THE FLAT EARTH – THE GRAND ILLUSION IS THE FUNDAMENTAL BASIS FOR HUMAN EXISTENCE

THE FLAT EARTH – THE GRAND ILLUSION IS THE FUNDAMENTAL BASIS FOR HUMAN EXISTENCE

The Flat Earth – The Grand Illusion is the fundamental basis for human existence.

In my analysis, the term ‘belief’ or ‘disbelief’ must be defined in the context of knowing the Ultimate, Unchanging Reality.

I ask my readers to carefully interpret scientific information and scientific facts to gain Pure Knowledge and Perfect Wisdom that helps man to define his faith or belief in the Ultimate, Unchanging, Eternal Reality often called LORD God Creator.

The celestial object called planet Earth is not an everlasting reality of God’s creation. It is experiencing constant change since the time of its formation and is subject to eventual dissolution along with Sun and other members of our Solar Family.

I account for the reality of man’s mortal existence on the surface of a very fast spinning object called Earth on the following fundamental prerequisites:

1. Man must not have direct sensory experience of Earth’s real shape and real speed. In fact, man needs the experience of the flat disc all the days of his life.

2. The duration or lifetime of man’s mortal existence is determined by man’s sensory experience of the apparent motions of Sun and Moon caused by Earth’s Rotational Spin.

3. The major biological rhythm called Sun Rhythm, Circadian Rhythm, or Diurnal Rhythm that operates a myriad of man’s living functions is synchronized with alternating periods of light and darkness called Day and Night while in reality, the Sun is shining all the time ever since it was created.

The Flat Earth. The Grand Illusion is the Fundamental Basis for Human Existence.

I ask my readers to reflect on scientific facts and information with due diligence. Even if I fly in a plane during the entire period of my earthly existence, my human body would still refuse to live according to the reality of Earth’s Shape and Speed described by Science. In my view, man has no freedom to experience ‘unconditioned’ existence. Man’s existence is always conditioned. The Mortal Existence is conditioned by the Grand Illusion. Man can find hope from God’s promise of everlasting life granted by Belief which requires no validation by Science.

The Flat Earth movement: A society of disbelievers in scientific fact

The Flat Earth. The Grand Illusion is the Fundamental Basis for Human Existence.

© CBS News Scathing of science and spinners to conspiracies, Flat Earthers proudly hold onto their beliefs that man never walked on the moon, our planet is a disc surrounded by ice, and that nothing is true if they can’t see it for themselves.

If you picture Earth as a ball spinning through space. the folks who recently gathered at a park in Arcadia, California, are eager to argue: you’re wrong! Earth is actually “flatter than a pancake,” said Nathan Thompson, part of a movement of people who call themselves Flat Earthers.

They insist the Earth is, well, flat.

We’re living, these folks say, on a disk floating through space, with a tiny sun hovering just overhead. But what about the Earth’s curvature? “I don’t know. No one’s ever seen it,” said one man.

“The perimeter of Flat Earth is a wall of ice,” said Thompson.

“That’s what’s holding in the ocean?” asked correspondent Brook Silva-Braga.

“That’s what’s containing everything,” he said.

And what’s underneath? “Well, you know, we haven’t dug that deep,” said a Flat Earther named Rene.

Netta Hagler, who arranged the meet-up of the Flat Earthers, questioned the fact that Earth is spinning through space at 1,000 miles per hour. “But we can’t feel it. I don’t believe I’m spinning right now. No,” said Hagler.

Patricia Steere, who is one of what you might call the “stars” of today’s Flat Earth movement (which mostly orbits around YouTube), told Silva-Braga, “Probably most people who hear of it will laugh at it, think we’re idiots. But we’re not idiots; we’re intelligent people from all walks of life and all ages.”

Flat Earthers have brought levels onto planes (to prove they are flying level), and zoomed in on the moon and “found” clouds supposedly drifting behind it. “Moon is only a few miles up,” said one Flat Earth YouTuber. “We’ve been lied to on such a massive scale!”

