Discussing the end, the cyclical nature of civilization and how fragile western society is with its specialization and how intelligence seems to be going down, not up. We talk about inventions of a mind induced by so called vision drugs and various theories on when man first came into contact with psilocybin mushrooms, Amanita Muscaria and Soma. They talk about plants and substances that might have helped to spark the mind of ancient man. Carrying the discussion over to the preservation of the shamanic tradition, gnosis, knowledge and we discuss the Gnostics, Cathars, Knights Templar leading into Freemasonry, Rosicrucian's and we get Graham's take on the fruits of these societies and secret societies. What is the destiny of America, "The New Atlantis", who were the founding fathers and what was their intention? Discuss so called "sacred cities" and "sacred faith" and how ancient Egyptian civilization seem to have been supplanted around the world. Talk about alignments of monuments and buildings to the stars in the heaven. We ask if this philosophy can be found in modern times, with cities such as Astana in Kashakztan that have pyramids and spectacular monuments that seem to stem from the same tradition and religious beliefs. The philosophy of some of the architects and we also get Graham's take on the alien intervention theory of people such as Däniken, Zithin, Lloyd Pye and others. Don't miss this exciting second hour.
