Andrew Tomas: We Are Not The First



On Science In Amnesia

"Civilization is older than we suppose." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"Man is civilized only when he remembers his yesterday...." -- -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"During the past three or four hundred years science has been rediscovered rather than discovered." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"Our science has only rediscovered and perfected old ideas." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"If it were not for the burning of libraries in antiquity, history would not have had so many missing pages." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

On Ancient Technology

"... the technical skills of the men of antiquity and prehistory have been greatly underestimated." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"This book [We Are Not the First] is about penicillin before Fleming, about airplanes before the Wright Brothers, about the moons of Jupiter before Galileo, about voyages to the moon before Apollo probes, about the atomic theory centuries before Rutherford, about electric batteries before Volta, about computers before Wiener, about science before this Science Age." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"Oddly enough, the peoples further back in time had greater scientific knowledge than the nations of later historical periods." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"... the presence of certain scientific knowledge in ancient times cannot be easily accounted for unless it is assumed that the skills and knowledge of the ancients have been drastically underestimated." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"The Roman emperor Diocletian issued an edict in Egypt around A.D. 300, demanding that all books on 'the art of making gold and silver' be burned. The decree shows that the Roman government was certain that such an art existed. It would surely have been unnecessary to issue decrees banning this craft unless it were known to have been practiced." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"All these prohibitions on alchemy are very bewildering. A 'No smoking' sign in a train is put up because people have cigarettes in their pockets. What was the reason for these 'No goldmaking' orders? If there were no cases of illegal transmutation, it surely would not have been worthwhile wasting expensive parchment on long, sternly worded decrees." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

On Electromagnetic Gravity and the Myth of Gravitation

"...gravitational force is quadrillions of times weaker than electricity or magnetism." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"Gravitational energy is 10^36 times weaker than electricity...." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"Francois Lenormont writes in his Chaldean Magic that by means of sounds the priests of ancient Babylon were able to raise into the air heavy rocks which a thousand men could not have lifted." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"Babylonian tablets affirm that sound could lift stones. The Bible speaks of Jericho and what sound waves did to it's walls. Coptic writings relate the process by which blocks for the pyramids were elevated by the sound of chanting. However, at the present state of our knowledge we can establish no connection between sound and weightlessness." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"The Catholic Church lists some two hundred saints who were alleged to have conquered the force of gravity. Any scientist who rejects the testimony just because it comes from a religious source should be consistent and likewise discard all ecclesiastical records on the same ground. This would cover records of all possible kinds including, naturally, the condemnation of Giordano Bruno and the case against Galileo." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

"For thousands of years men have experienced the reverses of gravity force. Perhaps the ancients could give us some clue as to how to acquire antigravitation for use in aeronautics and aviation." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

On Extraterrestrials

"Saucers have been known in the East for thousands of years. Their present appearance in mass has been foretold long, long ago. They are only an effect, not the cause, and the cause is the great struggle between the Forces of Good, of Culture, of Enlightenment - and of Evil, of Hate, and Darkness." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1956

"Two theories can explain the artifacts described in this chapter -- either there was some kind of technological civilization in a bygone past, or the earth has been visited by beings from other stellar worlds." -- Andrew Tomas, author, 1971

Well....I find it difficult to argue with that logic. Although....I find it hard to understand that if the Law of Universal Gravitation is only a "myth," then why do some of the most prominent Theoretical Physicists like Dr. Michio Kaku believe such an idea? Is the term "gravity," used as an explanation for electromagnetism?

Gravity is described as the bending of space-time and the large astrological bodies fall into that bend, then they orbit the other body much like a coin in a funnel.

I wonder if organisms can create any sort of bend in space-time as the more mass and object has, the greater it's distortion of space-time, or "gravity." Perhaps, they may not make as large a bend as to pull anything towards itself. I'm no physicist, but it seems to me maybe we all DO create that bend but we all share that same size distortion. Is that a possibility?

Young Mr. Lewis,

"Well....I find it difficult to argue with that logic."

Likewise.

"Although....I find it hard to understand that if the Law of Universal Gravitation is only a "myth," then why do some of the most prominent Theoretical Physicists like Dr. Michio Kaku believe such an idea?"

For the same reason that Ptolemy and Cleanthes, the most prominent physicists of their time, believed in geocentrism.

"Is the term 'gravity,' used as an explanation for electromagnetism?"

I believe electromagnetism is the explanation for gravity. See Kepler etc.

"Gravity is described as the bending of space-time"

As Wal Thornhill said, Einstein's hyopthesis is the craziest explanation imaginable. Space and time are not one object. They are not even two objects. Space and time are the a priori forms of our intuition (see Aristotle, Leibniz, and Kant). The only reason why it's possible to curve space and time is because they are imaginary. It is impossible to hold space or time in your hand and it is doubly impossible to hold spacetime in your hand. They are not material objects, they are imaginary concepts. If spacetime has a shape then what color is it?

"and the large astrological bodies fall into that bend, then they orbit the other body much like a coin in a funnel."

True. In astrology space and time can bend all they want.

"I wonder if organisms can create any sort of bend in space-time as the more mass and object has, the greater it's distortion of space-time, or "gravity." Perhaps, they may not make as large a bend as to pull anything towards itself. I'm no physicist, but it seems to me maybe we all DO create that bend but we all share that same size distortion. Is that a possibility?"

I reject relativity so if you ask me the answer is no.

It certainly is interesting that people said these things.

Note: I highly doubt that the pyramids could have been levitated by accoustical energy given the amount of decibles required for such a thing.

It's important for those in power, to retain knowledge, but prevent others from recognizing it when they see it.

The egyptians didn't want their enemies obtaining knowledge which could be used against them. So they wrote in Hieroglyphics... which, like our current Alphabet, is based upon 13 Constellations in which the sun travels, and 13 constellations in which the river runs.

Greeks also, but I believe they had 12x12, who along with the people of Spain and Judea, are of the same race. Everyone has their way of 'encrypting' their knowledge, and even if the Egyptian cities burned, most of it was carved into stone... preserving it for future generations...

I have been reading and looking for Andrew Tomas: We Are Not The First and is amazing and disturbing how many blogs related to viagra online are in the web. But anyways, thanks for sharing your inputs, they are really interesting.
Have a nice day
