John Anthony West and Laird Scranton on Ancient Cultures and Reality - April 28, 2015

We sat down with Laird Scranton and John Anthony West at John's home to talk about a whole array of things, starting with what started them on their paths of research, moving into some concepts of reality, Egypt (of course), lost civilizations, and much more. We also discuss the latest incident with Graham Hancock and Zahi Hawass, which if you missed it, Graham recaps here. Laird also drops some bombshells about his upcoming work near the end. We are very grateful to have been able to sit down with both of them, and for John's extensive hospitality. It really was an honor to be able to sit and pick their brains for a few hours.

John Anthony West (born 1932 in New York) is an American author, lecturer, guide and a proponent of Sphinx water erosion hypothesis in geology.

Influenced by R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, in 1993 his work with Robert M. Schoch, a geologist and associate professor of natural science at the College of General Studies at Boston University was presented by Charlton Heston in a NBC special called “The Mystery of the Sphinx” that won West a News & Documentary Emmy Award for Best Research and a nomination for Best Documentary. The documentary contends that the main type of weathering evident on the Great Sphinx and surrounding enclosure walls could only have been caused by prolonged and extensive rainfall during the time period from 10,000 to 5000 BCE and was carved out of limestone bedrock by an ancient advanced culture (such as the Heavy Neolithic Qaraoun culture). This challenged the conventional dating of the carving of the statue circa 2500 BCE. West suggested that the Sphinx may be over twice as old as originally determined, whereas Schoch made a more conservative determination of between 5000 and 7000 BCE.

Point of Origin by Laird Scranton (2015)

Point of Origin: Gobekli Tepe and the Spiritual Matrix for the World's Cosmologies by Laird Scranton is one hell of a deep exploration of our ancient past. Laird takes a path no one else has tread with this material, he makes connections in the symbolism, cosmology, myths, and more of various different cultures, and shows their commonality in the ancient path. The more he explores this, the more connections become relevant. He can demonstrate, pretty clearly, that various cultures around the world all share a common group of symbols and language. These relate to cosmology and science. These were civilizing factors, that over time have become distorted. Laird argues that the Dogon tribe have one of the most pure forms of this teaching. There are also connections to reality, how they see the world and creation, multiple dimensions, the structure of matter, and what else may be out there. The first part of the book covers Laird's previous work. There is some new material covered as well, but it is necessary for anyone who hasn't read the previous books. Then he gets into Gobekli Tepe, and how it may represent a center from where all these different cultures diverge. Or one of them, anyways. This book is very deep in the material it covers, and very unique in so many ways. Laird Scranton stands alone in this work, he has brilliantly deciphered evidence of something very important in our distant past. The meaning of which is profound. A must read.

Laird Scranton on Point of Origin - March 21, 2015

GobekliLiardLaird Scranton joins us to talk about his latest book, Point of Origin. This is the fifth in his series of books, tracing the true origins of civilization through symbols and language. Each book is more fascinating than the last, and no one is doing the work Laird is doing! This is a very deep conversation at points. Laird Scranton is an independent software designer from Albany, New York who writes about ancient mysteries, cosmology and language. His work includes articles published in the University of Chicago's Anthropology News academic journal, in Temple University's Encyclopedia of African Religion, and in the Vassar Quarterly Magazine. His book "The Science of the Dogon" was taught at Colgate University under the title "Hidden Meanings: A Study of the Founding Symbols of Civilization."

China's Cosmological Pre-History by Laird Scranton (2014)

China's Cosmological Prehistory; The Sophisticated Science Encoded in Civilization's Earliest Symbols is the fourth in a series by Laird Scranton. With each book, the work he lays out becomes more and more intriguing. In the past he has shown connections between the Dogon Tribe, Egypt, ancient Hebrew texts, and India and Tibet. Laird works with the symbols. It's not always the most exciting work, but the implications are important. In looking at the oldest versions of glyphs and symbols, Laird reveals that so many of these ancient cultures have similarities that can not be put down to mere coincidence. Often the symbols and language have a dual meaning that is not instinctive, and yet he finds that dual meaning crossing ancient cultures. The structures of the stupa and yurt across cultures seem to contain similar ideas. In the end it all suggests one master culture whose ideas were dispersed across the world at some point in great antiquity. Whether that is due to a culture disintegrating due to natural disaster, and the survivors retaining some of the knowledge and language, or whether it was taught to them, the connections are there, and they are deep in the past. Laird is set to continue this work in his next book, Point of Origin

Interview with Laird Scranton, Author of the Velikovsky Heresies - March 2, 2013

Listen to the Show

Where Did the Road Go? Show Archive 

Laird Scranton is the author of a trilogy of books about the Dogon tribe in Africa. Laird showcases their extensive scientific knowledge and goes far to show that their knowledge is ancient by connecting it to Egyptian and other civilizations symbolic structures. He shows complex ties to Egypt, as well as India. We discuss all of this in the first half of the show, including;

  • Who were the original researchers of the Dogon?
  • The Dogon Creation Story and it's connections to modern science.
  • The role of Sirius in their mythology.
  • The Nummo Fish.
  • Egyptian connections.
  • The dual meaning of symbols.
  • How they retained the purity of their symbolism.
  • Connections to Quantum, String, and Torsion Theory.
After that, we moved on to Laird's latest book, The Velikovsky Heresies. In this work, Laird compares the theories of Immanual Velikovsky, as presented in Worlds in Collision, published back in 1950 with current science and attempts to find if there is anything we have learned in the last 60 years that definitely proves or disproves Velikovsky's theories. Among other things, we discuss;
  • Velikovsky's theory.
  • The scientific world's reaction.
  • What may have happened to Mars.
  • The change in the length of the year.
  • Characteristics of Venus that still resemble that of comets.
  • Why he was attacked and the lengths his attackers went to.
  • Carl Sagan's role.
You can find Laird's books at Inner Traditions and he has an unofficial website at www.LairdScranton.com
