Entangled Novel - Lost Civilizations, Ancient/Modern Global Cataclysms, and Supernatural Entities - Graham Hancock

Graham Hancock (born 2 August 1950 in Edinburgh, Scotland) is a British writer and journalist. His books include Lords of Poverty, The Sign and the Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, Keeper of Genesis (released in the US as Message of the Sphinx), The Mars Mystery, Heaven's Mirror (with wife Santha Faiia), Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization, and Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith (with co-author Robert Bauval). He also wrote and presented the Channel 4 documentaries Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age and Quest for the Lost Civilisation.

Author and investigator Graham Hancock discussed his research of lost civilizations, ancient global cataclysms, and consciousness, as well as his new novel Entangled, which deals with time travel, NDEs, and the supernatural. History's past has been hidden from us, particularly as you go back further than 5,000 years ago, he commented. "I think there's been a huge forgotten episode in human history...all the myths and traditions of a great lost civilization destroyed in a huge cataclysm leaving only a very few survivors...are absolutely true," he said, noting that it was "a time when something so horrendous happened to the Earth and humanity that our memory banks were virtually completely wiped."

These cataclysmic events took place at the end of the last Ice Age, around 12,000 years ago, with gigantic ice sheets melting sometimes quite rapidly, creating waves that reached 600 feet high, he detailed. This led to a 30 ft. rise in sea level, with massive land areas (estimated to be the size of the whole of Europe and China) swallowed by the sea. During this time, there were also huge spikes in seismic and volcanic activity, with mass extinctions, and a "global winter" that may have lasted 800-900 years, Hancock said, adding that we might be the next "lost civilization" if similar climate/earth changes occur again.

His new book Entangled features a plot line in which two characters from different time periods, one current day, the other from the Stone Age, are able to communicate with each other through consciousness in order to stop the actions of an evil supernatural entity who appears in both time frames. The first four chapters of the book are available for free online, along with videos of Hancock reading selections.

RedIceRadio April 12, 2010 — Join us for a fascinating two-hour program with author Graham Hancock. With books such as "Fingerprints of the Gods", "The Sign and the Seal", "Keeper of Genesis", "Talisman", "Underworld" and "Supernatural" he's become a legend in the field of alternative research. We begin to talk about his latest book Entangled, a novel, and ask why he's chosen to go into the field of fiction, considering his past and excellent non-fiction works. We talk about the advantages of writing fiction. We discuss how Graham's earlier books and research have influenced the writing of Entangled. Topics discussed: Ayahuasca, shamanism, Entangled, why a novel? Academic critics, Underworld, The advantage of writing fiction, the reality behind the story in Entangled, Therianthrope, Anthropos, "Sulpa" & "Illimani", DMT, Supernatural, apocalyptic themes, Rick Strassman, "The Spirit Molecule", quantum physics, the mystery of consciousness, ECG, Plato, soul, near death experience, consciousness, ancestors, cave art, psychedelic plants & substances, the computer, Steve Jobs and LSD, Watson and Crick, knowledge vs. ignorance, violence, fear of death, western civilization, Tibetan book of the dead, Hermes and more. We proceed talking with Graham in hour two for members. We begin to talk about the end, the cyclical nature of civilization and how fragile western society is with its specialization and how intelligence seems to be going down, not up. We talk about inventions of a mind induced by so called vision drugs and various theories on when man first came into contact with psilocybin mushrooms, Amanita Muscaria and Soma. We talk about plants and substances that might have helped to spark the mind of ancient man. We carry the discussion over to the preservation of the shamanic tradition, gnosis, knowledge and we discuss the Gnostics, Cathars, Knights Templar leading into Freemasonry, Rosicrucian's and we get Graham's take on the fruits of these societies and secret societies. What is the destiny of America, "The New Atlantis", who were the founding fathers and what was their intention? We discuss so called "sacred cities" and "sacred faith" and how ancient Egyptian civilization seem to have been supplanted around the world. We talk about alignments of monuments and buildings to the stars in the heaven. We ask if this philosophy can be found in modern times, with cities such as Astana in Kashakztan that have pyramids and spectacular monuments that seem to stem from the same tradition and religious beliefs. We talk about the philosophy of some of the architects and we also get Graham's take on the alien intervention theory of people such as Däniken, Zithin, Lloyd Pye and others. Don't miss this exciting second hour.

George Adamski (April 17, 1891 – April 23, 1965) was a Polish-born American citizen who became widely known in ufology circles, and to some degree in popular culture, after he claimed to have photographed ships from other planets, met with friendly Nordic alien "Space Brothers", and to have taken flights with them. The first of the so-called contactees of the 1950s, he styled himself to be a "philosopher, teacher, student and saucer researcher."
