Overview

Ancient Myths, Ancient Wisdom: Recovering humanity's forgotten inheritance through Celestial Mythology by David Warner Mathisen

The world's ancient myths, scriptures and sacred stories, from virtually every culture on every inhabited contient -- and all the islands -- can be shown to be founded upon a common system of celestial metaphor, embodying the heavenly cycles of the sun, the moon, the visible planets, and especially the stars and constellations. This common, world-wide system underlies the characters and episodes found in what are commonly called the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, as well as the myths, scriptures, and sacred traditions of ancient Egypt, ancient Mesopotamia, ancient China and Japan, ancient India, ancient Greece and Rome, other parts of Europe including Scandinavia, Africa, the Americas, the Pacific, and Australia. The discovery that all these ancient traditions, from all these cultures spread literally around the world, has startling implications for our understanding of humanity's ancient history -- and for our understanding of the challenges we face at this critical moment in history, today.

This book is a collection of essays from the first one thousand posts published in the Mathisen Corollary blog between April 2011 and October 2017, grouped chronologically within eight subject categories:

  • Esotericism and the Ancient System
  • Celestial Mechanics and the Heavenly Cycles
  • The Invisible Realm and the Shamanic
  • Star Myths and Astrotheology
  • Self and Higher Self
  • The Inner Connection to the Infinite
  • Humanity's Forgotten History
  • Two Visions

Contains hundreds of diagrams, illustrations, and star charts.
