The Chinese invaded Tibet, and the Dalai Lama fled. This much many people know. Fewer know, though, of the systematic, ongoing ravaging and suppression of Tibetan culture, institutions, monuments, writings, and above all, the people themselves, who have been made strangers and subhumans in their own land, deliberately dispossessed by waves of Chinese immigrants brought in to Sinize Tibet. And the Tibetan monks have been the direct and particular targets of Chinese repression, for it is they who iconify the essence of the Tibetan culture, its deep spiritual beliefs which are the polar opposite of Communism, and in whom reside much of its cultural tradition.
Persecuted in their own country, many, like the Dalai Lama before them, have fled to India, reportedly bringing with them a raft of mystical abilities, abilities honed by successive generations of monks over the millennia. Now, that would be newsworthy all by itself, but is merely the point of departure for the real story.
Apparently, you see, the Indian military is mining these refugees for their long-guarded mystical techniques, evidently seeking a unique kind of military advantage.
Yes, this does sound decidedly “out there,” but readers of this magazine may recall the writer’s earlier “The Indian Antigravity Report: Has a Modern Technological Breakthrough Been Developed from Ancient Sources?” in AR No. 51. There, what can fairly be characterized as a kind of Indian Manhattan Project was unmasked, except that India has long had the Bomb, together with a variety of delivery means. This was even more advanced—antigravity, Stealth and other technology, derived from the unlikeliest of sources: ancient Indian religious poems and stories such as the Ramayana and the Vedas, with data mining using Sanskrit scholars and Hindu clerics in addition to the usual crop of military and technical experts. Now, though, another piece of what’s apparently going on has surfaced, in the form of an India Daily online article titled “Tibetan monks can become invisible and fly—stealth and anti-gravity reverse engineering from UFOs? (http://www.indiadaily.com/editorial/2251.asp)
Here, we are informed that not only can Tibetan monks do all sorts of amazing things, while never showing them in public, but so, too, can the Hindu hermits deep in the Himalayas. Further, the article says that fighting while in stealth mode and using antigravity were common events in the same sacred Hindu literature described above. Evidently, the Indians are trying to reconnect with an all but lost part of their full capabilities.
Ancient Mystical Capability in Modern War
The literature of what’s been seen and occasionally even filmed in Tibet by travelers is remarkable. We read of monks stripped down to loincloths draping wet towels around their necks while sitting cross-legged outside in the snow in winter and through special breathing designed to raise the chi or life force, competing to see which one dries his towel first. The applications of that one alone to combat in winter and adverse weather are obvious, for cold, wet troops tend to be ineffective and frequently become casualties.
There are accounts of visitors observing monks on foot, sometimes heavily laden, blazing across the countryside in rapt concentration and at a speed more familiar to those who like to watch the Roadrunner cartoon character in action. When they expressed a desire to stop and talk to these paragons of human performance, though, the visitors have consistently but politely been warned off, being told that such an interruption could “damage” the monk, though not the mechanism, other than that it constituted a “shock” to the monk’s system.
Contrary to what we might think from the news and films, even modern combat requires a lot of walking, and there are many places where vehicles can’t go at all. The British relearned this lesson the hard way in the Falklands when they suddenly found themselves deprived of helicopters after the transport Atlantic Conveyor was sunk, forcing them to send heavily laden, hungry troops on a grueling cross-country march across the island en route to a battle at Goose Green. Plenty of battles have been won throughout history by forces which simply outmarched their foes and seized critical ground first. What if the Indians could train their troops to get into a mental state in which they could consistently move at a pace faster than the other side could even force march its own troops?
Modern armies tend to use a lot of heavy equipment, such as armored combat tractors, cranes, bridgelayers and so forth to assist them in their tasks, though there is still plenty of manual labor involved in digging fighting positions, filling sandbags, building bunkers, and the like. What if, though, there was another way to get these sorts of results, but without all that gear and consequent maintenance and logistic requirements? Turns out the Tibetans have something stunning to offer—acoustic lifting and positioning of heavy objects. Yes, you read that correctly!