Steere agreed to play a game of “20 Questions: Cosmic Edition” with Silva-Braga.

Photos of the Earth from space? “Completely and utterly false,” she said.

Is the sun 93 million miles away? “No, the sun is not as far away as we’ve been told, nor is the moon. They’re probably about the same size.”

Pictures of astronauts floating around on the space station? “Completely fake. Harnesses, wires.”

Did we really go to the moon? “No. We didn’t go to the moon,” said Steere. “And we don’t have a rover on Mars. And we didn’t do a fly-by of Pluto. We’ve never been to space. Period. End of.”

In short, Flat Earthers don’t believe much of anything unless they see it for themselves. They believe NASA is just part of a broad conspiracy.

According to Steere, “It’s a giant game of chess. We, all of us in humanity, are the pawns. Part of the whole Flat Earth thing is keeping us locked down, not knowledgeable about who we are, who we really are as people, and what we’re capable of.”

National security expert Tom Nichols, who teaches at the Harvard Extension School, takes a dim view of Flat Earth. He told Silva-Braga he thinks something new is happening: “People have really become obsessed with the idea that, if it’s not part of their direct experience, it can’t be true.

“People have lost faith in experts. We’ve developed a kind of reverse snobbery that says if you have a great deal of education, if you’re at a well-known institution, by definition you must be a liar!”

Nichols poured his expertise into a book about “The Death of Expertise” (Oxford University Press).

He said, “Oftentimes younger people will say, ‘Well, the internet is just a big library.’ That’s wrong; the internet is a big dumpster. There’s no guarantee that anything you find on it is true.”

“It’s more democratic; isn’t that good?” asked Silva-Braga.

“No. When it comes to knowledge, more democratic is not good, absolutely not. We don’t decide how fast things accelerate in a vacuum by voting on it.”

So, in this “Show-it-to-me” world, we traveled to the Southern California desert, to meet, for ourselves, the one man who is boldly going where no Flat Earther has gone before.

Meet Michael Hughes – “Mad Mike” to his fans. Limo driver, self-styled daredevil, and most recently, do-it-yourself Flat Earth explorer. “I am their best hope. I am the best hope to prove the Flat Earth,” he said.

“The Flat Earth thing is like everything else to me. I just want people to question everything. Question what your congressman is doing, your city council. Question what really happened during the Civil War. What happened during 9/11.”

And that rocket sitting outside his house? Mad Mike built it himself.

Silva-Braga asked, “How does one go about finding out how to build a rocket?”

“Trial and error,” said Hughes. “That’s a bunch of it, you know?”

“You don’t get a lot of second chances, though, in the rocket business.”

“No, you don’t! Especially at about 1,800 feet up.”

This past March, Mad Mike actually climbed into his steam-powered rocket and set off to see what he could see. And to the surprise of almost everyone, Hughes took flight and landed more or less intact.

The Flat Earth. The Grand Illusion is the Fundamental Basis for Human Existence.

© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc. “Mad Mike” Hughes launched himself into the heavens in a steam-powered rocket he built himself, to confirm his theory that the Earth is shaped like a Frisbee.

True, 1,800 feet is not nearly high enough to properly survey the planet. But Mad Mike now has a plan to go 62 miles up, to the edge of space, where he’ll be able to see (or not see) the curve of Earth.

A model hanging in his house shows how he hopes to strap himself to a contraption involving balloons and rockets and blast off. “The first 20 miles will be with a balloon,” he said. “And after that, my rocket will fire, pull me from the balloon, and then actually once the rocket quits firing, I will actually fly like Superman for, like, another 30 seconds with no power, just up into the atmosphere.”

And if he somehow pulls that off, Mad Mike says he’ll disprove centuries of science once and for all.

Or, not.

