Alfred de Grazia. Wow. A life lived. Perhaps enough of a life for many people combined. Not much Alfred didn't do and if de Grazia didn't do it was it worth doing?
He wrote or published a massive amount of works and books on all types of subjects. His most important works interlinking with proto Electric Universe theory is his quantavolution series and also The Velikovsky Affair. Grazia is certainly now not accepted Thunderbolts canon but he gives new insights into lots of interesting things.
Quantavolution theory maintains that the world from its beginnings, including the world of life and humanity, has changed largely by quantum leaps, rather than by tiny increments over great stretches of time.
The theory of Quantavolution deals with the behavior of substances of the real world so far as one can sense them. It proposes that change in nature and life occur largely as the result of catastrophic events; the events originate in the skies, which contain forces that are immeasurably greater than any in man or Earth and that are especially electrical.
... Furthermore, the universal belief of ancient cultures and legends, that the gods were born, and were members of the same family, would begin to stir our interest.
In many cultures, there is said to have been an original chaos or world vapor and a catastrophic event from which the father of the gods was born and from him (or her) was born the succession of gods. Why "born" instead of having always been in existence?

One book that sums up his mind expanding and no limits but logical thinking is God's Fire: Moses and the management of Exodus.
Alfred de Grazia became a friend of Immanuel Velikovsky, as well as many many others.

His lifelong strong libido had its generous components of eat (omnivorously), drink (water, juices, single malt scotch, martinis, and red wine), sexuality (with fidelity running far ahead of libertinism, and one partner for the last third of life), making merry (its temptations pacified easily and suborned to solitary research and writing), and a boundless ambition to advise everyone and also the world on how to achieve perfection.
He has been a participant and close observer in various significant scenarios of three generations, as he moved in a complex variegated congeries of social and family circles in America and abroad. He developed a type of pragmatism and phenomenology that he conveyed into many aspects of social and natural science, and into history and the humanities. He used the sociology of knowledge to dissect the forms of political representation. He introduced innovations into psychological warfare.
Beginning in the 1960's his interests turned increasingly toward the problems of neo catastrophism, following the publication by him of a widely praised but controversial book upon scientific censorship, The Velikovsky Affair: Scientism against Science. In this work, he applied the behavior of scientists as observed to the concept of the Reception System of Science.

De Grazia developed his own version of Velikovsky's theories, which he called "quantavolution" to denote his holistic theory of sudden, leaping, large scale changes as the major factor in natural history, evolution, and human development.
By 1985 he had published ten volumes of the Quantavolution Series; they deal with subjects as diverse as the Odyssey of Homer (The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars) and the history of the Solar System seen as a binary electro magnetic transaction. Two volumes deal with the evolution of mankind (Homo Schizo I) and human nature today (Homo Schizo II); in these he proposes a short time instinct-delay theory of humanization, and linguistic-cultural hologenesis.
Also in this series are The Lately Tortured Earth, which is a proposed revision of the conventional earth sciences; God's Fire: Moses and the Management of Exodus, which interprets the Exodus in the light of modern science and psychiatry, offering a new theology and new considerations on the existence of gods; The Burning of Troy, a collection of special studies and memoranda and Chaos and Creation, first to be written, which presents the general theory of Quantavolution. Possibly the most widely read book in the series is Cosmic Heretics.
His Solaria Binaria Theory originates the solar system from a nova of the Sun and a stretched, lessening electric arc to a binary, now practically disappeared, around which the planets evolved.
His theory of "Lunagenesis" derives the Moon from the Earth in recent times in response to a passing binary fragment ("Uranus Minor"), and explains continental drifting, not by tectonic plate theory, but as a rafting of the remaining Pangea toward the great vacated basin, along the fracture lines of the globe occasioned at the moment of passage.

Similar to Immanuel Velikovsky, de Grazia is a polymath with a diverse background, offering a valuable cross-discipline synthesis of ancient history. Many of his works are built on the early research of Velikovsky, and are valuable because he has both corrected and enhanced certain topics that need further public airing.
Of all the authors contributing to the theme of humanity’s amnesia, de Grazia is the most convincing in his understanding.

De Grazia not only provided combat leadership in the burgeoning field of tactical PSYWAR in WWII, but helped understand outside understanding of PSYWAR thorough research and writing. ... He wrote Targeting Elites, a working manual for the CIA. In Vietnam he tried without success to convert a war of devastation into a welfare war.
He created an experimental college in the Swiss Alps, near Sion, in Valais, the Université du Nouveau Monde - University of the New World. This experiment represented the peak of his action for advancing a new political order, and consumated his break with the establishment, scientific, aademic and political. The experiment itself was a resounding failure, for numerous reasons, but most of all, it was it was doomed by a devastating reevaluation of the Swiss Franc in 1970, which made the experiment financially untenable.
One month to the day after his death, incredibly, it became known that traces of Neanderthal settlements, putting into question all accepted theories about the spread of Neanderthal populations in the Middle-East and in Europe, had been discovered around his cottage, on his beloved Stelida Mountain, on his very property on the island of Naxos, in Greece... Even traces of Homo erectus were found... His promontory of Stelida had been, for reason still unknown, a magnet for hominid settlements in the Eastern Mediterranean...
