Alan Alford is an independent researcher and author, who is increasingly being recognised as the world’s leading authority on ancient mythology, mysticism and the esoteric meaning of ancient and modern religions. His interests also encompass ancient wisdom, archaeological anomalies, the origins of Homo sapiens, and the nature of consciousness.
Since the mid-1980s, Alan Alford has been on a quest for the truth of human existence, seeking answers to the eternal questions of who we are and where we come from. Inspired, in the first instance, by the controversial theories of Erich von Daniken and Zecharia Sitchin, Alford has focused his research on the enigmatic ‘gods’ of ancient mythology, pursuing his quest with one single-minded objective – to decode the secrets of the gods and thereby understand who or what these gods actually were.
One of the most notable features of Alan Alford’s quest has been his willingness to challenge his own preconceptions, as well as those of others. In 1998, he stunned readers of his first book ‘Gods of the New Millennium’ by issuing a retraction of his ‘flesh and blood gods’ theory in his sequel ‘The Phoenix Solution’, in which he argued that the Egyptian gods personified the cataclysmic powers of creation. Alford’s arguments were indeed so powerful that Zecharia Sitchin, the world’s leading ancient astronaut theorist, threatened him with a 50 million dollar lawsuit on the grounds that his comments discredited his (Sitchin’s) theories and destroyed his reputation.

Anthony Bright-Paul has rendered real service in updating and reissuing his book, "My Stairway to Subud," first published in 1965. "Stairway" brings vividly to life the author's personal journey through the Vedanta and the Gurdjieff "Work," a path that in 1957 finally led him to embrace Subud, a spiritual movement then newly arrived in the West. Anthony Bright-Paul, still only in his twenties at the time, had already studied the Gurdjieff system for some half dozen years under the direction of J.G. Bennett, and was unaware that earlier that year his mentor had secretly received a direct contact with the latihan kejiwaan (training of the soul) from Hussein Rofe, himself a pupil of the Indonesian Master, Pak Subuh, soon to be widely known around the world simply as "Bapak." Typical of the honesty which Anthony brings to his book is his acknowledgement of the scepticism and resistance with which he first responded to the proposed transition from the Gurdjieff Work to the apparent simplicity and ease of the surrender to the Will of God, advocated by Muhammad Subuh. All his doubts were in due course swept away by his experience of "the great force which rained down in and around me," which left him "feeling elated yet detached and deliriously happy."
Kyle Bennett is an independent researcher, with BSc in Geography and MSc in Real Estate Management. He works as a journalist by profession, specializing in commercial property and economics. He lives in London.

"Polar Wandering and the Cycle of Ages"
coming in July 2011
“Without in the slightest degree undervaluing other causes which may lead to climatal changes, I think that possibly we may have here a vera causa such as would account for extreme variations from a Tropical to an Arctic temperature at the same spot, in a simpler and more satisfactory manner than any other hypothesis.”
And it is now known – as modern exploration has discovered – that the Arctic flipped between a glacial and almost tropical climate a number of times during the Eocene, as well as later on. So what does that suggest?? Evans was even more confident that his theory was correct when discussing the remains of tropical plants found in the Arctic:
“The former existence of cold in what are now warm latitudes might, and probably did in part, arise from other causes than a change in the axis of rotation, but no other hypothesis can well account for the existence of traces of an almost tropical vegetation within the Arctic circle…
…they seem to afford conclusive evidence of a change in the position of the pole since the period at which they grew, as such vegetation must be considered impossible in so high a latitude”.
This is the conclusion that Hapgood came to, and which I confirm in my upcoming book, Polar Wandering and the Cycle of Ages, where I look at how modern research has more than supported the hypothesis of rapid polar wandering (should be available to buy from July 2011 - please visit my blog for details).
Ron O. Cook
He is a former university administrator, communications consultant, journalist, graphic designer, and award-winning illustrator.
Ron O. Cook has done hundreds if not thousands of paintings since he was a youth. He has painted almost every theme that the great masters ever tried and has taught such techniques to many of his students. His works are hung and published all over the United States, and that is just a tiny slice of his talents. He is an Advertising, Marketing and Communications Consultant to large concerns.
Cook, who signs his drawings and paintings as "Von Koch" after his ancestors, has created computer graphics, virtual realities, paintings, illustrations, drawings and portraits over a period of many years. His patrons are governors, congressmen, CEOs and many, many good friends. His first commission was 32 major paintings in 1966 for a Houston Promoter. The non-objective paintings ranged from 5 X 12 feet to 3 X 6 feet in size. Thereafter, Cook's agent, J. Tom Martin (Houston Architect), helped place hundreds of paintings, drawings and prints in the surrounding Houston area for almost ten years.
Cook prides himself as a painter who can accomplish any and all techniques of applying media to a surface. He has painted numerous realistic portraits, non-objective abstracts, and graphic surrealistic representations all in the same studio setting--switching from one work to the other in seconds. Much of his recent work has involved utilization of computers to develop his visual concepts. He has done much of this with some of his e-books (The Enigmni), which are illustrated and many are in the process of becoming movie storyboards for future development. Cook has been a columnist, journalist, educator, and consultant. In general, he is a deep thinker searching everything for answers to the “heavy” questions hidden in Time/Space. R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, Einstein and Manly P. Hall are his favorite thinkers.
Today, he is moving toward new thoughts that relate to the very fabric of our existence. His new series of written and graphic works will stress the realms of meditation expressed visually and verbally. “Not that one is, but that whereby Is, is” — is the Creed and Crux of his life.
Other than the above, Cook loves his wife and family and enjoys the experience of awe in just being here.

