this article perpetuates ignorance. It talks about how 1,000 years before "Pythagoras was working out the hypotenuse", the Babylonians were already familiar with the concept of A2 + B2 = C2.
Problem is, it is (or should be) fairly well known that Pythagoras did not "invent" the Pythagorean Theorum. It learned it during his initiation rites into one of the Mysteries.
Of course it was well known before him. His true genius was music, not trigonometry. Not to mention his philosophy on life. Of course, the typical "ignorant masses" of his time burned the majority of his work, so little remains of his true genius. But of what does remain, it is clear that he had a near god like intelligence.
Pythagoras (560-480 BC), the Greek geometer, was especially interested in the Golden Section, and proved that it was the basis for the proportions of the human figure. He showed that the human body is built with each part in a definite Golden Proportion to all the other parts. Pythagoras' discoveries of the proportions of the human figure had a tremendous effect on Greek art. Every part of their major buildings, down to the smallest detail of decoration, was constructed upon this proportion.
Apollonius wanted to continue the work of Pythagoras , whom he described as his
spiritual ancestor. Five centuries before Apollonius, Pythagoras had made the same
journey to Kashmir to study the ancient wisdom. Ph ilostratus described the wise men
‘Sages who dwell on earth yet are not of this earth, who po ssesses nothing, yet
When Apollonius left Kashmir he wrote a farewell letter to the sages that said;
“Iarchus and the other sages, greetings from Apoll onius. I came to you by land,
and with your aid I return by sea, and I might even re turn by air, such is the
wisdom you have imparted to me.” According to his trave ling companion Damis
(or Demas) Apollonius had indeed ascended with the sages at least once.
Arctic Homeland of the Vedas?
The ruling families of India are the relatives, through ma rriages, to the Roman
Caesars, the Greek philosophers, the Egyptian pharaohs, and even the Japanese
Emperors. But there is another theory that follows them even further back, to Nordic
roots. According to scholar Felice Vinci, there had been a great migration, an Indo-
European Diaspora from Scandinavia and other northern regions, forced upon them by
climate changes. When they arrived in India and Central Asia, they began the great
Sumerian and Sarasvati cultures. They became the Egyptian Hyksos , the Hittites and
Cassites, the pharaohs, emperors, and rajas of Egypt and India. In other words, they
were the very first Hebrews.
This is, in fact, substantiated to some degree through their Indo -European
languages, their Tocharian and Kurgan graves, their artifacts, and especially their DNA.
Giuliano Bruno, a noted contributor to this theory, points out that in Sanskrit ‘Sumeru’ is
the word for the Arctic Pole (Monier-Williams, Sanskrit-English Dictionary), and the
Kojiki, a Shinto sacred book, calls Japan's first emperors ‘Sumera,’ t hose from the north.
It becomes apparent then, that one must go well below the surface of Sanskrit,
Aramaic, or Greek names to understand the culture, the race, and the migrations that
will reveal the true identity of the first kings and rajas of India.
