 ==== ====From Somervell’s abridgement of Toynbee’s “A Study Of History”, volumes 7-10 page 236: “An airof failure or, where there is not positive failure, futility surrounds practically all the examples ofArchaism that we have that we have been examinin, and the reason is not far to seek [should be“to be sought”]. The archaist is condemned, by the very nature of his enterprise, to be for evertryin to reconcile past and present…. If he tries to restore the past without takin the present intoconsideration, then the impetus of life ever movin onward will shatter his brittle construction intofragments. If on the other hand, he consents to subordinate his whim of resuscitatin the past tothe task of makin the present workable, his Archaism will prove a sham. Greetins, o Child ofWotan!

While impressive in their own terrestrial right, they are hardlythe stuff of which extraterrestrial influences on our home planet are made. Ditto that for most of themegalithic structures like Stonehenge or massive building works like the Egyptian orMesoamerican pyramids. Terrestrially impressive as representing massive undertakings involvinglots of hard labour over long periods of time - yes. As extraterrestrial structures they leave a bit tobe desired. You tend to think of alien stuff as a lot more futuristic looking - polished metals, weirddesigns, next generation computers, lots of flashing lights and unexplainable gizmos. If ET buildsa building on Earth you'd hope for something more imaginative than a pyramid built with blocks ofstone. What else is there to consider? Well, machines that fly seem to be futuristic gizmos that werebeyond the capabilities of the ancients to build and operate. We have those vimanas (flying machines in Hindu mythology) and the 'Wheel of Ezekiel' (inBiblical mythology) and those Pre-Columbian little gold model 'aeroplanes' from Central and SouthAmerica, not to forget to mention those ancient Egyptian wooden 'birds', so-called, and pigeon-holed as such, yet 'birds' aerodynamically perfect as rigid fixed-wing models that could really flywhen scaled-up. While these and more have occupied much attention from ancient astronauttheorists, more traditional 'chariots' from much better known mythologies haven't really capturedtheir attention despite that title of Erich von Daniken's best selling book. Alas, Erich didn't providean index entry for "chariots" in that tome of his, so maybe not even he was willing to put moneywhere his mouth was when it came to just plain every old day aerial 'chariots'. There's nothing overly high-tech about a chariot, apart from those cultures like those of theAmericas (North, Central and South) for example that never invented the wheel or cultures whohadn't domesticated a horse to pull one. I guess to the Incas a horse-drawn land chariot of the
 
