How's it going everyone? Enjoying this site very much, so I thought I'd get the posting ball rolling.
I'm a general fan of forteana and folklore. I've recently been reading Serpent in the Sky by John Anthony West - anybody read it?

Hi Ian,
yeah it's a good read, although I have to admit some of the number symbology/philosophy went a little over my head. But I'd reccomend it to anyone interested in alternative history interpretations.

I think i might have done along time ago.
is he the Egyptologist guy who annoys Hawass the Director of Antiquities for Cairo- no hang on a minute I am gettimg confused with Robert Shoch who famously said that according his evidence-water erosion, that the Sphinx was a hell of a lot older than we we think
Never mind I think i am going off topic here

I'll google John anthony West and get back on message

anyway, welcome to this great site

Re: Hi everyone!

ok here it goes
John Anthony west is a maverick and I admire him.
His book Serpent in the Sky challenges our view of Egypt the land of magic and mystery.Look it up on Amazon.co.uk
Keep with me on this one.
It sounds like they were deploying what all of us would call the appliance of science. Electricity etc.
Nikola Tesla tried to do the same thing-ie reproduce electricity from the magnetic fields of the earth.
The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century: Nikola Tesla - Forgotten Genius of Electricity by Robert Lomas (Paperback - 4 May 2000
I will keep on topic but I don't Know where to put it on the Forum.
Sue Blackmore is a sceptic,http://www.susanblackmore.co.uk/research.htm
but even she admits that having her brain undergoing or subject to magnetic fields, she to was surprised at the resulting hallucinations-typically a sense of a presence in the room
that is where I come in. the argument is, if this makes sense-are we spiritual beings or just flesh.
Are there other dimensions or do we just die -end of

Hi indiagold,

yeah West and Shoch worked together on the whole Sphinx-is-older-than-we-think argument, and I'd say it's quite likely that both of them annoy Hawass lol.

I like this question! I think a Metaphysical Thread would be appropriate, what do you think?
