Download and read online The Shining Ones in PDF and EPUB For many years now there has been an upsurge in revelation stories and alternative viewpoints on man's history. People such as Graham Hancock and Lawrence Gardner have brought to light many new ideas and many new problems. Now there is a new theory which is all-encompassing and clearly brings into focus a more sinister reason behind the emergence of civilisation. In his theory on Atlantis Graham Hancock is receiving much admiration and academic acclaim. Standard academic thought is more towards the spontaneous eruption of civilisation across the globe, with little or no explanation of why there are so many similarities between the cultures. Now, Philip Gardiner, in his new book THE SHINING ONES is set to turn even this upon its head. The theory is so simple that it begs the question, why has it not been thought of before? The reason for universal similarity of architecture, language, art, travel and religious belief is quite simply an ancient and secret religious brotherhood who have hidden themselves deep within the symbols, ciphers and codes of our ancient texts for hundreds of years. They held a secret knowledge and power base which spread with them across the globe. The very title that they have given themselves is hidden within the standard text and religious books we use every day -- The Shining Ones. Put like this, the whole thing can sound like an X-Files conspiracy theory. However the author has invested huge amounts of time and energy checking, researching and seeking the advice of academics. Now the theory is attracting the attention of historians who can see that the patterns are as subtle as this author proposes. The fact is, this theory does explain away all the problems with dating and variations that people such as Hancock have come up against. Many academics and especially Egyptologists are now turning to this way of thinking and with Gardiners spirit and broad knowledge in history and language the history of the ancients and the secrets that they hold are becoming more clear. There are of course dissenters. The author has been accosted for his standpoint and there are still those hardened academics and even non-academics who refuse to even listen. However, there is a major TV documentary in pre-production stages and with interviews planned across the nation on radio and TV the message may soon be accepted as a credible theory.

Clews begins with recollections about a childhood largely circumscribed by war, but also sprinkled with such touching moments as sharing the top of her father’s egg on Sunday mornings and the realization that he would carry her when her legs became too tired. As she details life experiences from more than eighty years that include entrance to a university that opened an exciting pathway to an astonishing new world of books and a career in teaching, Clews also offers essays and anecdotes about marriage, family, and the uncertainties and joys that accompany any coming-of-age journey. In this compelling, sometimes humorous memoir, one woman illustrates through her diverse personal experiences how beginnings can ultimately be discovered in endings.

Download and read online The Shining Kubrick vs King A Masterpiece of Modern Horror in PDF and EPUB The basis of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and The Shining by Stephen King is the novel The Shining by Stephen King. Both movies, however, are fundamentally different. Whereas Kubrick tries to put emphasis on the character development of Jack Torrance combining this with unique camera work, music, and various motifs in order to display the real horror coming from Jack himself, King tries to show what happens to a person in an isolated and haunted hotel, emphasizes, however, little Danny and his shining. Thus, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining can be considered a masterpiece of modern horror. King’s version therefore seems like a mere and ordinary copy. This essay compares the two movies of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King. Both films are directly taken from the novel The Shining written by Stephen King in 1977. Stanley Kubrick and Diane Johnson took the book as the basis for the screenplay to Kubrick’s The Shining (1980). They basically stripped everything off the book until the bare character Jack Torrance and his transformation were revealed. They then incorporated several motifs, which will be talked about later. Thus, Kubrick was able to create a movie displaying real horror coming from the mind/soul of a human being and not from ghosts or alien-monsters. Stephen King has been known for not liking and harshly criticising Kubrick’s adaptation of his novel, since he “said that The Shining includes an exploration of alcohol dependence and relationships with parents and children in one's life.” Therefore, Stephen King produced his own TV mini-series of The Shining in 1997 – an exact book to movie adaptation directed by Mick Garris. To emphasize the dramatic differences between the two novels this essay will compare the camera work, the music, and the characters and in addition will explain the motifs used by Stanley Kubrick. Consequently, it is shown that Stanley Kubrick’s version can be considered as the masterpiece of modern horror, whereas Stephen King’s film version of his novel seems to be no more than a mere and ordinary stereotype.

Download and read online Jesus and the Samurai in PDF and EPUB By 250 AD, Christianity had spread throughout India and China. Known as the Shining Religion or the Luminous Teaching, it drew adherents from Buddhism and Hinduism who were seeking a faith that taught the possibility of achieving a society founded on love and compassion for their fellow man. The new doctrine reached the island nation of Japan where it was so well received that Christianity threatened to supplant Buddhism as the dominant religion. By the close of the 16th century Japanese Christians numbered in the millions. Fifty years later Christianity was officially proscribed and Christians faced execution for openly practicing their faith. Jesus and the Samurai tells their fascinating story with facts drawn from ancient and modern sources.

Download and read online The Shining Ones The World s Most Powerful Secret Society Revealed in PDF and EPUB The Shining Ones were members of an advanced culture that was almost lost; but their wisdom and their power survived. They preserved the secrets of their advanced knowledge in mythology and legend; they embedded their secret codes in symbolism in art, architecture, the mystery traditions and literary works - including the Bible. The authors have found traces of the influence of The Shining Ones in all the major religions with roots in the ancient world. Gardiner and Osborn have discovered that their secrets and rituals have been hidden and preserved through the centuries, by the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons to the present day. Furthermore, they believe that the evolution of civilization has been manipulated by a secret and powerful group of initiates descended from The Shining Ones. They can identify their influence behind science, religion, mysticism and philosophy - and, of course, in the arena of powerful politics. This is an extraordinary story of intrigue and power play at a very human and political level. But it is also the revelation that the Shining Ones had knowledge of the deep spiritual truth that lies at the heart of mankind's yearning for an understanding of the meaning of life and to achieve salvation.
