Egypt - Unfinished Obelisk

 

The unfinished obelisk is the largest known ancient obelisk, located in thenorthern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt in Aswan (Assuan), Egypt. It is unknown which pharaoh created this structure . It is nearly one third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If finished it would have measured around 42 m (approximately 137 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1,200 tons.f


The obelisk's creators began to carve it directly out of bedrock, but cracks appeared in the granite and the project was abandoned. The bottom side of the obelisk is still attached to the bedrock.

 

Unfinished Obelisk. The granite quarries of ancient Aswan lay beside the Nile, thus providing easy access to boats for transporting this prized building stone to sites downstream. A crack in the granite stopped the cutting of what would have been an enormous obelisk (estimated at more than 40 meters high). Now the abandoned partially carved obelisk gives us information about how ancient stonecutters worked.

The Amazing Cut Stones at Baalbek

Baalbeck is a city in eastern Lebanon. There is a great mystery at Baalbek. Under the temple of Jupiter and almost hidden by it, lay the remains of an earlier temple, probably dedicated to the heathen god Baal. - Baalbeck is a quarry where the stones used in the temples were cut.

At the southern entrance of Baalbeck is a quarry where the stones used in the temples were cut. A huge block, considered the largest hewn stone in the world, still sits where it was cut almost 2,000 years ago. Called the "Stone of the Pregnant Woman", it is 21.5m x 4.8m x 4.2meters in size and weighs an estimated 1,000 tons.

PROJECT CAMELOT: MICHAEL TELLINGER - ADAM'S CALENDAR DOCUMENTARY ( 2 Hr: 08 mins )

Back in June of 2010 I made a trip out to see Adam's Calendar and the stone circles of South Africa. This is a documentary made of my journey. Shot in a guerilla filmmaking style this documentary captures the real flavor of the place, the ambiance and wonder and magic of what may well be one of the most amazing and overlooked ancient sites on Planet Earth.

Michael Tellinger is the well known author of SLAVE SPECIES OF GOD, TEMPLES OF THE AFRICAN GODS, and ADAM'S CALENDAR. These works take off from the work of Zecharia Stichin and reveal what may well be the site where the Anunnaki genetically modified the DNA of humans...

Project Camelot Audio Interview with Michael Tellinger : Temples of African Gods ( 1 Hr: 36 mins)

I decided to do an audio interview with Michael Tellinger in order to provide an upldate on what is becoming worldwide attention on the ruins in South Africa. The stone circles including Adam's Calendar were brought to the forefront when Johan Heine contacted Michael Tellinger, author of "Slave Species of god" back in 2007 to tell him about the discovery of a massive set of stone ruins located in South Africa. As the author of an investigation into the Annunaki and the genetic engineering of man, Michael iinstantly saw the connection to his own work.

Now, years later, with more scientists beginning to recognize the importance of these sites, known as, Adam's Calendar and Makomati, Michael finds himself spending more time showing interested parties what has been found. His investigations into these ruins have yielded secrets regarding the origins of humanity, the technology and knowledge that resides in this place and the significance this has for our future.

In addition, this interview happened as part of what became a strange synchronicity with a controversy that has erupted around Michael Tellinger and Credo Mutwa. In a special effort to clear up this controversy, I have asked Michael to talk about this and reveal details of his relationship to Credo. I sincerely hope that the information here will clear up this misunderstanding. More and more, in this field of research, journalists and personalities find half truths or misconceptions and take it upon themselves to publicize them either for their own advancement or for some nefarious purpose that is not immediately clear. This is a call to all those who have participated in this to come forward with public apologies and understanding.

The Mysterious Towers of Himalayas

f

The Himalayan Towers also called Stone star-shaped towers, are a series of stone towers located mostly in Kham, an ancient province of Tibet, in Sichuan and in Tibet. The towers are located in regions of Changthang, Gyalrong, Miniak and Kongpo. The towers can be found both in cities and in uninhabited regions. They have been described for the first time during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Carbon dating by Frederique Darragon shows they were built approximately 500 to 1,800 years ago. Since they are generally located in prosperous villages, it is believed that their primary function was as a demonstration of a family's prestige within the community. At that time, wealth was acquired especially by the trade with the Mongols. For strength, many of the towers use a star pattern of walls as opposed to a strictly rectangular method. Heights can exceed 60m.