ancient Egyptians might have seemed high-tech indeed. But to the ancient Europeans, especially southern Europeans like the Greeks, Romans, and othercultures in the Mediterranean and nearby regions like Mesopotamia, and of course the Egyptians,even unto India and China, chariots were part and parcel of their transport and means of wagingwar. But chariots that fly, aerial 'chariots', are a whole new ballgame, yet those ancient cultures andmore had aerial 'chariots', often described as 'fiery', contained within their mythologies. Of coursethese winged 'chariots' weren't meant as a public transport network for the great unwashed (like asubway or bus system), rather as limousines reserved for the gods, goddesses and just plaindeities in general. Are they fact or fiction? There's no shortage of 'gods' who make use of aerial transport in the form of 'chariots'. They tendto read like a who's who of deities in mythology. They can be sky gods like Zeus; Thor (of theNorse) is obviously another; Apollo (Greece) ditto that; the Greek Moon goddess Selene (Luna ifyou're Roman) is another as is the Greek goddess of the dawn Eos (the Roman's Aurora). Mostmythological Sun gods are associated with aerial chariots like the Nordic god Sol and the Hindugod Surya, or a solar barge (or boat) as in ancient Egypt. Now you might think it obvious that chariots (or a boat) would be associated with a Sun god or aMoon goddess (or a sky deity in general). Something has got to pull those celestial orbs along(recall this was way before Newton and that falling apple that came down with gravity). But, do yousee a chariot (or a boat) associated or in proximity with the Sun and the Moon? You don't? Wellthe ancients had eyesight equal to us moderns, so no doubt they didn't see any chariotsassociated with the Moon or Sun, any more than you do. So there has to be another explanationfor those 'chariots'. Perhaps one needs to separate the god or goddess or deity from what theyrepresent. Selene may be the goddess of the Moon, but she is not actually the Moon and it's her'chariot' not the Moon's 'chariot' that is an issue here. Translated, the Moon doesn't need transport;the goddess does. Now following the Greek god's War of the Titans, Zeus divided up the cosmos among his clan bytheir drawing of lots for the various portfolios and spoils of war that go to the victors. The GreekSun god Helios, though well respected by Zeus, missed out on the spoils being fully occupied atthe time with solar duties. However, Helios did take a 'shine' to a new piece of real estate thatpopped up in the Aegean Sea, so Zeus gave him title to that. It was called Rhodes and the localslater erected a statue of Helios in his honour - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World -the famed 'Colossus of Rhodes'. Now mortals do not go to that sort of time and trouble, expendvast amounts of money and energy, on constructing gigantic statues of and to imaginary beings.There's no benefit of doing so, either personally or for the community. Conclusion: Helios was real. Now Helios, like nearly the entire ancient Greek pantheon of deities, had his share of offspring.Helios had various offspring-producing lovers like Rhode (the nymph of his island) and Clytie(another nymph) as well as his wife Perse (or Perseis), an Oceanid. [Talk about girls having areally hot time in bed - it doesn't get any hotter than with the Sun god!] Among his kids were Circe(a sorceress) and Pasiphae, Queen of Crete, who had herself an affair with a bull (but that'sanother story). Helios also had a fling with the Oceanid Clymene, resulting in a son Phaeton;setting the stage for the tragedy to follow.
 
 Now after that little interlude, let's return back to those 'chariots'. There's one 'chariots' case historythat really stands out and that's the story of that Greek Sun god Helios, and especially the story ofHelios and his son Phaeton. Now daddy very unwisely grants his son a wish. That wish is to drivethe family car without benefit of a driver's license or even any driving lessons. Now the family caris of course an aerial 'chariot'. The end result was that the son suffered a bit of a prang - well that'sactually quite the understatement. Let's just say modern Greeks even today could be findingpieces of the wreckage. Shades of Roswell! In fact, this might be the ancient Greek orMediterranean version of Roswell! Being a bit of a typical teenage hoon with a yen for fast 'chariots' (some things are probablyuniversal even across extraterrestrial societies), Phaeton put the pedal to the metal, doingburnouts in the sky, and of course he lost control. Passing too close to ground level, the out ofcontrol 'chariot' scorched fertile plains, burned mountains and forests, turned lands into deserts,destroyed towns while burning the locals to a brownish crisp. No wonder Helios's 'chariot' wasthought to be the personification of the Sun! With the fate of the Earth at stake, a rather pissed-off Zeus brought this unhappy state of affairs toa quick conclusion by blasting the 'chariot', Phaeton and all, out of the sky via one of his famousthunderbolts. The 'chariot', trailing fire like a shooting star, fell from the heavens. The 'chariot'crashed and Phaeton's dead body ended up in the River Eridanus. Good riddance to bad rubbishZeus and no doubt the rest of ancient Greek society probably concluded. It doesn't seem to berecorded what Helios thought - probably a silent "I told you so". And that's the story of the ancientGreek version of what I conclude as their Roswell. In a further conclusion, the ancients could only label unknown exotic flying machines (UFOs) bywhat they were familiar with - like boats and chariots. In that sense I guess they, those aerial'chariots' weren't really UFOs since they had been identified, albeit incorrectly, in familiar terms. Science librarian; retired.  Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=John_Prytz  ==== ====From Somervell’s abridgement of Toynbee’s “A Study Of History”, volumes 7-10 page 236: “An air
