All the evidence either way is debatable. I really enjoy the Oxfordian theory. And I especially enjoy reading about de Vere. He was a genius.

Rutherford's sagas are epic and long. One of my favorite aspects of his stories is how genetic traits follow characters from beginning to end so that you see how someone who existed when the ice sheet covered northern Europe shares physical traits with someone today.

The Oxfordian theory is a lot more reasonable than a Mason/Rosicrucian one. That's all I'm saying.

As I understand it WS was probably Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford.

I love this guy, I can't help it. QuoteOne of the most gifted prose stylists of the 20th century, Will Durant viewed history not as a dreary succession of impersonal dates and reigns, but as taking place through human beings who loved, fought, dreamed and achieved.

Has anyone had the pleasure of reading Will &Ariel Durant's "The Story of Civilization"? Tremendous in scope it is essentially Durant's opus. 11 volumes of bygone bliss: 1 Our Oriental Heritage 2 The Life of Greece 3 Ceaser and Christ 4 The Age of Faith 5 The Renaissance 6 The Reformation 7 The Age of Reason Begins 8 The Age of Louis XIV 9 The Age of Voltaire 10 Rousseau and Revo

Great explanation, I really like the phase-lock concept as you present it. That is one of my favorite things about this book, for me it is truly something new and original. Especially the way the Neanderthals and the pre-historic moderns are depicted. I don't know of anyone who has described people in an epoch that ancient without the typically brutish cave-man shtick, or an absurdly high an

When I was younger and had countless hours to do so I took the time to conquer that massive work. It was a lot of fun but it took forever. Part 1 The Central and Super-universes is an amazing description of countless worlds and beings. It is unbelievably complicated and a true test of an individuals ability to focus, IMO. I consider the exploration of that book to be a true exercise in con

As you said in the Why fiction? Why Now? thread releasing yourself from the referencing and citing must be exhilarating. Would you consider this project a "stream of consciousness"?

That's to bad, not to downplay your experience of course. But I came away from that ending expecting something more along the lines of Ria's first experience with the little teachers. Maybe some leprechauns coming out of secret doors in the stones or miniature pink elephants and fairytale creatures with ultra high pitched, barely audible voices. I don't know, that's what I thought might hap

I was, and many others I'm sure, very surprised when I heard that you would be writing a novel.(here) Further revelations confirmed that it was going to be a fantasy/adventure sort of book. I didn't think about this at the time but one of the things about your non-fiction works that really drew me in was the element of adventure that is infused into all of the books that you have written.

If you haven't read any of them I would recommend obtaining The Sign and the Seal and reading it first. From the readers point of view GH's big adventures kind of start with that book.

So Leoni is always in a hurry to get back to Ria. Is there a problem jumping to specific points in time? Are the two separate linear timelines at their current intersection in the totality occurring simultaneously? Is that why there is always an urgent need for Leoni to travel, as time passes now will time pass then as well? I think this point may have been covered in one of the "Lan

I'm not finished yet so I don't know a lot, and I don't want to say too much. This isn't much of a spoiler, if you aren't reading the book yet this will probably be more confusing than anything and hopefully a little enticing. First, I am really enjoying this book. I think that anyone who has been reading Mr. Hancock's books for years will agree that finding out he was writing a fiction was

There is a lot to be said about how comforting spirituality can be for those who are dying. Living a good life in fear of what happens after you die is a superstition that will always be with humans but it is, as has been said a million times before, a matter of belief. Deeply spiritual lives are not compatible with every human mind. So please don't think that 'religion-free' is a bad thing.

Several people already have the book and I'm jealous. Due to overseas shipping I should be receiving my copy on or about 4/8. So, is there a 'spoiler alert' policy?

Quotebut if any are found I doubt he would have put them there consciously. I guess that's the big mystery. The way I see it, individuals either look for underlying patterns or they don't. One who looks for such patterns is one of two things, intuitive or deluded. I know that I try to see the hidden meaning behind 'things', so I just hope I am not deluded. However, if I am intuitive I have t

I have thought about writing on the topic, but I work to much at the moment. You mentioned that I should look into architectural works that coincide with the works of literature, interestingly Wilson wrote another book in which Joyce and Albert Einstein were pub-buddies and they were both trying to come up with a masterpiece in their respective fields. Aleister Crowley came around and gave ever

This just occurred to me. I read the book Coincidance by Robert Anton Wilson and it may hold some significance. In Coincidance much of the book is devoted to James Joyce's Finnegans Wake. Wilson describes how synchronicity is embedded in literature, and especially through Finnegans Wake. So James Joyce's opus may fit into this discussion, although I'm not sure that sacred geometry and synchro

Certainly I have heard of de Lubicz, and I will look into Sansonese but these are works that discuss the use of sacred geometry and where it pops up throughout history. What I want to know is, are there any written works that utilize sacred geometry through their composition? Are there books that follow a "sacred patter" like Paris as described in Talisman, or Chartres cathedral? A
