Manojava Is Tachyon Particle Faster Than Light Mundaka Upanishad


We have a popular sloka of Anjaneya thus,

Tachyon .Image.gif
Tachyon. Because a tachyon would always move faster than light, it would not be possible to see it approaching. After a tachyon has passed nearby, we would be able to see two images of it, appearing and departing in opposite directions. The black line is the shock wave of Cherenkov radiation, shown only in one moment of time. This double image effect is most prominent for an observer located directly in the path of a superluminal object (in this example a sphere, shown in grey). The right hand bluish shape is the image formed by the blue-doppler shifted light arriving at the observer—who is located at the apex of the black Cherenkov lines—from the sphere as it approaches. The left-hand reddish image is formed from red-shifted light that leaves the sphere after it passes the observer. Because the object arrives before the light, the observer sees nothing until the sphere starts to pass the observer, after which the image-as-seen-by-the-observer splits into two—one of the arriving sphere (to the right) and one of the departing sphere (to the left) “Tachyon04s” by TxAlien at en.wikipedia – Transferred from en.wikipedia to Commons by User:Sumanch..

Sanskrit Dictionary gives the following meaning.

मनोजव manojava adj. swift as thought
मनोजव manojava m. speed or swiftness of thought

Vedas have determined the Speed of Light accurately.

Please read my post on this.

Such being the case the reference to ‘Speed more than Mind’ is intriguing.

Reason is that Vedic people have studied Gravity and have treatise on this.

I searched and found the following answer.

 

Seven flickering tongues of the fire(light/energy).
Those are Kaali (black one), Karaali (terrific one), Manojava (swift as the mind), Sulohita (the deep red), Sudhumravarna (the smoke-coloured), Sphulligini (sparkling) and the Viswa-Rupi or the Viswaruchi (having all forms).
Whoever performs his Karmas (Agnihotra etc.), when these flames are shining and in proper time, then these oblations lead him through the rays of the sun to where the one lord of the Deva dwells.


Chapter II  Mundaka Upanishad.

1. This is That, the Truth of things: works which the sages beheld in the Mantras [=The inspired verses of the Veda] were in the Treta [=The second of the four ages] manifoldly extended. Works do ye perform religiously with one passion for the Truth; this is your road to the heaven of good deeds.

2. When the fire of the sacrifice is kindled and the flame sways and quivers, then between the double pourings of butter cast therein with faith thy offerings.

3. For he whose altar-fires are empty of the new-moon offering and the full-moon offering and the offering of the rains and the offering of the first fruits, or unfed, or fed without right ritual, or without guests or without the dues to the Vishwa-Devas, destroys his hope of all the seven worlds.

4. Kali, the black, Karali, the terrible, Manojava, thought-swift, Sulohita, blood-red, Sudhumravarna, smoke-hued, Sphulingini, scattering sparks, Vishwaruchi, the all-beautiful, these are the seven swaying tongues of the fire.

5. He who in these when they are blazing bright performs the rites, in their due season, him his fires of sacrifice take and they lead him, these rays of the sun, there where the Overlord of the Gods is the Inhabitant on high.

6. “Come with us”, “Come with us”, they cry to him, these luminous fires of sacrifice and they bear him by the rays of the sun speaking to him pleasant words of sweetness, doing him homage, “This is your holy world of Brahman and the heaven of your righteousness.”

The properties described for Manojava are same as for Tachyon, which travels faster than light and its speed is equal to that of human mind.
In modern science, Tachyon, (pron.: /ˈtæki.ɒn/) (term in use since 1967) is a hypothetical faster-than-light particle.
In the 1967 paper that coined the term, Gerald Feinberg proposed that tachyonic particles could be quanta of a quantum field with negative squared mass.”

Gravity does affect the time.

That is the reason why satellites are adjusted

The difference on a GPS satellite can be quite significant and hence the clocks on these satellites are constantly readjusted.

