I was recently thinking about why so many ancient stories and themes are seen around the world. I mean why would humans develop the same basic cultures thousands of miles away from each other with no contact to spur that? Why would beings capable of thinking uniquly bulid the monuments in roughly the same style (the pyramids in Japan, Egypt, and South America? What would impower someone to bulid a massive pyramid in a dry desert, a feat engineers find hard to accomplish even today?

And why do certain areas of the world have strange properties, such as the Devil and Bermuda triangles?

Do you think that all of these things have natural explanations or that something else created them?

Why does the penomania of deja vu occur? In a world with infinete possibiltys something should never repeat itself.

Feel free to post any other things that you consider to be mysterious, and we can discuss them.

Just check the architectural differences between all the pyramids. Check also the fact that it is one of the easiest style of building to build. hell, the bottom supports the weight of the top. Bermuda triangles are like hmm... metaphysic and unproven. Thats how I see it.

Yeah, the way cultures repeat each other. Things like Mother Earth are shared amongst almost all cultures, and (seem to) have developed entirely seperate from each other. There are many myths that have evolved on other sides of the world that are almost word-for-word the same. How?

Duh! Aliens!

:p

I can't answer the questions about the pyramids- I'm no engineer. But I can answer the thing about the bermuda triangle. My hypothesis is that the unstable region of ocean in that area produces many storms that are powerful enough to sink boats and ships and crash airplanes into the ocean. However, keep in mind that the airplanes we travel in today fly much higher than those of the past, avoiding the storms and treacherous weather posed by the triangle's weather. The boats, I'm not quite sure if there are any routes that go through that area of water anymore but I'm assuming that the bigger the boat, the harder it is to capsize and sink.

I think deja vu is just when your brain has a little short circuit or something. So you think you remember it before days ago or in a dream. You seem absolutely certain, you are 100% sure that you have seen it before. And you have cause your brain tells you that. It's just your brain doing weird stuff. The deja vu phoneman probably has similar brain properties to when you have a dream.

I watched a special on the History channel on the Bermuda triangle I found interesting. In addition to the wicked storms produced in that area, they showed evidence of many masive craters on the ocean floor caused by the sudden release of methane gas pockets geologist have proven to be there. Through different experiments, they showed how these can and do make even huge ships lose their bouyancy (spelling?) They also showed how the rising clouds of this gas effects gauges used at the time alot of these aircraft disappeared, making it appear to the pilot that they were gaining altitude rapidly, thus making them over correct by putting the nose down. They were also very surprized when they used vintage engines to see how clouds of methane gas effected them. It only took a very small percentage of this gas going into the intake to completely shut the engine down. As for the pyramids being built in different countries at about the same time, when there was virtually no way for them to communicate with each other....I find that rather strange and intriguing. Definatley makes me wonder about the various possibilaties.:confused:

Yea I also heard about methane and it is actually probable.

About the pyramid, it is one of the most basics architectural form you can do, after all, it is just a pile of rocks.

take sand, let it fall grain by grain and youll get the form of a pyramid (approximately). Human inspires himself of his environnement, I guess it is it.

True, but I consider the pyramids more than a pile of rocks, especially the ones in Egypt. Take the small ports that you can stand in the interior and clearly see they point to the constolation of Orion. These had to be cut into each stone BEFORE they were put in place. That's the part that peeks my curiosity....just wonder how the hell they did it in the time they accomplished building these things. Would be kewl to go back in time just to see...but not to stay LOL :eek:

Possibly, but I was refering to the engineering aspect of it more than the actual manpower it took. but yes, there had to be alot of folks building it that really didn't wanna be doin' all that hard labor :nodding:
