Product Description

Synopsis

A number of long standing beliefs and superstitions show how the ideas that dominated the lives of our ancestors still have a powerful influence on us today. The disturbing power attributed to the number thirteen, the positive influence of the number seven and the comfort offered by the admonition 'knock on wood' all betray the enduring presence of our most ancient ancestors: the Neanderthals. Contrary to popular theories, the author maintains that the Neanderthals were not destroyed by the younger Cro-Magnon culture, but were incorporated into the culture through interbreeding. The blending of the disparate influences of the lunar, matriarchal Neanderthals and the solar, patriarchal Cro-Magnons may explain the contradictory impulses and influences that have generated human conflict for millennia. In fact, the author suggests that the caste system in India may have been constructed to utilise the strengths of both lunar and solar cultures and to minimise the conflict between the two. There is evidence that direct descendents of the moon-worshipping, dream-cultivating Neanderthal race are still living in Central Asia today.

While their physical descendants may be almost extinct, the influence of Neanderthal occult wisdom remains strong and can be found throughout history among witches, kabbalists, the Knights Templar, Rosicrucians and even in Christianity.

Format: Paperback
History has shown an inexhaustible capacity for conflict. Its hypnotic pendulum motion is often brilliantly described but rarely explained. Stan Gooch has spent a lifetime understanding the pre-historic dynamics that have impacted on our historic past. This exceptional scientist, psychologist, linguist, philosopher, writer, is one of the few people who has made sense out of the confusion of our inheritance.

The Dream Culture of the Neanderthals is a much appreciated reprint of Guardians of the Ancient Wisdom that first appeared in 1979. In it, Gooch further expounds on the enigmatic pre-history of the Neanderthal people and their cultural legacy that forms the submerged mass to Europe's, tip of the ice burg history.

Essentially, modern people are a dualistic hybrid of two pre-historic species; the older moon worshipping, matriarchal, black Neanderthal and newer sun worshipping, patriarchal, white Cro-Magnon. Gooch reveals Neanderthal's psychic understanding of the moons influence on the menstrual cycle of women, and its direct connection with fertility that resulted in an omnipresent reverence of the blood of life and death; holy blood. Yet we are wonderfully reminded that this is at least 50,000 years BP (before present). No doubt such elemental power doesn't come without sinister overtones of human sacrifice, cannibalism and the drinking of human blood (werewolves and vampires); yet on the positive side of the ledger there is an extraordinary range of intuitive creativity, paranormal phenomena and cosmic understanding.

Many of the iridescent myths and legends that have come down to us evoke a tropical paradise of wonder that finally becomes historic with the Egyptians, Minoans, Greeks and Celts. Here is a sample of what you should let yourself in for...

All right but a bit disappointed as it fails to go in-depth about the Dream Culture of the Neanderthals as I expected it to concentrate on.
Understandably, it was written some time ago, BEFORE the latest findings on white Europeans having four per cent of Neanderthal DNA and also the teeth/jaws findings of the Christian Dentist from USA who has discovered that the N's lived for 300 years and not just an average of 30 years! Some bright spark researcher /writer needs to amalgamate all the findings into one book that defines the N's as they really were and then we wouldn't need to buy three or four books just to get all the relevant information.
Obviously not Gooch's fault as he did not have all the facts when he wrote this book. Especially as he writes that folk from Africa and Asia have Neanderthal DNA - when latest research says that they do NOT!

Ordered this book over 4 weeks ago and it is still not sent from Amazon, if you want this book sooner than this, order from somewhere else. It does say "Usually dispatched within 2 to 4 weeks" but I am still waiting. Hopefully I will be able to give a proper review of this book very soon.
