Book title: Ancient History (of Bharat, Dravida, Malaya, etc.) and Time


NB: the chapters of this book will be posted here, as they get written, until the book is published.


The following are Chapter 1 (Time and the Different Worlds) and Chapter 2 (Floods, Ice Ages, etc.) of my next book which is titled “Ancient History (of Bharat, Dravida, Malaya, etc.) and Time”. Please let me know if there are any grammatical mistakes or something which needs to be corrected in this chapter so that it can be perfected before the book can be published.


Chapter 1: Time and the Different Worlds.

Before giving explanations based on research and the memories that had emerged, I will be explaining Time as it is taught to the BKs (members of the Brahma Kumaris) because one will find it easier to understand what I am saying if one knows this. The BKs do not deal with Time Dilation (how Time can flow at different rates) when they explain about the Cycle (Cycle of Time) that illustrates what happens to us as Time flows. However, as I explain about the Cycle, I will also be explaining about Time Dilation because Time flows at different rates in the different dimensions. Due to Time Dilation, our current ordinary world was getting creating in a lower dimension ‘over billions of years’ while Mankind dropped into the current ordinary world during just one birth. I will explain this further after I have briefly explained the Cycle and some murli extracts on the Cycle.

In His murlis, which consist of His teachings, God (our Father/Baba) has said the following:

1.  “There are eight births in the golden age, 12 births in the silver age, 21 births in the copper age and 42 births in the iron age. This Godly birth in which you are adopted is the most elevated birth of all. This is the most fortunate birth of only you Brahmins.”

(Sakar Murli 10-11-18)

2. “The Father sits here and explains: At first, you souls were in the incorporeal world. Then you souls went into the deity religion and then the warrior religion. You were satopradhan for 8 births. Then, for 12 births, you had the sato stage. Then, for 21 births, you were in the copper age and then you took 42 births in the iron age. You became shudras and you have again come into the Brahmin clan. You will then go into the deity clan. You are now in the lap of God. The Father explains to you very clearly. By knowing the 84 births, you come to know everything.”

(Sakar Murli 24-2-2018)

3. “Those who are to come to heaven will be satopradhan. Then, later on, they will go through the stages of sato, rajo and tamo.”

(Sakar murli 12-3-20)

4. “Everything definitely has to change from new to old as it goes through the stages of sato, rajo and tamo. Human beings too are like this. A baby is first satopradhan, then he becomes an adult and then elderly, that is, he goes through the stages of rajo and tamo. When someone’s body is old, that soul leaves it and enters another body as a baby again.”

(Sakar murli 17-4-20)

5. “The lifespan of the people of Bharat is at first 150 years, then 125 years and it is now hardly 40 to 50 years.”

(Sakar Murli 7-9-2018)

6. “There, everyone’s lifespan is on average 125 to 150 years. It isn’t that from the copper age the lifespan suddenly becomes 35 years; no. At first it is 100 to 125 and then it becomes about 70 to 80 years. Now it has reached the stage where the average lifespan is 35 to 40 years.”

(Sakar Murli 2-11-2016)

In accordance with the knowledge of the Brahma Kumaris (BK knowledge):

1. we are the souls and not the bodies. The original home of the human souls and God (the Supreme Soul) is the Soul World (which is the incorporeal world). After the soul (a point of light) comes into the Corporeal World, from the Soul World, to take a birth in the Corporeal World, it keeps taking births until the end of the Cycle. The soul resides in the body and uses the body to live in the Corporeal World.

2. time flows in a cyclical manner, i.e. the Cycle keeps repeating.

Each Cycle consists of 5000 years which are apportioned into the five Ages/Yugas that are in the following order:

1. Golden Age/Satyuga,

2. Silver Age/Tetrayuga,

3. Copper Age/Dwapuryuga,

4. Iron Age/Kaliyuga, and

5. Confluence Age/Sangamyuga.

In the Golden Age, the souls are satopradhan, i.e. the souls are pure, divine and complete with all virtues and powers. The spiritual strength of the souls is 16 celestial degrees. In this powerful state, they (the souls) are naturally pure, divine and peaceful all the time. The bodies, which these divine souls use, are also pure, divine and perfect. The Golden Aged divine human beings are the deities of the deity religion.

At the beginning of the next Age (the Silver Age), the spiritual strength of the souls decreases to 14 celestial degrees. Therefore, in the Silver Age, the souls are:

1. in the lower sato stage.

2. two celestial degrees less spiritually powerful than the souls in the Golden Age.

The Silver Aged souls do not lose their divine state because the souls are still spiritually powerful enough to remain pure. These souls are ‘warriors’ because they are victorious in remaining in the pure, divine state even though they are in a spiritual state where the vices are about to emerge in their minds. Though they are in a weaker divine state, the vices can only emerge in their minds during their birth at the end of the Silver Age because they are still spiritually powerful before this final Silver Aged birth.

All the souls who live in the first half cycle (Golden and Silver Ages) are deity souls, i.e. they are souls who are capable of living as deities during the Golden and Silver Ages. By the end of the Silver Age, since the deity souls are capable of indulging in the vices, a vice emerges in the mind of the soul who has been longer in the Corporeal World than all others. This soul, who plays the role of Brahma Baba during the Confluence Age, also plays the role of the first Krishna who is born at the beginning of the Golden Age. When a vice emerges in his mind, at the end of the Silver Age:

1. the ‘Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages’ begins. I refer to this Confluence as the ‘Mid-Confluence’ since it is at the middle of the Cycle.

2. the Silver Aged world begins to transform into the ordinary world. I refer to the Silver Aged world as Devaloka.

3. a new ordinary world begins to get created in the lower ordinary universe.

The lower ordinary universe has to come into existence, when the vice emerges in the mind of the deity soul, because:

1. people, who indulge in the vices, cannot remain in Devaloka. They have to drop into a lower more appropriate dimension. Those who carry out actions based on the vices, which are in their mind, will be in even lower dimensions.

2. the people have to be provided with an ordinary universe to live in when they begin to indulge in the vices. We have to live in this ordinary universe during the second half cycle (Copper and Iron Ages) since we are capable of indulging in the vices. Therefore, the ordinary universe has to get created during the Mid-Confluence.

At the beginning of the Mid-Confluence, since some of the light of the soul transformed into the ordinary state, in order to get transformed into a vice, some of the energies of the Corporeal World also transformed into the ordinary state. It should be noted that the energies of the Corporeal World are dependent on the state of the soul. Thus, when our light begins to transform into the ordinary state, the energies of the Corporeal World also have to begin to transform into the ordinary state. The quantum energies transform into the ordinary state in a Big Bang kind of way.

Actually, the moment a vice emerged in the mind of the deity soul, we were no longer in the divine state and we were no longer living in the Silver Aged world. Nevertheless, since the souls were still spiritually powerful, the transformation of the Corporeal World (from the perfect to the imperfect state) took place slowly, during that last Silver Aged birth, for those who managed to remain pure by not indulging in the vices. Since the people did not want to lose their perfect world, they preferred to remain in the pure virtuous state. So it took some time for Devaloka to completely transform into the imperfect state. However, an ordinary universe was already getting created from the time a vice emerged in the mind of the deity soul.

Actually, there was just one earth with two different worlds (Devaloka and the ordinary world) provided in the same space though they were in two different dimensions. Time flowed slowly in Devaloka while it flowed quickly in the ordinary universe. Time dilation existed, in respect of both these worlds, because both worlds were in different kinds of dimensions; they were parallel universes. Therefore, current day scientists say that the initial creation of our present ordinary universe may have taken place around 13.7 to 14 billion years ago through the Big Bang and that the present ordinary earth solidified around 4.5 to 4.6 billion years ago. The ordinary world includes the ordinary universe and ordinary earth. The creation of the ordinary world:

1. involved the creation of another world that overlapped the same earth. It provided a different world on the surface of the earth.

2. was for the transformation of the Silver Aged world into the ordinary state. The creation of the ordinary world influenced the Silver Aged world to transform so as to become the ordinary world.

3. involves the cosmic energies providing the ordinary world for the second half cycle.

The creation of the ordinary world mostly involved changing what was experienced on the surface of the earth. However, it can be said that a new earth is being created because the ordinary earth is not provided by quantum energies which are in the divine state; the ordinary earth is provided by quantum energies which are in the ordinary state. Further, more than the surface of the earth can change since weak ordinary cosmic energies are providing the ordinary earth. Since both, the perfect divine earth and the ordinary earth, are provided in the same space, there are two types of cosmic energies providing the earth in the same space. What is provided by the divine cosmic energies is the divine earth and what is provided by the ordinary cosmic energies is the ordinary earth. Actually, the people and their earth are no longer in the divine state from the moment a vice emerges in the mind of a deity soul. However, for convenience, I am still using the word divine because:

1. there were souls who have not entertained a vice in the mind,

2. the souls were still spiritually powerful, and

3. the souls have not taken their next birth in the Copper Age.

In my book “Holographic Universe: An Introduction”, I have explained that everything in the Corporeal World is provided through the Holographic Universe. This Holographic Universe overlaps the Corporeal World.

In my book “Grow Rich while Walking into the Golden Aged World (with Meditation Commentaries)”, I have explained that the Holographic Universe consists of the Higher Universe and the Lower Universe.

