“Robert K. G. Temple, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society of England... claimed that Earth had been visited by an advanced race from a planet in the system of the double star, Sirius, around 4500 B.C. Temple based this assertion on the fact that definite and specific knowledge of the Sirius system can be found in the mythology of the Babylonians, the Egyptians, and some surviving African tribes - knowledge which modern astronomy has only rediscovered with the fantastically delicate instruments of the last two decades...
Oh, Temple's data arent all new, Saul Paul said. Anthropologists have known for years that several African tribes have very advanced knowledge about the Sirius system. For instance, they knew about the companion of Sirius - a dwarf star - long before we discovered it with our telescopes.
And how do the anthropologists explain that? I asked.
They don't, Saul Paul said with a Groucho Marx grin. It's regarded as a mystery. ”Robert Anton Wilson, “Cosmic Trigger”, And/Or Press, 1977, p10