“I expect to see a flat disk up there,” he said. “I don’t have an agenda. If it’s a round Earth or a ball, I’m going to come down and say, ‘Hey guys, I’m bad. It’s a ball, OK?'”

And with that, we put the ball back in professor Nichols’ court.

“The world looks flat. I look out my window, I don’t see a curve,” said Silva-Braga.

Nichols replied, “Right, the world looks flat. And who are you to tell me that my perception is no better than anyone else’s? And I think that’s a really dangerous thing, because, you know, the Earth is round, and you’ll learn that the hard way if you try and fly an airplane!”

Nobel Prize in physics awarded for ‘tools made of light’; the first woman in 55 years honored – The Washington Post

The 2018 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded Tuesday to Arthur Ashkin, Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland for their pioneering work to turn lasers into powerful tools.

Ashkin, a researcher at Bell Laboratories in New Jersey, invented “optical tweezers” — focused beams of light that can be used to grab particles, atoms and even living cells and are now widely used to study the machinery of life.

Mourou, of École Polytechnique in France and the University of Michigan, and Strickland, of the University of Waterloo in Canada, “paved the way” for the most powerful lasers ever created by humans via a technique that stretches and then amplifies the light beam.

“Billions of people make daily use of optical disk drive, laser printers and optical scanners . . . millions undergo laser surgery,” Nobel committee member Olga Botner said. “The laser is truly one of the many examples of how a so-called blue sky discovery in a fundamental science eventually may transform our daily lives.”

Strickland is the first woman to be awarded the physics prize since 1963 when Maria Goeppert-Mayer was recognized for her work on the structure of atomic nuclei. Marie Curie won the physics prize in 1903 and the chemistry Nobel Prize in 1911.

A reporter asked Strickland Tuesday what it felt like to be the third woman in history to win the prize.

“Really? Is that all? I thought there might have been more,” she responded, sounding surprised. “Obviously, we need to celebrate women physicists, because we’re out there. I don’t know what to say. I’m honored to be one of those women.”

Ashkin, 96, is the oldest person to be awarded the Nobel Prize. He would not be available for interviews, the committee said Tuesday morning; he was too busy working on his next paper.

In a laser beam, light waves are tightly focused, rather than mixing and scattering as they do in the ordinary white light. Since the first laser was invented in 1960, scientists speculated that the energy of these focused beams could be put to work to move and manipulate objects — a real-life version of Star Trek’s “tractor beams.”

“But this was science fiction for a very long time,” committee member Mats Larsson said.

Ashkin spent two decades studying the properties of lasers, first recognizing that objects could be drawn toward the center of a beam, where the radiation was most intense. (A committee member demonstrated this phenomenon during the news conference by using a hair dryer to suspend a ping-pong ball in the air.) By further focusing the beam with a lens, he developed a “light trap” that could suspend a small spherical object at its center.

Ashkin used his new tool to hold a particle in place, then an atom, and, eventually, in 1987, a living bacterium. Ashkin even demonstrated that the tool could be used to reach into a cell without damaging the living system.

Atomic physicist Bill Phillips, who shared the Nobel Prize in 1997 for his work on cooling and trapping atoms with lasers, said Ashkin’s discoveries were vital to his own research. “I feel like I owe a great debt to Art,” he said.

Also in the 1980s, Mourou and Strickland were working together at the University of Rochester to overcome a problem that had dogged laser research for decades: High-intensity laser beams tended to destroy the material used to amplify them. It was as though scientists were trying to boil water in a pot that could not handle such high temperatures.

The Rochester researchers developed an elegant workaround, which they called “chirped pulse amplification.” First, they stretched out the beam with a mile-long fiber optic cable, reducing its peak intensity. Then they amplified the signal to the desired level, before compressing it into an ultrashort, ultrapowerful pulse lasting a tiny fraction of a second.

“Different people were trying to get short pulses amplified in different ways,” Strickland said. “It was thinking outside the box to stretch first and then amplify.”

