TOP NEWS : Does FBI Memo Prove Aliens Landing In 1947?

20 March 2011



Atlantis is the subject of a legend about an advanced island civilization that was destroyed or lost. Stories about Atlantis are first mentioned in Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias, in which characters say it was destroyed by an earthquake or a tsunami about 9,000 years before the time in which Plato wrote. The story claims Atlantis was somewhere outside the Pillars of Hercules. According to Plato, the story originated with Ancient Egyptian priests.
Some people believe that the stories are fictions made up to serve the purposes of Plato's dialogs. But others take them as if they were serious historical accounts.
There have been dozens — perhaps hundreds — of locations proposed for the classical Atlantis. Some are more-or-less serious attempts at legitimate scholarly or archaeological works; others have been made by psychic or other pseudoscientific means. As continental drift became better understood and accepted during the 1950s, most "Lost Continent" theories of Atlantis have been proven conclusively false.
Some cultures have "lost civilization" myths. In some cases, it has been argued that there is a common historical event or real "lost civilization" at the root of some or all of these legends, but there is considerable disagreement between the competing hypotheses. It may be that these legends have arisen from many different historical events, and are only just now being associated by modern theorizers because of their similarity. It may also be that these legends are entirely fictional, but for some reason have arisen and remained popular in many different cultures at different times.

How do we know about Atlantis?

Timaeus and Critias, two of Plato's dialogues, are the only existing written records which specifically refer to Atlantis. 
The dialogues are conversations between Socrates, Hermocrates, Timaeus, and Critias. Apparently in response to a prior talk by Socrates about ideal societies, Timaeus and Critias agree to entertain Socrates with a tale that is "not a fiction but a true story."
The story is about the conflict between the ancient Athenians and the Atlantians 9000 years before Plato's time. 
Knowledge of the distant past apparently forgotten to the Athenians of Plato's day, the story of Atlantis was conveyed to Solon by Egyptian priests. Solon passed the tale to Dropides, the great-grandfather of Critias. Critias learned of it from his grandfather also named Critias, son of Dropides.
Cast of Characters
All of the men, except for Timaeus, who take part in or are mentioned in Timaeus and Critias are known to have actually existed in ancient Greece. Records of their lives and deeds have been recorded in other writings from the time period.
Note: There are 2 people named Critias related to the story of Atlantis and this can lead to some confusion. There is the Critias who actually takes part in the dialogues. He is the one who tells the story of Atlantis to Socrates. Then there is Critias who was the grandfather of the Critias of the dialogues. This elder Critias told the story of Atlantis to his grandson, Critias, who then conveyed the story to Socrates in the dialogues.
Those who actually take part in the dialogues:
Timaeus - there is no historical record of him.
Critias - Plato's great grandfather.
Socrates - Plato's mentor and teacher. He was condemned to death by authorities in Athens for "corrupting the moral of Athenian youth"; He lived from 469 to 399 BC.
Hermocrates - statesman and soldier from Syracuse.
Those mentioned in the dialogues:
Solon - Athenian traveler, poet, and lawgiver who lived from approximately 638-559 BC. According to Plato it was he who learned of the story of Atlantis from an Egyptian priest.
Dropides - Critias' great grandfather who was told the story of Atlantis by Solon, a distant relative and close friend.
Critias - Son of Dropides and grandfather of the Critias who takes part in the dialogues. It was he who related the story of Atlantis to the Critias of the dialogues.

Edgar Cayce - Atlantean Hall of Records

Edgar Cayce predicted the discovery of an Atlantean "Hall of Records"
between the Sphinx and the Nile with a connecting entrance under
the right, front paw of the Sphinx.

The following segment was taken from Cayce, Edgar "On Atlantis" New York: Warner Books, 1968.
...It would be well if this entity were to seek either of the three phases of the ways and means in which those records of the activities of individuals were preserved -- the one in the Atlantean land, that sank, which will rise and is rising again; another in the place of the records that leadeth from the Sphinx to the hall of records, in the Egyptian land; and another in the Aryan or Yucatan land, where the temple there is overshadowing same.             (2012-1; Sep 25, 1939) - from page 146
...the entity joined with those who were active in putting the records in forms that were partially of the old characters of the ancient or early Egyptian, and part in the newer form of the Atlanteans. These may be found, especially when the house or tomb of records is opened, in a few years from now.                                                                                          (2537-1; Jul 17, 1941) - p.146
...[the entity] was among the first to set the records that are yet to be discovered or yet to be had of those activities in the Atlantean land, and for the preservation of data that is yet to be found from the chambers of the way between the Sphinx and the pyramid of records. 
(3575-2; Jan 20, 1944) - p.147 
Q.2: Give in detail what the sealed room contains.

A.2: A record of Atlantis from the beginning of those periods when the Spirit took form, or began the encasements in that land; and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn; together with the record of the first destruction, and the changes that took place in the land; with the record of the sojournings of the peoples and their varied activities in other lands, and a record of the meetings of all the nations or lands, for the activities in the destruction of Atlantis; and the building of the pyramid of initiation, together with whom, what, and where the opening of the records would come, that are as copies from the sunken Atlantis. For with the change, it [Atlantis] must rise again. In position, this lies -- as the sun rises from the waters -- as the line of the shadows (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx; that was set later as the sentinel or guard and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx's right paw until the time has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this sphere of man's experience. Then [it lies] between the Sphinx and the river.                                  (378-16; Oct 29, 1933) - p.147-8

Alan Alford on Atlantis

Nearly twenty-four hundred years ago, the Athenian philosopher Plato penned one of the most controversial and tantalising stories ever written. Once upon a time, he said, there had existed a magnificent seafaring civilisation which had attempted to take over the world, but had perished when its island sank into the sea – the result of an unbearable cataclysm of earthquakes and floods.
This civilisation had been called Atlantis, and it had heralded from the Atlantic Ocean, taking its name from the god Atlas who presided over the depths of the sea. Its main island had sunk some nine thousand years before the time of Solon, circa 9600 BC by our modern-day system of reckoning. The puzzle of Atlantis is this. On the one hand, Plato was adamant that the island had sunk in the Atlantic Ocean, and equally adamant that the story was absolutely true.
And yet, on the other hand, modern scientists have mapped the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, using echo sounders, ‘Geosat’ radar and multibeam sonar, and found no trace whatsoever of any sunken island. The result is a deadlock on how to decipher the story. Some argue that it is a myth, of uncertain meaning. Others argue that it is a moral and political fable. And others, still, continue to argue that it is pure history, and that Plato simply got his geographical facts wrong.

The Atlantis Syndrome

by Paul Jordan

Atlantis started with Plato and in his hands it was never a supercivilization of the sort conjectured by later authors; perhaps in strictly Greek terms it was no civilization at all but rather a fatally luxurious elaboration of an essentially barbarian way of life, for all its inception by a god. At all events, it was no seminal civilization: it wasn't the fons et origo of all later civilizations in the world, indeed Athens was its independent contemporary. Both Atlantis and old Athens were, for Plato, but episodes in the ever ongoing cycle of catastrophes and renewals that he saw as the most rational and scientific interpretation to which the world of human experience could be subjected. For him, science and religion were quite bound up together, so that the natural catastrophes were at the same time eras in which the divine light was withdrawn from the world and the equally natural renewals were times when it returned. So rational and obviously true was this scheme of things to Plato that the "problem" of the real historical location and fate of Atlantis that has exercised so many writers after him would have left him cold, or perhaps amused to think of what he had started. We quoted early in this book several passages of Plato to show how he handled stories in his works.

11,500 years ago…

by R. Vieni

Time and time again the vessel shattered against the fury of the “wandering stones”, and for as many times men stubbornly restarted weaving the thread of their everlasting wander.
Obscure Penelopes of the knowledge, stimulated by an unequalled curiosity, they wanted to tear open the veil that divides the cave from the light, breaking the archaic code of prohibitions, whilst placing themselves as the sole part of becoming.
Not by chance, the great Florentine Poet put on Odysseus’s lips, the hero per excellence set against the son of Peleus whose sole feature was strength, the immortal lines “fatti non foste a viver come bruti, ma per seguir virtute e canoscenza…”.(1)
On one side strength, on the other the longing for knowledge. On one side the old world of Atlantis and of Dorian conquerors, on the other the innovation introduced by the fullness and dignity of the symbolic universe of Hellenics. So there are the Pillars of Hercules… and there is Odysseus. There is taboo… and there is the ancient dream of man.
For us, today, the outermost frontier is represented by the cosmos… our ancestors found such frontier on the dark wave next to the farthest barrier of that which was in those times their sensible universe: at that time, an inviolate and inexplicable sea.

