2. The Mimbres—a Pre-Columbian Counter-Culture in the American Southwest?
Enter the bizarre world of the Mimbres people living in southwestern New Mexico during the 11th century AD. See their unique paintings on pottery whose styles range from the realistic to the surreal to the sexually explicit. "In the late 1960s and early 1970s, New Mexico became a magnet for those seeking an alternative lifestyle. All over this semi-desert landscape, exotic varieties of communes sprang up like magic mushrooms after a rainstorm. One typical example of this phenomenon was portrayed in the 1969 classic film Easy Rider. It was not, however, the first time an alternative lifestyle occurred among the pinyon and sandstone mesas. One may have already developed a thousand years earlier."

3. Driekopseiland: a Celestial Rock Art Site in Central South Africa
In September of 2009, I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa in order to assist my friend and colleague Rob Milne with his rock art research. He and I along with his wife Slava visited a site called Driekopseiland, an Afrikaans name meaning “three hills island.” It is located on a working farm along the Riet River near the city of Kimberley in Northern Cape Province. The article presents numerous examples of rock engravings, or petroglyphs, carved hundreds or even thousands of years ago by the San (Bushmen). See the rock art evidence of their contact with extraterrestrials!

4. Seeing Red: Will Betelgeuse Soon Go Supernova?
Scientists have recently observed that the red supergiant star Betelgeuse in the constellation Orion is showing signs of going supernova... and very soon. Hopi legends talk about the arrival of the Red Star Kachina at the end of the current Fourth World in order to purify humankind. The Maya saw Betelgeuse as the Red Dragonfly associated with Kukulkan, and the related Aztec god Quetzalcoatl was sometimes depicted with red skin and a dragonfly headdress. Both gods are said to appear at the conclusion of present cycle. A recent crop formation can be interpreted as the Mayan First Father named Hunahpu emerging from the cracked shell of the Cosmic Turtle, which symbolizes Orion. Will the right shoulder of this stellar giant become a supernova in 2012, blasting us with charged particles and transforming planetary consciousness? The whole world awaits some celestial messenger.

5. Wormwood: Orion's Impending Supernova Betelegeuse
This essay is a continuation in a different vein of my previous essay titled “Seeing Red: Will Betelgeuse Go Supernova in 2012?” A famous passage from the Book of Revelation identifies Wormwood as a large star that will fall upon the earth in the End Times, poisoning the waters. During the course of this essay I explore the possibility that this stellar body may refer to Betelgeuse (Alpha Orionis), the right shoulder of Orion. I cite examples of its importance in primarily the Mayan, Hopi, Hebrew, Egyptian, Hindu, and Tibetan cultures. In the second part of the essay, I discuss the role that the metal copper plays in regard to this constellation.

6. The Maltese Cross: Hopi Indian Version of a Knight Templar Symbol
Discover the esoteric meanings of this universal symbol found in diverse cultures all across the globe. "The Hopi Indians of Arizona also claim the Maltese Cross as part of their cultural heritage. The nögla, meaning literally 'butterfly whorl,' is a women’s hair disk three to four inches in diameter. It was traditionally worn by virgins on both sides of the head above the ears, especially during the Bean Germination Ceremony. Two of these hair disks laid perpendicular to each other resemble the Maltese Cross."

7. The Four Arms of Destiny: Swastikas in the Hopi World & Beyond
"Most of us shudder when we see photos of swastikas on Nazi flags or on the uniforms of the Third Reich. It reminds us of that terrible historical period in the mid-20th century when hatred threatened to rule the world. Most of us would be surprised to learn, however, that this emblem was once an ancient symbol known the world over to represent just the opposite: peace, prosperity, and fortuity. A prime example of the positive meaning comes from the Hopi of northern Arizona. When masked kachinas (spirit messengers) dance in the village plaza during annual ceremonies to pray for rainfall and fertility, they carry a flat gourd rattle in their right hand. These rattles frequently bear the image of the swastika."

9. The Mystery Egg and the Hopi Prophecies
"The Hopi of Arizona, more than most other tribes of North America, have developed as a people according to the dictates and demands of what may be called a legacy of prophecy. The predictions of the life to come do not merely pertain to the Hopi themselves but deal with impending events on a global scale." This essay discusses various Hopi prophecies for the coming years in terms of what they call the "Mystery Egg." This archetypal form is compared with prophetic visions from various cultures, including the Maya, Aztecs, Egyptian, Dogon, Greek, Hindu, and even the disturbing forecasts of the German medieval nun Hildegard von Bingen.

10. Giants, Kachinas, and Cannibals
"Legends of giants are found not only in the Bible but also from all corners of the world, and the American Southwest is no exception. It seems natural that a land of such immensity would spawn creatures of comparable size. Most tribes of this region have some collective memory of giants. Diné [Navajo] legends, for instance, refer to the anáye, which literally means “alien gods” but also implies those who speak a non-Navajo language. These ogres attained great stature, sometimes 'half as tall as the tallest pine-tree.' Although not particularly fast or smart, they were connoisseurs of human flesh. The fiends were even known to consume each other."
