The Consequences of Alcohol

And it’s impact on civilisation

Published on: 18 Aug 2016, Updated 18 Aug 2018

It’s a well established fact that alcohol dulls the senses and over a long-term period destroys brain tissue. Yet we are sensory beings and we rely on our senses to perceive the world around us as well as to make sense of that world. Therefore alcohol in effect is destroying sensitivity to life; in other words, making drinkers stupid.

Civilisation is a recognition that one belongs to a collective. So if we look at ants, each colony is a unique civilisation in a similar way to us. As human beings we all share common traits, but our sense of civilisation depends on our language and upbringing.

Max Muller

An anti Hindu scholarly bigot

It is true that Friedrich Max Muller, the German born philologist and Orientalist, spent most of his life studying the Vedas. It is also true that he edited and published a 51 Volume Sacred Books of the East. But few people knew that he was an employee of the East India Company who started translating the Vedas to specifically denigrate them and in so doing help to break India.

“The Christianity of our nineteenth century will hardly be the Christianity of India. But the ancient religion of India is doomed—and if Christianity does not step in, whose fault will it be?” ~ Max Muller

As he matured, he changed his views a little. But even

Rembering Vlad Dracula

And his responsiveness to Muslim invasions

Is there any relevance to this historical figure, a man who has been vilified across the world as a monster, a tyrant, a bloodthirsty psychopath and of course a vampire in the realm of popular entertainment?

One must realise that troubled times breed men and women who act ‘abnormally’ to deal with the various shapes of adversity. What the teenage Vlad Țepeș (the second son of Vlad Dracul, who became the ruler of Wallachia in 1436) was dealing with were the divisions of a newly Christianised Europe and rule by fear. As Christianity took root, society became more pleasantly capitalist for some with a more clearly defined class structure or cast

Origin of Fair Skin

Have you ever wondered where light skin color originated?

It’s only in the past couple of thousand years that would become aware that other populations have variances in skin colour and in today’s multicultural world, these colours are mixing. We must remember that regardless of skin colour we are still the same species and what separates us most are the ways in which we think.

Our distant ancestry remains theoretical and as our science and technology improves, some theories are becoming probabilities yet we are far from any actual proof. The best we can hope for is a probability that satisfies the majority. In terms of human evolution within the past hundred thousand years, we know of Neanderthal, African,

The Swastika

An ancient symbol misunderstood

Published on: 9 Aug 2016, updated May 29 2018

Ursa Major and Ursa Minor in relation to Polaris.

The symbol of the Swastika goes back over 11,000 years and is believed to have originated in the Harappan or Pre-Harappan period and the culture of the Indus Valley Civilization. There is also a mention of the Swastika in the Vedas around the same time.

The swastika, an Indian symbol of peace and continuity came into ill repute because of the Nazi regime in Germany who took it as their emblem. But they may not have had any idea what it represented. Unfortunately most people still look on the symbol with some disgust due to this

Mysterious Australia

Links to Egypt, India and Space

Published on: 23 Sep 2016, updated May 27 2018

A collection of news clippings on the antiquity and technology of Australia. Visitors from India and Egypt 5000 years ago. Their own stonehenge conveniently destroyed (along with the bulk of the indigenous population).

Migrants from India settled in Australia 4,000 years ago

Australia was settled by a wave of immigrants from India little more than 4,000 years ago, a genetic study shows. The finding overturns the view that the continent was isolated from the time it was first colonised about 45,000-50,000 years ago until Europeans discovered Australia in the eighteenth century. DNA evidence suggests that rather than complete most of the journey over several generations

Narasimha in Ancient Germany

A movement of ideas in our early history

Published on: 7 Apr 2017, updated May 27 2018

In our search for truth about our origins, the 32000-35000 year old Idol of Narasimha, an avatar of Lord Vishnu found in Germany shatters theories opening new windows for investigation and understanding. After all, we were supposed to be uncivilised and unconnected hunter gathers back then.

Archaeologists exploring a cave system in the Lonetal area near Ulm, Germany had found many representations of birds, horses, turtles and single lions, but the lion man idol made from the tusk of a mammoth in the form of a human body with a lion head created a stir across the world.

This discovery created a lot

The Task of Reviving India

Sweeping educational changes and responsibility needed

To the casual observer and the European educated, this idea seems strange because India is a country that everyone chooses to mock without any clear rationale beyond this fact: that Islam and the colonialists having raped and pillaged the country have not been able to destroy what is quintessentially Hindu.

The word/name Hindu of course is an abbreviation of Hindustan referring to the geographic area and not what is seen as Hindu religion, another erroneous concept bandied about by experts whereas the proper term for Hindu spiritual understanding is Sanatana Dharma.

What is the problem of India and why does it need reviving?

India needs to be restored according to the precepts of Sanatana

Credit is not given where credit is due

Indian map from the early BC period

We have all grown up in a Eurocentric world where Europe including the UK became the centre of civilisation after the fall of Rome yet this understanding is more mythological than factual.

One thing is certain and that’s that Europeans love their ideas and on analysis they seem to be almost psychologically attached to them that they have written world history as they saw it conveniently leaving out facts that may shed any doubt on their case. For instance when Vasco de Gama left Portugal in search of an ocean route to India, he had to hug the coast because he did not have

Persia and its Wines

A 7000 year history

An ancient Persian legend says the history of wine began with a beautiful princess who lost favor with the mythological King Jamshid. Overwhelmed with pain and sorrow the princess tried to poison herself by drinking juice from a jar filled with spoiled grapes. After experiencing the juice’s intoxicating effects she fell asleep. The next morning the princess awoke and discovered she no longer felt depressed but rejuvenated instead. She took her discovery to the King who became so enamored with this new “potion” that he accepted her back and she regained the King’s favor.

Thereafter the King shared this wonderful finding with his entire court and decreed that all grapes grown in Persepolis would be
