Science to Sage Magazine Unveils Enlightened View of Existence
August 16, 2014 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) August 16, 2014 - This month's theme for the new issue of Science to Sage is Roots of Existence. Leading the way is a feature titled "Enlightenment & Existence" by Harvey Kraft, published author of "The Buddha from Babylon: The Lost History of Siddhartha Gautama." The article points out that 2,500 years ago the historical Buddha proposed a cosmic view of the Universe that seems to mirror recent scientific discoveries.
The article shows that ancient writings in the Buddhist sutras proposed a "big-bang-like" emergence of the Universe, as well as a theoretical analysis of Existence which the Buddha described as a cosmos of Relativity.
The article is based on new evidence and inferences that the author has discovered using a method of research that includes archaeological finds, linguistic analysis, and mythological interpretations. He has proposed that Siddhartha Gautama, the person who became the Buddha, spent several years as the head of the Magi and a philosopher-king of Babylon prior to achieving Enlightenment in the Indus area. He fled there as a result of a coup and a purge by the Persian Darius the Great in 522 BCE. The author further suggests that Babylon in the 6th C. BCE was the world's first incubator of astronomy, mathematics, philosophy and visionary insights.