Our world is provided in the Higher Universe during the first half cycle. Therefore, Devaloka was in the Higher Universe. Then, our world is provided in the Lower Universe during the second half cycle. Hence, our current universe (lower ordinary universe) is in the Lower Universe. The present earth, which I refer to as the ‘ordinary earth’, is within the Lower Universe. The World Drama of the second half cycle takes place on the ordinary earth.

The Higher Universe and Lower Universe are parallel universes within the Corporeal World. Thus, during the Mid-Confluence, Devaloka and the ordinary world were in parallel universes within the Corporeal World. From Devaloka, it looked like the ordinary world was way down below (in a different lower universe) because denser energies provided the ordinary world in a lower parallel universe. The powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods could subtly see it this way because they were spiritually powerful. For this and other reasons, the Lower Universe, ordinary earth and ordinary world have been referred to as the underworld or Patala, in the Hindu scriptures. Despite how it subtly looked, the ordinary earth actually overlapped the earth which the people in Devaloka were walking on.

Normally, there can only be one world in existence to provide the world stage for Mankind. However, during the Mid-Confluence, more than one world was provided in the Corporeal World because:

1. the deity souls were still spiritually powerful. Those who continued to remain in the pure state had to remain in a higher world.

2. the people were now capable of indulging in the vices. Those who indulge in the vices have to live in a lower denser world.

The embodied souls, who indulged in the vices, could not remain in the higher world because the cosmic energies around them were influenced to become denser energies due to being exposed to the impure vibrations from the vices. Since the cosmic energies around them were denser, they were in a lower denser world. It was like these people had dropped into a lower world though they never experienced the sensation of dropping. Since the Mid-Confluence Aged souls were still spiritually powerful:

1. they knew that people were capable of dropping; so they did not indulge in the vices.

2. the cosmic energies of the Corporeal World served them well. For this reason also, they knew that the new ordinary world was getting created in the Lower Universe. Originally, the people were just entertained by the new creation that was taking place in the Lower Universe.

The two worlds, in the two different universes, were very different from each other because:

1. Time flowed very quickly in the Lower Universe while Time flowed very slowly in the Higher Universe.

2. the world that was provided in the Higher Universe was for spiritually powerful pure souls. Since they were pure and spiritually powerful, the energies of the Corporeal World (around them) were in their pure powerful state. As a result, they provided a better world for the people.

3. the world that was provided in the Lower Universe was for the spiritually weaker souls and for the souls who were indulging in the vices. Since these souls were in the weaker ordinary or impure state, the energies in the Corporeal World (around them) were also in a weaker ordinary or impure state; so they do not provide a very good world for the people. Since all human souls were not living in the ordinary world until around the end of the Mid-Confluence, the energies that provided the ordinary world were originally very far away from the pure powerful human souls. Hence, these energies were not properly sustained by the pure vibrations from the human souls for the creation process. Thus, the ordinary world was in a very bad chaotic state until human beings began to live there.

During the second half cycle, we are supposed to live in the lower ordinary world since we are capable of indulging in the vices. Therefore, we are supposed to measure time as it flows on the ordinary earth.  Despite this, God (our Father/Baba) only gives the duration of 5000 years for the Cycle of Time because we only have to remember what happens to us during our lives in the Cycle so as to have self-realisation through spinning the Cycle/Chakra/discus. When we have self-realisation, we are aware that we are the souls who keep taking births during each Cycle. Through concentrating on the births which we take during each Cycle, we can easily experience ourselves as the souls because:

1. it is we (the souls) who take those births.

2. we are contemplating on the knowledge which God has given us. So we are remembering Him and, as a consequence, we get His assistance to attain the soul conscious stage.

For the above reasons, Baba has given us information on all the lives which we live during each Cycle of Time. Though time flows at different rates in the different dimensions, what is important is the total number of years which we live during each of our lives in a Cycle. If we calculate the number of years we live in the Golden Age, Silver Age, Copper Age and Iron Age, we would get a total of 5000 years.

As per the knowledge relating to the BK Cycle, we take 8 births in the Golden Age and each of these lives is lived for about 150 years. We live in the Golden Age for 1250 years.

During the Silver Age, we take 12 births. Each of these lives is lived roughly for about 125 years. The Silver Age lasts for 1250 years. Thus, there is a total of 2500 years in the first half cycle and we were deities during the Golden and Silver Ages.

After the Silver Age, there is the Copper Age where souls are no longer in the perfect, divine state. The souls are in their rajo (rajopradhan) state during the Copper Age and they take 21 births here. During the Mid-Confluence and early part of the Copper Age, people live for around 100 to 125 years. Then, their lifespan decreases and, by the end of the Copper Age, they live for about 70 to 80 years due to having a weaker body, etc. The Copper Age lasts for 1250 years.

After the Copper Age, there is the Iron Age where we take 42 births. We generally live each of these lives for a duration of about 35 to 60 years. At the beginning of Iron Age, we live longer; then, slowly our lifespan decreases. Sometimes, we live even longer because:

1. we can die earlier, in some births, due to diseases, accidents and other unforeseen circumstances. Sometimes, we die soon after being born or when we are very young.

2. we can roam around as a ghost before taking another birth.

3. we have taken good care of our bodies.

4. souls who have just come down from the Soul World enjoy their satopradhan, sato and rajo lives before living their tamo (Iron Aged) lives. They can live longer during their satopradhan, sato and rajo lives.

5. there is a need to settle, through a decaying body, for the wrongs which we have done.

During the Iron Age, the body’s decaying process (deteriorating or aging process) can start when we are in our 30s unless we have taken good care of the body. During the decaying process, the body will not function as well as it was when we were young. During the Copper and Iron Ages, we can continue living in the body, even though it has begun decaying, because we can suffer through the body while settling bad karmic accounts. During the first half cycle, we will always leave the body before the body begins to decay because we cannot suffer. In the Golden Age, the decaying process only begins after we have reached 150 years. So human beings only live up to about 150 years. In the Silver Age, the decaying process only starts when we are 125 years old. Hence, souls leave the body, to take another birth, before that. It is my view that the lifespan which God provides for the four Ages of the Cycle is based on the decaying process of the body.

Around the end of Kaliyug, God descends into the Corporeal World, from the Soul World, so as to establish the Confluence Age that overlaps the ending phase of Kaliyuga and the beginning phase of the Golden Age. We take one spiritual birth during the Confluence Age. During this birth, we help God with the transformation of the Kaliyug world into the Golden Aged world.

Since souls are in the tamo or tamopradhan state, while living in the Kaliyug world, there is hell on earth. Though some souls can be in a virtuous state, in the Kaliyug world, most of them can experience immense anger, jealousy, etc when provoked. A ‘soul who is in the pure divine state’ will not be able to tolerate the impure tamopradhan vibrations which are emitted from these people, i.e. the deity souls (who live in the first half cycle) will not be able to tolerate such impure vibrations. The divine soul would feel like it is being tortured if it is touched by the impure vibration, i.e. it is painful when a pure soul is touched by impure vibrations. I (BK Pari) have personally experienced this and so I know this. Since the pure Golden Aged deity souls have nothing to settle, such impure vibrations should not touch them. Generalised statements and symbolic words have been used, in the murlis, to explain this situation. For example, in the murlis, the people living in the Kaliyug world have been referred to as shudras because most of the souls are in the most impure tamopradhan spiritual state which cannot be tolerated by pure, divine souls.

During the Mid-Confluence, the pure people were in one dimension and the impure people (people who were indulging in the vices) were brought into another dimension because the impure vibrations from the impure people should not touch the pure people who have not done any wrong, as yet, for which they have to suffer. The people, who have continued to remain pure, are protected through what happens in the World Drama.

Since the Confluence Aged souls are slowly transforming into the divine state, we are protected from the impure vibrations:

1. by God’s Light. We will have the best Godly protection when we are close to God through our yoga with Him.

2. through residing in another world (the Angelic World) with God, though our physical body is in the Corporeal World. So long as we are contemplating on the knowledge given by God, we (the souls) are residing in the Angelic World with God, even though we are still in the physical body, doing things in the Corporeal World through using the physical body.

The aim of each Confluence Aged soul is to constantly remain close to God through making spiritual efforts to remain in yoga with God. We are Brahmins, during the Confluence Age, since we are close to God. When the 900,000 most powerful Confluence Aged souls are ready for world transformation, through being close to God:

1. our world transforms into the Golden Aged world, and

2. God takes all souls back to the Soul World.

Then, from the Soul World, we begin to come into the Golden Aged world, one by one. Thereafter, we continue to take births as deities in the Golden and Silver Ages. The deity souls, who take births from the beginning of the Golden Age, can take a maximum of 84 births during a Cycle of 5000 years. The BK Cycle is based on the calculation of how many years we live during these 84 births, in the Corporeal World, before we go back to the Soul World again, at the end of the Cycle. The BK Cycle only gives importance to the flow of time in the world which we live in because:

1. the calculation of time should be based on the flow of time in the world that we are living in.

2. giving importance to the ‘Cycle of 5000 years’ helps us to understand the Truth.

