How many civilizations have existed on Earth?
Modern scientists have long preferred to limit the history of human civilization to a few thousand years, to which the chasm of the savage and cruel Stone Age supposedly extended.
But the discovery of ancient cities such as Chatal-Guyuk in Asia Minor or Jericho in Israel has made us look at the matter from a somewhat different angle and extended the cultural period of mankind’s existence by about four to five. millennia.
However, according to ufoac.com , when it comes to the written evidence of the ancients, science continues to consider only those that it recognized decades or even a hundred years ago.
Meanwhile, there are documents that make it possible to calculate the history of Earth civilization by at least several tens of thousands of years.
Paradoxes of serious scientists
George Sinzell had the reputation of being an outstanding historian. He lived at the turn of the 8th and 9th centuries after the birth of Christ.
For many years Syncellus preached in Palestine, was the personal secretary of Patriarch Tarasius of Constantinople (784-806), after whose death he retired to a monastery, where he devoted himself to writing . Syncellus’ most important work is considered the “Chosen Chronography”.
To create it, the historian relied on the works of such ancient authors as Josephus, Manetho and the famous Babylonian priest Beros, in whose works you can find a lot of very unusual things.
George Syncellus’ scholarship even enabled him to reasonably criticize the father of church history, Eusebius of Caesarea, for falsifying Egyptian chronology.
The Egyptians have a certain plate called “Old Chronicle”; it contains 30 dynasties over 113 generations over a period of 36,525 years. The first group (dynasty) of princes – Aurites, the second – Mestroenes, the third – Egyptians.
The “Chronicle” says “No time was fixed for Hephaestus, since it was both day and night. Hephaestus’ son, Helios, ruled for 30,000 years. Then, Chronos and the 12 gods ruled for 3,984 years; next were the demigods, eight in number, who reigned for 217 years. »
Syncellus himself, in particular, wrote:
“The philosopher Simplicius of Cilicia, one of the founders of the Alexandrian school of neoplatonism, which was distinguished by its wheeler-dealing character and its strict attitude towards facts, reported in the sixth century that he had heard that the Egyptians were making astronomical observations for 630,000 years.
“Even if he were wrong, and it’s more like months, it’s an impressive 52,500 years. »
The quick-witted and sarcastic historian of late-Romantic philosophy Diogenes Laertius established that the Egyptians made their astronomical calculations 48,863 years before Alexander the Great. The encyclopedic writer of the first half of the 5th century, Marcian Capella, claimed that the Egyptians secretly studied the stars for 40,000 years before revealing their phenomenal knowledge to the world.
Zodiac – evidence from antiquity
Even Manetho, whose list of dynasties of pharaohs is the cornerstone of modern Egyptology, cited information in favor of a much deeper antiquity of Egyptian civilization than is believed today. In the surviving fragments of his “History of Egypt”, we find the following words:
“The first man [or God] of Egypt is Hephaestus, whom the Egyptians also know as the discoverer of fire. The heir of his son Helios [the Sun] was Sosis, then in turn Kronos, Osiris, Typhon, the brother of Osiris, and finally. Horus, son of Osiris and Isis. They were the first rulers of Egypt.
“After that, the royal power passed from one to the other, without interruption, up to Bidis for 13,900 years. Then for 1255 years gods and demigods ruled, and again for 1817 years another royal family took over the land. »
“Then 30 other Memphis kings reigned for 1790 years, and after them 10 other kings reigned for 350 years. Then came the reign of the ‘spirits of the dead’, which lasted 5,813 years. »
“The arrangement of the stars, as it was about 90 thousand years ago, is demonstrated on the zodiac which decorates the ceiling of the Temple of Hathor in the Egyptian city of Dendera. »
“In fact, this zodiac is so magnificent that the original ceiling was removed and transported to Paris during Napoleon I’s Egyptian expedition, and a plaster copy was placed in place of the original. »
“The astrological symbols of the zodiac, as the British ufologist Raymond Drake writes, according to the precession of the equinoxes, signify the passage of three and a half great cycles of 25,800 years each. »
The originally constructed temple has long since crumbled to dust, but the unique zodiac has been copied by initiates who have sought to preserve this evidence of the deep knowledge of the ancients.
