ANCIENT SPACE TRAVEL
One of the most well know stories from the Hebrew Bible is that of Ezekiel. More than 2500 years ago Ezekiel stood on the desert floor near the river Chebar where he describes being visited by a massive flying machine. Among other things he denotes how the flying machine moved, how its parts worked and how it sounded. NASA engineers stripped back all the layers of poetry and created an artist rendering of how Ezekiel's Wheel may have really appeared and the results are astounding. Ezekiel was by no means the only Bible figure to describe strange aberrations in the sky. There are countless drawings, figurines and written descriptions of exotic flying objects that have been observed from the most distant past. If you look at the evidence on the surface alone it leaves one with the impression that "Space Travel " was common place in the ancient past.
The ancient Sumer were one of the most prolific chroniclers of Space Travel. Using a cuneiform alphabet of more that 400 letters they recorded in great detail the story of the space fairing Annunaki. The Annunaki traveled to Earth from a distant planet known to them as Nibiru. The Sumer left us with an enormous cache of information including crude artist renderings. Appearing on a Sumerian clay tablet is an image of what looks like a frame from a Hollywood storyboard. A Starship that looks eerily like the Enterprise from the Star Trek series is headed directly toward our solar system. The Sun and the Planets are depicted in the familiar flat plane that we use today. One remarkable detail featured in the image seems to represent a collector array on the left front pylon. Our modern spacecraft and satellites use this same dish shaped antenna to pick up weak radio signals that travel vast distances. These images are 6500 years old but yet still seem futuristic and contain knowledge that was only rediscovered in very recent times. The ancient Rama Empire known today as India left us with a cornucopia of data related to their space program and various flying craft. Sanskrit texts that have recently been translated define a number of various craft that are classified as being able to fly in the atmosphere only, while others are capable of space travel. One story tells of a battle on the moon and in orbit between the Rama and one of its rival empires. These Rama space craft were designed to carry a contingent of soldiers to any planet for deployment. The Egyptians carved images 5000 years ago of creatures they beleived came to earth from the heavens. Images of various craft have been discovered recently at the temple Abydos. These highly controversial carvings have set traditional archaeology on its heels. The images are detailed reliefs of futuristic flying craft that mainstream historians say are just a fluke. That in fact even though these images look like modern aircraft they are just the result of panels being carved over and over a number of times leaving these completely unintentional images. More recently the skies over 16th century Europe were filled with advanced flying craft. Many Renaissance painters conspicuously included them in religious frescos. Often the craft are seen with their deft pilots at the controls. The New World has had its share of space travelers, the Maya left us a number of elaborate stone carvings that reveal highly technical illustrations of space craft. Even ancient Japan has a long heritage of artifacts, writings and paintings that memorialize fantastic flying machines and their operators. The Dogu figurines dating back 10,000 to 30,000 years are an enigma. These ancient astronauts with there intricately carved spacesuits and helmets were made by humans that according to modern science were just emerging from their caves. These awesome looking figurines have been found in many areas and are always uniquely similar. The Dogu figurines always feature large goggles, a helmet and a complex suit with pockets and straps. How could the ancient Japanese conceived of these images when they were barely beyond wearing animal skins? All of these ancient artifacts leave us with many difficult questions. How did all of these ancient primitive cultures create such compelling ideas and technological understanding? Did these ancient people produce these ideas and objects? In the Atlantium continuum the answer is NO. All of these ideas and artifacts are most likely the ancient worlds' best shot at remembering an earlier age. The age prior to our earliest recorded history, the time from 50,000 to 12,000 years ago. New and amazing information is beginning to emerge that may put mankind on a completely different footing. We may ultimately find that our real origins are well beyond the bounds of this world. ATLANTIUM. Roc Hatfield/Author