A black hole has enormous gravitational pull, strong enough to even hold the light in it, and nothing can escape a black hole.  Escape velocity from the weak earth’s gravity is about 7 miles per second.  Light travels at about 186282 miles per second.  Even this velocity is not enough to get light out of the gravitational pull of a black hole.  The only thing we know that is capable of travelling faster than light, is a quantum particle called Tachyon.  Even this has been described in the Mandukya Upanishad as Manojava.  The characteristics of both objects and particles are uncannily similar. Varahamihira described what could only be a gravitational force when he said, that there must be a force that keeps object stuck on the surface of the earth.

Tachyon.

A tachyon /ˈtæki.ɒn/ or tachyonic particle is a hypothetical particle that always moves faster than light. The word comes from theGreek: ταχύ or tachy /ˈtɑːxi/, meaning “swift, quick, fast, rapid”, and was coined in 1967 by Gerald Feinberg.[1] The complementary particle types are called luxon (always moving at the speed of light) and bradyon (always moving slower than light), which both exist. The possibility of particles moving faster than light was first proposed by Bilaniuk, Deshpande, and George Sudarshan in 1962, although the term they used for it was “meta-particle.

Wormhole Parallel Universe In Vindhya Mountain ? Ramayana


Indian Scriptures and Epics never fail to surprise me with their astounding descriptions of things that are being visualized , nay being though of as A Theory, in Higher Sciences.

The wormhole, Space.Image.jpg
Wormhole

I have posted quite a few articles on Advanced Concepts in Ancient scriptures of India, The Vedas, The Purana and the Epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata.

Painting of  wormhole, UFO in a Cave, Raisin, Madhya Pradesh,India,image.jpg
Painting of wormhole, UFO in a Cave, Raisin, Madhya Pradesh,India,

Be it Stem Cell Research.Weather prediction, Genes Study, Advanced Mathematics,Chemistry, Physics.Biology, the list is endless.

I have posted articles and these may be found under Hinduism.

Now I have come across a shocker of information, that of Wormhole in The Ramayana!

What is a Wormhole?

A wormhole is a hypothetical topological feature that would fundamentally be a shortcut through spacetime. A wormhole is much like a tunnel with two ends, each in separate points in spacetime.

For a simplified notion of a wormhole, visualize space as a two-dimensional (2D) surface. In this case, a wormhole can be pictured as a hole in that surface that leads into a 3D tube (the inside surface of a cylinder). This tube then re-emerges at another location on the 2D surface with a similar hole as the entrance. An actual wormhole would be analogous to this, but with the spatial dimensions raised by one. For example, instead of circular holes on a 2D plane, the entry and exit points could be visualized as spheres in 3D space.

 

Researchers have no observational evidence for wormholes, but the equations of the theory of general relativity have valid solutions that contain wormholes. Because of its robust theoretical strength, a wormhole is one of the great physics metaphors for teaching general relativity. The first type of wormhole solution discovered was the Schwarzschild wormhole, which would be present in the Schwarzschild metric describing an eternal black hole, but it was found that it would collapse too quickly for anything to cross from one end to the other. Wormholes that could be crossed in both directions, known as traversable wormholes, would only be possible if exotic matter with negative energy density could be used to stabilize them.’

Wormhole , in simple words is like a Bedroll/Bed-sheet/Holdall  which can be rolled and unrolled.

That is if one has to travel to the Pole Star which is about 480 Light years away , the point of Earth from where we shall start and the end point ,The Pole Star, where we want to reach may be held together as we would a piece of cloth and be rolled, thus making these point very near.

Space has infinite distances.

This bedroll called a Wormhole can be used to shrink the distance and by entering into it one can reach longer distances by entering into the wormhole and emerging on the other side in a short span of Time.

Wormhole in The Ramayana.

In the Ramayana, Sugreeva directs his Vanara Army to search for Sita.

Hanuman ,Angada and the other Vanaras, contrary to Sugreeva’s instruction over stayed in the Vindhya Mountains and came across a cave, Riksha, a cavity.

It was guarded by Maya, under the name of Swayamprabha.

There Hanuman and others  became disoriented .

They found, inside the cave verdant flowers and spring, Swans leaving with drenched bodies.

