The whole idea of space travel, would by most people, be a talk of fiction, or at least the whole idea would of come from some sort of fictional art. Movies and T.V. shows is where I first heard of the idea of space travel as a child, and then learned of the Moon landings by NASA (National Aeronautical and Space Administration) in 1969 (NASA, Wikipedia, 2021), from school in the 1970’s. It was the show Star Trek (Star Trek, Wikipedia, 2021) that first got my young untrained mind into the whole thought of being in space and traveling at great speeds. Again, Star Trek is a work of fiction, and believe it or not, some people do not believe that the Moon landing was even real, and was a hoax, just Google search Moon Landing Hoax and read on! The question is, are the ideas of space travel, whether fictional or not, a modern era creation?
With the creation of the internet, and the delivering of information to Billions at the almost the speed of light, it is easy to find information of History. The Egyptians, along with India have amazing stories of beings or Gods having flying machines or crafts that would fly, and many instances it was recorded that they could also travel outside of our world, or in space. Another ancient civilization that mentioned such attributes was the ancient Mayans, they have many stories of Gods coming from the sky in flying machines. The Hopi, a tribe of Native America, located in the southwest region of the United States also have stories of God and Gods coming down from the Sky in Machines. In recent times the Archeological discovery of ancient Sumerian texts, with it being translated, has lead the world of those interested, into a very detailed story of the their Gods and where they come from, and how they got here. Most of these stories are at the most recent close to 3000 years old. As mentioned earlier in the paragraph, Ancient India has a complete and detailed story of a flying Machine called the Vimana. A flying machine of the Gods. These writings are so detailed that it goes into the engine that propels this flying machine. The Vedas are ancient Sanskrit writings from India that are 6000 years old. With all this information about ancient civilizations having knowledge of ancient air crafts and how they were propelled, is an obvious answer to the questions asked in the opening paragraph, flying machines and the ability to travel at great speeds in space is not a new idea nor is it fiction.
Is the engine that NASA creating the future? In the sense that for our recent construction of civilization, yes, but in the big picture, with the archeologic discovery’s, from an ancient time, it is just a repeat, but instead of the Gods having these machines, now we, their creation, are doing what we were created to do, and that is evolve psychologically and socially to what they are. To be space bound, as to end up pollinating other planets with life, such like Bee’s do with flowers, as our creators did to our planet. “Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground (Holy Bible, NIV, 2011).” Yes the bible speaks of our purpose, more than once. The Epic of Gilgamesh, is tale of creation from the Sumerian point of view, and there are so many instances of reflections of story’s that one can find in the Holy Bible (Epic Of Gilgamesh, Wikipedia, 2021). It is easy to come to a conclusion that this could be the reason why Gods are not around as much as it seems they were in ancient times. They, the God’s, knew what Human Beings were going to evolve to, God’s like them, and now hide in fear.