The world exists for Mankind to live their lives on earth. It is the flow of time in this world that is significant. It does not matter that time flows at different rates in the other dimensions. During the Mid-Confluence, occasionally, one or more people may have dropped into the lower worlds and lived there, i.e. they may have lived in a world where time flowed more quickly. Further, genetically modified animals (which were created by the scientists who lived in the higher worlds) were living on the ordinary earth before Mankind dropped to live on the ordinary earth. However, all these are not significant when we calculate time for the Cycle of Time because time should be calculated based on where most of the human beings were living, and most of the people were living in the higher worlds until the beginning of the Copper Age. Further, the Silver Aged people were supposed to be living in Devaloka until the end of the Silver Age. What happens during the Mid-Confluence is not significant because after the Silver Age, there is the Copper Age. So Time should be calculated as it flowed in Devaloka, and then, it should be calculated as it flowed from the beginning of the Copper Age.

If the Mid-Confluence Aged souls were not spiritually powerful, they would not have been aware that the ordinary world has already got created in the Lower Universe. In such a scenario, as the spiritual state (of the soul) changed and got weaker, they would have just seen their world changing. Thus, after having lived 2500 years in the first half cycle, they would have just lived another 2500 years in the ordinary world. They would not have known that during the Golden and Silver Ages, people lived in the Higher Universe and that the people were dropping into the Lower Universe during the Mid-Confluence. They would not have known that time flowed at different rates in the different dimension. Maybe, the weaker Mid-Confluence Aged souls (who lived far away from the powerful deity souls) were in such a scenario.

From the beginning of the Copper Age until the end of Kaliyug, all souls will turn to the evidences that exist so as to know, understand and calculate time. They will not understand anything in a spiritual way, like how the powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods were able to. Scientists will calculate time as it existed in the ordinary world because the higher worlds have already merged into the ordinary world and all evidences would reflect time as it was on the ordinary earth. From the evidences, researchers came to the conclusion that the ordinary earth got created billions of years ago and that (except for a few odd evidences here and there) human beings had only begun living in the ordinary world from the recent past. It looks like billions of years had passed by in the ordinary world before Mankind suddenly began to exist on earth. So the issue arises: how and from where did human beings come? A lot of theories have been put forward, from the time of the Copper Age. Despite what has been said in the various cultures around the world and by scientists, no one can give a proper explanation on how Mankind suddenly began to exist on the ordinary earth. Based on memories that had emerged:

1. I got to know of how, at the end of the Silver Age, a new ordinary earth began to get created in the Lower Universe.

2. I know that Mankind had dropped, from the higher world, to merge into the ordinary world.

I know all the above because I remembered what had happened during my life which was lived during the Mid-Confluence. Since my memories emerged, I am able to give an explanation on why evidences reflect that billions of years had passed by on the ordinary earth before human beings began to live on the ordinary earth.

The ordinary earth actually overlapped the perfect earth of the first half cycle. The ordinary earth was created to replace the perfect earth. Both these earths were actually ‘one earth’ because they were both provided in the same space; however, since they were in different dimensions, it looked like there were two earths in two different dimensions. The evidences, which were used by scientists to provide a theory on the creation of our earth, were just reflecting what was happening during the Mid-Confluence, when the new ordinary world was getting creating for the second half cycle.

The quantum energies do not have a soul; they just have a light counterpart and I refer to this light as Quantum Energies’ Light (QE Light). The QE Light and quantum energies provide a world for us based on our spiritual state because they transform as the energies of the soul transform. When we transform into the divine state, during the Confluence Age, they also transform into a divine state. Thus, a divine world is provided for us, from the beginning of the Golden Age. All QE Light and quantum energies were in the divine state during the first half cycle.  

When we transform into the ordinary state, the QE Light and quantum energies also transform into the ordinary state and then, they provide the ordinary world for us, from the beginning of the Copper Age. During the Mid-Confluence, the QE Light and quantum energies provide the new ordinary world:

1. as per the World Drama, 

2. since a world has to be created for people who indulge in the vices.

3. since some of the QE Light and quantum energies, which were further away from the powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods, were not sustained to remain in the divine state. Since they transformed into the ordinary state, they became different kinds of energies. Some of the QE Light and quantum energies also transformed into the ordinary state because some of the energies of the soul had transformed into the vices when a vice was entertained in the mind of a deity soul. Different energies are in different dimensions. The transformed QE Light and quantum energies were in a lower dimension since they had transformed into the denser ordinary state.

As some of the QE Light and quantum energies transformed into the ordinary state, it was as if they exploded out into existence to create the ordinary universe. The more powerful gods in the higher Silver Aged world were just subtly watching it happen. They were not affected by it because they were in the higher Silver Aged world. They remained in the higher Silver Aged world since their spiritual strength was still quite powerful. Their world was just beginning to transform but nothing different was physically seen in Devaloka, originally. However, since the Silver Aged earth was transforming into the ordinary state, a new ordinary world was getting created in the lower dimension. After sometime, there were some differences in the southern sky since it was so far away from the spiritually powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods.

Much later, since the more powerful deity souls were getting weaker, they were not able to sustain many of their citizens who were living further away from them in Devaloka. Hence, these weaker citizens, who were capable of easily indulging in the vices, dropped into a lower world (hereafter referred to as ‘Bhuloka’) which was provided in a dimension that was between Patala (the ordinary world) and Devaloka.

I am going to use some calculations based on the Hindu cycle because the Hindu Cycle is supposed to keep a record of what had happened, during the Mid-Confluence, based on the time as it was on the ordinary earth. Based on the calculations done for the Hindu Cycle, the 1st Manvantara began around 1,971,221,122 (around 2 billion) ordinary earth years ago. This was the time on the ordinary earth when the citizens dropped into Bhuloka, i.e. it was the time when Bhukola continually began to exist in that lower dimension.

Bhuloka, actually consists of two different dimensions which I refer to as: Higher Bhuloka and Lower Bhuloka. It is easier to briefly relate history through just referring to Devaloka, Bhuloka and the ordinary world (Patala). Therefore, I prefer to just use the word ‘Bhuloka’ when I am referring to both (Higher Bhuloka and Lower Bhuloka) or to either one of them. I only use the words Higher Bhuloka and Lower Bhuloka when there is a need to specifically refer to either of these Bhulokas.

All the fallen citizens were in Higher Bhuloka, after having dropped into Bhuloka from Devaloka. Originally, time flowed at the same rate in Higher Bhuloka as it did in Devaloka because Higher Bhuloka was closely connected to Devaloka. Everything that was in Higher Bhuloka can be said to be part and parcel of the Silver Aged world. Even so, the powerful gods were spiritually aware that the environment was different around these fallen citizens, though they could still see these people in their world. With time, there were also changes taking place, in a physical way, in these fallen areas.

Those who indulged in the vices dropped into Lower Bhuloka where time flowed at a faster rate than in Devaloka. However, time did not flow as quickly here as it flowed on the ordinary earth. Lower Bhuloka was closely connected to the ordinary earth since those indulging in the vices were supposed to live in the ordinary world.

During the Mid-Confluence, everything that was getting buried in the various worlds (during earthquakes etc) were getting buried into the same earth because there was only one earth and all the worlds were occupying the same space. It can be said that everything got buried into the ordinary earth because the people are supposed to be living on the ordinary earth in the second half cycle and we are living on the ordinary earth now. What existed in Devaloka got pulled deeper into the earth since it cannot remain on the surface of the earth, during the second half cycle. Only what was created in Lower Bhuloka, during the final phase of the Mid-Confluence, could remain on the surface of the ordinary earth during the second half cycle. Thus, some of the pyramids remained and we can still see them.

What existed in Lower Bhuloka had just remained on the surface of the ordinary earth, when it dropped into the ordinary world, because what was in Lower Bhuloka was part and parcel of the ordinary earth. These got buried into the earth and waters, when there were destructive events. If there were destructive events when the structures of a civilisation fell, they were pulled into the ground of the ordinary earth and covered by mud, sand, waters etc. Then, later, when another civilisation was created at the same space on Bhuloka, it is actually above the structures that were buried earlier on. When the latter structures also got pulled into the earth, they were buried above the earlier structures in the ordinary earth. The older structures were pulled deeper down into the ordinary earth while the later ones will be above what had fallen previously. Since the worlds were dropping and merging into the earth in the ordinary world, everything can only be dated based on the flow of time in the ordinary world.

The people who had dropped into Bhuloka were living there until Bhuloka merged into the ordinary earth. Then, the ordinary world was their Bhuloka. Actually, until people drop into Bhuloka, it can be said that Devaloka is Bhuloka. However, I am not referring to Devaloka as Bhuloka because I don’t want to confuse the readers.

Originally, Bhuloka was just beneath Devaloka, and there was almost not much time difference between Devaloka, Higher Bhuloka and Lower Bhuloka. The flow of time, in these worlds, was not that different since:

1. they were all so close to each other, and

2. they were all in higher dimensions where time flowed slowly.

There was only a huge time difference between these higher worlds and the ordinary world. As the spiritual strength of the people got weaker and as the people began to indulge in the vices, Devaloka and Bhuloka (both Higher Bhuloka and Lower Bhuloka) began to drop to get closer to the ordinary world which was also dropping. The ordinary world was also dropping because the cosmic energies (QE Light and quantum energies), which provide the ordinary world, are also dependent on the spiritual state of the human beings, and the spiritual state of the human beings keeps dropping with time. The differences in time, among the higher worlds, increased as these higher worlds were dropping and getting closer to the ordinary earth because:

1. the people, who were in Lower Bhuloka, were indulging in the vices. So Lower Bhuloka was dropping faster than Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka.

