A wonderful, stimulating, thought provoking new - or very old - approach to the greatest problems of human history. --Graham Hancock, Author, Fingerprints of the Gods
From the Publisher
If you liked Jarred Diamonds Pulitzer Prize Winner Guns, Germs and Steel, or his follow-up book, Collapse, but found something missing, you will love Lost Star of Myth and Time. Diamond showed us that environment plays an important role in the success or failure of regional culture but he did not explain the macro trends. Walter Cruttenden, with an archaeo-astronomy background, shows us it is not just mans place on Earth that matters; it is Earths place in space, and the myriad stellar influences that affect it, that provides the macro environment for life and consciousness itself.
Lost Star is a fast-paced historical detective story that is richly illustrated to make archaeological and astronomical discoveries easy to understand. It is Cruttendens position with the Binary Research Institute and his eclectic knowledge of ancient history and cutting-edge science that has enabled him to make the theory of the precession of the equinox sound like a non-fiction thriller. He takes history apart then shows how the Sun, carrying the Earth around another star, would have profound implications for mankind. It is insightful, believable and more than certain to ruffle a few feathers with old traditionalists. This book is a must read for anyone interested in history, astronomy, subtle energy physics or those that just want to know where we came from and where were going.

In this day and age (so far), much of Science is hide-bound by academic vetting of new ideas and research, much as the medieval Church sat in judgement of the new, and to them unorthodox, ideas of Copernicus and Galileo.
It is ironic that the best minds currently at work in various fields of inquiry are all more or less outside of Academia, not by choice but due to the "gate-keeping" that goes on in the various hard science professions. Archaeology in particular is very, very hide-bound. But so is Astronomy. Where you get the really open-minded scholars is in physics.
Cruttenden does not make any "great leaps" of logic, or take on faith various "claims" made by unscientific people. He is very conservative in his thinking without letting his conservatism prevent him from looking at anything that might better explain the world we see around us.
enlightening facts I had to, if only to let things sink in for a while.
Well argued and persuasive, but he is careful to identify possible alternatives, and give
them due consideration.
The central two chapters explain his main thesis: That the "earth wobble" theory of precession
has too many holes to stand up, and that the "binary star" theory makes sense.
Surrounding those chapters, he delves into a wide variety of fields, all of which touch on his central thesis,
and which make even more sense in light of it.
If the measure of a theory lies in its explanatory power, then Cruttenden's work is right up there with
Newton, Galileo, and Copernicus.
Really well done.
Being keen on the teachings of Sri Yukteswar, part of which LOST STAR draws on, I was enthralled to hear someone had put together a book proposing among other things, two vitally important ideas for our modern Age. Firstly, our solar system is a binary star system, and secondly we crossed into the energies of the Dwapara Yuga in 1700 C.E. This is important knowledge and context information to how we `perceive' our relationships to each other, and the consciousness of the Earth.
The apparent ease within which Cruttenden presents all the following information and more, belies an advanced mastery of authorship - Gaia, the Great Year or precession of the equinox, the Vedic knowledge of the time periods of the Yugas, the Earth's historic link to the Sirius Star systems, the amazing construction of Coral Castle in Florida, and the electrical nature of our solar system generated by our binary star system, fascinate many people. The work by Gregg Braden (The Isaiah Effect), Drunvalo Melchezidek (Flower of Life), Dr. Bruce Lipton (The Biology of Belief), and Ervin Laszlo plus many other author's to numerous to list here, adds momentum and coherence to the understanding that we are capable of creating any reality we choose, plus our minds are now more readily able to consciously perceive subtle or etheric energy, and our interconnectedness to all of life.
