Ranjith Ramanathan asked the Naked Scientists:
   Someone has proposed that people in the past could have been giants. Even 90 foot high!
They were saying that this is due to expanding earth theory and that in times gone passed, the earliest people were giants and can also explain that's why dinosaurs were so big.
I think it's all nonsense, but is there even a grain of truth in it?
What do you think?

definitely nonsense, including the expanding Earth theory

There are suggestions that perhaps the Greek myths of the titans may have been prompted by fossils of ancient megafauna.

Giants of the past were a projection of changes that were occurring in the human psyche during ancient times. The modern human has two centers of consciousness. The primary center is called the inner self, which is the center of the unconscious mind. Both animals and humans have the primary center. This is the source of natural instinct. Modern humans are unique in that we also have a secondary center, called the ego, which is the center of the conscious mind. The second center is the reason humans have lost connection to natural instinct.

A simple experiment to observe this distinction is to go to the woods/forest at night and spend the night without a fire or flashlight. What will happen, is the imagination will become active. One may find it hard to sleep, because one will think they sense wild animals; lions, tiger and bears, oh my, due to the sounds and shadows in the night. In this experiment the observer; secondary, will observe a projection overlay, coming from the primary, that may be felt as an uneasiness to that which is not there, but which is being projected into the imagination.

The secondary is a relatively new addition to the human psyche. The secondary was not always, there, but consolidated in the more recent past; start of civilization. The secondary is the source of choice and will; relative to instincts; primary. The ancient giants, such as the Titans, occurred at a time when the secondary was coming into phase. The projections, proportions and abilities of the primary, relative to the budding secondary, would be interpreted as its godlike and giant in nature, compared to to the puny human secondary who was fragile. The secondary was fragile and could be swallowed up. Even if one could resist the first waves of primary projection, they would escalate and get you; release the Kraken. The secondary was like a weak radio station, subject to drift and static; loss of soul.

The Titans are defeated by a half god and half human character, and replaced with normal sized gods; Zeus and the gods of Olympia. This is symbolic of an inspired human invention. The changing of the god guard, occurs when the secondary had gained sufficient potential to appear more in proportion; higher stability. However, the gods; primary, were still seen as having the upper hand, which is still the case, since the primary make sure of the main frame parts of the brain. The secondary is a terminal.

The expanding earth is symbolic of this same situation. The earth is symbolic of the secondary, which revolves around the sun; primary. The primary is the giver of light and life. The earth does not control the fate of the sun, unless you think the earth is the center. The giants appear during the early expansion stage; growth stage as the secondary radio signal strengthens. When the secondary consolidates, the Titans are defeated and replaced with gods who are more approachable, with some helping to teach the secondary how to evolve further, via projection.

For example, the goddess of love, would have originally projected her nature from the primary, to the secondary of a key person; dream. This becomes the template by which the humans of that culture, would develop this aspect of the secondary. Also exercises would be developed to trigger the primary; appeal to the goddess. This would be better than viagra. One becomes driven by the main frame. Just as there were evil gods and goddesses, so even cruelty would become driven by the mainframe.

The inspired invention; half god and half man, that appears to have allowed the secondary to consolidate, was the invention of writing, which occurs when human civilization, sticks. The importance of this invention can be seen with an example.

Say you go to a lecture at school, but you are not allowed to use books or write anything down; simulating pre-writing times. The whole class may hear what the professor says. However, in a short time, each person will start to recall the lecture in different ways, with details forgotten almost immediately, by each.

Once you get to use books and can write things down, even if this natural memory drift begins to occur, there is a way to review the original material, without politics; might, or con, deciding what was said. One natural work around that early cultures had, were autistic people, with eidetic memory, who could be counted on to refresh the community memory. He/she would be fragile and childlike and could be trusted by the group, more than might or the con. The autistic were reliable memory storage for memories and unique tasks. They would be of high demand in early budding culture before they were replaced more and more by writing.

The invention of the alphabet and writing created a large scale way to record memory, in stone, to create a constant memory grid for all. The autistic were still used, but writing became a way for key cultural memories to outlive any human life; immortal. If the mind began to drift and people began to recall the past before their own lives, differently; revisionist history, the sacred writing could refresh the group with the original intent. This helped the ego to consolidate, since there was a way to moor oneself against drift; projection, over many generations.
