Brien Foerster is a driving force in the world of ancient mysteries and alternative history. Having appeared on History Channel’s Ancient Aliens on fifteen occasions, and boasting 23 authored books to-date, he ranks amongst the likes of Erich von Däniken, David Hatcher Childress, Robert Bauval and Giorgio A. Tsoukalos. His search for ancient discoveries is never-ending, and his passion equally contagious. In recent years he has brought some particularly astonishing findings to the table, and we’re here to discuss them with Brien.
During our interview, we concentrate mainly on his book, “Elongated Skulls Of Peru And Bolivia: The Path Of Viracocha,” questioning him on a variety of topics, though mainly focusing on artificial cranial deformation (ACD); potentially naturally-occurring elongated skulls; megaliths of the region; and the Paracas people in specific.
Cranial deformations in themselves have always been a fascinating subject, and the focus of many a history book and TV shows; however, it’s fair to say that the idea of naturally occurring elongated craniums is a lot less heard-of, largely because of the lack of evidence in the past. That is to say, until recent discoveries were made, we have always been told that elongated skulls (such as those found in South America) were the result of artificial deformations, e.g. via head-boarding or head-binding. These new discoveries, on the other hand, point to something far more mind-blowing: namely, the idea that these people were born with skulls like that, and that they may well be a type of humanoid species unlike anything we’ve ever discovered before, given that they don’t match any genetic data recorded to-date. This leads us to the question: where did this people come from? Who are they? Of course, the word on the (conspiracy)street is that aliens were somehow involved. And sure, it sounds absurd, but, given the overall information that we currently have, extra-terrestrials are indeed just as likely as any other theory. The fact remains, we have no idea how these people came to be, how they came to look and behave as they did, and why they so suddenly disappeared from history. The possibility that something, from somewhere else, got involved with these people, perhaps experimented with them, interbred, or taught them useful skills and imparted valuable knowledge upon them, doesn’t seem quite so absurd when you impartially follow the train-of-thought that some of the theorists in this field propose.
We ourselves remain open-minded to a number of possibilities, but as usual, we just want you to venture into this topic with an open mind and your biases left aside – the discoveries made by Brien Foerster and his colleagues are not be scoffed at, and could very well be the turning point in this huge paradigm-shift that is undoubtedly about to occur.
We urge you to do your research, read and listen to as much information as possible, and make up your own mind – and enjoy the interview!
Brien also writes articles for GrahamHancock.com, so be sure to check out his material on there.
Brien currently lives in Peru with his wife, dividing his time between Paracas and Cuzco and, apart from leading numerous tours all year round, he is the assistant director of the Paracas History Museum. So, if you’re heading towards Peru any time soon, you know who to hit up!
For those living in the US and perhaps prefer something a little closer to home, we couldn’t recommend Contact In The Desert 2017 enough (May 19th-22nd), where Brien Foerster will be making an appearance. The West Of The Rockies team will also be there, so be sure to say hi to all of us!
