THE RACE IS ON FOR INVISIBILITY

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.

German Scientists Invent Invisibility Cloak

Invisibility Technology and Wormholes

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...

  1. Joseph…I thought you might be interested in something I stumbled on a while ago while working on a project with a brilliant engineer. He and I were talking one day about some of the things we had worked on and he began to tell me about a project he worked on that utilized jet engines to generate a plasma levitation force. He said they built this circular platform with the jet engine generators and other components and when they fired it up the device created this blue plasma “cloud” that allowed the platform to rise up and levitate all the way up “to the edge of space”(his words). If you like I can give you his name in a PM. He’s still around and has done some pretty amazing things. His background is in physics and engineering and he’s very talented.

  2. Heed the warning indeed, Joseph! Once the “genie” is out of the bottle, it can’t be put back! I remember that at one time the late Carl Sagan expressed the concern of a “Tunguska” size asteroid impact could accidentally trigger nuclear war between the Warsaw Pact and Nato; as such I suggest the ancient Cosmic War might have been similarly triggered by some unanticipated natural cosmic event….

    1. Going with your excellent researches, Joseph, to clarify the above post, I’m thinking of a natural cosmic event as postulated by Paul A. LaViolette or even Immanuel Velikovsky that could potentially disrupt an ancient Very High Civilization into launching an accidental terminal war. All the while understanding the each side is always looking for ways to subvert the other; history repeating itself over and over again!

      1. I am just not a catastrophist in the standard sense. As I detailed in The Cosmic War, there are some problems with that cosmological view, not the least of which is I think a case can be made that the cyclic catastrophism that so many write about is the RESULT of that war, not its cause.

        1. Which reminds me of how awfully close we came to terminal war during the autumn 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis! When push comes to shove in a frightfully intense situation such as this, even a relatively small miscalculation can spell the ULTIMATE DISASTER!! I tend to agree with you, Joseph, all things considered! Keep up the good work; my library will feature all of your books in the FRONT ROW! Ha!!
