Mythology = Science in Metaphor
Your Questions Answered
I LOVE TRUTH! MODERN-DAY SCIENCE IS REPLETE WITH WIMPS WHO SHUN THE TRUTH IN FAVOR OF THEIR RELIGION (THEIR SO-CALLED "SCIENTIFIC" BELIEF SYSTEM). UNBELIEVABLY TO SOME, MYTHOLOGY CONTAINS A LOT OF TRUTH! AND I SHALL PROVE IT!
Science vs. Mythology
What is science?
The word "science" comes from the Greek meaning "knowledge". Basically, science presents our collective knowledge about nature. But it is more than that. Because there is so much that we don't know about nature, science is also about attaining knowledge about nature, through the scientific method.
What is mythology? How is it related to Science?
Mythology WAS the science of the ancients, and interpreted correctly will shed light upon how smart our ancestors really were. They knew many things that we have only begun to discover in the past 50 years, and possibly some things that we are still yet to discover. Take for instance the Mayan Calendar. It is more complex and more precise than anything we've every come up with. They knew more about the "heavens" than we do, or so it seems. I shall elucidate more below.
The Scientific Method
Why is the scientific method lacking? Or rather, why are WE lacking?
There is nothing lacking in the scientific method. It seems sound enough. However, WE are lacking in that we do not have the wherewithal to conduct experiments sufficient to prove certain things. We cannot see into the atom (at least not very clearly and not very well). And we cannot go to the sun, let alone other stars, to collect data. So, we are stuck with observation (of what we CAN see) and we have to extrapolate the rest.
Why are Scientists almost always wrong?
The thing is this: SCIENTISTS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS WRONG. They used to think that the world was flat. Well, that was proven wrong. They used to think that the sun went around the Earth. Well, that was proven wrong. They used to think that the atom was the smallest indivisible unit in the universe. Well, that was proven wrong. Why are they almost always wrong?
They are wrong because they make theories based upon observations, then hold to those theories like religious beliefs. SCIENCE IS FULL OF RELIGIOUS FANATICS! There are those who still hold to Newtonian physics (some of which is true, I admit), and there are those who still hold to the old-fashioned notion of Darwinian evolution on this planet, because they have HIDDEN all evidence that goes contrary to their BELIEF SYSTEM (their scientific RELIGION)! [And that makes me very, very angry!]
When a scientist comes along with evidence that goes contrary to the popular notion in science, they are laughed at, ridiculed, and sometimes they lose their job and/or their funding. Why? Isn't science suppose to be the pursuit of TRUTH, wherever that may reside?
Why isn't science the pursuit of truth?
Unfortunately, science is full of WIMPS. I say, "WIMPS," because they are AFRAID of losing their jobs, AFRAID of ridicule, AFRAID of losing grants, scholarships, and funding, they are AFRAID of telling the truth, because pride gets in the way. Until the scientific community is willing to admit when it is wrong, we will NEVER ever find the FULL TRUTH!
Now, don't get me wrong, there are SOME scientific "TRUTHERS" out there, and most of them are WOMEN. I guess only women have the balls to speak the TRUTH! Some examples:
Take for instance the structure of the atom.
In the "first ever photo" of a hydrogen atom (pictured down on this
page), I don't see one proton!
How science is WRONG about the nature of the atom:
It makes perfect sense to me that there would be MORE mass and MORE charge in the nucleus of an atom. You see it's not as simple as having equal charges of static electricity. Why? Because, if I take one pole of a magnet (let's say it is positive) and the opposite pole of another magnet (let's say it is negative), then I gently, slowly move those two close enough, they will attract each other. BUT, if I move them by each other very rapidly, the magnetic force will not be strong enough to overcome the momentum.
Therefore, I claim that science is WRONG about the nature of the atom. Scientists seem to think that is as simple as the charges balancing out. I say, "That's poppycock!" It defies the laws of Newtonian physics (the true ones that is). A force strong enough to counteract the momentum of the electron whizzing around the nucleus thousands, perhaps millions of time per second, is NEEDED.
M = v * m
I see at least 12 bodies (possibly more that I cannot see exist) in the nucleus of the hydrogen atom, which science says has only 1 positive charge. This would make sense, because it would take multiple positive charges in the nucleus to overcome the momentum of the electron zipping around the nucleus at very, very high rate of speed.
I don't know the exact numbers (and I don't think science does either) so I couldn't possibly calculate the number of positive charges need to overcome the momentum of an electron. However, we CAN look at the solar system as a working model.
The sun has a mass of approximately 1030 kilograms.
The earth has a mass of approximately 6 x 1024 kilograms.
The NASA fact sheet says that the ratio of Earths to Sun is 333,000 : 1.
The ancients taught us: "As above, so below."
So, the ratio of the mass of the nucleus to the mass of the electron should be 333,000 : 1 (Should it not?)
Scientists keep inventing forces (such as so-called "strong force") to account for the atom staying intact. They don't even know what strong force is or how it is generated. They just invented it to keep their "model" of the atom.

My Thoughts on Gravity
Since we still don't know the full nature of gravity (i.e., how and why it works), there is a lot of theories that try to explain it. I have my own theory, and if it is similar to any existing theory, then my hat's off to the other genius.
Since the time that I was introduced to the concept of gravity as a secondary student, I have wondered about the nature of gravity. We were told that science at that time had no idea what caused gravity. Thus, the ol' cog-wheels of my mind began turning. "What is gravity all about?" I wondered. Is it truly a constant in the universe? One day, as I was thusly pondering the nature of gravity, my limited understanding of the universe was not enough to formulate a very concrete opinion. Therefore, I asked "God" (whomever, whatever "He" is) to reveal to me the nature of gravity. If you believe in God, then you can accept the possibility that the inspiration came from God. Otherwise you must conclude that I alone came to the conclusion that since gravity acts like magnetism, gravity must be a kind of magnetism. As for me, it was divine inspiration. However, I did not fully understand the answer to my prayer at the time. For, then, I thought, "Wait a minute? Only iron, cobalt and nickel have magnetic properties; and yet, ALL things fall to the ground (are attracted to mother Earth)." So, I put the whole idea of gravity being magnetism on the back burner for many, many years. It wasn't until recently (2013) that I have revisited the idea again; and now I understand the answer. Let me explain:
What if magnetism IS gravity (and gravity IS magnetism), but some objects have MORE gravity (magnetic force) than others? If that is true, then either:
(a) there is NO gravitational constant in the universe, or
(b) the gravitational constant must account for BOTH mass AND material (for some materials are more magnetic than others).
