A 60 Ton Sarcophagus Has Been Found at Abydos


The University of Pennsylvania has discovered the tomb of little-known 13th Dynasty pharaoh Sobekhotep I at the archaeological site of Abydos 300 miles south of Cairo.11

The team unearthed the massive 60-ton red quartzite sarcophagus last year but was not able to identify its owner until last week when they found fragments of a stele inscribed with the pharaoh’s cartouche and depicting him enthroned.tomb-inscription-fragment

The tomb was built out of limestone from the Tura quarries near Cairo and was originally topped by a pyramid, now gone. The handful of other 13th Dynasty pharaonic tombs that have been discovered are in the royal necropolis of Dashur, 25 miles south of Cairo, and Saqqara, 19 miles south of Cairo.
They too were topped by pyramids, only parts of which survive.

Inside the tomb, archaeologists found canopic jars that once held the pharaoh’s viscera so they could be reunited with their mummified owner in the afterlife and some gold funerary objects.
This is a highly significant find because the history of the 13th Dynasty rulers is nebulous.

Historians aren’t even sure of when the dynasty began, 1803 B.C. and 1781 B.C. are the leading contenders never mind who ruled when.

Antiquities Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said in a statement that Sobekhotep I “Is likely the first who ruled Egypt at the start of the 13th dynasty during the second intermediate period”
But there is no consensus on that point among Egyptologists.

According to the Turin King List, a papyrus written during the reign of Ramesses II (1279–1213 B.C.) that lists all the kings of Egypt up until that time, grouping them together in vaguely dynastic clusters and noting the dates of their reigns, puts Sobekhotep somewhere in the 13th Dynasty but it’s unclear where it begins and the 12th

There’s also some confusion about whether the Turin list is Sobekhotep I or Sobekhotep II, another pharaoh of the 13th Dynasty of the same name who may or may not be the same person as Sobekhotep I.

Before now, other than his presence on the Turin King List all we know about Sobekhotep I has come from reliefs in an Abydos chapel.

According to Antiquities Ministry official Ayman El-Damarani, Sobekhotep I ruled Egypt for four and a half years, but that presumes he’s the first pharaoh of the dynasty who is known from various sources as Khutawyre, Wegaf and Sekhemre Khutawy Sobekhotep.

University of Copenhagen Egyptologist Kim Ryholt places Sekhemre Khutawy as the dynasty founder, with Sobekhotep I ruling for about three years between 1780 and 1777 B.C.

With all these disputed and conflicting sources, you can see why the discovery of the pharaoh’s tomb is a major boon to Egyptologists. It has the potential to answer a lot of questions.

The Black Knight Satellite: Space Junk Or 13,000-Year-Old Alien Tech?

The Black Knight Satellite, a 13,000-year-old Alien Satellite?

Space Junk or alien “Satellite”, the black knight as it’s called today– has been around for quite some time now. It has been identified as an Alien Satellite and even though there are images of this object, many remain skeptical about its purpose and origin.

The discovery of the Black Knight Satellite is perhaps one of the most (in)famous space objects to orbit our Planet. This “Artificial Satellite” has caused major media interest since the late 50’s, and it has become one of the most talked about objects in space. First thought to be a Russian spy satellite, the Black Knight has gripped the interest of millions worldwide.

According to monitoring agencies around the world, The Black knight has been transmitting radio signals for over 50 years now.

The USA and Soviet Union have shown particular interest in this “unidentified space object”. Since its discovery this satellite has interested countries such as Sweden and enthusiasts worldwide. One of them is a Ham Radio operator who apparently had decoded a series of signals received from the UFO Satellite and interpreted it as a star-chart centered on the Epsilon Bootes Star System and that the Black Knight  originated from this System 13.000 years ago. (The Epsilon Boötis is a double star in the northern constellation of Boötes. It has the traditional names Izar and Pulcherrima. The star system can be viewed with the unaided eye at night, but resolving the pair with a small telescope is challenging; an aperture of 76 mm (3.0 in) or greater is required. — Wikipedia)

But according to many, this discovery was made much earlier than we thought. Rumors are that it was Nikola Tesla the first man to “intercept” a signal from this otherworldly satellite in 1899 after building a high-voltage radio device in Colorado Springs. After Tesla’s discovery in the next 30 to 50 years the signal was being intercepted more frequently until it was apparently “decoded”. Since the 1930’s Astronomers worldwide have been reporting strange radio signals which allegedly come from the “Black Knight”.

In 1957, Dr. Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it while taking pictures of Sputnik II as it passed over Caracas. The strange thing was that unlike the Sputnik one and two, The Black Knight Satellite orbited Earth from East to West. Sputnik one and two orbited West to East using Earth’s natural rotation to maintain orbit.

The story of the Black Knight made its media debut in the 1940’s when the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner wrote about the “Satellite” on May 14th, 1954. The Time Magazine wrote about it on the seventh of March, 1960. Here is what they said about it.

Three weeks ago, headlines announced that the U.S. had detected a mysterious “dark” satellite wheeling overhead on a regular orbit. There was nervous speculation that it might be a surveillance satellite launched by the Russians, and it brought the uneasy sensation that the U.S. did not know what was going on over its own head. But last week the Department of Defense proudly announced that the satellite had been identified. It was a space derelict, the remains of an Air Force Discoverer satellite that had gone astray. Read the complete story by visiting the Time Magazine website.

The Articles of 1954:

St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner, Article about the unidentified satellite
St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner articles about the unidentified satellite.

On August 23, 1954, the technology magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology released a story that angered the Pentagon, who were trying to keep the information secret. The short article stated:

Pentagon scare over the observance of two previously unobserved satellites orbiting the earth has dissipated with the identification of the objects as natural, not artificial satellites. Dr. Lincoln LaPaz, expert on extraterrestrial bodies from the University of New Mexico, headed the identification project. One satellite is orbiting about 400 miles out, while the other track is 600 miles from the earth. Pentagon thought momentarily the Russians had beaten the U.S. to space explorations.

Interest in the Black Knight was higher each year, in 1957, an unknown “object” was seen “shadowing”  the Sputnik 1 Spacecraft. According to reports, the “unidentified object” was in Polar orbit, at that time The United States nor the Russians possessed the technology to maintain a spacecraft in Polar Orbit.  According to our research, the first Polar-orbiting satellite was launched in 1960.

Polar orbits are often used for earth-mapping, earth observation, capturing the earth as time passes from one point and reconnaissance satellites. This would put the Black Knight in the category of an observational Satellite, the only question here is, who placed The Black Knight in a polar orbit and for what purpose?

The Object continued to amaze Astronomers World Wide. In the 1960’s the Black Knight was located once again in Polar Orbit. Astronomers and Scientists calculated the object’s weight to be over 10 tons which would be at that time the Heaviest Artificial Satellite to orbit our Planet. The Black Knight’s Orbit was unlike any other object orbiting Earth, as it was moving twice as fast when compared to any other man-made Spacecraft.

There are also several reports that the Grumman Aircraft Corporation gave much importance to this mysterious “Satellite”, On September 3, 1960, seven months after the satellite was first detected by radar, a tracking camera at Grumman Aircraft Corporation’s Long Island factory took a photograph of the Black Knight. At that point, people all over the world started identifying the object in the sky, which could be seen as a red light moving at higher speed compared to other satellites in an East to West orbit. The Grumman Aircraft Corporation formed a committee to study the data received from the observations made, but nothing was made public.

In 1963, Gordon Cooper was launched into space. On his final orbit, he reported seeing a glowing green object in front of his capsule in the distance moving towards his Spacecraft. The Muchea tracking station, in Australia, which Cooper reported the object to, picked up this Unidentified object on Radar traveling East to West. NBC reported this, but after Cooper had returned to Earth, the Reporters were not allowed to ask Cooper about the unidentified object. The official explanation given to Coopers sighting were “high levels of carbon dioxide, which caused hallucinations“.

The Black Knight has been a topic of interest all around the world. Until today, most of the “official” information on the mysterious object is kept safe and away from society. No one has answered some of the most simple and logical questions to ask, who placed that “satellite” in Polar orbit? To what purpose?

Is the Black Knight an Extraterrestrial satellite sent to Earth to study the Human race? Did the Satellite attempt to communicate with the human race? Have we ignored attempted communications? One thing is for sure; The Black Knight remains as one of the most mysterious objects to orbit our planet. Is there a connection between this (in)famous space object and ancient mankind’s achievements?

Ancient Power Sources of the Gods: Advanced technology and our ancestors


What sounds crazier, The Egyptian Pyramids producing wireless energy? Or transporting stone blocks that weigh over 100 tons using wooden rollers… where there are no trees? Can all of this be attributed to Ancient Power Sources?

How advanced are we as a civilization today? With all of our technology and knowledge in different sciences, are we more advanced when compared to ancient humankind? To civilizations like the Egyptians or the Sumerians?

Is it possible that ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians possessed advanced technology that helped them build the pyramids and other unusual structures? Is it possible that ancient mankind had the ability to harness electricity thousands of years ago? All of this and more is possible according to the Ancient Alien theory and archeologists around the world.

If Ancient Civilizations did not possess advanced technology nor Ancient Power Sources, how else would you explain them lifting and transporting huge blocks of stone like The Trilithon at the Temple of Jupiter, Baalbek, Lebanon that weighs over 4.5 million pounds? Or The Western Stone in Jerusalem, Israel which weighs 1.2 million pounds and The Ramesseum statue located in Thebes, Egypt which weighs over 2  million pounds?

How could all of this be achieved without electricity? High power machines for transport? Lasers and other high-tech tools for cutting and shaping? Ancient mankind must have had Ancient Power Sources, ancient technology.

All over the world, we can find incredible ancient sites that challenge our very own technology today. From Ollantaytambo, Puma Punku to the Great Pyramid in Egypt, all of those sites are amazing achievements of ancient mankind, the only question is, WHO gave them the technology to complete these projects? What is funny to some people is the fact that there are archeologists that believe that all of this was achieved with slave labor and simple tools.

There are temples all over the world that were built using blocks of stone that range from 50 to 200 tons, there are even heavier blocks than that, so they’re just far too big for people who didn’t have the wheel or the pulley for example, which could have facilitated them to move these blocks from the quarries to their destination, it just doesn’t make sense.

In February of 2012, in the Stone Valley Materials Quarry in Riverside, California a 680,000-pound granite monolith was prepared to travel over 100 miles to become part of an exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. A 1.4 million pound crane and a 44-axel tractor-trailer rig with over 2400 horsepower were needed to move the rock. Building steel girders underneath it was required, 208 tires were placed underneath those steel girders. One power unit was required to pull it and another one to push it, and still, after all, that effort the granite monolith was able to be moved about five miles an hour.

Transportation of "the Levitated Mass"
Transportation of “the Levitated Mass.”

The boulder called “Levitated Mass,” is a gigantic payload by modern construction standards, but it small compared to the gigantic blocks of stone moved by ancient civilizations in the past. It is almost impossible to take the 340-ton rock and move it without modern day technology which still has issues transporting it. How did ancient people move monoliths, some over five times the size of  Levitated Mass without the aid of high-powered machines?

Ollantaytambo in Peru is perhaps one of the best examples of the use of high-tech tools in ancient history. The walls of this ancient mountain stronghold seem to talk about what some experts believe to have been thousands of craftsmen, shaping and cutting solid stone with a precision that today could only be matched with high-powered machine tools. Ancient Power Sources perhaps?

At Ollantaytambo, we have these rectangular shaped stones which were removed from a mountain about sixty miles away which are made out of andesite– which by the way is incredibly hard to remove, and these sections were so precisely removed that you wouldn’t be able to find a single scratch or sharp edge on the surface. What was the power source that ancient mankind could have used in Ollantaytambo to power “machines” that could cut, shape and transport these gigantic blocks of andesite?


Is it possible that civilizations of antiquity were able to achieve these amazing accomplishments with the use energy-driven technologies? And if so what was the source of that power? Ancient Power Sources?

In 1938, the museum director of The National Museum of Iraq discovered terracotta pots and copper cylinders in the archives that may have been used as galvanic cells.  These 2,000-year-old devices called “Baghdad Batteries” are believed to predate the invention of the cell battery by more than 1,000 years. Archeologists today think that these “batteries” may have been used to electroplate gold onto silver for decorative jewelry.

According to researchers, The “Baghdad Batteries” can generate around 4 volts, and these are relatively “small” sized artifacts. Now imagine these “Baghdad Batteries” with approximately five or six feet? They would create much more power, thirty, forty or up to fifty volts which would be enough to power some sort of machinery.

370 miles south of the Giza Plateau stands the Hathor Temple where we can find further evidence of technology in ancient times.

Approximately 4,000 years old, the halls of this monument are lined with curious images, but one relief depicts what many ancient astronaut theorists believe to be proof that the ancients used power. They call it “The Dendera Bulb.” Perhaps a good example of Ancient Power Sources.


