I received the following email a few days ago through the ASNT site and so I thought that I would pass the information along (and am glad to do so). Personally, I will do my very best to attend this conference. What the writer has to say in the email regarding the significance of ancient stellar knowledge of civilizations long gone is highly relevant and timely, perhaps more now than ever before, to the astrology we as practitioners are working with today, both as a science and an art. Dr. Schoch is one of the best and brightest in this field and the ancient stellar science ties right in to his discoveries. Thadd:::SignsInLife
Dear Governing Members of the Astrological Society of North Texas,
I’m writing to inform you of a wonderful upcoming Austin, Texas event, with the hope that you might kindly forward this information to members of your society (and perhaps to friends as well). While the focus of the event is not specifically astrological in nature, I do believe it connects to our research and that members of your organization might be very interested in knowing about it.[T]he internationally renowned geologist Dr. Robert M. Schoch, will be speaking about his research on ancient civilizations at the Thompson Conference Center at the University of Texas at Austin on September 27th-28th. In a nutshell, [Dr. Schoch]’s work demonstrates that high culture and advanced civilization go back much further in time, by at least thousands of years, than generally acknowledged. Of course, we astrologers know that our practice connects directly to the concept of advanced knowledge in antiquity. So, with the hope that this upcoming event will interest you, and with appreciation for your kind consideration, here is a link to the event’s website:
A bit more detail:
In the early 1990s, Dr. Schoch stunned the world with his revolutionary research that recast the date of the Great Sphinx of Egypt to a period thousands of years earlier than its standard attribution. In demonstrating that the leonine monument has been heavily eroded by water despite the fact that its location on the edge of the Sahara has endured hyper-arid climactic conditions for the past 5,000 years, Dr. Schoch revealed to the world that mankind’s history is greater and older than previously believed. His latest research, put forth in his newest book, “Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future,” points to the astronomical cause of the demise of antediluvian civilizations, as well as the scientific and archaeological evidence that supports his conclusions.
The seminar at the Thompson Conference Center will focus primarily on Dr. Schoch’s research into ancient cultures. However it is important to point out that the final chapter of “Forgotten Civilization” begins with a discussion of the ancient concept “as above, so below” and goes on to review cutting edge new science that reinforces the truth and validity of astrology! These are topics that Dr. Schoch will be happy to discuss during the workshop if there are astrologers or other interested persons in attendance.
Thank you very much for your time. Below are a few links for easy reference.
