Excellent illumination of the 24,000 year cosmic cycle

Congratulations to the authors and film-maker for providing a concise and moving account of the "myth" of the 24,000 year cosmic cycle. The graphics were fantastic, the scholars were convincing, and the entire production was solid. I hope there is an expanded version of this film in the works - it really whet our appetite for knowledge of the reality of the physical universe and it's cyclical interplay with consciousness. We would especially enjoy more information about the binary star theory, and scientific advances that support that ancient "truth". A tie-in to past civilizations such as Atlantis and Lemuria would be intriguing. Thanks again to the authors and the film-maker for a great documentary.
