Now I am become Death (Shiva), the destroyer of worlds.
These were the words spoken by Robert Oppenheimer after completing the first successful atomic bomb tests. Seems like an odd thing for a scientist to say and rather Masonic in some way.

Some more tirivia;

Physicist Robert Oppenheimer, Supervising Scientist of the Manhattan Project on 16 July 1945 at 0529 HRS,in the Jornada del Muerto desert nearthe Trinity site in the White Sands Missile Range.... quoting from the Bhagavad-Gita upon witnessing the first atomic detonation by mankind.

The joint work of the scientists at Los Alamos resulted in the first nuclear explosion near Alamogordo on July 16, 1945, the site of which Oppenheimer named "Trinity".

Oppenheimer later recalled that while witnessing the explosion he thought of a verse from the Hindu holy book, the Bhagavad Gita:
“ If the radiance of a thousand suns were to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the mighty one "




Quote:“ We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.






On a completely unrelated note, the people at CERN, the home of the Hadron Colider, have a particular fondness for the Destroyer of Worlds also. Maybe it's a science thing.

Am I really stretching things to say that I can see 666 in the CERN logo?

Quote: In fierce aspects, he is often depicted slaying demons. The most recognizable iconographical attributes of the god are a third eye on his forehead, a snake around his neck, the crescent moon adorning and the river Ganga flowing from his matted hair, the trishula as his weapon and the damaru as his instrument.

With many, it is absolutely a science thing. They see themselves as gods.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

Not sure, he appears to me to be deeply moved by the event, and the power that he unleashed. I think he was kind of in shock, or awe, when they did the interview. Or possibly just on some good drugs.