*** My idea would explain why ALL things are attracted to mother Earth. ***
"BUT LEON!" (you object), "Your idea cannot possible be true, because ALL objects fall to the Earth at the same rate of acceleration," you say. "If some objects are MORE magnetic than others, would not they fall faster?" you continue.
My reply to above objection:
Excellent questions! I have an explanation for that. All experiments, such as the one Galileo did on the leaning tower of Pisa, involve objects of picayune size AND MASS in relation to the Earth. Therefore, the difference in acceleration would be SO negligible that it wouldn't even be perceptible.
Let me explain further.
Yes! To us, a tiny feather and a ball-bearing are of significantly different mass. But, when compared to the Earth, that difference is negligible.
Yes! I have seen experiments on Youtube of the feather and a ball-bearing being dropped in a vacuum, and they appear to fall at the same rate of acceleration. (I say "appear to", but I noticed a slight difference in rate). Also, I have seen the experiment on the moon with the hammer and the falcon feather being dropped at the same time. While they appeared to fall at a fairly equal rate, the hammer did hit the ground before the feather. [Watch the video on YouTube].
Two problems to consider:
(1) To most people's naked eye, and at normal speed, there may appear to be no difference in the rate of fall (although I swear I saw the hammer accelerate faster than the feather by just a hair.
(2) the difference in mass of the hammer to feather may be negligible in relationship to the mass of the moon.
I must conclude that the experiments are inconclusive, at best. The human eye is not a reliable tool for measurement in this case.
I would like to see the hammer and feather dropped exactly simultaneously from a MUCH higher elevation on the moon before I conceded.
An Electric Universe
I subscribe to the 'electric universe' theory, because it is the only one that explains why the Sun's sun spots are BLACK. If the conventional theory is correct that the sun's energy is created by the fission of hydrogen into helium (nuclear reactions), then why is the inside of the sun black? The inside of the sun is actually COOLER than the surface of the sun. Therefore, there must be some other phenomenon than nuclear fission.
4 States of Matter? or Are there 5 States of Matter?
Let's look at what we know. Text books now teach that there are 4 (not 3) states of matter: solid, liquid, gas, plasma. When you make fire, you are converting solid and/or liquid into a plasma. A plasma is a state of matter where the atoms become highly excited ions. Ions are ELECTRICAL! They carry positive and negative charges, but they enter into such an "excited" state, that they cannot be "bound". They have too much energy to be bound together in molecules. So, in one's fireplace, it is theoretically possible to see all four states of matter at once: solid and liquid in the wood, gas in the smoke, and plasma in the fire. But wait! There is one more state of matter!
In reality, there are FIVE (not four) states of matter. Let me explain. Science has proven (and I don't have time to give you the facts, but you can look it up on the internet), that matter can be transformed into energy and vice versa. I think that it is pretty safe to say that modern-day scientists are fully aware that matter IS energy and energy IS matter. [ That explains the dual properties of light: photon particle and wave (pulse) properties]. Theoretically, if one could slow down a photo, it would become matter.
So, the 5 states of matter are: solid, liquid, gas, plasma, and energy.
More Details on Atomic Structure
"As above, so below" (with a twist)
The ancient "Hermetics" taught us "as above, so below". Why don't we listen? I'll tell you why we don't listen, because we can't believe that they were smarter than we are. What if the ancients were on to something? [We can speculate till the cows come home about HOW they came upon their knowledge (science), but that would do us no good]. Furthermore, how is it that we THINK we know more about the workings of an atom, than we do about our own solar system? [We actually DON'T KNOW what the atom is like; scientists have never actually see one, well not until 2013. On May 28, 2013, Fox News published the "first ever photograph inside an hydrogen atom". And does it look like the models we've all seen in our science classes? Not really.
The Atom (a mini solar system with opposite polarity)
This is Leon's Theory. "As above, so below," right? Yes and no. The solar system in it's basic design is the same as the design of the atom. However, the polarities are opposite!
I can prove that the Earth is a giant proton. Lightning is electricity, right? Electricity is negatively charged, right? Where is lightning attracted? To Earth! That means that the Earth must be positively charged! The Earth must be a giant proton.
According to Electric Universe Theory, which has been discussed by scientists for at least a century, the sun is a ball of plasma. Plasma is highly excited ions. The majority of those ions must be negatively charged, making the sun a giant electron.
This fits into my theory about gravity also being electro-magnetic.
Mainstream Science's Explanation of the Atom:
The atom is described (by main-stream science) as having four forces that keep it together. They are as follows:
(1) STRONG FORCE: which keeps the protons in the nucleus together, like a "glue". Nobody can explain what, how, or why. It is merely postulated that it must exist. There must be SOMETHING that keeps all those positively charged particles from repelling each other. Nobody knows what it is, but it must be there. (I know, crazy, huh?) [Possibly the neutron is the "glue", but if so, the neutron must be the source of the strong force, which is what exactly? Gravity?] And if the Hydrogen atom (pictured above) is supposed to have only ONE proton, why are there at least 12 bodies in the nucleus?
LEON'S COMMENT: According to conventional science, the nucleus of the Hydrogen atom contains one proton with a single positive charge equal to the negative charge of the electron a minute fraction of it's size. THIS BOGGLES the MIND of any LOGICAL thinker. Where do they get those scientists anyways? I am no rocket scientist, but I know better. The photo above proves that I am right and conventional science is wrong. One can clearly see at least 12 spherical objects in the nucleus of the Hydrogen atom (and some may be hidden). What are those objects? I maintain that they are miniature suns. (As above so below). And my guess is that there are a lot more electrons (mini planets) going around those suns than merely one electron. And my educated guess is that the charge of a minute electron is NOT equal to the charge of a much bigger proton.
(2) WEAK FORCE: is the hypothetical force which keeps the neutron from decaying into one proton and one electron. Okay, so, scientists found that the amount of mass in the nuclei of bigger atoms was MORE than the appropriate number of protons would account for, so what did they do? They invented neutrons. (Yeah, I know! "If the piece of the puzzle doesn't fit, we'll make our own piece of the puzzle and make it fit." Crazy, huh?)
LEON'S COMMENT: Neutron? Has anyone actually ever seen a neutron? I don't think so. It's all hypothetical science. It's not hard science. It is non-science and some would go so far as to say it is non-sense.
(3) GRAVITATIONAL FORCE: This is considered to be the weakest of all the forces working in the atom, but since Newton's Law of Gravitation claims that ALL objects attract ALL other objects (despite charge), then scientists had to put that in there, didn't they?
LEON'S COMMENT: My model of the atom says that gravity IS electro-magnetism. More on that later.
