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.
