Question by Sunny D: How did the ancient mystics know about everything we are learning about today?
When it comes to today’s scientific discoveries of consciousness, non-locality, you name it, how did the ancient mystics, specifically the Hindu and Buddhist ones, know about this already? They obviously didn’t know quantum physics. Did they get help from aliens? Or does meditation just teach you all this somehow? Theories?

Question by ραλπθ: Do you really need to know physics as a computer science major?
Some universities require three calculus based physics and I’m desperately trying to get out of it. UC’s such as UCLA and UC San Diego, gladly berkeley doesn’t so I can still apply there and other UC’s. I’ve taken AP Physics before and the subjects gets really hard after awhile.

What are the pros and cons of not taking physics and just go for the chemistry series? I feel like I have a better chance of getting an ‘A’ in chemistry and be able to maintain a good gpa for berkeley.
i like math and i plan to make up to differential equations. i just dont want to take it same time with calculus based physics. its going to be hard.

Answer by cabbage
you don’t need physics at all, but there’s lots of advanced and different kinds of math in physics. especially calculus based physics, and the broader your knowledge in math is, the better you’ll be as a computer scientist.

Question by Black Christian Scientologist: How could the Hindu Ancients know what Modern Science has just recently determined without instruments?
The Ancient Hindu prophets allegedly wrote that the Earth rests on the backs of four elephants, which stand on the back of a giant turtle, which itself stands on nothing but mud.

These were people who would have to explain what they had determined about the universe in a form that the people of their time would understand.

The elephant was their strongest beast of burden. Therefore they represented some mighty supporting force. Elephants are sentient; that they would consent to stand on a turtle’s back without wandering off implied that something unimaginable (since they are not depicted as being tied up with rope or something) was keeping them in place.

The turtle might be tough enough to support four elephants on its shell and four legs.
It stands in mud which consists of particles fine beyond Human ken to perceive.
The turtle stands on four legs.

Modern Nuclear Physics has said that all existence rests on or consists of Four Entities, which are the Strong Force, the Weak Force. Electromagnetism, and Gravity. These themselves consist of something too fine to be determined by current theory and technology.

The Four Legs of the Four Elephants makes sixteen legs in all.

The Three Generations of Matter- what everything is made up of- consists of:

SIX types of Quarks, EIGHT types of Leptons, and FOUR types of Bosons.

They aren’t evenly distributed among the Four Beasts, but maybe that was as close as the Ancients could get. (Always presuming, of course, that our infallible Modern science can NEVER be wrong!)

Was there a better way for the Ancient Prophets to have explained this?
Don Juan Matus said when Carlos Castaneda showed him the Tibetan Book of the Dead, that their Lamas must have decided that it didn’t matter what they said, so they wrote up a load of nonsense that wasn’t true, because everyone has to *see* for themselves.

One might ask what use Ancients might have of Nuclear Physics.

. SCIENTOLOGY AXIOMS 1-12. L. Ron Hubbard

Life is basically a Static.
Definition: a Life Static has no mass, no motion,
no wavelength, no location in space or in time.
It has the ability to postulate and to perceive.
2. The Static is capable of Considerations, Postulates, and Opinions.
3. Space, Energy, Objects. Form and Time are the result of Considerations
made and/or agreed upon or not by the Static,
and are perceived solely because the Static considers that it can perceive them.
4. Space is a Viewpoint of Dimension.
5. Energy consists of postulated particles in Space.
6. Objects consist of grouped particles and solids.
7. Time is basically a postulate that Space and particles will persist.
8. The apparency of Time is the change of position of particles in space.
9. Change is the primary manifestation of Time.
10. The Highest Purpose in this Universe is the Creation of an Effect.


(a) AS-IS-NESS is the condition of immediate creation without persistence,
and is the condition of existence which exists at the moment of creation
and the moment of destruction, and is different from other considerations
in that it does not contain survival.
(b) ALTER-IS-NESS is the consideration which introduces change
and therefore time and persistence, into an AS-IS-NESS
to obtain persistency.
(c) IS-NESS is an apparency of existence brought about
by the continuous alteration of an AS-IS-NESS.
This is called, when agreed upon, Reality.
(d) NOT-IS-NESS is the effort to handle IS-NESS
by reducing its condition through the use of force.
It is an apparency and cannot entirely vanquish an IS-NESS.
12. The Primary Condition of any Universe is that
two Spaces, Energies, or Objects must not occupy the same Space.
When this condition is violated (Perfect Duplicate)
the Apparency of any Universe or any part thereof is nulled.

(I had originally thought to leave out this concept that also fits into the Four Fundamental Forces Theory that I tried to the “Turtle.”) Well, if you want to multiply five “Big Macs” to feed 5,000 men (besides women and kids), transform water to wine, and instantly heal illnesses and maimed limbs, you would need to know something on this at least this level- don’t you think?

Answer by JESUS IS GOD
The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word him that is weary.
Morning by morning he wakens, he wakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.
The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious, I turned not backward.
I gave my back to the smiters,
and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard;
I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Question by Sirius: Did The Ancients Know About Flight Before Modern Man?
The mahabarata tells of prehistoric vehicles that fly and show as radiant as the sun these vehicles were called Vimanas by the ancient Hindus. These beings that would step out would look just like a Hindu as if the Creator of all things sends you a angel of your bloodline.

