Path of Souls: The Native American Death Journey: Cygnus, Orion, the Milky Way, Giant Skeletons in Mounds, & the Smithsonian (English Edition) Kindle版
America’s ancient Mound Builders left behind thousands of pyramid-shaped and conical burial mounds, complex geometric earthworks, effigy mounds, and incredible artifacts depicting mysterious symbols. When the first European explorers began reporting their discovery of these enigmatic structures (over 400 years ago) no one knew who built them. No one seemed to know the meaning of the symbols, and the ritualistic purposes of the complex geometric earthen shapes were a complete mystery. That forgotten knowledge is explained by the decimation of Native American populations by explorers and gold-seeking Spanish conquistadores. Within a generation after the Spanish entered America, Native American populations decreased by over 90 percent from disease and war. It is now known that many ancient earthworks were used to assist souls of the dead in their journey to the sky world and the mysterious symbols were used in rituals by an elite ruling class of priests and chiefs. Souls journeyed to the west where they made a leap of faith to the sky. The souls then made a journey along the Milky Way until they reached the most important spot on the path. This was at the Great Rift of the Milky Way, where they encountered an enigmatic Adversary located at the Constellation of Cygnus. Path of Souls details this amazing death journey and how it was revealed in recent times by archaeologists. It is also thought that the newly revealed Native American death journey explains much about ancient Egyptian ideas of death. Where did these ideas about the death journey come from and when did they arrive in America? Who were the elite rulers of the Mound Builders? Hundreds of newspaper articles from the 1800s and early 1900s reported giant skeletons found in large stone tombs buried deep inside burial mounds. Were these tall leaders the elite? Today the Smithsonian asserts that there we no giants in the ancient world but in their actual published mound excavation reports, they detailed the discovery of many skeletons at least seven feet tall. Path of Souls explores all of these issues and is lavishly illustrated with over 150 maps, photos, and illustrations. Foreword & extensive Afterword by Andrew Collins.

It amazed me how densely populated N America was2015年5月18日 - (Amazon.com)
I appreciate his summarization of the meanings of the symbols and the collaboration with Collins on the Cygnus material. It amazed me how densely populated N America was, and how advanced these cities were, and it enlarged my understanding of why empires fail when people are held in total control through fear-mongering elites. I was particularly interested in the symbols themselves, and how they relate to the stars. This book is an important piece of the puzzle of who we are and where did we come from, but it is a smaller piece than I had hoped for.
Having grown up in an area where there were mounds ...2016年2月24日 - (Amazon.com)
Having grown up in an area where there were mounds it is interesting to see the ideas that were tied to their construction and use.

I have some special interests in this area of symbolism and cosmology. I found this fascinating and reconfirming of some of my views. I think the tie in with related ideas from around the world do not go back 18,000 years. It's a lot more recent than that, but no matter. The connection with cosmological understanding is a fascinating thing. I'm also interested in the references to "giants" and how that ties in with quite a number of scriptural references to people of large stature, large and might men, etc. Well worth the read for me.
Did ancient cultures share an afterlife story?2014年9月9日 - (Amazon.com)
Fascinating and scholarly look at native American beliefs regarding the journey from life to death. Author draws stunning parallels to other ancient cultural beliefs from Egypt and elsewhere. While not quite ancient aliens, it is certainly grist for that mill and very well written and thought provoking. The research is sound and some of it recently unearthed. Is it a shared mythology passed through time, or the product of education from beyond? Lots to ponder.
