The Great Forgetting

Those people that lived before us were just a precursor to us. They weren’t important.”

COLONisation, the most insidious, covert conSPIRITcy & “virus” known to humankind. 10,OOO years of contamiNATIONS & ALIENations.

“Palaeontology exposed the Great Forgetting. Palaeontology made it clear that mankind had not arrived on Planet Earth when civilisation emerged. We had lived for a very long time, millions of years in fact, in a completely different way. Mankind hadn’t fallen from the natural state into primitive living. That was how we began.

“Looking back on it one could assume that the exposure of the Great Forgetting would have been a momentous discovery. It should have shook the very foundations of our way of thinking, the very foundations of our culture. One could have assumed that this would have led to some fundamental changes about who we are and how we should live.

“But it didn’t. The Great Forgetting just got explained away. Instead of admitting that two very different and legitimate ways of living had been adopted by mankind in his history the thinkers of the 19th Century came up with this: man may have been born into this world as a primitive savage but he was destined to become a civilisation builder.

“In essence they said: “Who cares that we didn’t arrive as a civilisation builder. It was our destiny to become a civilisation builder. Now that we are here who cares what went before us. Those people that lived before us were just a precursor to us. They weren’t important.”
