What is a Radioactive Insulator Doing in the Pyramids Of Teotihuacan?

Mica, a powerful radioactive insulator, has been found in the pyramid of Teotihuacan; a city that date back to, at least, 100B.C.! Teotihuacan is without a doubt one of the most mysterious places in the Americas. While the incredible complexity and architectural precision are some of the details that have baffled archaeologists for decades, the presence of Mica, a powerful radioactive insulator, is the biggest enigmas of this great ancient city. Teotihuacan was one of the largest cities in the ancient world with over 125.000 inhabitants. The myth says that the ancient citadel of Teotihuacan was built by giants that came from ‘above’. As you walk through the city you notice immediately the difference compared to other ancient cities: it looks both incredibly futuristic and ancient at the same time. This ancient city has a modern layout, you have a street of the dead that goes for miles along which you have all of the major ceremonial architecture, including some of the largest buildings ever erected in the new world.

According to archaeologists the advanced design of Teotihuacan suggests that ancient builders had knowledge, not only of architecture, but of complex mathematical and astronomical sciences, and one of the things that are just incredibly amazing and different from all other ancient sites is the fact that from the air, Teotihuacan‘s city layout strangely resembles a computer circuit board with two large processor chips — the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid. Researchers have also found numerous and remarkable similarities to the Great Pyramids of Egypt. But just 100 years ago, there were no pyramids (you could see) at Teotihuacan. The staggering four kilometers of the Avenue of the dead and its well-known pyramids of the Sun and the Moon remained hidden from sight. Instead of the Pyramids, strange gentle slopes rose from the ground, equidistant from each other, which led to the assumption that these mysterious hilltops could have been artificial structures. They had been there for centuries, covered with vegetation and soil, forgotten like many other ancient sites. Curiously, when Hernan Cortes and his men conquered the Aztec empire in the sixteenth century they asked the natives who had built such a colossal city, to what the Aztec replied; we were not the builders of Teotihuacan, this city was built by the Quinanatzin, a race of giants who came from the heavens in the times of the second sun.

The Aztecs were the ancient civilization that named the city Teotihuacan, but they did not know the original name of the city. Teotihuacan can be translated to City where men become gods. The Aztecs named the pyramids of Teotihuacan Tonatiuh and Metal tzaquati ( home of the Sun and the Moon). The Aztec empire told the Spanish that the Pyramid of the Sun was covered with black basalt in the distant past, but when they arrived at the city, it was completely abandoned. In 1906, a worker digging at the site made one of the most important and mysterious discoveries that would forever change how we looked at Teotihuacan. On the fifth deck of the Pyramid of the Sun, a worker discovered a thick layer of laminated mica covering a huge area. It was an odd place for the material to be found. At that time, in 1906, mica was invaluable in the market. It was used for the construction of capacitors and was considered an incredibly well-appreciated electrical and thermal insulator which had a melting point over 1,100 degrees Celsius. For some obscure reason, the architects of Teotihuacan placed it there in the second century BC, at the time of the greatest expansion of their civilization. The question was why? Most of the Mica found in 1906 at Teotihuacan was sold at a great price in the market. But not all of the Mica disappeared from Teotihuacan. Today, there are still a few places where you can find Mica in Teotihuacan. For some mysterious reason, the unknown builders of this great ancient city managed to extract and transport Mica, and incorporate it into the buildings of Teotihuacan, what no one is able to answer is why? What was Mica used for thousands of years ago? Was it part of some lost ancient technology? If so… what type of technology was it? And is it possible that the builders of the Ancient City were in fact ‘Gods’ as some legends suggest? Obviously, Mica was not incorporated to these constructions for decoration purposes because you couldn’t see it, so it is clear that this mineral was incorporated into these monuments for another purpose.

This star act so strangely, could it be surrounded by alien Dyson sphere’?

Here a long article talking about the strangest star found in our Milkyway till now. As I don’t agree the arguments against the Dyson sphere, I want to share my counter arguments with you. Let me know your though.

Remember KIC 8462852, the F-type star in the constellation Cygnus with the odd flickering habit? You know, the one that had some scientists talking about the incredibly remote possibility of a “swarm of alien megastructures?” Bet that jogged your memory. Well, scientists are still pretty much absolutely certain that a vast system of solar panels is not orbiting around this far-off sun, harnessing its energy to power a super advanced extraterrestrial civilization and blocking the progress of light on its way toward Earth in the process (thus the flickering). Researchers at the SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) Institute have turned their radio telescopes toward the star in hopes of picking up a few alien signals, but thus far none have come our way. “The hypothesis of an alien megastructure around KIC 8462852 is rapidly crumbling apart,” Douglas Vakoch, president of SETI International, said in a statement. “We found no evidence of an advanced civilization beaming intentional laser signals toward Earth.”

Why should they beam a laser signal toward Earth? Even if they would be listening for extraterrestrial life out of there solar system, how would they know that we are there? Our civilization has been sending electromagnetic signal since less than 100 years, while this star is 1.500 light years away!

And Schaefer’s study, which he posted on the research-sharing project arXiv, only deepens the mystery.Remember, Tabby’s Star first came to public attention because of the way observations from the Kepler Telescope showed dramatic dips in its brightness at irregular intervals. Even a Jupiter-sized planet transiting across its sun’s surface would only alter the brightness by about 1 percent, and these changes were much more significant.

I’d add that it is not likely either that a 20 times bigger planet is orbiting that star since a planet of this size would actually be a star!

Schaefer concludes that the dimming trend would require that 648,000 giant comets (each about a tenth of the diameter of Pluto) pass in front of the star in a series of carefully orchestrated transits over the course of the last century. The likelihood of that happening is, well, very, very low. Whether it’s lower than the likelihood of an alien megastructure, Schaefer doesn’t say.He does also argue against another potential explanation for the flickering: that dust circulating around the star is blocking its light. As was the case for the comet cluster hypothesis, this explanation simply requires too much dust to account for the century-long dimming.

Hmmm, not so sure about the dust… they should have seen how dust was behind by bedroom desk!

Slate’s Phil Plait points out that this gradual dimming is something scientists might expect from a Dyson Sphere (the term for the kind of hypothetical structure we might expect an advanced alien civilization to build around their star). Theoretically, as the aliens-whose-existence-remains-entirely-dubious build their structure, it would block more and more of the star’s light.

But Plait is adamant that he doesn’t actually think that a Dyson Sphere is the explanation. He calculated that the aliens would need to build a minimum of 750 billion square kilometers of solar panels to account for the 20 per cent drop in their sun’s brightness.

“That’s 1500 times the area of the entire Earth,” Plait writes. “Yikes.”

Most probably a civilization of that level wouldn’t use our type of solar panels dude! Let’s imagine they have solar panels only few molecules thick, it would only requires 1.000T per layer to cover that surface… I’d say nothing special, we have sent ourself more material into space…

What’s your though?