Evidence for Existence of Atlantis

The following 4 segments contain excerpts from the full length articles listed below.
"This is probably the greatest discovery in World history", was stated by Maxine Asher, the co-director of a scientific expedition that found Atlantis at the bottom of the ocean, reported United Press International and major newspapers in the United States during the summer of 1973. UPI continued that "Maxine Asher said that scuba divers found data to prove the existence of the super-civilization which legend says sank beneath the sea thousands of years ago". "The divers had found evidence of roads and large columns, some with concentric spiral motifs, in the exact place described by the Greek philosopher Plato".

"The group of some 70 scientists, teachers and adventurers was endorsed by Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, California."

The document "History of the Golden Ages" reveals over 30 ruins including pyramids, domes, paved roads, rectangular buildings, columns, canals and artifacts that have been found on the ocean bottoms from the Bahamas to the nearby coasts of Europe and Africa, referencing the vast size of the lost continent.

Dozens of historians and famous writers wrote about the Atlantis they believed existed, how the Myans and Aztecs had told their conquerors that they came from Atlantis and Mu, about ancient tablets photographed in Peru showing those two lost continents, Atlantis and Lemuria, and ancient maps clearly showing Atlantis.

Just some of the ruins so far found include:
  • A pyramid explored by Dr Ray Brown on the sea floor off the Bahamas in 1970. Brown was accompanied by 4 divers who also found roads, domes, rectangular buildings, unidentified metallic instruments, and a statue holding a "mysterious" crystal containing miniature pyramids. The metal devices and crystals were taken to Florida for analysis at a university there. What was discovered was that the crystal amplified energy that passed through it.
  • Ruins of roads and buildings found off Binini Island in the 1960's by the photographed and published expeditions of Dr Mansan Valentine. Similar ruins were also photographed off Cay Sal in the Bahamas. Similar underwater ruins were found off Morocco and photographed 50 to 60 feet underwater.
  • A huge 11 room pyramid found 10,000 feet under water in the mid Atlantic Ocean with a huge crystal top, as reported by Tony Benlk.
  • A 1977 report of a huge pyramid found off Cay Sal in the Bahamas, photographed by Ari Marshall's expedition, about 150 feet underwater. The pyramid was about 650 feet high. Mysteriously the surrounding water was lit by sparkling white water flowing out of the openings in the pyramid and surrounded by green water, instead of the black water everywhere else at that depth.
  • A sunken city about 400 miles off Portugal found by Soviet expeditions led by Boris Asturua, with buildings made of extremely strong concrete and plastics. He said "the remains of streets suggests the use of monorails for transportation". He also brought up a statue.
  • A marble acropolis underwater across five acres of fluted columns raised on pillars.
  • Heinrich Schilemann, the man who found and excavated the famous ruins of Troy (which historians thought was only a legend), reportedly left a written account of his discovery of a bronze vase with a metal unknown to scientists who examined it, in the famous Priam Treasure. Inside it are glyphs in Phoenician stating that it was from King Chronos of Atlantis. Identical pottery was found in Tiajuanaco, Bolivia.
Many other examples of roads, buildings and columns are available, many of them made with materials not available in their areas.

Many ancient maps are also known to have Atlantis on them, including the ancient Greek ones studied by Christopher Columbus before he set sail for America.

Ancient writings from the Aztecs, Myans, Greeks, Egyptians, Spain, India, Tibet, and islands in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans all speak of ancient sunken continents and their connection to them.

Human footprints and shoe prints, a perfectly engineered cube, jewelry, a prehistoric animal with a hole in its skull that scientists admit only a bullet could make, a remnant of a screw, and other modern artifacts have been found in layered rock strata geologists admit formed on these objects MILLIONS of years ago. All of these discoveries were printed in public daily newspapers when they occurred, and left out of history books simply because historians could not explain them with THEIR theories.

Who Were the Atlanteans?

Firstly, it's important to point out that Atlantis was not the only continent from ancient times that sank beneath the waves. There was the huge continent of Lemuria which also incorporated other countries like Mu and Mar in the Pacific Ocean, and Lumania in the Indian Ocean. Remnants of the lost continents may still be seen as the peaks of their mountains make small islands in the middle of vast oceans - Easter Island is thought to be a remnant of Lemuria and still bears the great stone statues, though only their heads are showing above the ground.

There were also the lands of Thule and Hyperborea in the north, which are believed to be sunk below what is now the north pole. There is also information about this land at the north pole continuing to exist today on a fourth dimensional level - but that's another story. Also the land which is now at the south pole was also thought to be once inhabited when it was a tropical land.

The story of how these various continents became inhabited with highly advanced civilizations is a fascinating one, but after many thousands of years it all came to an end for the last time around 11,500 years ago with dramatic planetary events which sank and shifted continents and covered much of the earth with water. Clues to the history on earth before our own recently recorded history can be found in the Sumerian texts.

So who were the Atlanteans and how did they live? The following information has been gathered from various sources for a very brief introduction. I recommend that you read the original documents for more in-depth information [linked at the bottom of the page].

The original Atlanteans were of extra-terrestrial origin and came to earth over 50 thousand years ago. They were of human shape, but not modern earth humans as we are. They were very tall and fair skinned and probably originated from the Lyrian star system. They are also known as the Elohim or Annunaki and their story is hidden in the texts of Genesis. They had life spans of around 800 years and are known in some texts as 'the tall ones'.

Most all ancient civilizations believed in the Titans, the race of giant humans that inhabited Earth long ago. Different races knew them by different names. These 7 to 12 foot humanoids were thought to be legendary until the excavation of over a dozen skeletons 8 to 12 feet tall, around the world, shocked archaeologists. The Spanish Conquistadors left diaries of wild blond-haired, blue eyed 8 to 12 foot high men running around in the Andes during the conquest of the Incas.

They, along with other groups working on the planet, eventually developed the smaller human being by genetic manipulation, originally for use as workers.

The 'Adamu' (or man) were originally created to work in various projects around the world. Some of these were mining, food production, construction, etc. By giving man the ability to reproduce on his own (the original sin), the population began to multiply quite rapidly. The Annunaki began to clamor for more of the workers. Human females were further altered so that conception was possible not once per year, but every 28 days. This can be found in Genesis, Chapter 3, Verse 16.

The Annunaki soldiers eventually started to reproduce with the earth human females: "When the sons of the Elohim came unto the daughters of man, and they bore them children".

Technology on Atlantis

The Atlantean consciousness eventually evolved from a less material, fourth-dimensional form toward the sensual, or physical. Far from being like the other 'ancient' civilizations that we know about, the level of technology reached when Atlantis was at its' peak was far superior to our own.

Among the accomplishments of the Atlanteans, for example, was 'perfect' wather control. Now the average immediate notion is of abundant fields of waving grain in endless summer alongside the most beautiful of beaches. They had that, and it bored them; too utilitarian to them, like we might look at a vineyard. They left such backlands to the serving creatures. The Atlanteans had come into the physical world essentially for the stimulation. They loved storms. Whole areas of their land were given over, like national parks, to violent displays of atmospheric turbulence. Their servants, of course, were less fond of these events, which could kn the equivalent of "artisitc licence" spill over and kill them, destroy their homes, etc. If the Atlanteans noticed and/or cared, they could restore all this damage at will. Some did, some didn't.

They also had the ability to effect geological events for their experiential pleasure. Volcanic fountains were a favourite, but much was done with steam and mineral venting for artistic result. They had plenty of time. The earlier ones were still immortal. More than one volcanic seamount poking its head above the waters of the Atlantic Ocean started out this way. Later, of course, they lost control.

The real core of Atlantean technology that can still be dug up around the earth was far beyond something as simple as weather control. What has attracted the military like carrion is the 'threshold' technology. Some hint of this floated up in the movie 'Stargate', except that the Atlantean version could be called 'Probability Gate'. It's a solid state device (with no selectable 'dial' like the stargate in the movie, for instance) that uses what we think of as time/space as an energy source. The threshold is a lens into probable existence streams, or continua. This area was delved into more deeply with research like the Philadelphia Experiment.

Atlantean Crystals

The Atlanteans used crystals quite extensively, and mis-used them to such a degree that they eventually led to the catastrophe which caused Atlantis to disappear into the ocean.

The Atlanteans used the knowledge of the crystal refraction, amplification and storage. It is known that a beam of light directed intensley and focused specifically on certain series of facets in a gem will, when it exits from the reflective plane of the gem, be amplified rather than diminished. And further, these amplified energies were broken down into a wide and sophisticated spectrum. The Atlanteans used the spectrum of this energy so as to be more useable, and for a specific purpose, much as one would use petoleum in terms of its various spectrum limitations for specific purposes.

Extracting this and that and other things from the same basic substance, they used certain divisions of the energy for growing things. Others for healing, others for knowledge or increasement of substance. Other phases of spectrum for dissassembling molecule structures, and yet other combinations of these strata for building, assembling structures, as in chains; or producing matter, transmutation of matter and that sort. Their basic technology is still available in the earth plane in various locations.

