Digging deep into the past and unearthing clues which gradually fall into place when combined together with research done by scientists from different fields mentioned above, Laura uncovers a complex pattern. At the center of the pattern is periodic cometary interaction and widespread destruction of earth's civilizations. Copious amounts of research data from scientists like Clube/Napier (astronomy), Firestone/West/Warwick-Smith (Nuclear Chemistry/Geology), Baillie (Dendrochronology) points to this uncomfortable but inescapable reality of cyclic cometary catastrophes. Yet,mythology and historical links covered in the book show that such catastrophes are survivable - that the destruction while overwhelming to the human mind is never total. Then a study of psychology and philosophy begins to show how surviving human beings - under the influence of what can only be described as mental pathology from a normal "human" point of view, possibly facilitated by genetic mutations arising out of cataclysmic conditions - start to distort and systematically falsify the records of such events. On such a distorted foundation of historical knowledge, human beings create social and political structures (including contributions from both science and religion) of inequity which deviate far from universal rationality perhaps inviting the natural response of cataclysms of a planetary nature thus closing the loop.
The detailed analysis of Greek philosophers form one of the high points of the book in my opinion. I came out with a different and far more rich understanding of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle whom I had encountered in detail before. Diogenes, Heraclitus and particularly Posidonius were fresh revealations as was the analysis of Stoic philosophy. And in this regard, I would venture to say that the author is perhaps more than qualified to earn the title of a modern "Delian diver".
As I write this review in the aftermath of a meteor explosion over the Russian town of Chelyabinsk in the Urals, it becomes clear how important the information contained in the book is for understanding what is going on with our world at present and what probably lies in store for humanity as it marches down blind and oblivious to past history as well as the present-day signs that the universe has been sending us.
This lifetime quest of hers is a historical who/what-dunnit, back-filling while expanding her search from years of clues, hints, intuition, rational deductions, and nonstop digestion from all the accumulated BS called 'history' as she uses the tools of science itself to pick through the few bones that remain. Like Sherlock, it seems Knight enjoys the challenge and is well up to the task of finding that proverbial needle in a haystack, in a field full of them and full of BS. Indeed it truly is 'the road less traveled'.
She has resuscitated the long dead and forgotten myths and history as they've merged in their journey back into the archetypes from which they were born and from which new chapters have already begun, for Time, like history, waits for no one and lessons not learned today can await a fresh day tomorrow, but Knight seems unwilling to rest on her night-watch as she turns belief into knowledge which empowers and strengthens her resolve to finish what she's started and encourages others to do the same. Her quest seems to reflect the purgatorial journey out of Plato's Cave, as the seeker needs learn to adjust their eyes to the light, feeble at first, but one that grows stronger with each step taken out of the never-ending Night of darkness and into the never-ending Light of Day.
What does she discover in this latest chapter of her story? In short, the secret history of the world and how to get out alive. She discovers the cosmic methodology used by creation as 'dark thoughts that turn to dark deeds attract dark matter'. Like attracts like, same as a magnet, ready or not, here it comes as Mother Nature always comes in to clean up the mess her children have made. She discovers the repeating patterns of history on a grand scale, one step at a time out of the Cave, a journey that will continue on in Volume Three. Coming soon, but will it be soon enough?
As a graduate of `Religious Studies', I must confess that I have learned more about the subject of religion, its history, and how it is intimately connected with the various other disciplines via the works of Laura Knight-Jadczyk than I did throughout my four rigorous years of study at university/college.
I highly recommend this book along with "The Secret History of the World and How to Get Out Alive" for anyone seeking knowledge/the Truth about that which has been kept hidden from them.
