Mirage—the emergence of Elysium World
Scientists, especially meteorologists and opticists, may sniff at my conception of mirage as the emergence of Elysium World, criticizing me for not having the least knowledge of the refraction and total reflection of light.
Indeed I know very little about optics and meteorology, and I dare not to show off what I know in this aspect so that I won’t leave an impression of displaying my scarce skill before an expert.
Since I have my own definite understanding of the origin of the universe, the origin of life, the origin of man, and the 36-dimension space, I also have my own explanation for mirage, for which I hope to obtain the further analysis of experts in different perspectives.
What is mirage?
Mirage is the revelation of celestial being and Buddha to mankind. It is the appearance of the scenes of the Elysium World in 36-dimension space in human world. That is, mirage is the real situation that exists in Elysium World.
Some describe mirage as entirely imaginary, changeable and unpredictable, real yet illusory, and fairyland-like. The description is really to the point, and “fairyland-like” in particular has delineated the real situation of mirage. Strictly speaking, mirage is fairyland, and the “Elysium World of the West” preached by Buddhism is such a fairyland.
When fortunate people see endless ranges of mountains, borderless ocean, towering pavilions, pagodas, and towers, the appearing and disappearing cities and forts, serene landscapes from the seaside, the desert, the Gobi desert, or the lake, they will certainly have an inexpressible feeing for the beautiful heavenly visions. What are they? Where do they come from? Are they the paradise or the human world?
According to scientists, mirage is an optical phenomenon of the atmosphere. It is the result of the refraction and total reflection of light in the atmospheres of different densities. More accurately, after being illuminated by light the natural scenery on earth will be reflected into the atmosphere. As a result of the dramatic temperature changes in the desert or the ocean, the local air will form different densities. When the light reflected by an object enters the high-density air from the low-density air, the scenery on the earth will be projected in the air, just like the refraction of a chopstick in a bowl of water. Thus mirage is formed.
This explanation seems reasonable. But let me propose the following details and see what we can find.
All explanations point out that mirage results from the refraction or total reflection of the distant views. I want to ask where the distance is. How far away should the distance be?
There are records for many visions appearing in the sky. Have scientists found the similar sceneries in the distance that correspond to the mirage?
After the refraction, is the image positive image or an inverted image? If the reflection is an inverted image, why the image in the sky is positive image? If the reflection is an erect image after refraction, why is some mirage upside down?
Does the reflected light enter from the thinner medium into the dense medium or from the dense medium into the thinner medium? That is to say, is the light refracted from the sky downward or from the earth upward? If the objects on earth refract the light upward, the direction of the refraction can only be from the lower position to the higher position. Why does the refraction also occur in the upper-to-lower direction? Of course it can be said that after N times of refraction by the atmosphere the light can also be reflected from the upper to the lower position. This is only theoretically possible but practically unfeasible. If feasible, we may see mirages every day.
Some experts say that when exposed to the burning sun the sand in the desert will rise quickly in temperature because of its low specific heat. The lower air close to the sand will have a very high temperature, while the temperature of the upper air still remains very low, and thus the abnormal distribution of air temperature is formed. Since objects expand with heat and contract with cold, the lower hot air close to the sand has a very low density, while the upper cold air has a great density. As a result the refractive index of the air is small in the lower air and large in the upper air. If the light reflected by the higher object in the distance is continuously being refracted when entering the thinner lower air from the denser upper air, the angle of incidence will gradually increase until the appearance of total reflection when it reaches the critical angle.
This theoretical analysis seems tenable. My question is, if this theory tallies with the actual situation, then mirages will be frequently seen in the air above the desert, but why is it that in the air above the desert people cannot see a mirage for many decades? Do these deserts not fall within the scope of your theories?
Of course experts may argue that the desert should have special geographical and climatic environments for the happening of mirages. Without such conditions no mirage will occur even in the air above the desert.
Then my question is, what special conditions are necessary for the occurrence of mirages over the sky in the desert? And which desert on earth does not possess such special conditions?
Experts’ explanation for mirages happening over the sea goes like this: In summer, on the calm water surface the upper layer of air is very hot and has a small density because of its exposure to the sunlight, while the air close to the water has a lower temperature and greater density as a result of the influence of the water current. When the lower air and upper air has great differences in temperature and when the density is small in the upper air and great in the lower air, the mirage will happen when light reflected by the islands, towns, and ships in the surrounding horizons goes through upper-lower refraction or total reflection.
