When the prophet Moses, the leader of the Israelite tribes, called by God to lead the Israelite out of Yahweh Pharaoh’s bondage, performed the commandment of Almighty Allah, that in the course of this severe and long journey, he repeatedly sought advice and assistance to the Almighty.
Once again God’s help needed the Jews when they were endless desert without food altogether.
How and what kind of food the Lord has sent to those who suffer, and how they are prepared and consumed it, clearly and eloquently tells the Bible.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven; and the people shall go out and gather daily, as needed for the day …
… The morning the dew lay round about the camp; dew had gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness something small round thing, small as the frost on the ground.
And we saw the children of Israel and say to each other: what is it? For they knew not what it was. And Moses said to them: This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat.
This is what the Lord commanded, Gather of it each in as much as he could eat; to take ye every (about 2.4 liters. – Comm. ed.) per person, the number of souls as one in the tent. And they gathered it every morning, every much as he could eat … (Bible, Exodus, Chapter XVI, 4,13-16).
People went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it; the taste of it was like the taste of fresh oil
In the mid-1970s, the answer to this question is decided to find George Sassoon and Rodney Dale, British scientists from Cambridge. During their search, they have carefully analyzed a number of ancient manuscript sources, including the Bible and one of the main Kabbalistic books XIII century – Sefer ha-Zohar, after which they had the following hypothesis.
Manna, which fed the children of Israel, have evolved an elaborate and quite perfect, even by modern standards, the machine.
Of course, no one could build a machine on Earth 3500 years ago, in those days, when there was the Jews’ exodus from Egypt. But such a unit could be carried on board an alien spacecraft, providing the crew with food and oxygen.
If you carefully read the passage in the Bible, which describes the history of the emergence manna from heaven, and if we assume that this story really happened – and agrees with most modern scholars – then it becomes obvious that the feed stock for manna could not be any fruit tamarisk ( considered as one time), nor any other plant. To ensure that all members of the six hundred itinerant families every morning could regularly receive your diet, it was necessary to produce about two tons per day of manna. This quantity of food for the entire time wandering Jews (about forty years!) Could produce only very smoothly perfect and reliable installation, with high performance. At the same time, as the texts of Sefer ha-Zohar and the Bible, it also dosed this product so that on Friday’s portion attributable to each family increased twice since, according to the canons of Judaism, any productive activity on Saturday categorically prohibited. Here’s how they say it in the Bible:
And Moses said, six days you shall gather it; but the seventh day – Saturday; would not have it that day.
See, the Lord has given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days: abide ye every man himself, no man go out of his place on the seventh day (Exodus, Chapter XVI, 25-26, 29).
The machine itself, which Sassoon and Dale identified with the Ark of the Covenant was placed in the tabernacle, or tabernacle. And during the transition, and parked the tabernacle has always been far removed from the people. Access to the car had only the priests, that is, those who were familiar with the device and the principle of its action. All other approach, and the more touching the Ark of the Covenant threatened to illness and even death, which has been repeatedly mentioned in the Bible.
Sassoon and Dale believe that the machine was handed to Moses during an episode known as the vision on Mount Sinai:
Mount Sinaiwas covered with smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire; and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. And the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder. Moses spoke, and God answered him by a voice (Exodus, Chapter XIX, 18-19).
Scientists see this episode description touchdown (or start) a space rocket and their assumption seems quite plausible.
As one of the arguments in favor of the hypothesis of its authors cite the following story. After the Second World War, when American soldiers flew home to one of the islands ofNew Guinea, its inhabitants built of straw likeness aircraft. The natives prayed him, in the hope that the Americans have left a good memory will return to them again. These items have become straw islander’s objects of worship and ritual ceremonies peculiar.
Roughly the same pattern, consider Sassoon and Dale, and the events developed in the Sinai desert. Machine left on Earth representatives of a highly extraterrestrial community also became the subject of a religious cult, which originated on the basis of certain liturgical rite common to both the religion of Moses, and Christianity.
According to scientists from Cambridge, the starting material for the production of manna was a kind of green alga Chlorella type, which under the influence of light is able to reproduce very rapidly: 24 hours under favorable conditions, its mass increases eight times.
Supplementation in the form of the corresponding enzymes and mineral salts could turn the final product into something … round thing, small as the frost on the ground … and its taste was like wafers made with honey (Exodus, Chapter XVI, 14, 31).
It is known that at the dawn of the space age research the possibility of using chlorella for food in long space flights and carried out in our country. This research program was codenamed BIOS 3.
To understand all the nuances of the content and meaning of the book Sefer ha-Zohar, Sassoon and Dale had to learn two languages: Aramaic – that the book is written on it – and Hebrew.
Description of the machine, drawn by scientists on the basis of information gleaned from this book, it looks very plausible.
Arranged in such a machine was probably as follows. Its upper part is a cylindrical bioreactor or fermenter, which was chlorella and its multiplication occurred. Inside the bioreactor, which housed the source of light and heat, the feed solution of mineral salts, water and air enriched with carbon dioxide. Located around the bottom of the bioreactor vessel ovoid solutions containing enzymes and mineral salts, and outside whole was surrounded by a condenser so as to obtain the necessary amount of water from atmospheric moisture. Autoclave in which chlorella turned into a finished product – the manna, located at the bottom of the machine. From the autoclave manna came in two spherical collection where famished strangers and give strictly metered portions. On the opposite side of the collections was a small nuclear reactor, served as a source of energy, there was located a block and a manipulator control system, carrying out the programmed routine maintenance of a nuclear reactor.
In favor of the arguments cited by researchers from Cambridge, evidenced by the fact that an article about the first results of their research origin manna published in 1977 the British journal Science – publication of a very serious and authoritative scientific circles around the world.
