I read all of Shakespeare & love his plays! Seen them all, many a time, in many languages! Yet researching the most intriguing history of Elizabethan 16th, 17th century England & Royal Court Political Marketing I had to ask d obvious: Who wrote Shakespeare? #Shakespeare and Elizabethan England’s Royal Court Political Marketing. What do we really know about Shakespeare?#art, #Education, Power of #Mind, Learning from the Imperial Elizabethan England about mind-manipulation, and Shakespeare’s cultural heritage.
Was "the Stratford man" a front for a powerful literary group of writers that included the English contemporary writers, Bacon, and Marlowe, etc. used by the Queen Elizabeth and her predecessors for their political marketing, and why does this matter today?
No letters or signed manuscripts written by Shakespeare survive. The appearance of Shakespeare's six authenticated signatures, indicate that he was illiterate or barely literate.
So when you read Lady Macbeth’s “Come, you spirits / That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here,” during your 10th grade English class, or: “Make thick my blood, Stop up th’ access and passage to remorse.” do you ever wonder, is this how it was originally written?
Shakespeare's authorship was first questioned in the middle of the 19th century by Joseph C. Hart in “The Romance of Yachting” (1848). Hart argued that the plays were written by many different authors. Shakespeare has never overseen the publication of his plays in his retirement. So controversial, by 1884, the question had produced more than 250 books.

The novel is divided into two parts, both of which are narrated by Ivana Šeravac when she is retired and living alone, and by the Author. The first part begins in the 1980s with the meeting of Ivana and David, on a train journey to a famous Montenegro’s monastery Ostrog, of whom three feature in the remainder of the story: Author, as the narrator, David Archer, and Ivana, who is doing her life-long research in sound and the development of alphabets. The two discuss the philosophical background of two major Ancient Europe’s thought forms – liberals and conservatives, democratic and monarchy-ruled, Greek-links and Romans, Slavic and Germanic. David has a Phd from the Cambridge University and Ivana stays a mum, determined not to let go of her research passion.
At this point Nataša's narration of the second part of the novel – which is twice as long as the first – begins, it is a historical journey through sounds, followed by the "classical antiquity" with the Hellenistic, Eastern European history in the Ancient Mediterranean, from the beginning of recorded Ancient Greek history in 776 BC. This roughly coincides with the Golden period in Ancient Greece in Balkan. Following the development of the languages researching the Ancient Egyptian Rosetta Stone, the Ancient Homeric Ionic Greek, Nataša uses the Slavic Cyrillic script to map the oldest Phoenician Alphabet to the European development of languages.
Metaphysic of Sound: In search of the Name of God, or A Brief History of the World beyond the Usual by Nataša Pantović Novel Released in Jan 2021.
Join Nataša Pantović, Maltese and Serbian researcher of ancient worlds, on a mind-boggling tour of history and sounds - from the Ancient Sumerian Priestess Sin Liturgy right up to the development of Ancient Greek and Cyrillic alphabet.
Metaphysics of Sound: In Search of Name of God, or a Brief History of the World beyond the Usual Nataša Pantović
Join Nataša Pantović, Maltese and Serbian researcher of ancient worlds, on a mind-boggling tour of history and sounds - from the Ancient Sumerian Priestess Sin Liturgy right up to the development of Ancient Greek and Cyrillic alphabet.
This new novel contains a dialogue between two European cultures, Roman and Greek from an Ancient Slavic perspective, an intimate encounter of Balkan, its history and culture, a glimpse into the evolution of Ancient Egyptian’s, Ancient Maltese, Ancient Greek - Ionic and Slavic sounds.
A Brief History of the world Beyond the Usual (the subtitle of the book) contains the historical overview of the development of people, sounds and symbols as frequencies.
The author tells us why the ancient Slavic culture in Balkan had difficulty in expressing its origins, how did Sumerian cuneiform script influence the world of thought, and how did the Babylonian Amarna letters bring the revolution of consciousness. How does “B” of the Slavic name for “Bog”, “God”, connects the two distant relatives - Phoenicians and Europeans?
Traveling in time through the Ancient Maltese Temples (2,500 BC), to Maltese Ancient Greeks (600 BC), Minoan Crete, Sicily, and witnessing a Mycenaean Ancient Greek cultural explosion, reading this historical fiction, we witness the subconscious imprint within the development of the alphabet of various nations. This is a brief history of the world beyond the usual.

Discoveries just beginning. The 140 painted wooden sarcophagi and gilded statues unearthed in Saqqara are just the beginning, says Egypt's Minister of Antiquities: "Whenever we empty a burial shaft of sarcophagi we find an entrance to another."
It is almost a miracle how intact these mummies are! Egypt unveiled on Saturday November 14, a hundred sarcophagi over 2,000 years old in perfect condition, discovered south of Cairo, the largest "treasure" unearthed in the country since the beginning of this year.
