For the first 90 minutes of this episode of THE Q.PSIENCE PROJECT, researcher LAIRD SCRANTON revisits the show to reveal more hidden histories - this time through his books, Decoding Maori Cosmology: The Ancient Origins of New Zealand’s Indigenous Culture, and The Mystery of Skara Brae: Neolithic Scotland and the Origins of Ancient Egypt.
In The Mystery of Skara Brae: Neolithic Scotland and the Origins of Ancient Egypt, Laird reveals the striking similarities between Skara Brae, a Neolithic farming village on Orkney Island, and the traditions of pre-dynastic ancient Egypt as preserved by the Dogon people of Mali - also examining the similarities between Skara Brae and Gobekli Tepe, including how Skara Brae may have been a secondary center of learning for the ancient world.
Laird's most recent book, Decoding Maori Cosmology: The Ancient Origins of New Zealand’s Indigenous Culture, reveals Maori culture as centuries older than generally accepted, and how the same cosmological concepts and linguistic roots that began at Gobekli Tepe are also evident in Maori cosmology and language, with similarities to Dogon and Egyptian languages and biblical and Hindu traditions.
ABOUT LAIRD SCRANTON. Laird is an independent researcher of ancient cosmology and language whose studies in comparative cosmology have served to help synchronize aspects of ancient African, Egyptian, Vedic, Chinese, Polynesian and other world cosmologies, and have led to an alternate approach to reading Egyptian hieroglyphic words. Laird became interested in Dogon mythology and symbolism in the early 1990s, and has studied ancient myth, language, and cosmology since 1997. He appears in John Anthony West’s Magical Egypt DVD series, and has been a lecturer at Colgate University. His degree is in English from Vassar College.
For the last 30 minutes, from 7:30-8pm E | 4:30-5pm P, former NASA physicist, and pioneering consciousness researcher TOM CAMPBELL will be stopping by THE Q. to catch Jill & her listeners up on his exciting series of 17 quantum mechanics experiments which might show us once and for all that we are living in a virtual reality.
