The Mayan Calendar and the Yugas: Systems Predicting the Rise and Fall of Civilization

The Mayan Calendar and the Yugas: Systems Predicting the Rise and Fall of Civilization

From ancient times we know of two calendrical systems that have been claimed to be able to predict the rise and fall of civilizations. One is from the West, the Mayan calendar system and another from the East, the Yuga system of India. The two systems are not identical but have significant points in common to the point where it must be asked whether they originally aimed to describe the same reality. This exclusive Ancient Origins Premium webinar with guest author Dr Carl Johan Calleman presents a background to the two systems, and establishes to what extent they actually describe the beginning and evolution of human civilization. Especially at our current time of a potential great shift in human civilization, knowledge about the factors governing the rise and fall of civilization may provide knowledge of critical importance for ourselves. Welcome to a discussion about the two most significant ancient systems aiming to describe this.

Dr Carl Johan Calleman is the author of five books based on the Mayan calendar that have been translated to fifteen languages and his known as the main proponent of the idea that the Mayan calendar reflects the evolution of consciousness. He holds a Ph.D. in Physical Biology from the University of Stockholm. He has also lectured about the Mayan Calendar in more than twenty countries.

Ancient Floods and Pole Shift: Legends of the Underworld and Atlantis

Ancient Floods and Pole Shift: Legends of the Underworld and Atlantis

Ancient Origins guest writer Brad Yoon has written on the theory that the Caribbean Sea was once a dry basin, and might be connected to the ancient legends of flood myths. In this much-requested follow-up Ancient Origins Webinar, Brad delves deeper into how the prehistoric flooding of the Basin may have caused a planetary pole shift, and affected the last ice age —spurring myths, legends, and chronicles of ancient places beneath the sea.

Perhaps we may find that the lost continent of Atlantis has been a part of our collective memory long before Plato, and is a story which has been passed down, generation by generation, over the millennia, in every culture.

Brad Yoon is a software engineer and writer who researches lost civilizations and other ancient mysteries in his spare time. He has presented his work at CPAK 2014 and with Ancient Origins Premium.

Mysterious Depths: Ancient Underworlds, and their Connection to the Prehistoric Caribbean Sea and Atlantis

Mysterious Depths: Ancient Underworlds, and their Connection to the Prehistoric Caribbean Sea and Atlantis

Ancient Origins guest writer Brad Yoon has written on the theory that the Caribbean Sea was once a dry basin, and might be connected to the ancient legends of floods and myths. In this webinar, he connects the dots on the ancient places beyond—underworlds of the living and the dead, such as the Greek Hades, Tartarus, Oceanus, the Mayan Xibalba, and Egyptian Duat.

He raises the possibility of a large expanse of land situated below sea level—not a land below our feet, but a land so conspicuously lower than other lands that it came to be singled out and designated as an “underworld”. Did a dry Caribbean Basin exist in prehistory? Was a catastrophe to change the land of the living into an abode of the dead? Could it be the underworlds that these various cultures across the world speak of are not fictional but are a single real place that existed in the remote past?

Brad Yoon studies the myths of the underworld, compares and contrasts them, to get a clear picture of what this ancient land was like, where it was, how it was created, how it was destroyed, and why we can't see it anymore.

Perhaps we may find that the lost continent of Atlantis has been a part of our collective memory long before Plato, and is a story which has been passed down, generation by generation, over the millennia, in every culture.

Giants On Record: Anomalous Skeletons in the Academic Literature

Giants On Record: Anomalous Skeletons in the Academic Literature

In this webinar Hugh will share his research on the thousands of giant skeletons that have been found in North America and look at the phenomenon based upon the written evidence in the academic record. News reports of giants could be exaggerated or even lies to sell newspapers, but when the academics repeat the same descriptions of oversized, powerful skeletons over a 100 year period in different parts of the country, the study of ‘giantology’ must be taken seriously. Hugh will share some examples of the writings of doctors, professors and heads of major institutions discussing their interaction with giant skeletons, massive jaws and double rows of teeth. 

Hugh Newman is a world explorer, megalithomaniac and author of Earth Grids: The Secret Pattern of Gaia’s Sacred Sites (2008); co-author of Giants On Record: America’s Hidden History, Secrets in the Mounds and the Smithsonian Files with Jim Vieira (2015), and is published in three 'Ancient Origins' e-books. He has been a regular guest on History Channel’s Ancient Aliens and Search for the Lost Giants and organises the annual Megalithomania conferences and tours and co-organises the Origins Conference in London with Andrew Collins. His latest project is a follow up to Giants On Record, investigating giant accounts in the British Isles.

The Mystery of Father Crespi & the Missing Golden Artifacts

The story of Father Crespi is a mysterious and controversial account of a priest in Ecuador involving claims of unknown civilizations, strange golden artifacts, a subterranean cave system containing a metallic library, depictions of strange figures connecting America to Sumeria, symbols depicting an unknown language, evidence of extra-terrestrial contact, and a Vatican conspiracy involving thousands of missing artifacts.

But how much of the story is true? In this Webinar, Ancient Origins’ Co-Founder, Dr Ioannis Syrigos, will talk about his investigation into the Father Crespi puzzle, including his exploration of the mysterious Tayos Caves in Ecuador where some of the artifacts were allegedly found, insights from the Shuar Indians, and his exclusive access to the hidden vaults at the Central Bank of Ecuador containing thousands of Father Crespi’s artifacts.

Dr Syrigos will also share photographs of artifacts never publicly shown before.

How to Mummify Yourself… The Relatively Unknown Practice of Japanese Self-Mummification

In the 1960s, a team of researchers came across numerous mummies enshrined in special temple halls in northern Japan.  Amazingly, they had preserved themselves while still alive, using a procedure virtually unknown to the outside world.  If it were not for their discovery, the techniques used and the reasons behind their suicidal undertaking might have been forever lost.  Join us for a Webinar that describes the individuals who carried out this process, how they succeeded in mummifying themselves, and the incredible reasons behind the act.  With pictures, personal accounts, and scientific and religious explanations to explain this phenomenon, the Webinar will be informative and unique. 

Hosted by Ken Jeremiah, author of Living Buddhas, the only English-language book about auto-mummification.
