6.18 – THE GOD PARTICLE (8.15.14)

A REDISCOVERY [19c]

Known in the scientific community as the Higgs boson, the particle was first theorized by physicist Peter Higgs in 1964. Its discovery confirms the existence of an invisible force throughout the Universe known as the Higgs field. Scientists believe when particles interact with this field, they acquire mass, which slows them down, and allows them to form matter such as planets and stars.

“An image that’s often used is ping-pong balls moving through sand or sugar.  Sometimes they’re pushed down real deep. Sometimes they’re on top of the sand. If you’re on top, you move around quickly. If you’re deep in, you move slowly. And that interaction with this other Higgs particle is what gives other particles their mass.”

Michael Dennin, Ph.D.
(Physicist/Prof. of Physics & Astronomy, UC Irvine)

“You really can’t overemphasize the importance of finally saying there is a Higgs particle and that we really are on the right track.”

– Robert H. Frisbee, Ph.D.
(Propulsion Systems Engineer, NASA JPL, Ret.)

“There’s great excitement in the scientific community because the Higgs field permeates all of space-time. It’s possible, theoretically, to effectively switch off the mass of particles and achieve near-light speed very easily. This could open up not only the planets, but the stars to human exploration.”

“Whether it’s through science, religion, philosophy or the Ancient Astronaut Theory, the fact is we are all seeking answers to the same questions. Who are we? Where do we come from?  And ultimately where are we going? And so we celebrate a discovery like the Higgs boson or “God particle” because it brings us that much closer to answering the questions that have fascinated humanity for thousands of years.”

Scientists believe that the discovery of this tiny particle could represent a quantum leap in our understanding of the Universe. Some have even proposed that it could open the door to anti-gravity technology, travel at the speed of light, and the creation of wormholes. However, Ancient Astronaut Theorists propose that the God particle is not a new discovery, but rather a rediscovery.

Chandigarh, India. This thriving city at the foot of the towering Himalayas is the capital of India’s Punjab state. It was in this region of Northwest India that scholars believe a series of religious texts called the Vedas were compiled from oral stories that had been passed down for centuries.

“The Vedas, according to the Indian tradition itself, were put together in the final form about 5,000 years ago. But these hymns had been circulating in the Indian region for a long time. We do know that not a single letter of the four Vedas has changed, unlike any other texts in the world. So, there was a belief that the text of the Vedas should not be tampered with because they represent the entire cosmos.”

– Subhash Kak, Ph.D.
(Quantum Theorists & Historian of Science)

“In the Hindu lore, the Vedas are not of Earthly origin. They are from mysterious sources. And they are from before time. They are from before human history and are said to be from before even the gods. Major figures in modern science were ardent students of the Vedas. Bohrs and Schrodinger read arduously. Oppenheimer could read it in Sanskrit. Even Einstein and Tesla were known to have read it. It had a profound influence on modern thinking.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

Inside these ancient tomes are Hinduism’s first stories of creation. In one Vedic text called the Rig Veda, creation was said to have begun suddenly and explosively from an infinitesimal point of pure energy.

“It describes this strange cosmic egg that begins as a single concentrated point. And everything expanded from this single concentrated point to form the Universe. Now, if you look at this from a modern perspective, this actually reflects modern science’s big bang theory, where the Universe began as a singularity and expanded to form the Universe as we know it today. To me, the similarities are astounding.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“It’s not like this idea was just banging around for anybody to see. It was a concept that our scientists didn’t start to embrace until the 20th-century. And yet it was already there in these texts that are at least 3,000 years old, if not much older.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“What is remarkable in the Vedas is that they were able to come to an understanding, which is very similar to the understanding that modern science has reached through the intuitions of our great contemporary scientists.”

– Subhash Kak, Ph.D.
(Quantum Theorists & Historian of Science)

Is it really possible that the Hindu creation story from the Rig Veda is evidence that people living thousands of years ago may have had knowledge of the precise scientific process involved in the creation of the Universe? A process modern scientists are only just beginning to understand? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and believe that further proof can be found in another early creation story the Hebrew bible’s Book of Genesis.

“One of the first phrases in Genesis: “Let there be light.” And this is like the moment of the big bang. The whole Universe began effectively as light, as energy. We’re speaking of moments of existence that humans would experience just as a great flash of light. And in that sense, the story of Genesis in the Bible and science converge.”

John Brandenburg, Ph.D.
(Plasma Physicist, Orbital Technologies),
(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

“We have in this verse the description of the very first light, the light out of which all things came, the light which led, finally, to matter, to things of substance, to the Universe itself. In current scientific theory, fractions of a second after the big bang, the Higgs field transformed what had been particles of light into mass, matter into creation itself. We have very strong parallels with the Scriptures. First, light and then matter.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

Similar descriptions of the Universe beginning from a single point of light can be found in cultures throughout the ancient world, from Egypt to China and to the American Southwest.

“In the Egyptian creation narrative, the very first god was Atum. He emerged from the darkness to create Egyptian civilization. The Sumerian, the Egyptian, the Norse something emerges out of darkness. Order emerges out of chaos. Where there was no form, form begins. There is something about these stories that is beyond any one of them that seems to allude to a greater reality.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

But how is it that the ancient world’s most sacred texts all describe creation in much the same way as our current scientific theory? And where did our ancestors get this seemingly advanced understanding of the origins of the Universe? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answers may lie in the stories of the man who compiled the Vedic texts in written form, a mysterious sage named Veda Vyasa.

“In the Hindu mythologies, Vyasa is believed to be a reincarnation of the god Vishnu, and that Vishnu specifically took on a human embodiment to be able to write down these classic texts.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“This sage, Vyasa, who is the author of the Vedas was said to be an immortal. And, ultimately, one of the gods himself.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

“Some have suggested that Vyasa came to Earth to record and impart this Vedic knowledge to mankind. Now, could it be possible that he was in fact an extraterrestrial who came here with the direct mission to bring knowledge to mankind and guide them in their understanding of science and physics?”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Could Veda Vyasa really have been an extraterrestrial? And might he have educated mankind about the workings of the Universe thousands of years before the Large Hadron Collider was ever even constructed? But if so, why? Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe further evidence can be found in the stories of a Greek scientist 2,500 years ahead of his time.
