Machine-made 3-Dimensional maps
Scientists of Bashkir State University have
been examining a large plate found in 1999, with a civil engineering works map
of South Ural.
The map contains civil engineering works: a system of canals with
a length of about 12,000 kilometres, weirs, and gigantic dams.
This is not a simple map, but a three-dimensional. Scientists have
stated that this could be worked out only by means of an aerial survey.
It is obvious that the stone was MACHINED.
Currently, in the United States, work is being carried out on creating
a global three-dimensional map like that. However, the work is not expected to
be completed before 2010.
of the scientists who has conducted examinations on one of the 3-dimensional maps
is Alexander Chuvyrov, the doctor of physical and mathematical science, at Bashkir
State University, Russia.
The question is that in the course of compiling such a three-dimensional
map, it is necessary to work over too many figures. “Try to map even just a mountain!”
exclaims Chuvyrov. “The technology of compiling such maps demands super-power
computers and aerospace survey from the Shuttle.”
(Pravda news release, April 30, 2002)
portions of the map, comprising hundreds of stone slabs are to be found not far
from the Chandar village, Nurimanov Region, in Russia’s Ural Mountain
Australia to Egypt to the Americas, ancient machine-cut lenses and reflectors
of the utmost precision (which are the elements of the astronomical telescope)
have been discovered. And here is where you can find some of them today:
In 1990, whilst searching for exhibits for a Munich museum,
Dr Karl-Heinz Wilms first heard of the "Visby" lens. The lense was named
after the major town in Gotland. Finding a picture of the lens in a book, Dr Wilms
was keen to examine the original.
However, not until 1997 did a team of three scientists go to
Gotland to take a close look at this ancient
lense. To their great joy, there were actually 10 lenses - all locked away in
the storeroom of a local museum.
crystals proved that sophisticated lens-making techniques were being used by craftsmen
over a 1,000 years ago. There were hints that these lenses may have been manufactured
in the ancient empire of Byzantium or somewhere in eastern Europe.
Some of these lenses
can be seen at Gotland's Fornsal, Visby, Sweden (this
is the historical museum in that town). Some others reside in the Swedish
National Museum in Stockholm. And some others have been lost.
What is known as the Nimrud lens was found in 1850 by the British archaeologist
Sir John Layard, during his excavation of the palace of Nimrud, an ancient Assyrian
city in what is now Iraq.
This rock crystal lens is currently on show in the British museum.
crystal lenses, which date from the 4th Dynasty of Old Kingdom Egypt, c.2200 BC.
can be found in the Cairo
are also two others in the Louvre in Paris.
I see it, the evidence for an advanced knowledge of metallurgy in the remote past
is irrefutable. Here are just a couple of examples and where they are to be found:
Iron that does not rust
Ashoka Pillar is a non-rusting iron pillar to be found in India. This is a column
of cast iron which weighs about six tons and stands 23 feet eight inches high.
Its diameter is 16 inches.
iron pillar should have rusted away by now, but there is hardly a trace of rust.
This is pure iron, which can be produced today only in tiny quantities and by
column originally stood in the Temple of Muttra, capped with a Garuda - an image
of the bird incarnation of the god Vishnu. In the 11th century, when
Muslim invaders destroyed the Garuda, they ripped the column from its original
setting and re-erected it in Delhi. Although the exact age of the column is not
known however it does bear the inscription of an epitaph to King Chandra Gupta
II who died in 413AD. This virtually non-rusting pillar can be seen in the courtyard of Kurb Minar in Delhi India
On December 1, 1993, a workman's
spade broke through the roof of a long buried and forgotten tomb. At the time,
a project was under way to build a sports field for the Jingyi Middle school of
Yix-ing City in the Jiang-su Province of China.
police who were called in recognised the find as a tomb, they in turn called for
the Huadong Historical Relics Working Team. They eventually identified the tomb
as the burial site of Chou Chou, a famous general of the Chin dynasty, who lived
from 265-316 AD.
items found in the tomb were pieces of pottery pieces, porcelain, scraps of gold
and a metal belt fastener. The fastener, which was found to be of aluminium, was
thoroughly examined by the Dunbai
Polytechnic, as well as
by the Institute of Applied
Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
was supposedly not discovered until 1803 and not obtained successfully in pure
form until 1854. It is very difficult to isolate, from bauxite, as a pure metal,
without using a lot of electric power.
This 2,000 year old complex computer reveals first-class precision mechanics, as accurate
as any that can be made today. It was used for navigation.

