LINE UP FOR THE
SATURDAY CONFERENCE - NOVEMBER 4TH
Special Guest From the USA *
how old is humanity? What does archaeology tell us? How can it be so wrong? Michael
Cremo - the co-author author of the seminal work Forbidden Archaeology
(1993) and The Hidden History of the Human Race - is one of the foremost
experts on the origins of humanity within the archaeological record. He ably demonstrates
that history is considerably older than we are being told. Moreover, there has
been a conspiracy to cover up facts for over 200 years.
Michael A. Cremo (born 1948) is on the cutting edge of science and culture issues. In the course of a few months time he might be found lecturing at a scientific conference, appearing on a national television show, touring sacred sites in India, or speaking to an alternative science gathering. As he crosses disciplinary and cultural boundaries, he presents to his various audiences a compelling case for negotiating a new consensus on the nature of reality.
He is a member of the History of Science Society, the World Archeological Congress, the Philosophy of Science Association, the European Association of Archaeologists and an associate member of the Bhaktivedanta Institute, specializing in history and philosophy of science.
Besides Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race with Richard L. Thompson (1993), Michael's other books include Divine Nature: A Spiritual Perspective on the Environmental Crisis (1995, co-authored with Mukunda Gosvami, and Forbidden Archeology's Impact: How A Controversial New Book Shocked the Scientific Community and Became an Underground Classic (1998), Human Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin's Theory (2003), and The Forbidden Archeologist: The Atlantis Rising Magazine Columns of Michael A. Cremo. Michael's website is mcremo.com
Lynn Picknett & Clive Prince
The Stargate Conspiracy
Picknett & Clive Prince - The Stargate Conspiracy 2017
The impact of these communications, whatever their true nature, reached the highest echelons of society, finding influence within NASA, JPL, and even within the Star Trek TV series created by Gene Roddenberry. It is story told by Lynn and Clive in their bestselling book The Stargate Conspiracy, published originally in 1999 and recently updated for a new audience. They will bring the Origins 2017 audience the entire story and show how these communications are still having an impact today. Plus they will review the current situation regarding activities on the plateau at Giza.
Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince are science and history writers, who have been working together as a team for over 25 years. They have various bestselling books to their names including The Templar Revelation (1997), which went on to be name checked as a source in Dan Brown's 2003 super seller The Da Vinca Code (it even earned them a cameo role in the movie adaptation of the book!). Their other titles include The Turin Shroud (1994), The Forbidden Universe (2011), The Sion Revelation (2006), The Hermetic Conspiracy (2011) and, of course, The Stargate Conspiracy (1999). Their website is www.picknettprince.com
Alan Butler - Civilization One
A curious baked clay disc unearthed in the ruins of a Cretan palace was the trigger for a quite extaordinary discovery that would gradually enable engineer Alan Butler to reconstruct a remarkable, multi-faceted measuring system adopted originally by the megalithic builders of prehistoric Europe. It encapsulates distance, mass, volume and time, and incredibly the entire system was found to fit perfectly into the mass and dimensions of the Earth. The findings of this extraordinary discovery became the basis of the bestselling book Civilization Onem (2004), co-authored by Alan and Chris Knight, writer with Bob Lomas of The Hiram Key. Yet the book was also the start of a world-wide adventure that continues to rewrite humanity's past even today.
Alan Butler is a British born ex engineer with a lifelong interest in ancient history who became a researcher and writer well over thirty years ago. Alan has worked alone and with co-authors to produce a number of bestselling books related to the origins of society and deep mysteries from the past. In particular his books with Christopher Knight, Civilization One (2004) and Before the Pyramids (2009) have drawn critical acclaim. Alan has travelled the world in his research and to speak at talks and seminars to publicize his extraordinary discoveries. Often appearing on television documentaries Alan Butler continues to further the hypothesis that the origins and ancient past of humanity are dramatically different than orthodoxy would have us believe. Alan lives with his wife Kate on the North East Coast of England.
Newman - Origins of the Giants in Britain
Hugh Newman is a world explorer, megalithomaniac and author of Earth Grids: The Secret Pattern of Gaias Sacred Sites and co-author of Giants On Record Americas Hidden History, Secrets in the Mounds and the Smithsonian Files. He has been a regular guest on History Channels Ancient Aliens and Search for the Lost Giants and has articles published in Atlantis Rising (US), New Dawn (Australia), Nexus (UK) and numerous other publications. As well as organising the Megalithomania conferences and tours, he has spoken at events in the UK, Malta, France, Peru, Egypt, Bosnia and North America. He lives in Glastonbury, England.

Andrew Collins - Meet the Denisovans: The True Founders of Human Civilization
the extraordinary evidence emerging right now to suggest that a newly-discovered
archaic human population known as the Denisovans might have attained advanced
levels of behaviour beyond that even of our own ancestors Andrew Collins finds
out what we know about the achievements, distribution and the impact of their
legacy on our own civilization. In the 2000s human fossil remains were unearthed
in the Denisova Cave within the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia. DNA testing
showed that the bones - two molars and a pinky bone - belonged to a previously
unknown human population today known as the Denisovans. They are now thought to
have inhabited Eastern Eurasia from around 400,000 years down to around 40,000
years ago (and arguably much later stil). During their final years the Denisovans
achieved an advanced level of human behaviour, including the creation of sophisticated
symbolic or non-functional objects including an arm bracelet in bottle-green chloritolite
with a bored hole that can only have been made using a high-speed drill; a bone
needle with an eye for thread, suggesting the manufacture of tailored clothing,
as well as finely finished, pierced ostrich eggshell beads no more than a centimetre
in diameter. In addition to this, fragments of horse bones found inside the Denisova
Cave have suggested that Denisovans domesticated, herded and maybe even rode horses
long before it was thought humanly possible. So what do we really know about these
founders of human civilization?
