Ancient cultures around the world believed that consciousness and history move in a vast cycle of time with alternating Dark and Golden Ages – Plato called it the Great Year. Today we know it as one “precession of the equinox,” an obscure astronomical motion, and consider the Golden Age to be just a myth.
But are we correct? An increasing amount of evidence suggests that long before the Dark Ages mankind had a deep understanding of astronomy, mathematics, holistic healing, and a profound ability to live in tune with nature. Join us as we discover the wisdom of the ancients.
Most history books still teach that about 5000 years ago mankind was a primitive hunter-gatherer incapable of complex thought. Under this paradigm megalithic structures found all over the world were built for sacrificial purposes, to deify a ruler, or to help a society ignorant of the seasons know when to plant its crops. Mankind was thought to be a brutish sort stuck in survival mode, incapable of little more than grunting and groaning. This myopic view is reinforced by misapplied evolutionary theory that requires that anything that came before us must be more primitive.