The hundred fourth sarcophagi were discovered in three funeral pits, 12 meters deep. "The excavations are still in progress. As soon as we empty a funeral shaft with sarcophagi, we discover another", added the Minister Khaled el-Enani.
Writing was believed to have been given to humanity by the Egyptian god Thoth Thōth (Θώθ). Thoth, lord of ritual and of words, is an Egyptian god who gave us writing. Plato mentions Thoth in his dialogue Phaedrus. He says writing is a wonderful substitute for memory, yet it will cause that the future generations will hear much without being properly taught, and will appear wise but not be so. Thoth gave us the ancient Egyptian symbols wisdom of the frequency of the 22 letters and sounds, possibly through the mystical learnings passed through the centuries through the Tarot cards and Kabbala’s Tree of Life.
Another Thoth, the Ancient Egyptian King Tut-ankh-amun and his carved letters, left a deep cultural and scientific impact on the history of European / Arabic writing. His carved letters / books are today known as Amarna Letters and speak of writing as a skill much before 1,400 BC.
As Egyptian and Ancient Greeks, καθαρός recognised that an Omnipotent indescribable God manifests in male and female divine forces. The female aspect of God is Sophia, “wisdom”. As Pythagoreans, or the founders of Orphism, they believed in Metempsychosis (Reincarnation) – a soul is reborn until it renounces the world. Cosmic Duality with its Chinese Taoist Yin and Yang forces, that are in a constant opposition, is in the centre of their teachings. The purpose of life is re-union with god.
Europe has passed through a process known in history as “Romanization” that changed indigenous populations, including Roman speech, Roman religion... The historical moment of the Roman conquest has profoundly structured the interpretation of the archaeological remains dating to between 200 BC and 300 AC.
Moving deeper into the past, archaeological remains provide evidence for existence of Ancient Europe pre Christ, with major ethnic groups, such as the Germans, the Slavs and the Celts, in prehistory. In Europe, the ancestral remains of various European peoples, help us distinguish between ‘Dorian culture’, ‘Mycenian culture’, ‘Danubian culture’ observing the beauty of the European mixed heritage.
The archaeology of countries where European powers have implemented various forms of institutionalized dominion for considerable periods of time, struggle to identify “own” history: Malta with its Ancient Temples Culture after the Knights, the UK in Ireland, Germany and Turkey in Balkans, both Irish and Slavs are still finding their rightful space in Ancient Europe’s history.
The "imperialist" archaeologies, for instance, deny of any ongoing relationship between living Australian Aborigines and their past which is defined as ‘prehistoric’ and ‘dead’. Israeli archaeology pre Christ is often classified as nationalist. A complex relationship between history, religion, archaeology and the construction of particular cultural identities is often confusing.
Slavs were slaves in Europe, and as such have been traditionally historically identified with Germans, or with Barbarians, even though a Slavic DNA story will tell you a different story of Balkans, that in its mountains, hid first Slavs (Sclaveni) that inhabited Europe. We try to trace them by names.
Giving the full respect to our scientists, it is the fact that the “European”, as “Latin” and North American culture history has been ‘exported’ around the world. It is the basis of our historians’ current mind-sets. The original texts in Ancient Greek about gods narrate most interesting new stories.
Internal cultural change and innovation has always been a slow and gradual process amongst most cultural groups. Back in time, 4,000 years, some of the major city centres were leaders of innovation and change. This was RARE in history, so coming across the giants like Babylon, or Ancient Egyptian Cairo, or Ancient Greek Athene, or Ancient Cyprus, or Ancient Malta, or ancient Danube culture, where a cultural group settled for 1,000+ years has created miracles, where writing, science, sports and art flourished, creating pockets of knowledge about micro and macro cosmos, later to be explored during the Age of Enlightenment, and now, post electricity, 4,000 years later, by us, consciousness researchers who wish to dig deeper.
The Ancient Greek historian Nikolas or Nicolaus of Damascus (Greek: Νικόλαος Δαμασκηνός) was a historian and philosopher with a Slavic name who lived during the Augustan age of the so-called Roman Empire. He was born in 64 BC.
He was an intimate friend of Herod the Great (Cezar). According to Sophronius, he was also the tutor of the children of Mark Antony and Cleopatra. He was commissioned for his work. He wrote a universal history in 144 books. His work was mainly lost. Extensive fragments of the first seven books are preserved, these cover the history of the Assyrians, Medes, Greeks, Lydians, and Persians.
The Book 4 of his History was on A-bra-Ham (the monotheism, the Monad), so the historians have named him “a Jew”. However, he has done a work called “On the Psyche”, so he could have also been a Pythagorean or Platonist.
