Heaven's Mirror: Quest for the Lost Civilization (1999). by Graham Hancock, Robert Bauval & John Grigsby.

Heaven's Mirror: Quest for the Lost Civilization (1999). Hancock challenges orthodox history with extraordinary theories of a vanished early civilisation destroyed by a cataclys. owever heretical his arguments, his sweep through the ancient world is arresting and audacious. Awe inspiring and enigmatic, the sacred sites and holy places of ancient man have stood mute for millennia – their secrets seemingly vanished with the civilisations that built them. Yet what mysteries would they reveal if they could speak?

Whatever you think of Hancock's ideas and theoretical musings in archaeo-astronomy, Heaven's Mirror is a gorgeous book, thanks to the photography of Santha Faiia

This is a sequel, or more of a companion, to Hancock's Fingerprint of the Gods. It expands and adds to material in those books. These two, along with the Message of the Sphinx and the new Magicians of the Gods, really serve as the core of Hancock's "lost civilization" collection. In this volume, heavily illustrated by Hancock's wife, he continues to explore the ancient, sophisticated sites widely scattered around the world. Were they connected? Are similarities coincidental? Perhaps some are, others not. That has always been at issue. Why do astronomical alignments point to a time when the world underwent a catastrophe? A warning? A memorial remembrance? There is a lot of fascinating material here and his newest book relates the latest on the antiquity of man and the catastrophe at the end of the last Ice Age. Only quibbles: He claims science says there is no soul - but it does, see Brain Wars and The Spiritual Brain. And on the last page, he writes that religions "have let us down" on the war between "darkness and light" and not provided us "guidance." Seriously? Is that not a primary thrust of religion? Has he never opened up the Old and New Testaments? Nevertheless, a good book on the subject - thankfully free of aliens and other oddities that so often populate books of "alternative" history writers.

This is the second book I've read by Mr Hancock and am again amazed at the amount of research and the depth of study that went into the compiling of both. If you think this is one of those "woo woo" tomes that spouts speculations without backup then think again. If you are of scientific bent then his documentation of his conclusions will certainly satisfy. I had purchased this book for my husband but ended up cornering it for myself. I was and am enthralled by the information presented about our planets' history .. a history apparently much longer and varied than that we were presented with in school. Who knew? I certainly didn't ever though I consider myself educated. Worth the read!

Generally, this a beautiful, almost coffee-table book, presentation of Hancock's research into sacred archaeology and ancient history. Unlike some of his other books this one is clearly organized, succinctly written and beautifully illustrated.

Specifically, this is an amazing presentation of the astronomical/mathematical precision and display of ancient cultures (expressed in the mirroring of constellation patterns in various pyramids and megalithic monuments), coming across like a true-to-life conspiracy theory/detective story (way more deep and vast than Dan Brown's popular novels, which may be serving to prep the masses for the truths Hancock has helped collect and synthesize), connecting ancient cultures of Central and South Americas, Egypt, Cambodia and the Pacific around a common and simple astronomical fact (the 1 degree "precession" of the heaven's in relation to the earth every 72 years), and a communicated specific date (10,500 BC, which possibly marks the destruction of an advanced civilization at the end of the last ice age). This research convincingly shows that the ancient's were both bright and aware (these are not the calculations and buildings of primitive cave men, or even egoistical god-kings!), and willing to go to great lengths to preserve and communicate this knowledge to us (whatever it's spiritual and historic significance may be). It is truly amazing to see the precision and dedication of these efforts (spanning the globe and thousands of years), laid out so clearly in this book's drawings, photos and explanations.

When I wonder about the impact of the secret and encoded knowledge on us today (and our jaded, complacent and distracted attitudes and sensibilities), I just remember how much effort the ancients put into preserving/transmitting it (15 million tonnes of stones used in the Great Pyramid of Giza, and a single dressed block in Bolivia weighs an estimated 477 tonnes!), and I let the weight and sincerity of those efforts sink in through my modern sensibility. What I'm left with is a vast and powerful feeling of connectedness that makes individual cultures and traditions (ie. specific religions and academic disciplines) seem petty and limited. I'm left feeling open and awed by our human experience and history.

At the best you will be transported back 10,500 years ago to a super-civilization that spanned the length of the globe making monuments to their gods and exploring the heavens and the seas!!
This book will produce a physical visceral reaction for EVERY reader who dares to pick up this book. Some will dismiss it as total and utter junk, other will believe every word of it. Most of us will be intrigued, enjoy the excellent writing and spectacular pictures, but be left unsure. I know at the end of this book I WANTED TO BELIEVE MORE THAN I WANTED TO BELIEVE ANYTHING ABOUT HISTORY!!
I want to believe that the human race could do all of these fantastic things in such an organized, precise way thousands of years before the great civilizations of the Romans and the Greeks. I really do! I want to believe that we are all tied together in a way that united us and makes up proud of the human race and its dizzying array of achievements. I want to believe that our ancestors tamed the seas, knew advanced calculus, astronomy, physics, building techniques, etc. I think this book gives great hope for mankind and demonstrates how special human beings are.
That being said, do I agree with all Hancock's theory? Answer: I don't know, but it made one hell of a read, and for that I thank him.
Trust me when I tell you that this book is worth reading, worth thinking about and important in a small way (possibly an extremely large way) about the history of humanity. It is well written, filled with exceptional photographs, explains complicated ideas with ease, and you will learn something. Even if it as simple as the idea of celestial procession.
READ THIS BOOK!
