Presence of Alien Mind
Homo sapiens emerged from homo erectus about 200,000 years ago. The
beginnings of Altaic/matristic civilization go back some 40,000
That happened on our planet between 200,000 B.C. and 40,000 B.C.?
Was there only the long, slow march of homo sapiens toward
rudimentary control over his environment?
Did other civilizations
rise to splendid heights and then enter upon a decline over that
enormous span of time, leaving not a trace be-hind?
Or were there other sentient species on our planet, long before the
ape-like creature that evolved into man?
A species that geological
convulsions consigned to an oblivion so profound that we can never,
ever know that race was here?
About such matters we cannot be
certain. Nor can we know if places for which the name “Shambhala"
has been used did not come into existence as time capsules of a
sort, Alien Arks - places where Alien Mind saw fit to preserve
something of the science and arts of the civilization then vanishing
through natural catastrophe, or through war, or for other reasons
otherworldly or un-fathomable.
These way-stations, bridging the gap
between the extinction of old and the birth of new sentient species,
would contain artifacts carefully picked by alien hand and, perhaps,
an equally carefully chosen number of survivors. They might contain,
in a way we also can never fathom, the spiritual Essence of that
civilization - a simulacrum of its Soul.
Over the long march of the millennia, other aliens may have come to
earth, for reasons unrelated to the preservation of elements of
earth’s civilizations. They may have come to wage war with the
Alien Mind perhaps easing the tormented
transitions of our planet between intelligent species. They may have
come as sightseers, or as researchers in the name of science. They
may have come here quite by accident. They could have been
shipwrecked, and, on a world inhabited by primitives without
technology, been tragically unable to signal from their ruined
spacecraft their location and their need for rescue or spare parts.
There is evidence to suggest that such a scenario may have unfolded
in the mountainous Bayan Kara Ula region of western China some
12,000 years ago.
These bits of evidence are extremely difficult to follow up, and
lead us often to dead ends. Perhaps there are those who wish to keep
this knowledge from us.
Announce an Interstellar Tragedy
In the 1960’s, the popular Soviet science magazine Sputnik published
a story about a sensational archaeological find in the Bayan Kara
Ula mountains of China, not far from the Tibetan border. This tale
of found alien artifacts and perhaps found re-mains of aliens would
have set the scientific community on its ear, had they taken it
But Sputnik was not the kind of magazine that Western
scientists-even Soviet scientists-were in the habit of taking
seriously In the 1950’s and 1960’s, Soviet publications like Sputnik
and Russian Digest and Soviet Union Today served the function of
megaphones. They were used to shout news and opinion of a
non-political nature over the top of the Iron Curtain. This was how
these publications caught the attention of the West, and in a
fashion circumvented the censuring strictures of the leaders of the
U.S.S.R. Getting wind of these sensational stories, readers in the
West might make haste to get hold of the magazine by hook or by
The trouble was that so sensational did these magazines make these
stories in order to seize the attention of the Western reader, that
the readers got in the habit of not taking them very seriously. Such
was the case with the immensely provocative report from Bayan Kara
Ula. This was unfortunate, because, in Eastern Europe and in the
U.S.S.R. in the 1950’s and 1960’s, there were credentialed, serious
thinkers, such as professor Matest M. Agrest, now living in
the U.S., and his fellow Communist bloc member philosopher-writer
Dr. Vyatcheslav Saitsev, who were learned in these areas.
They sifted through the evidence and
speculated freely and intelligently in the pages of these Soviet
journals about the implications of these accounts, addressing every
element contained therein. Some of these thinkers later became
linked with the “ancient astronaut” movement inspired by Erich
von Daniken many others continued to go their own way. Some
Western European magazines, at least, knew of the credentials of the
editorial staff of these superficially sensational Soviet journals.
It was due to them that, after Sputnik broke the story, the
revelations from Bayan Kara Ula became public knowledge in
the West. The Belgian magazine BUFOI (Belgian UFO
Investigator) picked it up as well as the esoteric German
publication Vegetarian Universe, using not only Soviet but Japanese
Here is the story they ran.