(4) ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCE: This is the force that keeps the electrons in orbit around the proton-rich nucleus. (This is in addition to gravity, but stronger than gravity).
LEON'S COMMENT: My model of the atom says that electo-magnetic force IS gravity; AND, there is ONLY gravity. HOWEVER, gravity (electro-magnetic force) is not constant, based upon mass alone; it is also based upon the type of matter (material). To further extrapolate, it boggles the mind that one could be so simple as to think that all protons and/or neutrons are composed of exactly the same matter and therefore exert exactly the same force (whatever that force may be).
Basically, what I'm saying is that as complicated as the solar system is, so is the atom.
We know that electricity can be made with magnets. We also know that electricity can make magnets! Clearly, there is an inherent relationship between electricity and magnetism. And, isn't it interesting that scientists call the LIGHT spectrum the "Electro-Magnetic Spectrum" ???? To further extrapolate, isn't it interesting that scientist acknowledge that matter is merely energy with a lower rate of vibration than energy? In essence, matter IS energy and energy IS matter. Haven't we proven that already?
WHAT is an "energy wave" really?
It took me a long time to realize that when scientists talk about "waves" of energy, they are really talking about a pulse of energy--a pulse that weakens and strengthens over a given time (frequency of the pulse). I was thrown off for many, many years by the term "wave", thinking of ocean waves. In reality, ocean waves are a totally different phenomenon with no relationship or similarity to actual energy pulses.
If you think in terms of pulses of energy, it makes a lot more sense. Yes, sure, we depict those pulses in wave-form, but that is merely to show the amplitude of the pulse.
PROOF THAT ENERGY DOES HAVE MASS
Scientists now tell us that light can be bent due to gravity. (Google it). It's true. Scientists are saying that Newton must have been wrong, because light is affected by gravity and Newtonian physics says that light has no mass. [Remember that Newton said that the more the mass the stronger the force of gravity]. Newton explained Galileo's experiment by saying that there is an inverse relationship between the inertia that needs to be overcome by gravity and the force of gravity, in affect, canceling each other out and all objects are attracted at the same rate of acceleration. However, according to Newton's equations, 0 mass would mean 0 gravity.
What if energy DOES have mass? It has to have mass!, but it is traveling at such fast speeds that it bears incredible amount of inertia. Thus, it would require at great amount of gravitational force to overcome that inertia, such as say....a black hole! (or a "singularity").
Whoa! Right? Energy has mass??????
Sure! Why not? If energy is merely matter at a higher rate of vibration (higher frequency), then it stands to reason that being the same thing, it must have the same properties (i.e., mass).
An Experiment to prove that MATTER can be converted into ENERGY (and therefore ENERGY HAS MASS)
Take a flame. It is a plasma right?
The gas in a lighter, for example, has mass....quantifiable mass. If we created a closed system, wherein we lit a lighter. The gas is converted into a plasma, by the introduction of heat energy. As the plasma cools, it turns into smoke (another gas), and as the smoke cools, it turns into soot (a solid) on the sides, top, and perhaps even bottom of the container. If we measured the mass of the system before and after lighting the lighter, I'd bet we would see a difference. The system would have lost mass. Where did it go? It was converted into light and heat energy. This would prove that energy has mass.
Also, I remember reading in my science book about radioactive decay and how some of the mass of the atoms were converted into gamma radiation. This PROVES without a shade of doubt that energy HAS mass, because mass cannot just dissipate into thin air. Mass is a constant in the universe. Mass cannot be created or destroyed.
Now that I think about it, with all that we know (in science), how can scientists logically say that energy has no mass????
What Did The Ancients Say (About the atom and light)?
Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BC, the atom (anu or aṇor) is mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 8, Verse 9):
Translation: One meditates on the omniscient, primordial, the controller, smaller than the atom, yet the maintainer of everything; whose form is inconceivable, resplendent like the sun and totally transcendental to material nature.
"He is the Knower of the Unseen, Whom not an atom's weight eludes, either in the heavens or in the earth; nor is there anything smaller or larger than that which is not in a Clear Book." (Qur'an, 34:3)
"Not even an atom's weight eludes your Lord, either on earth or in heaven. Nor is there anything smaller than that, or larger, which is not in a Clear Book." (Qur'an, 10:61)
Mormon (LDS) Writings:
"He that ascended up on high, as also he descended below all things, in that he comprehended all things, that he might be in all and through all things, the light of truth; Which truth shineth. This is the light of Christ. As also he is in the sun, and the light of the sun, and the power thereof by which it was made. As also he is in the moon, and is the light of the moon, and the power thereof by which it was made; As also the light of the stars, and the power thereof by which they were made; And the earth also, and the power thereof, even the earth upon which you stand. And the light which shineth, which giveth you light, is through him who enlighteneth your eyes, which is the same light that quickeneth your understandings; Which light proceedeth forth from the presence of God to fill the immensity of space—The light which is in all things, which giveth life to all things, which is the law by which all things are governed, even the power of God who sitteth upon his throne, who is in the bosom of eternity, who is in the midst of all things." (D&C 88:6-13)
1. T'is true without lying, certain & most true.
"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that
God is light, and in him is no darkness at all."
Conclusions (up to this point)
"All things arose by one thing; The sun is it's father" (Hermetic writings).... That sounds like light to me. Light is the source of all things. God is light. Light is God. Therefore, God [light] created all things, including the atom and its subatomic particles.
As above, so below. As in the solar system, so it is in the atom.
I can't prove it with hard data, but I have proven it with logic:
LEON'S PROOF of the "God Particle"
Postulate: GOD is LIGHT (I John 1:5).
1. If GOD is LIGHT (I John 1:5) and if GOD is the creator of the physical universe (GENESIS), then LIGHT is the creator of the physical universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2. If LIGHT is the creator of the physical universe, then the PHOTON is the "God particle" (and NOT the Higgs-Boson).
3. If the PHOTON is the "God particle", then all things are made of PHOTONS (all things = energy and matter).
4. If all things are made of PHOTONS, then all things must be also powered by PHOTONS.
5. If all things are powered by PHOTONS, then electro-magnetic energy must be of/from PHOTONS.
6. Furthermore, if all things are powered by PHOTONS, then gravitational force must be of/from PHOTONS as well.
7. If both electro-magnetic force and gravitational force have the same source, they could actually be the same form of energy.
8. If gravity is electro-magnetic force, then all things are magnetic (to some degree or another).
Evidence (presented above) for my assertion that all things are magnetic (to one degree or another) is that not all magnets are equal (in the amount of force that they exert per unit of mass).
