Fibonacci Alignments —Azores Pyramid Submerged City of Poseida

Fibonacci Alignments of the Azores Pyramid & Submerged City of Poseida

by Alex Putney for

March 1, 2014

An impressive new discovery in the Azores Islands occurred in early May 2013, and was announced to worldwide media coverage on September 19th. This unusual discovery took place by sheer accident. When local yachtsman Diocleciano Silva was deep-sea fishing between São Miguel and Terceira Islands he noticed a perfectly geometric formation on his high-accuracy depth-finder device. Silva’s video of the odd sonar data reveals a large pyramid with 4 perfectly flat faces like those of the Great Pyramid.

Height estimates for the submerged Azores pyramid provided in every article on the discovery claim a figure of 60m, which is suspiciously inaccurate in light of the original high-resolution depth-finder data provided as evidence (composited above). Clearly, the depth-finder data displays the base of the pyramid sitting on a small level plain at 360′ below sea level. The apex of the pyramid is shown at just 136′ below sea level, providing for a total height of 224′ (360 – 136 = 224) or about 74m –not 60m.

Why has the global media machine repeatedly published this erroneous information on the exact height of this submerged pyramid, contradicting the obvious evidence presented?

Obfuscation of the actual height of the sunken Azores Pyramid is designed to hide its close relationship and psychoacoustic calibration to the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt. Near 74m in height, the Azores Pyramid is exactly half the original height of the Great Pyramid, at 148m. In addition, the Azores Pyramid is the same height as the Teotihuacan Pyramid in present-day Mexico,and also appears to closely match the height of the newly discovered Hummingbird Pyramid in La Maná, Ecuador!

Furthermore, the Azores Pyramid is 1/3 and the Great Pyramid is 2/3 the height of the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, at 220m. Such perfect proportional relationships displayed by ancient architectural masterworks located on various continents present stunning implications for the global networking and spacetravel capabilities of the Atlantean civilization. The World Map Stone from the La Maná pyramid, Ecuador accurately presents global coastlines with sea levels consistent with a late Pleistocene timeframe for the construction of the Azores Pyramid, La Maná pyramids, Bosnian pyramids and Gunung Padang.

The many Paleo-Sanskrit pyramids now being discovered at these new archeological sites functioned as an infrasound network displaying geopositioning and angular dimensions for harmonic resonance with the 1.45 Hz base frequency of the Great Pyramid. The Azores Pyramid was designed to resonate at a 3 Hz fundamental frequency, being the first harmonic above 1.5 Hz, while the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun is calibrated to the 0.73 Hz subharmonic. All of these structures were built for biorhythmic synchronization at precisely calibrated wavelengths that correspond to harmonics of planetary infrasound resonance.

Before the cataclysmic cometary impacts of 12,890bp that initiated the Holocene warming, sea levels were several hundred feet lower than those of today. The Azores volcanic seamounts would also have formed an island chain during that remote period of the Paleolithic, yet comprised a much larger archipelago that once included a series of islands between Terceira and São Miguel Islands.

The João De Castro seamount would have formed a round island with high cliffs on the southeastern side, while another narrow island half the size of São Miguel Island was submerged with the remains of a Paleolithic city below the newly discovered pyramid dominating it’s northernmost extension (below).

The submerged Azores Pyramid (38.22°N 26.21°W) is 3,284 miles from the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt, a distance that comprises 13.19% of the Earth’s mean circumference. This great circle alignment corresponds to 1/2 of Fibonacci #353 x 10-72(26.49…) and passes through another major holy site that is the destination of pilgrimages made from all parts of the world by devotees of the Buddha Dharma.

Buddhism is founded upon the wisdom teachings of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, whose original shrine was recently rediscovered, over 2,550 years since his departure from this plane of existence. One of many great masters of consciousness to be honored by that name, the Buddha achieved enlightenment through intensive meditation sitting below a Sacred Fig tree in what is now called Bodh Gaya in honor of the Buddha’s transcendence of ‘samsara’, the cycle of death and rebirth to which all life in the material world is bound. This special site of enlightenment also expresses a great geometric significance.

Bodh Gaya, India (24.42°N 84.58°E) is located 3,290 miles from Giza, a distance comprising 13.22% of Earth’s mean circumference. This auspicious locus is situated along the same great circle alignment that also defines the apex of the newly discovered sunken pyramid in the Atlantic Ocean. Focused infrasound at these sacred distance intervals bioelectrically enhances human health and consciousness.

