The Academics in Aspic have invented a magical linguistic jet stream that forces Indian writing systems to migrate only in a Easterly direction.
The underlying physics of this phenomena are shrouded in mystery but the Academics in Aspic have convinced themselves that even WHEN an Indian writing system exits India on a Westerly trajectory THEN the linguistic jet stream magically forces the migrating language to perform a majestic U-turn around the Himalayas so that it ends up travelling in an Easterly direction towards Beijing and Tokyo.
The linguistic jet stream can be traced back to 1964 when the Academics in Aspic crafted their taxonomy of ancient Indian scripts based upon the design principle that languages always migrate in a Easterly direction into India from their designated “uncertain prototype” root language in the Holy Land that was speculatively labelled Aramaic.

A Historical Atlas of South Asia is a definitive historical chronology of the region of South Asia from prehistoric times through the present.
It was edited and largely authored by Joseph E. Schwartzberg, professor emeritus of South Asian Studies at the University of Minnesota.
The initial assembly of the Atlas began in 1964 with many authors, historians, cartographers and researchers contributing over a fourteen-year period.
The atlas was first published in 1978 by the University of Chicago Press.

The Holy Land is an area roughly located between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea that also includes the Eastern Bank of the Jordan River. Historically, it is synonymous with both the Land of Israel and Palestine, and the Lebanese Republic, the Syrian Arab Republic and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
Aramaic is a family of languages or dialects belonging to the Semitic subfamily of the Afroasiatic language family.
More specifically, it is part of the Northwest Semitic group, which also includes the Canaanite languages such as Hebrew and Phoenician.
The Aramaic alphabet was widely adopted for other languages and is ancestral to the Hebrew, Syriac and Arabic alphabets.
In the last 50 [odd] years the fashionable trend amongst the Academics in Aspic has been to relocate their envisaged root language from the Holy Land to the Pontic Steppe.
The Kurgan hypothesis (also known as the Kurgan theory or Kurgan model) is the most widely accepted proposal of several solutions to explain the origins and spread of the Indo-European languages.
It postulates that the people of an archaeological “Kurgan culture” in the Pontic steppe were the most likely speakers of the Proto-Indo-European language (PIE).
The Pontic–Caspian steppe is the vast steppeland stretching from the northern shores of the Black Sea as far east as the Caspian Sea, from Moldova and western Ukraine across the Southern Federal District and the Volga Federal District of Russia to western Kazakhstan, forming part of the larger Eurasian steppe, adjacent to the Kazakh steppe to the east.
It is a part of the Palearctic temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands ecoregion of the temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome.
The area corresponds to Cimmeria, Scythia, and Sarmatia of classical antiquity.
The Academics in Aspic have also re-branded their envisaged root language so that it is now known as the Proto-Indo-European language [aka PIE in the Sky].
However, throughout this period of fluctuating fads and fancies, the Academics in Aspic have rigidly adhered to their original design principle that languages always migrate in an Easterly direction Into India.
The excellent AncientScripts.com illustrates the subsequent Easterly migration of writing systems Out of India and Into Asia.

Brahmi is the modern name given to one of the oldest writing systems used in South and Central Asia during the final centuries BCE and the early centuries CE.
Like its contemporary, Kharoṣṭhī, which was used in what is now Afghanistan and Pakistan, it is an abugida.
The best-known Brahmi inscriptions are the rock-cut edicts of Ashoka in north-central India, dated to 250–232 BCE.
The Brahmic scripts are a family of abugida or alphabet writing systems.
They are used throughout the Indian Subcontinent , Southeast Asia and parts of East Asia, and were once used in Japan, and are descended from the Brahmi script of ancient India.
They are used by languages of several language families: Indo-European, Dravidian, Tibeto-Burman, Mongolic, Austroasiatic, Austronesian, Turkic, Tai.
They were also the source of the dictionary order of Japanese kana.
