1895, eight years before the first successful flight of the Wright Brothers, Sanskrit scholar Shivkar Talpade tested an aircraft he created only on the basis of information obtained from ancient Indian writings. Talpad was a student of Vedic texts who decided to build one of them of the vimans, flying machines described in Vedic scriptures.

Talpad's first flying machine was named Marutsakha or friend of the wind. He was able to take off with this plane in front of a thousand audience on the beach in Mumbai. Allegedly, it was moving at 60 km / h and kept air in 30 seconds. The Wright Brothers managed only 15 km / ha and their aircraft survived in 12 seconds. If this story is true, it dramatically transcribes the history of flying. And it is exciting that Talpad created his plane according to the writings written thousands of years before humanity had ever thought of flying.

In Abusir / Egypt 5000 years old core drilling can be proven. But the core drilling is actually considered an invention of our time.

Historia natural antigua: los intercambios biológicos interamericanos

Por Guillermo Alvarado Induni [ Precio: ₡ 4 000 ]

El propósito de la presente obra es sintetizar los conocimientos científicos que se han adquirido sobre los intercambios florísticos y faunísticos entre Norte y Sudamérica durante los últimos 75 millones de años (m.a). Esto basado en las evidencias fósiles más relevantes halladas en dichos subcontinentes o en aquellas dejadas a su paso a través de las Antillas o de América Central.
Se trata de dar las bases para entender mejor la distribución de ecosistemas actuales y pasados, así como describir hallazgos de grandes mamíferos extintos y de restos culturales de nuestros antepasados precolombinos en sus etapas tempranas.

Comprende una introducción a la Paleobiogeografía de América Central y el Caribe y sobre el filtro biogeográfico de Mesoamérica. Detalla una reseña histórica de la paleontología de los vertebrados en América Central, los hallazgos de megamamíferos pleistocenos en Centroamérica y Costa Rica en particular, y los primeros hombres en América y su coexistencia con megafauna extinta. • Envíos por Correos de Costa Rica a todo el país
• Más información por DM

In Aztec lore, there is a place known as Mictlan which serves as the underworld governed by Mictlantecuhtli ("Lord of the Underworld") and Mictecacihuatl ("Lady of the Underworld"). When an individual died, they would be required to travel down the nine layers of Mictlan. The journey would take a daunting four years, but they would be aided by Xolotl, a god associated with lightning, the dead, and protecting the sun. To get to Mictlan, there would be numerous difficulties ahead at each level, such as a river of blood with aggressive jaguars, mountains that would slam and crash into each other, and an area where strong winds blow that carry sharp knives made to cut flesh. Numerous cultures have devised a concept of Hell or underworld. But what purpose does it serve and why? Could the human soul have something in it that warns of such a place? Our church studies the soul and various cultures across the globe that have this in their beliefs.

Cuauhtemoc By @enrique_revuelta He was the eldest legitimate son of Emperor #Ahuitzotl and may well have attended the last New Fire ceremony, marking the beginning of a new 52-year cycle. When Cuauhtemoc was elected #Tlatoani in 1520, Tenochtitlan had already been rocked by the invasion of the Spanish and their indigenous allies, the death of #Moctezuma and the death of Moctezuma's brother #Cuitlahuac, who succeeded him as ruler, but died of smallpox shortly afterwards. In keeping with traditional practice, the most able candidate among the high noblemen was chosen by vote of the highest noblemen, Cuauhtemoc assumed the rulership. Although under Cuitlahuac Tenochtitlan began mounting a defense against the invaders, it was increasingly isolated militarily and largely faced the crisis alone, as the numbers of Spanish allies increased with the desertion of many polities previously under its control. #Cuauhtemoc #Mexica #Aztec #Azteca #Mexico #Mexico🇲🇽 #Nahuatl #Tenochca #Huasteca #Tenochtitlan #Mexican #Mexicana #Mexicano #Chicano #Chicana #Native #Indigenous #Warrior #FirstNation #FirstNations #MesoAmerica

SACRED CULTURA at The Getty. We just got to see some of our culturas most amazing treasures and sacred items. Sang some songs to Coyolxauhqui and Chalchiuhtlicue - cuz we got emotional and our hearts swole and it's only right to acknowledge these energies in a good way. Check it out if you can and offer up some prayers and good intentions for the ancestors currently up on the hill. ..Ometeotl..

Uno de los muros del gran basamento de Cacaxtla. En el podemos observar a un probable guerrero mítico ataviado como águila y sosteniendo un bastón de mando, olmeca-xicalanca, cuyas huestes fueron derrotadas y dispersas por los toltecas-chichimecas para tomar el control de Cacaxtla y Cholula.

