Hi Native,

I like your website. Have you noticed my Myth Now Blog on this JCF website?

It is called "Quanta", and it offers another view of the cosmos as it relates to myth.

Native,

I was reading this essay

http://www.metanexus.net/essay/future-s ... st-visions

and thought of your post. Especially in the section titled, Life-principle from the stars: akash ganga, where the author speaks of the milky way as a river of creation.

In fact, the idea of Big History seems similar to your web page.

@ Roncooper,

Thanks for your reply and linking.
Life-principle from the stars: akash ganga:

In Hindu lore there is an interesting account of how the sacred river Ganga which has its origins in the Himalayan range, actually arose. In the Ramayana (I.25) the sage Vishvamitra explains that the river "rose from the skies and finally came down to earth in the form of a terrestrial stream that has the power to rid us of worldly sins."

In this vision, the life-giving river's pristine presence in the universe may still be seen as the Milky which is known as Akash Ganga or the Celestial Ganga in the Hindu world.
I agree with you that this deals with the Milky Way River, but I don¨t agree with "a terrestrial stream that has the power to rid us of worldly sins.". The Milky Way River is of course neutral in any sense and not judgmental.

I don´t quite agree with the technological points of views on the site but in general I agree with the overall statements. Ancient cultures shows more cosmological knowledge than modern science, mostly because of the cyclic world view in Myths of Creation and also because their physical and spiritual knowledge computes in a very logical and intuitive way.

- I have this paper: "The Milky Way Mythology and the Stories of Creation":
