The mission of CPAK 2005 is to develop a true dialog among experts in a wide range of fields to illuminate the ties between ancient cultures, mythology, and our ancestral knowledge of the stars. The conference will explore new evidence for a cyclical theory of civilization (tied to the Precession of the Equinox) and its possible causes, and highlight archaeological, mythological and astronomical support for the theory.
Prominent scientists, researchers and experts will look at novel theories to explain the rise and fall of civilizations over a vast cycle of time, including the motion of heavenly bodies; change in the cosmic environment, and possible geological and impact events.
For the first time in the conference's history, CPAK 2005 will include a day of public programs to share these collaborations with the general public and astronomy and ancient history students, teachers, scientists and science writers. Private round table discussions and presentations among the experts will continue to be the hallmark of the conference.
Much attention will be given to the Precession of the Equinox, its ancient meaning and new updates to the modern theory and cause of the Earth's constant reorientation to space.

Why do so many ancient civilizations display evidence of higher culture and what are the latest findings?
