William Glyn-Jones is behind the website arcadian-dreamtime.co.uk and writes about ancient astronomy, star maps and mythology. He joins the program to discuss his research into star maps and art from the Paleolithic to the renaissance. Topics Discussed: constellation art, hermetic philosophy, morphic resonance, Rupert Sheldrake, Plato, dreamtime, Paul Deveroux, initiation, star-maps, constellations, Orion correlation theory, alchemy, six dimensional sight, the ancient mindset, the Ethiopian Story by Heliodorus, Ethiopian bull leaping, Perseus, Andromeda, Clash of the Titants, Ymir, Yama, Gemini, Lascaux, France cave painting, symbolism of the bull, the Pleiades, the Christian nativity scene, Virgo and Aries, traditions and ceremonies from the ancient world into Christianity, the Renaissance, the De Medici, the Corpus Hermeticum, Nicolas Poussin's painting "The Shepherds of Arcadia" and much more. In the second hour, we proceed to discuss Ymir, Yama, Gemini and the cave paintings in Lascaux, France. What is the symbolism and significance of the bull, the Pleiades, the stick man and the bird depicted on the cave walls? The cave art is believed to be about 17 000 years old and we connect it with some of the oldest art in Egypt that is believed to be about 15 000 years old, very similar in style. Then, we talk about the Christian nativity scene, with the manger, the Ox, the kneeling man, Virgo and Aries. Is it an astrological motif? Topics Discussed: cave painting in Lascaux, oldest art in Egypt, Europe-Egypt connection, post Renaissance, Corpus Hermeticum, aboriginal art and tradition.
