"Is it up to time? Or is it up to us?" I think its both. There's an appropriate time for every action. Even during the course of the day we follow this implicitly. Ever get up in the middle of the night for a skydiving adventure? Kali Yuga is the night of all creatures, which is why most people seem to be blissfully asleep, and we rarely hear of any great, mind-altering adventures. Th

Hi Walter, All the technologies that you have just mentioned will become irrelevant in a hundred years time. These technologies, and the ones that preceded them, are important in the material age, the ascending Kali, when we are disconnected from the realms of the spirit. They act as bridges, as stepping stones to the higher age, as tools to recover the lost knowledge. When we have crossed ove

Hello Caugusto, I did not find any evidence in the thread which suggests that the ancients believed in a precessional cycle of 25,920 years, except for the mention of the fact that the number 72 is present in some ancient archaeological structures. We cannot assume that this is a precessional number. It could mean something entirely different. Many such numbers are encoded into the ancient struc

Hi Walter, The astrological ages will never coincide with the beginning / ending of the yugas since there are 12 astrological ages in the 24,000 year cycle and only 8 yugas ( 4 in the descending cycle and 4 in the ascending cycle) in the same period. Which is why I am wondering why the these two separate concepts have been brought together. As you have pointed out, the astrological age can be

Hi Walter, I agree with your descriptions of gradual transition that takes place during the 'sandhi' period. However, according to Yukteswar the 200 year sandhi was completed in 1899 CE, so by now we should have been flooded by the new light of the Dwapara, the flowers should have been in bloom, consciousness expanded, and so on. Instead, the present era seems more like the 'darkness before the

Hi Walter, Thanks for taking a look at the article and sharing your feedback. I will look forward to a more detailed discussion with you on this topic once you get the time to read the entire article and examine it critically. I just want to point out that the timeline based on the Saptarsi Calendar is based on the argument that the descending Dwapara began in 6676 BC. This implies that the des

Dear Walter, Thanks for the offer to discuss these issues face to face. It shall be on the top of my mind, next time I am in America. In the meanwhile, I will take a look at the book you recommended. On the face of it I have some doubts about their interpretation. The Yuga Cycle theory takes care of some of these issues through the concept of "transitional periods". Besides, weather

Hi Walter The beginning and ending dates of the Kali Yuga that had been postulated by Yukteswar in the Holy Science does not conform to actual historical facts or the definitions of the Yugas provided in the ancient texts. Here's why I think so: Yukteswar states that 499 CE is the beginning of the ascending cycle, and he supports this by saying that, “The period around AD 500 was thus the darke

Hi Walter, You have mentioned that scientists assume a "static solar system", and an "immovable sun" to explain changes in earth orientation. I am not sure I understand. Scientists clearly agree on the fact that the Solar System exhibits 3 types of motion: 1. The solar system rovolves around the GC at a speed of 217.215 Km/s. 2. The solar system moves up and down the plane

Hi Walter, Back in 1984, when Davis, Hut, and Muller had proposed the Nemesis hypothesis to explain the 26 million year cycle of mass extinctions, they had proposed the idea of a companion star of the Sun with a 26 Myr cycle, which periodically disturbs the comets in the Oort cloud that surrounds our Solar System, with a consequential increase in impact events on Earth. According to their estim

Hi Walter, 1. The fact that the Earth does not precess with respect to objects within the Solar System indicates that all the objects within the Solar System experience precession at the same rate. Hence, precession must be due to an "additional motion" of the Solar System. How do scientists who advocate the lunisolar thory react to such rational observations? 2. Now that Curiosity Ro

Welcome Walter, I had read your book "Lost Star of myth and time" a long time back and had found it very interesting and informative. I am sure your new book will light up young minds with a new spirit of inquiry and fascination. The Cycles of time are indeed worth pondering about. Each of these cycles, from the largest to the smallest, has a waveform structure with ascending and desc

Hello folks, I just joined the message board in order to put a few questions to John Anthony West, and I can see that a thread had been opened on my recent article on the end of the Kali Yuga in 2025. Andy has raised a very important point - what causes the dramatic changes in consciousness and the entire ecosystem on planet earth at the beginning of every Yuga? In my opinion, the answer proba

Dear John, Firstly, thank you for your revolutionary work and for being a tireless advocate of the high wisdom of the ancients. I have a few questions for you. 1. Is it possible that "Punt" was a reference to the Indus Valley civilization? 2. What could have led to the cranio-facial and genetic linkages between the pre-dynastic Egyptians and the Dravidians of India? 3. There are st
