a deep look at "pre"history,
This review is from: Grid of the Gods: The Aftermath of the Cosmic War and the Physics of the Pyramid Peoples (Paperback)
This book forms what I think of as a trilogy with "Cosmic War" and "Genes, Giants, Monsters and Men". In this book Farrell argues that there is a planetary-wide "Grid" of monumental buildings that was deliberately designed and built with great effort, that this Grid is fundamentally connected to the cosmological processes of creation, and that it affects consciousness itself.
He claims all these sites represent the enormous efforts - over millennia - of two elites (the bad lot do human sacrifice), following some horrific world-wide disaster (which he calls a Cosmic War) to preserve invaluable information - over further millennia - both of an integrated physics and of a worldview, so that it could eventually be recovered.
Farrell's investigations are profound and thorough, as usual. He draws together much overlooked research as well as subtle clues about the huge and prehistoric ruins found worldwide that he repeatedly calls a ruined machine sprawled across the globe.
He starts by addressing the unexpectedly much-bigger explosions than anticipated of the earliest hydrogen-bomb tests. He refers to suppressed material indicating these bombs can open hyper-dimensional gates. He links this to the megalithic and ancient structures, some actually built more than ten thousand years ago and sited on a systematic collection of points on the globe. These structures are related to each other by consistent mathematical and geometrical relationships. Together they form what he perceptively identifies as a Grid around the planet.
Much of the book looks at pyramids. These are actually found all over the planet. While some have only recently been discovered (for example in Bosnia) and others are mainly suppressed (the great pyramids in central China that astonishingly resemble the pyramids in Central America), Farrell focuses on the two best-known ones: at Giza, near the capital of Egypt (which he shows is the centre of the Grid) and at Teotihuacan, near the capital of Mexico.
Their numerous similarities and links to each other are covered in interesting detail. He believes that the biggest pyramids at Giza and Teotihuacan are resonators of the fabric of space-time. He shows how the pyramid complexes can be tied to measurements of vast distances on this world as well as within the solar system, and even to the movements of galaxies, exhibiting an advanced ancient knowledge that equals or perhaps exceeds modern knowledge. The Grid is further linked to religion as well as ancient monetary policy and financial structures. The good elite worked out a beneficial money arrangement and the bloodthirsty bad lot forced a debt-based ponzi scheme on the world, as already covered in Farrell's "Babylon's Banksters".
The first third of the book was an easy and very interesting read. It gradually got more complex and difficult in the second part. I did not really understand the last third, which presumably is intended to be the culmination of the mass of evidence presented in this book. Another reason is that Part 3 is quite mathematical. Also, I suspect from Farrell's other books that I have read (and that I've also asked someone with either a mathematics or a physics higher degree to look through) that Farrell doesn't really understand the maths very well either. There was a sense of conflation and floundering in the explanations.
As Farrell himself states at the start, this book is "inherently and unavoidably technical and speculative". Farrell is a deep thinker and an excellent researcher, but I am not convinced he really understands his subject, even though his books show he has invested a good part of his life in investigating pyramids, hidden physics, advanced (Nazi) technology and much else that has been suppressed. Whether it is that he himself doesn't understand clearly enough, or that he is unable to explain it very well, or I just don't understand, there is plenty in this book that make it well worth a read anyway, like most of his books.
Even if, like me, you don't understand it all, there's plenty of food for thought. I would also suggest Wilcock's "The Source Field Investigations", an easier read that somehow ties in with the information in this book, as well as (if you've missed them) Hancock's earlier books like "Fingerprints of the Gods" and "The Message of the Sphinx".
