Dr. Robert Schoch, PhD
Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., is well known for his studies of ancient pyramids and megalithic structures across the globe. Since 1990, Schoch has been examining the accomplishments of ancient cultures, particularly as recorded in their stone monuments. He is renowned for his work on re-dating the Great Sphinx. Based on his geological studies, he has determined that the Sphinx’s origins date prior to dynastic times. He has also focused his attention on the Great Pyramid and various other temples and tombs in Egypt, as well as studying similar structures around the world. Most recently he has been carrying out research on ancient structures in Peru.
Dr. Schoch is an author and coauthor of both technical and popular books, including the trilogy with R. A. McNally: Voices of the Rocks: A Scientist looks at Catastrophes and Ancient Civilizations, Voyages of the Pyramid Builders: The True Origins of the Pyramids from Lost Egypt to Ancient America, and Pyramid Quest: Secrets of the Great Pyramid and the Dawn of Civilization. Schoch is a coauthor of the textbook Environmental Science: Systems and Solutions. Dr. Schoch’s most recent book publication is The Parapsychology Revolution: A Concise Anthology of Paranormal and Psychical Research (compilation and commentary by Robert M. Schoch and Logan Yonavjak). His books have been translated into numerous languages and distributed around the world. Dr. Schoch has appeared on many television and radio programs, and is featured in the documentary The Mystery of the Sphinx (originally aired on NBC and rebroadcast many times since). Schoch has lectured widely on geology, ancient cultures, pyramids, and the age of the Great Sphinx, and his research has helped spur renewed attention to the interrelationships between geological and astronomical phenomena, natural catastrophes, and the early history of civilization. Among other subjects, Dr. Schoch is currently pursuing research on the unusual characteristics, and possible capabilities, of ancient and traditional cultures from a psychical studies standpoint.
A full-time faculty member at Boston University’s College of General Studies since 1984, Schoch completed his graduate work at Yale University, earning a Ph.D. (1983) in geology and geophysics. His personal website address is: www.RobertSchoch.com
CPAK 2008 Topic: The Human and Cosmic Psyche
There is growing recognition of, and solid scientific evidence for, anomalous mental capabilities and phenomena such as telepathy (direct mind-to-mind information transfer) and higher levels of consciousness. Furthermore, such phenomena show correlations with environmental factors, for example the geomagnetic field of Earth, Local Sidereal Time, and other subtle energies. The concepts of precessional ages and a cycle of descent from a Golden Age are found in many cultures. Could there be a genuine basis for such traditions? Might mental capacities and capabilities alter over the course of time due to external influences on our planet? Were ancient temples and ritual sites used to focus energies and enhance anomalous mental capabilities? These and related subjects will be explored in the presentation by Robert Schoch.