What is incredibly interesting is the fact that on the wall relief in the temple, we see that the bulb is actually plugged into what appears to be a power source. Is this enough evidence that can prove that ancient Egyptians had advanced technology, electricity specifically and that they could use this technology as we use it today, to light a room or to power a device that would allow us to transport something that is too heavy.

Did our ancestors have the understanding of how to generate power thousands of years before modern man did? Or is it possible that they received this knowledge and technology from otherworldly sources, as ancient astronaut theorists and researchers believe? Could ancient man have received Ancient Power Sources from beings far more technologically advanced?

Is it possible that these “Gods that descended from above” were actually extraterrestrial beings that made it possible for ancient mankind to harness electricity, transport construction materials and use power tools?

Could the Great Pyramid of Giza have been built to serve as a power plant and not a royal tomb as some researchers and archeologists suggest? What we have been a very, very precise building that has the precision of a fraction of an inch. It’s something that is very noteworthy and not indicative of a simple agrarian culture without technology and advanced knowledge. You can think of the Great Pyramid as a machine, an Ancient Power Source? But just how could the Great Pyramid have been used as a power plant? Generating energy from its core? Researchers believe clues can be found by exploring the surface underneath the Pyramid.

In 2000, maritime engineer John Cadman proposed a theory that the Egyptians pumped water from the nearby Nile River into a small chamber underneath the Great Pyramid. The pump could then create intense hydraulic pressure that would cause the entire pyramid to vibrate.

In the subterranean chamber there is some evidence that shows that there had been water present in it and that there’s water erosion on the floor, and then up in the thin area. And then also, because it was a hydraulic pulse generator. So you have a rarefaction wave which is an extremely low-pressure wave, which would have struck the ceiling and the ceiling is actually chipped. And that would have been from the actual compression waves hitting the ceiling. – John Cadman. 

In the Queen’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid traces of zinc and hydrochloric acid have been discovered. Scientists suggest that chemicals coming in through the northern shaft were hydrated zinc and the other chemical coming through the southern shaft and into the chamber were dilute hydrochloric acid. There are evidence and trace on the walls.  Dunn suggests that these two chemicals were poured down through the shafts and then mixed together inside the Queen’s Chamber, triggering combustion.

When you bring these two liquids together, a chemical reaction occurs, and a product of that chemical reaction is hydrogen.  Dunn suggested that the hydrogen gas traveled from the Queen’s Chamber into the King’s Chamber, the vibrations from the subterranean pool energized the hydrogen atoms transforming them into a microwave energy beam.

Is it really possible that ancient Egyptians built the Great Pyramid as a power plant, obtaining incredible energy from it? Is it possible that energy ran the advanced tools of early builders and devices like the Dendera Bulb?  But most importantly who gave them this knowledge and technology? At this point EVERYTHING is possible. Looking at this in a skeptical way you could say, well you are out of your mind, but then again where is the evidence that proves the “Ancient Alien” theories wrong?

At Abu Gorab Memphis, Egypt we find The sun temple.  In 1898, an excavation team with the Berlin Museum discovered the base of a massive obelisk estimated to have once stood at over 160 feet tall. According to the ancient Egyptian building texts from Edfu, Abu Gorab was known as the “Place of the Gods.” Egyptologists know it as a place where the ancients connected with divine energies.

There’s evidence that obelisks all over the world are tapping into this natural energy that’s part of the Earth. The concept is to take the natural energies of the Earth and manipulate them. It’s a subtle energy, but for those who have the devices and technology to see and measure this energy, it’s something that can be used. What is interesting about a major number of obelisks is that many of them are constructed out of granite a stone containing high concentrations of energy-responsive quartz crystal. Because of its crystalline structure, quartz has the ability to convert the Earth’s natural electrical vibrations into usable energy by a property known as piezoelectricity.

Crystals are literally a tool and technology that’s essential for transmitting energy, and that is taking energy in one state and essentially converting it to another state. Ancient Astronaut theorists believe that ancient cultures that erected obelisks had some understanding of the high-tech properties of quartz and that they might have used them to transmit this energy over vast distances.