Of course, the giant pyramid in the Azores Islands –submerged only 45m below sea level– must have already been identified by both military sonar scans and geo-satellite surveillance several decades ago, yet a local fisherman fortuitously stumbled upon one of the most exciting sites publicized since the major discoveries in Bosnia and Indonesia. The Portuguese military claims to be undertaking investigations that will be made public, but, conversely, continue to withhold all images and information on the site.

The 13.2% alignment of the Azores Pyramid directly links the site with another anomalous ocean bottom formation theorized to be the giant grid pattern of a sunken city, rediscovered by British aeronautical engineer Bernie Bamford and published in 2009. Bamford’s disclosure accurately identified what must constitute one of the greatest hydrological projects realized by civilization on Earth, consisting of a gargantuan grid pattern that must have been identified by military sonar scans decades ago.

This Atlantean megacity on the Madeira abyssal plain extends from 13.0 to 13.3% of the Earth’s mean circumference distance from the Great Pyramid. This geoposition conforms to the same great circle distance alignment that defines both the submerged Azores Pyramid and Bodh Gaya, India (above).

Such an ancient megacity of truly mind-boggling scale and complexity of planning defies the simplistic explanations given by media sources. A careful examination of the anomalous bathymetric data suggests this mega-structure is comprised of a huge grid-network of canals, each about 2 miles in width, that collected and distributed the total volume of at least four major rivers from the western hills.

Despite loads of disinformation from Googlebathymetry maps of the Canary Basin leave no doubt that a canal-based megacity has been located nearly 3.5 miles down on the ocean floor, in the Monaco Deep (above). The silted landscape of this megacity may have been a lowland coastal flood plain of a once-thriving continent that closely corresponds to Edgar Cayce’s descriptions of the comet-stricken Atlantean land of Poseidia, later associated in Greek mythology with the deity of the ocean depths, Poseidon.

Prior to its cataclysmic submersion 12,890 years ago, this Paleolithic city appears to have been located in the southeast of the Atlantic continent, and was apparently designed around a giant Golden Rectangle of approximately 100 x 80 miles. Once enclosing hills and low mountains on a coastal flood plain, the basic shape of the canal grid is an 80 x 100 mile rectangle that encodes a language reference.

The square has been identified as the Paleo-Sanskrit glyph for the deity Indra, representing the giant planet Jupiter that was venerated for its amplification of 33 frequencies of planetary infrasound resonance. The pyramids’ infrasonic transmissions were transduced by all electrical devices and even spacecraft.

A complex set of Fibonacci features embedded in the hundreds of miles of aligned canal works encode a Golden Rectangle enclosing 8,000 square miles, with an inset Golden Spiral that links many sacred temples apparently constructed atop existing mountains, reflecting a similar refaçading of the landscape witnessed in Bosnia, Indonesia and Ecuador. The Canary Basin city of Poseida was apparently designed with canals loosely defining a grid pattern based on 20 x 20 mile blocks that together form a 4:5 rectangle.

The site must have been carefully planned by aerial surveillance to embed a set of distinct geographical alignments that become noticeable when the latitude lines of 31° and 32° north are overlaid. The series of significant geometric alignments and relationships follow previously observed Fibonacci patterns.

A low mountain within the bounds of this Atlantean megacity is identified here as Mount Poseida, situated 3,300 miles from Giza, comprising a great circumference distance of 13.26% that corresponds to 1/2 of Fibonacci #353 x 10-72 (26.49…). The perfect placement of this peak at exactly 31.00°N suggests the site may be a refaçaded mountain temple complex that represents a very promising target for investigation by deepsea ROVs. Precision alignments among these sites, marked A through K, have been identified in a preliminary mapping of the sunken city of Poseida (above), with particular names for ease of reference:

The Golden Rectangle’s Northwest Locator is 3,301 miles from Giza, also at the resonant 13.26% distance from the Great Pyramid.Being situated at precisely 32.00°N, the distance from the Northwest Locator to Mount Poseida at 31.00°N comprises exactly 1° of latitude. A Golden Spiral radiating from the apex of the Golden Temple passes through the Western Bisector Mount and the Northern Hill Complex.

The design of the entire city of Poseida represents 3 Paleo-Sanskrit glyphs overlaid onto one another to give the short phrase: Indra ta cakra –“Jupiter endowing the era.” Imitating the turning wheel cakra glyph, the spiral glyph variation also signifies ‘the cycle, the era’, used here to reference Jupiter’s beneficial amplification of planetary infrasound resonance transduced by Poseida’s stone temples. Even though the era of Indra’s endowing ended catastrophically, Poseida’s gigantic set of canal alignments now beset on the floor of the Canary Basin still convey their embedded hieroglyphic message.

