Earth is only one of hundreds of colonies in our galaxy, which is home to 100 billion alien planets. Now is the time for this self-evident truth to be accepted! Planet Earth is a Sacred Cosmic Life Laboratory for the creation of a wondrous variety of beings. What is created here may be shared with other planets, and the living beings that inhabit or will inhabit those planets throughout the universe. Repeating cycles of Ice Ages and warm periods on Earth are fertile ground for the evolutionary seeding, nurturing and tempering of races. These cycles create an environment conducive to the spiritual, mental, and emotional development, and the perfection of beings.
The Rig Veda is our most accurate window into ancient times. The Seers, the Rishis who wrote these hymns were not only enlightened adepts and genius poets — they were also masters of highly advanced technology and sciences, which included space, the heliosphere, aerial ships, radiation weaponry, and climate modification.
What you read here does not diminish or disregard the value of spiritual knowledge in the sacred Sanskrit texts, or the importance of seeking Enlightenment. In fact this ‘off-world’ perspective embraces and rejoices in the magnificence of the Creator, the Oneness that supports the temporal holographic universe with Its vast spectrum of dimensional realms. Nor does this conclusion demean humanity in any way, for it also celebrates the greatness of every courageous soul who has chosen to come here to participate in the grand ongoing process of seeding the universe.
Beneath the stunning dazzling spectacle of around 300 billion galaxies lies the Oneness — only ONE SOUL. We are all portions of the One that is the ultimate Source of this universe and all Life. As portions of the infinite immutable immeasurable One and for the sake of our adventure into consciousness, we are pretending to be separate. We Veil our great Oneness in individuality and the temporal illusion of separation via signals transmitted as differentiated perception through the five senses to the brain.
A Sacred Quiz
The source of all other Sanskrit texts, the Rig Veda is written in early Vedic Sanskrit. Each word often contains multiple and layered meanings. The verses can be understood and translated from the perspective of history, science, philosophy, physics, and metaphysics. In my considered opinion, the Rig Veda reflects the knowledge and wisdom of civilizations far superior to ours and thus gives us authentic glimpses into the previous cycles of time.
Scholars disagree about the meaning of the Sanskrit words in the Rig Veda. The Sanskrit of this ancient text is very different than other later texts such as the Upanishads, the epic Mahabharata, or the even later Puranas. Rig Vedic scholarship is complex, conflicted and confused as these quotes from scholars reveal:
“To this day there is no internally consistent and coherent interpretation of the Vedas.” [‘The Celestial Key to the Vedas’ by B.G Sidharth, Indian physicist and director general of B. M. Birla Science Centre.]
The verses in the Rig Veda have a secret meaning, which employs a double-language method that was deliberately intended. “The language of the Rig Veda is archaic and contains such grammatical devices and linguistic forms which are beyond the reach of the common mind…these create a sort of sacred quiz, which taxes the ingenuity of even the most learned one…There is considerable disagreement among the interpreters of the Rig Veda, particularly in the interpretation of individual words.” [‘The Rigveda, Mandala III’ by Shukla & Shukla]
Advanced science & technology in the Rig Veda
I have translated verses in the Rig Veda that describe rocket fuel, ritual breeding and/or artificial insemination, and Ionospheric heating weather modification similar to HAARP. I admit that four years of teaching myself Sanskrit is insufficient to the task. However in my view, the Rig Veda has yet to be properly translated and certainly has never been translated from the perspective of it containing glimpses of a greater and more technically advanced civilization.
Earth’s current science has now seen over 300 billion galaxies in the universe. Can there be anyone who still believes in the absurd fantasy that we are alone in the universe? The fact that there are countless other life forms in the universe does not imply that there is no God. If anything the stunning depth of multiplicity and beauty ‘out there’ should affirm our faith and trust in the Creator. The Oneness is! Metaphysical wisdom from many sources reveals an eternal immutable inter-connecting force “beneath the curtain of each atom” [Sufi Mahmud Shabistari] and this invisible ‘substance’ for which there are no words is what we all are.
