I want to talk today about Brahma and Ginnungagap. I think it is important that if we are to understand our place as Europeans and as human being it is important for us to understand creation, how it was we got here and why, and where we will eventually end up; where better to start than at the very beginning, when Brahma sang us into existence from the primordial waters of Ginnungagap.
You may be confused as to why I am mentioning Brahma on a blog about European religion and history. “Brahma is one of the Hindu ones, isn’t he?”
|Father Óðinn with
Huggin and Munnin.
|Tabaldak, the Sky God of
some Native Canadians tribes.
The short answer to that is yes, the long answer results in no. Brahma, Odinn, Ra, Dyaus Pitr, Jupiter, Zeus pater, the Native American Tabaldak or whatever you want to call the Blessed Lord are one and the same being.
How do I know this? Well, I’ll save the long winded version for its own article but the short summary is that all religion that has been untainted by invasion, racial hybridization and Abrahamization is thus pure, divinely derived and is all correct. All non-Jewish traditions have managed to express the metaphysical in their own unique and beautiful way (even the Semites themselves a very long time ago, before Babylon); it is only the Middle Eastern mongrel hybrids that seek to sow division between peoples and destroy this knowledge and harmony, and destroy the real diversity and multiculturalism. Thats by the by for now though.
What I really want to talk about here is blending the observable with the unseen, the physical with the metaphysical, the religious with the scientific. I want to resolve arguably the biggest question of the last century: Where does our understanding of geology, cosmology and evolution fit in with religious views on creation of the world and everything within it? Its something that Jewish front of Shabbat goy (Christians) have not been able to answer for.
I am going to compose an entire series of articles on the entire process of creation, evolution and reincarnation, with these being the starting article focusing entirely on the creation of the Universe, its end and the life span of the Gods, touching briefly on the ideas of eternity and time.
It is fundamental to our understanding of creation that we understand that everything we have been taught about time is at a fundamental level incorrect. Time is circular, not linear. We perceive time as if it stretches out into infinity with an indeterminately distant beginning but no discernible ending either. The reality is that time exists circularly in that it never began and will never end. When the Universe bloomed, it bloomed from the death of the previous Universe like a phoenix from the ashes. There was no original universe, just eternity and the Gods. In traditional religion, everything is set to revert back to its original state, with creation and destruction an endless to and fro.
|For most of human existence, man has peacefully evolved within the
Satya Yugas, the ages of peace, knowledge and perfect understanding.
According to pre-Christian tradition, the Universe exists in several different stages that help us to understand how the Gods and science combine. There are four types of age that the earth cycles through, known as Yugas. We are currently in the Kali Yuga which the last one in the current cycle. The entire cycle lasts for 4.32 million years and is known as a Mahayuga. When the Kali Yuga ends in around 400’000 years, it spells the beginning of a new Mahayuga as the age of filth, misery and sin comes to an end. I touched briefly on this during article 5. There are 1000 Mahayugas in one divine day, which equates to the age of our Earth at the current time. Exactly one Kalpa/divine day ago, our Earth was formed within the cosmos by Odinn/Brahma/Tabaldak/Jupiter/Dyaus Pita/Zeus:
|Our Earth has existed for the length of one day in the eyes of the Gods.
Tolkien’s Undying Lands were built around our European mythology.
He left many subliminal messages across his books in reference to myth.
One Mahayuga, which is comprised of the four yugas (eras) is one full cycle of prosperity, increasing difficulty and suffering leading to an eventual age of ignorance resulting in “no subjects being left on the subject of God”. A Mahayuga lasts around 4’320’000 (4.32 million) years. Even the Universe cycles in and out of existence, through creation, development and destruction, as do the Gods. The difference being that Gods are not creations, but rather formless ideas forces of energy like those of gravity which naturally exist both inside and around spacetime.
To summarize the periods of time:
1 Yuga: A period of time that lasts several hundred thousand years. There are four types of Yugas; going from the perfect and peaceful Satya Yuga to the current Kali Yuga that has just begun and will last 400’000 years.
1 Mahayuga: A complete cycle through the Yugas, lasting 4.32 million years. We are near the end of the current Mahayuga, which means that the last age of complete peace and prosperity on Earth, IE the last Golden Age would have been around 3.8 million years ago.
71 Mahayuga constitute a Manvantara, totaling 306 million years. At the end of the Manvantara, a new species of superior beings begins to evolve.
