Review by Lee Prosser - email@example.com
Stan Gooch is an original thinker and it is evident in this solidly researched book. Gooch's research on paranormal influences is breathtaking in scope.
The fifteen chapters in the book offer a wide range of information. For instance, "Thirteen and the Horned God," "Standing Stones," "The Holy Grail,' "The Land of Women," "Scrying," and "The Christ" are among the many exciting chapters.
"The Land of Women" gives an interesting analysis of the ancient Celts and their women, and goddesses. The insight on communications is remarkable.
Gooch makes a defined observation that is based on fact: The Neanderthals were not destroyed by the younger Cro-Magon culture but were simply incorporated into that culture through the process of interbreeding. This blended the important aspects of both cultures into a workable situation which could be openly shared by both cultures. That this influence can be traced down into the history found among Witches, Kabbalists, the Knights Templar, Rosicrucians, Christianity and Judaism, is a historical discovery that should be considered for its wide-ranging consequences.
Gooch points out that direct descendents of the moon-worshiping Neanderthal are still living in Central Asia today, although they do not physically resemble their ancestors. This influence of Neanderthal occult wisdom remains strong.
Readers will find this a welcome and enjoyable reading challenge, a book to savor for its historical points, possibilities, and truths. Gooch has written an in-depth look at an important subject. Stan Gooch lives in Wales, and is the author of Cities of Dreams.
