Starkadr caused his praedecessor to stand on (VA, p. 422) a tree-stump, just as tree-stump is a guise of Inktomi the spider-god = spider-gods (ER&E 5:317b) Kala-khan~ja-s, or Kala-keya-s, whose sea was quaffed up by (M 105) Agastya.}



"The myth of a frog that drank all the waters is found among ... Algonkins, Australian ... and Andaman Islanders." {This is the frog (possibly, according to HM, p. 101, a substitute for the fish of the Taittiriya Samhita; but surely not for Vr.tra) who, according to the Maha-bharata, betrayed (HM, p. 102; consequently whose tongue, viz., voice was thus affected) the hiding-place of Agni; "dense water" (tritium) is consumed as source of energy for the stars, according to the S`iva Puran.a – [Norse] To`rr & [Cymry] Sugyn likewise quaffed up all the sea.} {frogs may eat small fishes; therefore "fisher lad" is (PS) Pelagon = Parjanya (*Paljanya) to whom are sacrificed (S`YV 24:21 – TWhYV, p. 220) frogs}

"Seven were its enclosures (Paridhi), three times seven were made firelogs (Samidha)." (R.c Veda 10:90:15) {related to the 21 times that the ks.atriya varn.a was exterminated according to the Puran.a?} {might the "firelogs" have a relation to the primaeval vibrating wooden rod of Yaki (in Sonora) cosmology, and to the primaeval hollow tree emitting a humming sound of Papuan cosmologies? -- and might the three have a relation to the 3 possible tones of Yoruba (and other West African languages) vowels?}

here is an alternative explanation of Vis.n.u (& of Makha)

his is (according to R.c Veda 1:155:6 – VM, p. 38) a wheel of 4 "names" * 90 --

cf. 4 phases of alternating-current cycle, each phase of 90 degrees

those 90 being horses.

cf. "horsepower"?

according to AB 1:30 (OST, p. 129), "Vis.n.u is the door-keeper of the gods"

cf. a shunt on an electronic circuit

by means of emmets gnawing into the tense bowstring, the head of Vis.n.u became (according to S`B 14:1 – HIPh, vol. 2, p. 536) the sun.

Vis`va-karman took "the head of a horse, brought it before the Devas and fixed it on the headless body of Vis.n.u." (DBhP 1:5:106-112) Thus Vis.n.u became Haya-griva

on the sun there are sunspots, which rotate [similarly to a wheel] – caused by a force [tension]

in PB 7:5:6 (OST, vol. 4, p. 129), however, its is the head of Makha (rather than of Vis.n.u) which is transformed (in the pravargya), as likewise also in TA 5:1:1-7 (OST, vol. 4, p. 128), in which latter case this being the result of his (Makha’s) smiling concerning the emmets

the place of the valmika (‘emmet’) is the source of the rainbow (according to the MSV, p. 5) – likewise according to Australia lore, the rainbow-god inciteth "green" emmets (BC, pp. 378-382)

here is an alternative explanation of : "Directions are enclosed metres." & "Directions have properties of iron."

metres, as used in poe:tic diction, are encoding-devices

encoding-devices may be responsible for the "illusion" of physical structure

directionality may be defined by orientation of magnetic (and other) force-fields

directionality in the "illusion" of physical structure may be dependent on the relations among the same encodings

here is an alternative explanation of : "Speech has four quarters ... . Three of them are hidden".

the 3 hidden aspects of poe:tic diction may be : metre, accent (tone), and punctuation

these aspects may create akas`a (aither, space) as an "illusion"

here is an alternative explanation of : "three brilliant forms of Agni."

the "one who eats was placed where death is inevitable"

this may be the warmth of one’s living physical body

"the other two went in sibling spaces."

these may be one’s "sun" (one’s soul, at the solar plexus) and the luminiferous aura (around one’s body)

here are alternative explanations of some animals and of several deities

"Avi (sheep) particle is given this name, because this particle closely resembles field." (p. 118)

magnetic field-line

"As`va (horse) particle ... of the fast speed of horse." (p. 118)

cosmic ray

Trita (‘3rd’)

tritium (nucleus)

Gandharva (singer)


Ekata (‘1st’)

ordinary hydrogen (nucleus)

Dvita (‘2nd’)

deuterium (nucleus)

A-ja Eka-pad (‘uncreated one-foot’)

ground-state (lowest energy-state) [as in supercondustors]

gau (cow) having 1, 2, 4, 8, or 9 legs

quasiparticle having fractional charge

here is an alternative explanation of Varun.a (& of Mitra)

Varun.a’s net which catcheth people

gravitational field

"everything that is black belongs to Varun.a."

black = absence of electro-magnetic energy, but allowing gravitaion



Aryaman [in later literature described as god of the galaxy]

undiminishable minimal gravitational field (of quantum nature, but macroscopic)

here are an alternative explanations of Soma et al.

Soma as psychoactive drug

mental energy (psychic, not physical)

Dadhi-an~c, whose head rejoined his body

"walk-in" (capacity to enter the bodies of non-conscious persons during transvection)

2 As`vin-s as clothing

perispirit & aura



here is an alternative explanation of Indra

"Everyday Indra removed half the people".

half-life in radioactivity

here is an alternative explanation of Rohita

Varun.a is able

by means of Rohita

to gratify Harit-candra’s wish.

gravitation is able,

by means of a waterfall,

to rotate water-wheel.

Ajigartta [= Agartha, the underground system of tunnels] sought to immolate his own son, but that son was freed.

Coal, mined out from underground tunnels, may be sought to pollute the world with coal-dust, but alternative energy-sources will become available.

here is an alternative explanation of Sarama

[having been fed milk by the Pan.i-s,

Sarama later vomited that milk]

having been fed nuclear forces,

the pion later (upon separation from the nucleus) spontaneously loseth some of that force, thereby manifesting as a muon; then upon losing the residue of that force, becometh fully manifest in its original ground-state as an electron
