5,000 Years of Geocentric Flat Earth Cosmology
Why were we never taught in school that for 5,000 years nearly every culture and religion had a geocentric, the universe revolves around us, teaching and belief systems?
From the Ancient Far East Asians to the ancient Vedics, Babylonians, Chaldeans, Egyptians, Buddhists, Summerians, Greeks, Nordic Vikings as well as most ancient Native American cultures, including the Mayans, Toltecs, Cherokees, Aztecs, etc. all had a universal geocentric belief system of how our common cosmos functions. Yet since the days of modern science, most have been kept completely unaware and unknowing as the fact that Earth was thought to be the center of this Uni-verse, of which many religions believed there be many verses of vast periods of times.
The Roman Catholic church, the ones who allegedly yielded their knowledge of a geocentric Earth to the findings of provable science, became the “bad guys” who reluctantly had to yield to sciences proofs and demonstrable reality of a heliocentric, we go around the Sun, cosmic “proof”.
Yet, as we shall see in this book, the Roman Catholic church is, and has always been, the largest and longest owners of telescopes in the world today with partners at major universities and NASA affiliates. It is even a fact that the original Big Bang Theory was admittedly thought and created by a Jesuit priest named, Georges Lemaitre during the time of Albert Einstein, who is now proven out to have plagiarized much work from others to achieve his famous E = mc2 Theory of Relativity when he made up an entirely man-made element, “Time”, and called it a naturally occurring phenomena in Nature, where Nature knows no such thing.
Why the heliocentric theory was created some 500 years ago is open for serious debate yet it appears the powers in charge, and still in charge today, the Vatican, the Society of Jesus, the Crown and all their secret societies, listed in Appendix I?, created the Big Bang heliocentric theory so that we would lose our understanding of how powerful and unique we are as to have an entire cosmology dedicated to our personal spiritual advancement as Co-Creators with God on this Earth. You can read more about this in Appendix I.
The following is a very short snapshots into the various geocentric cosmology from around the world that follow a flat earth, domed sphere with ice walls holding the oceans in with heaven realms above and hell realms below, most based on being encased in a watery home.
Still to this day we have little idea about how the Egyptians built the pyramids of Giza, and why. With all our modern technology of scientists and massive engineering equipment, we still have no tools to lift 100 ton monoliths or how to erect 2.3 million perfectly carved stones hundreds of feet into a near perfect pyramid that was encased in limestone, so perfectly set together barely a razor blade can fit in between the cracks.
They were Flat Earth geocentric believers who, still to this day, have left their legends and cosmology etched in the granite walls for all to learn and see. The Egyptians used symbols to tell their stories, since a picture is worth 10,000 words, they were economical in their use of story-telling. They also set their legends in stone that still to this day, some 5,000 – 10, 000 years later, still can be seen and read. In comparison, we have short lived thumb drives and CD-Rom’s to story our memories and legends of our times.
The ancient Egyptians believed the ground was a more or less flat disk that floated upon Nun, the primordial ocean from which creation had begun in time immemorial, and out of which the Nile continued to flow. The sky was a solid, dome-shaped thing, and was often said to be the belly of a goddess – typically Nut or Hathor– whose body arched over the earth, with her feet on one horizon and her hands on the other. Her midsection was held aloft by the air god Shu. The stars glimmered on this goddess’s belly.
Beneath the surface of the earth, either within the waters of Nun or just above them, was the underworld, Duat. Duat was where the sun – and, accordingly, the sun god, who was by turns imagined to be Ra, Atum, Khepri and/or Amun – went when he sank below the horizon in the evening. During the night, he traveled through the underworld in his boat before emerging with the dawn to continue his journey across the heavens.
The underworld was ruled by Osiris. When humans went to the underworld after death, part of them would typically make the sun god’s circular journey with him, and part of them would linger in the underworld with Osiris. During the night, the two parts would be united.
The land of Egypt was thought to lie at the center of the cosmos, both from a horizontal standpoint and from a vertical one. Each temple was held to occupy the precise center of the cosmos, the axis mundi, by those who worshiped there.
The ancient Egyptian word maat has been variously translated as “order,” “truth,” “justice,” and “virtue.” Maat was all of these things and more. It referred to the sacred order and balance of the cosmos. Maat was present in the regular, recurring rhythms of the world – the seasonal rise and fall of the Nile, the daily circle of the sun, etc. – as well as in all proper actions. It was thus a concept that described the nature of reality, as well as an ethical concept that guided behavior. Maat and the cosmos were held together by the actions of the gods and of people, both bound to this timeless standard of rightness.
