Spring is here in the UK and flying migrants are appearing in the sky. Over the last few days I've seen swallows, swifts, house martins and chiff chaffs, all arriving from africa. Flowers are also blossoming in the woodland such as blue bells, lesser celandine, wood anemone and common dog violet. The trees are also changing and beech , lime and sycamore are coming into leaf. The seasonal change has begun and everything is coming to life.
India's national epic, The Mahabharata a poem of vast length and complexity achieved it's present form in the second century A.D. It records conflicts between beings with advanced technology, maybe more advanced than today. In one episode a tribe called the Vrishnis which included the hero Krishna are under attack from an army led by an individual called Salva. Salva it says came mounted on a sauba chariot, the sauba chariot could in modern times be described as mother ship. The vrishnis however were well equipped and the hero Krishna took to the skies in pursuit of Salva , where it explains rockets, missiles, spears and spikes being used against Krishna. Krishna however wards off Salva's attack with the equivalent of antiballistic missiles. Sauba however becomes invisible, then Krishna loads a special weapon, an ancient version of a smart bomb. Lastly he releases his favourite fire weapon and Salva is killed.
What are these weapons mentioned in this ancient epic, the story continues with the fearful agneya weapon used by the hero Adwattan. " ..dense arrows of flame, like a great shower, issued forth upon creation..." . It continues to explain the power of this weapon, which eerily resembles a nuclear bomb. Why was this technology around and so early on in history and where did it go. References to air travel are also included in the mahabharata, with the famous vimanas recorded, which could only be UFOs. Did civilizations and many others just wipe themselves out or did they flee to return sometime in the future.
No one knows, but it shows that a lot of significant history is rejected and hidden by certain groups of people. Are we living in a similar golden age to these ancient people and have we learnt from there mistakes. probably not. But when people see UFOs today it is not a new phenomenon , UFOs have been spotted throughout the history of planet earth, like the vimanas, it's like history has been conveniently altered to fit the theory of evolution. How can evolution exist, if nuclear bombs and flying machines existed thousands of years ago. The timeline is all wrong.
I have a keen interest in ancient civilizations and in my childhood grew up in the south-west of England, where we visited many pre-historic hill forts such as pilsdon pen and maiden castle. Crop circles are widely seen in the area near stone circles such as stonehenge and avebury. In particular the most puzzling is an artificial mound bulit 4,500 years ago called Silbury Hill, which is near Avebury.
It's a vast construct, with its base covering five acres alone. Many people first thought it was a burial mound or even contained treasure. Who built these mounds is a mystery and what purpose they had is equally puzzling. Like in America many mounds existed before the arrival of columbus and were built by indians for tombs and great temples. Such as the effigy mounds in ohio which depicted pictures of birds and animals, the reason still unknown. Mysteries of the ancient world may never be solved, but we do know our ancestors existed then, so the anwsers are somewhere inside us all.
2012 is associated with strange apocalyptic prophecies, after the discovery of the maya and there prophecy of an end date to our current world age, in their long count calender. The maya were an advanced society intelligent in mathematices and astronomy and lived in the area in what we now call southern mexico, guatemala, nothern belize and honduras. The mayan civilization arose in the yucatan in around 2600bc and collapsed with the arrival of the spanish led by Hernan Cortes in around 1519. Then in 1562 a franciscan bishop named Diego de Landa orderded the burning of thousands of mayan texts, though three codices survived, the dresden codex, the paris codex and the madrid codex. The dresden codex contained almanacs, eclipse table and a mars table. From this we discovered a very advanced society, particularly in astronomy, where the calculations of a calender year and month are very accurate.
The maya used two calanders, the short count and the long count. The long count calender involves transits of planets and there duration of a world age is 5,125,36 years of which we are comimng to the end of and the beginning of another on the 21st december 2012. We know mayans studied the milky way and gave the dark rift or black hole the name 'xibalba be'. They knew that in the 36 years either side of 21st december 2012 the rising sun on the winter soltice will appear in conjunction with the mouth of the dark rift or Xibalbe be. This is called the galactic alignment. Here are a selection of theories of what might happen on the 21st december 2012.
THEORY ONE - The end of the mayan age - According to the mayan Popol Vuh creation story, mayan gods had three failed attempts at creating humanity. The last attempt was on 13th aug 3114 bc, the next, you've guessed it is 21st dec.
THEORY TWO - the pole shift - Some people believe they'll be a total geomagnetic reversal in 2012, caused by the galactic alignment. Where the earths mantle will slip around it's core, causing east to become west, causing tsunamis and widespread destruction.
