  1. Between the Lines: The Mystery of the Giant Ground Drawings of Ancient Nasca, Peru - Anthony F. Aveni

    Between the Lines: The Mystery of the Giant Ground Drawings of Ancient Nasca, Peru - Anthony F. Aveni

    The Nasca Lines are one of the world's great enigmas. Who etched the more than 1,000 enormous animal, human, and geometric figures that cover 400 square miles of barren pampa in southern Peru? How did the makers create lifelike images of monkeys, birds, and spiders without an aerial or mountain vantage point from which to view these giant figures that stretch across thousands of square yards? Most puzzling of all, why did the ancient Nasca people lay out these astonishing lines and images in the desert? These are the questions that pioneering archaeoastronomer Anthony Aveni seeks to answer in this book.

    Writing for a wide public audience, Aveni begins by establishing the Nasca Lines as a true wonder of the ancient world. He describes how viewers across the centuries have tried to interpret the lines and debunks some of the wilder theories. Then he vividly recounts his own years of exploration at Nasca in collaboration with archaeologists, anthropologists, astronomers, and engineers and the discoveries that have answered many of the riddles about who made the Nasca Lines, when, and for what purposes. He also demonstrates how the lines manifest a universal human desire to create monumental earthworks that extends around the globe and to the present day.

    We may never fully know why the Nasca Lines were inscribed in the Peruvian pampa, but this book offers a fascinating overview of what the leading expert and his colleagues currently understand. It's required reading for everyone intrigued by ancient mysteries.

  4. Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 & A New World Age

    Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 & A New World Age - Gregg Braden

    This fascinating book merges the modern discovery of nature's fractal patterns with the ancient view of a cyclic universe. Applying "fractal time" to everything from history to human relationships, Braden suggests that if we study the past, we'll know what to expect when the same conditions return. His "Time Code Calculator" allows us to do just that. Each cycle of history, he notes, carries a choice point that allows us to select a new outcome - and 2012 is such a window of opportunity. 256 pp. Learn More

    Power Up Your Brain: The Neuroscience of Enlightenment - David Perlmutter

    The quest for enlightenment has occupied mankind for millennia. And from the depictions we’ve seen—monks sitting on meditation cushions, nuns kneeling in prayer, shamans communing with the universe—it seems that this elusive state is reserved for a chosen few. But now, neuroscientist David Perlmutter and medical anthropologist and shaman Alberto Villoldo have come together to explore the commonalities between their specialties with the aim of making enlightenment possible for anyone.

  10. Signs_of_the_Inka_Khipu:_Binary_Coding_in_the_Andean_Knotted-String_Records_-_Gary_Urton

    Signs of the Inka Khipu: Binary Coding in the Andean Knotted-String Records - Gary Urton

    "Urton's work is scholarly and painstakingly thorough and is a valuable contribution to our understanding of Inca inscription that makes good use of ethnographic and ethnohistorical work on the Andean region." -- The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "This is by far the most important monograph on Andean systems of information registry since the Ashers' volumes in the late 1970s. Urton provides a platform for a whole new generation of studies." -- Frank Salomon, Professor of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

    In an age when computers process immense amounts of information by the manipulation of sequences of 1s and 0s, it remains a frustrating mystery how prehistoric Inka recordkeepers encoded a tremendous variety and quantity of data using only knotted and dyed strings. Yet the comparison between computers and khipu may hold an important clue to deciphering the Inka records. In this book, Gary Urton sets forth a pathbreaking theory that the manipulation of fibers in the construction of khipu created physical features that constitute binary-coded sequences which store units of information in a system of binary recordkeeping that was used throughout the Inka empire.

    Urton begins his theory with the making of khipu, showing how at each step of the process binary, either/or choices were made. He then investigates the symbolic components of the binary coding system, the amount of information that could have been encoded, procedures that may have been used for reading the khipu, the nature of the khipu signs, and, finally, the nature of the khipu recording system itself-- emphasizing relations of markedness and semantic coupling. This researchconstitutes a major step forward in building a unified theory of the khipu system of information storage and communication based on the sum total of construction features making up these extraordinary objects.
