As I was preparing my presentation for Contact in the Desert I discovered many different theories on advanced technology that was used in ancient Egypt and ancient India. What sparked this discovery was a comment made by Dr. Robert Oppenheimer about the nuclear test at Trinity.

Oppenheimer in charge of the Manhattan project was asked by a student after the Manhattan explosion, “How do you feel after having exploded the first atomic bomb on earth”. Oppenheimer’s reply to the question was, “not the first atomic bomb, but the first atomic bomb in modern times”. He strongly believed that nukes were used in ancient India.

What made Oppenheimer believe that a nuclear weapon was the accurate description of the weapons used in the Mahabharata War in the Epic which match with that of modern nuclear weapons?

He was referring to something called the Brahmastra which was a weapon written about in ancient Sanskrit. According to ancient Sanskrit writings, the Brahmastra was a very powerful weapon that was created by what were called gods from the fortresses of the air. It had to be detonated in a certain area after a key phrase or invocation was given by the user of the weapon. Through this invocation, the user could call upon the weapon and use it through a medium against an adversary.

India is considered one of the oldest civilizations, in fact, much of the ancient history allegedly can be called antediluvian meaning that there are allegedly texts and histories that date back before the biblical Adam and the times before Noah.

The Torah speaks of 974 generations existing before the Creation of Adam by God; these are the peoples that the children of Adam and Eve married. According to Scripture, Adam and Eve had three children, Cain, Able and Seth, who married and had children. Biblical scholars have questioned who did they marry and what families existed simultaneously during the creation story.

Some claim that the 974 generations that existed prior to the Torah may have populated India and that there have been texts that not only talk about their remarkable history, but the ancient scrolls also have revealed a connection with the Gods that they describe as powerful, and that used ancient technologies in order to fly through the heavens. It is also interesting to note that these technologies also included very powerful weapons that were capable of causing the entire sky to burn up and that would scorch the earth.

These accounts allegedly date back some 11,000 years. Ancient Sanskrit texts dating back as far as 6000 B.C. describe in detail technologies and flying chariots of the gods called Vimanas.

Many modern “ancient alien” enthusiasts believe that the Vimanas are basically ancient space ships or flying machines that all accounts say frightened elephants and would push warm air from its underside. Many of these accounts come from a document known as the VYMANNIKA-SHAASTRA where there seem to be diagrams of power sources and schematics of all kinds of vortex engines and gyroscope technology.

One section of the Bhagavad-Gita called the “Book of Drona,” describes ‘magical’ weapons, called “astra,” that could destroy entire armies, “causing crowds of warriors with steeds and elephants and weapons to be carried away as if they were dry leaves of trees.” Another weapon was described as producing vertical, billowing smoke clouds that opened consecutively like giant umbrellas, reminiscent of the massive rising mushroom clouds produced by the Trinity test.

Among the most destructive of the astra was the “Brahmastra,” created by the god Brahma, a “single projectile charged with all the power in the universe. It was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes an entire race. There was neither a counter attack nor a defense that could stop it.”

The weapon produced “an incandescent column of smoke and flame as bright as 10,000 suns that rose in all its splendor. After, corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. Their hair and nails fell out; pottery broke without any apparent cause, and the birds turned white… After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected.

“Any target hit by the Brahmastra would be utterly destroyed; land would become barren and lifeless, rainfall would cease, and infertility in humans and animals would follow for aeons of time.”

The Brahmastra was detonated at the end of the final 18-day battle of Kurukshetra. The Pandavas vanquished their enemy, the Kauravas, with the devastating weapon, but the few surviving Pandavas discovered that there was nothing left to occupy, and no one left to rule. The Brahmastra had destroyed the entire Kauravas society, and turned the region (present day Rajasthan) to desert. The war also marked, in the Vedic system, the beginning of the current “Kaliyuga” age.

What is interesting is that after the Trinity detonations there were glass rocks that were left behind after the unbelievable explosion.

