Around the world there are so many mysteries, which still remain unsolved. We can find them anywhere and everywhere. It could be ghosts,
paranormal activities, buildings of old civilizations and many others. We have
no, or only a little, information about how and why can something exist.
People can not sleep because of them and try to understand and explain them. In
little serie we will take a look on some mysteries locked in stones...
One of the most famous mysteries are Nazca
Lines, which represents lines on arid plateau in Peru. On this isolated part of
the world are drawn different creatures like hummingbirds, spermwhale, spider,
monkey and many others. Total there are more than 300 drawnings. These
drawnings are huge and they are visible only from above. Here we can find first
issue. Some people will argue that they are visible only from airplanes, thus
they were connected with aliens and the second view is that these drawnings can
be seen also from nearby mountains.
Yes, you can see drawnings from nearby
mountains but not as good as seen from the above. In fact when you are direct
on plateau you don´t know where you are, thus their discovery came when they
were registered by people from planes.
The very first expedition started Paul Kosok
in 1939, his work follow up Maria Reiche, who discovered many of the
drawnings. Her theory was that drawnings was made because of
astronomy, following astronomical phenomena for the planning of sowing and
reaping. This theory was questioned. In fact there are so many theories why was
made these drawnings and all of them are questionable.
If these drawnings will be irrigation
system or runway for aliens lines don´t need to represents animals and people.
Yes, some of the lines are straight for kilometers but not all of them. Next,
if drawnings should represent astronomical calendar or they had
ritual or religious significance it will surely be in some different form or
somewhere and in size which will be seen from each place, for everyone.
Maybe you get on mind, how drawnings were
made. It is not as complicated as you might think. From pampa was only removed
the top layer of dark clay. According to some tests its easily to make with
sticks and ropes. So the question is not how but why? There are many theories,
but none of them explaining the enourmous animals which were drawn with
accuracy like spider genus Ricinueli which is drawn also with parts which can
be seen only under a microscope. Something so detailed must have deeper
reason. Will be revealed?
We already mentioned
which may exist or not. They appear only to few of us and no one else ever saw them
again. But there are still islands which are real more that enough and there
are mysteries to know. One of them is Bolshoi Zayatsky island, Russia, where are
till nowadays ancient buildings like giant mounds and shrines, but what is most
interesting, are stone labyrinths dated before 3 000 BC. These labyrinths
are intersting because there is still no exact explanation of their existence
and also on this island is highest concentration of labyrinths. Labyrinths can befind
in many cultures around the world. There are many theories why they exist. Some
people think that they are related with spiritual beliefs and also that they represent hard parth of life or path of soul after the death. This
ideas came mainly with Christianity. As stated Enzo Bernardini in The Book of
mysterious places „from the 4th century
AD passed labyrinth into the Christian symbols with meaning of difficult and
agonizing journey, that souls must past, in order to get to God and become saved.“
But, next, Sarah
Bartlett, stated in Guide to the world´s Supernatural places, „in the Middle Ages the clergy used the labyrinth
at the Easter ritual dances. Labyrinths also symbolized the journey of pilgrims
to the cathedral, is final stage. Christian church later ordered to remove labyrints
from European churches because of its pagan origins.“
So, life respectively
after life path is more connected with Christianity, thus this can´t be the main
reason. Also the stones, from which are labyrinths made and now are covered by
withlichen, moss and heather, are max. 40 centimeters high. We can assume that if
the main reason will be so venerable they will be more monumetal.
From other hypothesis
we can mention, that labyrinths could be primitive temples, astral projections,
calendars, traps for bad spirits, or just sign of somebody´s existence.
most interesting theory is that these labyrinths were using as
a fishtraps. Labyrinths are located on the western side of the island on
the ground right by the sea. We can also assume that during their building was sea
level higher than is now and also that tide get also to those labyrinths which
are further from sea. Fish swum to the labyrinth and stay trapped.
