Biographical and Professional Information

Edward F. Malkowski has a lifelong interest in history, particularly ancient history with a special interest in philosophy and the development of religious beliefs from ancient to modern times. With the opinion that the ancient biblical stories in Genesis were based on historical fact, during the late 1990's he began investigating such a possibility which led to his first book ''Sons of God: Daughters of Men''. This led to a deep interest in the origin of civilization, the curiously large monuments of Egypt's Old Kingdom, particularly the Sphinx, and the influence Egyptian philosophy and culture exerted in the ancient world. Two more books were the result: ''Before The Pharaohs'' and ''The Spiritual Technology of Ancient Egypt''. Malkowski, whose professional background is finance and business administration, is also a software developer with interests in business strategy and philosophy as it relates to the advancement of technology.

Sons of God: Daughters of Men
ISBN: 0974395005

Bits of Sunshine Publishing Company. 2003

Sons of God – Daughters of Men is a history book written for a general audience. It inherits it’s title from the peculiar introduction to the story of Noah’s flood, in the 6th chapter of the biblical Genesis, where the "sons of God" saw that the daughters of men were beautiful and took them as wives. There, they are described as "heroes of old" and "men of renown", supposedly at a time when mankind was just created, eight generations before Noah.

This rather eerie reference to seemingly divine men has been, for myself, a continuous source of curiosity. If they were so famous, why then are there no other writings of their acts and deeds? And why were their offspring and descendents referred to as giants? Never having obtained a plausible answer from anyone, I contend that something significant happened a very long time ago. And whatever happened was hidden or lost during subsequent generations. The intriguing part is that traces of their existence made their way into the most popular book in the history of civilization.

Sons of God – Daughters of Men is about history and not theology, although it is difficult not to mention and discuss various theological ideas and trends. It is about setting aside any preconceived ideas and doctrinal notions, recovering the prehistory from the earliest chapters of Genesis, and placing them in their proper context. This book’s intent is to reveal the historical facts behind the stories.

There is abundant archeological evidence concerning the prehistory of man. And, although its interpretations are often debated among the scientists themselves, their factual basis is irrefutable. If the Bible, in general, is historically accurate, then it’s earliest stories must agree with the archeological and other historical sources. Human events in ancient history did not occur in a vacuum and therefore, are not without an historical context. Sons of God – Daughters of Men hunts through the pages of history in search of facts, in an attempt to establish Genesis as a far more believable and literal text than anyone’s wildest dreams.

Our search begins in 19th century America when settlers moving into the Ohio River Valley unearthed the remains of a forgotten civilization, a society where giants lived among men, and a culture that encompassed the vast, eastern territories of North America. For their posterity, numerous county histories and eventually the United States Geological Survey documented the events of this almost forgotten chapter in U.S. history.

We follow the historical evidence of giants back to ancient Israel and the legendary King David, to Joshua and the conquest of Canaan, then to Abraham and his flight from the Sumerian City of Ur

and finally to Noah, his great-grandfather, Enoch, and the antediluvian world of Genesis where a clash of cultures sparked the most famous fable of all. With scientific and historical evidence cast in complementary light we can see fact in myth, and reveal the truth behind Adam, Eve and the serpent in the Garden of Eden. We also discover the culture of long forgotten people, the true progenitors of civilization whose origins reach back 40,000 years.

Human culture has had a long history of conflict and order. Those who succeed tell their story, almost always as the only story. It is cliché, but true, history is written by the victor. Nations, societies, movements, and ideas that failed somewhere along the way are often depicted as inhuman or evil and in most cases were probably neither. Their vain struggle offers valuable insight into our past and own way of thinking. To truly understand the triumphant we must also understand the defeated.

Sons of God – Daughters of Men does not find its answers in angels, demons or extra-terrestrials, only history and the mountain of evidence produced through 150 years of archeology, anthropology and comparative mythology.

