The Soul of the Ape & My Friends the Baboons

EUGENE MARAIS / PAPERBACK & EBOOKS


“One of the great masterpieces of scientific literature. I would even say it is a master piece of literature alone. I hope this man is remembered by the future and not forgotten further.” – reader review


Eugene Marais spent three years living in the South African wilderness in close daily contact with a troop of baboons. He later described this as the happiest, most content time of his troubled life. This period produced two works which are testament to his research and conclusions; they have very different histories.

Firstly, there was a series of articles written in Afrikaans for the newspaper Die Vaderland. They were then published in book form under the title Burgers van die Berge, and were first published in an English translation in 1939 under the title My Friends the Baboons. These pieces were written in a popular vein suitable to a newspaper readership, and were not regarded seriously by Marais himself. They are a journal; a series of anecdotes and impressions.

The Soul of the Ape, which Marais wrote in beautifully clear and precise English, was the more serious scientific document; however after his death in 1936, it could not be found. It was lost for 32 years, and was recovered in 1968, and published the following year.

The excellent introduction by Robert Ardrey that is included in this volume was part of the 1969 and subsequent editions of The Soul of the Ape, and adds greatly to an appreciation of its importance.

Together, these three texts give us as complete a picture as we will ever get of Marais’ three year study of these complex relatives of humanity, and its implications for the study of consciousness.

My Friends the Baboons

EUGENE MARAIS / KINDLE & EPUB EBOOKS


My Friends the Baboons is that rare piece of writing; a paper of scientific observation which could reduce anyone of compassion to tears – for who cannot be moved by the final chapter when a tribe of baboons appeals to Marais and his companion to save their young?

Marais, journalist, poet, scholar and scientist, spent more than three years studying the chacma baboons in the wild, and his notes, comments and conclusions in this pioneering work have been a source of inspiration since they were written. At the time he began his work, he was able to study a troop of baboons who had never known man. The four-year Boer War removed the settlers, and the baboon troop led an undisturbed life, with no fear of their modern and most devastating foe: human farmers.

The Wheel of Health

GUY WRENCH / PAPERBACK AND EBOOK


“Why not research health, as well as disease?”

The Hunza of northern Pakistan were famous for their extraordinary vitality and health.

Dr Wrench argues that in part at least,this is because their food was not made ‘sophisticated’, by the artificial processes typically applied to modern processed food. How these processes affect our food is dealt with in great detail in this book.

The answer that Dr Wrench uncovered in his researches goes deeper than just the food, though. The real answer lies in what was special about the Hunza’s water supply.

A new edition, illustrated.

The Soul of the Ape

Eugene Marais


Kindle, epub

Early in the 20th century Eugène Marais, South African journalist, lawyer, poet and natural scientist, travelled to the wild Northern Transvaal and lived for three years at close quarters with a troop of chacma baboons.
The Soul of the Ape is the record of his experiences and observations. Lost for forty years, the manuscript was rediscovered by Robert Ardrey, who dedicated his African Genesis to Marais. Ardrey believed that Marais’ work “presents better than any other book published thus far the dawning of humanity in the psyche of the higher primate.”

This book is both a rare personal document and a pioneering study of the primitive mind.

The Blood and its Third Element

ANTOINE BECHAMP / PAPERBACK, KINDLE & EPUB


“This is an excellent book for knowledge seekers who do not take anything at face value…”

“What Dr. Béchamp is describing is a foundational concept. According to his experiments and observations, these tiny particles he named “microzymas” have an active role in sustaining and also in terminating life. Béchamp searched for and found the same particles and activity even in limestone, from the ancient shelled creatures whose bodies were incorporated into the stone. They still retained their activity. As the organizing life-principle of a complex body ceases to operate – as it dies – the microzymas take up their role of breaking it down and returning its elements to nature to be taken up by other life forms.”

The Soul of the White Ant

Eugene Marais


Paperback, Kindle, Epub, Audiobook


“As a safari Guide in the Okavango Botswana for many years, I used this book as a basis for presenting a fascination for the smaller creatures of the African bush, my home for my entire life and which I was privileged to share with many clients from different countries. Termite mounds are really interesting and Eugene Marais compared the infrastructure of a termitary to that of the human body. Writing from the heart, this scientific author instills a wonder in the reader, of the incredible intricacies of nature, in a light-hearted, easily readable manner.”


“An excellent read – astonishing for its time. A heartfelt and truly holistic/metaphysical observation of how the colony functions which is deeply thought provoking…”


Illuminati

MYRON FAGAN / PAPERBACK, KINDLE & EPUB


In 1967, Myron Fagan released a three-LP set titled “Illuminati”. This recording has been transcribed and used as the basis for this edition, published in 2017 by A Distant Mirror in paperback, Kindle and epub formats.

Myron Fagan describes how the Illuminati became the instrument of the Rothschilds to achieve a One World Government, and how every war during the past two centuries was instigated by this group.

This is an historical text with names, dates, organization and, mode of operations, exposing the octopus gripping the world. Fagan exposes the Rothschilds’ involvement, Zionism, Luciferian ideology, the destruction of national sovereignty and religions, Freemasonry, the Illuminist media and banksters, and the plan for three World Wars.

Ten Acres is Enough

EDMUND MORRIS / PAPERBACK, KINDLE & EPUB


“Recently we have seen a great back-to-the-land movement, with many young professional people returning to small scale farming; thus it is great fun to read about someone who did exactly the same thing in 1864. In that year, Mr. Edmund Morris gave up his business and city life for a farm of ten acres, made a go of mixed farming and then wrote a book about it. Mr. Morris proves Abraham Lincoln’s prediction: ‘The greatest fine art of the future will be the making of a comfortable living from a small piece of land’.” – Sally Fallon, The Weston Price Foundation
