The Rig Veda is said to be between 3000 and 10,000 years old. The Third Mandala/Book of the Rig Veda Is attributed to the Seer/Rishi Vishvâmitra, his sons and disciples. What I visually conceptualize when I read Rishi Vishvâmitra’s verses is a technology of plasma being collected and converted into a usable form, similar to electricity. It is my conclusion that the Sanskrit word Soma means plasma. This technology uses plasma to produce a fuel by a thermo-acoustic process – meaning heating sound waves – which channels and directs the plasma coming into earth’s magnetic field from the solar wind and space. This ‘captured’ and controlled plasma is then transformed into an electromagnetic-fire, Agni in Sanskrit — useful in the way we utilize electricity for energy, but perhaps better, safer, easily produced, and essentially free.
“…the earth’s magnetic field is continually bathed in hot, magnetized, supersonic, collisionless plasma capable of conducting electrical current and carrying a large amount of kinetic and electrical energy.” [The Earth’s Ionosphere, Plasma Physics and Electrodynamics, by Michael C. Kelly]
Sound propagates as a pressure wave and can be induced into virtually any material. This induction into matter occurs whenever time-varying electromagnetic energy is absorbed. By using intense lasers, the intensity of the sound is increased in proportion to the light intensity. Agni, traditionally the fire god, is Electric-Fire, electromagnetic radiation and an energy comparable to electricity. The stimulating radiation which induces thermally generated acoustic waves into matter may lie anywhere in the electromagnetic spectrum, from high-energy ionizing particles to low-energy radio waves.
The solar wind is supersonic, so what kind of technology would interact with a supersonic wind and convert it into sound waves? Plasma waves and sound waves are both waveforms and it is possible to convert one into the other and vice versa. There are literally endless rivers of energy constantly bombarding, being funneled, transmitted through and around our planet. In the Rig Veda they are called the Rivers of Heaven and they are described as being ‘churned’ by the learned seers: “You are rubbed to life.” [III.29.12] Soma is often described as being found on the mountain, which I say means the mountains that are pyramids and located all over this planet Earth.
The Sun & Ionized Plasma
The sun has a very complex magnetic field created by convective flow of the electrically conducting solar material. The upper atmosphere of the sun is so hot that hydrogen and helium can escape gravitational attraction and form a steadily streaming outflow of material called the solar wind. Because of its high temperature and constant illumination by the sun, the solar wind is a fully ionized plasma. The expanding wind drags the solar magnetic field outward and the result is that the earth’s magnetic field is continually bathed in hot, magnetized, supersonic, collisionless plasma capable of conducting electrical current and carrying a large amount of kinetic and electrical energy. These plasma particles move freely along the earth’s magnetic field lines. [M.C. Kelley]
The solar wind is supersonic and a magnetohydrodynamic generator. Some of the solar wind finds its way into earth’s ionosphere and the upper atmosphere. There it powers the aurora, creates magnetic storms and substorms that affect power grids and communication systems, heats the polar upper atmosphere, and drives large neutral atmospheric winds. The solar wind that reaches the ionosphere and the upper atmosphere also energizes much of the plasma on the earth’s magnetic field lines and creates a vast circulating system of hot plasma in and around the earth’s nearby space environment. [M.C. Kelley]
Because of the polarity of earth’s magnetic field, the solar wind ions are deflected to the right toward dusk and electrons to the left toward dawn as they approach the earth. Once deflected, they will spiral around the magnetic field and drift around the earth. The magnetic field strength increases as the plasma approaches the earth. [M.C. Kelley]
The Upanishads are said to have been composed by the Rishis of that era who realized that the essence and metaphysical truth in the Rig Veda was being lost to the affects of the descending cycles of time. One of the oldest and most revered, the Brihadâranyaka Upanishad suggests the relationship between “the solar orb” and that which is subtle:
Brihadâranyaka Upanishad II.3.3
Now the subtle form — it is air [vâyuh] and space [antariksham]. It is immortal [amritam], it is unlimited, it is imperceptible. The essence of that form which is subtle, immortal, unlimited and imperceptible is the principle that is in the solar orb [etasmin mandale], for it is the essence of these two elements. This is with reference to the deities [the light spectrum]. [translated by Nitya Chaitanya Yati]
“Plasma is a collection of charged particles that responds collectively to electromagnetic forces.” [Anthony Peratt, Springer-Verlag, 1992]
Thunderbolts.info provides an Essential Guide to the Electric Universe. In the introduction to plasma we learn that plasma is the most common type of matter and that space is filled with plasma. Plasma is often called the “fourth state of matter” even though it is universally the most common.
“A plasma is formed of some of the negatively charged electrons are separated from their host atoms in a gas, leaving the atoms with a positive charge. The negatively charged electrons, and the positively charged atoms (known as positive ions) are then free to move separately under the influence of an applied voltage or magnetic field. Their net movement constitutes an electrical current…plasma can conduct electric current” [Electric Universe]
“Charged plasma particles are affected by electromagnetic field, which the particles themselves can generate and modify; plasma forms cells and filaments within itself that change the behavior of the plasma, like a feedback loop; plasma behavior is a little like fractal behavior, but unlike fractals plasma is affected by instabilities that add further layers of complexity.”
Electric Currents from Thunderbolts.info:
“It is the global dynamics and systematic interactions of astrophysical plasmas that allow energy to be conveyed of great distances. The evolution of cosmic plasma that includes its structuring into cells results in a relative motion, however slow, of plasma clouds. …All plasma clouds may be considered a system: they are coupled by electrical currents (charged particle beams), they induce in each other. These beams are the source of energy transfer from large, slow moving plasma to smaller plasma regions that may release the energy abruptly or cause local plasma to pinch to the condensed state.”
[The following ‘rendered’ translations are mine]:
Rig Veda III.1.1
Agni, the Electromagnetic-Fire-Energy,
in the exertion of labor [directed] to the favorable woven [plasma] cloud adrim [of charged particles],
uniting, joining, arranging,
quaking, resisting, repelling, shining;
in the house of the sciences of attainment, knowledge-action-invocation,
thought luminous shining goes towards the heavens;
Agni is the carrier to me [Vishvâmitra] of the powerful Soma [the plasma that transforms into viable energy].
The Sanskrit word adrim can be translated as a cloud, or a stone. I believe that because Soma was thought to be a plant, adrim was interpreted as stone. A stone can be used to crush a plant and release its juice. What relation can a cloud have with a plant that is assumed to have an intoxicating chemistry. However adrim translated as cloud makes precise even technical sense in the context of plasma clouds, which the EU tells us are “coupled by electrical currents (charged particle beams), they induce in each other.”
Rig Veda III.1.5
The design plan, purposeful intention by the wise, gifted with insight, intelligence, skillful and enlightened by seer-powers,
[who] founding by purifications, fixing and fastening in earth
the bright flame-like limbs [solar radiances in the heliosphere], over-spreading, pervading, extending to the space, the mid-region raja [the Ionosphere]
the living [plasma], the most distant diffusing light radiance, vast and great, covering all around, having full splendor and power.
III.1.5 contains the Sanskrit word raja, which is defined by Dr. Siddh Nath Shukla as: to the space mid-region, mid-world. I feel the Vedic mid-region is the Ionosphere. The word raja occurs in the Rig Veda 149 times. The original meaning is ‘way, road, route’ — which may reflect the idea that the mid-region, the Ionosphere is the route traversed by charged plasma that can be converted in electromagnetic Fire.
“The earth’s Ionosphere is a partially ionized gas that envelops the earth and in some sense forms the interface between the atmosphere and space.” … Ionispheric physics is “the dynamics and plasma physics of Ionospheric phenomena.” The Ionosphere coexists with and is very much affected by the processes that originate in the magnetosphere and the atmosphere; the Ionosphere receives considerable energy and momentum from the lower atmosphere as well as the magnetosphere. “The energy and momentum fluxes are carried by particles, electromagnetic fields, and atmospheric waves.” [M.C. Kelley]
The Solar Wind
nasa.gov: “The solar wind is an electrically conducting gas called plasma where matter has been torn apart into electrons, which are relatively light, and positively charged ions, which are thousands of times more massive. While areas in sunlight can charge positive, areas in shadow get a strong negative charge when electrons in the solar wind rush in ahead of heavier ions to fill voids created as the solar wind flows by.”
Rig Veda III.1.14
Extracting, drawing out Agni, the Cosmic Fire-Electric from the imperishable eternal Soma [plasma],
concealed, covered where it resides pure, clear, resplendent brightness,
in the utmost boundary of intermediate space-time, the six spaces, the four quarters of the sky with upper and lower spaces,
the vast and great blazing Sun rays assuredly indeed become increased, augmented, stronger, unbroken in harmony serve.