‘On entering the Cave, they the monkeys beheld choicest mansions everywhere made out of gold and silver, some with golden and some with silver domes, while some with golden and some with silver multi-stories, but all are studded with lapis gems with golden windows covered with laceworks of pearls. They have also seen everywhere flowered and fruited trees that are similar in shine to red corals and rubies, and golden honeybees, as well as honeys.

They beheld everywhere diverse and capacious beds and seats that are amazingly crafted with gemstones and gold, and stacks of utensils made of gold, silver and bell metal. They saw the stockpiles of heavenly aloe vera substances and sandalwood sticks and depurated eatables, tubers and fruits. They have also seen top-grade soft drinks, luscious honeys, heaps of finest quality clothing, exotic blankets and sheaves of deerskins. Vanara-s have also observed mounds of undefiled gold stockpiled here and there glowing with the glow of ritual fire’

Hanuman also noted that the Time was lapsing.

Remembering that the deadline given by Sugreeva was nearing, He requested the Lady Maya, Swayam Prabha, to deliver all the Vanaras from the Pit.

She obliged.

Ramayana states,

‘Monkeys enter Riksha cavity, an unsightly and gloomy one, during their search in southern direction. While groping in that dark they loose time set by Sugreeva. Finally, they see luminosity and extraordinarily built mansions, woodlands, trees and lakes. Thereupon they catch sight of an elderly sainted lady and they all approach her asking after the legend of that cavity.

Tara have searched that province in southern direction that is encompassed with interlocked mountains, and during their search there they have observed a wide-opened and impassable cavity known as Riksha cavity which is well guarded by a demon called Maya.

Their eyesight, or their vigour, or their valorousness is rendered ineffectual, and their permeation is just like the directionless air as their eyesight is thwarted in gloominess’

It may be noted that the description resembles that of a Black-hole.

And the presence of birds with water dripping from their bodies in the cave here there was no water body and the existence of buildings made of Gold, Silver inside a Cave and different types of Beings indicate a different world.

Only on Exiting the cave do the Vanaras become normal and find the normal terrain of the Earth.

‘On listening to Hanuman about the plight of monkeys by which they entered this cavity in searching for Seetha, Sainted Lady Swayamprabha becomes sympathetic and offers guestship.
When entreated by Hanuman for an exit from that incarceration, and as the time frame set by Sugreeva is lapsed in this very cavity, Swayamprabha asks Vanaras to cover their eyes and then uses her ascetic powers to transport the monkeys from that cave, which exit is otherwise impossible for any other intruder, in his aliveness.
After exiting from black cave, vanaras find themselves lose to an ocean located south of the Vindyas.

Instead of landing just after the Vindhyas  , they land quite far  near the Ocean, overshooting the Land by a few hundred Miles.’

The legend of the world being rolled in appears in the Legend of Hiranyaksha, brother of Hiranyakasipu, who rolled the earth and hid it , only to be recovered by Lord Vishnu.

Vishnu picks up the Roll and re-rolls it.

Vishnu Purana , in the narration of Mandhata, ancestor of Lord Rama, states that when Mandhata visited Brahma in Brahma Loka for a few minutes after traveling, found , on return, that hundreds of Years have passed in the Earth!

Similar legends abound in the Eighteen Puranas.

The entry and exit by the Vanaras echoes the ‘ Einstein–Rosen bridge’

‘A group of anthropologists, lead by archaeologist Mohammed Wasim Khan of the Archeological Environment Research and Tribal Welfare Society, working with hill tribes in Hoshangabad, earlier known as Narmadapura in Madhya Pradesh made a startling discovery.
They found caves hidden in a deep jungle in Raisin. In one such caves was found an amazing ancient painting which shows a person in a catsuit, a UFO like flying object, and a cylindrical spring like shape (wormhole path ?).’

A word to sneering doubting Thomases about these legends.

Please note that the term Wormhole is not considered proven but deduced and perceived to a Hypothesis and people take it as True without reservations.

Why not the Ramayana, whose date, geographical dates have been proved beyond doubt.

Here you are dealing with some thing far more advanced that your modern concepts.

Wait till you get to know more about Physics when it becomes more advanced.

