This planet keeps getting weirder by the day. Feel free to post your thoughts - if you still have any.

Quote of the Day:

...since 9/11, we’ve become “The United States of Fighting Terrorism.”... What does that mean? This: 9/11 has made us stupid. I honor, and weep for, all those murdered on that day. But our reaction to 9/11 — mine included — has knocked America completely out of balance, and it is time to get things right again.

Thomas L. Friedman, in his Sept. 30th op-ed '9/11 Is Over'.

God's Gold on History Channel

The History Channel series "Digging for the Truth" has a two-part feature in October on the topics explored in Dr Sean Kingsley's book God's Gold (Amazon US and UK):

Host Hunter Ellis ventures on a world-exclusive search for the priceless golden artifacts of Jerusalem's Temple--lost since the Romans looted them almost 2000 years ago. From Jerusalem, to Rome, to North Africa, Turkey, and--finally--back to Israel, we'll follow a trail of clues to uncover the final hiding place of the most priceless treasures of the Jewish faith.

As many of you would know, we interviewed Sean here on TDG back in July about the book and his other interests, so if you're new to the topic, the interview is probably a good place to start.

I'm baaa--aaccck. Give me a few moments to get myself sorted, then hopefully it will be full steam ahead. Big thanks to Rick for stepping up to the plate...

Quote of the Day:

All of us are apt to get a little desiccated if we don't make a point of holding on to the delights of art and music and landscape. It's very easy to become preoccupied with theorizing and the activities of daily living and stop noticing the beauties of the world.

While Greg's away, we mice can play!

Quote of the Day:

“Better than the surrealists, though, is good old Nicholas Roerich, whose joint at Riverside Drive and 103rd Street is one of my shrines in the pest zone. There is something in his handling of perspective and atmosphere which to me suggests other dimensions and alien orders of being—or at least, the gateways leading to such. Those fantastic carven stones in lonely upland deserts—those ominous, almost sentient, lines of jagged pinnacles—and above all, those curious cubical edifices clinging to precipitous slopes and edging upward to forbidden needle-like peaks!”

H.P. Lovecraft, March 1937.

The Great Pyramid -- new revelations

The Giza Pyramids, and specifically the famous one with the shafts, will be the centre of controversy again. The very spry 80-something-year-old Zecharia Sitchin has released a new book about a secret chamber in the Great Pyramid -- and he has explosive claims of photographs to prove it. Journeys to the Mythical Past (Amazon US or UK) is available early October. He's very tight-lipped about his source, so we may have to wait for the book. Gnostic adventurer Philip Gardiner also has a new book, Gateways to the Other World (Amazon). Philip writes about a growing number of disgruntled academics and eminent Egyptologists who disagree with the tomb theory enforced by the supreme rulers of the Giza Plateau. Incidentally, there's still no word from Zahi Hawass when the next robot expedition into the shafts of the Great Pyramid will be televised live on FOX. So the timing of Sitchin and Gardiner's latest books will make things very interesting.

This is classic Daily Grail, I feel young again!

The Egypt Code, by our old mate Robert Bauval, deserves a plug too (Amazon UK only unfortunately). Greg wrote a review for TDG and he also interviewed Rob for Sub Rosa #6. It's a book that deserves serious academic interest, not ridicule and silence.
