Mythology

Deja Vu on Science Advancement and Ancient Hindu Mythology

Writing has power! I have always blabbered about how Ancient Technology by far outraces the present, but to an extent its not about whether these things existed but more about the basic concept and ideology behind writing these things. Imagine you are writing a Sci-Fi novel with elements including time-jumps and vicious time-keepers. I am sure you will include your own idea about how you made that Time Machine a reality in the novel (since, its not in real life). You would make your own theories and algorithms to suggest that Time Machine is indeed a reality so as to convince the readers that, Yes! It is. The Protagonist in your novel might be a scientist who is a workaholic and dreams about making the Time Machine a reality and one day finally does it but he is so high-eyes now that he doesn’t want to share that secret recipe he used in making his dream into reality. He is well aware of the fact that he had almost put his entire life into making it and has no intention in divulging the information. But that is a story. What is the advancement here? Its not the “made up theory” you brought for making the Time Machine but the core concept of Time Travel that matters. Here, you are not the hero, but the person who thought about it first. The same way Newton thought about gravitation or Kekule thought about Benzene ring structure, the real thinker is the one who proposed it first with no consent to those who thought it later. Period. This is all a story.

And I cant be very sure on the parts of Mythology as well. They might be, might not be. But if there is one thing I am sure about, more than the existence of aliens, it is that there have been many instances, examples where mythologies have proved to be superior than modern day technology. While some are true to the very notion of the existence of human beings, some are quite absurd but, what choice do I have!

NUCLEAR WEAPONS

A few excerpts from the Mahabharata have caused doubts in the minds of historians, indicating the possibility of nuclear weapons being used in the Mahabharata war or post-war. This fire of suspicion has further been fueled by the recent discoveries of green glass and many radioactive samples in certain excavations, in India, which apparently were associated with the Mahabharata war. Green glass is said to form when sand melts at very high temperatures prevalent in Nuclear Explosions
In the Mahabharata the total death toll amounts to around 1.6 billion in a matter of 18 days. How could this be possible unless and otherwise there is an involvement of weapons of mass destruction. Modern archaeological surveys have slowly started to provide us valuable clues of the war. The vast amount of devastation found at the site of Mohenjo Daro ( also read: Radioactive Skeletons Of MohenjoDaro ) corresponds exactly to Nagasaki.

Dr Oppenheimer, apart from being a great scientist, was also a great lover of Sanskrit. He had studied a vast number of Sanskrit books in original, including the Bhagavad Gita (which is part of the Bhishma Parva of the Mahabharata).

When the massive nuclear blast whose blazing light covered most of the sky took place, the following words in Chapter 11 shloka 12 came out spontaneously from Dr Oppenheimer’s lips:

” Divi surya sahastrasya bhaved yugapad utthita
Yadi bhah sadrashi sa syat bhasastasya mahatmanah”

Which translates to:

“If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once in the sky, that would be the splendour of the mighty One”.

That shloka is in the Chapter where Lord Krishna reveals his massive divine form to Arjuna. On seeing this form Arjuna was terrified, and asks,  “Tell me, who are you ?”Lord

Krishna replies:

“Kaalo asmi loka kshaya kritpraviddho” ( Chapter 11 shloka 32).

Which translates to:

“I am Death, the destroyer of worlds”.

Much later, in a television interview in 1965, Dr Oppenheimer said: “We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed (immediately after the nuclear explosion), a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince (Arjuna) that he should do his duty, and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form, and says: “Now I am become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds”.

 

PREGNANCY

Embryo transfer is done today as In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) or Zygote IntraFallopian Transfer (ZIFT) and in both processes embryo is developed outside the womb and then

birth-kaurava-gandhari-mahabharat-indian-mythologyplaced inside. When Kansa had killed six foetuses of Devaki and she got pregnant for the seventh time, transfer of foetus was arranged by Vishnu. He ordered Yogamaya to take out the foetus of Devaki and place it in the womb of Rohini, another wife of Vasudeva who then resided in the house of Nanda in Gokul.

