Revealing a forgotten truth in the present day, this account illuminates the crumbling political and economic structures of the West, shedding light on an ongoing and arduous search for a sense of purpose. Recounting a true story, this exploration tells of a wandering Mongol shaman who made a dramatic appearance around the Mediterranean centuries before the time of Christ. Highlighting how this nomad came as an envoy on a mission of purification, this study records how he met with a man who became tremendously influential in Western science, philosophy, culture, and religion: Pythagoras. The essence of Western civilization is said to have originated from this meeting andnbsp;this examination argues that today's conflicts and tensions have stemmed from taking this monumental occasion for granted, forgetting that there must be a greater meaning to life than everyday efforts and struggles. Reflecting on a time when Eastern and Western cultures were one, this evocation contends that there is still a common spiritual heritage to all civilizations. A unique collaboration between the author and archaeologists, historians, and shamans from around the world, this document has the potential to change the future for all.

I am surprised at the high average rating of this book. It is little more than a pseudo-myth couched in some migration history. Archeology has found clear evidence of East/West trade in early modern civilization, no surprise there. Golden arrows shot through mountain ranges to create a path, well, nice symbolism but it says nothing to me. If you like Cahil Gilbran and that ilk of writing, you will like this book. It is not my cup of reality-tea.
