Andrew Collins


Andy_Harran_croppedAndrew Collins is a historical writer and explorer living in the United Kingdom. He is the author of more than a dozen books that challenge the way we perceive the past. They include From the Ashes of Angels (1996), which establishes that the Watchers of the book of Enoch and the Anunnaki of the Sumerian texts are the memory of a shamanic elite that catalyzed the Neolithic revolution in the Near East at the end of the last ice age; Gateway to Atlantis (2000), which pins down the source of Plato’s Atlantis to the Caribbean island of Cuba and the Bahaman archipelago; Tutankhamun: The Exodus Conspiracy (coauthored with Chris Ogilvie Herald, 2002), which reveals the truth behind the discovery of Tutankhamun’s famous tomb; and The Cygnus Mystery (2007), which shows that the constellation of Cygnus has been universally venerated as the place of first creation and the entrance to the sky world since Paleolithic times.

In 2008 Andrew and colleague Nigel Skinner Simpson discovered a previously unrecorded cave complex beneath the pyramids of Giza, which has brought him worldwide acclaim. It is a story told in his book Beneath the Pyramids (2009).

Andrew’s latest book Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods is the culmination of twenty years’ study of the origins of the Watchers and Nephilim of the book of Enoch, and the Anunnaki of Sumerian myth and legend.

Talk 1: UFOs, Plasma and the Multi-dimensional Experience

Ever since the Roswell incident of 1947, we have perceived UFOs through the focused lens of the technological age, assuming them to be nuts and bolts spacecraft from other planets. What if that is wrong, and they are manifestations of a more primary energy – formed not from physical matter but from plasma, the so-called fourth state of matter, which fills almost the entire universe.

What if the sentience and intelligence so often reported in connection with mysterious light forms, and even “structured” UFOs, is in fact a type of life form that exists only in plasma environments, in a manner similar to how animal and human life needs air to survive? What if becoming too close to these light forms can induce a two-way quantum connection that enables the object to manifest into anything we might wish – flying saucer, light being, the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ, or the elves, fairies and goblins of folklore? What if interacting with these plasma constructs enables us to enter multi-dimensional states – bubble universes – in which a quite separate reality is played out – one in which we encounter these light intelligences in a manner that in our modern mechanistic way of thinking we transform into the alien abduction experience? Is it time to rethink all we know about the UFO phenomenon? The resounding answer is yes.

These are questions that Andrew Collins asks in his lecture “LightQuest: UFOs, Alien Intelligences and Plasma Forms: The Key to Multi-dimensional Experiences.

Talk 2: Göbekli Tepe—Genesis of the Gods

Who Built It, When, and Why?

A Unique Audio-Visual Presentation

 Göbekli Tepe is a name that will be familiar to anyone interested in the ancient mysteries subject. Billed as the oldest stone temple in the world, it is composed of a series of megalithic structures containing rings of beautifully carved T-shaped pillars. It sits on a mountain in southeast Turkey, just eight miles (thirteen kilometres) from the ancient city of Urfa, Abraham’s traditional birthplace. Here its secrets have remained hidden beneath an artificial, belly-shaped mound for the last ten thousand years. Agriculture and animal husbandry were barely known when Göbekli Tepe was built, and roaming the fertile landscape of southwest Asia were, we are told, primitive hunter-gatherers, whose sole existence revolved around survival on a day-to-day basis.

So what is Göbekli Tepe? Who created it, and why? More pressingly, why did its builders bury their creation at the end of its useful life?

Andrew Collins, author of new book Gobekli Tepe: Genesis of the Gods (Bear & Co, 2014), answers these questions, and shows that the myths of the Watchers of the biblical land of Eden and the Anunnaki of Mesopotamian myth and legend are a memory of the Gobekli Builders and their impact on the rise of civilization.
