For example: The top blocks of the Egyptian pyramids weigh more than the ones on the bottom. For some reason the Egyptians used the heavier blocks on the top, where they would have been more difficult to place. The best theory to explain this is that that ancient culture could somehow levitate huge ton-sized stone blocks. Indeed, the 5000 year old Vedic India texts give similar accounts.
The book is very well written. It kept my interest like only a few rare other books do. I would recommend this book to anyone with even the slightest interest in history, anthropology, or ancient civilizations. Highly recommended.
Particularly, India's Vedic texts challenge our pride and conceptions. The sages of India's lost past delighted in knowledge of the nonmaterial. But they testify that they also knew how to produce material benefits without industry. Dare
we consider that the subcontinent of India, thousands of years ago, was the center of the greatest spiritual wisdom and mystical technology that the Earth has seen?
The India of remote antiquity may surface as the greatest find in the new millennium. Searching for Vedic India reviews
the latest research from both mainstream and independent sources. Most importantly, it unfolds the ancient answers to the
modern riddles of consciousness, reincarnation, extraterrestrial contact, and spiritual dimensions beyond the laws of time and space.

I've read it once but to get a good grasp on the information presented here would deserve a thorough study.
There's plenty of material here to keep even the most stodgy intellectual type of person entertained and amazed - what to speak of its potential for people who have a taste for engaging others in stimulating discussion.
Get this book while you can. You won't regret it.
