Re: Inca electroplating
- we should consider that anomalous factors are found in a few
numbers in many ancient cultures. i refer to the presence of
dolichocephalic skulls, and very high advanced techniques, like
trepanation, brain surgery, and now possibly knowledge of
electricity, and electro-plating. perhaps these point to contact
with atlanteans. these things were found at the same places
atlanteans that were given by psychics, as migrations had gone there,
circa 10,000 bce. we have the relics that tend to support contact
with a more advanced culture, but different, more recent dates are
assigned. many expert dates are assigned by the estimate of the
strata, compared to those dated by others, or base it upon the
handles of jars, or pottery. these are a house of cards, that we
support current views upon.
if you believe there is a 'book of life', or akashic record, that
contains an imperishable perfect record of all human deeds and acts,
then listen to the psychics and mystics, and consider their words,
while looking at the record found in actual relics. most begin to
alter certain views, and give closer inspection to the proofs brought
forward by modern experts. this is not a personal attack, for each
of us are experts in something. i speak to the concensus public
opinion, that some lead us to accept. thats true science, examining
all of the evidence, before concluding anything.
