Curiosities of the Egyptian Slaves

Many times (almost always) every time we watch a documentary or we read a history book, we take that information as if was a concrete fact without questioning anything about it and we assimilate as if it were the absolute truth.

In this case, today we will talk about the pyramids and some data quite interesting.

Official history tells us that the pyramids of Egypt were made by slaves sent to be built tombs for their pharaohs (Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure).
It is estimated that they were made approx. 5,000 years.

So let’s review how the pyramids are built having consider the Great Pyramid.

It is made up of 2,300,000 stone blocks ranging from 2.5 to 60 tons.
60 tons … it would be like moving the weight equivalent to 12 trucks together…

So what does the official story tell us?
That the pyramids were built by slaves in a period 20 years approx.
If we calculate the speed with which the stones should be placed taking into account the 2,300,000 stones, while they worked 10 hours a day every day of the week, 365 days a year, they had to put one stone on top of another every 2 minutes … A stone every two minutes … Stones ranging from 2.5 tons to 60 tons …

Another interesting fact about the pyramid is that if we see it from its highest point, the tip of the pyramid is offset by 6 millimeters from the base!
6 millimeters of error … after putting 2,300,000 stones at a height of almost 150 meters …
Not even our most “modern” buildings have that precision, in fact, we are very far from matching that.

Researchers say the pyramids were built as graves.
When they discovered the pyramids they had to use dynamite on some to enter because there was no entrance anywhere.
Upon entering they found the sarcophagus with an earthenware of various tons on top that sealed it, but when they managed to get it out there there was no mummy inside.
What is the explanation they gave?… Tomb desecrators!
S,o in theory, the defilers got in (who knows how since there was no entrance to the pyramids) they raised the earthenware of several tons (I wonder how) they took out everything there inside, they put the china back, and they left…
It has no sense.

Another interesting fact is that we know that the Egyptians painted hieroglyphs EVERYWHERE …

They told us EVERYTHING about their life, even how they bathed … but in NOT ONE SIDE tells how they made the pyramids.
And more importantly … THERE WAS NOT ANOTHER hieroglyph painted inside the pyramids!

We know that the pyramids are aligned with the constellation of Orion…

They tell us that the slaves built the pyramids using ramps, pulleys, copper tools, wooden logs, etc. and the “funny thing” is that today with all our current technology it would be impossible for us to make a replica of the pyramids with that immense precision possessed by those of Egypt.

The official theory is as the sentence goes: a theory, nobody assures how the pyramids were built, moreover, every time there are new theories in the archaeological world.
Anyway we see in the History or Discovery or in the books of history as they speak as if the official theory were fact.

Let’s continue in Egypt with the Sphinx

Have you ever thought how the Sphinx was made?
Obviously one would think that it was assembled in parts but it is not like that, the sphinx is a SINGLE CARVED BLOCK…
And how did they move such a weight?
I don’t think they had one of these in those days.

Even with the most powerful crane we have today, we could not move that weight we can barely lift even more do pirouettes in the air… and especially while we are in LA ARENA … but it seems that Egyptian slaves moved that weight
as they pleased.

The statue of Ramses II

When they found the statue of Ramses II on the ground they decided to move it just to build the Ramses Museum. But it turns out that the monument is a solid block of approx 1000 tons.
So when they realized that it was going to be impossible for them to move the statue without cutting it into pieces they decided to build the museum around where the statue was located.

Let’s move on to the The Mortuary Temple of Seti I (aka The Temple of Osiris), in Abydos

LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING 5 IMAGES and the drawing:

What can be appreciated is not a painting … it is a carving. And this drawing seems to be carved with several centimeters of depth, that is, if we cut a piece of stone the drawing would still appear …
Scientists have no idea how they did it, they say that the drawing is BURNT on the rock, there is no way that
we can do that today.

The Flower of Life

“The Flower of Life is a secret symbol created by the inscription of 13 circles of the Flower of Life. By doing this, one can discover the most important and sacred model in the universe. “
A symbol that we find in all parts of the World. Da Vinci dedicated many studies to him

If we go to China to the “Forbidden City of China”, we find ourselves with the “Lions of Fu”

And what is under the claws?!…

The Flower of Life…

Let’s go back to Egypt
A submerged “city” was recently discovered near Alexandria called Thônis-Heracleion.

Many ancient cultures viewed the lion as the guardian of the knowledge!
How many similar monuments we see in cities daily, but it all comes from an ancient tradition.

