A Cosmological Journey - How modern scientific data is taking us back to the wisdom of the ancients (cont.)

Nothing new under the black hole sun
It has been a difficult journey at times requiring me to leave behind the familiar life of a medical doctor and step into uncharted territory. The discovery of similar theories from groups around the world have just reiterated that we are in the middle of a massive scientific revolution. In fact many scientists even a hundred years ago were formulating similar theories, but did not have the astrophysics data that we have acquired in the last few decades to express them in this way.
Going even further back, we realise that the concept that the centre of galaxies are a creative force in the universe has been described by many earlier cultures. The Maya described the centre of the galaxy as the Great Mother or Cosmic Womb. The Gnostics had a creation myth possibly inherited from earlier cultures, that describes the fall of a goddess from the centre of a galaxy, swirling around and falling through some sort of cosmic boundary before creating our world. And maybe this knowledge has something to do with spirals appearing in ancient art such as at New Grange in Ireland.
I get a sense that the time for this theory has come and that we are simply rediscovering what we used to know. Maybe we had to move away from this ancient knowledge in the cycles of time so we can rediscover it now with the benefit of our current technologies which bring us right back to what our ancestors knew — that everything is a spiral of living breathing creative light from infinity occurring at every level and at the heart of every spiral is the same infinite oneness that connects every structure in the universe from the very large to the very small.
