The Origin of Avatar
Modern culture has found a new ‘buzz’ word, Avatar. It is used as a sign or a symbolic representation of a person in blogs and forums. But no one in the world knows the origin of Avatar, or the plural Avatara (in Sanskrit). To understand these ancient words, or concepts, one must understand the ancient world during the Bronze and Iron ages when all three of the other terrestrial planets, Mars, Venus and Mercury, were within 33,000 km of the Earth.
In my Biblical or cyclic catastrophism, the most ancient terrestrial planet, priori-Mars, approached and became captured in a geosynchronous orbit for fifteen years and was released into its planetary orbit for an equal period of time. This cycle occurred one hundred times, between 3700 and 700 BC, and was initiated by Jehovah in order to transfer all the water, atmosphere and innumerable seeds from this formerly living planet to the Earth in order to support our present great population.
Each time priori-Mars was captured in orbit a number of events occurred on its surface which were observed by millions of people. These included tidal flooding, wide spread volcanism, and when the two bodies passed through alignments with the Moon, or Moon and Sun combined, great convulsions within the planet shot large glowing bodies into the solar system. When in this orbit, priori-Mars appeared 500 times the size of the full Moon, and was the ‘talk of the town’ – the TV for the entire world.
Upon each capture, all of the water in its northern hemisphere flowed to its north pole, which remained pointing toward the Earth, forming what scientists now call the Oceanus Borealis or northern ocean. More slowly, but inexorably, the tidal force of the Earth reduced the pressure on the subsurface rocks at its north pole. They began to melt and the magma was drawn toward the surface through many cracks resulting from Marsquakes. This magma first appeared within the northern sea, and was seen as a glowing ball of lava. This was the ‘mundane egg’, a universal concept in all ancient cultures, as can easily be seen by Googling the term. This ball of lava grew and grew, as illustrated in the Hindu myth of Manu who found a small fish in his sink and put it in a jar. But the fish kept growing, so he put it in a fishtank, a river, a lake and finally in an ocean. Manu finally realized that the fish was Brahma himself. What this and many similar myths mean is that the ball of magma grew until finally it rose above the surface of the Oceanus Borealis at the north pole of priori-Mars. The ancient Egyptians celebrated the appearance of this ‘risen land, which marked the ‘first time.’’
These same events occurred at every capture of priori-Mars and the peoples of the world knew the sequence of events that were to follow because they were repeated every thirty years – for one hundred generations. Each time the magma first appeared above the waters, the resulting land took on a different shape. The Hindus named each one based on the animal that it resembled, such as a fish, a boar, a turtle. There were probably one hundred all together – one for each capture of priori-Mars. Each of these was originally called an Avatara of Brahma, but later favoritism toward Vishnu prevailed and the same became Avataras of Vishnu. In the Hindu period the true nature of the events of the Vedic period were already being lost and more and more such ‘revisions’ appear in the Maharabata, Puranas, and Upanishads. It was called Ta-tenen , meaning ‘risen land’, in Egyptian myth where it was imagined to resemble a crocodile or hippopotamus, animals with which they were familiar.
The reason these should be called Avataras or incarnations of Brahma was that the lava flow continued to increase until, eventually, a giant hardened lava column grew as high as 1,000 kilometers from the north pole of priori-Mars. This unbelievable height was only made possible by the great tidal force of the nearby Earth. This was Brahma, the most imposing of all the features on the surface of priori-Mars and therefore the most important deity in every culture. It was Prajapati or Purusha in the Vedas, Osiris in Egyptian myth, Zeus in Greek myth. It was also Atlas in Greek and Shu, the uplifter, in Egyptian myth, because extending down toward the Earth, it was thought to be the deity that was holding up priori-Mars, which remained stationary in the heavens, preventing it from falling to Earth. Egyptian art of the Amarna era clearly shows the enormous size of this feature in relation to the planet itself.
