CPAK 2005 -- 2nd Annual Conference

September 20, 2005

LOS ANGELES, CA (September 20, 2005) -- A gathering of some of the most forward thinkers in archaeo-astronomy and alternative history will take place this November 11-12 in Sedona, Arizona, at the 2005 Conference on Precession and Ancient Knowledge (CPAK).

The mission of CPAK 2005 is to develop a true dialog among experts in a wide range of fields to illuminate the ties between ancient cultures, mythology, and our ancestral knowledge of the stars. The conference will explore new evidence for a cyclical theory of civilization (tied to the Precession of the Equinox) and its possible causes, and highlight archaeological, mythological and astronomical support for the theory.

Prominent scientists, researchers and experts will look at novel theories to explain the rise and fall of civilizations over a vast cycle of time, including the motion of heavenly bodies; change in the cosmic environment, and possible geological and impact events.

For the first time in the conference's history, CPAK 2005 will include a day of public programs to share these collaborations with the general public and astronomy and ancient history students, teachers, scientists and science writers. Private round table discussions and presentations among the experts will continue to be the hallmark of the conference.

Much attention will be given to the Precession of the Equinox, its ancient meaning and new updates to the modern theory and cause of the Earth's constant reorientation to space.


Why do so many ancient civilizations display evidence of higher culture and what are the latest findings?

The worldwide myth and folklore of Plato's Great Year and the archaeological evidence to support it.

The binary star theory of precession and the physics of cyclical stellar influences upon the magnetosphere, ionosphere and consciousness.

The internationally renowned slate of CPAK 2005 Speakers will include:

GRAHAM HANCOCK, best-selling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, Heaven's Mirror and Underworld: The Mysterious Origins of Civilization and many other books and films on ancient wisdom.

JOHN MAJOR JENKINS, Mayan Scholar, lecturer and author of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 and Galactic Alignment.

WALTER CRUTTENDEN, Director of the Binary Research Institute and author of Lost Star of Myth and Time, and writer/producer of the PBS documentary, The Great Year.

GEOFF PATINO, Director of Features Programming for the Newport Beach Film Festival and Co-writer/producer of the PBS documentary The Great Year.

ROBERT SCHOCH, Professor of Geology, Boston University, known for redating the Sphinx and author of Pyramid Quest and Voices of the Rocks.

JOHN DERING, Physicist with Scientific Applications and Research Associates, author of Energy and the Stars: Stellar Effects on Consciousness.

UWE HOMANN, Director, Sirius Research Group, amateur astronomer known for experiments measuring the Earth's transit relative to nearby by stars.

MARTIN GRAY, Sacred sites investigator, photographer and author of Places of Peace and Power. Martin has visited more ancient sacred sites than any other explorer.

CPAK 2005 will be held at the Hilton Sedona Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona.
