The Oldest Language on Earth
Still spoken by 2.5 million people, the Aymara language is widely considered to be the oldest in the world. In the 1980s Bolivian computer scientist Ivan Guzman de Rojas demonstrated that Aymara appears to be a “made up” language—one that’s deliberately and skillfully designed. Of particular note was the artificial character of its syntax, which was rigidly structured and unambiguous to an extent, thought inconceivable in normal organic language. This synthetic and highly organized structure meant that Aymara could easily be transformed into an algebraic shorthand that computers understand, and can be used to translate one language into another. The Aymara algorithm is used as a bride language: the language of an original document is translated into Aymara, and then into any number of other languages. Excuse me while I screw my head back on. Are we to believe that the Aymara who had no written language or use of the wheel somehow developed this synthetic computer language themselves, and built structures requiring a staggering level of math, engineering and science barely in existence today?
Stonework of the Gods
This Atlantean colony was also said to encompass the walls of Sacsayhuaman and Macchu Picchu. One of the greatest construction enigmas on the planet, the walls of Sacsayhuaman, are comprised of granite stones weighing up to 360 tons and 29 feet in height, cut and transported from a quarry over 10 miles away across unforgiving terrain. Granite is extremely hard and brutally difficult to shape in even the most rudimentary ways. The stones of Sacsayhuaman are joined in polygonal fashion, fitting perfectly on multiple planes simultaneously without mortar. They are joined so tightly that you cannot put a razor blade between them. Engineers and stone sculptors state that this would be nearly impossible to duplicate even with today's most advanced techniques. Cayce claims Atlanteans built these walls. There is evidence that the granite was liquefied and poured into place (see photo above).
The complex of Macchu Picchu speaks for itself. One of the most astounding and improbable stone cities on earth, its creation has always been viewed as a complete conundrum. An impossible location to build such a place, it is beyond reason to assume that a society, once again, acknowledged by archaeologists to have no use of the wheel, was able to accomplish such a feat. Match this with the 15,000 to 25,000 miles of stone paved roads that the Inca say they inherited in their land, and you start to appreciate the scope of the mystery. Modern archeology has given us the illusion that there are reasonable explanations for all these things; nothing could be further from the truth.
Cayce claims that the Jupiter temple at Baalbek Lebanon was built by Atlantean engineers. Baalbek just happens to contain three of the largest quarried stones in the world. They weigh over 2 million pounds each, placed on a retaining wall of up to 500 ton stones 40 feet in the air. They are so expertly joined that a piece of paper can’t fit between them. Once again, it is widely agreed that even today if our civilization marshaled its resources we could not duplicate this feat, due to space constraints and other factors at the site. Archaeologists unable to explain the mysteries of Baalbek rarely have the intellectual honesty to admit their ignorance of the matter. They instead point to the Phoenician and Roman ruins built on top of the original Atlantean temple to date it and hope no one will notice. The weathering of the massive megaliths clearly indicates they are vastly older than the newer and much smaller stonework at the temple.
The Lion’s Share of the Truth
Next stop—Egypt. Cayce claims the founders of the Egyptian civilization were the Atlanteans escaping the sinking of their continent. He claims the Sphinx and Great Pyramid are over 12,000 years old and were built with a lost technology. Weathering patterns on the Sphinx reveal that Cayce was correct in his assertion. It is clearly weathered by thousands of years of rain, but the last time rain of sufficient quantity occurred there was over 10,000 years ago. When hundreds of geologists agreed with the findings of researcher John Anthony West and geologist Robert Schoch in the 1990's about the age of the Sphinx, it turned Egyptology upside down. This is what West said after offering incontrovertible geologic proof of their findings:
“We are told that the evolution of human civilization is a linear process—that it goes from stupid cavemen to smart old us with our hydrogen bombs and striped toothpaste. But the proof that the Sphinx is many, many thousands of years older than the archaeologists think it is, that it preceded by many thousands of years even dynastic Egypt, means that there must have been, at some distant point in history, a high and sophisticated civilization—just as all the legends affirm.”
The dating of the Sphinx fits nicely with the fact that the astrological age of the constellation Leo the Lion was from 10,970 B.C. to 8810 B.C. Many researchers believe that the original monument had the head of a lion which was later re-carved by a self-aggrandizing pharaoh thousands of years later. This would explain why one of the most amazing structures in the world has a head completely out of proportion with its body.
