Historical, Cultural, Ancient Civilizations, Modern Civilizations, Sociology
This is an amazing book. I had many eye-opening moments while reading. The author discusses how the ancient people were peaceful until about 6,000 years ago. He provides historical information that details “The Fall” and the differences between the pre-Fall and after-Fall civilizations.
The author explains how the indigenous people lived closer to the land and more in harmony than modern civilizations. They respected each other and the land as opposed to modern man trying to outdo each other. He discusses the possibility for the change from peaceful non-hierarchal societies to male dominated societies. Mr. Taylor also talks about the Ego Explosion when some societies moved away from the land and developed aggression.
The Fall was originally published in September 2005. The information is still as relevant now as it was when it was written. I found the book very interesting. The author’s writing style presented the information in an easy to understand format. This is a book I will read over again. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in ancient civilizations or anyone who would like to change the current way of life.
