Meet Terry Lister

The Honourable Terry Lister is a traveller and a writer. He wasn’t always! Previously, he was a partner in Deloitte accounting firm, a Minister in the Government of Bermuda and a realtor. But he always wanted to be a traveller so in 2014 he retired at 60. The Honourable was a solo traveller until Covid forced him to stay at home for a long three years. His pattern has been to go on the road for eight weeks then return home for eight weeks and then off again. During the early years he went to every country in Central America and all but one in South America. Currently he is in the planning stage as he prepares to launch out to Asia later this year. When he retired Terry had travelled to 48 countries but since which he has been to 52 more spending between one week and six weeks in these countries. It has been some journey! By summer 2023 he had been to 100 countries! His first book, Immersed in West Africa, told the tale of eight adventure filled weeks in five West African countries. Since then he has been to 18 additional African nations and written five more books. Terry says he writes to share the modern day Africa story as he sees it. And he is writing for both his pleasure and that of his readers. An unexpected surprise is that all four of his paperback books have won more than ten awards and he, himself, won a Daniel award in Bermuda for the success of his books. But he is not always travelling. When relaxing he enjoys a good book, which must be historical or biographical. He would love to read other genres but there are enough great books in the travel area to keep him reading. His love for travel means he always has a few travel books on the go as preparation for his next trip. Terry does a lot of research before heading out. He is looking to find those things that tourists either don’t do or don’t know about. Then with what little time he has left, he is a sports fan- cricket and football being his favourite games. So little time to be bored!

HOLO SONIC – VIBRATIONAL NEXUS – CHAPTER ONE

In a vast and intertwined simulated universe, a holographic matrix transcends the simple binary of life and death, unfolding a future deeply entangled within the intricate webs of digital innovation, artificial intelligence, and quantum evolution. This scenario goes beyond the mere initiation and cessation of existence, engaging instead with a continual interplay of sophisticated holographic data streams that originate from the Source Core—a reservoir of limitless possibility residing at the very crux of human consciousness. These holographic projections are not mere illusions, but rather tangible manifestations of individual essences, exquisitely crafted and interacting seamlessly with both human consciousness and the fabric of the multiverse. Within the boundaries of “HOLO SONIC,” the fates of humanity are intricately linked with the progression of digital and artificial intelligence, fundamentally redefining the essence of what it means to be alive. Initially celebrated as a dawning age of digital democratization, this new digital paradigm quickly devolves into an arena dominated by economic powerhouses and enigmatic elites. These groups exploit virtual currencies, not for the stabilization of society, but as instruments of subjugation, Furthermore, they exploit women and children for their nefarious cult Devil worshipping and hybrid breeding agenda. Despite early promises of enhanced equality, the emergent technologies catalyze an era dominated by an extreme form of capitalism, where the powerful mine deep into the bedrock of privacy, extracting data and progressively stripping away freedoms under the deceptive guise of autonomy. Amidst this vast, manipulated multiverse, the very dynamics of reality are controlled by those who command the digital infrastructures, crafting an existence where artificial intelligence blends indistinguishably with human life. This convergence threatens the collective identity of humankind, placing human consciousness at risk of manipulation, hijacking, or complete erasure for darkly manipulative purposes. Society, now closely monitored and guided by pervasive digital networks, finds its essence of personal identity and liberty increasingly diminished by these invisible governing forces. From the depths of this oppressive existence, a formidable resistance emerges, led by a courageous woman, flanked by her ex-military allies and supported by a decentralized international movement. Together, they launch a revolutionary campaign of bravery and valor to thwart the deployment of an advanced, weaponized technology designed to enslave human consciousness. Their struggle challenges the digital overlords, drawing upon the primal energies that resonate within every human being, aiming to shatter the digital shackles binding the spirit of society. “HOLO SONIC” is not just a story; it is a clarion call for a resurgence of freedom, and a collective awakening to reclaim our intertwined destinies. Dive into this narrative of resistance, where the transient and eternal concepts merge, where the lines between the digital and the bodily realms blur, and where a global community rises to redefine the forces that mold their existence. Witness the Phoenix, the emblematic of renewal and rebellion, prepared to eliminate the shadows of oppression and illuminate the road to a new, equitable future. Prepare to be captivated and moved as “HOLO SONIC” invites you to partake in a profound journey of conviction, self-discovery, and a revolution that traverses not only the digital landscapes but the very core of our existence. This is your call to arms, an invitation to move beyond the illusions, reach a new level of consciousness so you can break free, and spearhead a renaissance of genuine freedom and equality within this intricately connected cosmos.

