Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients by David Hatcher Childress. According to early Sanskrit texts the ancients had several types of airships called vimanas. Like aircraft of today, vimanas were used to fly through the air from city to city; to conduct aerial surveys of uncharted lands and as delivery vehicles for awesome weapons. Packed with photos and diagrams, Vimana consults ancient texts and modern stories to present astonishing evidence that aircraft, similar to the ones we use today, were used thousands of years ago in India, Sumeria, China and other countries.
Sacred Number and the Lords of Time: The Stone Age Invention of Science and Religion by Richard Heath. Our Stone Age ancestors discovered that the geometry of the Earth provided a sacred connection between human experience and the spiritual worlds. By recovering the megalithic secrets of space and time, carefully preserved in megalithic stone structures, Heath tells an untold story of four megalithic ages. Examining Earth’s harmonic relevance to the Universe as a whole, he shows how we can recognize the long-forgotten foundations of our own civilization and revive the sacred teaching of these four great ages.