Not All Pyramids are Created Equal
Notice how new findings almost always come from outside the discipline in question. Remember, orthodox dating of the great pyramid is 2550 B.C. The work of Belgian engineer Robert Bauval has further strengthened the case for the extreme antiquity of the Giza complex. Bauval figured out that the three pyramids are an exact mirror of the three central stars of Orion's Belt. Because of the phenomena of the precession of the equinoxes, at 10,450 B.C. and at that date only there is a faultless match, a perfect reflection of the two. It cannot be by accident either, because the entire arrangement depicts two other very unusual celestial events that occurred only at 10,450 B.C. The pyramids also reflect perfectly the magnitude (in their proportional relationship) and color of the three Orion stars: originally two of the pyramids were cased in red granite, and one in white limestone, correlating to the exact colors of the stars. Cayce stated that the pyramids and related structures were built between 10,490 and 10,390 B.C. and that Hermes Trismegistus was the master architect. He proclaimed this in the 1930s in a trance state when none of this corroborating information was available. Many other pyramids such as Sahure, dated 2450 B.C., are now piles of rubble, built with much smaller stones and far diminished engineering. Compare these to the geometric perfection of the great pyramid, which conventional archaeologists date to 2550 B.C. How is it possible to account for such a decline in building standards and engineering expertise? Do you think that archeology has its dates wrong? It appears that later generations did not possess the technology of the original builders and tried to imitate the original pyramids with very poor results.
They Didn’t Skip Math Class
Not only is the Great Pyramid an engineering masterpiece, it is an amazingly precise model of the northern hemisphere of the earth on a scale of 1:43,200. Pyramids on both sides of the Atlantic where Cayce said Atlanteans settled turn out to have used the ratio Pi (3.14) to an exacting degree. This caused them to be built at the idiosyncratic angles of 51.84 degrees (Great Pyramid) and 43.5 degrees (Teotihuacan, Mexico) instead of the much simpler 45 degrees. Archaeologists don’t dispute that they are built according to Pi, but they claim it is by chance. Wow, I wish I had that sense of humor. The Great Pyramid is built on the longest line of latitude and longitude on the globe, a geodetic marker and ground zero for a worldwide grid of sacred structures built in ancient times. The geometry exhibited in the pyramid code reveals that the builders had knowledge of the circumference of the earth (long before Eratosthenes knew the exact circumference of the sun), understood the phenomena of the precession of the equinoxes (the 25,920 year cycle caused by the earth’s wobble), and many other amazingly advanced geometric and mathematical concepts.
Survivors of the Ancient Flood
What we have are cultures on either side of the Atlantic that built pyramids of stone of astounding sophistication, have hieroglyphic languages, show extensive machining of stone, and have legends of enlightened bearded giants coming to their shores 12,000 years ago after a cataclysmic flood (a story shared by over 2,000 indigenous cultures worldwide). Yet it is claimed all this is isolated coincidence. Both the meso-American cultures and the Egyptians affirm these beings built the enigmatic stone structures of their land, taught the arts and sciences of civilization, and independently stated that the first thing these beings did was to abolish cannibalism. In 1954 J. Eric Thompson, a leading authority on the archaeology of Central America summarizes how conventional archeology has gotten it all wrong in regards to the existence of a high and sophisticated civilization in the remotest of times. "What mental quirks led the Maya intelligentsia to chart heavens, yet fail to grasp the principle of the wheel, to visualize eternity, yet ignore the short step from corbelled to true arch, to count in millions, yet never to learn to weigh a sack of corn?" The answer is obvious, the unremarkable Maya like so many other civilizations, inherited the science and technology of a former time.
The Clock Strikes Midnight
This is our world—littered with inexplicable ruins of a lost civilization, not just a few isolated examples. National Geographic Magazine recently reported the extraordinarily complex temple site of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey has been newly carbon dated to 10,000 B.C. Does that date ring a bell? The site has countless rings of up to 19-ton, expertly carved, standing stones. After nearly 20 years of excavation, archaeologists have yet to uncover a single stone tool or artifact from the site. I encourage the reader to allow me to further make my case as I do my best to decipher the messages coded in myth and mathematics from this lost civilization, messages transmitted to us through 26,000 years of time.
