Ever since the publication of Erich von Daniken’s epic book Chariots of the Gods in 1969, the idea that ancient aliens might have influenced the evolution of human civilization has become a very real possibility. But just who are the true ancient aliens? Science and history writer Andrew Collins presents compelling new evidence that the intelligences behind sudden leaps in human evolution are multidimensional in nature. They can communicate with humanity through transformative experiences, shamanic practices, quantum entanglement, and various forms of altered states of consciousness. Every advancement, from the creation of the first handaxe by Homo erectus 1.75 million years ago to the invention of cutting-edge technologies in our present age, might well be the result of contact with beings who have co-existed with humanity since the beginning.
