple of days, and inevitably sink back into oblivion, with little to no mention in the mainstream.  The most recent of these was the aforementioned “Russian Gear”, however its hardly the first.  Near the city of Aiud, in Romania an object of considerable mystery was unearthed by workers in 1974,  while digging a trench roughly 3 meters deep.  Of the three objects discovered, two proved to be  ancient mastodon bones, a rather unexciting species the last of which went extinct around 20,000 years ago.  While we can’t immediately assume the object, a complicated alloy made up of  89% aluminum, 6.2% copper, 2.84% silicon, 1.81% zinc, 0.41%  lead, 0.33% tin, 0.2% zirconium, 0.11% cadmium, 0.0024% nickel, 0.0023% cobalt, 0.0003% bismuth, and trace of galium, was the same age as the mastodon bones that accompany it, we can make some assumptions based on the oxidization processes of aluminum.

Analysis of the thick layer of aluminum oxide ingulfing the strange 8” x 5” x 3” object proved it to have been at least 3-4 hundred years old, inevitably placing it in a period of time before the refinement of aluminum, a process requiring temperatures in excess of one thousand degrees Fahrenheit  also a skill not mastered by modern man until the late eighteen hundreds.  Of course the fact that the object resembles the wedge like landing ‘feet’ of NASA’s lunar lander only fueled more speculation.  To this day the Aluminum wedge of Aiud remains unexplained and has, thus far, eluded skeptics and believers alike.  Across the ocean in South Africa, equally puzzling artifacts were discovered in Precambrian levels of soil, an astounding 2.8 BILLION years old.The Spheres are small, metallic, and extremely hard, vary in size from one to two inches in diameter, and have defied explanation for decades.  While being investigated in the 1970’s, John Hund, while playing with one of the spheres on a table one day, suddenly became aware that the sphere was amazingly well balanced.  One of the spheres was brought to the California Space Institute at the University of California, where it could be properly analyzed, and amazingly, proved to exceed the limits of their technology, technology used to develop gyroscopes for NASA’s space missions. One thing that could be said was the the sphere was balanced within a thousandth of an inch   from   perfection  .  A feat that would prove nearly impossible to replicate, even today.
Of course we can’t leave the discussion of ancient out of place artifacts behind with out first paying homage to the most famous of them all, and coincidentally enough the only openly accepted by (most of) Academia.  The Antikythera mechanism has been an object of vast mystery and intrigue for decades.  Discovered at the turn of the twentieth century in a few hundred feet of water by sponge divers among the wreckage and bounty of an ancient ship field with roman riches.  It wouldn’t be for nearly eighty years before the true significance and implications of the find would come to light when Jacques Cousteau returned to find artifacts to solidly date the shipwrecked remains to approximately 100 B.C.  X-rays and recreations have since revealed an extremely impressive feat of math, engineering, and observation containing over 30 intricately intermingling bronze gears.   Today the  Antikythera mechanism is believed to have been some sort of astronomical analog computer, or quite simply a ancient mechanical calculator.  Research into the Antikythera mechanism also provided the revelation of pointed gears to help finally recreate the ancient roman odometer, used to mark the milestones of the roman roads, some of which can still be seen today.