Mass Grave of
the Dwarfish People of Bayan Kara Ula
In the first week of January,1938, a scientific expedition led by
Chinese archaeologist Chi Pu Tei penetrated deep into the pathless
mountain regions of Bayan Kara Ula, not far from Tibet on the border
of Qinghai and Sichuan Provinces. This area is also known as Payenk
Ara Ulaa, or Bayan Har Shan. It is about the size of the State of
Connecticut, and is the place where the Yalong and Yangtze Rivers
originate, and where the Mekong River begins its long meandering
course southward toward Vietnam where, a thousand miles distant, it
becomes the life-line of that long-beleaguered country.
The mountains in the Bayan Kara Ula region rise to over 17,000 feet,
but, in the valleys below, it is - though you are still 7,000 feet
above sea level - pleasantly warm in the summer. Geologists believe
it was even warmer 20,000 years ago; whatever the truth of the
matter, this area contains traces of human habitation which go back
to the very earliest prehistoric times.
geographical detail: Just north of the principal chain of the Bayan
Kara Ula mountains, there lies a group of lakes with the ambiguous
name of ‘Ocean of Stars’ (though ‘stars’ can also be translated as
‘waters’). In the first week of the New Year, the party of Chinese
archaeologists led by Professor Chi Pu Tei discovered, in a
group of caves in this mountainous region, a series of graves
aligned in rows. There were no head stones to mark the graves, nor
were there epitaphs; but, on the cave walls there were drawings of
stick figures with elongated heads and, apparently, the sun, the
moon and the stars.
The scientists carefully excavated the graves. They proved to
contain skeletons with
abnormally large skulls and tiny bodies no
more than four feet long-far below the average size for the ethnic
groups of our planet. Only the pygmies of the rain forests of
Central Africa are in any way similar in proportion. The anatomy of
these creatures consisted of a very slender, delicate skeletal
structure, with narrow shoulders and thin extremities.
According to the expedition’s report, it
was as if these creatures had had rickets, or their skeletal
structure was related to that of flying mammals or birds whose limbs
are built to with-stand great stress.
To this day, extremely ancient legends circulate in this part of
China about small-bodied yellow beings said to have appeared out of
the clouds, and who, because of their strange, ugly appearance and
bizarre behavior, were attacked and in large part murdered by the
local inhabitants. In more recent times, the rock caves upon which
the archaeological team stumbled have continued to be shunned by the
superstitious and suspicious local people; the caves are in effect
This may be why the mysterious relic also found by the scientists at
the grave site had lain undisturbed by grave robbers for millennia.
12,000-Year-Old Long-Playing Record
What the scientists found was a single stone disk half buried in the
dust of the cavern floor. This stone disk resembled a long-playing
record from the early days of the gramophone. Its circumference was
12 to 12-½ inches and its thickness about 2/5 of an inch. There
was a hole in the middle large enough to put a finger through. An
incised groove spiraled outward from the hole, winding its way to
the perimeter of the disk and then winding its way back in the
overall pattern of a double spiral. It was not apparent then, but
closer inspection would later reveal that the groove was a
continuous, spiraling line of closely written characters.
The contents of the discovery in the
caves of Bayan Kara Ula, as I have described them up to this point,
are not entirely unique in the annals of Chinese archaeology. A tomb
excavated in a cave at Xishuipo, in Hunan Province, in 1987,
contained clamshell pavements thought to depict three prominent
constellations, the Tiger, the Dragon, and the Big Dipper. This tomb
is believed to date back extremely far in Chinese history, to 3000
B. C. This burial, and others at Xishuipo, may have been of shamans,
or of other religious figures of high social standing. Equally
intriguing was a jade turtle found in the same year in a
4,500-year-old tomb at Hanshan Lingjiatan, in Anhui Province. The
modeling on the back of the turtle, which seemed to include a
panoply of stars, strongly suggested that it was a sacred replica of
Moreover, stone disks with a hole in the center and a basic
double-spiral pattern are not an uncommon component of the grave
sites of very ancient China. They are artifacts whose origins may be
traced back to the beginnings of matristic (or ‘matriarchal’),
shamanistic societies of the Far East, and they are known to have
some relation - in that their patterns resemble the pat-terns on a
snake - to the worship of the serpent by the very earliest of shamanesses. But these stone disks at the Bayan Kara Ula grave site
were different. The spiraling grooves spelled out a message; and
that message was not of our planet.
Stone Disk as Alien Message in a Bottle: “We Are Shipwrecked.”
CHINESE ROSWELL: UFO Encounters in the Far East from Ancient Times
to the Present' by Hartwig Hausdorf).
