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

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.
