The Electric Mirror on the Pharos Lighthouse and Other Ancient Lighting
Brent Raynes of Alternate Perceptions reviewed Larry Brian Radka's Electric Mirror on the Pharos Lighthouse and Other Ancient Lighting as follows:
"The author of Historical Evidence for Unicorns and Astronomical Revelations or 666, now brings us a heavily illustrated book that presents a considerable amount of documentation to suggest that ancient mankind had long ago harnessed the power of electricity. While many of our readers may have already heard of the fairly well publicized Baghdad Battery, a 2000 year old earthenware vase actually found just outside of Bagdad, at Khujut Rabu, in 1936, author Larry Brian Radka, a retired Broadcast engineer, has much more evidence to offer.
"With a very keen eye, an effective combination of imagination and insight, and undoubtably an unquenchable curiosity and thirst for the truth, Radka takes the reader around the globe in search of hidden clues and elusive answers. The journey includes impressive legends and evidences of Alexandria’s ancient Pharos Lighthouse, Greek coins depicting an ancient searchlight at Sicily’s Strait of Messina, a Babylonian marble cuneiform tablet dated around 850 B.C. that seems to both depict and describe an ancient searchlight, as well as apparent searchlight depictions in ancient Buddhist and Egyptian pictographs, a view of the Old Testament’s Ark of the Covenant as an electrical instrument, which reportedly also contained a “light,” along with assorted other ancient odds and ends with comparisons to our modern electrical knowledge and equipment.
"Radka also parades out information and illustrations of electrical technology developed in modern times, making startling comparisons between these and presumed ancient counterparts. A sweeping and comprehensive historical compilation with over 200 high quality illustrations and photographic reproductions of ancient coins, bas-reliefs, site maps, ancient ruins, along with extensive footnotes, endnotes, a bibliography, a photo appendix and two indexes, all of which will undoubtably test and challenge your historical preconceptions regarding the development of electrical technology, if not shake them to their very core!"
The "endnotes, a bibliography, a photo appendix and two indexes" follow immediately after these two pictures (the inside and outside of Larry's back cover) of The Electric Mirror on the Pharos Lighthouse and Other Ancient Lighting:
