Graham Hancock in New York City: "Elves, Aliens, Angels and Ayahuasca"
"Elves, Aliens, Angels and Ayahuasca: Parallel Realms and the Mysteries of the Vine of the Dead." ( Approx. 1 hour 15 mins, followed by Q & A and autograph session)
Judging from the abundant evidence of ancient cave art from all parts of the world, encounters with aliens and UFO's are nothing new. Humanity has been visited, taught and nurtured by non-terrestrial beings for at least 35,000 years, construing them according to different cultural frameworks as "spirits", "elves" or "fairies", "angels" or even "demons", and most recently as "aliens".
The same beings and vehicles depicted in the cave art also occur in the much more recent art of surviving shamanistic peoples still living today in remote regions such as the Kalahari and the Amazon jungle. Even more mysteriously, similar experiences and imagery are reported by Western lab volunteers, placed experimentally under the influence of hallucinogens such as DMT, psilocybin, mescaline and LSD.
The growing popularity in the West of the Amazonian visionary brew Ayahuasaca (where the active ingredient is DMT) has opened up these experiences of parallel realms and their inhabitants to an ever-growing constituency of North Americans and Europeans. The common factor, which is also fundamental to all forms of shamanism, appears to be altered states of consciousness and, crucially, this does not suggest that these experiences are in any way "unreal."
On the contrary the evidence supports the hypothesis that in deeply altered states of consciousness the receiver wavelength of the brain is altered to allow us to tune into and interact with beings from other levels and dimensions of reality. These beings, Hancock argues, are the ancient teachers of mankind.
Though much of modern civilization is in a state of rigid denial the fact is that they are still very much in contact with us today. These contacts, and how we as a society react to them - are as fundamental to the future of our species now as they were 35,000 years ago.
Hancock's new book, 'Entangled: The Eater of Souls'features these topics and more in the dazzling start to an epic adventure. Two brave young women living at opposite ends of history are brought together by supernatural forces to do battle with a demon who travels through time. The fate of humanity rests in their hands...
Graham Hancock, author of 'Fingerprints of the Gods,' 'Supernatural,' 'The Sign and the Seal,' 'Underworld' and other bestselling investigations of historical mysteries, brilliantly displays the full scope of his knowledge, intelligence and imagination to propel a fantasy adventure
like nothing else preceding it.
Recognized as an unconventional thinker who raises fascinating questions about humanity's history and prehistory, Hancock offers a controversial challenge to the entrenched views of orthodox scholars. Written with the same page-turning appeal that has made his non-fiction so popular, 'Entangled' is his first novel.
Hancock's books have sold more than five million copies, have been translated into 27 languages, and include five No. 1 bestsellers. His public lectures and TV appearances, including the three-hour Channel 4 TV/Learning Channel co-productions, Quest For The Lost Civilization and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age, have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions worldwide
