In this article, we take a look at five of the MOST ADVANCED Ancient Civilizations on the planet.


Ancient Egyptian Civilization


Egypt


The ancient Egyptians were renowned for being super advanced not only in Mathematics and Architecture but in Medicine and Astronomy like only a few other civilizations on Earth.

Thousands of years ago, the ancient Egyptians developed medicine that allowed them to treat parasitic disease and malaria while flourishing on the River Nile.

Their knowledge of anatomy enabled them to treat a number of diseases using unconventional methods.

In other words, the Ancient Egyptian Civilization Helped shape the world we live in today.

Interestingly, Ancient Egyptian is considered as one of the oldest languages on planet Earth; it has survived for five thousand years, having a lifespan longer than nearly all other languages on Earth.

According to researchers, their language can be divided into five phases: Old Egyptian, Middle Egyptian, Late Egyptian, Demotic, and Coptic. Interestingly, their ancient writing system –which was made up of a complex system of hieroglyphics—can be traced back to around 2690 BC.

Scientifically speaking, the ancient Egyptians were way ahead of their time and by 1650 BC, they had a grasp of multiplication, division, fractions, prime numbers, linear equations, and geometry.

Oh and, not to mention that SOMEHOW, they erected some of the greatest ancient monuments on the surface of the planet: The Pyramids.

However, personally, one of the most interesting things about the ancient Egyptians is the fact that they were the first ancient civilization that invented a way to measure time. The ancient Egyptians did not only invent the calendar; they created the machine that kept track of time and had two types: Water Clocks and Sun Clocks.


Ancient Maya Civilization

Just as the Ancient Egyptians, the Ancient Maya were brilliant astronomers and even better mathematicians. They are credited –although it is still disuputed— for the invention of the ZERO and measuring the length of a solar year with fascinating accuracy.

The ancient Maya developed and flourished in the southernmost parts of modern-day Mexico, Guatemala, and Belize.

The Ancient Maya were one of the most important and developed ancient civilizations ever to exist on Earth. They are especially noted for the Maya script, the only known developed writing system of the Pre-Columbian Americas. The earliest inscriptions of a Maya script and identifiable Maya writing go back as far as the 3rd century BCE and were discovered in San Bartolo, Guatemala.

Interestingly, this ancient Mesoamerican civilization is known to have PERFECTED the use of RUBBER creation diverse products from it 3,000 years before people in the old World even knew what rubber was.

The truth is that when Spanish conquistadores set foot on the American Continent and met the Ancient Maya civilization, they encountered not a primitive culture, but one that was extremely developed leaving many Spaniards astonished.


Indus Valley Civilization

The Ancient Indus Valley Civilization is considered –based on a new study— as one of the oldest civilization on the planet (8,000 years old) and even predates the Ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilization by thousands of years.

The ancient Indus Valley Civilization is known for some things, but most importantly for their extremely well-planned cities. Before cities such as Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro were built, its constructors planned every single detail about the cities with extreme detail.

According to researchers during its peak, the Indus Valley Civilization may have had a population of over FIVE MILLION inhabitants.

They were among the first ancient cultures to create houses from backed bricks and incorporated extremely elaborate drainage systems and water supply systems.

It is noteworthy to mention that the Indus Valley Civilization achieved fascinating accuracy in measuring mass, time and length. In fact, the Indus Valley Civilization was among the first to develop a system of uniform weights and measures.


The Ancient Civilization of Caral

One of the most mysterious and advanced ancient civilization to ever exist in South America is a civilization called Caral, which lived in the coastal region of modern-day Peru.

According to historians, one of the earliest forms of communication –equivalent in age to the Cuneiform Script developed by ancient Mesopotamian civbiliztations—on Earth was developed by the ancient civilization of Caral.

In fact, archaeologists believe that Caral is one of the most sophisticated ancient civilizations ever to develop on Earth.

This ancient civilization created pyramids, circular plazas, and intricate staircases thousands of years ago.

Their pyramidal complex covers a staggering 165 acres and is one of the largest on Earth.

The Pyramids built by the ancient civilization of Caral is contemporary with the ancient Egyptian Pyramids.

The main pyramid found at Caral covers a staggering area nearly the size of four football fields and is eighteen meters high.

One of the most important things we have to mention about Caral is that no weapons, no mutilated bodies or any signs of warfare are present on the site, which points to the fact that Caral was a diplomatic and highly developed culture and the oldest city in the western hemisphere.

It turns out that the not-so-famous ancient Peruvian civilization developed advanced methods in agronomy, medicine, engineering and architecture over 5000 years ago. Their knowledge in several science ahs left today’s researchers perplexed and unable to answer the many mysteries behind the greatest South American civilization to develop independently.

