This book starts with nuclear weapons. A study of the history and results of nuclear tests in various locations on our planet leads Dr Farrell into a discussion of how location on our planet might influence the amount of energy produced from these weapons. Some nuclear tests produced far more energy than the components of the nuclear bombs would predict. Where did this excess energy come from? Is Planet Earth a closed system, or can we have access to energy from space? What does this mean for everything? Is there a different way of understanding physics that can provide endless energy without burning fossil fuels or harnessing natural forces like wind and sunshine? What would that mean for the interests who have benefited from the sale of these commodities for centuries?
Dr Farrell's book then travels through advanced physics to geometry, mythology, archaeology and the structure of our solar system and galaxy. It's a fascinating tour.
The overall picture that Farrell presents is that ancient monuments all over the planet seem to be located in specific places that share some important mathematical ratios in terms of their design and size - and location. The ancient myths associated with these sites indicate that they are places where the gods came down to earth and interacted with human beings. Most of the ancient civilisations commonly understood as the builders of these monuments admit that they inherited them from earlier, lost civilisations.
Farrell suggests that the mathematics built in to these monuments, their locations and the myths about them, are trying to convey information about the technology of a very highly advanced civilisation that existed on Earth tens or hundreds of thousands of years ago - well before any of the groups we associate with them, like the ancient Egyptians, Mayans etc. He then asks, if a highly advanced civilisation was destroyed by an ancient cataclysm, how would they leave behind enough information to help future generations reacquire the technological expertise?
It would seem that many of these hints about physics, energy and the solar system were embedded into myths that later formed the basis of various religions.
Dr Farrell includes a discussion of the creation myths of very ancient peoples. He shows us that the Bible is not the only ancient text to refer to emptiness before creation. It is not the only ancient story to refer to trinities either. What does this mean? Is it trying to teach us about history; about how the world was destroyed and recreated? Is it trying to teach us about the basic geometry of all matter? Is it trying to point us to a new understanding of physics that works equally well for the extremely large (like the galaxy) and the extremely small (like an atom)? Is there a way to use this information to produce enough energy to support another very high civilisation?
The most profound question is, how did some ancient civilisations go from inheriting existing monuments to using those as sites for worship of deities - when that worship demanded ritual human sacrifice? Who were the ancient gods who demanded this from mankind? Were we created in God's image - or are we a slave race, bred only to serve someone else?
With his understanding of physics, mathematics, ancient texts, mythology, archaeology, astrophysics and theology, Dr Farrell produces a compelling overview of this topic. He takes the time to explain the major concepts, because readers don't necessarily understand this range of subjects at College level.
As always, Dr Farrell cautions his readers that his conclusions are speculation, not proven facts. His work is painstakingly structured and extensively footnoted. While his conclusions are speculation, the data he presents; the basis for this speculation; is absolutely based on demonstrable evidence.
This one is an easier read than the pyramid books or the nazi weapon series.
With that said it isn't exactly a casual reading experience and I wouldn't read this prior to the Banksters of/from Babylon book.
All in all, one of Farrell's better efforts for sure!
