Join us Wednesday September 10, 2014 at 6:30 PM for “Megalithic Anachronisms – The Mystery of Ancient Impossibilities in Massive Stone Architecture“ presented by Jim Patterson.

Back by popular demand is a presentation made in the early days of LES in May 2011.  Catch this 2nd edition now before another 3 years goes by!

In this compelling session you’ll be shown a large number of examples of ancient megalithic (monolithic stone) architecture from around the world that shows ancient man was far more advanced than what we’re taught in the history books.

You’ll see . . . .

  • Exactly why the pervasive granite, diorite and andesite statues and stones cut throughout the ancient world cannot be hewn by copper chisels or pounding balls as claimed;
  • Stones cut, shaped and finished by the ancients that are so hard we, as modern man, have to use very recent technology (hardened steel and diamond cutting tools) to begin to replicate them;
  • Constructions containing stones up to 900 tons that we’ve only just been able to lift and move within the last 50 to 100 years of technology;
  • Stone joints that are so tight and stone surfaces that are so flat they scream “space age precision”;
  • The failed modern attempts to replicate the skills of the ancients.

The ancients were Masters Of Stone – phenomenal quarrying, cutting, transporting, lifting, fitting and finishing capabilities that plainly show the simple explanations of archaeologists (with no engineering knowledge) fall far, far short of reality.

July 9, 2014 (Wednesday) – The Incredible 2,000 Year-Old Greek Computer: Antikythera Mechanism

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History Comments Off on July 9, 2014 (Wednesday) – The Incredible 2,000 Year-Old Greek Computer: Antikythera Mechanism

NOTE: Effective June 2014 with our new location, we’re going to move our meetings to the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.

S_AM01Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting:   The Incredible 2,000 Year-Old Greek Computer: Antikythera Mechanism presented by Jim Patterson.

In 1900 a Greek sponge diving crew discovered the remains of a Roman shipwreck on the floor of the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the tiny Greek island of Antikythera. Among the treasures brought up by these divers were the most exquisite examples of ancient Greek marble and bronze statues ever discovered. These now grace the halls of the National Museum of Archaeology in Athens. Based on artifacts retrieved it is believed that the shipwreck is from about 100-80 BC (2,000 years ago).

Also discovered and retrieved were lumps of corroded bronze and wood that didn’t appear to be anything of importance. Not until the 1950s did someone notice these chunks of crud stored away in the backroom of the museum were some sort of complex geared mechanism. This was a shock! A mechanism of this sort shouldn’t have existed in the Greek and Roman era.

Since the 1950’s this mechanism has been thoroughly studied using increasingly advanced technologies in attempts to ascertain: Who could have created it? Where was it built – and when? How many gears did it have? What did all the gears do? What was its purpose? Why was it on this Roman ship? How could anyone in ancient Greece or Rome design and actually build such a device? All evidence points to an extremely complex astronomical clock, small enough to hold on your lap! In the modern era, historians believed that early astronomical clocks weren’t even starting to be developed until the 14th century (early Renaissance). Yet here we have a very complex astronomically geared device discovered in an ancient Roman shipwreck of about 80 BC. It shouldn’t be there! It was a treasure to surpass all treasures!

We’ll watch two high quality videos showing the discovery, research, theories of its origins, an amazing hand-built working model, and most incredibly… the superb technologies used in the most recent analysis in 2012 to discover elements of the mechanism never before known. After the videos we’ll share some exciting details about what’s coming up in September of this year to potentially increase the breadth of discoveries of this shipwreck and device. Join us and discover how one unbelievable mechanism is rewriting history.

S_ubuntuJoin the Louisville Esoteric Society on Wednesday June 11, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting:   UBUNTU – From Ancient History to Free Energy to a World without Money presented by Logan McCulloch.

Michael Tellinger spent his early years as an esoteric researcher focused upon the topic of ancient civilization and its potential original roots in and around his home country of South Africa.  He incorporated the work of researchers such as Klaus Dona and Zecharia Sitchin in trying to connect the dots between ancient Sumer, the Anunnaki and some fascinating megalithic sites he and others had discovered in South Africa.

He espouses a theory that connects the Anunnaki with ancient and modern priest/king bloodlines and the origins of the human species.  He wrote books including Slave Species of God and Adam’s Calendar.  From that research he branched out and began studying the underlying causes of the continued subjugation of the vast majority of the world population to an elite ruling group.  He coined the term “Contributionism” to describe one potential solution to his theories about the inherent tyranny of money, and its deliberate introduction into human society many thousands of years ago.

Join us for a video interview with Michael and what’s sure to be a spirited post video discussion.

May 28, 2013 – Symbols of an Alien Sky

Ancient History Comments Off on May 28, 2013 – Symbols of an Alien Sky

Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday May 28, 2013 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting topic:  Symbols of an Alien Sky ” presented by Logan McCulloch.

This is a video documentary that could change everything you thought you knew about ancient, prehistorical times and how much ancient mythology we have carried into modern times and religious thinking.

