Cosmic Book Reviews
Civilization may be older than we
April 2009 Star Beacon
of the World: The Search for
the World's Oldest Civilization
by Igor Witkowski
Adventures Unlimited Press, Kempton, IL ($18.95)
Review by Jon Schumacher
Amazon knows what kind of books I like based upon my past
purchases. They offered this one, but I had to wait a few weeks
until the publisher actually released it.
It turned out to be rather interesting and I enjoyed
reading it all the way through. I am one of those people who is
convinced that our prehistory may be older and more complex than
we can presently demonstrate.
The combined studies of archaeology and modern geology
provide a fruitful avenue for new revelations about past
civilizations. Many anomalous artifacts and unusual sites provide
us with the tantalizing possibility that we may be much older than
we presently think.
Witkowski pursues the case for a civilization arising in
the Indus Valley and spreading to the west via Asia, the Pacific,
and the Americas. This is not a new idea, but recent discoveries
and re-evaluation of existing sites lend credence to this idea.
New studies of Easter Island and Tihuanaco are featured in this
I liked reading it because it opens some new ground for
future research. We must always keep an open mind when it comes to
the past, especially when we find that human-appearing footprints
have been discovered in sandstone hundreds of millions of years

Sage-ing along with age-ing MacLaine
While Age-ing by Shirley MacLaine,
Atria books, New York, 2008,
978-1-4165-5042-6, 262 pages, $14.00
Review by Ann Ulrich Miller
Reading Shirley MacLaine is like visiting with a dear old
friend. Although she dwells on the fact that she is getting old, the face on the
cover of her latest book, Sage-ing While Age-ing, is anything but that of
an elderly woman.
The book is a mixture of casual reflection and regurgitation of esoteric
research that causes you to sit up and pay attention. Her library of
metaphysical books must be awesome. Her knowledge of what’s contained in those
books would comprise a course in Phenomena 101 at the University of Sirius.
Seriously... this is the kind of book you lend to a friend who is
starting to crack the eggshell, meaning they are beginning to awaken
spiritually. It has a little of everything, including MacLaine’s wise advice
about health and her very own secrets for good living.
She tells about her house in New Mexico “crying” — literally. I’d never
heard of this before. The middle chapters are the ones loaded with her take on
the UFO coverup, disclosure, with heroic individuals such as the late Dr. John
Mack of Harvard and others.
Of course the infamous mention of presidential candidate Dennis
Kucinich’s UFO sighting at her Pacific Northwest house years ago is one of many
fascinating events, along with MacLaine’s views on conspiracies, Atlantis, past
lives, ancient civilizations, and what happened at Roswell in 1947.
I found I wanted to savor this book, so it took three months for me to
get through it. Reading a page or three at a time, then setting it down to let
the information soak in was how I chose to digest it.
I still hold Shirley MacLaine up as one of my metaphysical heroes
because of her courage and her candor. She has something to say about everything
from nutrition to acupuncture, ETs in Peru, famous Hollywood figures who touched
on spiritual subjects, the Bible, the Hopis, death and synchronicity.
In a way, I feel a camaraderie with her because she mentions she is
proud that she was born in a year of saucer sightings (1934) and I can say the
same thing for myself (1952).
