5.0 out of 5 stars A New "Heads Up" for the Modern World, 27 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The 12th Planet: Book One of the Earth Chronicles (Mass Market Paperback)
I first read the author's book nearly twenty years ago. I was heartily impressed by the scholarship, and it opened my eyes to the whole civilization that existed before Biblical times. Grand! I spent the next twenty years pursuing various pathways to "flesh-out" my views on his extraterrestrial conclusions (which should be kept separate from his in-depth evidence that "something odd" went on about that time). Very few other books have galvanized not only my attention but my sustained action. Highly recommended, though keep the evidence compartmentalized from the conclusions.
What Mr. Sitchin details is a group of beings that have a "superset" of abilities to our own, at least as of many thousands of years ago. The author seems to restrict these beings to being merely of advanced technology, but purely physical. This leads directly to his extraterrestrial conclusions. Personally, I believe the situation is more mixed-dimensional than that.
Another charm of Mr. Sitchin's book is that it invites us to view the world from a "perhaps we are not the top of the food chain" perspective. For instance, the Tigris-Euphrates area is now effectively closed off from the mass of archeologists. It is this possibility, that they may in some way still be here (remember, they may be effectively immortal), that makes this book so highly influential. There is something that we as a species are not yet "getting," and Mr. Sitchin (among many other researchers) is laying a groundwork. Thanks.