Each is carved from a solid block of crystal. They
possess eye sockets with ground lenses. Light is engeniously channelled from the
base of the skull by means of “light pipes”, then concentrated through a set of
concave and convex lenses, which focus the light rays directly into the excavated
eye sockets – evidence of an advanced understanding of the use of light.
large number of genuine, high quality ancient crystal skulls have been found.
of these crystal skulls have been unearthed in Chinese tombs from
a period in which stone pyramids were being constructed. And 23 more
ancient crystal skulls were discovered of recent times in the Himalayas.

What is known as the Baghdad Battery was found in the ruins of a Parthian village believed
to date back to between 248 B.C. and 226 A.D. Inside a 5-1/2-inch high clay vessel
was a copper cylinder fixed in place by asphalt. And inside the cylinder was an
oxidized iron rod. According to experts, the device needed only to be filled with
an acid or alkaline liquid to produce an electric charge. this ancient battery
may have been used for electroplating objects with gold.
At least one of of these batteries was in the State Museum in Baghdad, Iraq, until the museum was plundered by local
Iraqis during the 2003 war in Iraq.

Known as the Agasta Samhita”, this ancient document is preserved in the Princes’ Library in Ujjain, India.
Micro technology (“nano coils”)
Microscopically tiny spiral-shaped artefacts made from copper,
tungsten and molybdenum, have been unearthed in Russia’s eastern Ural Mountains
and studied by four scientific institutions – the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow, Syktyvkar, and St. Petersburg, as well as the Helsinki Institute in Finland. They bear remarkable resemblances to control elements used
in our latest technology “nano-machines”. The
investigative report, from the Central Scientific Research Department of Geology and Exploitation
of Precious Metals (in Moscow), dated
November 11, 1996, was written and signed by Dr E.W. Matvejeva, have been dated
at thousands of years of age, and declared to be of ‘technological origin”..

Electrically-charged grooved discs
in caves, 716 stone discs each had a hole in the center like a gramophone record,
from which a double groove traced out a spiral to the circumference. (These were
not sound tracks but a kind of writing.) The discs contained large amounts of
cobalt and were rhythmically pulsating as though they had electric charges in
them, or were part of an electric circuit
of them were given by the discoverer, Chi Pu Tei, a professor of archaeology at
Beijing University, to the University and
kept there for 20 years, from 1942 to 1962. Present whereabouts: uncertain (may
still be at Beijing University).
Austrian engineer, Mr. Wegerer, had the opportunity to make these photographs in 1974, when he was on a guided China tour. In Banpo-Museaum in
Xian, the capital of the Province of Shensi, China, he came across
two discs which exactly met the descriptions we know from the Bayan-Kara-Ula report
from 1962. And he could even recognize
hieroglyphs in spiral-like grooves, although they were partly crumbled way.
author Hartwig Hausdorf, gave this first hand report of his visit to the museum:
March, 1994, Professor Wang Zhijun, Director of the Banpo-Museum, welcomed us
for a discussion on the stone disc. At first, he wasn't willing to give us further
details, but after a while he revealed shocking information.
the above-mentioned manager, was called away from her job just a few days after
Mr Wegerer had visited the museum, without giving her any reason. She’s vanished
since that, and both from her and the two stone disks, any trace is missing!
”What happened to the woman? I don't know. But I had feeling that Professor
Wang Zhijun didn't feel well during our inquiry. When we asked for the artifacts’
present place, he told us the following (I quote): ‘The stone discs you've mentioned
do not exist, but being extraneous elements in this pottery museum, they were
documents concerning aircraft
