A posting before I lose track of the story shared from “one of those facebook pages”…this is a section of ancient Egyptian art depicting, if you look closely, what appears to be an Alien Grey in the Valley of the Kings, Egypt* (This is not photoshopped. It is a well known piece of art)

“The ancient Egyptians were artists and meticulous chroniclers of history. They adorned the walls of the tombs of the mighty with a record of the great person’s life, deeds, accomplishments. The paintings on the walls of the tomb also recorded for the gods the worthy one’s relationships and momentous occasions. Especially relationships with the Sky Gods and the meetings between gods and humans.
The sensational discovery of an extraterrestrial depicted by ancient Egyptian artist-chroniclers is not unique. Other such finds have been alluded to by researchers for more than 120 years. This is the first, however, that’s been smuggled out of the research archive division of the Egyptian Antiquities department of the governmental authorities in Cairo. Other examples are claimed to be in the British Royal Museum of Natural History. If true, the London curator and staff are not talking.

Some information that found its way to the public was of little consequence except to researchers of the arcane. Other information, however, is potentially world-changing, like the paintings of aliens that adorn some tombs of the ancient Egyptian kings.”

So whaddya think?

Older than Stonehenge. Older than ancient Sumer. Older than Egypt. Possibly the oldest known religious structure in the world. Yet Gobekli Tepe is probably one of the least known sites in modern archaeology.

Located in south Anatolia, or modern-day Turkey, near the town of “Sanli’urfa” and about 350 miles west of Mount Ararat, Gobekli Tepe is believed to have been constructed between 11,000 to 12,000 years ago. Egypt, home of the great pyramids, and Sumer home of the Akkadians and the birthplace of agriculture and writing, have been dated to approximately 3100 BC and 2100 BC respectively. Yet Gobekli Tepe has been found to be at least 5000 years older, dated to 9500 BC. There is a life-sized statue of limestone that was found in Urfa, at the pond known as Balikli Göl, and this has been carbon-dated to 10,000–9000 BC, making it the earliest-known stone sculpture ever found.

Urfa, previously known as Edessa, located in an oasis, at the head of a spring which leaves town to join the Euphrates River, is possibly the town known as Ur in the Bible. Some have theorized that it might even be the site of the Garden of Eden. The name “Gobekli” means navel, and the term “tepe”, hill. Some have called it “the navel of the world”. It is currently the site of the oldest archaeological dig on the planet, and believed to be the first ante-diluvian (pre-Flood) site ever discovered. Gobekli is also older than any site in South America, and it would hypothetically even pre-date Atlantis, which was said to have been destroyed by the great Deluge.

Gobekli is also older than ancient Crete. However some of the stone structures have similarity to those of the Minoan civilization. There are also other sites in Turkey which have been compared to Gobekli. gobekli tepe_reconstructionThe most famous of these sites is Çatal Höyük. It was discovered in 1958 by British archaeologist James Mellaart, who began excavations in 1961 and eventually dated the site to 7500–5700 BC. Çayönü, located around 96 kilometres from Göbekli Tepe, has been dated to 7500–6600 BC. Neval Cori shares many parallels with Göbekli Tepe, such as the T-shaped pillars and is dated to 8400–8000 BC. Until these sites were discovered in Turkey, the oldest known city was thought to be biblical Jericho, in Israel, whose age was pushed back to 8000 BC.

What makes Gobekli Tepe distinctive, and makes the association to nearby Mount Ararat, is the presence of animal carvings on the T-columns. In this one location, are carvings of boars, bulls, foxes, reptiles, lions, crocodiles and birds, as well as insects and spiders. One column depicts several geese, caught in what seems to be a woven net. It brings to mind the story of Noah’s Ark, and the effort to capture all the animals to be put on board. The site is constructed, with circular “rooms” and the evenly spaced T-columns throughout, decorated with the engravings almost like the banners we see announcing exhibits at modern-day museums. Is it possible this ancient storyboard commemorated the feat of preservation of animal life Noah accomplished after the great Flood? The Hebrew Bible states that the very first thing Noah did when he landed and was safe was build an altar to God. (Genesis Chapter 8 Verse 20.)

But the myth of a Great Flood is universal, and not just a biblical tale. The individual called Noe, or Noah in the Bible, is known by many other names. In Sumer: King Ziusudra; Babylon: Utnapishtim; Greece: Deucalion; China: Yu; India: Manu; Scandinavia: Bergelmir; Welsh: Dwyfan; East Africa: Tumbainot; Mongolia: Hailibu….EVERY civilization on the face of the Earth has a flood myth and a flood hero, and even the tale of Atlantis recounts the destruction of an advanced civilization which is submerged into the ocean. And the presence of human sacrifices at the sites adjacent to Gobekli, support the moral implications of the destruction of righteous destruction of a humanity gone awry.

Interestingly, the Bible recounts that following his successful survival of the destruction of the rest of humankind, Noah was the first man to practice cultivation and agriculture. It is said he was the first tiller of the soil, and the first to plant a vineyard and create wine. (Genesis 9:20-21) Granted that agriculture was first attributed to civilizations such as the Summerians’in the Tigris Euphrates River Valley, it’s interesting that Sanliurfa was located at the headwaters of the Euphrates. And depicted on a column at Gobekli Tepe, is what appears to be the image of a scythe — the tool which cuts grain or tills the earth. What better a tribute to Noah, “the first tiller of the soil”.

