The Great Year (2003)
The Great Year examines not only how ancient cultures studied and documented astronomy, but also how these ancient records demonstrate cultural cycles of consciousness found throughout time.
Specifically, the video re-introduces an idea presented thousands of years ago in Plato’s Timaeus and then again in The Holy Science by Sri Yukteswar, that a great 24,000-year astronomical cycle, including the precession of the equinox, may result from the relationship of our sun to a distant binary partner.
The program takes a provocative look at this theory, presenting current observations and questioning modern-day explanations while promoting continued exploration in our search for knowledge.
