Who Crafted The 2.8 Billion-Year-Old Klerksdorp Spheres?

2.8 Billion-Year-Old Spheres well balanced within one-hundred thousandths of an inch from outright excellence have actually produced confusion amongst specialists.

They differ in size from 30– 50 mm in size and have completely concentric grooves around the center as if they were formed. Inside the tough “ shell ” some have a spongy compound, while in others it looks like charcoal.

Manufactured Artifacts, or the outcome of nature?

Called the Klerksdorp spheres, the enigmatic artifacts are thought about by numerous authors as the supreme proof of pre-human civilizations existing on Earth billions of years earlier.

Nevertheless, offered their questionable age, mainstream scholars argue they are the item of nature.

The Spheroid items discovered in Africa go back to a time when people did not exist on Earth. The secret items are elliptical fit with rough ridges around the center.

Having curious ‘style’ components on their surface area, some authors have actually argued that the enigmatic spheres are the outcome of smart style.

Inning Accordance With Michael Cremo, likewise understood by his devotional name Drutakarmā dāsa, is an American freelance scientist who determines himself as a Vedic creationist and an “ alternative archaeologist ”-RRB- and other scientists of ancient culture, these spheres contribute to a body of proof recommending smart life existed on Earth long prior to a traditional view of history puts it here.

Recommendations that Earth was occupied by various lifeforms in the far-off past, millions if not billions of years earlier, has actually produced many argument amongst scientists and authors.

Tests carried out on the spheres have actually yielded questionable outcomes.

Inning Accordance With Biblioteca Pleyades, a male called John Hund who got among the spheres took it to the California Area Institute at the University of California in order to learn more about the curious artifacts.

“ It ended up that the balance is so great, it surpassed the limitation of their determining innovation,” and these are the people who make gyrocompasses for NASA.

Nevertheless, this declaration was later on deducted by the California Area Institute which rejected that anybody informed Hund that the things had the amazing residential or commercial properties.

The secret sphere gotten by Hund is stabilized to within one-hundred thousandths of an inch from outright excellence.

No one understands exactly what these stones are.

One NASA researcher informed Hund that they do not have the innovation to produce anything as carefully stabilized as this.

Hund stated the only manner in which either nature or human innovation might produce something so carefully well balanced would remain in absolutely no gravity.

A letter from Mr. Hund, offered by Biblioteca Pleyades provides more information about the enigmatic items:

The presence of the sphere concerned my attention ca 1977 while getting rid of threatened rock inscriptions from the website where pyrophyllite or “ wonderstone ”, as it is frequently understood in the area, is mined on the farm Gestoptefontein (significance plugged water fountain) near the little town of Ottosdal about 110 km from Klerksdorpin South Africa ’ s Northwest Province.

I was interested by the type of the spheres, grooves around the middle and that they are as tough as steel, while the product (pyrophyllite) where they are discovered, is as soft as limestone with a count of just 3 on the Moh scale. As you most likely understand, pyrophyllite (Al2 Si4 O10(OH) 2) is a secondary mineral and the deposits were formed by a procedure of sedimentation. On Gestoptefontein volcanic activity was accountable for the forming of outcrops differing in height from about 10 to 100 meters. The smooth and reasonably soft surface area on the slopes were perfect for the ancient occupants (San) to make their inscriptions of animal and abstract styles.

On Gestoptefontein these outcrops were “ swan ” into substantial pieces by methods of twisted steel cable televisions running zig-zag on wheels for a number of kilometers. These blocks were then sawn by the very same technique into more workable pieces of about 500 x 500 mm. Periodically the “ sawing cable television ” got stuck on among the metal spheres embedded in the pyrophyllite.

They differ in size from 30– 50 mm in size and have completely concentric grooves round the center as if they were formed. Inside the tough “ shell ” some have a spongy compound, while in others it looks like charcoal.

When just partially embedded so that they can be seen on the surface area, they are not all spheres, however some are likewise oblong in type.

Andries Bisschoff, a previous teacher of the University of Potchefstroom argues the curious items are limonite concretions.

Inning accordance with research study carried out on the spheres, they are discovered in pyrophyllite a secondary mineral which is rather soft.

The spheres have a fibrous structure in the interior with a shell around them.

The spheres are extremely tough and inning accordance with scientists, it is almost difficult to scratch them.

Inning Accordance With Roelf Marx, manager if the museum of Klerksdorp, South Africa, the spheres are more difficult than Steel.




Archaeology Dig In Spain Yields Prehistoric ‘Crystal Weapons’

How do you feel when you see a beautiful crystal? Perhaps the perfection of the diamond, or the vivid colors of the different gems are your thing? The fact is that people have been fascinated by crystals ever since they had first discovered them.

The names of the gems come from ancient cultures which were pretty much obsessed with them, adding them to their jewelry, kitchenware and weapons.

Do you know that even the Bible describes the new Jerusalem after the apocalypse built all in gems and crystals?

An archaeology dig in Spain shows that crystals were an object of fascination and ritual even back in the 3rd millennium BC. At the site of Valencina de la Concepción, archaeologists uncovered a number of shrouds decorated with amber beads and they also found a “remarkable set” of ‘crystal weapons’.