A little while back, I mentioned that part of my purpose in keeping this blog, was to preserve some of the more unusual links I come across…the weird stuff!

Here’s one. An ancient burial place in the desert of Xinjiang Province, China, just north of Tibet, has revealed bodies which were because of the unusual environmental conditions, naturally mummified, basically freeze-dried. What is also unusual, is that although the burial place is located north of China, the interred remains have Caucasion facial features. And apparently wooded forests existed at the time, because the graves are surrounded by a tall fence of wooden poles, similar to some of the wooden henges in Great Britain. Stranger yet, each grave is covered by an overturned wooden boat, and some of the wooden stakes nearby resemble long oars with paddle blades painted red and black. Wood and boats in the middle of a high desert in south Siberia?

Those factors almost override the initial shock that the bodies mummified at the Small River Cemetery in the Tarim Basin are almost 4000 years old. And yet you can see the shape of their faces, and even the facial tatoos, and hair and textiles are still well-preserved.

All the men who were analyzed had a Y chromosome that is now mostly found in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Siberia, but rarely in China. The mitochondrial DNA, which passes down the female line, consisted of a lineage from Siberia and two that are common in Europe. Since both the Y chromosome and the mitochondrial DNA lineages are ancient, Dr. Zhou and his team conclude the European and Siberian populations probably intermarried before entering the Tarim Basin some 4,000 years ago.

At the foot of each pole there were indeed boats, laid upside down and covered with cowhide. The bodies inside the boats were still wearing the clothes they had been buried in. They wore large woolen capes with tassels and leather boots. They had felt caps with feathers tucked in the brim, uncannily resembling Tyrolean mountain hats.

One, called “Cherchen Man,” was 6 feet, 6 inches tall. Dated to about 1,000 B. C., his light brown hair surrounds a face on which yellow paint forms
a rayed-spiral that extends from his right temple across his nose to the other temple. Hundreds of other light-skinned, fair-haired mummies have also been found in the Tarim Basin, along with advanced tools and dolmen burial mounds and circles of stone.

No….I haven’t gone off the deep end.

I’m as skeptical about the paranormal and ancient civilizations and advanced technologies as any rational person would be, I believe! lol.

But sometimes it is these unexplained things we come across, that add a sense of mystery in life. And sometimes some explanations for unexplained things, make more sense than others.

Here in this video about Egyptian pyramids, it’s mentioned that there is an underground aquifer below one of the main pyramids at Giza. A similar aquifer is found below the Bosnian pyramid. Is this coincidence?

Take a look for yourself and see if you discover anything new here…Also discussed is the use of electricity in the design and construction process.

The quadrivium – the classical curriculum – comprises the four liberal arts of number, geometry, music, and cosmology. It was studied from antiquity to the Renaissance as a way of glimpsing the nature of reality. Geometry is number in space; music is number in time; and comology expresses number in space and time. Number, music, and geometry are metaphysical truths: life across the universe investigates them; they foreshadow the physical sciences.

Quadrivium is the first volume in many hundreds of years to bring together these four subjects. Composed of six successful titles in the Wooden Books series (Sacred Geometry, Sacred Number, Harmonograph, The Elements of Music, Platonic & Archimedean Solids, and A Little Book of Coincidence) – it makes ancient wisdom and its astonishing interconnectedness accessible to us all today.

Beautifully produced in six different colours of ink, Quadrivium will appeal to anyone interested in mathematics, music, astronomy, and how the universe works.

A mysterious undersea pyramid structure off the coast of Japan causes controversy – is this a natural geological phenomena or a man-made structure which changes the history books as we know them?

In 1986, a diver near the island of Yonaguni Jima, off the southern tip of Japan (around Okinawa) came across some strange structures about 25 metres below sea level.

They appeared to be stepped structures with terraces and ramps.

One of the largest pyramid structures is 600 feet wide and 90 feet high –with five separate levels of stone blocks with what appears to be road surrounding the structure.

Tool marks and carvings have been discovered upon the stones (and documented) which indicate that they have were constructed rather than being natural stone structures.

Masaaki Kimura, a marine geologist from Japan’s Ryukyu University, Japan, has been studying and mapping the site for over 15 years and believes that the site is over five thousand years old – but was sunk during an earthquake two thousand years ago.

Others have estimated that the structure is far older – including Teruaki Ishii, professor of geology at Tokyo University who%2

Almost everything they teach us about the ancient history is wrong: origin of men, civilizations and pyramids. Homo sapiens sapiens is not a result of the evolution and biologists will never find a “missing link”, because the intelligent man is product of genetic engineering. Sumerians are not the beginning of the civilized men, but rather beginning of another cycle of humanity. And finally, original pyramids, most superior and oldest, were made by advanced builders who knew energy, astronomy and construction better than we do.

In order to understand the ancient monuments, we need to view them through three realms: physical, energy and spiritual. Our scientific instruments are simply not enough to explain the purpose of oldest pyramids, for example. Mainstream scientists, archaeologists, historians and anthropologists, are often main obstacle for scientific progress.

Gap between physical and spiritual science is to be bridged if we want to get fully understanding of the past.

Twelve hundred ton stone block in Baalbeck (Lebanon) needs explanation. Who was able to shape, move and install four times bigger blocks than our, 21st century, capabilities? Yonaguni megalithic monuments (Japan) do belong to the previous cycle of humanity. Th
