ISBN: 9781591431176
Availability: BACKORDERED-no date available
Published: Bear & Company - August 13th, 2010

This anthology presents alternative theories on history, the origins of civilization, ancient technology, and the nature of consciousness. Topics range from the effect of cosmic rays on human evolution to NASA's cover-up of ancient Martian civilizations.

“This incredible anthology introduces the revolutionary work of cutting-edge researchers who are currently defining a new view of not only the high level of science and technology in the remote past but also the relationship of humanity to cosmic cycles over vast expanses of time. Lost Knowledge of the Ancients may hold the key to our future.”
(Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., author of Voyages of the Pyramid Builders and Pyramid Quest )

“These accounts of ‘lost’ or anomalous knowledge are building blocks of an alternative universe, and, taken altogether, they reveal something of the deep structure of this alternative universe. They also show that this universe made up of anomalies may be more real than the everyday, commonsensical one!”
(Mark Booth, author of The Secret History of the World )

MBB: Walk Up Gallery Window Artist: Armando Soto

Armando Soto is our featured artist for the month of October. The Walk Up Gallery Window is on the River Street side of the store and is viewable 24 hours a day. 

Artist's Statement

My paintings and drawings are inspired by the Tainos, the indigenous people of Puerto Rico, as well as by aspects of traditional Spanish folk art and African art. As a Nuyorican, I like to explore influences from the art, symbols and traditions of these aboriginal cultures through a contemporary viewpoint often relating to my own life experiences.

My work is a mixture of both traditional and contemporary religious, musical and literary freferences. With the use of bright colors and bold forms, I create a visually poetic world somewhere between the past and present, bound by powerful, metaphysical forces of belief and custom.