Antigravity researcher Bruce Cathie, in his monograph “Acoustic Levitation of Stones,” part of Anti-gravity and the World Grid, David Hatcher-Childress, editor, describes how in 1939 a Swedish doctor named Jarl, while on a scholarly visit to Egypt from Oxford, was contacted by a messenger from a Tibetan friend who’d been a fellow student with him in England. The messenger bore an urgent request that Dr. Jarl go to Tibet and treat an old sick Lama (Tibetan monk). The Lama was important, Dr. Jarl’s visit was long, and because of this, he was given not only unprecedented access to what was traditionally hidden, but was even allowed to film it! And what films! They showed carefully arrayed drummers, trumpeters and singing, chanting monks aligned in a 90-degree arc 63 meters (206 feet) from a 1 x 1.5 meter (~3.3 x 4.9′ no third dimension given, but probably 1 meter to match the bowl description) stone set in a 1-meter bowl in a flat polished stone in the meadow. The instruments amounted to 13 drums and six Tibetan trumpets. What happened next bears direct quotation:
“When the stone was in position the monk behind the small drum gave a signal to start the concert. The small drum had a very sharp sound, and could be heard even with the other instruments making a terrible din. All the monks were singing and chanting a prayer, slowly increasing the tempo of this unbelievable noise. During the first four minutes nothing happened, then as the speed of the drumming and the noise increased, the big stone block started to rock and sway, and suddenly it took to the air with an increasing speed in the direction of the platform in front of the cave hole 250 meters high. After three minutes of ascent it landed on the platform.”
“Continuously they brought new blocks to the meadow, and the monks, using this method, transported 5 to 6 blocks per hour on a parabolic flight track approximately 500 meters long and 250 meters high.” (writer’s emphasis, ed.)
For those of you not accustomed to the metric system, that’s repeatedly and in a controlled manner, using nothing but concentrated sound and prayer, launching rocks weighing hundreds of pounds 82 stories high and almost a third of a mile downrange. In this case, the rocks were being used on a high cliff ledge, accessible only from above by the monks in the work party, to wall off a natural tunnel. Just think what it would’ve taken otherwise, in both equipment and labor in that most out of way place, to do this job. Even today it would be a big, expensive job.
The military applications of this acoustic levitation approach were so patently obvious that the English Scientific Society, for which Dr. Jarl worked, seized the two stunning films Dr. Jarl shot, declaring them “classified.” They were not to be released until 1990, and the writer doesn’t know whether or not this in fact occurred.
The referenced monograph contains a much fuller description, together with a detailed discussion of the underlying special mathematics thought to make the levitation phenomenon work.
Same or Better Result, Different Approach
One of the recurring themes in this magazine and in much of the writer’s own delvings is that there are lots of ways to get a given effect, and it most assuredly doesn’t have to be the way it’s done in the West. A simple example still true today is in saw design. Western handsaws cut on the downstroke, whereas Japanese saws, having their teeth the reverse of those on our saws, cut on the upstroke, a method they deem more “harmonious” and in an animist perspective, “respectful to the wood.” Judging by their long history of magnificent wooden constructions ranging from puzzle boxes to temples, this hasn’t hurt them in the slightest. Indeed, certain Japanese woodworkers’ creations are heavily collected in the West, precisely because of their elegance and craftsmanship.
The above is but the microcosm of a much larger point. Most of us in the West, especially in the scientific, technical, and medical communities, tend to think that our way is the only and best way, when the evidence clearly shows that many of our “greatest discoveries” and “most fantastic achievements” are merely recapitulations of what was done hundreds, thousands, and sometimes even tens of thousands of years before. Embarrassing and upsetting, but all too true! This leads to what the Bible so eloquently calls “straining at the gnat.”
Christopher Dunn has shown, for example, that even the most modern granite machining techniques could not produce the fantastic flatness and orthogonality he personally saw and measured within the granite sarcophagus in the Serapeum at Saqqara and inside the Great Pyramid at Giza. Unfazed, though, mainstream archaeology continues to hold that this was done with Eyeball Mark One, copper chisels and diorite balls. Sure! We’re likewise told that a million 2.5-ton limestone blocks were moved on sledges (with or without rollers) up gently sloping ramps to build the Great Pyramid, conveniently forgetting the core of said pyramid was made from 70-ton blocks of granite!
