Advanced ancestors

The other day me and my colleagues were having an interesting talk. We were discussing about the Egyptian pyramids and how perfect they were. I was watching this show on the History Channel a few months back which discussed how aliens might have helped build the pyramids. The pyramids are actually aligned based on stars or some zodiac (I am not sure which one though), but the mysterious part is they are not even off by an inch. How could the Egyptians build something so perfect with tools that were available during those times. Those stone slabs must be weight tonnes. How did they carry those at such an height? Did they have cranes? So one of my colleagues said that may be the technology they had in those times was far more advanced than what we have today. And then something must have happened and would have wiped the entire civilization away, taking away all the tools and techniques along with it. Thus we start at the very beginning. This sort of makes sense, but what really struck me were the following arguments by other colleagues. They were like during the time of Mahabharata, they had wireless technology and test tube babies. The backed it up by saying how could Sanjay (chariot rider for king Dhritrashtra) could tell him what happened in the battlefield of Kurukshetra without even being anywhere near it. The test tube babies were explained by the fact that Gandhari, wife of the King Dhritrashtra, had 100 children which came all at once. So I was a little stumped and this has raised this question in my mind. Could our ancestors be so much more advanced than what we are today? Does everything really get wiped out? When will we get wiped out?

  1. Interesting topic there Akshay…Well I have never thought of how those ppl must have biult the pyramids but i surely doubt the presence of aliens here…….all I want is to visit Egypt someday…*dreaming*Nothing to say on the Mahabharata topic of discussion…as I myself have very lil knowledge of the Hindu epics….When will we get wiped out?……..thats a really scary question…its giving me the creeps….nah nah..I still have a loooong way to go….

  2. Coincidently, I saw the documentary about Pyramids on same topic as well. The Pyramids were built in 20 years but with the kind of machines they had, they could only have been built in 20 years if they put one slab every 1.5 minutes for 20 years straight, which is close to impossible even by today’s standard. I think people at that time had technology and time on their hands to make use of it. I have heard about the stories from Mahabharta but even Leonardo designed a plane years before the invention of car…

  3. u neva know…even the mummies of ancient Egypt r a true phenomenon.**Could our ancestors be so much more advanced than what we are today?yes they could have been. And I guess even if it’s not greater technology, our ancestors sure knew how to LIVE.Keshi.

  4. ohhh Mahabharatha is “THE” epic that is supposed to have the mention of anything, anyone that can be seen/felt/thought of/touched/heard etc etc by humans 🙂 ….. chk out if this helps…….and ya no doubts our ancestors were a lot more advanced spiritually mentally physically intellectually……i m quite impressed by ur frds…seem quite knowledgeable 😛 😀