Crystals have the ability to transfer energy, to retain it, to maintain its intensity, to focus and transmit it over great distance to similar receivers as are equal or comparable to the transmitter. Thus, from one pyramid to another the Atlanteans, in a sense, transmitted energy. That when the face of the earth was directed toward a certain point, one pyramid would function to intensify and transmit energies to other pyramids which would then act as receiving devices and would disperse energy as it was needed. The opposite would be true, when that pyramid was at unfocusable point to their celestial alignment the others would transmit to those. Very simple method, very effective method. Though it brought them many difficulties later.

Atlantean crystals were natural forms, but their growths were speeded up. Some specimens of clear quartz were produced to almost 25 feet high and 10 feet in diameter, had 12 sides and were used for storing and transmitting power.

Small crystals, four to five feet high were infused with different colours, and had a varied number of facets, to be used for different purposes, such as healing, meditation, psychic development, increasing mental capacity, communications, powering generators, dematerialisation, and transport of objects, magnetic force fields, and travel at speeds undreamed of by our culture today.

A number of crystals were shaped into invered pyramids, with four to six sides, were infused with various shades of pink or rose, which created a light beam for surgery, by changing molecular structure, and for soothing pain, particularly in the delicate areas of the brain, the eyes, the heart and reproductive organs. Gold or yellow crystals changed colours to deeper hues in the presence of disease or bodily vibrational disorders. Ruby and purple stones helped cure emotional and spiritual problems; and black crystals, no longer in existence, were powerful protectors.

For general rejuvenation and a return of vitality the ancient Atlanteans periodically meditated 15 to 20 minutes inside a circle of 6, 11, 22 or 24 stones of different types, holding a clear quartz in their hands, which acted as a control and focaliser.

All these various crystals received their power from a variety of sources, including the Sun, the Earth's energy grid system, or from each other. The larger stones, called Fire Crystals, were the central receiving and broadcasting stations, while others acted as receivers for individual cities, buildings, vehicles and homes. On a higher spiritual level, rooms made of crystals were places where the Initiates left their bodies in the Final Transcendence, often never to return.

In the modern Bermuda Triangle, on the ocean bottom where the ruins of Atlantis now exist, the energy build-up in the sunken and damaged Fire Crystals can periodically trigger dematerialisations of anything in the area.

One of the most detailed descriptions of the Atlantean use of a mysterious instrument called the Great Crystal was given by Edgar Cayce, who mentioned it many times. The crystal, he said was housed in a special building oval in shape, with a dome that could be rolled back, exposing the Crystal to the light of the sun, moon and stars at the most favourable time.

The interior of the building was lined with non-conducting metal or stone, similar to asbestos or bakelite, a thermosetting plastic. The Crystal itself, which Cayce also called the Tuaoi Stone, or Firestone, was huge in size, cylindrical in length, and prismatic in shape, cut with six sides. Atop the crystal was a moveable capstone, used to both concentrate incoming rays of energy, and to direct currents to various parts of the Atlantean countryside.

It appears that the Crystal gathered solar, lunar, stellar, atmospheric and Earth energies as well as unknown elemental forces and concentrated these at a specific point, located between the top of the Crystal and the bottom of the capstone.

The energy was used for various purposes. In the beginning it was used as purely a spiritual tool by initiates who could handle the great energy. The early Atlanteans were peaceful people. As they developed more physical material bodies, they used the crystal to rejuvenate their bodies and were able to live hundreds of years while maintaining a youthful appearance.

Later the Crystal was put to other uses. Currents of energy were transmitted throughout the land, like radio waves, and powered by these, crafts and vehicles traversed the land, through the sky and under the sea at the speed of sound. By utilisation of other currents originating from the Crystal, the Atlanteans were also able to transmit over great distances the human voice, and pictures, like modern television. In the same manner, even heat and light could be directed to specific buildings or open arenas, giving illumination and warmth by seemingly invisible means.

Toward the end of their existence, however, the Atlanteans became greedier for more power, the operation of the Crystal was taken over by those of less spiritual fortitude, and the energies of the Great Crystal were tuned to higher and more destructive frequencies.

Finally the Crystal was tuned too high, activating volcanoes and melting mountains, ultimately causing the submergence of Atlantis, and perhaps even the axis shift of the Earth itself.

Atlantis in Mexico?

by Ed Ziomek
Gene D. Matlock deeply searches and analyses different cultures also comparing with Vedic (vaydik, Sanskrit: वेद)) ancient culture of Asia, quite common over India to Japan passing through Tibet and China, finding outstanding curious similarities among all cultures among the globe when all where in the mythical "golden age". He compares linguistically the different languages he analyses; western, eastern, ancient Native American and other languages.
He says that with this method , used long before him by others linguist, and exploring deep in etymology, he finds impressive similarity between the myths from ethnies around the world circa the copper age, bronze age or other ancient times he refers to in his papers.
He finds links between Maya, Native American and Asian ethnicities, oral tradition and ancient cultures.
Gene D. Matlock seems to have discovered many language and culture similarities between many pre-Columbian civilizations and people from Afghanistan to far east Asia. Also giving arguments that support the idea of extensive commercial relations between pre-Columbian America with the rest of the world, long before Christ, has Matlock tries to find rather possible or not. He might be quite convinced that ancient cities from Mexican gulf to Tenochtitlan are related to some Atlántepec, Tolan, A-tolan and other TLAN like cities:
Quote:_"Should we continue our fun guessing games about Atlantis for another few millenniums? Or should we confidently begin our search for the submerged half of Atlantis from Atlántepec's (Mexico's) southeast coast? Will the ruins that we'll surely find be those of the real Atlantis?"
He believes we should be conducting the search for Atlantis in the Yucatan region of Mexico. Matlock cites place names as one of the compelling proofs:
Atlán, Autlán, Mazatlán, Cihuatlán, Cacatlán, Tecaltitlán, Tihuatlán, Atitlán, Zapotlán, Minititlán, Ocotlán, Miahuatlán, Tecaltitlán, Tepatitlán, Tihuatlán, Texiutlán, and the like. Notice that the Nahuatl Tlán root of these place names is exactly like the Tlan in "Atlantis."
He also cites an ancient, spiral-shaped harbor with high banks or dikes lining the channels that once existed near San Lorenzo Tenochtitlán, Mexico. This layout is very much like that described by Plato for Atlantis's great port city.
When Gene D. Matlock was seven years old, he became deathly sick from pneumonia. His mother prayed that if he survived, she would dedicate him to the study of theology. She never suspected Gene's studies would lead him to "no-no" conclusions not welcome in Sunday School, the mosque, and the synagogue.
Matlock says that the linguistic revelations comparing different cultures are astonishing. That we are and always have been a global community from the very beginning of civilization. He says: "When I was a young college student in Mexico, I took a course in linguistics. This course and my experiences in studying Spanish, Portuguese, Malay, and Nahuatl, taught me that a word is much more than a combination of strange sounds. Each one tells the history of the people who use it." According to Matlock, the secret surrounding the location of Atlantis -- and thus, proof that it really existed -- can be traced back to the forbidden letter.
He then tries to link everything with the ancient roots of "Panch" , Panis, Phoenicias and Hebrews, linking many things according to his research, but many scholars don't agree with this.
Modern game fictional characters like Gill (Street Fighter), and Urien (Street Fighter) are examples of the fantasy Atlantis may arise in subconcient, has it has being for many years a source of mystery and inventions.

Chichen Itza, Mayan culture, late classic, 11-13th A.D.

The site was developed between the 6th and 14th centuries. The early inhabitants (A.D. 600-900) were the Itzá, a Maya group. Chichen Itza seems to have been abandoned during the 10th century but later resettled around A.D. 1000. The second group of settlers may have been the original Itzá, Toltecs from Tula (near Mexico City), or a fusion of both groups.
Archaeologists have recognized both Maya and Toltec influences in the architecture: most believe that the Toltecs influenced the Itza, but some argue that the influence was in the other direction.
It was founded in the year 514 of our era by the priest LAKIN CHAN who was also called Itzamna. This is why their people were called since the foundation, chanes or itzaes.
The name Chichen Itza, is derived from the Mayan language: "Chi" - mouth, "Chen" - well and "Itza" - the tribe that inhabited the area. When the Spaniards arrived to Chichen - Itza, it had been abandoned as a consequence of the civil war fought with Mayapan. In between 1196 and 1441 the final collapse of this culture took place in the north of the peninsula.
The conquerors found the buildings of Chichen Itza, partially in ruins and their names and real use were unknown; this is why the present names are suppositions.

