3.8 – ALIENS & LOST WORLDS (9.15.11)

THE NAZCA [9d]

Peru, South America. 250 miles south of the capitol of Lima lies one of the driest places on Earth – a wasteland that was once home to an ancient civilization called Nazca. Thriving between the 15th–century BC and 500 AD, the Nazca were a deeply religious and spiritual people who built their ceremonial center in the temple city of Cahuachi.

“Cahuachi is the largest adobe ceremonial center in the world  Therefore, we find groups of temples and pyramids of immense size. Spirituality was the most important thing in Cahuachi The people of Nazca used the sacred spaces to elevate themselves in order to communicate with the deities.”

Giuseppe Orefici, Ph.D. (Dir., Antonini Museum)

“The Nazca were predominantly were farming people, so Cahuachi was built at the prime, when they had all the food they needed and they had enough resources to be able to develop a highly  evolved religious system.”

(Nazca: Decoding the Riddles of the Lines)

But the Nazca people and their culture mysteriously vanished some 1,200 years ago, though not before etching a series of enormous geoglyphs – or ground drawings – into the nearby desert floor.

“The Nazca Lines were an important element of their religious worship and their ceremonies. They would walk through these lines during their ceremonies, breaking ceramics and offering important elements to the deities from their own culture.”

Giuseppe Orefici, Ph.D. (Dir., Antonini Museum)

The great geoglyphs are composed of dozens of spirals, triangles and trapezoids, as well as miles of zigzagging lines.

“This whole flat area, which covers several square miles, is covered in stones made of iron oxide, either red or black, and that’s what gives it the darkish, brownish red appearance. But right underneath the surface is clay, which is white, and all I have to do – is that. The contrast between the clay and the iron oxide gives a Nazca Line.”

Acre size drawings depict a hummingbird, a spider, a killer whale and a human figure with owl-like eyes.

“They would have had to have had observation from the sky in order to guide the workforce the ground as to how to draw complicated figures such as the spider and the hummingbird.”

(Nazca: Decoding the Riddles of the Lines)

Preserved for centuries by the lack of wind and rain, the lines are best seen from the air, and were first spotted by aviators in the 1930s. But why did the Nazca create patterns that could only be properly seen from a great height?

“The obvious answer is because you can see only from the sky. Many of our ancestors would talk about the Star People. All these sacred sites we consider it is for whom? For the Star People.”

– Jorge Luis Delgado Mamani
(Co-Author, The Andean Awakening)

“At Nazca and other areas in Peru there are legends of Sky People and gods coming down from the sky.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

But might the so-called Star People referred to in the Nazca legends really have been extraterrestrial beings, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe?

“In the beginning there was just one line made by some robot or some extraterrestrial spaceship or space shuttle because they were looking for raw material for energy.”

Erich von Däniken (Author, Chariots of the Gods?)

“After a while the local population would see all those tracks on the ground. And they would say, that these tracks were just left behind by these divine beings, by the gods. And then they would wonder and ‘what can we do for those gods to return?’”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

According to Ancient Astronaut Theory, the earliest of the Nazca Lines were made in imitation of the trails left by the first space visitors. Later generations added more elaborate lines, and then shapes and figures, all in an attempt to signal the star gods to return. But they never did.

“And this caused the population to doubt the deities, because it was mainly a psychological problem they had with their deities that brought about the abandonment and collapse of the Nazca culture.”

Giuseppe Orefici, Ph.D. (Dir., Antonini Museum)

But could there be other evidence of alien contact with the ancient people of Peru that is even more astounding than the Nazca Lines?

“Some of the skulls that we find today, because it’s a very dry desert and they’re well preserved, are some of the most astonishing, elongated skulls that you’ll ever see. And they look like extraterrestrials.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

According to Nazca legends, the gods had elongated heads, much like the distended skulls of the controversial Egyptian pharaoh King Tutankhamen and his sister Meretaten.

“I honestly believe that the largest of the elongated skulls represent hybrid human beings, dating back thousands of years, who lived here very peacefully and could very well be the ancestors of the lnca. And that could be the reason why the Inca suddenly were these people of incredible sophistication who came from seemingly nowhere. It’s possible that they’re descendants from Star Beings.”

Brien Foerster
(Expert, Inca and Pre-Incan Civilizations),
(Author, A Brief Introduction of the Inca),
(Elongated Skulls of Peru & Bolivia),
(Nazca: Decoding the Riddles of the Lines)

“Were they trying to imitate people they had already seen, gods from outer space?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Is it possible the ancient Nazca altered their bodies and their lands in order to communicate with or emulate something their ancestors may have witnessed, something out of this world? Perhaps further clues to mankind’s extraterrestrial connection can be found in the most remote place on planet in the South Pacific.
