Parallel Universes Exist and Interact With One Another

http://in5d.com/parallel-universes-exist-and-interact-with-one-another/
January 15, 2015

by Ellie Zolfagharifard

Imagine a world where dinosaurs hadn’t become extinct, Germany had won World War II and you were born in an entirely different country.

These worlds could exist today in parallel universes, which constantly interact with each other, according to a group of US and Australian researchers.

It may sound like science fiction, but the new theory could resolve some of the irregularities in quantum mechanics that have baffled scientists for centuries.

The team proposes that parallel universes really exist, and that they interact. That is, rather than evolving independently, nearby worlds influence one another by a subtle force of repulsion. They show that such an interaction could explain everything that is bizarre about quantum mechanics. 
 
WHAT THEY CLAIM:

Professor Wiseman and his colleagues propose that:
 
 The universe we experience is just one of a gigantic number of worlds. Some are almost identical to ours while most are very different; 
 
All of these worlds are equally real, exist continuously through time, and possess precisely defined properties; 
 
All quantum phenomena arise from a universal force of repulsion between ‘nearby’ (i.e. similar) worlds which tends to make them more dissimilar.

The team from Griffiths University and the University of California suggest that rather than evolving independently, nearby worlds influence one another by a subtle force of repulsion.

They claim that such an interaction could explain everything that is bizarre about how particles operate on a microscopic scale.

Quantum mechanics is notoriously difficult to fathom, exhibiting weird phenomena which seem to violate the laws of cause and effect.

‘The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957,’ said Howard Wiseman, a professor in Physics at Griffith University.

‘In the well-known ‘Many-Worlds Interpretation”, each universe branches into a bunch of new universes every time a quantum measurement is made.

‘All possibilities are therefore realized – in some universes the dinosaur-killing asteroid missed Earth. In others, Australia was colonised by the Portuguese.’

‘But critics question the reality of these other universes, since they do not influence our universe at all.

‘On this score, our ‘Many Interacting Worlds’ approach is completely different, as its name implies.’

The Many Worlds theory was first proposed by Hugh Everett, who said that the ability of quantum particles to occupy two states seemingly at once could be explained by both states co-existing in different universes.

Instead of a collapse in which quantum particles ‘choose’ to occupy one state or another, they in fact occupy both, simultaneously.

IS OUR UNIVERSE A HOLOGRAM? UNIVERSE COULD BE A MERE PROJECTION

The holographic model suggests gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings. These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos

The universe is a hologram and everything you can see – including this article and the device you are reading it on – is a mere projection.

This is according to a controversial model proposed in 1997 by theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena.

Until now the bizarre theory had never been tested, but recent mathematical models suggest that the mind-boggling principle could be true.

According to the theory, gravity in the universe comes from thin, vibrating strings.

These strings are holograms of events that take place in a simpler, flatter cosmos. Professor Maldacena’s model suggests that the universe exists in nine dimensions of space, and one of time.

In December, Japanese researchers attempted to tackle this problem by providing mathematical evidence that the holographic principle might be correct.

The holographic principle suggests that, like the security chip on a credit card for example, there is a two-dimensional surface that contains all the information needed to describe a three-dimensional object – which in this case is our universe.

In essence, the principle claims that data containing a description of a volume of space – such as a human or a comet – could be hidden in a region of this flattened, ‘real’ version of the universe.

In a black hole, for instance, all the objects that ever fall into it would be entirely contained in surface fluctuations. This means that the objects would be stored almost as ‘memory’ or fragment of data rather than a physical object in existence.

Like Everett, Professor Wiseman and his colleagues propose the universe we experience is just one of a gigantic number of worlds.

They believe some are almost identical to ours, while most are very different.

All of these worlds are equally real, existing continuously through time, and possessing precisely defined properties.

They suggest that quantum phenomena arise from a universal force of repulsion between ‘nearby’ worlds which tend to make them more dissimilar.

Dr Michael Hall from Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics added that the ‘Many-Interacting Worlds’ theory may even create the extraordinary possibility of testing for the existence of other worlds.

‘The beauty of our approach is that if there is just one world, our theory reduces to Newtonian mechanics, while if there is a gigantic number of worlds it reproduces quantum mechanics,’ he says.

Dr Michael Hall from Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics says the ‘Many-Interacting Worlds’ theory may even create the extraordinary possibility of testing for the existence of other worlds

‘In between it predicts something new that is neither Newton’s theory nor quantum theory.

‘We also believe that, in providing a new mental picture of quantum effects, it will be useful in planning experiments to test and exploit quantum phenomena.’

‘For us at least there is nothing inherently implausible in the idea,’ added Professor Wiseman.

‘For fans of science fiction it makes those plots involving communication between parallel worlds not quite so far-fetched after all.’

The ability to approximate quantum evolution using a finite number of worlds could have significant ramifications in molecular dynamics, which is important for understanding chemical reactions and the action of drugs.

Professor Bill Poirier, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Texas Tech University, has observed: ‘These are great ideas, not only conceptually, but also with regard to the new numerical breakthroughs they are almost certain to engender.

The Fabric of The Cosmos - The Illusion of Time - Does Time Really Exist?

by Rising Life Media
March 26, 2014

Physicist Brian Greene hosts this 4-part documentary on the NOVA series on America's PBS (public television) network, based on his best-selling novel of the same title: The Fabric of The Cosmos.

In this series, Greene's goal is to explain and demonstrate the basic physical structure of the universe itself. While his previous documentary, The Elegant Universe, focused on the stuff that fills the universe, this 2011 documentary instead focuses on the universe itself, the stage upon which everything exists.

The high points of this series are the great multimedia examples, showing an approximate example of how space and time itself changes according to the laws of physics.

Episode 1: What Is Space?

In the first episode of the series, Greene tackles the daunting task of explaining the empty space that makes up most of our universe.

This quickly brings him right up against the theory of general relativity developed by Albert Einstein. Under this theory, space is intricately linked to time in a unified property of the universe called spacetime.

Ranging from the big bang all the way to the recently-observed phenomenon of dark energy and how space itself might fall apart within a black hole.

He concludes this bizarre explanation with a discussion of the holographic principle, which may imply that our entire universe is merely an illusion created on the boundary of some sort of massive two-dimensional surface.

Episode 2: The Illusion of Time

In this second episode, Greene turns his attention to the other half of spacetime... the time aspect.