2. the people, who were in Higher Bhuloka, were spiritually weaker and were capable of indulging in the vices to a greater extent than the people in Devaloka. Thus, Higher Bhuloka was dropping faster than Devaloka but it was not dropping as fast as Lower Bhuloka.

The rate of flow of time was getting faster in the worlds that were dropping to get closer to the ordinary world because:

1. time flowed at a faster rate in the lower dimensions.

2. time was being influenced to flow at a faster rate as it got closer to the ordinary world. It was like this because the worlds were in the process of dropping to merge into the ordinary world.

Since Lower Bhuloka (where the people, who indulged in the vices, lived) began dropping more quickly than Higher Bhuloka:

1. Lower Bhuloka got closer to the ordinary earth more quickly than Higher Bhuloka.

2. the people, who dropped into Lower Bhuloka, were living in a world where time flowed more quickly.

Later, as Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka were also dropping to merge into the ordinary earth, the rate of flow of time there was also getting similar to that on the ordinary earth. Since Higher Bhuloka was dropping more quickly than Devaloka, Higher Bhuloka was getting closer to ‘Lower Bhuloka and the ordinary earth’ more quickly than Devaloka.

During the Mid-Confluence, people were dropping into a few different dimensions depending on:

1. the spiritual strength of the soul, and

2. the extent to which they were indulging in the vices.

As the people were dropping, they began to use more and more dimensions based on their spiritual state. Hence, the people were actually also dropping into different Bhuloka dimensions. Each of those Bhuloka dimensions can be divided into a Higher Bhuloka and a Lower Bhuloka. In some of the Lower Bhulokas, time was flowing more quickly than in some of the other Lower Bhulokas. For example, time was flowing more quickly in the Lower Bhuloka where the lands of Africa and Middle East had fallen into, while time was flowing more slowly in the Lower Bhuloka where the lands of the Indus Valley Civilisation had fallen into. The Lower Bhuloka of the people in Egypt etc. was lower because:

1. these lands were further away from the powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods. Since the quantum/cosmic energies which provided these lands were further away from the powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods, these cosmic energies were weaker. Thus, they were denser and what they provided were in lower/denser dimensions.

2. the spiritual strength of the people living in and around Egypt was lower since these souls were spiritually weaker and they were further away from the powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods. The cosmic energies, which provided their bodies and environment, were also weaker since these souls were weaker.

Despite the above, it is easier to categorise all the Lower Bhulokas into one and give estimated times (based on evidences) for the events that were taking place in Egypt, Indus Valley civilisation, etc. For convenience, I also categorise all the different dimensions into the following three worlds: Devaloka, Bhuloka and Patala. It was only during the Mid-Confluence that these three worlds existed in the Corporeal World.

When relating history involving what happens as Mankind was dropping into the lower dimensions, I also prefer to refer to the time as it was in Lower Bhuloka or ordinary world because:

1. though people were actually living in Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka, it is the time in ‘Lower Bhuloka and ordinary world’ which is significant as a Record of Time for the ordinary world and for the second half cycle.

2. all the evidences which have been found are also indicating the time as it was in the Lower Bhuloka or ordinary world.

3. all that which happened during the Mid-Confluence had only taken place during the last Silver Aged birth, and not much had happened on Devaloka during the Mid-Confluence.

Just before the end of the Mid-Confluence, Lower Bhuloka was just above the ordinary world. Since people have to live on the ordinary earth from the beginning of the Copper Age, Bhuloka and Devaloka merged into the ordinary world by the end of the Mid-Confluence. All the higher worlds, including Devaloka, no longer existed from the beginning of the Copper Age. When all the higher worlds dropped and merged into the ordinary earth, all the people experienced time as it was on the ordinary earth.

The Mid-Confluence Aged gods’ next Copper Aged birth would have been from 500 BC, on the ordinary earth. Through calculating time, as it flows in the current world, it can be said that the Copper Age began around 500 BC, i.e. it began about 2500 years ago. At the beginning of the Copper Age, the Silver Aged people were helping the Copper Aged children until they grew up. Then, only the Copper Aged people remained on earth. Many of the powerful Silver Aged souls, who had not taken their next birth at the beginning of the Copper Age, were living in Vimanas (advanced flying crafts) that could bring them into dimensions where time flowed more slowly. These dimensions were in the ordinary universe itself, though time flowed more slowly there. Since these gods were supposed to be helping Mankind, they would have aged quickly when they came into the ordinary world to help the people. Thus, they would have taken their next birth in the Copper Age, soon after the beginning of the Copper Age.

During the Mid-Confluence, in comparison to the original slow flow of time in the higher dimensions, time was flowing very quickly in the ordinary world from the time the ordinary world was getting created until around 500 BC when Mankind had completely dropped into the ordinary world. It was as if not much time had passed in Devaloka, during the Mid-Confluence, though evidences seem to point to billions of years having passed by on the ordinary earth. Billions of years had flowed by on the ordinary earth, from the beginning of the Mid-Confluence, because time flowed very quickly there while time flowed more slowly in the world which we were living in. Though the Mid-Confluence seems to have existed for billions of years in the lower ordinary world, it would have only lasted for about 100 to 200 years for the gods who were living in the higher Silver Aged world. Thus, the history that is being related as having occurred during that time had actually taken place within 200 years (when time is calculated based on the time as experienced by people in Devaloka). However, nothing much had happened in Devaloka, during the Mid-Confluence. Memorable historical events were just happening in Bhuloka and the ordinary world. Further, evidences are only found in respect of what had existed in Bhuloka and on the ordinary earth. Thus, to relate this ancient history, we should be considering time as it was in Bhuloka and the ordinary earth. However, for very good reasons, God has related history, in the Brahma Kumaris, based on our lives in the Corporeal World.

Though the Mid-Confluence Aged gods had passed down relevant knowledge to the subsequent generations, there were no proper record of time and history, during the Mid-Confluence. Thus, subsequent people had created all sorts of theories, which they thought was the most logical, based on what had been handed down. As a consequence, time is recorded in some cultures based on the cosmological events in the ordinary world (as was done in the Hindu scriptures), while the Jews and Christians have recorded time more like the Time that is based on ‘human lives in the Corporeal World’. Therefore, the ‘End’ for the Christians is at about the same time as the end in the BK Cycle. However, BKs say that it is only the end of the Cycle and that the new Cycle is brought in after that. At the end of each Cycle of Time, there is an end to the ordinary world and a beginning for the new divine world because the world gets transformed from the ordinary state to the divine state. So there is no end but only a beginning with cyclic time repeating as it does during every Cycle.




Chapter 2: Floods, Ice Ages, etc.



When the human beings were not living on the ordinary earth, during the Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages (Mid-Confluence), it was chaotic on the ordinary earth. It was not habitable until human beings began dropping, from the higher worlds, to live in dimensions that were very close to the ordinary world. Therefore, Ice Ages and floods were also often taking place after the creation of the ordinary earth, i.e. from 4.6 billion years ago in the ordinary world. For convenience, I am going to refer to the time on the ordinary earth as ‘ordinary years ago’ so that I do not have to keep stating that I am referring to the time on the ordinary earth. It is being said that there may have been at least five documented major ice ages, during ancient times. There were also ‘alternative phases of ice ages and interglacial periods’ from around 2.6 million ordinary years ago and the last ice age was from about 115,000 ordinary years ago to about 11,700 ordinary years ago (about 9,700 BC).

When the Ice Ages existed on the ordinary earth, it would have influenced an ‘ice age like’ situation or a colder environment to exist in Bhuloka also since what was happening in the ordinary world was influencing what existed in Bhuloka. Since Bhuloka had got so close to the ordinary earth, by 11,700 ordinary years ago, the climate on the ordinary earth began to become suitable for human habitation. The world had to go through the final flood, after the last Ice Age, since humans were about to drop into the ordinary world. I refer to this flood as the Copper Aged Great Flood because it occurred during the final phase of the Mid-Confluence which overlapped the beginning of the Copper Age. The Christians refer to it as the Great Flood.

Around the time of the Copper Aged Great Flood, Bhuloka was close to the ordinary earth. Thus, time was similar to how it was on the ordinary earth, though time was flowing more slowly there than in the ordinary world. The time span had stretched, in Bhuloka, since it was closer to the ordinary world. Therefore, in Bhuloka, there was a long way more to reach 500 BC, similar to how there was a long way more to reach 500 BC on the ordinary earth. However, in Devaloka (the Silver Aged world), there was just about 100 or less years left to reach 500 BC, depending on which phase of the Mid-Confluence the people were in.

On the ordinary earth, from the time when it was around 20,000 ordinary years ago, global warming occurred until about 10,000 ordinary years ago. Thus, the water level began rising and it can be said that the flood began from around 20,000 ordinary years ago. However, the flood was only experienced later and it only got quite bad when it was around 9,600 BC. It should be noted that around this time, which was around the ending phase of the Mid-Confluence, whatever was happening on Bhuloka was affecting what was happening on the ordinary earth and what was happening on the ordinary world was affecting what existed on Bhuloka. Thus, there were floods in Bhuloka and the ordinary world. The flood badly hit different places on Bhuloka, at different times, because:
1. the people were living in various different dimensions. The people in the different dimensions experienced the flood at different times because of Time Dilation.
2. destructive events, which were affecting different places at different times, were making the flood worse in different places at different times.