Interestingly, this mainstream time-lime provides broad support for the Old Japanese Cedar Tree chronology [produced by Leona Libby in 1976] because the Easterly migration of writing system Out of India during the 1st millennium appear to reflect the catastrophic disruptions centred around 637 AD and the Heinsohn Horizon around 914 A.D.
This response pattern is also detectable in the Timeline of Buddhism.
The Nyingma tradition is the oldest of the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism (the other three being the Kagyu, Sakya and Gelug).
Around 760, Trisong Detsen invited Padmasambhava and the Nalanda abbot Śāntarakṣita to Tibet to introduce Buddhism to the “Land of Snows.” Trisong Detsen ordered the translation of all Buddhist texts into Tibetan.
However, this situation would not last:
The explosive developments were interrupted in the mid-ninth century as the Empire began to disintegrate, leading to a century-long interim of civil war and decentralization about which we know relatively little.
From the eleventh century onwards, the Nyingma tradition flourished along with the newer Sarma schools, and it was at that time that Nyingmapas began to see themselves as a distinct group and the term “Nyingma” came into usage.
These catastrophic disruptions during the 1st millennium have been a major job creation scheme for the gradualist Academics in Aspic as they distract themselves papering over the cracks in their belief system by inventing numerous layers of imaginary proto-babble and pseudo-speak.
This frenetic level of invention [amongst the Academics in Aspic] means they don’t have time to recognise the very obvious [catastrophic] step changes during the 1st millennium.
The Tamil script is an abugida script that is used by Tamils and Tamil speakers in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Singapore and elsewhere to write the Tamil language, as well as to write the liturgical language Sanskrit, using consonants and diacritics not represented in the Tamil alphabet.
This frenetic level of invention [amongst the Academics in Aspic] also means they don’t have time to consider whether any of the inhabitants of the Indus Valley Civilisation [along with their religion and language] migrated Westwards Out of India when their homeland became desiccated and engulfed by sand i.e. the Thar Desert.
The Indus Valley Civilisation (IVC) was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1900 BCE) mainly in the northwestern regions of the South Asia, extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India.
By 2600 BCE, the Early Harappan communities turned into large urban centres.
In total, more than 1,052 cities and settlements have been found, mainly in the general region of the Indus Rivers and their tributaries.
The quality of municipal town planning suggests the knowledge of urban planning and efficient municipal governments which placed a high priority on hygiene, or, alternatively, accessibility to the means of religious ritual.
As seen in Harappa, Mohenjo-Daro and the recently partially excavated Rakhigarhi, this urban plan included the world’s first known urban sanitation systems.
Within the city, individual homes or groups of homes obtained water from wells.
From a room that appears to have been set aside for bathing, waste water was directed to covered drains, which lined the major streets.
Houses opened only to inner courtyards and smaller lanes.
The house-building in some villages in the region still resembles in some respects the house-building of the Harappans.
The ancient Indus systems of sewerage and drainage that were developed and used in cities throughout the Indus region were far more advanced than any found in contemporary urban sites in the Middle East and even more efficient than those in many areas of Pakistan and India today.
The advanced architecture of the Harappans is shown by their impressive dockyards, granaries, warehouses, brick platforms, and protective walls.
While the Aryan Invasion hoax that continued to be peddled by Marxist and colonial historiographers alike for decades insisted that the Indus civilization was violently uprooted by the so-called invading Aryans and who were responsible for the Vedas and what became Hinduism, the excavations along the Indus and Saraswati sites reveals that roots of Vedic, Hindu philosophy and religion can be seen to have emerged during the Mature Harappan period – almost five thousand years ago.
“Taken as a whole, [the Indus Valley people’s] religion is so characteristically Indian as hardly to be distinguished from still living Hinduism.”
[John Marshal, in 1931, pg 233]
The Sarasvati River is one of the main Rigvedic rivers mentioned in the scripture Rig Veda and later Vedic and post-Vedic texts.
