Review

'Time Stands Still is a call for and example of the revitalising needed in several areas of science today ... Time Stands Still is a good example of interdisciplinary research. With its fine photographs and strong Platonic insights it is also a good encouragement for further observation-participation and meditation at our ancient sites!' -- Archetype 'This book is one of the classics of new antiquarian literature, and the reissue, with an update, is welcome ... Informed by western and Indian classical, this book provides an argument for the sacred nature of the inspiration behind megalithic culture. Fascinating and inspirational throughout, it is an antidote to the view that science is inherently anti-metaphysical.' -- Northern Earth, Winter 2007 'As an archaeological book, it tries to sympathetically comprehend the megalithic mind and the feats of cosmic architectural orientation achieved in an age without written words or numbers. It aims explicitly to understand the builders of the stone circles on their own terms and begins to explore what kind of knowledge they were using ... It is however more than a book about stones: it strives to rediscover the wisdom stream that underlay the mathematical, geometric, and cosmic architecture embodied in the stone circles and sculpted into stone figures. It is a diverse and interdisciplinary study using anthropology, psychology, mythology, architecture, linguistics, philosophy and numerology.' --Alexander Murrell, New View 'Critchlow's book can help us to regain an understanding of a deeper reality ... it is good to have this outstanding book in print again.' -- Caduceus, Autumn 2007 'Beautifully illustrated' -- Scientific and Medical Network Review, Summer 2007 'A revised publication of a seminal book. Brilliant!' -- Nexus Magazine, December 2007

Synopsis

Keith Critchlow, an internationally-renowned scholar, has studied a wide range of Neolithic artefacts. In "Time Stands Still", he adopts a technique of cross-cultural comparison to uncover some previously unknown characteristics of the Neolithic people. He takes ancient temple-building manuals from Indian Vedic sources, for example, and applies them to British sites - with fascinating results. He examines Chinese pictographs for evidence of sighting instruments and scientific tools. Perhaps most significantly, he offers evidence that stone-carved spheres with regular mathematical symmetries, found in Scotland, pre-date Plato's writings on geometric figures by more than a thousand years. The remarkable findings of this groundbreaking book are just as important today as when the book was first published.
