they were far more advanced than we are now...yet how could one prove this?
I don't think you can prove it. What is left besides very few remnants of ancient architecture, scripts, artifacts and then some? Even those some of
these depict marvelous ingenuity, some of which we cannot accomplish to this day, they still do not serve as proof of an intellectually superior
society. I suppose superior is not the word, i would say more spiritually 'open'. Maybe this openness was the key to their ability to understand and
who knows about how many things they were wrong about aswell, lets not forget, they weren't perfect.
Even if it can't be proven, its still fun to investigate.
I think your right that it can't be proven, for the most part. How can we prove that which we have yet to discover? Clues for an advanced knowledge
could be right in front of us and we would not know it. Once we discover a new part of science then the clues become obvious and therefore it is
considered nothing new, this can go on for a long time.
Here is a very interesting article about the
Ancient Astronomers of
that doesn't seem to get much attention. How much did they know?
While all of this is extraordinary, Brophy’s conclusions about the other nearby megalithic formation are mind-numbing. Brophy thinks this other
construction may be a star map, the creation of which required a knowledge of astronomy that rivaled and may even have surpassed our own. Brophy’s
conclusions are highly controversial, but his work deserves close attention, because if he is correct we have barely begun to understand where we came
What we can prove is that they knew more than we did in our recent past. After this has happened over and over again with new scientific understanding
it becomes clear to me that they did know much more than we do now. I think we can use these ancient myths to find our own "City of Troy", if you
know what I mean.
Personally I have done this from an astronomical point of view and the ancients, especially the Maya, have helped me to understand orbital mechanics
of the planets. I have read some stuff about the Electric Universe theory and I thought it was OK but when I started connecting this theory to the
myths it all opened up for me. The unity in myth is more than just a connection amongst the ancient civilizations around the world, there is also a
connection to modern civilizations.
It is from the legends about the gods scaring the Earth and other planets with their lightning weapons and the myths from possible eyewitnesses that I
started to see this as a natural geological form of erosion. Electrical energy scaring the landscapes of Earth, our Moon and Mars as described by
those that saw it happen and using this to look for evidence in order to prove it, searching for my own 'city of Troy'. What I have found is a ton
of evidence in favor of an Electric Universe theory that also corroborates these myths. This has really peaked my interest.

I was thinking something like this in a different way. The plasma energy within our body is our consciousness, this is who and what we are. Perhaps an
electrical interaction with celestial bodies altered everyone's consciousness slightly and this caused a sort of collective amnesia. If such a
phenomena could cause us to forget thus reducing our awareness and understanding then it is logical to assume that all of what was lost can be
restored. I find this thought very intriguing!
I read something a while back about the Great Wheel (Zodiac) and a precessional motion (the Great Year) by Sri Yukteswar Giri. This cycle, similar to
precession of the equinoxes, is 24,000 years long in which the Earth moves through the four ages like the hours on a clock. 12 was the middle of the
Golden age which descended through Silver, Bronze and into Iron as the hours advanced up until 6 o'clock. From this point the motions are ascending
in reverse order back to 12 again (Golden age), this takes 24,000 years to complete.
Sri Yukteswar wrote "The Holy Science" in 1894. In the introduction, he wrote:
"The purpose of this book is to show as clearly as possible that there is an essential unity in all religions; that there is no difference in the
truths inculcated by the various faiths; that there is but one method by which the world, both external and internal, has evolved; and that there is
but one Goal admitted by all scriptures."
