brief is the practical search for the truth, individual responsibility,
the pursuit of excellence, and good behaviour in all aspects
of our lives.
what we have been taught or told about religion, politics and
history does not make much sense, yet these subjects tend to
dominate, for better or worse, our lives and the lives of all
those who share this overcrowded planet with us.
Plato said that; "Good people do not need laws and bad
people will break them anyway". The simple message is the
need for more good people and not more laws.
human trends of perverse over specialisation, ignorance accompanied
by intolerance, and concepts presented by scholars as truths
to uncritical men and women, all threaten stability and harmony.
160 million people have died directly and indirectly in the
last 100 years in attempts to implement equality or racial and
or tribalism has become the harbinger of hate and distrust leading
to mindless confrontation, wars and human misery beyond belief.
Brotherhood and unity have been cast aside. Life itself has
become a raft of speculation and contrived public relations.
Good multidisciplinary skills do however exist and a weight
of solid and new scientific evidence now supports the thesis
that there was a Golden Age administered within a lost advanced
civilization and that all people on this planet have the same
common roots and ancestors.

beliefs and differences which divide us can be tracked back
to this common origin. Far better knowledge of our history will
therefore encourage the philosophy and psychology within the
few good men and women needed for good to triumph over evil.
Travel back with us in time to see what can be unlearned and
relearned from past knowledge and discover the wisdom, kindness
and harmony, which can enrich our lives and through our efforts
and resolve, the lives of all living things on our planet.

Genius of the Few ends with the chapter Unity of Truth,
which links together philosophy and religion from around the
world to demonstrate the common threads of origin and a single
basic truth. However as a postscript to this book, religion
as it is commonly practised, would seem to be a relatively recent
development based loosely on our historical roots.

by all students of the human origin and human relations subjects
in conjunction with The Genius of The Few and The
BC an agricultural revolution took place which has had far reaching
consequences for mankind and the planet. Up to this time man
had learned to subsist with great awareness on a wide diversity
of plants and animal foods. The change from hunter gatherer
and minor horticulturist to the more sedentary farming of a
smaller range of domesticated plants and animals took place
at many sites over a time scale of under 100 years. A stable
population perhaps constrained by limited resources was set
to change and grow rapidly.
of this book raises the important possibility of only two original
independent farming centres in the area centred on Lebanon
and in the Huanghe and Yangzi river basins in China. It also
reaches the conclusion that diffusion was the dominant process
by which farming became established largely replacing or assimulating
most pre-existing hunter gatherers.
Reach your own conclusions as to whether the case is remade
and proven for a single dominant process of 'Biblcal' diffusion
from Southern Lebanon upwards and around the planet from around
that it is necessary to consider the probability that an existing
'comprehensive and intensive farming package' was delivered
around 8,000 BC in the Southern Lebanon by the Shining Ones.

that this distinct species had already cross bred with homo
sapiens to produce sapiens sapiens at least as early as 50,000
BC.This is the earliest date for a sapiens sapiens burial in

been preceded by earlier more localised diffusions, severely
limited by the climatic factors of the period, but instigated
by the same distinct advanced group.
