Guest Post: Jos Rogiers (Editor of Message From A Hidden Past)

An Unexpected Parcel
(By Jos Rogiers, editor of Message from a Hidden Past)

In the beginning of November 2011, on a rainy morning, I was surprised to find an unexpected parcel in my mailbox. It contained a number of handwritten pages, the work of a gentleman unknown to me, a learned dwarf, apparently, who wished to remain anonymous. In an enclosed note, he kindly requested that I edit the manuscript and have it published. I decided to comply with his request, because the content of this book was so amazing that I felt it necessary to make it widely known. Indeed, this text traces nothing less than the history of a vanished species of hominids—who apparently once ruled over the world—and their predicted return sometime in the future. Now, if that is not amazing, I do not know what is. (Please, see the synopsis of the book)

I have left the dwarf’s text as it was—unaltered, but for some writing and language errors—thinking it wise to respect the author’s somewhat peculiar English, a language which he managed to acquire a fairly good knowledge of in a relatively short time. The old-fashioned chapter headings flowed out of the dwarf’s pen, and I did not touch them. The writer forgot to create a title for his book, and therefore I had to invent one myself. I chose “Message from a Hidden Past.” For the rest, I thought that it would be useful and clarifying to add some maps and endnotes to the text, and to complete it with a cover which I felt would be appropriate.

Why the dwarf asked me, a Dutch-speaking Belgian, to edit and publish his book, written in English, which is not my mother tongue, is another question. In any case, whatever the dwarf’s motives were to pick me out, he saddled me with a hell of a job! I can tell you that my English dictionary is well-thumbed now and all dog-eared, while my English grammar is almost falling apart.

Neither the author nor the editor being a native speaker, the reader should not expect the language of the book to be Standard English. But let this not prevent him or her from reading this baffling story, which, indeed, throws a completely new light on the human existence, on our history and future.

An amazing book, wherein an ancient dwarf sheds
a revolutionary new light on our history & future

Look Inside on


More than 3,200 years ago, a learned dwarf was pricked with the Sleeping Thorn and fell into a deep slumber in a secret cave somewhere on Earth. When he finally awoke, towards the end of 2009 or in the early part of 2010, he started to carry out the task he was charged with by his king: to reveal the truth about a hidden chapter of our past, that misunderstood period of our history when the so-called “gods” held sway over the world. He wrote an amazing book about this subject, a book that throws a completely new light on world history and human existence: "Message from a Hidden Past." According to the author, the gods were neither supernatural beings nor products of the human imagination, let alone extraterrestrials. He describes them as hominids of flesh and blood, belonging to the further evolved species of Homo supersapiens. They were smarter, taller, and much more beautiful than humans. They were the true founders of civilization. The book explains their origins, describes their culture, and pictures the land in which they lived. Most revealing, it relates how the gods became involved with humans and the disastrous consequences of that fateful interaction. The dwarf recounts the story of a great world war that took place at the end of the Bronze Age and of an epic calamity that finally extinguished the Era of the Gods. Despite their physical destruction, the lore and images of the gods lived on in poetry, song, and myth. The book’s last chapters deal with what remains of them today, and discuss ancient prophecies that foretell their return at an uncertain date in the future.