Therefore, in the scriptures, the flood has been portrayed as having occurred at different times, as can be seen below:

1. Based on information in the Bible, Christians have suggested different dates as to when the flood took place. Some of the suggested dates as to when the flood took place are 2350 BC, 2459 BC and 2472 BC.

2. From what has been said in the Mahabharata and based on evidences that have been found, it can be said that Dwarka submerged into the waters during a flood. Based on information in the Hindu scripture, it is being said that this event, in the Mahabharata, may have taken place around 3,100 BC.

3. It is being said that Lanka was previously joined to India and that the flood had divided up India and Lanka. In the Ramayana, those helping Rama had to build a bridge to cross from India to Lanka. Thus, the flood must have already been in existence at that time. Based on information in the Hindu scripture, it is being said that this event, in the Ramayana, took place around 5,100 BC.

4. Based on information in the ancient Tamil texts regarding the three Sangams, which were assemblies of Tamil scholars and poets, it is being said that these three Sangams had taken place around the time of the flood. It has been suggested that the First Sangam took place between 9600 BC to 5200 BC (during the time of the flood). The Second Sangam, which had taken place after the First Sangam, had also taken place during the time of the flood. The Third Sangam, which started after the Second Sangam, must have begun during the time of the flood and lasted until long after the time of Christ.

5. Based on information in the Hindu scriptures, it can be said that the present 7th Manvantara’s Manu began to have world rule from the beginning of the 7th Manvantara, i.e. from about 121 million years ago. This Manu was portrayed as having been kept safe, by a Vishnu avatar, during the flood. He started the new civilisation in Bhuloka, after the flood. This reflects that floods had taken place on the ordinary earth, from a long time ago, after the ordinary earth was created. Evidences also reflect that there was a flood around a few hundred thousand years ago and even around a few thousand years ago because there were more than one flood after the ordinary earth was created.

There were many flood-like situations on the ordinary earth, even before the Copper Aged Great Flood, because the ordinary earth was in a chaotic state from the time it was created in the lower dimension. As these floods occurred, on the ordinary earth, lands from higher worlds were dropping into lower dimensions. There were frequent destructive events, such as floods and earthquakes, on the ordinary earth and Bhuloka, especially around the time of the Copper Aged Great Flood, because:
1. the lands were dropping from the higher worlds to merge into the lower worlds and the ordinary earth. Destructive events were taking place due to the land masses dropping to merge.
2. changes were taking place in the ordinary world to accommodate the merging of the higher worlds into the ordinary world.
3. changes were taking place in the Corporeal World as the Corporeal World was transforming from the perfect state to the ordinary state. For example, changes were taking place in outer space and in the Silver Aged world, as these were transforming from the perfect state to the ordinary state.
4. destructive events were taking place in the World Drama due to people indulging in the vices.

The flood lasted for a longer time in specific places on Bhuloka, when people were indulging in the vices, because destructive nuclear weapons etc were used. Due to such events, the flood can be said to have begun and ended at different times in the different places. Sometimes, after the end of a flood, another flood had easily occurred because it was the time when floods were meant to exist, as per the World Drama.

It can also be said that the flood, which began 121 million years ago, continued until around the beginning of the Copper Age, even though there were Ice Ages during the flood. It can also be said that the flood has continued until now and that it will continue until the end of the Cycle of Time. Since the North Pole and South Pole are still covered by ice, it can also be said that we are still in the Ice Age. As the ice melts at both the poles, the flood will get worse. The myth about the 7th Manu being kept safe in a boat is similar to how Noah was kept safe during the flood so as to start the new civilisation after the flood. This Manu and Noah also reflect what happens during the Confluence Age, at the end of every Cycle of Time.

Even based on what was said in the ancient Tamil texts, in respect of the three Sangams, it can be said that the flood existed over a long duration of time. Since the First Sangam is said to have lasted for a duration of 4440 years, the Second Sangam was held over a duration of 3700 years and the Third Sangam lasted for a duration of 1850 years, it is being suggested that the flood lasted for a total of at least 10,000 years. However, in the Bible, it has been said that the flood lasted for 40 days and 40 nights. The number 40 is just a symbolic representation. The fact that they used a smaller number reflects that they were trying to calculate time based on the flow of time in the world which we live in (as is done in the BK Cycle). Further, at the end of the Cycle, there will be a bad flood too. The Christians have connected this flood to the Copper Aged Great Flood because they do not live in the Golden and Silver Ages. For this reason too, they may have just given a symbolic number. When those in the line of Abraham, at the beginning of the Copper Age, were making spiritual effort to understand what had happened in the past, they would have just remembered what had happened during their previous birth at the end of the previous cycle. This would have influenced what they preached. If one wants to relate history based on the flow of time in Lower Bhuloka and in the ordinary world, what is being said by the Indians can be said to be more accurate. Since I am trying to rewrite the history that is being taught to the people in the Kaliyug world, I would prefer to rely on information that has been provided based on evidences. Thus, I would say that the Copper Aged Great Flood began around 10,500 BC, i.e. from around the ending phase of the last Ice Age. I also prefer to say this now because I am trying to relate what happens around the time just before the Copper Age when people started falling into dimensions that were close to the ordinary earth. In this book, when I refer to the time just before the Copper Aged Great Flood, I am referring to the time just before or around 10,500 BC on the ordinary earth. It should be noted that I am just giving rough estimates as to when the flood occurred so as to easily relate this history.

Most of the southern, eastern and western lands (in these three cardinal directions of the world) had dropped into Bhuloka and got destroyed through floods by 12,000 ordinary years ago. Around that time even the northern people (the people living in North India) were beginning to drop into Lower Bhuloka; however, it was easy to bring many of these northerners back into a higher world. Only some of them remained in Lower Bhuloka to work together with the southerners for administration of everything in the lower worlds. As floods and other destructive events were taking place, people:
1. lived in underground bases,
2. moved to safer grounds on boats, etc.,
3. lived in advanced crafts that remained underwater,
4. flew into the sky region or into other dimensions to live in the Vimanas (flying crafts), or
5. migrated to live on higher lands such as on the mountains, etc.

Since most of the people were dropping to live on Bhuloka from just before the time of the Great Flood, what was happening around the time of the flood is significant. To relate this history, I am going to divide the time of the Copper Aged Great Flood into four. Just as everything goes through the satopradhan, sato, rajo and tamo phases, even the duration of the Copper Aged Great Flood can be divided into these four phases. The satopradhan phase of the flood was when the people got to know that a flood was going to take place. Since the scientists had advanced scientific gadgets, they knew when earthquakes and floods were going to take place. This can be said to be the beginning of the flood or earthquake because the earth and its environment are affected as the destructive event begins. The advanced scientific gadgets could detect these changes before the destructive event actually took place in a visible manner. Thus, before the earthquakes and floods took place, the people were brought to different places were new civilisations were created for them. Since the souls were still pure and have not committed any sins, there was no reason why they had to suffer during a destructive event. Actually, the people were having a good time during the satopradhan phase of the flood because they were having a new adventure in a new place and everything was provided so that they could be comfortable in the new place. The sato phase of the flood was during the beginning phase of the flood. The people were still having a good time since they were enjoying a new life in their new place. The rajo phase of the flood was when the flood waters were receding. The people were being prepared to do something to help bring the affected lands back into a good state so that people can comfortably settle on those lands again, after the flood. The tamo phase of the flood was when people began to do something as they began to live on the lands where there were floods previously. They may have had a difficult time during the tamo phase of the flood because they had to make the lands habitable, create shelters and start growing food to survive. Though I have divided the time of the flood into the four phases, the same thing does not happen to everyone because we live in a World Drama where there is variety.

When many were falling into dimensions that were close to the ordinary earth, before the Copper Age officially began, they remained there for some time before they were brought back into a higher dimension where another civilisation was created for them. The places, where they were living in, were abandoned when these people were given new places to stay in a higher world. For this reason also, some places were abandoned and other civilisations were created.

During the time of the flood, the people who were in Lower Bhuloka were living simple lives doing farming and rearing animals whereas there were civilisations, which were flourishing along the rivers, in Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka. The people who were living in Lower Bhuloka and the beings in the ordinary world were living a Stone Aged life while the people in Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka were living in advanced civilisations (if they were living in the civilisations). Those living outside the civilisations, in Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka, were living very simple lives like the people on Lower Bhuloka.

The structures that had existed during the Silver Age had already been pulled into the earth long before the Copper Age began, and different civilisations had already been created for them on Devaloka and on Bhuloka. In the present Kaliyug world, it is impossible to see the evidences of the perfect world of the first half cycle because the evidences of that earlier beautiful world had got buried deeper down during the earlier destructive events. Only those that had existed just before the Copper Age can be seen because they were:
1. so close to the ordinary earth, and
2. so close to the Copper Age.

Bhuloka was looking almost like the ordinary world, from just before the Copper Aged Great Flood, since it was transforming into the ordinary state. Most people had also dropped into dimensions, which were very close to the ordinary earth, before the Copper Age began. Since the people were in dimensions that were so close to the ordinary world and they lived during a time that was so close to the Copper Age:
1. their world was similar to the Copper Aged world which existed later.
2. evidences that they had lived there, can be seen even now.

