Philip Coppens, commentator on The History Channel’s Ancient Aliens: The Series, has died. Coppens was an author and investigative journalist best known for his work in the fields of ancient history and paranormal sciences.
Coppens regularly used his Twitter and Facebook accounts, though had done so less and less in recent weeks, primarily updating fans on his condition. “My fourth week in hospital is here today. Please keep praying for my recovery,” he wrote on December 22.
According to Coppens’ Facebook, he has been hospitalized in Los Angeles since November 25, and was diagnosed on December 13 with angiosarcoma, a rare cancer that is often fatal especially if it manifests in the liver.
On December 24, Coppens wrote: “My in-laws found me a copy of the British Museum crystal skull. His name is Vin. A lovely new companion,” on his Facebook, along with a photo which shows that he was still hospitalized at that time.
Coppens remained positive to the end, his final blog post on December 16 reflecting his characteristic thirst for arcane knowledge, gratitude to his loved ones, and his simple, overall philosophy regarding the meaning of life:
“Over the last few weeks, I have come to realize you have to be very specific about picking such mottos, for in my case, I remain convinced that this knowledge will indeed give me MY future. And insights into life, its value and especially its magical qualities, in the hope that with only a few days before December 21, people, through choice, will embrace a positive change in their life and travel onwards to the next level of their mission, which is the only reason why we have chosen to incarnate here on this lovely, blue water planet.” - Inquisitr
NOTE: On a personal note, Philip (or as he wrote Filip) never waivered when I would forward a inquiry to him. He was alway gracious and forthcoming. Though we never spoke, I was grateful for his insight. My condolences to his wife and family. Lon
