Mysteries of Easter island
Oblong stones set vertically. From here 2935 pieces. They stretched in 12 rows with a length of four kilometers. Some of them remained undeciphered until now inscriptions. These megaliths by archeologists to the bronze age.
Heading further North towards the city Orah, you can find another example of the megalithic structures — the dolmen of the mané-Kerioned long covered gallery. Turning to the East, and passing the ruins of an ancient Abbey, an inquisitive seeker will encounter
the way a number of amazing monuments: the dolmen de Rodessa, huge and lonely menhir Old mill, the weight of which, according to calculations, exceeds 200 tonnes, and closer to the town of Plouharnel — the whole field of ring-shaped menhirs and cromlechs. The largest of these is the cromlech of Menec consists of 70 menhirs, a dolmen of others, and has a diameter of almost 100 meters.
Megaliths can be found not only in Europe, Asia and Africa, but also in the New World, in the Crimea and the Caucasus. But most of them remained in the North-West of France and in the French Brittany and also in England. You have to think, not accidental that the words “dolmen” and “cromlech” was based on the Breton spoken language. Because “the Dole” in Breton means “table”, “chrome” — “circle”, and the words “men” and “Lech” and “stones”.
Of course, the humble Breton menhirs, dolmens and cromlechs cannot be compared with egipetskaya or the famous ancient temples, preserved to our days. But looking at these stone monuments into oblivion civilizations, you find yourself wondering: “How could people in those days to move huge blocks of stone and putting them into such magnificent buildings?”
The drawings preserved in the little Museum of prehistoric culture in Carnac, show how presumably the builders constructed the megaliths: hundreds of people moved on the rollers stone blocks with the help of levers and ropes, lifted them and installed vertically. Let’s say that it was really so, according to the creators of Karnak Museum, but remains without answer another question: “why were these structures built?”
Excavations seems to have proved that dolmens and cromlechs were places of religious ceremonies and burials of the dead. The desire to create has died-
PWM lasting “forever” home was common to many cultures on different continents of our planet. However, supporters of the “funeral ritual” of hypotheses somehow do not mind the fact that in the vast majority of megalithic circles, cromlechs, dolmens and other structures not found any burials. Many researchers attribute this to the fact that these burials were robbed in antiquity. But does the megalith builders were so naive not to foresee this possibility? After all, the most famous megalithic structures — structures are completely open, with no protective devices.
Thus, we can state that during the entire period of the study of megaliths archaeological methods “information the catch” was very minor.
At the same time, it should be noted that the completely unexpected results of the study of megaliths in the early nineteenth century were obtained. astronomers. English scientists — N. Lockyer, A. and J. Tom. Wood and the American Dzh. Hawkins identified a number of megalithic structures that were used for astronomical observations of the moon and Sun, and often very difficult and takes time.
For example, it is proved that the vertically set stones could play the role of vizier, which allowed to fix the points of sunrise and sunset and moon in the days of the solstices and equinoxes. However, critics astronomical hypotheses, in particular, note that in such a “rich” megalithic terrain objects such as, for example, French Karnak, if you wish, you can pick up a significant number of those or other lines that will be “tagging” some of located here the old stones.
On the other hand, if we recognize the astronomical hypothesis is correct, then it remains unclear why the ancient creators of megalithic conducted such complex and time-consuming astronomical observations? If we assume that observations of the Sun were determined Hiroki conduct
agricultural work, it must be said that the farmers to begin sowing or harvesting didn’t need to know the exact astronomical date. They were more interested in the condition of soil and weather, that is, those factors that change significantly from year to year and little is tied to a specific astronomical date. But even harder to explain why megalithic astronomers needed the careful and systematic observation of the moon.
Without claiming to full coverage of the hypotheses put forward in studies of the megaliths, it is possible to mention another attempt to solve the problem. At different times a number of scientists had put forward the hypothesis that some megalithic structures are a kind of “stone books” of the ancients, in which encrypted important scientific data about the Earth, the Solar system and the Universe, left to the next generations of earthlings representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations. They (the knowledge) waiting for the time when humanity will be ready to use them.
In the history of modern science there are many cases where progress in any one area was achieved by connecting to the solution of various problems in professional and research methods quite from other scientific fields.
An example is the extraordinary version proposed in 1992 by the authors of the monograph “Beauty secrets” — Kyiv researchers will Purdue R. S. (geologist) and J. M. Shvaydak (physicist):
“On that basis. properties of megaliths, we put forward the hypothesis that the megalithic structures (at least some of them) could be a COMPLICATED TECHNICAL DEVICES, NAMELY, GENERATORS of ACOUSTIC AND POSSIBLY ALSO ELECTROMAGNETICALLY-TIONS”.
The authors of this hypothesis present the relevant evidence “with trepidation” because “it is much easier and safer to criticize other people’s hypothesis, than to propose and defend their own”. Reasoning R. Fours-blowing and Y. Shvaydak may seem incredible, nevertheless we will briefly introduce them to readers.
Accurate topographic survey of the megalithic circles and avenues has revealed some peculiarities in their structure. For example it turned out that most of the stone circles is a not perfect circle, but much more complex shapes — so-called flattened circles and egg-shaped ovals. The question is: for what purpose were made to these forms. An example is the geometry of the stone rows at Le Menec (France).
These series, which runs from West to East, gradually approach each other by a complex mathematical law, described by a parabolic function! In the middle of the twelve ranks of the observed “kink”, all the rows change direction by a complicated geometric construction.
Strange, but natural changes and the height of the individual stones in the rows: Western ends of the largest stones, up to four metres, and to the East, their height gradually decreases to 40-60 centimeters to the East