THEORY THREE - planet x and the solar flare - While some believe the polar shift will not be caused by a galactic alignment but the arrival in our solar systen of a planet known to the sumarians as nibiru or planet x, which has an orbit of 3,600 years. This arrival will disrupt the orbits of other major planets, causing a massive solar flare, causing jupiters gases to ignite, creating a second sun.
THEORY FOUR - finger of fate - astronomers have found a saturn/uranus/pluto T - square, scarily similar to the one that heralded the great depression on the 1930's.
THEORY FIVE - Technological singularity - when the rate of change in technology goes so fast we can't keep up. And computers will completly take over, making us redundant.
THEORY SIX - Crystal skull - Aztecs, indians and mayan cultutres said there are 13 crystal skulls which are as old as 36,000 years old and when brought together could save us. Made of quartz, people believe they are ancient computers, encoded with wisdom of the ancients, prophecies and teachings of life and death.
THEORY SEVEN - Not just the maya , but the bible, torah, quran and i ching say this date in december is important and beleive we're leaving an old age and entering another, a spritual transformation, leading us to the next evolutionary leap. My own belief is that 21/12/12 is not going to be a worldwide apocalypse, but more of a concious transformation where the change will be subtle, but inside us all. The mayan civilization is dismissed as backward, but is disrespectful to ancient cultures to not acknowledge there wisdom and intellect. There connection to the stars is awe- inspiring and mind boggling, but still people ignore their calculations. Movies have promoted the apocalypse , but the planet has withstood cataclysms in the past, whatever happens I'll be standing outside as the time ticks to the 21st and looking at the stars, imagining the ancients doing the same 5000 years ago. The alignment is here and will come again , hopely this age will be better than the last.

Beyond Earth is an infinity of space, that man has only just begun to explore. One of the greater mysteries and baffling is the phenomenon known as black holes. They cannot be seen and there existence is shown by the effect they have on other objects. They are like whirlpools in space. Any object that strays to near will be sucked into it's dark maw. Where it goes no one knows. Do giant suns and galactic dust cease to exist, or do they travel into another dimension.
Archaeologists and scientists have never been able to explain the dramatic evolutionary and technological leap made by homo sapiens 10,000 to 15,000 years ago. Theres no genetic clues about the doubling of the human brain, there's more missing links than real explanations of our evolution. The nazca lines in the peruvian desert cover an area 37 miles long and one mile wide. Patterns of birds, spiders and fish can be seen from the air. Scientists dismiss them as ancient worship objects, but maybe they are, no one knows, its an on going mystery. In the sahara lives a tribe called the dogon and they worship fish like amphibians which they insist they came from the sky and are called the nommos.
They told the dogon they came from a star called sirius. The dogons weren't the only people visited from above, during pre-history the sumerians called there gods the oannes, which were also amphibians, a certain theme appearing here! They brought the secrets of mathematics, writng and astronomy to the people of mesopotamia, acknowledged as the birthplace of civilization.The oannes god was part man, part fish and they also had a connection with the star sirius. Stories from ancient times and some people even believe the bible account stories of visitors from space, how were the pyramids built, who built the stone statues on easter island the list goes on. I'm not saying these people were not capable of buliding these monuments, but why are ancient stories , such as the epic of gilgamesh and decoded ancient tablets describing visitors from above and all appear fish like in appearance.
It's easy to deny the extensive research into this, some would say conspiracy, but if its part of our history why are we not taught this in school, it's part of our genetic makeup. Darwin's tree of life show we evolved from the sea, so would have been fish like in appearance many, many years ago, whether an alien race intervened is open to debate. But again and again ancient cultures repeat the mantra of fish/serpent gods ruling over the masses, from the mayans , to egypt, to the indus valley, theres a missing link which has never been explained. Did they come from sirius to educate us or enslave us, the anwsers are around us right now, make up your own mind.
Many people believe that human life came from space, developing from viruses and bacteria brought to earth by giant comets. Sir Fred Hoyle, a professor of astronomy at cambridge was the first to identify giant dust clouds that float silently through space, swarming with the ingredients of life. He claims a comet plunged through one of these clouds 4,000 million years ago and eventually crashed into earths atmosphere, amazingly producing plants, animals and eventually humans.
Every summer millions of birds migrate from afar a field as africa and travel as far as 12,000 miles. But how do they arrive at exactly the same nesting spot every year. It's just a mystery. In the UK we have many migrants such as chiff chaffs, swifts, swallows and house martins. The summer sky is fall of these amazing birds and there arrival marks the start of summer, as they raise young to prepare to return to far away lands.
I've been a member of greenpeace for many years and must thank them for keeping me updated on the environmental troubles in the world. I chat to many people, particularly about global warming and can't believe how many people are in denial. If its not affecting them directly they just deny the truth and facts produced each year by charities such as greenpeace.
