Voices of the first Day by Robert Lawlor
Rear cover provides a quick snapshot of the books content much of it highly relevant to our gnostic viewpoint. Australian aboriginal societies  were gnostics all. Doing all the same  things that Tibetan- Indian  yogis do. All the shaman stuff of remote viewing, telepathy, healing, bilocation etc

And surprise surprise Australian aborigines may be the oldest people in the world, the first people, according to mitochondrial DNA analysis going back 400,000 yrs
Indeed they are known to be the first occupants of South America. The last one died in the 1990s.
Author Robert Lawlor has a healthy disrespect for  the western
 mindset and highlights some of its absurdities that require  serious correction, and guidance  and insight  is available from Australian aboriginal culture.
