Gnosticism and Mysticism

The Ancient Egyptians. The Great Pyramid is full of esoteric pointers, notably in the measurements of the Pyramid, and the use of Pi. Also the recent findings of the relationship of Giza and the River Nile as a mirror of the Milky Way, etc.

The Ancient Middle and South Americans. Though the Spanish found a number of long-depraved societies, their ancient forebears (through more recent analysis) have shown indications of much deeper thought. These indicators include the use of a calendar and eras of time that bear comparison with the Hindu yugas.

The Pythagoreans - who may well have had links with the Hindus (Brahmins) and Celts, and studied Ancient Egyptian sciences.

The Rosicrucians.

The Kabbalah - A Judaic creation, and concerned with a pattern by which man may grow spiritually by action on himself. In some ways akin to the sciences of Buddhism, in my opinion.

A Mysticism Index, which also links to the phenomenal Mystics' Who's-Who. See also the Mysticism in World Religions site.