As for energy exploitation and fluid mechanics, Caral took advantage of the wind, now known as the Venturi Effect, by channeling it through underground ducts in order to achieve high temperatures through bonfires.

Interestingly, researchers have found that the ancient inhabitants of Caral used willow —containing the *active chemical ingredient of aspirin*— to relieve pain such as headaches.

The ancient engineers of Caral were splendid engineers mastering civil engineering and applied seismic resistance technology to the over-5000-year-old constructions.


The Ancient Civilization of Tiahuanaco

Thousands of ears ago an advanced civilization rose near the shores of Lake Titicaca in the Andean mountains quickly becoming one fo the most advanced civilization on Earth. Strangely, like many other advanced civilizations, this too disappeared some 500 years after its rise.

The sophisticated people of Tiahuanaco created fabulous cities like Tiahuanaco and Puma Punku and were the FOREFATHERS of another great civilization. The Gateway of the Sun is on of the most well-known structures. According to archaeologist Arthur Posnanky, the temples the ancient Tiahuanaco civilization made was designed with polished stone blocks that have several rows of small round holes, according to Posnanky, they could have been used to hold something in the distant past. These round holes are so precise that it is hard to believe that ancient civilizations made them without some sort of advanced technology.

Did A Technologically Advanced Civilization Predate The Ancient Inca?

Did ancient mankind possess some sort of technology that allowed them to 'manipulate' stone in some 'magical' way

Is it possible that prior to the rise of the ancient Inca, a technologically advanced civilization existed in modern-day Peru?

What if before the Inca’s, a superior civilization that possessed incredible technologies inhabited the region and erected some of the most amazing ancient stone structures we have ever found in South America?

What if thousands of years before the rise of some of the most prominent civilizations of the Americas, a mother culture existed in the region that possessed a now-lost technology that ultimately allowed them to soften stone, creating some of the most fascinating ancient structures on the planet?

While there are many fascinating –and inexplicable— ancient sites on the surface of our planet, we have to mention Ollantaytambo, Puma Punku, Sacsayhuaman and Machu Picchu because these sites display evidence of a technology that has been lost in modern times.

These four ancient sites show fascinating traces of building methods that mainstream scholars cannot understand. Interestingly, at all four ancient sites, ancient cultures managed –somehow— to perfectly quarry, transport and place into position huge blocks of stone weighing hundreds of tons.

In fact, these stones are so heavy that modern-day machinery would hardly be able to move and place the stones.

The obvious question here is: How did the ancients do it?

Is it possible that prior to the arrival of the Inca, and Tiahuanaco culture, an advanced civilization inhabited the area, placing the foundations of some of the most incredible ancient sites of South America?

Compared in magnitude to other ancient sites of South America, the ancient citadel of Sacsayhuaman is believed to hold the secrets of an ancient civilization that predates the ancient Inca.

This ancient megalithic site dates back several millennia and is considered as one of the oldest ancient establishments of South America.

The builders of this fascinating ancient citadel managed –somehow— to precisely cut blocks of stone creating massive, megalithic walls that have challenged our modern-day builders in many ways.

On some of the stones at Sacsayhuaman, we see curious marks that suggest as if the stones were somehow dissolved.

You have these massive blocks of stone from 50 to 100 tons cut and shaped almost perfectly, and they are placed so tightly that you cannot fit even a piece of paper in between them.

Even more fascinating is the fact that some of the stones found at Sacsayhuaman –but other ancient sites as well— have ‘telltale signs’ that are indicative as if massive amounts of thermal heat were applied onto them which allowed the ancient builders to mold huge blocks of stone into place.

Interestingly, at numerous ancient sites among them Puma Punku, Tiahuanaco, Sacsayhuaman, Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu, we have countless walls that are composed of rocks of different sizes, yet somehow, inexplicably, all of the rocks fit together in such a way that not a single piece of paper can fit between them.

It doesn’t matter whether we look at Sacsayhuaman, Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu or Puma Punku, all of these ancient sites display fascinating features that cannot be replicated by modern construction workers.

Ollantaytambo: Traces of advanced technology


Sacsayhuaman: Incredible details as seen in other ancient site such as Ollantaytambo, Machu Picchu.


Located in southern Peru, around 60 kilometers from modern-day Cuzco we find the archaeological site of Ollantaytambo.

Nestled in a region labeled by the ancient Inca as the Sacred Valley, this fascinating ancient megalithic site is a marvel of ancient engineering.

Mainstream historians claim Ollantaytambo was built around 1440 AD by the Inca Emperor Pachacuti.

However, some archaeologists today believe Ollantaytambo was built upon the ruins of a far older city.

This majestic ancient complex can be compared in greatness to the Pyramids located at the Giza plateauPuma PunkuMachu PicchuTeotihuacan and Sacsayhuaman.

