Bring back the Sun!
By Gregory Sams

Bring back the Sun!
By Gregory Sams





We are pleased and honored to welcome Gregory Sams as our September 2009 Author of the Month here at grahamhancock.com. Author, health food pioneer and cultural change agent, Gregory Sams' first book 'Uncommon Sense, the State is Out of Date', took chaos theory into a socio-political context. Now, he brings you 'Sun of God', the culmination of 7 years of focus on the subject of solar sentience and its relevance to you, me and everything in creation.

Imagine living in a culture where people spent more time deciding what brand, colour and flavour condom to buy, than they do to considering prospective candidates and the act of sex itself. Something would be out of balance. Yet we live in a culture where most people will have spent more time in their lives contemplating which style of sunglasses to purchase than they will have spent contemplating the most important thing in those lives, the Sun itself. Something is out of balance.

It was once absolutely common to give the Sun a great deal of thought, respect and appreciation. Many of the greatest monuments that survive from ancient civilizations were built to honour the Sun. Yet we are raised with the built-in assumption that ancient people were primitive and uncivilized savages. As modern researchers such as Graham Hancock and Michael Cremo have clearly shown, nothing could be further from the truth. Though in many ways we now enjoy an advanced technology to that that which existed thousands of years ago, it is not so certain that our understanding of the cosmos and our spiritual development have advanced at the same pace.

Many modern researchers have explored what remains of the civilization of ancient Egypt, recognizing the cosmological alignment of ancient pyramids and calculating where their shafts would have originally pointed towards in the night sky. Others have studied the Mayan calendar and been amazed at the understanding it displays of solar and stellar activities taking place tens of thousands of years prior. Tens of thousands make the pilgrimage to Stonehenge every summer solstice to touch and absorb the energy of the hallowed stones of this Celtic monument. We acknowledge our social and scientific debt to the ancient Greeks, whose rediscovered knowledge helped fuel the Renaissance and lift Europe out of the Dark Ages.

Yet as we explore the history of these cultures, we all too easily overlook the one underlying principle common to the Egyptians, Maya, Celts and Greeks, not to mention the Sumerians, the Chaldeans, the Assyrians, the Gnostics, the Khmer, the Norse, the Inca, the Aztec, the natives of South and North America and countless other cultures through the world, including today's Hindu and Shinto religions. This is the recognition that our local star is a conscious entity - a celestial being. It remains one of the most powerful and unspoken taboos of the Western world and one which even modern researchers of the above cultures are often reluctant to breach.

Many of us have finally let go of the Biblical mindset that placed humans on planet Earth as the be all, end all, and raison d'etre of God and the Universe. Since 1975 we have been seeking other intelligences across the galaxy, looking for telltale radio signals, incorporating technology that enlists the brainpower of idle computers throughout the world. Though I quietly came to the realization that there was intelligence in residence at our local star in 1966, I only really "came out" on the subject when the subject of SETI came up. I would feel compelled to point out that this "Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence" was being conducted in complete ignorance of the most intelligent character in the neighbourhood - our local star. And none of those special tools or techniques is required to spot this one - just an open mind that has let go of an old taboo. It should really be called SSLU - the Search for Something Like Us.

Our culture is infused with the notion that the "sun worship" once practiced throughout the world was born out of ignorance. When SETI got me going on the subject, I would often get "are you kidding?" and "who is this crazy man?" looks - just the sort of looks that my brother and I received in the 1960's when introducing people in Britain to the radical freaky notion that what we ate affected our health and well-being. This unfounded assumption came up recently on a Sunday morning spiritual radio programme when I was asked "But they were just primitive then - don't we know better now?" That is an interesting question and I must reply with a question "Is there anything we know today, from the latest in solar science and astronomy, to physics and quantum mechanics, that has any bearing on the issue of solar consciousness?"

We will return to that question later, but first must ask what we know about our own consciousness that would assist us in the evaluation of whether such a phenomenon could be existing elsewhere, whether in bacteria or thousand year-old trees, volcanoes or stars?

What is this stuff that we are forever talking about raising or lowering? What is this quality that distinguishes our complex body with being alive and vital?

What do we know…. about this?

We know that many scientists actually doubt its existence. Since they have no tools with which to weigh it or measure it, and there seems to be no formula that can express consciousness, this group finds no alternative but to deny its existence. They believe consciousness to be an illusion that is constructed by our brain to gain some, as yet undetermined, evolutionary advantage. Some of this "Grand Illusion" camp has a corollary to their belief, which is that human beings have no free will - that every single thing we do or think (every rhyme, each wink and stink) was somehow pre-determined by the arrangement of particles immediately after the Big Bang.

For scientists who do acknowledge the existence of consciousness it was assumed, until very recently, that human beings were the only vessel that it could possibly inhabit. Nothing else was deemed to be aware of its own existence, or functioning on anything other than the level of a biological machine driven by nothing more than the need to propagate the species. Descartes had a lot to do with this, but now there is debate going on, as some scientists devise tests for consciousness, such as recognizing your self in the mirror, or playing for no apparent reason other than to have fun. This camp is arguing that orang-utans and dolphins and a handful of other species, mainly primates, might just share this rare facility.

But scientists are not getting very far, perhaps not trying very hard, in understanding what consciousness is or from whence it arises. And that isn't surprising, considering what a tricky word it is to define - right up there with "God" and "infinity". There is no accepted standard definition for consciousness. Mystics and philosophers have devoted entire books to it or summed it up with the two words "consciousness is."

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:


Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:




Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
