GRAHAM HANCOCK is the author of the major international bestsellers The Sign and The Seal, Fingerprints of the Gods, and Heaven’s Mirror. His books have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been translated into 27 languages. His public lectures, radio and TV appearances, including two major TV series for Channel 4 in the UK and The Learning Channel in the US – Quest For The Lost Civilisation and Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age – have put his ideas before audiences of tens of millions. He has become recognised as an unconventional thinker who raises controversial questions about humanity’s past.
Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Hancock’s early years were spent in India, where his father worked as a surgeon. Later he went to school and university in the northern English city of Durham and graduated from Durham University in 1973 with First Class Honours in Sociology. He went on to pursue a career in quality journalism, writing for many of Britain’s leading newspapers including The Times, The Sunday Times, The Independent, and The Guardian. He was co-editor of New Internationalist magazine from 1976-1979 and East Africa correspondent of The Economist from 1981-1983.
In the early 1980’s Hancock’s writing began to move consistently in the direction of books. His first book (Journey Through Pakistan, with photographers Mohamed Amin and Duncan Willetts) was published in 1981. It was followed by Under Ethiopian Skies (1983), co-authored with Richard Pankhurst and photographed by Duncan Willets , Ethiopia: The Challenge of Hunger (1984), and AIDS: The Deadly Epidemic (1986) co-authored with Enver Carim. In 1987 Hancock began work on his widely-acclaimed critique of foreign aid, Lords of Poverty, which was published in 1989. African Ark (with photographers Angela Fisher and Carol Beckwith) was published in 1990.
Hancock’s breakthrough to bestseller status came in 1992 with the publication of The Sign and The Seal, his epic investigation into the mystique and whereabouts today of the lost Ark of the Covenant. ‘Hancock has invented a new genre,’ commented The Guardian, ‘an intellectual whodunit by a do-it-yourself sleuth.’ Fingerprints of the Gods, published in 1995 confirmed Hancock’s growing reputation. Described as ‘one of the intellectual landmarks of the decade’ by the Literary Review, this book has now sold more than three million copies and continues to be in demand all around the world. Subsequent works such as Keeper Of Genesis (The Message of the Sphinx in the US) with co-author Robert Bauval, and Heaven’s Mirror, with photographer Santha Faiia, have also been Number 1 bestsellers, the latter accompanied by Hancock’s three-part television series Quest For the Lost Civilisation.
In 2002 Hancock published Underworld: Flooded Kingdoms of the Ice Age to great critical acclaim, and hosted the accompanying major TV series. This was the culmination of years of research and on-hand dives at ancient underwater ruins. Arguing that many of the clues to the origin of civilization lay underwater, on coastal regions once above water but flooded at the end of the last Ice age, Underworld offered tangible archaeological evidence that myths and legends of ancient floods were not to be dismissed out of hand.
Graham’s next venture Talisman: Sacred Cities, Secret Faith, co-authored by Robert Bauval, was published in 2004. This work, a decade in preparation, returns to the themes last dealt with in Keeper Of Genesis, seeking further evidence for the continuation of a secret astronomical cult into modern times. It is a roller-coaster intellectual journey through the back streets and rat runs of history to uncover the traces in architecture and monuments of a secret religion that has shaped the world.
In 2005 Graham published Supernatural: Meetings with The Ancient Teachers of Mankind, an investigation of shamanism and the origins of religion. This controversial book suggests that experiences in altered states of consciousness have played a fundamental role in the evolution of human culture, and that other realities – indeed parallel worlds – surround us all the time but are not normally accessible to our senses.
While researching Supernatural Hancock travelled to the Amazon to drink visionary brew Ayahuasca – the Vine of Souls – used by shamans for more than 4000 years. It was his experiences with the vine lead to his latest work, Entangled. Written with the same page-turning appeal that has made his non-fiction so popular Entangled is his first novel. It tells the story of a supernatural battle of good against evil fought out across the dimension of time on the human plane.
The behavior of light known as lasing is the result of quantum coherent behavior at a macroscale – it involves an astoundingly large assembly of photons all oscillating in phase, at a uniform wavelength. With the advent of lasers – which was made possible by the theoretical work of Albert Einstein in his elucidation of the photoelectric effect – the technique of holography was soon to be developed.
A hologram is a two-dimensional image which stores information about all three dimensions of the object it represents. The two images here are photographs of a single hologram taken from different angles.
