6.18 – THE GOD PARTICLE (8.15.14)

ANCIENT GREEKS & MAYANS [19d]

The Thracian coast, Greece. At the northern end of the Aegean Sea lie the ruins of an ancient metropolis. 2,500 years ago, Abdera was a thriving seaport and trading center. It was a wealthy hub of commerce between empires and the home of one of history’s greatest thinkers: Democritus.

“Democritus was a Greek philosopher in the 5th-century before the Common Era. He was not just a philosopher, but a scientific theorist. In fact, his great gifts have led him to be revered as the father of modern science.”

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

Democritus was born to a wealthy family and educated by Persian Magi learned priests who were said to control the Fates.

“It was believed that he was trained by the magi, these priests of the East, and that he also traveled to Egypt and to Babylon and studied with the secret masters who had these ancient wisdom teachings hidden in their lineage.”

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

“Democritus traveled quite a bit and, through his travels, learned quite a lot traveling east through in what we call the Ancient Near East, studying with the Magi and studying with Chaldeans who were known for their magical, mysterious learnings and their magical, mysterious knowledge as well.”

Richard Rader, Ph.D.
(Lecturer, UCLA Dept of Classics/UCSB Dept of Classics),
(Author, Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylus)

Through his travels and his interactions with people said to have mysterious knowledge, the young philosopher and mathematician came up with a radical theory concerning all matter in the Universe. Democritus theorized that everything people, plants, stone and sun were made of the same stuff: tiny particles he called “atomos.”

“He developed an early version of the atomic theory. It is an early theory of everything in the world being made up of these very, very small, invisible particles which Democritus then called atoms.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

“Democritus argued that there’s a fundamental building block. Even though we couldn’t see them, that was the theory, the philosophical theory that was in Ancient Greece. This is long before science.”

Robert Cargill, Ph.D.
(Former: Biblical Archaeologist, UCLA),
(Current: Asst. Prof. of Classic & Religious Studies,
Univ. of Iowa)

“When Democritus was talking about atoms, it’s amazing how close he got to what we really know. What he was motivated by was the idea that if you cut something up, the pieces still have the same properties. And so he just did the thought experiment well, if I keep cutting it smaller, then eventually, I’ll have the smallest possible piece, and that’s the atom. And that’s what gives it its properties. That’s basically our picture of matter now that smallest piece is the protons, neutrons, and the electron that make up the atom.”

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

What Democritus articulated 2,500 years ago, is remarkably similar to today’s Standard Model of physics the basis of our search for the Higgs boson, or God particle. But how could Democritus have known about the atom and the forces that govern it? Could it be that Democritus had access to advanced and perhaps even extraterrestrial information about the quantum realm? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe that the answer may lie in an even more radical suggestion Democritus made about the cosmos.

“In his writings, Democritus proposed that there are many worlds and that these worlds even sustained life. Now, could it be that by “other worlds” he was maybe even referring to parallel Universes?”

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

“As we fast forward from Democritus to the more current era, where the idea of parallel Universes have really taken off is the multi-Universe view, where all possible Universes has occurred. This is very similar to Democritus’s idea of making all possible Universes. But now they’re very much next to each other, parallel in space, as well as occurring in time.”

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

Some cosmologists today believe our Universe is one of many, and that the God particle could lead us to discovering these other Universes. Is it possible that Democritus had knowledge of this 2,500 years ago?  And might that information have come to him not only from a different world, but perhaps a different Universe?

“Democritus claimed to communicate with what he thought were parallel worlds. He sometimes would exercise his energy by going into places of the dead and would receive what he thought were voices and information which would predict the future.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“Some accounts of Democritus describe him as having access to magical powers with which he could control the weather and predict natural disasters. He also allegedly communicated with what he referred to as other worlds. And he described images and voices that came to him giving him all sorts of information.”

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

“Is it possible that the priests of the magi, the priests of the Egyptian mystery schools and the priests of Babylon taught him some form of ancient practice that allows the human body to become an instrument to connect directly on a telepathic level with extraterrestrial beings?”