Yes, if in summer it is easy to form a thinner upper air and a dense lower air in the air over the sea, then how about autumn and winter? Why did mirage still happen over Penglai Peninsula on December 16, 2002, when the area of Shangdong Province was already in the season of winter?
Suppose the experts are right in their theory, then in summer all the upper air over the sea will be thinner and all the lower air over the sea will be denser, but why have mirages not appeared in the sky over the so many other stretches of seas?
In recent years mirages frequently appear in the sky over Shandong’s Penglai Peninsular. According to experts this is the result of “improvement and cleaning” of environment in recent years. Now Penglai has fresh air and clean environment, so mirages frequently occur there.
This must be politicians’ statement, not the conclusion of experts. If experts have come to such a conclusion, then please answer my question: Why did not mirages always occur in Penglai Peninsula before the age of industrial revolution on earth, during which period the air was even fresher and better in quality than it is today? Why did mirages occur only once every few years? What is the air of America’s Hawaii like if compared with that of Penglai? Then why don’t mirages always occur there?
Experts may reinforce their theory by saying, “The special natural environment of Penglai is the major reason attributable to the occurrence of mirages. There is no such environment in other places, so mirages are unlikely to appear.”
Suppose this explanation is correct, then please answer my question: if Penglai Peninsula has very special natural conditions, the visions of all the mirages should be basically the same images, but why is the image of each mirage different from the others? Is it possible that the natural environment of Penglai is changing every year?
As we have known about the refraction of light, the light will keep its direction and speed of diffusion when traversing the medium with an even density. When the light slants through two media with different densities, it will go through changes of speed and deflections of directions at the contact area or interface of the two media.
This theory is correct, but is not acceptable when it is used to explain the occurrence of mirages. In terms of aerosphere, there is difference of densities not only between troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, ionosphere, and exosphere, but also in the same aerosphere. In this case, refraction of light will certainly occur when the sun shines its light upon the earth. That is, just like the moon we see in the water, we can also see many illusory suns in the aerosphere. But why can’t we see them? The densities of the air are different not only during the day but also at night. When the bright moon is high in the sky we can see the reflected moon in the water, but why can’t we see the illusory reflections of the moon refracted in the different densities of the air?
My explanation for mirage is that mirage is not the refracted image of scenery on the ground but a contortion of time and space of the Elysium World, which has been purposefully arranged by the Greatest Creator to demonstrate to mankind: “Your sky is not an illusion, but another time and space, and another world. You mankind has a great future.”
When introducing the 36-dimension Elysium World, I have made it clear that the thousand-year world and ten-thousand-year world are at very distant places, but the Elysium World is close at hand. The entire earth and universe is the Elysium World. Namely, the earth, the solar system, the Milky Way Galaxy, the the Rotary-River Galaxy and Law-Rotary Galaxy all belong to the Elysium World. All that we see are just illusory images—mirages, short-lived prosperity, flowers, grass, and trees, insects, birds and beasts, rivers, lakes, and seas, celestial bodies and the universe, and even human life. What place is not illusory? The answer: The Elysium World. “Emptiness is not emptiness and color is not color”. The smaller the energy, the more definite the form; the greater the energy, the less definite the form. Hence, “Great form has no contour”.
Why can’t we see the Elysium World? It is because our eyes do not have the needed structure. Can we see ultraviolet and infrared? Can we see electromagnetic waves and biological waves? Can we see Gama rays and beta rays? We are in a wonderful world (the Elysium World), and we have seen less than 3% of the surrounding world. Why can’t we see everything in the world? It is because our “merits and virtues” have not yet reached that standard. Just like somebody’s question, “Why can’t we live in the White House, Kremlin, and Zhongnanhai?” Why? Try to find the answer by yourself.
I have some information here, which may help us to know about time and space.
“On January 28, 1915, a Turkish army was marching toward Position No. 60 in Gallipoli. When they had ascended the hill, several masses of clouds descended vertically to hang over the whole hill. Metal-like rays of light seemed to have shot out from among the clouds. Then was the time of magic. The gallant troops in high spirit strode into the clouds and disappeared one by one. A soldier named Richard who fell behind the ranks was terrified to see such a frightening scene. He yelled at them, trying desperately to stop the march of his comrades. However, it seemed that they turned a deaf ear to him and entered the clouds as if were spellbound. After a moment, the masses of clouds ascended slowly and vertically and drifted away into the distance. The hill still remained, but the whole corps lost their traces.
They have vanished into thin air. Where have they gone?
They have entered the mirage.