* The Verse are from The Ramayana Kishintakanda, Sarga 50.

More can be found in Sargas 51 and 52.

Sanskrit Documents On Interstellar Spaceships Found in Lhasa


The vital difference in acquiring Knowledge between India and the West lies in the fact that while Knowledge is  a Positive Concept in the West, it is Negative Concept in India.

Anti Gravity Interstellar Ships of Ancient India.Image.jpg
Anti Gravity Interstellar Ships of Ancient India.

knowledge, in its fundamental form Awareness, is, not acquisition of some thing new and external to us,but the removal of Ignorance,Misconceptions Avidya.

Once the false notions are removed Real knowledge shines forth.

Buddhism and Jainism state the same Truth but there are minor Philosophical differences on this with Hinduism.

Pure Knowledge is Pure Consciousness, Chit.

Please read my Post Vedas on Consciousness.

There are many methods of obtaining this Knowledge.

Patanjali follows the Raja Yoga  in his Yoga Sutras.

He describes the process of obtaining this Knowledge in the first Yoga Sutra.

‘Yoga:Chitta Vruththi Nirodhithaha’

Yoga(Union with Reality) is Cessation of Modification of Chitta.

For detailed explanation please read my post on this.

On successful completion of the Yoga procedures, or even during the process one shall gain some special powers.

These are eight in number.

  • Aṇimā: reducing one’s body even to the size of an atom
  • Mahima: expanding one’s body to an infinitely large size
  • Garima: becoming infinitely heavy
  • Laghima: becoming almost weightless
  • Prāpti: having unrestricted access to all place
  • Prākāmya: realizing whatever one desires
  • Iṣṭva: possessing absolute lordship
  • Vaśtva: the power to subjugate all

Of this Laghima is the power to defy Gravity.

As Reality is One and as are the Reality, the realized Ones, can alter the perceived objects and bend them to their Will.

They can regroup the atomic composition of Matter.

They can make things lighter than air, make things move in a Vacuum.

All these were documented bu Yogis and Siddhas in their works in the form of Sutras.

There was a group of Nine Unknown Men during the period of  Emperor Ashoka, who were the guardians of these.

They were the Illuminati of India.

Please read my Post on this.

Such a Manuscript was found in Lhasa, Tibet by the Chinese.

Read the following.

‘The “Nine Unknown Men” wrote a total of nine books, presumably one each. Book number was “The Secrets of Gravitation!” This book, known to historians, but not actually seen by them dealt chiefly with “gravity control.”

It is presumably still around somewhere, kept in a secret library in India, Tibet or elsewhere (perhaps even in North America somewhere). One can certainly undertand Ashoka’s reasoning for wanting to keep such knowledge a secret, assuming it exists, if the Nazis had such weapons at their disposal during World War II. Ashoka was also aware devastating wars using such advanced vehicles and other ‘futuristic weapons’ that had destroyed the ancient Indian “Rama Empire” several thousand years before.

Only a few years ago, the Chinese discovered some sanskrit documents in Lhasa, Tibet and sent them to the University of Chandrigarh to be translated. Dr. Ruth Reyna of the University said recently that the documents contain directions for building interstellar spaceships!

Flying Machines

Their method of propulsion, she said, was “anti-gravitational” and was based upon a system analogous to that of “laghima,” the unknown power of the ego existing in man’s physiological makeup, “a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull.” According to Hindu Yogis, it is this “laghima” which enables a person to levitate.

Dr. Reyna said that on board these machines, which were called “Astras” by the text, the ancient Indians could have sent a detachment of men onto any planet, according to the document, which is thought to be thousands of years old.

The manuscripts were also said to reveal the secret of “antima”; “the cap of invisibility” and “garima”; “how to become as heavy as a mountain of lead.”

Naturally, Indian scientists did not take the texts very seriously, but then became more positive about the value of them when the Chinese announced that they were including certain parts of the data for study in their space program!

This was one of the first instances of a government admitting to be researching anti-gravity.

