Classic reading - book list

La Barca de Luna

This blog does not contain intellectual fast food. Even though not always referenced, the texts that I put together are based on a solid, literary basis. Reading books is - in many ways - an important tool to expand knowledge rapidly and profoundly. Most importantly, reading the right books and reading them with an open, inquisitive, flexible mind. Some people tell me that it is not easy to find the right books. I get many requests asking me to suggest literature. Now, I argue that new books are usually not better than old ones. In fact, in my experience, the opposite is the case - the further you go back, the better the books become.

In the following I present a short list of essential classic writings that, in my view, all independent researchers should be aware of . Tons of reproduced, regurgitated rubbish is available to us today via internet. In order to truly learn about our past and about our ancestors and how they lived and thought, it is better to start at the beginning and to read the real thing and to be your own interpreter.

The chain of spiritual myth roughly went as follows:

  • Unified world religion during the golden age
    • Dogon/ Yoruba
      • Ethiopian > Khemet (Egypt) 
        • Gnostic blacks > Hebrew > Hellenistic > Christian > Islam                 
        • Dravidian blacks > Vedic Brahmanism > Hinduism > Buddhism
        • Chinese blacks > Taoism
        • Olmec blacks > Inka, Aztec, Maya, Moundbuilders, Washita
All these systems (and all others on the planet) are connected and thus different expressions of the same ideas. To regard these systems as different, means to block mental access to understanding them. The most rewarding system must naturally be the system of origin, and this is the one which has been perfected (not created) in black Khemet (today Egypt is inhabited by Arab conquerors with light skin, these are not the original inhabitants. Not that skin color means so much to me, it is just that a lot of Masonic propaganda has been placed in Hollywood movies, etc. to fool the world into believing in ancient Egyptians having white skin, which is a lie. Only the last few rulers of the Ptolemaic dynasty had white skin).

I therefore recommend to ultimately focus on the Khemau mythology, but to also get acquainted with the holy writings of other major spiritual disciplines, e.g. Qu`ran, Bible, Zohar, Talmud, Rig Veda, Pistis Sophia, Apocrypha, Pyramid texts, Book of the Dead, Book of Gates, Homeric Hymns, Hermetica, Kybalion, Orphic poems, Avesta, etc.

This will automatically put you into a position of power, simply because you know what you are talking about and you can easily dismantle false arguments. There have always been enlightened individuals speaking out against religious ignorance and madness. The following will highlight some of these brave people and also some of the brilliant minds, who did the opposite and sold out to lies. Some of them might have been what I call useful idiots, others may have taken money or high offices (note how Christian apologists were declared to be "saints"), yet others may have been threatened and have feared for their lives. We will never know for sure, but it is important to read the Christian apologists, just to get all sides of the argumentation.

My list may not be complete but it sure enough provides more reading material than anyone can handle in his spare time in the next couple of years. In today`s time of information overflow and near unlimited access to information, it is easy to download free PDFs of all listed works mentioned below. It may not be possible or absolutely necessary to read all of these writings, but it is very helpful and enlightening to know that these texts exist and to roughly understand the contents. Our world would be a better place, if more people would study these writers, instead of reading modern (fashionable) garbage and Dan Brown nonsense.

Some of the writings, if known to the broad public, would quickly put en end to certain fruitless discussions, for example, whether "Jesus" lived or not (I put this name in quotation marks because the original text never mentions this name, the letter "J" was invented only in the 17th century. Take it as a homework : what was the name mentioned in the original text? Which is the original text?). Philo-Judaeus (see below) would have been a contemporary of this alleged Jesus (misnomer) and Philo wrote extensively about everything of importance that happened during his lifetime, but not a single word about a man named Jesus can be found in his writings. What could this mean?

Other writings reveal how history was written as tool for power and how fake history was created by the ruling elite to support expansion of power, e.g. Flavius Josephus, who invented Jewish history in order to make the Old Testament historic. Why did he do this? Because he was the main author of the New Testament and "Flavius Josephus" was simply one of his many pen names.

Now.....there is no way you can know whether what I have just stated is true or not - unless you pick up the books and read them yourself. Be invited, there is a very rich banquet. The book titles highlighted in yellow are "must reads" in my opinion:

As final note on this reading list. None of the above Caucasian authors were finally able to even remotely touch on the genius of African cosmology and natural science. There is no such thing as Greek philosophy. Our current understanding of history as a whole is wrong. The current history has been designed by Masons, it is a fairy tale. I will further explain true history in following blog entries.

If you want to have true spiritual insight, study the Dogon, the Zulu, the Yoruba and Khemet spiritual cosmologies, this compromises highest science.
