Reality is, even after you stop believing in it, refuses to go away.
I read this some where.
This aptly describes the incident I am sharing below.
I have written quite a few articles on UFO,Aliens and the stubborn and unreasonable refusal of the Scientists(?) to have a look at the hard evidence.
Please read my posts under Interesting and Funny/Astrophysics.
After researching Sanatana Dharma/Hinduism, I am of the firm opinion that these things do exist and existed.
Our Civilization is not advanced enough to understand them.
Information I have posted on the subjects of UFO and Aliens were checked for veracity and doctoring of the Videos.Photographs.
The Bradley family mysteriously go missing on a trip along the Great Alpine Road in Victoria, Australia on December 26th 2010. An investigation uncovers evidence including camcorder footage and the empty family car. No member of the family has ever been found…
Indian Philosophy details the origin of the Universe in its Scriptures.
Vedas, unlike the other scriptures do not deal with imaginary stories to have more people into its fold.

Vedas express Truth as it has been understood by the Seers and they do not force you to accept nor they condemn you to Hell if you do not accept them.
What is said in the Vedas are scientific to the extent Modern Science can understand it, as has been proved in many cases regarding what is stated in the Vedas and some are beyond Science as we know it now.
We may have to wait for Science to evolve further to understand the Vedas or we may follow the method suggested by them.
Choice is ours.
What has been accepted by Intuition takes time for the Organs of Perception to unravel.
Experimental verification takes time.
But it shall vindicate the Truth of the Vedas.
I have posted articles on he various Scientific subjects, theories propounded by the Vedas which have been proved by Science of today.
The Purusha Suktha of the Vedas describe the origin and evolution of Nature at the Macro level and at the micro level it describes the evolution of Life in the Universe.
Vaisheshika system describes the details of Atoms
Kindly read my posts on these.
Now Discovery News has reported a Theory by Scientists that our DNA had the codes embedded By Aliens!
What they mean Alien, is open for interpretation.
Alien need not be from The Stars.
They could be from different dimensions of Space-Time.
I am providing the news item and excerpt from my earlier Post that Shiva Linga spewed DNA upon earth.
One may note that Shiva and His son Ganesha left South India,while the ancestor of Rama, Satyavrata Manu left for Ayodhya,and traveled throughout the world before settling in the Arctic and eventually returning to India and settled in the Sarasvati valley.
In their Travels they left their mark in the areas they have covered and The Rig veda was composed in the Arctic.
The Russia was called a Sthree Kingdom, Kingdom of women, Krishna’s son Pradhyumna established a City and one can find more archaeological facts of this nature in this site filed under Hinduism.
No wonder most of the startling discoveries relating to Sanatana Dharma are found in Russia,
Report from Discovery News.
Vladimir I. shCherbak of al-Farabi Kazakh National University of Kazakhstan, and Maxim A. Makukov of the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute, hypothesize that an intelligent signal embedded in our genetic code would be a mathematical and semantic message that cannot be accounted for by Darwinian evolution. They call it “biological SETI.” What’s more, they argue that the scheme has greater longevity and chance of detecting E.T. than a transient extraterrestrial radio transmission…
Writing in the journal Icarus, they assert: “Once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales; in fact, it is the most durable construct known. Therefore it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature. Once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might then be delivered through space and time.”..
This interpretation leads them to a farfetched conclusion: that the genetic code, “appears that it was invented outside the solar system already several billions years ago.” This statement endorses the idea of panspermia, the hypothesis that Earth was seeded with interstellar life. It’s certainly a novel and bold approach to galaxy conquest if we imagine this was a deliberate Johnny Appleseed endeavor by super-beings.
However, there are other possibilities too. I’ve previously written about the far-out notion that the universe we observe was built just for us and exists inside a computer program (with apologies to The Matrix film trilogy). Therefore the idea that some programmer somewhere wrote the genetic code for life in their model universe is consistent with the authors’ suggestions.
Biological SETI inevitably smacks head-on into an idea that is completely antithetical to science: the concept of intelligent design (ID). The proposition of ID is that our biology is so complex it must have been engineered by a higher power.”
In August 2011,A Meteorite Shower took place in Alaska, USA.
NASA, on analyzing it, found that there were DNAs inside it.
From the Indian Sacred texts, it s gleaned that ancient Hindus knew Genetic Engineering, Cloning.
The Shiva Linga initially must have been a Meteorite.
And as it came down it came to earth with DNAs spewing out of it.
It is well known that Shiva is Ugra and his name also is Ugra. Ugra means an acid. D.N.A. is also an acid. Vedanta calls that Hiranyagarbha as Sutratma.
Sutratma means an Atma in the form of Sutra i.e. a thread or filament.
The modern science admits that a DNA molecule is really like a thread or filament.
“In a single human germ-cell this filament of DNA is about one metre in length”, says Watson in his book ‘The Double Helix’.
The Yoga-science calls it Mahan, the great. It is really great because it is present in all the living things.
Its molecular weight is one million, so the scientists call it ‘great’. It has no birth. It develops from itself. DNA also duplicates, that means develops from itself. Mr. J. D. Watsondescribes this as ‘self replication’.
Sankhya calls it Vichitrarupa i.e. fantastically shaped. DNA also is fantastically shaped like a spiral staircase or Helix.
Sankhya calls it Vishvatma meaning the Soul of the Universe.
Modern science admits that DNA is the soul or the essential thing of the living world.
It is named as Ekakshara, the immortal, the one who has no denudation, no loss, no end. DNA has no end, no loss – it duplicates or replicates itself, giving rise to itself.
(I take Refuge in Sri Hanuman) 1: Who is Swift as Mind and Fast as Wind, 2: Who is the Master of the Senses and Honoured for His Excellent Intelligence, Learning and Wisdom, 3: Who is Son of the Wind God and Chief among the Monkeys, 4: To that Messenger of Sri Rama, I take Refuge.
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.
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
‘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.
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.
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!
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’