But, also, those who've been delving into the science of anti-gravity, have been using electro-magnetic fields to counteract the force of gravity with some success. Take Berkhard Heim for example. He seemed to think that one could fight the proverbial fire with fire. Heim Theory suggests using electro-magnetic fields to overcome gravity.
HOW WOULD ANTI-GRAVITY WORK?
Well, electricity works upon negative and positive charges. Since lightning (electricity from the clouds) is attracted to the Earth, and we know that electricity is negatively charged; Then, we can safely conclude that the Earth is a giant proton (And the Sun must be a giant electron). Therefore, if one could generate a strong enough positively charged field around one's vessel, it would be repelled by the Earth!
All that they've have to do is somehow direct a beam (or multiple beams for stability) of positively charged plasma or energy toward the Earth and LIFT-OFF! Pretty simple concept. However, I imagine making such a vehicle wouldn't be so easy, 'cause I wouldn't have the first clue how to make a positively charged field/ energy beam.
Angels and beings of light probably know how to create a positively charged field around themselves so as to appear "floating" in the air despite the fact that they have mass (as I have already proven with logic).
What Powers the Photon? (And hence, what powers the universe?)
If the primal source of all that is, is a photon, then the photon must be it's own source of power, and in a certain way, that is correct. But, what if I told you that one could change the FREQUENCY of the photon? In effect, one could make the photon less "excited" or more "excited".
What do I mean "more excited" or "less excited"? I mean that the frequency of the vibration of the photon can change. To a certain extent science has proven this. They have seen the quarks actually change color. Oops! I just introduced the word "color" without explaining.
What does color have to do with frequency? Well, in the visible portion of the electro-magnetic spectrum, we have red (the lowest frequency), orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet (the highest frequency). These visible frequencies are harmless to the human body.
GOD is LOVE!
"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." (I John 4:8)
"God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him." (I John 4:16)
So, there you have it!
If God is Light (I John 1:5) and If God is Love (I John 4:8,16), then we can safely conclude that the PHOTON is powered by or "excited by" (or increases its frequency by) LOVE!
The lack of LOVE in a photon, therefore, means that the PHOTON has a low frequency (yellow, orange, red).
The increase in LOVE in a photon, therefore, means that the PHOTON has a higher frequency (blue, indigo, violet)
(Parenthetically, is it not interesting that more and more so-called "indigo" children are being born?)
If we have LOVE (God) for our fellow humans, we fill our bodies with LIGHT (God), and the more LOVE we have the more LIGHT we have. It makes me wonder, "Can we change into beings of light?" The Bible says that we can....that our bodies will be changed (if we are the righteous), from corruptible to incorruptible (I take that to mean from mortal to immortal).
Why is HELL so HOT?
Well, Hell, as we know is down in the LOWER FREQUENCY of VIBRATION (Radio Waves, Microwaves);
and so, we have proof that HELL IS HOT after all, because we all know what happens when we put something in a microwave oven!
On the opposite side of the spectrum...
What is Heaven like?
The Bible says that one day, the Earth will become "new".
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
Although the Bible doesn't specifically or directly say so, there is evidence that the Earth may become as clear crystal.
"And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God." (Rev. 15:2)
You, see, there is no more sea (darkness), because all will become as glass (or clear, crystalline form of a finer matter).
This brings me to my next point. It seems that we must raise our vibrations beyond violet, into the crystal realm, in order to "overcome" the physical body and enter into the "new Earth".
Mythology and Science
Now, I wish to move in a slightly new direction. I want to explain how mythology is not so wacky, as the scientists think.
What is the RAINBOW BRIDGE?
As you may know, the so-called "rainbow bridge" is what Norse mythology calls the link between our physical realm and the spiritual realm. We read/hear that and we think, "Ahhh, what a cute bedtime story." But, what if it were true? [Not like in the movie "Thor", that movie is complete fiction.] I mean, "What if there were some kind of 'rainbow' phenomenon in the link between our two realms?"
I was surprised to find (through years of research) that the rainbow is a part of many metaphysical philosophies in similar fashion.
Let's start with the Christian Bible.
In the last book of the Christian Bible, Revelation, we read a description of the City of God as seen by its author, St. John.
"And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst." (Rev. 21:19-20)
***It seems kind of interesting that the FOUNDATION of the CITY of GOD would be resting on RAINBOW colors.
NDEs & RAINBOW BRIDGES
NDE's (or Near-Death Experiences) sometimes mention the rainbow bridge. I think many neglect to mention it because they may not think it is important. Not all NDE-experiencers experience the rainbow bridge, just as not all experience the tunnel, with a light at the end of the tunnel.
Here are some NDE's that mention the rainbow bridge.
"When the white had completely consumed me, the feeling of inertia ceased. I felt a peaceful stillness, suddenly all was black again. Next, I saw a Rainbow. An enormous Rainbow, the kind you would see in a children's book. I would describe it as a road, or a bridge. It was not an arc like you would usually picture one to be. At first it was far away, surrounded by blackness. As I slowly approached, it got larger. I felt incredibly attracted to it, almost like I knew I needed to get to it. I felt in all of my being "The answer lies over the rainbow". I was distinctly urged by another entity that I could not see, hear, or name...only feel...to 'Go over'."
"One by one, all Beings reached the end of the tunnel, and we were drawn through a doorway of light into a rainbow of colors. I felt as though suspended in the aurora borealis. Specks of glitter attached themselves to the Beings ascending ahead of me, and their forms were bathed in an eerie glow. As I passed through the rainbow I too picked up extra sparkle only to discover that these glittering pulses of light were the souls of the pets we had loved during our lifetime. Their souls were in the rainbow waiting for us as we passed through this gateway of light."
"I never felt any danger nor was I gasping for air as the water filled my lungs. I was at peace. The last time I glanced upward towards the surface I noticed that the light was different. This time the reflection from the sun was more like dancing colored lights performing for me. The lights resembled the colors of a
rainbow and were forming some sort of a pattern above me.
(by PMH Atwater)
"In his NDE he talks about seeing an angel when he cried out for help after having 'died'. The angel appeared and he understood it to be his higher self - the soul. He was taken to a rainbow shimmering light through a tunnel or light-beam. Part of the 'beam' was going to the light and part of it was going from the light. As he was going up towards the light he sort of realized that this 'beam' going up was people dying at that time. The other side of the same light - 'the beam' going in the other direction were all the souls being reborn."
"The water started filling up in the car and I started flying through this tunnel. It was a rainbow-colored tunnel. At the end of it there were two gates. I went through the gate on the right, and then I saw these flowers."
(For more about NDEs, see my NDE page).
Mythology is Science
What do the ancient gods represent?
