Die längste Geschichte der Welt

October 28th, 2006

>>Scientific estimates of the age of the earth and the universe show a consistent tendency to increase at an increasing rate as time goes on. This relation has been surprisingly consistent during the last three centuries. The implications of this are, of course, profound, for they impact on both the future and the past history of time itself.<<

    stimmt übrigens nicht, wenn man die hindus miteinbezieht, im hinduismus ist das universum viel älter. etwas eurozentrisch das ganze – lässt man sie nicht mit den berechnungen des mönches Usher beginnen, der seine theorie an hand von studium der bibel-genealogie aufstellte, sieht die grafik dann gleich weniger eindeutig und hübsch aus:

    The later puranic view asserts that the universe is created, destroyed, and re-created in an eternally repetitive series of cycles. In Hindu cosmology, a universe endures for about 4,320,000,000 years (one day of Brahma, the creator or kalpa) and is then destroyed by fire or water elements. At this point, Brahma rests for one night, just as long as the day. This process, named pralaya (Cataclysm), repeats for 100 Brahma years (311 trillion human years) that represents Brahma’s lifespan. It must be noted that Brahma is the creator but not necessarily regarded as God in Hinduism. He is mostly regarded as a creation of God / Brahman.

    We are currently believed to be in the 51st year of the present Brahma and so about 155 trillion years have elapsed since He was born as Brahma. After Brahma’s “death”, it is necessary that another 100 Brahma years pass until he is reborn and the whole creation begins anew. This process is repeated again and again, forever.

    Brahma’s life is divided in one thousand cycles (Maha Yuga, or the Great Year). Maha Yuga, during which life, including the human race appears and then disappears, has 71 divisions, each made of 14 Manvantara (1000) years. Each Maha Yuga lasts for 4,320,000 years. Manvantara is Manu’s cycle, the one who gives birth and governs the human race

    Aber trotzdem danke für die Mühe. Ich hätte ja auch Randgruppen-Humor (in diesem Fall: Humor für Chronologiekritiker) taggen können. Mach ich mal gleich noch.
