You might think that since quantum physics is a relatively new branch of science this burgeoning ‘New Science’ philosophy is also new. It is not. These new insights into nature and reality are very old but have been masked by modern attempts to characterize the ancient Egyptian culture and religion as primitive.In fact, the sacred science of the ancient Egyptians, best described as a philosophy of Nature’s principles, inspired the Hebrews, the Greeks, the Romans, and the Christians, which led to the emergence of what we call Western Civilization. But for us, thousands of years later, the founding knowledge of our civilization is all but lost. Yet there have always been a group people who have handed down the secret wisdom and the sacred science of the ancient Egyptians: Kabbalists, Hermeticists, Gnostics, Sufis, Buddhists, and Alchemists. It is secret only in the sense that this wisdom must be understood through esotericism and symbol, and it’s sacred only in the sense that scientific investigation inevitably leads to an understanding of Man and Divinity and a unique knowledge of ‘Self.’
This cosmic and anthropic ‘New Science’ understanding of Man puts forth the same principles that were built into the architecture of Luxor’s Temple of Amun-Mut-Khonsu.
The temple was not about the piety of a man, but our solar legacy as the philosophical ‘Divine Man’ portrayed in the great statues of Ramses – the birth of the sun. The temple was (and is) a form of communication, a lesson, and at its core its builders’ philosophy is carved in stone. Amun, Mut, and Khonsu were not ‘gods’ in the western religious sense, but principles that form and explain the nature of mankind as coherently as such an abstract subject can be explained.
The definition of Man and the story of the human experience were built into the temple architecture.
Physically, the temple describes the structure of man, from the importance of the femur in the creation of blood cells, to the role of the pineal gland in the brain. Spiritually, the temple conveys life’s cosmic drama and Man’s spiritual immortality. Amun was the ‘Hidden One’ or the ‘Invisible One,’ best described today as the western concept of God, omnipotent and omnipresent, or, from a scientific viewpoint, the energy field that pervades all that exists. From the ancient Egyptian point of view, Amun was self-created, the creative power and source for all that exists. Mut, which means ‘mother,’ was Amun’s cosmic wife and the mother of ‘the Son’ Khonsu who represented the King.
However, the Kingship of Khonsu was not a physical kingship but refers to a cosmic (or spiritual) ruler made flesh through the principles of nature. Thus, Khonsu the King represents the essence of mankind – the archetypal ‘Man’ – and essence of all who ever lived, is alive now, and will live in the future. Khonsu, by being associated with Re and Thoth, represented the essence of life’s energy and Man’s wisdom and knowledge, where mankind is a consequence of the universe’s evolution culminating in the physical endowment of the universe’s self-perception. In myth, Khonsu was a lover of games, but was also the principle of healing, conception, and childbirth. Literally, he was ‘the king’s placenta
The Western world view has a long history of separating the physical from the conceptual; the scientific from the religious. So together, spirituality and technology appear contradictory. This contradiction, however, is based on a naïve and exoteric view of ‘spirit’ and ‘technology.
In Nav Bharat Times ( A reputed news paper in India ) dated 18th April 1967 reported that in one of the excavation that was being conducted in the Egyptian Pyramid date 3000 years BC and engraved verse from Bhagawad Gita was found. The verse was “vasami jirnani yatha vhiaya” This means “as a person puts on new garment, giving up the old ones, the soul similarly accepts a new material body giving up the old and the useless ones”. This actually explains the ritual of the mummy making and the elaborate burial system in the Egyptian civilization where efforts are made to make the soul comfortable with all necessary things because they believed that the soul will need all these till it finds a material body. Reincarnation in short. Among the vedic people,The Hindus of today, each and every one believes in this concept. This find certainly boost the idea that Egypt was either a part of Vedic culture or was formed by the emigrants from India.
“ on comparing the religious system between the Egyptian civilization and the Vedic civilization we are struck by theie resemblance to each other.The principal of trinity with that of unity, the pre-existence of the soul,its transmigration, the division of caste into priest, warriors, traders, and agriculturists are the cardinal points of both system. Even the symbols are same on the shores of The Ganges and The Nile. Thus we find the Lingam of the shiva temples of India in the Phallus of the Ammon temples of Egypt. We find the lotus as a symbol of the sun both in India and in Egypt, and we find symbols of immortality of the soul both in India and Egypt. The power of rendering barren women fruitful is ascribed to the Temple of Shiva in India is also ascribed to the temple of Ammon in Egypt.”