Strickland was a graduate student at the time of the CPA research; the 1985 article that announced the achievement was her first scientific publication.

Students have historically not been recognized by the Nobel Committee, something critics say overlooks the work done by young scientists who are more frequently women and underrepresented minorities.

Yet graduate students are the backbone of most scientific research; often they run the experiments and do the detailed data analyses that lead to major discoveries. The prizewinning discovery of pulsars — swiftly spinning cores of collapsed stars — would not have been possible without Jocelyn Bell Burnell, who built the telescope and spotted the first signal when she was earning her PhD. But Burnell was not among the list of laureates for that prize.

The journal Nature reported this weekend that the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences would explicitly call on future nominators to consider gender, geography and topic for the 2019 prizes.

Göran K. Hansson, secretary-general of the academy, said Tuesday the academy is taking these measures “because we don’t want to miss anyone.” But they did not affect this year’s prize: “It’s important to remember that the Nobel Prize is awarded for discoveries and inventions, and those who receive it have made major contributions to humankind, and that’s why they get the prize.”

CPA has been used to take images of split-second processes, such as the interactions between molecules and atoms, and it’s fundamental for laser eye surgery.

The technique is just as important to basic research.

“Fast pulse, high-energy lasers is . . . one of the key things that characterize modern atomic physics,” Phillips said. “There’s so much you can do with [them] to study how atoms behave.”

In a phone interview with the Swedish Academy, Strickland said her favorite application of high-power lasers is something she still demonstrates to undergraduate students in physics lab: White light generation.

With this technique, a beam containing a narrow range of wavelengths is shot into a medium such as water, causing the waves to spread out into a rainbow. This is more advanced than Newton’s famous experiment with a prism; whereas he simply spread out light into its component colors, white light generation broadens the spectrum contained within a beam, creating the colored light.

“It’s a remarkable thing to see,” Strickland said, and it took decades for physicists to understand how it worked.

“But that’s what scientists like to do,” she said, “is puzzle over something.”

India currently has two lasers that produce 100 terawatts (10 to the power 12) beams.

The terawatt (TW) is equal to one trillion (1012) watts. The total power used by humans worldwide is commonly measured in terawatts (see primary energy). The most powerful lasers from the mid-1960s to the mid-1990s produced power in terawatts, but only for nanosecond time frames.

The Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology in Indore is in the process of installing two petawatt systems, while another is likely to be installed in Hyderabad.

Such high intensities are extremely useful in many scientific contexts. These high-power beams of light, when they interact with matter, produce such extreme conditions that are found only in the deep cores of stars, or other celestial bodies. Scientists use this to study and understand these conditions, which would otherwise not be accessible to them, giving rise to the expression ‘astrophysics in the laboratory’.

Such ultrashort and high-power light beams also help the scientists in uncovering processes that take place in the micro-world. These processes happen so quickly that they cannot be captured by anything else. High-power femtosecond (10 raised to the power minus 15) pulses have enabled scientists to ‘see’ processes such as atomic interactions that earlier appeared to be instantaneous and remained invisible.

What is Life? Who is Your Governor?

I am student of Natural Sciences and Medical Science. I know that man does not rule or govern even a single cell of his own human body that comprises of trillions of Individual, Independent, and Autonomous Cells, the building blocks of Life.

What is Life? Who is Your Governor? Man is governed by the Creator of Day and Night.

Human Anatomy and Human Physiology explain the structures and functions of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems of body. For man is not the ‘Governor’ of his own body, man has to know the ‘Governor’ who has authority over both body and the world in which body physically exists. Man is governed by the Creator of Day and Night.

What is Life? Who is Your Governor? All living functions are guided, sequential, purposeful events. Who is Your Guide?

What is Life? Who is Your Governor? Who is the LORD? Who is the Enjoyer? Who is the Sustainer? Who is the Protector? Who is the Permitter? Who is the Supersoul?

