The Olmec

Sunday January 3, 2010

I updated my file on the Olmec Civilization who are mostly remembered by the giant stone heads (17 found so far), allegedly depicting some of their kings/rulers who wore helmets defining something about them. It would seem they were the first Mesoamerican civilizations, arriving before the Maya. (You know that means their insert was set in motion first).

Evidence shows that they were advanced in astronomy and mathematics - defining the number zero and incorporating it in 'their' Long Count Calendar - before the Maya. They didn't leave behind codices or enigmatic monuments hinting at their origins, as future civilizations would. We again find similar iconography in their art work: birds, fish, cats (jaguars) ... as with other inserts from most ancient civilizations.

The sculpture of the woman shows her with a mirror held near her heart < HREF="chakra.html">chakra chichi she used as a tool of divination providing symbolic access to other realms. Mirror Scrying is found in many ancient cultures.

Aztec burial ritual includes being buried with a mirror. The belief was - the mirror allowed them to see their souls in the afterlife. By the same token, members of the Aztec nobility would have a page or foot servant follow them around holding a black obsidian mirror so they could check themselves out to make sure they looked good.

On the matter of gods ... Remember him?

He's the feathered creation serpent god with a water bucket ... or is it blood and bloodlines? I have seen him posted as Viracocha, Quetzalcoatl, Kukulcan, and other roles played by the same god, but now it would seem his likeness goes to what is considered the Mother Culture of Mesoamerica ... The Olmec.

Could the large Olmec heads represent consciousness?

Were they aliens?

And why do they all look like Teal'c on Stargate SG1?

Indeed ....

Don't be misled by false gods who want to control you.