Tesla_fig14But is it really possible to transmit power through the air? It is according to Nicola Tesla, who in July 1899 claimed to have invented a way to transmit electricity through the air, wirelessly, all over the world by harnessing the Earth’s natural conductivity… or what Tesla referred to as “standing waves.” Tesla talked about giant transmitters could send and receive limitless amounts of electricity, flowing like invisible water. One of the key components in his system was quartz crystal. (Check out our article on the Black Knight and Tesla)

Tesla tried to build a system of wireless power. He built the Wardenclyffe Tower on Long Island in  New York., he was going to hook this tower up to a power plant and he was going to broadcast electricity. According to him, vehicles would be able to draw power from the tower and obtain free clean energy.

But was Tesla the first to think of this type of wireless energy? Or did humanity discover this type of energy thousands of years before him? Could the Great Pyramid be equivalent to Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower? Transmitting free energy and providing power to vehicles and equipment?

We know today that the Great Pyramid contains significant amounts of quartz crystal, the question we ask is could the Great Pyramid together with obelisks around the world made up a global network of free energy?

The pyramids were actually geo-mechanical devices they were “attached” to  Earth, and they were tuned in a way so that they would vibrate with the frequencies of the Earth and they converted the energies of the Earth into electromagnetic energy.

Is it really possible that Ancient Mankind possessed these technologies thousands of years ago? That they used them in ways, we do not understand? There are so many pieces of evidence scattered across the globe, and we are only beginning to find out slowly what ancient civilizations were capable of.

13000 Year Old Satellite?


[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEuDKzP_MKI&w=590]

A look at the black knight UFO / satellite, all images have been checked and are genuine non edited NASA originals.
The UFO was broadcasting signals and was being monitored not only by the USA and Soviet Union, but also by other countries such as Sweden and a host of Ham Radio enthusiasts.


One such Ham Radio operator decoded a series of signals received from the UFO Satellite and declared it to be a star-chart centered on the Epsilon Bootes Star System – But as it would have appeared from the Earth 13,000 years ago!

The UFO Satellite was actually photographed on September 3rd 1960, seven months after it first appeared on radar, by a tracking camera at the Grumman’s Aircraft Factory on Long Island.

It could sometimes be seen from the ground as a red glowing object moving in an east-west orbit at a time when most satellites moved West-east.A committee was convened to examine the UFO Satellite phenomenon, but this just quietly slipped away from the public view.

Three years later American Astronaut Gordon Cooper was launched into space on a twenty-two orbit mission.

During his final orbit, Cooper reported a UFO – he could see a glowing green object ahead of him in space which appeared to be closing in on his capsule. Cooper was reporting to the Muchea tracking station in Australia, who were able to detect the UFO on radar and confirmed that it was travelling in an East-West orbit.

The American News giant NBC got hold of the story, but were forbidden to ask Cooper about the UFO on his landing.

As pressure built up from questioners as to what actually happened up there, an “Official” explanation was issued – Astronaut Gordon Cooper, they said had hallucinated due to high levels of carbon dioxide in the space capsule.

Akhenaten the Heretic Pharaoh

Akhenaten was known before the fifth year of his reign as Amenhotep IV.  He was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled for 17 years and was the father of  Tutankhamun. He is especially noted for abandoning traditional Egyptian polytheism and introducing worship centered on the Aten.

The Aten, the sun-disk, is first referred to as a deity in The Story of Sinuhe from the 12th dynasty, in which the deceased king is described as rising as a god to the heavens and uniting with the sun-disk, the divine body merging with its maker. By analogy, the term “silver Aten” was sometimes used to refer to the moon. The solar Aten was extensively worshiped as a god in the reign of Amenhotep III when it was depicted as a falcon-headed man much like Ra. Akhenaten claimed, “There is only one god, my father. I can approach him by day, by night.” This was a very, very strange statement for the time. Akhenaten could have been the first monotheist in all of history, a precursor to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Muhammad as prophets who worshiped one god.

In the reign of Amenhotep III’s successor, Amenhotep IV or Akhenaten, the Aten became the central god of Egyptian state religion, Amenhotep IV changed his name to Akhenaten to reflect his close link with the new supreme deity.

Statue of Pharaoh Akhenaten, also known as Amenhotep IV by Richard Nowitz National Geographic. Akhenaten the Alien Pharaoh?

Akhenaten was one of the most controversial Pharaohs to rule Egypt. According to Egyptian Mythology he descended from the gods who arrived on Earth at the time of Tep Zepi and until today, people still believe that this Pharaoh did, in fact, come from the Stars.

