Vasishta ‘head’ Dated 3700 BC ,Attempt to Change the Date


As I have observed in many of my articles, if one finds an article of great antiquity relating to India/Hinduism, attempt is made to  post date it from the scientific date!

This has happened in the case of dating  Krishna’s Dwaraka,Arikkamedu Tamil Nadu,Pallavaram , Tamil Nadu,Rig Veda……

Vasishta's head, copper idol found in Delhi
Vasishta’s head, copper idol found in Delhi

And if the evidence is strong ,take the piece in question to some foreign Museum, as in the case of the inscription in an Egyptian Tomb which contained a verse from the Bhagavad Gita, and make it disappear from the museum!(  in London) 

The piece in question is reported to be in a British Museum.

Now comes another shocker.

The head of sage Vasishta, the Guru of Lord Rama’s Ikshvaku dynasty!

The piece recovered in 1958 from a scrap dealer  by D.Anderson  in Delhi is carbon dated to 3700 BC.

Now comes the twist.

Unable to come to terms with the date of the Piece, attempt is being made to declare that it

 

‘head was not found in an archaeological context, as it was rescued from being melted down in Delhi, and has also been seen of questionable veracity as it bears a legible inscription and could simply have be created by recycling material from older copper.’

If the recycling is done it will reflect in the results.

Now there are  new technologies to check the date accurately.

I am providing the details towards the close of the article.

Shall we question the accuracy of the date of the artifacts found in the West suffer from the same ‘defect’ found in Vasishta’s idol ?

One point  to be admitted is that while dating metals or rocks or inscriptions, the dating is restricted to the material like the rock or the metal.

If it can be solved, and it seems to have been solved, in the case of dating ancient scripts and many metal artfifacts, specially in the West,why deny the courtesy to Vasishta’s idol?

Or is it the usual practice of ‘suppresso veri, suggesto falsi’

-suppress the Truth, suggest the untruth/lie

‘A copper item representing a human head styled in the manner described for Vashistha has been dated to around 3700 BC in three western universities using among other tests carbon 14 tests, spectrographic analysis, X-ray dispersal analysis and metallography.

The head was not found in an archaeological context, as it was rescued from being melted down in Delhi, and has also been seen of questionable veracity as it bears a legible inscription and could simply have be created by recycling material from older copper.

New method of dating for metal objects.

‘How can the age of archeological objects be determined if the well-established carbon dating method does not apply, for example for metal objects? Spanish and Portuguese scientists have now introduced a technique for dating artifacts made of copper and bronze. Presented in the journal Angewandte Chemie, their electroanalytical method is based on the voltammetry of microparticles. It compares various corrosion products that form over long periods of time and works with only a few nanograms of material so it causes almost no damage.

Voltammetric experiments produce current–voltage curves that have characteristic shapes for many compounds. In order to date copper-containing, archaeological finds, a team led by Antonio Doménech-Carbó at the University of Valencia examined the ratios of two different copper oxides, tenorite and cuprite, that can be differentiated and quantified based on their voltammetric curves.

When they are exposed to air, copper surfaces become covered by a natural layer of cuprite (Cu2O). Over time, this layer is slowly converted to other products of corrosion. As copper-containing objects age in a slightly corrosive environment, without contact with soils or sea air, a layer of tenorite (CuO) continuously forms over the primary cuprite patina. This occurs because cuprite reacts with oxygen from the air to preferentially form tenorite in an atmosphere containing CO2 or in the presence of calcareous materials. Examination of copper coins by scanning electron microscopy coupled with X-ray spectroscopy confirmed the presence of cuprite and tenorite.

To carry out the electroanalytical experiments, the researchers impregnate a graphite bar electrode with paraffin and dab the surface of the artefact with it. A few nanograms of the sample surface stick to the electrode, which is then dipped into an aqueous electrolyte. This causes almost no damage to the object. Copper oxide microparticles result in very characteristic peaks in the resulting current–voltage curves.

Of particular interest to the researchers is the ratio of the current peaks for tenorite and cuprite. It shows a steady increase with increasing corrosion time, as demonstrated with a series of antique coins from various collections, including the Prehistory Museums of València and Xàtiva (Spain), as well as the artificial ageing of Euro cent coins made of copper. The researchers were able to use the coins to establish a calibration curve that can be used to date objects of unknown age.

The voltammetric dating of a water pitcher from the Caliphal period and a Montefortino helmet from the Roman age gave ages of 1050±80 and 2150±150 years, respectively, which agree well with dates previously established from the archaeological context.

Greeks Reference In India Texts 2000 BC


Ancient Indians considered Life to be ephemeral, transient and concentrated on realising the Reality and were concerned about the origin of the world and other philosophical questions.

As such,they did not consider it worthwhile recording history or personal achievements.

Religious texts were transmitted orally.

And then came the invaders.

Vasishtas Fourteen Dravidian Tribes Greeks Chinese Huns


There was a Dravida Civilization in the South before or started with Manu in the south of Vindhyas,

The tribes of Dravidas were left behind by Manu when he left for Ayodhya,

Sage Vasista stayed in the South,

Later when Viswamitra banished his sons to the south, Dravida civilization was in existence during the Ramayana period,

Dravidians were called as Dasyus because of their way of Life was different from Sanatana Dharam though they followed the Sanatana Dharma.

These Dravidian tribes included the ancestors of Greeks, other European tribes, Chinese and Huns.

Ganesa Devi in Mooladhara Siddhas Explain


The process of Vaasi is difficult for people,except for those who are gifted. To solve this,Siva had advised Patanjali to simplify Vaasi and introduce a yoga practice that would elevate one to Vaasi consciousness from where Vassi Yoga will take over. Accordingly Patanjali composed Yoga Sutra ,laying emphasis on postures ,followed by Pranayama.