During the time just before the Copper Age, all the evidences that were getting buried into the earth, during destructive events, were transforming into the state as it was on the ordinary earth and becoming part of the ordinary earth. Thus, evidences will make it seem like they existed on the ordinary earth at the Time as it was on the ordinary earth. It is like this because they have transformed to become part of the ordinary world since the higher worlds were also transforming to look like the ordinary world.

Whatever evidences we see, which reflect that the ordinary earth existed before Mankind began to live on the ordinary earth, were part of the ‘time on the ordinary earth’ when people were not living on the ordinary earth, i.e. they are evidences of how it was on the ordinary earth from the time it was created in the lower dimension until around the time of flood when most of the people were living in Bhuloka that was very close to the ordinary earth. On the ordinary earth, it was a few thousand years before Christ when these people, who had dropped, were living in dimensions that were close to the ordinary earth. However, in Devaloka, it was just before 500 BC.

Everyone completely dropped and merged into Patala (the ordinary world) around 2500 years ago. The chaotic situation on the ordinary earth had settled down to provide a good world stage for us, after the the time of the bad flood, since nuclear weapons were no longer used and the world stage for the people of the second half cycle had to be provided on the ordinary earth.






Chapter 3: Traveling between Worlds, other Phenomena and Circumstances around the Time of the Flood



During the Mid-Confluence (Confluence between the Silver and Copper Ages), while some people were dropping into lower worlds, others were travelling between worlds so as to help the fallen people, etc. Travelling between worlds is different from dropping into the lower worlds. People dropped into lower worlds when their spiritual strength got weakened or when they entertained a vice in their mind. However, spiritually powerful embodied souls could easily travel between worlds through just a thought. Their ability to travel between worlds depended on:
1. their spiritual strength, and
2. which dimension they were living in.

When the citizens (who were the weaker souls) began dropping into lower dimensions, the more powerful Mid-Confluence Aged gods (who were the rulers in the Silver Aged world) had sent their representatives into the lower worlds to help the fallen people so that:
1. they stop falling further.
2. they are brought back into higher dimensions.

The Mid-Confluence Aged gods (referred to as the ‘gods’ hereafter) had done this because the rulers have a duty to take care of their people. Sometimes, a god had also gone into a lower world to assist his helpers and everyone. Through a thought, the spiritually more powerful ones could bring themselves into a higher or lower world.

During the first half cycle, the pure perfect world was provided in the Higher Universe. The Sumerian myths portray that the gods had come into our universe from elsewhere or from heaven because the people of the first half cycle were living in a world that was in the Higher Universe. The Hindu scriptures have also portrayed the gods as being in a higher realm for the same reason and since Devaloka was always in a higher dimension.

During the Copper and Iron Ages, our world is provided in the Lower Universe. Thus, during the Mid-Confluence, the world was dropping from the Higher Universe to the Lower Universe. The worlds were dropping into the lower dimensions of the Higher Universe before they dropped into the Lower Universe. Lower Bhuloka only began dropping into the Lower Universe during the time before the Copper Aged Great Flood. Higher Bhuloka began dropping into the Lower Universe from around the beginning of the flood while Devaloka began dropping into the Lower Universe during the ending phase of the flood.

The different worlds were in different dimensions of different densities, i.e. each world was provided by QE Light and quantum energies of different densities. It can be said that the Silver Aged world (Devaloka) was on top of the lower worlds since:
1. Devaloka was provided by lighter energies which were higher up.
2. the lower worlds were provided by denser energies which were lower down.

Actually, the Higher Universe, Lower Universe and all the dimensions in the Holographic Universe were using the same space. However, during experiences, one could perceive the Higher Universe as being higher up (since the energies involved were lighter) and one could see the Lower Universe as being lower down (since it consisted of denser energies). Though the Higher Universe overlapped the Lower Universe, the Higher Universe was less dense and everything in it were also provided by less dense energies, so it was as if everything that was in the Higher Universe was higher up.

From the beginning of the Mid-Confluence, since the people were in their final Silver Aged birth, they were still the spiritual warriors who were capable of remaining in the pure virtuous state (though the vices were now able to emerge in their minds). If the vices emerged in their minds, they immediately pushed them away because they were aware that it was wrong to entertain the vices in the mind. Thus, they remained in Devaloka. If they entertained a vice in their mind and dropped into a lower dimension:
1. they could easily understand that they had dropped due to entertaining the vice, and
2. they would immediately push aside the vice and go back into Devaloka.

Thereafter, they would be more careful not to entertain a vice in their mind. Later, though many of the citizens had dropped into Higher Bhuloka due to their weaker spiritual state, they were still living in the Higher Universe. If they entertained a vice in their mind, due to their weaker state, they dropped into Lower Bhuloka. Only the more powerful rulers and the more powerful citizens remained in Devaloka.

When Bhuloka was still in the Higher Universe, those who were living in Devaloka could easily travel between all the worlds through just a thought that they are going into the other world. Hence, the gods and their helpers, who were living in Devaloka, could easily take care of their people who were in lower worlds. After having gone into a lower world, they could easily go back into Devaloka because:
1. they were still spiritually powerful, and
2. they remained in the pure powerful state.

The more powerful ones, who were living in Higher Bhuloka, could also easily go into Devaloka through some spiritual/religious efforts. The spiritually weaker citizens, in Higher Bhuloka, found it a little harder to go back to Devaloka unless they made intense spiritual efforts or/and were assisted by the more powerful souls, etc. Since the gods had to help their people:
1. the sciences were developed so that better stuff could be created to help the people remain in higher dimensions and to help those who were involved with traveling between dimensions.
2. greater spiritual/religious development took place to keep all the people in a pure state. While they were in the pure state, they could go back into higher dimensions and were temporarily stopped from dropping into the lower dimensions. Through using the spiritual/religious teachings and practices, they also found it easier to travel between dimensions.

The fallen people were able to remain in Higher Bhuloka, and not drop into Lower Bhuloka, if they immediately pushed aside the vices that emerged in their minds. Spiritual/religious practices helped them to push aside the vices and not entertain them. If they entertained a vice in their minds, instead of pushing it aside, they dropped into Lower Bhuloka.
 
Spiritual/religious teachings were also being introduced to the people because those who were entertaining the vices in their mind, in Lower Bhuloka, could not go back into a higher dimension and they were continuing to drop into lower dimensions. They could only go into a higher dimension:
1.  if they made spiritual efforts to remain pure over a long duration of time.
2. through getting assistance from the more powerful souls.

Further, if they did not entertain a vice for a long time, in their mind, their Lower Bhuloka remained in the Higher Universe. If they entertained the vices in their mind for a longer duration of time, their Lower Bhuloka would begin to drop out of the Higher Universe, i.e. it would be:
1. somewhere near the border of the Higher Universe, or
2. between the Higher Universe and Lower Universe.

The spiritual teachings were also helping these people to remain in the Higher Universe since they would be able to keep the vices at bay. However, with time, Lower Bhuloka had to drop out of the Higher Universe because the worlds continued to drop as the spiritual strength of the souls was continuing to weaken. When their spiritual strength dropped, they were easily entertaining the vices in their minds for a longer duration of time unless they were helped by their spiritual/religious efforts. Since some were entertaining the vices in their minds for a longer duration of time, Lower Bhuloka had continued to drop. Everything was happening as per the World Drama though the people could help themselves to a certain extent. When Lower Bhuloka was between the Higher Universe and Lower Universe:

1. the people in the higher worlds could still easily travel between the worlds that existed in the Higher Universe.
2. the people, who had dropped into Lower Bhuloka, found it very hard to go into the higher words. However, it was still possible to a certain extent through using meditation/religious practices, advanced scientific crafts, structures, gadgets etc.
3. the people (in the higher worlds) were finding it harder to move between a higher world and Lower Bhuloka because Lower Bhuloka was dropping out of the Higher Universe. However, the more powerful ones could still travel between a higher world and Lower Bhuloka. The weaker ones, who were still living in Devaloka, could still travel between a higher world and Lower Bhuloka through using meditation/religious practices, advanced scientific crafts, structures, gadgets etc.

While it was still before the Copper Aged Great Flood, since the spiritual strength of the souls was very much weaker, the people in Lower Bhuloka had begun carrying out actions based on the influence of the vices. This was reflected in the Bible through Cain killing Abel. In the Biblical myth, after Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden, Eve gave birth to Cain and then to Abel. This myth basically relates how people became sinful after having left the pure divine world of the first half cycle. Actions carried out based on the influence of the vices are sinful actions and intense impure vibrations are emitted into the surrounding from those who carry out such actions. Sinful people cannot remain in the Higher Universe because:

1. the pure people, in the Higher Universe, cannot be subjected to such actions and to such impure vibrations.
2. the QE Light, which are in the highest part of the Higher Universe, cannot be subjected to such impure vibrations. These QE Light have to remain in the pure state for the initial creation of everything, as per the World Drama.

Therefore, when people began to carry out actions, based on the influence of the vices, Lower Bhuloka dropped into the Lower Universe. This protected the people and the pure QE Light, in the Higher Universe, because there is a barrier between the Higher Universe and Lower Universe. A barrier exists between the Higher Universe and Lower Universe because these are two completely different kinds of dimensions which provide different kinds of worlds:
1. The pure perfect world is provided in the Higher Universe.
2. The ordinary world is provided in the Lower Universe.

