After the Storm: Hurricane Ophelia Reveals Ancient Mystery Skeleton in Ireland

Ancient Origin Hurricane Ophelia sent strong waves beating against a coastal walkway in Ireland. This sped up erosion and revealed an unexpected discovery to people walking in the area the next day – human remains. Preliminary analysis suggests that the body may have been buried in the Iron Age, but this is only the second time researchers have heard of any ancient burials in the area. The Irish Daily Mirror reports the human remains were unearthed at Forlorn Point, Kilmore Quay, Co Wexford, Ireland. The skeleton’s discoverers alerted authorities and the State Pathologists Office and a Forensic anthropologist were soon...

Spiritual Alchemy – Casting Light on a Secret Science

Ancient Origins Spiritual alchemy is closely linked to secret knowledge and many who have attained this level of wisdom later decided to withdraw from it as they found they were not ready to receive it. The purpose of spiritual alchemy is attaining an ancient state which allows access to answers to the following questions: “Who are we?” “Where do we come from?” and “Where are we heading?” Many say the Kabala describes the road and the destination, but alchemy describes the process and the transformations needed to find the required answers. Physical to Spiritual Alchemy Medieval alchemy has its...

Stone spheres of Costa Rica

The Free Dictionary The stone spheres (or stone balls) of Costa Rica are an assortment ofover three hundred petrospheres in Costa Rica, located on the DiquísDelta and on Isla del Caño. Locally, they are known as Las Bolas(literally The Balls). The spheres are commonly attributed to the extinctDiquís culture and are sometimes referred to as the Diquís Spheres.They are the best-known stone sculptures of the Isthmo-Colombianarea. They are thought to have been placed in lines along the approachto the houses of chiefs, but their exact significance remains uncertain. The Palmar Sur Archeological Excavations are a series ofexcavations of a site located in the southern portion of Costa Rica,known as the Diquís Delta. The excavations have centered on a siteknown as “Farm 6″, dating back to the Aguas Buenas Period (300–800CE) and Chiriquí Period (800–1550 CE). In June 2014, the Precolumbian Chiefdom Settlements with StoneSpheres of the Diquis was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.[1] Description The spheres range in size from a few centimetres to over 2 metres(6.6 ft) in diameter, and weigh up to 15 tons.[2] Most are sculpted fromgabbro,[2] the coarse-grained equivalent of basalt. There are a dozen orso made from shell-rich limestone, and another dozen made from asandstone. They appear to have been made by hammering naturalboulders with other rocks, then polishing with sand. The degree offinishing and precision of working varies considerably. The gabbro camefrom sites in the hills, several kilometres away from where the finishedspheres are found, though some unfinished spheres remain in the hills. Geographic setting and location The archaeological site of Palmar Sur is located in the southern portionof Costa Rica, known as the Diquís Delta, and in the southernmost partof the Puntarenas Province. The Diquís Delta is defined as the alluvialplain with the geographical boundaries of the Fila Grisera to the northand east, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Osa Mountainscomprising the southern boundary. This area is defined by two seasons:wet and dry. The dry season runs from December through March withthe wet season comprising the remaining months. The Site is located in Palmar Sur, southern Costa Rica. The site is locatedon approximately 10 hectares of property that was previously owned by theUnited Fruit Company in the alluvial plain of the Térraba River. Site description View of the Farm 6 Archaeological site The archaeological site of Farm 6 has been dated to the Aguas Buenas Period(300–800 CE) and Chiriquí Period (800–1550 CE). It was a multifunctional siteaccommodating a settlement and a cemetery, and remains of monumentalarchitecture and sculpture are also present on the site. The monumentalarchitecture consists of two mounds which were constructed with retainingwalls made of rounded river cobbles and filled with earth. The site containsmultiple locations where large stone spheres are found in situ. Additionally,since many of the stone spheres in the region were removed from their originallocations and serve as landscape decoration, the site has become a storagelocation for spheres that have been returned to the National Museum. Pre-Columbian history Palmar Sur airport park The stones are believed to have been first created around the year 600, withmost dating to after 1000 but before the Spanish conquest. The only methodavailable for dating the carved stones is stratigraphy, but most stones are nolonger in their original locations. The culture of the people who made themdisappeared after the Spanish conquest.