Shooting stars are always a beautiful sight to behold. Stargazers and astronomers always appreciate how they decorate the night sky. Ancient cultures created elaborate stories involving falling or shooting stars. For example, the Greeks and Romans viewed them as signs of a major event, like the birth of a king's son or their death, while in the Far East, Chinese emperors had star interpreters who would explain what a shooting star signaled. Although these sound like tall tales invented by ancient people, they also had a very deep scientific understanding of shooting stars, which are not related to stars at all. They're actually space rocks, or meteors, that have not burned up in the Earth's atmosphere. Ancient Egyptian, Babylonian, and Mayan texts have revealed that those cultures actually would be able to predict, track, and calculate celestial movements with advanced geometry and mathematics so they knew exactly what they were. Our church appreciates the poetic as well as scientific approach ancient cultures took to these events.

From "Collecting for a New World: Treasures of the Early Americas". We are proud to be publishing this beautiful book in association with the Library of Congress @librarycongress
Photography: @leebewing
Author: John W. Hessler
Typical of the style of ceramics found in shaft tombs, which are unlike burials found in other Mesopotamian cultures. Shaft tombs are generally dug straight down about 20m before opening out into one or two rooms. Little is known about the actual cultures that produced such figures, largely because many such artefacts have come to light because of looting rather than proper archaeological excavation. The particular type of braided cap worn by this figure marks this as a style of pottery called "Ameca" by art historians.

If one thing is true, it’s that I have an unwavering passion for soup. Soup making is one of my favorite things and I’m really f**king good at it. Come out tonight to experience the return of our Pozolli Xoxoctic. Last year this was my best soup of the winter season. This year I’m changing it up a tiny bit and featuring some seasonal wild mushrooms 🍄🍄🍄. The broth is herbaceous 🍃🌿, creamy, and so flavorful, and we use organic nixtamal (hominy) from the best tortillería in LA @kerneloftruthorganics. Come get a bowl tonight of this healing goodness. Service starts around 6pm! 🥣💖👁✨

Come out tonight to experience the return of our Pozolli Xoxoctic. Last year this was my best soup of the winter season. This year I’m changing it up a tiny bit and featuring some seasonal wild mushrooms 🍄🍄🍄. The broth is herbaceous 🍃🌿, creamy, and so flavorful, and we use organic nixtamal (hominy) from the best tortillería in LA @kerneloftruthorganics. Come get a bowl tonight of this healing goodness. Service starts around 6pm! 🥣💖👁✨

Electric lightbulbs documented in use at the Temple of Hathor in 2020 B.C. To our knowledge, the electric lightbulb had not been invented until Thomas Edison created it in the 1800's A.D.

Ancient astronaut proponents suggest that aliens came to Earth long ago, citing such evidence as this ancient Mesopotamian cylinder seal as proof of advanced technological influences.  Modern impression on clay of Achaemenid cylinder seal, 5th. cent. BCE. A winged solar disc legitimises the Persian king who subdues two rampant Mesopotamian lamassu figures.

Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca
Naufragios
Catedra, 2018
.
Este es el relato de las desventuras de los primeros españoles que exploraron el sur de los actuales Estados Unidos y el norte de México. Aquí no se leerán conquistas ni hallazgos de riquezas, sino la tenaz resistencia, a lo largo de ocho años, contra los huracanes, las hambrunas, las enfermedades y los combates con los nativos. Cuando el temporal arrojó la barca de Cabeza de Vaca a la isla texana de Mal Hado (hoy, Galveston), se enteró del canibalismo entre españoles y, al poco tiempo, una tribu los esclavizó a él y a sus tres compañeros: Castillo, Dorantes y Estebanico. Se trata de un viaje real. Los cuatro españoles vagaron, tras huir de los indios esclavistas, desde la costa texana hasta la del Pacífico mexicano, en una caminata de más de tres mil kilómetros. Los seguía una multitud de indígenas que los veneraban como sanadores, hombres veraces y generosos.

Volví a visitar esta pieza hasta que estuve satisfecho con ella. 🐍 La legendaria serpiente emplumada Quetzalcóatl y su tradición espiritual nos ayuda a descolonizar al resistir contra los invasores que aún persisten hoy. ¿Qué título debería darle a este dibujo al carbón?

Image from an illuminated manuscript, the Madrid Skylitzes, showing Greek Fire in use against the fleet of the rebel Thomas the Slav. The caption above the left ship reads, “the fleet of the Romans setting ablaze the fleet of the enemies.” The Byzantines of the 7th to 12th centuries hurled a mysterious substance at their enemies in naval battle. This liquid, shot through tubes or siphons, burned in water and could only be extinguished with vinegar, sand, and urine. We still don’t know what this chemical weapon , known as Greek Fire, was made of. The Byzantines guarded the secret jealously, ensuring only a select few knew the secret, and the knowledge was eventually lost altogether.

Acaso Motecuhzoma y los gobernantes mexicas usaban penachos? Raramente o nunca
En su día a día como Huey Tlahtoani Motecuhzoma usaba algo muy similar a esto: la diadema de turquesas llamada xiuhuitzolli. Este color soñando podía ser usado por él gobernante.