Nikolai writes the name of Cezar, in Ancient Homerian Greek as “Καῖσαρ” “Καίσαρος”, “Καίσαρι” sounding as: Kai Caros (meaning in Slavic "kao Car", or "as the King", the Slavic supreme ruler is “Car”) “Καίσαρ” became in Latin "Cezar".
"Caesar had by this time completed the wars in Europe, had conquered Pompeius in Macedonia, had taken Egypt, had returned from Syria and the Euxine Sea, and was intending to advance in to Africa."
"Caesar wished Octavius (the next Caesar) to have the experience of directing the exhibition of theatrical productions (for there were two theatres, the one Roman, over which he himself had charge, and the other Greek). This he turned over to the care of Octavius."
"He fell, under many wounds, before the statue of Pompeius, and there was not one of them but struck him as he lay lifeless, to show that each of them had had a share in the deed, until he had received thirty-five wounds, and breathed his last."
“There was a crowd, too, in the theatre, which got up and rushed out in disorder (there happened to be a gladiatorial exhibition in progress) knowing nothing definite of what had happened but frightened by the shouting all about them. Some said that the Senate was being slaughtered by gladiators, others that Caesar had been murdered and that his army had started to pillage the city; some got one impression, others another.”
"...carrying their swords bare and shouting that they had acted in behalf of common freedom. A great crowd of gladiators and slaves, who had been prepared for the purpose, followed them. There was much running in the streets and through the forum, now that the news that Caesar had been murdered became known to the throng. The city looked as if it had been occupied by an enemy.”
“Even the city treasury, which his father had filled with funds, they had emptied within two months after Caesar's death, wasting money in large lots on any excuse that offered in the general confusion; and furthermore they were on good terms with the assassins. So Octavianus was the only one left to avenge his father, for Antonius let the whole matter pass, and was even in favour of an amnesty for the assassins.”
He is the first one to narrate of a sramana (a Gypsy from India) who burnt himself alive in Athens to demonstrate his faith. A tomb was made to the sramana, still visible in the time of Plutarch, with an inscription "ΖΑΡΜΑΝΟΧΗΓΑΣ ΙΝΔΟΣ ΑΠΟ ΒΑΡΓΟΣΗΣ" (In Slavic: Za roman Čergaš, Indos apo Vargoeše), for a Gypsy (RamaN) from Xegas (Chergash), an Indian from Vargosha. Interestingly, in Serbia, we still call all the gypsis Chergaši...
“Eight naked servants, with girdles round their waists, and fragrant with perfumes, presented the gifts which were brought. The presents were a Hermes (i. e. a man) born without arms, whom I have seen, large snakes, a serpent ten cubits in length, a river tortoise of three cubits in length, and a partridge larger than a vulture. They were accompanied by the person, it is said, who burnt himself to death at Athens. This is the practice with persons in distress. On his tomb was this inscription: ΖΑΡΜΑΝΟΧΗΓΑΣ ΙΝΔΟΣ ΑΠΟ ΒΑΡΓΟΣΗΣ
ZA-RMANO-CHEGASH,, for a “Roman”, “Gypsy” Chergash, an Indian, a native of Vargosha.
An enormous amount of knowledge passed to us, researchers of Babylon, through the most ancient carved in stone Akkadian letters about the names of Kings, countries, religions, numbers.

Nataša Pantović: ‘I meditate in an attempt to recall my dreams’ Maltese-Serbian novelist Nataša Pantović tells all in our Q&A 9 September 2020, 8:00am by Laura Calleja
Nataša Pantović is a Maltese-Serbian novelist, management consultant, adoptive parent, and ‘ancient worlds explorer’ based in Malta. Ama: Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras and other books by Pantović are published by Artof4Elements can be purchased on Amazon.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Meditate in an attempt to recall my dreams. A dream diary is the most beautiful technique I’ve learned from Jung – he understood dreams to be messages from the unconscious, and through his own self-analysis, containing imagery that illustrates our internal soul “messaging” system.
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
My dad, who had a PhD in law, used to discuss ancient philosophers with me, introducing me to Aristotle’s ‘eudaimonia’ - the “long-term happiness” that achieved throughout a lifetime when human beings achieve health, wealth, knowledge, friends and this in turn leads to the perfection of human nature... What do you never leave the house without? A book or a note-book...
Pick three words that describe yourself “Arche”, “Logos”, and “Harmonia”.
What do you consider to be your greatest achievement? I could morph into a dolphin…
What is your guiltiest pleasure? Reading the Babylon stories written in 2,500 BC. Researching Ancient Greek, Chinese and Egyptian characters or Akkadian that symbolically narrate the stories of advanced civilizations of 2,500 BC. Discovering “real” history or how I call it “playing the glass bead game with Pythagoras”.
