"And to this day, [those] who...know the self as I am Brahman [IS-ness], become all this universe. Even the gods [any other dimensional beings] cannot prevent his becoming this, for he has become their Self. ...if a man worships another deity thinking: He is one and I am another, he does not know. He [who does not know] is like a sacrificial animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish to the owner; how much more so when many are taken away! Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this [that they are IS-ness]."

There Were Giants Upon the Earth

'In just three verses and a few words -- forty-nine words in the original Hebrew of Genesis -- the Bible describes the creation of Heaven and Earth, then records an actual prehistoric time of early Mankind and a series of amazing events, including a global Flood, the presence on Earth of gods and their sons, inter-species intermarriage, and demigod offspring . . .
And so, starting with one word (Nefilim), I told the tale of the Anunnaki, "Those who from Heaven to Earth came" -- space travelers and interplanetary settlers who came from their troubled planet to Earth in need of gold, and ended up fashioning The Adam in their image. In doing so I brought them to life -- recognizing them individually, unraveling their tangled relationships, describing their tasks, loves, ambitions, and wars -- and identifying their inter-species offspring, the 'demigods'.'