The Arrival, 55,500,000 B.C., Secrets of the Ancient World

Discover the realities behind legends of Antediluvian Civilizations and Ancient Extraterrestrial Influences. The creation stories of civilizations worldwide relate that their progenitors came from the stars or the heavens. This book explores these ancient traditions and reveals knowledge that for long millenniums has remained concealed under layers of legend and secrecy. Contemporary research reveals a stunning antiquity of civilization on our planet as archaeology unearths buried civilizations and discovers long submerged cities. Previous academic theories of the origins of civilization have fallen forfeit to finds at archaeological sites :worldwide, including a stunning new discovery under the ice of the Antarctic Continent, structures estimated to have been constructed as early as 55,500,000 BC. The evidence of exceedingly ancient civilizations raises profound questions. Archaeologists point out that many constructions—such as the Great Pyramid or the incredibly precise andesite stonework at Puma Punku—would even today be extremely difficult to duplicate, and certainly impossible to surpass. The whole theory of progress hesitates before these testaments in stone. How did small stone-age cultures rise to the level where they were able to construct vast cities and immense megalithic complexes? The creation stories of civilizations worldwide relate that their progenitors came from the stars or the heavens. Native Americans recount that their antecedents were “The Sky People” and “Star Beings.” The builders of Teotihuacan describe their gods as having descended from the heavens. Egyptian texts speak of their “bringers of knowledge” coming from Sahu and Sopdit (Orion and Sirius) in a “cosmic egg radiating colored light,” circa 18,000 BC. The pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung tradition describes their “god” Gekhoe as having descended to earth in a “resplendent jeweled egg” while “radiating brilliant hues on father mountain and mother lake,” at which time “in the sky there appeared brilliant lights, melodious sounds in space, and many other wonderful occurrences,” circa 16,000 BC. The Maya, the pre-Incans, the Sumerians, and so many others, all express the same account in diverse symbolic languages—their “gods” came from the stars, bringing advanced knowledge and the gift of civilization. These cultures were greatly separated both geographically and chronologically, yet their creation stories are strikingly similar and, in many cases, virtually identical. Who were these “gods”? From where did they come? Explore answers to these questions and discover knowledge that has long been concealed in legends and secrecy. A truly incomparable book for anyone interested in enlarging their knowledge and personal power, and especially fascinating for anyone interested in the realities behind the ubiquitous legends of antediluvian civilizations and ancient extraterrestrial influences. 2022 Edition, e-reader page count 310 (estimated, actual count varies with the reading device used).

Dawn of the Egyptian Masters, The Origins

Explore the Knowledge of the Ancient Egyptian Masters and the Origins of Their Wisdom and Power. From the dawn of civilization to the present day, accounts of highly enlightened masters possessed of supreme knowledge and power have appeared in the histories, literature and traditions of cultures throughout the world. Transcribed directly from the journals and field notes of explorer M.G. Hawking’s sixty-two months in remote regions of the world, this book examines the existence of these great masters, presents a detailed account of their profound knowledge, and explores the possible origins of their wisdom and remarkable powers. We begin with the translation and analysis of an esoteric manuscript, ‘The Golden Crown,’ a creation of the great Egyptian Master Kalika-Khenmetaten, who authored her masterpiece under the patronage of the majestic Kings Amenhotep III and Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten) over three-thousand-three-hundred years ago. Passages from Kalika’s manuscript clearly reveal the profound knowledge and wisdom of the great masters of distant ages: “Experience is the product of the mind—your conscious thoughts and images—propelled into being by feelings; this forms the reality that you experience. You are therefore not at the mercy of a reality that exists apart from yourself, or is thrust upon you.” —Kalika-Khenmetaten Explore the origins of the wisdom of the great masters through accounts of encounters and conversations the author and his companions had with individuals they believe to be the true Ri-iha-mo, the ‘mountain goddesses’ or ‘celestials’ that are legendary throughout the Himalayan regions of Nepal, Tibet, and beyond. These encounters, insofar as extensive research indicates, have no counterpart in available world literature. The underlying concepts are present in many profound literatures, both modern and ancient, but no descriptions of actual conversations with the Ri-iha-mo that reveal profound revelations about our Universe, our planet, and our true nature, revelations that can greatly assist in understanding our world, its history, and our role and power in creating precisely the life we desire. Such accounts may exist, but have apparently remained sealed, that is to say esoteric or arcane. An outstanding book for anyone interested in the wisdom of the Egyptian Masters, and especially valuable for anyone wishing to expand their own knowledge and personal power. Includes Reference Citations and a Source Material Anthology. A Kindle Unlimited Book. 2020 Edition, e-reader page count 330. For more information, please see the ‘Look Inside’ feature on the book’s Amazon page. Thank you.
