The Lost Cycle Of Time
Over 30 ancient cultures tracked the stars to learn when the GODS will return.
It appears that all of these ancient peoples—and who knows how many others?—believed in a very different model of history than that which predominates our modern age of so-called rationality. Essentially, the difference is that in these ancient cosmologies, both human consciousness and the motion of history were viewed as cyclical rather than linear. These ancient cultural beliefs are very tied in with the precession of the equinox. It was widely believed that time moves in a great cycle corresponding to the precession of the equinox, and that within this cycle exists an alternating pattern of Dark Ages and Golden Ages. The philosopher Plato viewed this cycle as what he called the Great Year.
In our contemporary world, steeped in the Judeo-Christian tradition, this concept of a vast cycle—connected to the almost imperceptible, gradual precession of the equinox—is somewhat strange. However, in the pre-Christian world, it is quite clear that this idea was extremely common. It was certainly not viewed as fantasy, but as solid fact by a great number of cultures across the Earth.
