Myths - Legends


(until the proof of the opposite)

Many strange stories have come to us from ancient times. Many of them don't have a logical explanation with our scientific view. Some others they are not compatible to their age.

strange fluids

One of the strangest things that I have heard is the liquid that could soften stones and make them able to be worked like cement. Some megalithic monuments with almost perfect junction accuracy are said to be build with the help of such liquids.
The colonel P.H.Fousett (explorer of the south American jungle and researcher of pre Colombian civilizations) reports that a team of American mine engineers while was examining ancient tombs close to Serro del Pasco, they found a shielded vessel that when accidentally broke the liquid that dropped on a rock made it soft like clay! Later that the rock dried, became as strong as a normal rock.
Another similar fluid is said to be able to soften the iron. Other special fluids were used for glass or marble to make them malleable!

uncrushable glass

We have some reports about implements made of glass that on strong a hit they didn't break but there shape was lightly changed! Implements like these were made in so great numbers at the Roman times that Tiberius destroyed the factories for this uncrushable glass to prevent the loss of gold's value!

eternal illuminative lamps

Other stories found on many peoples talk about oil lamps that were illumining for many years without anyone to add oil. Something like this said to be found at the grave of the daughter of Kikeron close to Apia road of Rome.

The Spanish explorer Marco Sentenera reports that at 1601, at the centre of Mato Grosso, close to the town today known as Diamantino, found a stick that on it's top had a sphere and was illuminating around with strong light.

technology,ancient

At the Dutch New Guinea there are reports about spheres with diameter of three meters placed on columns that were illuminating ceaselessly!

technology,ancient

On many closed places like the basements of the Great Pyramid of Egypt there are very good paintings without signs of any smoke at the ceiling. What were they using to see how to draw these paintings?

fire resistant textiles

An interesting occasion is some fire resistant textiles that in order to be cleared they were not washed with water and soap but they were dropped on fire! Amianthus has give to the modern manufacturers to made such clothes. Something very close to it we have on a report of Plutarch at his work 'Attika'. He says that the craftsmen from Karystos (Greece) were using fibbers from stones to make fire resistant wicks for oil lamps. There is no more information if they could make longer ropes or textiles.

unfading colours

ceremony The colours that we can see on many ancient paintings have unfading colours. Today we can't make it as good. (Remember how many old red cars you have seen with fading spots...) The wall paintings at Fagium Egypt and the wall painting at Thyra Greece are a good example for imitation!

technology,ancient

The black shining surface of the vessels found at the Minoan Crete has a well-kept secret of how this colour could be achieved. Some of these vessels are named 'egg shelled' because the thickness of them was only one millimetre!

technology,ancient

If we can go at Lascaux (France) and get a permission to visit the cave paintings we could see excellent ancient paintings on walls at the height of 3 - 4 meters, probably painted there with the help of scaffolds. The colours used were made from wanly, from bars of magnesium and from bars of pyroxene of iron. And these at the Magdalian period that we believe that the people was living in caves like an animal...
These paintings are made with perspective to manage the sense of the depth on the image. We can see paintings with perspective, again close to the renaissance at 15th century...

sealant materials

The way that ancient mechanics were able to seal ancient cisterns and aqueducts remain a big mystery. Without the use of cement they managed to achieve similar results. There are reports of the use of materials like eggs, lime, goat's hair, but they are not enough to get a similar result. Another lost knowledge...

visual helpers

Some indications force us to believe that some visual helpers were available since ancient times. We also have some reports about micrography from Kikeron. He said that he has seen Iliad written on leather that could fit inside a nutshell! Nero was observing the performances on the Colosseum through a small glass on his ring. Was this ring correcting a short sight problem or it was a binocular?
Mauritius was looking from the cape of Cicely the coasts of Africa with an 'nayskopion', who knows what it was?
At the city of Parma there is a precious stone that was wearing Michael Angelo. The sculpture on it has seven women that can be seen only with strong magnification. This precious stone is almost 2000 years old.
From the above we can conclude that since there were such abilities for micrography the artificers have to see what were working on with some strong lenses at least.

The knowledge of astronomy with so many details that have been passed in the mythology of many peoples, indicates that somehow they had the ability to see what they were describing. The existence of some kind of telescopes is not unlikely...
If we talk about things in our planet system we can imagine a very clear sky as enough help but having detailed ancient information about Serios that only recently confirmed by our modern scientist, is something that proves that we don't know well enough our true history...

battery

At 1936 German engineer Wilhelm Koenig was working at Baghdad designing a draining pipe system. Inside a ruined building 1700 years old he found a vessel with a cylinder made of bronze with asphalt inside. At the centre of the asphalt there was a piece of iron. A battery!
Inside some other similar cylinders found some seeds of grapes. Maybe the juice of the grape to act like electrolyte.

lightning rods

The famous temple of Solomon had 25 long iron sticks around its golden roof connected to metal water pipes that lead to cisterns. These prototype lightning rods protect him so it was never stroke by a lightning.
The Greek doctor Ktisias reports that close to 400 B.C. at Egypt they were using 'metal swords' partly bundled in the ground to cancel out the bad effects of storms.

