lecturer and guide, John Anthony West delivered a seismic shock to archaeology in the early 1990's when he and Boston
University geologist Robert Schoch revealed that the Great Sphinx of
Giza, Egypt, showed evidence of rainfall erosion. Such erosion could
only mean that
the Sphinx was carved during or before the rains that marked the transition
of northern Africa from the last Ice Age to the present interglacial
epoch, a transition that occurred in the millennia from 10,000 to 5000
civilization was not a development, it was a legacy"
Robert Schoch and I have formed a production company, Akio Enterprises, (which I'll explain in detail in due course) looking to produce both documentary (and maybe even feature) films and books as well. We thought we had the financing together for our ambitious follow-up to Mystery of the Sphinx but unfortunately that seems to have evaporated.
Nevertheless, we now have the "smoking gun" evidence we have long sought (Goebekli Tepe in Turkey) and we are convinced that we will be able to get the funding together to produce Zep Tepi and the Dawn of Civilization. It may not be long before the quackademics are smoked out of their ivory towers once and for all,
In tandem with Akio Enterprises, we now also have a plan to activate our long-hibernating but still-breathing Foundation, and we also have enthusiastic and knowledgeable people aboard to make it happen via micro, (and, with luck, not-so-micro) funding. For starters, Schoch and I are actively compiling/writing a book about our decades-long but still ongoing Sphinx battle (working title: "Dancing Down the Bridge of Sirah: A Scientist and a Scholar Fend off the Unicorns and Take On the Paradigm Police" ... explanation to follow ...eventually)
Curious note: For decades, back before the computer was invented, I dreamed about a way to do an end run around the cannibals and barracudas of Hollywood and mainstream television via some grassroots system of funding. But I could never think of a practical way to make it happen. The digital revolution now makes that possible. Stay tuned! Now it will happen.
PPS. I've mentioned this before. Much of my time the past few years has been devoted to working with my firebrand friend and colleague, trend forecaster Gerald Celente. Most of the turbulence going on now, and which will surely get much worse over the the next few years, was predicted in The TrendsJournal, which has grown from an 8 page black-and-white newsletter into a substantial full color, take-no-prisoners unique magazine. It features art work and spectacular graphics from Eugene Gregan and Anthony Freda, two of America's most talented artists, and articles by a number of extraordinarily knowledgeable contributors. Celente has a proven, uncanny knack for connecting the dots in three dimensions. I am co-writer/historian/philosopher/sometimes-comedian-in residence. Check out www.trendsresearch.com