What is the most important lesson life has taught you? I “jumped” into the role of parenting, adopting as a single mother, two instead of one kid (as originally planned) even though I had no husband to support me within this journey. The madness of my little “mission” left me at home, babysitting and writing books, one after the other, since my creative flow kept overpowering me. Life is FLOW!
Property and cars aside what’s the most expensive thing you’ve ever bought?
Leonardo da Vinci’s A3 size Complete Book of Art. What is one thing you wish you knew when you were younger? Music, one thing I did not get as a gift from my parents. Perhaps I will be reborn as a musician.
Who’s your inspiration? Giordano Bruno, Herman Hesse, and Tolstoy.
What has been your biggest challenge? Original thinking. Any author’s dream is to be able to play the audience like a conductor does an orchestra. Take it onto a journey.
If you weren’t an ‘Ancient Worlds Consciousness Researcher’ what would you be doing?
I have already hugged a 3,000-years-old Maori tree in New Zealand and crossed the Savanah on foot and slept in the deserts of Africa, and climbed the hills of Nepal, danced barefoot under starry nights… so not researching, assuming the kids are no longer in need of my support, would probably take me back to exploring Serbian hills...
Do you believe in God? As a dynamic, Orphic, hermaphrodite Universe of Consciousness, Yin and Yang manifestations... then yes.
If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would it be? The full cast of Ama, my fiction book: the bat, who is also a story-teller, Pythagoras, who I (as a writer) meet jumping through a universal consciousness portal, Ama, the Kenyan goddess who meets the philosophers in her coffee house, Father Benedict, an Orthodox priest, her father Ottavio who is an alchemist… wow, what a party!
What’s your worst habit?
Never ending my stories. I was re-writing A-Ma for long 10 years. The issue of white supremacy, the institutional racism, female vs. male conflict, the East vs. West struggle, the Yin vs. Yang or Dogs vs. Cats, it is a story repeated over and over again. If you are a reader, you probably get one masterpiece a year, a book that is a must read, and as an educated audience, you are deeply grateful to be holding this type of a book in your hands, but it still does not change your life. How many books have changed your life? Will a book be read in 30 years? Will my book be read in 30 years?
What are you like when you’re drunk?
I have never ever been drunk. Can you believe this? I also do not take any medication...
Who would you have play you in a film?
I wouldn’t have me “played” in a film. But I would have my daughter play Ama...
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Conscious and sub-conscious abuse of one’s own body or mind or emotions... I feel deep sorrow when people abuse the gift of life.
What music would you have played at your funeral? Jamming jazz by all participants.
What is your most treasured material possession? Tobby, my cat, even though she “owns” us, not the other way round.
What is your earliest memory? Taking a teddy bear to the hospital in Belgrade, Serbia, that was closed for visits, to my sister who was operated and was gone from my life, for more than three months. I recall, at the age of 3, running under the nursing sister’s legs to give her the bear.
When did you last cry, and why? I cry at all times. My friend Karl Pace has just died of burning injuries, his boat set on fire...
Who would you most like to meet? Quentin Tarantino.
What’s your favorite food? As a vegetarian, a veggie meal from Krishna or a mix of forest berries from Serbia.
Who’s your favorite person on social media right now? I’m old-school. I read the newspaper. I still watch movies in the cinema, I buy the front row tickets. When I write a poem, or a story, I do not do it on a computer… all these handsome actors trying to act tortured, trying to look miserable. The life that is not real, does not appeal to me. So, no social media for me. Thanks, but no thanks...
If you could travel in time, where would you go? Ancient Malta’s Temple culture, and the time of Serbian Vinca so that I could compare the two.
What book are you reading right now? Babylonian Life and History by Ernest Alfred Wallis Budge (1884). Together with Lingua Maltese Studio Storico Etnografico e Filolgico by Caruana, published in 1896 in Italian. The latter, I have had the honour of holding it in my hands.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Travel through time.
What’s one thing you want to do before you die? Spend two months in Peru.
What music are you listening to at the moment? A soundtrack from Emir Kusturica’s film “Arizona Dream” by Goran Bregovic.
In the shower or when you’re working out, what do you sing/listen to? Mantras of all religions like Kirya Si, Shiva Shakti, Halleluya, AuM allaH, my kids hate me for it... the neighbours are convinced that I am a Muslim, or a Jew, or a Hindu, or a Christian in a dire need of some psychiatric help. Sometimes the kids, passers-by or dogs sing with me.
Totally excited! ❤ Massive THANK YOU to MaltaToday & Laura Calleja for giving us this wonderful double spread Q&A interview. A journalist Laura Calleja from MaltaToday has contacted me and they wished to feature my book #Ama or Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras within their weekly Q&A. The #interview just came out this Sunday 6th September (print and paid digital) Thx to my kids Ema Pantovic and Andrej Pantovic for buying the newspapers, like in old pre-Covid days