 

No one knows why the towers are build and kept and so does what are the function, but some people say that this tower is part of the defense structures to observe the hills around it. Others predict that the towers are a symbol of status or storage house, or both. Even so, the mysterious Himalayas tower is one of the secrets of China.

Tasmanian Tribal Site is 40,000 Years Old

Australian archaeologists have uncovered what they believe to be the world's southernmost site of early human life, a 40,000-year-old tribal meeting ground.

The site appears to have been the last place of refuge for Aboriginal tribes from the cannon fire of Australia's first white settlers, said Michael Mansell of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre. The find came during an archaeological survey ahead of roadwork near Tasmania's Derwent River and soil dating had established the age of the artifacts found there.

"When the archaeological report came out it showed that (life there) had gone back longer than any other recorded place anywhere else in Tasmania, dating back to 40,000 years," Mansell told AFP.

Up to three million artifacts, including stone tools, shellfish fragments and food scraps, were believed to be buried in the area, which appeared to have been a meeting ground for three local tribes….
 
The readings indicated that "we do have the oldest, most southern site anywhere in the world", making it "an important site for anyone ".

Austrialia’s Oldest Cave Paintings

 

A rock art painting at a site rediscovered two years ago in southwest Arnhem Land could be a depiction of Genyornis, an extinct megafauna species similar to the Emu, but three times as tall. The painting's detail of the bird's parrot-like beak - a characteristic feature of the Genyornis that is utterly unlike its Emu ancestor - is a key piece of the evidence. If the painting is indeed a representation of the largest bird that ever lived, it should be about 40,000 years old, when Genyornis was made extinct as Aboriginal peoples progressively cleared land by setting fires. This would make the painting Australia's oldest, as well as the world's oldest painting found outside a cave.

Other Arnhem Land rock art galleries have yielded images of a variety of extinct species, including Palorchestes, a large Tapir-like animal, and Thylacenes, the "Tasmanian Tiger." Images found last year in the Kimberly, in Western Australia, are now accepted by scientists to be depictions of Thylacoleo carnifexin, an extinct marsupial lion.

Crystal Skulls

Crystal Skulls

The crystal skulls are a number of human skull hardstone carvings made of clear or milky quartz rock, known in art history as "rock crystal", claimed to be pre-Columbian Mesoamerican artifacts by their alleged finders. However, none of the specimens made available for scientific study have been authenticated as pre-Columbian in origin. The results of these studies demonstrated that those examined were manufactured in the mid-19th century or later, almost certainly in Europe. Despite some claims presented in an assortment of popularizing literature, legends of crystal skulls with mystical powers do not figure in genuine Mesoamerican or other Native American mythologies and spiritual accounts.

Numerical system of the Maya: Where did it come from?

 

Maya numerals are a vigesimal (base-twenty) numeral system used by the Pre-Columbian Maya civilization.

 

The numerals are made up of three symbols; zero (shell shape), one (a dot) and five (a bar). For example, nineteen (19) is written as four dots in a horizontal row above three horizontal lines stacked upon each other.

 

Numbers after 19 were written vertically in powers of twenty. For example, thirty-three would be written as one dot above three dots, which are in turn atop two lines. The first dot represents "one twenty" or "1×20", which is added to three dots and two bars, or thirteen. Therefore, (1×20) + 13 = 33. Upon reaching 20^2 or 400, another row is started. The number 429 would be written as one dot above one dot above four dots and a bar, or (1×20^2) + (1×20^1) + 9 = 429. The powers of twenty are numerals, just as the Hindu-Arabic numeral system uses powers of tens.

Inca Counting System

The Inca invented a powerful counting system that could be used to make complex

calculations without the tiniest mistake.

 

 

 

Quipus – Inca

 

Quipus (or khipus), sometimes called talking knots, were recording devices historically used in the region of Andean South America. A quipu usually consisted of colored, spun, and plied thread or strings from llama or alpaca hair. It could also be made of cotton cords. The cords contained numeric and other values encoded by knots in a base ten positional system. Quipus might have just a few or up to 2,000 cords.

 

Archaeological evidence has shown that systems similar to the quipu were in use in the Andean region from c. 3000 BC.

 

"The khipu were knotted-string devices that were used for recording both statistical and narrative information, most notably by the Inka but also by other peoples of the central Andes from pre-Inkaic times, through the colonial and republican eras, and even – in a considerably transformed and attenuated form – down to the present day."
