by Cynthia GageFillan, an Irishman who lived during the eighth century, had an incurable love for writing whichoften drew him well into the depths of the night. When he entered the monastery of Wexford, hewas informed by superiors that the use of candles was not permitted after certain evening hours.Determined to continue his writing, he unbridled himself of this restriction by way of a miracle.When the curfew hour approached he simply held up his left hand, which shone like a candle, andilluminated sufficient area to continue his writing. Hence, writes Rodney Charles, author of EveryDay A Miracle Happens, Fillan wrote with his right hand, by the light given from his left.

by David LewisCommenting on his latest book, The Return of Merlin, Deepak Chopra observed recently thathistory exists in the eye of the beholder. Chopra spoke of the History Of the Soul versus thetextbook variety. And while the author did not bother to cite examples, it's safe to say thathistorical accuracy has often taken a back seat to political correctness, the old Soviet Union comesto mind. In the days of Galileo, it was the Church that defined reality. She even rearranged theheavens, declaring that the sun revolves around the earth not the other way around. When heresyran afoul of her, she obliterated not only the infidels but their written testimony, as was the casewith the Cathars in southern France. Seven centuries later, accounts of the Cathars found inencyclopedias reflect the Church's geocentricism, as if all revolves around Rome. Yet the last timewe checked, the earth revolves around the sun, which in turn spins in the arm of a spiral galaxyreeling into infinity. And the truth behind medieval heresies may have a similar trajectory, TheNever-Ending Quest of mystics, Templars, and Cathars for Absolute Knowledge. That quest,relegated by skeptics to quixotic fancy, has little to do with textbook history, yet everything to withsecret history, the history of the soul.

by Valerie FreeIn the last two centuries Western medicine has become the application of one science, namelybiochemistry. Its basic tenet has been that life is chemical. Thus, it has seemed logical to assumethat, whatever the ills of our chemical bodies, they could be cured best by the right chemicalantidote. The philosophical outcome of chemical medicine's success has been belief in TheTechnological Fix. Drugs have become the treatment for all ailments. Although we are learningthat the more chemicals we put into our body the more we disturb the chemistry of our bodies, themedical community stays on the same merry-go-round. In addition, techniques that do not fit suchchemical concepts, even if they seem to work, have been abandoned or condemned.

by Len KastenAccording to author-astronomer Robert Bauval, the answer to the ancient secret of Giza is in theStars. When Robert Bauval came to the realization, one starry night in the Arabian desert, that thethree pyramids of Giza were arranged on the ground to replicate the arrangement of the three starsin Orion's belt, ancient astronaut theorization was the farthest thing from his mind. Je tiensl'affaire, he shouted excitedly when he understood the connection, deliberately mimickingChampollion's exclamation when he had deciphered the Rosetta Stone. At the time of hisdiscovery, Bauval was a construction engineer working in the Middle East. In his subsequent book,The Orion Mystery, co-authored with Adrian Gilbert, Bauval demonstrated convincingly that theancient Egyptians were sophisticated astronomers, and that their religious beliefs and practiceswere far more profound and esoteric than previously believed.

by Joseph Robert Jochmans, Lit. D.Walk into any modern museum, or open any history textbook, and the picture of the past presentedis one in which humanity started from primitive beginnings, and steadily progressed upward in thedevelopment of culture and science. Most of the artifacts preserved in archaeological andgeological records have been neatly arranged to fit this accepted linear view of our past. Yet manyother tantalizing bits and pieces unearthed offer a very different story of what really happened.Called out-of-place artifacts, they don't fit the established pattern of prehistory, pointing back instead to the existence of advanced civilizations before any of the known ancient cultures cameinto being. Though such discoveries with their inherent sophistication are well-documented, mosthistorians would like to sweep these disturbing anomalies under the proverbial rug. But the rug of true history is getting very lumpy, and hard to step across without tripping over such obviouscontradictions to the conservative picture of antiquity.

by J. Douglas KenyonFrom a Human Potentials conference in Washington, D.C. to a Whole Life Exposition in Seattle,from campus bull sessions in Berkeley to cocktail party discussions in Boston, no talk of the hotalternative explorations into the mysterious wellsprings of civilization gets very far these dayswithout at least a passing reference to the work of Zecharia Sitchin. And there are no signs thatinterest in the author of the five volumes of The Earth Chronicles, and the forthcoming DivineEncounters from Avon Books, is cooling.