About 60% of El Castillo pyramid has been restored almost fully from the decaying condition in which it was re-discovered by John L. Stephens in 1841 although the eastern and southern faces are still partially eroded by the forces of time and erosion. There are no plans to restore these two faces of the pyramid as those that restored the other portions wish for future generations to see the condition in which it was originally discovered.

Chichen Itza is the most impressive and intact ruins of Mayan civilization that the modern world has. This now popular tourist attraction is located on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico and has fast become the best restored record of the spiritual, domestic, and agricultural lives of these people. Mayan ruins in central America, such as Chichen Itza, are remnants of cities that were abandoned long before Columbus reached the area; yet this culture has influenced many areas of architecture, art, and astronomy, that live on even in our modern world.
The Mayan people are most famous for their brilliant and advanced astronomical knowledge and their resiliency. Stone remnants of their civilization are currently being preserved at various sites in Mexico; in Tilkal, Guatemala; in Altun Ha, Belize; and in Copan, Honduras. Mayan civilization spread from their origin on the Yucatan Peninsula to the rain forests of Mexico eastward and the other surrounding countries. Today, mostly on the Yucatan Peninsula and in the state of Chiapas, Mayan culture is still thriving with four to six million people, over 30 languages, and many ethnic backgrounds represented. Modern Mayans still continue many of the traditions of their ancient culture, such as speaking their ancient dialects instead of Spanish, growing their traditional crops (corn, beans, chile, tomatoes, and squash) with the same techniques, and using herbal medicinal treatments instead of modern medicine. Many spiritual aspects of Mayan life, the purpose for their ancient cities, is still exercised with many offerings and pilgrimages to modern churches, sometimes fusing Catholicism with Mayan beliefs from antiquity.
Around 550 AD, Mayans settled Chichen (translated "the mouth of the well") around two wells; one sacred and one "profane," used for everyday use. These underground wells and subsequent waterways, known as "cenotes", were the lifeblood of the community. Chichen Itza was primarily a rain forest area settled on flat, porous limestone that rain seeped through to became trapped in the insolvent bedrock below. These cenotes were, therefore, the oasis of the society, full of rain and run off water for their living needs. Chichen Itza, like most Mayan centers, was primarily a spiritual, ceremonial site instead of a commercial area. The loose arrangement of decentralized farming communities came together for offerings, sacrifices, and ceremonies in the town. Some trade, education, and recreation were also performed there. Exhumed from the sacred well were many ceremonial objects, skulls, and entire skeletons.
Evidence suggests that Chichen Itza was abandoned by the Mayans in the tenth century. This is concurrent with evidence of all Mayan cities being abandoned around this period. The abandonment has not yet been fully explained. The Mayans returned to and resettled their cities around 1000 AD. Chichen Itza's architecture is seen to have two distinctive styles; traditional Mayan architecture, and more recent Toltec architecture. The Toltecs were another more warlike tribe who invaded Chichen Itza around the year 800 AD. The Toltecs were much more fierce than the Mayans and human sacrifice was a large part of their rituals. It is quite easy to decipher which structures in Chichen Itza were built before and after 800 AD.

Easter Island

One of the world's most famous yet least visited archaeological sites, Easter Island is a small, hilly, now treeless island of volcanic origin. Located in the Pacific Ocean at 27 degrees south of the equator and some 2200 miles (3600 kilometers) off the coast of Chile, it is considered to be the world's most remote inhabited island. Sixty-three square miles in size and with three extinct volcanoes (the tallest rising to 1674 feet), the island is, technically speaking, a single massive volcano rising over ten thousand feet from the Pacific Ocean floor. The oldest known traditional name of the island is Te Pito o Te Henua, meaning ‘The Center (or Navel) of the World.’ In the 1860’s Tahitian sailors gave the island the name Rapa Nui, meaning ‘Great Rapa,’ due to its resemblance to another island in Polynesia called Rapa Iti, meaning ‘Little Rapa’. The island received its most well known current name from the Dutch sea captain Jacob Roggeveen, who, on Easter Sunday, April 5, 1722, became the first European to visit.

In the early 1950s, the Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl (famous for his Kon-Tiki and Ra raft voyages across the oceans) popularized the idea that the island had been originally settled by advanced societies of Indians from the coast of South America. Extensive archaeological, ethnographic, and linguistic research has conclusively shown this hypothesis to be inaccurate. It is now recognized that the original inhabitants of Easter Island are of Polynesian stock (DNA extracts from skeletons have recently confirmed this), that they most probably came from the Marquesas or Society islands, and that they had arrived as early as 318 AD (carbon dating of reeds from a grave confirms this). At the time of their arrival, the island was entirely covered with thick forests, was teeming with land birds, and was the richest breeding site for seabirds in the Polynesia region. Within a matter of centuries this profusion of wildlife was destroyed by the islanders' way of life. The reasons are today eminently clear.
It is estimated that the original colonists, who may have been lost at sea, arrived in only a few canoes and numbered fewer than 100. Because of the plentiful bird, fish and plant food sources, the population grew rapidly and gave rise to a rich religious and artistic culture. However, the resource needs of the growing population inevitably outpaced the island's capacity to renew itself ecologically and the ensuing environmental degradation triggered a social and cultural collapse. Pollen records show that the destruction of the forests was well under way by the year 800, just a few centuries after the start of the first settlement. These forest trees were extremely important to the islanders, being used for fuel, for the construction of houses and ocean-fishing canoes, and as rollers for transporting the great stone statues. By the 1400s the forests had been entirely cut, the rich ground cover had eroded away, the springs had dried up, and the vast flocks of birds coming to roost on the island had long since disappeared. With no logs to build canoes for offshore fishing, with depleted bird and wildlife food sources, and with declining crop yields because of the erosion of good soil, the nutritional intake of the people plummeted. First famine, then cannibalism, set in. Because the island could no longer feed the chiefs, bureaucrats and priests who kept the complex society running, chaos resulted, and by 1700 the population dropped to between one-quarter and one-tenth of its former number. During the mid 1700s rival clans began to topple each other's stone statues. By 1864 the last of the statues was thrown down and desecrated.

The Moai statues, Easter Island
The barren lands and social strife that Admiral Roggeveen reported during his visit in 1722 make it difficult to imagine the extraordinary culture that had flowered on the island during the previous 1400 years. That culture's most famous features are its enormous stone statues called moai, at least 288 of which once stood upon massive stone platforms called ahu. There are some 250 of these ahu platforms spaced approximately one half mile apart and creating an almost unbroken line around the perimeter of the island. Another 600 moai statues, in various stages of completion, are scattered around the island, either in quarries or along ancient roads between the quarries and the coastal areas where the statues were most often erected. Nearly all the moai are carved from the tough stone of the Rano Raraku volcano. The average statue is 14 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 14 tons. Some moai were as large as 33 feet and weighed more than 80 tons (one statue only partially quarried from the bedrock was 65 feet long and would have weighed an estimated 270 tons).