In 1352 BC, Akhenaten ascended to the throne as the tenth pharaoh of the 18th dynasty. Almost immediately, he instituted a series of radical religious changes, including a ban on references to multiple gods. He abandoned traditional Egyptian polytheism and introduced the worship of the Aten.

An early inscription likens him to the sun as compared to the stars. Akhenaten, upon becoming Pharaoh ordered all the iconography of previous gods to be removed. He only allowed one emblem, which was a sun emblem, literally a sun disk with curious arms or rays pointing down.

According to writings by Akhenaten and poems that were written about him later on, he was visited by beings that descended from the sky, who told Akhenaten what he needed to do, and perhaps this is why he removed all other symbols of other gods from Egypt and implemented most of the changes he went on to do.

Akhenaten claimed to be a direct descendant of Aten and like any other pharaoh Akhenaten regarded himself to be divine, he was a God, but not only did he believe himself to be a god, the whole nation saw him as a god and worshiped him like one. During his time as Pharaoh Akhenaten made numerous changes but he also ordered the construction of a new capital city which he called Amarna and he dedicated it to the sun. Akhenaten spent the next ten years there and in that time he instituted changes in art and culture and on of the most notable changes were how he would be publicly depicted, and this was important because in Egyptian iconography, Pharaohs are depicted as these triangular shaped beings, strong shoulders and these very skinny waists, so basically they were depicted as being strong, like heroes, this would reflect power and it was very important but Akhenaten would go on and shows himself perhaps as he really is, a strange look, unlike other Pharaohs.

Strange body

The list of peculiarities is lengthy: an elongated skull, long neck, sunken eyes, thick thighs, long fingers, backward-turned knee joints, a prominent belly that suggests pregnancy and female-like breasts. The first thing that is strange is his elongated skull, and in all of the statues and depictions of him, we see this elongated skull. In general his body was sort of like a feminine and masculine mixture. 

The change in royal iconography of Akhenaten depicted him with a misshapen head, with a potbelly a sunken chest, elongated arms, larger thighs and this was totally opposed to the idealized iconography of traditional Egyptian artists that showed these big and strong looking Pharaohs.

Why would he make changes in the royal iconography to show him as this “weak” Pharaoh? His wife Nefertiti was also depicted having an elongated skull, did they have some kind of genetic anomaly that caused their heads– and body’s in general to be misshaped and disproportional? Or is there something more to this strange Pharaoh and his origins? Is it possible that he was actually a hybrid human being? with genes and DNA from Extraterrestrials? What is for sure is that he was not like other Pharaohs and human beings in general, when you look at his statues and depictions you immediately point out these strange, unlike humanoid characteristics. He is simply put a strange “human”.

This female head has an elongated skull, and is probably a child of Amenhotep IV/Akhenaten (1351-1334 BCE). The eye is hollow for inlaying. The piece is broken across the neck, and is a forgery executed in the 18th Dynasty, Amarna Period style. Courtesy and Credit of wikipedia.org

Dr. Braverman (Professor of dermatology at Yale University School of Medicine) attributes the king’s female form to familial gynecomastia, brought on by an inherited syndrome called aromatase excess syndrome. This diagnosis is the first to be associated with Akhenaten. As for the shape of Akhenaten’s head, Dr. Braverman attributes this to a condition called craniosynostosis, in which sutures, the fibrous joints of the head, fuse at an early age, and interfere with the process of skull formation. The specific condition, called a sagittal suture, is dominantly inherited. Dr. Braverman says he observed this abnormality in the king’s daughters as well as in Queen Hatshepsut, daughter of Tuthmosis I, founder of Akhenaten’s paternal line, and in King Tut, who ended this line.

After Akhenaten

After his reign the city of  Amarna was abandoned and temples to the sun were destroyed, images of Akhenaten were deliberately defaced and Ancient Egypt rapidly “recovered” and returned to its old ways, worshiping many gods.Today, many  Egyptologists believe that Akhenaten was actually forced to abdicate and flee from Egypt with his loyal followers.

In 1907, the actual body of Akhenaten was discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings by British archaeologist named Edward Ayrton. After unearthing Akhenaten’s mummified remains, Edward Ayrton was able to confirm that the ancient pharaoh’s skull was misshapen and elongated. Akhenaten was succeeded by his son, Tutankhamun, who became the most renowned pharaoh of all time. When his tomb was discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, Tutankhamun was also found to have an elongated skull. In February 2010, the results of DNA tests confirmed that he was the son of Akhenaten.

