Dr. Thompson has done scientific research in quantum physics, mathematical biology, and remote sensing.

Review:

A contact with his [Richard Thompson's] work will revolutionize your view of the world and of human history. -- Dr. David Frawley, author of Yoga and Ayurveda, Gods, Sages and Kings etc.,

Gripping, scholarly and groundbreaking, Mysteries of the Sacred Universe deserves to be widely read and discussed. -- Robert Bauval, coauthor of The Orion Mystery

It seems clear that there are a number of references to known scientific aspects of the sky in the Bhagavatam. -- Jeanne E. Bishop, Planetarium Director, Westlake, Ohio

The CD-ROM gives the viewer an opportunity for interactive involvement in the process of understanding ancient cosmology. -- Dr. Gene Thursby, University of Florida

Thompson has made an important contribution by his Mysteries of the Sacred Universe. The CD is outstanding, the graphics, spellbinding. -- Dr. Subash Kak, Louisiana State Univ.

Thompson takes what is a truly groundbreaking work and makes it accessible to the reader. . . . I recommend this most highly. -- Bob Ledwidge, Editor of Living Traditions

[Those] who cannot accept that ancient peoples were less evolved versions of ourselves, find data and reasoning to the contrary. -- Dr. Howard Resnick, Ph.D.
