Many Egyptian digs reveal awesome new history.
Different Yucatan digs reveal additional historical perspectives.
Plus some worldwide artifact discoveries keep rewriting, however small, traditional views of different civilizations.
So, what’s being taught in our colleges and universities?
Do they keep up with the discoveries? Do they teach Bacon’s words –“Antiquities are history defaced?”
Are our historical dates even accurate? Are cultural and racial roots more of a mystery than the current reality?
If Atlantis existed, and Plato refers to it, what does this mean?
If Lemuria (MU) existed, and James Churchward, a British Archeologist, who wrote several books about its existence, writes that it did. What does this mean?
If past lives are real and the “one and done” beliefs are wrong, how does this affect history? This one fact alone would explode all viewpoints of historical figures: Prime Ministers. Kings. Queens. Presidents. You name it.
What if karma – the law of cause and effect – is a reality?
You want the truth. It is a reality. It’s a scientific law.
And if karma extends to people, societies, parties, nations, and wars, then our history, as written, is just a bad karmic dream.
There’s a chance history’s pages are incomplete. A big chance. And when you factor in the different chroniclers of history, what is history, really?
An opinion? A guess? A fact with no memory?
And what are the effects of inaccurate historical reporting?
Beliefs are upside down. Cultural perspectives are twisted. Even religious perspectives are uncertain. And societies, people, and countries create all sorts of laws that affect people. For years. For centuries. Leaving paths of human destruction. Maybe all for the wrong reasons.
Across the earth there are numerous anomalies that can’t be explained, using current historical beliefs.
There’s simply no explanation for the state of the world today by studying only history.
Why? Because today’s history probably isn’t the complete picture. Invisible forces move civilizations forward or backward. Based on the actions and reactions of the past. Where darkness often reigns like vapors of insanity.
Lessons aren’t learned. Injuries aren’t forgotten. The way forward isn’t an inspiration. But a desperation to settle scores and insults. Over and over.
“So Mark, what did you learn in your college history class today?”
“The usual: Dates. And more dates. Some events. People. Some stories that are probably not totally true. But no real insights. It’s always about war and religion and written documents that mean little. Are their deeper insights, Olivia?”
“Like why is Western Civilization mired in religious beliefs so different from other beliefs, especially eastern?”
“Yes. I see your point. History teachers talk about events and personages. But the question is, how accurate is the history—especially ancient history?”
“I sure get that. Often, the so-called truth just doesn’t feel right.”
“Well, that’s the conundrum, Mark. We need more real historical information. And less historical opinion and guesswork. So, the question is, is it possible to know the way forward? Or it just groundhog day.”
So, the back and forth continues. That’s why I like to explore historical possibilities through fiction. Fiction awakens the imagination and can reveal significant perspectives. Many authors reach for the intuitive, where many truths lurk.
Why not write to uncover different perspectives. Many that might actually make sense.
In A Magi’s Destiny, I explore earth’s possible future. Different ways humankind interacts with our world. Different ways that can affect the world’s destiny.
The day will come, suddenly, when the dagger in the earth’s heart must be removed for the future to exist. Your life becomes incidental when the hour of turning is near.
