Paradise Rediscovered: The Roots of Civilisation Reviews
I am the author.Paradise Rediscovered. Were Europe's first farmers ruled by an elite aristocracy who passed themselves off as "gods", commanding secret knowledge that included ambrosia that extended their life spans?My first book published by Glass House Books, Brisbane appears as two volumes in paperback, or a single eBook.This book asks and methodically answers confronting questions using a multidisciplinary approach. While I can't guarantee that all the answers proposed are right, they are all based upon reasonable arguments. The work explores the hypothesis that the flood accounts of Middle-Eastern preantiquity represent textual transmissions from a lost high culture at the dawn of civilisation: 3000 years prior to Mesopotamia. It proposes that a confrontation between an advanced farming elite and one of the Neolithic peoples they encountered near the Black Sea led to domination of the mass of Europe's early farmers by an elite of Indo-European speaking warriors and priests. They used their proprietary knowledge of sciences such as agriculture, astronomy, ceramics, the wheel, early symbolic writing and other Neolithic technologies to pass themselves off to the subordinate masses as gods. And it is as gods that they have been remembered, in the mythologies of Sumeria, the Hebrews, Egypt, and the descendants of the Indo-European speakers of the heartland of the mother goddess-worshipping Danube Civilisation of Europe's first farmers (from 6000 BC), where cultural innovations of civilisation such as metallurgy, the plough, and writing are first documented. Their opponents were another class of gods who occupied a religious centre at the pre-flood Bosporus sill (6400 BC), the present site of Istanbul. That was the site of Atlantis, where contemporary with the flood, a god-king character called “The Ancient of Days” was involved in an ideological conflict with Indo-European "fallen angels" who took the secret knowledge of the holy elect of Paradise and sacrilegiously shared it with the "people of the land" to form the first farming communities in Europe. In so doing they broke vows of chastity, having sex with the (presumably Greek) women of the land. These are the events surrounding the biblical flood of the Black Sea, as recounted in the “Book of Enoch”, which also describes a Neolithic stone circle "observatory" that was used as a calendar to track dates associated with the agricultural cycle, time-stamping the passage to the Neolithic. That circular centre was Atlantis, which was flooded and faded from prominence after the Black Sea flood, and was forgotten by all but the priests of Egypt, who kept the flame of knowledge alive for millennia before recounting the tale to the Greek Solon in 589 B.C., just before Egypt was sacked by Babylon. That extinguished the flame in Egypt, but Solon passed the story to his friend Critias, who passed it to his grandson Critias, who passed it to Socrates, the mentor of Plato, the father of Philosophy. Plato finally published the account and preserved it in his "Critias" and "Timaeus" (the Atlantis texts). The historical veracity of the Egyptian Priest’s account is verified by the previously unrecognised description of the myth of Phaeton as an account of the Cygnus Loop supernova (recognised for the first time here). Methodically assigning similar historical veracity to the mythemic systems inherited from that time allows the conjectural reconstruction otherwise inaccessible events."Paradise Rediscovered" assembles many jigsaw pieces into a discernible yet incomplete reconstruction, projected back onto its distant origins to reveal a shadowy but recognisable image of that Neolithic society. Are all of its conclusions or propositions correct? Perhaps not according to much conventional wisdom, but it's probably worthwhile having a look and deciding for yourself. As my Amazon book description says "I hope that the way this provocative perspective on preantiquity tickles your intellectual fantasy will be well worth the read, that you both enjoy and benefit from this work, and yet first and foremost that it makes you reconsider modern society. Thank you."For more information see the links from publisher's dedicated web page: http://ipoz.biz/Titles/PR.htm.Kind regards.Mike Cahill