This basic phrase is echoed throughout Paleo-Sanskrit texts from every continent of the antediluvian world. Exaltation of beneficial infrasonic influences from the planet Jupiter is the most prevalent subject of hieroglyphic inscriptions on stone tablets from Caria, Italy and the Illinois Cave archive. One brief example of this sophisticated sentiment reads: “In accordance with the era endowing, workings of benefit are dwindling, 30 resonances initiating benefit, your works rescinding, deities diminishing the good.”

Edgar Cayce had revealed the complex canal-works of Poseida were constructed as a resonant water purification system utilizing quartz and calcite crystals in the bedrock for their piezoelectric transduction of infrasound. Ultra-low frequency resonance focused by the Orion pyramids of Giza, Egypt is effectively converted into a localized electromagnetic field that once purified water flowing through the canal works, bioelectrically cleansing the bodies of barefoot initiates who made direct contact with the sacred stone.

The precise 10° offset angle of Poseida’s Golden Rectangle displays perfect alignment to what was once among the highest mountain peaks on the Atlantean continent (above). Rising dramatically to a maximum height that now reaches 220′ below sea level, the Irving Seamount was skillfully indicated by Poseida’s offset alignment as a major sacred center located at the heart of the sunken landmass. This broad mountaintop likely hides another monumental complex of piezoelectric temples that cannot be easily discerned in the low-resolution bathymetry data now being made available to the public.

The Irving Seamount (32.00°N 28.06°W) is 3,472 miles from the Great Pyramid, comprising a great circle distance of 13.94% of Earth’s mean circumference. The 14% resonant distance band passes right through the Irving Seamount, Cruiser Tablemount and other mountaintops crossing major latitude lines.

While ancient literary references to the previous global civilization of Atlantis are limited to the few well known passages of Plato’s “Dialog of Timaeus and Critias”, a wealth of information has also been obtained through another very surprising source: the psychic readings of trance medium Edgar Cayce. His many decades of past life readings provided for thousands of clients contain an untapped density of verifiable information that may provide a relevant context for the Canary Basin sunken city structures discovery (Reading 288-1):

[I]n the fair country of [King] Alta, or Poseidia proper, when this entity was in that force that brought the highest civilization and knowledge that has been known to the Earth’s plane.

The gargantuan scale of the canal-works of the Canary Basin megacity represents an extremely high level of technological advancement that aligns closely with the abundance of detailed information given by Cayce to hundreds of individuals concerning their past lives during the Atlantean Era. One particular session in May of 1932 revealed details of the majestic canal works of the hilltop capitol city of Poseida that once overlooked the waters of Parfa (Reading 364-12):

Q: Describe briefly one of the large cities of Atlantis at the height of its commercial and material prosperity, giving name and location.

A: This we find in that as called Poseida, or the city that was built upon the hill that overlooked the waters of Parfa, and in the vicinity also the egress and entrance to the waters from which, through which, many of the people passed in their association with, or connection with, those of the outside walls or countries. This we find not an altogether walled city, but a portion of same built so that the waters of these rivers became as the pools about which both sacrifice and sport, and those necessities for the cleansing of body, home and all, were obtained, and these –as we find– were brought by large ducts or canals into these portions for the preservation, and yet kept constantly in motion so that it purified itself in its course; for, as we find, as is seen, water in motion over stone or those various forces in the natural forces purifies itself in twenty feet of space.

In the type of the buildings, these were much in that of tiers –one upon the other, save principally in the temples– that were about the sacred fires where these were offered, the sacrifices that were gradually builded by the people in their attempt to appease those forces in nature, and from which we find there came all those forms in the various portions of the earth in which these were carried in their necessary channels, to make for the variations in its surroundings and the conditions thereunto. In this temple, we find these of large or semi-circular columns of onyx, topaz, and inlaid with beryl, amethyst, and stones that made the variations in catching the rays of the sun. Hence a portion of same became as the sun worshippers in other portions, from which there were an egress of the peoples.

Cayce also identified the intercontinental travel and communication between various regions of a global Paleo-Sanskrit society with a single hieroglyphic language used worldwide, and a well-established global trade network with a large system of storehouses maintained in various lands (Reading 294-148):

There were also established storehouses, that would be called banks in the present, or places of exchange, that there might be the communications with individuals in varied lands; for even in this period… was there the exchange of ideas with other lands, as of the Poseidian and Og, as well as the Pyrenean and Sicilian, and those that would now be known as Norway, China, India, Peru and American. These were not their names in that particular period, but from whence there were being gathered a portion of the recreations of the peoples; for the understandings were of one tongue! There had not been as yet the divisions of tongues in this particular land. This [language division] was yet only in the Atlantean or Poseidian land. With the gathering of these people and places, there began the erecting of the edifices that were to house not only the peoples, but the Temple of Sacrifice, the Temple of Beauty –that glorified the activities of individuals, groups or masses, who had cleansed themselves for service.