The Moai statues, Easter Island
The moai and ahu were in use as early as AD 700, but the great majority were carved and erected between AD 1000 and 1650. Depending upon the size of the statue, between 50 and 150 people were needed to drag it across the countryside on sleds and rollers made from the island's trees. While many of the statues were toppled during the clan wars of the 1600 and 1700s, other statues fell over and cracked while being transported across the island. Recent research has shown that certain statue sites, particularly the most important ones with great ahu platforms, were periodically ritually dismantled and reassembled with ever-larger statues. A small number of the moai were once capped with ‘crowns’ or ‘hats’ of red volcanic stone. The meaning and purpose of these capstones is not known, but archaeologists have suggested that the moai thus marked were of pan-island ritual significance or perhaps sacred to a particular clan.
Scholars are unable to definitively explain the function and use of the moai statues. It is assumed that their carving and erection derived from an idea rooted in similar practices found elsewhere in Polynesia but which evolved in a unique way on Easter Island. Archaeological and iconographic analysis indicates that the statue cult was based on an ideology of male, lineage-based authority incorporating anthropomorphic symbolism. The statues were thus symbols of authority and power, both religious and political. But they were not only symbols. To the people who erected and used them, they were actual repositories of sacred spirit. Carved stone and wooden objects in ancient Polynesian religions, when properly fashioned and ritually prepared, were believed to be charged by a magical spiritual essence called mana. The ahu platforms of Easter Island were the sanctuaries of the people of Rapa Nui, and the moai statues were the ritually charged sacred objects of those sanctuaries. While the statues have been toppled and re-erected over the centuries, the mana or spiritual presence of Rapa Nui is still strongly present at the ahu sites and atop the sacred volcanoes.
Mystery surrounds the purpose of the ahu platforms and moai statues but even more perplexing mysteries have begun to surface from the research of scholars outside the boundaries of conventional archaeology. As previously mentioned, orthodox archaeologists believe that Easter Island was initially settled sometime around 318 AD by a small group of Polynesians lost on the open sea. Other scholars, however, have suggested that the tiny island may have once been part of far larger island and that the original discovery and use of the site may be many thousands of years earlier in time (it is known, for example, that Melanesians were journeying around the Pacific in boats as early as 5500 BC). Three researchers in particular, Graham Hancock, Colin Wilson and Rand Flem-Ath, believe that Easter Island was an important node in a global grid of sacred geography that predates the great floods of archaic times. Easter Island, writes Graham Hancock, is “part of a massive subterranean escarpment called the East Pacific Rise, which reaches almost to the surface at several points. Twelve thousand years ago, when the great ice caps of the last glaciation were still largely unmelted, and sea-level was 100 meters lower than it is today, the Rise would have formed a chain of steep and narrow antediluvian islands, as long as the Andes mountain range.” At that time, the land we now call Easter Island would simply have been the highest peak of a much larger island. The fascinating question posed by Hancock, Wilson and Flem-Ath is whether this much larger island had been discovered and settled before the melting of the ice caps.
Besides its more well known name of Rapa Nui, Easter Island is also known as Te-Pito-O-Te-Henua, meaning ‘The Navel of the World’, and as Mata-Ki-Te-Rani, meaning ‘Eyes Looking at Heaven’. These ancient names and a host of mythological details ignored by mainstream archaeologists point to the possibility that the remote island may once have been both a geodetic marker and the site of an astronomical observatory of a long forgotten civilization. Speculations about this shadowy antediluvian culture include the notion that its mariners had charted the world’s oceans, that its astronomers had sophisticated knowledge of long-term astronomical cycles such as precession and cometary orbits, and that its historians had records of previous global cataclysms and the destruction they caused of even more ancient civilizations. In his book, Heaven’s Mirror, Hancock suggests that Easter Island may once have been a significant scientific outpost of this antediluvian civilization and that its location had extreme importance in a planet-spanning, mathematically precise grid of sacred sites. He writes, “The very existence of such an ancient world grid has been staunchly resisted by mainstream archaeologists and historians – as, of course, have all attempts to relate known sites to it. Nevertheless, the definite traces of lost astronomical knowledge that are to be seen on Easter Island, and the recurrent echoes of ancient Egyptian spiritual and cosmological themes, cast doubt on the scholarly explanation that the odd name ‘Navel of the World’ was adopted for purely ‘poetic and descriptive’ reasons. We suspect that Te-Pito-O-Te-Henua may originally have been selected for settlement, and given its name, entirely because of its geodetic location.” “What we are suggesting therefore is that Easter Island might have originally have been settled in order to serve as a sort of geodetic beacon, or marker – fulfilling some as yet unguessed at function in an ancient global system of sky-ground co-ordinates that linked many so-called ‘world navels’”.
Two other alternative scholars, Christopher Knight and Robert Lomas, have extensively studied the location and possible function of these geodetic markers. In their fascinating book, Uriel’s Machine, they suggest that one purpose of the geodetic markers was as part of global network of sophisticated astronomical observatories dedicated to predicting and preparing for future meteoric impacts and crustal displacement cataclysms. The great floods of archaic myths did not result only from the melting of the ice caps between 13,000 and 8000 BC but also from two great cataclysms that occurred during and after the melting of the ice caps. These cataclysms, a planet wide crustal displacement in 9600 BC and the seven cometary impacts of 7640 BC resulted in the massive waves (3-5 miles high, traveling at over 400 miles per hour for distances of more than 2000 miles), volcanic activity and other earth changes recorded in myths all across the planet. Prior to the melting of the ice caps and these cataclysmic events, however, a great maritime civilization may have existed, with its cities along coastlines now submerged beneath the seas.

The Trylithon at Baalbeck

Baalbeck is a city in eastern Lebanon famous chiefly for its magnificent, excellently preserved Roman temple ruins. It was a flourishing Phoenician town when
the Greeks occupied it in 331 B.C. They renamed it “Heliopolis” (City of the Sun) .
It became a Roman colony under the Emperor Augustus in 16 B.C..On its acropolis, over the course of the next three centuries, the Romans constructed a monumental ensemble of three temples, three coutyards, and an enclosing wall built of some of the most gigantic stones ever crafted by man. Some tourists believe that the construction can only be attributed to extra-terrestial artwork .
At the southern entrance of Baalbeck is a quarry where the stones used in the temples were cut. A huge block, considered the largest hewn stone in the world, still sits where it was cut almost 2,000 years ago. Called the “Stone of the Pregnant Woman”, it is 21.5m x 4.8m x 4.2meters in size and weighs an estimated 1,000 tons.

The Temples In History

For centuries the temples of Baalbeck lay under meters of rubble, obscured by medieval fortifications. But even in ruin the site attracted the admiration of visitors and its historical importance was recognized.
The first survey and restoration work at Baalbeck was begun by the German Archaeological Mission in 1898. In 1922 French scholars undertook extensive research and restoration of the temples, work which was continued by the Lebanese Directorate General of Antiquities.
Baalbeck’s temples were built on an ancient tell that goes back at least to the end of the third millennium B.C. Little is known about the site during this period, but there is evidence that in the course of the 1rst millennium B.C. an enclosed court was built on the ancient tell. An altar was set in the center of this court in the tradition of the biblical Semitic high places.
During the Hellenistic period (333-64 B.C.) the Greeks identified the god of Baalbeck with the sun god and the city was called Heliopolis or City of the Sun. At this time the ancient enclosed court was enlarged and a podium was erected on its western side to support a temple of classical form. Although the temple was never built, some huge construction from the Hellenistic project can still be seen. And it was over the ancient court that the Romans placed the present Great Court of the Temple of Jupiter.
The temple was begun in the last quarter of the 1rst century B.C., and was nearing completion in the final years of Nero’s reign (37-68 A.D.). the Great Court Complex of the temple of Jupiter, with its porticoes, exedrae, altars and basins, was built in the 2nd century A.D. Construction of the so-called temple of Bacchus was also started about this time.
The Propylaea and the Hexagonal Court of the Jupiter temple were added in the 3rd century under the Severan Dynasty (193-235 A.D.) and work was presumably completed in the mid-3rd century. The small circular structure known as the Temple of Venus, was probably finished at this time as well.
When Christianity was declared an official religion of the Roman Empire in 313 A.D., Byzantine Emperor Constantine officially closed the Baalbeck temples. At the end of the 4th century, the Emperor Theodosius tore down the altars of Jupiter’s Great Court and built a basilica using the temple’s stones and architectural elements. The remnants of the three apses of this basilica, originally oriented to the west, can still be seen in the upper part of the stairway of the Temple of Jupiter.
After the Arab conquest in 636 the temples were transformed into a fortress, or qal’a, a term still applied to the Acropolis today.
During the next centuries Baalbeck fell successively to the Omayyad, Abbasid, Toulounid, Fatimid and Ayyoubid dynasties. Sacked by the Mongols about 1260, Baalbeck later enjoyed a period of calm and prosperity under Mamluke rule.
The temple complex of Baalbeck is made up of the Jupiter Temple and the Bacchus Temple adjacent to it. A short distance away is the circular structure known as the Temple of Venus. Only part of the staircase remains of a fourth temple dedicated to Mercury, on Kheikh Abdallah hill.

Temple of Jupiter

The first view the visitor has of Baalbeck is the six Corinthian columns of the Great Temple (or “Jupiter Temple”) thrusting 22 meters into the skyline. Built on a podium seven meters above the Court, these six columns and the entablature on top give an idea of the vast scale of the original structure.
The complex of the Great Temple has four sections: the monumental entrance or Propylaea, the Hexagonal Court, the Great Court and finally the Temple itself, where the six famous columns stand.
The Temple of Jupiter is one of the most impressive Temples in Baalbeck.
It measures 88×48 meters and stands on a podium 13 meters above the surrounding terrain and 7 meters above the courtyard. It is reached by a monumental stairway.
Originally surrounded by 54 external columns, most of these now lie in fragments on the ground. The six standing columns are joined by an entablature decorated with a frieze of bulls and lions’ heads connected by garlands.
The Podium is built with some of the largest stone blocks ever hewn. On the west side of the podium is the “Trilithon”, a celebrated group of three enormous stones weighing about 800 tons each.
It was decided to furnish the temple with a monumental extension of the podium which, according to Phoenician tradition, had to consist of no more than three layers of stone. The fact remains that this decision initiated the cutting, transporting and lifting of the largest and heaviest stones of all times. Not only had a wall of 13 meters in height to be composed of three ranges of stones, but in the interest of appearance the middle blocks were made of a length four times their height. Adding to this a depth equal to the height of the stones, they had to be of a volume of up to 400 cubic meters per block, corresponding to a weight of almost 1000 tons. Technically, the builders of Baalbeck proved that they could do it, since three such blocks of the middle layer are in place, but in terms of time they did not succeed – the podium remained incomplete. Nevertheless, so awe-inspiring were those blocks to all beholders ever after, that Baalbeck was known for a long time primarily as the site of the three stones, the trilithon.

Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle (also known as Devil’s Triangle and Devil’s Sea) is a nearly half-million square-mile (1.2 million km2) area of ocean roughly defined by Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and the southernmost tip of Florida. This area is noted for a high incidence of unexplained losses of ships, small boats, and aircraft..
The Bermuda Triangle has become popular through representation by the mass media, in which it is a paranormal site in which the known laws of physics are either violated, altered, or both.
While there is a common belief that a number of ships and airplanes have disappeared under highly unusual circumstances in this region, the United States Coast Guard and others disagree with that assessment, citing statistics demonstrating that the number of incidents involving lost ships and aircraft is no larger than that of any other heavily traveled region of the world.
Bermuda Triangle mystery
There is a common belief that a number of ships and airplanes have disappeared under highly unusual circumstances in the region called Bermuda Triangle. Over 100 airplane disappearances and over 1000 lives lost since 1945
Many of the alleged mysteries have proven not so mysterious or unusual upon close examination, with inaccuracies and misinformation about the cases often circulating and recirculating over the decades.
The triangle is an arbitrary shape, crudely marking out a corridor of the Atlantic, stretching northward from the West Indies, along the North American seaboard, as far as the Carolinas. In the Age of Sail, ships returning to Europe from parts south would sail north to the Carolinas, then turn east for Europe, taking advantage of the prevailing wind direction across the North Atlantic. Even with the development of steam and internal-combustion engines, a great deal more shipping traffic was (and still is) found nearer the US coastline than towards the empty centre of the Atlantic. The Triangle also loosely conforms with the course of the Gulf Stream as it leaves the West Indies, and has always been an area of volatile weather. The combination of distinctly heavy maritime traffic and tempestuous weather meant that a certain, also distinctly large, number of vessels would flounder in storms.
Given the historical limitations of communications technology, most of those ships that sank without survivors would disappear without a trace. The advent of wireless communications, radar, and satellite navigation meant that the unexplained disappearances largely ceased at some point in the 20th Century. The occasional vessel still sinks, but rarely without a trace. It should be noted that both the concept and the name of the Bermuda Triangle date only to the 1960s, and were the products of an American journalist.
Other areas often purported to possess unusual characteristics are the Devil’s Sea, located near Japan, and the Marysburgh Vortex or the Great Lakes Triangle, located in eastern Lake Ontario.

Bermuda (or “Devil’s”) Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle (a.k.a. the Devil’s Triangle) is a triangular area in the Atlantic Ocean bounded roughly at its points by Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. Legend has it that many people, ships and planes have mysteriously vanished in this area. How many have mysteriously disappeared depends on who is doing the locating and the counting. The size of the triangle varies from 500,000 square miles to three times that size, depending on the imagination of the author. (Some include the Azores, the Gulf of Mexico, and the West Indies in the “triangle.”) Some trace the mystery back to the time of Columbus. Even so, estimates range from about 200 to no more than 1,000 incidents in the past 500 years. Howard Rosenberg claims that in 1973 the U.S. Coast Guard answered more than 8,000 distress calls in the area and that more than 50 ships and 20 planes have gone down in the Bermuda Triangle within the last century.
Many theories have been given to explain the extraordinary mystery of these missing ships and planes. Evil extraterrestrials, residue crystals from Atlantis, evil humans with anti-gravity devices or other weird technologies, and vile vortices from the fourth dimension are favorites among fantasy writers. Strange magnetic fields and oceanic flatulence (methane gas from the bottom of the ocean) are favorites among the technically-minded. Weather (thunderstorms, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, high waves, currents, etc.) bad luck, pirates, explosive cargoes, incompetent navigators, and other natural and human causes are favorites among skeptical investigators.
There are some skeptics who argue that the facts do not support the legend, that there is no mystery to be solved, and nothing that needs explaining.The number of wrecks in this area is not extraordinary, given its size, location and the amount of traffic it receives. Many of the ships and planes that have been identified as having disappeared mysteriously in the Bermuda Triangle were not in the Bermuda Triangle at all. Investigations to date have not produced scientific evidence of any unusual phenomena involved in the disappearances. Thus, any explanation, including so-called scientific ones in terms of methane gas being released from the ocean floor, magnetic disturbances, etc., are not needed. The real mystery is how the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery at all.
The modern legend of the Bermuda Triangle began soon after five Navy planes [Flight 19] vanished on a training mission during a severe storm in 1945. The most logical theory as to why they vanished is that lead pilot Lt. Charles Taylor’s compass failed. The trainees’ planes were not equipped with working navigational instruments. The group was disoriented and simply, though tragically, ran out of fuel. No mysterious forces were likely to have been involved other than the mysterious force of gravity on planes with no fuel. It is true that one of the rescue planes blew up shortly after take-off, but this was likely due to a faulty gas tank rather than to any mysterious forces.
Over the years there have been dozens of articles, books, and television programs promoting the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle. In his study of this material, Larry Kushe found that few did any investigation into the mystery. Rather, they passed on the speculations of their predecessors as if they were passing on the mantle of truth. Of the many uncritical accounts of the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle, perhaps no one has done more to create this myth than Charles Berlitz, who had a bestseller on the subject in 1974. After examining the 400+ page official report of the Navy Board of Investigation of the disappearance of the Navy planes in 1945, Kushe found that the Board wasn’t baffled at all by the incident and did not mention alleged radio transmissions cited by Berlitz in his book. According to Kushe, what isn’t misinterpreted by Berlitz is fabricated. Kushe writes: “If Berlitz were to report that a boat were red, the chance of it being some other color is almost a certainty.” (Berlitz, by the way, did not invent the name; that was done by Vincent Gaddis in “The Deadly Bermuda Triangle,” which appeared in the February, 1964, issue of Argosy, a magazine devoted to fiction.)
In short, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle became a mystery by a kind of communal reinforcement among uncritical authors and a willing mass media to uncritically pass on the speculation that something mysterious is going on in the Atlantic.

Energy of Antique Temples

For a longer time I have applied myself to buildings, which have influenced human health. New knowledge has enabled me to complete some information that is why I have returned to this object.

Energy of Antique templesLike objective instrument I have made an octagonal plot of construction whereat I have demonstrated energy situation inside and outside the construction. I have chosen the octagon because it is easy to find out from it zonal configuration of two opposite walls and even zones of square and rectangular plot. Zones of circular construction can be located just as easy. In most of cases must be completed the inner raster by zones of roof. It is impossible to map them into the plan because it will become unnoticed. So we will take into account that inside a building the raster is more concentrated.
Energy of Antique templesAlong the experiments with octagonal plot I have understood the function of small circular buildings called rotundas. Semicircular outbuilding on one of them has indicated it to me. Builders of rotundas known energy quality of circular plot and when they needed an expansion of energy, they solved it by semicircular outbuilding – by apse. By the half graph of octagon can be proved the energy of apse, which we can find on ritual constructions of all kinds. The rotunda functioned so like family serve unit – people obtained there the energy. In most of churches the apses pile up energy of altars. It is interesting that apses have not the origin in basilicas but it is possible to find them even on the objects from much elder era.
For ritual construction architects chose places with larger concentration of energy, e.g. in inner bend of watercourses (graph of energy in inner and outer bend of watercourses is identical with a half of graph of octagon), in the place of crossing energy zones or above deposits of metal ores, minerals etc. Characteristic signs of certain sacred places on the world are replicate reconstructions at the identical place. On some Gothic cathedrals is evident that construction of towers was not finished. From that follows that along construction the constructors watched its energy and after achievement of planed value the mass of towers could not be magnified.
Experimentally tested finding of my research is the reality that every mass, including organisms, has its fundamental energy value. If the mass falls to contact with energy component of major charge, then takes from it energy. By organisms it is identical, cellules receive energy from inner overstrain of buildings. Physician biophysics has mentioned that cellular membrane has the capacity microfarad for square centimeter. The total area of cellular membranes creates so certain reservoir of energy for electronic of human body. It is generally known that any electronics is constructed for certain tension and a deviation of it makes breakdowns. So we can presuppose that to resembling effect will happen in human body – changes on cellules will evoke health disorders, too. From it has followed that the ritual buildings of all religions from menhirs, dolmens, cromlechs, mounds, till cathedrals, mosques, synagogues and other buildings were built for stabilization of tension on cellules and thereby for repair of human health.
Historic buildings by the influence of power stations, distribution of high voltage, large towns and other sources, obtained larger energy value than was primary proposed. Over modern buildings the designers have been not even engaged by energy of constructions. Statistics has indicated some buildings like “cancerous houses” and has called attention to some hospitals with major mortality. But that cannot be judged by empirical method, thereto will be requirement of new measuring instruments.

