The star-matter-bound oxygen and the 'spatial' hydrogen form the vast stores out of which the Cosmic Ice is generated and its supplies repleted". The Akapana is an approximately cross-shaped pyramidal structure that is m wide, m broad at its maximum, and
The Kalasasaya is a large courtyard more than feet long, outlined by a high gateway. It does not look very interesting when looking at it because of the erosion. Many of them are now underwater, some have been found in recent decades, like Yonaguni in Japan. These architectural examples, as well as the recently discovered Akapana Gate, have a unique detail and demonstrate high skill in stone-cutting.
This moat, some believe, was to create the image of a sacred island. Largely relating to the title, Thomas goes on to discuss the process by which the Biblical book Genesis was corrupt and original meaning lost. A ring of such blocks formed, which we now call the Milky Way, as well as a number of solar systems among which was our own, but with many more planets than currently exist.

They could calculate squares and hence, square roots. But then, I wondered, it must have been very tough in the fall to carry the harvest 2 to feet down to the valley floor. They were able to draw absolutely straight lines and exact right angles, but no mathematical instruments have yet been found.
Because of the basin-like geography of the area the flood waters that became Lake Titicaca could not run off and have only gradually evaporated over the centuries.
This calendar sculpture, though it undoubtedly depicts a "solar year," cannot however be made to fit into the solar year as we divide it at present. Allen and Professor Schindler-Bellamy and their helpers many years of hard work to puzzle out the Tiahuanaco system of notation and its symbology, and to make the necessary calculations before the age of computers.
The lintel is carved with 48 squares surrounding a central figure. The site is at an altitude of 13, feet, which places it some feet above the present level of Lake Titicaca.
The accuracy and precision of the idol's workmanship stands in stark contrast to the primitive building in which it resides. It is interesting to observe the archaeological excavation work, which is under way at the site.

The fragments shattered down on earth; the oceans, released from the satellite's gravity, flowed back toward the continents, exposing tropical lands and submerging polar territories.
Chan Powers Thomas in the U. At the area called Puma Punku, which is about 1 mile distant from the principal part of the ruins, the gigantic stones are bluish-gray in color and appear to have been "machined," and they have a metallic ring when tapped by a rock.

The thirty little icons or messengers of time seen on the Sun Gate did not symbolise days, but symbolised the thirty year period at the Price: $ This page looks at some published dimensions of buildings and courtyards at Tiwanaku and analyses them in terms of "Egyptian" and "Sumerian" cubits.
