The How TO of Pyramids

Written by Robert Bruce Baird


I just watched a show dealing withrepparttar Incan Andean cosmology that said they believed in 'As Above, So Below'. This is one ofrepparttar 150078 three laws ofrepparttar 150079 Magi andrepparttar 150080 Dictum of Hermes that our secret agent of British Intelligence has onrepparttar 150081 back cover of his book Secret Societies.

Dr. Davidovits isrepparttar 150082 modern patent holder of many geopolymeric rock-making or concrete processes and I talked at length with his co-author Marjorie Morris in 1993-4 about a variety of things related to their book 'The Pyramids: An Enigma Solved'. Inrepparttar 150083 interest of brevity I'll leave out how they were back-stabbed in a media hatchet-job by WGBH Boston who produced whatrepparttar 150084 BBC takes to schools all aroundrepparttar 150085 world. It is a video called 'This Old Pyramid' and it was shown on U.S. National TV as well as 'The Nature of Things' with David Suzuki. I saw his letter saying he didn't know they had used fork-lift trucks and modern tools to build this small pyramid that shifted inrepparttar 150086 sand after a few weeks and didn't haverepparttar 150087 'fit' anyway.

The recent April issue of Scientific American deals with this in a somewhat tangential manner as it mentionsrepparttar 150088 Miller-Urey Chicago creation of life experiment that was taught as creation of animate from inanimate for many years although it actually isn't creation, of much more than a few basic proteins. However, that start which became a dead end in some people's minds has continued to produce valuable insights. This particular article helps one see howrepparttar 150089 attunement may have been initiated byrepparttar 150090 collective consciousnesses within inanimate matter or mountains thatrepparttar 150091 natives ofrepparttar 150092 world revere. It may be a bit of a stretch butrepparttar 150093 nanotube article and other science from solid state chemistry as well asrepparttar 150094 work of Drs. Robins and Tiller would support it as well.

"Carbon-based molecules needed protection and assistance to enact this drama {The beginning of life, which NASA now knows is everywhere.}. It turns out that minerals could have served at least five significant functions, from passive props to active players, in life-inducing chemical reactions. Tiny compartments {What Robins calls 'energy wells'.} in mineral structures can shelter simple molecules, while mineral surfaces can providerepparttar 150095 scaffolding on which those molecules assemble and grow. Beyond these sheltering and supportive functions, crystal faces of certain minerals can actually select particular molecules resembling those that were destined to become biologically important. The metallic ions in other minerals can jump-start meaningful reactions like those that must have converted simple molecules into self-replicating entities. Most surprisingly, perhaps, arerepparttar 150096 recent indications that elements of dissolved minerals can be incorporated into biological molecules. In other words, minerals may not have merely helped biological molecules come together, they might have become part of life itself!" (11)

Geopolymers are revolutionary forrepparttar 150097 concrete industry {He is a member ofrepparttar 150098 Board of Portland Cement and a Director of a French concrete development consortium or research entity. His Doctorate in chemistry began his journey.}. Any type of rock aggregate can be used, and concrete made withrepparttar 150099 geopolymeric binder is practically indistinguishable from natural stone. Geologists unfamiliar withrepparttar 150100 technical possibilities afforded by geopolymerization have scrutinized geopolymeric concrete and have mistaken it for natural stone. This is unprecedented technology; no tremendous heat or pressure is required... sets rapidly at room temperatures to form synthetic stone...

To develop a new branch of chemistry is one thing, but to apply that chemistry to ancient history is quite another. How did I learn thatrepparttar 150101 pyramid stone is also geopolymeric? Any theory must be feasible; then, there must be evidence; and ultimately, hard scientific proof is required. All mysteries associated with pyramid construction must be resolved. {The pyramid rock weighs 20-25% less than quarried stone andrepparttar 150102 same as geopolymeric rock. This does not mean that Christopher Dunn's finishing engineering doesn't apply and that molds were used when obelisks or special rocks were required either. He doesn't deal withrepparttar 150103 healing or other energy in some of these surrounding structures either.} A description is found inrepparttar 150104 ancient science encyclopedia written by Plinyrepparttar 150105 Elder (A.D. 23-79),repparttar 150106 Roman naturalist. Pliny's account is not legendary or written esoterically; it clearly describesrepparttar 150107 salient features ofrepparttar 150108 technology. But Pliny's description has not been understood by modern science, because to recognize what is written, one must haverepparttar 150109 appropriate knowledge… {Or at least enough to actually hear what is being said.}

To date,repparttar 150110 passages related to alchemical stonemaking confuse scholars, resulting in gross errors of translation on Pliny's work. Worse,repparttar 150111 salient principles and characteristics ofrepparttar 150112 ancient science being unknown,repparttar 150113 translators dismissed Pliny's account as erroneous. De Roziere commented onrepparttar 150114 problems of translation:

'M. Grosse, author of a German translation of Pliny, highly esteemed by learned people, points out that inrepparttar 150115 whole of this descriptionrepparttar 150116 Roman naturalist seems to have done his best to make himself obscure. 'Despite my familiarity,' he said, 'both with Pliny's style andrepparttar 150117 meaning he gives to terms, it has been difficult, sometimes even impossible, to translaterepparttar 150118 passages clearly and exactly.' The reason was certainly that he was unfamiliar withrepparttar 150119 substance that Pliny was describing...