Energy of Antique Temples

Energy of Antique templesThe characteristic sign of Greek, Etruscan and Roman temples are the circumferential lines of vertical knurled pillars, under them central hall with the sculpture of eternal was placed. Columnar facades of antique temples are envisaged generally only like decorative architectonic component, but after my research the lines of pillars had also the energy function. Only priests could enter into the sanctuary, for gathering of believers the space in front of building was determined, where sacrificial alter was situated. On that account had been necessary the energy overstrain don´t create in the building, but in its vicinage. From the standpoint of finding, which I have described on my web sites, I can give hereto the following reading.
Energy of Antique templesEnergy components of pillars, which copy their shapes, by crossing of zones generate round the temple more thickened energy raster, in which major quantity of energy is found. It is perceptible from the graph where zones are illustrated (for lucidity interzones even energy of church interior have not be sketched). In case that pillars would have been placed under peripheral wall inside the building, the peripheral wall would create only horizontal zones and energy overstrain incurred by crossing of zones would be found inside the building. The vertical grooving of antique pillars, which has been the topic of various considerations, has its warrant. Their surface, length of zones and subsequently also the energy are thereby reduplicated. The energy effect of pillars round the temple was used probably for the first time in Egypt. It is also the part of architecture in Saint Pietro´s cathedral in Rome, where the whole length of Bernini´s colonnade are lined by pillars, which create in circular assembly room the same energy conditions like near antique temples. Another columned colonnade, but two-floored one, we can see on meeting-place of pilgrims in the middle Islam world in Mekka. The resembling colonnades are duplicated in cloisters of various sacral buildings.
Energy of Antique templesThe antiquity had contributed to advancement in energy of buildings also by apse and cupola. Though cupolas had existed in less scale already in antiquity, the pantheon in Roma with its colossal dimensions had been the first building of this kind. A cupola has appeared like most effective shape for concentration of energy, on its inner side creates utmost density of crossing zones and thereby also utmost energy overstrain. Domes of all sorts create any smallish energy effect. In the same way effective are circular and to a circle resembling ground plans of buildings. So as to the list of used energy shapes have been total, is to be mentioned even towers, which are in contact with major part of energy raster. Tips have also considerable influence on energetic of buildings, whereby I have been engaged in my web sites more detailed.
The mentioned shapes of mass, which create energy overstrain, can be followed on the architecture of sanctuaries of different religions and can be observed their evolution. Probably everything had started in Sumerian where towers and temples had been built. In Egypt there had been pyramids, temples, pillars and obelisks. The cultures, which had not have enough of means even understanding for hard constructions, had to content themselves with menhirs, dolmens, earthen mounds, circular constructions from rocks etc. The reality, that these cultures had known already “tower effect” for obtaining the energy, has indicated the erection of menhirs, in same cases more than ten meters high. Further circular buildings have validated that their architects had been acquainted with energy of mass.
We will come to the same conclusion by survey of other buildings also in distant times, which I will mention at random. Muslim mosques are characterized by cupolas, towers (minarets) and by series of pillars inside the sanctuary. Buddhist temples were built in the shape of cupola or in combination of cupola and tower. Hindu temples have tower form. On the lump of Christian buildings can be find all the shapes of mass, which generate energy profit. Which of them were built on chosen energy location is easy to determine by construction. Ritual constructions of all religions and all eras were built for accumulation of energy in their mass, which had positive influence for health conditions of believers.


Energy of Antique templesWe do not know much about menhirs, maybe only that erect rock could have served to ritual ceremonies. During past years I have published my new knowledge on megaliths that way, how they have resulted from my research, and it has been placed on www.miroslavprovod.com. The total results of experiments and new knowledge enable to carry out the appreciation of historical buildings out wider standpoints.
I have persuaded that the mass erect out of terrestrial surface obtains the energy according to the known physical effect “charge flux”, which was discovered by the English physicist Michael Faraday in the year 1824. It is indifferent if it is menhir, dolmen, cromlech, clay mound, zikkurat, pyramid, obelisk, pole, tower, or father resembling constructions. All of them obtain the energy out of energy raster by means of physical effect – charge flux. But the energy raster is not only the one source of energy, the further sources can be ore deposits creative in interaction with country rock local energy overstrain or also crossing of energy zones even long-distance sources. Some of such places are easy to find, usually alone megalithic or sacral construction there is built.
Energy of Antique templesWatercourses are the big energy sources, especially in upside, where the water moves faster. Compared to direct streams major concentration of energy occurs in meanders and in inner bends of stream, which is evoked by the concentrated energy components owing to the bend. Great deal of Hindu temples is situated on sangam, junction of two rivers, what is the especially energy place. The historical construction placed in the bend of river is usually situated on its inner side.
The mass of construction can obtain the energy together from more sources. If it had not been the locality of mineral at the place of construction, it was replaced by metals or minerals installed into the construction. In zikkurats it had been the gold statue of godhood, in pyramids metal in their tip, in antique and other sanctuaries golden statues etc. If the watercourse had not offered enough of energy, the builders of cloisters installed to the construction conduits in which the traversed water had completed the missing energy.
The accumulated energy generates in the mass of construction the separated source and its energy components imitate the shape of the construction. In some its parts can be by various formation of the mass the energy voltage of construction more increased. Circular plots, arcs, copes and cupolas function at the identical principle like the bend of watercourse – on the inner side of concentrated zone they create the major overstrain. Already the master builders of the prehistoric sanctuaries on the island Malta exploited the energy effect of rounded formation of the mass – the plot of sanctuary and its inner space were rounded.
Circular constructions from mere ditches till Stonehenge are plurality, if the energy place had the sufficient overstrain, it was adequate to demarcate the energy place by a ditch. If it were needed to complete the energy of the place, the builders piled up to its energy place a mass, whose shapes have enabled the energy regulation. The circular plots just as the bends of watercourses have major density of zones and thereby they create larger concentration of energy compared to quadrate and rectangular plots. On antique, medieval even later sacral constructions are perceptible the exploitation of energy sources like the exposure to energy place, the quantity of tips, also rounded shapes of structural constructions.
The important qualitative sign in energy of constructions is the combination of minerals. The quantity of publications has mentioned that the part of minerals for historical construction was transported from sizable distance, though another mineral was at the place of construction sufficient number. At thewww.miroslavprovod.com I have published several graphs of various masses and their combinations, where have been evident position of their energy zones and interzones. I have denominated that “bar code of mass”. The like graphs for various masses and their possible combinations I have created in the course of my research the great quantity and I have obtained the piece of knowledge that in all cases their bar codes have contrasted. Next I have not dealt with it. To obtain needed information in this way is troublesome, don´t go only about kinds of masses, but even about their proportions of their hefts. The number of combinations gradates that way to astronomic numbers.
Not all civilization could have afforded to build zikkurats or pyramids, to some cultures had to sufficed menhirs, dolmens, cromlechs or clay mounds. All constructions had functioned on uniform substances - the constructions with larger dimension of mass offered the larger power gain. From building the plurality of these constructions but follow further questions. Probably somewhere in antiquity had remained the mystery how the people had communicated between continents, what kind of method they had overruled the lingual barrier and who had all of that coordinated. The problem also remains down by which technology the people had transferred monoliths of hundred metric tones over natural obstacles at large distances or how they had used the energy of large constructions.
The creation of the large constructions had never stopped. It had passed through antiquity and Middle Ages until our era. It is unbelievable that the stately natural energy had remained hidden to attention of science, though it is found throughout around us and all organisms make use of it. We refuse perhaps wrongfully contemplation that long past cultures could have been in something more perfect.
We will understand it better when we will return 6000 years back to Sumerian, where suddenly advanced civilization had discovered, practically comparable with the civilization of antiquity. Since its evolution is not written down, Sumerians had to take a leaf out of somebody ´s book. I cannot speculate about from whom the information to Sumerians had been transferred, but I suppose that in this part of story people had made use of to us unknown energy. Zikkurats marked by all characteristic signs for the accumulation of cosmic energy suggest to it. It is repeated at pyramids, megaliths and in some further constructions.
If it seems to someone unbelievable, I recommend to repeat the experiment, which I have mentioned onwww.miroslavprovod.com. The test has argued that by means of energy raster, the rod and Morse code messages can be sent and received. Though the substance of cosmic energy is not yet known, the symbiosis of two imaginary conceptions – the rod and the energy raster – have made of them in the course of communication experiment two factors, which can be impeached no more.