The production of a holographic image involves using coherent light to record a wave-interference pattern on a photographic plate. The wave-interference pattern is a two-dimensional recording of the diffraction pattern of a 3-dimensional object, and when it is illuminated with normal polychromatic light, it reproduces a 3-dimensional image. It is this phenomenon from which the relatively new theory within physics known as the Holographic Principle derives its name. The Holographic Principle was first formulated by Gerard t’Hooft when it was mathematically shown that the information (referred to as entropy within physics, or degrees of freedom for an even more technical-based moniker) within the volume of any 3-dimensional space can be fully described by the two-dimensional surface enclosing that space (see Berkenstein Conjecture for more in depth discussion of information mapping).
It was soon realized that this principle could resolve a putative problem that had arisen in physics known as the information loss paradox. Stephen Hawking conjectured that black holes should actually radiate with emissions of particles from the quantum vacuum, which would eventually lead to their evaporation, albeit over an astronomically long period of time for solar mass black holes. If nothing can escape from the interior region of the event horizon that would mean all of the information initially contained by the collapsed star would essentially have disappeared. This violates a quantum mechanical principle of the conservation of information, much like the conservation of mass and energy. However, if the information is holographically encoded by vacuum fluctuations on the surface of the light-like boundary of the graviational horizon, then it is still accessible to the “physical universe”, and is therefore not lost. Furthermore, the Hawking radiation may be quantum entangled with the trans-horizon area, making it possible that the interior information is retained in the emissions even as the black hole evaporates (assuming that black holes truly evaporate, as in fact, according to Haramein there is a continuous feedback of information from the vacuum fluctuations rendering a dynamics equilibrium state to black hole structures).
Expanding on this notion, physicist Juan Maldacena published a pivotal paper showing how Swarzschild black holes described in what is known as anti-De Sitter space (simply a spacetime with negative curvature) can be holographically approximated by two entangled quantum systems. The quantum systems are described by the mathematical formulations of quantum field theory, and anti-De Sitter space is a particular form of the geometric description of gravity in General Relativity, thus the holographic correspondence between these two theories is considered a particular solution of quantum gravity. Because it made possible the description of the evolution of black holes in accordance with the known principles of quantum mechanics, this Correspondence Principle appeared to resolve the seeming information loss paradox. And has now led to postulations that all of spacetime is built by quantum entanglement through black hole / wormholes, like an enormous network where particles are hubs and wormholes in the structure of the vacuum are the link between them (stay tuned for another article on this specific subject, with some of the latest publications in the near future).
Recently a team of researchers in Japan have offered mathematical support of this theory by testing its predictive power with a computer simulation. The particular computer simulation used is well respected because of its ability to model certain mathematical solutions to a high degree of accuracy. They found that the simulation resulted in a computed black hole mass that is exactly what would be predicted by the holographic description of an evaporating quantum black hole within the Holographic Principle.
While this has produced agreeable results that support the holographic formulation of quantum gravity and the elucidation of the quantum description of black holes, it may contain largely superfluous mathematics from the fact that it is formulated in 11-dimensions (10 dimensions of space and one dimension of time). This is because the solutions are generated within the context of 11-dimensional Supergravity, a theory of quantum gravity within the well-known physics of Superstring Theory. Wherein the vibration of infinitesimally small strings produce the characteristics matter and force that we are so familiar with. One of the complications of this theory is that we only observe 3 spatial dimensions (plus a temporal dimension, unified together as spacetime). So where are the other 7 dimensions described by this theory? Physicist have obviated this seeming deficit of observational support by suggesting that the extra dimensions are ‘compactified’ – that is to say they are compacted down into extremely small areas, conveniently too small to be measured and consequently resulting in compactification possibilities of these dimensions in the vacuum, one of the largest number of solutions outputted by any theory in history. As a result, in decades of investigation String Theory has not been able to produce one single prediction that could be verified experimentally.
However, in contrast to this extreme complexity, Haramein has produced a holographic solution to quantum gravity that does not require 7 extra hidden dimensions, just the 3 we know exist. In his revolutionary approach, as described in his latest paper Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass, Haramein demonstrates an exact solution for the gravitational mass of black holes by using the most fundamental spacetime quanta of energy – Planck oscillators. Imagine a veritable sea of absolutely tiny fluctuating particle-like spheres, which are so small that at our macroscopic scale they appear as a smooth and continuous space (just like the surface of the ocean appears smooth, but is made of tiny molecules). When the ratio relationship of these Planck spheres on the surface of a black hole event horizon to the number inside is calculated, the exact mass of the black hole is obtained! Haramein found that this solution works at the quantum level as well, generating a highly precise value for the mass of a proton, and from which he was able to predict what the exact radius of a proton should be. This prediction was subsequently confirmed in January 2013 muonic measurement of the radius of the proton by the Paul Scherrer proton accelerator in Switzerland. Furthermore, Haramein was able to demonstrate that the Strong Interaction (Strong Force) that holds the nuclei of atoms together may be the result of these holographic vacuum fluctuations generating a gravitational force equivalent to the strong confining force found between holographic black hole protons.
