He has studied the 15,000 photographs that he has taken on his trips to Egypt, gaining many insights and revelations over time. Electric Ancient Egyptians has more than 460 images, mostly in color, that illustrate his points. Often, he refers to these pictures as “smoking guns.” Brown offers interpretations for objects that he believes have been incorrectly identified. The reader will come away from this book with a new understanding of the knowledge and uses of electricity possessed by the ancient Egyptians, including their knowledge of electricity for energetic healing. it is the author’s hope that the rediscovery of this ancient information will help modern people regain a knowledge of free and non-polluting energy.
