Re: peruvian antiquities
- there is an anomaly of anatomy that all three races of peru share,
an interparietal bone. usually seen in ruminants and carnivores, a
triangular skull plate at rear.

- hi pat, all
see womb pic here
page before, author admitted that de la vega was the greatest
monument in peruvian history literature. then he unloads both
barrels to say de la vega was not impartial, and that he falsified
things to glorify the royal inca line.
i disagree, i think vega was one of our best sources for the
truth. i think he was factual, and only doubting him when he claimed
the inca built sacsayhuaman. imho, they merely added to that
i know, i expected greater things of tschudi. much truth is
gathered by author, if you ignore some of his conclusions. even he
contradicts some of them, as to direction of travel, and place of
origin for emigrants to the americas. it shows everybody has
difficulty being impartial, the answer is the resultant of all we
believe. when conclusions are reached, that the proofs dont
necessarily warrant, one has lost impartiality, and logical
we need science, and it is a measure for worldy things, but a
balanced outlook requires consideration from the spiritual point of
view. the mystics tell of the final days of atlantis, that there
were two factions, the evil sons of belial scientists, and the law of
one spiritual-minded people. how like the dispute between evolution

- p105'the ancient peruvians had two forms of writing : one, and certainly the most ancient, consisted in a species of a hieroglyphic characters; the other in knots, made on threads of divers colors.'many works on quechia were written in the 16th and 17th c in spanish. he lists these.inscription or petroglyphs, see huaytara on granite, 2 pages of imageshieoroglyph manuscripts on plantain found at sacramento.http://www.hti.umich.edu/cgi/t/text/pageviewer-idx?c=moa;cc=moa;idno=afk5502.0001.001;frm=frameset;view=image;seq=130;page=root;size=schina, mexico, and canada also used a form of quipu. i wonder if ogam relates to quipu? both have a base line, with staggered offshoots. both could contain history, or poetry, as likely as a numerical ledger. another author de poma shows an abacas in a painting of an inca. we know the american peanut made it to china very early. the beni area has ancient irrigation works, with asian relics insitu. we should assume that man crossed the oceans from the earliest times. this generation actually, to some, begins with noah, not adam. noah gives man a boat description at the start of our age. its ignorant to imagine all early cultures were primitive and crude. civilization is a fragile thing, all it takes is a breakdown of law, or the food supply, to throw us way back. invasion or plague destroyed many high cultures. logically, it has likely risen and fell countless times, and ours is nothing to brag about.author gives a technical description of andean grammar and idioms. quechua can express more concisely than many modern languages. they seem to be a very mature culture, millennias in growth.mike
- HI , Mike,I have seen a few of the ancient Peruvian glyphs, mostly at The Huaca de la Luna outside Trujillo and one at the end of a footpath from the ruins at Pisac.The Moche glyphs (Huaca de la Luna) are on individual adobe type bricks and are considered to be the signature of the one who made them, but if so, where did the idea of an individual having a specific design as his/her mark come from? Especially in a culture that supposedly had no writing.Along with the Chinese evidence, there is Japanese evidence. And, the Japanese consider these people to be relatives, which is quite something as they tend to be a very ethnocentric people..We can become so Eurocentric and Columbus oriented in our own historical record that we forget that other civilizations may have a history of interactions.~Judith Marie
- thanks for the info, i certainly would love to see them. those
are two of the places i plan on visiting. pisac is not far from
cuzco, a good hike for the healthy. trujilo or truxilo is on the
north coast, for those unfamiliar with the andes.
i believe a high culture using hieroglyphs will be found in
ancient peru. its possible that the maya had an andean origin. this
might be seen by the characters, when these leaves with writings are
there seems to be another less advanced culture, that produced the
petroglyph type of writing discussed before. not sure i posted the
image, but crude serpents, man, mountains, etc.
