be absolutely true The ideas about development of the human concousness mindblowing If they are at lest partially true, then the human history has been an even wilder ride than we could have guessed Of course, one cannot believe every little thing outright Still, rejecting all ideas outright is also not the best way to approach to such readings.Whatever the truth on all the topics is, this is a very enlightening read that can at least make people wonder if this world might be a tadconvoluted place than is readily imaginable It s a trip through a very strange history, a history you ve probably never heard Before you condemn the book, I urge you to take the author s advice in the beginning of the book read this with a totally open mind and assume for the sake of debate that you ve only heard one side of history If you do that, the book will open your mind even.Booth isn t necessarily telling you that this book is really how history happened in a literal sense He s just giving you another side the side that It s a trip through a very strange history, a history you ve probably never heard Before you condemn the book, I urge you to take the author s advice in the beginning of

telling you that this book is really how history happened in a literal sense He s just giving you another side the side that some secret societies teach And it will come off as weird, there s no getting around that But if you re an intellectual, you ll at least be able to appreciate how this shaped ideas in any given period of time If you re the right kind of person, it might change your perceptions of things and cause you to question a lot of preconceived notions I read one person s review where he claimed that it altered his consciousness It can certainly do that too.If nothing else, it s an interesting look at how earlier cultures perceived the world as opposed to our modern paradigm It helps you get inside the heads of earlier generations, and that alone to me is worth the time it takes to read this book I liked it tremendously for that reason I tried to like this book, I really did Maybe it gets better later, but I can only take so much I tried to finish it, but the first 100 pages simply follow the same formula over over 1 Describe part of human evolution as seen by secret societies.2 Fail to explain or back up exactly what was just described.3 Explain how mind blowing what was just described is.4 Point out that ancient man perceived the world differently from us and therefore was totally cool with what was just described.5 I tried to like this book, I

and therefore was totally cool with what was just described.5 Scoff at modern science for making our lives too rigid to allow us to believe what was just described.6 Rinse7 RepeatPerhaps I would have made it through this had the writing been slightly better than a Vampire Hunter D novel, but sadly, no At least Vampire Hunter D books have cool things like cyborg horses and giant spiders attacking flying cities all this book is a somewhat interesting creation story and an author constantly telling me how TRULY AMAZING AND INCREDIBLE it all is Guess I ll try reading the next secret society history book that comes out, hopefully by someone who hasn t guzzled the Kool Aid Based on the summary of this book I thought I was going to learn about the beliefs of secret societies Perhaps some detail about why many of them seem to have similarities and what the reasons are for that Not the case.First the author spends over 50 pages preparing you for the rest of the book Explaining how the book isn t for everyone and that only open minded people will want to read it It s a silly trick to try to pull if you don t like my book it s because you can t handle my book On Based on the summary

try to pull if you don t like my book it s because you can t handle my book One of my favorite quotes along these lines is Conventionally minded Christians may wish to stop reading now I got 100 pages in and just couldn t go any further The book mentions nothing about specific societies, or even specific beliefs Instead it tells an alternate history that is I think supposed to be a representation of what all of these secret societies believe Just a big amalgam of all of them with no insight into which ones believe which parts or why He also jumps around a lot and never really covers anything in detail Just when you think he s going to say something, he either skips to something else or reiterates how modern scientists thinkers Christians would find these ideas too radical or challenging This is a fascinating read, but it s definitely not for everyone If you re scientifically minded and need proof for his suppositions, you won t make it out of chapter one However, if you approach it with an open mind and look at this book as a collection of ideas of the author s, but also from many mystics and spiritualists through the ages then it s extremely thought provoking.Some of it s a bit strange the vegetable part of man is hard to wrap your head around , but all in all I didn t This is a fascinating read, but it s definitely not for everyone If you re scientifically minded and need

anything that outraged me Instead, it answered some questions that have bugged me for years, such as how the Greeks were able to construct and believe in such a complicated pantheon of gods and demigods I especially liked how he suggests we have been experiencing a de evolution in terms of our spiritual knowledge and understanding since the time of the ancient Egyptians, and how a lot of that can be attributed to the Catholic church s insistence on eradicating heresy and witchcraft As someone who has spent a great deal of time reading about the early church, I fully believe and accept that the church fathers and hierarchy knew a lotabout esoteric practices than they wanted people to know And really, although Booth Black s it s the same person theories are a bit unusual at first glance, they aren t really Think about it Catholics believe in the intercessory power of saints in transubstantiation in an afterlife in demons and the devil If you take those beliefs out of Christian doctrine and examine them objectively, and ask where they came from, and why other cultures share many of the same traditions and stories, then you basically are on the same path this author followed all the way back to the beginning of time and then back to the present.All in all, this is a fantastic book that may answer some questions but will definitely leave you asking even I learned from this book just how gullible supposedly educated people can be This is utter and useless dross. Awful Terrible Utter tripe I m not particularly religious and I have an open mind when it comes to alternative views of history as filtered through the beliefs and spirituality of old, butoh my God, this garbage had me shouting at the pages before I finally threw up my hands and threw the book in my Get Rid of It box So much ranting I could do but, considering I run the risk of writing the longest, most vitriolic rant in my reviewing life, I ll simply leave my status updates here Concise Awful Terrible Utter tripe I m not particularly religious and I have an open mind when it comes to

