Many authors have hypothesized about the possible purpose or use of the thousands of mysterious henges, dolmens, cairns and other Neolithic structures found around the world. Most of the theories are based on little science and lots of conjecture. But author, scientist and businessman John Burke takes a different approach.
Using a magnetometer and electrostatic voltmeter Burke has taken hundreds of readings at approximately 80 different ancient sites including Carnac, Avebury, Stonehenge as well as assorted American mounds and Mesoamerican pyramids. The results are clear and compelling indicating that these ancient sites are places where subtle energies emanate from the Earth or are enhanced by the structure itself.
Beyond the extensive research Burke also conducts a number of agricultural experiments and finds that seeds placed at such sites are stressed by the ambient currents resulting in higher propagation rates, quicker maturity and improved crop yields. Thus it seems that ancient myth and folklore about taking seeds to "sacred sites to be blessed" may be true and indeed have a highly practical purpose.
While many modern scholars consider megalithic man a mere primitive, Seed of Knowledge shows he had wisdom well beyond our current understanding and put it to useful purpose. It will undoubtedly take further experimentation to fully understand all the energies and uses of the many different ancient sites and structures but Burke's work is sure to cause more research to be undertaken - and it might even encourage a few historians to reexamine their opinions of early man.Read more ›
There are many commentators offering diverse opinions on the purpose and true age of the great pyramids and the Sphinx, ranging from UFO landing pads and interstellar navigation systems, to Temples housing chambers of frequency and sound that combine different hertz rates with low magnetism to simulate human emotions including fear and love.
A shaman once told me if the Earth's crust was laid out flat at the time of construction, the pyramids were positioned bang smack in the middle of the Earth's landmass, centered over ley lines to harness the enormous power of the Earth's gravitational field and used as generating stations. Some of the older indigenous traditions, as authors BURKE and HALBERG point out, speak of the connections between Mother Earth and Father Sun, in modern day terms telluric currents possibly creating nodes or ducts. Dr Bruce Lipton and Gregg Braden's efforts hypothesize that the human body, through its carbon base derived from Earth, provides the grounding for our consciousness from the Stars (environment) in such a way that we act as receptors on the crust (membrane) of the earth - in fractal and holographic language the same way the relationship between the membrane of our cells of the human body operate.Read more ›
The thesis of the book is that ancient cultures built megalithic structures (e.g., pyramids and henges) where there were geologically-based electro-magnetic energies in order to concentrate these energies and that they did this to achieve a very practical physical benefit. The authors' experiments testing these effects were the best part. Some eye-popping photos of their tests prop up what might otherwise seem to be incredulous claims if you are a natural skeptic (that's me!). They also present sources from the scientific literature explaining why and how these effects can be achieved with these energies.
Seed of Knowledge comes right out of left field with a whole new take on these ancient structures. Even if you were already an admirer of ancient civilizations, this book will raise your image of them. It is rich in information and also a fairly easy read. Any fan of the past will enjoy this book.