The Holographic and Correspondence Principles, and their application to unified theories of quantum gravity as well as wormhole entanglement, are very exciting areas of theoretical research at the leading edge of physics that have come entirely from considering the quantum nature of black holes. At the extremes of physical processes, where the rules that govern our everyday world seem to bend to the breaking point, we find innovative theories and novel solutions, such as Haramein’s geometric holographic solution, that emerge from the crucible of these seemingly irreconcilable paradoxes. And while understanding the structure and dynamics of our Universe is a worthy pursuit in and of itself, these fundamental theories have always been the foundation of technological advancements, which benefits everyone and our global civilization as a whole.

[“Supernatural: Due to or manifesting some agency above the forces of nature, outside of the ordinary operation of cause and effect.”]
The evolution of modern humans has taken more than five million years but until less than 50,000 years ago we had no art, no religion, no sophisticated symbolism, no creative and innovative thinking, and quite possibly no language. Then, a dramatic and electrifying change overtook our ancestors in every part of the globe, and all the skills and qualities that we value most highly in ourselves today appeared suddenly, already fully formed, as though bestowed on us by hidden powers. Scientists describe this change as “the greatest riddle in human history”.
The first art of mankind, in the painted caves and rock-shelters of southwest Europe and South Africa, dates back to the time of the great change. Why do these ancient paintings, tens of thousands of years old, depict beings of a kind that are never found in nature – strange and eerie hybrids with the heads of animals and the bodies of humans?
In the depths of the Amazon rainforest tribal shamans drink a powerful hallucinogenic brew called Ayahuasca (“the vine of souls”) in order to induce visions. When they return to normal consciousness, after experiencing what they believe is out-of-body travel in the spirit world, they make paintings of the “intelligent beings” they have encountered. Why are many of these beings also depicted as uncanny hybrids with the heads of animals or serpents and the bodies of humans? And why do the shamans say that they have taught them everything they know about how to live in the jungle, and about the medicinal value of rainforest plants?
Why do Western lab volunteers, placed experimentally under the influence of hallucinogens such as DMT, psilocybin, mescaline and LSD, report visionary encounters with “beings” in the form of animal-human hybrids – beings identical to those the Amazonian shamans claim to meet and to those painted by our ancestors in the prehistoric caves?
What is the significance of the astonishing similarities between the entities known as “aliens”, ET’s” or “greys” in modern popular culture, the entities known as “fairies”, “elves” and “goblins” in the Middle Ages, and the entities that shamans in surviving tribal cultures know as “ghosts”, “gods” and “spirits”? Why are such figures depicted in prehistoric art as far afield as Africa, Europe, the Americas and Australia?
Why have eminent scientists at the cutting edge of consciousness research, especially those who study the ways that hallucinogens work in the brain, recently begun to question long-established theories about the nature of reality? Why are some now even ready to consider the possibility, long ago embraced by shamans, that, far from being “false perceptions”, what we see in the strange imagery and experiences of hallucinations may be real perceptions of other “dimensions” and the beings inhabiting them?
Why did Nobel Prize-winner Francis Crick keep concealed until his death the astonishing circumstances under which he first “saw” the double-helix structure of DNA? And why did he become convinced that the DNA molecule did not evolve naturally upon this planet but was sent here in bacteria by an alien civilisation?
Why does the 97 per cent of DNA that scientists do not understand – so-called “junk DNA” – contain chemical “sequences” arranged in patterns and frequencies that are otherwise only found in the deep coding of all human languages?
Could the “supernaturals” first depicted in the painted caves and rock shelters – and still accessible to us today in altered states of consciousness – be the ancient teachers of mankind? Could it be they who first ushered us into the full birthright of our humanity? And could it be that human evolution is not just the “blind”, “meaningless” “natural” process that Darwin identified, but something else, more purposive and intelligent, that we have barely even begun to understand?
These are some of the mysteries at the heart of the quest Hancock unfolds in the pages of his new book Supernatural – a quest that takes him on a journey of adventure and detection from the depths of the Amazon rainforest, to the stunningly beautiful painted caves of prehistoric Europe, and to ancient painted rock-shelters in the remote mountains of South Africa. This is a book of page-turning story-telling with electrifying descriptions of the daunting journey that Hancock must undertake as he drinks hallucinogens with tribal shamans in the Amazon and self-experiments with DMT, psilocybin and the African visionary drug known as Iboga – “the plant that enables men to see the dead.” But Supernatural also has an exciting basis in the latest science – much of it so far largely unknown to the general public. Thus, although the book takes readers into unusual and daring areas of enquiry, and investigates extraordinary possibilities about human origins, and about the nature of consciousness and of reality, the argument is underpinned throughout by the discoveries and views of eminent scientists doing cutting-edge research.

