Drink some coffee for this one, folks. It's about cycles of time, celestial mechanics, and ancient knowledge -- a discussion with author, producer and alternative historian, Walter Cruttenden, another techie gone esoteric and with the best of intentions.
Cruttenden says humankind is moving out of a brutally dark period and into the light, a golden age, just like those described so often in myth and legend. But Cruttenden's take on things melds folklore with astronomy and hard science with the Vedas. He isn't adverse to quoting the Bible. "The further back you go, the closer you get to the higher ages."
Cruttenden says high-functioning consciousness is cyclical, that both dark and golden ages wax and wane with proximity to the Sun, just as do the seasons, as the solar system moves through the heavens. But then he adds that we may well live in a binary system. There may be two suns affecting things.
Paraphrasing some of the discussion, Cruttenden tells us that:
Our solar system may be moving at a high rate of speed, circling some object.
"Our sun may have a partner -- a binary star. Astronomers don't agree about this, but some are looking for one. They think it might explain some things, like dinosaur extinction. Scientist Mike Brown at Cal Tech -- the guy who killed Pluto, found Sedna, which has an unusual 12,000 year, elongated orbit. He thinks there's something out there -- a 10th planet or dark star, a big mass. We're not far along there, but there's evidence that something must be there.
Prior to 1998 it was thought that no star except for the Sun had any effect on Earth. But magnetosphere disruptions experienced on the night side of the planet that year meant that it was not an X-class solar flare, and it was concluded that a soft gamma repeater over 20,000 light years away was having the same affect on our planet as a solar flare would. So now it's known that yes, other stars do affect planet Earth. Our ionosphere and magnetosphere can be highly affected by them.
We are coming out of a dark age, and the truths coming from the Vedas are starting to ring true. There may be a lot more to life than we think. After all, while most of us think we are physical beings walking on a physical earth and not much else, with conscious evolution we begin to understand that everything is made of energy and that there are many subtle influences. There will be deeper truths revealed as we reach higher stages."
Cruttenden says myths depicting repeating cycles of golden and dark ages may have a basis in fact, as forces may be affecting Earth as our solar system moves through a 24,000-year dual star orbit. He says the way the stars move across the sky -- the precession of the equinox -- is the clue to, the reason for these alternating cycles, exactly as folklore describes.
"Think of the solar system as a space ship. We are approaching a sweet spot. It's profound. The Great Year cycle is 24,000 years long-- 12,000 moving toward the higher age, and 12,000 moving away.
I'm hopeful about mankind. Higher consciousness is beginning to peak through. At first, of course, you just see the shadows."

Walter Cruttenden is an amateur theoretical archaeo-astronomer and author of the binary theory of precession. As Executive Director of the Binary Research Institute he researches the celestial mechanics of the precession of the equinox, as well as myth and folklore related to this phenomenon. He is the writer-producer of The Great Year, a PBS broadcast documentary film (narrated by James Earl Jones) that explores evidence of astronomical cycles of time known to cultures throughout the ancient world. Most recently Cruttenden wrote Lost Star of Myth and Time, a book that provides an alternative view of history based on the solar system's motion through space. It is his belief that the myth and folklore depicting a repeating cycle of Golden Ages and Dark Ages may have a basis in fact, due to the alternating stellar forces that affect Earth as our solar system moves in a 24,000-year binary (dual star) orbit.