Greene explores the science that ultimately lead us to the question: "Does time exist?" For example, why do we experience an arrow of time - an irreversible direction to time - when space doesn't seem to have this sort of direction.

He goes further, discussing the prospect of potentially scientifically-allowable theories of time travel.

Episode 3: Quantum Leap

In the third episode of the series, Greene moves from the realm of space and time on to the stuff that exists within it to explore the amazing mysteries that quantum physics tell us about the way our world works.

In quantum physics, objects don't like to exist in a single time and place, but seem to exist as probabilities.

From the strange wave particle duality exhibited by the double-slit experiment (demonstrated wonderfully with a digitally-enhanced bowling alley sequence) to the bizarre science behind quantum computers, Greene and other physicists explore the impact of quantum physics on our understanding of the universe.

Episode 4: Universe or Multiverse?

In the concluding episode of the documentary, Brian Greene moves beyond our own universe to explore the idea that we might actually be part of a vast multiverse containing many different types of parallel universes, including some that might even operate under different fundamental laws of physics.

Why multiple universes? How could anyone believe such crazy theories?

Though we haven't actually gotten any experimental evidence to prove their existence - and we probably won't ever be able to - there are several theoretical reasons for believing that they may exist.

Greene explains the scientific reasoning behind why scientists propose the various types of parallel universes that have come out of scientific research.

The Moon - What Is It and Who Made It?

by Ted Twietmeyer
February 19, 2006
from Rense Website

New research shows that our Moon is much older than originally thought. It may also be far older than either the Earth or our Sun. Our Earth is estimated to be 4.6 billion years old.
 
However, Moon rocks brought back by Apollo were dated at 5.3 billion years old, and the dust upon which they rested was about one billion years older.

  • Who put it there and why?
  • Can carbon dating proof moon rocks be that far off?
Perhaps, but far more evidence of the satellite's unusual history and characteristics have been out there all along - hidden in plain sight as we shall see.
 
Apollo 17 Moon View (NASA)
 
In a past article (April 17th 2004 - "Our Solar System Is No Accident" [1]) I stated that the Moon must have an artificial origin, since no natural explanation has proven viable for it's existence. Let us explore what science might be available to further this concept.
 
There is a very large body of evidence that clearly shows something strange is connected with this orbiting body. Yet none of this data has ever been publicly explored or discussed in documentaries.

We will begin with the known statistics of our satellite. [2]

Though not listed above, the Moon is also suspected to have multiple magnetic fields. This theory was the result of researching satellite probe data. It is important to keep this in mind for later discussion. (The exact origin of the Earth's magnetic field is has not been established.)

For readers who may not be aware, the Moon provides important timing functions for tides to control Earth processes. Without tides, it is believed that the world's oceans would have almost no life, drastically affecting the food chain for our planet. Science already knows that tides control the behavior and life cycles of shore and sea-based creatures. These include various species of fish, sea turtles, penguins and many more that use tide cycles for planting eggs.
 
Mechanically, the Moon also acts like a huge flywheel stabilizing the Earth's rotation. Recently the wobble in the Earth's rotation has abruptly ceased with no explanation from the science community as of this writing.
 
Could the Moon have caused this to happen?  

MOONQUAKES

Various theories have been attributed to the Moon's origin.
 
However, there is a silence from NASA regarding the seismographic instrument data that Apollo left behind - Moonquakes are taking place on our nearest neighbor. This equipment could run for many decades, as each installation is powered by a radioactive isotope thermal generator. Even more strange are that these events are taking place on the far side.
 
This was discovered more than 20 years ago.
 
Could there be a connection to the Earth's wobble and the presence or absence of Moonquakes? This has yet to be proven.

A planetary sciences meeting was chaired by P.R. Stoddard, Department of Geology and Environmental Geosciences, Northern Illinois University; R C Elphic, Los Alamos National Laboratory in August of 1985. A large body of evidence was provided which showed some very odd events taking place on the Moon. [3]

Studies regarding Moonquakes and magnetic "anomalies" (a word virtually patented by NASA for an unplanned "event or observation") show strange things are taking place on our silver neighbor. In the meeting, a paper was presented by Nakamura, Y. Institute for Geophysics, University of Texas at Austin titled "Deep Moonquakes: Remaining Problems."
 
Here is an extract of their research paper summary. They state the center of the Moon may be hollow.
 
My explanation of scientific terms are enclosed in [ ]:

"We have recently reexamined more than 9000 previously unidentified seismic events catalogued during the Apollo landing missions and positively identified for the first time about 30 deep Moonquake nests on the far side of the Moon. Although only a few of them are currently locatable, the relative arrival times among stations for the rest and presence or absence of seismic signals at particular stations suggest that either:
(a) The region within about 40 degrees of the antipode [a point on the opposite side] is aseismic [a place where no Moonquakes have ever been observed.]

(b) Or the deep interior of the Moon severely attenuates or deflects seismic waves.
In (b) above, this could make sense if the deep interior is hollow. Aside from the obvious question of how to distinguish between such hypothetical models, this effort raised several more general questions concerning the use of deep Moonquake signals to infer the structure and dynamics of the deep interior of the Moon... "
MAGNETIC FIELDS OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN

Another paper titled "Correlations Between Magnetic Anomalies and Surface Geology Antipodal to Lunar Impact Basins" was also presented by Richmond, N C, Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California and Hood, L L, Lunar and Planetary Laboratory, University of Arizona, Tucson.
 
The summary for this paper states:

"Previous work has shown that the strongest concentrations of lunar crustal magnetic anomalies [magnetized areas] are located antipodal [opposite sides of the Moon] to four large, similarly aged impact basins (Orientale, which is furrowed and pitted terrane and Serenitatis, Imbrium which is material of grooves and mounds and Crisium).

Only these areas have been selected due to:
a) Limited Lunar Prospector magnetometer data coverage of the area antipodal to Serenitatis [name of a crater]
b) The location of the Crisium antipode, which is dominated by ejecta deposits from the more recent Orientale impact.
Here, we report results of a correlation study between magnetic anomaly clusters and geology in areas antipodal to Imbrium and Orientale...This is supported by an observed lack of demagnetization associated with the 61 km Copernican-aged O'Day crater at the edge of Mare Ingenii, which suggests a deep source for the anomalies [unexplainable magnetized areas.]
 
Possible source materials and the origin of the magnetization will be discussed at the conference."
Put in simplified terms, this paper showed that magnetized areas were found on the OPPOSITE side of the Moon from large craters.
 
