Is the end of time approaching?
What does this tell us about the secret of immortality, the creation of an indestructible Light Body?
What is alchemy and why have so many creative people throughout history been obsessed with it?
Was Isis and her veil used as a metaphor for the center of our Galaxy?
Who was Fulcanelli and why is he so important?
Why does a mysterious monument in the Basque region of France point to a date in the near future? And just what is going to happen on September 22nd, 2002?
These questions and more are answered in A Monument to the End of Time. This is the story of two independent researchers who stumble onto the greatest mystery of the twentieth century. At the heart of the mystery is an anonymous alchemist, known as Fulcanelli, and his book, The Mystery of the Cathedrals, first published in 1926. The secrets presented in this famous, but apparently unknown book suggest that it is a work of profound importance -- but no one will say why! A Monument to the End of Time reveals the truth behind the mystery of Fulcanelli: The alchemical transmutation of the soul and the most dramatic event in human history -- the end of time as we know it. A Monument to the End of Time unveils the greatest alchemical secret of all -- that history is an initiatory process. And the final stage of that initiation is about to occur.
No one could be more qualified to tell this remarkable story than its two authors. They have a combined 50 years of exploration, experience and research into the many diverse subjects required to unravel this incredible mystery. Comparable to Graham Hancock's best-selling books Fingerprints of the Gods and Mystery of the Sphinx, A Monument to the End of Time is part of a new genre of scholarly non-fiction detective stories that is helping to rediscover our ancient past and our forgotten spiritual heritage. A Monument to the End of Time carries on the tradition of this newly emerging genre in fine literary style and with a depth of detailed evidence guaranteed to convince believers and skeptics alike.
The end of time is coming, soon.
