Dissident intellectual Michael Cremo discussed his continuing work in forbidden archaeology - artifacts and discoveries that don't fit into the conventional timelines and theories in academic and scientific communities. He also spoke about his theory of 'Human Devolution,' and his study of Vedic scriptures. We are currently in the Vedic cosmological cycle called Kali-yuga, which incorporates both catastrophes, as well as enlightenment, he noted.

Ancient Sanskrit material refers to humans existing for millions of years, and this led Cremo to seek out physical evidence to support the idea of extreme human antiquity. Among the evidence he found were metallic grooved spheres uncovered in South African mines, that seemed to be manmade, yet were in strata that dated them back some two billion years. Cremo speculated that the spheres might have been game pieces from that era. He also cited a case in Oklahoma from the 1920s when miners went down about two miles and found a solid polished wall-- the depth suggested the wall was made some 200 million years ago, he said.

Explaining his theory of devolution, he said "we don't evolve up from matter, as scientists today now believe, but rather we devolve or come down from a position of pure consciousness." However, he thinks this process can be reversed, and that is, in fact, the real purpose of human existence-- to get past material distractions and restore one's consciousness to its original pure state.

Stone Age Engravings Discovered on Ostrich Shells

Long before human communication evolved into incessant tapping on computer keys, people scratched on eggshells.

Don’t laugh—researchers say a cache of ostrich eggshells engraved with geometric designs demonstrates the existence of a symbolic communication system around 60,000 years ago among African hunter-gatherers.

The unusually large sample of 270 engraved eggshell fragments, mostly excavated over the past several years at Diepkloof Rock Shelter in South Africa, displays two standard design patterns, according to a team led by archaeologist Pierre-Jean Texier of the University of Bordeaux 1 in Talence, France. Each pattern enjoyed its own heyday between approximately 65,000 and 55,000 years ago, the investigators report in a paper to be published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Researchers already knew that the Howiesons Poort culture, which engraved the eggshells, engaged in other symbolic practices, such as engraving designs into pieces of pigment, that were considered to have been crucial advances in human behavioral evolution. But the Diepkloof finds represent the first archaeological sample large enough to demonstrate that Stone Age people created design traditions, at least in their engravings, Texier says.

Evidence of intentionally produced holes in several Diepkloof eggshells indicates that ancient people made what amounted to canteens out of them, a practice that researchers have documented among modern hunter-gatherers in southern Africa.

The engraved patterns probably identified the eggshells as the property of certain groups or communities, Texier proposes.

“The Diepkloof engravings were clearly made for visual display and recognized as such by a large audience comprising members of a community, and probably members of related communities,” comments University of Bordeaux 1 archaeologist Francesco d’Errico, who was not involved in the new study.

D’Errico participated in the recent unearthing of 13 pieces of engraved pigment at South Africa’s Blombos Cave dating to between 100,000 and 75,000 years ago. Along with perforated sea shells and other personal ornaments previously excavated in Africa and the Middle East, these discoveries show that items holding symbolic meaning were made more than 60,000 years ago by both modern humans and Neandertals.

Even more exciting, according to archaeologist Curtis Marean of Arizona State University in Tempe, is the presence of drinking spouts in the South African eggshells. Water containers opened a new world of travel across arid regions for ancient people, he notes.

“The ability to carry and store water is a breakthrough technological advance, and here we have excellent evidence for it very early,” Marean says. “Wow!”
