I concur with what the OP states here and it has always been my contention that ancient man could possibly have been more advanced than we acquiesce
to giving them credit for. It clearly insinuates a bias and perhaps we fear that we would have to undo everything we think we know about our
past.....We constantly see anomalies arise such as the Antikythera mechanism which is rather unbecoming for a so called primitive age.....Even in the
bible for example the manner in which the cities of Soddom and Gommorah were destroyed is akin to that of a nuclear explosion and the dead sea might
be a living remnant of what happened there. Is it likely that these two citations are linked?....It is difficult to say. However what intrigues me is
as to why these so called brotherhoods that you mention would withhold such information and maybe they concur with my view of our nation's government.
For the record I don't quite agree that India is much better of now considering the deplorable condition that the country is in which is a direct
consequence of public apathy rather than the British rule.....In a way despite the atrocities that they meted out they unknowingly fashioned an
identity for us after all. (India was invaded several times before and we were only a melange of several nation-states and in a way it is so even
now).This I say because India as a homogeneous entity existed only from a western perspective....For that I am grateful. However I don't think that
India is fit to be ruled by a democracy considering the fragmented mentality of its people.
The flying machines that are made allusions to in ancient scriptures such as Elijah's chariot,vimanas intrigue me...
Persian Fire intrigues me.....
The Iron Pillar at Delhi is fascinating......
The fire that destroyed the Library of Alexandria is disappointing....
Homer's Oddyssey is still incomplete....Undoubtedly an important part of man's history is still missing.
To find a mention of the speed of light in the rig veda is amazing,,,
Most unfortunate of all is the fact that those from the Indus Valley civilization never bothered to find a means for keeping a veritable chronicle of
events that occurred. Otherwise we wouldn't have to resort to speculation.
Perhaps we are only re-discovering things that they already knew as you state...
Another thing I find interesting is the architecture of ancient civilizations......You could say that modern architecture is arguably only slightly
more advanced than Greek or Roman architecture. The nature of planning in those ancient civilizations is rather advanced even from a contemporary
Is it not ironical that one hand we have a panoramic view of our once glorious past and on the other hand we are on the verge of war once
again?.....Despite our progress we cannot resist those primordial urges, the inherent bias that the human persona encompasses that even aeons of
evolution have failed to extradite from our psyche.It is the nature of man to go to war and we shall eventually be the cause of our own
destruction.Man is like a scourge.
The past tells us of fascinating things that we find difficult to believe. Among these I find the story of the tower of babel as being the one that
piques my interest the most.......A singularity, a hive intelligence and then the resurgence of man's true nature - the urge to kill that what we
perceive as being a threat.
Forgive me if I have digressed from the topic of discussion but I think what I mentioned here does bear relevance with the position that you are
trying to consolidate.