It was probably in Palestineabout six thousands years ago when a man erected a first menhir. Formations of menhirs then followed, thousands was erected at places asunder substantially distant. There is not a rarity not even ten or twelve meters high over a heft of several hundreds tons. Energy of Antique templesThe biggest menhir called “Mené er Groah” near Lockmariaquer at Bretagne is 23,5 meters high. Probably at the same time or little later dolmens were built in plenitude, too. They are usually two or more large rocks, on which in some cases even 100 tons cover plate is put. It was built 2000 dolmens in India, and in Europe, Oceania and Tibet there were built also plenty. Dolmens Arabic, Palestine, Caucasian and other are known, too. More and more interesting creations of olden civilization are cromlechs whose ground plot has a form of circle and were built up from bulky rock, whereupon cover plates were put. Resembling bulky megalithic constructions were found in northern Africa, Pyrenean peninsula, Peru, Colorado and at many other places.
Clay mounds are also mysterious constructions and were built also in plurality on all continents in various sizes. At American continent they are called “Mound” and more than hundred thousands there were built. The biggest construction like this is artificial hill Silbury Hill at Europe. It is 40 meters high and its circular basis occupies a surface of two hectares. 36 millions baskets of chalk and clay was need for its erection.
Menhirs occur at many places in so far undocumented groups. A lengthwise stone heap of different sizes in dimensions about 10x 100 meters and ca 2 meters in height was piled up in spacing of late Celtic habitation on woody hill about 1,5 kilometers left hand shore of river Vltava (Czech Republic) in vertical direction to watercourse. EZ of watercourse moved all the time by a different influence of water upon the stone heap and transferred the energy to it. The similar menhirs were built probably at other places on the ground of simplicity and suitability.
Several tens of accurately surfaced cylinders from coarse-grained granite, which are situated in surroundings of Zvanovice brook near Jevany, to the east from Prague, can be also designated like menhirs. Most of these stones have identical average 120 centimeter, only some few have the average smaller. The height is variable – it moves from 30 to 70 centimeters. According a tale of local people many of those cylinders have finished on private gardens or have been broken. On adjoining hill alike mysterious objects are situated. Regular stony blocks and stones of uncertain shapes are dislocated there. All stony objects have rounded caverns full of water on their apexes.
A rock placed in energy component of watercourse has larger energy value than the watercourse. It follows that varied high stony cylinders had various energy values, so it is a regulation of energy. By the height of stones and selected time of staying there, people could have determined what quantity of energy they can draw. Stony objects placed on adjoining hill were not located randomly but they were put into EZ of watercourse. Water in their caverns took over the energy of rock. A drink of so energy modified water had a curative effect.
The iron pole in India originates from 9.century B. C., hefts 17 tons, is 16 m high thereof 7 meters is above the ground, and all consists of chemical pure iron. It is doubtless also menhir. In contrast of rock an iron has manifold larger fundamental energy value, which raises by its placing to energy component.
Energy of Antique templesUnnoticed quantity of hypothesis, whereby are these constructions substantiated, only prove that as yet we don´t know to what purpose they could have served and why people of long past civilization applied to it so much effort. From my research followed on, that menhirs, dolmens, cromlechs and clay mounds could have been used like amplifiers and storage batteries of cosmic energy with following utilization of energy for curative purposes.
The new conception for exploitation of menhirs arranges the megalithic culture to a higher evolutionary degree until have been mentioned till this time. People of that era were acquainted with strange energy and used it by unknown method. It may be the principal reason why authors of technical literature of largely description character could not have given reasons for what kind of purpose the megalithic constructions could have been built. Energy exploitation of menhirs can be considered like a first hold at the solving of following problems, which can be heap sight complicated than we could presuppose.
From the mentioned experiments follows that megalithic constructions were built for energy gain. I suppose, however, that reasons for mentioned three sorts of megalithic constructions (menhirs, dolmens and cromlechs) is impossible to judge globally. Their architects kept certainly serious reasons for the difference of constructions. It is also necessary to realize that they were built from various sorts of minerals transported in some cases from distant areas, though other minerals were sufficient numbers at near surroundings. Dolmens and cromlechs were built from various sorts of minerals, too. Every substance has its specific code, which results from distances of EZ and interzones. Other codes different from primary codes rise at combination of minerals. The same result can be reached at combinations of minerals with other substances. Constructors of megalithic buildings did not create energy values only quantitative but also qualitative. I have not been successful even with approximation to qualitative energy values because it is a matter for long-term research in furnished laboratories under collaboration of software technologists. Therefore I will restrict in next descriptions of megalithic constructions only to quantitative energy value. In cases, where combinations of minerals or another substances occur, can be speculated that architects there created also qualitative values.
I sympathize with each one, who thinks that it is incredible, because primarily I have supposed, too. Seeing that the unbelievable effects will more escalate, I consider like necessary to take a think if a prehistoric man, which we know from ancestry, can be given to connection with the advanced technique that shown megalithic constructions and also artifacts from excavations such as boomerang. This dissonance is perceptible there, and historians will be obliged to re-value a great deal of various things.
Archaeologist find in mutually distant part of our globe boomerangs as well as menhirs. Apart of Australia boomerangs were used also in northeaster Africa; they were known in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, and even in Europe. An oak boomerang, about 2.200 years old, was dug out in Holland. The oldest boomerang was found in Poland according to the radiocarbon method was its age approximately 20.300 years. In view of the fact that wood is not a very durable material, it may be assumed that long ago the use of boomerangs was quite widespread. Menhirs and the boomerang have their common ancient origin, are found on various continents, and share a high degree of technical sophistication.
Czech redactor Jan Novak has written “The aerodynamics of the boomerang is much more complex than that the aircraft wing, whose design cannot be conceived without any complex calculations or research in aerodynamic laboratories. The uplift of the aircraft wing is due to the shape of the wing that forces the air to flow faster along the upper surface than along the bottom one. A boomerang has the same profile, but the aerodynamics of this throwing tool is much more complex. The boomerang arms are at an obtuse angle and during flight they rotate around the centre of gravity that, however, is not situated at the point of the bend, but in free space a couple of inches below. Apart from the rotation, the arms perform the forward motion in the direction where the boomerang has been thrown. The arm rotating in the direction of the flight is flown over by air faster (as the speed of boomerang rotation and its forward speed add) than the other arm rotating against the direction of flight (In this case the speeds are subtracted). This results in the formation of a force that should incline the axis of rotation. Nevertheless, the issue is not as simple as that, due to an additional remarkable phenomenon called precession. This occurs with every rotating body and has the effect of attempting to keep the axis of rotation in a single direction. In this case it does not succeed, as the aerodynamic forces prevail, but it influences the flight of the boomerang so that the flight route acquires a complex curve ending at its origin. The flight properties of this primitive tool are quite extraordinary. The occurrence of a boomerang encountering thermal airflow and flying a distance of over 16 kilometres was observed”.
I would not be surprised if some sceptics would explain the boomerang as a bent branch that by pure chance exhibited the flight properties described above, and then served as a model for the manufacture of other boomerangs. Such an explanation would not stand up to the existence of boomerangs on several continents, similar to the case of menhirs. The discussion of a development of the boomerang does not come into question, as it must have been designed solely on the basis of aerodynamics, which had been instigated by the development of aircraft. Known facts indicate that the issue could only have been based on the handing over of information without knowledge of the actual principle involved. The age of Palestinian menhirs is estimated at about 4.500 years; the age of the Polish boomerang is about 20.300 years. The boomerang was used on Earth 20,300 years ago, for reasons of inadequate technical development our civilisation was unable to explain the principle of its behaviour until the nineteenth century. We may therefore assume that menhirs and their function have not yet been discovered for the very same reason.
At the appreciation of menhirs, dolmens and cromlechs from energy standpoint their evolution is perceptible. After experiences that watercourses are sources of energy, people don´t evade that individually erect rock around watercourse works a human more markedly. Next was probably the finding that the same character has a rock considerable distant from watercourse, and therefore rocks were placed around habitations. Some people got left because their rock was not energetic, and during further observation was concluded that the rock is able to obtain energy quality only at some positions. Afterwards people could have taught to identify such place, and likely was stated that tall rock provides a little quantity of energy even outside energy place, and so they tried to compensate it by larger mass of rock. Another finding could have been that tall eighty rock, which is built to energy place, has more energy.
People could have grown up to it that a rock has not the identical recuperative effect every time but only sometimes in limited time and probably they found a connection of recuperative effect with flow of water. By further observation people could have grown up to the finding that rocks the energy quickly gather and after slowly fade away. As rocks were used plenty to completion of energy, further finding could have followed on that some rocks or their combinations are preferable. Construction of large dolmens protracted the time of optimal effect, and a combination of rocks affected the quality of energy. I suppose that cromlechs generated identical conditions like dolmens, but more people could have participated of recuperative actions. The applied time of recuperative action of cromlechs was prolonged probably with energy completion by means of fires.
Hundreds of thousands of menhirs, dolmens and clay mounds placed at all continents, and manipulation with energy, which still lurks to attention of science, infers that it will not be easy to take bearings in ancestry.
