TIME STANDS STILL
  (Enlarge)  
TIME STANDS STILL
Keith Critchlow, an internationally known scholar, has studied a wide range of Neolithic artifacts. In Time Stands Still, he adopts a technique of cross-cultural comparison to uncover some previously unknown characteristics of the Neolithic people. He takes ancient temple-building manuals from Indian Vedic sources, for example, and applies them to British sites—with fascinating results. He examines Chinese pictographs for evidence of sighting instruments and scientific tools. Perhaps most significantly, he offers evidence that stone-carved spheres with regular mathematical symmetries, found in Scotland, pre-date Plato's writings on geometric figures by more than a thousand years. The remarkable findings of this groundbreaking book are just as important today as when the book was first published in 1979. This book is one of the classics of new antiquarian literature, and the reissue, with an update, is welcome. Chapters include: The Enigma of the Megaliths; The Ground Rules; Significant Number; Squaring the Circle; Qualitative Number: Number as Rhythm, Cycles and Sequence; Platonic Spheres—A Millennium Before Plato; The Planets as Time Keepers: Patterns in Time and Space; Conclusions; more. Color and b/w photos. Imported from Britain.'As an archaeological book, it tries to sympathetically comprehend the megalithic mind and the feats of cosmic architectural orientation achieved in an age without written words or numbers. It aims explicitly to understand the builders of the stone circles on their own terms and begins to explore what kind of knowledge they were using … It is however more than a book about stones: it strives to rediscover the wisdom stream that underlay the mathematical, geometric, and cosmic architecture embodied in the stone circles and sculpted into stone figures. It is a diverse and interdisciplinary study using anthropology, psychology, mythology, architecture, linguistics, philosophy and numerology.'--Alexander Murrell, New View