Bioelectrical cleansing processes employed in these temples involved drinking Soma –sacred colloidal waters enhanced with ultra-fine gold and silver nanoparticles that effectively amplify the electromagnetic fields of the human body. While modern scientific investigation has clarified the physics of the ancient pyramid technologies, the life’s work of Edgar Cayce provides the crucial names of leaders, locations and specific circumstances that once existed in ancient times. The stark accuracy of Cayce’s work continues to be proven by major archeological discoveries now taking place in every part of the world.

The many known pyramid-building cultures of the Andean mountain range of Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia were preceded by the great Paleo-Sanskrit culture, and the existence of this predecessor is evident throughout those lands. Giant temples like Saqsaywaman in Cuzco, Peru are much older than previously suspected, having been built by an older civilization closely aligned with Poseidia. Psychoacoustic ceramic vessels were perfectly tuned in the thousands by every Andean culture, replicating the jaguar’s purr, and the wingbeats of hummingbirds.

The psychoacoustic soundscapes of Andean ceramics can be traced back to the deeper cultural heritage of a global Paleo-Sanskrit motherculture. The psychoacoustic tuning and coherent physiological effects of Andean ceramic whistles were completely unknown during Edgar Cayce’s lifetime, yet information transmitted in his readings accurately describe the ancient replication of nature’s sounds (Reading 38-1):

[I]n the land known as Poseidia, in the temple… sounds of all natures were produced upon the instruments of the day. While this peoples, as to material conditions, reached even a higher state of application of material things (hence called civilization) than even of the present day; yet the application towards material surmounted that toward the spiritual; though a form of worship was maintained through the period…

Despite the Atlantean civilization having achieved the highest level of technological advancement on Earth since the far removed Lemurian Age, Cayce’s description also relates the great classism and materialism of that powerful world nation that was brought low by cometary impacts 12,890 years ago. Astounding technical achievements of this long-lived civilization are evident in monumental constructions worldwide that enabled the infrasonic transmission of power and audio-video data (Reading 813-1):

Before that we find the entity was in that called or known as the Atlantean land, during the periods when there was much turmoil and strife from the rejections by many of those laws and tenets of One; when the upheavals began that made for the egress of many from that city of the Poseidon land –or in Poseidia the entity dwelt among those where there was the storage, as it were, of the motivative forces in nature from the great crystals that so condensed the lights, the forms, the activities, as to guide not only the ship upon the bosom of the sea but in the air and in many of those now known conveniences for man as in the transmission of the body, as in the transmission of the voice, as in the recording of those activities in what is soon to become a practical thing in so creating the vibrations as to make for television –as it is termed in the present.

Cayce’s Life Readings for inventor Nikola Tesla identified his prior incarnation in the land of Poseidia during the reign of the King Alta, before the third and final destruction of Atlantis. Readings given by Cayce in 1925 and 1934 directly linked Tesla’s advanced knowledge of electromagnetism and Vedic science principles to a previous life in Poseidia as Ax-tell, of the House of Ode (Readings 487-4, -17):

In the [incarnation] before this we find in the land of the Poseidians when the rule was in the house of Ode, and the entity then gave to that people the manner of use of the universal forces as may be applied in the way of mechanical construction in a physical plane. The entity was then known as Ode…

The entity came from the Atlantean land into Egypt when there were those periods of reconstruction in the land, and from those turmoils and strifes there arose much that made for individual and group development –and the attempt of those in the experience to foster or disseminate same; those things that were good… The entity came then, in the name Ax-tell, from those forces that were in charge of the Law of the One.

Atlantean applications of the universal forces were detailed by Cayce in an unrelated 1933 reading that included technical information concerning the advanced solid-state structures employed by Atlantean engineers for the purification and rejuvenation of human bodies by a form of fire that Tesla rediscovered as HHO plasma and effectively applied in his tri-frequency Gravity Motor invention (Reading 440-5):

[I]t was a period when there was much that has not even been thought of as yet in the present experiences… About the firestone that was in the experience did the activities of the entity then make those applications that dealt with both the constructive and destructive forces in the period… In the center of a building, that today would be said to have been lined with non-conductive metals, or non-conductive stone –something akin to asbestos, with the combined forces of… non-conductors…

The building above the stone was oval, or a dome wherein there could be or was the rolling back, so that the activity of the stone was received from the sun’s rays, or from the stars; the concentrating of the energies that emanate from bodies that are on fire themselves –with the elements that are found and that are not found in the earth’s atmosphere. The concentration through the prisms or glass, as would be called in the present, was in such a manner that it acted upon the instruments that were connected with the various modes of travel, through induction methods –that made much the character of control as the remote control through radio vibrations or directions would be in the present day; though the manner of the force that was impelled from the stone acted upon the motivating forces in the crafts themselves.

