SnakeBytes #005: Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving to all our listeners in the US! Having just arrived back from the EarthKeepers Arklantis conference, and with holidays and family stuff tomorrow, we couldn't do a full show, so we did half of one. This SnakeByte is one hour of talk about the conference, listener emails, and a bunch of really great articles on the ScanPyramids project, new ancient sites discovered in Turkey(how apropos), a weird space sickness, and other interesting stuff, with our usual ridiculous commentary from the nickel seats.

Episode #123: Serpent in the Sky - Part 2

We continue our deep-dive into John Anthony West's excellent work, "Serpent in the Sky". In this episode, we finish with the main body of the book, but there are three appendices regarding the Sphinx, each written later in time as things developed. We are able to get through the first one, and partway through the second(which is about the arrival on scene of Dr. Robert Schoch), but even though we went a bit long, we weren't able to finish it or get to the third.

So the next episode will have the conclusion to this series.

Episode #122: Serpent in the Sky - Part 1

After completing our three-part deep dive into Christopher Dunn's "Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt", which was a very technical look at evidence for advanced engineering in Egypt, we thought it only fitting to dive right in to John Anthony West's excellent book, "Serpent in the Sky", which is another look at evidence of advanced concepts in ancient Egypt, only this time in a much more philosophical, metaphysical, and mathematical way.

Unlike Dunn's book, "Serpent in the Sky" is not interwoven around a travel narrative, and is also full of rather deep philosophical and esoteric concepts, which makes it more difficult to "synthesize" for a podcast, but we are going to do our best. This is part one of the attempt.

Episode #121: Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt - Part 3

We conclude our deep dive into Christopher Dunn's excellent book, "Lost Technologies of Ancient Egypt" in this final episode of a three-part series by looking at Dunn's work and observations in Dendera, at the Temple of Hathor, and the ultra-precise machining evidence there. We also read some of his quotes from Flinders Petrie, the "father" of Egyptology, about the evidence for anomalous cutting of very hard stones in ancient Egypt.

And we conclude with a reading of part of Chris' conclusion of his book, where he lays it all out and basically says the standard model is wrong, whoever built these monuments and carved these objects had machine tools, and more importantly, machine-guided tools.
