Egypt Treasure Hunters found amazing ancient artifacts

Posted in Ancient History, Archaeology, Art on October 1, 2014 by betweentwopines

Continuing from the first post this is room Two. For shortcut start watching from time 3:50.

Worth hundreds millions of dollars ancient Egyptian artifacts found by treasure
hunters west of Aswan. The government of Egypt failed so far to get their hand
on them. The video was recorded by the treasure hunters posted to advertise
sale. Fours storage rooms were each worth $500 M. Some statues were pure gold
weigh over 100kg. However this info can not be verified except a few videos
posted and talk circulating the cities of Egypt. No more videos regarding this other than the previous one.

The Ether Wave Piano

Posted in Art, ATS Thread, Technology on September 9, 2014 by betweentwopines

 

 

” Claimed to be the most outstanding musical invention of the twentieth century because of its ability to reproduce the tones of any musical instrument or voice and to create entirely new tones, the device is operated by direct mechanical control of a series of oscillating radio tubes, which generate the sound waves of variable pitch and volume.
The keyboard of the instrument is used as the scale, and the position of the forefinger of the right hand above it regulates the tone produced. Attached to the finger are two finger pieces, connected to a cord that operates a series of condensers in the instrument, thus varying the capacity, and hence the frequency, of the radio circuit.
Volume is controlled by means of a lever at the left hand side of the instrument, its range being from an almost inaudible pianissimo to a ringing fortissimo. Staccato notes are produced by tapping the finger on the volume lever. The rheostat permits the notes to be cut off at will by breaking the plate circuit of the amplifier. Very little effort is required in playing this instrument; an apt pupil can learn to play it easily in about four months.”

On a White Horse (poem by Mike Galsworthy)

Posted in Art, Climate/Weather, Uncategorized on September 6, 2014 by betweentwopines

 

ON A WHITE HORSE

The hooves, they drummed a devil’s tattoo
Upon the woodland path.
The mechanical horse, it was angel white
And never had had a sin in its mind.
The rider, he was the admired man
And he saw no end to his sight —
A captain of industry with bags of golden leaves
That he ripped from the trees
As he kicked his horse to ride on ride on

To the rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm of hooves;
The gathering of leaves and the rhythm of hooves.
“I built this horse for riding,” said he.
“This horse, I built for riding.”

But the weather-clerk stepped across his path:
“Stop!” he said, “look around.
Your riding whips the winds and strips the trees
It shifts the rains and lifts the seas!
Slow down,” he said “or change course”

“No! I cannot risk that I’ll be overtaken”,
The rider he said to the clerk
“There are other riders chasing me
And I built this horse for riding,” said he
“So move out of my way, I ride on.”

To the rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm of hooves.
To the gathering of leaves and the rhythm of hooves.
“I built this horse for riding,” said he.
“I built this horse for riding.”

But one mile on, people cluttered his path
Crying “We’ve seen the darkening skies!
Please hook back some leaves onto our trees
To catch the winds that bring disease
And rot the fish in our waters!”

“But it’s not just me,” the rider said.
“There are too many people on this earth
And when they crawl and breed in the mud,
they bring the winds and the rains and the floods.
I earned these leaves, now move out of my way”
And the rider just rode on.
The rider just rode on.

To the rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm of hooves.
To the gathering of leaves and the rhythm of hooves.
“I built this horse for riding,” said he
“I built this horse for riding”

But then the air turned dark and the rain it poured down;
And the horse it broke and stumbled and fell
Deep into the mud it stumbled and fell
With the rider, it stumbled and fell.

The rider then saw his daughter
And called out to her in the panicking crowd —
“My daughter, come see, I have the leaves
To buy an ark to sail the seas when the waters rise.
Though others perish, we will survive.”

But as he put his hand into the bag,
Those leaves crumbled to dust and blew away.
Up to the dark storm they blew away.
So strangely from his hand they blew away.

“Oh father,” said the daughter
“Your leaves, they have no magic now
Because nobody will trade them.
The farmer gives his food to men-at-arms
To keep off the jackals of jagged towns
That come running through the ragged woods

Since the rats overran the granaries
From the flagstones to the rafters,
When the miller’s children all fell sick in the squalid dereliction.
And where’s the doctor? He’s fled to higher grounds
To drink the untouched rains —
Because poisoned rivers run overland
Through eye sockets and open mouths
Of people fallen in burning famine upon the putrid earth.

And this is not how it was meant to be;
That our once green earth should rot to black like this
And our children walk the rain, drenched in war, fear and pain.

It is a dark time
It’s a dark time for humankind.
And you, father – you led in the other horsemen
To the rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm of hooves,
Riding, riding, on your white horse.”

