ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS: MAYA, AZTEC, EGYPT, INDIA AND MORE

Updated on April 6, 2014

ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS WERE AWESOME!

ALL ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS HAD A GREAT PAST A GOLDEN AGE! .They left many mysteries: Huge structures, Vimanas and machines. Those great ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS seem to know a lot more than we think. Mayas, Aztecs, Incas, Greeks, Egyptians, People form India, etc left many enigmas. Are you open minded to try to understand the possibility that they had a greatest science that our modern one? If you are then keep reading.

All of them speak about wise men who taught them about everything. India had those great yogis and that great knowledge. Egypt was a real awesome place full of wisdom. Greeks had those philosophers and Mathematicians. Aztecs and Mayans left those great cities.

All ancient civilizations were great and we can learn many things from them. We need to improve the way we are as human beings. We need to go back to get the ancient wisdom of those cultures. I do not mean to go back in time and copy their habits, but getting the meaning of life and the way to live in harmony with nature and the universe.

Why are those great civilizations gone? Where is their wisdom? Does anything can go up forever? I do not think so. Everything comes to life, develops or growth then it gets old and die. Right? It happened to all cultures. Something went wrong, I mean, WE WENT WRONG!

Please read more to understand my point, but keep in mind this: THE MODERN WAY TO THINK ABOUT LIFE IS NOT THE WAY ANCIENT PEOPLE PERCEIVED LIFE. THE WAY WE UNDERSTAND LIFE IS NOT THE WAY ANCIENT WISE MEN UNDERSTOOD WHAT LIFE IS FOR.

BE BOLD AND KEEP READING!

WHAT IS A CIVILIZATION?

Are we civilized?

I LOVE ALL CULTURES, but t there is no other civilization as the Mayas. They were really awesome. Yes, they left many mysteries and, sometimes, they are not easy to explain. We have a modern way to think and we believe we are smarter than the ancient cultures; that is a huge problem to understand them.

Modern theories about the Mayans are "THEORIES" and therefore just the opinion of some people. It is really usual to hear, when you go to a Maya's site, these words: "We believe..." "It is said..." "We think..." and so on. Why? Yes! Because they are theories and nobody can say: 'WE ARE 100% SURE THAT... " Nevertheless, people defend their theories as they have the unique truth. I DO NOT CLAIM TO HAVE THE TRUTH OR TO UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING, BUT I HAVE THE RIGHT TO EXPRESS MY OPINION AND WHAT I BELIEVE, THAT IS IT.

How can we understand any culture based only on what we believe and on out modern point of view? We need a different approach and a very open mind to go beyond the limits of our beliefs.

We cannot frame the Maya's wisdom in our tiny brain. They were a lot wiser than our so called civilization. Actually, let's ask us: WHAT IS A CIVILIZATION? This is a very controversial term. Let's ask us this: WHAT IS A CIVILIZED PERSON? If we think about a person who understands life and therefore knows how to live, then: WE ARE NOT CIVILIZED! If we talk about being a real person who controls himself, then WE ARE NOT CIVILIZED! If we think about a person who respects other beings, then WE ARE NOT CIVILIZED! If we think about a person who understands other persons, then WE ARE NOT CIVILIZED! If we think about someone who thinks of others' happiness, then WE ARE NOT CIVILIZED!

Well, you might think: We have buildings, electricity, and technology and so on. Well, we have them, but do you read the news about how people act? Do you have an idea about how many people is killed on the streets? Did you hear about students killing in their schools? Did you hear about the crazy guy who killed in a theater? What about drugs? Rapes? Crime? Rubbery? Etc., etc., etc.

Our great civilization has technology, but not human values! WE ARE FAR FROM UNDERSTANDING LIFE AND LIVING IN HARMONY WITH NATURE AND THE UNIVERSE.

