SaintSovereign’s Book Club

For those who don’t know, I read A LOT of books. Admittedly, sometimes it’s a speed read, other times I’ll take forever to read a book to grasp all the concepts. I figured I’d share some of my current reading list and discuss. Nothing formal for now, but if the idea gets possible, we could expand the concept.

Selected Past Books
The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity
The Ancient Language of Sacred Sound
The Upanishads: A New Translation
Carl Jung’s Man and His Symbols
And since I’m really into world religions and doctrines, I’ve read a ton random books at: Internet Sacred Text Archive Home

Current Reading List (6.15.22):
Brian Greene’s The Elegant Universe
Brian Greene’s The Fabric of the Cosmos
The Mysticism of Sound and Music

David Graeber is brilliant, I’m a fan. Loved his book Debt: The First 5000 Years, it’s a must for anyone interested in money, economic theory and the works.

What do you do to remember the information you get from a read?

I hate to sound like this, but pretty much nothing. I just have a really good memory, lol. I do highlight important passages though, and return to them once in awhile. In the past, I took a lot of notes. Like, A LOT of notes in something like Evernote.

How are you finding The Dawn of Everything? I enjoy reading new takes on history based on new archaeological discoveries (Gobekli Tepe changed a lot, for example) though I tend to prefer Graham Hancock’s writing on those types of topics. I definitely raised an eyebrow when I saw that Graeber was one of the primary Occupy organizers… based on that connection alone I doubt his writing would regard any flavor of capitalism favorably.
(For comparison… I enjoyed reading Sapiens (Yuval Noah Harari) but found some of his conclusions a little too socialist-leaning for my personal tastes… though I’ve yet to actually finish that book so will reserve my own judgment.)

I’d love to hear your take on the book once you’re finished!

How much time do you spend on reading books each day @SaintSovereign ?

Reading about Gobekli Tepe is what got me into this subject in the first place. Makes me wonder how many other things we’ve gotten wrong and never questioned.

So far, I’m enjoying it a lot. I tend not to talk too much about what I’m reading until I’m finished, as I try to keep my mind open.

Depends. I tend to read after I’ve finished all of my work, which is usually around 1 a.m. Then, I like to take some CBD + a bit of melatonin to unwind and I’ll read until that knocks me out. Sometimes, that’s two hours because I’ll be so into the book. Sometimes, it’s 45 minutes. I read everyday, however.

Fingerprints of the Gods - Graham Hancock
Magicians of the Gods - Graham Hancock
Origins of the Sphinx - Robert Schoch (similar topic, more focused on Egypt)

I’ve also just picked up a copy of America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization, also by Graham Hancock, to read over the holidays.

Wait a minute here!!! This is a subject that interests me for over 25 years, but since I started ZP for who knows what reasons, Ive been obsesively watching documentaries about ancient civilizations and alternative timelines for human beings origins and evolution.

Questioning the very core of assumptions about who we are.

Graham Hancock is awesome.

@SaintSovereign Have you tried Delta 8 CBD?

Delta 8 is too much for me. Makes me drowsy for an entire day.

I asked you in the PMs I think, but didn’t get a response.

Did you ever read the Dolores Cannon books about getting in contact with Extraterrestials via hypnosis?

Haven’t read it, but it looks like another reinterpretation of existing ideas, like what’s found in The Kybalion. That’s not a bad thing at all, though.

I have not. I’ll look into it.

Check out Keepers of the Garden by her first, first.

Also aligns in many ways with the Kybalion.

I’ll check it out @Malkuth thanks!
