Yesterday I took my 11 year old son to see the recently released movie Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning thief. Those who follow my writings are aware of my loathing of mass media because of its role in indoctrinating the populace, literally sedating them into a hypnotic state that makes them very open to suggestion. Who does the suggesting and for what purpose for covered in my last entry, Don’t Touch That Dial. As a rule I not do not watch TV or go to the movies unless the show piques my curiosity because of its subject. Mythology, which I believe is the history of past epochs of creation has been a subject of study for me for many years now, and therefore it interests me a great deal to see the treatment that Hollywood gives to this important subject. I am also a student of Science – Fiction, which as evidenced by the history of the last two centuries has proven to very prophetic. That which we are first made aware of through Sci – Fi seems to become reality sooner than later. So the selective movies and TV programs that I do watch, I do so with the intent of analyzing them to see the ‘real world’ hidden in the world of make believe. Mythology and Sci – Fi have a close connection, and that I believe is based upon reality, upon real history of the past. The ages gone by were more advanced scientifically and technologically than our present age, this is the reason why there is a great deal of use of advanced technology documented in almost all mythologies. For instance, Zeus’ thunderbolt, Hades’ helmet of invisibility, Poseidon’s earthquake causing trident, Hermes’ winged sandals allowing flight at supersonic speeds, the Vimana flying craft of Hindu mythology, Merlin’s staff as an energy weapon, the flying chariot of Helios… the list is endless.
As documented by authors such as Erich von Däniken, our world is filled with mysterious objects and structures that could only have been built by the use of advanced technology. Some such structures cannot be built even today, for example the temple of Jupiter in Baalbek, Lebanon with its massive cut stones that no crane on our planet can move. There is way too much evidence that suggests a completely different history of our planet than that which is taught in the mass indoctrination factories that we call schools and colleges. Please read my article on the ‘Ages of Creation’ for more information on this subject. All religious texts including The Bible detail interactions of man with supernatural beings that travel to Earth from other worlds and dimensions. Once again due to the ‘Hollywood’ influence, the word ‘Supernatural’ has come to mean Night of the Living Dead, that we are all supposed to turn into shrieking teenagers just because we might encounter something ‘supernatural’. However the word ‘Supernatural’ really means something beyond that which is natural or terrestrial, beyond earth. In this vast, immeasurable and infinite Universe, for man to believe that he is the only intelligent being out there, that he has all the answers, that is, he has enough knowledge to explain everything, is beyond conceit. We have barely begun to explain all that we encounter in the ‘Natural’ world, let alone the ‘Supernatural’ worlds. It stands to reason that whatever exists in the Universe will be far more ‘Supernatural’ than that which is ‘Natural’, that which is terrestrial; it is more reasonable to assume that the ‘Supernatural’ is the norm rather than the exception. Is that not exactly what religion and mythology teach us, that non – human intelligent beings, both corporeal and ethereal exist and predate man by eons? Who exactly are the gods and heroes of mythology and Biblical scripture if not intelligent beings that may or may not be corporeal, and even if they are corporeal, they may or may not look like man? Take for instance the hybrid creatures of mythology such as the centaur, minotaur, satyr, hydra, medusa and others too numerous to list here; are these all fictional creatures? Does not man not already have the technology to create such hybrids? Watch this BBC report to understand that hybridization is already a fact. If man with his primitive technology (by cosmic standards) can create such monstrosities, why could not ancient technologically advanced civilizations have done so already? Why might not have such advanced civilizations inhabited our planet in the distant past? Why could mythological accounts not be the history of these ancient civilizations? If such is the true history of the planet then it would serve us well to study it and decide for ourselves who these ancient ‘gods’ really were, and what their legacy has been for mankind.