Each of the Egyptian gods and goddesses was associated with particular forces within what we today would call “nature” – the sun, the Nile, the air, the soil, etc. – which manifested some part of that deity. Not everything in “nature” was considered to be divine; only those forces that upheld and sustained the regular cosmic rhythms were.
Nothing could be assumed to take place mechanically, without the intervention of some active force, because the most basic elements of the world consisted of active forces. Thus, something that modern people would consider as mundane and predictable as a sunrise was cause for ecstatic celebration amongst the ancient Egyptians. If the gods were to leave the world entirely, its underlying structures would be thrown into chaos, and everything that depended on those structures would perish.
Flat Earth Ancient Vedic Cosmology
Vedic myth has much about the galactic centre. The Vedas also speak of a “submarine fire” which:
” …consumeth the waters of the great Ocean, [and which] became like unto a large horse’s head which persons conversant with the Vedas call by the name of Vadavamukha. And emitting itself from that mouth it consumeth the waters of the mighty ocean.”
“Hirto, Son of Neph, born of an egg, descended out of the highest heaven. He was a most gracious Lord, and in deference to Om, smote against the rocks of heaven. So, when the egg was broken, one-half of the shell ascended, the other half became the foundation of the world.”
The Lords’ Fifth Book
“The primeval God transformed himself into a golden egg which was shining like the sun and in which he himself, Brahman, the father of all worlds, was born. He rested a whole year in this egg and then he parted it into two parts through a mere word. From the two shells he formed heaven and earth, in the middle he put the air, and the eight directions of the world, and the eternal dwelling of the water.” Creation of the cosmos in Manu
“And out of those two halves he formed heaven and earth, between them the middle sphere, the eight points of the horizon, and the eternal abode of the waters.”
The Laws of Manu
- Aditya (the sun) is Brahman.
In the beginning this was non-existent. It became existent, it grew. It turned into an egg. The egg lay for the time of a year. The egg broke open. The two halves were one of silver, the other of gold.
- The silver one became this earth, the golden one the sky, the thick membrane (of the white) the mountains, the thin membrane (of the yoke) the mist with the clouds, the small veins the rivers, the fluid the sea.
- And what was born from it that was Aditya, the sun. When he was born shouts of hurrah arose, and all beings arose, and all things which they desired. Therefore, whenever the sun rises and sets, shouts of hurrah arise, and all beings arise, and all things which they desire.
Khandogya-Upanishad Part 2, Third Prapathaka Nineteenth Khanda
Here it should be noted that there is much cosmic egg theory around the ancient world, and even western occultists and alchemists have used it in many symbols – even placing it with a serpent and “above the stars.”
The Churning of the Milky Ocean (Milky Way) is a famous and sacred teaching from the Hindu text the Mahabharata. To churn the ocean, they used the Serpent King, Vasuki, for their churning-string. For a churning pole they use Mount Mandara placed on the back of a Great Tortoise – the Kurma Avatar of Vishnu. As the gods and demons churned the sea, a terrible poison issued out of its depths which enveloped the universe.
Nordic Cosmology; The Nine Worlds
The Nine Worlds (Old Norse Níu Heimar) are the homelands of the various types of beings found in the pre-Christian worldview of the Norse and other Germanic peoples. They’re held in the branches and roots of the world-tree Yggdrasil.
The Nine Worlds as a group are mentioned in a poem in the Poetic Edda. However, no source gives a list of exactly which worlds comprise the nine. Based on the kinds of beings found in Norse mythology and the reference to their homelands in various literary sources, however, we can compile the following tentative reconstruction:
Midgard the world of humanity
Asgard the world of the Aesir tribe of gods and goddesses
Vanaheim, the world of the Vanir tribe of gods and goddesses
Jotunheim, the world of the giants
Niflheim, the primordial world of ice
Muspelhiem, the primordial world of fire
Alfheim, the world of the elves
Svartalfheim, the world of the dwarves
Hel, the world of the eponymous goddess Hel and the dead
With the exception of Midgard, these are all primarily invisible worlds, although, in keeping with the animistic and pantheistic character of pre-Christian Germanic religion, they tend to become manifested in particular aspects of the visible world. For example, Jotunheim overlaps with the physical wilderness, Hel with the grave (the literal “underworld” beneath the ground), and Asgard with the sky.
