A Vedic Alternative to Darwin's Theory by Michael Cremo. As in archeology, there has been in physics a huge process of knowledge filtration. Empirical evidence of the paranormal, out of body experiences, past life remembrances, cross cultural study of cosmologies, historical accounts avatars, various apparitions, UFOs and "aliens" all converge to suggest that we do not evolve up from matter, but that we rather devolve, or come down, from the level of pure consciousness by a process of intelligently guided reproduction with modification. This book reviews the evidence and ties it all together with reference to Vedic paradigms.