The short answer: they are personifications of aspects of nature. Personification is a kind of metaphor.
The long answer:
GREEK GODS and SCIENTIFIC METAPHOR
In the beginning, before the TITANS there were the PRIMORDIAL DEITIES.
THE PRIMORDIAL DEITIES
(m) = masculine, (f) = feminine
(f) = feminine, (m) = masculine
GAIA (earth; solid matter) + URANUS (sky; gases) = TITANS
PROMETHEUS = [son of Iapetus (Piercer) & Clymene (an Oceanid)] personification of thought and intelligence
ATLAS = [son of Iapetus (Piercer) & Clymene (an Oceanid)]
personification of celestial mechanics
CRONUS & RHEA (REAP & FLOW) had 7 children. They are known as the OLYMPIANS:
ZEUS (m) = personification of DAYLIGHT
Hera (f) = personification of SEASONS; and, sister-wife of Zeus
POSEIDON (m) = personification of the SEA (AKA: The waters)
HADES (m) = personification of DARKNESS (AKA: The Underworld)
Hestia (f) = personification of home and hearth
Demeter (f) = De (Grain) + Meter (Mother) = [a solar deity, like Zeus]
Chiron (m) (meaning?) = The original centaur; The first ever centaur.
I see interesting parallels with Hebrew mythology, thusly:
Note: We know that Behemoth is the animation (metaphor) of Lights
But, back to Greek Mythology (Science).
Apparently, there were several "upsets" in the history of the universe.
Firstly, Cronus (Cut; The Reaper; Planet Saturn???) killed his father Uranus (Gases; Planet Uranus???) and became ruler in the Heavens (Sky).
[Since Cronus is associated with the planet Saturn, Does that mean that the planet Saturn was at one time the "ruler" of our planet? Did planet Earth at one time revolve around Saturn? And before that, was Uranus (the planet) the ruler of our planet?
Secondly, Zeus (Daylight or SUN) killed his father Cronus (Cut; Saturn) and became the ruler in the Heavens (Sky). Does that mean that another celestial body became the "ruler" of our planet? Could Zeus represent the sun? Was the planet Earth somehow "bumped" out of Saturn's orbit and moved into a new orbit around the sun?
We may never know for sure, but consider the very ancient Mongolian myth, handed down by word of mouth for who knows how long):
One thing was can say for sure, is that the Greeks believed that there were at least TWO major upsets in the history of our solar system. The so-called "Olympians" rule in our current order. Let's discuss the Olympians.
THE CHILDREN OF ZEUS
Zeus was a busy god. He had over 100 children, but we are only interested in a few (9).
IMPORTANT: BLUE: GODS, RED: God + Mortal = Demigod
I maintain that ALL of Zeus's children (at least all 9 above) are personifications of ASPECTS of HIMSELF!
In other words; If Zeus represents the DAY (or SUN), and his children are merely ASPECTS of the SUN!
Let me try to prove it.
(1) Ares [Sun as Warrior]
Ares was the god of war, and so I suggest that Ares is the aspect of the SUN as warrior [The SUN does lash out from time to time in the form of Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and solar flares]. He also have been known to "kill" comets, asteroids, and other things in space.
(2) Persephone [Sun in Winter]
Persephone was/is the goddess who was required by Zeus to spend 3 months of every year in Hades
(the Underworld = below the equator).
(3) Apollo [Sun as Destroyer of Evil]
It is commonly recognized that Apollo is a solar deity (no scholar of Greek mythology would deny it). Yet, his name literally means "Destroyer". Apollo is frequently depicted with a bow and arrow(s). His arrows, therefore, clearly represent the rays of the SUN.
Furthermore, I suggest that what is meant is that Apollo is the sun as "destroyer".
As an example of Apollo as DESTROYER is when his arrows (rays) killed the evil serpent/dragon Python (which I think either represented either a virus or possibly darkness). One of the reasons I think Python could have been a virus, is because Apollo was a healer. Read more here.
For more verification, please see table below:
Hygieia (Hygiene) is the personification of health, cleanliness, and sanitation.
Laso (Les) is the personification of convalescence and recuperation.
Aceso (?) is the personification of healing.
Aglaea (Brilliant, shining one) [personification of brightness]
Panacea (All remedy) is the personification of a universal remedy.
Meditrina (possibly the personification of longevity)
Machaon and Podaleirios were the personifications of surgery.
Telephoros [Tele (far) + phor (bearer)] is the personification of "bearing/carrying one until the end," "Bringer of Completion."
Apollo apparently taught his son, Asclepius, all about healing (the art/science of medicine). So, I suggest that Apollo was the personification of the SUN as a DESTROYER of evil, sickness, and darkness. [Although, it is not inconceivable that too much of a good thing can be bad, for example sun burns and skin cancer can be caused by our would-be loving SUN].
(4) Aphrodite [Sun as Love]
Aphrodite is commonly known as the goddess of LOVE. She is said to have risen out of the sea, possibly from sea foam (as aphro means foam in Greek).
It was the LOVE of the SUN, as CREATOR, that made it possible for all life to exist on this planet. Talk to any biologist and he/she will tell you that life originated from the sea. The SEA + SUN's LOVE was the recipe for life starting on this planet. Sea Foam is the evidence of minute, single-celled organisms, called cyano-bacteria that produce oxygen through photosynthesis, making it possible for all oxygen breathing life to exist on this planet. I think it is a pretty strong connection, don't you?
(5) Dionysus [Sun as Savior]
Dionysus's father was Zeus (an immortal god) and his mother was Semele (a mortal woman). Thus, as a mortal, he COULD DIE, and as a god, he could be RESURRECTED.
Dionysus shed his own blood and gave it to the humans in the form of grapes (which was converted into wine). [Wine = Blood of God].
Ultimately, Dinoysus gave his life for all humankind on December 22 (Winter solstice), and was resurrected 3 days later on December 25 (when the sun begins to rise higher and higher in latitude).
(6) Hermes [Sun as 'Thief in the night']
Hermes was the divine messenger. He delivered people to the underworld, usually at night, as most people died in their sleep at night. He was called the "Thief in the Night", because he would come and steal people's souls at night.
(7) Heracles/Hercules [Sun as Traveler through the Zodiac]
Please notice that Hercules was given 12 labors and notice that there are 12 signs of the Zodiac. Each labor of Hercules represents the sun's passage through one sign of the zodiac, which takes approximately 2000 years. It is called 'precession of the equinoxes'.
So, I present for your perusal, what I've come up with, on my own (No, thanks to anyone else). This is from MY own research. Please notice that the signs of 'precession' (which takes approximately 24,000 years), go in reverse order of the month signs. The reason is because of the reverse wobble of the Earth.