It’s obvious that it can’t be a coincidence…
If we go from Egypt to Mexico…
At the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacán…

We can see that their shrines were also aligned with the constellation Orion!

And that even the dimensions of the base of the pyramids are similar!!!

So how can it be that 2 cultures that according to the history books had nothing to do with each other and lived at different times build semi-identical monuments aligned with the stars?
It would be a lot of coincidence…
But it obviously doesn’t end here, it’s not even close to beginning…
Hundreds of similar constructions between different cultures can be found in all parts of the World.

Let’s look at the Mayans and the Balinese (Indonesia)

All over the planet we can find pyramids!!!

Pyramids in China

The Chinese government denies the existence of the pyramids and even planted vegetation in one of them to try to hide it but they couldn’t hide it forever anyway.
Who knows why they don’t want the world to know.

Pyramids in Italy

There are many archaeologists, scientists, researchers, etc. that are trying to bring this out into the open and there are others who CLAIM that the supposed pyramids are just natural mountains …

Please don’t tell me that the natural mountains lined Nature with Orion…

Submerged pyramids have been found in Yonaguni (Japan)

When they did carbon dating of the coral that formed under the pyramids from the moment of sinking gave them that:
pyramids submerged about 10,000 years ago…

Pyramids in Antarctica

When I found out about this I thought it might be another one of the “things” that one sees on the internet but, researching more on the subject, I was surprised the number of archaeologists talking about this and I found a
report on the RAI channel which surprised me.
Scientists are alarmed that Antarctica is melting faster than they thought and beyond the consequences that that may bring us… and it is revealing incredible secrets to us.

A lot of things are coming to light lately, who knows what we can get to find out soon.
Clearly we still don’t know our own World …
Not what happened on this planet so many thousands of years ago … or maybe some do know?

Cueva de los Tayos (Ecuador)

300 ENIGMATIC PIECES IN THE JUNGLE OF ECUADOR
In 1984 an impressive discovery in the jungle of Ecuador, in the Cueva de los Tayos, in a town called La Maná,
convulsed the world of forbidden archeology, while – for course- they once again concealed the fact to keep us in the historical amnesia with which they always want to “sleep us”.

Pay attention to the latter…
This piece is called the “Black Pyramid of the Son of the Creator
It is so called because the translation of the inscriptions in the stone says: “The son of the creator comes from here“!
The stone is black and white, with a brick pyramid with thirteen levels recorded on it.
There is also a cleverly inlaid eye on top of the pyramid.

Something interesting, if we turn off the light and apply ultraviolet light …

But if you think this is interesting, wait until you see what its found when the stone pyramid it’s turned over:

The constellation of Orion

Clearly Orion meant something very important to the ancient civilizations
But that’s what I was going for with this particular case …
We really don’t know anything about what happened thousands of years ago…?
Or if are there people who do know?
Let’s take a good look at this next pyramid…

Have we not seen thousands of times the symbol of the pyramid and the eye?

Both the dollar pyramid and the mana artifact count with 13 steps!
“The pyramid and the eye” is one of the symbols used by the current freemasonry…

Clearly this symbology dates back thousands of years and who knows how many thousands of years ago …
Will it be that a few were passing the knowledge of generation after generation for thousands of years?
What happened to all those ancient cultures so advanced?
Did the Egyptians build the pyramids?… Or the pyramids already were there when the Egyptians arrived?
Simple coincidences? … Or was there an ancient global civilization a thousand years ago?
Or even some certain knowledge that was applied by all cultures through time?

This was taken from a PDF sent to me a few years ago which, its author, unfortunately, was not identified.

I was loved archaeology mysteries and what came to my mind, when I read this nowadays, was the funny thing that there are still so many archaeological findings wrapped in mystery…

So, I hope you enjoy this post and, if by some funny circumstance you are the author of this crazily awesome compilation of historic mysteries, please contact me!

Segovia

WORLD HERITAGE

Segovia is a Roman aqueduct, a dreamlike fortress, a huge Gothic cathedral. Segovia is the best Romanesque, it is a set of medieval towns such as Pedraza, Sepúlveda, Turégano, Cuéllar, Ayllón or Maderuelo. It is a set of royal palaces such as that of La Granja de San Ildefonso and Riofrío. It is the province of the beautiful castles. It is the Sierra de Guadarrama and ski resorts. It is a source of suckling pig and roast lamb. Segovia is, in short, a melting pot of history, culture, art, traditions and beautiful landscapes.