i wish the able linguists would tell us if there are similarities
between mayan and quichua or quechua. also an estimate of the
duration of separation if they are kindred. de la vega said that
yucatan was an inca province. revolution appears to have always
ignited in the americas. the inca protected against it by relocating
loyal subjects to areas that might revolt, move 10,000 back and
forth. always careful to move them to climates like their last.
such extremes in peru, that to do otherwise they may have perished.
the classic kingdoms of mexico seem to have fell centuries before the
conquest, from civil revolt by the lower classes. even roman
emperors paused to reflect how the masses would view it, before doing
something. this fear caused the inca to place 100% control of the
army in his hand only. this led to the fall of the inca. 100s of
thousands of soldiers stood by and did nothing while a few hundred
spanish held their emperor.
we have hieroglyphic, and crude pictoral impressions. i wonder
if author will discuss the ica stones? i hope so, even if we differ
on opinion. if the proofs are there, i do change my mind. the nazca
lines are significant enough to consider them a fourth mode of
communication. i wish that i could delve deeper into andean
prehistory. i expect it goes back further than most of the places
considered most ancient.
in past reviews, it was brought up by darwin, how the east coast
of south america is being terraced by seafloor uplift and horizontal
movement as well. it looks to me as though the west coast of peru
does the same thing, but lacks the ramp to keep the terraces level.
caral will one day be up in the cordilleras, 5-7,000 feet, and all
the evidence of her sealevel days will be explained as trade. even
the nazca lines are being uplifted, since they were laid down by
cultured man. some are upslope on the edges of the puna. on the
west coast, the lands seem to suffer submersion for a period before
the uplift. knowing it and proving it are two different things.
if the lands were elevated as now, tiwanaku and other high
cultures of the andes, would have chosen lower lands nearer the sea
and its bounty and trade.
hopefully, one of these days we will uncover the early history of
peru on plantain or mayquey leaves. then we will know of events
before the deluge of 2950 bce. the inca were wise and had centuries
to bury an archive of their early history. thousands of bundles of
painted leaves have been found since 1540. where are they? most
were burned, 16,000 bundles in one fire by the zealots. i would
guess underground or in caves near cuzco we might find the inca
records. quito very likely has ancient archives yet to be found.
there is evidence enough to consider that peru may have had
several contacts with foreign nations. there are degrees of proof of
jews in the andes, and magyar, frisian, phoenician, elamite, and
sumerian. from europe or around africa presented a long and
dangerous voyage, almost as perilous as crossing the pacific. the
drake passage is so much in need for sailors, that it should be
closely examined to see if it could have been a massive project by
early man. the amazon route to peru would be crazy and useless,
fighting currents the whole way. the wise traders probably came the
short trek taken by humboltd thru columbia to quito. the humboldt
current would make raft coastal trading easy and profitable between
guayaquil and mexico, the goods arrive thru the mountains from the
gulf side, and the traders return home by the humboldt aboard rafts,
with their imports.
we have reason to think that there was trade with asia, there are
things like that of china and japan, and figurines with asian looks
found, plus we have the fields in the beni with asian pottery.
it looks to be unlikely that foreign traders would know of
tiwanaku up in the clouds. the artifacts found appear to me to be
before the deluge and subsequent uplift circa 2950 bce. cuneiform
and elamite are not uncommon from that early age. contact could have
been made with tiwanaku when it was nearer the sea. that seems more
likely than having european sailors climb the andes in a search for
trading partners. the accepted notion should make more sense than it
does. unfortunately, the experts seem to be seldom correct when
forced to read between the lines, or out of the box.
let me look ahead to a possibility, our lads find an archive in
the desert, full of bundles of leaves with painted hieroglyphs. the
local diggers get wind of it, and soon the black market is flooded
with codies. many authentic along with many frauds. our lads test
the fakes, and dismiss them all, the facts given were contrary to
their thinking, etc. just a little neglect will soon destroy these
fragile records, and they will disappear forever, like the dug skulls
of the giants in america.
we must count the giants as a 5th race of peru. so far all we
have are legends and traditions, and huge megaliths, to cause us to
consider that giants may have been there. adequate for some, but
lacking for others.
just my musing ...
