In reply to a followers question on a past post, I found another interesting piece to add to your thoughts or other worldly theories.


Nasca Vally, Peru, 2000 years ago, ancient lines on the Peruvian desert form shapes and patterns that are described as being one of the most impenetrable enigmas of archeology.

Only being discovered by air when aircraft started to fly over the plains in the 1930’s, were these patterns discovered.

These geoglyphs (earth drawings) fall in to two broad categories: pictures and lines.

There are about 70 representational pictures that have been identified. Animal shapes called biomorphs, including anthropomorphic shapes, some flowers, plants, flowers, trees and everyday objects were seen from the air.

The animals include killer whales, a spider, a monkey, a hummingbird, and a 935-foot long pelican.

These lines and geometric figures criss cross the Pampas and (sometimes) overlay one another. The lines can run straight for up to several miles but, they also form shapes such as: labyrinths, spirals trapezoid, triangles, and rectangles.

Now mind you, in many parts of the world these geoglyphs would have been quickly destroyed by weathering and land use, but because of the conditions (unique as they are) of the coastal plains, little wind, rain, and few people to damage these lines they still exist.

One theory is that this is “The largest astronomical book in the world”.

An explorer and researcher, Johan Reinhard, suggested that it seemed likely that most of these lines didn’t point to anything geographical or celestial. Rather they led to places where rituals were performed to obtain water and the growth of their crops.

If this anomaly doesn’t peek your curiosity when you consider your theories that surround your “What If” question, I’m not sure what will.

I ask you to participate the conversation. Subscribe, comment, or just ask a question. You may find d some sort of answer you didn’t even know you were looking for.
