Indian Sage, Atomic Theory-2,600 Years Ago

Members: Found this interesting. There are other indications throughout history that mankind may have been exposed (!) to atomic theory and nuclear fission in the distant past. Even evidence indicating perhaps nuclear destruction with vitrified ground and fortresses. (stone turned to glass from extreme exposure to intensely high heat as from a nuclear blast). Perhaps you'll find this article interesting as well. Mysterioustranger

The Indian Sage Who Developed Atomic Theory 2,600 Years Ago
December 8, 2014

"Acharya Kanad was born in 600 BC in Prabhas Kshetra (near Dwaraka) in Gujarat, India. His real name was Kashyap.

Kashyap was on a pilgrimage to Prayag when he saw thousands of pilgrims litter the streets with flowers and rice grains, which they offered at the temple. Kashyap, fascinated by small particles, began collecting the grains of rice.
A crowd gathered around to see the strange man collecting grains from the street. Kashyap was asked why he was collecting the grains that even a beggar wouldn’t touch.

He told them that individual grains in themselves may seem worthless, but a collection of some hundred grains make up a person’s meal, the collection many meals would feed an entire family and ultimately the entire mankind was made of many families....(cont)..."

I just want to point out that the original source of this article because the author, April Holloway, puts out a lot of interesting material at Ancient Origins.

Acharya Kanad did not develop atomic theory per se. He philosophised on matter through logical observation. He also thought that there were five basic elements, which sounds a bit like alchemy.

Atomic theory, which started to pin down what atoms were, as opposed to wild stabs in the dark, was only really documented three hundred years ago as we began to put names to things and understand chemistry and physics.

It is interesting though, that in the middle ages, alchemists believed that transmutation of one element to another was possible . It wasn't until the invention of nuclear reactors, linear accelerators and other high-energy systems that this actually became possible. Even now not all the possible combinations of fission and fusion are known:

Ancient meaning of the word elements was different than what he think now of the word in our periodic table,
would you consider fire as an element?
or should we think they didn't know the difference between gold and copper?
Their view of elements (earth, fire, water, air, ether) was closer to our definition: state of matter, the solid, the liquid, gaseous states, etc

Also the move towards a rational understanding of nature began at least since the Archaic period in Greece (650 – 480 BCE)
Physics (from Ancient Greek: φύσις physis "nature") was developed out of philosophy, and was thus referred to as natural philosophy until the late 19th century.

Furthermore alchemy’s roots lie in Alexandria, the heart of Hellenistic Egypt, and its intellectual foundation was in Aristotelian philosophy. Alchemy influenced chemistry with the apparatus and equipment used, and was basically the foundation of the techniques of modern chemical science. Alchemy is somehow the ancestor of chemistry.

There is no such evidence of any nuclear destruction in ancient times.

About the same time that similar ideas were being developed in Greece. By Leucippus, for one.

Ho Hum.

No.

Our ancestors certainly knew that gold and copper were different - there is no doubting that. However, they did not know "why". Nor did Acharya Kanad, who speculated that matter was made up of very small things, which we now recognise as atoms.

I would say in my opinion that this knowledge goes back to the times of the vedas and even beyond. Ancient legends talk about a bramah weapon which is much like a nuclear weapon in some respects.

Ancient vedic legends speak of atoms and even worlds within them.

The types of weapons in ancient legends are many varied and quite powerful, they even talk about Death Stars flying around.

Who knows for sure it could be the same old wisdom rehashed in the modern age.

There is no doubt in my mind that Indian history has recorded Ancient Empires of Extra Terrestrials. As well as other dimension beings entering our dimension.

How can you look at Vhimanas and stories of Mahabarta without nothing modern day UFOs,

and this is not even mentioning THE RADIATION found in ancient sites in India. Not to mention mathematics for their ancient Calender, how in the world did they get those advanced numbers.

It is sad that average Indian has NO IDEA what their culture and religion is hiding, mental treasure beyond scope. Of course plenty of this was destroyed by the British and those they paid off.

Exactly what radiation would that be?

Hopefully the natural radiation found in regions of India and not the made up stuff for 'nuke explosions'.
