Cosmic Science, and Time
According to Carl Sagan (a well-feted scientist and writer):
The Hindu religion is the only one of the world's great faiths dedicated to the idea that the Cosmos itself undergoes an immense, indeed an infinite, number of deaths and rebirths. It is the only religion in which time scales correspond to those of modern scientific cosmology. Its cycles run from our ordinary day and night to a day and night of Brahma, 8.64 billion years long, longer than the age of the Earth or the Sun and about half the time since the Big Bang.Traditionally, the length of time in each period (of four yugas) is taken as (in human years):
- Satya Yuga equals 1,728,000 years
- Treta Yuga equals 1,296,000 years
- Dvapara Yuga equals 864,000 years
- Kali Yuga equals 432,000 years
We are currently in a Kali Yuga, which would appear to have started on 20th December, 3102 BC, and which was the day when the Krishna avatar is said to have relinquished his mortal coil.
The Hindu concept of time is clearly immense and gives scope to a vast history - and future - that we can hardly contemplate. And if we are to accept this time frame as valid, then a current perception that the Earth is about to end is false. We may be entering a time of very considerable change, but this - as the following story states - has happened time and again before in ancient history.
EvolutionParticularly since Darwin published his 'Origin Of The Species', a death-knell began to toll for the Bible as a believable source of history. Ever since then scientific 'experts' have tried to throw scorn over it and, thereby, ordinary folk - unless they are of strong religious faith - have taken the lead of those who have scientifically claimed to know better.
When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of [the] God[s] (bene Elohim) saw that the daughters of man were attractive. ...
Now, in the 'greater' teaching (of the Kabbalah) it brings to light that there was not simply one Adam (and his Eve), but that the original Adam was Adam Kadmon, who was (if you like) the original blueprint of man, and 'the man' who did precede all other living creatures. Man, it is inferred, was the reason for 'Project Earth', but perhaps it took a very lengthy period of experimentation to decide on the physical form that man would take.
Biblical, and a number of other sources, state quite clearly that the earliest man was not only androgynous but that, in a very ancient period, was even etheric (vid. Kabbalah, Blavatsky, Churchward et al). Therefore, such early men would have left no visible trace on Earth of their presence! Clearly, Darwin did not cotton on to that possibility: esoteric expression in the Bible did its job - it was to deter the wrong people from finding the truth and using it in a superficial way. That principle has been used in many (ancient and recent) writings on Truth.
But there has been another factor in all human evolution, and that is - as a result of skeletal findings - the apparently sudden 'quickening' of man's development. One such appears to have been about 200,000 years ago and one more recent was the discovery of Cro-Magnon man in the mid-19th c. (today scientifically called Early Modern Humans). That development was about 40,000 years ago. The apparent appearance of modern man occurred at around 10,000 BC.
The question, clearly, is just how did this 'quickening' of development suddenly take place. This is where I need to be particularly careful with words as popular culture would certainly think of pointing to 'aliens' as interfering with man's progress. However, though I would not argue with the general point that is made there, the actual meaning of 'aliens' needs to be defined in this context. The reality, as I see it, is that the universe holds much that we cannot dream of, including beings far in advance of us - but whatever it is 'out there' that exists does so under the panoply of the Almighty Creator. Whatever participation 'they' have had in man's development ultimately comes under the stamp of "Made by [the only] God, the Father of All".
That contact has occurred with beings from 'out there' seems to be clear also from strange and ancient rock and cave paintings of beings in various places, and also the knowledge that apparently uneducated peoples have in various parts of the world. A good example of such knowledge is that which is known by the Dogon people of Mali in Africa. Some 50 years ago they were found to have intimate knowledge of the Sirius star complex - knowledge that is impossible to have just through observation with the naked eye.
Christian O'Brien will tell us a little more of comparatively recent 'visitations' in the next chapter, based on his rigorous study.
Pre-10,000BC CivilisationsThe story of early civilisations on Earth has been told by both Blavatsky and Churchward, in similar yet different ways, and confirmed by the psychic Edgar Cayce. Cayce was a most ordinary person in his day-to-day life but, when in a trance, he brought out the most astonishing details about history and medicine, nearly all of which either proved to be correct or are thought to be correct.
They agree that Atlantis came about a long time into the life of Lemuria/Mu and that it finally disappeared in around 9,300BC. Whilst both continents existed, the peoples of the two ancient lands are said to have co-operated until the demise of Lemuria/Mu much earlier in time.

The great 'god' named Thoth is believed to have been one of those significantly involved in its design and construction, and when, it is said, great slabs of stone were elevated and moved by the use of sound - not by the use of countless slaves as Hollywood suggests! I rather suspect the knowledge of how to use sound was still available at the time of the construction of Stonehenge. So, too, there was a highly advanced technology to cut large stone pieces to fit so exactly, not just at these ancient places but others too that show evidence of high technology - including the Longyou Caves in China, discovered in 1992, and buildings in South America. Our spirituality has lessened in this day and age, so such concepts cannot be as easily grasped and utilised.
Another talking point is the Sphinx of Egypt, which clearly shows erosion through rain, though the Giza area was only 'green' in the era preceding and following the rising of the Age of Leo (10,750BC), which corresponds, of course, with the leonine form of the Sphinx. The Age of Leo was also found to have been highlighted on the ceiling of an Egyptian temple.
One further common denominator around the world appears to be in so-called serpent worship, which is almost certainly a much more esoteric form of religion than it may appear to be at first glance. Indeed, Jesus admonished his disciples to "be wise as serpents and harmless as doves" (Matthew 10:16, KJV) - a statement that would be hard to understand, perhaps, unless we believe that Jesus knew the allegorical meaning for 'serpent'. Today's translators seem to reckon that Jesus meant snake, not serpent, and that the full meaning of the phrase (according to them) should be more like 'cunning as a snake'. I will take what is probably the original meaning anytime: a spiritual guide once said, 'if in doubt, go to the original.'
Following the conquest of Mexico by the conquistadores, Bernal Diaz (one of those men) wrote his account of that affair and about the similarity of Christianity and the religious teachings of the Indians. Also, Egyptian forms of mummification were found in the South Seas of the Pacific. The list of similarities could go on and on, but the formal academic world refuses to accept what must surely be obvious.
As Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock have asserted, the Giza pyramids reflect a portion of the Orion star belt, in accordance with the Hermetic teachings that 'as it is above, so it is below'. This reflection of the placings of the stars on Earth has been utilised into modern times, even by the Knights Templar. Indeed, the subject of sacred geometry is also as alive today as it ever was.
Part 3 of this series will be about the history between 10,000BC and the time of Jesus.
