Deep Truth by Gregg Braden

Deep Truth by Gregg Braden is the book that asks the questions we should all be asking right now. The biggest one of course is: “Who are we?” If you are interested in science, spirituality, or just our world in general, this book will be highly relevant to you.

Book Description
Deep Truth reveals new discoveries that change the way we think about everything from our personal relationships to civilization itself. When the facts become clear, our choices become obvious.

The Crisis: 
Best-selling author and visionary scientist Gregg Braden suggests that the hottest topics that divide us as families, cultures, and nations-seemingly disparate issues such as war, terrorism, abortion, genocide, poverty, economic collapse, climate change, and nuclear threats-are actually related. They all stem from a worldview based upon the false assumptions of an incomplete science.

The History:
The obsolete beliefs of our modern worldview have brought us to the brink of disaster and the loss of all that we cherish as a civilization. Our reluctance to accept new discoveries about our relationship to the earth, one another, and our ancient past keeps us locked into the thinking that has led to the crises threatening our lives today.

The Facts:
The scientific method allows for, and expects, new information to be revealed and assimilated into our existing beliefs. It's the updating of scientific knowledge with the new facts from new discoveries that is the key to keeping science honest, current, and meaningful.
To continue teaching science that is not supported by the new discoveries-ones based upon accepted scientific methods-is not, in fact, scientific. But this is precisely what we see happening in traditional textbooks, classrooms, and mainstream media today.

The Opportunity:
Explore for yourself the discoveries that change 150 years of scientific beliefs, yet are still not reflected in mainstream thinking, including:
· Evidence of advanced, near-ice age civilizations
· The origin of, and reasons for, war in our ancient past, and why it may become obsolete in our time
· The false assumptions of human evolution and of the Darwinian theory "Let the strongest live and the weakest die" and how this plays out in corporations, societies, warfare, and civilization today

Deep Truth reveals new discoveries that change the way we think about everything from our personal relationships to civilization itself. When the facts become clear, our choices become obvious.” – Deep Truth

My Thoughts
Deep Truth is a remarkable book. It crosses the traditional boundaries between science and spirituality and melds it into something that (at least for me) is so “true.”

Gregg Braden uses strong, easy to understand analogies when explaining science and theories he writes about in the text. If you are new to expanding your thoughts from the “traditional” things taught to you in school, Braden makes the transition easy for you to see and actually question things, too. I really enjoyed his method of approaching the topics and also how he detailed them.

My favorite chapter in the book is “The Hidden History of Our Forgotten Past: Places That Should Not Exist.” I’m a huge Ancient Aliens fan, and I read or watch anything having to do with ancient civilizations, so this chapter was the one that was most interesting to me. Ever since finding out about these civilizations that “shouldn’t” be there, according to our textbooks, I have started questioning just about everything that is told to us as true in ancient history that might not possibly be accurate.

Overall, I extremely enjoyed reading Deep Truth, and I highly recommend it for everyone to read. It is truly a remarkable book that will leave you with a new way to look at things in the world, and also have you asking questions you may not have thought about before.
