Death Is An Illusion: The Survival of Consciousness

Death Is An Illusion
The Survival of Consciousness


By Else Byskov, M.A. & B.A

It is now close to three decades since Raymond Moody’s groundbreaking book “Life After Life” was published, and during the years since its publication serious research into the phenomenon of the near-death experience (NDE) has taken place. The research has described the many aspects of the NDE and has established it as a real phenomenon, which can no longer be written off as hallucinations, hypoxia, an overdose of medication or the result of a stimulation of the temporal lobes. Furthermore the research has studied the many life-changing effects of the NDE, its effects on relationships and its potential for helping the dying through the gates of death. But we still do not have any clear idea of how to explain how we can be alive outside our physical body. And as long as we cannot define what survives in scientific terms it is difficult to silence the skeptics.

            There is an old saying, which states, “When the pupil is ready, the teacher will appear”, and it seems that help in determining what is actually going on during a NDE has been offered to us from a quite unexpected quarter. I think that none of the NDE researchers had expected to receive a helping hand from a Danish mystic, but nevertheless the work of the Danish mystic Martinus (1890-1981) (1) offers a logical and scientific explanation to what survives and what happens during a NDE.

When we look at a living body and a corpse it is obvious that the physical ingredients in the two are identical. Both the living body and the corpse have skin, brain, heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, blood etc. When physically there is no difference between a living body and a corpse, then it becomes clear that whatever it is that makes the body come alive cannot be physical.

This means that we should be looking for a non-physical “substance” to account for what constitutes the dissimilarity between a living body and a corpse. Does such a non-physical “substance” exist? Indeed it does, and we have known of its existence for more than a hundred years. We know that energy exists and that it is not something, which we can see or hold in our hand. But still we know that energy exists, because it is measurable and because we can be sure about its existence through its effects. 

According to Martinus a living being has a double analysis. It is a physical being, but it is primarily an electrical being. Because it is first and foremost an electrical being it is also more than its physical body. Today there is probably nobody who will deny that the human body is surrounded by a field of energy. This field of energy is not restricted to the boundaries of the body, but it transgresses the body and surrounds it as what has become known as the aura. The aura consists of different energies, which organize themselves in a field around the body. Martinus denominates these energies as ray-formed matter. It is irrefutable that the energy field around a living being exists and as it is not “nothing”, but “something” which can both be photographed and measured it can be referred to as a type of matter. Energy is not “nothing” in spite of being both invisible and intangible, and as its existence is irrefutable, we may go as far as saying that it is a type of matter. It is a massless type of matter, but still it is matter because it is not “nothing”, but “something”, and this “something” is both useful, measurable and manipulable.

Martinus says that the states of matter (solid, liquid and gaseous) cannot be reduced to three, but that a fourth state of matter, the ray-formed state, consisting of energy, must be added to our list of states of matter. Furthermore Martinus says that the ray-formed state is the first and primary state, because all matter in the universe consists first and foremost of energy.  This has been confirmed by Einstein in his famous equation: E=MC2. Energy equals matter times the square of C, C being the speed of light. The energy in any particle of matter is equal to its mass multiplied by the square of the velocity of light. What this equation tells us is that matter is nothing but a form of energy. The mass of a particle is actually energy. This means that physical matter is a result of a condensation of energy and that energy is what everything physical consists of at the end of the day. According to Martinus energy or ray-formed matter is the upper tier of matter, the “substance” of which everything else consists in its final analysis.

            The aura or energy field surrounding the human body can be photographed using a technique, which is a refinement of the invention of the Russian scientist Semyon Kirlian.       

            The energy field is an electrical reality, it is not non-existent and there is nothing mysterious or strange about it. It is there even though we cannot see it, but as it can be visualized through the above-mentioned technique, and as it is measurable it is futile to claim that it is not there. The human energy field consists of ray-formed matter and this type of matter has been classified according to its wavelength in what the science of physics has termed the electromagnetic spectrum. In the electromagnetic spectrum we find long and short radio waves, microwaves, infrared waves, ultraviolet waves, x-rays and gamma rays. The human energy field has been classified according to its wavelength as belonging to the infra-red section of the electromagnetic spectrum.

