In this latest installment of his remarkable series of books of alternative science and history, Joseph P. Farrell outlines the consistent pattern and strategy of bankers in ancient and modern times, and their desire to suppress the public development of alternative physics and energy technologies, usurp the money creating and issuing power of the state, and substitute a f ...more

I have read many books about the banking industry and finance and how shadowy it all is. One needs to read different people's take on how this Esoteric world runs parallel with the illusion of the Exoteric world. It really does not matter whether one believes anything they read it is all about perception. Just watching the MSM, like in the book 1984, is a linear way to live ones life. All swimming in the high seas of life in one direction and not seeing anything else. That is a civilised society ...more

More bull$#!+ than a week long rodeo. I was interested in this book for a discussion about the federal reserve, the monetary system and how the money we use on a daily basis is controlled and who controls it. Instead I got a book so full of conspiracy theories and absurd assumptions that I can't believe it's shelved in the non-fiction section. Farrell states that you must believe in the assumptions made in his earlier books to understand much of this one (I have not read his other books). Those ...more

While the specific details often border into the esoteric realm, Farrell's broader conclusions are sound. Further, Farrell has done the painstaking work of detailing the connections between money, religion, and power. Indeed, the old adage "Follow the Money" rings true here. Farrell's thesis on its simplest level is that there has been a secret international money cabal who has always been close to power. Farrell points out that ancient societies almost always saw a nexus involving the Temple, t ...more

Farrell's ability weave an insightful narrative from multiple disciplines is unparalleled. A timely and engaging read for the delving wanderer.

When some of the most frequently repeated phrases in a book are "we will assume," "imagine, if you will," and "imagine;" when "as I stated in my book ..." is used as a reference and source of facts or explanation of information, an author cannot possibly expect to be considered reputable nor taken seriously. Joseph P. Farrell is being written off my list of writers: not, perhaps, as the King of Conspiracy Theory Fiction, but certainly as one of its nobility.

The global economic crisis that started in 2008 has summoned a deeper skepticism of the economic mainstream with its corresponding prognostications for endless growth and prosperity. Individuals are starting to question the need to play on the giant wheels of churning money that represented the retirement funds and investments of the past. While I’ve been reading extensively about alternative economies and monetary systems, nothing has provided a picture of finance as intriguing or as challengin ...more

I'm now revealing my inner nerd openly: this is a conspiracy book involving extraterrestrial, scalar technology, Nazis, the private banking system, and even astrology, and therefore at the top of my guilty pleasure reading. On the surface it sounds wild, but I read these books with the same avid angst that other people read horror fiction. The whole Farrell series is enough to make you see the world we know in a whole new light, and the picture he paints is far scarier than any apocalyptic fanta ...more

This is a great story and ties many things together nicely...namely the concept of closed system physics with closed system economics, verses open system economics and physics. I recommend Farrell for anyone engaging themselves in studies relating to energy dynamics in general.

Could humanity be magnitudes older than common science suggests? Was there a peak moment for the human race, way back in ancient history, when humanity "had it all" and then lost it?

I searched for a book on the origins of the banking system and found a book that goes way deeper than what I could imagine. The author has an exceptionally open mind and suggests that the modern banking, that works in a sense like alchemy - by creating money out of nothing - is connected to the so called science of

Most extremely technical left brained people I know tend to do exactly what this book does which is get lost in the technical details of a subject. There's no question that Farrell is an extremely knowledgable and intelligent man, but this book was in desperate need of some serious editing. The subject matter and concepts are simply fascinating; however, it didn't hold my attention as I feel like I was reading a tedious technical reference manual. The technical details are superfluous as the maj ...more

This book is as dumb and inelegant as it gets. I'm surely convinced of the cyclic theorie, and I even tend to believe in the implications on DNA, behaviour and higher physics. But the whole conspiracy theory by Farrell is openly racist and antisemitic and, not to mention, built out of thin air.
Just as an example: Farrell postulates the similiarities between Surnames like Li as irrefutable proof of a shared mindset and power, he also denies major mechanics of modern and ancient propaganda. Like:

Covers what it wants to very well indeed, though folks who are into monetary conspiracy may be distressed when the book takes off for astrology/stargazing for its second half. Interesting nonetheless, though dry.

I am over with conspiracy theory. I thought this is a book talking about the finance, but then it's full of astrology, Bilderberg Club, even applied cosmology to explain human financial behavior?? It doesn't need real physicists or astrophysicists to see what's going wrong in this book. Farrell tried to link the events to a series of cause-effect with his imagination. At beginning I read it as sci-fi, then I just could not even call it sci-fi.

The sun is just one of a very small stars in the whol

The concepts are fascinating and believable, I would just like a little more evidence.....I will keep this book in mind while I look for others to substantiate it. Worth the read, but I often found myself rereading sections for clarity