The data was obtained from the orbiting Lunar Prospector satellite. Yet in the absence of an overall planetary magnetic field (magnetosphere) no one can determine how this magnetization could happen. Perhaps a meteorite hitting the Moon is like striking an iron rod, which if done just right can align the molecules to form a magnet.
 
The problem here is that the area the researchers are talking about is 2,000 miles away from the crater - on the opposite side of the Moon!

Molten magnetite rock on Earth is well known to have molecules aligned to the Earth's magnetic field while cooling. This pattern is permanently retained and has helped scientists to determine when and how often the Earth's magnetic poles have flipped. Unfortunately, no magnetosphere encompassing the entire Moon has been detected as of this writing.

Among the other papers at the conference was yet another titled "Lunar magnetic anomalies in the solar wind: Possible existence of mini-magnetosphere" written by Kurata, M of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Tsunakawa, H also of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, and Saito, Y of the The Institute of Space and Astronautical Science.

Here is an extract of that paper's summary:

"It has been suggested that lunar magnetic anomaly fields are interacted with the solar wind plasma to form the mini-magnetosphere on the lunar surface...Lin et al.(1998) pointed out that a mini-magnetosphere was formed in the solar wind downstream of the strong magnetic anomaly in Imbrium antipode region...
 
If the mini-magnetosphere exists on the lunar surface deflects solar wind particles, its role of barrier could produce a high-albedo region around the magnetic anomaly. In this study, we mainly investigate magnetic anomaly fields in the solar wind at low-altitude (15-40 km) with a data of level 1.

We detected lunar magnetic anomalies after preprocessing of the level 1 data... In the present study, magnetic anomalies were mapped from the data sets in the tail lobe, the Moon wake and the solar wind, and were compared with each other...
 
Its contour pattern of magnetic field intensities in the tail lobe or the wake is almost symmetrical with respect to the north-south line. However, such symmetry [of the magnetic field] is obviously distorted in the solar wind to show some elongation toward the downstream of the solar wind.

Also, the form of distortion [of the magnetic field] seems to be changed when the solar wind conditions (dynamic pressure, the angle of incidence, and so on) are different. These results may support existence of the mini-magnetosphere in Reiner Gamma region. We will discuss the possible mini-magnetosphere comparing the LP MAG data with the ACE data of the solar wind."
The above summary tells us that a solar wind appears be affected by a mini-magnetosphere! Yet other researchers claim this field cannot exist! Perhaps the true nature and characteristics of the solar wind are not fully understood. Many other papers and studies exist that use data collected by NASA instrumentation which we cannot cover here.
 
The general public is completely unaware of most of these papers, as scientists tend to stay within their own disciplines (and circles of friends) for peer review.

RESONANCE

When the spent Lunar Landers were commanded to crash into the Moon from orbit, the Moon rang for an unexpected period of time.
 
The first time was on November 20, 1969 and it used the lander for the Apollo 12. The seismographs left behind caused the Moon to ring for more than an hour. Apollo thirteen's third stage impact on the Moon was even more incredible.
 
Reverberations lasted for three hours and twenty minutes, down to an estimated depth of twenty-five miles.
 
This ringing seems to suggest the Moon may have no core at all.
 
STRANGE MATERIALS AND SHAPES
 
Lunar South Pole (NASA)
 
This mosaic is composed of 1,500 Clementine images of the south polar region of the Moon.
 
The top half of the mosaic faces Earth. One can easily see a counter-clockwise, swirl-like pattern of craters. Is this pattern the result of random impacts of over eons of time or just an illusion?

The lunar crust is also much harder than previously thought. Astronauts had difficulty when drilling for samples on the Lunar surface (maria.) The maria is composed primarily illeminite, a mineral containing large amounts of titanium which is an extremely hard metal, and quickly wears out the best machine tool bits.
 
Titanium is also very light in weight, like aluminum. Uranium 236 and neptunium 237 (elements not normally found on Earth) were discovered in lunar rocks.

  • How did these elements get there?
  • If one were to argue they were formed on the Moon, then how did this happen?
 
Orange colored glass spheres and other fragments from Apollo 17,
which is actually dust under high magnification.
 
The particles shown range from 20 to 45 microns, and was brought back from the Taurus-Littrow landing site.
 
Scientist-Astronaut Harrison J. Schmitt discovered the dusty orange soil at Shorty Crater. The orange particles are mixed with black grains of other material, and are about the same size as the particles that compose silt on Earth. Chemical analysis of the orange soil material revealed it is similar to samples from the Apollo 11 landing area (Sea of Tranquility) site several hundred miles to the southwest.
 
Like Apollo 11 samples, Apollo 17 samples are also rich in titanium (8%) and iron oxide (22%). Unlike the Apollo 11 samples this orange soil is also unexplainably rich in zinc. The orange soil is probably of volcanic origin and not the product of meteorite impact. (NASA)

The question is - could volcanic action have existed on the Moon? It remains unproven if the Moon ever had volcanoes in the ancient past.  

ORBITAL ODDITY

Ours is the only Moon in the solar system with a stationary, circular orbit which is almost perfectly circular. The Moon's center of gravity is approximately 6000 feet closer to the Earth than its geometric center.
 
This should make the Moon wobble but it does not.
 
The resultant bulge is located on the far side of the Moon, opposite the side facing our Earth.

  • It begs to ask the question - who or what put the Moon into correct orbit?
  • Who or what established the perfect velocity?
This is clearly no accident.
 

POSSIBLE FIRST SIGHTING OF THE MOON BY MAN AND FLASHES OF LIGHT

One of the most fascinating of the lunar observations are flashes of light. Ancient authors such as Aristotle and Plutarch wrote about a group called the Proselenes of Greece. This group claims to have existed before the Moon was in orbit. Heiroglyphs found near the city of Tiahuanaco, Bolivia record the Moon entering into orbit about 11,500 to 13,000 years ago.

Other historians and writers such as Aristarchus, Plato, Eratosthenes, Biela, Rabbi Levi, and Posidonius all reported anomalous lights on the Moon. One year before the first Apollo landing, NASA reported that more than 570 flashes were observed on the Moon over more than 400 years, from 1540 to 1967.

On July 29, 1953, John J. O'Neill observed a 12-mile-long bridge straddling the crater Mare Crisium. In August, British astronomer Dr. H.P. Wilkens verified its presence, "It looks artificial. It's almost incredible that such a thing could have been formed in the first instance, or if it was formed, could have lasted during the ages in which the Moon has been in existence.

