Adventures With Cassiopaea

Chapter 28


Over and over again we find these odd clues that point to an ancient civilization that existed something over ten thousand years ago. There has been a raging controversy for generations between pro-Atlantians and anti-Atlantians about this. There seem to be sufficient archaeological remains to justify a serious scientific study based on such a hypothesis. Archaeology and ethnology being observational sciences, not experimental, have built their entire framework upon the study of those remains. And when we look closely at the array of discoveries in those fields, we discover bits and pieces of cultures of almost unspeakable age. The fact that uniformitarian science barely allows the idea of cataclysmic destruction to be part of the hypothesis cripples archaelogist and, in the end, may make fools of them all.

Without the algorithm of cyclic cataclysm, archaeologists cannot fully understand what they observe, nor can they explain the anomalies here and there, and the lack of other evidence that ought to be here and there (if one assumes great antiquity of civilization with no cataclysms). The fact seems to be that, what does continue to exist in terms of archaeological remains from times before 7,000 or more years ago, have been subjected to geological and cosmic cataclysms of almost incomprehensible violence and few major relics remain for perusal. Those few, however, are cast aside as the anomalies of archaeology and ethnology, and their very existence is buried or denied in efforts to avoid toppling the house of cards so laboriously established by those sciences.

Nevertheless, we find that all over the globe, with few exceptions, these studies break down almost completely right around 7,000 to 10,000 BC, at which point they meet with what mathematician call a "discontinuity." Immediately after this discontinuity, all of the hot-spots of ancient civilization that archaeologists accept as valid suddenly appear with no indication gradual, uniformitarian development. What is more, there seems to be considerable indication that these developments were degenerate remnants of something already lost in the mists of antiquity.

Entire libraries of books have been written demonstrating this antiquity of man and his civilizations, but it has not yet been accepted, even in principle, by any branch of science. The scientific thought police oppose any type of cataclysmic change in the structure of the earth and will go to any extremes to avoid coming to grips with its evidence.

The portolans studied by Hapgood demonstrate that there have been very ancient cultures, or civilizations which may have and could have developed methods of flight. The existence of the great megalithic structures further suggest that this mode of flight may have been much simpler and more effective than ours, and more directly associated with forces which we do not yet comprehend. Yes, we are dealing with indirect evidence, not always of the greatest clarity. Yet in support of such antiquity, we note that there is stonework carved out of the solid mountain of rock in South America, which certainly antedate the Andean glaciers, and almost as certainly predate the formation of the mountains themselves. This work is superior in technique to anything that can currently be produced by our mechanized civilization. It seems almost patently evident that the construction, sculpting and tunneling of our ancestors could only have been accomplished by forces different from those in use by us today. The problem can be solved by admitting to a levitating force developed and used by the same common denominator - space flight - which simplifies so many other puzzles for us. And it seems that these very things are what the myths of antiquity, including that greatest myth of all: the legend of theHoly Grail, are telling us.

On the basis of the evidence of an antiquity involving epochs of 50,000 to 200,000 or 300,000 years or more, we postulate the ancient development of some kind of science which either produced space flight or was brought to this third planet from the Sun via space flight. In either case, it is of great importance to consider these matters in terms of the hows and whys and who's. Most books on these subjects approach the matter from one of these assumptions or the other, with little regard to what might be behind it all when considered in light of present day observations. For us, the most telling thing about this is that either angle is abhorrent to science and to most religions. Because, in the end, nothing but the existence of an extremely ancient high civilization answers all of the problems presented by observed and recorded facts. And that is what led us to ask the questions about what is the well-spring of our beliefs, what is the source of the denial and the rejection of what is observable in favor of an imposed belief system?

As noted in previous chapters, the theme of the Golden Age describes an ancient time during which different conditions existed on the earth itself, one of these being a perpendicular axial orientation. The terrestrial axis is currently inclined at 23.5 degrees. The early Greek philosophers viewed this tilt as an "irregular condition," and not something that had been fixed since the beginning. Anaxagoras [Circa 500-428] wrote:

In the beginning the stars moved in the sky as in a revolving dome, so that the celestial pole which is always visible was vertically overhead; but subsequently the pole took its inclined position. [Diogenes Laertius IX, 33, Dicks 1970]

Hesiod [700 BC] discussed the cyclical conception of time in his Works and Days, saying that the human race had five ages: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Heroic, and Iron. The Heroic age is seen by many scholars as an addition to an earlier scheme meant to accommodate Greek history. I have a somewhat different view as we will discuss further on.