Not this expedition, but later
expeditions, would unearth a total of 716 disks from the grave site.
They would be trans-ported to institutes of learning in Central
China. Over a period of 20 years, a handful of scientists would
periodically pore over these odd, heavy, stone artifacts. During
that period, one of them, Professor Tsum Um Nui of the Beijing
Academy for Ancient Studies, would become convinced that the grooves
contained a kind of writing. In 1962, the small group of scientists
working under his direction would announce that they had succeeded
in decoding a story of an alien tragedy of epic proportions.
The message on the stone disk was not entirely unlike a message in
bottle thrown into the sea by someone who is ship-wrecked and hopes
that his message will reach a rescuer. The spiral script, stated Dr. Tsum, contained an account of the crash landing of an alien
spacecraft in the mountainous region of Bayan Kara Ula 12,000 years
before. Almost all the occupants had survived; but the spacecraft,
once it had come to rest in the harsh and rugged terrain, had been
too severely damaged to be able to lift off from the surface again.
Repairs were impossible; the necessary materials could not be found.
The means for the craft to communicate its location and plight to
its home world had been damaged beyond repair. The beings from outer
space were forced to settle in a world and in a place utterly alien
to their kind. The local inhabitants of the region had misunderstood
these beings and - particularly frightened by the small and ugly
appearance of the aliens - this local tribe, called the Ham, had
hunted down and killed many of the shipwrecked ETs.
The members of Professor Tsum Um Nui’s team disagreed about the
precise origins of the engrooved message on the disks. Some thought
that sympathetic members of the Ham tribe, (encountered great
difficulties in making it public), was greeted with derision. Dr. Tsum was branded a liar and a fool. He later re-signed from the
Beijing Academy for Ancient Studies. Eventually, he emigrated to
Japan. Embittered by the reaction of the scientific establishment to
his decipherment of the strange stone disks, he died not many years
after having completed his controversial report.
Uncover More Secrets
If the Chinese scientific community rejected this other-worldly
explanation for the stone disks of Bayan Kara Ula, its ideological
counterpart, the Soviet Union, did not. A group of Russian
scientists had heard the stories, and asked to be allowed to examine
the disks. A number of the strange stone artifacts were eventually
dispatched to Moscow. The Soviet scientists did not seem to believe
Professor Tsum’s story on the face of it. Or, perhaps, they wished
to attack the problem of the disks in another way. They began to
conduct a chemical analysis of the disks themselves.
The scientists entrusted with the
investigation made a number of intriguing discoveries. Chemical
analysis showed that the disks contained large amounts of cobalt
and other metallic sub-stances. A magnetic metal like iron and
nickel, cobalt is used today primarily in alloy form with chrome,
steel, and other metals. It is mined mostly in Canada and Central Africa.
There is one place, and only one, in China, where it is profitable
to mine it, and that is in Qinghai Province - where the region of Bayan Kara Ulalies.
My assumption is that the group of space travelers, determined that
their 716 stone disks would last at least till somebody found them,
deliberately hardened them with cobalt, in the same way as cobalt is
used industrially today to harden specialty tools. The downed aliens
wanted their disks to endure till somebody came along who was
capable of deciphering them (or perhaps, till, over the long
millennia, some of their own kind came to earth and found them).
The Russian scientists not only discovered cobalt. When the disks
were placed on a special turntable and “played” - or so re-counts Dr.
Vyatcheslav Saitzev, who first told the story of the alien disks of
Bara Kara Ula for the Soviet magazine Sputnik - the long-playing
record-like artifacts emitted a strange uneven hum - a vibration. It
was as if the grooves were also electrical circuitry, or as if they
had once been exposed to very high volt-ages.
Cobalt contains a high-grade radioactive isotope.
If there were
detectable traces of cobalt present in the stone disks,
also somehow spell out a second, deeper, more subtly en-coded
Might there be an element of the subliminal message in these
enigmatic alien disks?
Will the meaning of these messages, stored in
a form we don’t yet understand, dawn upon us in the near or distant
future, when our own technology and our understanding have come
abreast of that of the shipwrecked aliens of Bayan Kara Ula?
Was the more superficial message, composed of spiral script and
translated by Professor Tsum, merely a part of the story?