POST NOTE: Yes, I got the idea of the 12 labors of Hercules representing the 12 signs of the zodiac, but he never said which was which. Moreover, I get on Santos Bonacci's* case a lot because he makes up etymologies for words that I doubt have any basis in reality, in effort to support his assertions. So, if you think that I'm stretching to support my assertion that the 12 labors of Hercules represent the passage through the twelve AGES, then I'm with you on that.
Hence, please consider that the actual order of the labors, or the actual stories themselves may be irrelevant to the idea that there are 12 ages, through which the sun must pass to complete the "Great Year" (one 24,000-year reverse trip around the "circle in the sky" called the zodiac).
*Santos Bonacci does a series of lectures on Astro-Theology (They can be found on YouTube).
**I have a problem with some of his etymologies, such as his claim that the
name Solomon is Sol (sun) + Mon (moon). I highly doubt that.
(8) Perseus [Sun as Vanquisher of Evil]
As you probably know very well, Perseus killed Medusa and Poseidon's sea monster to save humanity from the evil ambitions of Hades.
Medusa is remarkably similar in appearance and character to the primordial demon/monster Echidna.
Poseidon's sea monster is remarkably similar in appearance and character to the primordial demon/monster Typhon.
I know that they are different, but the roles they play are remarkably similar.
(9) Helen [as the Sun's Nemesis]
Helen's adoptive mother was Leda (a mortal), but her real mother was Nemesis (Vengeance).
Helen's father was Zeus (Day or Sun).
Helen means "Bright One".
Nemesis was either the daughter of Oceanus (Cosmic Sea), or the daughter of Erebus (Darkness) & Nyx (Night), depending upon the version of the story (and the author).
Nemesis did not want to mate with Zeus, so she fled in the form of a goose. [As the darkness flees from the DAY !!!]. Zeus changed himself into a swan and pursued Nemesis and succeeded to mate with her. Nemesis laid an egg and from that egg Helen was born.
Could Helen be the figurative "offspring" of the SUN? If so, that would make our solar system a binary solar system.
*** Could Helen be Nibiru? ***
The Trojan War could be a metaphor for the chaos which ensued when Zeus [SUN] and Nemesis [A rogue star or planet] 'mated' [collided].
It is science in story format!
Perhaps someday modern-day science will "catch up" with what the ancients already knew.
I hope so.
Now, my favorite mythology:
NORSE GODS & SCIENTIFIC METAPHOR
In the beginning, there were two realms, separated by a Great Gap.
The heat from the fire home went up and melted the ice in the ice home, creating liquid and gas in the void between.
Out of the ice a Jotun (Giant) begins to thaw out. His name was Ymir. (I don't know what it means). Clearly, Ymir was not your average ice giant. It was much bigger. Clearly, the "stuff" from which the universe was created was ALREADY in existence. This is in line with the first law of thermo-dyamics that matter/energy cannot be created or destroyed, but rather is eternal.
From Ymir's armpits came two humanoid beings, one male and one female.
From Ymir's legs came the Jotnar (ice giants) (a much smaller race of giants).
From the rime (melting ice) came a COSMIC COW named "Auđumbla". The etymology of "Authumbla" is unclear. It is thought that "auth" means "rich" and 'umbla" might mean cow.
Ymir was nourished by the rivers of milk that flowed from the utter of Authumbla. This is perhaps the "Milky Way" which all the ancients metaphorically called a river of milk.
The COSMIC COW licked more of the ice and from it emerged a humanoid named Buri.
Buri ("Producer" or "Creator") begat Borr ("Produced" or "Created").
Borr begat 3 sons: Vodin (Wisdom), Vili (Will), and Ve (Way) [My translations]
Alternative Translations are: Vodin (Inspiration), Vili (Cognition), Ve (Numen; Spirituality)
I like my translation best. Not only do I consider the words to be cognates, but they encapsulate the essence of the words' meanings.
THE TWO FACTIONS OF GODS: AESIR & VANIR
AESIR: Essence of Life gods
"Aesir" is plural of "Aes".
Etymology: Wikipedia's article on the Aesir gives the following information:
Possible cognates: Proto-Indo-European word "h2ensus"
which means "life force".
That's good enough for me. I accept that! Two sources verify what I have thought, and that is that the Aesir represent the life force (or consciousness) of humankind.
The Aesir Pantheon includes: Vodin (Wisdom & Light), Vili (Will), Ve (Way), Frigga (Love), Thor (Thunder), and Baldr (Bright Ball).
VANIR: Vanity (Fertility) gods
"Vanir is the plural of "Van".
Etymology: Wikipedia's article on the Vanir gives the following information:
Possible cognates: Latin "Venus" (goddess of love)
You need to know that the VANIR were fertility gods/goddesses. AND SO, I think that the word "VANITY" is a much stronger candidate for being a cognate with VANIR. It comes from the Old Norse word Vanta.
In the Vanir pantheon, we have the brother and sister twins: Freyr
("Lord") & Freya ("Lady").
War of the Gods
There was a war between the Aesir and the Vanir. In the end, the Vanir were incorporated into the Aesir.
Clearly this is a metaphorical (allegorical) war.
It's the age-old war between the spirit (Aesir) and the flesh (Vanir).
Eventually the Aesir won and incorporated the Vanir. I see this as carnality being incorporated into the institution of marriage.
Cute little Myth of Creation
Vodin, Vili, and Ve killed Ymir and created the "world" from his parts.
Ymir's blood became the waters (oceans, lakes, rivers, seas).
Ymir's flesh became the earth (soil).
Ymir's bones became the hills and mountains.
Ymir's teeth became the rocks.
Ymir's hair became the trees and other plants.
Ymir's skull became the sky and his brain the clouds.
The Nine Homes or Realms:
(1) Midgard (Middle Garden) where humans reside [ The physical body ]
(2) Asgard (Aesirs' Garden) where the gods reside [ The mind; wisdom, will, and way]
(3) Vanaheim (Vanirs' Home) where fertility gods reside [ Carnality; Sexuality ]
(4) Jotunheim (Giants' Home) where the ice giants reside [ The Id; (Remember, Loki was from there. Loki personified mischief. ]
(5) Alfheim (Elves' Home) where the Elves reside [ Playfulness ]
(6) Hel (Underworld) [ The Subconscious Psyche ]
(7) Svartalfaheim (Dwarves' Home) where the Dwarves reside [ Industriousness ]
(8) Muspelheim (Fire Home) where the son's of Muspel reside [ The spark of life; The soul ]
(9) Niflheim (Ice Home) where Ymir and the COSMIC COW came from [ The elements, from which are bodies are composed ]
The 9 realms are NOT actual places, they are metaphors for the human body/soul/mind.