Ancient Engineering mysteries: How did Ancient Mankind move and cut megalithic blocks of stone?


The Western Stone, Jerusalem, Israel. 1.2 million pounds. The Ramesseum statue, Thebes, Egypt. Two million pounds. The Trilithon at the Temple of Jupiter, Baalbek, Lebanon. 4.8 million pounds.

So basically spread all over our planet, ancient sites reveal engineering mysteries that mainstream scientists believe were achieved with slave labor and simple tools but let’s be realistic, is that really possible? Is that the most logical explanation to all of these construction marvels?

Basically archaeology today tells us that all of these ancient civilization all over the world accomplished these amazing constructions as advanced as they are with sticks and stones, while today if you look at our methods of building and engineering, we need power tools and power machines to be able to move and manipulate stones and structures and even then we have a hard time performing certain tasks, so this explanation that mainstream archaeology gives us doesn’t seem to be logical at all, or something is missing in the puzzle.

There are temples that are built using blocks that range from 50 to 200 tons. They’re just far too big for people who didn’t have the wheel, who didn’t have the pulley, who didn’t have any facilities to move these blocks so thinking about slave labor and transportation doesn’t really seem to explain all of these achievements.

ancient builders

In February 2012. At the Stone Valley Materials Quarry in Riverside, California, a massive 680,000-pound granite monolith was prepped to travel over 100 miles to become part of an exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Workers from 100 utility crews, a 1.4 million pound crane, and a 44-axel tractor-trailer rig with over 2400 horsepower were needed to move the one rock. Today’s technology is barely able to handle these types of “rocks”, movement, logistics, and all of that makes it very difficult to believe that ancient builders were able to do this with their technology thousands of years ago. The boulder, called “Levitated Mass,” is a gigantic payload by modern construction standards… but it is small when compared to many of the solid blocks moved by ancient builders.

It is almost impossible to take the 340-ton rock and move it without modern-day technology, and so we raise the question how did our ancestors move monoliths, some over five times the size of Levitated Mass without the aide of high-powered machines? Researchers believe the ancients not only used power to move a solid stone but to cut it as well.

Ollantaytambo, Peru. The walls of this ancient mountain stronghold tell the story of what some experts believe to have been thousands of craftsmen, shaping and cutting solid stone with a precision that today could only be matched with high-powered machine tools.

We find huge cube-like sections of stone that have been removed from the mountain with such accuracy that we can’t find a scratch on the surface. The corners of these “blocks” are not sharp but they’re perfectly rounded and no one can explain how this could have been achieved in that particular time in human history, without any written evidence of some kind of technology that could have helped achieve these wonders. The ability to fit perfectly fitting stones of several tons in weight together so that a single human hair can’t fit in between them is not a question of sweat or man hours but is definitely a question of technology. Is it possible that the ancient civilizations around the world have had help from beings not from this world? If not, then how could you explain these constructions, monuments and, holy places, that defy our very own technology? Could it be possible that electricity and elements such as fire have been discovered before than written history states?


In 1938, at the National Museum of Iraq, the museum director finds terra-cotta pots and copper cylinders in the archives that may have been used as galvanic cells. The nearly 2,000-year-old devices called “Baghdad Batteries” are believed to predate the invention of the cell battery by more than 1,000 years.  Archaeologists speculate they may have been used to electroplate gold onto silver for decorative jewelry. “The Baghdad Battery that we’ve currently found in Iraq can generate around four volts. A current modern-day flashlight could be run by a nine-volt battery. if we think of a Baghdad Battery around this size producing four volts, what if we increased the size to around six feet? That might generate 20, 30, 50 volts and have the sufficient power to actually utilize energy in a way that we do today”. – Jason Martell.

370 miles south of the Giza Plateau stands the Hathor Temple Approximately 4,000 years old, the halls of this monument are lined with curious images. researchers call it “The Dendera Bulb.

“What’s interesting about this bulb is the fact that on the wall relief, we see the bulb is plugged into what appears to be a power source.”- Jason Martell.

So when we look at images like the ones found in Egypt, we study the “Baghdad Batteries,” we start to ask ourselves is it possible that Ancient civilizations in Egypt, South, and Central America had the ability to obtain electricity somehow, and if they did, from where did they acquire this knowledge? With so many questions still in the air, the only thing left to do is to study and gather further evidence of these examples of ancient technology and try to understand where did our ancestor obtain it from.