Even a cursory study of the ‘global dynamics and the systematic interactions of astrophysical plasmas’ that make up the solar wind and interact with our planet’s magnetic field — as our solar system moves through the universe — will convey the sense that a perpetual, eternal, endless, and violent interchange is continually occurring. This perpetual motion seems to me to be the gift of a vast Creation which allows civilizations on unlimited colonized planets sources of fuel as they begin to advance from agrarian societies to industrial, and on to more advanced technological eras. It’s free! Only greedy tyrants would choose to keep a free source of energy from the inhabitants of any evolving planet — and this is obviously what has happened here on our little planet Earth!
Vishvâmitra in the Rig Veda
The Rig Veda was composed long before any of the later Sanskrit texts, therefore I focus only on what can be learned from the Rig Veda itself — and not from the stories about him in even the Mahabharata or the Puranas. R.L Kasyap says, “Recall Rig Veda mantras are prior to Râmâyana and Brâhmana books by at least a thousand years or so.”
The Indian scholar Dr. B.B. Chaubey states:
“Vishvâmitra is one of the most inspired seers of the Vedic age. The Indian culture owes much to that eminent seer, for the knowledge of his divine Sâvitrî-Gâyatrî mantra that has been regarded here as one of the most essential qualifications for being a Hindu, nay it has been recognized as an emblem of divine knowledge…”
Thus Vishvâmitra is the seer who composed the great Gâyatrî mantra in the third Mandala/Book of the Rig Veda, all of which is said to be his Mandala, the Vishvâmitra Mandala. There are 62 hymns and not all were composed by Vishvâmitra. How many hymns and mantras of the Rig Veda were actually “seen” by Vishvâmitra is still a matter of controversy [Dr. B.B. Chaubey]. R.L. Kashyap opines that Vishvâmitra Gâthinah composed 1-12, 24-53, 55-62; also that there are eight persons with the patronymic Vaishvâmitra indicating Vishvâmitra as their father.
Dr. B.B. Chaubey presents a compelling view of Vishvâmitra’s antiquity. It seems that in 1970 another Indian scholar, H.R. Divekar made quite a long and convincing argument that Vishvâmitra only composed verse III.62.10. The rest of the Book III is the composition of later Vishvâmitras. According to H.R. Divekar, Vishvâmitra was the first seers among the seers of the Vedic mantras. Before him none had composed a single mantra. Vishvâmitra imparted this art to Vasishtha and others. A detailed list of Divekar’s arguments is presented, but Dr. B.B. Chaubey then refutes the theory. I only bring this to the reader’s attention because I find the idea that some of the Seers actually lived long before many of the verses were even composed highly intriguing.
Already remote in the Rig Veda
A similar case is made for Ângiras whose descendents and disciples are “the dominant protagonist priests of the Rig Veda…[the Ângirases and the Bhrigus of] the pre-Rigvedic past: they go so far back into the past that not only the eponymous founders of these families (Ângiras and Bhrigu respectively) but even certain other ancient Rishis belonging to these families (Brihaspati, Arthatvana, Ushanâ) are already remote mythical persons in the Rigveda…the Ângirases are deified as ‘a race of higher beings between Gods and men’ [I.1.6] …synonymous with fire-priests in general [S.G. Talageri].”
For me, these meager bits of controversial evidence point to an even more distant origin of the contents, the nature of the subject matter, and the possible technological meaning of the Rig Veda, which were lost in the mists of primordial time. It is highly possible that the Rig Veda itself is already the memory of far more ancient times. For the duration of this Kali Yuga, since 3102 BCE, there has been no awareness that there are over 300+ billion galaxies in this universe — with the exception of gifted Seers, the Rishis who ‘see’ in visions a myriad of other worlds.
The controversial scholar, Malati J. Shendge has accurately described the birth of any ritual, yours and mine: “When the events became symbolic and were ascribed magical powers to attain certain aims, the process of mythopoeisation was complete. History was forgotten and dead ritual became the end in itself.” Like the spider who spins its own web, we live in a sort of self-created gauntlet. However this crazed, boring, and increasingly limited entrapment of ours is not a punishment, but rather a test of our strength and resilience. A better comparison is the legendary Labyrinth. We are amazing supercomputers who have intentionally lost the user’s manual!
