Authors Andrew Collins and Gregory Little are already highly respected and recognized boots on the ground truth seekers who a number of interviewers have identified as real-life Indiana Jones characters. Andrew even has a massive cave complex beneath Egypt's Giza plateau named after him - Collins' Cave - and Greg has compiled a massive volume entitled The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Native American Mounds & Earthworks (now in its second edition). Both have grappled with earth's greatest mysteries, both ancient and modern, with scholarly precision and insight, laying bare for the reader some of the most remarkable and thought-provoking facts and new discoveries in this one-of-a-kind volume.

You the reader will find yourself taken to rare and unique destinations around the globe, learning of incredible events and circumstances that can dramatically alter your worldview. Forget what you have previously been told and taught about this world and its reality and open your mind to what these two knowledgeable and dedicated authors have to share with you from their well-documented and reasoned evidence and interpretations.

The reader of this book is about to embark upon a truly mind-boggling journey. So buckle up and get ready. You’re about to launch forth where few authors, educators, scientists, and historians have previously dared or else had sufficient insight or vision to direct their focus

Are some of the unexplained UFO/UAP reports that we’ve heard about for so many years intelligent living plasmas? You’ll be surprised at the volume of existing evidence that scientists are already puzzling over. And did ancient shamanic people, who we often have written off as primitive and ignorant savages, did they have a grasp on forces of this sort that’s still beyond the grasp of most educated people today? The authors pull together compelling clues from all over – the Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, Bempton in Northern England, the Qesem Cave in Israel, a shamanic site dated beyond 400,000 years, and so very many other fascinating sites, ultimately begging the question that arises from their determined, scholarly efforts – are the gods of our ancestors transdimensional intelligences that have long interacted with humankind from ancient shamanic and spiritual practices whose enigmatic appearances continue into our modern times?

What role does the archetypal trickster play in these occurrences and why? What do the stories of Edgar Cayce, Joan of Arc, Emanuel Swedenborg, and thousands of other human beings around this world tell us about the strange and, often to most of us most of the time, the hidden and invisible reality that surrounds us daily. And what was the deal with the Biblical account of the Ark of the Covenant? Was Moses given instructions in its construction by plasma-based transdimensional intelligence?

The authors connect a lot of tantalizing dots in this thought-provoking volume. So many it’s impossible in a brief book review such as this to adequately touch upon them all. But rest assured, this is an intellectual exercise that certainly is worth taking the time to ponder and explore. Just don’t let any aspects of your acculturated cognitive dissonance get in the way. Be sure and plow through the entire book first, from beginning to end, before you arrive at a final conclusion of your own.