An obelisk-shaped object that towers 1 miles from the Ukert area of the Moon's surface, was discovered by Orbiter 3 in 1968. Dr. Bruce Cornet, who studied the amazing photographs, stated,

"No known natural process can explain such a structure."
One of the most curious features ever photographed on the Lunar surface (Lunar Orbiter photograph III-84M) is an amazing spire that rises more than 5 miles from the Sinus Medii region of the lunar surface.

The Obelisks: Lunar Orbiter II took several photographs in November 1966 that showed several obelisks, one of which was more than 150 feet tall.

"...the spires were arranged in precisely the same was as the apices of the three great pyramids." [4]
SUMMARY

Almost everything we look at with regard to the Moon does not fit any known natural method of formation.
 
Either our neighbor is artificial, or it is not. Scientists everywhere continue to find oddities that strongly indicate artificial origin.

  • If it is artificial, what does this say about our Earth's origins?
  • Could life have been sustained on our Earth if the Moon was not in orbit before 13,500 years ago?
Everything we know about the mechanism and cycle of life in our oceans indicates it could not.
 
To form an object the size of our Moon requires physics, engineering and materials manufacturing technology far beyond anything we can imagine today. Are the depressions and deep holes we casually label as craters without giving it a second thought - actually craters?

Perhaps one day the Moon's creators will land on Earth to see what our progress is. Then they will takeoff again to go dust off their creation with a wave of their hand over a control panel? That's all fine and dandy - as long as they don't kidnap the "man in the Moon."

Summer nights would never be the same again without him...

Is The Moon the Creation of Intelligence?

by Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov
FROM THE EMINENT SOVIET JOURNAL: ’SPUTNIK’
from TheForbiddenKnowledge Website
 
Although people long ago began to wonder whether the "canals" on Mars were the creation of cosmic engineers, for some odd reason it has not occurred to look with the same eyes upon the peculiarities of the lunar landscape much closer at hand.
 
And all the arguments about the possibilities of intelligent life existing on other celestial bodies have been confined to the idea that other civilizations must necessarily live on the surface of a planet, and that the interior as a habitat is out of the question.

Abandoning the traditional paths of "common sense", we have plunged into what may at first sight seem to be unbridled and irresponsible fantasy. But the more minutely we go into all the information gathered by man about the Moon, the more we are convinced that there is not a single fact to rule out our supposition.
 
Not only that, but many things so far considered to be lunar enigmas are explainable in the light of this new hypothesis.

AN ARTIFICIAL SPUTNIK OF THE EARTH?

The origin of the Moon is one of the most complicated problems of cosmogony. So far there have been basically three hypotheses under discussion.
HYPOTHESIS I: The Moon was once a part of the Earth and broke away from it.
This has now been refuted by the evidence.

HYPOTHESIS II: The Moon was formed independently from the same cloud of dust and gas as the Earth, and immediately became the Earth’s natural satellite.

But then why is there such a big difference between the specific gravity of the Moon (3.33 grams per cubic centimeter) and that of the Earth (5.5 gr.)? Furthermore, according to the latest information (analysis of samples brought back by the U.S. Apollo astronauts) lunar rock is not of the same composition as the Earth’s.

HYPOTHESIS III: The Moon came into being separately, and, moreover, far from the Earth (perhaps even outside the Solar system).

This would mean that the moon would not have to be fashioned from the same "clay" as our own planet. Sailing through the Universe, the Moon came into Earth’s proximity, and by a complex interplay of forces of gravity was brought within a geocentric orbit, very close to circular. But a catch of this kind is virtually impossible.

In fact, scientists studying the origin of the Universe today have no acceptable theory to explain how the Earth-Moon system came into being.

OUR HYPOTHESIS: The Moon is an artificial Earth satellite put into orbit around the Earth by some intelligent beings unknown to ourselves.
We refuse to engage in speculation about who exactly staged this unique experiment, which only a highly developed civilization was capable of.

A NOAH’S ARK?

If you are going to launch an artificial sputnik, then it is advisable to make it hollow. At the same time it would be naive to imagine that anyone capable of such a tremendous space project would be satisfied simply with some kind of giant empty trunk hurled into a near-Earth trajectory.

It is more likely that what we have here is a very ancient spaceship, the interior of which was filled with fuel for the engines, materials and appliances for repair work, navigation, instruments, observation equipment and all manner of machinery... in other words, everything necessary to enable this "caravelle of the Universe" to serve as a kind of Noah’s Ark of intelligence, perhaps even as the home of a whole civilization envisaging a prolonged (thousands of millions of years) existence and long wanderings through space (thousands of millions of miles).

Naturally, the hull of such a spaceship must be super-tough in order to stand up to the blows of meteorites and sharp fluctuations between extreme heat and extreme cold. Probably the shell is a double-layered affair--the basis a dense armoring of about 20 miles in thickness, and outside it some kind of more loosely packed covering (a thinner layer- -averaging about three miles). In certain areas--where the lunar "seas" and "craters" are, the upper layer is quite thin, in some cases, non-existent.

Since the Moon’s diameter is 2,162 miles, then looked at from our point of view it is a thin- walled sphere. And, understandably, not an empty one. There could be all kinds of materials and equipment on its inner surface. But the greatest proportion of the lunar mass is concentrated in the central part of the sphere, in its core, which has a diameter of 2,062 miles.

Thus the distance between the kernel and the shell of this nut is in the region of 30 miles. This space was doubtless filled with gases required for breathing, and for technological and other purposes.

With such an internal structure the Moon could have an average specific gravity if 3.3 grams per cubic centimeter, which differs considerably from that of Earth (5.5 grams per cubic centimeter).
 
A BATTLESHIP THEY COULDN’T TORPEDO?

The most numerous and interesting of the formations on the lunar surface are the craters. In diameter they vary considerably. Some are less that a yard across, while others are more than 120 miles (the biggest has a diameter of 148 miles). How does the Moon come to be so pockmarked?

There are two hypothesis--volcanic and meteoric. Most scientists vote for the latter.

Kirill Stanyukovich, a Soviet physicist, has written a whole series of works since 1937 in which he expounds the idea that the craters are the result of bombardment of the Moon for millions of years. And he really means bombardment, for even the smallest celestial body, when it is involved in one of those fastest head-on collisions so common in the cosmos behaves itself like a warhead charged with dynamite, or even an atomic warhead at times. Instant combustion takes place on impact, turning it into a dense cloud of incandescent gas, into plasma, and there is a very definite explosion.