It plays an important role in Hinduism, since Vedic Sanskrit and the first part of the Rig Veda are regarded to have originated when the Vedic people lived on its banks, 2nd millennium BCE.
It was observed that major Indus Valley Civilization sites at Kalibangan (Rajasthan), Banawali and Rakhigarhi (Haryana), Dholavira and Lothal (Gujarat) also lay along this course.
The Thar Desert, also known as the Great Indian Desert, is a large, arid region in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent that forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan.
About 85% of the Thar Desert is in India, and the remaining part in Pakistan.
In India, it covers about 320,000 km2 (120,000 sq mi), of which 60% is in Rajasthan and extends into Gujarat, Punjab, and Haryana.
This desert comprises a very dry part, the Marusthali region in the west, and a semidesert region in the east with fewer sand dunes and slightly more precipitation.
The mainstream narrative is that by 1700 BCE most of the Indus Valley Civilisation cities had been abandoned and that the civilization finally collapsed around 1300 BCE as the population migrated overland in an Easterly direction [driven by the irresistible linguistic jet stream].
Around 1800 BCE signs of a gradual decline began to emerge, and by around 1700 BCE most of the cities had been abandoned.
Archaeological excavations indicate that the decline of Harappa drove people eastward.
Evidently, the august Academics in Aspic don’t want to undermine their magical linguistic jet stream by acknowledging the very clear evidence that the Indus Valley Civilisation was [very] capable of migrating in a Westerly direction by sea.
The engineering skill of the Harappans was remarkable, especially in building docks.
The tidal dockyard at Lothal – its 1.5m to 1.8m thick walls “made of millions of carefully adjusted baked bricks” – had proportions of 6:1 (217 m by 36 m), while the huge stadium in the middle town at Dholavira had dimensions of “283 m long and 47.5 m wide” – the same ratio of 6:1!
The presence of the world’s largest ancient tidal dock yet discovered, at Lothal, and artefacts from faraway lands points to a flourishing trade with the rest of the world.
“It appears that Mesopotamian rulers were particularly fond of Harappan jewellery.”
[‘The Lost River”, pg 107]
Lothal is one of the most prominent cities of the ancient Indus valley civilisation, located in the Bhāl region of the modern state of Gujarāt and dating from 3700 BCE.
A flood destroyed village foundations and settlements (c. 2350 BCE).
The dock was built on the eastern flank of the town, and is regarded by archaeologists as an engineering feat of the highest order.
All the construction were made of fire dried bricks, lime and sand mortar and not by sun dried bricks as bricks are still intact after 4000 years and still bonded together with each other with the mortar bond.
The term Sea Peoples describes a theory in Egyptology that a confederation of seafaring raiders attacked Ancient Egypt prior to the Bronze Age Collapse.
From a careful study of Eastern records and Sabaism, the author is led to take up the position that the round towers were constructed by early Indian colonists of Ireland (the Tuath-de-danaans), in honour of ” the fructifying principle of nature,” of which the sun and moon are representative.
The duration of Tuath-de-danaan supremacy may have been some six centuries, dating from the first battle of Moytura, in B.C. 1202, to the second battle, in or about B.C. 600.

Clearly, these Academic Ostriches have simply buried their heads in the sand.
In behavioral finance, the ostrich effect is the attempt made by investors to avoid negative financial information.
The name comes from the common (but false) legend that ostriches bury their heads in the sand to avoid danger.
UPDATE 23 July 2016
The genetic evidence suggests Indian DNA arrived in Australia about 141 generations ago
i.e. in the age of the Sea Peoples around 1,227 BCE.
Much more surprising was the discovery of the more recent genetic mix with people from India, from which Australian Aborigines derive an estimated 11% of their DNA.
Computer simulations estimated that the first interbreeding occurred 141 generations ago;
Indians and Australian Aborigines interbred 4,200 years ago, sharing DNA (and Dingoes)