- its written that viracocha reincarnated more than once to join the inca. his last appearance said to be three centuries before the conquest. his mummy was one of those found by the spanish. it was examined, taken to lima, and buried in a hospital courtyard. my guess is the natives dug him back up during a dark or stormy night, and reburied him in a place of honor, such as a huaca. these mummies were light, and easy to carry by one man. viracocha died at an old age, his mummy had white hair.the inca for the most part were the kindest and most benevolent rulers. fathers could not have tended the people better. they were wrong to keep the people ignorant. its unfortunate that the use of writing had been stopped long before the spanish. dr tschudi says this, but like myself cannot prove it. so far he has offered no proof, other than reports of bundles of codices burned. peru has every climate, and also the driest desert. sometimes its wiser, to make an assumption, then see where it leads, then the implied conclusions can be compared to the popular dogma, to see which seems more reasonable.judging from the public works, bridges, aquaducts, canals, temples, etc, we should consider this high culture must have had either writing or telepathy, to accomplish such complicated and detailed feats. to assume the inca and all of south america had no writing, discourages people from searching. its certain that the spanish colonials were intent on keeping certain facts from reaching spain, and the rest of the world in consequence. spin doctors instructed [council of the west indies] each before the ship was cleared thru customs to return to europe. so that all evidence of writing by natives was a threat to pizarro, just as were the race of the rulers, and the greatness of the toppled culture. its repugnant that gold crazy barbarians, destroyed a culture far advanced above them. then destroyed the evidence. tiwanaku was described by an early colonial, and it had much statuary, paint, and textiles on the walls. far grander and more intact than we have today. it was stripped of stones, until little now remains.its still hoped that some cave, or buried chamber, or desert cache of historical documents might be found, to fill in the blanks and possible errors in peruvian history. i see no reason why inca history doesnt accept a start back at 2950 bce. some historians contend that the inca ruled for about three hundred years. that is not near enough time to go thru three stages of architecture at cuzco, or the other institutions to the smallest degree, long in place in inca society. the 2950 bce is still conservative, others say the inca came to the andes closer to 9750 bce. its the records for the time before the flood that we anticipate will be found.http://www.hti.umich.edu/cgi/t/text/pageviewer-idx?c=moa;cc=moa;idno=afk5502.0001.001;frm=frameset;view=image;seq=213;page=root;size=smike
- im curious, and we need to ask bernardo of bolivia, if the orura inscribed stone was found in the inca strata or site? the bowl may have been moved before it was found on a farm. it seems likely that these groups of foreigners arrived during inca times. its quite possible, maybe likely that these contacts were made before the deluge of 2950 bce. in my tour guide i noted that orura is high on the altiplano on the way to the high silver mines. its incredible, but its possible that orura was nearer sealevel a mere 5,000 years ago. imho old elamite seems nearest to the inscription's script, circa 3000 bce. there are some scientists working on ways to judge dates of elevation changes. surely, we will find a way to tell if the andes or ranges of cordilerra arose mya or only 5,000 years ago.we must not be confused by the word 'deluge', for its been known to be applied to poleshift, floods, and includes lands submerged, while others could be uplifted.the presence of sumerian and elamite inscriptions is disturbing, for with the gulf of panama closed they would need to come across the wide pacific, or around the cape of good hope, and cape horn, or brave the push up the amazon. it just seems unlikely for these nations to have reached the high plain of bolivia, and to know of its metals. it took the spanish many years to find the silver mine. if a major uplift occurred near 2950 bce, its possible that panama was uplifted in the same event, and may have been a strait before that. much of lower central america seems to be lacking in ancient sites. the oldest cities are on raised plateaus far from the current seashore. our lads should be able to carbon date some marine specimens, along former benches and seashores. if the experts are over confident in their assigned dates, they simply wont look or test their conclusions. we have an expert excavating mexico, who claimed that the central plateau showed evidence of being uplifted in prehistory.im puzzled what could have happened circa 3000 bce to cause global relocation of lands and nations. maybe a near approach by mars?mike