While we don’t know what exactly the spiritual or magical significance of the number 9 was, it’s clear that this number had such a significance for the pre-Christian Germanic peoples. Philologist Rudolf Simek offers the following summary:
…Nine is the mythical number of the Germanic tribes. Documentation for the significance of the number nine is found in both myth and cult. In Odin’s self-sacrifice he hung for nine nights on the windy tree (Hávamál), there are nine worlds to Niflhel (Vafþrúðnismál 43), Heimdallr was born to nine mothers (Hyndluljóð 35), Freyr had to wait for nine nights for his marriage to Gerd (Skírnismál 41), and eight nights (= nine days?) was the time of betrothal given also in the Þrymskviða. Literary embellishments in the Eddas similarly use the number nine:Skaoi and Njoror lived alternately for nine days in Nóatún and in Þrymheimr; every ninth night eight equally heavy rings drip from the ring Draupnir; Menglöð has nine maidens to serve her (Fjólsvinnsmál 35ff.), and Aegir had as many daughters. Thor can take nine steps at the Ragnarok after his battle with the Midgard serpent before he falls down dead. Sacrificial feasts lasting nine days are mentioned for both Uppsala and Lejre and at these supposedly nine victims were sacrificed each day.
Ancient Buddhists imagined the universe as essentially flat, with Mount Meru at the center of all things. Surrounding this universe was a vast expanse of water, and surrounding the water was a vast expanse of wind.
This universe was made of thirty-one planes of existence, stacked in layers, and three realms, or dhatus. The three realms were Ārūpyadhātu, the formless realm; Rūpadhātu, the realm of form; and Kāmadhātu, the realm of desire. Each of these was further divided into multiple worlds that were the homes of many sorts of beings. This cosmos was thought to be one of a succession of universes coming into and going out of existence through infinite time.
Our world was thought to be a wedge-shaped island continent in a vast sea south of Mount Meru, called Jambudvipa, in the realm of Kāmadhātu. The earth, then, was thought to be flat and surrounded by ocean.
In Tibetan astro science, two distinct flat-earth, stationary, geocentric cosmologies are recognized, both developed in India and later translated into Tibetan. The first is the Abhidharma system, expounded in the 4th or 5th century Indian text Abhidharmakosha (Treasury House of Knowledge) by Vasubandhu, and the Kalachakra system (Wheels of Time), whose root text was translated into Tibetan in 1027 A.D..
Both systems are mandala-like world systems made of concentric oceans and mountain ranges centered around an axis, Mount Meru. The known world exists on one of the four major continents (with other minor accompanying continents), the southern continent, called Jambudvipa. Mount Meru is lapis-blue on our side, which explains why it cannot be seen, but instead blends in with the sky’s color. The heavenly bodies orbit around Mount Meru.
When motivated through the accumulated karma of all the sentient beings that existed in the previous world system, the space particles begin the process of forming a new universe from the reformed elements. First air particles coagulate to form wind, which then causes the fire particles to join and create lightning. From this process water particles form rain, and the resulting rainbows herald the joining of earth particles. The order of this “creation” is mirrored in the structure of the world system in the Abhidharma and Kalachakra systems depicted above, with the air disk being the lowest layer of the base of the world, topped in succession by disks of fire, water, and earth. Sentient beings begin to populate all possible realms (e.g. various hell realms, animal, human, and deities). During this stage, humans are granted an “infinite” lifespan (until the end of the age). When this process is complete, the Stage of Formation ends. The Stage of Abiding is subdivided into many eras, in which the lifespan of human’s changes. We are currently said to be in a degenerate age, when the lifespan is decreasing and is about 80 years.
The Stage of Destruction begins when no more sentient beings are reborn in the hell realms, and the hells begin to empty out (as various beings exhaust the karma that brought them there in the first place). Likewise, all higher realms of existence are emptied out in sequence.
Finally, the world system is destroyed by a great fire!
Far Eastern Flat Earth Cosmology
The ancient Chinese accepted the earth being a flat geocentric and that an umbrella-like covering surrounded it which was similar to the beliefs of the Greek, East Indian, Egyptians, Norse and Germanic as well as the aboriginal people of the Americas.