Crossing the Rivers
Rig Veda III.33 describes an event in the life of Vishvâmitra:
“Once Vishvâmitra reached the confluence of the rivers Vipât and Sutudrî which were at that time at their full spate. Vishvâmitra was accompanied by the Bharatas. He had with him carts and chariots loaded with a huge amount of wealth. With a desire to cross them, he implored the rivers. But the rivers expressed their inability to do so, because they were flowing in obeyance to the order of Indra, their master. When Vishvâmitra lauded Indra, and the rivers came to know that the seer was actually in trouble, because he was with carts and chariots, they ultimately became fordable. Vishvâmitra along with the Bharatas crossed the rivers and thanked them.” [B.B. Chaubey]
Is this story a predecessor to Moses parting the Red Sea? R.L. Kashyap translates the rivers reply to Vishvâmitra as, “Now I bend…” Kashyap who translates the Rig Veda in its esoteric meaning, sees the rivers as having spiritual significance. Still, here we have what appears to be a real life event.
The Rig Veda will perhaps remain an enigma, forever veiled in wondrous ineluctable mystery.
The words in these verses are dense with multiple meanings, what I consider to be spherical layers of meaning; they are in a sense logographic. In sincere humility, I offer my respect and gratitude to the translators and scholars who I am indebted to, and who are far more advanced in the study of Sanskrit and the Vedas than I am. I especially agree in principle with the esoteric translations of R.L. Kashyap. The esoteric interpretation is indeed one layer, but not the only meaning.
The Rig Veda contains great Wisdom-Knowledge and is the seed source for primordial metaphysics on the planet. My immersion into the Rig Veda has changed me in ways that are subtle and difficult to describe. However, I cannot deny what I have found and therefore continue to feel, based on what is being revealed to me, that Vishvâmitra, Ângiras, and other Rishis were in fact not only enlightened masters of metaphysics, but also brilliant masters of advanced technologies — that would be required to colonize any planet, combining the knowledge of plasma physics, astrophysics and space travel, genetics, thermo-hydro-dynamics, lasers, etc.
Such advanced technologies would be a necessity for the founding beings that journey through space looking for suitable planets to seed and colonize. These technologies would include utilizing the most abundant type of matter in the universe, plasma as a source of energy-fuel, the plasma that continually flows in the solar wind and in deep space as our heliosphere moves through the universe. Other technologies required for colonizing planets would be weather modification by heating the ionosphere, the means for anti-gravitational construction to dig canals and move large stones [build pyramids to store the plasma transferred into fuel], inter-dimensional travel, cloaking mechanisms, and the genetic sciences to seed living beings.
A technological Trojan Horse!
In researching the ‘science’ of my theories, I came across this surprising fact: “Miniaturization and digitization of electronics and logic circuits have made satellites more vulnerable to radiation.” This small detail may not seem much to most readers, but for many years now I have held the view that the faction of ETs our governments are making ‘deals’ with are not giving humankind their best real technology. In other words, whatever bargains have been struck are bad. Obviously whatever has been given to us has the blowback consequence of poisoning the planet, our land, food, water and the oceans. The technology that has been shared will not function outside the heliosphere if the miniaturization and digitization of electronics and logic circuits has made satellites more vulnerable to radiation. I seriously doubt it would be capable of defending humankind from the more aggressive ETs, and there are stories that report a deep fear and concern within the military.
Worse, and perhaps the real reason for these ‘gifts’ is that they are intended to be useful to the tyrant faction of ETs themselves, who are perhaps the ultimate invasive species — because these digital technologies that ‘connect’ us all, can be used to control the population of a planet through implementing the global centralization and control of information/propaganda. It may be the so-called negative ETs, the ratzoids who have infused our planet with paradigms of greed and elitism, who will inevitably utilize the authoritarian centralization of information in order to control the planet — a stealth conquest indeed, which may come as a bitter surprise to the elite arrogant humans who have unwittingly played into their plan, while foolishly confiscating most of the wealth on the planet for themselves.
Thus the technology the tyrant ETs have ‘gifted’ our governments in secret may in fact turn out to be sort of techno-Trojan Horse! This would not go against the galactic Law of Non-Interference because the greedy-for-profit humans have unwittingly freely accepted this technology that allows for an authoritarian global centralization, which has the potential to destroy our ‘feeling-sense’ humanity, individuality, and homogenize the population.
On that rather gloomy thought, I close this segment. My rendering-translations of hopefully many of the Vishvâmitra mantras along with possible word meanings will be posted over time. Remember that if in fact Vishvâmitra was a progenitor and scientist, he was also simultaneously an enlightened master whose very being resonated in harmony with primordial metaphysical Truth and the eternal One.