- cj, if i learn of any video or tapes of the conference, i will post to let you know. AA mag may have an article. i havent looked at my copies in a while.p269here is the passage describing the gold found in the huacas near trujilo. nothing was found in the greatest huaca - how strange. most was taken by governors, and bishops. the great peje remains unfound. plundered one was called the toledo huaca. i supose the few pieces of golden art that did reach spain intact, were later melted down by their descendents.c=moa;cc=moa;idno=afk5502.0001.001;frm=frameset;view=image;seq=293;page=root;size=sthe frisians should be discussed. an early chronicler, discussed on my pages, tells us the noble lady of the aracana of chile claimed to be frisian. the frisian book doesnt claim that they conquered and ruled in the andes since 10,000 bce, that was my conclusion. it does tie the history to the sinking of atlantis and altland, and that the sea-king inka took a fleet west looking for lands still above water. cayce ties the inca and atlanteans to the andes of 10,000 bce.we have only excavated 10% of the known sites in peru. nothing can be concluded until we progress further. this slowness results from the care taken strata by strata down. a trench, done carefully, to the middle of the mound makes more sense to me. that slice of history gives them an idea of the overall contents and history, shown by relics. it would be known on what levels to go with the most care, and which could be removed faster.its too late for the 20th century folks to correct their misconceptions. lets hope we of the 21st century, do better.imhomike
- here we have images of chimu architecture, and very impressive, inca or above in advancement. how curious that the chimu temple of the sun was not far from the moche city. if it was built by the inca it makes sense.i thought that cuelap was discovered by savoy? it was written of lots between 1843 and 1850.what a great wall was built nearby : 3,600 feet x 570 ft x 150 ft tall, all of stone, with earth fill. sounds more like a dam.a city of the dead, cut in stone, sounds worthy of study. an inclined plane walkway led upward, decreasing in width gradually as it ascended. sentry boxes were cut in strategic places. the top has a commanding view of the province. i dont recall seeing these sites mentioned in lonely planet.thru the book, author mentioned multiple great artifacts that he added to his collection. dr tschudi was a great scientist of his day. its better that he studied them at length, than they lie in the soil. these collections are difficult to trace by later researchers.how strange, the tomb has the man, his wife, and small bundles of their 7 children, as if they all died at once. maybe disease? many had red hair!one hill was so steep that they could not climb over 600 ft, before meeting a vertical stone wall with windows 60 ft above them. nothing known of that within.the gateways of old huanuco are incredible, one after the other, perfectly executed. the lookouts are worth a visit. as great as any monuments of the old world. author admits these are pre inca ruins. 2 leagues west of aguamiro, at 3,600m. cattle were kept in the ruins in 1850. monkeys are depicted in many places. this plain is a raised plateau i bet, and very old culture. it may have been tropical jungle when built. aqueducts carried water thru the city.the houses of chavin had running water. in a few places were found huge blocks carved with characters or signs that he could not decipher.terrible earthquake of 1586 destroyed much of the coast around pachacamac.fine buildings on coati island.ollantaytambo is said to be unlike all other andean constructions, and pre inca.de la vega says cuzco is a word in the private inca language, meaning navel.church of san cristoval is atop part of manco capac's palace.the endhttp://www.hti.umich.edu/cgi/t/text/pageviewer-idx?c=moa;cc=moa;idno=afk5502.0001.001;frm=frameset;view=image;seq=295;page=root;size=smike

However, what is incised in Bolivia is excised at Ollantaytambo.It was unfinished as the emperor died and the temple thus belonged to his mummy and his successor started a new royal estate in a different part of the Sacred Valley.~JM
