Hi Brian, I am about half way through the book and am totally fascinated.

I was curious about your personal views on the history of civilization, and how closely do your beliefs align with Graham Hancock’s? I ask because it feels like a broader implication of your findings might be that these rituals had been passed along by some unified technological civilization that has been wiped from history but for megalithic architecture and some rituals or beliefs as you have been uncovering.

I understand that you would likely prefer to maintain your focus on this one topic of potential psychedelic use in the Mysteries and other secret rituals, but assuming Graham is correct in the loosest sense about a lost global civilization, I’d be interested to know where you’d like to follow the compass next. Rediscovering lost answers of our past is just so mind blowing , and I would be inclined to believe that your incredible knowledge of ancient languages might make you uniquely qualified to uncover more than just information on this topic.

Thanks for doing this AMA!

Thanks very much for answering!

I absolutely respect that position, Graham’s work is intriguing but of course the evidence is very elusive on many fronts.

I also wanted to add that it is too bad that you’ve had to abstain from any ‘hands on’ research- but certainly there are many out there who would immediately dismiss all of your hard work if it wasn’t the case. Kudos for sticking to it, and hopefully one day you can experience one of these Mysteries for yourself.

I’ll be on the lookout for whatever you do next- cheers!

Just gonna jump in here real quick to say that my dad has owned 3 crown vics (his current is a 2005). He absolutely loves em. He has had air conditioner problems on all 3 of them, though. Could just be his luck, who knows- at least the fix isn't an arm and a leg
