my question - for all these " ancient electricity" claims - what did they use electricity for ?????????????


Egyptians were though to gold plate items. That would require a battery, a couple of electrodes and clay pots for insulation. It is documented that the Ancient Egyptians used electric eels to help alleviate the symptoms of epilepsy. They also knew how to make glass and basic metallurgy with metals like gold and mercury. This could explain the mystery of the Baghdad Battery. Those jars could been used to hold mercury and coupled with an electric eel.

In the real world, there is the Electric Surface Potential. The ionosphere has a high voltage potential difference created by thunderstorms. At the surface the potential is considered to be zero for practical uses (design of electrical equipment and telephone exchanges. Having something "earthed" is a standard safety feature along with circuit breakers.

Depending on weather conditions, static electricity can build up and start to discharge through metal objects away from the surface of the ground (St. Elmo's Fire). Many amazing photographs and sketches of wooden ships with steel masts with sparks shooting off.

Tesla thought he could use the atmosphere as a means of power distribution. Use a Tesla coil system to create a high potential difference using AC current. Then jars of mercury vapor could be used to rectify any alternating current into direct current. These were actually used as high voltage diode rectifiers for trams and industrial factories that only had access to AC current.

but it was something diferrent! nowdays technology works in the base of mundane power sources,wires and wifi the ancients used only spires , domes and the air


To do what? Where are the microwave ovens and electric drills (both metaphors, ok?) The point is that we don't have the objects that were powered by this system. All we have are stone buildings. Pretty impressive stone buildings, but nothing else. And, for that matter, all we have are some towers. There is no system. And there is nothing that says these towers were actually part of a system. They could be just towers. The spires on the tops of churches, for example, are just spires. They were never meant to be used as part of a power system. It's like you are attempting to "connect the dots" without even proving that you have a dot. You need more than that to develop a theory. Ideally, you need a working prototype. So where's the beef?

I have no doubt there was some sort of civilization in ancient times and that the Great Pyramid is from that time. One of the big objections to that idea was that there was nothing else like it, but now we have Gobleki Tepi. We have clear evidence of a comet strike, both geological evidence and fossil evidence. We have Plato's story and worldwide mythology. Evidence keeps turning up all the time so it's not just a single pyramid any more. But Gobleki Tepi was deliberately buried, and when it was uncovered, all we have are stone buildings and some interesting carvings. Still no evidence that is not just stone. But at least the theory has quite a few disparate parts that are beginning to make sense.

Or obelisks are simply phallic symbols of fertility.

Nothing was explained. What building that was built can we not build today, still waiting for that to be explained.

We're still not quite sure who built Gobekle Tepe (sp?) or who buried it.

OP is talking about 19th century Europe. Please try again. He is saying super advanced technology was in use by europe and then lost in the 1800s. he talks about buildings in europe built in the 1600s 1700s that cant be built today because our technology isn't good enough.

In short, it's nonsense.

Your link explains what it is, and it has nothing to do with electricity.


"The Egyptians believed that before anything else existed there was a vast primordial sea of nothingness.

"They believed that the first thing to emerge from this sea was a lotus flower.

"It was believed that lotus flower then gave birth to the first God who was often associated with the sun.

"This relief was done after the God Atum was merged with the sun God Ra and thus became Atum-Re.

"Atum the God who created everything else after this is actually represented as a snake.

"And yes it is a snake in these reliefs not light bulb filaments, you can actually see the eyes and other elements of a snake if you look closely."

Coupled with this the Ancient Alien conspiracists don't seem to explain what happened to the electricity and why it had to later be rediscovered.

we can recreate them, we just cant build them at the speed the ancients built them


And what speed was that? Please cite sources.

So giving Pyramids capstones and some found with mercury underneath them.....Pyramids were power plants?

Makes zero sense for buildings created in the 1600s to have spires to collect electricity to electroplate wen electroplating was not done there.

In my hometown we have buildings from the 1600s, why did this magic technology not come to America?

And debunked. The second I saw that AA episode I thought it was a snake coming out of a flower, which made no sense and I did not get the light ray part, but it's what it looked like. After researching it, it made sense.

Still waiting for you to name these magic buildings we either can't build or could not build as fast as they did it. Then you can show me the advanced machinery they used to do it!

the "fun police" (if you know who i am talking about) destroyed all the conspicious structures
however they dint account for the appearence of the internet, wich made old pictures and engravings avaliable to the masses, and the ruse fell

the theory states that many structures had multiple functions, so an church cross also worked as an power spire too

According to Egyptologists, the great pyramid was built in ~20 years...
