Yesterday I read a book on the Persepolis Palace, which translates as the Persian Palace or the Cities of Persia. The centre of Persia, as well as all the palaces, is situated now in Iran, in the city of Shiraz. The palace is a wonder of the world, but many people do not know its history. It was built about 3 thousand years ago. The Persian Empire was among the strongest, but above all among the most just ones. A very long time ago the territories of present-day Iran, Syria and Iraq … were populated by the Sumerians. It was among the most ancient civilizations. They were very educated and there were many scientists and scholars among them. They knew a lot about the outer space. Its precise description by the Sumerians has given a shock just to everyone in the contemporary science. These were the Sumerians, who have passed all their knowledge to the Persians across the millennia. The power of the Persian Empire used to spread from Egypt to China, including Africa and the European countries. They all were protected by the Persian king and, therefore, brought to him all kinds of gifts, which has been immortalized in the form of rock carvings. In those times of a tumultuous slaveholding system, Persia treated with respect the notion of Human Being and the notion of Freedom. Any work used to be always paid for depending on the worker’s skills and workmanship level. As far as history goes. There were no wars. Peace was reigning. A daybreak of sciences, poetry and medicine. In the worldwide perspective, Persia is a source of any culture’s conception. The archaeologists have found clay tablet elements with images and inscriptions on. For the Persian Empire all the nations of the earth were equal. In those times people believed in the devil and Satan, but the culture of Persia changed everything. Belief in God was born. In Persia it was Ahura-Mazda, or Ashu Zoroaster. All his laws were complied with. By the way, the laws were just ones. But … the war. It destroyed everything. Everyone is aware of the name of Alexander the Great (in Persian: Iskander Makduni). When he became victorious, the first thing he asked for was 4 thousand camels to transport all the gold and treasures from the Persian Palace. It is common knowledge, that a Western movie on Alexander the Great was produced. You know, I could not see it. And it is not because my ancestors were Persian, but because I dislike the facts being concealed. How can a person, who deliberately burnt down a huge amount of books and scientific works, be a hero? It is a blow to the world culture. The fire had, probably, slowed down a further development of the whole world. Yet, now he stands as a hero, who has won a victory over the Persian Empire. Perhaps, he was a good manager, but his position of destroying in cool blood history and the cultural heritage is way off for me. Many would ask why I am talking about it. My answer will be as follows: Firstly: I regret the destruction of the great and just Persian Empire as a founder of culture. Secondly: It is a gross mistake to build one’s history on mythical or distorted facts. Thirdly: Many things would have changed in the world for the better, had not the Empire been destroyed. I am speaking about an empire and a nation, which had been the first to create a coin, written language, the first seal and many attributes of our today’s life. Take an umbrella, for instance, it was in existence a long-long time ago. Even the rock carvings have it. The matter is that, unfortunately, some people, who have seen the film, are not sufficiently aware of the history, while after seeing it just one impression is produced: Alexander the Great is a vigorous historic personality of genius to win over Persia, while King Darius is a cowardly person running away from the battlefield. Many a Persian living in those times and involved in developing science for our future, who have given us a gift of a huge amount of cultural values, would have been offended and ashamed for present-day people with its viewpoint on the course of history. Yet, in part, we ourselves are to blame. We do not want to know the truth and we believe what we are told and the way it is presented. For me the Persians are a great nation and a just one, I would like to repeat myself. They defended the rights of all the peoples of the world without any exception. But here came the destroyer, Alexander. I have put down my opinion, because I was interested a lot in it, read about it and I do feel that the things look this way. I shall put a picture showing the objects of those times, which have survived. The ruins talk. This is how the things were and how they will be; any civilization has its beginning and its end, but the Persian Empire has left over the most transparent and interesting lines inscribed in the science of the entire humanity. Recently, the town of Arkaim has been found in Russia, it was populated by the Persians’ ancestors, the Aris. We are planning an expedition to the area. I have seen some pictures. It is not just a town; I see it is a research centre with an observatory attached to it. I feel that I must go there. In my opinion, the town of Arkaim is a place of return or revival. It is a channel or a communication between the heaven and earth. Studying history is a right granted to everybody, just as well as believing or not believing, but I would say one thing: in ruins and remnants of any culture every centimetre has the power to make us believe in miracles.