Each Mavantara is ruled over by one Manu (which translates as Man, or superior species), a race created by the Gods. In this Manvantara, this is humans but this will certainly be a different form of Manu in the next Manvantara that will probably look like an alien species to us and may not be on Earth. When the current Manvantara ends in around
, there will be a great submersion of the Earth which will allow the new Manu to evolve throughout the next Manvantara just as we have.The reason why there is no life on other planets and, it is my strong suspicion that no life will ever be found there is that our planet has been specifically chosen to fit with these mathematical units of divine time and has been selected as a divinely designed microcosm.
1 Kalpa/Day of Brahma (translated as “that which transcends our time”):
1000 Mahayuga, One day for Brahma/Odinn which is 4.32 Billion years. We are currently in the 7th Manvantara of the current Kalpa. IE there have been 7 iterations of sophisticated life (Manu) in this Universe before us, who are all descended from the 7th Manu Vaivasyata.1 Kalpa loosely corresponds to estimations of the age of the Earth.
According to pre-Christian religion, how old is the Earth?
Unlike Abrahamic religion, the knowledge transcribed from pre-Christian religion is in line with scientific findings from recent times. 4 Kalpas, two days and two nights of Brahma are said to have elapsed. Do the maths on that one: the age of the current Universe is estimate at around 13.8 billion years, which is just under 4 Kalpas. So unlike the Bible version, man was created around the 4th day, not the 6th.
When will our Universe end, according to pre-Christian religion?
There will be a time, at the end of 100 Brahma years, that even Brahma himself will end and with him our universe, and another Brahma will take his place. I can not pretend I know what happens to Brahma/Óðinn when his day ends but the Bhagavad Gita (Sanskrit for “Song of the Blessed Lord”) describes the multiverse as a bubbling sea like that of the Atlantic, with the Brahma as bubbles and our existence within them; a new bubble is formed and another disintegrating soon afterwards comprised of the same basic substance.
|Kala/Kali, the Goddess of time stomping on Shiva.
Kronos/Cronus is the ancient Greek equivalent.
The life of Brahman lasts for 100 divine years, which equals 36’000 Kalpas. The concept of such large periods of time is very overwhelming I know; this corresponds to 311.04 Trillion years before everything ends and another “Universe”/Eternity/substance is formed from the material of this spacetime (created by the only eternal God Kala) within the Causal Sea/Ginnungagap. However, to blow your mind further, this time period is absolutely inconceivably small in relation to eternity which is also circular.
The only thing eternal is the energy of Kala itself, or circularity. Kala could be crudely described as a personification of time but as we have discussed within the larger perspective of eternity time is rather abject of value in of itself. Cronus, the Greek deity, is a European equivalent of the Hindu Kala.
Even the Bible speaks of the time before the creation of the world in this same manner: Genesis 1:1-2
|The greek God of time, Cronus, devouring his child.
This is symbolic of how time destroys
everything that it creates eventually.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
This passage must refer to the same waters as the “Causal Ocean” referenced in the Bhagavad Gita, which was spoken by Krishna some 3500 years before Christ and probably before the Jews composed the Old Testament. Since The passage does not reference that God created any oceans or seas yet, I cannot think of what other “waters” the passage could refer to.
I hope this article has taught you some useful information into unveiling the truth structure of the Universe, teaching about traditional religion and attempting to tie religious knowledge to scientific conjectures. I will be following on from this article with a series on this topic. The next one will pertain to evolution, further explore the concept of Manu, and go into depth on the incarnations of Vishnu and how they correspond to prehistory and anthropology.
Heil to the histories! Heil to understanding our place in the cosmos, despite the continuous distraction that seeks to pull us away from discovering our true purpose and significance.
A Concluding passage from Hesiod’s Works and Days:
For the son of Cronos has ordained this law for men, that fishes and beasts and winged fowls should devour one another, for right is not in them; but to mankind he gave right which proves far the best. For whoever knows the right and is ready to speak it, far-seeing Zeus gives him prosperity; but whoever deliberately lies in his witness and foreswears himself, and so hurts Justice and sins beyond repair, that man’s generation is left obscure thereafter. But the generation of the man who swears truly is better thenceforward.
Badness can be got easily and in shoals; the road to her is smooth, and she lives very near us. But between us and Goodness the gods have placed the sweat of our brows; long and steep is the path that leads to her, and it is rough at the first; but when a man has reached the top, then is she easy to reach, though before that she was hard. That man is altogether best who considers all things himself and marks what will be better afterwards and at the end; and he, again, is good who listens to a good adviser; but whoever neither thinks for himself nor keeps in mind what another tells him, he is an unprofitable man.
|The Song of the Blessed Lord Krishna describes the multiverse as a primordial sea,
kind of like the Ginnungagap of Norse Mythology from which Odinn was licked.
I covered that briefly in article 5. In this primordial sea, we are like singularities with
Gods as tiny bubbles,dying and being born all the time.