The manuscripts did not say definitely that interplanetary travel was ever made but did mention, of all things, a planned trip to the Moon, though it is not clear whether this trip was actually carried out. However, one of the great Indian epics, the Ramayana, does have a highly detailed story in it of a trip to the moon in a Vimana (or “Astra”), and in fact details a battle on the moon with an “Asvin” (or Atlantean” airship. ..

According to ancient Indian texts, the people had flying machines which were called “Vimanas.” The ancient Indian epic describes a Vimana as a double-deck, circular aircraft with portholes and a dome, much as we would imagine a flying saucer.

It flew with the “speed of the wind” and gave forth a “melodious sound.” There were at least four different types of Vimanas; some saucer shaped, others like long cylinders (“cigar shaped airships”).

The ancient Indian texts on Vimanas are so numerous, it would take volumes to relate what they had to say. The ancient Indians, who manufactured these ships themselves, wrote entire flight manuals on the control of the various types of Vimanas, many of which are still in existence, and some have even been translated into English.

The Samara Sutradhara is a scientific treatise dealing with every possible angle of air travel in a Vimana. There are 230 stanzas dealing with the construction, take-off, cruising for thousand of miles, normal and forced landings, and even possible collisions with birds.

In 1875, the Vaimanika Sastra, a fourth century B.C. text written by Bharadvajy the Wise, using even older texts as his source, was rediscovered in a temple in India.

It dealt with the operation of Vimanas and included information on the steering, precautions for long flights, protection of the airships from storms and lightening and how to switch the drive to “solar energy” from a free energy source which sounds like “anti-gravity.”

The Vaimanika Sastra (or Vymaanika-Shaastra) has eight chapters with diagrams, describing three types of aircraft, including apparatuses that could neither catch on fire nor break.

It also mentions 31 essential parts of these vehicles and 16 materials from which they are constructed, which absorb light and heat; for which reason they were considered suitable for the construction of Vimanas.

This document has been translated into English and is available by writing the publisher: VYMAANIDASHAASTRA AERONAUTICS by Maharishi Bharadwaaja, translated into English and edited, printed and published by Mr. G. R. Josyer, Mysore, India, 1979 (sorry, no street address). Mr. Josyer is the director of the International Academy of Sanskrit Investigation located in Mysore’

Universe Size 13.7 Billion Light Years Surya Siddhanta Science Agrees


When one talks of Distances in Space one is struck by the sheer magnitude of it.

The distances involved are so huge that the Speed of Light is taken as the base.

Even this is not sufficient to comprehend and measure large numbers involved.

Hence the concept of AU, Astronomical Unit.

Observable Universe.Image.png
Observable Universe.

One AU equals the distance traveled by Light in a Year.

That is 149 597 871 Kilometers.

Definition: An Astronomical Unit is the mean distance between the Earth and the Sun. In 2012, the International Astronomical Union defined the distance to be 149,597,870,700 meters.(http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/glossary/au.html)

Astronomers have measured the age of the universe to be approximately 13.8 billion years old. Because of the connection between distance and thespeed of light, this means they can look at a region of space that lies 13.8 billion light-years away. Like a ship in the empty ocean, astronomers on Earth can turn their telescopes to peer 13.8 billion light-years in every direction, which puts *Earth inside of an observable sphere with a radius of 13.8 billion light-years. The word “observable” is key; the sphere limits what scientists can see but not what is there.

But though the sphere appears almost 28 billion light-years in diameter, it is far larger. Scientists know that the universe is expanding. Thus, while scientists might see a spot that lay 13.8 billion light-years from Earth at the time of the Big Bang, the universe has continued to expand over its lifetime. Today, that same spot is 46 billion light-years away, making the diameter of the observable universe a sphere around 92 billion light-years

What Surya Siddhnata Siddhantha says.

Saurapakshiya Suryasiddhanta speaks of a mahayuga of 4320000 years, so do the Puranas.

There are 14 universes (Bhuvanas) according to Vedic-Puranic tradition, and our material (physical) Universe is at the middle level. We can see 7 universes at a time in any one direction, but not all 14 simultaneously. *According to Suryasiddhanta 1955885109 years have elapsed (in 2009 AD) since the beginning of Creation. When we see seven universes arranged one after another, we see into (1955885109 * 7 =) 13691 million years of TIME, and into 13691 million light-years of SPACE. Currently, scientists believe the extent of Universe to be of 13.7 billion light years.

