AMAZING ARTICLES #14: THE GREATEST SF STORY EVER - SUMER, EGYPT, MAYA
"complexity is only deceiving simplicity."
[Do you know your body?]
Our science is still learning wonders about our Human Species. By the way; note the following:
1. Anatomy is the science dealing with physical construction of the human body;
Physiology is the science dealing with the functionality of the human body (in particular, the
functionality of our internal organs);
3. Psychology is the science dealing with the functionality of the human mind/brain.
The above clarifications are needed to understand a few exceptional topics developed in our SF books.

Our Sun has phases of intense activity, followed by
the reduced activity
ones. For example, during the last years the Sun is increasing its activity constantly, therefore our
getting warmer and warmer. That process is translated into an increased meteorological activity;
consequently, we are going to see many more
powerful storms, incredible rains, floods, quakes, tsunami waves, and . .
Why more? Mr. Nostradamus
told us that we
are going to experience even more dangerous "things"; for example,
a terrible meteorite strike, and even
a shift in the pole axis!
Oh, well; let's return to our historical topics. The last
Glacial Age was ended sometimes around
17000 BC [Before Christ]; thence, people started feeling somewhat better (warmer). They are
still in the
Neolithic period, and they are far
from being a civilized society. Anyway, we suspect in that period they started using the land for agricultural
purposes, and that activity is very important: by staying for a longer period in one place, people began
The oldest Civilization of our ancient history is the one described in the Indian
Veda poems. "Veda" means
KNOWLEDGE, and that is a perplexing name for those ancient, religious poems.
Now, if you manage to strip the biased
religious content of those poems, the resulting picture is UN-BE-LIE-VA-BLE! Many historians consider the Veda
poems are the oldest documents discovered, since they cover a period of time suspected to be anywhere between
15000 BC and 4000 BC.
Other extremely important poems, Mahabharata and
Ramayana, describe the same period of time,
and their scientific revelations are beyond belief!
No modern Science Fiction writer has ever come close to the technological
and scientific wonders described in those old
poems, and this is despite their wild, pseudo-scientific imagination. The
technological level we have today is just "Paleolithic" compared to that of the "Sons of God" described in Ramayana. Please, make no mistake:
we refer here to science only, not to any religious miracles. Fact is, in all our books, and in these articles, we refer
strictly to science and technology, and not to miracles, fantastic, illogic, or to fictional absurdities.
Just to present you a glimpse of the scientific level described in the Veda poems, the "Sons of God" were
traveling between stars faster than the speed of light using the "currents of
space"--this is an
incredible concept, isn't it? The Big Bang theory was presented there as
being a cyclic evolution of the Universe, only
that was, of course, just a theory 10 000 BC years old--or possibly 100 000 years old,
and not ours . . .
Anyway, the mysteries of the Universe will remain mysteries to us even after one million years of continuous,
ascending, development. Now, in the beginning of the 20th century, some people have managed, somehow, to
"discover" the Big-Bang theory and most scientists today agree with it, although the
theory--as we know
it--has "no head and no tail". Well! We shall have to return to this foggy Big-Bang/Little Pop theory one
We want to point out again that the Veda Poems have been translated into English according to our power of understanding
reality--which is mechanical. This is our actual level of scientific development:
mechanical. Everything we know has
to be explained mechanically, otherwise we cannot understand it--it doesn't make sense!
Anyway, close related to those old, incredibly advanced civilizations described in the Veda poems is the
Sumerian Civilization. That was the
first, the greatest, and THE most intriguing Civilization of our ancient history. It appeared from nowhere--many consider
they came from India--and their level of civilization was unbelievable for those early days. We do have many
data about the Sumerian Civilization, because they used to keep records on burned clay tablets. Their writing
unique, and nobody used it before or after they disappeared: it has been named "cuneiform". They were so
advanced, 5000 years BC, that they afforded even the luxury of writing literature/poems, although in those early days
living was far from being easy. As for their perplexing knowledge in Mathematics, for example, that is
Let's make a detour here. Allow us to mention that, about 8000 years ago, the beautiful
Black Sea came to enrich the geography of our planet. Following a catastrophic quake, the Bosporus Strait has cut
the majestic Alpine-Carpathian-Himalayan chain of mountains, thus forming the Black Sea in place of another interior
sea similar, probably, to the Caspian one.
We are certain you are very happy to know that the Black Sea is the youngest sea connected to the planetary ocean:
it is only 8000 year old! Besides, the places surrounding that little geographical jewel are really nice. We are
going to hear many interesting things about this Black Sea in the near future, because there are lots of mysteries
waiting to be discovered there.