The Monterilio tholos, excavated between 2007 and 2010, is “a great megalithic construction…which extends over 43.75 m in total.” It has been constructed out of large slabs of slate and served as a burial site.
The period in which this site was built was well known for the excavation of metals from the ground, and where there is excavation – there can also be crystals. In the case with the Monterilio tholos, the people there found a way to shape the quartz crystals into weapons.

However, the spot where these crystals were uncovered is not associated with rock crystal deposits, so it means that these crystals were imported from somewhere else.

The rock crystal source used in creating these weapons has not been pinpointed, but two potential sources have been suggested, “both located several kilometers away from Valencina.”

As the academic paper which focuses on these crystal weapons states, the manufacture of the crystal dagger “must have been based on accumulation of transmitted empirical knowledge and skill taken from the production of flint dagger blades as well from know-how of rock-crystal smaller foliaceous bifacial objects, such as Ontiveros and Monterilio arrowheads.”

The exact number of ‘crystal weapons’ found in the site has been estimated to “10 crystal arrowheads, 4 blades and the rock crystal core of the Monterilio tholos.”

Interestingly enough, although the bones of 20 individuals were found in the main chamber, none of the crystal weapons can be ascribed to them. The individuals had been buried with flint daggers, ivory, beads, and other items, but the crystal weapons were kept in separate chambers.

These crystal weapons could have had ritualistic significance and were most probably kept for the elite. Their use was perhaps closely connected to the spiritual significance they possessed. Indeed, many civilizations have found crystals as having a highly spiritual and symbolical significance.

The paper states that “they probably represent funerary paraphernalia only accessible to the elite of this time-period. The association of the dagger blade to a handle made of ivory, also a non-local raw material that must have been of great value, strongly suggests the high-ranking status of the people making use of such objects.”

Malapa skeletons are the same hominin species

Australopithecus lived two million years ago.

Anthropologists have published the results of a new study in to two fossil skeletons found in South Africa.

The skeletons, which were unearthed in 2008 at the fossil site of Malapa within the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site near Johannesburg, belong to an early hominin known as Australopithecus sediba.

More complete than the famous ‘Lucy’ specimen from Ethiopia, the skeletons were of a young male and adult female – both believed to be somewhere around two million years old.

For a time, it wasn’t even clear that the two belonged to the same species, but now, following a decade of research in to the finds, researchers have concluded that they are indeed the same.

The study has also revealed more about what these early hominins may have been like.

“Our interpretations in the papers suggest that A. sediba was adapted to terrestrial bipedalism, but also spent significant time climbing in trees, perhaps for foraging and protection from predators,” wrote New York University anthropologist Scott Williams.

“This larger picture sheds light on the lifeways of A. sediba and also on a major transition in hominin evolution, that of the largely ape-like species included broadly in the genus Australopithecus to the earliest members of our own genus, Homo.”

Ancient Roman Cemetery is Full of Mysterious Headless Skeletons

(Archaeological Solutions)

In England, excavations for developments of the housing kind often lead to developments of the archeological kind. While digging holes for foundations in the tiny old town of Great Whelnetham, Suffolk, in eastern England, construction workers found a Roman-era cemetery with a macabre mystery … many of the skeletons were headless, with the skull placed either between the knees, between the feet or even under a knee. Criminals? Vampires? Anti-development zombies? Something worse?

“The incisions through the neck were post-mortem and were neatly placed just behind the jaw. An execution would cut lower through the neck and with violent force, and this is not present anywhere.”

Archeologist Andrew Peachey of Archaeological Solutions, an independent archaeological contractor providing archaeological monitoring and research for urban excavations, was called in by developer Havebury Housing Partnership to investigate the cemetery, which contained 52 skeletons of which 17 had their heads removed and placed elsewhere. Seventeen more were “deviant” burials where the skeleton was face down or in a fetal position. There were also 4 skulls with no bodies. (Photos of the remains can be seen here.) The rest of the bodies were placed with heads intact in the usual face-up burial position. Peachey’s initial analysis determined that the cemetery was from the 4th century CE and that the headless bodies were not the result of executions.

“This appears to be a careful funeral rite that may be associated with a particular group within the local population, possibly associated with a belief system (cult) or a practice that came with a group moved into the area.”

But what kind of cult? Peachey tells the East Anglian Daily Times that headless burials such as these are extremely rare in Britain. He also pointed out a second mystery – the deceased appeared to be healthy when they died. Most were middle-aged or older (with a few children under 10) and in good shape.

“They were well nourished, and several had very robust upper arms/bodies consistent with a working agricultural population.”

Peachey proposes that they could have been slaves or a labor force brought in to work the fields, but the care used in the removal of the heads and their placement suggests these were members of the community and buried with respect. He has no explanation for why they died so healthy – although many had dental problems, most had healed, and evidence of tuberculosis was common in 4th century agrarian communities, so they weren’t killed by the disease nor beheaded postmortem to prevent them from rising and spreading the disease again.

The people of the Pacific island of Kiribati exhume their dead and remove their skulls to be displayed as sign of reverence in hopes the spirit will protect them. Could a similar culture or cult in 4th century England had a similar practice?

Not surprisingly, the remains have been removed to a local museum and the development is expected to be completed in July. While the skeletons and detached skulls are being analyzed for more information on the who’s and why’s of the strange burial practice, people will soon be living where they laid undisturbed for centuries. Would you want to move right in or wait for the explanation?
