Lost Star of Myth and Time, Rise and Fall of Civilization and Consciousness
Walter Cruttenden is an amateur theoretical archaeo-astronomer and author of the binary theory of precession. As Executive Director of the Binary Research Institute he researches the celestial mechanics of the precession of the equinox, as well as myth and folklore related to this phenomenon. He is the writer-producer of The Great Year, a PBS broadcast documentary film that explores evidence of astronomical cycles of time known to cultures throughout the ancient world. Most recently Cruttenden wrote Lost Star of Myth and Time, a book that provides an alternative view of history based on the solar system’s motion through space. It is his belief that the myth and folklore depicting a repeating cycle of Golden Ages and Dark Ages may have a basis in fact, due to the alternating stellar forces that affect Earth as our solar system moves in a 24,000-year binary (dual star) orbit. Topics discussed: A companion to the sun, rise and fall of civilization, brown dwarf, dark star, black hole, golden age, precession, waxing and waning of light, consciousness affected by light, weakening magnetic field, more advanced cultures, Mesopotamia, ancient astronomy, Han Dynasty, The Olmecs, technology is manifestation of the rise, Atlantis, Lemuria, myopic, Indians and Greek, 11.500 B.C high culture, Akkadian culture, Mesopotamian culture, the coming dark age, Stonehenge, farming, preservation of knowledge, architecture, 500 A.D. Avebury Circle, polarity of stone, Hadron Collider and more. We begin our second hour briefly talking about Julian Jaynes and his theory of the bicameral mind as it connects with some of Walter’s theories. Then, we really get into Walter’s stellar forces theory. We discuss Sirius in history, mythology and religion and Walter says Sirius doesn't seem to be moving with the other stars. What does this have to with precession? Walter also talks about "the wobble" of the precession of the equinoxes. We discuss Pioneer 10 & 11 as they are entering the outer limits of our solar system and the gravitational anomalies that are happening. Later, we talk about the messages in the stories 12 Labors of Hercules, Jason and the Argonauts and the search for the Golden Fleece. Topics Discussed: Julian Jaynes, the bicameral mind, evidence for the lost star, static solar system, the wobble, "the great year", VLBI, solar system spinning around the galaxy, Nibiru, Sirius, crossing star, chambers in the pyramid aligning with Sirius, Kepler's Law, Shinto, Isis, Horus, the mythological record, occult and secret societies lore about Sirius, Alpha Centauri A and B, Sirius B, moon, Sedna, theory of precession is broken, the Sirius Research Group in Canada, Karl-Heinz Homann, Uwe Homann, IAU, Pioneer 10 & 11, gravitational anomalies, Earth objects and precession, gravity, Sirius gravitational affects, lunar motions, trees as antennas, emergence of an organic technology, the problem of the one and the many, 12 Labors of Hercules, Golden Fleece and much more.