There was the preparation so that when the dome was rolled back there might be little or no hindrance in the application direct to the various crafts that were to be impelled through space, whether in the radius of the visioning of the one eye, as it might be called, or whether directed under water or under other elements or through other elements.

The preparation of this stone was in the hands only of the initiates at the time, and the entity was among those that directed the influences of the [infrasonic] radiation that arose in the form of the rays that were invisible to the eye but that acted upon the stones themselves as set in the motivating forces –whether the aircraft that were lifted by the gases in the period or whether guiding the more pleasure vehicles that might pass along close to the earth, or what would be termed the crafts on the water or under the water.

These, then, were impelled by the concentrating of the rays from the stone that was centered in the middle of the power station, or power house (that would be termed in the present).

In the active forces of these the entity brought destructive forces, by the setting up –in various portions of the land –the character that was to act as producing the powers in the various forms of the people’s activities in the cities, the towns, the countries surrounding same. These, not intentionally, were tuned too high –and brought the second period of destructive forces to the peoples in the land, and broke up the land into the isles that later became the periods when the further destructive forces were brought in the land.

Through the same form of fire the bodies of individuals were regenerated, by the burning –through the application of the rays from the stone, the influences that brought destructive forces to an animal organism. Hence the body rejuvenated itself often, and remained in that land until the eventual destruction, joining with the peoples that made for the breaking up of the land –or joining with Belial at the final destruction of the land…

As to describing the manner of construction of the stone, we find it was a large cylindrical glass (as would be termed today), cut with facets in such a manner that the capstone on top of same made for the centralizing of the power or force that concentrated between the end of the cylinder and the capstone itself.

As indicated, the records of the manners of construction of same are in three places in the earth, as it stands today: in the sunken portions of Atlantis, or Poseidia, where a portion of the temples may yet be discovered, under the slime of ages of sea water –near what is known as Bimini, off the coast of Florida. And in the temple records that were in Egypt, where the entity later acted in cooperation with others in preserving the records that came from the land where these had been kept…

Cayce’s remarkable recounting of the rejuvenatory function of the piezoelectric firestone installations of the Atlantean power system presents several links to sites in other parts of the world where crucial evidence remains undiscovered to the present day. The great depth of the Madeira abyssal plain of the Canary Basin severely limits access to the Poseida canal-city sites, yet other submerged Atlantean structures are also to be found in more accessible locations.

Maritime archeology off the Florida coast has indeed uncovered the megalithic remains of an ancient Atlantean road that has been censored by decades of corporate media disinformation programming. Just as Cayce had stated in trance, the Bahamas megalithic Bimini Road site was discovered in 1968 –an astounding 35 years after the Sleeping Prophet had made the claim. Cayce also gave the specific year of 1968 for the date when Atlantis would “rise again”, although this metaphor is often misunderstood.

Exploration dives in the vicinity of the primary Bimini Road formation have uncovered a host of other artificially constructed features below depths of 100, including hundreds of coral-encrusted megalithic building blocks, large sets of columns, fluted marble building foundations and further stretches of megalithic roadways that have been exposed from beneath the constantly shifting sandbeds (above).

This closely related group of submerged Paleolithic stone construction sites has grown to include several locations near the Bimini Road, especially at Andros Island, Cay Sal Bank and the Moselle Shoals megalithic platform. Sonar scanning has also discerned a series of rectangular building foundations that apparently comprised an ancient harbor with entirely discernable breakwater formations, as well as multitudes of stone anchors and various megalithic circular structures that likely served as mooring sites.

The geoposition of Bimini also corresponds closely to the Fibonacci ordered distribution pattern observed at all pyramids, temples and sacred sites worldwide. Bimini Road, Bahamas (25.62°N 79.31°W) is 6,454 miles from the Great Pyramid, comprising 25.93% of the mean global circumference. Focused infrasound rumbling at this resonant 26% great circle distance often perturbs residents in McCalla, Alabama and Ranchlands, Alberta –and has even induced spontaneous piezoelectric fires in Homosassa, Florida.

