INTERVIEW: Graham Hancock Speaks Out


Graham-Hancock

Graham Hancock is one of the most eminent researcher-writers on true world history. His book Fingerprints of the Gods verified my suspicion [1] that we are not the world’s first great civilization and helped propel me down a new path in my journey. He has also become an outspoken proponent of the use of Ayahuasca as a way to open the mind and expand the consciousness.

When William Henry announced that Graham would be speaking at the Revelations Symposium in Nashville, I signed up and booked my flight.

We spent 3 days in the intimate beauty of the Scarritt-Bennett Center listening and learning from Graham, William and Whitley Strieber. Then as the chairs were being folded and with only minutes before leaving for the airport, he graciously agreed to sit down with me and field a few questions:

1. In regards to your first book The Sign & the Seal do you think we should insist on examination of the artifact at Axum? Would we ever be allowed?

2. In Fingerprints of the Gods you proved that we know a lot less than we think we know about the history of mankind on Earth. What for you is the critical information that needs to be taught to our kids, to the general population…and how will that change the way we see ourselves today?

3. I find Zecharia Sitchin’s research intriguing but I’m not totally convinced. How much credence do you hold to the idea that we may have been genetically modified slaves of an advanced alien species?

4. According to Israeli archeologists Amnon Ben-Tor and Sharon Zuckerman there is no physical evidence for The Exodus as told in The Bible [2] (click ‘transcript’)…suggesting that perhaps the Ark of the Covenant didn’t come from Egypt but was already in Jerusalem. Might the Ark hold a crucial piece of Zecharia Sitchin’s alien landing beacon?

5. Why did you decide that writing fiction would be an appropriate move for your writing career?

6. In Entangled, you introduce the idea of magic mushrooms, what The Clan call “Demon Penises” and the Uglies call “Little Teachers”. Is psilocybin a hallucinogen or a key to open a door to another dimension?

7. What do you think the role of psychedelics were in ancient civilizations…and how do you think they can help our modern, disjointed world?

8. What if anything do you think will come of the TEDx Talks controversy? A more open discussion on “what is science”….?

9. Are you a spiritual anarchist?

10. Who or what is God?

Graham Hancock’s new book War God will be available through Amazon UK on May 30th and later this year through Amazon Canada on August 13. You can likewise read a few sample chapters for free at the website War-God.com

We Are All One


I find the current world paradigm of separation repugnant.

Here in Québec there is talk again of separating from Canada, thankfully no where near a majority (30%). When Palestine was separated in 1948 it was likewise the opposite direction we should have gone, but in that case it wasn’t up to the Palestinians to decide, Western powers decided for them.

What we really need is a movement toward ONEness…Like the Global Oneness Day October 24th.

The New World Order


Well, the 2012 Olympics in London are officially over and wouldn’t you know…no new world order. The Anti-Christ didn’t win gold, silver or bronze…he never even showed up!

From the unveiling of the 2012 logo which some felt spelt out “Zion”, to the design of the one-eyed London Olympic mascots, the “rainbow riding” Wenlock and Mandeville (below), the conspiracy theories were running as rampant as competitors in Monty Python’s Silly Olympics.

Where Do We Go From Here?
With the no-show new world order at the Olympics I felt it was time to do a brief overview of the misunderstood idea of a New World Order and how the symbols, one in particular, may represent something very real delivered to us through time from an as yet unknown pre-historic people.

Novus Ordo Seclorum
Novus Ordo Seclorum is a Latin Phrase translated as “New Order of the Ages” or for conspiracy theorists, “New World Order”.  And it is usually juxtaposed with the Eye of Providence (all seeing eye of God) floating over an unfinished 4-sided pyramid.

This combination has been used on the reverse side of the Great Seal of the United States since 1782 but is most famously displayed in the wallet of every American on the back of the $1 bill (below).

From my work in marketing I understand the power of symbols and this symbol is way more powerful than the symbols for Nike, Pepsi and The Gap combined.

So what does it mean?
The meaning of this symbol is open for interpretation and there are many. What I feel to be the most thought out interpretation comes from David Wilcock in his book The Source Field Investigations: The Hidden Science and Lost Civilizations Behind the 2012 Prophecies.

David explains that “the Great Seal may reveal a time-encoded prophecy… [about a coming] Golden Age…believed to begin in 2012.” (pg. 426) (Read the full interpretation in his book.)

Masonic Connection
There’s no doubt in my mind that the symbol is clearly Masonic, used by the men who laid the foundations of the United States of America to relay a message first transmitted by a civilization which pre-dates known history. A civilization which Graham Hancock goes into at great length and detail in his book Fingerprints of the Gods: The Quest For Earth’s Lost Civilization.

Personally, I’m not as convinced as David Wilcock that it’s a symbol of a coming worldwide Golden Age as I am that it’s meant to be interpreted as a personal goal or target for our own evolution to “enlightenment”. As David Wilcock eludes to, the open eye at the pyramid’s top is a clear reference to the pineal gland, which I concur is the seat of our connection to what he calls “The Source Field” and what I refer to plainly as God.

33 Degrees to Enlightenment
I will go into much greater detail in my book about this idea, but, the 33 degrees in Masonic hierarchy are a direct relation to the 33 vertebrae which start at the root chakra (Muladhara) and lead up to the pineal gland at the brow chakra (Ajna)…the following and final step leading to Samadhi or a “non-dualistic state of consciousness”. Likewise, I don’t believe that for the fictitious part of the Jesus Christ story it was a coincidence that he “died” at 33…and made his full transformation to The Light of the World.

Like the symbol of the all seeing eye, the Jesus story is meant to provoke us to our own Samadhi enlightenment. A target for our journey toward a personal new world order!

