Philip Gardiner is a best-selling author of several books. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows and has made several documentaries, including Freemasonry for the Discovery Channel.
Do you believe in life after death? This is a subject many people have questioned over the years. Is there a heaven with angels or just nothingness? Perhaps we come back as spirits who can feel but not see? Gardiner attempts to put these theories to the test in this incredible, thought provoking book. Gardiner explores many other subjects such as Round Towers and the science of the Pyramids.
He also explains that we as humans have more senses than touch, smell, taste, sight and sound. Our whole body is apparently full of subtle sensors. He claims that we are a walking, talking and communicating satellite dish that is far more complex and receptive than we have ever imagined. If you can digest that information read on and prepare to be amazed!
Did you know that the Ayahuasca tea is believed by the Amazonian people to give individuals access to the unconscious mind? There are many more interesting stories like that to be found.
We also explore dowsing (chapter 7) which is interesting with references to ancient Egypt and serpents. The Rod of Aaron (or wand of Merlin) plays a large part in this chapter as Gardiner mentions that by using the Rod to divine the great serpent spirit in the ground, the ancients were placing their markers or stone monuments on the entry points to the Otherworld of the serpent. This has something to do the Bible and later Christianity but read on to find out for yourself.
I must say I was rather intrigued by the photograph that of an omphalos from Portugal. Shaped rather like an egg, this is said to be the navel or centre of the universe. Really interesting if you read more about this.
Gardiner pays a visit to Dominic O’Brien who is the world’s eight-time memory champion and mind expert. It is said that O’Brien was pioneering a new method of balancing brain wave patterns in partnership with Henry Hopking - a speed-reading and creative-thinking expert and champion. Gardiner believes that our brain waves are trained by such things as the banging of drums or flickering of lights. So intrigued by this and O’Brien, the author decides to have a try at O’Brien’s machine that cleverly shows which brain waves are out of balance. He discovers interesting things about himself and others.
Perhaps the chapter that most will flick to is Finding the Gateway where the author researches all he can to search out the cluesancient people have left us. For instance is there really a gateway to the Otherworld? Seven, says Gardiner, is a number that is commonly used in religious and mythological legends. In the book Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy the number 7 is of extreme importance to the Shamans of Central Asia and Siberia. Basically 7 is a very important number and a key factor to the world of the esoteric and “Gateway” travel.
We also explore what centre, trees and other such things have to do with Gateway/s.
I found this book so hard to put down. With every page Gardiner researches what we want to know the most to the very best of his abilities using thorough research and science to give us the answers. He leaves the reader with better knowledge and understanding about various religions, science, superstitions, objects, cults, myths, symbols, unexplained phenomena, ESP, philosophies, sacred sites plus a wide range of other subjects he delves into.
This is the perfect book to own if you have a profound interest in this sort of scientific subject or are perhaps a big philosopher on the unexplained.
Mysterious, gripping and mind-boggling stuff! I am more then happy to recommend this.
