Wisdom Books: The Ascent of Humanity by Charles Eisenstein

the_ascent_of_humanity

Charles Eisenstein explores the history and potential future of civilization, tracing the converging crises of our age to the illusion of the separate self. In this landmark book, Eisenstein explains how a disconnection from the natural world and one another is built into the foundations of civilization: into science, religion, money, technology, medicine, and education as we know them. As a result, each of these institutions faces a grave and growing crisis, fueling our near-pathological pursuit of technological fixes even as we push our planet to the brink of collapse.

Fortunately, an Age of Reunion is emerging out of the birth pangs of an earth in crisis. As our old constructs of self and world dissolve in crisis, we are entering a new narrative of interbeing, a more expansive sense of self, and a more ecological relationship to nature. Our darkest hour bears the possibility of a more beautiful world—not through the extension of millennia-old methods of management and control but by fundamentally reimagining ourselves and our systems. Breathtaking in its scope and intelligence, The Ascent of Humanity is a remarkable book showing what it truly means to be human.

ubuntu-large

Michael Tellinger is a scientist, explorer and internationally acclaimed author who has become an authority on the origins of humankind and the vanished civilisations of southern Africa. Scholars have told us that the first civilisation on Earth emerged in a land called Sumer some 6000 years ago. New archaeological and scientific discoveries made by Michael Tellinger, and a team of leading scientists, show that the Sumerians and even the Egyptians inherited all their knowledge from an earlier civilization that lived at the southern tip of Africa more than 200,000 years ago… mining gold. Michael Tellinger presents just some of the startling scientific evidence that led to his groundbreaking discoveries and conclusions. He further suggests how we can learn from those early humans in our search for peace and a harmonious, unified world, with abundance for all.

Enlightening Documentaries: Magical Egypt – Cosmology Part 8 of 8

A comparison of ancient and modern models of the structure of the universe reveal unexpected similarities.

As our most recent scientific understanding is bringing the subatomic realms into ever clearer focus, the strange world of quantum mechanics and string theory are finding a remarkably consistent echo in the cosmology, or creation myth, of the ancient Egyptians.

Could there be complex scientific notation hidden in ancient hieroglyphics? Author/researcher Laird Scranton demonstrates an unexplainable accurate description of subatomic structure, quantum physics, cellular biology and even string theory, hidden in ancient accounts of the formation of the universe.

If Scranton’s discovery proves true, it may be the most important breakthrough in Egyptology since the discovery of the Rosetta stone.

Enlightening Documentaries: Magical Egypt – Illumination Part 7 of 8

Twice a year, on the anniversary of the Ramses’ birth and coronation day, the rising sun penetrates the temple to illuminate the four gods of creation situated at it’s very core.

As we witness this rare spectacle, we gain an understanding of the ancient temple, not just as a place of worship, but as an essential mechanism of the ancient magical practices.

West is joined by bestselling author/researcher Robert Bauval at the temple of Abu Simbel. We look at the temple, statuary and heiroglyphs as examples of talismanic technology.

Lon Milo Duqette discusses modern applications of talismanic technology.

Enlightening Documentaries: Magical Egypt – Legacy Part 6 of 8

The ancient Arabic name for Egypt was “Khemet”, or “The Black Land”. The western continuation of the Egyptian magical arts was called “Al-Khemet”, meaning “from the Black Land”.

The cradle of civilization is also the ancestral home of a high science of magic. We explore the many modern incarnations of the ancient science of perfection and the transformation of the “materia prima” of the Alchemists.

From Alchemy to Tarot, and in the many modern esoteric and mystical societies existing today, we explore the hidden thread that connects modern and ancient magic – The occult idea that consciousness is the materia prima. The coal that turns into a diamond. The lead that becomes gold.