            So far, so good. We have established that our body is surrounded by a field of energy, but what does that mean? What is it and what importance does it have? Actually its importance is huge. We have already seen that energy is the primary type of matter, but furthermore energy has an all-important characteristic: it contains information. This is pointed out by Martinus, and it can be confirmed by science through the work of for instance Jacques Benveniste and Karl Pribram, who both affirm the fundamental information-carrying characteristic of energy.

So our body is surrounded by a field of energy, which contains information. This can be substantiated by the following observations. We now know that our thoughts are measurable. When we place electrodes on the head we can measure thought activity. When a thought is measurable it is because it is of an electrical nature. If a thought were not of an electrical nature it would not be measurable with the instruments used. This means that a thought is an electrical impulse. An electrical impulse is a string of energy or ray-formed matter containing information. As the energy field is a conglomeration of strings of energy this means that the energy field surrounding the body is a conglomeration of thoughts. It is this field of thoughts that constitutes our consciousness. The energy field is identical to our consciousness.

This again means that our consciousness is not seated in the brain, but in the energy field. Energy has an almost infinite capacity for storage of information and it is in this “storage room” surrounding our body that our consciousness is seated. So our consciousness is distributed throughout the energy field that surrounds the body. This may seem controversial but it has been confirmed by various researchers such as Wilder Penfield, Karl Lashley and Karl Pribram whose research has shown that neither memories nor consciousness can be pinpointed to any specific position in the brain. Martinus says that the brain functions like a kind of receiver for the electrical impulses of the field. But the impulses or thoughts do not originate in the brain, the impulses only enter the physical body through specific entrance points in the brain cortex.

            Energy contains information but at the same time it contains force. We all know that there is force in energy and it is this force that we make use of in all our electrical appliances. So the characteristic of energy is double: it contains information and it contains force. This means that a thought both carries information and force at the same time. According to Martinus the energy in our thoughts is the same as our life force. The energy field is a field of thoughts and thus it is the seat of our consciousness, but at the same time it constitutes our life force. The human energy field is both the seat of our consciousness and the seat of our life force.

In a body that is alive the energy field is in operation in and around the body. But energy is not something that we can hold in our hand and it does not originate in nor is it anchored in the physical body. We know that energy can exist independently of physical matter and indeed that a field of energy can exist without any type of anchoring in physical matter. This means that the human energy field can be in existence even when it is not hooked up to a physical body.


When we die the energy field does not cease to exist. At the moment of death the energy field is severed from the physical body, but the energy does not cease to exist in exactly the same way as the energy that lights up our lamp does not cease to exist when we turn off the lamp. The energy field, which gives both consciousness and life force to the body, does not originate in the body and it continues to exist even though the body dies. Indeed it is when the energy field is withdrawn from the body that death occurs. It is when the energy field is severed from the body that the flat line appears on the electrocardiograph indicating that there is no longer an electrical current present to make the body function.

But as the energy field contains not only consciousness with all the information that is relevant to the individual (its memories, personality traits, talents, dispositions and habits, fears and phobias, tastes and tendencies, level of morality, emotions, level of intelligence and sense of self) but furthermore the very force that makes the body come alive, it is logical that the field does not wane or collapse just because the body dies. The field is life force. We know from the first law of thermodynamics that energy cannot be created, nor destroyed, so we have no reason to suppose that the energy field will dissolve when the physical body dies. As the energy field contains our consciousness with all the information about the person we call “I”, and furthermore contains its life force, this “I” survives the death of the body. This means that the core of who we are is the energy field, it is our essential self, our “I”, and this “I” will feel just the same after the severance from the physical body and just as alive as when it was inside the body because the “I” consists of something that is not physical. This is, of course, just as the near-death experiences say.

The physical body is “only” an instrument for the self or “I” which it uses for its manifestation on the physical plane as long as this instrument is serviceable. When the instrument is no longer serviceable, the “I” will release itself from the body, but as the “I” consists of something, which is not physical, the “I” is beyond the reach of physical injury. If we define the energy field with the “I” in religious terms and say that it is identical to the soul we are standing on firm scientific ground when we say that the soul survives the death of the body, indeed we can confirm the eternal nature of the soul when we know that energy cannot be created nor destroyed.