Scriptures offer guidance. Man of understanding will follow the guidelines to arrive at Knowledge. Firstly, I ask my readers to understand Life as Knowledge in Action. All living functions demand purposeful, goal-oriented, non-random, sequential, and guided events. Scripture speak of LORD God Creator as “GOVERNOR.” If there is ‘Governor’, He will be known by study of Laws which govern Existence of Man and World.

LIFE IS CYCLICAL FLOW OF MATTER AND ENERGY

What is Life? Who is Your Governor?

I ask my readers to study Fundamental Laws of Conservation taught by Physics and Chemistry. Life is possible because of unchanging Laws that govern Chemical Elements, Chemical Compounds, and Chemical Interactions. Both living functions and dying process involve chemical reactions called Oxidation-Reduction Chemical Reaction.

What is Life? Who is Your Governor?
What is Life? Who is Your Governor? Birth, Aging, and Death are Natural Phenomena operated under influence of Time.

Every Natural Phenomenon is Operated by Unchanging Principle:

Change is the natural phenomenon for things in Nature change under the influence of ‘Time’. Man undergoes change during the course of his entire existence from conception to death. Man uses various organs of sense perception to perceive the world in which he exists. Mind is the chief organ of sense perception for it interprets sensory information after rational analysis.

Every natural phenomenon, event or situation that man observes or perceives, demands operation of an underlying unchanging principle. For that reason, events called birth and death represent natural phenomena supported or operated by an underlying unchanging principle. Phenomenon called Life is simply impossible if some values are not conserved as per The Universal Law of Conservation of Mass, Energy, and Momentum.

Yoga and Ayurveda are vast topics, particularly when one considers both their traditional and modern developments, and the great variety of topics and practices that each can cover. Yoga is not just asanas and Ayurveda is not just herbs, however important these may be! They cover the whole of life.

Both Yoga and Ayurveda are historically closely related and have developed in parallel since ancient times. They have diverged in modern times, over the last hundred and fifty years, particularly outside of India, in which Yoga without Ayurveda was for a long time the norm. However, Yoga and Ayurveda are becoming reconnected again, not only in India but throughout the entire world. Their reintegration is reintegration of consciousness, life, healing and transformation!

Origins of Yoga and Ayurveda

Yoga begins historically with the Mantra Yoga of the Rigveda, the oldest Vedic ! text that originated over five thousand years ago. These mantras of the Rishis promote a Yoga or union with the higher powers of consciousness in the universe, providing the basis for the Self-knowledge and cosmic knowledge that we find in later Vedanta and the Vedic sciences.
This connection of Yoga and mantra is reflected in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali that emphasizes OM, the main mantra from which the Vedas are said to have originated, and in Patanjali’s work as great grammarian.
Vedic mantras, along with corresponding rituals and meditations, were commonly used both for spiritual development and for helping gain the outer goals of life, invoking the Devatas or the Divine powers behind nature and the soul. These cosmic energies are defined mainly as four in the Vedas as Agni (fire), Vayu or Indra (air and electrical energy), Surya! (sun) and Soma (moon). Their light forms are symbolic of yet deeper inner powers of Agni as speech, Vayu/Indra as Prana, Surya as Atman (soul), and Soma as the mind. A variety of such formulations exists in Vedic texts.
Veda means knowledge or science and Yoga, meaning work or practice, arose as a term for its application. …..

Millions stretch and bend as Indian PM Modi leads International Yoga Day exercises

21st June 2016 | AFP

CHANDIGARGH: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called yoga a “people’s mass movement” as he took to the mat Tuesday along with millions of others worldwide to celebrate the ancient practice.

Across India, sailors, soldiers, school children and bureaucrats bent and twisted their bodies from early morning at mass outdoor sessions to mark the second International Yoga Day.

Sessions were also held around the world including at the Sydney Opera House where colorful mats were spread outside the Australian landmark, while Afghans and foreigners gathered at the Indian embassy in Kabul.

