Mysteries of the Ancient Past, Glenn Kreisberg, Inner Traditions, 2012, $18
Mysteries of the Ancient Past is labeled as a Graham Hancock reader. Hancock is a British writer who specializes in unconventional theories involving ancient civilizations, stone monuments or megaliths, altered states of consciousness, ancient myths and astronomical/astrological data from the past. One of the main themes running through many of his books is the possible global connection with a "mother culture" from which he believes all ancient historical civilizations sprang. Glenn Kreisberg is the editor of this collection of 17 articles on a wide range of topics, all with themes similar to Hancock’s unusual writing. One fascinating article, “The Case for the Daemon,” speculates that one of our two brain hemispheres is actually an independent being (a higher self that watches over the lower self). A fascinating read.
