Presents proof that an advanced black African civilization inhabited the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt
• Reveals black Africa to be at the genesis of ancient civilization and the human story
• Examines extensive studies into the lost civilization of the “Star People” by renowned anthropologists, archaeologists, genetic scientists, and cultural historians as well as the authors’ archaeoastronomy and hieroglyphics research
• Deciphers the history behind the mysterious Nabta Playa ceremonial area and its stone calendar circle and megaliths
Relegated to the realm of archaeological heresy, despite a wealth of hard scientific evidence, the theory that an advanced civilization of black Africans settled in the Sahara long before Pharaonic Egypt existed has been dismissed and even condemned by conventional Egyptologists, archaeologists, and the Egyptian government. Uncovering compelling new evidence, Egyptologist Robert Bauval and astrophysicist Thomas Brophy present the anthropological, climatological, archaeological, geological, and genetic research supporting this hugely debated theory of the black African origin of Egyptian civilization.
Building upon extensive studies from the past four decades and their own archaeoastronomical and hieroglyphic research, the authors show how the early black culture known as the Cattle People not only domesticated cattle but also had a sophisticated grasp of astronomy; created plentiful rock art at Gilf Kebir and Gebel Uwainat; had trade routes to the Mediterranean coast, central Africa, and the Sinai; held spiritual and occult ceremonies; and constructed a stone calendar circle and megaliths at the ceremonial site of Nabta Playa reminiscent of Stonehenge, yet much older. Revealing these “Star People” as the true founders of ancient Egyptian civilization, this book completely rewrites the history of world civilization, placing black Africa back in its rightful place at the center of mankind’s origins.
In this ground-breaking book, Egyptologist Robert Bauval and astrophysicist Thomas Brophy uncover the mystery of Imhotep, an ancient Egyptian superstar, pharaonic Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo, and Newton all rolled into one. Based on their research at the Step Pyramid Complex at Saqqara, Bauval and Brophy delve into observational astronomy to “decode” the alignments and other design features of the Step Pyramid Complex, to uncover the true origins and genius of Imhotep. Like a whodunit detective story they follow the clues that take them on an exhilarating magical mystery tour starting at Saqqara, leading them to temples in Upper Egypt and to the stones of Nabta Playa and the black African stargazers who placed them there.
Imhotep the African describes how Imhotep was the ancient link to the birth of modern civilization, restoring him to his proper place at the center of the birthing of Egyptian, and world, civilization.
On a desolate plain in the Egyptian Sahara desert, west of Aswan, there is a very remote prehistoric site called Nabta Playa. There, a recently discovered complex of extremely ancient man-made megalithic structures have baffled the archaeologists who excavated them. An insight into the meaning and use of the megaliths led to a step-by-step sequence of discoveries, verified by measure and calculation, revealing that the megalithic architecture at Nabta Playa is a unified and detailed astrophysical map of truly astonishing accuracy, with no less than staggering implications.Written for the educated general reader, with technical appendices, the discovery of how to decipher the system of megalithic structures is reported with gripping clarity.
“Brilliant important strongly recommended reads at times like a ‘Tom Robbins of physics’.”- Jacquelyn Small, author of Awakening in Time, and Becoming a Practical Mystic”With this book, Thomas Brophy establishes his credentials as a paradigmatist, that rarest of thinkers, whose models of reality not only enhance human understanding of their world, but give form to new historical movements. By integrating several cutting edge paradigms, and by highlighting the role of spirit in the universe, The Mechanism Demands a Mysticism is sure to inform, instruct, entertain, and even inspire its readers.” -Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., former president of the American Psychological Association’s Division of Humanistic Psychology; author of Dream Telepathy.”Integrating the words of many holy people with scientific theories and a study of phenomena, Brophy indicates the limitations of scientific and religious dogmas this kind of integration will become more and more necessary in the next century.”-Hiroshi Motoyama, Ph.D., Litt. D., author of Karma and Reincarnation; Head Priest of Tamamitsu Shinto Shrine, Tokyo.”Well, ‘just a few pages’ has turned into reading the whole thing. Eminently readable and highly entertaining or infotaining. A good book! Never thought of juxtaposing Newton and Basho myself.”-Yasuhiko Kimura, CEO of the University of Science & Philosophy and Director of the Twilight Club/Center for Evolutionary Ethics, former Zen priest.”Your ideas are profound. The Mechanism Demands a Mysticism deserves a broader exposure.”- Jeffrey Mishlove, Ph.D., host of Thinking Allowed, and “Virtual U” Wisdom Radio.”You are opening the eyes of scientists all over. Bravo!”-Judith Orloff, M.D. Board Certified Psychiatrist, author of Second Sight.
The Christmas Code: A New Astronomy of Christmas and how it came from Ancient Egypt, begins by revealing Isaac Newton’s little known study of the original dating of Christmas, and continues to connect the dots back through who the “magi” in the Bible story really were. How they measured the time of their prophecy from the motions of the stars, and passed the information down from Old Testament prophets, and how they discovered their astronomical information from a very ancient great University of Heliopolis, Egypt, is revealed. Clues out in the open in the Bible, the Vatican, great scholars like Newton and the classical Greeks, are synthesized with recent archaeological finds and refined astro-archaeological synthesis to unveil the clear astronomical bases of the Christmas Star in the Bible story, the dating of Christmas, and the reason for the timing of the Christ birth itself. The thread of evidence runs through Thomas G. Brophy’s recent book Black Genesis: The Prehistoric Origins of Ancient Egypt (coauthored with Robert Bauval) all the way back to the very ancient and mysterious site Nabta Playa. A very concise short book/long essay of 11,000 words with 24 images, The Christmas Code is light but scholarly holiday reading, with narrative vignettes.