The dating of 90,000 years shocks our modern minds, accustomed to limiting the history of civilization to four or five millennia, but similar zodiacs have been found in the temples of northern India, and on clay tablets. Babylonian.
It is curious that the Chaldeans (Semitic pastoral tribes who inhabited the outskirts of Babylonia in the first half of the first millennium BC) also had so-called king lists that ran with dates of unimaginable antiquity.
The history of the Sumerians who preceded the Babylonians in Mesopotamia, according to these lists, began with the creation of man. In the Bible, we speak of 10 ancestors, if we count from Adam; among the Sumerians they were called the most ancient kings, and they are also 10 in number.
The ancestors of Israel were distinguished by extraordinary longevity, but the “age of Methuselah”, compared with the life expectancy of the Sumerian rulers, does not seem so high.
According to one of these king lists, in which only eight kings appear, they reigned for 241,200 years. According to another, which mentions the 10, – 456 thousand years. After that, the flood broke out, but humanity was reborn thanks to the righteous survivor Utnapishtim. A new dynasty of kings appeared, which the descendants perceived as gods and demigods.
This dynasty had 33 kings, who reigned for a total of 24,510 years. After that there were several other less enduring dynasties, but the story that science takes seriously today begins with the death of the epic hero Gilgamesh, around the beginning of the 26th century BC.
How many people were there altogether?
Very unusual information about the past of mankind is also contained in the mythology of the Aztecs and Mayans. It is not even one, but several human beings, which definitely echoes the teachings of theosophists.
The Codex Vaticanus – a veritable monument to Aztec culture – says that the first race on Earth were giants, and they died of starvation. The second humanity was the victim of a grandiose fire. Some of these peoples, according to legend, were able to survive by creating fortified tunnels and chambers under the surface of the planet.
Traces of branching underground structures, the age of which can hardly be estimated, are found in many corners of our planet. Such structures are found in South America, and in the African Sahara Desert, and in India, and in Western Europe, and throughout the world. For example, in Karelia and in the Zhiguli mountains.
The third humanity in Aztec myths is called intelligent monkeys, who died as a result of a cataclysm. The fourth race was similar to modern humans and drowned in the waters of the flood. The fifth lives and develops to this day.
The Codex Rios and the Codex Telleriano-Remensis are documents copied in Latin script in the Aztec language from earlier sources. They also talk about four beings who lived before present-day humanity and who, again, were destroyed by global catastrophes, albeit in a different order.
Aztec sources attribute four to five thousand years to the existence of each of these human beings. But there is a curious nuance here.
The Aztecs and the Mayas, in addition to the usual dating, also worked on a certain number of so-called sacred years, the duration of which is, for example, -20 years for the sacred year of katun, 400 years for the baktun, eight thousand years for the peak-tun, and 64 million years for the longest of this series of alautun! It would therefore also be necessary to specify which years, in fact, the Mesoamerican Indians are talking about in these chronicles.
Of course, this type of dating sounds downright scary, even delusional. We could perhaps brush them aside, as serious science generally does.
However, the artifacts of unimaginable antiquity, which have been discovered in different parts of our planet by researchers and random people, I think prompt us to take more seriously the “quirks” of the ancient documents cited in this article. . To sum up our little research, I want to draw your attention to the fact that we still do not have reliable information. Yes, there are tunnels, but that does not mean any cataclysm.
The texts do not answer the question: where do these other races come from? Why weren’t the Aztecs and Mayans destroyed in those unfortunate times? Unfortunately, there are no answers to these questions yet. But we will continue to research and keep you informed.