Real civilizations were (for me) the Mayas, the Aztecs, the Greeks, the Romans, the Egyptians, the people from India and so on. They had a lot more understanding about life. They lived according to nature, according to the universe. We do not live according to nature; we do not live according to the universe. If we did we were living on a planet full of harmony, love and compassion.

CIVILIZATION AND TECHNOLOGY!!!!

Is technology what makes a civilization?

Wait! Mayas and Aztecs practiced HUMAN SACRIFICES!!!! Well, actually Mayans did not, Aztecs did, but to understand this please read THE MEANING OF HUMAN SACRIFICES. So you will understand that it was a symbolic sacrifice and not a literal one (Check link below)

People show their ignorance when they think about the Mayans, Aztecs, Incas and other cultures of the Americas as savages, but they think we are civilized because we can through an atomic bomb to kill thousands. Then we can kill kids, pregnant women, old person, etc. Isn't that worst?

So, my point is: A CIVILIZATION IS NOT THE ONE WHICH HAS TECHNOLOGY, BUT THE ONE WHO LIVES ACCORDING TO NATURE; ACCORDING TO THE HARMONY OF THE UNIVERSE AND THEREFORE THEY CAN LIVE IN PEACE WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION.

Well, you might think the ancient cultures had wars. Yes, they did. I am talking about THE GOLDEN AGE, which every culture had. Please read: THE FOUR AGES OR STAGES OF HUMANITY (Check link below)

All cultures speak about a city or garden or place where everybody was happy and in peace, it was the golden Age. All of them say we were taken out form that place, it is when we disobeyed the laws of the universe and therefore we violated the mysteries of nature. Yes, the Silver Age started when we were expelled out from that gorgeous place and so on… Please refer to the link above.

I am interested about the wisdom of that Golden Age, not about the fall of them. We can see the consequences of the fall of men right in our modern societies as I explain above.

We really need to go back to the ancient principles which let the ancient cultures to develop to that Golden Age. Technology is great; please do not take me wrong. I am not against technology. I am a tech lover; but TECHNOLOGY WITHOUT HEART WOULD LEAD US TO SELF-DESTRUCTION!!!!

TECHNOLOGY IN ANCIENT TIMES!!!!

Thanks to many discoveries and to the boldness of some great people we are getting a better idea of ancient civilizations and what they really knew.

Now we have many evidences that India, Egypt, Middle America (It is from Mexico to Panama and I can include Colombia because the Mamas are Mayans) had flying sources or aircraft. The Vimanas of India are depicted as flying objects controlled by a driver!!! The temple of Abydos in Egypt has some so called hieroglyphs that really resemble aircraft, please see picture on the right. One is a helicopter, other one is an airplane, another one is little similar to a tank. PLEASE, check link below.

Then if we think technology is part of a civilization then our ancient cultures got it too! Therefore, Our ancestors really had a civilization because they had technology and they knew how to live in harmony.

ALL ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS HAD A HIGHER WISDOM THAN WHAT WE BELIEVE.

We really need a balance between our brain and our heart, in other words: WE NEED INTELLECTUAL INTELLIGENCE, BUT WE NEED EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TOO! A brain without a heart is cold and a heart without intellect is fool. We need both.

Ancient civilizations had a different way to approach life because they had another way to see life; they understood what life was for. I am talking about the golden Age, please do not forget that.

Where are the great modern philosophers? Is there any? Can you introduce me a modern Plato, a modern Socrates, a modern Confucius, or Buddha? Where are the great leaders of our modern civilization? Planning the War World III?

All the great ancient civilizations had great books, full of advises to live better and in harmony. They were so smart to left behind those books in code to be understood by wise men free of selfishness; otherwise, regular human beings would use them to control and destroy.

Those books were sacred for them because they show them to live in harmony, in peace and with love.

