Ancient Egypt - lost technologies - lathe turned stone

Ancient Egyptian Stone Technology is a site dedicated to showcasing several examples of Lost Technology from the Very Early Egyptian Empire, or possibly BEFORE. Lathe Turned Stone as hard as granite and friable as schist. Tube Drilled holes through stone blocks and Stone Saws for creating multi-tonne slabs of rock and limestone...

Here's a great artistic example, a perfectly balanced granite bowl...


At least one piece is so flawlessly turned that the entire bowl (about 9" in diameter, fully hollowed out including an undercut of the 3in opening in the top) balances perfectly (the top rests horizontally when the bowl is placed on a glass shelf) on a round tipped bottom no bigger than the size and shape of the tip of a hen's egg !

This requires that the entire bowl have a symmetrical wall thickness without any substantial error! (With a base area so tiny - less than .15 " sq - any asymmetry in a material as dense as granite would produce a lean in the balance of the finished piece.) This kind of skill will raise the eyebrows of any machinist. To produce such a piece in clay would be very impressive. In granite it is incredible.

EDITORIAL COMMENT: these amazingly engineered art pieces and drilling/sawing tools don't even have to have been made by the Very Early Egyptian Empire. Maybe they were IMPORTS from some other location contemporaneous with or before such a time... ancient wares traded via international waters from a technologically advanced people; heirlooms of a Race of Humans who longer exist?

That no trace of the tools used for these artistic/architectural purposes has been found is odd, to say the least. Maybe the craftsmen were freelancers who were drafted into Egypt to do the work, then took their tools away with them? An artisan's tools being forged from sacred magick, etc.


THE WORLD USED TO BE A VERY DIFFERENT PLACE: this is my follow-up editorial where it's now time to introduce you to the work of Ancient Artefact/Technology Research, Klaus Dona. I did a piece on his work years ago when Project Camelot interviewed him, but this is a much more recent presentation he gave. The basic idea of all this is pre-12,000 BC, a great world-wide highly-advanced (or at least highly creative) human culture seems to have existed on this Free Planet. Prepare to be astonished...

Wallace Thornhill - The A-Z of Electric Universe - forthcoming new book...

eleven years ago, (American mythologist) David Talbott and (Australian scientist) Wallace Thornhill brought out their seminal and eponymous book on the Electric Universe.

The thing about Wal and David's co-authored EU-book is it drew together mythology and science in a totally unique way that (iff valid-ified) will TOTALLY REWRITE how Science looks at fundamental issues like The Age of the Solar System, how it was formed, and what our Alien Sky might have looked like to early man - with illustrations peppered throughout written/carved history to back it up.
I just got word from Wal that (while this 2007-published book won't be updated for a more Electric Universe-friendly audience/academic community) he is working on a new book he's tentatively titled THE A-Z OF ELECTRIC UNIVERSE.

Excited as me? Not even possible, my friend....

Electric Universe - charge exchange reaction - outer planets of the solar system

Prior to starting today's blog, I'd like to note that, "Iff electric boundary layers in plasma sheaths of these star-forming Birkeland Currents actually exist," then it safely demonstrates how and where planets orbit their star. Plasma sheath layers = orbits, and should become more off-plane as the outer planets are allowed to orbit a 'fatter' orbit potential in the solar polar vector.

Q: can large electric fields power Jupiter's super-massive auroras?



...of the seven episodes out of a planned 'ten reasons the universe is electric' this might be the most important one yet... it really makes the case for An Electric Universe that modern science is SIMPLY IGNORING... at the moment.

Time to watch, again or for the first time,  David Talbott's 2013 lecture Exposing the Myths of Settled Science.

art - mike philbin - black, black, paint it black...

yeah, I know, "Black's the new black," all over again. Swings and roundabouts. Once more round the sun, dear art friends.

But here's what started it.


And here's the most recent Black'd Work, with the addition of metallic silver conversing with metallic gold.
