Curious Matrix

Curiosity is all around us. You just need to explore it. This book is doing exactly that – exploring various questions and hypotheseses about past, present and future world and society we’re living in. What you are going to read is by no means scientifically accurate in every way or a complete truth, but it is one man’s reflections on different topics with a pinch of creativity. A good part of the book is supported by various research, but a good portion is open to the imagination. That’s why I wrote this book, to share my view, which can be correct, it can be fictional and imaginable, but it is curious and explorational in many ways. That is the essence of writing – to explore your mind while bringing fiction closer to nonfiction. The book consists of 18 chapters that are not connected subjectwise but are somehow connected in curiosity. Those chapters are structured to make you question your foundations of thinking and consider difficult subjects. Whether those are; a future world with sex robots, a world without weapons, or perhaps a world without electricity, I think they are very interesting questions that are open to interpretation.

Meet Domagoj Pernar

Born and raised in Croatia, Domagoj Pernar was always a curious fellow. From his young days, he was interested in many different topics ranging from Russian authors such as Dostoevsky to interests in computers, informatics science, and mechanics. Later in life, he started researching philosophical theories and the potential for a dystopian end of society (perhaps that’s why he was born in 1984.) These interests in the philosophy and meaning of life, potential future developments of the world, and overall curiosity about today’s (and past) world led to journaling of his thoughts.

Earth’s First Civilization, Antarctica, 55 Million B.C.

Explore evidence of an Advanced Civilization that existed on the Antarctic Continent in the Paleocene Epoch, and other mysterious cultures of prehistory. To explore these remarkable finds, this book has four primary purposes: 1) to present archaeological and other competent evidence demonstrating that civilizations of tremendous antiquity once existed on our planet—evidence either known, inexactly known, or currently tentative; 2) to examine evidence regarding the true age of those civilizations; 3) to explore the possible origins of those civilizations; and 4) to reveal the profound esoteric knowledge and technical abilities possessed by the cultures of those civilizations. For decades the archaeological community labored under the theory that human civilization began after the last Ice Age. The theory conjectured that, prior to that time, humans were no more than primitive hunter-gatherers incapable of communal organization or sophisticated abilities, and it was only after the last glacial period—following the melting of the 10,000 foot thick ice sheets that covered much of the northern portion of the world’s continents—that our human ancestors began to develop agriculture and complex economic and social structures, sometime around 4000 B.C. Contemporary discoveries have dramatically undermined those theories. Modern research has unearthed buried civilizations and discovered hidden cities one after another—archaeology now reconstructs an unsuspected antiquity of man and paints a canvas of stunningly mysterious dimensions. Previous academic accounts of the origins of civilization have fallen forfeit to evidence from archaeological sites worldwide, including Thebes (c. 37,900 BC), Edfu (c. 18,000 BC), Turkey (c. 12,000 BC), Bolivia (c. 15,000 BC), Indonesia (c. 22,000 BC), and, most intriguingly, on the Antarctic Continent. The stunning discovery in Antarctica, if fully confirmed, will represent the greatest archaeological find of history. Organization & Content: Part I of this book explores the true antiquity of civilization on this planet, examines the ancient traditions and theogonies that shed light on the existence and age of prehistoric civilizations, details the substantial evidence for a Paleocene civilization on the Antarctic continent 55 million years ago, and takes an inside look at recent astronomical and cosmological discoveries. As the study of antiquity is properly accounted purely academic except as it may be made living knowledge which illuminates and enriches our contemporary life, a comprehensive Special Bonus Supplement containing Parts II and III of this book explore the extremely rare arcane knowledge of the ancient world, along with the powerful abilities that can be attained from the study of that knowledge, ones that convey benefits of great value in our modern world. Doubtless many of the very earliest chapters of our planet’s history will lie forever silent under her most desolate soil and deepest waters, yet extant legends and traditions have been too readily set aside—academic pundits love to brand as mythical the accounts which have endured the millennia, and which mischievously persist. We invite you to explore amazing discoveries and knowledge that for long millenniums has remained concealed under layers of legend, myth, and secrecy. A truly incomparable book for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge and personal power, and especially fascinating for anyone interested in the realities behind the ubiquitous legends of antediluvian civilizations and the possibility of ancient extraterrestrial influences. 2021 Edition, for more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.