to the point, I think, at least farthan The Secret History of the World ever managed to be1 I do NOT appreciate being flat out told what I currently think and what I will think later 2 Booth didn t exist in ancient times, therefore his matter of fact statements regarding what the ancients specifically thought are not only presumptive, they re utter bullshit 3 Holy Christ, man, lay off the italics As someone who s not an idiot, I can add my own emphasis, thanks very much Conventionally minded Christians may wish to stop reading now Are you freakin kidding me A sentence like that is born out of either a lack of knowledge regarding the audience for the book or sheer, unmitigated arrogance As we have seen No, actually, we have not seen One idea stated as fact in a single sentence but neither supported by cited sources nor given even a marginal explanation of what the hell is being talked about does not a fact or connection make No solid foundations for these early ideas Myths from different cultures and time periods being broken down for scrap that the author can pick and choose and mash together in ways that don t even support his theories Why am I even still reading this As we will see Cue silly me thinking the author will go on later to discuss this promised topic in depth So as we have seen Me throwing the book while screaming incoherently that he never even mentioned that part, let alone shown anything about it I realize this book is an exercise in esoteric philosophy and attempting to present an alternate spiritual history, but this is turning out to be a mishmash of massive holes, inconsistency, erroneous timelines, and bastardized folklore According to secret societies , Initiates of secret societies believe , Secret societies know Really What secret societies How do YOU know this, Booth If these are secrets, shouldn t they be, well, secret Citing secret societies is not actually citing sources at all, and saying that they re secret but not so secret you don t know is no justification A bright point Sometimes people will try to ban beliefs not because they believe them to be false but because they believe them to be true This is true, being based in historical reality and such Booth says this a couple times, and at least on this we agree Poorly written, convoluted theory , regular insults thrown at both science and modern religious faith, arrogant overtones, a lot look at THIS piece of the folk myths and not at THOSE pieces that don t fit my theory in any way sleight off handno, forget it I m done I can t I just can t Where to even begin with this book The Secret History of the World As Laid Down by the Secret Societies, by author Mark Booth, is every bit as ludicrous as the title sounds That being said, there are moments of genuinely brilliant writing and profoundly interesting ideas Booth sabotages himself with far too many obscure references and endless name dropping And when I say endless name dropping, I cannot over exaggerate the sheer quantity Booth rambles on with.Criticisms aside, I enjoyed much Where to even begin with this book The Secret History of the World As Laid Down by the Secret Societies, by

many obscure references and endless name dropping And when I say endless name dropping, I cannot over exaggerate the sheer quantity Booth rambles on with.Criticisms aside, I enjoyed much of this book Booth takes elements from most every major religion s theosophy and combines it with many known cultural mythologies into a type of unsubstantiated world history He asserts that the universe s grand design is based on mind before matter laws of a spiritual dimension and that humanity has devolved into a materialistic, dumbed down race He then, loosely, outlines secret societies such as the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Hermeticists etc roles in preserving the true mind before matter nature of the universe so humanity may once again evolve to its former glory.If you love religious studies, history, mythology, and a little absurdity, I d highly recommend this book But if you re just looking for conspiracy theories, this isn t for you (Free Pdf) á The Secret History of the World Ù Here for the first time is a complete history of the world, from the beginning of time to the present day, based on the beliefs and writings of the secret societies From the esoteric account of the evolution of the species to the occult roots of science, from the secrets of the Flood to the esoteric motives behind American foreign policy, here is a narrative history that shows the basic facts of human existence on this planet can be viewed from a very different angle Everything in this history is upside down, inside out and the other way aroundAt the heart of The Secret History of the World is the belief that we can reach an altered state of consciousness in which we can see things about the way the world works that are hidden from us in our everyday, commonsensical consciousness This history shows that by using secret techniques, people such as Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton and George Washington have worked themselves into this altered state and been able to access supernatural levels of intelligence There have been many books on the subject, but, extraordinarily, no one has really listened to what the secret societies themselves say The author has been helped in his researches by his friendship with a man who is an initiate of than one secret society, and in one case an initiate of the highest level The Secret History of the World is unique and therefore hard to review I think, in a hundred, maybe two hundred years from now people will point at this book and say That was the time when humanity started to wake up and realized they could actually use the powerful knowledge they had been given throughout their esoteric past We don t always see it now, as we still live in the forest and then its hard to see the all the trees but these are changing times in which humanity is making a shif The Secret History of the World is unique and therefore hard to review I think, in a hundred, maybe two hundred years from now people will point at this book and say That was the time when humanity started to wake up and realized they could actually use the powerful knowledge they had been given throughout their esoteric past We don t always see it now, as we still live in the forest and then its hard to see the all the trees but these are changing times in which humanity is making a shift from human drones to individuals discovering ways to manifest in a positive way This treasure chest is what Jonathan Black describes I m tempted to say everything is in it , but who am I to say I know it all From what I ve read over the past 40 years however and I ve been an ardent explorer ever since my early teens, I have not come across a book that has gathered so much esoteric knowledge ranging from western to tribal to eastern revelations.Its also a book you can pick and just read a few pages to then have days of pondering material I simply love it and if a meteorite was heading for earth and I had 3days to choose what I wanted to do with my life I d probably brew a pot of tea and read this book Ingrid
