A ground-breaking exploration of a lost civilisation

Synopsis

Inspired by the revelation that the Sphinx had been weathered by water and not by wind-blown sand and was, therefore, thousands of years older than the oldest civilisation known to man, Colin Wilson sets out to explore the remote depths of history. The compelling argument of this bestselling book is that, thousands of years before Ancient Egypt and Greece held sway, there was a great civilisation whose ships travelled the world and who possessed some knowledge system that offered a unified view of the universe, alien to modern man. In this fascinating exploration of the world at a time when, according to Plato, the 'lost civilisation' of Atlantis was destroyed, the author makes a ground-breaking attempt to understand how these long-forgotten people's thought, felt and communicated on a universal plane.

My initial impression is that Wilson's main idea that people in the past used a different mode of thought is hardly a new one. Indeed he seems to be either unaware of this or is deliberably ignoring the significant contributions of others on modes of thought.
There are some significant "coincidences" that I've noticed in his text. For example, on page 25 he quotes the work of VandenBroeck and the importance of method and that he moved to Grassi to be close to Schwaller. The coincidence I noticed is the link to the work by Ernesto Grassi (see "Rhetoric as Philosophy: The Humanist Tradition"). I also see numerous other connections to the work of other authors; for example, Robert Fritz (see "The Path of Least Resistance"), Michael Polanyi (see "Personal Knowledge"), Jerome Bruner (see "On Knowing: Essays for the Left Hand"), David Bleich (see "Subjective Criticism"), Benjamin Whorf (see "Language, Thought and Reality"), John Eccles and Daniel Robinson (see "The Wonder of Being Human: Our Brain and Our Mind"), and Nick Herbert (see "Quantum Reality").

The great thing about Colin Wilson is that he has some unique ideas and a plethora of evidence to support them. The bad thing about him is that he's had these ideas for decades so one book tends to sound like the next with only the evidence changing. That being said I really enjoyed this book. It focusses on evidence that there was an advanced civilization before 9000 b.c. Another great thing about Colin is that he's a synthesist. He takes dozens of books and pulls them into his own work. Here, his main sources are Fingerprints of the Gods and Forbidden Archeology plus a dozen or so others. Why not read those instead of Wilson rehashing their ideas. Read them but use this book as a introduction to them. I gave this book 4 stars because I think Colin failed at his underlying point. Throughout the book he talks of this theoried ancient civilization having a different way of thinking, of communicating, than we do now and that this was the real reason he wrote the book. Although he touched on what that way of thinking was he never convinced me that it was true. I wanted to believe it but it never happened.

The central idea of this book is getting a lot of attention lately, such as in "Fingerprints of the gods": did a highly developped and sea-faring nation exist before the beginning of our history, and can we explain some of the ancient mysteries such as the pyramids, the Piri Reis-map, the architecture of the Maya and their predecessors, and even Atlantis? It sounds so far fetched, yet if you listen to the arguments of researchers and writers such as Wilson, it's hard to stay sceptical. Now I would read anything that Colin Wilson writes, and this book is fine. But since I read it after "Fingerprints..." most of the surprise was gone... as this Wilson-book owes quite a bit to (amongst others) Graham Hancocks work. But leave it to Colin Wilson to come up with all sorts of new angles, writers I never heard about and very interesting ideas, so this book was defenitely worth while.

Wilson weaves together myth, memory, and astronomy in an awareness that commands us to respect the intellect of humans from tens and even hundreds of millenia in the past. Most significantly, Colin Wilson imparts to the reader a sense of the scale of time itself -- a realization that man, with an intelligence like our own, could have lingered, thrived, and experienced destiny without competition and without warfare for ages. Wilson's main contention is that modern man, in forgettting his past, has forgotten something of central importance... the eternal dance of life that transcends time. Wilson's perceptions open the door to alternative scientific views of man's past, particularly those expressed by Cremo & Thompson in FORBIDDEN ARCHEOLOGY and by Zapp & Erikson in ATLANTIS IN AMERICA: NAVIGATORS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD.

With the overwhelming amount of current research and information being publish on this subject in the last decade Colin Wilson has done a fantastic job. By collating and presenting ideas of authors and scholars in a coherent and linear fashion this book is entirely readable and understandable to all. (Especially those of us left brainers).
However, his own ideas are as fresh and original as ever. Fantastic and insightful! This book sheds light on Humankind's history and possible future by synthesizing information on cultural roots, folklore, religion, hard science and their sociological affects. He gives credit where credit is due (i.e. Santillana, Hapgood, Hancock, Bauval, Flem-ath, West, etc) and has successfully written a book that can be called the Next Generation of it's kind.

For anyone new to the subject and arguements of the origins of human civilisation, this is a handy book to read. It contains a synopsis of the main theories on the topic, and the books that they were published in. However if you are not a newcomer then you will already be familiar with the majority of this book, especially if you have read Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval.
Apart from this, it is still a well written, and well researched book, with a few interesting theories on the nature of the human consciousness. I would recommend purchasing this only if you have spare cash, as there are better books out on the market more deserving of your money