constructions on planets

After some observations of the moon, there have been reported rocks from 12 to 46 meters high and almost 15 meters thick, that looks like menirs. Some of them said to be on circle!
Also many calderas seem to have five or six equal straight sides!
3 differnt lights Famous enough is the mountain on Mars that looks like a human face, but as you can see it's shape seems to change on different light, but the strange base around remains remarkably constant... Close to that there are some kind of pyramids!

paradox findings

At the Gobi desert at 1959 found on a rock a footprint of a boot with size No 43. If the footprint created when the rock was still soft sand, then someone wearing boots was walking over there 2.000.000 years ago!
The English physiologist Charles Briuster found inside a rock aged 70 -90 million years the remains of 11 steel nails!

mythical metallurgy

First of all we have the history of alchemists that were (or were not) able to produce gold processing other metals. These stories involve many scientific names of their times, so we have to think a lot before we consider all them as fools. The fact that we can't do it today is not enough for me...

technology,ancient

Etruscans were the best working with gold and none managed to compete them since then. The same applies to the making of the Gothic crowns of the treasure of Gourazar at the museum of Clyny.

technology,ancient

During the kingship of Luis the 13th someone named De Meve, said that had a material that when was abrade on iron it was making it to break like glass!
Another man named Luis Lerou had get a diploma for a patent for easy transformation of the iron to steel. The cost would be only 3 francs for a quintal.

giant ancestors

On many different peoples we found the common tradition that some giants lived some time at the past and left behind some megalithic buildings. But is it only mythology?
At the Gargayan of Philippine has been found the skeleton of a giant with height of 5,18 meters. At the Northeast Chine have been found bones that seem to belong to human skeletons of three meters height. At the province Agadir have been found tools 3.000 years old that could be used only by humans with bigger strength and dimensions than we have today.
Even on the bible we have the famous Goliath.
The Greek mythology has many details of battles with giants that were finally beaten from newer Gods.

antigravity - levitation

There are so many stories about levitation of items and people that we could make a site dedicated to it. Most of peoples have such stories in their traditions. Some people insist on an antigravity technology or physical knowledge or very high level of mind control that permit to ancient people to carry easily the huge stones for the building of their megalithic monuments.

technology,ancient

The reliquary of prophet Mohammed said that was levitating in the mosque of Medina for many years.
Ancient Greek sources report an iron statue levitating in the temple of Artemis.
For many centuries the embalmment body of Tsong Kamba, holy reformer of Tibet was levitating and have been seen from thousands of palmers. Last report confirming that was at 1845.
Many saint of the Christianity are said to levitate either on a state of ecstasy or on will. Some of them: St Thomas of Akina, Teresa of Avila, Joseph of Copertino (he was carrying passengers too!), Elizabeth of Bavaria, Pedro de Alcandara and others.
Some monks from India are able of doing it until today.
The Indians of North America have some stories about flying on big metal disks that had to be hit to activated with the power of the sound.

Some rumours say that General Electric has such technology available since 1948 and is able to make things to levitate, but for unknown reasons keep this a secret.

calendars

Every nation had developed their own calendar system with different ways to correct deviations. Some of them used the moon others divided the year to 12 equal or unequal parts.
A starting date Greeks used the first Olympic Games (776 B.C.), Romans used the building of Rome (753 B.C.), Egyptians the dynasty of Menes, Chinese the dynast of Hsia, Sumerians their catalog of kings, at India the story of Gilgames, Mayas the 3113 B.C. etc.

But Mayas and their ancestors Olmecs, were using a completely different system to measure time. They had a month of 20 days, 18 months each year (360 days) and after that continuing to groups of 20 they could go up to 'alautun' that was 23.040.000.000 days! (It is correct, billions!). On labels found at the place Kiriga there are reported facts before 90.000.000 years, and other labels writes about 400.000.000 before!
For small time periods Mayas were using the 1/20 of the day (our 1 hour and 20 minutes), and their minute was the 1/20 of their hour (our 4 minutes).
They had calculated the true solar year to 265.242 days, the lunar year and the year of Venus at 224.7 days.
But with this calendar they were using also another one with 13 months of 20 days, that none knows to what is connected... Some unknown planet?
They also knew the existence of planets Uranus and Neptune. We learned their existence at 1781 and 1846...

And pretending that we don't see all the above the 'official history' insists on beliefs that Mayas had a very simple agricultural structured economy! Their huge libraries burned from the Spanish soldiers that gave this way the lights of European civilization to these 'barbarians'... We lost a lot of valuable information from these libraries. After that Mayas without a fight, they disappear in the jungle for more than 300 years.

A civilization with almost 120 cities in the heart of tropical jungle of Yucatan, with no roads to connect them, without weapons for defence, that were using the wheel only for kids toys, manage to made impressively buildings with rocks transferred from Guatemala. They probably were using a different but effective way for transportations and communications. But who knows what?