It is entirely possible that the documented reports from the 1937-38
exploration and the work of Professor Tsum-Um-Nui were lost or
destroyed during the chaotic turmoil of the Cultural Revolution in
China. The material could very well have been viewed as subversive
and banned. A wave of Communist ideology started up in 1966, and,
carried along by students and the Red Guard, did not end till the
late 1970’s. In the almost Civil War-like turmoil and excesses of
the great proletarian Cultural Revolution that went on in the name
of Mao, death and horror took its toll among the Chinese people. The
number of dead it claimed is almost impossible to determine, as is
the extent of the loss of Chinas cultural treasures.
When the Cultural Revolution was at its height, the particulars
pertaining to the stone disks were published in Japan and Europe. It
would have been no wonder if the ruling mob were to have seized
these reports and declared them to represent “bourgeois decadence.”
Any notion of extraterrestrial intrusion or intervention stood in
sharp conflict to the strongly materialistic bent of Chinese
The Cultural Revolution flared up one last time in China following
the death of Mao in 1976. Mao’s widow, Jiang Qying, acting deputy
Wang Hong-Wen, party leader from Shanghai Zhang Chunqiaol, and
former editor Yao Wenyuan, tried to usurp the leadership of the
party. Yao Wenyuan was particularly active in this revolutionary
turmoil. He was responsible for initiating many highly negative
campaigns, and never ceased to inveigh against moderates in the
government. He initiated a hate campaign in the media which was
entirely controlled by himself. Only the downfall of this unholy
Gang of Four, who were arrested, tried and punished in 1981, brought
an end to this violent and horrific period. Slowly thereafter life
began to normalize in China.
People who travel through the Republic of China today and visit
museums, pagodas and temples, are often told that these Chinese
treasures have only survived thanks to the heroic deeds of some
individuals. Sometimes, they are told, these individuals risked life
and limb to oppose the Red Guard and its unrestrained vandalism.
Emperor’s Tomb, Two Disks Resurface
Our stone disks had not entirely vanished, however. Two of them were
to reappear some quarter of a century after they were first
Through eleven dynasties and a time-span of 1,080 years, Xian was
the capital city of Imperial China. The capital city of Shaanxi
Province today, Xian is a veritable treasure trove of priceless
objects from the Qin, Tang and Ming dynasties. Situated at the
entrance to the legendary Silk Highway, the city was already a major
Far Eastern center of commerce 2,500 years ago. Today, this city
enjoys an excellent reputation as a first-class tourist attraction.
In any study trip taken through China, it is as important to visit
this city and its treasures as it is to see the Great Wall of China
or the incomparable river scenery at Guilin.
At the tender age of 17, the Emperor Qin
Shi Huangdi (259-210 B.C.) of the Qin Dynasty had already decided
what form his burial mausoleum would take. He seems to have begun
his life as ruler more concerned about the end of his days than
about what his years on earth would be like. To protect the holy
silence of his tomb, he ordered his subjects to fabricate an
enormous army of terra cotta soldiers, horses and wagons, which they
then had to distribute over a wide area around his grave site.
Accidentally discovered in 1974 by
workers drilling a well, this life-sized replica of an army has
entered the annals of archaeological lore and also become a staple
of the travel brochures. These splendid figures - 8,000 of which
have been unearthed so far, with archaeologists still counting - are
(as we will see!) only a small part of the treasures waiting to be
uncovered at the grave site of the emperor.
As important as the terra cotta army of Qin Shi Huangdi may be,
however, there are two other artifacts which, in my view, are every
bit as important, and which at some point somehow found their way to
the vicinity of Xian: two of the stone disks from the mountain
burial cave of Bayan Kara Ula. In 1953, in a suburb located on the
east side of Xian, construction workers digging the foundations for
a proposed factory unearthed the ruins of a Neolithic settlement
whose age would eventually be estimated by archaeologists at about
6,000 years. This settlement, called the Banpo village, is one of
the best-pre-served Late Stone Age sites in China.
To protect from the elements the treasures of Banpo as they came to
light, and to make them accessible for viewing by visitors and
tourists, officials built a museum on the site instead of a factory
Scientists believe the find still represents only one-fifth of the
area to be profitably uncovered.
