Their descendants prospered in isolation, colonizing both North and South America over the next 10 to 15 thousand years. With the lone exception of temporary Norse settlements at the end of the first millenium AD, these initial settlers had no contact with the Old World (Europe, Asia, Africa) until that fateful day in October 1492. Or so the story goes... Deliberate Intent sets out to prove that during the intervening period there was chronic contact, from a variety of sources, over huge expanses of time. While physical evidence (or lack thereof) is clearly important, it hardly represents the best proof. Rather a good part of Deliberate Intent sets about looking at how people separated by vast time and huge distances could develop remarkably similar ideologies and mythological frameworks. Is this something that Carl Jung referred to as the collective unconscious? A remembrance of an archaic system put in place tens of thousands of years ago? A reaction perhaps to the same observational stimuli? Or is it as the author contends, something else entirely?
