FORGOTTEN PAST

If there had once been an advanced civilisation, which had flourished & perished on earth, in our distant past....surely there would be some signs of its existence left?
HORSE AND SPHYNX.jpg

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp'd on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock'd them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

                                                           Shelly. circa 1818

MARKAWASI

In the Andean foothills, near Lima, Peru, a rock plateau has what appears to be ancient sculptures of human faces, sea life, animals & even Egyptian gods. Many of the sculptures depict things which are not native of the Americas. How did its creators know of such things?

 

BAALBEK

In Baalbek, Lebanon, near thepresent Syrian border, an ancient race quarried, lifted, moved & placed, with supreme precision, stone Blocks weighing up to 2000 tonne. Any lifting system is only as strong as its weakest part. Did the ancients really only use manpower & rope?

 

THE BOSNIAN SPHERES

Located at 2 sites on the northern and southern tips of the city of Zavidovici in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
An assortment of various sized stone spheres which were found at a number of locations throughout Bosnia, but predominantly in or near the town of Zavidovici.

THE GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA

Known to most people on the planet, the Great Pyramid of Gizeh is quite rightly an ancient wonder. However, does its Engineering perfection give the biggest clue to who its  builders were & their true technological abilities?

 

FELSENMEER

Felsenmeer is a formation of large loose boulders / rocks which run up a single re-entrant that eventually forms a saddle between two parts of a ridge feature. It is located roughly midway between the cities of Mannheim and Frankfurt in
western Germany.

 

THE BOSNIAN PYRAMID

The Bosnian Pyramid complex is a collection of geographical features located around the town of
Visoko, for which it has been claimed are actually the remains of massive structures which can be
ascribed to a long forgotten civilisation which flourished at the site at some point in the distant past.

NAZCA LINES

In southern Peru there are 1000s of huge petroglyphs scratched into the desert floor. What made their creators design them to be seen from the air? Most are perfectly designed...why does one appear to have been drawn by a child aged 5?

 

AVEBURY

Avebury is a Neolithic monument in the county of Wiltshire in South West UK and is approximately
11-14 miles from the cities of Swindon & Chippenham respectively.


Forgotten History

Is it possible human history is wrong?

It would take some pretty solid evidence to reach that conclusion, and if you did it could open up a can of worms as to how we currently live our lives! Such a massive change in your mind-set is the true definition of a ‘paradigm shift’                                                    

Paradigm shift :- A time when the usual and accepted way of doing or thinking about somthing changes completly
— Cambridge Dictionary 2018

 A good starting point towards making this change would be to question current beliefs and consider if they could possibly be false. In western society we are schooled from an early age and ‘told’ exactly what has happened in our past; we rarely question this schooling, because it has been taken from historical records, apparently written and passed down over the previous millennia. However, if we consider the old adage of ‘the victor writes the history’, then we must contemplate that these written accounts may in fact be complete falsifications, produced in order to protect the interests of those doing the writing (Sarot 1999)?

We do know that throughout history, monotheistic belief systems such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam, have controlled societies with a mixture of emotional fear and military power, whilst also being the only source of information about the outside world available to those populations (Asad 2009). Almost all historical records over the past thousand years, were written or transcribed by Priests, Monks, Rabbi and Imams etc. If you were poor you would not question the hand that fed you and if you were of the aristocracy and fortunate enough to be able to travel and conduct research, life could be very tricky if you considered suggesting ideas that went against the accepted dogma (Sarot 1999).

Scholars have had to make any research fit within a set chronological time frame which suited a particular religious background and anyone who suggested otherwise risked fates ranging from being ostracised by their peers to death for being a heretic (Fichtenau 2010). We can see the strides taken by Christianity to remove any evidence from the South American continent, which was a threat to their power system (Alva 2001). Christian records describe the multitude of written documents and objects they destroyed, as they rampaged through the continent, purely because it was ‘heretical mumbo jumbo’ i.e it did not fit in with, or directly challenged their core beliefs system, thus weakening the power that faith generated (Schwaller 2011). Despite this, the Christian bible still gives hints at a past different to that which it portrays (See;- Ecclesiastes 1:9)

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
— Ecclesiastes 1:9

If this seems a little far fetched, consider what is currently happening in the Middle East, with regular stories on the news of ISIS destroying megalithic sites in Iraq (Harmansah 2015). The sites they are destroying are from the Sumerian Empire, who flourished in Mesopotamia many thousands of years ago (Kramer 1963). They produced what are currently the oldest written documents known to man, the ‘Sumerian texts’, which are a cuneiform text written on clay tablets. These texts tell a very different story of human history, to that which is accepted today (George 2002 & Chiera 1934). The Sumerian Empire raises unwanted questions and threatens the dogmatic belief system that is the root of religious power; its destruction and disappearance would be very convenient?

