One of the great mysteries of our history is the Nazca lines, located 400 km south of the Peruvian capital, Lima. It is believed that the designs were created by people from the Nazca civilization who inhabited Peru between 200 BC and 500 BC.
Pre-Columbian geoglyphs comprise 800 giant straight lines, 300 geometric designs and 70 designs of animals and plants. Some of the shapes are too large and extend up to 370 meters long.
However, there are many who claim that the Nazca lines were created to attract aliens. According to this theory, these designs became large enough to make them visible from space, so that aliens feel attracted and visit Peru.
This would demonstrate that the Nazca civilization believed that there were extraterrestrial life forms somewhere in the Universe and created these designs to draw attention to beings from other worlds.
Although it is true that these designs are man-made, they are only visible from a considerable height. And, as if that were not enough, in 2017 a strange three-finger mummy was discovered in Nazca, which for researchers was an extraterrestrial being. But now, a group of Japanese experts has found, through the use of artificial intelligence, new geoglyphs that had no record of their existence, an idea that they existed, including a humanoid on two feet.
The Nazca Desert, located in Peru, South America, continues to amaze with its findings.
Japanese scientists have discovered 142 new geoglyphs (large earth drawings) in the desert plateau. Most of these newly discovered geoglyphs are so old that even from a height it is difficult to understand what they depict. However, if their contours are carefully delineated in white-line photographs, then unusual and often anthropomorphic (humanoid ) figures appear immediately.
The team believes that the oldest type of geoglyphs was discovered on slopes and roads that suggest they were designed as benchmarks to help guide people. The newer type was “full of ceramic fragments” and could have been used as sites of ritual ceremonies. Some of the newly discovered works are only a few meters wide, which made discovering the weak lines really difficult. It is for this reason that Professor Sakai collaborated with IBM, using the “Watson Machine Learning Accelerator” to examine a large volume of images of drones and satellites.
This artificial intelligence system discovered an ancient, very faint drawing of a humanoid being on two feet. Since the geoglyph was near a road, researchers believe it may have been a ‘route marker’. The geoglyphs cover large areas of land located between the cities of Palpa and Nazca. Some of them represent animals, objects or compact forms; Others are just simplistic lines.
Often, the composition of a geoglyph cannot be done completely at ground level. Only when one is high enough in the air can they discern the shapes of some of the designs. For this reason, the complexities of the designs were not completely realized until the planes were invented. The Japanese research team wants to continue working to discover more about the secrets of the Nazca lines, including working with IBM to find more geoglyphs. The details of the research have been published on the website of the University of Yamagata.
One of the discovered geoglyphs is particularly impressive.
It depicts a snake that has a head at each end of its body. And these heads absorb human figures.
Other exposed drawings can be seen depicting fish as well as strange geometric shapes.
Scientists at Yamagata University , Japan , led by Prof. Masato Sakai, along with specialists from IBM Power Systems, for the period 2018 – 2019, are scrutinizing the surface of Nazca and the surrounding area. Special digital equipment helps them identify barely visible land drawings.
One of the drawings depicts a strange animal, which shows a person’s feet. This animal is surprisingly dinosaur-like, with three egg-like ovals drawn over its back.
Other geoglyphs depict well-recognized animals – the lama, the eagle, the monkey and others.
For many years, drawings in the Nazca Desert have raised many questions. Why are they made? Why is it possible to see well only from a great height? What do they mean and why do some drawings depict animals and others draw incomprehensible lines or human figures?
There are also many hypotheses for these geoglyphs. Starting from being a huge ancient astronomical calendar and moving on to a message to the aliens.
The mystery of the Nazca lines continues
It was in 1927 that researchers first discovered the Nazca lines. In 1994, the Nazca lines received the status of World Heritage by UNESCO. And they returned attention in 2017 for the discovery of three-finger mummies in the area . Due to the strange shape of the skulls of these humanoid creatures, there were many who argued that aliens have visited the place in the past guided by the Nazca lines and that they were subsequently buried after their death thinking they were heavenly creatures from heaven.
However, conspiracy theorists believe that the Peruvian government is hiding the truth about the Nazca lines, so they urge researchers to study deeply about these strange bodies and drawings, since the anatomical structures of these mysterious humanoids are different from modern man.
Do you think artificial intelligence has discovered other evidence that the true objective of the Nazca lines was to guide extraterrestrial beings?