The human energy field is an electrical reality and like all other electrical phenomena it vibrates on a specific wavelength, defined by its particular combination of energies. It is a well-known fact that like wavelengths attract each other. The consequence of the workings of this fundamental physical law (the law of attraction and repulsion) in relation to the human energy field is double. Firstly it means that we will, while we are still in the physical body, automatically be attracted to other individuals whose energy field vibrates on a wavelength similar to our own.

We all know this and we feel that there are some people with whom we are on wavelength and others with whom we are not, but this has mostly been considered as nothing but a saying. However, this can be substantiated as a result of the law stating that like wavelengths attract each other. Secondly the wavelength on which our energy field or thought matter vibrates will be decisive the moment it is severed from the physical body, because due to the fact that like wavelengths attract each other, our energy field or “I” will automatically be attracted to a wavelength in “empty space” similar to its own.

We now know that “empty space” is not empty at all, but full of energy or ray-formed matter. This energy is the same as thought or consciousness matter and once our “I” is no longer anchored in the physical body it will automatically be attracted to a wavelength in “empty space” similar to its own. This automatic attraction or transfer of our energy field to a similar wavelength can very well be what the near-death experiencers feel as a rapid passing through a tunnel to a destination of light. And because there are many different wavelengths in “empty space” and as these consist of thought matter there are also many different destinations there. These destinations can be conceived of as “realms” of ray-formed matter, they are made up of the thought matter of all those individuals that are on the same wavelength and they will be experienced as an outer, visible reality by the being that no longer has a physical body.

As there are many different wavelengths, there are both heavenly and not so heavenly (“hellish”) destinations and whether we go to one or the other is defined by the contents of our own thought matter. The kind, loving and altruistic being will be attracted to a different wavelength than the angry, hateful and egoistic being due to the law of attraction and repulsion.

It has been stated that the energy field is the same as our consciousness and that it is the seat of the soul, containing both life force and all the information about the individual we call “I”. According to Martinus this information has been accumulated over a whole series of former lives and he points out that neither who we are, what we are doing here and the shape of our fate can be understood in the perspective of a single life on earth. We are eternal beings on a never-ending journey through physical and spiritual realms. The core of our being, our individual “I” is the same from life to life, but for each life we live on the physical plane we add new talents and abilities, we refine our moral, we develop our intelligence and intuition, we gradually outlive our animal tendencies, but we are basically and fundamentally the same “I” from life to life. Reincarnation is an absolutely fundamental process and all life forms from atoms, molecules, cells, plants, animals and humans reincarnate. 

This has, of course, huge implications for our understanding of the process of embryo genesis. The information present in the energy field of the “I” is absolutely essential to embryo genesis. The egg and the sperm cell cannot do the job of creating a new human being alone. The Human Genome Project has shown that the genes alone do not hold the key to understanding life. Not only is the gene pool of humans 99% identical to that of mice, but a gene is a recipe for a protein, and everything that we are cannot be explained on the basis of protein structures. There are non-gene regions of the genome, regulatory elements, which orchestrate cell differentiation and gene expression and these elements have not yet been explained. These regulatory elements are, according to Martinus, the huge accumulation of information embedded in the energy field of the being about to reincarnate. The field holds the plan for the creation of a new body and without this plan no new baby could come into existence.

Martinus explains that during the height of intercourse, the orgasm, the intercourse partners emanate a strong energy of a highly spiritual nature. This strong energy attracts the discarnate being that is “ripe” for reincarnation and due to the law of attraction and repulsion the discarnate being will be attracted to parents with an energy combination similar to its own. Once fertilization has taken place it is the information embedded in the energy field of the incoming soul that will be the decisive factor in the creation of the new baby. The sperm and the egg cell only initiate the process, but the information in the energy field of the being now about to reincarnate is essential to the process of cell differentiation, to gene selection and expression. The energy field constitutes the dynamic that orchestrates and regulates the process of creation and leads the single cell of the zygote to become a fully finished child consisting of 6000 billion cells.

The new baby will be created almost completely in favor of the discarnate being now in the process of reincarnation, and as the energy field holds all the talents and characteristics that the being has developed and refined in former lives, it is the energy field that delivers not only the characteristic personality traits of the “I”, but also the consciousness of the new baby. If things did not take place in this way, how can we explain the presence of a consciousness in a new baby, not to mention its specific personality and the talents that it does not share with its parents?

