We hear the words ‘Stone Age’ and think of primitive cavemen and dinosaurs. We do not think titanic, impossible structures of the ancient world that our most powerful machinery cannot duplicate! We have been virtually and subtly ‘brainwashed’ with the view of primitive primates. (Possibly, educators feel ‘superior’ and egos assume that they are the crown of Creation).
The big question is, ‘Fifty thousand years ago, were we climbing down from the trees and first learning to use simple tools?’ ‘Or, were we ‘flying through space, colonizing, building pyramid-power stations and cloning ourselves?’
The true answer to the above question is ‘B,’ flying through space colonizing and cloning. But, most people ‘buy’ the theory of primitive cave-people for the same reason they buy products. ‘Evolution and prehistoric cavemen’ are what is advertised. People feel safe and comfortable with the mainstream.
Vast numbers of tourists visit Giza, Stonehenge, Easter Island, Teotihuacan and many other STONE constructions of prehistory. Tour guides tell the visitors, ‘look how remarkable early Man was; they could accomplish so much without the use of modern technology.’ When we examine such statements, an unmistakable contradiction should be realized.
Possibly, the answer to ancient mysteries is that our ancestors possessed overwhelming technologies even more advanced than the present. When we color the Pre-Incans and Pre-Egyptians with a brush of ‘barbarism,’ we only display our own ignorance. We should give our ancestors much more credit. Can we stop insulting the Pre-Incans and Pre-Egyptians by finally understanding that they were better than us?
How were the massive megaliths of the Old World cut and transported? Tour guides and brochures will attempt to convince you. They will provide ‘reasonable,’ fundamental techniques as solutions to the puzzle. Ramps, rollers, levers, pulleys, ropes, slaves and animals should do it. Rarely will mysteries be left as mysteries. Authorities will never report, ‘We do not know.’ Instead, ‘they’ will fill-in enigmas with complete misinterpretations and pure mistakes that are no better than the Flat-Earth Theory.
A theory including ‘super-lasers and anti-gravity’ provides reasonable answers as to how the huge monoliths were shaped and moved when you consider the physics (weights) involved. Traditional academicians would never accept such notions as modern or above-modern technology existing so long ago.
One example of a typical misunderstanding was demonstrated in a particular documentary concerning the Incas. Researchers excavated the area around enormous, 100-ton, stone blocks that comprise the unbelievable fortresses high in the Andes. Thin-air sites such as Ollyantambo and Sacsayhuaman were studied. But, the problem was that the scientists foolishly believed that the ground near the giant-rock fortresses would reveal clues about the original builders. Yes, a few simple tools and bowls were found. Scant evidence of not-so-advanced Indians was discovered.
few relics of simple tribes in the shadows of mountainous sites containing building blocks weighing at least 100-tons each…have little to do with the original builders of Ollyantambo or Sacsayhuaman. The basic discoveries could very easily be recent while titanic bases of megaliths are more than 10,000 years old! One is certainly not connected to the other since oceans of TIME probably separate the two. A few, meager tribes may have endured the hostile environment of the ‘high plain’ Altiplano out of sheer inertia…
Pakal, the Mayan Astronaut
In 1949, the Mexican archaeologist Alberto Ruz discovered a vaulted room beneath the floor of the Temple of Inscriptions, in which he also discovered this large sarcophagus. The most incredible reproduction of the images on this particular sarcophagus have been made by professor Marle Greene Roberston, through rubbings on rice paper.
The human figure portrayed in relief on that stone slab has become known as “the astronaut” to some; as “Pakal”, a maya ruler, to others. From the glyphs one may view the subject as Pakal; from the visual theme one may see something that looks like a spacecraft within which he is seated. Pakal appears to be seated at a control panel within a housing device, very similar to today’s space capsules. This relief sculpture has been dated at around 690 our era, when there were apparently no space vehicles in existence; that we know of anyway.
Pakal’s posture and positioning appear to reflect the concept of movement, with his body leaning slightly forward, as though he were travelling towards a specific point, in a particular direction. Hugh Harleston, Jr., in 1974, produced a very vivid image and detailed analysis of the possibility for interpreting Pakal’s housing device to represent a spacecraft. We should like to further that analysis by adding the concept of movement to the interpretation.
