Product description

Twenty-first century civilization faces economic, ecological and spiritual meltdown. To survive this century as civilized people, we need to refer back to a time when city life was in harmony with nature and the wider environment. We cannot dismiss the ancients as 'primitive' when they had a blueprint for civilization that first appeared over 5,000 years ago. Perhaps we should look at the ancient past for solutions, such as the possibility of an unknown zero-carbon technology. Did they really build giant pyramids with blocks of stone weighing hundreds of tonnes using only slaves, hemp rope and copper tools? For the last two thousand years, however, much has remained hidden - primarily because the Greeks and the Romans did not have access to the whole archetype. The Church then further compounded the loss of knowledge under layers of misinterpretation. This book reveals more about the original concepts going back to the end of the Ice Age, identifying the earliest principles and what happened to them.

Review quote

A thoughtful, provocative and inspiring book, which offers an understanding of history that, can help us negotiate the enormous challenges of our own times. (Timothy Freke, author of The Jesus Mysteries and How Long Is Now?) We need the broad perspective that Wyatt outlines as we attempt to regain lost ground. Engaging and thought-provoking, 'Approaching Chaos' is sure to leave the astute reader with a new outlook on the big issues that really matter. (Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., scientist and author of Voices of the Rocks)
