Peter Canova, a student of esoteric knowledge for over 30 years, discussed the relationship between ancient wisdom and modern science. He spoke about the ancient mystery schools — a network of spiritual academies such as the Eleusinian school in Greece, the Pythagorean school in Italy, and the Druidic centers in the British Isles. “The purpose of these schools…was to preserve a sacred wisdom concerning the creation,
humanity’s origin, and the true nature of reality,” he noted.
Canova compared the ancient spiritual traditions to the new theories of quantum physics. Among the parallels: ancient wisdom said that light is the one energy of the universe and forms existence, quantum physics & relativity say that matter originates as light; ancient wisdom teaches that spirit projects itself into successive levels of consciousness to form the totality of reality, while string theory in physics indicates that parallel dimensions are formed in successive levels.
Peter Canova has written a trilogy entitled The First Souls, concerning the first awakening of spirit into materiality in the form of human consciousness. Pope Annalisa is the first book of the series.
At the age of twenty-three, he first realized his abilities concerning intuitive medical readings, remote viewing, psychokinesis, and other psychic phenomena. These abilities combined with several other talents qualified Peter to handle this project. He also has twenty-five years of voluminous research behind him in both mainstream and alternative religious studies, spiritual history, psychology, and quantum physics. Peter is a cum laude graduate of Brandeis University where he majored in political science. He spent several years in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, a background that greatly contributed to the vivid detail of peoples and cultures portrayed in Pope Annalisa.