During the first of these ages, mankind lived under the rule of Kronos, or Saturn, and were on friendly terms with the gods, and were free from hard work, pain, and old age. Plato wrote about a periodic reversal of the rotation of "the world," his intent probably being the entire "cosmic machine," rather than just the planet, being the cause of the end of one age and the beginning of another. He tells us that all the stories of the changes in the rising and setting of the sun and planets originate from the same event in cosmic history: the usurpation of the rule of Chronos by Zeus.

When God was shepherd there were no political constitutions and no taking of wives and begetting of children. For all men rose up anew into life out of the earth, having no memory of the former things. Instead they had fruits without stint from trees and bushes; these needed no cultivation but sprang up of themselves out of the ground without man's toil. For the most part they disported themselves in the open needing neither clothing nor couch, for the seasons were blended evenly so as to work them no hurt, and the grass which sprang up out of the earth in abundance made a soft bed for them. [Plato, Statesman 272a, translated by J.B. Skemp]

But this age came to a close and the gods of that age gave up their benevolent governance, turning the rule of the world over to something "other." Plato describes the close of the era in terms of Pole Shift:

…The gods of the provinces, who had ruled under the greatest god, knew at once what was happening and relinquished the oversight of their regions. A shudder passed through the world at the reversing of its rotation, checked as it was between the old control and the new impulse which had turned end into beginning for it and beginning into end. This shock set up a great quaking which caused - in this crisis of the world just as in the former one - destruction of living creatures of all kinds. Then, after the interval needed for its recovery, it gained relief at last from its clamors and confusion, and attaining quiet after great upheavel it returned to its ordered course and continued in it, having control and government of itself and of all within it. [Plato, Statesman]

Herodotus seems to be quoting from the same source that Plato utilized when he reports:

Thus in the period of eleven thousand three hundred and forty years they said that there had arisen no god in human form; nor even before that time or afterwards among the remaining kings who arose in Egypt, did they report that anything of that kind had come to pass. In this time they said that the sun had moved four times from his accustomed place of rising, and where he now sets he had thence twice had his rising, and in the place from whence he now rises he had twice had his setting; and in the meantime nothing in Egypt had been changed from its usual state, neither that which comes from the earth nor that which comes to them from the river nor that which concerns diseases or deaths. [Herodotus, The Histories, book II]

Both Herodotus and Plato are explicit in saying that the phenomenon is dual natured, that something happens "out there" and the results on the earth are cataclysmic. Herodotus says that it happened four times in an 11 thousand year period, and Plato says that it is an ever-recurring phenomenon.

As also noted, interpreters of these passages generally divide into two groups: the catastrophists and the uniformitarians. The catastrophists suggest that the description is that of a literal 180 degree flip of the earth. Comte George Louis Buffon, an eighteenth century naturalist, proposed a scientific theory of polar shifts to account for the evidence of a warm climate having once existed in the Arctic, as shown by the fossils of trees and tropical creatures. Jean-Jacques Rousseau adopted this idea as an explanation for the evolution of mankind; a pole shift that initiated seasons would force human beings to build shelters, migrate to new lands, develop their skills and so on.

But modern science was rapidly moving away from catastrophism under the influence of Laplace and Lyell. Through their writings, the ideas of the steady-state of the universe and the peaceful, gradual changing of the earth were firmly established in science. It was at this point that the bifurcation in interpretations occurred, and material science established the uniformitarian view, while catastrophism was consigned to the realm of "fringe science" or occultism.

Nevertheless, through an interesting series of events, the "uniformitarian" view made its way into "fringe science" and occultism as well! Such groups explain that the "pole shift" is merely "astrological" world ages based on the precession of the equinoxes. This means that the change of the sun's rising, as described by Plato and Herodotus, relates only to its shift through the signs of the zodiac. So, the sun having moved "four times from his accustomed place of rising" in the allotted period is just noting the fact that the sun has precessed through four signs of the zodiac. [A third view is that the ancients just kept renaming the directions and there was nothing cosmic in these ideas at all, but we aren't concerned with that ridiculous suggestion here.] These "occult uniformitarians" are still active today, as we will see.

We invite the reader to share in our seeking of Truth by reading with an Open, but skeptical mind. We do not encourage "devotee-ism" nor "True Belief." We DO encourage the seeking of Knowledge and Awareness in all fields of endeavor as the best way to be able to discern lies from truth. The one thing we can tell the reader is this: we work very hard, many hours a day, and have done so for many years, to discover the "bottom line" of our existence on Earth. It is our vocation, our quest, our job. We constantly seek to validate and/or refine what we understand to be either possible or probable or both. We do this in the sincere hope that all of mankind will benefit, if not now, then at some point in one of our probable futures.
