Which secrets are hidden on Easter Island?

The uniqueness of Easter Island shows in diverse opinions of it. That is, on one hand, people know everything about this place, but on the other hand they know nothing. Its enigmatic stone statues keep being silent witnesses of the ancient and unknown culture. Yet, who could create these monumental sculptures out of rocks?

A little bit of geography. In the south-eastern part of the Pacific Ocean, between Chile and Tahiti there is Easter Island (see Figure 1). Local natives call it Rapa Nui. Easter Island is one of the remotest islands on the planet. The distance to the closest dry land is 2,092 kilometres in the west and 2,971 kilometres in the east. The island has a triangular shape with extinct volcanoes on each of its edges.

Easter Island recluses

There is a saying that life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. While reading the book Aku-Aku: The Secret of Easter Island by Thor Heyerdahl, I encountered a very interesting information. It turns out that for ages on Easter Island, which is located in the Pacific Ocean not less than 4,000 km far from the nearest mainland (I wrote about it in my previous article), there existed a weird ritual described below. However, let’s first refer to the relevant prehistory: when in 1722 the European civilization represented by Jacob Roggeveen arrived to the island, many white-skinned people lived there, which was quite unusual for that region. The attitude of people with other skin colours towards the white natives was very respectful, and there were even titles that could be gained only after a special “bleaching” ritual.

In quest of... The 11th century. Easter Island and Polynesia (Oceania). Part Four

We kindly recommend you to familiarize yourselves with the previous articles of the series In quest of… A journey to the remote 11th century:

 

A journey to the remote 11th century series has proved to be much more difficult than I expected, though such difficulty even peps me up. During the last two months I felt ten times sorry for having started the theme. Max Vorontsov and Yura Ignatov who are searching for relevant information on the web also note a similar unclear pressure from outside. A part of my consciousness throws in numerous provocative questions and doubts about the reasonability of continuing the series, but at the same time the other part unexpectedly finds counterarguments, saying without such an analytical material dedicated to the initial preamble the whole website project may come down to a mere collection of authors’ lyrical opinions and lose its ultimate purpose. Therefore, we shall anyway endeavour to continue, though with a slight adjustment in our movement: we will minimize assumptions from our minds and refer only to universally recognized facts and discovered photographs. In particular, in this article we will have very, very many images, since the Pacific Ocean is truly immense.

Among the finds in caves difficult of access... Easter Island again

Once again we refer to Easter Island, the navel of the earth. Perhaps, the subject is not particularly interesting for many readers, but as an ordinary researcher I cannot omit another little “puzzle piece” to be added to our picture and refrain from mentioning it on our website. After the series of articles dedicated to this marvellous corner of the world situated in the middle of the boundless Pacific Ocean (Which secrets are hidden on Easter Island?In quest of… The 11th century. Easter Island and PolynesiaVoice in one’s head and Easter Island) I suddenly wondered: should we assume the island was indeed attended by the great civilizer and Kind Friend of people, is it really possible that no traces of one of the main signs from the Primordial Knowledge has been preserved there? Here is what I discovered while rereading the book Aku-Aku: The Secret of Easter Island by Thor Heyerdahl.

I would like to tell you about a wonderful place on our planet – the Maldives, but not in terms of tourist attractions. Let us look at this paradisiacal corner of the world from an archaeological perspective, certainly with due regard for the Primordial Knowledge.

Wikipedia note: The Republic of Maldives is located in the equatorial waters of the Indian Ocean, approximately 700 km to the southwest of Sri Lanka. It’s a chain of 20 atolls consisting of 1,192 coral islands. The country population is 402,071 people, including 338,434 citizens and 63,637 non-citizens (results of the population census of 20 September 2014). The major religion is Islam.

People who lived happily. The Incas’ way of living

Occasionally talking to different people, I often hear a deep-rooted opinion that humanity has always lived as we are now living – in incessant conflicts, competition and injustice; that such a way of life is natural, and it has never been otherwise. However, from the AllatRa book we know that destruction of numerous examples of peaceful, prosperous and culturally rich coexistence of various peoples in different times has been methodically carried out by henchmen of the Archons, and the terrible results of this we observe nowadays.
