The Lost Age of High Knowledge

Keith Hunter has written a fascinating book, based on the work of Bruce Cathie, that relates the earth, the moon, the sun, and the planets, using knowledge from the ancient Sumerian culture. It is Hunter's contention that the celestial bodies in the solar system, including the earth and the moon, are in fact based upon completely harmonious relationships, and that over the eons these relationships have gone subtly wrong. Not only does Hunter explain the ideal relationships between planetary orbits, equatorial circumference, and the length of the year -- and their importance to a more harmonious existence -- but he also explains how these relationships have changed, and why our so-called "modern" civilization has devolved from this ideal state into conflict and war.

Readers familiar with Cathie's work will find "The Lost Age of High Knowledge" much more accessible. Having read most of Cathie's books, which are very dense analyses, I found this book to be much more readable. Hunter, in this book, has clarified much of what I had read (and found confusing) in Cathie's works.

Mr. Hunter has the ability to explain this somewhat esoteric knowledge using clear, modern language, and avoiding confusing jargon. Using simple arithmetic and diagrams, Mr. Hunter explains the knowledge of the ancients; knowledge based upon mathematical harmony. Mr. Hunter shows that if this ancient knowledge were well understood today, our societies would be happy and productive, instead of being riddled with conflict, poverty, disease, and injustice.

This is an important work for those who want to understand why the human race cannot "get its act together." If more people understood the ancient knowledge of harmony, we would be well on our way to a positive and harmonious transformation of our planetary societies.
