The Neanderthal Legacy

Reawakening Our Genetic and Cultural Origins

A direct appeal for a revolution in our educational system to restore the connection with our Neanderthal heritage

• Examines the genetic evidence for Neanderthal/Cro-Magnon crossbreeding and the dual-nature effects this hybrid cross produced

• Explains the influence of the Neanderthal’s enlarged cerebellum on our modern brain function and psychic and paranormal abilities

In The Neanderthal Legacy, eminent psychologist and paranormal researcher Stan Gooch brings together the wide-ranging investigative strands of his lifetime of study of the human brain. One of the world’s leading experts on the influence of Neanderthal Man on the cultural and biological development of humanity, Gooch contends that the Neanderthals’ enlarged cerebellum was a source of deep connection with the psychic and dream worlds, which remains extant in modern man in paranormal phenomena that conventional science cannot explain.

Gooch offers new scientific evidence of the crossbreeding between Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons that is responsible for the dichotomous nature of our feelings, thoughts, impressions, beliefs, and even our cultural mores and politics. The “hybrid vigor” produced by this mating has gifted modern man with abilities and sensibilities that the scientific establishment and conventional educational system entirely ignore. The author explores the legacy of our Neanderthal ancestors in an effort to awaken their virtues and qualities, which are so needed in our modern world.

FROM CHAPTER 2

Left: Left Out

WE HAVE ALL NOTICED how difficult and awkward it is for a lefthanded individual to use our normal handwriting, which crosses the page from left to right. But in five major languages--Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, Arabic, and ancient Egyptian--writing crosses from right to left, which is of course the natural movement for a left-handed individual.
Go on, pick up a Japanese book today. The back cover is the front cover! The first page is the last page. It’s all back to front--as far as we right-handers are concerned.
So, sir/madame, how did this situation arise? Why... see more