Bored on the Wild Side: Memories, Observations, and Misadventures

Forty five years of stumbling, bumbling, and striving to make the American dream a reality. Beginning in the mid-1970s and hitting the brakes days before the 2020 elections, this compelling memoir shows us where we’ve been and where we might be headed via one man’s memories and experiences.
While it may read like a novel, every word is true: good, bad, and ugly.
Talk is cheap and some actions have expensive consequences. What’s worse? Regretting some of the things you’ve done, or wondering what might have been? Do you have the guts to chase your crazy dreams and live up to your highest ideals, or are your convictions as shallow as the ink on your T-shirt?
Filled with interesting characters, uncommon adventures, and gallows humor throughout, this is the tale of an individual who played it to the hilt until he was bored. Bored on the wild side.

Antarctica and The Lost Civilization

#1 New Release, Antarctica History. Explore Evidence of a Lost Civilization on the Antarctic Continent. For decades the archaeological community labored under the theory that human civilization began only following the last Ice Age. Contemporary discoveries have dramatically undermined that conjecture. Modern research has unearthed hidden cities one after another—archaeology now reconstructs an unsuspected antiquity of man and paints a canvas of stunningly mysterious dimensions. Previous academic accounts of the origins of civilization have fallen forfeit to evidence from archaeological sites worldwide, including Thebes (c. 37,900 BC), Edfu (c. 18,000 BC), Turkey (c. 12,000 BC), Bolivia (c. 15,000 BC), Indonesia (c. 22,000 BC), and, most intriguingly, in Antarctica. To explore these remarkable finds and their implications, the explorations in this book are organized as follows: • Part I: The Ancient Civilizations — Provides archaeological background and information regarding the pre-Younger Dryas Boundary event civilizations, 10,770 B.C. or earlier, and the other known cataclysmic astronomical events that eradicated most evidence of prehistoric civilization from the historical record. The ‘YDB’ event, which occurred circa 10,770 B.C., is thought to have been caused by the air-bursts or impacts of several comets, or possibly a mile-wide meteorite that impacted Greenland’s northern ice cap (the Hiawatha glacier), resulting in massive shockwaves and firestorms sweeping across the continents and initiating a 1200 year-long epoch of terminal environmental change, including devastating cold, perpetual darkness, massive floods, and catastrophic faunal extinction. Also examines the ancient traditions and extant evidence of the accomplishments and technology of currently known ancient cultures. • Part II: A Very Ancient City in Antarctica — Provides a detailed account of the satellite imaging evidence for the remains of an extensive Paleocene civilization existing under the ice of Antarctica, including “intelligently-made structures, resembling some sort of pyramidal and rectangular buildings.” Also examines the ice-core derived, isotopic record from the Paleogene and Neogene geologic periods indicating that the infrastructure of an advanced civilization existed on the Antarctic continent approximately 55.5 million years ago, and may have been inhabited for 300,000 or more years. Examines additional evidence of anomalous high-energy particles emitting from the Antarctic ice sheet. • Part III: Our Cosmos — An overview of our incredible universe, including recent cosmological and astronomical discoveries, e.g., that the number of galaxies in the observable universe is more than ten trillion, and that our galaxy as a whole may contain over 40 billion “earth-like” (terrestrial) planets. Examines new results of calculating the Drake equation based on the most recent Kepler survey data and detailed studies of exoplanet atmospheres, estimating that extraterrestrial civilizations in our galaxy may number in the millions. • Parts IV & V: Bonus Anthology Section, Secrets of the Ancient Civilizations — Anthology of related material revealing the profound secret knowledge and esoteric powers possessed by the cultures of ancient civilizations, including prehistoric Egypt and the 4000 year-old kingdom of Zhang Zhung on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, along with the powerful abilities that can be attained from the study of that knowledge, ones that convey benefits of great value in our modern world. We invite you to explore amazing discoveries and knowledge that for long millenniums has remained concealed under layers of legend, myth, and secrecy. A truly incomparable book for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge and personal power, and especially fascinating for anyone interested in the realities behind the ubiquitous legends of antediluvian civilizations and the possibility of ancient extraterrestrial influences. 2021 Release, e-reader page count 315 (estimated, actual count varies with the reading device used). A Kindle Unlimited Book. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