Trepanning (cutting holes in the skull) was once thought to be a modern technique—until evidence was found that Neanderthals did it and patients survived for years afterward. The obsidian blades of the ancients turn out to have been sharper than our finest steel surgical knives, and they are now back in use as scalpels. We thought we figured out how to make and use electricity, only to discover that the ancients were electroplating base metals with gold and now have evidence the Egyptians may have had some sort of electric lights. Western clockmakers were very impressed with themselves until the ancient Greeks’ Antikythera device, with its ability to track and predict complex astronomical phenomena via an incredibly intricate system of gears, appeared and only recently was definitively analyzed and reconstructed.
“Okay. Okay. The ancients did some incredible stuff, but we invented the Bomb!” Sorry, late there, too, as attested not just in the Ramayana and the Vedas, but in the very walls of Mohenjo Daro, where researchers have found not only the same terrible “human shadows” that were created at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but also elevated radiation levels, a situation also found where Sodom and Gomorrah once stood and where longstanding tradition warns not to water the animals, lest they sicken and die, verified per Zechariah Sitchin, through scientific tests in the 1930s. And did you know that the correct translation from the Hebrew, for the “pillar of salt” Lot’s wife was turned into in the Bible, should actually read a “pillar of ash,” exactly what briefly happens to people close to Ground Zero when a nuclear or thermonuclear weapon detonates? This is tame compared to the wealth of explicit and even gory accounts we find in the Hindu sacred literature, with cities shattered, armies consumed in pillars of smoke and worse. As if that’s not bad enough, missiles and beam weapons of several sorts were also in use!
Impressive as all these ancient achievements are, though, even they are not the main point made in the India Daily article or that the writer seeks to make, which is that the more truly advanced a society becomes, the less it needs technology per se. And the more it’s able to accomplish things through thought and focused will, what the article terms “spiritual power,” a concept we encounter again and again in ancient texts, in discussions with shamans, and in a stack of UFO contactee reports.
We read that certain native cultures (e.g., the Hopi and the Australian aborigines), by eschewing the advantages of modern life, act as a substantial and conscious offset to the stress and strain inflicted on the planet by the “life in the fast lane” high-tech cultures. We read that what less advanced civilizations do with technology, more advanced ones do through the powers of their minds, literally molding reality to suit their needs. Which of course goes right back to all those warnings from religious and metaphysical teachers about guarding our thoughts and our tongues.
The positive side of this are concepts such as “conscious creation” and “co-creation.”
Certain sources talk about earth’s being in a quarantine because its inhabitants would cause wholesale havoc in the universe beyond, which works on the principle of bringing things into being by simply speaking them. A familiar, high example of this concept is the divine decree “Let there be Light!” If we here on the planet can’t, though, for whatever reason, manage to live in harmony with each other, can you imagine the incredible upheaval the unsettled minds alone could cause if unleashed upon the galaxy, let alone those deliberately choosing to throw a spanner in the galactic works?
Toward a Hybrid Indian Military
India appears to be following a three-track approach. Numerically, it has one of the largest military forces on the planet. It is also growing increasingly more high tech with each passing year, a trend greatly helped by large numbers of computer and math savvy, well-educated people. India has a considerable and growing industrial and military manufacturing base, allowing it to produce such military sinews as nuclear weapons, computers, electronics and optoelectronics, missiles, aircraft, tanks, artillery, small arms and ammunition domestically, while buying/leasing from other countries (Russian nuclear attack subs) or building what it needs under license (Su-27 fighters). The first two alone make it formidable, but it’s the third leg that puts it into an altogether different realm, for there we find not only the previously mentioned mystical capabilities, which include flying (personal levitation, a la the scientifically much attested David Home in the 1800s) without the need for a James Bond-style jetpack, but a determined effort to harness and exploit precisely the New Energy technologies which struggle to be born in the U.S. We’re talking serious, well-funded work in national research facilities.