During the ending phase of the Confluence Age, the pure people in the Golden Aged world cannot be affected by the impure vibrations from the people who are still living in the Kaliyug world since they have not left for the Soul World as yet. Since the Golden Aged world is in the Higher Universe and the Kaliyug world is in the Lower Universe, the barrier keeps the pure people safe in the Golden Aged world. During the Mid-Confluence, the situation was a little different because all the people were originally pure. Though a vice could emerge in their minds, they were able to push it aside easily and continue living a pure virtuous life until a later part in the Mid-Confluence. If instead of immediately pushing it away, they entertained the vice in their mind, they dropped into Lower Bhuloka. So long as they did not indulge in the vices for too long and did not carry out an action based on the influence of the vices, their Lower Bhuloka would be in the Higher Universe itself. If they did an action based on the influence of a vice, their Lower Bhuloka dropped into the Lower Universe.

After Lower Bhuloka dropped into the Lower Universe, it was more difficult for people to travel between Lower Bhuloka and the higher worlds because:
1. the higher worlds were still in the Higher Universe whereas Lower Bhuloka was not,
2. the souls were getting spiritually weaker, and
3. the fallen souls were in a sunken state within the denser material world, in the Lower Universe, while the others were on the verge of going into this sunken state.

The world and bodies, in Lower Bhuloka, were denser when Lower Bhuloka had dropped into the Lower Universe. However, these were not as dense as it is from the beginning of the Copper Age. Bhuloka and everything in it got denser as Bhuloka got closer to the ordinary world. People found it more difficult to travel between dimensions when they were in denser bodies. Further, those who had fallen into the Lower Universe were not able to go back into the Higher Universe because there is a barrier between the Higher Universe and Lower Universe. They have to remain in the Lower Universe until the end of the Cycle when they are uplifted again through the Confluence Age.

After Lower Bhuloka had dropped into the Lower Universe, many were living in the Lower Universe, while others were still able to live in the Higher Universe through remaining pure or through making spiritual/religious efforts. The deity souls who had taken their first birth in the Corporeal World, around the end of the Silver Age, were enjoying their satopradhan time at that time even though it was not the Golden Age. They and the powerful rulers could easily remain in the Higher Universe for a while. They were still seen as the gods/devas.

Actually, once a vice has emerged in the mind of a deva, in the Silver Aged world, the people lose their perfect world and they become mortals. However, it took some time for them to become mortals. Those in Devaloka, in the Higher Universe, were still like the devas/gods. So they were considered as the gods. Those who had dropped out of Devaloka were no longer seen as the gods but it took them sometime to transform into mortals. It was the people who were in the process of dropping into the Lower Universe and those who were in the higher dimensions within the Lower Universe who were actually becoming mortals because mortals live in the Lower Universe while the gods live in the Higher Universe. Those who had already dropped into the dimensions that were close to the ordinary world, in the Lower Universe, were already mortals. Mortals are people who feel that they are the bodies; they do not have the feeling that they are the souls who are in a body. The gods felt that they were the souls who were using their bodies to live, i.e. they were soul conscious and immortals. The gods could easily travel between the Higher Universe and the Lower Universe but mortals cannot go back into the Higher Universe on their own.

When the people were dropping into the Lower Universe, the ordinary world had to become habitable since:
1. the people were about to drop into the ordinary world which was also in the Lower Universe.
2. Lower Bhuloka would soon be merging into the ordinary world which was also in the Lower Universe.
3. the environment in Lower Bhuloka and the ordinary world would be influenced to become similar.

As a consequence, the Ice Age had to end and the flood had to begin. Some people had to face difficulties during the flood because they had done sinful actions. More and more people were also dropping into Lower Bhuloka, from the higher worlds, since they were getting weaker and beginning to indulge in the vices. The spiritually weak fallen citizens had completely lost their ability to travel into the higher worlds since they were trapped within the Lower Universe through becoming mortals. Yakshas (scientifically modified animals) and administrators of the lower worlds were used to help the people in the lower worlds. These yakshas and administrators were involved with travelling between dimensions since the people were dropping into different dimensions. The yakshas were given specialized abilities through genetic engineering, so that they can easily travel between dimensions. Only the gods, their helpers and yakshas were travelling between dimensions through using the advanced crafts, scientific gadgets, etc. Before Devaloka dropped into the Lower Universe, those who were in Devaloka normally remained there, while those who were involved with taking care of the fallen people in the lower worlds were often living in their Vimanas which could bring them into dimensions, within the Lower Universe, where Time flowed more slowly.

When the people in Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka were getting spiritually weaker, the QE Light and quantum energies around them (which provided the world for them) were also getting weaker; weaker energies are denser. The denser the energies, the more the world looked like the ordinary world. When the people had become even weaker, the energies that provided their world had become very dense. Such dense energies could only exist in the Lower Universe. Therefore, Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka had also dropped into the Lower Universe. Higher Bhuloka had dropped into the Lower Universe before Devaloka because the spiritual strength of the people in Higher Bhuloka was very much weaker than that of the people in Devaloka. The spiritual strength of the people in Higher Bhuloka got very weak from around the beginning of the flood. Thus, Higher Bhuloka began dropping into the Lower Universe from around then. The spiritual strength of those in Devaloka only got weak during the ending phase of the flood. Hence, Devaloka only dropped around this time.

It was only after Higher Bhuloka and Devaloka dropped into the Lower Universe that people found it easier to travel between all worlds because everyone was in the Lower Universe. For awhile, the powerful gods could still go back into the Higher Universe through intense spiritual/religious efforts. However, with time, everyone was finding it more and more difficult to go back into the Higher Universe. Then, as the Copper Age was about to begin, they could no longer go into the Higher Universe. Consequently, the more powerful ones were just living in the higher dimensions within the Lower Universe or they were living in vimanas (flying crafts) which could keep them in dimensions, within the Lower Universe, where time flowed more slowly.

Actually, when Devaloka dropped into the Lower Universe:
1. it is no longer Devaloka. It is another Higher Bhuloka.
2. the gods were also becoming like mortals. However, since they were powerful yogis, they were able to delay the process of becoming mortals.

Devaloka had to drop into the Lower Universe because, as per the World Drama, everything had to drop into the denser Lower Universe when the gods became spiritually weaker. Hence, during the ending phase of the Copper Aged Great Flood, most of the people in Devaloka were dropping into the Lower Universe. Since they were weaker, many among them began indulging in the vices and dropped into Lower Bhuloka. The rulers (of the Kingdom of Bharath) and/or their representatives were often in North India, in Bhuloka, with these people since the rulers were supposed to take care of the people. The role of Krishna and Parikshit (the son of the Pandava named Arjuna) were played by the gods, during the ending phase of the Copper Aged Great Flood. Parikshit’s role had continued after Devaloka had completely dropped into the Lower Universe. Parikshit and his son/successor Janamejaya had also helped to develop the Vedic culture further, in North India, for the people who had fallen there. More on all these will be discussed in the later chapters of this book.

During the Mid-Confluence, the original rulers in Devaloka were seen as the gods and some of those involved with administration in the lower worlds had been made rulers in the lower worlds. The rulers in the lower worlds were seen as ruling on behalf of the gods. The gods only came into the lower worlds if the lower world rulers were not able to manage everything on their own, e.g. when some people were creating problems in the lower worlds due to indulging in the vices. Therefore, in the scriptures and myths around the world, the gods were portrayed as coming into the world of mortals so as to help the rulers and the people. Such things no longer happened after all the Silver Aged souls took their next Copper Aged birth because everyone was living in the ordinary world. Actually, the scripture stories are also reflecting what happens during the Confluence Age. However, in this book, I am not explaining about the Confluence Aged aspects, I am just explaining about what had happened during the Mid-Confluence. It should be noted that what was happening during the Copper Age had also influenced what was written in the scriptures because most of the scriptures were put into writing during the Copper Age.

During the Mid-Confluence, when one dropped into the ordinary world or a lower world, one did not experience time as flowing quickly in the lower world because one experienced time based on one’s life-span. One only became aware that time flowed at different rates in the different dimensions when one got involved with travelling between the various worlds.

Around the time of the Copper Aged Great Flood, since Lower Bhuloka was being provided in dimensions that were very close to the ordinary world, there was not much differences in the flow of time, in these two worlds, e.g. 1 year might have passed in Lower Bhuloka while 10 to 1000 years passed in the ordinary world (depending on which higher dimension, and which phase of the Mid-Confluence, one was in). Thus, one could age quickly or slowly when one was involved with travelling between worlds; for example, around the ending phase of the Copper Aged Great Flood, if a person dropped from Bhuloka to live on the ordinary earth for a 100 years and then, he managed to go back to live on Bhuloka, he might notice that only around 10 years had passed on Bhuloka while he lived for 100 years in the ordinary world. This means that he returned to Bhuloka as an old man. Based on the flow of time in the ordinary world, it can be said that a person lives in Bhuloka for about 1000 years. However, in Bhuloka, the people would only feel that they have lived for 100 years and not for 1000 years. Whether we lived on the ordinary earth or in any of the higher worlds, we experienced time as flowing at the same rate since we experience time based on our life-span. This is why we get about 5000 years when we total the number of years we live in all our lives, in the Corporeal World, during every Cycle of Time.

