Demiurgic Weaponry in Indian Mythology
After the Atlantean and subsequent cataclysms, technologically advanced survivors fractured into various populations that colonized separate areas around the globe. Wherever they went, they commandeered the local native population. It was typical for a small number of fair skinned elite
to rule over a vast population of darker skinned primitives
One group of survivors colonized Northern India and became the Indo-Aryans
, whose symbol was the swastika
. They impressed upon the natives the foundations of the Vedic culture, which included the caste system, complicated metaphysics, technological instructions, and myths encoding the antediluvian history of their people. They took up elite roles as scientist-priests, known as Brahmins, and were the earliest of the Brahmin kings. The same pattern played out elsewhere with the Chinese, Celtic, Meso-American, Sumerian and Egyptian cultures.
The Indo-Aryan culture contributed significantly to what was later woven into the two major Indian epics, the Mahabharata and Ramayana. Like the Old Testament, there is a layer of technological information embedded in these myths. As is well known, the Indian epics contain detailed information on flying vehicles called Vimanas. Another example is the divine weaponry employed in their wars, which are fundamentally demiurgic in operation.
Professor Jarrod Whitaker wrote an interesting paper systematizing the use of demiurgic energy in divine weaponry:
[I]n no other mythological corpus is the concept of divine weapons more developed and more complex than in the two Indian epics.
[T]he divine weapons cannot be properly understood without a comprehensive examination of the concept of tejas or “fiery energy.” [B]ecause tejas govern the way the divine weapons operate in the mythology, the primary aim of the following paper is to outline its “intrinsic laws” and to codify them systematically into a working model.
[T]he fire of the divine weapons is not the element itself, but the more subtle energy-substance tejas or “fiery energy”. These are not weapons of fire per se, but weapons of energy.
The Sanskrit word derives from the root tij- meaning “to be sharp”. […] By the time of the Upanisads, tejas surpasses oPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