The Chinese astronomers believed that heaven takes its body from the yang, so it is round and in motion, and that the earth takes its body from the Yin, so it is flat and quiescent. The brilliant astronomers of China held this unchanging belief until the Jesuit missionaries came to China in the 17th century.
In Ancient Chinese, the early Jesuit scholars were the first Europeans to gain access to the Chinese ‘book of all knowledge’ from ancient times. This 4,320-volume collection told of the repercussions of mankind’s rebellion against the gods: “The Earth was shaken to its foundations. The sky sank lower towards the north. The sun, moon, and stars changed their motions. The Earth fell to pieces and the waters in its bosom rushed upwards with violence and overflowed the Earth.”
The legend of Nvwa Mending the Sky is one of the most representative myths about the world creation in ancient China. Legend has it that in remote antiquity, the four pillars supporting the sky suddenly broke and as a result, the sky had chasms and couldn’t fully cover the earth. The land on earth also spilt open and couldn’t sustain things on top of it. At that time, raging flames ripped through the earth, where torrential flood water, ferocious beasts and birds also preyed on people’s lives.
Seeing that human beings were suffering such disasters, Nvwa tried everything she could to mend the sky. She selected all types of five-colored stones, melted them into slurry over fire and filled the chasms with the slurry. Later, she cut off the feet of a big turtle to prop up the sky. Afterwards, she killed the black dragon that caused floods and other disasters and the ferocious beasts and birds harming people. At last, she burnt reeds into ashes and piled them up to block flood water. Thus, disasters were conquered and mankind was saved.
Native American Flat Earth Cosmology
The universe of the Maya were centered on a tiered pyramid, and rest upon a crocodillian cosmic sea. Each quarter of the earth was associated with color, and the center of the earth was a “fifth direction”. Four sacred beings supported the dome of heaven, illustrated as a two-headed dragon, which had a body as a sky band of celestial symbols. It is arched over the moon goddess, who is holding the rabbit discerned in the moon’s face, and a skeletal Venus, and the sun god. Pleides, is a star cluster and a rattlesnake tail. Creation of both sun and probably the planet Venus was explained with a legend of Hero twins who vied with the Lords of Death during a series of ball games. The victorious twins became these celestial bodies.
The king of the Inca believed he was the son of the sun, and the cosmos was centered on the Sun Temple at Cuzco, Peru. In one origin myth the Inca people came from three caves; in another myth they arose from Lake Titicaca. The straight red lines are ceques, symbolizing connections to sacred places. The major ceques formed borders of the four-quarted Inca world. The Milky Way blended into the underworld and brought dark, fertile mud to the sky upon its return, which formed patches that resemble animals, like the snake (at top) toad, tinamou bird, mother and baby llama, fox and a second tinamou. The sun is portrayed as a male god, and the moon as a female.
To the Cherokees, the Earth was a flat disc of water with a large island floating in the middle. The Earth hung by four cords — one each in the north, east, south, and west — from a sky arch made of stone. This was the Middle World, where the plants, animals, and humans lived. Above the sky arch was the Upper World. This was where the guiding and protective spirits of humans and animals lived. These spirits could move from the Upper World to the Middle World and back to help the humans keep balance and harmony on the Earth. Below the Earth was the Under World of bad spirits. Bad spirits brought disorder and disaster. They could rise to the Middle World through deep springs, lakes, and caves. When these spirits caused trouble, Cherokees called on the spirits from the Upper World to help resEverything in the Cherokee environment — from corn, tobacco and animals to fire, smoke, creeks and mountains — had an intelligent spirit and played a central role in Cherokee myths as well as daily practices. Native peoples did not view themselves as separate from their environment — they were a part of it.
In the Aztec creation story, as the gods continued to create, they had a problem – their creations would fall into the water and be eaten by the dreadful Cipactli. So it was time for war – the four gods attacked the sea monster, pulling her in four directions. She fought back, biting Tezcatlipoca and tearing off his foot. But at last Cipactli was destroyed. From this enormous creature the universe was created. All the 13 heavens stretch into her head. The earth was created in the middle, and her tail reaches down to the underworld (Mictlán) (nine underworlds, to be exact). You could say that in the Aztec creation story the world is on the back of this sea monster, floating in the water of space (reminiscent of the Iroquois belief that the world rests on the back of a turtle).