The importance of the information embedded in the energy field is not only expressed during the process of embryo genesis, but indeed all through life. We know that the average life span of a cell is approximately three months. We also know that 10.000.000 cells die in our body every second and are replaced by new. Recent research has pointed out that also our brain cells are renewed all through life. When our whole body is in a constant process of renewal this means that the body I have today and the body I had a year ago do not have a single cell in common. Not a single cell! But where then, is the constant of my being when all the physical matter of my body is continuously renewed? How can I still be the same person when the physical matter of which my body consists is constantly renewed? The answer is simple. The constant is not in the physical body, but in the energy field, which constitutes our consciousness, our life force and holds all the characteristics about the person we call “I”.  When all the physical matter of our body is under a constant process of renewal it is obvious that we are more than our physical body.

The essence of who we are, our “I”, is not physical, but electrical and as this electrical core of who we are, our energy field, constitutes both consciousness and life force, we are fundamentally the same and equally alive whether we have physical body or not. 

1.                  Martinus (Thomsen), Danish philosopher and mystic who lived his whole life from 1890 to 1981 in Denmark. He was born in very humble circumstances and was trained as a dairyman. He had no formal education and had never studied anything when in March of 1921, at the age of thirty, he had a deep spiritual experience which enabled him to see beyond the physical plane. He was able to see the whole of the metaphysical, energy-based world that lies beyond the physical plane. He was hooked up to an immense, divine bank of data from which he could draw freely. With this insight he was able to present a complete, holistic world picture based on logic. In the course of his life he wrote more than 9000 pages in which he presented his world picture. His main work of 3000 pages is called “Livets Bog” (“The Book of Life”) and has 7 volumes. In addition to this he wrote “The Eternal World Picture” (5 volumes), 30 other titles plus a large number of articles. His complete work has been published with the general title “The Third Testament”, but it is not a basis for a new religion. Martinus’ work has been written for the intellectual person, who has outlived the ability to believe in the religions and it can be said to constitute a basis for a merger of science and spirituality.

The First Race: Out-of-Australia, Not Africa!

The First Race: Out-of-Australia, Not Africa!



By Steve Strong

Over the last decade, all manner of unexpected archaeological discoveries have led to many experts questioning much of what was assumed to be fact. Recent findings and field-work relating to little ‘hobbits’ in Flores Island, Siberian hominids with mtDNA connections to people of Papua New Guinea, the exclusivity of our distinct genetic Homo sapiens code being compromised by a 4% Neanderthal input, and a variety of unexpected findings have called into question many elemental assumptions held about the past.

Professor Clive Gamble (Southampton University) succinctly summarised the current impasse and polarisation this has caused, when declaring we have to construct “a completely new map of the world and how we peopled it.”1 Granted, our response to Gamble’s call may seem radical, however, these discoveries, found not only in America but throughout the entire Indo-Pacific Region, all point to the same ancient southern inspiration.

After extensive consultation and research, we are of the opinion that at some time in the distant past, no less than 50,000 years ago and possibly much earlier, Aboriginal men and women set sail from Australia and began exploring foreign lands. They were the bearers of new insights and options, and bequeathed humanity the cornerstones of civilisation: religion, culture, gender equality, art, sailing, democracy, astronomy, surgery, and their genes.

Australian Aboriginal guardians of traditional Lore and Law have made it clear to us that they are indeed the “First Race.”2 They were not, as assumed by some of the general public, ignorant savages stagnating in their primitive inertia. As highly respected Dhungutti Elder Rueben Kelly states, “Centuries ago you white people chose the path of science and technology. That path will destroy the planet. Our role is to protect the planet. We are hoping you will discover that before it’s too late.”3

Unlike others out in the field or laboratory, we’ve ‘discovered’ nothing: our role is to act as scribes and faithfully present their history. The rest is easy: find white-fella proof to substantiate black-fella truth.

Questioning Out-of-Africa

Before setting off on this ancient journey there is one destination and exodus that needs to be repositioned: Africa. According to academics and archaeological texts, Africa is the place from where modern humans evolved then spread their genes throughout the continents. The Out-of-Africa theory has over the years, since first proposed, transformed into fact.

