"ALL THIS HAPPENED AT LEAST 1,400,000 YEARS EARLIER>>>read on..
"The first thought that must immediately cross our mind when we are thinking of Matsya Avatar is that the entire earth had been engulfed by water. The sea water had risen significantly, destroying and wiping out the entire animal life and humans. Of course there were few ships, which had sailed from various places all over the world, to save what little human life could be saved. According to the Hindu belief of cyclic evolution, this happened towards the end of Kalyug. The end of the Kalyug brings in the dawn of new Kalp (Mahayug) which starts from Satyug.
"Slowly the churning of the water which we know as wave movement also stopped. Without knowing, the survivors in different ships were witnessing a rare phenomenon. They were towards the end of the Kalp and were entering the transitional phase required to carry them into the next Kalp. These survivors were ignorant of the fact that it was NOT a temporary phase, which will be over in a short time, but a long transitional journey to the next Kalp.
"What exactly will be the duration of this transitional phase can be visualized by us but not by people on board. They and their several hundred, or perhaps thousands, of generation would be fighting a very tough, long battle for survival. Let us visualize:
"1. The sea water had risen significantly, and a rare astronomical phenomenon occurred, unknown and unobserved by them. The lunar nodes, i.e. Rahu and Ketu are no longer moving in their retrograde motion, which means that moon has stopped changing the orbit, with reference to the apparent path of the Sun. This has resulted in cession of wave movement. The so called churning of sea water has stopped. Rahu and Ketu are dead. Another demon(or in scientific language, a set of astronomical points) will step in to replace the dead Rahu and Ketu during Kurma Avatar of lord Vishnu in the next Kalp. The wave movement will then once again start. But that is going to happen in the next Kalp, which was least 250,000 years away from the start of the transitional phase."
What is the reason that moon’s axis of rotation stops its regular drift towards the end of Kalyug, remains stationary for a period of about 7,50,000 according to Surya Siddhant, and then restarts towards the beginning of next Mahayug, is for experts of astronomy to comment. Some say 7, 50, 000 is a bit too long a period. Ok, till it is reconciled with the present day science, let it be one-third or 2, 50,000 years. The result would be the same. But time has come for research to start in right earnest, on all information from ancient texts.
