A video visit to the Igloo in Grimerica for a Star Myth conversation with Darren & Graham

Thank you to Darren G. and Graham D. for inviting me back to share another visit to the Igloo in the wilds of Grimerica.

We recorded a first: a full two-hour conversation complete with live video which enabled me to provide some visual evidence to support the arguments I was presenting that the world's ancient myths, scriptures and sacred stories from virtually every culture on every inhabited continent and island of our planet earth appear to be founded upon the same system of celestial metaphor, a system so ancient that it was clearly already mature by the time the first known extended texts of ancient Egypt or ancient Mesopotamia were inscribed in stone pyramids and hardened clay tablets.

The video was broadcast live as we recorded it, and the full-length replay is available here on the Grimerica channel on YouTube (consider subscribing, at no charge, in order to receive notification when future videos are released from Grimerica). You can also download the audio-only version, if you'd rather listen while doing something else, by visiting this page (or by searching for Grimerica on iTunes and other podcast sources). This video was recorded on October 11, 2017.

I always enjoy Darren and Graham's unique combination of a relaxed atmosphere plus insightful questions, and I hope that everyone else will enjoy our conversation exploring the connections between the celestial motions and the world's ancient myths.

During this show, we covered some of the following topics -- check out some of the previous posts (linked) for more information:
  • The "celestial language" spoken by the world's ancient myths, corresponding to the heavenly cycles (and using the heavenly cycles to convey profound truths regarding our own journey through this incarnate life).
  • Examples of myths from around the world which can be shown to be based upon specific constellations in the night sky, and the characteristics anciently associated with those constellations (see for instance the section entitled "The Myths" on my main website, Star Myth World, dot com, as well as the section entitled "Video."
  • The constellation-outlining system introduced by H. A. Rey -- and how it is vastly superior to any other known system when it comes to identifying constellations for yourself in the night sky, as well as when it comes to deciphering the celestial language being spoken by the world's ancient myths.
  • The beautiful star-cluster known as the Pleiades, and just a few examples from thousands of possible examples of myths which incorporate the Pleiades (see here, here and here; also here).
  • The evidence that the connection between specific mythical characters and certain constellations was somehow preserved in the formal schools of artwork in western Europe down through the centuries.
  • A series of posts discussing Arjuna and Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita and the wider epic of the Mahabharata (see here, here, and here among others).
  • A series of posts discussing the figure of Doubting Thomas (see here, here, and here among others).
  • A series of posts discussing the concept of your Higher Self (see here, here, and here among others).
  • The ways in which the existence of a world-wide system of celestial metaphor connecting the ancient myths upends the conventional narrative of humanity's early history and points towards the existence of a now-forgotten culture of great spiritual sophistication, predating ancient Egypt and other extremely ancient civilizations by millennia (see for instance here, here and here).
  • Impressions following my trip to the eastern half of the modern state of Oregon in order to view the total solar eclipse of August 2017, during which I need up choosing a site less than five miles from the site Darren went to in order to see the eclipse -- and see also the description of solar eclipse phenomena here.
And remember that all the blog posts are fully searchable, so that you can search for any other concept discussed in the show (or not discussed in the show) and see if it has been discussed in the past.

As always, I believe it is extremely important to do whatever you can to support independent media outlets such as Grimerica. I recently linked to their outstanding September 11 interview with Richard Gage (and also with a member of the Grimerica community who survived the collapse of the towers) in a previous post here. Shows like Grimerica do not take advertising dollars or funding from corporate sponsors, which helps them to maintain their independent voice. Please consider contributing to Grimerica and to other independent media sources when and if it is possible for you to do so.