Stem cell technology‘ as the single foetus was broken into many pieces by Gandhari. There is description of how the wise man Vyasa carefully ‘loaded ‘ them into small pots or modern day test tubes, preserved/safely held in place by closing them with a piece of cloth and they were carefully attended to by some trained parichaarakas symbolic of ‘incubating’ these test tubes under supervision.The cells from broken pieces of foetus because of totipotential nature of embryonic cells could be ‘cultured ‘ into compete human forms.Even Dronacharya was ‘KUMBHASAMBHAVA’, from a pot and signifies earlier test tube technology of a single sperm and ovum.Even the chronological description of both events stunningly correllate with sequence of evolution of present day technology.

test-tube-baby“No woman can give birth to 100 children in her lifetime, that too all males and of the same age,” B G Matapurkar, a surgeon with the Maulana Azad Medical College in New Delhi told the conference organised by the southern chapter of the All India Biotech Association. Matapurkar, who holds a US patent on organ regeneration technique that he developed 10 years ago, said that he was thrilled when he stumbled on a verse in Mahabharata under the chapter Adiparva that actually describes how the Kauravas were created from a single embryo from Gandhari. (Source: Kauravas were Cloned) He said that according to the description in Mahabharata, the Kauravas were created by splitting the single embryo into 100 parts and growing each part in a separate kund or container.
“In other words,” Matapurkar said, “they not only knew about test-tube babies and embryo splitting but also had the technology to grow human fetuses outside the body of a woman-something that is not known to modern science,” he added.”

In Mahabharatha, when Subhadra was pregnant, Arjun told her the secret of entering the chakravyuh. When he was explaining the exit procedure, Subhadra fell asleep. Hence Abhimanyu learned the entrance procedure while he was in Subhadra’s womb but did not learn the exit strategy. There was a time when people criticized this concept. But modern science says that it is very much possible. In his book “Right Brain Education in Infancy” Dr. Makoto Shichida, says, the right brain is active during gestation.

 

  • LIVE TELECAST

 

This is wildest claim from the listed.

As Dhritarashtra was blind but wanted to know what was happening at the battlefield, Krishna gifted Sanjay with “Dibya Drishti”, so that he could see a “Live Telecast” of “Kurukshetra” and describe that to Dhritarashtra. “Dibya drishti” is analogous to modern television set in the sense that Krishna could not give it directly to Dhristarastra but needed Sanjay.

  • DISTANCE OF SUN FROM EARTH

sun-and-earth3-1024x632

Two lines of “Hanuman Chalisa” computes the distance of earth from sun with great simplicity and that too quite accurately – जुग सहस्त्र योजन पर भानु, लील्यो ताहि मधुर फल जानू (Juug Sahastra Yojan Par Bhanu, Lilyo taahi madhur fal jaanun). This means that Sun (Bhanu) is at a distance of Juug Sahastra Yojans (जुग सहस्त्र योजन- Distance Unit in Hindi).
According to conversion practices that are in use as per Hindu Vedic Literature – 1Juug= 12000; Sahastra= 1000; 1Yojan=8 Miles. Thus 12000 X 1000 X 8 = 96,000,000 miles. 1 miles= 1.6 kms. This means 153,600,000 Km. In the 17th century two scientists Giovanni and Richer have calculated the distance of sun from earth accurately and real close (at 140 million kilometers) to now officially declared figures.

Other:

  1. The existence of Puspak Viman.
  2. Legends speak of the head that grew back 10 times after being cut every time by lord Rama, sounds familiar?  Seems to me like Ravana in his wish got the ultimate ability of Rapid Cellular Regeneration ( also known as Tissue Regeneration) currently being studied extensively.
  3. King Trishanku went to his guru Vashistha and said, “please help me perform a ritual by which I can go to heaven while I am still alive.”

Vashistha replied, “It is a law that no living person can go to heaven. Go and do good deeds and you will go to heaven when you die.” Disappointed, Trishanku requested Vashistha’s sons to help him. They got angry, “How can you ask us something that our father has already denied? We curse you to become old.” Trishanku immediately turned old.” He went to the great sage, Vishwamitra, for help. Vishwamitra promised to fulfil his wish. Vishwamitra performed a big Yajna; he chanted mantras and made offerings to gods. But the gods did not want anyone to break a law and enter heaven alive; they did not accept the offerings. Vishwamitra was furious and said , “I will send you to heaven by my own powers. Rise Trishanku. ” As he said this, Trishanku began to rise and reached the gates of heaven. The gods stopped him and said, “You can’t come to heaven alive. Fall back to earth.” Trishanku started falling back. Vishwamitra said, “Don’t fall! Stay!” And Trishanjku hung between heaven and earth. Then Vishwamitra said, ” I will create another heaven for Trishanku .” He created the stars and as he was going to create another Indra, the gods stopped him saying , “Don’t do this unnatural thing. ” By this time, Vishwamitra had cooled down. He agreed to stop but said, “I have to keep my promise. Trishanku will live with these stars.” The gods agreed but declared that Trishanku would live in his heaven upside down.

Actually Trishanku floated in between the two parallel force due to gravitational force. which was discovered and proved by Sir Newton. To reach to heaven he needed a very high uplift force.

    1. Hello!
      theories also suggests that Gods were nothing but people from another planets or aliens as you said who came to earth wielding powers and shaped the religions and beliefs. So yes ofcourse that could be a theory too.
