In China on the lake bottom were discovered the ancient pyramids

About 17 people, including researchers from Russia, are carrying out an expedition in the Chinese province of Yunnan in the area of Alpine lake Fuxian Hu (the height of 1750 m above sea level). The aim of the expedition is the search for nearly two-hundred-meter depth strange formations resembling pyramids. From the Chinese side the expedition was organized by the archaeological group 722 Komenskeho University, a diving centre Dive and Disport underwater archaeologist Bao Ling, with Russian divers Leonid Gavrilov and Eugen Spiridonov.

Chinese archaeologists did not have the capability to reach such great depths, and lift out the evidence of human activity. However, according to the information received, pyramidal objects are “only” 50-meter depth.

On April 12 lasted 10 days underwater research expedition was successfully completed. Leonid Gavrilov talked about some of the details of the expedition. Continue reading

Of descriptive geometry

About the pyramids will be discussed later. They play a bright role in the history of the development of imaging techniques.

And again the same circuit: assumptions and discoveries, riddles and discoveries. And the same questions: WHERE? WHEN? HOW?

WHERE? We know now several centers of civilization, where they were built remarkably similar according to the plan of the pyramid — a mysterious building is still giving us new discoveries: Egypt, Sudan, Mexico.

WHEN? Egypt — since 2800 years BC Sudan — 500 years BC Mexico — 100-500 years BC

HOW? The main question for us is how we created the idea of structures? Was there any, as we would say now, the “design documentation”? Who stood by the idea of the monument — “customer” Pharaoh, or his talented the architect, or the whole “design team”? A first outline for a future colossus? Most likely in the sand.
