Scottish engineer Stan Hall (1936 - 2008) was born in Edinburgh and raised in nearby Dunbar. As a nine-year old, newsreels of blitzed cities and concentration camps opened his mind to a vision of two kinds of people in the world - in every sense of the words - Builders and Destroyers!
Parallel with university studies and an interdisciplinary career in building & construction, he explored ancient engineering, civilizations and mytho-history, concluding that South America is the 'Missing Page of Prehistory' and 'Interplanetary Catastrophism' the missing link in the Creation - Evolution controversy.
In 1976 Hall catalysed a landmark expedition to the Cave of the Tayos in Ecuador involving a dozen institutions, joint special forces, and astronaut Neil Armstrong as Honorary President. With a scientific framework installed he later turned to Erich von Däniken's report of a Metal Library allegedly found in the caves by Juan Moricz in the mid-1960s.
So began a personal odyssey to the heart of global enigmas; the Creation process, origins of mankind, the Golden Age of Saturn, the destruction of Atlantis, Ptolemy's lost city of Cattigara, the sudden rise and fall of wonder civilizations and the subliminal 'lemming factor' inherent in the collective consciousness of Mankind, enigmas he found unified by Interplanetary Catastrophism as the missing link of prehistory, part of a chain that now includes the metal library of the vanished South American Empire of Tayhuantinsuyu!
