About Robert Dakota
I am a Filmmaker / Visual Artist / Mosaicist that has been fascinated and enthralled with Planetary Culture. I am the Visionary & Founder of World ViewZ Global Culture Exchange. My first journey out of the country was to Honduras when I was 23. That was a profound experience. When I returned, I knew that my life would be all about travel, adventure, & culture. After traveling to 24 countries I discovered what every culture has in common wherever you go, is the Love for Art, Music, Dance, & Play. This is where the theme for World ViewZ comes from. If we could focus more on the things that bring us joy and less on the things that create other than joy, I believe we will always find our truth there. I am on an Artistic path integrating media with ceremony in order to recreate our world into the image that we know is possible but sometimes find illusive. Nature is my teacher, when I am out in nature I feel that all my worries melt into insignificance. Mother Earth provides so much abundance that we only need to tune in and listen to her call.
About Graham Hancock's Book
Was an advanced civilization lost to history in the global cataclysm that ended the last Ice Age? Graham Hancock, the internationally bestselling author, has made it his life's work to find out--and in America Before, he draws on the latest archaeological and DNA evidence to bring his quest to a stunning conclusion.
We’ve been taught that North and South America were empty of humans until around 13,000 years ago – amongst the last great landmasses on earth to have been settled by our ancestors. But new discoveries have radically reshaped this long-established picture and we know now that the Americas were first peopled more than 130,000 years ago – many tens of thousands of years before human settlements became established elsewhere.
Hancock's research takes us on a series of journeys and encounters with the scientists responsible for the recent extraordinary breakthroughs. In the process, from the Mississippi Valley to the Amazon rainforest, he reveals that ancient "New World" cultures share a legacy of advanced scientific knowledge and sophisticated spiritual beliefs with supposedly unconnected "Old World" cultures. Have archaeologists focused for too long only on the "Old World" in their search for the origins of civilization while failing to consider the revolutionary possibility that those origins might in fact be found in the "New World"?
America Before: The Key to Earth's Lost Civilization is the culmination of everything that millions of readers have loved in Hancock's body of work over the past decades, namely a mind-dilating exploration of the mysteries of the past, amazing archaeological discoveries and profound implications for how we lead our lives today.
