The first century, Teotihuacán, one of the largest and controversial Mayan cities in ancient Mexico. Its name symbolises “City of the Gods,” or “the place where men become gods.” Despite the ancient time period, the civilization was a swarming metropolis, complex architecture, engineering, and advanced technology.
Suddenly, the people of the great city disappeared in 7 A.D., leaving behind their immense achievement as a civilization. But question comes where did they go, and why? No one has the answer or is entirely sure of what happened, except a few key pieces of evidence tell us that the civilization that thrived in Teotihuacán were more advanced than once thought.
Both mercury and mica — minerals that play an important role in today’s aerospace industry — have been found in Teotihuacán’s ruins. Is it possible that the city’s people abandoned their beloved city to establish another civilizations elsewhere?
Other questions comes in mind that the ruins that were left behind. The Teotihuacán pyramids are very similar to the ancient pyramids found in Egypt. But How and why did that happen? The Mayans left behind many mysteries that scientists, historians, archeologists are still trying to decode.
What Is The History Of This Advanced Civilization?
Lying in about 50 km (31 miles) Northeast of Mexico City, the archaic ruins of Teotihuacán, one of the largest cities in the ancient world. It’s believed that this ancient city was established in 1 B.C. By the year 2 A.D., it was a thriving as most advanced civilization and metropolis with a population of about 150,000 to 200,000 people. It was named by Aztecs.
The ruins reveal scores of huge ancient buildings, most with flat roofs that support the theory of terraces and rooftop gardens. Other highly developed structures that appear to be residences are small buildings sorrounded around a central courtyard.
The city established a well planned irrigation system to take advantage of its plentiful supply of spring water. Good water supply, good soil and a moderate climate contributed to its flourishing fruits and vegetables.
Teotihuacán citizens had a good hold over arts and crafts. Archeologists unrevealed sculptures and pottery to a very good extent. They used murals to decorate building.
The Mysterious Substance Found Under The Pyramids.
Apart from ample water, Teotihuacán also had huge river of mercury running underneath it. Significant quantities of the mineral mica have been found in almost all of the structures in the city — a mineral that’s known today for its many uses in the electronics and aerospace industries.
Today, there is still no or least explanation for how the Mayans transported the mica or why they needed So much mica. In present era, mica is used as a capacitor in construction, as well as for electric insulation and thermal. It “acts as a moderator in nuclear reactions” and is thermally stable up to 500 degrees Celsius.
In addition, archeologists found evidence that the city had a “ advanced road system, working plumbing and running water.”
The question remains unanswered were the Teotihuacán people advanced enough to have access to other technology such as spacecraft?
How Teotihuacán Could Rule in The Possibility For Being Ancient Spaceport?
The predominant feature of the city is its wide range of the Dead, which begins in the agricultural fields and runs through the entire length city and ends at the Pyramid of the Moon. The total area today measures almost 3.2 kilometers long (2 miles) and 40 meters (131 feet) wide. Archeologists have found that the area was actually a lot longer and wider than it appears today.
Satellite photography strongly suggests the Mayans built this massive area to be an ancient spaceport or airport. The ruins of some of the structures along the possible runway indicate they were used to support aircraft or flying machines. After careful examination, scientists discovered several landmarks along the runway, these landmarks appear to have been designed for the pilots to navigate like those of modern times.
How Pyramids of Teotihuacán and Giza Are Similar?
Two great pyramids are the prime feature of the Teotihuacán landscape with a smaller one nearby:
- The Pyramid of the Sun at one end of the Avenue of the Dead
- The Pyramid of the Moon
- The Temple of Quetzalcoatl
The three Teotihuacán pyramids and the Giza pyramids are all “in the same position as the stars in Orion’s belt.” Even more astonishing fact is that the engineers of pyramids at both locations demonstrated high level of mathematical skills they had great understanding of the mathematical constants π, Φ, and e.