Just as with the above mentioned ancient sites, somehow, the builders of Ollantaytambo managed to quarry, cut, transport and place into position blocks of stone that weigh over 50 tons.

The question that no one has been able to answer is… how did the ancient achieve all of this? If you take in count that some of these sites are believed to be over 10,000 years old… you have to ask yourself what did ancient mankind know back then something that we are missing today?


The construction of Sacsayhuamán remains a profound mystery for researchers who have failed to understand how ancient people managed to quarry, transport and place these megalithic stones.


So the question I ask here is this: Is it possible that ancient mankind possessed, thousands of years ago, some sort of technology that allowed them to quarry, shape, transport and put into place huge blocks of stone which constitute some of the most incredible ancient sites on our planet?

What Happened To The Ancient City Puma Punku? Did A Cataclysmic Event Destroy The Ancient Complex?

Puma Punku is one of the most important places if you want to see what ancient man was capable of. These stone structures are among the biggest ever found.

Puma Punku is without a doubt one of the most fascinating ancient sites on the planet. Located in modern-day Bolivia, Puma Punku is part of an even larger archaeological complex known as Tiahuanaco. This mysterious ancient site remains as one of the most enigmatic archaeological complexes ever discovered on the planet. Based on recent carbon dating tests performed on organic material on the site, researchers estimate that this fascinating ancient complex was erected by the ancient Tiahuanaco people around 300 and 1000 AD –predating the famous Inca civilization.

The stonework found at Puma Punku is beyond fascinating. The andesite stones used in the construction process of this megalithic site were cut with such precision that they fit together perfectly, and are interlocked with each other without the use of mortar. Not even a sheet of paper can fit between their thousand-year-old stones. But how was this possible thousands of years ago? Even before the Inca, which are known to have been very skilled engineers? Puma Punku was created by an ancient culture which did not have a writing system and did not know about the wheel. So how was this possible?

Puma Punku lokes like a giant Lego Playground. The huge stones fit together like a giant puzzle and form load-bearing joints without mortar that have endured thousands of ears ago. Researchers agree that the angles utilized to create ‘flush joints’ are evidence of a highly advanced knowledge of stone-cutting and an advanced understanding of descriptive geometry. So you are telling me that all of this was created by a primitive culture that didn’t even have a writing system? What are we missing when we look at Puma Punku?

Furthermore, mainstream scholars even suggest that the blocks of stones used at Puma Punku are so precisely cut indicating  a possibility that the builders of Puma Punku used prefabrication and mass-production technologies, indicating that the Ancient Tiahuanaco had in their possession extremely advanced technologies far more advanced than anything seen in later periods after the fall of the Tiahuanaco empire.

But even before the ancient Tiahuanaco placed the gigantic blocks of stones we forget to mention that they were transported up a steep incline from a quarry located in the vicinity of Lake Titicaca, some 10 kilometers from Puma Punku. Other stones from Puma Punku are believed to have been transported from the Copacabana Peninsula, nearly 100 kilometers away.

However, according to local mythology, Puma Punku is directly related to heavenly deities and the time of the first creation. According to legends, the first inhabitants of Puma Punku had supernatural powers and were able to ‘carry’ megalithic stones through the air using SOUND. Interestingly, the Inca tribes believe these legends are true, and they firmly deny that their ancestors had anything to do with the construction of this ancient megalithic site.


“A story was told by the local Aymara Indians to a Spanish traveller who visited Tiahuanaco shortly after the conquest spoke of the city’s original foundation in the age of Chamac Pacha, or First Creation,  long before the coming of the Incas. Its earliest inhabitants, they said,  possessed supernatural powers, for which they were able miraculously to lift stones of off the ground, which “…were carried [from the mountain quarries] through the air to the sound of a trumpet.” (The Ancient Stones Speak A Journey To The World’s Most Mysterious Megalithic Sites)


While nearly everyone around the globes talks about the impressive stones found at Puma Punku and the laser-like precision by which they were cut, we seem to forget and ask a very important question: What happened at Puma Punku that caused megalithic stones to be thrown all around the place?

If you visit Puma Punku, you are going to see huge blocks of stone that look as if a giant cataclysmic struck the area in the distant past, causing a mass-displacement of the structures at Puma Punku.

The numerous perfectly fitted structures at Puma Punku were created with the most durable stone found in the region. The stones found at Puma Punku range in weight from 50 to hundreds of tons, so the obvious question we are not asking is: What could have happened at Puma Punku that literally threw megalithic stones weighing up to hundreds of tons all around the place? What could have produced such energy thousands of years ago? And why are mainstream scholars not investigating it further?

Check out these fascinating images of Puma Punku and let us know what you think:
