Knowing the nature of the preliterate mind is the key to correctly understand the ancient sources (Old Testament, Egyptian art and spirituality, the Sumerian epic Gilgamesh, Meso-American glyphs and art, European prehistoric cave art etc.) that many of our alternative world views are based on.This book contains sources that will supply you with an accurate view of the nature of the preliterate mind and their art. Also included is my thinking on the accuracy of three (3) the current alternative world views: Noah's Ark, Atlantis, and UFOs and Aliens. My thinking is based on my extensive knowledge of the preliterate mind and art as well as the nature of psychic experiences.
