- The Facts:l Castillo, aka the Temple of Kukulkan, is a Mesoamerican in Mexico. If you stand directly in line with the steps and clap, you can hear the sound of the quetzal bird, a sacred animal to the Mayans.
- Reflect On:What do these strange findings reveal about human history? What do they say about Earth’s past? What do they reveal to us about the nature of reality? Why is so much information buried under the rug and never addressed?
What’s written in our history books about the Pyramids is best taken with a grain of salt. When you do your own research and look at the work of many scholars who are vested in this subject, one thing becomes abundantly clear: We practically know nothing about the Pyramids, including why they are here and who built them.
It’s fascinating that these structures were built by multiple societies, all over the world, across different time periods, and they had absolutely no contact with each other whatsoever. That alone should raise an eyebrow. Why did they all build pyramids? What were their purpose? We simply don’t know, and we only have bits and pieces of this mystery solved.
Anybody that tells you that they know how the pyramids were built is not telling the truth, because we don’t know. The great pyramid contains a number of mysteries. It weighs 6 million tonnes, it’s footprint is 13 acres, it spans more than 750 feet along each side, it’s 481 feet tall, and it took more than 2 and a half million individual blocks of stone to construct. And it’s not just large in size, it’s really really precise. The great pyramid is locked into the cardinal directions of our planet, and is targeted within three sixtieth of a single degree. No modern builder would create a large building and align it to true north within a fraction of a single degree … yet these ancient civilizations did. – Graham Hancock
There are uncountable strange mathematical anomalies when it comes to the great pyramid in Egypt. There are too many to name here, but if you’re interested in that, I suggest you check out the work of Graham Hancock. I’ve also included some information and a few links to articles that go deeper into this subject toward the end of this article. But for now, I want to focus on the Castillo pyramid at Chichen Itza (Mayan ruin).
Scientists have shown how sound waves ricochetting around the tired steps of the El Castillo pyramid create sounds that mimic the sound of the Mexican quetzal bird, a sacred animal in Mayan culture. This was actually first recognized by California-based acoustic engineer David Lubman in 1998. The ‘chirp’ can be triggered by clapping your hands at the base of the staircase, and only at the base of the staircase. (source)
Below is a video demonstration of this on youtube.
How remarkable is that: The ancients could build this pyramid to make the exact sound of the sacred animal they worshipped. It’s mind-altering to think about. It’s a temple dedicated to Kukulkan, also known as the “feathered serpent.” Quetzalcoatl was also a “feathered serpent” and many scholars believe that Kukulkan and Quetzalcoatl were one in the same person.
Considered to be a mythical tale, Spanish chronicler Juan de Torquemada states that Quetzalcoatl was ‘a fair and ruddy complexioned man with a long beard.’ Another describes him as follows:
“A mysterious person… a white man with strong formation of body, broad forehead, large eyes, and a flowing beard. He was dressed in a long, white robe reaching to his feet. He condemned sacrifices, except of fruits and flowers, and was known as the god of peace…When addressed on the subject of war he is reported to have stopped up his ears with his fingers.” (source)
Graham Hancock, one of the world’s foremost researchers into such things, gives another description from Central American Mayan tradition in his book, Fingerprints of the Gods:
“He came from across the sea in a boat that moved by itself without paddles. He was a tall, bearded white man who taught people to use fire for cooking. He also built houses and showed couples that they could live together as husband and wife; and since people often quarrelled in those days, he taught them to live in peace.”
This figure is spoken of the Mesoamerican culture.
Strange Pyramid Findings
If you take the height of the great pyramid and multiply it by 43,200, you get the polar radius of the Earth. If you measure the base perimeter of it, and multiply it by the same number, you get the equatorial circumference of the Earth.
The number 43,200 is derived from a key motion of the Earth, which is called the precession of the Earth’s axis. (Graham Hancock)
The 43,200 number represents the number of days in 20 epochs of precession.
“In other words, during all the centuries of darkness experienced by Western civilization when knowledge of our planet’s dimensions was lost to us, all we ever really needed to rediscover that knowledge was to measure the height and base perimeter of the Great Pyramid and multiply by 43,200. How likely is this to be an accident?” – Graham Hancock (Fingerprints of the Gods)
How on Earth did they do this? Where did this knowledge come from? There is also a lot of evidence suggesting that all of the pyramids on our planet are much older than we think.
And then we have other strange findings, like when Archaeologist Sergio Gomez discovered “large quantities” of liquid mercury in a chamber underneath the third largest pyramid of Teotihuacan (feathered servant), an ancient city located in Mexico. Rosemary Joyce, a professor of anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, said that archaeologists have found mercury at three other sites around Central America. So this isn’t something new, but why? (source)
One explanation, outlined in research published in Science in 1975 by archaeo-astronomer John Carlson, demonstrated that a hematite object excavated at the Olmec site of San Lorenzo in the Gulf Coast of Mexico could act as a compass oriented to magnetic north if it was floated on liquid mercury. Carlson suggested that the Olmec might have used liquid mercury for this purpose. Other scholars have stated with absolute certainty that liquid mercury was used as early as 1000 BC.
In 2005, a giant pyramid complex consisting of 11 structures was discovered in Bosnia. One of the structures is larger than the great pyramid. The majority of scholars brought in to study it have little to no doubt that these are real. This complex is also associated with strange electromagnetic phenomenon, suggesting that they could have been some type of perpetual motion or energy machines. To learn more, you can check out an article I published in September of 2018.
I also wrote an article recently on a study that found that the Great Pyramid in Egypt can store electromagnetic energy. You can read more about that here.
The truth is, as Graham Hancock once said, we are like a species with amnesia. We have bits and pieces of a humungous puzzle that we are only beginning to understand now. Human history and evolution are in large part unknown, and there are so many things that challenge our current theories. From extraterrestrials to the pyramids to stories about civilizations like Atlantis, there is still so much to uncover. It’s quite clear that we have to unlearn what we’ve been taught and re-gain our thirst for knowledge to uncover any sort of truth on this matter. You will never see things like this within the mainstream, despite the fact that many prominent academic leaders are heavily vested in these subjects.
