Holy Grail: Ancient Man
Brien Foerster was born in the United States but grew up on the west coast of Canada where he developed a fascination with Native art. Though he did graduate from a university with a BS Honors Degree, his passion for the art of the indigenous people caused him to become a professional carver of totem poles for over a decade.
At 35 he moved to the island of Maui in Hawaii and spent 2 years working with Hawaiian people building a 62 foot double hull sailing catamaran. This adventure led him to explore Polynesia for several years, and then he chose to visit Peru 15 years ago. His first tour guide in the Inca city of Cusco could not explain how the huge megalithic works of the area were made and by who, thus he began to explore using his scientific background, as well as the knowledge of local and foreign geologists, engineers and oral tradition experts the mysteries that underlie these astonishing stone works.
This has led to a revelation that the megalithic works of Peru, as well as those in Bolivia, Easter Island, Egypt, Lebanon, Lebanon, Turkey and other places were in fact created many thousands of years before any known culture, and were all seemingly devastated by a series of global cataclysms some 12,000 years ago.
In all, he has published 37 books as of August 2019, has appeared on numerous television shows, such as Ancient Aliens 20 times, numerous radio shows and podcasts, and has explored more than 100 countries. You can find more than 1300 of his videos on YouTube.

Eric Rankin is credited with discovering a significant and previously unknown connection between geometry and harmonics, where geometric forms provide the information needed to build numerically perfect major chords, the most melodic form of music. By extrapolation, Eric’s groundbreaking research offers a certain type of proof that our geometric universe is a symphonic system functioning in literal harmony with itself. What’s more, Eric’s findings take us back to a moment in time when an elegant “base-60” math system (which we still use today to measure time and space) and the worlds’ first written language were born.
His lectures introduce us to a monumental moment in human history—one that, though it challenges logic, also happens to involve a helping nudge from extraterrestrial visitors. You may not realize it, but if we are to believe any of what our first ancestors wrote as fact, we are currently living in a matrix put in motion over six thousand years ago by a technologically-advanced race of “sky-people.”
Eric’s research has been called the closest thing yet to smoking-gun proof that humanity has indeed been contacted by extraterrestrials in the past. Many researchers have touched on certain individual aspects of this, but so far no one has put more clues together to support this “Alien-Assistance” theory.
Eric’s Sonic Geometry videos have been viewed millions of times and translated into numerous languages, while his research and findings have been featured on Gaia TV, History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” as well as radio, television and podcast interviews all over the world. Eric is a featured speaker at conventions such as Contact in the Desert, Portal to Ascension, and Star Knowledge, and he is the only regularly-featured lecturer at the world-famous Integratron in California’s Mojave Desert. He currently sits on panels with some of today’s most renown researchers in the fields of physics, mathematics, human origins and extraterrestrial contact.

Cindy has been extremely intuitive since very early childhood. At the age of 10 she had her first memorable experience with a spirit. Days after losing a childhood friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience and convinced herself it was just a dream. It wasn’t until her early 20’s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multi-faceted abilities as a psychic medium. She began training not only in the United States but also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. She believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess and that everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!
