This is a subject I've never discussed before on my blog. It touches on ancient astronaut theories and also ancient atomic warfare. It's something that I always found incredibly interesting. I've felt like posting about it although this topic is controversial and fringe belief, that everyone laughs at.
I have many interests including helping Chernobyl's children, of which I'm a member of a charity, and studying wildlife at Chernobyl as well as Fukushima. As you may be aware, I'm a heathen and pagan.
As we all know there are monsters of gigantic proportions throughout ancient myths and legends. Let's focus on Sleipnir, the eight legged horse ridden by Odin. Sleipnir, of Norse mythology, was an offspring of the unusual Loki character. The name Sleipnir means "slippery". Ancient stones feature carvings of eight legged horses.
Many scholars believe the eight legged horse is symbolic of the shamanic journey. Eight legged horses appear in Norse as well as Hindu myths. In India is the eight legged Bagri Maro horse associated with death and funerals. These eight legged horses carry souls of the dead to the afterlife. It's suggested also that the horse with eight legs is both the physical horse and it's spirit horse, and even astral with earth. Body and shadow. Perhaps it's a pair of horses, but maybe some other possible theory I've come up with.
Since the disasters at nuclear facilities at Chernobyl and Fukushima, it caused mutations among plants and animals. Many animals, people and plants were deformed in the exclusion zone of Chernobyl. Animals with missing limbs or multi limbs were born. While deformities occur elsewhere amongst all creatures, and have always happened, could this be an after effect of an ancient radioactive fallout? Or is it just a mistake in the genes?

While some take on the myths literally, I wonder if there's some element of historic truth or forgotten event. I wonder if the eight legged horse(s) could've been severe mutant beasts born from an irradiated event of sophisticated war. As the eight legged horse is common in Norse and Hindu myths, stretching out that far, where so-called ancient atomic war took place. A quote from The Mahabharata (6500 BCE).
"A single projectile with all the power in the universe... An irridescent column of smoke and flame as bright as a thousand suns, rose in all its splendour, a perpendicular explosion with its billowing smoke clouds... rising after its first explosion formed into expanding round circles like the opening of giant parasols. It was an unknown weapon, an iron thunderbolt, a gigantic messenger of death which reduced to ashes an entire race of the Vrishnis and Andhakas." "The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognisable. Their hair and nails fell out, pottery broke without any apparant cause, and the birds turned white." "After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected. To escape from this fire, the soldiers threw themselves into streams to wash themselves."
The places of Rajasthanin India, and Harappa and Mohenjo daru in Pakistan are sites with evidence of ancient atomic disasters. For now I'll leave it with you. I intend to do more about this subject in the near future.