Yoga-loving Modi, dressed in a white track suit, led more than 30,000 people in the northern city of Chandigarh for a mass session where they performed poses and breathing exercises at the outdoor Capitol Complex.

“Do not wait, make yoga a part of your life,” Modi urged in a brief speech to mark the event, an idea he successfully asked the United Nations to adopt.
“This is a day linked with good health and now it has become a people’s mass movement,” the 65-year-old premier said.

Modi took a short break to inspect the poses of his fellow yogis, who included students and soldiers, before returning to his spot.

His ministers were also dispatched to cities around India to stretch and bend along school children, while the navy tweeted photos of sailors on mats spread atop an aircraft carrier.

Modi, who credits yoga for his ability to work long hours on little sleep, has been spearheading an initiative to reclaim the practice as a historic part of Indian culture after his Hindu nationalist government came to power in 2014.

Indian scholars believe yoga dates back 5,000 years, based on archaeological evidence of poses found inscribed on stones and references to Yogic teachings in the ancient Hindu scriptures of the Vedas.

LIVE MINDFULLY vs LIVE SPIRITUALLY

LIVE MINDFULLY vs LIVE SPIRITUALLY

LIVE MINDFULLY vs LIVE SPIRITUALLY. WHICH SHOULD BE THE GUIDING MECHANISM FOR MAN’S BEHAVIOR AND ACTIONS, MIND OR SPIRIT???

In the present Information Era, man is living mindfully with thoughtful awareness of his desires, and passions. However, living mindfully is not the same as living spiritually. Spirit or Soul is a guiding mechanism that regulates human behavior and action to establish experience of Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility in living human condition. There are several signs and symptoms or indicators of man’s spiritual sickness in modern times.

DISCOVERY OF MOTHER INDIA

DISCOVERY OF MOTHER INDIA

DISCOVERY OF BHARAT MATA OR MOTHER INDIA.On bhavanajagat.com

The Land known as Mother India or Bharat Mata is known through mental concepts discovered by people of that Land. Indian thinkers described concepts of Mental Equilibrium, Mental Balance, and Mental Equanimity.

On bhavanajagat.com

I am sharing validity of Indian concepts proclaimed by unknown Indian thinkers of the past. India gets credit for giving tools for developing the ‘Art of Self-Discipline’ for Indian thinkers recognized importance of self-control, self-restraint, and self-regulation of thoughts to modify behavior.

This concept of Self-Discipline is fundamental to concept of Discipline in Armed Forces. In the West where the problem of Substance Abuse has become rampant, they started using Indian techniques of meditation and Yoga to regulate behavior and to control mental urges associated with problem of drug addiction.

THE ART OF SELF-DISCIPLINE :
On bhavanajagat.com

Indian concept of “ARTH” about material wealth has taken roots in countries like the US and many people have embraced lives of ‘Voluntary Simplicity’. In Physics, Science called Mechanics and Dynamics explains principles of Equilibrium such as Static Equilibrium and Dynamic Equilibrium. Indian thinkers shared concepts of Mental Equilibrium or mental equanimity which is not a religious thought or religious practice. It is a Scientific thought and Scientific Theory.

Indian Inventions

... Christian Views: The Masque of Red Death meets Seven Deadly Sins

Indian thinkers developed mental concepts which we apply in daily lives. We received them free of cost and hence we do not care to attach any value to terms invented by people of our Land. If a concept is correct, and valid, it will have practical applications. Man has yet to know himself better and know the reality of the world in which he exists. A variety of human problems can be traced to this ignorance of man which alienates man from his own true or real nature. When people try all other remedies and fail to find a cure, they will embrace traditional Indian Wisdom. The following are some of the mental concepts which will help humanity to find answers for problems that affect them in their daily lives:

1. Atman: It is not a religious concept. The concept of spirit or soul is about a living principle that brings peace, harmony, and tranquility in living experience.