According to Professor Stanykovich, a "missile" of a sizable character (say 6 miles in diameter) must, on collision with the Moon, penetrate to a depth equal to 4 or 5 times its own diameter (24-30 miles).

The surprising thing is that however big the meteorites may have been which have fallen on the Moon (some have been more than 60 miles in diameter), and however fast they must have been travelling (in some cases the combined speed was as much as 38 miles per second), the craters they have left behind are for some odd reason all about the same depth, 1.2-2 miles, although they vary tremendously in diameter.

Take that 148-mile diameter crater. In area it outdoes Hiroshima hundreds of times over. What a powerful explosion it must have been to send millions of tons of lunar rock fountaining over tens of miles! On the face of it, one would expect to find a very deep crater here, but nothing of the sort: there is three miles at the most between top and bottom levels, and one third of that is accounted for by the wall of rock thrown up around the crater like a toothed crown.

For such a big hole, it is too shallow. Furthermore, the bottom of the crater is convex, following the curve of the lunar surface. If you were to stand in the middle of the crater you would not even be able to see the soaring edge-- it would be beyond the horizon. A hollow that is more like a hill is a rather strange affair, perhaps.

Not really, if one assumes that when the meteorite strikes the outer covering of the moon, this plays the role of a buffer and the foreign body finds itself up against an impenetrable spherical barrier. Only slightly denting the 20-mile layer of armour plating, the explosion flings bits of its "coating" far and wide.

Bearing in mind that the Moon’s defense coating is, according to our calculations, 2.5 miles thick, one sees that this is approximately the maximum depth of the craters.
 
A SPACESHIP COME TO GRIEF?

Now let us consider the chemical peculiarities of the lunar rock.
 
Upon analysis, American scientists have found chromium, titanium and zirconium in it. These are all metals with refractory, mechanically strong and anti-corrosive properties. A combination of them all would have enviable resistance to heat and the ability to stand up to means of aggression, and could be used on Earth for linings for electrical furnaces.

If a material had to be devised to protect a giant artificial satellite from the unfavorable effects of temperature, from cosmic radiation and meteorite bombardment, the experts would probably have hit on precisely these metals. In that case it is not clear why lunar rock is such an extraordinarily poor heat conductor -- a factor which so amazed the astronauts? Wasn’t that what the designers of the super-sputnik of the Earth were after?

From the engineers point of view, this spaceship of ages long past which we call the Moon is superbly constructed. There may be a good reason for its extreme longevity. It is even possible that it predates our own planet. At any rate, some pieces of lunar rock have proved older than the oldest on Earth, although it is true, this applies to the age of the materials and not of the structure for which they were used. And from the number of craters on its surface, the Moon itself is no chicken.

It is, of course, difficult to say when it began to shine in the sky above the Earth, but on the basis of some preliminary estimates one might hazard a guess that it was around two thousand million years ago.

We do not, of course, imagine that the moon is still inhabited, and probably many of its automatic devices have stopped working, too. The stabilizers have ceased functioning and the poles have shifted. Even though the moon keeps that same side turned towards us, for some time it has been unsteady on its own axis, on occasion showing us part of its reverse side which were once invisible to observers on the Earth -- for example, the Selenites themselves if they made expeditions here.

Time has taken its toll. Both body and rigging have disintegrated to some extent; some seams on the inner shell evidently diverged. We assume that the long (up to 940 miles) chains of small craters formerly ascribed to volcanic activity were brought about by eruptions of gas through cracks appearing in the armour plating as a result of accidents.

No doubt one of the most splendid features of the lunarscape -- a straight "wall" nearly 500 yards high and over 60 miles long -- formed as a result of one of the armour plates bending under the impact of celestial torpedoes and raising one of its straight, even edges.

The Moon’s population presumably took the necessary steps to remedy the effects of meteorite bombardment, for example, patching up rents in the outer shield covering the inner shell. For such purposes a substance from the lunar core was probably used, a kind a cement being made from it. After processing this would be piped to the surface sites where it was required.

Not long ago astronomers discovered variations in the gravitational fields near the large "seas". We believe the reason to be this: the Moon’s dry seas are in fact areas from which the protective coating was torn from the armour cladding. To make good the damage to these vast tracts, the installation producing the repair substance would have had to be brought immediately beneath the site so that it could flood the area with its "cement". The resulting flat stretches are what look like seas to the terrestrial observer.

The stocks of materials and machinery for doing this are no doubt still where they were, and are sufficiently massive to give rise to these gravitational anomalies.

What is the Moon today? Is it a colossal necropolis, a "city of the dead," where some form of life became extinct? Is it a kind cosmic Flying Dutchman? A craft abandoned by its crew and controlled automatically? We do not know and we shall not try to guess.

WAITING FOR THE EVIDENCE

We have put forward in this article only a few of the reasons - unfortunately the evidence is so far only circumstantial - for our hypothesis, which at first glance may appear to be crazy.

A similar "crazy" idea was put forward in 1959 by Professor Iosif Shklovsky, an eminent scientist, in relation to the "moons" circling around Mars.
 
After carefully weighing up the evidence he concludes that they are both hollow and therefore artificial satellites.

We feel that the questions we have raised in connection with our Moon provide sufficient food for serious thought on the matter; the result may be the illumination of our many lunar riddles. Now, of course, we have to wait for direct evidence to support our idea. Or refute it.

Probably there will not be long to wait.

Our Progenitors, The 'Pitaram' Orbit the Moon

by V. Susan Ferguson
June 21, 2014
from MetaphysicalMusing Website

In Sanskrit 'the Pitaram', our ancient progenitors - those 'forefather' colonizing beings, who came to this planet and took part in the creation and hybridization of the human races - are described by the Seer Rishi Dîrgatamas, who composed the following verse in the ancient Sanskrit text, the Rig Veda I.164.18.

The Pitaram are said to inhabit the Bhuvas region of the air and orbit the Moon.

Rig Veda I.164.18 [my rendering]
The progenitors of mankind, beyond in the heavens,
our forefathers, ancestors far distant remote in space.

[The 'Pitaram' are the progenitors of mankind and are said to inhabit the Bhuvas region of the air and orbit the Moon as regents of the Naksatras Maghâ (29˚Sagittarius to 9˚Capricorn) and Mûla (29˚Leo - 9˚Virgo) in the heavens above us.  
- M. Monier-Williams Sanskrit to English Dictionary, Vol. 1, page 911-12.]