“Trinitite” the glass, also called “nuclear,” “atomic,” and “desert” glass, was formed when silica sand was heated to temperatures above 1,700 degrees centigrade by the blast.

After the Trinity test, engineer Albion Hart noticed that the Trinitite was identical to material he had seen in the African desert decades earlier. He calculated that the size of the African glass deposit indicated a blast ten thousand times more powerful than the Trinity bomb. The similarities were dismissed, as no one believed an ancient or modern blast of those proportions was possible.

Earlier, in 1932, an Egyptian Geological Survey team member Patrick Clayton was driving across the desert near the Saad Plateau. He said he heard a “crunching” under the wheels of his car; unusual, in that he was driving on sand surfaces. He stopped and discovered large pieces of glass in the sand.

The glass has also been found under Neolithic, Sumerian, and Babylonian layers at archaeological sites in Iraq. Is it possible that an ancient civilization prior to the Neolithic period blew itself back to the Stone Age with nuclear devices?

Libyan Desert glass deposits, estimated to be 28.5 million years old, stretch over 6,500 square kilometers into neighboring Egypt. The light green Libyan glass, called “the rock of god,” was so gem-like and crystal clear it was used in royal Egyptian jewelry. Ten-thousand-year-old paleolithic tools made from desert glass have been found in Egypt and throughout North Africa.

Libyan desert glass – raw and carved – is easily available today, but how the glass formed has long puzzled scientists.

The answer can be that ancient civilizations had advanced weapons. However, scientists think differently of course.

They believe that a meteorite hit there however there is no evidence of a crater.

There are many people that believe that the Lonar crater is evidence of something huge hitting the earth in India. Science makes the claim that a huge meteor impacted the earth their while others speculate that a huge weapon was used and that fused glass much like Trinitite can be formed in the region.

There are accounts of the ancient Sumer speaking about so-called gods coming in through a double pillared stargate and there have been carvings that have represented such a feat. It is amazing to think that the ancients had mastered the ability to travel using wormhole technology that we now are hearing about at places like the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

In ancient times there was what was called the Osirus Pillar or the Ta-Wer, meaning ‘bond between heaven and earth.’ It was a machine that was capable of opening dimensions or wormholes. These wormholes carried the Gods to other locales in the Universe and the same technologies were used to summon the gods.

Most people know of the great construction achievements of the dynastic Egyptians such as the pyramids and temples of the Giza Plateau area as well as the Sphinx. Many books and videos show depictions of vast workforces hewing blocks of stone in the hot desert sun and carefully setting them into place. However, some of these amazing works could simply not have been made by these people during the time frame that we call dynastic Egypt.

The very basic problem that arises is that we find at many of the ancient sites in Egypt finely crafted works in basalt, granite, quartzite, and diorite which are very hard stones that can’t be shaped efficiently even by hardened iron tools. For most of the history of Egypt, the tools used to shape stone consisted of hardened bronze, which is much softer than iron.

The mainstream archaeological view is that it was done with copper, bronze, and wooden tools used by Egyptian masons today to cut granite. Others, however, have suggested that it was done with more advanced equipment that is yet to be discovered. For the time being, the balance of evidence seems to suggest the mainstream view that primitive metal and wooden tools used by common stonemasons were sufficient for cutting through granite.

There is one case which some proponents of the idea that ancient Egypt was more advanced than contemporary archaeology would suggest – evidence that the ancient Egyptians used light bulbs. The temple of Hathor at the Dendera complex in Egypt contains several stone reliefs that appear to some observers to be a light bulb.

The fact that no unambiguous ancient Egyptian light bulbs have ever been discovered also makes the mainstream view more likely for the time being. We know that the Egyptians had stories involving a djed pillar, a lotus flower, and a sun barge. We do not however know, nor have concrete indications, that they had electric lighting or electric drilling for that matter.