2. Moksh: It is nothing about Hindu religion. It is about release, liberation, or emancipation from conditioned existence on earth. For man desires freedom, man will continue to explore this concept while religions may promise rewards of life in heaven, afterlife, fear of hell, and resurrection after death. Moksh involves breaking attachment to present life before the event called death.

3. Jagat: Man lives on the surface of earth which is constantly moving in universe which is also moving all the time. There is no fixed reference frame for man’s existence at any given instant. Every instant is a new instant while man struggles to measure time in units called past, present, and future.

4. Satya: For man’s existence is conditioned by illusion, man wants to find truth that is not influenced by time; unchanging principle, truth, fact or reality that remains constant while things in nature tend to change.

5. Dharma: Principle to govern actions and behavior while man is not free from not performing action. At a fundamental level Dharma guides to sustain the fact of one’s own physical existence as member of a social community at given place and time.

6.Kama: A term that covers broad range of desires such as for sex, food, material wealth, power, position or social status, etc., It acts as a powerful drive and provides motivation to man’s actions in gratifying his appetite.

This list can be too long. When we look at man in modern times, there are no drugs for treating ailments associated with Anger, Jealousy, Lust, Greed, Miserliness, Arrogance, and Infatuation. Indian concepts provide tools for managing man’s problems

What ancient India really discovered and invented!

https://www.yahoo.com/style/ancient-india-really-discovered-invented-110605019.html

folomojo

The debate on the achievements of ancient India in science and technology continues unabated. There have been assertions, some seemingly outlandish, and counter-assertions. For instance, Union minister of science and technology, Dr Harsh Vardhan’s statement that the Pythagoras theorem and algebra were ancient India’s contribution was pooh-poohed as stretching the facts. Is it really so? Or, is their something in the contentions? We bring you the contribution of the ancient Indians – the ones acknowledged and beyond reproach. Take a peek!
1. The age of the earth
An early metrical work of Hinduism, Manusmriti, calculates the age of the earth as described in two verses where the age of earth is made in reference to the life span of Brahma. (Brahma is revered as the god of creation in Hinduism).
Professor Arthur Holmes, a geologist and a professor at the University of Durham writes in his book, The Age of Earth (1913), “Long before it became a scientific aspiration to estimate the age of the earth, many elaborate systems of the world chronology had been devised by the sages of antiquity. The most remarkable of these occult time-scales is that of the ancient Hindus, whose astonishing concept of the earth’s duration has been traced back to Manusmriti, a sacred book.“
In the 5th century, the ancients Indians had stated that the earth was 4.3 billion years as compared to the Europeans who believed that our planet was about 100 million years old. But modern science has calculated the age of the earth to be about 4.6 billion years, incredibly close to the 4.3 predicted by the ancients almost 15 centuries earlier.
Today, scientists across the world believe that the solar system and the earth is about 4.54 billion years, deciphered by the radiometric reading.

2. Concept of relativity
Alan Watts, a professor, graduate school dean and research fellow of Harvard University, drew heavily on the insights of Vedanta. He said, “To the philosophers of India, however, Relativity is no new discovery, just as the concept of light years is no matter for astonishment to people used to thinking of time in millions of kalpas – A kalpa is about 4,320,000 years.”

3. Trigonometry and optics
Varāhamihira, an astronomer, mathematician, and astrologer, of the 5th century defined the concepts of refraction and reflection. He also defined the algebraic properties of zero as well as of negative numbers. A L Basham, an Australian Indologist, writes in his book, The Wonder That was India, “The world owes most to India in the realm of mathematics, which was developed in the Gupta period to a stage more advanced than that reached by any other nation of antiquity.”

4. Discovery of gravity
More than 5,000 year-old, Rig Veda stated through verses that the gravitational force held the universe together and the sun was at the center of the universe; thousands of years before Newton and Copernicus discovered it. This finding is supported by an American writer, Dick Teresi, in his book – Lost Discoveries. The book is a comprehensive study of the ancient non-western foundations of modern science.

