In my studies of Vedic epistemology, I have learned that all varieties of material knowledge are infected by four defects. These are (1) karanaapatava, imperfect senses; (2) bhrama, mistakes; (3) pramada, illusion; and (4) vipralipsa, cheating. If you look carefully enough, you will find abundant examples of each in every field of material knowledge, including archaeology. This certainly calls into question the conclusions arrived at by such systems of knowledge, especially when compared to the process of acquiring knowledge through other methods, such as accepting knowledge from divinely inspired records of ancient wisdom traditions. In my own work, I have relied on accounts of extreme human antiquity found in the ancient Sanskrit writings of India to guide my research into the history of modern archaeology. The Babylonian king lists, Chinese emperor lists, Egyptian pharaoh lists, and Mayan calendars may also be added to the list of ancient wisdom sources that can help guide researchers into the history of humans beings on our planet (and other planets).
