Unlike most cultures, the Japanese culture has preserved its native myths as a connected system, and as a system Japanese myths have much to say about the human condition in the cosmos. The series, Mythological Essays by Prof. Metevelis explores what this myth system seeks to tell us. Volume One, Mythical Stone, focuses on how the substance of stone works in the genesis and structure of the cosmos, and how it relates to establishing the human condition. The volume also delves into how stone came to possess its mythical qualities. The series of essays took twenty years and long residence in Japan to research. It treats Japanese myths in the context of world mythology, and is interdisciplinary, oriented toward mythologists, historical folklorists, historians of religion, archaeoastronomers, Japanologists, and anyone interested in East Asian culture or history.

Ancient civilizations generated many innovations that are difficult to explain, such as the remarkable mathematical accuracy of the pyramids of Giza, the man-made fertile soil of the Amazon known as terra preta, and massive stone monuments too heavy to move in Peru and Lebanon, among other places. Given that modern science cannot explain these mysterious phenomena, one theory holds that ancient aliens were responsible for them. This volume examines the credibility of various paranormal hypotheses, giving readers the opportunity to explore the greatest puzzles of antiquity.

Have we been visited by extraterrestrial beings? Did these “ancient aliens” contribute to the birth of human civilization? Do our ancient monuments contain evidence of their presence? The Ancient Alien Question reveals an array of astonishing truths, including: A radically different understanding of the pyramids and how they were constructed The origins of crystal skulls and how they were found The extraordinary stories behind monuments such as the Nazca lines and Puma Punku, and who built them How extraterrestrials came to our planet and the evidence that supports this Analyzing the historical and archaeological evidence, Philip Coppens demonstrates that there is substantial proof that our ancestors were far more technologically advanced than currently accepted, and that certain cultures interacted with non-human intelligences. Our ancestors were clearly not alone. Forty years after Erich von Däniken posed these questions in Chariots of the Gods, Coppens provides clear and concise answers to the great historical enigmas in a most accessible and readable format. Your view of human history will never be the same again!