In the class given on the night of 05/01/1969 (which was read in the BK centers, along with the morning murli, on 16th April 2019; https://bkmurli.com/today-murli-16-april-2019-daily-murli-english; https://brahmakumarismurli.blogspot.com/2019/04/16-04-19.html), it was said:

“According to the dramaplan, everyone has to return home. You have returned home many times. Some do not stay at home for the full 5000 years, and some stay in the home for the full 5000 years. They come here at the end, and so it would be said that they have stayed in the land of peace for 4,999 years. We would say that we have been in this world on this earth for 4,999 years.”

The words “home” and “land of peace” refer to the Soul World. Some souls leave the Soul World to take their first birth in the Corporeal World, at the end of the Cycle. They only live one life on earth before going back to the Soul World. They do not live their life for just one year, as can be inferred from what has been said during the abovementioned night class. Based on their life-span, they might live for about 100 years since it is their first birth in the Corporeal World and they have nothing to settle. Further, deity souls who take their first birth, in the Corporeal World, from the beginning of the Golden Age, live in the Corporeal World for 5000 years. Instead of only using the words ‘5000 years’, the words “4999 years” has also been used during the abovementioned night class, i.e. one year has been deducted from the 5000 years. This, and some souls being made to look like they only live for one year in the Corporeal World, might indicate that consideration was being given to the fact that time dilation is experienced by human beings in the Corporeal World:
1. during the Mid-Confluence, and
2. at the end, after the Golden Aged world materialises.

It should be kept in mind that, in the murlis, it is stated that the Cycle repeats every 5000 years. The ‘5000 years’ is calculated based on the all the lives which the deity souls live, in the Corporeal World, from the beginning of the Golden Age. The words “4999 years” is probably an indication that time should be calculated in a different way in the Corporeal World when time dilation is experienced (as it can be during the Mid-Confluence and at the end of the Confluence Age) due to more than one world being in existence.

One can also become aware of time dilation when one uses one’s aura to know of what is happening in the other worlds. Actually, while one is in the Higher Universe, one uses an aura which is just in the Higher Universe. While one is in the Lower Universe, one uses an aura which is just in the Lower Universe. However, it was a little different during the Mid-Confluence. During the beginning phase of the Mid-Confluence, since the gods were still spiritually powerful, their aura could extend from Devaloka to go into the ordinary world and other lower worlds even though the bodies of these gods remained in Devaloka. Thus, it was as if a powerful god could temporarily bring himself into a lower world or even into the ordinary world; then, he could always bring his presence back into his body which was in Devaloka. The gods did not leave Devaloka to go into the lower worlds, though they could bring their bodies into the lower worlds if they intended that. Since their auras could extend into the lower worlds, they had usually subtly sent their energies into the lower worlds so as to subtly see and know of what was happening in the lower worlds. When they sent their energies into the lower worlds, their aura extended into the lower worlds in order to provide the space for the vibrations of the soul to travel in. When the scientists wanted to do some research in the lower worlds through using scientific equipment, they modified animals and sent these into the lower worlds. These modified animals have been referred to as ‘yaksha’ in the Hindu scriptures. Due to the fact that the aura of the gods and scientists could extend into the lower worlds, they could subtly see and know of what the yakshas were doing in the lower worlds. Since these modified animals were still in the pure state, they did what they were subtly told to do by the gods and scientists. Sometimes, some of the energies of the gods or their helpers, had even entered the bodies of the yakshas to use the yaksha’s body to get everything done in a physical way in the lower worlds. This has been reflected in the Hindu scriptures through Vishnu taking the animal or half-animal avatars such as the Matsya (fish), Kurma (tortoise), Varaha (boar) and the Narasimha (lion-man) avatars.

It should be noted that the physical body has its own auric layer (auric field) within the aura. This has been referred to as the Etheric Field and it is like the physical body’s aura. The aura which we use actually includes more layers (auric fields) which are above the Etheric Field. We use these higher auric fields, as we live our lives. I have explained how we use them in my books, “Holographic Universe: An Introduction” and “Grow Rich while Walking into the Golden Aged World (with Meditation Commentaries)”.

The Etheric Field encloses the body and remains where the body exists. However, as we live our lives, the higher auric fields can extend into various dimensions.

As time passed, during the Mid-Confluence, some of the gods began to have the ability to keep their bodies in Devaloka while using a materialised subtle form in the lower worlds. They were able to do this because they could have an extended aura. The gods had a tall aura, for living purposes, when they kept their bodies in Devaloka while using subtle bodies in the lower worlds. This made sure that the gods did not grow old too quickly when they were in the lower worlds where time flowed at a faster rate. However, they cannot do things with this subtle body like how they can do things with a physical body, for example, they cannot move anything. They had to use the yakshas and fallen humans to get the required actions done in the lower worlds. With time, through their spiritual/religious practices, the gods and their powerful helpers were also able to materialise denser bodies in the lower worlds while their actual bodies remained in Devaloka. However, when the souls were getting spiritually weaker, their subtle forms were also getting denser in the lower worlds until, finally, they were using their physical bodies in the lower worlds, i.e. they had left Devaloka and were living in the lower worlds around the time of the flood. Since this happened to some of those involved with administration of the lower worlds, it had influenced the others (who were still in Devaloka) to not go into the lower worlds in any form. It also influenced the gods to take the decision that their representatives should act as them in the lower worlds.

If one went into a lower world, when Devaloka was still in the Higher Universe (before and during the time of the flood), one could bring oneself back into a higher world unless one became spiritually weak and so, one’s aura was no longer high enough to enable one to go back into Devaloka. The helpers, who were in the lower worlds, were easily becoming weaker; consequently their aura was no longer high enough to enable them to go back into Devaloka. Thus, the god’s preferred to just remain in Devaloka. Only the representatives of the gods were still trying to move between the higher and lower worlds. If they found it a little difficult, they would try to continue travelling between worlds through relying on:
1. spiritual/religious efforts, and
2. advanced crafts, scientific gadgets, structures, etc.

After Devaloka dropped into the Lower Universe, the aura of all the powerful souls could still expand higher up into the Higher Universe through spiritual/religious efforts etc because their spiritual strength was still quite high. Therefore, they could still bring themselves back into the Higher Universe. However, as the spiritual strength of these souls decreased tremendously, their aura could no longer go into the Higher Universe. It could just go into higher dimensions within the Lower Universe. They were slowly losing their ability to go into the Higher Universe, due to getting spiritually weaker. Nobody’s aura could go into the Higher Universe from the time when it was around 3102 BC on the ordinary earth, i.e. after Krishna was portrayed as having left Bhuloka. This is explained further in the next chapter.

Around the time of the flood, though the gods had used their helpers to do what was being done in the lower worlds, sometimes some of the gods did decide to live in the lower worlds or in the vimanas that temporarily hovered somewhere or the other in the lower worlds so as to monitor what was happening in the lower worlds. Often, the more powerful gods had just brought some of their energies into those who were living in the lower worlds or into the bodies of their helpers who were in the lower worlds. These people, who were in the lower worlds, were worshipping God; they also wanted the gods to enter them and use them to help the people in the lower worlds. When the energies of a god entered them, they were willing to allow the god to completely take over control of their bodies. Thus, the gods were able to help the people in the lower worlds through this way. This was reflected in the Hindu scriptures through Vishnu taking human avatars such as Vamana (the dwarf), Parashurama (the Brahmin), Rama (a virtuous king), Krishna (a royal prince) and Buddha (the Adi Buddha). These human avatars were taken after the animal and half-animal avatars had been taken. During the time when the bodies of the gods remained in a higher world while their energies had entered those who were in the lower worlds, a few minutes may have passed by in the higher world while many hours might have passed by in the lower world. So the gods did not age quickly and they could use another avatar later, when the need arose. I know that the gods had used others who were in the lower worlds because memories emerged of how my Mid-Confluence Aged part birth had entered the bodies of others, who were in the lower worlds, so as to help the people in the lower worlds when there were problems. My past birth had entered different people to get different tasks carried out. When some of the energies of the soul enter another body to take control, it can seem like we are in that body, living as that person. Therefore, memories of what I had done through others had emerged to make me think that I was those people. Such memories were emerging from the time before I joined the Brahma Kumaris. However, more of these memories began to emerge after I joined the Brahma Kumaris. With time, I had memories of being people who lived at around the same time (e.g. Sumana Saman and the Adi Buddha in Lanka). I could not understand how I could be two different people, who were living at about the same time, and was trying to reason it out as being different roles. If I had memories of doing something else as another person, in another place, I had formed the view that I must have been flying around playing different roles in different places or I must have taken different births to play different roles. I was thinking that each of those persons must have been a past birth of mine or a different role because my memories were reflecting that I had done something or the other as those people. It was only recently that I could properly understand these memories because I began to realise that it was only my energies (the energies of my soul) which were entering the bodies of others to play a role in the lower world where the fallen people were living. These memories must have emerged, during this birth, because I have a role to explain history.

It should be borne in mind that we are living in a variety play; so different people were doing different things at different times. However, generalised statements have been made here, while narrating history, based on what was happening to a number of people.