Much of the information recorded in the Akashic field readings of Edgar Cayce concerning the sunken Atlantean lands has been confirmed by underwater scientific exploration in diverse regions of the world. The near-surface Azores Pyramid and Bimini harbor were built by the same culture who masterfully planned and executed the construction of the deeply submerged canal-city of Poseida. The sophisticated technological monuments of our ancestors lay dormant on the continental shelf, awaiting the sudden glaciation that will lower sea levels to expose their magnificence once again, as Cayce predicted.

A fierce embodiment of Earth: The Mayan structure used for direct dialogue with the gods

Scientists at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) working in Guatemala have found evidence of the ritual significance of the classic Maya pairings. They found a structure the likes of which had never been found in Mesoamerica.

According to EurekAlert, archaeologists visited the city of Ksultun, where an ancient bathhouse was found earlier. She received the name Los Sapos. Scientists have long known that the Maya built a kind of steam room – their baths, according to their principle of operation, were designed for profuse sweating.

These baths were believed to have religious significance. They also sent here for treatment, brought women in labor. However, new research showed that the importance of such structures was even more important. The fact is that the Los Sapos bath, dating from the early classical period (250-550 AD), turned out to be unlike any other ancient Mesoamerican bath.

The researchers concluded that this was not just a place for direct dialogue with the gods. The Maya considered this bath itself an amphibian goddess. Outside, near the entrance to it, scientists found an image of this little-known deity. The goddess is depicted squatting with legs on which iguanas and reed toads sit.

“No other structure in Mesoamerica – a bathhouse or anything else – is like this building,” says STRI archaeologist Ashley Sharp. the amphibian that personified this bath.”

According to lead author of the study, Mary Clarke, the name of this goddess remains undeciphered, although it is written next to the image. Preliminary analysis of the inscription led scientists to speculate that this goddess was responsible for the cycles of pregnancy. The connection between the ideas of the birth of children and the figures of reptiles is often traced in the Maya of the classical period.

She also noted that the Los Sapos baths have been actively used by the Sultun community for about 300 years. But then something important and frightening happened. The fact is that in the “doorway” archaeologists unearthed the remains of an adult man who was buried there around 600 AD.

The analysis showed that after that no one used the bath for another 300 years. Only three centuries after the funeral, someone re-entered this structure. It is interesting that this person or several people had a strictly defined goal – they dug out a burial place and took with them part of the remains.

The rest of them they put in another place, and in the vacated grave they lit a fire. Subsequently, they repeatedly put various offerings to the gods in this grave. Dogs, birds, reed toads and iguanas were sacrificed. Archaeologists found the remains of a child in this pit, as well as numerous stone tools and ceramic shards.

“Archaeologists often find clusters of artifacts that were probably dedicated to places of worship, but rarely is there such an obvious connection between artifacts and objects,” Sharpe says. “From the image on the outer wall of Los Zapos, we know it was a ‘steam room’ “It was a rare occasion for us to associate offerings with the role that this structure played in the life of the community.”

According to the authors of the work, the offerings were probably an attempt to seek help from the goddess who personified Los Sapos. Moreover, it could even be the last attempt to please a supernatural being and prevent the loss of their lands, which were abandoned shortly after the Mayan collapse in 900 AD.

“This supernatural figure is the fierce embodiment of Earth,” Clarke concludes. “When she is unhappy, she can take revenge or deny people the things they need to survive. they negotiated with this goddess for their survival. “

Secrets of the Forbidden City are being solved by modern archaeologists

If we compare the millennia during which palaces were built and restored in China with an epic novel, then the Forbidden City in Beijing is its last impressive chapter.

An exhibition celebrating the 600th anniversary of the completion of the Forbidden City opened in Beijing on September 10.

The previous pages of this story, although no less amazing, were partially or even almost completely lost during the rise and fall of dynasties and turned into ruins, similar to archaeological puzzles. Experts are still solving them. However, in the heart of Beijing, there is a 720,000-square-meter palace complex built of wood and clay bricks – the last surviving structure of its kind in the world. This area, which served as an imperial palace from 1420 to 1911 and where 24 emperors once lived, celebrates 600 years since the completion of construction this year.

In honor of this event, the Umen Gate galleries at the entrance to the Imperial Palace Museum became a kind of lobby, where visitors to the exhibition “Eternal Splendor: Six Centuries in the Forbidden City” enter. It will run until November 15th.

“There is so much that has happened in 600 years that can be said,” says Zhao Peng, director of the museum’s architectural heritage department and chief curator of the exhibition. “It is best to focus on the ‘city’ itself, that is, on architecture: to understand how this place was formed and modified … This is the crystallized wisdom and talent of the ancient Chinese. “

Yet it is not easy to select just 450 items, including structural elements and imperial relics, to reveal a panorama of such architectural splendor. In order to chronologically show how the complex originated, expanded and developed with the help of the exhibits, 18 significant years were selected from the entire centuries-old history. 

