In ancient times, the Earth and heavens appeared vastly unlike the world we know today. With the Thunderbolt Project, David Talbott explains that electricity, arcing across the solar system, had a powerful effect on events in the ancient world. This may have served as provocation for many of the myths which have persisted across the ages.
David Talbott is the author of The Saturn Myth and co-author (with Wallace Thornhill) of The Electric Universe. He is a comparative mythologist in the Velikovsky tradition whose work offers a radical new vantage point on the origin of ancient cultural themes and symbols. His research, motivated by an unpublished manuscript by Immanuel Velikovsky, has been the primary catalyst behind the Saturn Model and is the subject of two documentaries: When the Gods Were Planets and Remembering the End of the World.
