Yeti,The Himalayan Mirage
The great mountains of Himalayas have many mysteries surrounding them. The untouched mountains and its splendid beauty have attracted thousands of people. The Ranges cover modern-day Pakistan, India, Tibet, and Nepal. Its inhospitable terrain has attracted many mountaineers and adventure seekers. Few brave souls take the path less traveled to explore enormous mountain ranges. Sherpas who mainly serve as porters have made lower ranges of Himalayas as their home.
On many expeditions there are many mysterious sightings, most of them are of a creature called "Yeti."
Yeti is a "bipedal" creature who walks on two feet, said to reside in Himalayan ranges. Yeti has been in the folklore of Nepal for hundreds of years. Many mountaineers claimed to have spotted the creature. If inturn such a creature exists on it will change the entire understanding of human evolution.
A young scientist from India thinking of all the possibilities of how so many people can see the creature. Is it possible for an intelligent creature to exist naturally and yet remain hidden?
After systematic research, he convinces himself the creature cannot exist. The logic he gives is.
1) There cannot be one or two individuals of its kind roaming isolated in the forests. A sustainable population of individuals should exist if they have survived for numerous years.
2) Given the description, of their sizes (i.e. from 5–7 feet muscular body), for the sustainable population of individuals, it's difficult to stay hidden from modern technology, especially when there are frequent expeditions to uncover their mysteries.
3) Given that Yeti remains on snow-clad mountains of Himalayas, far away from human contact, where there is no sustainable food source for a big ape; does not match the biological theory
Then his suspicious mind makes him think, how do so many trekkers can allegedly see the hideous beast in the Himalayas?
Then the mind tells "They are lying or seeing the Himalayan brown bear and misinterpreting it as Yeti. Himalayan brown bear some times stand on two feet. So there is a distinct possibility it looks like human-ape when seen from distance."
"But so many dignified people, zoologists have reported seeing the creature, they also describe it to look like Gigantopithecus a prehistoric human that existed thousands of years ago. Can all be wrong or terrible liars? ".These thoughts gave him many sleepless nights.
The scientist who worked in the IT industry would always think about the logic of yeti sightings even at work. The curiosity gave him restlessness and some sleepless nights. Days passed but the curiosity remained.
Bird photography is one of his hobbies, one fine day he was photographing a bird near his office.
Suddenly he began to feel something. He began to feel he has lived this day before. Same street, same climatic conditions, same environment. The moment was exactly the photocopy of the moment he faced a few days back.
An overwhelming sense of chilling sensation ran through his body. A sense of grave satisfaction that he might have finally solved the puzzle. A few moments his body was paralyzed. His mind took him to the deepness of Himalayas, where he pictured seeing a Yeti.
His mind gave him the best possible and convincing solution, ending his restlessness of months.
He thought, "This entire nature is like a photograph, which stores, the past events as a camera does. All the words or sounds which are spoken or uttered, all the events ever occurred in this vast nature is stored in its memory in some form or the other.
When the same circumstances occur, like similar climatic conditions or chemical conditions, nature projects the stored images as flashes. Nature acts as a projector which projects old memories, given the right chemical condiction, which almost exactly the conditions that existed in the past."
These Yetis may be actual creatures living millions of years ago. When the person is in the right time and right place when nature flashes the images you trend to the mirages. These mirages only occur in the less disturbed nature such as deep forests and places like the Himalayas where it's almost untouched for several hundreds of years. "
He is now working on a scientific experiment to prove the same. Do you too believe his theory?