Its Mouth [moving 'jaws' that speak the frequencies of sound potent with] atomic Knowledge [the metaphysics of atoms (anu), quantum particle physics] below, [here] in succeeding [Earth] time.

The enlightened, the ancient and alien [not from Earth],
wise, knowing, poet-seers, arrived here they say
prior to, beyond past future [our earth time],
thus [from] far beyond, in the remote constellation Capricorn [enâ],
[those] who gifted with the Insight of regulated tones of utterance,
[transformed] Mind thought-idea [as √vac] Sound-Light,
whence, out of which produced the born, here in this world.
The progenitors of human kind were far more advanced than we are today both in technology and metaphysical Wisdom-Knowledge.

They manipulated the spectrum of wave-form frequencies, plasma physics, magnetic fields, cosmic rays, etc. through sound modulation in order to coagulate, manifest and produce various forms, including modifying a planetary climate.

The colonizers of our planet Earth did not use combustion engines to traverse space or even atomic energy. Their technologies were far more advanced that anything we have yet to imagine and include the warping of time.

For example plasma is the most abundant form of matter in the Universe, thus there can be no plasma cartel. Using sound frequencies, our progenitors directed the Solar wind's plasma and other sources of plasma that continually flow through space, including gamma ray bursts and the explosion of stars.

Plasma has infinite conductivity and was focused, concentrated to their use. The Polar Regions, such as the Arctic Circle, receive the greatest intensity of solar plasma energy.
 
Planet Earth's dipole magnetic field acts as a natural concentrating conductor. In confluence with planet Earth's dipole magnetic field, ubiquitous plasma was funneled through the Polar Regions, through the earth's core, and into the pyramids located around the planet.

In that era, pyramids served as collectors and transducers, to create the torus and concentrate the resulting energies from plasma into an intense coherent path [reference Inanna Returns, chapter X, The Ekur].
"The only way to traverse the vast distances of space is to possess the means of manipulating or altering the very structure of space itself - altering the space-time geometric matrix, which to us provides the illusion of form and distance.

The method in achieving this lies in the alteration of the frequencies controlling the matter-anti matter cycles that govern our awareness or perception of position in the space-time structure. Time itself is geometric…

If time can be altered, then the whole Universe is accessible to us." 

Emulating the Progenitors


Sound has a wide spectrum of effects on all forms, subtle and solid, everything including water, our emotions and feelings.

The Rishis who composed the Rig Veda hymns knew this and sought to duplicate the technology of their progenitors. However, as time passed and mankind moved further down into the cycles of time, this knowledge was lost, veiled (vilaya) in layers of diminishing consciousness as,
"the crust of ritualism almost completely enveloped the deep spiritual meaning of the mantras" [R.L. Kashyap],
...until it became sheer uncomprehending memorized rote repetition, and finally fear-based superstition.

The priests were correct in keeping the mantras memorized precisely as they had been handed down over countless generations, because their power did remain locked in the sound.

The off-world implications regarding the progenitors orbiting our Moon referred to in this verse came as a complete shock to me. Let me assure the reader that I do not approach these sacred mantras with the intent that I am going to find evidence for the colonization of planet Earth.

In fact, my discovery of rocket fuel [in verse III.44.5] led me to put away my research and renderings for a time. Some will say that an off-planet bias is my ingrained filter because of my having seen over 30 UFOs and the visions that formed the book, Inanna Returns.

Yes I agree that my experiences have shaped my perspective.

This is the same for everyone. I make no apology, but I want to emphasize as I have in the past, that in connecting the Rig Veda with the off-world colonization of our blue-green planet, I intend no lack of respect.

Surely my continued reverent study shows that I sincerely honor the Rishis and their sacred praise-hymn mantras.

 

The Arctic Home in the Vedas


When I first approached 'The Arctic Home in the Vedas' by the great Indian scholar and freedom fighter Lokmanya Bâl Gangâdhar Tilak, I simply did not have enough background understanding to properly absorb his comprehensive controversial research.

A wider reading on the Rig Veda from multiple sources has made Tilak's subtle detailed intricacies of citing numerous individual verses more accessible to me. And I must say a veritable gold mine of illumination.

For example contrary to some later views, Tilak says that the Rig Veda is not arranged in chronological order, therefore the hymns that are in the tenth Mantra may in fact predate the first.

Time appears to be almost irrelevant to the ancients and to the frustration of western scholars the Sanskrit texts usually disregard exact dates.

Tilak:
"…the Rig Veda, or we might even say the whole Vedic literature, is not arranged into different strata [he uses a geological term] according to their chronological order, so that we can go from one stratum to another and examine each separately.

The Rig Veda is a book in which old things of different periods are so mixed up that we have to work long and patiently before we are able to separate and classify its contents in chronological order."

Before the Ice


Another revelation from Tilak is a very subtle understanding that could only emerge from a scholar who had read the verses many times with an open mind.

Tilak says that the Rishi's are describing events that occurred in their remote past, as he says:
"…exploits are described in the Rig Veda as pûrvyâni or prathamâni, that is old or ancient.

In short the ancient hymns, poets, or deities, mentioned in the Rig Veda must have referred to a by-gone age and not to post-Glacial times… the subject matter was old [when the Rishis composed their hymns], that is, traditionally handed down to the poet from remote ages."
Thus according to Tilak there is,
"a distinct contrast between the births of gods on the one hand and the poet [seer Rishi] who may see the hymn in the later age… meaning that the subject matter of the hymn is an occurrence of the former age (yuga)."
Again to clarify, Tilak has said,
"…the deities whose exploits were sung in the hymns were considered to be ancient deities.

Nay, we have express passages where not only the deities but their exploits are said to be ancient, evidently meaning that the achievements spoken of in the hymns were traditional and not witnessed by the poet himself…"
The implication of this is that the Rishis carried in memory their already ancient primordial traditions and invoked them by composing the Rig Veda hymns.

The hymns were spoken, not written down, and held in memory for thousands of years. The Rishis placed themselves in higher states of consciousness, perhaps accessing the siddhi, [sravanadarshanam in Sanskrit] known in English as 'remote viewing' - and because their consciousness was so highly elevated, their superb hymns formed in rhyme, thus the various meters such as the Gâyatrî, Trishtup, and Jagatî the Rig Veda is famous for.

