I met John Michell a few times and liked him. A sort of elfin intellectual with a dash of mad professor. A kind and thoughtful man, very determined in pursuit of the answer to great puzzles. Some say that he was one of the real initiators of the whole Ancient Mysteries/New Age movement, and they must be right, surely, on the basis of View Over Atlantis alone (first published 1969). What strikes me now, reading the updated version of VoA, is how original and authentic a voice he had, how deeply s [...]
This is the landmark book on ley lines and their sacred applications. I think that in the very near future this "hidden" technology of earth energy manipulation will once again be known to the Human race. I'm very much into Sacred Geometry right now and this fits right in. The latter chapters are really great. Makes me want to go to Glastonbury and feel the vibe. Also, the very last part of the book sheds a lot of light on the mystery of Coral Castle, a fascinating place on the extreme southern [...]
This book should be considered a classic of the genre and contains some eye-opening information not found elsewhere about the ability of ancient societies to map and measure the world. But there is some important research done since it came out that has enabled other researchers including Graham Hancock and Robert Schoch to go into more depth with the similarities between cultures in widely scattered parts of the world.
This is an exceptionally well-written book, in a vivid, friendly and sincere style. I would have actually given it 4.5 stars overall. The only reason I would not give it a 5/5 is because a few of the claims went beyond my comfort zone and went into the realm of fantastic speculations in my opinion. I am also not that interested in sacred geometry. Otherwise the great majority of the chapters weaved a fantastic tapestry of historical and contemporary sources and materials related to earth mysteri [...]
Some of this is from Thom's book: Megalithic sites, and "The Old Straight Tracks" by Alfred Watkins. An enjoyable read nevertheless, by an author who takes the data to a higher plane: "what does it all mean?" Wish I knew!
Fascinating! I've been fascinated with megalithic structures and the reasons for them - as well as ancient history in general - since I was an archaeology student in the 2970's. Somehow I missed the original View Over Atlantis by John Michell that was published in 1969 so I'm extremely glad that I found the new, extensively revised version that was released in 2013. Even though I've run across much of the information in this book before, it was wonderful and very helpful to have so many sources [...]
A wonderful, magical tour of earth mysteries with some great, scientific explanation as to the existence and reasons for ley lines. I didn't like the chapter on units of measure but there was some great stuff on astronomy, the Pyramids, Druids, international folklore and many, many other topics. Sometimes scientific, other times quite fantastical, I want to believe everything it says.
I got a lot out of reading this book. It deals with the subject of the ancient straight lines between sacred sites all over the planet, and connects them to a prehistoric universal culture that attracted and used the magnetic currents of the earth.
While waiting for Kasia.
NVOA may not be what some hold as truth, but much of it struck a primal cord in me. I often pick up NVOA to remember there are many mysteries in this universe that we just can't explain.
