Mysteries of the Sacred Universe; “Ancient Cosmology” Interview

Broadcast Interview with Radio Host Bell - March 3, 2001 / (311)

Thompson discusses with Bell, the nationally syndicated radio show host, Thompson’s recent publication, Mysteries of the Sacred Universe (2000). He begins with an examination of a series of mathematical analyses comparing the rings of the Bhu-mandala presented in the Bhagavata Purana, with contemporary calculations of planetary orbits. Thompson then presents evidence from the ancient world for sophisticated measurement systems and other technologies, which suggest that a number of traditional societies may well have had access to a complexity of natural knowledge.