The Rishis were enlightened and through self-mastery entered into the ultimate Source, becoming 'That' as the God-within their Heart [anahata] pervaded their consciousness.

Yaska, the 6th century BCE grammarian, classifies the Rig Veda mantras in three distinct ways: the deity is addressed indirectly in the third person, or is directly addressed as if the seer is speaking to the deity right in front of him.

The third reflects the highest state of God-consciousness, in which the Rishi seer,
"may identify himself with the god who comes for praise, and speak about the god in the first person as if he is the god himself. The god is projected on oneself, or the seer lords over himself and becomes the god for the time being."
This is exactly what Bhagavad Gita XII.7 expresses in the Sanskrit 'mayyâveshitacetasâm' - which is the understanding that those whose consciousness has entered into the One, our eternal Being and Source, will be delivered from the confines of Time and Space as samsara, the death-transmigration-ocean.

Politics and Tilak's Arctic Home


Even though B.G. Tilak was a freedom fighter and instrumental in liberating India from British rule, sadly his extensive and detailed scholarly research on the Arctic in the Veda was cast aside by Indian politics.

After the British left, India naturally became more nationalistic; and from what I have understood reading diverse articles, Tilak's idea that the poet-seer composers of the Rig Veda came from the Arctic Circle - and therefore not from India - understandably did not fit into the requirements of India's new nationalism.

Therefore I was pleased to find that R.L. Kashyap, who translated the entire Rig Veda and Yajur Veda, had some supporting kind words to say about Tilak's labours. Kashyap's translations reflect the esoteric theories of the mystic genius Sri Aurobindo and his brilliant disciple T.V. Kapâli Sâstry.

In 'Unveiling the Light in the Veda' Kashyap states that their interpretation of the Rig Veda is esoteric,
"based on the inner meaning of the hymns."
Kashyap says that there are multiple meanings. He does not believe that the outer meanings are the only meanings.

However an outer interpretation,
"could be helpful for drawing conclusions on the environment, age and other conditions of the ancient society of the Rishis or to unearth history and record. Similarly it may be possible to fix upon, following Mr. Tilak, the Arctic Home of Vedic Rishis…"
R.L. Kashyap is Professor Emeritus of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University in Indiana.

His impressive work on the Vedas is extensive, helpful and very informative. The fact that Kashyap was unwilling to brush aside Tilak's monumental research impressed me, because if you read Tilak with the necessary due diligence, you will be convinced as many in India were before politics submerged his ideas. In fact, Tilak's research was initially accepted.

In the Publisher's Note in the introduction to Tilak's 'The Arctic Home in the Vedas', John B. Morgan says that archaeology is subject "to the whims of fashion" like other fields of human knowledge.

Tilak's theory had an enormous impact for a time, but,
"it has become associated with the Aryan Invasion Theory, which now carries political baggage as a result of the National Socialists and others in ways unintended by its formulators.

In India itself, the idea also no longer holds currency with many Indian authorities, who view the Arctic theory as a conception cooked up by the colonial British to try to show that Indian civilization was merely the product of an earlier colonization carried out by similar conquerors from the North."
I am aware that my ideas of off-planet colonization may not be well received as politically correct by nationalistic Indian politics.

The publisher goes on to suggest that "once all of the political accretions which currently obscure its surface have faded" Tilak's research may once again receive serious attention, which I believe it deserves.

Sound-Light produced the 'Born'


Related to the emphasis on meter and sound in the Rig Veda hymns is the portion of my intuitive-translation of the above verse I.164.18:
[those] who gifted with the Insight of regulated tones of utterance,
[transformed] Mind thought-idea [as √vac] Sound-Light,
whence, out of which produced the born, here in this world.
Theories of sound are one of the most fascinating aspects of the Sanskrit texts.

There are numerous volumes of study dedicated to understanding sound and it's pervasive influence on consciousness. The Taittirîya Upanishad contains the Vedic rules on sound modulation, the proper pronunciation of word and laws of euphony.

The Mimamsaka ritualists such as Sayanarevered traditions of pronunciation to the point of exclusion of meaning. They understood that the sound vibrations produced during a ritual mattered. Unfortunately, the layered meanings were lost by then, and ritual repetition of sound was all they valued.

Because of this, some scholars are bewildered that Sayana would have chosen to write about the Rig Veda at all.

 

Sound in Kashmir Shaivism


The French Sanskrit scholar, André Padoux wrote on the theory of sound in 'Vâc, The Concept of the Word in Selected Hindu Tantras'.

In Chapter 3, Padoux explains the manifestation of sound:
"The activity of divine consciousness which brings the universe into existence, and which…is pure light, Prakâsha, is often described…as a flashing forth, a radiance, a luminous vibration…

Manifestation, as it is born out of the Word and along with it, may be understood as a flashing forth (sphurattâ), which gradually becomes obfuscated… through a series of transformations and condensations of sound or phonic primal energy, which gradually brings forth (but in a never ending process, for it takes place beyond time) the manifested universe…"
The Kashmir Shaivite genius saint Abhinavagupta explains sound as 'ParâVâk' in his text Parâ-Trishikâ-Vivarana:
"The Highest Lord ever brings about [manifestation, maintenance, absorption, veiling, and revealing grace]… He is in fact the very Grace itself, being always equipped with His Supreme Divine Energy (Shakti)…[which] expresses in ParâVâk…

She (the Supreme Vâk) is, in the most initial stage, stationed in the Divine I-consciousness which is the highest mantra and which is not limited by space or time… by means of coagulation the subtle energies of consciousness assume the solid form of matter, but even in that thickened mass of matter, consciousness does not lose its nature, even as water in becoming ice does not lose its nature."
Alain Danielou in his Music & the Power of Sound quotes the Kashmir Shaivite Ksemarâja to elucidate metaphysical correspondences with sound:
"The bindu [the undifferentiated point of spiritual power containing the universe], wanting to manifest the thought It has of all things, vibrates, and is transformed into primordial sound with the nature of a cry (nâda).

It shouts out the universe, which is not distinct from Itself; that is to say, It thinks it - hence the word shabda… the supreme 'word' which sounds, vibrates, submitting all things to the fragmentation of life…"
Danielou:
"The universe is called in Sanskrit 'jagat' (that which moves) because nothing exists but by the combination of forces and movements. But every movement generates a vibration and therefore a sound that is peculiar to it…

Since each element of matter produces a sound, the relation of elements can be expressed by a relation of sounds."