It is far from conclusive, however, but most experts agree that they have discovered a depiction of a djed pillar, a type of pillar associated with Ptah the creator god and a lotus flower. It also involves other references to Egyptian mythology such as the sun barge which the god Ra uses to travel across the sky.

A sun barge – it sounds similar to what we have read about in the bible from wheels in the sky to chariots of fire.

Ra, the Supreme Solar God was believed to traverse the sky each day in a solar barque, or sun boat, and pass through the realms of the underworld (Duat) each night on another solar barge to reappear in the east every morning. These two sun boats in which Ra was supposed to sail over heaven were called the Atet, or Matet, the boat in which he journeyed from sunrise until noon, and the Sektet boat in which he journeyed from noon until sunset. According to ancient Egyptian mythology he was attacked in the Underworld and battled against.

In 1898, a peculiar six-inch wooden object was found in a tomb at Saqquara, Egypt that dated back to about 200 BCE. The object had a body or fuselage, seven-inch wings that curved downward slightly, a fixed rudder and a tail. It looked very much like the Space shuttle. However, what was it doing in ancient Egypt and how did the design and toy show up in 1898? It wound up in a Cairo museum and was called a child’s toy that was alleged to be a bird.

If the ancients had this technology, where did it go and why haven’t we found evidence of it?

Throughout the Vedic histories are the speculations that Vimanas and the Gods had a subterranean fortress and that there have been bases under the earth for millions of years.

An “inner world” is also referred to in the Puranas an ancient city called Shamballa is located inside the Earth. This city is also referred to in Tibetan Buddhism. The theory of Earth having a hollow interior has remained a popular concept ever since and has lived on throughout the ages.

In fact, South American mythology, Native American mythology, Russian legend, Mexican folklore, certain tribes of India and Celtic mythology all seem to refer to a subterranean world inside the hollow interior of the Earth. Some of them even refer to strange creatures and human looking beings that live in underground bases and have ancient technology, perhaps even the Vimana.

Throughout human history, there have been those mysterious books, artifacts, and relics that indicate that perhaps ancient civilizations had advanced knowledge of physics and these mysteries were revealed to them from extraterrestrial beings.

To the ancients, this technology and advancement was indistinguishable from magic. Alchemy was rooted in a complex spiritual worldview in which everything around us contains a sort of universal spirit, and metals were believed not only to be alive but also to grow inside the Earth. When a base, or common, metal such as lead was found, it was thought to simply be a spiritually and physically immature form of higher metals such as gold.

One of the cornerstones of early alchemy was a mysterious tablet said to contain a vast trove of secrets of magic and the universe and which would go on to become one of the most revered and sought after pieces of magical documentation in all of Western Occultism. Referred to variously as the Smaragdine Table, Tabula Smaragdina, or more commonly simply the Emerald Tablet, this elusive object is said to be one or even a series of rectangular green plaques, onto which are etched various symbols and inscriptions that spell out all manner of magical knowledge, in particular having to do with alchemy and the transmutation of matter from one form to another, as well as the method for creating the legendary Philosopher’s Stone and for manipulating the very matter of the universe itself.

It is even said to hold the secrets to transforming one’s own consciousness and attaining a sort of enhanced conscious state and enlightenment.

While the appearance and the secrets contained within are mostly agreed upon, the tablet has a murky history wreathed in the unknown, which has obfuscated its true origins and author.

One common tale is that it was buried under the Pyramids in Egypt, while others claim it was sequestered away within the Ark of the Covenant or that is was returned to the buried ruins of Atlantis. With so many legends and myths spiraling about the Emerald Tablet, it is hard to say who wrote it or when or where it is now.

Sir Isaac Newton purportedly was very impressed by the knowledge and processes written on the tablet, and it has been postulated that it could have even had an influence on his theories of the laws of motion and universal gravitation.
Newton allegedly spent much time working with the text of the tablet, and managed to produce one of the more famous translated sections, which reads:

“Tis true without lying, certain and most true.