Incredible Roseau Stone Reveals 200,000-Year-Old Writing

Posted in Ancient History, Archaeology, Art, History on August 18, 2014 by betweentwopines

 

 

 

MessageToEagle.com – The incredible Roseau Stone discovered in Minnesota, US could easily re-write our history.

 

The stone does not only reveal that several ancient civilizations from across the sea visited North America in prehistoric times, but also that our ancestors were familiar with writing 200,000 years ago!

 

The story of this incredible stone is shrouded in mystery.

 

Putting together the pieces is almost like solving a detective story.

 

Now, let us try and unravel the mystery and learn more about this fascinating object.

 

The small stone, not more than perhaps two inches was discovered in 1927 in Roseau, Minnesota by Mr. Jake Nelson. While digging in his garden, he accidentally came across several stone hammers, arrowheads, ceramic shards, animal bones and this precious stone. One of the reasons he was able to uncover so many artifacts was because his home was on the site of an ancient Indian settlement.

 

 
The stone was given to John Jager, a famous American anthropologist and expert on ancient texts. Jager was a remarkable scientist. He was a genius interested in world-wide anthropology and epigraphy. He was also one of the first pioneers to put forth the idea of cultural diffusion and global travel, to North America, by the ancient mariners.

 

When Jager compared the engravings on the Roseau stone with other ancient inscription samples collected from around the world, he made a stunning discovery. “This inscription was made by ancient Greek and Egyptian civilizations. There are even Sumerian signs. Sumer is considered to be the first civilization on Earth and it is older than the Cathay Hüyük (Katal-huyuk) in Anatolia (Turkey),” he wrote in his diary.

 

Roseau famous stone, found in America. once decrypted. As it turned out, even before the Sumerians Russian words were written in the same way as now. In the tape-rim stone hidden words, and above shows the face of the ancient goddess of Yara: a pair of dark eyes, beads and canine, sticking out of the closed mouth. From above it is clear that the stone is oval, very reminiscent of a lion’s face from the front, which is most characteristic of the zoomorphic face Yar. On the circumference is an intricate decorative pattern — a belt. His signs are clearly visible, but the style of writing very similar ligature — writing style, which is usually written section titles (chapters) manuscripts.

Jager examined the stone for two years. In his notes he wrote that the runes on the Roseau Stone were sometimes in two rows, one on top of each other. Some of them were small while others were larger.

 

After some time, Jager identified the runes not as Scandinavian as some would believe, but as medieval, southern European and therefore with a root origin from the Balkans and Slavic regions.

 

The runes Jager identified on the Roseau Stone are ancestors to scripts used later in Russia.This was without doubt a sensational discovery.

It would mean that people of ancient Russia visited North America 200 000 years ago! Furthermore it would also imply that an ancient Russian civilization develop writing long before Sumerians.

Jager’s discovery was astonishing and dangerous to the scientific establishment.

What happened next is a disaster.

 

Jager created the “Ribbon”, you see below using the old photographic methods of the time. In those days people did not have the same camera equipment and computer software we have today. He did what he could with the tools he possessed.

After he took the photographs, he gave the Roseau stone to Anthropology Professor Jenks and Geology Professor Stauffer at the University of Minnesota. These scientists destroyed the artifact by “cleaning it” in an acid bath, which reportedly ate away most of the evidence on the pebble.

 

The artifact was considered a threat to the conventional history of North America. A pre-Columbian artifact must not exist!

 

Jager was absolutely devastated and furious when he learned about what happened to his precious stone.

 

Fortunately, photos taken by Jager survived in a library file that was located a few years ago. After his death, most all other private works of John Jager (outside of his public architect career) such as his complete notes, photos, and conclusions about the Stone, were burned when his widow died and could not protect them anymore.

 

John Jager’s original photos. John Jager (1871-1959)

 
Now comes yet another intriguing part of this story. Was the Roseau stone really destroyed? Was Jager deliberately told that the artifact was ruined in order to stop him from investigating it further?

 

Investigation reveals that the Roseau stone was in possession of a certain Mike Holm who lived a little longer than Jager. After Holm’s death the stone was stored with his other belongings at the State Historical Society in St. Paul, Minnesota. Then the Roseau stone vanished and was missing from 1952 to 2011, when it was found again.

Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication

Posted in Alien, Ancient History, Archaeology, Art, Conspiracy, Cosmos, Science, Technology on May 24, 2014 by betweentwopines

Have aliens already visited Earth? Nasa book suggests that ancient rock art could have been created by extraterrestrials

  • A new book details the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (Seti)
  • In it the authors discuss the methods through which we might find aliens
  • These include searching for signs of life on planets or finding messages
  • The book details some of the challenges ahead for making first contact
  • But ultimately the authors say it is something that might happen one day

By Jonathan O’Callaghan

Each month a new planet is discovered that bears similarities to our own – and it is becoming increasingly apparent Earth is not unique.

