The Shamanic Civilization:
The Strange World of the Denisovans and their Impact on the Emergence of Modern Human Society
Andrew Collins is arguably one of the world’s top authorities on the Denisovans and their the potential impact on the emergence of advanced human behaviour the foundations of civilization. In his lecture he will review the very latest evidence on what we know about the Denisovans so far, a picture that is transforming month by month. He will also explore the controversial theory that the Denisovans possessed a mindset that was autistic or savant like in nature, showing how this might well have acted as the trigger to allow them and their hybrid descendants to emerge as the true founders of what might be referred to as the shamanic civilization.
He will explain the importance of autism in the development of predictive thinking, and how this explains why our ancestors became obsessed with key numbers associated with long term solar and lunarcycles, most obviously 9, 54, 72, 108, 216 and 432, which all appear in myths and legends across the ancient world, and also within sacred architectural design. In addition to this, Andrew will show how the Denisovan hybrids may well have been responsible for disseminating a universal death journey of the soul of the deceased as well as that of the shaman involving a very specific cosmic geography featuring the Milky Way and the constellations of Orion and Cygnus
Finally, he will show that the physiology of the Denisovans leads us to conclude that they were of striking appearance and, in some cases, were of extreme size and stature. Were they the origin behind universal stories of giants and, in particular, the Thunder People and Stone Giants of First Nations tradition? Presented by Andrew Collins.
