I'm currently on my roving travels in S.E Asia at the moment and didn't think I would see anything of note to do with this kind of thing.
Nevertheless, on a whim, I explored into an old Chinese Temple among the Chinese Quarter...
It's in Bangkok on the Chao Phraya River (just 100 yards or so from it to be approx).
Anyway a wise old temple keeper see's me hovering around the perimeter beckon's me to come in.
I do so and ask if it's ok to take a picture inside the Temple.
He says yes, yes. So I do so.
The images, dragons and other-worldly things on display all have the offerings of incense. I notice the dragon spirit emblem takes central position,
with demi-gods and goddess being around it.
On the floor are some tiger-like wooden statues.
The temple itself is about 150 years old.
After thanking the old keeper for his time I make way out into the courtyard and am about to leave when I notice there's a bunch of artwork depicting
the olde gods and goddess (mostly gods).
The natural light is perfect.
I notice something 'funny' about them and zoom in with my camera's decent zoom lense...
Nearly all the very much Chinese featured gods and all the goddesses are blue-eyed!!
Now as a Caucasian I found this to be interesting.
So I complete my pictures and go back inside to talk to the old temple keeper about it, rather than draw my own assumption.
I manage to ask him in Thai if the peoples of olde-worlde China (1000 BC) had blue eyes.
He said no they did not (As I figured).
Then he suddenly got up and hobbled to the doorway and outside.
I pointed to the blue-eyed gods and goddesses on the ceiling areas and said 'Why do your artists represent your gods with blue eyes then?'
He became a bit agitated and animated now and said seriously.
'They are the sky-giants' who came down from above. That's why they have the blue eyes.
He gestured and pointed to the sky above, then made 'landing' gestures.
I got a bit buzzed up by this bold assertion and asked if they once came long ago if they'd be due back again (wondering if perhap's there's some
correllation with the 2012 onwards thing).
He said (with fustration it must be said) 'I don't know!'
Then, he became a bit calm again and pointed to some black and white pictures of local (Chinese) community leaders on the wall of the temple.
But I couldn't establish if he was talking about a distant bloodline connection with the 'sky gods' or using them as a comparison to nowadays with
teachers of humanity etc.
I might return another day with more questions, or explore some more Chinese Temples to see if they too 'have the blue eyed connection'...
So my theory is that in China, at least among those that are learned of the old history's still have an awareness and teaching of an ancient race or
people's, likely to of been, at the very least, and advanced tribe.
Indeed The Chinese Emperor Qin's first act was to pile up all the old documents and scrolls etc and burn them.
Among that lot would surely of been information to clearly explain the true nature of the these ancient giants / beings.
The christian fanatics did 'book burning' not much later with Great Library of Alexandria.
Now before I get the whole anti-blue vibe from some of you, I recall from the Book of Enoch about one of the being's (Noah?) being worried that his
son, having blue-eyes was of an angel bloodline. So it's not just in Asia that has this thing, in the Middle-East it was going on too!
I've got the pictures on my camera right now and am just getting them down to the right size...
The first thing to note is that the images all feature in the air, higher up, so your already being told 'they came from above', from the heavens etc
This is strong feature I've noticed in other Chinese temples too. It's always like the outside is reserved for the colourful gods of the sky, while
inside is reserved for the gods of here and now...
This one is ordinary hero's going on their adventures etc. The indigenous people's more than likely.
Now these are nice enough and pretty to look at, as I moved further about the courtyard I saw the stuff that really caught my attention:
Here's two of the 'sky giants/beings'.
Both have blue eyes.
Old god sleep's while a tiger guards? Animal kinship was said to be a strong feature in olden times between man and beast.
Another one, look's a bit different.
Big chubby god, blue eye's with an offering being made by a local:
This is a blue-eyed Chinese featured goddess, interestingly she's attacking what looks to be a reptilian being. Could it be that there was a clash
between the reptilian-type gods and non-reptilian gods?
The dragon certainly feature's heavily in Chinese culture.
Some Worship or praying to one here:
Learned scholar and the master?
Colour change here, possibly after the departure or offspring of one of the other gods?? Or indigenous wise man?
The old temple keeper who revealed the revelation, i blurred him a bit for privacy.
I think there's a lot of raw data and material still in China that would support a mother-tribe or culture theory. The pyramid's that are supposed to
be there and much more. I don't reckon the 'sky gods' to of literally come down from space, more likely that they'll of had air-capable craft from an
advanced location or realm.
The Jade Emperor is said to of come down from a metal dragon and it's more than likely this too was of the same tribe or people as the sky-gods.
Let me know what you think.
I know the skeptics and atheist's shout a loud voice here, but I'm reckoning there's truth in the old tales...