One of the original papers laying claim to charting our ancient ancestor’s movements and origin, The Recent African Genesis of Humans, written by Professors Alan Wilson and Rebecca Cann, is acknowledged as the closing chapter in this mystery. However, amongst the absolutes was one qualifier that has been conveniently and repeatedly overlooked. Wisely, with the benefit of hindsight, the authors stated Homo sapiens “probably,”4 never definitely, evolved in Africa.

Wilson and Cann proposed all modern humans shared the same ancient mother, who they named Eve, and according to their calculations she lived in Africa at sometime between 150-200,000 years ago. Of crucial importance are two of the three assumptions that underpin their mathematics.

The aboriginal (sic) populations of New Guinea and Australia are estimated to have been founded less than 50,000 to 60,000 years ago. The amount of evolution that has since occurred in each of those places seems about one third of that shown by the whole human species. Accordingly, we can infer that Eve lived three times 50,000 to 60,000 years ago, or roughly 150,000 to 180,000 years ago.5

This declaration was regarded as the final word, and the resolution of “15 years of disagreement”6 between two branches of science. Wilson and Cann triumphantly proclaimed victory on behalf of the molecular geneticists declaring that “we won the argument, when the palaeontologists admitted we had been right and they had been wrong.”7

With the case closed and bragging rights secured in perpetuity, science had once again provided certainty and an African ancestry. Or so it seemed. But not long after their paper was published Rebecca Cann realised they were mistaken. In 1982 she examined the mitochondrial DNA of 112 Indigenous people, including twelve full-descent Aboriginals, and the results were in total opposition to what they assumed was fully resolved.

Nevertheless, Cann was obliged to contradict a central tenet of their paper, stating that “mitochondrial DNA puts the origin of Homo sapiens much further back and indicates that the Australian Aboriginals arose 400,000 years ago from two distinct lineages, far earlier than any other racial type.”8 Not only was the emergence of Aboriginal Homo sapiens “far earlier”9 than any Africans, she provided a sequence and motherland.

The Australian racial group has a much higher number of mutations than any other racial group, which suggests that the Australians split off from a common ancestor about 400,000 years ago. By the same theory, the Mongoloid originated about 100,000 years ago, and the Negroid and Caucasian groups about 40,000 years ago.10

The realignment and reversals were of immediate concern to Alan Wilson. If Cann was correct in detecting a “much higher number of mutations”11 they may as well tear up their original paper.

Desperate to resolve the obvious inconsistencies, Wilson made two visits to Australia. In 1987, Wilson sampled the mtDNA of 21 full-descent Australian Aboriginals and provided 15 different strands. This number was well outside what anyone expected and compelled Wilson to unconvincingly conclude there were more than 15 pregnant females on the first boat. A second visit in 1989 increased the crew size to levels that quite literally sank the boat as it entered the water, and forced Wilson to abandon Africa as the place where Homo sapiens originated. From a second sampling of ten, a similar percentage (70%) of mutation was present. Upon receiving the results of his second mtDNA sampling Wilson immediately conceded the Out-of-Africa theory was wrong.

The math wasn’t complicated: the agreed rate of mtDNA mutation for every new strand is 3,500 years, therefore 22 x 3,500 = 77,000 years. Wilson realised if he returned and increased the population surveyed, so too would the crew-size increase. He was left with no other option but to dismiss their original paper.

It seems too far out to admit, but while Homo erectus was muddling along in the rest of the world, a few erectus had got to Australia and did something dramatically different – not even with stone tools – but it is there that Homo sapiens have emerged and evolved… Homo sapiens would have evolved free from competition out of a small band of Homo erectus 400,000 years ago.12

Sadly, and somewhat puzzlingly, these findings were mostly ignored. In fact, opposition to the Out-of-Africa theory lost momentum. Perhaps this timid climate goes some way towards explaining the reactions to Alan Thorne’s research into the genetics and antiquity of Lake Mungo Man (WLH3). Re-dated to be over 60,000 years old and the oldest Homo sapiens yet found, this in itself raises serious doubts relating to the credentials of any theory claiming the first mariners reached the northern parts of Australia 60,000 years ago. Thousands of kilometres from any potential point of entry, the practicalities involved in reaching this distant in-land lake within days after disembarking are insurmountable. This date, coupled with the discovery that WLH3 had an “extinct DNA”13 which does not resemble any other population, surely calls into question the reality of an African migration.

