David Livingstone was born in Montreal Canada in 1966, and
except for a five year period when he lived in Africa, it was where he
spent most of his life. Beginning in 1987, he began studying towards a
Bachelors degree in Western Civilization, at the Liberal Arts College,
of Concordia University in Montreal. This college was an experimental
program that, instead of studying courses randomly in a given subject,
as in most other programs, over a period of three years, would
coordinate three courses simultaneously, in history, literature and
art, beginning with Homer and the Bible, following all the major
movements of Western Civilization, culminating in the twentieth century.
It was while reading the textbooks provided to him there that
he first encountered the curious reference to the emergence in ancient
times of the "Indo-European" people, the supposed ancestors of
modern-day Europeans, from the mountains of the Caucasus. It seemed to
him anomalous. Most of the other ancient civilizations had emerged
gradually and over long periods of time. No other peoples could be said
to have emerged so explosively and so violently, supposedly devastating
much of the known world at the time.
It was as he began to search out the evidence behind the
theory, which he discovered to be founded in an occult doctrine, that
revealed the existence of a hidden tradition in the West.
