... same events even though the mythical molds into which they cast them differ substantially from the Popol Vuh. The first conclusion is chronological, the second is interpretative, and only through combining the two can the unity of the civilization be appreciated. 1. ARCHAEOLOGY AND THE OLMECS The archaeological record first, then. The general reader is fortunate to have at his disposal a thorough and recent summation of this evidence in a book entitled The Olmec World, written in 1968 by Ignacio Bernal.

... Reed boats similar to those used on the Nile for carrying obelisks etc. may have been introduced by Viracocha in 15,000 BC, a date calculated by Posnansky [7, studying the nearby Kalasasaya observatory, whose alignments accord with an obliquity of the ecliptic of 23 8" 48'. The present reading is 23 27". In Chichen Itza (Mexico) is the temple of Kukulka, equated with Quetzalcoatl, Orion reborn as a star, Plumed Serpent and Venus. Here human sacrifice was practised in turn by the Olmecs, Mayans, Toltecs and Aztecs in order to forestall the coming of the end of the world. To predict this, they developed sophisticated maths and an accurate calendar. Cholula, another temple of Quetzalcoatl, is 3 times more massive than the Great Pyramid of Egypt. At Tres Zapotes is an Olmec/Mayan calendrical stela dated to 3rd Sept. 32 BC and close by is a giant stone negroid head of c. 100 BC [8,9. According to some scholars, the Egyptians and Olmecs had no transition ...

4. Human Sacrifice - Then and Now [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... fertilising aspects of blood and rain, but the people of the rainforests would be the last to have to pray for rain! His chapters on the role of shamans and their role in society is, however, quite useful. Here we see how the shaman operates not as himself but under the influence of drugs and disguised as a jaguar. Thinking that this cult of the jaguar simply spread to the later cultures, Saunders follows its imagery from Chavin de Huantar to the Mochican culture and the Incas of Peru, and from the Olmecs at 1250 BC to Monte Alban, the Maya, Toltecs and finally the Aztecs in Mesoamerica, failing to relate this imagery to that of other world cultures. One of the earliest Jaguar figures carved by the Olmecs is extremely like the Chinese 'lion', even down to its 'flame' eyebrows, and the jaguar facial characteristics are also seen associated with a great bird of prey and that most characteristic of American gods, the feathered serpent. A Mochican image has a jaguar head with a headdress like a radiating sun, it ...

5. Heads Down! [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 123: May-Jun 1999 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Heads Down! S. Breiner wields a magnetometer when he searches for Olmec artifacts. This instrument allows him to detect buried objects, and he has made some surprising discoveries. The Olmecs flourished circa 1,500-400 B.C. in Mexican states of Vera Cruz, Oaxaca, and surrounding areas. This enigmatic culture is probably best known for the giant stone heads they carved out of hard rock. These massive heads, 8-15 feet high, seem to display African features. Breiner has found two of the 17 known heads. The most interesting one weighed 10 tons and was buried 18 feet deep! Why would a thriving culture bury the product of so much intensive labor? (Robinson, Dave; NEARA Transit, 11:12, Spring equinox 1999. Item attributed to New York Times, May 26, 1998.) Comment. The burial of the Olmec head might have had ritual significance, like the ritual smashing ...

7. An Anasazi Ley Line? [Science Frontiers Website]
... by about 450 miles, all sites are within 1 kilometer (5/8 of a mile) of the north-south line. Lekson maintains that an alignment this precise cannot have happened by chance. How could the Anasazi have achieved such an accurate alignment over such rugged terrain? It would not be easy even with modern transits. (Cohen, Philip; "One Dynasty to Rule Them All," New Scientist, p. 17, December 14, 1996.) Comment. It is interesting but perhaps not relevant that the Olmecs, predecessors of the Anasazi farther to the south, may have possessed the magnetic compass. See: Carlson, John B.; "Lodestone Compass: Chinese or Olmec Primacy?" Science, 189:760, 1975. (Reprinted in our Handbook: Ancient Man. To order this book, visit here .) Reference. Ley lines and other ancient alignments are covered more thoroughly in our Handbook: Ancient Man. For details about this book, go here. These three major Anasazi sites are precisely lined up north ...

8. More Evidence Of Precolumbian Contacts From Asia [Science Frontiers Website]
... Evidence Of Precolumbian Contacts From Asia The following news item appeared in the NEARA Transit: "Dr. George Carter excitedly reported news of a possible breakthrough in Asian/pre-Columbian contact. Dr. H.M. Xu is a Chinese scholar teaching linguistics at the Central Oklahoma State University at Enid, OK. There is a small publication reporting Dr. Xu's ability to read some Chinese characters plainly visible on several ceremonial jade adzes from La Venta, Mexico. The dates would be about 1100 B.C., relating well to the beginning of the Olmecs." (Anonymous; NEARA Transit, 8:7, no. 2, September 1996) NEARA= New England Antiquities Research Association. Comment. This is a first-class anomaly because mainstream archeologists wince visibly at the mention of ancient Chinese visits to the New World. Hopefully, details will be forthcoming. Reference. Our Handbook Ancient Man contains much more information on precolumbian contacts. To order this book, see here. From Science Frontiers #108, NOV-DEC 1996.© 1996-2000 William R.

... want to draw attention to some curious similarities. Figure 3 Corner masonry blocks, near Cuzco, Peru Figure 4 Corner masonry blocks, Valley Temple, Giza, Egypt The face of the Sphinx appears to have rather African features, with a definite similarity to the heads in Figure 2, even in the form of the headdress that they are wearing. The only problem with these African heads is that they do not come from Africa. They come from the Gulf of Mexico and they are associated with a people whom archaeologists call the Olmecs. We know very little about the Olmecs. Olmec means rubber people and that is how they were referred to by the Aztecs and they come from a rubber producing area of the Gulf of Mexico. All that we are left with are certain stone artefacts and compelling evidence that these people used a highly advanced calendar which was later inherited by the Maya. It is curious to see this African representation, this rather strange similarity, between the head of the Sphinx and these so-called Olmec heads (which can weigh up to 60 ...

... their quarries or sources, have been reconstructed again and again, have been abandoned by or remain from a disappeared culture, and are fallen, split, and cracked indicate that the fears of their builders were well-founded. The builders were dispersed or annihilated. When recently the megaliths were rediscovered and studied, they were considered mistakenly to reflect a peak level of technology of their builders. Actually, many of them may represent the work of marginal surviving elements from civilizations that peaked at higher technical levels but whose centers were eradicated. The Olmecs of the Mexican lowlands used basalt quarried from eighty miles to the North to build their monumental sculptures. Single stela and single heads weigh from forty to fifty tons. "The scale of the operation required dwarfs that of Stonehenge and speaks for an authority of great power at La Venta, backed by potent sanctions." [15 Gerald S. Hawkins examined the famous Nazca ground tattoo of lines for stars, planets, sun and moon alignments and found none. "The line complex was not built to point to the sun ...
