Colony Earth: Science in The Vedas - Part 1
In my view, 6000 years ago the peoples of India either were far more advanced than NASA and then somehow mysteriously forgot — or the Mahabharata is the history of and evidence for an off-world civilization that did colonize this planet.
“History is the one weak point of Sanskrit literature, being practically non-existent. Not a single systematic chronological record has survived. And so complete is the lack of any data to guide us in this matter that the dates of even the most famous of Indian authors like Panini [the grammarian] and Kaidasa [Sanskrit poet & dramatist] are still subject to controversy.”
Quoted from the introduction by Lakshman Sarup to ‘The Nighantu and The Nirukta of Sri Yaskcarya, The Oldest Indian Treatise on Etymology, Philology and Semantics.’
The above quotation is taken from a highly esteemed important book said to be the cornerstone of any valid translations of Vedic Sanskrit. The Nighantus are the glossaries or lists of rare and obscure words occurring in the Vedic hymns. In his book on ‘Vedic Physics’ K.D. Verma states, “Without recourse to Nirukta of Yaska no claim to the study of Veda is sustainable.”
Thus from respected Indian scholars we learn that the Sanskrit literature itself does not provide “a single chronological record” and therefore the dates are subject to controversy. Even the end of the Kali Yuga is disputed, although India does accept 3102 BCE as the beginning of our current Cycle of Time. However, the dates of the Mahabharata War vary from 6000 BCE to 500 BCE.
Raja Ram Mohan Roy in his book ‘Vedic Physics, Scientific Origin of Hinduism’ connects the Mahabharata War with the Indus Valley Civilization. He notes and compares the coding of knowledge found in the (as yet untranslated) Indus Valley seals, to the coded 'hidden' knowledge in the Rig Veda.
Roy's view is that, “On the eve of the ‘Mahabharata War’ our ancestors believed that their knowledge was in danger of being lost. …writings could be destroyed. Therefore they decided that they would organize the Vedic knowledge and instruct pupils to memorize it, who will pass it on orally.” Krishna Dvaipayana who is described by Roy as “the chief Vedic scientist” accomplished this organization of Vedic knowledge in the Rig Veda, the Samaveda, the Yajurveda, and the Artharveda. The Sanskrit word VEDA means knowledge wisdom.
According to Roy after the Mahabharata War “the knowledge contained in the Vedas was gradually lost. As the knowledge contained in the Vedas started to make no sense at all, it became difficult to preserve the knowledge.” Thus the Sanskrit commentaries were composed in order to preserve the meaning of the Vedas. The Satapatha Brahmana is the most comprehensive of these commentaries, but as Roy opines: “Several centuries must have passed between the Mahabharata War and the writing of the Satapatha Brahmana, because the Satapatha Brahmana shows a significant loss of Vedic science.” Also there are several new ideas not found in the Vedas and “hardly any legend of creation.”
There are numerous descriptions of radiation weapons and aerial ships in the epic Mahabharata. From the perspective of seeing Earth as one of many planetary colonies, and because there are no verifiable dates to ascertain the time of the Mahabharata War, one might conclude that great and terrible war brought about the end of the Indus Valley civilization.
Other researchers have suggested that in ancient times a massive war occurred that used terrible nuclear weapons, which released and spread radiation over and around the earth. The radiation generated by such a catastrophic conflict involving all the armies of the ancient world may have spread far beyond the targeted areas, just as the plumes from the Fukushima disaster have and continue to spread over the Pacific Ocean and the entire planet. Such intense exposure could have easily altered most, if not all of mankind and diminished our perceptive capacities and intelligence levels considerably.
I suggest that the war was indeed waged between opposing sides of one family, but a family whose origin was beyond our heliosphere. This Great War is described in detail in the Mahabharata and ushers planet Earth into the Kali Yuga. The consequence of the devastating clouds of radiation left human intelligence vastly diminished. Most humans were then relegated to and trapped in five-sense perception, as we lost our previous abilities to access the myriad worlds and dimensional realms now invisible to most. Recent research by Professor Gerald Crabtree, who heads a genetics laboratory at Stanford University in California, suggests that human intelligence peaked as early as 4,000 BCE.
Indian authors have published a number of books that compare Vedic thought with modern science and quantum physics theories. Only a highly and technologically advanced civilization could have evolved the subtle ideas expressed in the Vedas. In ‘Vedic String Theory’ author M. Anant Bhakta says that in his work “a pioneer attempt is made to present the String Theory of Everything (T.O.E.) discovered by the Vedic sages, perhaps four to five millennia ago, and on which the unique Vedanta philosophy rests. …at the primordial level and from a void-like infinite ocean of consciousness (the Brahman, the Unborn), emerges the generator of ‘strings or sutras of consciousness’ — called the Hiranyagarbha (Golden Egg, the Firstborn), which is the precursor of the universes.”
Thus we see that ideas found in today’s string theory are connected Vedic thought. More quotations from M.Anant Bhakta’s Vedic String Theory:
“Mind-space (Chidakasha) … mind space is a mirrior-image of the macrocosm. … Imagery of Foam and Bubbles … often used in the Vedic literature while describing the clusters of universes that are being created and dissolved in the cosmos. … Quantum electrodynamics holds the view that all-pervading vacuum continuously spawns particles and waves that spontaneously pop into and out of existence on an unimaginably short time scale. This flux of particles is frequently referred to as ‘quantum foam’ which is believed to extend throughout the universe.”
“According to Gribben and Rees, ‘Theorists are now being led to consider the possibility that our universe is, indeed, just one bubble among many in some greater meta-universe.’ Michio Kaku writes... These universes might be compared to a vast collection of soap bubbles suspended in air.”
The genius sage and saint of Kashmir, Abhinavagupta (950-1020 AD) expressed a similar idea in his Paramarthasara, or Essence of the Exact Reality: “Maya tattva serves as the inanimate objective substance out of which all other sentient elements evolve. It is thus the substantive cause of numerous universes floating like bubbles in an ocean.”
M. Anant Bhakti: “Hiranyagarbha is variously translated as the Golden Egg, Golden Embryo … also called ‘Sutratma,’ the string-shaped consciousness (Atman) … Sutras mean ‘strings’ … accurate to regard sutras as strings with encoded program. According to Sanskrit scholars, sutra literally means ‘that which generates something.’ … Hiranyagarbha or the string field … that, along with consciousness, pervades the universe is also called VYOMA (ether).”
M. Anant Bhakti emphasizes the importance of consciousness in reaching any real understanding of the universe and quotes Eugene Wigner, the Hungarian-American theoretical physicist and mathematician who explored quantum mechanics: “Science itself is beginning to realize that it cannot evolve a T.O.E. without elevating consciousness to the primordial (transcendental) level which is beyond the reach of scientific methods. Eugene Wigner clearly states that it is not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.”
