A departure from the normal documentary. A bit of history and culture is always nice.
Cheers on your weekend!

Based on more than two decades of devoted research, mythologist David Talbott reconstructs the cosmic drama when planets hung in the sky close to the earth–an epoch of celestial wonder giving rise to mythological symbols found across the globe in all cultures and religions.
Symbols of an Alien Sky will make known the celestial spectacles and earth-shaking events once recalled by our ancestors. Ancient symbols of these events are all around us; some as icons of the world’s great religions, other have origins that appear to be lost in obscurity.
Cultural history is perceived as fragmented and contradictory. However hidden beneath the fiction are levels of deep agreement between the cultures.
According to David Talbott, these “archetypes” allow for a drastic reinterpretation of both human and planetary history. Rival regional symbols are aspects of “one story told around the world,” a story both awe inspiring and terrifying.
Perhaps the most compelling discovery comes from the sciences.
Independent investigation over the past 12 years has confirmed that the celestial formations Talbott reconstructed—all from historical evidence—precisely match the behavior of electric discharge in the plasma laboratory and in remote space.
A convergence of historical evidence and plasma science has occurred.
The converging research points toward planetary instability and intense electrical events in ancient times.
Why did every ancient civilization celebrate a former “Age of the Gods”, an age claimed to have ended in earth threatening disaster?
What was meant by the lost “Golden Age?”
Why did ancient sky worshippers refer to Saturn as “the sun?”
Why was Venus worshipped as the “Mother Goddess?”
And why did both Old and New World astronomers celebrate the planet Mars as a great warrior whose battles shook the heavens?
