The concepts of time and reincarnation seem at first to have very little to do with UFOs and Aliens. But readers will find as I delve deeper into these concepts, they constitute important building blocks in the explanation of these mysteries.
Taking time first, it is viewed very differently in the East as compared to the West. The West has always viewed time as linear, whereas in Hinduism and Buddhism it is considered cyclical. The religions that emanated from the Middle East, rely heavily on their respective holy texts to peer into the unknown, whereas these religions, though they have holy texts of their own, have always relied on personal inquiry - aided by tools like meditation, to fathom the unknown. The forest seers of Hinduism, who lived over five thousand years ago, earned their name by retiring to the forests to contemplate on concepts like time and the purpose of life. As time went by, the findings of these seers were collated to give a semblance of order to the universe. The religions of the East maintain that the power of intuition, which is developed through long and deep meditation, provides the ultimate answers to all of the conundrums that we see around us. It is from these findings that the ancients from the East maintain that time is never linear, but always cyclic. We will now touch lightly on what these sages found about time.
Very briefly, these sages discovered that time can be divided into ages or yugas. A complete cycle consists of 24,000 earth years (which is also one complete zodiac cycle), and is made up of four descending ages and four ascending ages. The time distribution for these ages however, are not equal as will be shown below. The four ages (yugas) are the Satya yuga, Treta yuga, Dwapara yuga and the Kali yuga. The Satya yuga is where mankind will be the most highly developed, both spiritually and materially. This age is commonly termed as the Golden age. Readers will realize, that since there is a descending and ascending period consisting of these four ages, both the Satya and Kali yugas in the descending phase will be back to back to a corresponding like yuga of the ascending phase.
Following the Satya yuga is the Treta yuga, or the silver age. Here, the knowledge and power of mankind will be less than that of Satya yuga, but formidable nonetheless. In the descending phase, one can term the Treta yuga as a decline from the Satya yuga, and in the ascending phase, the Treta yuga can be termed as moving from a lower age (Treta) to a higher age (Satya).
The Treta yuga is then followed by the Dwapara (bronze) and Kali (iron) ages. In a complete cycle of 24,000 years, the Satya ages ( ascending and descending ) make up 9,600 years, the Kali yugas (ascending and descending) make up 2,400 years while Treta and Dwapara ages make up respectively 3,600 years and 2,400 years in each of the descending and ascending phases.
One school of thought in India has determined that mankind had moved into a better time around A.D. 499 - corresponding to the Pisces/ Virgo sector of the zodiac
(although this is hotly contested by some other schools which maintain that we are still in the dark ages), where mankind will be receptive to spiritual ideas, and will then move into another higher level of understanding around A.D. 2499 - corresponding to Aquarius/Leo sector of the zodiac.
The above pattern of ages is unique to planet earth, which is often termed as a school where souls are trained for higher realms. It tends to reason then, that there will be other planets which are more or less developed than earth, each having its unique time cycles, in the myriad of planets that can support some form of life in the universe. It would appear that all of the zillions of planets that make up the universe are inextricably linked to one another, and are all within the realm of the Divine or the Super Soul.
