WHAT WERE RISHIS
TRYING TO TELL US?
1.
Ida is female (electrons, beta) energy, pingla is Male energy (protons, alpha) and the kundalini energy travels through shushumna (gamma waves which travels straight).

Did the Rishis try to tell us that basically we are high gamma waves (atma) trapped in a male or female body (protons and electrons) and our purpose is to merge with the main source. Because gamma waves always points towards its origin
   
2.
Rishis said that this world is an illusion (maya) science says that things have a shape because electromagnetic force applies differently on every molecule. If we remove electromagnetic force there will only be atoms and molecules.

Hence, electromagnetic force is nothing but illusion (maya).

According to Purans :

Once Brahma and Vishnu were overcome with the sense of self-importance. They began to argue as to who was the greater of the two. As the argument became heated, Lord Shiva had to intervene. Shiva took the form of a gigantic lingam (the phallic symbol of Shiva). The lingam was made of fire and it extended from the heaven to the underworld. The lingam told both Brahma and Vishnu that if any of them could find the end of the lingam, He will be declared as the greater of the two but they were not able to find the end of the lingam.

According to Science :

Gamma Ray Burst

Gamma Ray burst means gamma-rays coming from deep space. The brightness of this flash of gamma-rays can temporarily overwhelm all other gamma-ray sources in the universe. The burst can last from a fraction of a second to over a thousand seconds. The time that the burst occurs and the direction from which it will come cannot be predicted. Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) can release more energy in 10 seconds than the Sun will emit in its entire 10 billion-year lifetime.

In order to understand what a gamma-ray burst is, you must recognize gamma-rays as the most energetic form of light. Light, or electromagnetic radiation, can be thought of as coming in tiny packets of energy called photons. These photons come with a wide range of energies. At the low-energy end, we find radio waves. At the high-energy end, we find gamma-rays. The human eye is blind to nearly the entire electromagnetic spectrum, except for the very narrow range light that falls in what we call the "visible" (or "optical") range.

There are several current theories about the possible causes of gamma-ray bursts. One explanation proposes that they are the result of colliding neutron stars corpses of massive stars (5 to 10 times the mass of our Sun) that have blown up as supernova.

A second theory proposes that gamma-ray bursts are the result of a merging between a neutron star and a black hole or between two black holes. Black holes result when super massive (greater than 20 times the mass of our Sun) stars die. A theory that is attracting considerable attention states that gamma-ray bursts occur as the result of material shooting towards Earth at almost the speed of light as the result of a Hypernova. A Hypernova explosion can occur when the largest of the super massive stars come to the end of their lives and collapse to form black holes. Hypernova explosions can be at least 100 times more powerful than supernova explosions.

Does this mean that Shiva taking form of a gigantic lingam was nothing but a high Gamma ray burst coming out from Hypernova?

   
 4. WR 104 and Sagittarius (dhanu) :

WR 104

Fifteen years after its discovery, two astronomers say earth may still lie within the sights of a potentially lethal progenitor of a stellar gamma-ray burst (GRB).

Although WR 104, a Wolf-Rayet star some 8000 light years distant, has thus far remained largely quiescent, it is ripe to undergo a core-collapse supernova of the sort that could generate a seconds-long burst of gamma-rays that, in turn, might potentially wipe out a quarter of earth’s protective atmospheric ozone.

“We could see it go supernova anywhere from tomorrow to 500,000 years from now,” said Grant Hill, an astronomer at the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii. “For all intents and purposes, the gamma-ray burst and optical photons from the supernova would arrive simultaneously.”

The question of whether a GRB from WR 104 — which lies in the direction of our Milky Way’s galactic center — would actually cross earth’s path has been the subject of debate for years now. But Grant says that given the continuing uncertainty about the star’s alignment with our own, such a scenario can’t be ruled out.

But if such a GRB did hit earth’s atmosphere, says Adrian Melott, a physicist at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, it would likely cause a 50 percent increase in solar UVB radiation which would not only disrupt photosynthesis among marine and freshwater plankton, but also likely precipitate some sort of broader extinction event.

“You would first notice a 10-second blue flash in the upper atmosphere,” said Melott, “but then the damage would be done.”

WR 104, was discovered eight years ago in the constellation Sagittarius.

Sagittarius Constellation

WR104 is in Sagittarius Constellation did our Rishis try to tell us that there is going to be a huge supernova explosion coming from Sagittarius Constellation and the gamma-ray burst is going to come straight towards Earth?

Were our Rishis teaching us Astronomy and for that they created a story?

There are many possibilities and most of the things that we still don’t know. It’s a long journey and a lot to learn.