[3] Post-contact history The spheres were discovered in the 1930s as the United Fruit Company wasclearing the jungle for banana plantations.[3] Workmen pushed them aside withbulldozers and heavy equipment, damaging some spheres. Additionally,inspired by stories of hidden gold workmen began to drill holes into thespheres and blow them open with sticks of dynamite. Several of the sphereswere destroyed before authorities intervened. Some of the dynamited sphereshave been reassembled and are currently on display at the National Museumof Costa Rica in San José. The first scientific investigation of the spheres was undertaken shortlyafter their discovery by Doris Stone, a daughter of a United Fruitexecutive. These were published in 1943 in American Antiquity,attracting the attention of Samuel Kirkland Lothrop[4] of the Peabody Museum at Harvard University.[5] In 1948, he and his wife attempted toexcavate an unrelated archaeological site in the northern region of CostaRica.[6] The government had just disbanded its professional army, andthe resulting civil unrest threatened the security of Lothrop’s team. In SanJosé he met Doris Stone, who directed the group toward the Diquís Deltaregion in the southwest (“Valle de Diquís” refers to the valley of the lowerRío Grande de Térraba, including the Osa Canton towns of PuertoCortés, Palmar Norte, and Sierpe[7]) and provided them with valuable digsites and personal contacts. Lothrop’s findings were published inArchaeology of the Diquís Delta, Costa Rica 1963. In 2010, University of Kansas researcher John Hoopes visited the site ofthe Stone Spheres to evaluate their eligibility for protection as a UnescoWorld Heritage Site.[8] Historical background Remnants of UFCO occupation in Palmar Sur Before the arrival of the Companía Bananera de Costa Rica, a branch ofthe United Fruit Company, and banana plantations in the 1930s,vegetation in this area offered a great deal of biodiversity in both plantand animal resources. Resources available to Precolumbian inhabitantsin this alluvial plain consisted of riverine and ocean resources, includingmangrove forests located in the Terraba and Sierpe Rivers. Modern Landscape of Palmar Sur, Costa Rica The rich alluvial soils of this region facilitated historical agriculture since the 1930s. The United Fruit Company dominated thissouthern region with banana plantations as early as the 1920s in Parrita and Quepos. The UFCO entered Palmar Sur in the1930s under the name of Companía Bananera de Costa Rica in an effort to avoid antimonopoly legislature.[9] Today thelandscape is still carved into agricultural fields which are owned by co-ops and consist of plantain, banana, and palmplantations. Early researchers in the region Scientific research in the alluvial plain, particularly on United Fruit Company properties, began in the 1940s with the work ofDoris Zemurray Stone and Samuel Lothrop. Lothrop’s work focused on excavation at a handful of sites, one being Farm 4.His work aimed to document all archaeological sites containing “in situ” stone spheres, to record the number of spheres andtheir dimensions, and to make detailed maps illustrating both their arrangement and alignments. After the work of Lothrop and Stone, research in the area took a hiatus for nearly fifty years. In the 1990s, Claude Baudezand a team of researchers set out to establish a ceramic chronology of the region by observing the change in ceramic stylesover time.[10] This was accomplished by examining the drainage ditches that were cut into the landscape by the UFCO.Research carried out by Ifigenia Quintanilla, under the direction of the MNCR from 1991-1996 was performed in the regionunder the project titled “Man and Environment in Sierpe-Terraba” focusing on settlement patterns, occupational sequences,and resources utilized in the region.[11] Francisco Corrales and Adrian Badilla, archaeologists with the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica, have performed continuousresearch in the region since 2002. Their research began in 2002 and focused on four archaeological sites in the regioncontaining stone spheres and of which comprise a “circuit”. These sites include Grijalba, Batambal, El Silencio, and “Farm6″. The purpose of the project was to assess the cultural significance of the sites, to protect the cultural heritage, in additionto beginning research and studies at the sites.[12] Corrales and Badilla produced a booklet entitled El Paisaje Cultural delDelta del Diquís which provides a quick overview on the history of the Diquís Delta, the history of banana plantations and theUFCO, the natural environment, archaeological sites in the region, and the importance of the Diquís region as an UNESCOWorld Heritage Site.