All of us at school telling – stone age people were wild prosimians. They lived in caves and hunted mammoths, sharpened their stone axes and feared forces of nature. Fear the savages came up with a religion and began to worship false gods… you know the rest all by yourself. But I have to disappoint you, dear fans, of the classic story. Because in this era were built on the planet’s most mysterious buildings – the MEGALITHS, why culture began to be known as megalithic. What is it? Megaliths are religious buildings from giant stone slabs. The most famous building Stonehenge. Although throughout all the land of such complexes ponastroila were many. In addition to circular structures laid out mazes, spirals, or set single stones (menhirs), gave the whole hectares.
A special place is occupied dolmens is a kind of stone “boxes”, carved with mysterious symbols on the walls. Scientists still argue about it? Although human remains in them were not, historians insist that this is the burial chamber. Modern physics has put forward the version that the dolmens may be batteries of unknown energy. For good reason the people around them are healed…
Now, sit down, gentlemen… All megalithic structures located on a single line (you can call it the Meridian) and carry a mathematically coded message about the location of planetesimal in the Universe. This is the conclusion of several scientists, and particularly interesting is the phenomenon described in books by Erich von Däniken. This theory was engaged Ernst Muldashev in the book “In search of the city of the Gods”. Continue reading
The origin of the term “Gothic”
The word comes from Italian. “unusual, barbaric, the barbarians” (the historical Goths, this style has nothing to do), and was initially used as a profanity. For the first time the notion in the modern sense used by Giorgio Vasari in order to separate the Renaissance from the middle Ages. Gothic completed the development of European medieval art, which arose on the basis of the achievements of Roman culture and the Renaissance (Renaissance) art of the middle ages was considered “barbaric”. Gothic art was a cult on purpose and Religious topics. It appealed to higher forces of the divine, of eternity, of the Christian worldview.
Gothic in its development is divided into Early Gothic, the heyday of Late Gothic Continue reading
According to the great historian Herodotus, the Egyptian pyramids can rightly be regarded as the first wonder of the world. Herodotus in the V century studied the pyramids of Egypt, especially his attention was drawn to the pyramid of Cheops — the most conspicuous among the entire complex. It was not the treasure, was not the tombs of the pharaohs, even, there was found no symbols that indicate the purpose of this great structure. Centuries have passed, but the results are the pyramids only confirmed the words of the scientist of antiquity — the pyramids are still considered the most mysterious buildings on earth. The mystery of the pyramid complex of Giza is still not disclosed.
As you know, rule the proportions of the great pyramid correspond exactly to the Golden Section, which is the main constant in architecture, science and painting. Modern engineers are surprised that the ancient architects, without the availability of modern equipment, were able with such precision to lay the Foundation of the great pyramid, given the fact that the pyramid is built on a massive hill and not on flat ground. It follows from this that the Egyptians builders of the pyramids had a wide knowledge in the field of astronomy, and construction engineering. Continue reading