5. Pythagoras theorem
It was ancient Indian mathematician Baudhāyana who wrote about a theorem similar to the modern Pythagoras theorem in the book Baudhāyana Śulbasûtra in 800 BC. The book is also said to be the oldest books on advanced mathematics. It is also speculated that Pythagoras travelled extensively and even visited India, after which he is said have revealed the Pythagoras theorem. In a six-page essay on the book written by Kim Plofker, Mathematics in India, ( a western historian of mathematics), Brown University Mathematician, David Mumford, writes, “There is the use of Pythagoras’ famous theorem in the construction of pillars in India, some centuries before the Greek philosopher is said to have postulated it.”

6. The zero
The so called Arabic numerals and positional decimal numeral system, originated in India. However, it was popularized by the Arabs, who later took it to the west. The superiority of this number system stems from the fact that the roman numerals did not have a zero, making it difficult to carry out mathematical calculations. It was Aryabhata, who is said to have discovered zero and clearly defined the usage of decimal system. He names the first 10 decimal places and gives algorithms for obtaining square and cubic roots, utilizing the decimal number system. Marquis Pierre Simon de Laplace, an 18thcentury French mathematician, philosopher, and astronomer, stated, “It is India which gave us the ingenious method of expressing all numbers by 10 symbols.”

7. Cotton fabric
The fibre that clothes the modern world, finds its mention in a Rig Veda hymn as “threads in the loom.” Historians also believe that when Alexander invaded India, his soldiers found the new fabric, cotton, much more comfortable that the traditional leather and wool that they were used to. They then popularized the fabric in ancient Europe. Herodotus, an ancient Greek historian, describes Indian cotton as “a wool exceeding in beauty and goodness that of sheep.”

8. High-quality steel
Ancient India’s expertise is metallurgy is reiterated in the form of its architecture marvels. It was said that as early as 200 BC, high quality steel was being produced in India, through what the Europeans would call as the crucible technique.
William James Durant, an American writer, historian, and philosopher writes in his famous book, The Story of Civilization, “Something has been said about the chemical excellence of cast iron in ancient India, and about the high industrial development of the Gupta times, when India was looked to, even by Imperial Rome, as the most skilled of the nations. By the sixth century the Hindus were far ahead of Europe in industrial chemistry; they were masters of calcinations, distillation, sublimation, steaming, fixation, the production of light without heat, the mixing of anesthetic and soporific powders, and the preparation of metallic salts, compounds and alloys. The tempering of steel was brought in ancient India to a perfection unknown in Europe till our own times.”

9. Takshashila University
Around 800 BC, a giant University at Takshashila (often called Taxila) existed in the north-western region of India. At that time even the concept of University was unknown to the world.
Joseph Needham, a British scientist, historian and sinologist known for his scientific research and writing, wrote in his book, Within the Four Seas: The Dialogue of East and West, “When the men of Alexander the Great came to Taxila in India in the fourth century BC they found a university there the like of which had not been seen in Greece, a university which taught the three Vedas and the eighteen accomplishments and was still existing when the Chinese pilgrim Fa-Hsien went there about AD 400.”

10. Chess (Chaturanga)
Chaturanga is a Sanskrit word which was used to refer to an ancient Indian strategy game, the ancestor to Makruk, Xiangqi, Janggi and finally the modern game of chess. It was said to have been developed during the Gupta period between 6th and 7th century AD in India. The game, primarily based on a battle plan, comprised of four parts of the army – elephants, chariots, horses and foot soldier; apart from the king and the minister.
Harold James Ruthven Murray, an English educationalist and a prominent chess historian was among the first few modern historians who proposed the theory that chess originated in India. Published in 1913, A History of Chess, is a comprehensive book on the subject.