Ralph Ellis is a an airline captain with a distinctly lateral, open-minded view on history and religion. He has written five books so far, which purport to explain every last facet of man's history. Under this new concept, the pyramids of Egypt become the central cathedral complex of the early Israelites, who were, in fact, the Hyksos Shepherd Kings of Lower Egypt.

John Neal is the author of "All Done with Mirrors", the book written in his sixtieth year as the result of his pure interest in history and archaeology.
Ancient buildings, monuments, standing stones and earthworks have always exerted a solemn fascination upon him and he was ever aware that they embodied something communicable within their mystery.
This communication was finally established through an understanding of the units of measurement that were enshrined in their proportions, they speak in numbers. The architects speak to us across the ages through this forgotten language, as clearly as though their voices were heard in their antique tongue.
Although the final solution proved to be utterly simple, the convoluted paths which had to be followed towards the resolution of the enigmas of metrology, defy description. Countless hours of calculation and comparisons over a period of some thirty years, finally yielded a priceless pearl that becomes brighter the more it is contemplated and handled. If the reader does not appreciate this, it is entirely due to the inexperience and the presentation of the author. I recommend that those who have difficulties with numbers resolve them and read on until they do understand.

Anthony Paul Perella
Anthony Paul Perella, author of the Metaparticle Theory concerning the origin and structure of matter, strikes one as taking physics and metaphysics seriously, but not so much himself. After 25 years developing the metaparticle worldview he says he can't decide between calling himself a "metaphysicist" and thereby affronting fifty thousand scientists, or a "metaphysician" and upsetting his doctor. He refrains from either in presenting here a specially written digest, math-free and diagrammed, emphasizing perennial mysteries of particle physics solved scientifically by evidence employing metaparticles. Someday, the author predicts, the absolute origin of such principles may come to be seen as both inevitable and highly rewarding to science. (See Section on Background of Theory and Author.)

The Open Cheops Committee was founded in 1997 to present and make public the case for the re-opening of the Great Pyramid of Cheops. We assert that the Great Pyramids were not built as tombs; that the entrance to Cheops lies outside the structure; that interior ramps were used in its construction; and that there are dozens, if not hundreds of un-opened halls, corridors, chambers, and rooms within the structure.
Born and raised in Provence, France, Dr. Turi rekindled and only exercises Nostradamus' 16th-Century Divine Astrology method. This formula does not reflect the modern astrology disciplines you may use, read, study, or practice. Realize that over 500 years ago the famous Prophet did not use a watch or any sophisticated computers. Thus, like the great Seer, he investigates outer space and the Universal Mind with his inborn spiritual telescope.

Ice age cycles explain climate changes when viewed from a model of oceans heating due to hot spots in the earth's core.
Humans cannot create global warming. Only 0.04% of the atmosphere is carbon dioxide; and oceans regulate it to the most minute degree. Hot spots in the earth's core are heating the oceans and causing global warming.
