I believe that many of my friends have heard of many fairy legends, and many modern film and television works and novels are based on myths. In the eyes of many people, these ancient myths were just made up by the ancients, and they were characters and deeds imagined by human ancestors in ancient times.
So is it really that simple? If we carefully study the myths and legends that have been handed down around the world, you will find that myths and legends are everywhere in the human world and have formed several major schools. There are obvious differences between the myths and legends of the Eastern world and the Eastern world. In the Eastern world, myths and legends are a very large system structure, with Pangu opening the sky, saints, heaven, hell, etc.
How this series of systems were imagined by ancient humans is really incredible. Although the Western myths and legends are not as large as the Eastern ones, they have formed a very complete set of fairy systems. Whether it is the Eastern mythological system or the Western mythological system, their perfection and rules even surpass the entire civilized system of human society.
In other words, the series of people and things in myths and legends are equivalent to an unknown civilized world. And can such a perfect civilization system be imaginable by ancient humans? We are now in the age of science and technology, with a huge population of 7 billion, among which there are many learned literati. Then, with the current knowledge of human civilization, can a mythological system as perfect as that of the ancient times be reconstructed? The answer is no.
Although our current human civilization can also imagine and invent some fantasy things, we cannot imagine a perfect civilization system comparable to ancient myths. It is just seeing the extraordinaryness of ancient myths and legends that modern scientists begin to attach importance to myths and legends around the world, hoping to discover something unusual from them.
Some scientists have speculated that the gods in ancient myths may be aliens. Does this possibility exist? After the hypothesis that immortals may be aliens was put forward, it has been recognized by more and more people, many of whom are scientists. Why do many scientists agree with this view? The main thing is that we have discovered many unusual things through continuous exploration of the earth.
We all know that human ancestors in ancient times were primitive societies. There was no such things as science and technology. Therefore, after ancient humans saw something incomprehensible, they wanted to record it and pass it on to future generations. The only way was through carving. Carve some important things on the stone or on the stone wall.
These stone walls can be preserved for a very long time. Ancient humans have preserved some of their sights into rock paintings for generations. Modern scientists have discovered some peculiar petroglyphs all over the world. These petroglyphs are carved with portraits of people, some of which are the appearance of human ancestors, and some are some things in the daily life of human ancestors.
In addition to these rocks that we can clearly see are portraits of human ancestors, there are also some rock paintings carved with characters that are obviously different from humans. These different petroglyphs are very similar to the aliens we now imagine. Some people might say that they are just rock paintings carved by ancient humans through imagination. If you think so, you are quite wrong.
Imagine if a modern painter painted portraits, would he paint an imaginary character completely different from human beings? The answer is no. The character painted by a modern painter, even if it is a person he imagined, his appearance must be very similar to that of a human being, and it will not completely divorce from the appearance of a human being.
The same was true for humans in ancient times, and the imagination of people in ancient times is estimated to be completely incomparable with modern humans. Therefore, the ancient humans would only carve the things they had seen on the stone walls, but would not carve the non-existent things on it. For ancient humans, it is a very sacred thing to engrave or portray on the stone wall. They will not just engrave non-existent, imagined things on it.
Therefore, the strange figures on these ancient murals are likely to be creatures that ancient humans have seen. They are obviously not the same species as humans, so we can boldly guess that they may be aliens who came to Earth in ancient times.
We can imagine such a scenario: In ancient times, an alien civilization discovered the existence of the solar system and the earth, and then sent its own fleet to the earth. At that time, mankind had just walked out of the age of ignorance, and suddenly a group of aliens descended from the sky, and the ignorant and ignorant ancestors witnessed this strange scene.
Fortunately, this alien civilization that came to the earth did not have any malicious intentions. They might just come to the earth to conduct some investigations and research. And the ancient humans who had just emerged from their ignorance at that time undoubtedly became the key research target of alien civilization. When the ancient humans saw that these were completely different from theirs, and were able to fly, be invisible, and call the wind and rain, they would naturally regard these aliens as gods.
The aliens obviously also took advantage of the features that human ancestors knew nothing about, pretending to be omnipotent gods, so that aliens could better study ancient humans and be able to move more freely on the earth. It will not be hated and attacked by humans. In order to make their celestial identity more convincing, aliens have demonstrated some technological capabilities, such as free flight, stealth, and calling for rain.
In fact, these abilities that were incredible in the eyes of ancient humans can all be realized with technology. For example, invisibility, we all know that we can see an object because the light reflected by the object enters our sight. If we distort the space so that the light of the object does not enter the eyes, the target object will naturally be invisible to us.
Although we cannot distort space yet, Einstein’s theory of relativity has already told us the answer. For another example, flying is even simpler. In myths and legends, the fairy will fly in the clouds and fog, and this is also the method of the fairy flying. In fact, from the perspective of modern technology, it was a single-person aircraft, but ancient humans could not understand it, and regarded it as a kind of celestial ability.
As for calling the wind and calling the rain, this is also a meteorological weapon. We can also achieve partial artificial rainfall. For an alien civilization that can come to the earth, the technology to control the weather is of course nothing. At the same time, alien civilization may also tell human ancestors some systems or rules of its civilization in order to deify itself more.
These civilization systems or rules may be the mythological systems of the ancient times. In this way, alien civilizations disguised themselves as supernatural gods, and ancient humans also worshiped these gods as beliefs, and carved some of their portraits on the stone walls. Last, it was enshrined from generation to generation.
Someone may ask: If the immortals in ancient times were some aliens who came to the earth, then why are the myths and legends of different parts of the world so different? In fact, this is not difficult to understand. Human civilization is divided into many countries, many tribes, and we also have many companies of various types, and so on. Naturally, this is also possible within alien civilization.
Although the alien civilizations that came to Earth at that time were the same civilization, they may not belong to the same camp, that is, they may belong to different groups within the alien civilization. And these groups may come outside the earth to carry out the division of influence, that is, the Eastern world is explored by one group, and the Western world is explored by another group.
There may be other groups distributed to other places on the earth at that time, and these different groups may have different images of their mythology in different ancient human tribes. For example, the boss of the oriental gods is called the Jade Emperor, while the Western gods The boss is called Zeus.
Of course, these are just our guesses. Whether the ancient myths and legends were fabricated by the ancients or existed in reality, there is no definite answer yet. To unravel these mysteries, we can only continue to explore and discover more peculiar things on the earth. As long as we continue to work hard, time will eventually give us the answer.
