"Planet X" portrays the mythological gumbo of global mythology that predates written history. The powerful mysteries mythology presents has fascinated me since I was a child, such as the ancient Greek lore that describes earth as having been a moon of Saturn, child of Kronos (Saturn) who was a god and father to Zeus (Jupiter) and fought a great battle for control of the planets until Helios (The Sun) entered the scene dominating and rearranging our solar system’s alignment. The ancient Vedas described a similar cosmic war between worlds, everything from vimanas (flying machines) to other accurate astronomical descriptions of the surface of the Moon and Mars, the spherical shape of our own planet in a universe filled with other planets, long before the discoveries of Copernicus.
To have the intelligence to articulate these facts at such a pre-historic age is mind blowing. Who were the ancients and what were they doing here? Were they more advanced than we in our current state of intellect? And how did they produce a culture tens of thousands of years ago that spanned the entire planet, building near identical, impossible architectural mega structures across every continent to synergize and unite what was potentially a global society? What caused the disappearance of these people and their neolithic sites, buried under piles of mud, rubble, deserts of sands and sediment, nearly erasing their existence?
When we study the petroglyphs, hieroglyphs, ancient writings by Plato, and other Sumerian cuneiform documents, we see a comparable timeline of events unfolding, chronicling the demise of an advanced ancient human race. Both the Greeks and Indians believed in a cyclical process in time called the great year, or the Yugas. This was not limited to these two cultures; the Native Americans, along with the ancient Chinese, have similar myths describing events in the heavens that change the course of humanity on earth time and time again. It is my deepest fascination to search the underlying story on every level of the human experience and try to articulate the truth that is covered up by those who wish to control the thoughts and freedoms of all people.
