THE RACE IS ON FOR INVISIBILITYJanuary 21, 2011
In my book The Giza Death Star Destroyed I cited at length the Babylonian "creation epic", the Enuma Elish (p. 42 ff.). In my interpretation, the Enuma Elish is less a "creation epic" as it is a "cosmic war epic," as Marduk is outfitted with a variety of magical devices to give him supremacy over his opponent, the goddess Tiamat. One of these is a "stealth suit" that is described in evocative terms by the ancient epic: "Command now and let the garment vanish, and speak the word again and let the garment reappear! Then (Marduk) spake with his mouth, and the garment vanished; Again he commanded it, and the garment reappeared." (cited in The Giza Death Star Destroyed, p. 42.)
Well, science once again appears poised to give technological expression to very ancient epics. Consider only the following two articles, among many others, on the subject of modern man's quest for the technologies of invisibility.
Rounding out this picture, Dover Publications has recently even published a highly mathematical study of the theory behind some of these technologies called Geometry and Light by Ulf Leonhardt and Thomas Philbin.
What emerges from all this is that, when viewed a certain way, modern science is creating the very technologies to bring the magic of mythologies into the reality of technology. We are, quite literally, involved in the recreation of the "era of the ancient gods." Lest we forget, those ancient texts warn, time and again, of what happened to that ancient Very High Civilziation, as those technologies were deployed to tear it apart in a paroxysm of war and calamity. We had best heed the warning...