Referring back to Wilson and Cann’s original calculations, their proposed timing of somewhere between 50-60,000 years stands on no less shaky ground than their genetic miscalculation. There are at least ten Australian sites claimed to be older than 60,000 years, granted every date is challenged by conservative critics, but even so, all are the products of respected academics.

What needs to be accepted is that if just one date proves to be correct, irrespective of whatever judgment is passed on the other nine, it can be confidently declared as a fact that Australia was not settled by African Homo sapiens 60,000 years ago. Whether the winning site turns out to be Lake George-fire-stick farming (120,000 years); Lake Eyre-skullcap (135,000 years); Jinmium-tools (176,000 years); Panaramittee-rock-engraving of saltwater crocodile (75,000 years); Rottnest Island-tools (70,000 years); Devonport-rock-engravings (>115,000 years); Jinmium-art (75-116,000 years); Great Barrier Reef-fire-stick farming (185,000 years); Lake Mungo (WLH3)-complete skeleton (61-65,000 years); or (WLH1)-cremated bones (61,000 years); one out of the ten is sufficient to deny African entry.


The First Americans

Compounding the inconsistencies of the Out-of-Africa theory is the recent discoveries of “hundreds of skeletal remains”14 in America that “look like Australian Aborigines.”15 

In the October/November edition of Cosmos, Jacqui Hayes presented a compelling morphological case in support of Australian Aboriginal presence in America. According to Hayes, Aboriginal settlement of the Americas began at an indeterminate time before the second migration of people “with distinctive Mongoloid features”16 and left, within her by-line, a series of unresolved questions.

When stating that “startling new finds suggest Australia’s first people made it all the way to South America more than 11,000 years ago,”17 the narrative is incomplete. How far back did these Aboriginal settlements span, and were other locations settled? If indeed Hayes is right in that Australian Aboriginal people were in America, any date obtained beyond 11,000 years must be due to the actions of people bearing Australian Aboriginal genes.

The impossibility of any African migration, genes or antigens entering America, was confirmed through the examination of Aboriginal bones establishing the presence of distinctive antigens.

Arnaiz-Vilena and his team looked at the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system, which is a group of proteins on the surface of human immune cells. The HLAs are what the doctors test for to determine whether one person’s tissues are compatible for organ or bone transplants. HLA is a nuclear marker giving an even genealogy and genetic history for both sexes. The best test showing that HLA is a good genetic marker for studying population relatedness is that it usually correlates with geography.18

As expected, the first nominee was Australian, but just as importantly the comparative results bore witness to one notable omission: it seems the Africans forgot to sign on.

“So what did they find? Unique signatures only found in Australian Aborigines, Pacific Islanders, and peoples in Asia and even in Europe.”19 Missing in action and mention, the non-appearance of African HLA is yet another inconvenient piece of evidence that bears an Australian imprint.

When recalibrating this Australian Aboriginal/American time-line, dates just exceeding the maximum Clovis (Mongoloid) entry date are certainly inconvenient, but not demanding of tearing out pages. Corroborating evidence of Aboriginal presence during the 10,000 years before the second migration from Asian began can be found at Tlapacoya, 21,700-25,000 B.P., Los Toldos Cave, Patagonia, 14-15,000 B.P., “Meadowbank Rockshelter 19,000 B.P. (southwest Pennsylvania), Tibito 14,400 B.P. (Columbia), Walker 15,000 B.P. (Minnesota) and Mud Lake 13,450 B.P. (Wisconsin).”20

But it doesn’t stop there. Professor Silvia Gonzales, who is a leading advocate of the Out-of-Australia theory, was quite staggered21 by the dates obtained when analysing footprints found in a layer of volcanic ash at Lake Vasequillo (Mexico). “A variety of prints (human and animal) captured in this layer of rock were dated using O.S.L.”22 She found, much to her understandable surprise, that 40,000 years marked the “last time that these sediments were lit by the sun’s rays or the last time that the material was heated.”23 Gonzales is adamant these are Australian Aboriginal footprints, and that they reached America by boat through means of “island hopping”24 around the Pacific Basin.

Such a date, 40,000 years, pushes the boundaries and affirms an extensive Aboriginal tenure, and does not stand alone. The corroborative timing at Albert Goodyear’s site, accentuated by the considerable distance between locations, cannot be a coincidence.

