An American born astrophysicist working in Australia has used National Science Week to share the significance of Aboriginal cultural knowledge which he says other scientists often fail to understand.... because it is a totally different way of thinking. Dr Duane Hamacher...Senior Research Fellow at the Monash Indigenous Centre in Melbourne says Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander astronomical and geological knowledge and traditions needs no validation from western science
When the ancient wisdoms of the universe held by the oldest culture on earth meet modern astrophysics a new concept is born - cultural astronomy.

Ghillar, Michael Anderson 12 February 2016:
The Sound of Two Black Holes colliding
I was fortunate to have grown up with my family and senior Lawmen and Law women of the Euahlayi and far Western Gomeroi, who secretly handed on ancient knowledge in ceremonies. These men and women were born in the late 1880s and early 1890s, all were taught by their grandparents, who in most cases were the generation who first saw the whitemen come into their Country when they were teenagers.
I have been encouraged by our People to share with the broader Euahlayi community and the far western Gomeroi, the Stories of the universe that can be told publicly. I have been doing this though oral presentations and now for a broader audience in the recently premiered film Star Stories of The Dreaming. In these Star Stories I have revealed ancient Stories of the stars, the Blackholes and the creation of the natural world that we all now belong to.

One of the Stories was first brought to light in 1992 when I participated in an ABC TV Quantum science program with the Story of when the universe tipped upside down and how the Creator attached 'Strings' to key rocks that fell off the Big Warrambool, the Big River in the Sky - the Milky Way - so as to prevent these big rocks floating off into oblivion, because, as the ancient Stories reveal, when everyone learns the proper way of being in unity with each other through the sharing of love, peace and tranquillity and we can demonstrate that we have learnt from the wrongs of the past, then the universe will move again and everything will go back in its right place.
A team of scientists have announced that they had heard and recorded the sound of two black holes colliding a billion light-years away, a fleeting chirp that fulfilled the last prediction of Einstein's general theory of relativity - New York Times. Read More
I'm excited to see that modern science research is now confirming these very ancient Stories about the Aboriginal world of Creation. There is much more to be learnt because our ancient Stories go much deeper than what science has delivered so far.
In the ABC Quantum program I was with my two young sons and presented how these 'Strings' were attached to the rocks, now referred to as planets. This knowledge was combined with the findings of the Siding Springs research group at Coonabarabran who had filmed energy rays between the planets in 1992/3 and referred to them as 'Gravity Strings'.
Our Peoples at this time should feel very proud of our ancient extra-terrestrial knowledge, which is now being affirmed by modern science to be true and not fictional myths.

When I listen to my grandmother, that's my Dad's mum, she was taught by her grandmother who was an old woman when the whiteman first come into our Country and she taught my grandmother in our way of teaching we skip a generation that's how we compress knowledge and that's how we keep that knowledge pretty much intact ...- Ghillar, Michael Anderson