Based on more than two decades of systematic research and cross-cultural comparison by comparative mythologist David Talbott reconstructs a cosmic drama when planets hung in the sky close to the earth–an epoch of celestial wonder giving rise to time-honored symbols.

Symbols of an Alien Sky will introduce you to celestial spectacles and earth-shaking events once remembered around the world. Archaic symbols of these events still surround us, some as icons of the world’s great religions, though the origins of the symbols appear to be lost in obscurity.

Cultural history seems fragmented and contradictory. But as demonstrated in this introductory episode, there are also levels of deep agreement between the cultures. According to David Talbott, these “archetypes” allow for a radical reinterpretation of both human and planetary history. Competing regional symbols are aspects of “one story told around the world,” a story both awe inspiring and terrifying.

Perhaps the most compelling discovery comes from the sciences. Independent investigation over the past 12 years has confirmed that the celestial formations Talbott reconstructed—all from historical evidence—precisely match the behavior of electric discharge in the plasma laboratory and in remote space. A convergence of historical evidence and plasma science has occurred. The converging research points to planetary instability and intense electrical events in ancient times. a challenge to some of the most cherished assumptions in today’s theoretical sciences.

This highly visual presentation takes an in-depth look at origins of our symbolic archetypes, and offers new answers to questions about the role of the planet gods in prehistorical times. Why did every ancient civilization celebrate a former “Age of the Gods”, an age claimed to have ended in earth threatening disaster? What was meant by the lost “Golden Age?” Why did ancient sky worshipers refer to Saturn as “the sun?” Why was Venus worshiped as the “Mother Goddess?” And why did both Old and New World astronomers celebrate the planet Mars as a great warrior whose battles shook the heavens? And a thousand other intriguing “Whys”.   (Approximately 78 minutes.)

***  We’ll have a door prize drawing for those in attendance and the winner will get a copy of the DVD!  ***

May 14, 2013 – The Klaus Dona Chronicles: Secret World I

Ancient History Comments Off on May 14, 2013 – The Klaus Dona Chronicles: Secret World I

Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday May 14, 2013 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting topic:  The Klaus Dona Chronicles: Secret World I ” presented by Jim Patterson.

Indiana Jones, the fictional adventurer and treasure seeker introduced in ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’, lit the world on fire with ideas of ancient mystical legends.  But little is known about our true ancient past.  Klaus Dona, an adept researcher on a quest for artifacts, held the world’s first ‘Unsolved Mysteries‘ exhibit to Vienna in 2001.  The over 400 original artifacts on display revealed a forbidden archeology and pointed to lost civilizations whose acceptance would re-write history.  Crystal skulls, ancient world maps, mysterious continents, Atlantean relics, golden space craft, tools that defy modern technology, magnetic pyramids that glow under ultraviolet light, and evidence of giants 25 feet tall!  In this 75-minute documentary Klaus details his findings and shows many rarely seen and highly unusual ancient artifacts from South America and Africa.  ‘The Klaus Dona Chronicles: Secret World I” is the first in a series of educational DVDs that chronicle his adventures and discoveries.

March 12, 2013 – Has the ‘Hall of Records’ of Atlantis Been Discovered in Giza, Egypt?

Ancient History Comments Off on March 12, 2013 – Has the ‘Hall of Records’ of Atlantis Been Discovered in Giza, Egypt?

Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday March 12, 2013 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting topic:  Has the ‘Hall of Records’ of Atlantis Been Discovered in Giza, Egypt?” presented by Jim Patterson.

In the 1930s the “Sleeping Prophet” Edgar Cayce gave a number of readings that spoke of a Hall of Records.  It consisted of one or more chambers somewhere beneath the surface of the Giza Plateau in Egypt near the Sphinx – holding the ancient records of Atlantis and Earth’s even earlier history.  Created in 10,500 BC at the same time the Great Pyramid and Sphinx were supposedly built, its designer and creator was the Egyptian ‘god’ Thoth (Hermes).  He and his fellow Atlanteans escaped the final destruction of their continent and wished to preserve ancient knowledge, wisdom and technology to be revealed millennia later as humanity moved towards a more spiritual life.  This, then, was the story as given in the Edgar Cayce’s readings.

Does ancient or contemporary evidence indicate this Hall of Records might actually exist?  What evidence points to a vast and hidden underground complex of chambers beneath the Giza Plateau?  Has the Hall of Records already been found, but not revealed?  Is this simply a story of fiction – or a hidden reality known by a very few?

Follow us along an intriguing path of mysterious breadcrumbs, looking to uncover the answer to an ancient detective story.  Find out about three different sets of people who independently claimed to find the Hall of Records and what they said it contains.  Are their stories credible or a fabrication?

Fact?  Fiction?  You decide.

Everyone in attendance will have a chance to win one of two door prizes to be given away after the meeting:

  • The book:  “Beneath The Pyramids” by Andrew Collins
  • The DVD:  “Beneath The Pyramids” with Andrew Collins

All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.

October 23, 2012 – The Mysterious Origins of Man: Rewriting Human History

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture Comments Off on October 23, 2012 – The Mysterious Origins of Man: Rewriting Human History

Join us on Tuesday October 23, 2012 for our discussion group topic, The Mysterious Origins of Man: Rewriting Human History” presented by Jim Patterson.

