LIFTING THE SKY.. Just a Legend?
As a believer in cyclical time I found the following Native Legend to perhaps be more important than I had considered when I first read it years ago…
First let us read the legend and then I will share with you some information that I found which shows that perhaps it is not JUST a legend but rather a simplistic account of early high technology LONG AGO that only now may be being attempted yet again.
Pushing Up The Sky
Creator and Changer first made the East then he worked slowly westward. He gave languages to the different people he made. He had many languages left so he scattered them around the Puget Sound and to the north. These people couldn’t talk to each other, but they knew they were unhappy at the way the world the was created. The sky was so low that the tall people would bump their heads against it.
The tribal elders got together and decided to lift the sky and make it higher. Some questioned, "How can we all push when we live in different parts of the world and speak different languages?" One suggested using some kind of signal. They agreed on shouting "Ya-hoh", which means "lift together!" in all of the languages. The day for sky-lifting came. They raised their poles to the sky and they shouted "Ya-hoh! Ya-hoh!" Until the sky reached its current place as it is now.
Now, three hunters and a dog had been chasing four elk during all of this and were oblivious to the sky-lifting plan. They came to a place where the earth nearly met the sky. The elk jumped into the Sky World with the hunters following. When the sky lifted they were too. In the Sky World they were changed to stars. The three hunters from the handle of the Big Dipper, where the middle hunter has his dog with him. The four elk make up the bowl of the Big Dipper.
People still shout "Ya-hoh!" when they work together. "Hoh!" is said when all of the strength is used. Some people say "Heave-Hoh!"
Now, how could this apply today..
Well lets just look at the HAARP program and see how it may be a replay of an ancient legend:
Put simply, the apparatus for HAARP is a reversal of a radio telescope; antenna send out signals instead of receiving. HAARP is the test run for a super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything -- living and dead.
The legend of the native Americans does not make clear what happened once the sky was raised but one thing is clear.. Native Americans believe that fooling around with nature is not wise and is why after the loss of the Third World they choose to live within the natural balance rather than seek technical advancement.
I am not opposed to science and experimentation within limits of good common sense and I am thankful for many of our technical achievements (obviously since I am using one now. The Computer… to even be able to share this ) BUT, I feel that there are areas we should question and use more than simple theoretical science before we attempt.
Curiosity is wonderful and science can be most fascinating and helpful but at what point might one wrong calculation or one faulty experiment potentially lead to another Atlantian apocalypse? ??
