Many readers will be familiar with the Magical Egypt series, a high-production-quality DVD set from the early 2000s that explored the esoteric symbolism, philosophy and history of ancient Egypt, via ‘alternative Egyptologist’ John Anthony West. For those that enjoyed the series – and those that just love discussion of ancient Egypt in general – you’ll be pleased to learn that a second instalment of the series is now being planned. In 2014 though, the producers are seeking to gauge interest and raise funds via a Kickstarter campaign:
Magical Egypt series 2 pushes the entire investigation to the next phase. If, as modern science seems to be showing, there actually was a scientific culture that in many respects, was MORE advanced than we are today, or if it was advanced along technological paths different than western science has taken, can we find “recoverable technology” in the considerable relics and ruins left behind by the ancient world?
Magical Egypt is excited to include the unique voices of some of the worlds leading thinkers in “the new counterculture”, such as Graham Hancock, Neil Kramer, Lon Milo DuQuette, Robert Bauval, Laird Scranton, Max Igan and the host of the original series John Anthony West.
The campaign has already passed its initial $5000 funding goal, with more than 3 weeks still left to go – but the total they are looking to raise to fund the series is in the region of $50,000 – so take a look at the pledge rewards on offer, and chip in if there’s anything that grabs you.