Goodyear had been working at an archaeological site on the Savannah river, near Topper. It was agreed all the available evidence from the Clovis site had been gathered and their work was complete… He kept digging for another four metres before an assortment of stone tools, along with a hearth, were unearthed. A small piece of charcoal was then analysed by counting the residual Carbon 14 and a date of no less than 37,000 years was deemed appropriate.25

Uncomfortable as these dates are in relation to when ancient Australian Aboriginals first came to America, it gets worse for any clinging to traditional theories.

Not far from the Lake Vasequillo footprints Gonzales investigated is another site that was deliberately ignored for close to 30 years after a comprehensive investigation conducted by Cynthia Irwin-Williams. The dates are so sensational and numerous, and so obviously associated with objects made by Homo sapiens artists, the archaeologists downed tools and clipboards and vowed never to return. The dates returned by a variety of sound geological analyses were far too ancient, not only for occupation, but well outside the assumed period when Homo sapiens first appeared. To some extent the issue isn’t just a matter of whether these numbers are feasible, but more a case of open antagonism between two competing branches of science.

Christopher Hardaker, author of The First American, created a fictional conversation between the two competing parties that graphically highlights how the argument over which group of academics is right has blinded the combatants.

ARCHAEOLOGIST: You are asking us to believe that the sophisticated art and technology of the Upper Palaeolithic was actually invented over 200,000 years ago in Central Mexico by Homo erectus? Ridiculous. GEOLOGIST: You are asking us to believe that Science is off by a magnitude of 10? Ridiculous.26

Often the result of cutting-edge technology, the chemicals analysed and computations made came from extremely reputable institutions and individuals. Some of the offending techniques and dates (which came from the layer of volcanic ash and debris deposited above the artefacts/or footprints) include: Uranium Series Dating (200,000 years); Zircon Fission Track (170-640,000 years); mineral solutions (200,000 years); Diatom analysis (80,000 years); U-Th/He (200,000 years); tephrahydration (250,000 years); magnetic shifts in rocks (790,000 years); and argon argon (1,300,000 years).

The facts, and large figures, demand a response. What if just one date is actually right? Does that mean Homo sapiens were, as Christopher Hardaker claims, responsible for “600,000 year old art?”27 If so, does this alone suggest the often sniggered at talk of Mu, Atlantis and other ancient civilisations has real geological substance?

As to whether Gonzales’ “island hopping”28 route from Australia, up through Asia, Japan, Siberia then America is plausible, it is often said a picture can act as a worthy substitute for quite a few words. The photograph (see page 27) of the Japanese full-descent Ainu Elder was taken in the late 19th century by German anthropologist Dr. Hermann Klaatsch. The physical characteristics displayed in this photograph, in association with the recent discovery of “a very well-preserved skeleton from Gua Gunung, Malaysia,”29 resonates to one ancient southern inspiration. The Malaysian “specimen is aged 10,200 B.P. and is said to be a late representative of a non-specialised morphology, similar to Australian Aborigines.”30


The First Boat

For the appearance of a population “similar to Australian”31 Aboriginals in Malaysia, Japan, America, or any other place, a boat is needed. The oft-proposed settlement of Australia from Africa by ramshackle raft, or through desperately clinging on to driftwood during storms, doesn’t measure up.

This vessel must be able to withstand monsoons and weeks at sea, and accommodate a crew of close to 20 adults to negate in-breeding thus successfully repopulate an uninhabited continent. Nowhere today is anyone going to discover the actual ancient wooden remains of such an ancient sophisticated “ocean-going”32 vessel. But if seeking out everything else bar the planks there is only one place to look.

