•Did lifestyles inside of our sunlight method first enhance on one other planet past Earth?
•Might people be a hybrid production mixed from indigenous Earth species and extraterrestrial life?
•Did a disastrous celestial occasion round 700,000 BC regulate a complicated neighboring planetary civilization?
•Was Earth infiltrated via alien existence from that neighboring planet throughout the historical past?
•Do definite archaic cave work and rock drawings truly depict aliens and lengthy extinct animals?
•Did Atlantis, Lemuria, or Mu as soon as exist someday in the course of Earth's distant past?
•What adjustments happened in the world after the good Flood?

• Explains the quantum physics in the back of the Waves of the Mayan Calendar approach and the way their holograms form the human brain
• indicates how all through background every one revolution in human realization has been pushed via the activation of 1 of the 9 Waves of Creation
• unearths how we will be able to consciously paintings to deactivate the destructive styles of the 6th Wave and appear the solidarity attention of the 9th Wave
In the earlier few years the area has witnessed adjustments in social recognition whose unexpected improvement the ruling medical paradigm has now not been capable of clarify. those alterations correspond with the activation of recent Waves of construction emanating from the guts of the universe that impression human considering. From the massive Bang to the current, those Waves consultant the evolution of the universe and, via their holographic resonance with the human brain, profoundly form revolutions in faith, expertise, economic climate, and social consciousness.
Presenting a quantum-holographic viewpoint on international background and human attention, Carl Calleman explains the quantum physics in the back of the Waves of the Mayan Calendar procedure and the way those Waves let us comprehend the transferring eras on the earth in addition to the chances of the long run. He describes how, sooner than the activation of the sixth Wave in 3115 BCE, our social structures have been according to a unified cosmic order, however the hologram of this Wave shifted society to an all-consuming specialise in strong and Evil, resulting in the increase of patriarchal non secular constructions, slavery, and battle.

Anschaulich beschreibt Klaus Bringmann die entscheidenden Weg- und Wendemarken in mehr als 500 Jahren römischer Geschichte. Überblicksdarstellungen längerer Zeitspannen wechseln sich ab mit der Schilderung bedeutender, folgenreicher Ereignisse der inneren und äußeren Geschichte – wie etwa des Krieges gegen Karthago oder der Auseinandersetzung um die Reformbemühungen der Gracchen. In ‚Nahaufnahmen‘ werden die Protagonisten der römischen Republik vorgestellt: der sagenumwobene Brutus, der den letzten der römischen Könige vertrieben haben soll, der sprichwörtlich gestrenge Cato, aber natürlich auch Marius und Sulla, Caesar und Pompeius und schließlich Augustus, der die Republik zur Monarchie transformierte.