 

Divide 13.7 billion years with 10^42 (10 raised to the power 42, or 42 zeroes after 1).

13.7 billion years = (13,691,195,763 years) * (31558149.61 seconds per year) = 4.320688 * {10^17} seconds

This is the largest QUANTUM of TIME.”

Modern Astronomy confirms this.

* One has to know that Speed and distance are interchangeable while talking of large distance numbers in Space.

Agastya Earth Tilt 41000 Years Ago Axial Tilt Milankovitch Cycles


Hindu Puranas state that Sage Agastya was ordered by Lord Shiva to proceed to the South to rectify the balance of the Earth as it tilted down in the south because of the congregation of Devas and people of the earth in the North, Himalayas to attend His (Shiva’s)  marriage with Parvati.

Accordingly Sage Agasthya traveled down from the North to the South and had the Earth’s balance restored.

Is this a fantasy?

Hinduism narrates events and philosophy in two ways.

One is stating facts as they are, if in its opinion we are capable of understanding it.

For example the details on Astrology or the events related to the Ithihasas, Ramayana, Mahabharata.

In other cases they allude to events by interesting legends, like saying that there is Chanda Loka(world of the Moon) to convey a stage of spiritual development in Pranayama.

It is interesting to note that these two technics are followed to denote the same event, as in the description of Sun’s Movement in His Chariot and the description of Vishnu’s Naval Galaxy.

The incident narrated above falls into Allegory , relating to formation of seasons.

‘Axial tilt, the second of the three Milankovitch Cycles, is the inclination of the Earth’s axis in relation to its plane of orbit around the Sun. Oscillations in the degree of Earth’s axial tilt occur on a periodicity of 41,000 years from 21.5 to 24.5 degrees.

Today the Earth’s axial tilt is about 23.5 degrees, which largely accounts for our seasons.  Because of the periodic variations of this angle the severity of the Earth’s seasons changes. With less axial tilt the Sun’s solar radiation is more evenly distributed between winter and summer. However, less tilt also increases the difference in radiation receipts between the equatorial and polar regions.

One hypothesis for Earth’s reaction to a smaller degree of axial tilt is that it would promote the growth of ice sheets. This response would be due to a warmer winter, in which warmer air would be able to hold more moisture, and subsequently produce a greater amount of snowfall. In addition, summer temperatures would be cooler, resulting in less melting of the winter’s accumulation.   At present, axial tilt is in the middle of its range.’

There is another legend relating to Agastya, which states that Agastya crossing over to the South and in the process made he Vindhya Mountain shorter.

I have written on this while writing on Canopus and stated that it coincides with the Migration of Manu from the South to Ayodhya.

Yet another states that Agastya drank Ocean( I shall be writing on this).

Axial Tilt.To understand axial tilt, we employ the right-hand rule. When the fingers of the right hand are curled around in the direction of the planet’s rotation, the thumb points in the direction of the north pole. “Globespin-tilt-23.4″ by Wikiscient, Tdadamemd – File:Globespin.gif – created using NASA’s “Visible Earth” image (in the public domain)..

In astronomy, axial tilt (also called obliquity) is the angle between an object’s rotational axis and the perpendicular to its Orbital plane, both oriented by the right hand rule. At an obliquity of 0°, these lines point in the same direction i.e. the rotational axis is perpendicular to the orbital plane. Axial tilt differs from inclination. Because the planet Venus has an axial tilt of 177° its rotation can be considered retrograde, opposite that of most of the other planets.The north pole of Venus is “upside down” relative to its orbit. The planet Uranus has a tilt of 97°, hence it rotates “on its side”, its north pole being almost in the plane of its orbit.

Over the course of an orbit, the angle of the axial tilt does not change, and the orientation of the axis remains the same relative to the background stars. This causes one pole to be directed toward the Sun on one side of the orbit, and the other pole on the other side, the cause of the seasons on the Earth.
