Long ago, in a time now forgotten, humanity thrived during a golden age of peace, harmony and abundance as the glowing visage of Saturn perpetually loomed high above…and all good things come to an end. Today, we may find remnants of these bygone centuries when we seek to understand the mythic archetypes depicted by the thunderbolt and celestial wheel as etched upon ancient rock faces. David Talbott recounts various repetitive motifs found in rock art which may give us a glimpse at humanity’s long-lost history in this interview with Regina Meredith originally webcast June 23, 2015.
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 His research, motivated by an unpublished manuscript by Immanuel Velikovsky, has been the primary catalyst behind the Saturn Model and is the subject of two documentaries: When the Gods Were Planets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.