So it stands to reason that of the billions of Earth-like planets in our galaxy alone, there might be another that hosts life.

It’s a thought that is gaining more credence all the time, and now Nasa has released a fascinating book detailing how, or if, we might communicate with some of these worlds.

A new book made for Nasa called Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication details the methods through which we might communicate with aliens. Although this artist's illustration is a bit fanciful, the authors suggest that Earth may already have been visited

A new book made for Nasa called Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication details the methods through which we might communicate with aliens. Although this artist’s illustration is a bit fanciful, the authors suggest that Earth may already have been visited

 

Some of the most interesting chapters tackle the issue of alien communication in the past, present and future.

In one section, for example, William Edmondson from the University of Birmingham considers the possibility that rock art on Earth is of extraterrestrial origin.

‘We can say little, if anything, about what these patterns signify, why they were cut into rocks, or who created them,’ he writes.

‘For all intents and purposes, they might have been made by aliens.’

The book is titled Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication.

Vakoch begins the 330-page book by postulating how difficult it might be to make first contact.

‘If a radio signal is detected in a modern Seti experiment, we could well know that another intelligence exists, but not know what they are saying,’ he writes in the book’s introduction.

He goes on to add: ‘Even if we detect a civilisation circling one of our nearest stellar neighbours, its signals will have traversed trillions of miles, reaching Earth after travelling for years.’

But, all hope is not lost – throughout the book Vakoch and his colleagues tackle these very problems, and provide solutions that may prove invaluable in the future.

‘To move beyond the mere detection of such intelligence, and to have any realistic chance of comprehending it, we can gain much from the lessons learned by researchers facing similar challenges on Earth,’ he continues.

‘Like archaeologists who reconstruct temporally distant civilisations from fragmentary evidence, Seti researchers will be expected to reconstruct distant civilisations separated from us by vast expanses of space as well as time.

‘As we attempt to decode and interpret extraterrestrial messages, we will be required to comprehend the mindset of a species that is radically Other.’

Rock art, an example in Niger pictured, is cited as one possible example of aliens visiting Earth before. Ultimately, however, the authors detail some of the methods we might employ to search for alien life including scouring exoplanets for signs of civilisation

Elsewhere in the compendium the authors tackle the question of the possible biology, evolution and physics of an extraterrestrial race.

Vakoch explains how the methods via which aliens communicate might be vastly different from our own, making contact difficult.

He says that messaging through sound, as we are used to on Earth, might not be possible.

‘On the other hand, vision and the use of images would appear to be at least plausible,’ he writes.

The authors also detail way we could send messages of our own through methods such as Active Seti, using giant radio dishes like the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico (pictured). They say their are immense challenges in making first contact, but we can learn lessons from the history of civilisations on Earth

And, he adds, imaging the surface of habitable planets in the future might reveal ‘the physical arrangement of objects’ that suggests the presence of alien life.

Edmondson suggests, for example, that ‘an optical telescope of diameter 620 miles (1,000 miles) could resolve an object of diameter one kilometre (0.62 miles) at a distance of 100 light-years.’

Vakoch concludes his introduction with the monumental task awaiting scientists and scholars across the world, but highlights the importance of these studies and research.

‘These scholars are grappling with some of the enormous challenges that will face humanity if an information-rich signal emanating from another world is detected,’ he writes.

‘By drawing on issues at the core of contemporary archaeology and anthropology, we can be much better prepared for contact with an extraterrestrial civilisation, should that day ever come.’

                                                      THE HISTORY OF SETI

In 1959, Cornell physicists Gieuseppi Cocconi and Philip Morrison published an article discussing the potential to use microwave radio to communicate between stars.

A year later in 1960, astronomer Frank Drake conducted the first hunt for alien life with an 85-foot (25 metres) antenna in West Virgina, but after two months concedes defeat.
In the 1960s, Soviet Union performs extensive searches for ET, again with no success.

In the 1970s Nasa began to take an interest in Seti, with the chances of success seemingly growing as technology advanced.

In 1988, Nasa began sweeping surveys of the night sky for signals, but Congress terminated funding a few years later.

The independent Seti Institute, established in 1984, took over the job.

In 1992 the first planet outside the solar system is confirmed, an almost certainly uninhabitable world orbiting a pulsar.

In 2009 Nasa’s Kepler telescope launches and, over the next few years, finds hundreds of planets.

And just last month, the first planet of a similar size to Earth and at the correct distance from its parent star to host water, called Kepler 186-f, was found.

It is the most likely place that has been found that could host life as we know it.

It was edited for Nasa by Douglas Vakoch, Director of Interstellar Message Composition at the Seti Institute.

With the help of other experts he tackles a number of topics including the prospect of life on other planets and the means through which we might send or receive a message.
