Eric Von Daniken has written a couple of books on Aliens saying that the Aliens visited the Earth, Modified our genes and are monitoring our progress.
He theorizes that the Aliens have programmed our genes towards a particular goal and are watching whether the programme is working properly.
He also surmises Lord Rama was an Alien.
There are other theories that the aliens have camouflaged themselves in the earth and taken various forms.
I shall be posting an article as how the genes have been modified and what the present day scientists think of this theory.
I did some research on this subject and have come up with some references to Aliens, Alien Technology in the Ramayana, Mahabharata and the Puranas.
In the light of the fact that the Ramayana and Mahabharata have been proved to be not mere stories but facts and are authenticated by Astronomy, archeology and History,one can not wish away the references in the these texts as pure imagination.
These references are also backed up by the Puranas or is the other way around?
Hinduism and Puranas describe various forms of Beings.
While the descriptions of Rama, Krishna, to cite a few, are Human descriptions, the others like Ravana, the Asuras, Gandharvas, Rakshsas, Nagas, Kinnaras, Kimpurushas.
Of these some descriptions come near our present projection of Humanoids.
I had posted an article that Hanuman might be a Humanoid, Kumbhakarna , a Robot!
The Puranas and the Ithihasas, Ramayana and Mahabharata list,
Devas, Asuras, Gandharvas, Yakshas, Rakshasas, Pisachas, Kinnaras, Kimpurushas, Vanaras, Nagas, Suparnas, Vidyadharas, Valkhilyas, Siddhas and Charanas.
There is a view that some of these or all of them are tribes.
” Devas were further classified into Vasus, Rudras, Maruts, Sadhyas and Adityas. Asuras were similarly divided into Daityas, Danavas, Kalakeyas etc. Among the Daityas were a group called the Nivata Kavachas. However today, we can find the remnants of most of these tribes. Yakshas are found as Yakkas in Nepal, Tibet and Srilanka. Nagas are found as Nagas of Nagaland in eastern India, Nairs and Nagars in southern India. Gandharvas were ancient Gandharas. Pisachas lived in Kashmir attested by the Paisachi languages. Asura-philosophy of hatred towards Devas like Indra is found in the Iranian Veda named Avesta. Kinnaras are found as Kinnaurs in Himachal Pradesh. We also know that people who were considered as humans had interbred with these tribes. Asura Vrishaparva’s daughter became a wife of Yayati and gave birth to sons like Puru. Pandava Bhima had a son named Ghatotkacha upon a Rakshasa women named Hidimba. Ravana himself was a son of sage Visrava and Rakshasa lady Kaikasi. Ravana’s wife Mandodari was an Asura. Ravana had many wives who were Gandharvas. Visrava’s eldest son Vaisravana Kuvera is mentioned as a Yaksha. Thus we can conclude that these tribes were humans but were considered as alien or non-human only in relative terms. We also find that these tribes, today have no memory of them being super human in the past as described by the authors of Mahabharata.”
But the point is that there is no necessity for them to declare themselves as Super humans if they have camouflaged themselves to escape identity on the earth.
Moreover, the Ithihasas were written later to the events.
If these were written by some one who is also an Alien , he would not have disclosed facts about the Aliens.
If he were an ordinary human being, he would not have understood them being under camouflage and therefore the writer described them as they were or as he understood them.
“There is also a view that if they were Aliens they would not have been easily accessible for they lived in places that are easily accessible.
If we look at the geographical locations of these tribes, we find that they, at-least for some period of time during their existence, lived in inaccessible regions like mountains and forests and/or lived isolated from the regions of the authors of Mahabharata. Pisachas lived in the mountains of Kashmir. Yakshas, Kinnaras and Kimpurushas lived in high Himalays or in Tibet, cut off from the authors of Mahabharata who lived in the Indo-Gangatic plain to the south of the Himalayas. Gandharvas too lived in the high mountains of Gandhara and only in later stages moved to Saraswati river basin. They also continued to live along with Yakshas in high mountains. Devas lived further north to Yaksha territories, and lied towards the east. The Asuras lived to the west and north of Gandhara. Vanaras lived in the dense forest named Dandaka in the central and south-central India. Rakshasas lived in the mountains of Trikuta (Ravana) and the Himalayas (Ghatotkacha) or in dense forests (Vaka, Kirmira, Hidimba). Thus the attribution that they were non-human or alien was also due to the fact that they were not easily accessible to the writers of Mahabharata and their lives seemed to them to be mysterious”
That they were accessible does not necessarily mean that they need not have been Aliens for their purpose had been (?) to be with the earthlings, yet to be away from their midst except when necessary.
Also why should a particular Group should stay in a particular region only?
Also note the following facts described.
” Some examples are explanations about flying vehicles (Vimanas), Arjuna’s travels in a flying chariot across the Himalayas, his visit of the Deva territories (ancient alien base-camp in Tibet?), his battle with the Nivata Kavachas (men in space-suits?), Salwa’s attack of the city of Dwaraka in a flying city named Saubha, the triple space-cities of Asuras that revolved around Earth in three circular orbits that was destroyed by Siva using a single projectile weapon, the flying craft of Uparichara Vasu, the Puspaka-Vimana used by Kuvera, Ravana, Vibhishana and Rama, , Rama’s bridge to Lanka across the ocean, the narration of the birth of Kauravas from the cells of an embryo outside the womb of a women, the narrations about celestial-weapons (Divya-Astras) that unleash high energy in the form of fire (explosions), water (rain), air (storm), the narration about the after effects of such weapons suggestive of the use of a nuclear weapon (nails falling down, regions turning into deserts, death of embryos even in womb), the idea that these weapons are invoked by mantras (voice enabled weapons?) and many more.”
We have descriptions of the Astras,which have produced effects similar or more or less identical with the effects of Nuclear weapons.
Read my posts on this.
Extra-terrestrial aliens, in the form of local aliens like the Devas, the Asuras, the Gandharvas, the Yakshas etc interacted with ancient Indians and probably transferred some alien technologies like flying vehicles (Vimanas) and voice-enabled non-nuclear, thermo-nuclear and nuclear projectile weapons (Mantra-invoked celestial-weapons aka Divya-Astras) to them. Did they also assist ancient Indians in creating some wonderful cities? While Indraprastha was built by the Pandavas, a special assembly hall in that city is mentioned as built by Asura Danava Maya who was an architect. The city of Dwaraka is mentioned as built by Deva Viswakarma, who too was an architect. The city of Amaravati belonged to the Devas. The city of Alaka belonged to the Yakshas. The city of Bhogavati belonged to the Nagas. The city of Hiranyapura belonged to the Daitya Nivata Kavachas. All these contained several technological wonders aka illusions.
There is also this strange narration of the birth of Kauravas from the cells divided from an embryonic ball of flesh in artificial environments. This could be a later alien genetic experiment. Though I don’t think the Kauravas were born thus, the narration of this alien genetic experiment might have added to Mahabharata as a later addition and might have used to explain the birth of the Kauravas by later narrators of Mahabharata.”
My view is that there have been Aliens and Hinduism describe them.
I shall be posting on the Earth as Hollow and that The North and South Poles have openings and people(modern) have traveled through them.
