Human Origins, the earliest periods of human activity on this planet remain largely unknown, due in part to the success of Establishment scientists in either simply ignoring or deliberately suppressing evidence, however persuasive, that does not fit in with their hypotheses. Much of what is enshrined in textbooks is at best incomplete. The modern, accepted picture of human beings having evolved from ape-like creatures only a couple of hundred thousand years ago is increasingly seen to be inadequate.
This is not to say that the doctrine of physical evolution is necessarily wrong. It will, however, require profound modification. The idea that we are all descended from one African ancestor does not stand in the face of evidence that recognizably human beings, whether or not directly ancestral in the biological sense, have been present on this planet for many millions of years.
For over a century, so-called “OOPARTS,” out-of-place artifacts, from geological strata millions, even hundreds of millions of years old, have been found, identified as to time and place of origin, then conveniently forgotten, as they did not fit into the current scientific paradigm of a steady evolution by chance involving a process called natural selection leading to the survival of the fittest over vast periods of time, with modern humans suddenly arriving on the scene a mere thirty-five thou- sand to forty thousand years ago.
Artifacts left by earlier humans on this planet have been identified on Manitoulin Island in Canada (125,000 years), at Hueyatlaco, Mexico (250,000 years) and at Table Mountain, California (from nine million to fifty-five million years BP). Similar OOPARTS have been found in many, many locations, testifying to the presence of recognizably human or humanoid forerunners on this planet as early as the Mesozoic Era that ended sixty-five million years ago. This cohabitation with dinosaurs is clearly suggested by the ICA stones of Peru and the Acámbaro figures of Mexico.
The truth is that very little can be said with certainty about our forebears. Hundreds if not thousands of cultures have come and gone. Only a very few of those that are known to us can be covered in these seventeen cards. Hence these Culture cards represent just some of the civilizations that have cycled through the rise and the seemingly inevitable decline of collective human societies. Every experience of the triumph or defeat of a culture adds greatly to one’s growth.
Associations and memories of particular cultures are rendered more easily accessible in the case of a shared group experience. You no doubt will also find that you are already aware of intuitive resonances to certain regions.
These cards are designed to stimulate further these far memories so that you may develop a greater understanding both of the illusory nature of this physical world and, ultimately, of who you really are.