Around the Banpo Museum stand a number of smaller buildings, which
also house exhibits from the last millennia of the Stone Age. It is
thought that 200-300 people lived here in that epoch shrouded in the
mists of antiquity. In one of these smaller buildings, the Austrian
engineer Ernst Wegener came across two of the stone disks of Bayan
Disappearance of Custodian and Disks
This was in 1974. Wegener was in the middle of a long journey
through China. He seized the opportunity to photograph these
artifacts. The museum’s director knew every detail of every broken
shard of pottery in the museum - but, when confronted about the
origins of these stone disks, she took refuge in the explanation
that they were ‘cult disks’ whose true significance was unknown.
The Austrian engineer was permitted to touch the objects. They had a
circumference of 12 to 12-½ inches and a thickness of about 2/5
of an inch, and bore grooves which spiraled from a hole in the
middle out to the outer edge, then back again. A superficial
examination persuaded Wegener that the disks were made of granite,
or perhaps even of a kind of marble. He estimated the weight of each
at about 2.2 pounds; certainly, they were made of quite dense
Wegener’s photographs have been
preserved to this day. Unfortunately, they are not very helpful,
since the engineer used a Polaroid camera, and since the stone disks
were already exhibiting a great
deal of fragmentation and crumbling. But the story of the stone
disks of the Banpo Museum does not end here.
In March,1994, in the course of my second journey to China, my
friend Austrian journalist Peter Krassa and myself met with then -
director of the Banpo Museum Professor Wang Zhijun. At first,
Professor Wang Zhijun did not want to talk to us about the disks.
Then he revealed that, a few days after Wegener’s visit in 1974,
both the stone disks and the museum director with whom Wegener had
spoken had vanished without a trace.
Director Wang Zhijun seemed uncomfortable with our discussion. When
I asked him where the discs were now, he replied,
“The stone disks
you have mentioned do not exist; but, being extraneous objects in
this museum, they were relocated.”
This was a statement not without
internal contradictions. And it was all that Director Wang Zhijun
would tell us.
Among the Aliens
In his 1978 book, Sungods in Exile, David Agamon tells the story of
the 1974 expedition of eccentric British scientist Dr. Karyl
Robin-Evans to the Bayan Kara Ula mountain range. According to Agamon, Robin-Evans came across several hundred members of
dwarfish tribe known as the Dropa, who lived in a remote valley and
whose average height was no more than about four feet.
Robin-Evans spent six months among the Dropa. He learned their
language and was introduced to their history and traditions. They
told him their ancestors had come from a planet revolving around the
star Sirius, and had crash - landed in a space-craft in this area a
very long time before. Many had been killed. The survivors had
become acclimatized to living on our planet.
Ukrainian scientist Dr. Vladimir Rubtsov
has written to inform me that Sungods in Exile is only science
fiction woven around rumor and legend, believable only by the very
gullible. But the Associated Press, in a November,1995 article,
reported that some 120 dwarfish beings had been discovered living in
Sichuan Province in Central China, the tallest of them being no more
than three feet ten inches in height, and the shortest adult
measuring two feet one inch.
In January,1997, Chinese ethnologists tried to discount this
phenomenon of 120 dwarfish beings living in a single area by
attributing their dwarfism to the high concentration of mercury in
the soil of the region. They insisted the dwarfs must have
absorbed the mercury in their drinking water over many generations.
Dr. Norbert Felgenhauer, of the Munich Institute for Toxic Surgery,
tells me that this explanation is nonsense. He says that mercury is
a lethal poison harmful to any organ in the human body, and that the
dwarfs would not have survived. Moreover, he says, mercury cannot
change human DNA and so cannot cause hereditary disease.
‘Village of the Dwarfs’
The Chinese authorities have never denied the existence of a
‘Village of the Dwarfs’ in Sichuan Province, nor that the village is
located only two or three hundred miles east of the Bayan Kara Ula
mountain region. This latter fact may indicate that the Dropa
migrated from the mountains to the lowlands, and that they did so
only recently These tiny people must have been isolated for many
millennia before their discovery; otherwise, interbreeding with
other ethnic groups would have resulted in an increase in their
There is further evidence for the existence of a dwarfish people in
China. Joerg Dendl, a doctoral candidate in history who lives in
Berlin, has unearthed a report from 1911 which tells of repeated
sightings of an extremely dwarfish people in Tibet and neighboring
areas. When I was lecturing in Brisbane, Australia, in June, 1996, a
young couple came up to me. They told me that their grandfather had
fought with the Allies in Central China during World War Two. Till
the day he died, they told me, he never ceased to talk about his
encounters with an extremely dwarfish tribe of people living in that
area. According to his account, these dwarfish folk were even
smaller than the pygmies of Africa, who normally grow to a height of
between four feet eight inches and five feet.
