The mysterious Pyramids
Pyramids appear almost at every ancient civilization that existed in the past. Of course when we say pyramid we think at the ancient Egyptians, but they were not the only ones who had pyramids. These constructions have always some connection with religion or with a kind of order created by them. Always pyramids are stone constructions, are enormous, and are made to hold something sacred, or something that other people should not see, itís like some sort of a box, of a container for something. The pyramids meaning or why this type of structure has been chosen isnít yet very clear for those who study them.
these giant constructions have caught the attention of man in
Another two cultures that built pyramids and considered them to be very important were the Aztecs and the Mayans. These two similar cultures used also these constructions, at a smaller scale than the Egyptians, but at the same importance. The only main thing that is different is that these cultures used the pyramids not only to bury their kings, but also as temples. Here the explanation is, maybe, simpler. The sun and his power attracted these two civilizations. The main god was the Sun God, and it was very important to them to be as near to the sun as possible, so they build these pyramids, and on top there were altars, at which priests worshiped the Sun God. What is strange is that archaeologists found a pyramid built on top of another. In the smaller pyramid they found the truth of what was thought to be a peaceful culture: proof of human sacrifice in honor of the gods or to calm them. On the walls of the smaller pyramid were found pictures describing the ritual of those sacrifices. Another important aspect of the pyramids was that they were used in a giant calendar, which was capable to indicate the month or day of the year. The Aztecs made these calendars by observing the position of the sun at some precise dates. And so their fascination of the sun turned in mathematics, and exact calculation, and the strange thing is that they were right, even now you can precisely tell the day, or the month of year if you know where to look. It is amazing how this civilization, and other ones, succeeded in telling the date, or in making very precise calculations, which now are done with many instruments and complicated formulas. So there is another culture where the pyramid plays an important role.
next culture that Iím going to talk about is the ancient
course that pyramids appear at other civilizations but I have chosen these
three because they are situated a great distance from one to another in space,
and there is even a difference in time between them. The first culture developed
in Africa, the second in what will be Central America and the third in
I would like to finish by saying that it is possible that we only imagine that pyramids must have another meaning or that they hide some secrets or some secret power that the ancients used. It could be as simple as a coincidence, but personally I donít believe this, it would be a too big coincidence, and I like the mystery that is created by these constructions, and the fact that nobody, yet, can fully understand them.