Along with the artifacts and the skeletal remains of homo sapiens  ancient legends, myths, and scripts help to make the case for extreme human antiquity, the most famous of which are undoubtedly the ancient Hindu Veda.  The Veda are the most ancient of the Hindu scriptures, written in an early form of Sanskrit.  These Vedic texts, along with several other ancient myths, deal with mankind’s place on mother earth for seemingly impossible periods of time.  Modern astronomy calculates the beginning of the present Kali-yuga around this time in the year 3102 B.C., however the Kali-yuga is the last in a cycle of four yugas.  The Kali-yuga is the shortest of these cycle lasts an astonishing 432,000 years, before this was the Dvapara-yuga, lasting 864,000 years predated by the Treta-yuga and the Satya-yuga lasting 1,296,000 and 1,728,000 years respectively.  The entire cycle of the Yugas lasts 4.32 million years and is called a ‘Maha’ and one thousand of these ‘mahas’ makes up one 4.32 billion year long ‘Kalpa’.  A ‘kalpa’ is said to be one day of the lord Brahma, a demigod left in charge of our universe by the slumbering Maha-Vishnu, but we’ll get to him later.  During the day of Brahma, lasting 4.32 billion years don’t forget, life is allowed to exist on earth, however during the night of Brahma the entire universe is destroyed and plunged into darkness and life is no more for an equal amount of time.
The Vedic texts go on to describe how Brahma lives one hundred years of  three hundred and sixty days, or 36,000 days and 36,000 nights equaling an amazing 311,040,000,000,000 years.  This is said to be the exact length of the universe, after this the great Maha Vishnu inhales, killing every Brahma and sucking every universe out if existence, when Maha Vishnu exhales again, new universes emanate from the pores of his skin, along with a new Brahma for each and the 311,040,000,000,000 year cycle begins anew.  It is interesting enough to note that according to the Veda, each ‘kalpa’ (4.32 billion years) is made up of  fourteen ‘manvantara’ periods lasting seventy one yuga cycles (306,720,000 million years).  Each ‘manvantara’ ends with the partial destruction of the universe and begins with its partial recreation.

According to the Veda’s, we are in the seventh manvantara (of Vaivasvata Manu), in the 28th turnover of its 71 yuga cycles, about 5000 years into the Kali-yuga.  The Kali-yuga is unfortunately when human kind is at its worst, greedy, self indulgent, and materialistic.  For that reason human life expectancy in the Kali-yuga is limited to +/- one hundred years.  In say, 427,000 years, humankind will allegedly be thrust back into the Vedic equivalent of the “Golden Age”, a term found throughout several ancient cultures, the Satya-yuga.  On a side note, as this will only be the beginning of the 29th cycle of the yugas in the current manvantara, we’re still about forty cycles (172, 800, 000 years) away from “partial universal destruction”.  With the coming of the Satya-yuga, characterized by virtue, wisdom, religion, and practically no vice or ignorance, humans know no envy or hatred, everyone gets along, and everyone lives to be in the area of 100,000 years.
With the coming of the second yuga, the Treta-yuga, humans have devolved roughly one third, hatred and envy begin to creep in, humans begin to selfishly expect reward for their work and prayer.  During this yuga, life expectancly begins its plummet, humans in this time live around 10,000 years on average.  The last stop before the lowly Kali-yuga we find ourselves in now, was  the Dvapara-yuga, a time even further removed from the Satya-yuga.  Hatred and envy have become rampant, disease and sensual desires arise and further injustice spreads throughout human civilization, people live no more than 1000 years.  Curiously enough,  the last Dvapara-yuga allegedely ended around 5000 years ago, or 3100 b.c, and we do hear tales in mythology and even the bible of human longevity reaching close to a thousand years, i.e Methuselah, the son of Enoch and the grandfather of Noah, allegedly live to be 969 years old. Noah himself was said to have lived an impossibly long 950 years

What exactly these different artifacts, skeletons, and ancient mythology have in common, is still thouroughly unexplained, although one thing seems glaringly obvious, human history is as much a mystery today as it was decades, even centuries ago.  Although much movement has been made on heboth the academic and “pseudo” sides of the equation, the sides are yet to come together. While academia has repeatedly “pushed back” humans time on this earth from what was once one or two hundred thousand years, many scientists today will except anywhere from a half a million up to two million year old human presences.  However we’re still nowhere near the tens, to hundreds of millions, to even the billions of years the out of place artifacts, ancient fossilized human remains, and the legends and myths of the Vedic texts and other cultures from around the globe describe.  One can only wonder if future exploration of planets like Mars might not push back the clock on humanity even further.  Is it possible that humans have risen and fallen from one great civilization after another only to be destroyed, naturally or otherwise?  Perhaps our future holds the keys to our past, perhaps vice versa.  Or is it possible somebody already knows and they’re not telling, as the prophetic George Orwell once said…
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”@grimerica
