The Egyptian hieroglyph that looks like a land speeder out of star wars and a helicopter has been debunked 1,000 times. One pharaoh wrote over the inscription made by another pharaoh, that's all. Here is one site, out of hundreds, that explain it. heiroglyph debunked
If it was a schematic of any kind it would contain some sort of key to show scale, or some way to show proper orientation and depth. Without a scale or proper orientation we are looking at lines in the dirt. I do think that the lines are some kind of message though, great find!
Any math geeks out there? Math in many way's, is the universal language. If aliens or an ancient culture wanted to communicate a complex message, it would make sense that they would utilize math. Has anyone tried imputing the lines into a computer and coming up with some kind of mathematical formula. The line's may be some sort of mathematical message. Since we clearly don't have the whole picture, there may be some benefit to comparing lines of equations that are present from the Lines with commonly known and applied equations we use today. Just like deciphering an ancient language, you would then be able to make educated guesses regarding how to organize the messages. In theory at some point some sort of grammar would present itself. Reducing the lines to math may be the most scientific way of looking at this phenomenon as it is not dependent on subjective aesthetic interpretation. I never made it past calculus, so I'm not sure if what i'm saying holds any water.edit on 15-2-2013 by IndianaJoe because: noneedit on 15-2-2013 by IndianaJoe because: none

Complete with Hamilton jet propulsion.
Nazca lines have - always - been in the back of my mind; ever since I saw 'Chariots of the Gods'.
Erich Von-Daniken, for better or worse .... really did open some eyes.
He opened the bidding. He got us all thinking.
OK, he may have been a little off as he became accustomed to
the limelight, and his being the "resident authority". (that was like drawing a target on your back - much! )
Unfortunately ... it's all speculation.

In light of this wonderfull theoretic journey, there is perhaps another thing that might be of great importance, and that is the animals and the way they are positioned. Maybe they are markers of some sort. Or maybe they offer more clue's/information in relation to their respective "diagrams".
I am well aware that this persuit might end up in a anti-climactic discovery, but what is the use of staying within the boundries of the box, when speculating about this subject? I, for one, and it seems all across the board, am very excited to see this thread go from hypothesis, to photothesis. Specially since I too, before I had even heard of Internet, was infected with the works of Von Daniken.
Can't wait to see where this leads!
