“Civilization is in a race between education and catastrophe.
Let us learn the truth and spread it as far and wide as our circumstances allow. For the truth is the greatest weapon we have.”
This website flowed on from a series of emails sent to family and friends during my megalithic expeditions. The emails told the tales of my exploration into the jungles, mountains and oceans searching for artefacts of a lost civilisation and unpacking the knowledge of remote cultures, whose memories echo this forgotten era.
They were good times; dehydration and hypothermia, meteor crater rituals, cocaine traders, Amazon witches and discoveries. There was so much yet to be discovered, so much unknown.
Megalithology is the manifestation of my desire to see the mysteries of the world and share with likeminded souls. What a pastime to have, travel to remote destinations with other enthusiast and investigate life’s oldest secrets.
In my early days of travel, it was my experience that almost all guides information and mainstream media explanations for ancient megalithic sites were inherently and demonstrably flawed. Possibly due to the theories being devised by academics with no worldly experience. A few days on the tools at a construction site or in a quarry might do them well in understanding the moving and shaping of heavy objects. A little trigonometry by hand might set them straight on angular accuracy. I felt as a Spatial Scientist, Registered Surveyor and serial antiauthoritarian antagonist, I might have something to offer. Perhaps uncover a link to an ancient past.
Many years ago, I came across a quote by Galileo Galilei,
"But of all other stupendous inventions, what sublimity of mind must have been his who conceived how to communicate his most secret thoughts to any other person, though very far distant either in time or place? And with no greater difficulty than the various arrangement of two dozen little signs upon paper? Let this be the seal of all the admirable inventions of man."
Galileo, in short, is referring to the Zodiac as the great invention that symbolises 'all the admirable inventions of man'.
It is unfortunate that what Galileo understood about the Zodiac is largely lost to modern education. Today the Zodiac is little more than a soothsayer’s birth date nursery rhyme, where once it drew the greatest minds of a thousand years to ponder on its logical conclusion. Whoever invented the Zodiac understood precession and embedded it into our symbolism, myths and religions in every corner of the earth. Whoever measured precession understood advanced math, or optics or both. Whoever embedded it into our symbolism, myth and religion circumnavigated the earth thousands of years into ‘prehistory’.
How, why, who?
From the moment I read that quote, I realised something was wrong. With our explanation of human history and evolution, with the cultural diffusion hypotheses, with ancient technology, with the evidence admittedly kept in secret from the public that is not congruent with orthodox history. As I traveled I realised many other people had the same feeling, perhaps, as I had found myself, unable to articulate it well. But the feeling is there. Something is very wrong.
That ancient civilisation that predated our own, possibly by tens of thousands of years, may be little more than a pile of rocks and ancient mythology. But it is all the evidence I have to the mystery of the ages.