Motion embedded within the Sanskrit letters


In the myriad realms of manifestation, beyond the stillness of origin, everything is motion. Therefore the Sanskrit letters themselves may be perceived as various types of motion.

In his Comparative Etymological Dictionary, Franco Rendich has interpreted the root meanings of Sanskrit letters as various forms of movement.
 
For example: the consonant 'k' is said to be "cosmic, curvilinear and enveloping motion."

The letter 'g' represents "winding motion, in various directions" and 'c' is said to be "circular motion" - thus we understand that the root meanings of Sanskrit words are made up of coagulated sounds holding power as motion, Shakti, creative action.

Pitaram in the Sanskrit dictionary


I have quoted directly from the M. Monier-Williams Sanskrit to English Dictionary [Vol. 1, page 911-12] this definition of the 'Pitaram' as the progenitors of mankind that are said to inhabit the Bhuvas region of the air and orbit the Moon as regents of the Naksatras Maghâ (29˚Sagittarius to 9˚Capricorn) and Mûla (29˚Leo - 9˚Virgo) in the heavens above us.

I do want to emphasize that I have not made this up, imagined or presupposed it. The verse is speaking of the Pitaram, our progenitors.
 
Progenitor is defined in the Oxford Dictionary as,
'a person from whom another person, family, or race is descended; an ancestor.'
So these 'Pitaram' are our progenitors, our ancestors, from whom we are descended.

They are said to inhabit a specific region of the air and orbit the Moon as regents of specific Naksatras. The 28 Naksatras are the astronomical and astrological demarcations of the constellations as sectors, which the Moon passes through.

Maghâ and Mûla are two, therefore we are told the precise location of origin in the heavens from whence these regents, our progenitors, came.

What's up on our Moon?


This reference in the Rig Veda to off-planet beings orbiting our Moon reminds me of Ingo Swan, the original remote viewer who worked with the Stanford Research Institute, SRI, and many government agencies for years.

In his book 'Penetration: The Question of Extraterrestrial and Human Telepathy' Swann tells of his involvement with a very secret government agency that asked him to remote view the dark side of the Earth's Moon.

He saw extensive buildings, roads, and human forms digging. Swann makes it very clear that our government is very much intimidated by these ETs.

He says to the government agent:
"They've somehow got you by the balls, haven't they? That's why you are resorting to psychic perceptions… They are NOT friendly are they?"
One wonders,
  • Why our progenitor ancestors are no longer friendly?
  • Have centuries of devastating human conflicts and the more recent poisoning of our own planet engendered a loss of faith in the worth of their creation?
  • Or are they just 'not friendly' to our military?

The Vayu Purana


The Puranas were written in the middle ages, therefore much later than the Rig Veda or the Upanishads, or the Mahabharata; and many scholars like R.L. Kashyap doubt their credibility.

However, they do contain descriptions of myriad other worlds, Lokasas worlds we might call hyper-dimensional or other-dimensional in the sense that they are not within the same vibrational frequencies as we earthlings experience.
 
Perhaps the entities in these realms do not share a similar physical density. All these worlds appear to be lit from within, meaning they do not have reflected light as we do here.

Vayu Purana, Part I, Chapter 53 - Arrangement of Luminaries:
73. There are crores [one crore = 10,000,000] of constellations and as many stars too.

75. The stars occupy their own abodes. These luminaries are the abodes of pious persons.

76. The abodes are created by the Self-born Deity at the beginning of the Kalpa. They stay up to the dissolution of all living beings.

77. These are the abodes of the deities in all Manvantaras. These deities identify themselves with these abodes and stay till the final dissolution.

78. The abodes of those who have gone have vanished.

79. In this Manvantara, the planets reside in aerial cars.
(This is a particularly intriguing verse because it suggests the idea of planets as space ships or a giant space station-mother ship that might not require an orbit.)

83. Svarbhanu… being a demon, harasses all living creatures. [There are myriad demon worlds as well, perhaps Reptilian or Borg-like.]
 
Vayu Purana
Part I, Ch. 1, Verse 93
The stars in the form of constellations are mentioned along with the planets wherein are situated the residences of the gods who have performed meritorious acts.

These Loka worlds are all realms contained within this universe - the Cosmic Golden Egg known as Hiranya-garbha.
 
The Puranas say that there are seven higher worlds and seven lower, but within these divisions are contained thousands of cities of the,
  • Nagas (serpents)
  • Danavas (giants)
  • Pisacas (eaters of raw flesh)
  • Raksasas (demons),
...and a multitude of other beings in a variety of possible existences.

These worlds all seem to have their own code of life that they adhere to, their own dharma, and the gods in the Puranas are often fond of the demons and have respect for them - when they are not at war with them, which happens repeatedly.

Thus the primeval idea of 'War in the Heavens' is a frequent subject in the Sanskrit texts. These wars are often reflected here on planet Earth. Even in the Mahabharata, the gods are said to be looking on during battles and showering brave warriors with flowers.

The Puranas also say that there are thousands of crores (literally millions) of these Cosmic Eggs universes!

Our own astronomers have recently said that there are at least 100 million planets capable of evolving ecosystems.
"…calculations are consistent with the widely-held assumption that the majority of exoplanets have a lower probability of hosting complex life than Europa, even a very low percentage of an extremely large number is high, and it is now recognized that the number of exoplanets is vast.

If we assume the existence of 10–100 billion exoplanets in the Milky Way Galaxy, with 1% of them capable of evolving ecosystems as complex as those that might have existed at some point on Europa, that computes to the possibility of at least 100 million planets that may have seen the evolution of some biological complexity in our galaxy.

Thus, this report constitutes the first quantitative argument that complex forms of life, while rare in frequency, are likely to be large in absolute number in our galaxy alone, and therefore throughout the universe."
There are billions of galaxies. Our Milky Way galaxy alone is home to at least 100 billion alien planets, and possibly many more.

It is unbelievably absurd to continue this delusion that we are alone in the universe!

Universes Float Like Bubbles in an Ocean


Maya, the divine power of the Lord, reflected by him externally appears… The Lord, covering Himself with it, conceals his nature of absolute purity and divinity.


…He sees everything through a viewpoint of diversity and forgets the divinity of His I-consciousness. Besides, Maya-tattva serves as the inanimate objective substance out of which all other insentient elements evolve.
 
It is thus the substantive cause of numerous universes floating in it like bubbles in an ocean.