Realms 8 & 9 are the basic (primal) components of a living being (spirit + elements).
The Norse "World Tree" represents a Human Being (as does the Cabala's Tree of Life).
It's all a beautiful metaphor for the human being. It's merely science in a metaphor! [I think the ancients knew that, but the true meaning has been lost over time]. It makes for excellent comic books and entertaining movies, though.
A DUAL METAPHOR???
It doesn't end there. The Norse mythology works on two levels: a microcosm and a macrocosm (as above, so below).
Odin and Frigga had two sons [suns]: Thor and Balder, whom I believe BOTH represent the SUN (in different aspects of the SUN).
Therefore, Odin must also represent the LIGHT and Frigga must represent LOVE. (Is not GOD LIGHT & LOVE?)
Loki ("Wildfire") was the orphaned child from the land of the naughty ice giants. He did have parents of course; his father was Farbauti ("Cruel Striker" or "Dangerous Hitter", which is understood to mean/represent "Lightning") and his mother was Laufey ("Full of Leaves" which is understood to mean "Tree"). The imagery is quite clear, is it not? Lightning strikes a tree and wildfire is born! But, to me Loki is not just the personification of "wildfire". He is much more than that.
Being from Jotunheim (Ice-Giant Land), we already know that Loki is naughty, because none of the so-called "ice giants" are amiable characters. In my opinion, Loki represents the continual effort of everything in the universe to move toward disorder (i.e., the scientific principle of entropy).
Originally, my research told me that Loki had three children: Jormungandr (cosmic serpent; representing darkness of the cosmos), Frenrir (cosmic wolf; a real trouble-maker), Hel (keeper of the Underworld). Now, I understand that he had six children
What does it all mean?
It was the ancient's way of explaining science (through metaphor!)
Firstly, one needs to understand that there are two ways of looking at mythology (at least Norse mythology). They are: (1) through the lens of the macrocosm, and (2) through the lens of a microcosm.
Zoroastrianism and Scientific Metaphor
Some people say that Zoroastrianism was the mother of ALL religion. Perhaps that is true. I don't know for sure. One thing is for sure, it predated all other religions that we still have on this planet.
Zoroastrian Eschatology; Frashokereti ("Making Paradise")
The Saoshyant ("The Great Benefactor"), a messianic figure, will bring about a resurrection of the dead in the bodies they had before they died. This is followed by a last judgment through ordeal. The
yazatas ("Venerable Ones") Airyaman
("Healer") and Atar ("Fire") will melt the metal in the hills and mountains, and the molten metal will then flow across the earth like a river. All mankind—both the living and the resurrected dead—will be required to wade through that river, but for the righteous
it will seem to be a river of warm milk, while the wicked will be burned. The river will then flow down to hell, where it will annihilate
("The Dark Destroyer") and all evil in the universe.
(Source: Wikipedia, Fashokereti)
MY COMMENTS: A PATTERN EMERGES
Do we see a pattern yet? It's the constant battle between Light (good) and Darkness (evil). And, nearly every philosophy speaks of an END to the battle. I admit that Greek mythology doesn't really speak of an end, except there is a prophecy of another what I call "upset" in the heavens, when Zeus will be overthrown. However, the NORSE and the ZOROASTRIANS gave similar predictions of the END.
The Norse called it RAGNAROK, when the son's of Muspell (Fire Realm) will BURN the world with fire.
The Zorastrians called it FRASHOKERETI, when the yazatas (Healer & Fire) will burn all the wicked with molten metal.
Fire / Light triumphs over darkness / evil!
The question is this: will it be a literal fire (such as a solar flare engulfing the Earth); or will it be a figurative fire.
I don't know.
Where are HEAVEN and HELL?
Is Heaven "above" us? Is Hell "below" us?
The answer to each questions is NO! Heaven is right here, and hell is right here. Heaven is a HIGHER frequency of existence (hence the term "above"). Hell is a LOWER frequency of existence (hence the term "below"). You don't even have to move to "ascend" into heaven or "descend" into hell. All you have to do is change your frequency of vibration.
In many people's opinions, (including mine), Mother Earth is already increasing her frequency.
Evidence for this is in the Schumann Resonance (measurable heartbeat of mother Earth).
The Hebrew Mythology and Science
I think that it is about time that I introduce the Hebrew God, YHVH, and its relation to scientific metaphor.
The one called "GOD" or "YHVH" was perceived as a personification of the SUN.
*Could this be a reference to a major Solar Flare and Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that will strike the Earth in end times, destroying the wicked?
LEVIATHAN & BEHEMOTH
Both creatures are mentioned in Job 40-41. In the book of Noah, we learn that leviathan and behemoth are animations (personifications) of LIGHT and WATER.
BEHEMOTH = LIGHT Leviathan = water (and possibly darkness)
In the book of Job, behemoth is described as being "the chief of the ways of God." Well, if it is "chief", then it must represent GOD, because only GOD is "chief". In the book [epistle] of John, GOD is equated with light. See: "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." (I John 1:5)
So, BEHEMOTH = LIGHT = GOD.
We know that leviathan is equated with the Devil (Satan).
"In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea." (Isaiah 27:1)
"And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years," (Revelation 20:2).
So, in conclusion:
Leviathan = water; darkness = dragon = serpent = Devil = Satan
BEHEMOTH = LIGHT = SUN = GOD
My Sources: Holy Bible (King James Version) and Book of Noah (from Book of Enoch)
The apocalyptic book of Revelation from the Christian Bible foretells of a time when GOD (LIGHT) will bind SATAN (DARKNESS) for a thousand years! So, does that mean that there will be no night for 1000 years? I don't know the answer to that question.
The only way that could happen is if the Earth stopped spinning on its axis (or slows down to the point of a 2000-year rotation).
And all the righteous people would have to move to the side of the planet facing the sun. (Of course, all the wicked will be deceased).
Hinduism / Buddhism and Science
I know that Hinduism and Buddhism are different. But, Buddhism has its roots in Hinduism.
The Hindu Trimurti:
In Hinduism (and Buddhism) everything unfolds in cycles.
The cycle of all that is (in the material/physical realm) is creation->preservation->destruction->creation->etc.
There are other cycles as well, such as the yuga cycle, and the reincarnation cycle.
What I find interesting is that ALL the ancient religions place a lot of importance upon the "Great Year" (24,ooo Year Cycle, also called the precession of the equinoxes, through the 12-signed zodiac in the sky (heavens)).
