7.5 – SECRETS OF THE MUMMIES (11.28.14)

SUSPENDED ANIMATION [6f]

Cuzco, Peru. This sacred city was once the capital of the Inca Empire, and by the 13th-century was the center of one of the largest and most sophisticated Pre-Columbian civilizations in the Americas. The Inca were renowned for their proficiency in architecture and widely regarded as the most important of their many temple complexes was the one known as Qurikancha. Historical accounts describe it as a magnificent palace of gold that housed the most holy objects of worship for the Inca – the mummies of their dead kings.

“That’s where the king did his most important rituals and where the mummies of the previous Sapa Incas, or kings, were kept. And those mummies were communicated with on a regular basis.”

Edwin Barnhart, Ph.D. (Archaeologist / Dir., Maya Exploration Ctr.)

Even today, descendants of the Inca recreate the centuries-old practice of using the mummies in sacred ceremonies.

“Four times a year they were brought out and the living descendants would then consult with them about the affairs of state, as well as what they should do in the future.”

“It was believed that these mummies could communicate with deities or otherworldly beings in this twilight realm or in this state between life and death. They even had people specially trained to take care of the royal mummies. And some of the duties that these caretakers had were interpreting what the mummy wished to say, arranging meetings with the living and the dead and strangely even taking the mummy outside so he could urinate.”

Ken Jeremiah (Author, Eternal Remains)

But why would the Inca the most advanced civilization in South America at the time treat corpses as though they were living, thinking beings? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining the Incan creation story.

“The Incan creation myth describes how the world was created by the Ayar brothers. And the word “ayar” actually means mummy, so written right into the myth from the very beginning is the idea that mummification is of central importance to whomever and whatever these gods are. Is it possible that those mythical gods were actually extraterrestrial flesh and blood beings of some kind?”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

But if the Ayar brothers really were extraterrestrials, why would the Inca have used the same term for these alien visitors as they did for their mummified dead? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that the Inca may have witnessed these other-worldly space travelers emerging from a state of suspended animation.

“What if they were trying to mimic whatever it is they saw? And so, if someone with no technological knowledge, witnesses someone who is in suspended animation, and then they come alive – they have just witnessed the resurrection of someone, someone coming back from the dead, when in reality, that was never the case.”

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

Is it possible that the Inca witnessed alien visitors coming out of hibernation and that this is why they mummified their dead? Ancient Astronaut Theorists say yes, and claim that this might also explain mummification in other cultures, most notably the Egyptians.

“It’s possible that the extraterrestrials who visited Egypt would have needed to have some sort of hyperbaric isolation chambers to get from their home world to here. Now, if that is true, then it’s also possible that the mummification ritual actually originated from this long-term hyperbaric storage that they were doing with their bodies inside sarcophagus-like chambers.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

“One idea, certainly, is that human beings and these societies were seeing extraterrestrials who were wrapped in certain body suits and then they would come back alive. They were put in a special suspended animation that was similar to mummification. And perhaps this is why the Egyptians were doing mummification.”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Could mummification really have been an attempt by ancient people to imitate extraterrestrial space travelers? Perhaps. But Ancient Astronaut Theorists propose that there may be an even more profound explanation: that early humans were not simply imitating alien visitors, but intended to join them in the future.
