We believe yes, and there are numerous incredible archaeological findings which indicate that thousands, and even millions of years ago, civilizations with extremely advanced technology existed on our planet and just like us, called Earth ‘home’. These ancient civilizations could have had far superior knowledge and technology than we have today. And what if all of mankind’s ‘modern inventions’ are nothing more than re-inventions of the past? Re-inventions from a time when a different people inhabited the planet and disappeared mysteriously from the face of the Earth.
Is it possible that all of these mysterious findings can explain, once and for all mankind’s amnesia? Because it seems that humans are a species suffering from it…
Would the existence of prehistoric civilizations explain the construction of incredible ancient sites such as Puma Punku, Tiahuanaco, Teotihuacan and the Pyramids of Egypt? Is it possible that our ancestors re-discovered this lost technology and used it in their own lifetime?
Let’s check out some of the revolutionary ancient technologies that still baffle researchers.
The Ancient Chinese seismograph
Over 1500 years before the invention of the modern-day seismograph, Chinese scientists Zhang Heng managed to record an earthquake that originate 480 kilometers away. The invention referred to as the seismoscope is incredibly surprising both by its beauty (an elegant vase with carved bronze animals) and its accuracy. Until today, no one knows exactly how the mysterious device works, but nevertheless it predates the modern-day seismograph by more than 1500 years.
The 1.8 billion year old “Nuclear Reactor”
Did you know that in Africa there is a 1.8 billion year old nuclear reactor? Although mainstream scientists argue that this is in fact a naturally occurring Nuclear Reactor, many scientists argue that this is in fact impossible suggesting that the conditions for the nuclear reactor are far too precise to have occurred by itself as the result of Mother Nature. As you can see, our planet gets mysteriously beautiful by the minute and we realize how little we know about our past and everything that happened before ‘civilization’.
The Baghdad Batteries
1938 the world was introduced to the mysterious Baghdad Batteries. An ancient device, believed to be more than 2000 years old that was used, according to some researchers, by ancient mankind to power certain electrical devices. It is proven that the Baghdad Batteries can actually generate electricity. Is it possible that the Baghdad Batteries are in fact the missing link to mankind’s ancient technology?
Piri Reis: Map Impossible
Did you know that the Piri Reis map depicts Antarctica before the continent was covered by ice? Yeah… it’s one of the most mysterious maps in the world actually. The map Created by cartographer and sailor Piri Reis, which was based on far more ancient maps shows Antarctica as we have never seen it. The map also depicts a piece of land that seems to be connected to South America, a part of land that could have corresponded to the Antarctic coast in prehistoric times.
300,000 year old Nanostructures: Advanced ancient technology
Found in the Ural Mountains in Russia, these objects have caused quite a buzz since their discovery. The tiny structures are believed to have been the product of an extremely ancient civilization that was capable of developing nanotechnology about 300,000 years ago. The age of these mysterious nanostructures have placed them in the list of “out of place artifacts” given the fact that researchers estimate them to be around 300,000 years old. The Russian Academy of sciences performed several tests on these mysterious objects and the results were quite interesting. Researchers found out that the largest pieces that were unearthed were made almost entirely out of copper and the smaller ones from tungsten and molybdenum.
The materials were submitted to a more extensive research a couple of years after their discovery to find out more about the mysterious objects and their composition and according to the Russian Academy of Science and their department for Geology; the metals have not originated in nature on their own, meaning that they are components that have a artificial technological origin, in other words they were manufactured.