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

“The more that we draw forth in science, we’re going to discover the truths of the past that have long been hidden from us. Yes, mankind has been directed from the beginning.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

But did Democritus truly understand atomic theory and the concept of multiple Universes all the way back in the 5th-century BC? Or is it possible as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that he was simply documenting information passed on to him by more advanced beings?…Clues about our Universe deliberately left for us to discover over time? Perhaps the answer can be found by looking at the discovery of the God particle and its connection to the Mayan calendar.

Palenque, Mexico. These majestic stone ruins are all that remain of the once powerful Mayan city. With its towering stone pyramids and ornate plazas, Palenque reveals the true sophistication of the Mayan civilization.

“In terms of scientific and artistic achievements, the Maya were among the world’s best ancient civilizations. Their advancements in math, engineering, astronomy, geometry were unparalleled in the entire Americas.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D.

(Archaeologist/Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr)

It was in this ancient Mayan city that researchers have unearthed one of the best examples of a remarkable calendar that tracked not only days and months, but also ages spanning thousands of years.

“The Maya were very, very intent on recording the passage of time, so much so that early scholars called the entire culture esoteric time worshippers. They had a number of calendrical cycles. One of the last ones they made we call the long count. To the Western mind, you could look at it as the odometer on your car. It clicks through time, and scholars have a difference of opinion whether it is a cycle that will reset itself or whether it is a system that can go backwards and forwards into perpetuity.”

 – Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D.

(Archaeologist/Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr)

“The Mayans were obsessed with the idea of time cycles and worlds. They believed that we had existed in three previous worlds and that they could forecast or predict the emergence of a new world. That was the purpose of the Mayan calendar, was to pinpoint a specific date and time when one world would end and a new world would begin.”

– 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)

The Mayan calendar last turned on December 21, 2012. Thousands of people from around the world descended on Mayan sites to mark the event. Some, however, saw dire omens in the occasion.

“The Mayan prediction of the end of the world in December 2012 caused a firestorm of prophecy watchers and people believing that it was actually doomsday. But, as we know now, nothing of that nature actually happened at that time.”

  – 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)

If it wasn’t a doomsday clock as many believed, then just what was this ancient calendar predicting? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest it may have in fact been counting down, not to the end of the world, but to the dawn of a new era in human history.

“The Mayans never said it was gonna be doomsday. They simply said it would be a new moment of creation.”

– 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)

“Maybe the Mayan calendar predicted a monumental leap forward, a transition that would lead us into a whole new era of scientific understanding and possibility.”

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

“What did happen was we discovered the God particle, the Higgs boson. So, perhaps what the Mayan calendar was trying to predict was not some terrible catastrophe, but our own very important discovery of the God particle and how we can use this to understand our place in the Universe.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

If the Maya did indeed predict the discovery of the God particle, did they also leave a clue as to where this knowledge will take us? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the answer may be found 480 miles north carved on blocks of hard volcanic andesite at another Mayan archaeological site in Izapa. On Stela 5, there is a depiction of a mythological tree that the Maya believed connected the cosmos and the Earth.

“For the Maya, the world tree bridged the seen and the unseen, the celestial and the earthly. The Mayans believed the tree exuded a kind of syrup or sap called the itz. It had qualities that allowed portals to open to make contact with unseen dimensions. It was the key, if you will, to other worlds.”

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

“The Mayans talked about this type of cosmic ooze that they thought literally emanated from the world tree. The itz actually opened up portals to other worlds. Maybe they’re talking about some type of advanced energy that they didn’t directly have access to, but had the understandings and teachings possibly taught to them by extraterrestrials.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“When I looked at the symbolism of the sacred tree, I got to thinking, what if that sap is the Higgs boson, the God particle? And you have scientists saying that it could potentially lead to time travel and our ability to create tiny wormholes.”

– 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)

“Now, is it possible that we can use the discovery of the God particle and the Higgs boson to understand our place in the Universe and even to teleport and travel through time and space?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Was the Mayan calendar devised to predict the discovery of the God particle? And if so, could this mean that we are getting closer to a reconnection with alien beings that visited Earth long ago? Some Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe another clue may be found just outside the entrance to the Large Hadron Collider with the statue of Shiva.
