there is an an entire ancient urban city found with a underground sewage system that is as good as most modern sanitations systems
I am not even going to try convince you. You don't matter to me
Can anyone actually properly and categorically debunk this, because if you can't, then it must mean it's true.
Anyway, I'm gone for the week, so my annoying avatar which you all have been complimenting me on so often lately wont be popping up in anything new. I'll see you all next weekend.
With the ballons an experiment was carried out. A practical experiment.

Also this mercury based engine story is intriguing, but I would like to read the actual book preferrably with references to the experiment and any technical schematics that are related.
CHAPTER – 14 METALS FOR VIMANAS -LOHADHIKARANAM:
Out of many topics of ‘Vymanika Shastra’, the one picked up by most Indian researchers is on metals and materials. In particular metals conclusively categorised for use on vimana have incited curiosity.
Three ancient scientists quoted are Shownaka, Manibhadra (in his Manibhadra Kaarika) and Saamba.
All the three sages commonly point at three kinds of root metals for aviation applications - Somaka, Soundaalika, and Mourthwika. Apart from lightness, metallic property targeted is heat absorbing / resistance.
The root metals [in ore form] are described to be available at identified layers of earth’s crust out of about three thousand metal bearing layers. Different layers contain different metal ores in varying grades.
Loha Kalpa and Lohatantra are described as the master texts on metallurgy.
(note: Text says"Besides sage Bharadwaja, other seers of name and fame in mythology such as Goutama, Shounaka, Vashista, Agastya, Atri, Narayana, Lallacharya and many others made in-depth contribution )
Lallacharya’s classification of metals is distinct in it’s own way and it is source- related as follows.
Kritaka or artificial
Evolved from vermin
Grown from salt
Hair born and egg born
Rocket engine that uses ions (charged particles) rather than hot gas for propulsion. Ion engines have been successfully tested in space, where they will eventually be used for gradual rather than sudden velocity changes. In an ion engine, atoms of mercury, for example, are ionized (given an electric charge by an electric field) and then accelerated at high speed by a more powerful electric field.
How might an ion engine work? -- DAA, San Diego, CA
One possible ion engine uses mercury as a propellant. The mercury starts as a liquid in a small tank, but its atoms slowly evaporate to form a low-density gas. An electric discharge through this gas, such as occurs inside a fluorescent lamp, knocks electrons off some of the mercury atoms. When a mercury atom loses an electron, it becomes a positively charged mercury ion and can be accelerated from the discharge by electric fields. In the ion propulsion engine, an electric field extracts and accelerates the mercury ions toward a hole in the side of a spaceship. The mercury ions are ejected into space at enormous speeds. As they accelerate, the mercury ions exert reaction forces on the engine and these forces are what propel the spaceship forward. Overall, the mercury ions accelerate in one direction while the spaceship accelerates in the other direction. To keep the spaceship electrically neutral, the engine also ejects electrons into space. However, mercury ions provide most of the engine's thrust.

Inside the circular air frame, place the mercury-engine with its solar mercury boiler at the aircraft center. By means of the power latent in the heated mercury which sets the driving whirlwind in motion a man sitting inside may travel a great distance in a most marvellous manner. Four strong mercury containers must be built into the interior structure. When these have been heated by fire through solar or other sources the vimana (aircraft) develops thunder-power through the mercury.
The mercury is then heated by solar rays which develops thunder power
This sets a whirlwind motion and develops thunder power from the latent power in the Mercury(obviously ejected to produce thrust)

Mercury in Ancient India:
Your first apprehension is whether the ancients Indians
knew how to extract mercury.
...There are entire existing texts on extracting metals
from the ores, ...
highly developed given the fact that steel and zinc were being manufactured industrially. Which require complex metallurgical processes to manufacture.
The Mercury Vortex Engine:
The power is latent within the Mercury
The mercury-engine is placed inside a circular air frame
It contains four containers/chambers built into the interior structure for the Mercury.
Now, the modern Ion engine by NASA:
solar-electric propulsion engine or solar-ion propulsion engine,.
The engine works by bombarding vaporized Mercury(Cesium and Argon are also used) with electrons from solar cells, which ionizes the gases. The Mercury vapor contained in the container is released into the ionization chamber, where it is then bombarded by electrons generated by the solar cells to ionize the gasses which causes it to heat up, which then is accelerated out of the nozzle to achieve thrust.
and is nearly identical to the engine recently devised by NASA called the ion engine or the solar-electric ion engine.
You are way off on the solar reactor. The engine works due to the Mercury being ionized by the photoelectrons produced from the solar rays.
However, other sources such as electric fields or nuclear propulsion can be used too.
General Remarks on Vimanas diagrams and drawings:
· Inclusion of diagrams and drawings was an add on activity by Sri. Shastriji from 1919 – 1923 AD. This was done through a local draughtsman under the pandit’s guidance. It is difficult to accept that this process also was under the divine influence.
* The diagrams were not a part of the original channeled text. They were not psychically inspired.
* They are not drawn by Shastri, but by a local druaghtman.
* Shastri is not a technician or an engineer.
Okay, so THEY are saying that this book was channeled by Shastri, right? Not that old copies existed and he's retranslating them or doing a scholarly compendium.
It's something that's channeled, according to these people, correct?