Doctors Don’t Know Everything
Doctors only know as much about the human body that can be disected from it on a physical level, but it’s the things that cannot be seen with the eyes or the edge of a scalpel that are critical to our existence here on Earth and our connection to the living Universe.

Conclusion
Symbols like we saw at the Olympics are prodding us along, tirelessly trying to wake us up to the supernatural powers we all carry inside of us. I believe we have the power to transform ourselves and in turn to change the world, guided by the symbols we are exposed to, toward what I call The Nous Age.

Reality and the Extended Mind


JOURNALIST AND AUTHOR Adrian Nelson has released the first installment of his documentary, Reality and the Extended Mind. It covers the GCP (Global Consciousness Project) in some detail, along with interview segments with Dean Radin of IONS, Brenda Dunne and Bob Jahn of the PEAR lab, and Herb Mertz and Adam Curry of Psyleron, Inc.

The World and indeed the Universe is an awe inspiring place, we can only TRY to understand it better.

PROBLEMA the Film


Who are we in the 21st Century?

A cinematic interpretation of the world’s largest round table gathering, PROBLEMA is a visually imaginative, thought-provoking invitation to a world of global dilemmas. Spanning seventeen questions confronting who we are and where we’re going, the film follows the insights, perceptions, reflections and views of over 100 people from more than 50 nations sat together in one circle.

A not-for-profit production, PROBLEMA is freely available to watch and to download via their website. If you’d like to support the film, we encourage you to host a screening, to sign our guestbook or to consider making a micro-donation to help further its human connection.

My Uncle Kamal Boullata was one of the guests invited to speak.

Welcome to The Nous Age


I‘m thrilled you’ve discovered my corner of the world wide web and I hope you decide to jump into the discussions below or at least subscribe in the top right corner. I don’t care if you disagree vehemently or agree with me whole heartedly (or are somewhere in between like most of my readers) I personally invite you to become a part of our discussion.

Why This Website
This website is a sketch pad for my ongoing research, which I plan to publish as a book tentatively titled The Door to The Nous Age. It’s where I am connecting the dots between cutting edge scientific research in quantum physics and psi, and religious traditions from around the world. It’s a place for me to pose theories and hypotheses on this building alignment of science and spirit and what it means to our modern “connected” world. It’s also a place for me to field criticisms and be inspired to move my research into new directions. And along the way, you’ll get a sneak peek into what you can expect from my book.

Full Disclosure
I am neither a scientist nor a theologian and I don’t pretend to be.

What I am is a journalist with an insatiable curiosity and desire for taking things apart to understand why they work and how they work. From a journalistic point of view I am documenting new scientific discoveries and attempting to coorelate them to what religions have been saying for thousands of years. And because I like Indiana Jones so much (who doesn’t), a bit of archeology to help us better understand the world dominant Abrahamic religions and what clues to our past they’ve been hiding in plain site all this time. Is it possible that we are only re-discovering what a civilization that predates known history already knew?

Objectivity
Some would ask what business I have talking about science when I’m not a scientist; or talking about religion when I am likewise not an expert. In two words: objective journalism. I think it’s precisely that I don’t have any so called professional truths to uphold that I am able to explore ideas unencumbered by either religious, scientific or archaeological dogma.

What I Believe
We are in the midst of some kind of paradigm shift, NOT a cataclysmic shift like many doomsday-ers are predicting but simply a change in the way we see ourselves as a society, as a species, as a planet. And this change in perspective that we are moving into is what I call The Nous Age…welcome!

Is This Liberty?


The best place to hide something is in plain sight…

THE STATUE OF LIBERTY’s full name is “Liberty Enlightening the World”. It was given to the United States by France to celebrate their alliance during the Revolutionary War. The statue was built in Paris and then shipped to the U.S. in 1885.

Various parts of the statue were on display throughout Paris as they were completed. For example Liberty’s head was exhibited in the gardens at the Tracadéro, and her torch was on display as well, as you can observe in the images below.

She has stood in all her splendour outside New York City, just south of Ellis Island, as the symbol of freedom for generations of Americans ever since…but is she really who she says she is?

The Great Imposter
Now, look at this picture:

What or who do you see?

Well, it’s not what you think…say hello to Sol Invictus “the contriver of light”…or the giver of enlightenment. He was the official sun god of the later Roman empire.

The Sun of God
Sol Invictus literally translates as “The Invincible Sun”. A case can easily be mounted to show the entire story of Jesus, the Son of God, is a plagerised version of the story of this Sun God.

To take it a bit further, the grafting of Sol Invictus feast days to the tale of a boy born of a virgin in a manger in Bethlehem and visited by 3 kings are all part of a conspiracy to personify celestial events, but for what reason? These stories can be traced even further back than the golden age of Rome to 3000 B.C. to ancient Egypt’s story of Horus.

I have reason to believe that the story of Horus may have been borrowed from an advanced civilization that pre-dates known history…but that will have to wait for another post.

Toward the Rising Sun
Maybe that The Statue of Liberty faces toward the Winter time sunrise in New York (and toward Sunset Park in Brooklyn) is a clue meant for us to uncover her true identity?

Most people mistakenly believe that she faces South toward ships arriving into New York City’s Upper Bay.

The Truth
Should we add Liberty to the long list of solar gods? Or is she indeed the Sol Invictus for the New Rome? Perhaps this is all just a case of mistaken identity…?

Another interesting question would be what do the 7 points on her crown represent. Is it the light of liberty on the 7 seas and 7 continents as we’ve been told …or perhaps do they represent the 7 power centers (chakra) of the human body…and if so how does that relate to the power of the Sun?

Nobody knows the truth of The Statue of Liberty for sure but it certainly begs many questions…