THE AQUEDUCT

The famous Aqueduct is located in the Plaza del Azoguejo, and is undoubtedly the most representative element of the city. It was built between the second half of the 1st century and the 2nd century in the time of the emperors Vespasiano and Trajano, in order to bring the water from the Frío River, in a place called Acebeda to the city.

It consists of 20,400 stone blocks not joined by mass or any cement.

It is 728 meters long and 28.29 meters maximum height.

It has 167 arches, with a slope of 1%.

King Solomon’s mines: myth or truth?

He was, above all, a wise man – according to the Scriptures. His teachings are still known today, recorded in the book of Proverbs. But it was not only for his sayings that Solomon became the target of curiosity. It was also because of a legend, a belief that points to the existence of mines, from which came the greatest wealth that man has ever seen, according to the Bible.

The North Sentinel Island

The most hostile place in the World: Northern Sentinel Island

They settled in the region 60,000 years ago and receive visitors with violence.

It is hard to believe that there are people in the world who know nothing about television, have never seen a car or made-up clothing.

However, there are still tribes that are completely separate from global civilization and do not maintain any contact with the outside world.

Nearly 60,000 years old, North Sentinel Island is a part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which lies in the Indian Ocean, between Myanmar and Indonesia.

There, it is the place where there is one of the most isolated tribes on the planet.

Sentinelians are so hostile to external contact that the island was considered the most difficult place in the world to visit.

Sentinels seem to be direct descendants of the first humans to emerge from Africa.

The number of inhabitants cannot yet be certified, but it is estimated that there are between 40 and 500 natives.

No matter the character of the visitor, when they arrive on the island’s shores, whether on purpose or by accident, islanders receive intruders almost always in the same way: with spears and arrows, in an attack position.

Gifts, such as food and clothing, are of no importance to them.

This hostility reached the point where the natives offered resistance to rescue missions after the tsunami in 2004.

Just as the disastrous tsunami hit the Indian Ocean, a group of rescuers offered help to Sentinels through an Indian navy helicopter.

They wanted to find and help the survivors, although the chances were slim.

They tried to drop packages of food to the ground, but were met with hostility from the natives, including a sentinel warrior who came out of the dense jungle and shot an arrow trying to hit the helicopter.

Not much is known about these tribal people: the language is strange and the habits are unknown.

Their dwellings are hidden in the dense, closed forest, so there is no clue as to how they live.

All that is known is that Sentinels are hunters and gatherers, as they do not cultivate anything, it seems.

They live on fruits, fish, tubers, wild pigs, lizards and honey.

India has sovereignty over the Northern Sentinel, but it is believed that the people of that island do not even know what India is.

After several unsuccessful attempts to reach friendly contact, the Indian government finally stepped aside and banned all visits to the island.

The Indian Navy imposed a 3-mile protection zone to keep tourists, explorers and others busy at a distance.

Accidental encounters still occur and none of them ends well.

There are several horror stories of how Sentinelians have treated ‘guests’: most people return from the island terrified and injured when they return.

In 1896, a fugitive from the British Andamans prisons, drifted at sea and ended up by accident on the island’s shores.

A few days later, a search party found the body on a beach, pierced by arrows and with a cut throat.

In 1974, a group went there to make a documentary and the film’s director was wounded by an arrow in the leg.

Contact attempts

Indian anthropologist T.N. Pandit made several government-sponsored trips to the Northern Sentinel in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

“Sometimes, they turn their backs on us and sit on their hips like they are going to defecate,” he said.

“This is a symbol of insult to them, as we were not welcome.” Surprisingly, there was only one case where an outsider did not face an aggressive reception.

On January 4, 1991, a group of 28 people, composed of men, women and children, approached Pandit and his entourage.

“It was unbelievable how they volunteered for our meeting,” he said.

“They must have decided that it was time to get in touch with other people, or they were studying us”.

In 1991, Indian anthropologist Madhumala Chattopadhyay managed to establish a brief contact after several incursions to the island, but the project was eventually suspended to protect the tribe.

After these attempts, the local population closed again and, since then, never allowed any approach of “outsiders”.

Unfortunately, the last contact with the inhabitants of the island, in 2006, was not as good as expected.

Two fishermen were killed while fishing illegally within the island’s protection strip.

Sentinelans are among the last communities that live without contact with globalization.

Perhaps it is better to leave them as they are, as bringing them into civilization can be extremely negative.

After all, they may not be immune to various diseases that exist today and it can be extremely complicated to adapt to the modern world.
