The Supergods: 
They Came on a Mission to Save Mankind
by Maurice Cotterell

Book Description
The ancient Mayan people predicted that the world will end in 2012 and believed we are living in the fifth, and final, age of the sun. These mysterious beliefs are now being backed up by modern scientific findings - but how did these people living more than 1,000 years ago in the jungles of Central America come to possess such extraordinary insight? Where did this super-knowledge come from? Combining the skills of a private detective with the passion of Indiana Jones, Cotterel journeys to Palenque, to the tomb of the Mayan priest-king Lord Pacal, to discover the truth. The amazing conclusions he reaches have profound implications for us all.

The Tutankhamun Prophecies: The Sacred Secret of the Maya, Egyptians, and Freemasons
by Maurice Cotterell

Reveals the common origins of the ancient Egyptian and Mayan civilizations.

  • Shows how these cultures had the ability to gaze into the heavens to predict the future unfolding of humanity and their place within the cosmic order.

  • The author's revelations about the Freemasons' connection to this ancient knowledge generated a firestorm of controversy in Europe.

  • By the author of the bestseller The Mayan Prophecies.

Maurice Cotterell's background as a scientist, mathematician, and engineer helped him to decipher the code of the ancient Maya, revealing the mystery of their science and religion to an extent never before possible. Using the same techniques, the author turns his attention here to deciphering the secrets encoded within the tomb of Tutankhamun. His extensive research revealed that both the ancient Egyptians and the Maya possessed a sophisticated understanding of sun spot activity and other astronomical phenomena--facts recently confirmed by modern science. Knowledge of the connections between solar patterns and human destiny allowed the Egyptians and Maya to harness the energy generated by the sun to achieve spiritual enlightenment and soul growth.

The link between reincarnation and solar energy encoded in the tombs of Tutankhamun and the Mayan Lord Pacal is a jealously guarded secret held by a select number of occult groups, including the higher orders of Freemasonry. The author unleashed a firestorm of controversy in Europe when he exposed much of the esoteric knowledge of the Freemasons, including one of the society's most carefully concealed secrets: incarnate gods like Lord Pacal and Tutankhamun have come to earth to help humans achieve spiritual enlightenment, soul growth, and individual realization as solar beings.

Fall of the Aztec and Maya Empires
Release Date: June 22, 1999
Run Time: 65 minutes

When Europe was in the Dark Ages, great cities were flourishing in Central America. This video explores how the Aztec and Mayan empires rose to startling heights and then mysteriously collapsed. When the Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés landed in 1519 in what is today Mexico, he and his soldiers were dumbfounded by the large cities they encountered. Using innovative computer graphics, this video shows what the great Aztec urban centers might have looked like when Cortés and his men first saw them. The Mayan empire, which flourished before the Aztecs, from approximately 300 to 900 A.D., is also examined in this video, which pays particular attention to how some Mayan influence still resonates in contemporary Mexico. The Mayans and Aztecs developed complex and intelligent societies, and much of their culture is still mysterious to us, but this video does a good job of explaining the basic history of who these people were and how they lived. The video also presents the story of New Yorker John L. Stephens, who traveled to Central America in 1839 and brought back tales of great pyramids rising out of the jungle to an astonished public. The history in this video is intelligent and the technical innovations, such as the computer-generated lost cities of the Mayans and Aztecs, make for an enjoyable and interesting presentation.