The Sumerians settled their city-state Sumer close to the Baghdad city of our days. There they built their
temples named "ziggurats" and, frankly, we find their architecture
particularly stylish even for
our modern days! At one moment in history, around 3000 BC, the Sumerian
Civilization disappears, and many consider they
have migrated into Europe. We doubt that very much because, even if they were forced into Europe, they went there not
as a Civilization anymore: they never built their ziggurat temples again, and they didn't leave any more written
records. If you have the opportunity, study this Sumerian Civilization,
won't regret it.
The next important historical step/period is the Egyptian Civilization--also one of the most mysterious ones. They came into our
history around 3100 BC, and they lasted until 332 BC. The Egyptian Civilization continued centuries later under a
Greek origin Dynasty, but that was just agony. Again, the Egyptians had a unique style of writing, this time
pictographic one named "hieroglyphs", and they had advanced knowledge
Mathematics, Astronomy, and
Architecture. There are still many things unclear about the old Egyptians, and we are certain
that many more will be revealed in
the future. Please investigate their use of electricity, and their knowledge about the Sirius binary
System--this is just a random highlight; there are, again, thousands of intriguing
The most important creation of the Egyptian
Civilization is the Alexandria Pharos.
In fact, it is improper to name
it "creation of the Egyptian Civilization" because it was built by the Ptolemy Dynasty in 307 BC, which
was of Greek origin. Anyway, Pharos was one of the "Seven Wonders" of the Ancient World, and we consider
it to be THE Greatest Wonder ever! We went over the Internet to find some data for our article about this Great
Wonder, and we discovered hundreds of articles dealing with the construction of the Pharos, but nothing about the
Yes, Pharos was an impressive building, especially for those
early times, but its true value
was THE LIBRARY. The Alexandria Pharos was the first UNIVERSITY
in our History, and it contained hundreds of
thousands of very, very old manuscripts--some say there must have been there
over one million manuscripts!
All great philosophers and scientists of the ancient world had spent some
time at the Alexandria Pharos University to complete
their training by studying some of those exceptional manuscripts. The
Alexandria Pharos Library was the greatest treasure our
Civilization ever had: it contained secrets which we cannot even
imagine today. The Alexandria Pharos has been treasured and considered a
sanctuary of intelligence for centuries, by everybody, excepting . . .
According to the latest theories, the Alexandria Pharos was burned down by the Christian priests
during the crusade wars. However, the priests later blamed the Muslims for that unbelievably criminal act,
since they were
well aware about the enormous gravity of their crime.
Unfortunately, the Christian Church just developed the taste for destroying the
History of our Civilization, as they continued doing that again and again. Anyway, it is possible it wasn't the Christians who
burned down the Pharos Library: it could have been just an unfortunate accident.
Most likely, we will never discover the truth, therefore we can only speculate.
In China, separated by deserts, mountains and great distances, the Xia Dynasty marks the beginning of the unique
and intriguing Chinese culture in 2100 BC. On the American continents, other
civilizations were developing
cultures similar in mystery to the Egyptian ones: Olmec,
Toltec, and later
Maya. All three of them are worth a
profound study, because they were incredibly advanced [better said, way too advanced] for their time.
In fact, Maya Civilization was so advanced that Diego de Landa,
the Christian Bishop of Yucatan, had made it his "sacred duty" to burn
down all writings about the Mayan culture, and he worked diligently, for
thirty years or something, on his task. Later, history tells us that he
regretted his insane behavior; consequently, he wrote three books
about the Maya Civilization.
Of course, his books describe ONLY the "normal" aspects of the Maya
Civilization, not the facts that were unbelievably extraordinary. That was the second criminal act of
loss committed by the Christian Church against
the History of our Civilization and against Humanity but, unfortunately, again not the last one.
intolerance, regardless of where it comes from, must be condemned and presented as a despicable example, in order to
the educate people to never repeat the crimes of the past. The GREAT
CREATOR is only ONE; everything in the Universe is HIS
CREATION, and ALL INTELLIGENT beings are HIS beloved children. We suggest
that you read
our SF books in order to understand the
psychological drive behind destruction.
Yeah, it may be you are wondering about what are we doing here, in these
history articles, because we do not
present much historical data. What happens is, we need a time-frame for our future articles; therefore, we will
have to come back
later to certain moments in time, and to certain Civilizations. Overall, we suggest here interesting topics
to study: they
are general-culture information, therefore everybody should know these facts.
