This web site is dedicated to recovering memories of our human past through a study of science, mythology, and psychology. Much of this history is obscure and has been covered up by a process of acculturation, whereby archaic memories lose their context and in time become altered in meaning. To build a clearer picture the original meaning must be sleuthed by comparing cross-cultural mythological evidence. This approach is empirical, but so far the scientific community is at best lukewarm about this reconstruction.
Also operating in the background of this process is what I refer to as ‘cultural amnesia’. This is a collective neurosis that has come about through mankind’s past traumatic experience of Earth catastrophes. We don’t want to admit that our world has been and could again be a place of great upheaval.
Much of this troubled memory has been driven underground into the collective unconscious where it continues to negatively impact human culture. This is perhaps the central tenet of this website – recognizing that humanity has lost its mind, and has become untethered from its origins. Without knowing where we came from, we will never know where we are going. We are in a desperate situation, and we need to recover our senses and remember what kind of journey we are on before we self-destruct from our barely understood pathologies.
Amnesia is a peculiar disease, because it is a subtle form of willful forgetfulness. Denial is wrapped up in this package too, as is a stoutly defended ignorance. The end result is a full range of avoidance behavior, though below the radar of most waking consciousness.
