The unique feature of Taoism and Hinduism, among the world religions is that it derives not from a single great founder but from the "impersonal" experience of enlightened beings of men and women alike.
The start of the materialistic ages according to Hindu scriptural reckoning was 3102 BC. That year was the beginning of the last descending "dwapara yoga" of the equinoctial cycle and also the start of the "kali yoga" of the universal cycle. Most anthropologists believe that 10,000 years ago humanity was living in a barbarous "stone age" and summarily dismiss as "myths" the widespread traditions of very ancient civilizations in lemuria Atlantis, India, China, Japan, Egypt, Mexico and many other lands.
"Spiritual evolution should be the true occupation of mankind."
Many ancient civilizations had people who could predict or foresee the future. They left paintings and carvings of men with space helmets and flying machines. These were not UFOs at that time but were the things they "saw" that mankind would get involved in as the human race became more materialistic.
Many ancient people were enlightened and one with God, i.e., in a condition of at-one-ment. It was expressed in the Old Testament, as He was with God and walked with God. But now it is misinterpreted as walked in the ways or laws or regulations of God, which is incorrect. Such enlightened men were Enoch, Noah, Moses and many others.
