Interesting topic choice as it is a choice of topic that everyone can engage with and have an opinion on. I first came to the GHMB after reading Fingerprints of the Gods. The study of history of any kind is a hobby for me, but the following topics which are quite broad and fairly have piqued my interest:
(a) mythology - in particular in Fingerprints, Graham discusses at length similarity in myth and legends of different cultures. Dovetailing into myth is the need for pre-literate humans to need to remember key facts which is where I have enjoyed Lynne Kelly's work in The Memory Code;
(b) astronomy - an increasing knowledge of astronomy and the keeping of various types of astronomical records seems to be a key factor in the development of calendars, agriculture and other sciences. As such, I am curious about the astronomical knowledge of our ancestors;
(c) technological advancement - by this I don't mean ancient people having supercomputers or spacecraft but rather the use of more advance tools or ideas than are accepted.
Arising out of these interests, I have developed several alternative hypotheses - these serve to drive me forward to learn more about the particular topic. I've been pretty open sharing them on this board, including:
Speculation on Ancient Egyptian knowledge of the Speed of Light led med to research the much more mainstream study of opticsAncient Study of Optics as well as ancient Egyptian knowledge of mathematics, in particular focusing on knowledge of Pi or similar: [grahamhancock.com]
One of your posts on Djedi the Magician of the Westcar papyrus inspired me research a possibility that the story is mythological in nature, resulting in two seperate but intertwined hypotheses related to the height of the Great Pyramid and Potential matches for constellations
These are all "work in progress" so my views may change as I delve into the topics further which may take some time as this is a hobby.