Before the Pharaohs: Egypt's Mysterious Prehistory
ISBN: 1591430488

Bear & Company. 2005

Presents conclusive evidence that ancient Egypt was originally the remnant of an earlier, highly sophisticated civilization

• Supports earlier speculations based on myth and esoteric sources with scientific proof from the fields of genetics, engineering, and geology

• Provides further proof of the connection between the Mayans and ancient Egyptians

• Links the mystery of Cro-Magnon man to the rise and fall of this ancient civilization

In the late nineteenth century, French explorer Augustus Le Plongeon, after years of research in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, concluded that the Mayan and Egyptian civilizations were related--as remnants of a once greater and highly sophisticated culture. The discoveries of modern researchers over the last two decades now support this once derided speculation with evidence revealing that the Sphinx is thousands of years older than Egyptologists have claimed, that the pyramids were not tombs but geomechanical power plants, and that the megaliths of the Nabta Playa reveal complex astronomical star maps that existed 4,000 years before conventional historians deemed such knowledge possible.

Much of the past support for prehistoric civilization has relied on esoteric traditions and mythic narrative. Using hard scientific evidence from the fields of archaeology, genetics, engineering, and geology, as well as sacred and religious texts, Malkowski shows that these mythic narratives are based on actual events and that a highly sophisticated civilization did once exist prior to those of Egypt and Sumer. Tying its cataclysmic fall to the mysterious disappearance of Cro-Magnon culture, Before the Pharaohs offers a compelling new view of humanity’s past.

The Spiritual Technology of Ancient Egypt: Sacred Science and the Mystery of Consciousness
ISBN: 1594771863

Inner Traditions. 2007

How ancient Egyptians understood quantum theory

• Investigates the history of how modern religion and the Age of Science were inspired by the sacred science of the ancients

• Examines how quantum theory explains that the cosmos arises from consciousness

• Reveals the unanimity between Schwaller de Lubicz’s “sacred science” and the science of a cosmos governed by quantum mechanics

Since the dawn of the Age of Science humankind has been engaged in a methodical quest to understand the cosmos. With the development of quantum mechanics, the notion that everything is solid matter is being replaced with the idea that information or “thought” may be the true source of physical reality.

Such scientific inquiry has led to a growing interest in the brain’s unique and mysterious ability to create perception, possibly through quantum interactions. Consciousness is now being considered as much a fundamental part of reality as the three dimensions we are so familiar with. Although this direction in scientific thought is seen as a new approach, the secret wisdom of the ancients presented just such a view thousands of years ago.

Building on René A. Schwaller de Lubicz’s systematic study of Luxor’s Temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu during the 1940s and ’50s, Edward Malkowski shows that the ancient Egyptians' worldview was not based on superstition or the invention of myth but was the result of direct observation using critical faculties attuned to the quantum manifestation of the universe. This understanding of reality as a product of human consciousness provided the inspiration for the sacred science of the ancients--precisely the philosophy modern science is embracing today. In the philosophical tradition of Schwaller de Lubicz, The Spiritual Technology of Ancient Egypt investigates the technical and religious legacy of ancient Egypt to reveal its congruence with today’s “New Science.”

Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE: The History, Technology, and Philosophy of Civilization X
ISBN: 1591431093

Bear & Company. 2010

A view into the sophisticated and highly advanced civilization that preceded the world of the pharaohs

• Presents historical evidence of the civilization ruled by the “gods” that the Egyptians claimed preceded their own

• Explains who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile River

Traditional Egyptologists have long resisted the notion that the architectural achievements of the Ancient Egyptians required the existence of a much more sophisticated technology than would have existed at that time. Yet, no records exist explaining how, why, or who built Egypt’s megalithic monuments and statues. The ancient Egyptians did, however, record that their civilization resided in the shadow of a kingdom of “gods” whose reign ended many thousands of years before their first dynasty. What was this Civilization X that antiquity’s most accomplished people revered as gods?

The recent discovery of a large stone at one of Egypt’s oldest ruins presents physical evidence that clearly and distinctly shows the markings of a machining process far beyond the capabilities of the Ancient Egyptians. Likewise, experimental modeling of the Great Pyramid’s subterranean chambers and passageways gives scientific evidence to further support the theory that the civilization responsible for such magnificent monuments is much older than presently believed. Ancient Egypt 39,000 BCE examines this evidence from historical and technical points of view, explaining who these prehistoric people were, what happened to them, why they built their civilization out of granite, and why they built a series of pyramids along the west bank of the Nile River.
