In this book, you will find an attempt to categorize this history of early ancient civilizations into three categories related to the partial or complete destruction of ancient civilization dating from 50,000 b.c., 30,000 b.c., and 10,500 b.c. According this book, we are living in the fourth time period dating from around 10,500 b.c. to the present. Explanations of the various types of people (and/or beings) are given. The "Dead Sea Scrolls" and even the "Bible" also support these descriptions to some degree.
If you are a hard-core evolutionist or creationist, this book will provide some support for both but you will quickly realize that a lot of what is taught in school, is not necessarily supported by recent archeological findings. You will also discover that we are all on a spiritual journey, possibly of our own choosing. The most interesting dilemma in the research in Egypt is that there seems to be an overwhelming amount of evidence that a "Hall of Records" that contains information about the architects of the Egyptian Pyramids, is buried under the Sphinx or nearby in a Pyramid "of it's own".
Why don't we go over there and dig up the records? Cayce's claim is that these things cannot happen until the right time or until we are ready for the "next evolution of mankind." If in fact these records exist, we would have to re-write history and it would probably have a radical affect on our society, both scientifically and spiritually. This book also paints a picture of our own future that is bleak (although I found this particular chapter to be a little speculative for my tastes.) The Afterward is good but you will want to read other books that support these writings since they are vague and only summarized.
Lastly, I have begun to really doubt the accuracy of Carbon-14 dating, not just from this book but from other archeological books I've read that draw conclusions based solely on dating research. The tests used to date the Pyramids, place the dates of the Pyramids 200 years before Kafu, the assumed builder of the Pyramids. Unfortunately, it also doesn't support the dates provided by Cayce either. The Carbon-14 dates really don't make much sense, especially if you consider that there are watermarks around the neck of the Sphinx, which can only be traced to the period between 8000 and 5000 b.c. The fact is, we still have a great deal to learn about the Pyramids and that the most incredible archeological finds, are still to be had right in Giza. Hopefully there is more to come.
There are compelling scientific arguments against a mid-ocean continent 50,000 years ago containing an advanced technological civilization. This makes Cayce more difficult to believe than is acknowledged here. But there are real reasons to take Cayce seriously, both metaphsical and scientific. One of Cayce's claims to fame is his statements that the Sphinx and the largest pyramid at Giza are much older than archeologists believe, and that there is now---some 70 years later--geologic and astronomical evidence to support these claims for an age of 12,400 years (though these claims are vociferously denied by Egyptologists).
An excellent book as a follow up to this one, exploring this geologic and astronomical (as well as common sense) evidence that support Cayce's claims for a vast age for some Egyptian monuments is "The Message of the Sphinx" by Hancock and Bauval. THAT book, about the ancient Egyptians, which gives Cayce credibility, is five stars.
