4.9 – THE TIME TRAVELERS (4.27.12)

ANCIENT EXAMPLES [10d]

The Mahabharata. In this sacred Indian text written in the 8th-century BC, King Revaita is described as traveling to the Heavens to meet with the creator god Brahma, only to return to Earth hundreds of years in the future. Some researchers believe this Hindu tale may be one of the oldest records of successful time travel in the ancient past.

“There’s the story of a king called Revaita, and he is taken into space to see the gods. And when he returns to the Earth, he finds that many ages have gone by. And it’s been hundreds of years. And this is a kind of thing that would happen to space travelers and in time travel, as well. You think you’re gone for only a few days, but when you return to Earth, you find out that you’ve been gone for hundreds of years.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Like the legend of Chaco Canyon, similar tales of time travel can be found all around the ancient world. In Japan, the legend of Urashima Taro details a fisherman’s visit to the protector god of the sea – Ryujin – in an underwater palace for what seemed like only three days.

“When he returns to his fishing village, he finds that it’s been 300 years that he’s been gone. And his house is in ruins, everybody he knows is long dead, no one remembers him or his family.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

And in the Hebrew Bible, descriptions of the prophet Jeremiah in Jerusalem are eerily similar to both of these accounts of time travel.

“In the Bible, the prophet Jeremiah was sitting together with a few of his friends, and there was a young boy. His name was Abemolik. And Jeremiah said to Abemolik, “Go out of Jerusalem, there is a hill and collect some figs for us.” The boy went out and collected the fresh figs. All of a sudden, Abemolik hears some noise and wind in the air, and he become unconscious, he had a blackout. After a time he wakes up again, and he saw it was nearly the evening. So, when he runs back to the society and the city was full of strange soldiers. And he says, “What’s going on here? Where is Jeremiah and all the others?” And an old man said, “That was 62 years ago.” It’s a time travel story written in the Bible.”

   – Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

Southern Egypt. Agilkia Island. Here, just six miles upstream from Aswan in the Nile River Valley, lies the Temple of Isis. Built in the 4th-century BC, the temple was a center of worship for the Egyptian goddess of fertility and nature until the 6th-century AD.

“Isis became the most important deity which ancient Egypt ever had. She was married to her brother, Osiris, and together they really became the popular husband and wife to which everybody wanted to be like. She is seen as a symbol of life, whereas Osiris is seen as the deity who rules over the death. And so whether you are alive or whether you’re dead, you can always identify with Isis and Osiris.”

      – Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

According to ancient Egyptian religious belief, the goddess Isis was known as the Divine Mother, and believed to be the soul of the brightest star in the sky Sirius.

“So to the ancient Egyptians, Osiris was Orion, that constellation actually was a literal living embodiment of the great god Osiris. Sirius was the representation of his wife, sister and consort, Isis. Together, those two essentially ruled the skies and the life of the Egyptian people themselves.”

– Michael Bara (Author, The Choice),
(Dark Mission: The Secret History of NASA),
(Ancient Aliens on the Moon), (Ancient Aliens on Mars),
(Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies)

“Many ancient cultures, including the Egyptians, Chinese, the Greeks, the Japanese, all had beliefs, legends that our gods who created us have come from Sirius. And this star is known to be extremely important star to almost all ancient cultures.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“This knowledge originally emerged in ancient Egypt and in Africa with the Dogon tribe, who taught that beings of light came from Sirius and created humankind.”

– William Henry (Author / Investigative Mythologist),
(Author, Freedom’s Gate), (The Judgment Day Device),
(Lost Secrets of the Watchers), (The Secret of Sion),
(Egypt: The Greatest Show on Earth)

“It is clear that so many cultures possessed information about Sirius, and they single out Sirius apart from everything else, and it’s got nothing to with its brightness. It has to do with the fact that somehow Sirius is responsible for sending us emissaries who educate us.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Could the Sirius star system really be the point of origin for the gods of ancient man? Or was it, in fact, the place of origin for extraterrestrial time travelers, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? According to astronomers, Sirius is approximately 8.5 light-years away from Earth, an incredibly vast distance.

“A light-year is about six trillion miles, so it’s quite a ways to Sirius. Our best rockets go about seven miles a second. That’s pretty fast, but even at that speed, to get to Sirius would take about 200,000 years.”

Seth Shostak, Ph.D. (Senior Astronomer, SETI Inst.)

“So far, the farthest humans have traveled is the moon, at about 250,000 miles away. Our next step will be Mars someday, but even that is a huge, huge stretch for humans. Six-month trip to Mars, and just being able to survive there without oxygen and the things we usually have around us is a huge challenge. The distances are too vast, and our technology is just nowhere near at level of being able to do that. We got to the moon, and that’s as far as we got. That’s not to say that another civilization couldn’t have done that. It’s just, on Earth, we just don’t have the technology to do that.”

Sara Seager, Ph.D. (Prof. of Planetary Sciences, MIT)

What if interstellar distances were too great even for advanced extraterrestrial beings? Or might their level of technical sophistication be beyond our wildest dreams?

“Simply because it is impossible to us doesn’t mean it’s impossible for everybody, and definitely when it comes to beings out there who are able to transcend this boundary of time, it is clear that they are not subject to time in the way we are subject to it.”

– Philip Coppens
(Author, The Ancient Alien Question),
(The Lost Civilization Enigma)

Do some of the ancient myths and legends provide proof of successful intergalactic time travel, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe? If so, might time travel have allowed passage for alien beings, as well as humans, to and from our world? Perhaps the answers can be found in a laboratory deep underground in Geneva, Switzerland.
