The 2nd Coming of Human Civilization

That would be us.

(Writing as JJM) I’ve become convinced that there was an ancient civilization with global reach that was brought back to the stone age in a cataclysm 12,800 years ago. We know that the last ice age ended abruptly then, and global sea levels rose 400 feet. The earth was going through a comet belt at that time, and one theory is that there were devastating meteor impacts. The crater from one of them has been located recently in Greenland.

This video introduces the evidence.

…but I had previously found this evidence and more in books by Graham Hancock, Brien Foerster, and Charles Mann.

If you’re already familiar with this story, follow up on the many threads in this video. If not, and you want a one-line proof: consider that the pyramids could not have been built by people who had no iron, no precision measurement instruments or even the wheel. The stones are transported from too far, cut too precisely, set too accurately N-S-E-W. A simple calculation of the time necessary to cut and position millions of stone blocks proves that it could not have been done by human muscle.

  • There are other pyramids in Eastern Europe, in Southern and mid-Western America, in South America, in China. Some are larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza.
  • There is DNA evidence that links native peoples in the Amazon to tribes in the Malaysian archipelago.
  • There are precision drill holes in a bracelet discovered in a Denisovan cave, at least 10,000 years old.
  • There are clear signs of machine tooling in rock artifacts from the area around Alexandria, including a block of granite cut part-way through with a saw, then abandoned when it cracked; also many drill holes in ancient rock that were clearly made with precision power drills.

 

Scriabin

Listen to Andrei Gavrilov perform the 4th Piano Sonata in F#m of  Alexander Scriabin, born this day in 1872.

In a light mist, transparent vapor
Lost afar and yet distinct
A star gleams softly.
How beautiful! The bluish mystery
Of her glow
Beckons me, cradles me.
O bring me to thee, far distant star!
Bathe me in trembling rays
Sweet light!
Sharp desire, voluptuous and crazed yet sweet
Endlessly with no other goal than longing
I would desire
But no! I vault in joyous leap
Freely I take wing
Mad dance, godlike play!
Intoxicating, shining one!
It is toward thee, adored star
My flight guides me
Mad dance, godlike play!
Intoxicating, shining one!
Toward thee, created freely for me
To serve the end
My flight of liberation!
In this play
Sheer caprice
In moments I forget thee
In the maelstrom that carries me
I veer from they glimmering rays
In the intensity of desire
Thou fadest
O distant goal
But ever thou shinest
As I forever desire thee!
Thou expandest, Star!
Now thou art a Sun
Flamboyant Sun! Sun of Triumph!
Approaching thee by my desire for thee
I lave myself in they changing waves
O joyous god
I swallow thee
Sea of light
My self-of-light
I engulf thee!

— Scriabin’s own words

One Hundred Years Hence

One hundred years hence, what a change will be made
In politics, morals, religion and trade,
In statesmen who wrangle or ride on the fence,
These things will be altered a hundred years hence.

Our laws then will be uncompulsory rules,
Our prisons converted to national schools,
The pleasure of sinning ’tis all a pretense,
And people will find that, a hundred years hence.

All cheating and fraud will be laid on the shelf,
Men will not get drunk, nor be bound up in self,
But all live together, good neighbors and friends,
As Christian folks ought to, a hundred years hence

Then woman, man’s partner, man’s equal shall stand,
While beauty and harmony govern the land,
To think for oneself will be no offense,
The world will be thinking, a hundred years hence.

Oppression and war will be heard of no more
Nor blood of a slave leave his print on our shore,
Conventions will then be a useless expense,
For we’ll go free-suffrage a hundred years hence.

Instead of speech-making to satisfy wrong,
We’ll all join the chorus to sing Freedom’s song;
And if the Millennium is not a pretense,
We’ll all be good [neighbors] a hundred years hence.

— Frances Dana Barker Gage (1852) (from the UU Hymnal)


A hundred years hence
Who it is
With such curiosity
Reads my poems
A hundred years hence?
Shall I be able to send you
An iota of joy of this fresh spring morning
The flower that blooms today
The songs that the birds sing
The glow of today’s setting sun
Filled with my feelings of love?

Yet for a moment
Open up your southern gate
And take your seat at the window
Look at the far horizon
And visualize in your mind’s eye —
One day a hundred years ago
A restless ecstasy drifted from the skies
And touched the heart of this world
The early spring mad with joy
Knew no bounds
Spreading its restless wings
The southern breeze blew
Carrying the scent of flowers’ pollen
All on a sudden soon
They coloured the world with a youthful glow
A hundred years ago.
That day a young poet kept awake
With an excited heart filled with songs
With so much ardour
Anxious to express so many things
Like buds of flowers straining to bloom
One day a hundred years ago.

A hundred years hence
What young poet
Sings songs in your homes!
For him
I send my tidings of joy of this spring.
Let it echo for a moment
In your spring, in your heartbeats,
In the humming of the bees
In the rustling of the leaves
A hundred years hence.

— Rabindranath Tagore (1895), tr Kumud Biswas

The oldest zoo

Bones recovered from an archaeology site at Hierakonpolis (south Egypt, east of the Nile) were diverse and unexpected. There were animals from all over Africa: baboon, an elephant covered in cosmetics (accompanied by an amethyst bead and an ivory bracelet), numerous cats and dogs, a leopard, two crocodiles, aurochs (an extinct species of wild ox), hippos, and gazelles. Soft-shell turtles, gazelles, hartebeest, ibexes, ostriches, and Barbary sheep.

These (and their representations in ancient paintings) are already evidence of travel and exchange all over Africa, distances of up to 4,000 miles, traveled 5,000 years ago. More controversial, there are claims of animal remains from Siberia, and animals thought to be extinct long before this time. Read about pygmy mammoths.

JStor science article by  Lorraine Boissoneault

Animals were not lesser creatures who needed protection or personification; they were equally powerful and had an obvious influence on the world. The sacrifice of an animal was not meant as an offense, but an aid to its becoming an intermediary between men and gods.

Graham Hancock and Brien Foerster make a convincing case for an advanced civilization preceding Ancient Egypt by several thousand years, with machine tools such as we have today, wiped out by Noah’s flood at the sudden end of the last ice age, 12,800 years ago.

Newtonian Theology

New Atheists like to celebrate an anti-Christmas on Newton’s birthday (according to the Julian calendar, 1642) There are two ironies associated with Newton Day. The first is that Newton was a prolific and original Christian theologian, arguably a larger part of his life than science. Second, the Newtonian world-view that explained all and had no room for God was supplanted in the 20th Century by Quantum Mechanics, which is far more ambiguous in its spiritual implications.

The Newtonian world-view came into ascendancy only in a century after Newton’s death, and it is fair to say that he would have regarded it as alien and demonstrably wrong.
