The following is a very interesting excerpt from what I think is a worthy
interview to absorb:

and the Realty of Ancient Flying Machines

A brief synopsis:
Daily Bell: We believe the West is afflicted by money power – a group of wealthy families that want to
centralize control over the world and are causing misery. How does your philosophy account for this?
Jeffrey Armstrong: The philosophy of India is very clear. We human beings are here with the ability to
utilize our free will and the spectrum is anywhere from enlightened to 'endarkened.' The enlightened end
of the spectrum is where the laws of Nature reside, and is called the Deva view. The 'endarkened' view
is the philosophy of the so-called Asuras, who are always against the enlightened way of being. We humans
can choose to cooperate for the good of all and align ourselves with the Devic view or we can choose to
be entirely selfish and only concerned for the personal gain and pleasure of a few. The dark Asuric choice
brings fear, destruction, chaos, exploitation and is always imposed by a small uncaring minority, enslaving
the masses and farming them like animals to steal their life energy. All the Vedic stories show this human
potential for abuse of free will and the problems it can create.
The Indian epics are rife with classic conflicts involving those who care only for themselves, subvert the laws
of nature, create artificial inorganic societies, cannibalize other living entities and make a few people very
wealthy and powerful at the expense of large numbers of innocent people.
