Researcher and author Michael Cremo explores forbidden archaeology and human origins, including artifacts and discoveries that don't fit into conventional timelines, as well as the integration of science and spirit. In the first half, he discussed his continuing work examining discoveries around the world, including recent revelations of Homo Naledi (skull pictured above). Homo Naledi is a type of hominin-- a species related to human beings, and the first fossils of them were found in a cave in South Africa in 2013. While they have brains that are only one-third the size of modern humans, they deliberately buried their dead in a possible ritual that used symbols. The Naledi's burials preceded human burials by 100,000 years, Cremo cited, adding that intelligence may not relate entirely to brain size.
The Naledi lived about 330,000 years ago to 230,000 years ago, which likely means that "these small-brained creatures were co-existing with humans like us for vast periods of time," as well as the Neanderthals and Denisovans, he noted. Cremo had proposed such notions in his 'Forbidden Archaeology' works some years ago, and now modern science has come around to his 'co-existence' view. The Homo Naledi were small beings with arms that were adapted for life in the trees, he noted. On the possibility of extreme human antiquity, he pointed out that there is a kind of "knowledge filtration" so that the facts revealed only fit the current paradigm. "I think there's quite a bit more that remains to be uncovered," he remarked, not just in archaeology but also in the UFO field and in the phenomena of consciousness.
Dr. Robert Davis is an internationally recognized scientist with a Ph.D. in sensory neurosciences from Ohio State University and has served as a professor for over thirty years. In the latter half, he spoke about spiritually transformative experiences (STEs), which include such things as NDEs, interactions with UAP and non-human intelligences, psychoactive effects from drugs, Kundalini awakenings, and more. STEs generally involve a sense of unity between someone's inner self and outer self, strong positive emotions, and a transcendence of space and time, he explained. These experiences can sometimes defy language and transform a person's life in various ways, he added.
Many of the STEs may include encounters with non-human entities, he revealed. Davis is particularly fascinated by near-death experiences (NDEs) when individuals receive information they could otherwise not have obtained, and then it's verified once they return to their bodies. For instance, Eben Alexander talked about meeting his deceased sister during his NDE-- a sister he didn't know he had, yet his parents later confirmed that she had existed. Davis announced an upcoming documentary project he is working on called "The Consciousness Connection." More info here.
During the last half-hour, a replay from 2011 with author Brad Steiger discussing alien mysteries was featured.