A passage from Book 31 of Pliny's encyclopedia made no sense torepparttar 150120 French scholars. Butrepparttar 150121 passage is compelling in its support ofrepparttar 150122 existence of alchemical stonemaking. The passage appears in Latin as follows:

Nitrariae Aegypti circa Naucratim et Memphim tantum solebant esse, circa Memphim deteriores. Nam et lapidescit ibi in ascervis: multique sunt cumuli ea de causa saxei. Faciunt ex his vasa

Translated into English this passage reads:

In previous times, Egypt had no outcrops of natron except for those near Naucratus {Whererepparttar 150123 Milesian consortium set up their trading city aroundrepparttar 150124 6th century BCE.} and Memphis,repparttar 150125 products of Memphis being reputedly inferior. It is a fact that in accumulation of materials it (natron) petrifies (minerals). In this way occurs a multitude of heaps (of minerals) which became transformed into real rocks. The Egyptians made rocks of it.

This particular passage is simple and straitforward, so there is no error of translation." (12)

The next quote from him should be read in light ofrepparttar 150126 recent archaeological finds that show agriculture and an alphabet (Flinders Petrie knew of a much more ancient alphabet of a non-hieroglyphic nature in Egypt inrepparttar 150127 early 20th century as did MacDari. Grant notes a pre-existing Canaanite alphabet. Gimbutas has shown a lot that relates to this as well as torepparttar 150128 Tartessus written history Strabo said recorded 7,000 years before Christ, etc. etc.) from a thousand years beforerepparttar 150129 Nile had these things. There is evidence of an advanced agriculture inrepparttar 150130 Nile that existed whilerepparttar 150131 Sphinx was built and then leftrepparttar 150132 area duringrepparttar 150133 wet phases ofrepparttar 150134 last Ice Age around 7,000 BC as well.

Hobbits and Lice

Written by Robert Bruce Baird


In late 2004repparttar media was all agog withrepparttar 148329 small hominids found on Flores Island where I had written about artifacts showing sea travel technology must have existed. I had argued with many people aboutrepparttar 148330 issue and their argument had some merit in that we had no proof of a connection to humans orrepparttar 148331 nearby Mungo Man. However, once we found these creatures which some researchers even think could be part chimpanzeerepparttar 148332 issue became clearly in my favor. I thinkrepparttar 148333 divergence of human lice proven through DNA technology going back 1.18 to 1.8 million years ago is even more telling and I look forward torepparttar 148334 further research on pubic lice that might prove hominids cross-breeding. Here is one source for further review.

“It was astonishing and exciting enough to have discovered a new - and wholly unexpected - hominid species last week. The discovery ofrepparttar 148335 partial skeletons of three-foot tall "hobbits" onrepparttar 148336 Indonesian island of Flores would have been front page news however old they were. But what made them really extraordinary was their age. They weren't fossils. These were bones rotted torepparttar 148337 consistency of blotting paper, less than 18,000 years old; and there are grounds for hoping thatrepparttar 148338 creatures lived on into historical times. Some might even be alive in sufficiently remote island jungles today. The native legends about "Ebu Gogo" suggest that contact between Homo sapiens and Homo floresiensis took place withinrepparttar 148339 last century on Flores.

The idea that our ancestors had contact with other human species is a profound and disturbing one. The whole term "human species" begsrepparttar 148340 question. If they are other species, can they really be what we mean by "human"? Human is a moral category as much as a biological one. That's why it is such a useful weapon word inrepparttar 148341 debates about abortion. To call someone or something human is generally meant as praise, and implies that they should be treated as we treat ourselves.

This interpretation of "humanity" is not, of course, a necessarily human trait. It's certainly not encoded in our genes. Most cultures, in most of history, have had no trouble in treating other human beings as domesticated animals or very much worse. But we, who speak English, call this process "dehumanisation".

The skeletal fragments, andrepparttar 148342 legends from local people, make this story far more vivid thanrepparttar 148343 other evidence for human encounters with other humanoid species. That shouldn't obscurerepparttar 148344 fact that this isrepparttar 148345 second such story this autumn, andrepparttar 148346 first one is far more chilling.

The evidence there came from lice. Asrepparttar 148347 parents of almost any school age girl will know, human lice are extraordinarily tenacious and well adapted to life on our scalps. They don't survive for more than a few hours away from human flesh.