The creators of the Emmy Award Winning Mystery of the Sphinx present a revolutionary new film that examines one of our greatest mysteries: Man’s origins.  Hosted by Charlton Heston, this film challenges what we are being taught about human evolution and the rise of early civilization.  A new breed of scientific investigators present startling evidence that the academic community has quietly ignored.

* Did humans evolve from the ape?  Human artifacts and bones have been found that are older than the theory of evolution allows.

* Did humans live at the time of the dinosaur?  Human footprints have been found next to dinosaur footprints dated to over 100 million years ago.

* Could the “Lost Continent of Atlantis” be buried under two miles of ice?  Graham Hancock reveals how ancient maps may hold the answer to the mystery of Atlantis.

* A megalithic city high in the Bolivian Andes has been dated to 15,000 BC.  What unknown civilization could have built it?  If this evidence is allowed to speak for itself, human history on this planet may be radically different than what is accepted today.

Includes the facts about this amazing mystery and a fascinating series of spellbinding interviews with researchers, scientists, and the best known, most credible authorities in the world today.

This film aired on NBC years ago and caused quite an uproar among orthodox historians!  Come out and enjoy an interesting look at alternative history.

July 24, 2012 – Thunderbolts of the Gods – The Electric Universe

Ancient History, Cosmology Comments Off on July 24, 2012 – Thunderbolts of the Gods – The Electric Universe

Join us on Tuesday July 24, 2012 for our discussion group topic, Thunderbolts of the Gods – The Electric Universepresented by Bob Hartye.

Conventional cosmology has tried to understand and explain the structure and history of the universe based exclusively on the force of gravity between neutral bodies.  However, most matter in the universe is electrically charged plasma and the electric force between charged bodies is over a trillion-trillion-trillion times larger than the force of gravity.  As a result, many of the new discoveries, made possible by our new observational tools, contradict the existing gravitational model, requiring the fabrication of un-provable phenomena and un-detectible entities to hold onto it.  In contrast, these new discoveries can be readily explained by an electrical model of the universe using principles that have been demonstrated in plasma physics labs for decades.

This video introduces an Electric Model of the Universe and recounts how a renewed effort in this area was given an unexpected assist by mythological accounts of an ancient sky much different than what we observe today.   After the 1 hour video there will be a 15 minute presentation on some of the implications of this new Plasma Cosmology.

Join LES on Tuesday July 24 for “Thunderbolts of the Gods – The Electric Universe.”

July 10, 2012 – The Great Year

Ancient History Comments Off on July 10, 2012 – The Great Year

Join us on Tuesday July 10, 2012 for our discussion group topic, The Great Year (DVD Documentary)presented by Jim Patterson.

In the distant past, it was believed that the movement of the stars guided the rise and fall of human civilization.  How much did the ancients really know?

Just as day and night are caused by the spinning Earth, and the seasons by the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, so too did the ancients believe in a larger cycle that influenced the rise and fall of civilization.  Plato called it the Great Year.

This provocative film, narrated by James Earl Jones, investigates the common threads in mythological beliefs around the ancient world and looks back into time seeking answers to the questions that still loom over science and history today.

  • How far back into history do humankind’s roots really go?
  • What did the ancients know about the stars and their movements and what can we learn from them?
  • How was the precession of the equinox, the slow progression of the stars across the sky over thousands of years, used to mark the rise and fall of great ages by the ancients?
  • What evidence is there that the ‘wobble’ of the Earth’s orbit falls short of explaining the precession of the equinox?
  • What was the so-called “Golden Age” that almost all civilizations reference, and what could have caused it?
  • What archaeological evidence of advanced, lost civilizations points to this “Golden Age”?
  • How does the 24,000 year Precession of the Equinox match up to the Vedic Yuga cycles?

Many cultures spoke of an unseen sun that drives precession and causes the cycle of the Great Year.  Could there be an unseen binary partner to our Sun?  The Great Year examines this theory and finds that perhaps these ancients were really onto something!

October 11, 2011 Discussion – “The Mystery of the Sphinx”

Ancient Engineering, Ancient History, Megalithic Architecture 2 Comments »

On Tuesday October 11, 2011 we watched “The Mystery of the Sphinx ” – presented by Jim Patterson.  In this DVD hosted by Charlton Heston that originally aired on NBC in 1993, John Anthony West explored the exciting theories and discoveries about the most famous monument of all time, the Great Sphinx of Egypt.

Does the evidence of water erosion prove that the Sphinx is at least 10,000 years old?  How were huge 200-ton stone blocks lifted into place to build the Sphinx Temple and Valley Temple?  Famous American psychic Edgar Cayce predicted a hidden room called the Hall of Records beneath the Sphinx.  The seismograph found it.  What can it tell us?  Is there a vanished civilization?  Can the legend of Atlantis be true?

This DVD shared the geological evidence that rocked orthodox history and Egyptology!  Thanks to all who attended.
