9.6 – DECODING THE COSMIC EGG (6.17.16)

ANCIENT ARTIFACTS [7d]

Silves, Portugal. 1984. Farmers digging a well for agriculture on land overlooking the ancient harbor come across a mysterious object 15 feet beneath the Earth – a six-foot-long limestone egg with a mysterious design protruding from its surface in three places. The egg has been dated to at least 3500 BC, and scientists conclude it could be even older. Today, the Algarve Egg is on display in the Lagos Museum, 19 miles from where it was discovered. Author Peter Daughtrey has studied the egg meticulously in an attempt to discover the story behind this mysterious stone artifact.

“How does this museum classify this stone?”

(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

“They classify it as a menhir, a standing stone, which there are many all the way up the west coast of Portugal; France, Brittany and into the Gaelic countries, Ireland, Wales, Scotland. Most of them are just big lumps of stone that have been dug up and erected, with a little bit of shaping. As you can see, this is a lot more than just a simple stone that’s been dug up. It’s really a piece of sculpture, or was a piece of sculpture.”

 – Peter Daughtrey (Author)

“Which is very interesting to see these different eggs, or these navels or omphalos, from all around the world – Symbols of creation.”

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

“Exactly. Every race has one. There is…there’s an interesting old legend, a Slavic legend, from areas like Bosnia and Yugoslavia, which says that they originally came from a land in the western ocean, which sank. And the center of their religion on the island was a large white egg; stone egg. This was white. You can see it’s been buried, it’s got the Earth discoloring it, but it’s sand – white sandstone. We’re talking of something that’s incredibly old. And this thing, up the middle here – resemble the rod…which throughout history has been a symbol of power, of creation. Moses had a rod. And in Mesopotamia, the rod was regarded as the symbol of the power of the gods.”

Peter Daughtrey (Author)

“If you look at this, this could be referred to as the origin of that staff that is used in medicine with the snake around it.”

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

In Greek mythology, Asclepius, the god of medicine, is always depicted with a serpent-entwined rod. And the Greek caduceus, a staff carried by the messenger god Hermes, consists of two serpents intertwined, closely resembling the design on the Algarve Egg. While the snake and egg are both considered fertility symbols, Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest that the combination of the two may hold another meaning. They believe it may represent extraterrestrial technology…and as evidence, point to the Druid’s Egg, or “snake stone.”

“Druid eggs are oval or roundish stones, often made of a calcinatious material, like this. According to Pliny the Elder, these druid eggs were used to cure illness, and if you looked through the hole in these stones, you would be able to see supernatural creatures.”

– Sabina Magliocco, Ph.D.
(Prof. of Anthropology & Folklore, CSU Northridge)

“Are we really just talking about a magical stone with magical properties? Or were these magical properties actually rooted in reality? What if this Druid stone was not necessarily just a ritual object, but that originally it was an extraterrestrial type of device?”

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

Might the Druid’s Egg have actually held otherworldly powers? Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest further clues can be found by examining another egg-shaped object that was said to connect humans directly to the gods.

Delphi, Greece. Standing at the center of this archaeological complex is a stone artifact known as an omphalos. The omphalos is carved with a pattern not unlike that found on the Algarve Egg…only these lines crisscross the entire stone. It is thought to be an ancient reproduction of the original omphalos that, according to the Greeks, marked the “navel of the Earth.”

“This here is a small-scale replica of the omphalos of the oracle in Delphi. It has these bizarre strands on them, intertwining, and, in fact, the plaque at the place where this thing is located – it actually says that this object fell from the sky, and afterwards, because of Zeus, life began on Earth.”

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

According to Greek mythology, the celestial stone enabled direct communication with the gods.

“The Delphic tradition was something like channeling. An oracle, a human being, a high priest, but still a person could receive the wisdom directly from a god. And at the center of this strange tradition was the omphalos egg.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.
(Founding Curator, Joseph Campbell Archives)

“So you have to ask, what was going on here? Why was the cosmic egg so important to these priestesses? And were they able to somehow use it as some technological device to stimulate their brains to, make these predictions?”

David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods)

Could the omphalos, like the Druid’s Egg, have been a technological device that connected humans with otherworldly beings? And might these ancient stories associated with the Cosmic Egg still hold a message today – that within us lies a connection to greater powers in the Universe? Perhaps further clues can be found by taking another look at the symbol on the Algarve Egg and how it might be connected to a biological structure that lies within the human body.