Graham Walsh was “the widely recognised authority on the intriguing Bradshaw art of the Kimberley area… Within this area, he has discovered the oldest paintings of boats in the world, dated at a minimum age of 17,000 years, but with the strong possibility of being up to 50,000 years old…”33 Walsh insisted that the “high prow of the boat”34 is “unnecessary for boats used in calm, inland waters. The design suggests it was used on the open ocean.”35 Walsh was quite shocked by the function, antiquity, and most importantly dimensions of these vessels: “they are massive boats, totally alien.”36 Moreover not only was the sophistication and technology exhibited difficult for Walsh to assimilate, he still had to account for the reasons why there were “two paintings of ocean-going boats, one with 23 people on board, the other 29.”37

These are ideal numbers as foundation populations when sailing towards distant lands, however diagrams and specifications do not make a boat. To have a clever idea is a promising first step, but there are some practicalities to be addressed before any idea takes form. There are materials, tools, and navigation skills required which supposedly did not exist for at least another 20,000 years. Irrespective of what is assumed, the first tool needed to build a ship that can comfortably cater for 30 people, is an axe. Wood in its prime, not the rotting logs that fall, is essential in manufacturing a vessel strong enough to sail across oceans.

It should come as no surprise that the oldest axe in the world, dated at 40,000 years, was found at Huon Terrace PNG (which was part of the Australian mainland until 8,000 years ago), others discovered in Jaowyn land, Northern Territory (35,500 years), at Sandy Creek, Queensland (32,000 years) and Malangangerr Northern Territory (23,000), are all at least 8,000 years older than the first axe found outside Australia (Niah Cave, Sarawak, 15,000 years).

With axe at hand, plans on the wall, and overseas bookings made, there still remains one vital navigational skill any journey beyond landfall demands. Hugh Cairns’ book Dark Sparklers is the first and only publication dedicated to the sharing of traditional Aboriginal astronomical knowledge. Cairns won the trust of Wardaman Elder Bill Harnley, who spoke of his ancestral knowledge of the stars, “great black shapes,”38 the movements and constellations in between, and of up “on top.”39 According to Cairns, there have been Aboriginal astronomers for “over 30,000 years.”40

Not only the Pacific, but the Indian Ocean, was a path used to navigate then share so many esoteric gifts, technologies, guidelines, and of course, genes.

“Dr. Raghavendra Rao and researchers from the Indian-backed Anthropological Survey of India project found unique mutations were shared between modern-day Indians and Aborigines.”41 They “identified seven people from central Dravidian and Austro-Asiatic tribes who shared genetic traits only found in Aborigines.”42 

Much earlier linguistic studies of the Dravidian language had already identified the same relationship. Dravidian “fishermen of the Madras coast use almost the same words for I, thou, he, we, and you as some Aboriginal tribes. Many other key words in the Dravidian dialects are identical in Tasmanian Aboriginal terms both in pronunciation and meaning.”43 

It needs to be appreciated that Tasmanian culture and language is a relatively recent event, and the island is the outcome of the final thawing at the end of the last Ice Age when the seas covered the low plains between Victoria and Tasmania. Over the last 8,000 years this isolation has been instrumental in the development of a distinctive Tasmanian culture.44

With a language that came into existence no earlier than 8,000 years ago forming a substantial part of the basic Dravidian vocabulary, this mtDNA connection strongly suggests the Australian Aboriginals kept in contact with India for some considerable time.

Especially since “Australian canoes are constructed identically to those of the coastal Dravidian tribes of India, and wild tribes in the Deccan region of India are the only culture known to use the boomerang outside Australia.”45 The oldest boomerang discovered in the world was found at Wyrie Swamp, South Australia, and is dated at 10,200 years.

The dingo, accepted to have been brought into Australia from somewhere in Asia about 6,000 years ago, only strengthens the possibility of an extended Australo-Indian link. It would appear that the Dravidians adopted the Australian boomerang to hunt with, chose their better designed canoes to assist in fishing, and as is often the case when two cultures first meet, shared technology, friendship and genes.

There is so much more to this ancient Aboriginal narrative. At best we have provided a brief geographical overview of where ancient Aboriginal people sailed, and hopefully presented evidence validating their belief that they are descendents of the “First Race.”46 

Whether the African strand of Homo sapiens emerged 40,000 years ago is of no account, our focus is on the much earlier Australian genes, journeys and heritage. We have examined a few of the locations reached, but as for the religious legacy of the Dreaming as evidenced through the nine shared mystical principles, underpinned by equality of gender and species, that is yet another chapter of an ancient story that spans eons and geography. Their intimate awareness of the divine, along with the lesser gifts of sailing, astronomy, brain surgery, penicillin, burial/cremation/embalming, amputations, axe-making, democracy, bows and arrows, and so much more, is part of a forgotten origin that deserves to be heard once more.
