Ancient Civilizations

Ancient Civilizations Book Group

with Margaret Bartley

Third Monday of the month, 7 pm
Free for members, $5 per session for the general pubic

This month's book is The Wars of God and Men, by Zecharia Sitchin
Zecharia Sitchin is an academic researcher looking at the ancient Cuniform tablets not as unreal mythology, but as literal history.

In this, the third of his series looking at the development of humanity, as translated from ancient texts, he examines several different sources of information, including the Old Testament, and tablets in various museums, and builds a history of massive warfare resulting in nulclear holocaust four thousand years ago.

A brief discussion of our group, as this is a different kind of book group

Academic archeology needs to be redefined.
We have many books in our library discussing remnants of a high civilization that spanned the globe.
Artifacts, skeletons, archeological remains, underwater cities, fossilized bones - the evidence keeps building of civilization with advanced technology and knowledge even our contemporary technicians do not have.
Researchers have also found that the myths and legends of societies around the world have similar oral traditions that point to a time in the far past when technologically advanced civilizations knew a collapse was coming, and left clues for their descendents to decipher when those descendents became advanced enough to decode the messages.

This is a book group that you can join, and do not have to do any reading!
At least one person in the group will have read the book.
The purpose of the group is to share the information in the book.
Maybe you've wanted to read more about these ancient worlds, but get distracted, and never finish (or start!) the book.

No problem - you don't have to! You just have to want to learn and discuss it.

Dream Machine

Dream Machine

11 am Sundays by appointment (other times may also be available)

The Dreamachine is a rotating cylinder on an old-fashioned record-player spinning 78 revolutions per minute. The cylinder has precisely cut out holes that produce a complex stobescopic effect when rotating around a bright light.

Besides the trippy visual effects the device is said to induce lucid dreaming and intense daydreaming. It promotes a trancelike serenity, intensifies creativity and insight and even uncovers suppressed memories.

The first hour will be for beginners, with shorter sessions. After the first hour, we will break, and those who want more in-depth experience can stay for a longer session.

Please bring a pillow to sit on. People who call and reserve a spot will be given priority if we have too many people. Only eight people can fit around the table.