Fortunately many of the structures encountered in the Americas were designed and built to withstand more destructive forces than those possessed by the rampaging conquistadors and so still survive today. This is also true of many other such sites worldwide, which have survived the ravages of time due to the magnificence of their design and construction. As we grow as a technological civilisation, these megalithic sites are now been looked at through eyes free from religious influence; new studies suggest there was a civilisation, in our distant past, which possessed knowledge and technical abilities we are only just starting to understand and develop ourselves (Hancock 2012 & Childress 2000). As our understanding of physics, astronomy, astrophysics, electromagnetism and geology increases, many are starting to see that ancient megalithic sites, which we had been told were designed for religious purposes, may in fact have a far more technical and productive function (Dunn 1998).

  how long would structures last after a cataclysmic event?

how long would structures last after a cataclysmic event?

 Imagine if our current civilisation were wiped out tomorrow. The human race was destroyed by either a natural disaster (meteor strike or polar shift creating floods) or we destroyed ourselves (nuclear War or a man-made pathogen), (Keely 1997), there would be small isolated pockets of survivors, spread across the planet, struggling to survive. Those isolated pockets would slowly revert to what we know as a caveman existence and knowledge of what had been before would be verbally passed down, becoming diluted in a rolling game of generational Chinese whispers (Bostrom 2002).

Imagine if those isolated societies began to re-emerge and developed organised civilisations, eventually travelling the globe and contacting descendants of other groups, until once again they became a pan global civilisation. At the core of each group would still be the original story of who they were and who they descended from and all would have a similar theme ‘there was disaster, the world ended, we survived, we rebuilt’. This story is at the centre of all civilisations on the planet today, on every continent, from the Americas to Australasia, Europe to Africa (Noorbergen 1977). However, over this centuries this unifying evidence has been reduced to just ‘myth and legend’ and not real historical events (Dimitrov et al 2004), “The victor writes the History”

Consider now the physical evidence. If a prehistoric pan global society had existed, surely there would be some remnants of this society left? Of course time is a factor in this, we know the earth changes over time and structures decay; the earlier any civilisation flourished, the less chance we have of finding evidence of it (Hancock 2012). Also we must consider that any society, would not necessarily conform to the direction which our own development has taken, or indeed been of human origin, so we may not even recognise any remaining fragments (Trent 2009). The physical signs of a previous civilisation would decay as the unstoppable consequences of time took their toll, but the largest and strongest structures would last the longest (Leslie 1998).

There is a similarity in construction between all societies currently on earth today; whilst there will be cultural differences, the core principles of construction are the same. For major projects, in all nations, such as hydro-electric, nuclear or wind power, or any gigantic construction projects, experts from all over the planet are bought in to help design and oversee construction, due to their experience on previous projects. This sharing of knowledge leads to similar techniques of construction and uniformal development across the globe (Ochieng et al 2013).

  Examples from worldwide megalithic sites which used the same method for fastening stone blocks together, using molten metals (long decayed  )

If we look back through the megalithic structures from pre-history, we see all civilisations on every continent using an identical method of construction in the form of the pyramids, rivers of mercury, thermal insulation and earthquake proof foundations etc (Magli 2009), which are then all laid out in the same pattern (matching the constellation Orion) and yet we are told to believe that this is purely coincidental (Bauval, Gilbert 2001)..

  Similar construction, opposite sides of the planet? Guatemala & Cambodia.

Is it possible that the history written by the victors is starting to be seen for what it is i.e utter fabrication used to enslave populations?

All of these factors and many more (including ancient writings that tell of a very different human history and match the physical evidence we see across the globe), paint a different picture than that believed by societies that have lived for millennia under the control of religious factions. It is because of this abundance of evidence, laid out for all to see, across the whole planet, that I believe we are living a lie and is the core reason of why Im going to travel the world, in order to visit these sites and highlight the evidence and help lift the veil which has been covering our eyes.

I’d love it if you joined me on this journey and helped me challenge the evidence with your thoughts and questions.
