"It is with great sadness we announce that Laurence Gardner passed away on the 12 August 2010, after a prolonged illness.
"Laurence Gardner is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. Distinguished as the Chevalier de St. Germain, he is a constitutional historian, a Knight Templar of St Anthony, and is Presidential Attaché to the European Council of Princes. Based in England, he is author of The Times and Sunday Times bestseller, Bloodline of the Holy Grail.
"Laurence Gardner's (other) books include Realm of the Ring Lords, Genesis of the Grail Kings, Lost Secrets of the Sacred Ark, The Magdalene Legacy, and The Shadow of Solomon."
It was probably around six years ago that I first encountered Laurence Gardner's writings, after my friend Jon had been enthusing about Gardner's very different version of both Biblical and European history. So I read one of his books, Genesis of the Grail Kings, and found it echoed rumours which had been whispered in certain circles for not just decades but centuries. In this book, though, was a logical path of research which tried to verify speculation around this otherwise carefully hidden history of a line of descent which allegedly travels from the Anunnaki through to contemporary times.
"T" (Thomas Joseph Walton AKA West Cheshire Lad) denied that this passed through DNA. He insisted that the potential was dormant in the psyche (though you'd have to understand Tom's nomenclature to grasp his use of this word), and that certain family lines - and the orders founded and/or maintained by some of their members - protected not a literal, familial bloodline but the knowledge of how to awaken and develop that potential locked in the psyche.
Therefore, according to "T", a person need not be born into a particular family in order to inherit a certain potential, but to come into contact with another (or others) who carried the knowledge of how to awaken dormant aspects of the psyche.
