Quantavolution is a word coined by Alfred de Grazia, an important scholar who has written many books on a revised telling of ancient planetary history. In the modern era he is second only to Immanuel Velikovsky in significance. De Grazia has thankfully built many of his theories atop Velikovsky’s, correcting some along the way and elaborating upon others.
De Grazia is a catastrophist, someone who recognizes that great and profound changes have occurred on Earth that are only dimly remembered. The impacts have been so extensive, that they influence nearly all the scientific disciplines. Such catastrophes also influence the soft sciences of mythology, psychology, sociology and others.
In recognizing such a deep effect, and having encountered this example time and again, de Grazia realized he needed a neologism to convey such an important principle, or shall we say, “key concept.” In his book published in 1981, Chaos and Creation, he lays out the basis for this term.
Quantavolution was born, and de Grazia has returned to it routinely to describe an event that is off the charts in its physical impact and its future influence to human affairs.
This term is important because we don’t have a good English word for such a meaning. Its significance is that it speaks of a process rather than the immediate event. It’s what happens afterwards that’s so important. It’s a recognition that some changes are so vast and so thorough that they make the previous conditions disappear. Such are the era ending conflagrations that have terminated civilizations throughout history. These kinds of quantavolution events only come about through an exo terrestrial agency. Earth bound volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, super storms and tsunamis rarely rose to this level unless they were part of Earth disturbances once caused by passing heavenly bodies.
Quantavolution is a term that well supports the Planet Amnesia narrative because it incorporates the full range of catastrophic change occurring to the Earth and the people living upon it. It doesn’t leave out the human element. In fact, the human element is the most important part. These were our ancestors, and their experiences were encoded into their cultures and passed down to us in ways that we barely recognize. When human populations suffer near total die-offs this is a memory for survivors that goes underground. Amnesia sets in and the past recedes in forgetfulness. However, clues remain, for man has left his mark all over this planet, and in all ages. It is our job to recover the memory of these lost worlds and bring them back into the light, helping make sense of our chaotic past so we will no longer be held hostage by our ignorance.