These anecdotal reports cry out for intensive research. I will
continue to do my best to get to the bottom of the mysterious
evidence pertaining to a UFO crash that occurred thousands of years
ago in a remote region of Central China - an incident the discussion
of which is so scrupulously avoided by any official with whom I have
spoken, that it smacks of a ‘Chinese Roswell.’
The serendipitous discovery of Mr. Wegener presents us with far more
questions than answers.
Were the two disks exhibited at the Banpo
Museum near Xian unmistakably two of the disks unearthed at Bayan
If so, what were they doing in Xian?
It may be that the disks-taken away from Professor Tsum, presumably,
after he had completed his report, and before he had retired to
Japan - have been dispersed in a number of directions by government
officials. This may have been a way, on the one hand, of hiding
them, and on the other, of assuring their safety.
All of China would have to be destroyed before all the disks could
be destroyed. This suggests that government authorities must have
thought the contents of the disks to be of some importance. It would
have been all the more vital, at the time of the turmoil of Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution, to spirit away at least a part of this
sensational find to the provinces of China, far away from the
vulnerable capital city of Beijing.
We might ask our-selves, also:
What happened to the stone disks that were brought to Moscow to be
examined? At the time of the Cultural Revolution, relations between
the Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China had deteriorated
sharply; it may well be that Moscow simply refused to return the
artifacts that had been entrusted to it.
And where is Professor Tsum Um Nui’s report? All traces of that
extraordinary document seem to have vanished as well, just as surely
as have the other pieces of evidence pointing to the shipwreck of an
alien crew on earth 12,000 years ago. When will the other disks, and
the complete research papers of Professor Tsum Um Nui, be made
available by the government of China to all interested parties?
And last, but not least: If an emergency landing really did take
place, where are the remains of the spacecraft? It seems reasonable
to assume that a vessel built to withstand the rigors of
interstellar travel would not easily crumble to dust during 12,000
years on earth.
The spacecraft may lie somewhere in the impenetrable forests and
ravines of western China, buried beneath the foliage of the
Modern-day China has been surprisingly open about UFO sightings,
apparently making the records accessible to everyone. Does such
openness mask a higher purpose? Does the spacecraft of Bayan Kara
Ula sit in the laboratories of Chinese science, covered with
equipment which - for how many decades now? - has been probing its
every nook and cranny in an effort to decipher its alien secrets?
Concealments of Western Man
The strange non-attempts at explanation by the Banpo Museum’s
director vividly reminded me of another personal experience I had,
this time when I was on a trip through Mexico in 1991. At one point,
our local tour guide, a proud Mexican named Enrique who was surely
better schooled in Spanish than in Ger-man, seemed suddenly to be
struck dumb, and to act as if he couldn’t understand his mother
tongue. Why was this? We were in the pyramid city of Teotihuacan, 25
miles northeast of Mexico City, and I was absolutely determined to
show my fellow travelers the so-called ‘glimmer chambers’ of the
pyramid, which are said to be hidden behind padlocked doors.
When I mentioned these glimmer chambers to my guide, and asked him
where they might be found, he was suddenly rendered speechless. An
expression of complete befuddlement crossed his face. He acted as if
even the Spanish word mica, which means “glimmer” or “glisten,” were
to him a total mystery wrapped in a total conundrum.
Eventually, I was able to locate the chambers myself. But I noticed
that our guide was clearly embarrassed by all this, and that he
offered no explanation for the clear evidence that this section had
recently been repaired with concrete. Were the custodians of these
pyramids hiding something from us?
Several days later, I was witness to a far more positive event, this
time in Palenque, home of the tomb of the
Mayan God-King Pacal. A
tour guide, obviously of Mayan descent, was talking in quite
uninhibited Spanish to a party from France about the extraterrestres,
the extra-terrestrials. Clearly, this man had been able to avoid the
forms of mental conditioning to which modern-day Western society
forces us to submit, and was purely and simply passing on truths
that his ancestors had known for millennia perhaps, and which were
perfectly natural to them.
If only there were those who could talk to us like this about Bayan
