Saying that it was burned is something, proving it is something different.

He showed a picture of a flower of life wich was burned ( by laser? ) in a obelisk in very thin lines, this could not have been done by a primitive Egyptians 5000 years ago, could it?
I thought so, most people that make claims like that do not provide evidence of what they say, so I guess it's natural that a photo supporting what he says doesn't exist...
Then he said a piece of the obelisk had broken of and the flower of life actually continued within the obelisk.
It was burned all the way through the obelisk.
I have no picture to support this claim but according to the guy, if you go there you can feel and see it for yourselve.
Or they draw it after that piece broke off.
Might be worth mentioning: If you look at the bottom of the flower of life, you will see a piece that seems to be chipped off. It also seems like the flower is indeed still visible further into the obelisk. Could just be my imagination though….
What about the paintings on stones from the stone age? Some are still visible today, you just have to make the paint water resistant.
I dont think this explanation is the right one for a figure drawn in red oker would not last such a long time exposed to the elements.
Also, if the story of the piece wich has broken of the obelisk is correct, it's obvious this figure isn't just drawn.

Looks very cool to me. I am going to look into it a bit more.
Although back in those days they had the "Best toys." Like the "Laser SpiralGraph."

OK. Painted. So how do we explain that such thin lines, created by hand with some ancient paint can survive for XXX years and still be legible in every line? That alone is an incredible feat. But just happenstance? So even that argument, which MUST be the acceptable one, hardly stands since it has been exposed to the elements all of these years. Drawings/paintings in some ancient cave or Egptian tomb is one thing, but exposed to the daily elements? I'll bet DuPont would love to have that formula!

See it this way: do red rocks lose their colour with time? No, they do not, so if you grind some of those rocks (ochre) and use that pigment (along with some binders like egg yoke, that it's extremely good at making durable paint) to make some paint, that paint will never lose it's colour.

They have, but who wants to sell paint that lasts forever?

That depends on the method used, as I said above.
(Most people probably don't know that two colors do not stand up well under the sun. They are silver and red.)
The original flower of life (found on several pillars within "the Osireion" at abydos in Egypt) is incomplete, because it is only the first layer of three (pic1+2).
The complete flower has the other two layers added, making it three dimensional (pic3). If you relax (sit three feet away from the screen) and let the flower slowly draw your eyes out of focus, the flower will open. Try and not focus on any one point, blankly stare, take the flower in as a whole. You may get a headache and itchy eyes, this will quickly disappear. We do not see with our eyes, we see through our eyes. Let your mind focus, don't fight it.
