Session 2: Is the House of History Built on Foundations of Sand?
In Session 2 of Graham Hancock’s “Magical Mystery Tour” Events+ at GaiaSphere, he delves into recovering Earth’s lost civilization and reawakening to consciousness. Established theories about the emergence of civilization cite the invention of agriculture and monumental architecture at precisely 11,600 years ago – immediately after a world-changing cataclysm that we now have evidence for. Yet the cataclysm itself is not considered by archaeologists seeking to explain the origins of civilization. What the record attests, Graham Hancock argues, is not the sudden "invention" of new and previously unknown skills, but a transfer of technology to hunter-gatherers from the survivors of a more advanced "lost" civilization. These survivors travelled the world in their great ships doing all in their power to keep the spark of civilization burning, settling at key locations where new archeological discoveries are now being unearthed – Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, Baalbek in Lebanon, Giza in Egypt, ancient Sumer, Mexico, Peru and across the Pacific - where a huge pyramid has recently been discovered in Indonesia.