Andrew Collins is a historical writer living in the United Kingdom. He is the author of more than a dozen books that challenge the way we perceive the past, including From the Ashes of Angels (1996), which establishes that the Watchers of the book of Enoch and the Anunnaki of the Sumerian texts are the memory of a shamanic elite that catalyzed the Neolithic revolution in the Near East at the end of the last ice age; Atlantis in the Caribbean (2016), which tracks down Plato's Atlantean island empire to the Caribbean island of Cuba and the Bahaman archipelago; Tutankhamun: The Exodus Conspiracy (co-authored with Chris Ogilvie Herald, 2002), which reveals the truth behind the discovery of Tutankhamun's famous tomb; The Cygnus Mystery (2006), which shows that the constellation of Cygnus has been universally venerated as the place of first creation and the entrance to the sky world since Paleolithic times; LightQuest (2012), which demonstrates that UFOs are most likely plasma constructs that display sentience, clear intelligence and interactive qualities, and Göbekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (2014), which reveals the role played by Göbekli Tepe in the origins of civilization, and the rise of myths and legends regarding the Watchers of the book of Enoch, the Anunnaki of Mesopotamian mythology.
more on this star and its strange light fluctuations and mathematical patterns
In 2008 Andrew and colleague Nigel Skinner Simpson discovered a previously unrecorded cave complex beneath the pyramids of Giza, which has brought him worldwide acclaim. It is today known as Collins' Cave, the story of which is told in his book Beneath the Pyramids (2009). He is co-organiser of the Origins conferences with Hugh Newman, and is a regular contributor to the TV show Ancient Aliens. Andrew's website is www.andrewcollins.com.
Stone mason, writer, explorer and TV personality Jim Vieira
Jim with his American giants exhibition.
Also from the USA *
Origins welcomes back Jim Vieira, who will deliver a presentation entitled The Search for Edgar Cayce's Lost World. At Origins 2017, he will present his findings based on 30 years of research into the origins of civilization and Homo Sapiens through a comparative analysis of myth, legend, worldwide indigenous oral traditions, religious documents, Freemason, Rosicrucian and Theosophist teachings, the writing of Plato and the wisdom of the great mystics Rudolf Steiner and Edgar Cayce. Astonishingly they all make the same bizarre claims about the past. All the sources propose a supernatural start for our species in the lost continent of Atlantis, a continent who claimed giants and little people as part of its population. Long lived androgynous creator gods were said to have founded our species in this lost world. What is the reality of these claims, and how do they fit into our knowledge of the past. These are the questions addressed by Jim at Origins 2017.
Jim Vieira is a stonemason, author, explorer and host of the History Channel shows -"Search for the Lost Giants" (2014) "Roanoke: Search for the Lost Colony" (2015) and "Return to Roanoke: Search the Seven" (2016). Jim has investigated worldwide ancient stone sites, studied global indigenous oral traditions, religious documents, the readings of the great mystics and the literature of secret societies to form an alternative theory regarding the origins of civilization. A theory almost in perfect alignment with the readings of the famed sleeping prophet, Edgar Cayce.
The Saturday Conference will close with a guided meditation led by Andrew Collins on the star KIC 8462852 and Egypt's Giza Pyramid
Andrew's introduction to the evening meditation lecture will provide an update on the mystery of Tabby's Star, otherwise known as KIC 8462852. He will explain how the star's strange light emissions are broadcasting strange mathematical patterns, invoking ideas of quantum entanglement and panpsychism. The mass meditation at then end of the saturday session will also feature this star and its mysteries.

The venue for the Origins 2013 conference is the plush theatre hall in Steiner House, 35 Park Road, London NW1. It is situated just a short distance from Sherlock Holmes fictional address of 221b Baker Street, which actually exists today (it didn't when Arthur Conan Doyle wrote his Sherlock Holmes stories in the early twentieth century)
|The theatre is in the art style of the futurism movement, and forms part of Steiner House, the home of the Anthroposophical Society. This was founded in 1923 by Rudolf Steiner (1861 - 1925) as "a path of knowledge to guide the spiritual in the human being to the spiritual in the universe", which aptly describes the function today of psychic questing. For Steiner, the society was "an association of people whose will it is to nurture the life of the soul, both in the individual and in human society, on the basis of a true knowledge of the spiritual world". The organisers of the Origins 2013 conference are honoured to have been given special permission to hold the event at this prestigious venue.|
Steiner House is situated at 35 Park Road, London, 5 minutes walk from Baker Street tube station. Just walk to the northern end of Baker Street and turn left onto Park Road. Marylebone station is also close by. For those coming by car, the postcode is NW1 6XT. The nearest car park is Park Road NCP Car Park, 65 Park Rd, Greater London NW1 4SH. Click for directions.