In 1994, an Italian airliner suddenly vanished from the radar screen of the control room when it flied over African coast. A short time later, it reappeared on the screen. When the plane landed on the airport, the man on duty asked the pilot what had happened during the flight. Why it failed to be tracked? The airscrew felt at a loss, because their flight had been smooth and no accident or trouble had occurred. Later someone accidentally discovered that his watch was 20 minutes slower. The investigation revealed that the watches of all the crew and 315 passengers were all 20 minutes slower.
What has happened? Where have they been in the 20 minutes? Why were they not aware of what had happened? Why can’t the screen display what has happened?
As I have discussed in “Time and Space of the Universe”, time can be divided into transverse time and longitudinal time. Longitudinal time is the time of the material world and transverse time is the time of nonmaterial world. We humans live in the longitudinal time, which resembles the X axis of the complex function. The transverse time is like the Z axis of the complex function. When a person or object vanishes from the longitudinal time, it has entered the transverse time and space. Whenever he (it) comes back, he will still return to the original point of time. But for us, maybe a year, a decade or several hundred years have passed.
The Italian airliner has vanished for 20 minutes because they have entered the transverse time and space. For the plane and people aboard, it may be a wink of the eye, so they could not realize that they have once disappeared, but for the person in the control room of the airport, it has been twenty minutes.
What is the transverse time and space? Mirage is the transverse time and space.
During my childhood, my grandma told me a story: A woodman got lost one day when he was collecting firewood in the mountain. Having sauntered in the mountain for a long time, he suddenly discovered two old men completely immersed in a chess game on a beautiful slope. He did not intend to disturb them, but squatted beside them and watched them play. All was so auspicious and natural. The only thing puzzling him is that the leaves close by were endlessly changing their colors—yellow for one moment but green for the next. After a long spell, when he returned his gazes from the distance to what is near him, the two old men had vanished from his sight. He trembled with fear, and suddenly realized that this was a familiar place where he had been collecting firewood many times. Once aware of his place, he walked home along the familiar path.
When he approached the village, he found that great changes had taken place in his village. Doubting whether this was his own village, he headed for his home along the path in his memory. But on his way every one he met just gazed at him like a stranger. He could not recognize any of them either. Suspecting that he might have come to the wrong village, he inquired about his original village from people he met. All echoed that this was the village that he asked about. He asked whether they knew such and such a person. They answered who was whose grandpa and who was whose grandma and that all of them had passed away. When he asked about himself, he was told that he was whose grandpa and had never come back from his trip to the mountain to gather firewood when he was young.
Now let’s analyze why the woodman got lost when he was gathering firewood in the mountain he was familiar with. The reason was that he had suddenly entered the mirage, which had a different environment from his former one. Thus he would certainly get lost. Why did he suddenly realize where he was after a cold shiver? This was because the mirage had disappeared and he was again standing on the familiar place. Some he suddenly awakened to his world. Now that he had the luck to enter the mirage (Elysium World), why did he not disappear together with the mirage? It was because his psychic energy had not measured up to the standard for living entirely in the Elysium World. Then why was he permitted to witness the scenes in the Elysium World? It was because he had suck a luck. The two old men playing chess must have been his relative or friends, who had come to reveal to him that although he was not presently entitled to live in the Elysium World, the Elysium World actually existed and that he could realize the existence and laid foundation for his future entrance into the Elysium World.
This is the story about time and space. The woodman has entered another domain of time and space. When he returned from the transverse time, he was still his old self, but the longitudinal time of the human world had passed hundreds of years.
Thus, mirage is only a revelation of the Elysium World. People who have seen the mirage has had the luck to witness the scenes of the Elysium World although they have not entered its domain.
The mirage will appear not only in the sky but also on the ground. The two old men’s chess playing was a mirage unfolding on the ground. Even if there were many people in the mountain at that time, no one except the woodman could see the mirage, just like the phantasms appearing in the head of a person who has taken heroin. He has truly seen the scenes although others claim to have seen nothing.
People who saw the mirage are lucky. If we can understand from the mirage that there are different visions in different time and spaces, we can open up our thinking and realize that our human world is only a material world in the time and space of the universe and that there are many more beautiful worlds apart from this material world. Then why don’t we set off for the more beautiful world.
The Greatest Creator has not treated us only as a batch of animals. He has revealed to people with greater telegnosis another serene and glorious road of life. God Jesus and Buddha Sakyamuni are not fooling us. All tricksters have only personal interest in mind, but are Jesus and Sakyamuni pursuing personal gains? They have abandoned all their worldly belongings, so why should they deceive us? You can cheat the wealthy people for their money and fool those in power to get certain advantage. But what good is there to cheat us– who have nothing at all?