The sumerian story of Gilgamesh points out that he meet Noah of the Hebrews but calls him Utpishtim, Gilgamesh the giant also goes to a place that he can seen shine as bright as the sun which I assume to be Atlantis or a place where these gods where dwelling. During his journey with Enkidu threw the water he tells of Flying fiery Chariots that pass over his head oppisite of the direction he is going. Toward babylon where Noah/Utpishtim came from.

Enkidu is taking to Nibiru (another planet) by gods who were from the place Gilgamesh sees showing brightly as the sun, which I assume to be Atlantis , in the tallons of a Eagle Enkidu was taken up, The reason I know he was in outer space because he gives details as what the earth looked like way above the firaments. He says the earth looked like a mill path and the water as a water troph. He goes on and says it also looked as a Jiggsaw puzzle, modern day astronauts of Nasa say the same exact thing.

Native American and Mayans among many other indian tribes tell of beings that rode in the sky in star ships and dwelled on a planet among the star constellation of the pleiades. Kukukalcan and Quetzocoalt were said to be bearded men of light skin similar to the tone of a indian mayan.

Enoch of the Cushites have tales of him being brought among the constellation Orion (heaven) by gods who rode in creatures that showed as light and smoked as a furnace, the same thing happend to Elijah of the Shemite/Hebrews 200 years later. The thing is that these gods where said to look as men with dazzling appereal on. They called these men mighty men of Yahweh, these men were said to be as a black man.

The egyptians along the Nile have tales of Mighty highly advanced beings that flew in the heavens in fiery boats. They called these beings Zep Tepi.

Long runway like markings runs for 1000 of miles in the deserts of Peru, they date back 2,000 years ago when the ancient nascans dwelled thier. Legends say that gods came down who was similar to the nascans with extraterrestrials and landed and used these fields to ride and practice thier flight in there ships.

The stonehenge has always been a mystery I beleive the european giants built it to make contact with angelic alien men who rode in spaceships and looked like them.

So do you beleive the ancients knew about flight before mordern man?

Ecclesiastes 1:11

The Old Testament says nothing is new

9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.

Question by mitya51: Does anyone know what level of faith the ancients e.g. Greeks, Romans, had in their myths?
I understand that the Polytheistic systems of the ancients have been taken as seriously as anything. I know a very little about the so-called babylonian mystery religions, temple worship, fertility rituals, and of course classical mythology. Can someone help delineate the myths/stories and the content of the ancients’ faith. In other words, assuming people believed in gods and goddesses like Zeus, Aphrodite, Prometheus, and Trojan War myths as known in Homer, did people also believe in the stories associated with these deities? Maybe my weak understanding of mythology needs to be demythologized.

Best answer:

Answer by Rainne
Yes. Those stories were taken as seriously by the people who told them as the stories in the Bible are taken by someone who is Christian. That was their faith, those were their gods.

Question by : I want to know what people think consciousness is?
Modern science, which by its methods, does not accept metaphysical reality, has yet to define consciousness. Quantum Physics has learned things some of its own researchers admit were part of ancient philosophy. In short, they are confirming metaphysical realities the ancients based their cultures on. But they both get stuck when it comes to consciousness, which was actually admitted by a Quantum Physiscist in the documentary, :What the Bleep Do We Know? Going Down the Rabbit Hole”. Their problem rests in the fact that they are trying to define the reality of consciousness within the parameters of physics. To me, its like scientists buzzing around during a live play, studying the physical nature of the stage props, to try to figure out what the play is about, and what all the movement is. In Ancient Kamitic (Egyptian) Philosophy, Reality, and every and anything in it, cxan be placed into two DUAL categories:
1. Material, which is MATTER (nothing more than dead lifeless building blocks that cant arrange themselves by their own accord), and ENERGY which is a material aspect of movement. Scientists seem to focus on the cMATTER, while quantum physicists focus a little more on the ENERGY aspects. To the ancients, energy moves matter, which dictates how it behaves.
2. NON-Material: Consciousness is NOT material. In fact, the ancients believe that matter and energy were initially FORMLESS realities, like a dead still body of water to put it symbolically. Consciousness initiated movement in the water, this movement being energy, which consequently orders matter to take its various forms. And what does Consciousness, the PASSIVE OBSERVER, move energy with? The second of the non-material realities: WILL.
The process of creation, literally, and in our practical life, is Consciousness orders matter to form or behave by willing energy to move it.
OK, what are your takes on this guys? Scientists? Philosophers? Laypersons (like myself!)?
I like everyones answers. I only have one problem with one of the answers, not as an insult, please. An inspirational speaker Dr. Dwayne Dyer, once said, “Years ago, people would ask a scientist,if he or she believes in God. They answered to them, ‘of course not, I am a scientist’. Now, if you ask a scientist if they believe in God, they more often respond, ‘of course I do, I am a scientist’ “. That isnt a word for word quote from him, but the point is, early in our scientific quest, many scientists set out to disprove all the religious and metaphysical explanaitions of life and the world we live in. to get the objective facts only, to answer all of lifes questions. Now, some scientists are realizing that for the Universe to ‘explode accidentally into existence (The “Big Bang”, that I partially agree with, but wonder where the previously non existent materials came from that reacted to one another to cause this accidental explosion), is kind of full of holes, because there is too much
