Two brothers explore the mysteries of the ages, the ancients, and the modern day

    Episode #170: The Velikovsky Heresies - Part 2

    Episode #170: The Velikovsky Heresies - Part 2

    For part two of our deep dive into The Velikovsky Heresies by Laird Scranton, we talk about the mechanics of the solar system, of circular orbits, of retrograde motion. We talk about the "n-body problem" of physics and how the motions of all the bodies in the solar system is, over the long term, an exercise in chaos mathematics. We read about how Velikovsky was in communication with Einstein before his death, and that Einstein was skeptical at first but was impressed when one of Velikovsky's predictions proved to be accurate. We read about ancient records comparing Venus to comets and supernova that were visible in the daytime, and about the strange properties of the core of Jupiter. Much thanks to our friends over at Inner Traditions for allowing us to read large excerpts from one of their publications.

    Episode #169: The Velikovsky Heresies - Part 1

    Episode #169: The Velikovsky Heresies - Part 1

    Kyle was out of town for most of this week so this show was late, but on Friday night we finally managed to get in the Tangent Cube and record it. We're starting a new SnakeBros book report, this one on Laird Scranton's excellent book The Velikovsky Heresies. On this episode we cover Laird's intro to the book and the first few chapters, discussing the controversy that Velikovsky's work caused, and Laird's purpose in writing the book, which was to see if Velikovsky's ideas hold up to modern science and the enormous amount of new understanding we have gathered about our solar system since the writing Velikovsky's works.

    Episode #168: Saudi Arabia and the Mountain of Moses

    Episode #168: Saudi Arabia and the Mountain of Moses

    This week we are joined once again by Bob Johnson for the first hour of the show to talk about his experiences in Egypt and Saudi Arabia as a geologist, this time in the context of the subject of the story of Exodus. Bob directed us to watch a short documentary detailing a possible "alternate route" to the legendary Mount Sinai, the Mountain of Moses. That mountain is commonly thought to be in the Sinai peninsula, but the documentary shows that it may actually be in Saudi Arabia, on the eastern side of the Gulf of Aqaba. There are many features and places besides the mountain itself that seem to match up with the story told in Exodus, lending credence to this possibility. Bob spent decades working in this area and knows the geology very well, so as we go through the evidence for this alternate possibility, he gives his own thoughts on the pros and cons of the concept. There is a lot of map work in this part of the show, so we did record some video of Bob pointing to places on the map for the first hour, which you can see if you go to our Youtube channel. Below are links to the documentary itself and a few screenshots of the maps of the area.

    Episode #167: Plato, Timaeus, and Atlantis

    Episode #167: Plato, Timaeus, and Atlantis

    This week we are joined by another SnakeForce guest, Tony Petrangelo. Tony is an active member in the Discord and has been heavily researching Plato, Socrates, the Mediterranean Bronze Age civilizations, and Atlantis. We asked Tony to come on the show and talk to us about his research and his take on the Timaeus dialogue. He gives an excellent presentation, taking us through select parts of the text, providing context, opinions of academics, Neo-Platonics, and other researchers, along with his own particular take on what Plato may be talking about. This is excellent information for anyone interested in the concept of Atlantis. See more of Tony's research on Atlantis at his website, https://atlantis.fyi/ Below are some links Tony sent for anyone wishing to do further research: Timaeus (Jowett translation) Critias (Jowett translation) Timaeus and Critias (Taylor translation) Plato’s Forms, Pythagorean Mathematics, and Stichometry by JB Kennedy The Musical Structure of Plato’s Dialogues by JB Kennedy The Cosmic Serpent by Victor Clube and Bill Napier Literary History in the Parian Marble by Andrea Rotstein Atlantipedia Atlantis-Scout And of course, check the Library of the Serpent, which is full of relevant material.

    Episode #166: UFOs - Part 2

    Episode #166: UFOs - Part 2

     Marty Garza returns to the Tangent Cube for a second round of discussion on the topic of UFOs, alien abductions, and the history of this subject in modern times. Last time, we mostly discussed governmental responses to the phenomena. This week, Marty takes us through a few select cases, one of which lead to an extremely widespread and very detailed study of thousands of cases from people all over the world. Marty gives some of the information resulting from this study, and in many cases the information is very different from the picture of the phenomena that has been painted by media, movies, and documentaries. We end the show with some discussion of the possibility that old Biblical texts may, in some cases, be depicting more of this kind of phenomena as well.

    Episode #165: The Giza Template with Ed Nightingale

    Episode #165: The Giza Template with Ed Nightingale

     This week we are joined by Ed Nightingale to discuss his extensive work on the layout of the Giza monuments. Ed has uncovered a "master plan", a kind of architectural mathematical layout of the Giza plateau that incorporates sacred geometry and encodes precessional numbers and universal constants like pi, phi, and the speed of light. The concepts themselves are relatively simple geometric processes, but they are difficult to explain using only words, so Ed shows us some slides during the show. These slides will be available in the YouTube version of the show, we encourage you all to watch it! We will be having Ed on in future shows to get more into the material, as this show was mostly an overview of the process and a quick look at some of the geometry.