“These time periods help to see a fuller historical picture,” Zhao says.

In 1406, Zhu Di, the third emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), proposed to move the capital from Nanjing (today it is the administrative center of Jiangsu Province) to Beijing in order to better guard the northern borders. Zhu Di himself lived in Beijing as a prince.The Forbidden City was built according to rules derived from centuries of Chinese history.

The construction was completed in 1420, after almost ten years of preparation and three years of active work. The following year, the capital was officially moved to Beijing.

“A striking feature of the Forbidden City is how, despite the changing eras, certain architectural forms are strictly adhered to,” Zhao says. “This reflects traditional Chinese thought that emphasizes the importance of ritual and harmony between people and the sky.”

The Forbidden City was built according to rules derived from centuries of Chinese history. The exhibition presents “Notes on the Study of Crafts” (Kaogongji) – a treatise that spells out the basics of building a palace. It was published during the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) and is part of the classic Chinese work Zhou Rituals (Zhouli) on rituals and notions of order.

“Notes on the Study of Crafts” regulate the symmetrical layouts of the capital cities, in the center of which on the north-south axis should be a palace. The historic districts of modern Beijing, including the Forbidden City, fully comply with this rule.

“Finally, this ideal layout, which has been guided for nearly 2,000 years, has been faithfully embodied in Beijing,” Zhao says.

Following the rituals is reflected in the architectural details.

For example, only the roof of the Hall of Higher Harmony – the most prestigious structure in the palace, where the most important ceremonies took place – can be decorated with ten figures of deified beings. The simpler the roof is decorated, the lower the status of the building.

The Hall of Supreme Harmony also has 11 rooms – more than any other building in the complex. (In ancient Chinese architecture, a room was a square space between four columns.)

Roof shape is another important indicator by which you can determine the status of a building. For example, the roof of the Hall of Higher Harmony is four-pitched and two-tier, its ends protrude and bend upwards. Only buildings of the highest status can have such a roof.

In 1734, Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) issued an official guide to the construction of palaces. The book, which is over 2,700 pages, spells out all the architectural criteria, including the size of the columns and the decoration of the roofs. According to Zhao, this is an important milestone in the history of the fusion of rituals with Chinese architecture.

The Forbidden City in Beijing has two older brothers. When Zhu Yuanzhang founded the Ming Dynasty and became emperor, he made the capital of his hometown, which is today in Fengyang County, Anhui Province. However, the construction of a huge palace complex for unknown reasons suddenly stopped, and Zhu Yuanzhang decided to build an imperial city in Nanjing.

Both imperial cities fell into ruins, but some important details have survived to this day, such as stone fences and tiles in the galleries of the Umen Gate. They help to imagine what the early architecture of the Forbidden City might have looked like.

“The original appearance of buildings can often be seen in the paintings,” says the deputy director of the architectural heritage department of the museum, Di Yajing.

No matter how the new emperors followed the precepts of their ancestors, it is clear that they wanted to decorate their new home. “The Ming emperors preferred simple yet stately architecture, and therefore large buildings were built during their reign,” Di says. “However, the Qing emperors tended to be more sophisticated.”To understand whether the pictures correspond to historical reality, you need to conduct additional checks

Sometimes this was a forced decision, since it was difficult to find giant pieces of valuable timber to renovate the palace. However, the Qing emperors demonstrated their wealth and status with handicrafts of the most skillful work. Thanks to Emperor Qianlong (1711-1799), who adored fine arts, this trend reached its peak. In 1766, he ordered the construction of the Palace of Serenity and Longevity in the Forbidden City, where he planned to live after leaving the throne. The garden of this palace has become a real treasure trove of exceptional decorative objects.

The lacquered gauze fabric, which used to be placed on the window, allows visitors to appreciate its uniqueness, because the garden has never been opened to the public before. The decor of this silk combines techniques such as paper cutting, gilding, dyeing and varnishing. This means that several artisans worked on its creation at once. 12-ply fabric is paper thin.

“We tried to replicate this decor, but even modern manufacturing techniques did not help us,” Dee says. “This lost technique reminds us that cultural heritage must be carefully preserved.”

Complex renovation of the main buildings of the complex has been going on since 2002. Although it was originally planned to be completed by a round date this year, in the end the architects decided not to rush to complete the work with full responsibility and respect for history.