1 – What is Space
2 – The Illusion of Time
3 – Quantum Leap
4 – Universe or Multiverse
“The Fabric of the Cosmos,” a four-hour series based on the book by renowned physicist and author Brian Greene, takes us to the frontiers of physics to see how scientists are piecing together the most complete picture yet of space, time, and the universe. With each step, audiences will discover that just beneath the surface of our everyday experience lies a world we’d hardly recognize—a startling world far stranger and more wondrous than anyone expected.
Brian Greene is going to let you in on a secret: We’ve all been deceived. Our perceptions of time and space have led us astray. Much of what we thought we knew about our universe—that the past has already happened and the future is yet to be, that space is just an empty void, that our universe is the only universe that exists—just might be wrong.
Interweaving provocative theories, experiments, and stories with crystal-clear explanations and imaginative metaphors like those that defined the groundbreaking and highly acclaimed series “The Elegant Universe,” “The Fabric of the Cosmos” aims to be the most compelling, visual, and comprehensive picture of modern physics ever seen on television.

Part 1 – Defining a New Cosmology
This is the beginning of the series which explains the fundamentals of Russellian Science. The Cubic Wave-field Model authored by Walter and Lao Russell is defined in this segment to set the stage for the following videos which will go into great detail about the inner working of the “Electric Vortex Wave Dynamics”, which give form to our so-called “Physical Universe”.
For a thorough debunking of the false academic models in: physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, etc.as taught by corporate owned schools and Universities, medias etc. see my website:
The Complete Russellian Science Playlist:
An in depth study of the central concepts of Russellian Science has been juxtaposed throughout my site, demonstrating the superior understanding of “knowledge” gathered by inner vision of Mind using Russellian Science.
This method transcends the dull academic method of gathering data using one’s senses and then creating theories (guesses) based on the appearances of that empirical data. The problem being that mankind’s senses are deceived by the very motions of Light. Only by “knowing” light, can Mankind understand the true Nature of Reality, the Creator of the Universe and our relationship to the Whole of Creation.

1. Energy is not continuous, but comes in small but discrete units. 2. The elementary particles behave both like particles and like waves. 3. The movement of these particles is inherently random. 4. It is physically impossible to know both the position and the momentum of a particle at the same time. The more precisely one is known, the less precise the measurement of the other is. 5. The atomic world is nothing like the world we live in.
There is a new branch of science called Super String Theory or M Theory, which is further demonstrating that the material universe is just an illusion. Every atom and particle is not solid but made up of what theorectical physicists call strings of vibrational energy and they are so small that if an atom is the size of the Solar system, each one of the strings that make it up would be anywhere from the size of a tree on Earth or the size of an atom compared to the size of the atom, which has been extrapolated to the size of the Solar System. If there is no solidity whatsoever then it is easy to understand how the entire universe can expand from the point of the Big Bang.
In former times scientists thought that light consists of waves and that electrons, neutrons and protons are particles. But Scientists have discovered that sometimes light has got a wave character and sometimes light has got a particle character but not only light also the other particles which I mentioned sometimes have got a wave character. There is an experiment which shows that light can have a particle character. For this experiment we need a metal plate. When we irradiate this metal plate with light it can happen that some of the electrons of some atoms will leave their atomic shell. But when no electron leaves the atomic shell a classical physicist would say that the intensity is to low and what we need a stronger light source or that we must give the light nearer to the metal plate. But this would not help, because light consists of photons and when we have got a higher intensity there are more photons which bombard the electrons, but one electron can only absorb one photon. This means that the energy of the photon is responsible, wheather an electron leaves his atomic shell or not. The electrons are holded by the positive charged atomic nucleus and so they need a certain energy to break out. So we need radiation with a shorter wavelength to give the electrons enough energy. If the wavelength is shorter the energy and the frequency are higher. Which wavelength do we need depends on the atoms. Simple light is to little so that we need ultraviolet light for example. All this is called photoelectric effect. The best possibility to make this experiment is with an electroscope. There is also an experiment which show us that electrons can have a wave character. It is the double gap experiment which I will describe later, because it is the most important experiment for quantum physics and the consequences of it might change your conception of the world.