The similarities of Egyptian civilization’s, science and religion with the Vedic knowledge are even more amazing than the ones mentioned about the Jews.
Specifically,in the philosophical and religious field. The details of the temple worship practiced in Egypt are strikingly similar to Vedic temple worship, including the three sandhya meditations on the sun (Ammon-Ra, the main Deity in Egypt), the form of God as both male and female (Osiris/Isis, assimilated with the Sun and the Moon), the bathing, dressing and decoration of the Deity (with red cloth, still considered in India as the traditional color of cloth to be offered to Deities), arati with the offerings of food and incense, etc. The Egyptian Book of the Dead is an almost exact replica of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which is coming to us through the Yaksa Saivite Tantric tradition of Himalayas, which strongly influenced the Vajrayana Buddhism or Lamaism.
Egyptian priests had a complicated knowledge about the various subtle bodies and astral traveling (as Tantric Buddhists do), and some bits of knowledge about yoga, too. Egyptian priests were strictly vegetarian (not even eating eggs), followed brahmacarya vows and abstained from intoxicants, and went through several initiations in order to practice their service. Meat was only consumed by them in later periods, and exclusively coming from fire sacrifices. (It is therefore very misguiding to say that Brahmins “became vegetarian” in a later period, after detaching themselves from their “origins” as Jews).
They were also in charge of medicine and astrology, and had an immense knowledge about both. Even the temple decorations used the lotus flower as a symbol of purity and beauty. The list could go on and on.
Many ancient Greek scholars (including Plato, Pythagoras, etc.) traveled both to Egypt and to India to get their knowledge. While reading Plato’s and Pythagoras’ teachings, we find exactly the same Vedic knowledge explained in Greek language.
Now we know from the Puranas that at the times of Parasurama avatara, the ksatriya kings of Bharata varsa were scattered all over the planet while fleeing the avatara’s killing wrath. We know that a group of such ksatriyas, followed by their family priests and retinue, reached ancient Egypt and established a kingdom there. Other groups settled in South America, Mesopotamia, Northern Europe, and in the lost continent of Atlantis mentioned by Plato and others. Striking similarities can be observed, for example the pyramids that can be found almost exactly identical in South America, Mesopotamia and Egypt. And which also resemble the large and high domes of the most ancient Vedic temples.
There are evidences galore that Vedic civilization was the precursor of all major civilization in the world. Similarities between the Egyptian civilization and the Vedic civilization and the evidence of the later being the progenitor of the earlier is but one example.
There are plenty of similarities between Vedic and Celtic civilization, between Vedic and Anatolian civilization, between Vedic and Mayan civilization etc. The question is the similarities between one and many.
Major Anthropology Find Reported in India
CALCUTTA, India, Sept. 8 (UPI) — Scientists report they have found evidence of the oldest human habitation in India, dating to 2 million years, on the banks of the Subarnarekha River. The 30-mile stretch between Ghatshila in the province of Jharkhand and Mayurbhanj in Orissa has reportedly yielded tools that suggest the site could be unique in the world, with evidence of human habitation without a break from 2 million years ago to 5,000 B.C.
Anthropologist S. Chakraborty told the Calcutta Telegraph: “There are no signs of terra incognito (a break in the continuum) in the Subarnarekha valley, unlike any other site in India. Some of the heavier tools resemble those found in the East African stone-age shelters, used by the Australopithecus.”
Chakraborty said the uninterrupted habitation could make the site more important than even the Aldovai Gorge in East Africa, the Somme Valley of France, Stonehenge in England, the Narmada basin in Madhya Pradesh and the Velamadurai-Pallavaram rectangle in Tamil Nadu.
Ancient Cities in Tamil Nadu May Be Over 7,000 Years Old.