From “living” runes to a hologram. Ancient technologies are making a comeback

Human civilization develops thanks to accumulated knowledge. Without knowledge and experience, there is no movement forward to progress. People make discoveries, bring them to life and pass this information on to subsequent generations. The most faithful and reliable storage is memory. But, unfortunately, it is limited to the framework of one human life or generation.

Therefore, in past centuries, when people were closer to each other, the continuity of generations was maintained. Wisdom was passed down orally: from grandfather to father, from father to son. So, epics and legends were composed. The image embedded in them was able to live for centuries. After all, only that which is felt is remembered. All events in the senses are imprinted with all the multifaceted connections.

We can say that feeling is a kind of “hard drive” that is turned on with the help of a computer brain.

In that distant era, when our ancestors lived in harmony with themselves and nature, they had developed imaginative thinking. Sounds had a special meaning because they created reality. But the means for transmitting information or extracting it from the past were musical instruments. Each of them had its own purpose. With the help of some, people remembered their past lives, others were introduced into an altered state of consciousness, in which it was possible to perform miracles.

Various folk tales have preserved the legends of “magic words” that open doors and launch flying ships. The Byzantine chronicles say how the northern people came to negotiations without weapons, holding only a folk psaltery in their hands. The sounds drawn from the strings decided the outcome of the negotiations.

Runes – the first material carrier


At this level of interaction with information, any drawn symbol had a magical effect. The ancestors called these signs – Runes. Not everyone could “work” with them. Due to the ability to materialize thoughts instantly, only initiates had access to them. For everyday needs, they used features and cuts that did not have such tremendous power. As the spiritual decline and loss of skills, it was necessary to create books, but they were so amazing that for a modern person they seem completely fantastic.

Ancient stereo books

These were ordinary pre-Christian books, which were then burned as a devilish “black book”. Although they had nothing to do with the devilry. Their whole secret was the ability of our ancestors to use bioenergetics.

Such books have been carefully crafted for centuries. Every detail of her material had to have certain physical qualities.

The text of the future book was first written down with a metal stylus on wax-covered boards, where any corrections could be made. It is impossible to write straight away. Trying to accurately convey his thought, the author “runs after her”, not worrying about spelling. The well-known expression “to spread the thought along the tree” comes from there.

Nevertheless, the main thing in the creation of the book was not the author, but a scribe who would have had imagination and such body cells that emit bioenergy. In this case, all the pictures that appear in his imagination, together with the biocurrents, are absorbed into the parchment as on a film strip. The effect of titles is created, as if hanging in the air between a person and those living pictures that the suede parchment has absorbed. For these purposes, it was manufactured in a special way. As well as cinnabar for writing.

Stereo book

Then the sheets of parchment were stitched like modern thick notebooks with a metal spiral on the spine. The cover was made of bog oak boards. Its name was engraved on the cover. To make it better read, silver and niello were poured into the grooves of the letters. At the same time, the same massive oak-copper case was made for the book, closed with copper clasps.

Incredibly, the natural ingredients and techniques used in this book produced a 3D effect. The only difference is that a modern person needs special glasses, and our ancestors developed such abilities. It’s just that some could emit biocurrents, while others perceive them. In short, living people were transmitters and receivers.

Gold and stone discs – the prototype of modern discs

In addition to such wonderful books, there were also discs that contained a huge layer of information in a compressed form. Perhaps they are “read” in the same way as “miracle books”, but it is possible that there was a certain computer into which these disks could be inserted.

In any case, according to the first version, attempts were made to decipher the Phaistos disc, a phenomenon that made a lot of noise at one time. It was discovered that the disc contains layered information. It cannot be read like an ordinary letter.

The hologram is the library of the future

With the advent of Christianity, all ancient knowledge and skills were declared devilish, and the possessors of these abilities were witches and sorcerers. Both books and people were burning in the bonfires. In order to preserve the rest, the manuscripts were rewritten, but already in an ordinary linear letter. Of course, distortions were inevitable and the picture of past events, presented in this way, did not correspond to reality.

Pen books have proven to be a rather primitive way of conveying information. Although, for many centuries, they remained a guiding thread for knowledge. And yet, as we can see, important discoveries were and are being made as a result of practical research, often thanks to insight, which proves the existence of an information field, from where you can get the necessary information. 


Now, humanity is approaching again the stage when the need for the usual carriers of information will disappear. Everything will be transferred to a virtual memory base. But if earlier holograms were created and accepted by people themselves, now machines will do it for us.

In the event of another disaster, we will lose access to the electronic library. And then everything will have to start over. And our descendants, just like we are now, will believe that at this period people were illiterate, because they did not have a written language …
