ET or Breakaway Civilizations Of The Past? | The Sumerian God Anu and the Ancient Seers in the Rig Veda

Our history has been filtered and passed through many hands with various agendas, most of which are for manipulating the consciousness of the masses. Our worldviews, who we think we are and where we think we come from, greatly affects our belief systems and how we define our experiences. 

All of this provides the conditions for us to from perspectives which determine our reactions to events and things, either guiding us towards empowerment and self mastery, or determinism and victim hood. Look no further then Atheism to see that when a people think life is a cosmic accident, life seems meaningless and deterministic

As such, one of the ways to help transform negative and fearful thoughts and meanings is to develop a holistic world view, especially one grounded in an accurate concept of spirituality. This is best done by searching for truth in as many things as possible, not just one religion, history or philosophy. As time goes on we develop a grounded and holistic understanding, drawing from many perspectives which will eventually lead to grand understanding for life, the universe and everything. 

The Law of One is a good example of a grand philosophy echoed in countless other works, which can help transmute limiting belief systems, once we have done the work of contemplating what is offered. Blind belief will not work. the process must be a dynamic discovery of truth seeking, developing critical thinking skills and discernment processes. 




The following article details how the Vedas describe history, through their unique lenses and perspective. I suspect that as more information is revealed about our past, which seems to be happening with greater regularity, many of these seemingly different mythological histories will be seen as different perspectives on the same story. After all there is but one truth, yet infinite perspectives of it. 

Part of the data offered by Corey GoodETxSG relates to ancient breakaway civilizations and advanced races interacting with Earth. Possibly the Vedic myths are one such example.

The oldest of the Vedas, a large body of ancient literature and scriptures of Hinduism, the Rigveda contains poetic and mythological origin stories involving gods and their descendants.

In Hindu mythology, Angiras are celestial beings and descendants of gods, who watch over humans and protect sacrificial fires. The Angirasas are among the oldest families of Rishis (Seers) in the Rigveda. In this text, Agni, god of fire, is sometimes referred to as Angiras.

The supreme deity of the Sumerian pantheon is AN, or Anu. In the first two letters of the Sanskrit word An-gir-as, AN could refer to Anu. GIR might relate to the Akkadian fire-god— fire as in rocket propulsion. DinGIR in the cuneiform writing meant sky or heaven, and also a god or goddess.




The masters of the sky were perceived as deities by the earthbound. This reminds of Angiras and his descendants, the Angirasas, as a group of higher beings who traversed the realms between gods and men — an inter-stellar and inter-dimensional elite.

The seven Rishis are identified with the seven stars of the Big Dipper. Their wives are the six stars of the Pleiades (Krittikas), plus one visible double star of the Big Dipper. Originally these seven Rishis, sapta vipra, were identified as Angirasas. — [David Frawley]

The Angirasas and the Bhrigus families "...represent the pre-Rig Vedic past: they go so far back into the past that not only are they eponymous founders of these families (Angiras and Bhrigu respectively), but even certain other ancient Rishis belonging to these families (Brihaspati, Atharvan, Ushana) are already remote mythical persons in the Rigveda; and the names of the two families are already names for mythical and ritual classes: the Angirasas are deified as 'a race of higher beings between Gods and men'... the Bhrigus and the Atharvans are synonymous with fire-priests in general. ...the names of these two families are also found in the Iranian and Greek texts..." — [Shrikant G. Talageri]
A Hermit (Rishi), India was an inspired poet of Ṛegvedic hymns. They were responsible for tending sacrificial fires and were said to invoke gods with poetry. 11th century AD, pink sandstone.  
"No one can compare the Avestan poetry with the Indian [Rigvedic] poetry in its content, in its style of expression, and in its entire coloring, without coming to the conclusion, on account of their agreement in small details which force themselves on us at every step, that both the literatures point not only to a common origin of these two peoples and their religions, but also to a community of Indo-Iranian religious poetry, developed in well-established forms." — [Hermann Oldenberg]
"The name Anu or Ânava for the Iranians appears to have survived even in later times: the country and the people in the very heart of Avesta land, to the immediate north of Hâmûn-i Hilmand, were known as late as Greek times as the Anauon or Anauoi. The names of Anu tribes in the Rigveda and the Puranas can be clearly identified with the names of the most prominent tribes among latter-day Iranians." — [Shrikant G. Talageri]
Malati J. Shendge says "Sanskrit is derived from Akkadian and Sumerian...Sanskrit is not a language of the Aryas...It is essentially a lineal descendent of the languages of the Asuras." She states that the Rig Veda does not belong to the Aryas and in fact in her view this was "purely an assumption without any firm basis." 

And she states "...it is possible to find parallels in the Akkadian sources to many clans and personal names of the poets of Rig Vedic compositions, and of the Asuras, the enemies of Indra." She believes that the language of the Rig Veda — [meaning the older Vedic Sanskrit which is very different from the latter classical Sanskrit] — is a form of Akkadian and "that the Akkadian in the process of evolution has become what we know today as Sanskrit."
