No doubt the loyalist family took the choicest land for their "estate", which would stand to reason why the indigenous population would have created a settlement (city) there in the past.

Who were they? When did they live? Where did they come from? Does it even matter?

In northeast America historians categorize all ancient indigenous inhabitants as "hunter gatherers", however this is actually a misnomer. In areas where land and water travel corridors converged, like the Hudson River valley, offering ready access to sustainable resources, permanent habitation centers were established. Population centers arose in these areas, which provided for spiritu

David, I recall the the guy (officer?) at West Point who ran the climbing program was named Ned. I can picture him clearly, a short, stout guy who was at the Gunks every weekend with a group of fresh faced cadets. You must have known or known of him. Thanks for the links and info to follow up on. Glenn

My research is focused on the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountain region of upstate New York. It contends that some of the man made stone work found in the woods was created by the first inhabitants to populate the region. The question is;when was that? 10, 15, 20 thousand years ago. The date keeps getting pushed back further by experts, who can't really agree. What evidence is out there that

Thanks for the kind and interesting comments. This part of the country seems to leave its mark on people, and Visa versa. I know Gardnier well and spent many years, starting in '86, climbing at the "Gunks", where from the cliffs we'd see groups of the skydivers from "The Ranch" slowly floating down from the sky on weekends. Climbed also at West Point, right down on the ri

According to the "experts", weather in northeast America was not conducive for performing observational astronomy in ancient times, so it didn't happen. Yet in Great Britain and northwest Europe, where the activity was widespread, the weather is just as problematic, yet the practice is recognized and accepted by academics and historians. So, why the double standard between experts in ea

The archaeological evidence is admittedly sparse. Unless the site is threatened in some way, it's not likely an archaeological excavation or survey would be conducted. It's true these sites defy classification because artifacts are not associated with them and the stone constructions are not considered artifacts themselves. Another issue is that, if these are spiritual sites, archaeologists seem

Are there any good reasons why ancient indigenous populations in northeast America would not have practiced observational astronomy, as in other regions of the Americas?

Thanks Graham, I cant believe it's been a year since you and Santha were here in the Catskills, watching the leaves turn and crunching around in the woods. Please feel free to weigh in if the discussion gets interesting.

The most ancient symbol of the serpent and its relationship in mythology to the 'tree of life', has been present in culture for thousands of years prior to the Christian Era. From ancient China, India, SE Asia, Persia (the Middle East), Greece and Norse culture and mythology, the serpent has been assigned to the circumpolar constellation Draco (the dragon, serpent or snake) in the northern hemisp

David's research, in part, confirms the first thesis mentioned in the abstract attached; that the figures are labels for the lines. In fact the different animal, bird, fish, insect and plant symbols do appear to be labels or symbolic representations for the names of the aquifers the lines map out. For example the Spider Aquifer or the Monkey Aquifer would be found running under ground beneath the

Hi All, Glenn Kreisberg here providing an update on the publication of the edited anthology The Search for Lost Knowledge - A Graham Hancock Alternative Science and History Reader. Due to delays in the publication by the original publisher caused by recent economic conditions, a new publisher, Inner Traditions, has given the project a new home and expects to publish the work in mid 2010.

I received an email recently from physicist John Dering referring to a new type of binary star system. Apparently research has been conducted by Russian scientists showing EM relationships between stars many light years apart; in some cases tens or hundreds of light years apart! Has anyone heard anything about this? What do we call two stars that may be many light years apart but are in

Greg, Glenn Kreisberg here. This reminds me of research I heard about from particle physicist John Dering at According to John, Russian astronomers are working on identifying a new type of binary; what are known as electromagnetic binaries. These stars have similar EM properties and though they may be located 10s, 100s or even 1000s of light years apart seem to set up connections through esta

Hi Walter... If our day/night cycle is a true microcosm of the greater precessional /yuga cycle then this implies within each of these cycles exists both periods of "consciousness"(awake) and "unconsciousness"(asleep). It would also seem to imply that the time we spends awake in the cycle is greater than the time we spend alseep. Of course we have to wonder, if like waking f

I like Brain Green's quantum (string?) take on all this...That within all the possible dimention that may exist, probability play an unlikely but crucial roll in what is possible within all that exists...Hey, how's that for a definition of the nature of knowledge...All that is possible within all that exists.

Ed W wrote: "Yes I do think the difference between "what life is" and "what life means" is based on the intricacies of consciousness and the 'objective' life we live in the context of a subjective universe, where the universe includes everything physical as well as non-physical." I would also have to disagree with this, and of course it is all a matter of perspecti

Also...when considering the nature of knowledge it's always good to keep in mind the function of the Em spectrum. I consider the EM spectum the single common denominator of the "natural " world, both seen and unseen. Perhaps one can think of the entire EM spectrum as the medium on which all of existance (and knowledge) is "recorded". It seems everything, both animate and in

I believe as our existence takes place in both the particle or material realm and the wave form realm or spiritual realm and our comprehension of knowledge is divided between these as well. While experiencing particle form existence our grasp of knowledge is limited by our physical senses. So much of "knowable" knowledge takes place outside of what we're capable of "sensing"

Wow!! After reading this entire thread, beginning to end, and not wanting to take sides, I can't help feel horakhty, for no good reason, is being asked to self censor so as to keep from "pushing the moderators buttons" as JAW put it. I see no disrespect in horakhty's posts, some sarcasm and humor yes…but no disrespect. There's nothing wrong with thinking out loud about your prospect