That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below to do the miracles of one only thing.

And as all things have been and arose from one by the mediation of one: so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.

The Sun is its father, the moon its mother, the wind hath carried it in its belly, and the earth is its nurse.

The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.

Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.

Separate thou the earth from the fire, the subtle from the gross sweetly with great industry.

It ascends from the earth to the heaven and again it descends to the earth and receives the force of things superior and inferior.

By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.

Its force is above all force. For it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing.

So was the world created.

From this are and do come admirable adaptations whereof the means (or process) is here in this. Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist, having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world.

That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended.”

Newton was by many accounts actually quite obsessed with the Philosopher’s Stone, writing much about it, and he believed the Emerald Tablet was the key. He also supposedly found within the text all manner of alchemical secrets, which he believed to be not merely symbolic, but that these were literal processes that could be carried out and performed in a laboratory setting.

Did Newton gain any secrets from the tablet and did it indeed influence his work? Did the tablets reveal secrets of how gravity and antigravity work? Was this technological secret the key behind various advanced weapons and tools that were used anciently?

No one really knows. It is all very intriguing, but in the end there is no certainty that any of those who have translated the tablet ever even saw the actual tablet themselves. It seems more likely that they worked with alleged transcripts of the original tablet, and that there is a very good chance that much of the information was changed or corrupted over time and through subsequent translations throughout history.

Some believe that the information they tablets revealed gave way to possible antigravity engines and even atomic energy.

Some say that the Nazis may have gotten their hands on some of these ancient texts and translated them and used the tech for a secret Luftwaffe project. The Foo Fighters used by the Nazi’s were powered by the use of mercury. Some argue that the Germans may have combined mercury with gasoline in order to propel these so-called “modern” Vimanas.

The Nazi’s were responsible for creating the first practical pulse-jet engine, but was it made from reverse engineering the designs provided in the ancient Sanskrit texts?

The entire history of the atomic bomb program is aptly encapsulated in a quote from Albert Einstein.

“I made one great mistake in my life… when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made; but there was some justification – the danger that the Germans would make them.”

One of the great motivating factors in the Allied program to develop atomic weapons, culminating in the Manhattan Project, was the fear that Nazi Germany would develop these weapons first.

Eventually, the world came to realize that while some strides had been made in Germany towards the development of an atomic bomb, they were unsuccessful and significantly lagging behind the Allies in the pursuit. Having fled Berlin to escape Allied bombing, German scientists were laboring around the clock in southern Germany near the War’s end to build a self-sustaining nuclear reactor. However, they were unaware the Allies had managed the feat more than two years previously.

Dr. Robert Oppenheimer was a man well versed in Sanskrit. He used to read ancient Hindu scriptures and had an acute eye for the scientific and philosophical gems therein. His statement ‘ about the first nuclear explosion in modern times ‘ was given after the twin nuclear blasts of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

He was the head of the Los Alamos Laboratory whose job was to bring this nuclear bomb to reality. So in his statement, he is actually referring to Mahabharata. He quoted Lord Krishna’s words ‘ I have become Death, the destroyer of worlds’.

This because he was guilt-ridden about the scale of destruction. As to the nuclear explosion in modern times, he firmly believed that weapons of destruction on such a scale and maybe, even more, were already being used in the ancient Battle of Kurukshetra.

This statement has troubled many a scholar, to say the least, since what Oppenheimer seems to have implied was that there had been other nuclear blasts in Earth’s history.

It is also troubling to think that in the past there was a bit of saucer meddling in the rising of civilizations in ancient history.

It has been documented that ancient history is rich in describing archaic weapons of mass destruction which, over the centuries, have become difficult to identify.

Nonetheless, if the claims made of their destructive potential in ancient texts are accurate, many seem to represent tools that would be better fitted to the arsenal of today’s most sophisticated military.
