Of tiauanaco-the ancient city of Peru
About the time of the creation of a large complex of stone structures on the southern shore of the Alpine lake Titicaca in Peru and its builders are still debated by scientists. According to some, this now ruined city, received the historians the name of Tiauanaco, and in ancient times was called Typical – “the Stone in the Center”, was founded in II century BC, Other experts argue that the settlement and its majestic temples arose between II and IX centuries ad. The most impressive proof of the power of an unknown civilization that left their traces here, is, of course, used for the construction of the great stones, the weight of some of them is from 20 to 70 tons, and the length of 8-11 metres. According to the researcher of ancient cultures Clemente Markham, such monoliths can only be found in structures of Ancient Egypt. The Spaniards, who conquered Peru in the XVI century, was interested in the “authorship” of such impressive buildings. However, living on these lands Aymara Indians answered in monosyllables: “it was built long before the Incas. Moreover, according to the ancestors, appeared suddenly, in one night. “
Even in the ruins of these ancient structures are fascinating. Scientists are especially amazing ruins of an almost square building, with walls length of 130-135 meters. Masonry posted a surprisingly thorough and consists of very massive stones, which suggests: the building had to withstand a strong attack of the enemy.Two stone statues that have received names in honor of the opening of their scholars, – the Bennett Monolith and Monolith Ponce of Sangines, amaze with their huge size and generalized decorative style of performance figures, faces, rectangular head.
The complex includes buildings, conventionally called “Palace of the sarcophaguses”, “Palace Chari-Kama”, a monument “Gate of the Sun”.
“Gate of the Sun” monolith of size 3×3,8 m, which cut through the opening. In the upper part of the gate is an ornamental decoration, with many symbolic signs. In the centre of the reliefs stands surrounded by rays the face of the sun God or, as some researchers believe, the highest deity of the Inca Viracocha. According to a number scientists, this monument is not just a religious building, and knowledge repository and a tool for timing. Anyway, it is an ancient calendar counts the image on the Gate of the Sun archaeologist Arthur poznansky, Bolivian Austrian origin who devoted his life to the study of Tiauanaco.
With this amazing building, as, indeed, with other facilities, related research and hypotheses English Colonel James Churchward. He was looking for all over the world evidence of the existence of the continent, which was a protocivilization, My killed in a natural disaster in the Pacific. The Colonel studied the ancient scrolls and manuscripts, miraculously survived after the mass destruction by the conquistadors monuments of the Inca culture. Included in the ensemble of Gates of the Sun or “great stone”, set on the shores of lake Titicaca, at a height of 13,500 feet above the level of the Pacific ocean, were introduced to the researcher evidence that lived here in ancient times the peoples were depending on My country and its rulers. In his work “Ancient continent My” (1926) Colonel tries to decode the marks on the stone and to determine the time of death of complex structures. He writes: “At a time when it was built, this temple is decorated with magnificent stone carvings, Andes mountains did not exist; they haven’t rose over the plains of Western South America. This country, a large part of its population and the temple itself were destroyed, it is the risen mountains and monolith in the result, split into two parts.
Although the sacred alphabet was used for a very long time, the stone not written any of his letters. The image represents the earliest form of writing – a picture-text. It reads as easily as a modern printed book. All that is necessary for reading, is understanding the values of the characters.
Using the symbols of the Homeland and the signs that were used in the colonies, I’ll try to decipher this image.
The first thing that attracts attention when looking at the picture, is a stylized human figure; in it the ornaments are widely used triple elements. Three is the number associated with My. Over the head of the figure – the Sultan of three feathers under her feet – a three-step pedestal. On either side are depicted by three dots. Bib, if you can call it that, consists of three rectangles – character My.
Sceptre in his left hand is decorated with three heads of parrots. The shape of the mouth are stylized – almost a rectangle. Thus, the signs of My repeated nine times. The head is surrounded by rays divided into four groups. The result is a complete circle of rays, which are a part of the symbol meaning: “My, Empire of the Sun”. At the end of each beam “reading”: “Ahau, the King of Kings”. So, the General meaning: “Empire of the Sun rule the kings of the four countries of the world.” Parrots head on the end of the scepter are symbols of the colonies, totems Mayan Queen; in combination with the scepter they indicate that the land of the Maya was subordinate to the state colony”.
James Churchward refers to the so-called “Transcom manuscript”, which allegedly mentioned the existence of a Mayan colony in the Nile Delta around 16 thousand years ago that can be attributed to the city of Tiauanaco to the same time. In his research, the Colonel anticipated the work of researchers of the late twentieth century aimed at finding the connection of ancient civilizations with the General cosmology, astronomy, mathematics. One of these researchers, Graham Hancock, and Churchward, appealed to the ruins of Tiauanaco. He denied the opinion of modern archaeologists, Dating the complex to the period between 1500 BC and 900 BC. “tying” buildings to the banks of the lake in which, according to Geology, it existed for 10 000 years. In addition, the historian said that the animal depicted in the semi-underground temple near the figure of the VIR-Kochi, very similar to Toxocara, and this, according to crypto-Solovov, died in the vicinity of the Andes, another 12,000 years ago, as well as habotai elephant like creature presented on the Gate of the Sun. Finally, Hancock followed by Arthur Poznansky suggested to compare Gate of the Sun with the cycles of the sun movement. Explaining its position, Hancock says: “According to calculations poznań, if the Tiauanaco was focused on the position of the Sun in the summer and winter solstice, the original layout of the city was made over 17,000 years ago. Based on the latest measurements of the cosmic satellites, the American paleoastronomy Neil steed said this number: it is approximately 12 000 years”. This conclusion allows us to take more seriously the hypothesis of an English Colonel, who, as it turned out, was not so desperate dreamer.
And yet the twentieth century was unable to solve the mystery of ancient ruins, lost in the Peruvian Andes. With a strange gate 290-day calendar. Majestic temples, created by unknown builders thousands of years ago. These stone mystery on the shores of an Alpine lake waiting for new generations of researchers who may be more fortunate, than our contemporaries.
