Preface to the current edition
It had been a long day and the man wanted to relax. He took a book from his library and opened it at one of his favourite photographs so as to immerse himself in the landscape of a place far, far away from the heat of the city.
He looked in wonder at the beauty of the largest earthworks in Europe – the great green rampart and ditch encircling the inner grassy platform upon which tall standing stones marked the remains of ancient circles. He saw a tetrahedral-shaped mound on the eastern outer rampart – the rim of the ditch.
Suddenly, the picture faded, green gave way to reddish-brown, and a crater was ‘superimposed’ over the exact dimensions of the earthworks and virtually instantaneously the man ‘knew’ that this crater was on Mars, in the region of Cydonia. His vision cleared and once again the image before his eyes was an aerial photograph of Avebury Circle in Wiltshire, England.
The man was David Percy and the year was 1991.
Having always used his professional skills as a filmmaker, graphic designer and photographer to assist his life-long research into lost and hidden knowledge, David Percy set about establishing a methodology to test the veracity of his ‘vision experience’. Although primarily concerned with examining the possibility of an Earth/Mars connection encoded at Avebury, his research facilitated production of material for The Terrestrial Connection, a lecture by the Mars Mission presented at the headquarters of the United Nations in 1992.
Preparation for this event also brought about a meeting with David Myers – it was to be the beginning of an extraordinary team effort that would result in Two-Thirds: A History of our Galaxy. Together they would push the research even further and discover not only the relationship between the Avebury earthworks and the Cydonia crater, but also the match between the entire Avebury complex and the Cydonia region on Mars.
Following their surveys of the region, Percy was beset with further questions: Why should these two locations on two different planets correspond? What was the reason for these analogues? And why do other sites and artefacts on Earth connect with Avebury/Cydonia?
Thanks to this constructive assistance from 'Tom', Myers and Percy began to liaise extensively, working step by step through the information encoded within the mathematics, the geography and the topography of each artefact or location (including associated crop glyphs) they were studying. Along the way, they discussed their hypotheses with the appropriate professionals such as astronomers, mathematicians and physicists.
From this research process evolved the understanding that they were discovering fundamental elements of technologies that mankind does not yet possess. They also realised that the foundations of their research would be beyond the bounds of credibility for most people – as it nearly had been for themselves.
Since the publication of the first edition of Two-Thirds in 1993, it is now possible to verify that this book actually contains sense, not nonsense – indeed much that is not known to science today.
Here is a precise example of the truth of this claim.
In late 1993 David Percy asked the evolutionary writer Stan Gooch what he thought the head of the Egyptian Sphinx might represent. Stan had never investigated the matter before. After due consideration, he now stated that in his opinion the head was a combination of the skulls of the two early varieties of man, Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon; and that therefore the Sphinx must be a monument to the hybridisation of the two varieties, which produced ourselves.
At this point David Percy showed Stan Gooch the following passage from Two-Thirds (pp. 302-3), which he had not before seen:
". . . Modify the face of the statue [the Sphinx] to resemble both the face of the transitional self-aware being resulting from the administration of the first part of the genetic agent [Neanderthal] and the face of the being resulting from the administration of the second part of the genetic agent [Cro-Magnon] . . ."
Sphinx profile and combined skulls
So in 1993 both Myers/Percy and Gooch independently stated that the head of the Sphinx is a combination of the heads of the first and second stages of a genetic project, resulting in Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon. Their agreement was already remarkable (see illustration 1).
What is however crucial, and quite apart from the Sphinx, is that Two-Thirds and Gooch state unequivocally that we, modern man, are the result of two key stages – a cross between Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon – from which arises our phenomenal hybrid vigour. The scientific establishment for its part has always flatly maintained that Neanderthal man played no part whatsoever in our ancestry.
But in April 1999, following new fossil finds in Portugal, the scientific establishment executed a complete U-turn – and announced that Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon did after all interbreed. Two-Thirds and Stan Gooch had been absolutely right.
As another example, Two-Thirds tells us that there are three different speeds of light throughout the universe. Now in 1999 scientists are suggesting that light might not be a constant after all – the first step towards verification. Revision of scientific consensus as to how light really behaves would have a profound effect on everything to do with our understanding of the size and age of the universe, it would alter our viewpoint on virtually everything.
These two examples very much suggest that other seemingly fantastic technological information within the pages of this book should be taken seriously too. Furthermore, Two-Thirds proposes the use of a gravity propulsion system that will enable human beings to travel safely and rapidly through deep space – a spacecraft that will open the door to long distance space travel.
Traditional ways of doing things are hard to overcome, but without innovation and change to established patterns of behaviour mankind cannot send men safely to Mars and beyond. No matter what NASA’s spin doctors may say, sooner or later spacecraft will need total conceptual renewal – such as the development and adoption of spinning disk technology – as described in this book.
The extraordinary text is filled with mathematical proofs demonstrating that the locations and placements on Earth of many of our inherited monuments and structures, such as the Great Pyramid, Teotihuacán, Stonehenge and Avebury, were intentional. We are presented with many compelling and logical reasons as to why this construction work was undertaken – and by whom. In counterpart to this we have the story of the occupation of our galaxy – who we really are, where our forbears came from and why we are here on this planet.
From start to finish, the backplot and text of Two-Thirds took just over twelve months to complete – clearly, it is far too complex to have been simply ‘dreamt-up’ by two individuals either side of the Atlantic in such a short time. Whether you choose to consider this text as sourced from inspiration, by infusion, or ‘the Internet without wires’ (to quote Omon Ra author Victor Pelevin) the truth is that when their research was complete, and David Myers sat at his early Apple computer, he did not expect to be recording the history of our galaxy.
As few of us today are familiar with mythos this style can at first be tedious but the use of this device enforces reality. It also enables the reader to exercise the mind’s eye (or third eye, if you will). The addition or alteration of one word not only indicates an outcome, it can also switch the reader to another level.
The outward patterning created by this device sets up internal, imperceptible wavelengths and rhythms within the text imparting information to the brain, so as editor, wherever I have abbreviated excessively long repetitions in the original manuscript, I have maintained these internal rhythms.
Apart from the text, some months before they were finished David Percy was ‘given’ the date of publication – August 21st 1993. The authors would later discover that this was the very date that NASA’s Mars Observer probe arrived in Martian orbit and promptly stopped communicating.
In many ways this work is a re-telling of the ‘hero’s’ journey of traditional myth, but there is another innovative storytelling device in Two-Thirds. The ‘hero’ is depicted as a fractal. At any one time ‘he’ can be singular, a group or an entire civilisation.
The heroic qualities of bravery, fidelity, beauty and honour are sometimes expressed within one person, sometimes within the group and then sometimes expressed separately among four people or a group. Each reader’s journey through this book will be a fractal of the ‘hero’s’ journey that we as a civilisation have chosen to make by living on this planet, in this solar system, in this galactic experience – NOW.
By opening our minds to the seemingly fantastic information presented in Two-Thirds: A History of our Galaxy we can join Myers and Percy on THE journey of discovery about ourselves and our place in the universe.