Mayans had their Popolvuh, the ChilamBalam of Chumayel, codices and more. Aztecs had codices too. There is the Egyptians Book of Death and the Tibetans Book of Death. The great people from India had the Mahabharata with the glorious Bhagavad Gita, the Vedas, the Upanishads, etc. Taoists have the great Tao Te Ching. Japanese peopletheirKojiki and other books. We can list many scared books from all the other culture, but this is enough for now.

Studying ancient civilizations show how awesome they were in the golden Age. At that time wisdom was taught to every human being, But according to all ancient traditions the temptation came and with it THE FALL OF MEN. The Silver Age started as a result of that fall; then wisdom was accessible, but not everyone wanted it. After the silver Age the Copper age came and then war started because selfishness grew up too much. But now days, we are in the Iron Age, totally away from wisdom. This is the Age of Darkness when people are not concerned of wisdom; selfishness is the philosophy of every human being and only a few are aware of the need of a superior knowledge.

Great mysteries were left to remind us of the great past all civilizations had. This is the reason why we have great pyramids, marvelous cities and sites that dare modern explanations and go against the theories that deny our glorious heritage.

THOSE WHO BELIEVE WE ARE COMING FROM CAVEMEN ARE TOTALLY MISTAKEN BECAUSE THERE ARE PROOFS, AROUND THE WORLD, THAT POINT OUT GREAT TECHNOLOGY AND WISDOM IN THE ANCIENT WORLD.

WHERE IS THAT TECHNOLOGY NOW?

Ancient civilizations say it was a great flood. There are different version regarding that matter, maybe the most famous is the one in the Bible: Noah's Ark. Nevertheless, the Mayas, the Sumerians, and many more have the same tale with some variants.

This means Atlantis existed, but that goes against THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION. Yes, I know. Remember: It is a theory. We never say: "It is because of the fact of evolution.: We say: "The THEORY of Evolution." The more the science advance the more we know about the ancient cultures and the more we discover about them the more (This is good) the more we find structures, buildings, temples, etc. that defy that theory.

Actually there are several places found under water: Usually pyramids. But science do not promote these sites because they are against the most popular theory. Did you forget Galileo Galilee? He was against the common idea that the planet was flat and he was punished by that. Why do we have to accept a theory just based on the idea that most of the people believe in that?

Science is based on proofs, it is based on what we can see. Discoveries are proving about ancient technology, about ancient structures, about cities under water, etc. Those are facts, not theories.

WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE A VERY OPEN MIND TO UNDERSTAND THIS. OTHERWISE WE WILL DENY WHAT THE EYES CAN SEE.

ARE WE COMING FROM THE MONKEYS OR NOT?

WHAT ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS SAY ABOUT THIS MATTER?

THE INCAS' MYTH OF THE CREATION:

The Earth was empty and a big ocean was on it. It was THE LAKE TITICACA. The Sun came out from it and he made the stars and the moon. He took the moon as his wife and made people from rocks. The question is: Why from rocks? Here is where understanding the ancient wisdom helps to understand the reason. The rock was an ancient symbol of hard work (Rocks are not easy to sculpt) and it reminds us the PHILOSOPHER STONE, from the Alchemists.

In other words, the meaning of those people made of rock represents how hard it is to create real human beings. Remember: According to the Mayas the gods had to make several creations until they got the real men.

Then humans forgot to help each other and to be thankful for what they had (This look very similar to modern days, no?). So the Sun God punished them, so they could reflect and change. People did not change, so he changed them into monkeys!

This is a very interesting point because the Mayas said something really similar. In THE POPOL BOOK, Chapter three, written is that after the great flood some people became monkeys and that is the reason why they are so similar to humans.

In other words: MONKEYS CAME OUT FROM HUMANS AND NOT HUMANS FROM MONKEYS!

Interesting, now we have two theories:

1- The Evolution theory telling us that we are coming from the monkeys.

2- Ancient tales telling us we are the parents of the monkeys.

Please choose yourself.

ANCIENT CIVILIZACIONS!

Did they really have a higher science than the one we have now?