Earth is but one of hundreds of planetary colonies.
The Nobel Prize winning author Doris Lessing wrote a series of unique novels that are illuminating insights into the understanding that we here on planet Earth are but one of hundreds of planetary colonies. By the 1970s Lessing was influenced by Sufism and these sci-fi novels reflect her considerable and highly intelligent spiritual wisdom. Lessing’s ‘Canopus in Argos’ series are powerful enlightening tales that can open our modern minds to a profound understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
There is evidence in the verses that the people who wrote the Rig Veda originally came from the Arctic Circle, which was then a mild climate. They, like so many others, were forced to migrate to escape the ice and brought their knowledge as memory with them. [‘The Arctic Home in the Vedas’ by Lokmanya Bâl Gangâdhar Tilak; available online.]
The Ancient Rishis
In our current era we cannot even imagine the states of consciousness of these poet Seers who spontaneously spoke the stunningly beautiful Rig Veda verses. Their brain patterns would have been so completely different to ours. Telepathic and communicating through ‘sound-words’ comparable to spheres of multiple meanings, they would not think in a linear manner. The sounds would have contained and transmitted into the listeners many layers of ideas as states of consciousness, not merely as linear sentences – the way we think today.
I believe that the reason for numerous flawed and confusing translations of the Rig Veda is the glaring fact that our consciousness and our brain power, our ability to think in a deeper and non-linear manner, has so greatly devolved over the millennia through the Cycles of Time, that we have lost the all encompassing powers of perception naturally possessed by the Rishis/Seers who conceived the Rig Veda.
The Rig Veda Seers were carrying the consciousness of the previous cycles of time, the Satya Yuga and the Treta Yuga. Remember that writing was not invented until our current Kali Yuga era and is considered a degenerate symptom of this final cycle of time. Even the material world would have appeared quite differently in those days.
Translations are ‘forced’ to adapt to preconceived beliefs.
Scholars who translate the Rig Veda cannot agree on the meaning of the words and Indian writers admit that their meaning is ‘forced’ to adapt to preconceived beliefs. It is my view that the Rig Veda is not composed of linear sentences, but uses these ‘spherical’ logographic words that have with layers within layers, and simultaneously provide multiple meanings, which serve to illuminate and connect many fields such as history, science, and metaphysics. Here in our present day Kali Yuga we are trapped in, limited to the five senses, linear and compartmentalized thinking, and no longer have the higher ‘whole mind’ consciousness capable of grasping words as spheres containing layers of meaning.
‘Deva’ means light or the bright shining ones.
The Sanskrit word ‘deva’ is traditionally translated as gods, but literally means light or the bright shining ones. In his book ‘The Celestial Key to the Vedas‘ B.G. Sidharth states, “the Rig Vedic deities are really very definite and subtle scientific entities [principles] and not tribal or semi-tribal gods.” B.G. Sidharth scientific research focuses on Particle Physics and Cosmology, and some feel that he should have received the Nobel Prize for his work in ‘dark energy’. His view is that Rig Vedic “hymns are not religious prayers, but astronomical and other scientific facts or discoveries deliberately and cleverly camouflaged.”
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.
The connection and correlation between the Sanskrit texts and quantum physics, Erwin Schrodinger’s cat, is well known. I have read six books by Indian scientists who are finding physics, string theory, quantum physics, and astronomy in the Sanskrit texts. These ideas are very subtle and could only have come from a more advanced civilization.
Limited to differentiated five-sense perception
The ancient Seers were very aware that as we moved down through the Cycles of Time, our perceptions would diminish until we reach the point of being limited to the five senses. The Rishis knew that as ‘density’ increased and human consciousness devolved into a miasma of amnesia, we would not be able to comprehend words as ‘spheres’ of layered and multiple meanings. Therefore in order to preserve sacred Truth throughout the ensuing degeneration of human consciousness in Time, they encoded the eternal metaphysical principles that create, sustain, and destroy the universe into personified deities to make these abstract subtle concepts easier for limited five-sense perception to grasp.