[13] Research has continued in the region by Corrales and Badilla focusing on the archaeology and thePrecolumbian political structure in the Diquís Delta. Research emphasis was on chiefdoms and their associatedarchaeological indicators. Their objectives were to study the archaeological sites containing stone spheres in the DiquísSubregion to gain an understanding of community configuration, activity areas, sequences of occupation, and the recording ofmonumental architecture.[14] Current research Research is currently ongoing at the “Farm 6″ site under the direction of archaeologists at the Museo Nacional de Costa Rica.The first field season in which archaeological excavations were undertaken was in 2005. Objectives during this field seasonincluded defining the area in which two mounds were located, sphere alignments, and various excavations associated withmound 2. In 2007, as second field season was undertaken focusing on archaeological excavations of Mound 1. During thisfield season, a stone sphere was discovered “in situ” in association with the mound. Tourism Archaeo-tourism is a concept that is still relatively new in Costa Rica. To date, the national monument of Guayabo deTurrialba is primarily the only archaeological site open for tourism. Tourism on a smaller scale is occurring at the site of Farm6 but is open to visitors upon paying a nominal fee to tour the museum display and then tour the grounds, viewing some ofthe discovery sites. It is no longer necessary to have an appointment. Future plans of the MNCR are to open the site totourism on a larger scale and to include other sites nearby in the region. Myths Numerous myths surround the stones, such as they came from Atlantis, or that they were made as such by nature. Somelocal legends state that the native inhabitants had access to a potion able to soften the rock. Research led by Joseph Davidovits of the Geopolymer Institute in France has been offered in support of this hypothesis,[15] but it is not supported bygeological or archaeological evidence (it has not been demonstrated that gabbro, the material most of the balls arecomposed of, can be worked in this way.) In the cosmogony of the Bribri, which is shared by the Cabecares and other American ancestral groups, the stone spheresare “Tara’s cannon balls”. Tara or Tlatchque, the god of thunder, used a giant blowpipe to shoot the balls at the Serkes, godsof winds and hurricanes, in order to drive them out of these lands. It has been claimed that the spheres are perfect, or very near perfect in roundness, although some spheres are known to varyover 5 centimetres (2.0 in) in diameter. Also, the stones have been damaged and eroded over the years, and so it isimpossible to know exactly their original shape. A review of the way that the stones were measured by Lothrop reveals thatclaims of precision are due to misinterpretations of the methods used in their measurement. Although Lothrop publishedtables of ball diameters with figures to three decimal places, these figures were actually averages of measurements takenwith tapes that were nowhere near that precise.[16] See also Olmec colossal heads Barrigones of Guatemala Petrosphere Stone ball Kugel ball List of megalithic sites Moeraki...

THE SURPRISING HIDDEN MEANING OF THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT

Collective Evolution George Washington was not only our first president, but also a Master Mason. Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that was forged in the 14th century and has been shrouded in secrecy (and plenty of conspiracy) for much of the time since. While we aren’t going to indulge in the conspiracy aspect at this time (although, if you choose, feel free to by watching the video at the end of the article, “Hidden in Plain Sight”), the rites of Freemasonry, as well as the use of sacred geometry and appreciation of Egyptian deities, are where we can begin to connect some very interesting dots....

Maria Wheatley: Megalithic Power and Serpent Energies [VIDEO]

MegalithomaniaUK Maria Wheatley: Megalithic Power and Serpent Energies FULL LECTURE Oct 6, 2017 See exclusive interview here: http://youtu.be/A760RBTV55Q – The megalithic architectures of stone circles and temple complexes worldwide skilfully incorporated several distinctive types of earth energies into their foundation plans. Imbuing the site with unseen power, our investigations reveal that earth energies and their manifest patterns, dramatically change the ionic ratios in their immediate vicinity, alter background radiation levels and can influence our consciousness. Our research shows that some megalithic structures, especially dolmens, push energy away from the site as if irrigating the land and remarkably standing stones...
