"One avenue we intend to pursue is the possibility that so extreme are the features of these two skulls and skeletons it is feasible that they are not only the ancestors of all Original people, but the ‘Adam’ and ‘Eve’ whose genetics lead to the emergence of a new hominin strand that spread throughout the planet: Homo sapiens sapien."

"Frederic Slater was acknowledged by academics and government alike, as one of the top experts on Original culture and rock engravings and also extremely knowledgeable in all things ancient Egyptian. So great was his stature and wealth of knowledge, he was elected by his peers to be the President of the Australian Archaeological, Educational and Research Society of Australia."
"The opening placement of stones on the southern edge, which looks very much like a medicine wheel, was interpreted by Slater to read as “guided by truth, man came to Earth through darkness from light of life that shines far off.” This extra-terrestrial theme of somebody or being coming to this planet from “far off” is repeated throughout these constructions, extolling that the “truth was brought out on wings to Earth” and “the Divine Light from afar to the Earth brings the soul to man.”
It is a site without parallel on the east coast of Australia at so many levels. The means of construction, significance, content, sacredness and real possibility that this arrangement chronicles the first time modern humans devised a formal means of expressing words and thoughts, are but some of issues that need to be investigated.
In what only adds to the intrigue, Slater is not only adamant that the ancient Egyptians were not only present (and most probably assisting in the transport of sandstone and fill) but they came in homage and reverence. He asserted that “there is no mistaking the fact that the Aborigines… gave not only to the Egyptians their knowledge and their foundation of hieroglyphics and their philosophy, but formulated the basis of all knowledge in the beginning, now and to come.”"
According to Steven and Evan Strong, it used to take years to do the ceremonies required to get to the top of the mound. It's the oldest temple on the planet, not exclusively Original, but belonging to the world. They believe that the first men and women on earth, their ritual and history, are all recorded there.
"If we look at the evidence presented to us by the explorers and explain to our children that Aboriginal people did build houses, did build dams, did sow, irrigate and till the land, did alter the course of rivers, did sew their clothes, and did construct a system of pan-continental government that generated peace and prosperity, then it is likely we will admire and love our land all the more" - Bruce Pascoe"
"One of the most vivid accounts was from explorer Charles Sturt, who was the first European to penetrate the interior and see the Simpson Desert.
In his 1844-1846 expedition, Sturt was near death, having already lost some of his exploration party, when he came across a group of some 400 Aboriginals.
They saved his life by giving him water, roast duck and cake which had been made from their own grain, Mr Pascoe said. Sturt repeatedly described the cake as the “best cake he had ever eaten”, even after his hunger had been satiated.
“He describes it in great detail, he describes the method of the milling, the flavour, and he even goes as far as to give a short recipe,” Mr Pascoe said in a phone interview.
“They still call it ‘the dead heart of Australia’ and here he was eating cake made from flour harvested there.”"
Which leads to another story that Bruce told from his book, and that I myself have told numerous times since I read his book. Again, the account is described beautifully in this article.
"Later they witnessed the people fishing with canoes, lines and nets. The purpose of the weirs gradually became clear. They were made by damming the stream behind large earthen platforms into which channels were let in order to direct fish as required. On one particular day Kirby noticed a man by one of these weirs. He wrote that:
a black would sit near the opening and just behind him a tough stick about ten feet long was stuck in the ground with the thick end down. To the thin end of this rod was attached a line with a noose at the other end; a wooden peg was fixed under the water at the opening in the fence to which this noose was caught, and when the fish made a dart to go through the opening he was caught by the gills, his force undid the loop from the peg, and the spring of the stick threw the fish over the head of the black, who would then in a most lazy manner reach back his hand, undo the fish, and set the loop again around the peg.
How did Kirby interpret this activity? After describing the operation in such detail and appearing to approve of the its efficiency, he wrote, “I have often heard of the indolence of the blacks and soon came to the conclusion after watching a blackfellow catch fish in such a lazy way, that what I had heard was perfectly true.”
Kirby’s preconceptions of what he was going to find on this frontier are so powerful that he skews his detailed observations to that prejudice."

He talked about many other lost cities being found with this technology, that was forcing us to reassess ancient cultures. Like Nan Madol, an ancient coral reef city, and Kumari Kandam, or Lemuria, a sunken land mass that Madagascans and Originals both talk about, with the Tamil people uncovering ancient tools and texts. The Tamil timeline also connects to the Originies, and what Stella Wheildon was talking about.

When it came to the impenetrable scrub in the mountains of my youth, and the belief I had that the explorers had to struggle their way through it, I found this from the same book..."In the Blue Mountains Evans reported "spaces of Ground of 3 or 400 Acres with grass growing within them that you can scarce walk through; the ground is strong and good with ponds of water which lead to the River; but when within a 1/4 of a Mile or so of it the course becomes a Rocky gully, and so steep between the hills, that no person would suspect such places were up them" pg 72
"In the Blue Mountains Jean Quoy found "vast forests where you walk beneath very pleasant domes of verdure. We noticed that all of these were blackened right up, and circumstance due to the fact, the natives liking to set alight the grasses and brushwood obstructing their way, the fire often catches the fibrous bark of the largest trees, which then burn without their trunk being in any way damaged by it and without injuring the vegetation of their tops." pg158

"Evans was moderately impressed in the Blue Mountains. It had 'a fine appearance, the Trees being thin and the hills covered....with pasture to their tops; This Range is rather overrun with underwood and larger Timber growing thereon, but the sides are as green as possible'." pg 188
"Similar clearings pocked Blue Mountains forest. Above Grose Valley in 1804 was 'a small piece of ground, which was destitute of trees, and no herbaceous brush', north of Katoomba in 1813 'about two thousand acres of land Clear of trees', and further west 'spaces of Ground of 3 or 400 Acres with grass growing within them that you can scarce walk through'." pg 207 (italics and bold mine)
