ATLANTIUM Episode XI
MAYAN SPACE PROGRAM
During the cold war of the 70's the United States and the Soviet Union were locked in an on going battle of one upmanship, an on going challenge for supremacy in space. Each side taking huge financial and human risks in an effort to crush the technological competition. Could Ancient Empires that existed long before recorded history have been players in a similar space race? An amazing hieroglyph carved on a 5 ton tomb cover that rested in the Mayan Temple of Inscriptions, defines a complex machine. The Temple itself was built from precise directions from the "Sky Gods". Scientist and Archaeologists have gone to great lengths to denounce any connection between the carving and Ancient Astronauts.
The hieroglyph is a fantasy impression of the Mayan God King transcending to the underworld. A little more literal interpretation might be that the Ancient Maya were very familiar with Rocket Technology and were in a space race with competing contemporaries. It is hard not to see a Mayan operating some kind of flying machine. The operator is resting in a position that looks like a modern astronaut. The Mayan pilot appears to be moving levers and twisting dials. Possibly most astonishing is a venting flame coming from the bottom of the machine. Large amounts of plumbing are seen in the carving that would indicate that fluids were being moved around in the vessel. The entire Mayan complex of cities, pyramids and lesser buildings contain a great number of artifacts that only today look familiar. Before the advent of Warner Von Braun all of these images would have been completely unidentifiable. A large clay pot found at Palenque could be a model of a rocket engine. The pot appears to be an inverted rocket motor. Flames are prominently displayed coming from the nozzle. Large inlet pipes that would carry fuel to the motor are clearly visible at the bottom of the pot. Cooling vanes are apparent at the center of the clay pot. These vanes are used today to keep rocket motors from melting during extended use. Gold model airplanes were found in the 1950's and have been classified as Mayan Idols or children's toys. These models are very accurate representations of advanced jet aircraft. Modern model builders copied the objects to make a full scale radio controlled model and the scale model flew with great stability. Perhaps the tomb cover is a detailed schematic of the internal workings of this jet. Just outside Mexico City the ancient outpost of Tula is home to 15 foot tall stone spacemen. These large stones are believed to have been carved by the Olmec people before the advent of the Maya. The carvings are very detailed and could easily be interpreted as Astronauts. A landing party. Could this be a commemoration of an ancient "First Contact"? The voyagers are dressed in protective suits, with air conditioning packs, utility belts, helmets and formidable looking side arms. These images require honest evaluation in the collective. It would not be all that unusual for one or two of these artifacts to coincidentally resemble modern complex machines. But can the coincidences become countless and still remain random chance? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is NO. The Mayans with their well documented knowledge of the cosmos and intricate understanding of the Stars could have been spacemen. Evidence of ancient highly advanced thinking is resurfacing everyday. Could we be seeing the remnants of a Mayan Space Program ? ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author
