Ancient Aliens s12e04 Episode Script

The Alien Architects

This wall exists here, at one of the most inaccessible places.
These types of walls, they exist all over the world.
The building style is not similar, it is identical.
Were alien structures built on Earth as part of a master plan? That these temples actually act as batteries.
They store energy and they also allow the energy to expand at certain times during the day.
Could they reveal an extraterrestrial connection? Ancient cultures around the world connected their temples to each other almost like a master circuit board.
And did they serve a larger purpose, one that reaches beyond Earth? They're somehow looking at the Earth from space and seeing how these structures would fit around the globe.
Who could be doing this, except for extraterrestrials? Siem Reap, Northwest Cambodia.
Just outside the magnificent ruins of Angkor Wat stands an ancient pyramid temple known as Baksei Chamkrong.
While it is a solid rock structure, and therefore cannot be carbon dated, mainstream archaeologists suggest that it was constructed in the tenth century AD.
9,000 miles away, in the Petén Basin of Guatemala, lay the ruins of the Mayan city of Tikal.
Amongst the long-abandoned structures is a Temple of the Great Jaguar, which is believed to date back to the eighth century AD.
When you see pictures of these two pyramids on two different continents, they're virtually identical.
It's as if the same architect had designed both of these.
Although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid in Guatemala, the similarities between the specific design features are uncanny.
Both have an unusually steep slope angle that we don't see in other pyramids, they both have a stepped formation.
There's a stairwell going up the middle, there's a domed area on the top, there's a little door that goes in and there's interior structure that looks the same, as well.
You have the civilization in Cambodia and the civilization in Mesoamerica.
There are so many parallels, it's incredible.
It's unbelievable that scholars haven't, until now, recognized those parallels.
Is it possible that they were working off the same blueprint? And if so, where did that blueprint come from? Could it be that these seemingly unrelated sites, located thousands of miles apart, share a common architect? Cambodian lore attributes the building of Angkor to Preah Pisnokar, a being of half-human, half-divine origin.
Preah Pisnokar is the son of the moon goddess and a mortal.
One day, she takes him up to Heaven, where he meets the great high god Indra, who decides that the boy is to be given special schooling.
At Indra's Heaven, he was given instructions.
Instructions about mathematics, engineering, architecture, all these different scientific disciplines.
One very provocative way of looking at this story is that Indra's Heaven is not just a place in the stars, that it's actually a spacecraft.
And that Preah Pisnokar was instructed by extraterrestrial beings on this craft in the art of temple making.
According to ancient astronaut theorists, an interesting parallel exists between the Mayan and Cambodian stories.
In the Maya manuscripts, the god Kukulkan is responsible for their temple architecture.
He was also credited with educating humans on mathematics, engineering and science, the same teachings attributed to Pisnokar.
Kukulkan is supposed to have descended from a star.
He's represented as the feathered serpent, but also he's represented, he's a big being with the helmet, a helmet has rays on it, and he's sitting on a half-open sort of egg.
He was the teacher, according to Central American mythology.
He definitely is an extraterrestrial.
Could these two otherworldly architects be one and the same? And if so, does further evidence of a master builder exist in other parts of the world as well? In Mesoamerica, we have the gods associated with the construction of the pyramids over there.
This reflects the same kind of entity that the Mesopotamians reported, that the Egyptians reported as being the architect that designed the cities, that designed these structures.
So you have the same pattern and the same claim happening over and over again over a span of at least 7,000 years, where it's the same type of god, planning and directing the construction of these types of similar buildings.
We seem to be talking about the same architect that seems to be crossing different continents at different times.
It's interesting that when you start looking at all of these structures covering many thousands of years, you begin to see that there's a relationship.
Pyramids are found by the hundreds in nearly every region of the world, including Central America, Mesopotamia, Egypt, China and even Antarctica.
And many cultures' most sacred structures appear remarkably alike.
It is striking that you can travel around the planet and you can find structures that are similar in nature.
For example, in China, the Xi'an Altar of Heaven, or the stone circle above Saksaywaman in Peru.
All over the planet, you see tall, megalithic architecture.
You see cyclopean stone structures, as well.
A bunch of primitive people somehow get motivated all over the world to haul around these gigantic blocks of stone that could be 20 tons, 100 tons.
And everybody around the world seemed to be doing the same thing.
There is a kind of a master blueprint that we see in the architecture, and it's not in just one or two or three civilizations, it's in all the civilizations.
China, India, South America, it's there.
Archeologists tell us, "Well, there was no connection at those times.
" There had to be something, that's too much of a coincidence.
So there we get the idea that it's more of a network than any single structure.
And they sort of feed of ch other.
Are the curious parallels between structures seen throughout the world truly random, or could they be interconnected? And if so, was it important not just that the temples were built, but exactly how they were constructed? Cusco, Peru.
The remnants of the Coricancha, or Temple of the Sun, are considered a marvel of Incan architecture.
Modern engineers say the precision of the stonework rivals that being produced today with advanced machining.
But incredibly, the Inca weren't the only ancient people to achieve such building proficiency.
6,500 miles away in Giza, Egypt, we see the same signature building techniques at the Valley Temple next to the Sphinx.
Let's say you stand in front of the Sphinx temple in Egypt and you look at the stone masonry there.
And then you had the capability of closing your eyes and the next moment you're at the Coricancha temple in Cusco.
Well, if you wouldn't know where you are, you couldn't tell the difference between the two, because the engineering styles of those two temples are very similar.
What you find is that the blocks are fitted together so tightly What makes these structures so impressive is not only their design, but also the fact that they were built with megalithic stones.
Some of these massive blocks are so large that even engineers today have no idea how they were put in place.
The limestone blocks at the Valley Temple are estimated to weigh upwards of 200 tons each.
And many of these stones had to be lifted and placed up to 40 feet aboveground, or the height of a four-story building.
However, this was not merely accomplished at these two sites.
Across the globe, ancient cultures chose, time and time again, to build with similar awe-inspiring blocks fitted together with minimal clearance between adjacent stones and no use of mortar.
Even more confounding is the fact that many of these megalithic constructions were built in impractical locations, often thousands of feet above sea level.
Santorini, Greece.
Researcher and editor Giorgio Tsoukalos traveled to the ancient site of Thera on the island's highest peak.
The megalithic architecture found here dates back to at least the ninth century BC.
This wall exists here, at one of the most inaccessible places.
In order to get here, you take a car, you go up these harrowing switchback roads and then, you're on foot for at least 45 minutes.
And so the idea that is given that this was just built on a whim, to me, seems insane.
There had to have been a reason why this is here.
The blocks are huge.
There is one block right here that's at least six feet long and one here, seven feet long, and they're about 32 inches thick, so we're talking blocks of stone that are as big as people, weighing about a ton or more.
And we have 12 levels of stone blocks.
Twelve! This was placed here deliberately.
This is not coincidence.
Somebody at the quarry said, "We need a stone of this particular size, that fits right here.
" And walls like this not only exist in Greece, but in Italy, in Spain, in South America, and also in Egypt.
So, the building style is not similar, it is identical.
The use of such enormous blocks is the main reason many of these ancient structures, like the walls at Thera, have survived until today.
But why was it so important that they remain standing thousands of years into the future? There was an architect here who had complete understanding of stone, of masonry, and that you can do extraordinary things with it that will last a lifetime and forever.
Not only did they actually build things which were guaranteed to last, often they were working with unusual angles.
And they're so tightly fitted that earthquakes find it very difficult to break them apart.
In fact, they are earthquake-proof.
Ancient astronaut theorists point out that other common design elements were incorporated in structures throughout the world to ensure their longevity, including the widespread use of metal braces inserted into keystone cuts to reinforce ancient constructions.
This unusual way of fitting large stones together is found in ancient Egypt, it's found in ancient Ethiopia.
It is found in India and Greece and in Italy.
It is found at Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
It's found at the Champa sites in Vietnam, and we find it in Peru at Ollantaytambo and at Cusco, and we see it also at Tiwanaku and Puma Punku in Bolivia.
The two stones essentially have a channel dug in between them, and there's a certain slot into which is poured molten metal.
Now, this brings up all kinds of questions because, one, alloys were not supposed to have been discovered until about 2500 BC.
The fact that these stones go back to at least 13,000 BC creates a huge problem.
We have here, again, shared technology crossing a huge span of time in order to make sure that the stones never, ever fall apart.
People working on different sides of the world trying to build similar things are not necessarily going to think of the same way to build it in certain respects.
The similarities in the way some of the stones were cut, the keystone, other factors that people wouldn't necessarily think of, for them to show up, and for them to be used to give greater duration to these structures way beyond any reasonable expectation that the people living then were gonna continue to use these, tells us that there's somebody maybe with a longer time span was behind the design of these things.
Whoever was be the design wanted these things to last a really long time.
Who were the teachers of these engineering styles? The only conclusion there is, is that aliens had a hand in these creations a long time ago.
They're all human-made, but with the assistance or the technology provided by extraterrestrials.
If ancient structures found all over the world were built to outlast the beings that constructed them, is it possible that they were meant to serve a greater purpose, one not known to the builders themselves, but only to those who instructed them? Giza Plateau, Egypt.
The Great Pyramid is arguably the most enigmatic structure on the face of the Earth.
It is the only surviving Wonder of the ancient world, and has inspired endless speculation as to how it was built and what purpose it served.
Ever since the first studies of the Great Pyramid in Egypt have been made, researchers have been amazed at the mathematical knowledge that is encoded into the Great Pyramid, the measurements that are used in it.
Even the placement of the Great Pyramid has aroused great interest among Egyptologists.
The Great Pyramid is aligned to within 3/60ths of a degree of north, a more accurate alignment than any other structure on Earth.
When you look at the Great Pyramid's alignment, it's aligned very, very close to true north.
Even more interesting is to think about tracking back in time, because the Earth's axis has been shifting slowly.
It's what we call "precessis.
" And so, if there's been a shift in that alignment, it could be that it was even more accurately aligned to north in the past when they built it.
The Great Pyramid is not only perfectly aligned to the cardinal points, its placement on the Earth is seemingly intentional as well.
If you pass a great circle from the Great Pyramid through Since the first accurate survey of the Great Pyramid in 1925, mathematicians and researchers have discovered even more profound connections relating to geodetic information, or information pertaining to the measurement and representation of the Earth, encoded in its design.
The Great Pyramid was built with a level of technological sophistication far in excess of anything that we have today.
They don't use the inch as we normally have it in the English system; it's the cubit.
And what's interesting about the cubit is that it is exactly 1/25 millionth of the polar diameter of the earth, meaning the distance from the North Pole to the South Pole of the Earth.
Chop it up into 25 million pieces, there's a royal cubit.
It's perfect.
If you actually take the length of the Great Pyramid at its mean Socket level, which is the corners of the actual building, it translates into 365.
24 pyramid cubits, which just happens to be the Earth year, right down to a quarter day.
The measurements of the length and width of the perimeter of the Great Pyramid correspond to an exact fraction of the both the latitude and longitude measurements at the equator.
Scaled up, this means the Great Pyramid directly corresponds to the circumference of the equator, as well as the measurement from the Equator to the Pole, making it a scale model of the Northern Hemisphere.
Recently, using satellite technology, researchers have realized yet another advanced formula encoded in the design.
If you take the location of the Great Pyramid as a coordinate, this number sequence of this coordinate matches exactly the speed of light traveling through space, measured in meters per second.
This is amazing stuff.
When you consider the vast amount of information about the Earth that's encoded into the Great Pyramid, you can't just dismiss all of this as pure coincidence.
Although the Great Pyramid at Giza offers an astounding example of encoded information, other sites around the world, such as the Mesoamerican pyramids and the ziggurats of Mesopotamia, have also been found to be aligned to exact cardinal points, and embody mathematical concepts.
These buildings were built under divine guidance.
This is a mark of the gods.
They put certain things in these buildings to let us know they are not entirely of human origin.
They represent something larger than we are.
The builders wanted to make sure that a future generation would know that there's a discrepancy in knowledge.
And what I'm suggesting is that all these ancient structures are calling cards left by extraterrestrials.
Ancient astronaut theorists suggest that evidence of extraterrestrial intervention in the construction and placement of these incredible structures can also be found by examining their alignments with the stars.
If I wanted to leave behind a piece of evidence that suggests where I'm from, one way, for example, is by creating monuments that are in the shape of constellations.
In ancient Egypt, the three pyramids are aligned with the constellation of Orion's belt.
The pyramids are not the only monuments that have this particular configuration.
The ancient site of Teotihuacan, in Mexico, also contains three pyramids that are oriented to match up with the belt stars of Orion.
And other sites throughout the world have been found to have similar astronomical alignments.
Were ancient structures, and even entire complexes, purposely encoded with advanced principles so that future generations would recognize an otherworldly influence? Ancient astronaut theorists say yes, but suggest an even more profound purpose might be revealed by examining these structures from an extraterrestrial perspective.
Saint-Jean-de-Matha, Quebec, Canada.
May, 2016.
After extensively studying the manuscripts of the ancient Mayan civilization that reached its peak in 1000 AD, 15-year-old student William Gadoury stumbles across something astonishing.
The star diagrams contained in the documents perfectly correlate with the layout of existing Mayan cities.
Gadoury discovered that there were 22 star maps in the texts that lined up with the cities very nicely 117 different cities.
But there was a 23rd map, in which one of the cities did not exist on the map.
Now, he was really concerned about this because he felt, wait a minute, this is like a treasure map, and "X" marks the spot.
Gadoury found it odd that only one star on the maps did not match up with a Mayan city, and concluded that perhaps it really did exist, but had not yet been discovered.
With the assistance of the Canadian Space Agency and Dr.
Armand Larocque, a remote-sensing specialist from the University of New Brunswick, Gadoury was able to use satellite imagery to pinpoint the exact coordinates where the city should be.
What they see is absolutely mind-blowing.
There it is, a perfect square object.
It's clearly angular, it's clearly geometric.
It has symmetrical proportions on both sides.
This square, according to Dr.
Armand Larocque himself, could actually be the foundation of a pyramid.
Although archaeologists have yet to visit the site, the lost city was given the name K'aak Chi, or "Mouth of Fire.
" Gadoury's discovery would seem to confirm that the Maya precisely placed their cities in a way that perfectly mirrored the stars above An astonishing accomplishment considering that the territory they occupied spans over 75,000 square miles.
We have the entirety of all Mayan civilization, every one of those cities, perfectly gridded out, mathematical precision with star maps.
How could a primitive culture have done this? Ancient astronaut theorists say the Maya were told where to build their cities by extraterrestrial visitors, and suggest that this occurred with other civilizations throughout the world.
But it was not only the stars that determined the placement of important sites.
Many were also aligned with the very energy of the Earth itself.
Herefordshire, England, 1921.
Alfred Watkins, a landscape photographer, makes a curious discovery.
Many of the prehistoric standing stones, mounds, forts, and earthworks in the area fall directly in a straight line extending for several miles.
He coins the term "ley lines" to describe these alignments, which he later finds throughout England and France.
These so-called ley lines actually cross over all of the ancient stone structures, like Stonehenge or Avebury.
Something is going on here in which this idea of these lines has some relevance.
We see that the Templars borrowed this same science of grid lines during the Crusades, and then started to build all of the cathedrals throughout Europe on these so-called ley lines.
Ancient cultures had this understanding that the world has lines of power to it.
The ancient cultures understood that these lines of power were almost like sources of energy, and by building structures along these sources of energy, they could almost tap its power.
In 1992, after 30 years of visiting the megalithic standing stones in the Carnac region of France and hearing stories about energetic ley lines, thermodynamics engineer Pierre Mereaux sets out to discover if there is any truth to the theory.
Mereaux actually went to Carnac in France, where there's at least 80,000 standing stones.
And, as a skeptic, he actually measured the energy of these stones and found that these stones actually act as batteries, as coils, as alternators.
They store energy, and they also allow the energy to expand at certain times during the day, demonstrating that the stones are built exactly where they need to be to harness a specific energy.
If extraterrestrials instructed our ancestors on where to build their most important structures, as ancient astronaut theorists suggest, was it to exploit the power of the site? Perhaps further clues can be found by examining what many consider to be the holiest and most contentious site on the planet.
Chichen Itza, Mexico.
August, 2015.
A sinkhole is discovered under the 1,000-year-old El Castillo temple.
Scientists, worried about the stability of the pyramid, begin extensive examinations of the site.
While investigating, they discovered two nested structures contained within the confines of the pyramid.
The pyramid at Chichen Itza is actually not one pyramid, but three.
These are built like Russian dolls.
They keep repeating the same design feature, the same construction method, the same unit of measure over time.
So obviously, something worked thousands of years ago and they kept repeating it again, and again, and again like a cookie cutter process.
It is a pyramid that's inside of another pyramid.
We also see this at the Great Pyramid of Cholula, one of the largest pyramids in the world, just outside of Mexico City.
Also, we see this at Djoser's Pyramid in Saqqara in Egypt.
So ancient peoples were, for some reason, rebuilding over and over again these ancient structures.
Because they apparently were in a location that was so important.
There's something special about that place.
Throughout the world, evidence of sacred sites that have transcended various cultures and religious traditions can be found.
The Temple Mount is considered holy to all the world religions.
The Temple of Solomon was built.
Later, Christianity built their own churches upon it.
This is where the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, had a vision wherein which he ascended to heaven.
And it was upon this vision that proclaimed the Temple Mount to be sacred to Islam.
But it was considered sacred before the ancient Israelites even came into the land of Israel.
We read in the Bible about Abraham meeting a very strange priest by the name of Melchizedek, who was to have had his own temple there.
So there was a very ancient connection to this specific place.
In Lebanon, there is the temple to Baalbek.
Later, under Greek control they built a different structure on the same foundation stone, and called the area Heliopolis.
There are cathedrals throughout the world that had pre-Christian foundations.
We have it all over the world, which means that a sacred site has a power of its own that is larger or older or longer lasting than any particular tradition.
The thing is, the location is what's sacred.
Could it be that, much like the locations of the Mayan cities that are mapped out based on a cosmic grid and the ley lines in England, these worldwide sacred sites also connect to a larger blueprint? The origins of the idea of a world grid can be traced back to ancient Greece.
Philosophers like Plato were very adamant that the ancient sacred places were specially positioned along the face of the Earth in a very deliberate way, and they conformed to what was called a world grid.
The temples were not placed haphazardly.
They actually had a structure and purpose to them.
In the 1960s, researcher Ivan T.
Sanderson plotted out his own planetary grid based on Plato's work.
Other world grid researchers would later build upon his model.
What they identified was that there was a geometric pattern that could be superimposed on the Earth, and that grid point usually started at the Great Pyramid itself.
And they would go out from there in a geometric form.
Russian researchers did a full survey of all of the large stone structures that have ever been found all over the Earth, a total of 3,300 different stone structures.
And they found that every single one of them was built right on one of the lines of this geometric pattern.
On this grid, sites like Stonehenge in England, megaliths in West Africa, the Bermuda Triangle, pyramids in Mexico and in Peru, islands like Easter Island.
The bizarre city of Nan Madol, were also matching this grid.
The specific power spots where we find pyramids and obelisks and other structures, may have not been chosen just by chance.
It could well be that they are part of an integrated whole and their location is highly, highly important.
Some researchers speculate that ancient cultures around the world connected all of their temples to each other, almost like a master circuit board, where one temple connected to another temple, connected to another, added to the power of the structure, added to the power of the line itself.
When we think of the power grid, we think of the energy being transmitted along this grid.
What if there's something else going on here? What if there's something bigger that we're not seeing? What if this world power grid is actually receiving energy from the solar system or from the universe itself? You have to ask yourself, who is it who's overseeing this larger picture of all of these structures on the Earth? They're somehow looking at the Earth from space and seeing how these structures would fit on a large scale around the globe.
Who could be doing this, except for extraterrestrials? If the placement of structures on Earth were specifically plotted to serve an extraterrestrial function, might parts of this system still be online today? And if so, does it serve a purpose beyond Earth? Auckland, New Zealand, 1997.
Retired military and commercial airline pilot Bruce Cathie publishes his book The Energy Grid.
In it, he details his experience observing UFOs during his time working for the New Zealand military.
He noted that these crafts were always following straight lines.
After mapping them, he discovered that they followed a distinctive grid pattern.
Additionally, while flying over some of these zones, he also noticed that various structures were actively being built along the paths.
Bruce Cathie maintained that the American military, starting in World War II, had also figured out this special grid that surrounds the entire planet, and that the military was using certain spots on the Earth to build military bases and other structures.
Cathie suggested that the extraterrestrial craft may have been drawing power off the grid, and that after World War II and the Roswell incident, military personnel around the world had become aware of this UFO connection.
So here we have an ancient grid structure, probably built by extraterrestrials, possibly to power their craft, that's now being reconstructed today by the military.
Could it be that ancient structures throughout the world were designed to function together as part of a massive energy grid? And did the architects intentionally leave behind information for us to find, once we had the technological knowledge to recognize this system? But why? What were the alien architects trying to tell us? Extraterrestrials knew that at some point in our evolution, a technologically advanced society would stumble across all of these ancient sites and see their correlation, thus forcing us to take into consideration that some type of extraterrestrials showed our ancestors where to build these things, not for them, but for us.
The grid itself may, in fact, be a source of unconventional energy that we are not necessarily utilizing with our technology now.
An advanced, intelligent race wanted to leave something behind for us to discover that would give us the clues to a greater level of science than we now understand.
It could be that this master architect sought not only to influence the Earth, but also to connect the Earth to something greater or beyond our imagination.
Perhaps this grid even extends out into the stars, and the world grid of the Earth connects with the grid of other planets as well, and then integrates the Earth into a huge colony, if you will, or integrated circuit throughout the cosmos.
This will be profound for planet Earth, when this grid network is repowered, and we don't know what effect it will ultimately have on our future.
Maybe this will be the time when the extraterrestrials return.
There are those who believe that the discovery of an ancient energy grid will offer a quantum leap in human achievement.
Because by harnessing the energy of the Earth, we will not only advance beyond our planet, but far beyond the stars, and anything we could ever imagine.