Hinduism's 12 articles of belief:
(1) Hindus believe in One Supreme God whose nature is All-Pervasive, while also Transcending the universe. His functions are Creation, Preservation, Dissolution [Destruction].
COMMENTS: So, clearly, here the Hindus recognize that Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva are all aspects of the same so-called "God". That means that the Hindu "God" is the personification of the grand cycle of creation->preservation->destruction.
COMMENTS: This is not dissimilar to my own experience, that there ARE
unseen beings who affect our lives. More on my metaphysics
COMMENTS: This is not dissimilar to other religions that all have their
"scriptures", but if God is merely a personification of nature, then
how can the scriptures be revealed by a personification? Something is
COMMENTS: Although "mainstream science" is reluctant to acknowledge
the "soul", there is evidence, and some researchers/scientists are
beginning to acknowledge that "consciousness" is NOT limited to brain
function. The NDE is a
perfect example of this.
COMMENTS: This has been interpreted by some to mean that the
"effect" comes in a future lifetime. My experience has taught me
that it comes in THIS lifetime. In the HEBREW scriptures, it is written by
the Ecclesiastes: "Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days."
I take this to mean that if you cast moldy bread, you are going to get moldy
bread back (returned to you), and if you cast wholesome bread, you will get
wholesome bread back. It may take minutes, hours, days, or possibly years;
but it's coming back. In English, we have a saying, "What goes
around, comes around." It's the all the same principle.
COMMENTS: What the Hindus (and Buddhists) don't understand is that we
ALWAYS have moksha (freedom). We can choose whether to come back or
not. If we chose NOT to come back, we "damn" our own
progression. When on the other side, we know this. That's why every
one chooses to come back, except those who don't have to come back, because they
have progressed to the "next level" (whatever that is; some call them
COMMENTS: Is "moksha" the same as the Buddhist
"nirvana"? I think so. However, what the Hindus and
Buddhists don't understand is that even those who've transcended this mortal
existence are trying to "evolve" or "progress" to a
"higher" level of existence. When does it end? I don't
think anybody knows. I think moksha is something that we already
have. We have free will already!
COMMENTS: no comment.
COMMENTS: Is this really a belief? I see it as prudent to seek
guidance, but I have one caveat: humans tend to be fallible and
corruptible. It would seem better to me that one seek a "spirit
guide" or "guardian angel" instead of a fallible human.
Perhaps gurus have some value in giving basic guidance, but it pisses me off
when they charge money for their services. Jesus never charged money for
his services. In fact, he fed the masses that came to hear his message.
COMMENT: Clearly the Buddhists in Myanmar don't believe in ahimsa. They are killing Muslims.
COMMENTS: See? I told you.
COMMENTS: That's quite magnanimous. I know of no other religion
that is so generous (except Buddhism and Ba'hai).
108 (What does 108 mean?)
In Hinduism and Buddhism the number 108 is a VERY sacred number. In BOTH Hinduism and Buddhism there are 108 beads on their necklaces, and people are supposed to recite mantras 108 times. However, ask any Hindu swami or Buddhist monk WHY the number is sacred, and they don't know. There has been a lot of speculation from many sources about the significance of the number.
Some of them are are:
9 parts of the human body (Norse mythology; 9 realms of the "world tree"; see above) [10 parts in the Caballah].
12 ages (or signs of the Zodiac) when completed make a "Great Year" (24,000 years)
[I'm not convinced that that is the reason that the number 108 is sacred, although it is a nice idea.]
[That is bullocks! Don't believe everything you read.]
The number 108 doesn't just appear in Hindu and Buddhist religions. Here are some examples:
108 Lords of Tao
So, Leon, what DOES 108 mean?
Well, I did a whole video about that. Why don't you have a look/listen?
It also explains the meaning of the numbers 144, and 216 (albeit you have to infer the meaning of 216).
The Silmarillion (by J.R.Tolkien) & Science
Silmarillion is a cosmology written by J.R.Tolkein, taken from ancient mythological stories, mostly of Northern Europe. It states that
in the beginning, there was a place called "Arda".
Edu commanded the Ainu to sing. The universe and everything therein was created (organized) through sound vibrations (i.e., the songs of heaven). [Parenthetically, this fully in line with NDE experiences. Creation is still going via the songs of the angels and saints in heaven].
And thus began the "War in Heaven" which continues to this day, although Melkor has establish his own kingdom in the darkest realms of the universe.
Melkor was a great and powerful speaker and he convinced many of the Ainur to join his forces and follow him.
SCIENCE of SOUND creating FORM in the UNIVERSE: CYMATICS
Cymatics is a science that was re-discovered in the 1960s (I say, re-discovered, because the ancients knew full well). It very visibly demonstrates how sound creates shape/form/movement. The interesting thing is that some of the forms are in the form of standing waves (such one understands solid matter to be); and other forms are actually movements in circular motion, as in our galaxies, solar systems, atoms, etc. Here is a YouTube video about it. Very, very interesting!
Here (below) is a "still" from the video.
It seems that one is looking at galaxies, but in fact you are looking at sand being subjected to high frequency sound.
The higher the frequency of sound, the more complex the geometry produced.
This seems to imply that if we humans could raise our vibrations (with increased love and light and possibly sound), we could transform our DNA into more complex patterns. I know that this is all theoretical, but it is in line with the prophecies that "righteous" humans will be transformed into beings of light (crystal clear, like glass).
Mongolian Myth & 2nd Law of Thermodynamics
The story goes on to when Ulgen created humans, perfect in form, and with the capability of rational thought AND IMMORTAL, like unto the gods. By this time, Ulgen was fully aware of his brother's plans to undo or destroy everything that he had created, so he created the dogs to protect the humans from Erlek. The dogs (man's best friends) would stand guard around the human encampments and warn the humans if any "evil" came to harm them.
Erlek was extremely upset that Ulgen would create something IMMORTAL like the gods. However, being that his brother Ulgen had created dogs to protect the humans, he had to come up with a plan to get by the dogs. This is what Erlek did:
Ulgen had created the dogs without hair, and they were very cold in the winter; so, Erlek offered to give the dogs coats of thick hair to keep them warm in the winter, in exchange for safe passage into the human encampment. The dogs were so cold, so they agreed, and Erlek passed into the human encampment.
One version of the story is that Erlek then spat upon all the humans, infecting them with all kinds of bacteria and viruses. Another version of the story is that Erlek urinated on the humans. Either way, all manner of disease was introduced to the human world, and eventually death.
The science of entropy (second law of thermodynamics) in mythological form:
Possibly more to come later.