CHENNAI, INDIA, January 5, 2003: A British marine archaeologist and author Graham Hancock has been examining a submerged city on the East Coast of Tamil Nadu. Mr. Hancock says a civilization thriving there may predate the Sumerian civilization of Mesopotamia in present-day Iraq and definitely existed before the Harappan civilization in India and Pakistan. He has been excavating the site off the coast of Poompuhar, near Nagapattinam, 400 km south of Chennai. At a meeting of the Mythic Society in Bangalore in early December, Mr. Hancock said underwater explorations in 2001 provided evidence that corroborated Tamil mythological stories of ancient floods. He said tidal waves of 400 feet or more could have swallowed this flourishing port city any time between 17,000 and 7,000 years ago, the date of the last Ice Age. The Gulf of Cambay was also submerged, taking with it evidence of early man’s migration. The populations Mr. Wells and Mr. Pitchappan (see previous article) mapped settled on India’s East Coast 50,000 to 35,000 years ago and developed into modern man. According to Hancock, “the Poompuhar underwater site could well provide evidence that it was the cradle of modern civilization.” Hancock’s theory is strengthened by findings of India’s National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), which has explored the site since the 1980s. Man-made structures like well rims, horseshoe-shaped building sites are some of the lost city’s secrets. At low tide, some brick structures from the Sangam era are still visible in places like Vanagiri. The region, archaeologists say, has been built over and over again through the ages and some of its past is now being revealed. Mr. Glenn Milne, a British geologist from Durham University, has confirmed Hancock’s theory. More information is found at: http://www.hindustantimes.com/news/181_132193,000900020001.htm
HYDERABAD: In a new twist to the theory of evolution of modern man, researchers have found two tribes in India who could be the descendants of the biological Adam and Eve who are estimated to have lived in Africa over 100,000 years ago.
Researchers at the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) here say they have with them the genetic `black boxes’ which indicate that a tribe in Kerala and another in Gujarat could be the descendants of the first people ever to set foot in Asia.
The new finding negates the widely-held belief in the scientific community that the first people to land in Asia belonged to a branch of the migratory population that exploded out of Africa over 60,000 years ago. The CCMB study shows that the two tribal groups may have settled much before the Asian branch reached the subcontinent, just before the last Ice Age.
The researchers say the two tribes are the oldest so far discovered genetically and may have landed from Africa in Gujarat, migrated to Kerala and then to the Andamans where they got trapped by the sea and warped in time.
The new theory also establishes that the enigmatic tribes of the Andamans are the descendants of a tribal population of Asia and not Africa. Western studies have tried to link the Andamanese tribals to the African pygmies, but DNA analysis shows that this may not be true.
The Andamanese tribals are short in stature, have ebony-black skin, peppercorn hair and large buttocks, making them a mirror image of the African pygmies. But the new study published in Current Biology dumps the western pygmy model to assert that the tribals are actually genetically closer to Asian than to African populations.
The two tribal populations in India were discovered when CCMB Director Prof Lalji Singh and his team did the first genetic analysis of the Jarawa and Onge tribals of the Andamans. He then tried to compare the DNA signatures with a few of the 532 tribal populations in the mainland and found a match in a community in Kerala and Gujarat. But to his surprise, he found that these tribals in the mainland were much older than the Onges and Jarawas.
Singh, however, refused to reveal the names of the two tribal groups in India for fear of their population being `hunted’ for their genes.
Of the dozen tribes, who populated the islands since ages, only four survive–the Sentinelese, Jarawas, Great Andamanese and Onge. While there has been no contact with the Sentinelese so far, the Jarawas still live in the forest and the Onges have started joining the mainstream.
“Our results show that the native Andamanese belong to a unique group not previously identified anywhere else in the world,” Singh told reporters.
The CCMB finding was the result of the analysis of mitochondria DNA, a genetic element passed down only through women. This showed that the Onges and Jarawas belong to a lineage known as M that is common throughout Asia. This establishes them as Asians, not Africans, among whom a different mitochondria lineage, called I, is dominant.
The researchers then looked at the Y chromosome, which is passed down only through men and often gives a more detailed picture of genetic history than the mitochondria DNA. The Onge and Jarawa men turned out to carry a special change or mutation in the DNA of their Y chromosome that is thought to be indicative of the Palaeolithic population of Asia, the hunters and gatherers who preceded the first human settlements.
The discovery of Marker 174 among the Andamanese suggests that they too are part of the relic Palaeolithic population, descended from the first modern humans to leave Africa.
No archaeological record of these epic journeys has been found, perhaps because the world’s oceans were 120 meters lower during the last Ice Age and the evidence of early human passage is under water, says Singh.
The study was done by Singh and his colleagues at CCMB with their co-workers in the US, New Zealand and Norway. Other Indian scientists involved in the study are K. Thankaraj and Alla Reddy of CCMB, V Raghavendra Rao of the Anthropological Survey, and Subhash Sehgal of Port Blair.
