Listen to the Show

Where Did the Road Go? Show Archive 


On this show we talk to E.A. James Swagger, author of The Newgrange Sirius Mystery: Linking Passage Grave Cosmology with Dogon Symbology. Among other things, we discuss;

  • What the passage graves are.
  • Who may have built them.
  • Why, and what do they really do?
  • The advanced knowledge required to build what they did.
  • The acoustic properties.
  • The Artwork associated.
  • Altered States of Consciousness these things may help being about.
  • Connections to Cygnus, Pleiades, and Sirius, and why they were important.
  • Other structures around the world that may have also been built by the same culture.
  • The connections to the Dogon Tribe in Africa and what that may tell us.
  • Velikovsky and Binary Star Theory.
  • The differences between the sites.
This was a fascinating discussion, and as James is working on a new book on the acoustic properties of passage graves, we discussed that as well. You can find his website at www.jamesswagger.com and he does his own podcast as well called Capricorn radio which you can find at www.capricornradio.com. Also, the website for The Newgrange Sirius Mystery can be found at www.newgrangecosmology.com.

Where Did the Road Go? Show Archive

Our first return guest on Where Did the Road Go?, we talk with James Swagger. Since we last spoke, he made a trip to Peru, and not only investigated the sites there, but explored more internally with Ayahuasca. We cover quite a lot of ground in this interview, including previewing what will be in his new book, The Newgrange Acoustics Mystery - Linking Passage Grave Acoustics with Dogon Mythology. We discuss...

 
  • What acoustic properties various sites around the world have.
  • What would they be used for.
  • How are the sites connected?
  • What type of technology would be required to do this?
  • The Hyperboreans and whether they were myth or reality.
  • Structures in Peru.
  • Altered States of Consciousness.
  • Cave Art and it's interpretation.
  • James' exploration of Ayahuasca. 
  • Some of what will be published in his new book and much more...
James' new book should be out in the next few months. www.jamesswagger.com is his website, and you can buy The Newgrange Sirius Mystery on Amazon. You can find a review of said book in our book review section, and we have a previous interview up with James in the Archive. James also has his own radio show called Capricorn Radio

The Newgrange Sirius Mystery: Linking Passage Grave Cosmology with Dogon Symbology by E.A.James Swagger (2012)

This is fascinating, well written, and thoroughly researched. What the Author suggests is that many, if not all, of the passage grave sites in the UK are aligned to various astronomical features. Mainstream archaeology only looks for solar alignments, but James shows that many of these sites are linked to lunar phenomenon, as well as constellations. In particular he draws attention to the connections to the star Sirius.

He spends the first part of the book relating the alignments of the different sites, and showing how each is unique. In the second part of the book he discusses the artwork and it's connections to astronomical arrangements. The third part, he explores the theories of others who have preceded him in this work. Finally, in the last part, he explores his own connections and what they may mean.

This is a short, fairly easy read, although a bit dry at the start, it is interesting all the way through. Despite being an easy read, it is not a work of speculation, it is based on research and fact, and is presented as such. Only at the very end does Mr. Swagger allow himself to speculate a bit, and even that seems rather reserved. An enjoyable and recommended read.
