Nazca lines, definition and study. A-Z Index of Cognitio.
The Nazca lines are geoglyphs, lines drawn on the ground, the desert of Nazca, an arid plateau extending for about eighty kilometers between the towns of Nazca and Palpa, southern Peru. More than 13,000 lines form more than 800 drawings. It is believed that geoglyphs have been traced during the bloom of Nazca Civilization, between 300 BC and 500 AC by the population living in the area: the Nazca. Although the lines have been spotted with greater clarity and frequency with the advent of line flights on the area, they are also visible from the surrounding hills, so that from the top of a hill in 1927 Toribio Mejia Xespe identified them with ceremonial paths (seques). Those who made a decisive contribution to the study of the lines of Nazca were the German archaeologist Maria Reiche.
She devoted passionately to the study and restoration of geoglyphs, and she has to discover some that had not been documented before. The Reiche suppose that the lines had an astronomical meaning, identifying the shape of the Monkey with the Big Bear, the Dolphin and the Spider with the Orion Constellation, and so on.
Reiche also claimed that the figures had been created by real technicians and engineers of the time. There are many hypotheses about how the Nazca have drawn lines, ranging from the most plausible to the more imaginative ones. Technically the lines of Nazca are perfect. The mileage lines are drawn with very small deviation angles. The designs are well proportioned, especially if we think about their size. These lines are the testimony of a great knowledge of geometry by the ancient inhabitants of this area. The figures found at Nazca, particularly in the Pampa of San José, are numerous and represent figures of animals, plants, humans, labyrinths and other geometric figures. There are more than thirty geoglyphs found to date in the Nazca Plain. Geometrical designs (hundreds of lines, triangles, and quadrangles) are more numerous than natural ones and occupy large areas.
Quote by Alessandro Brizzi.
“But the lines of Nazca, why were they created? Would the Peruvian people design them for ritual purposes, for astronomical purposes or to communicate with extraterrestrial civilizations?
In 1967 the astrophysicist Gerald Hawkins concluded a study conducted at Nazca, stating that most of the lines do not seem to be connected to astronomical events, actually occurred in the last 5000 years. According to some Peruvian legends, the population would have designed the “great figures” to make themselves seen by God.
One of Nazca’s most curious things is that the lines, though covering many kilometers between hills and valleys, are absolutely and perfectly straight : the drawings are visible only from the top and the extraordinary dimensions, give rise spontaneously to the question: but how did the ancient Peruvians, to make drawings in scale then magnifying them on the ground? Some theories state that the lines of Nazca were created by ancient aliens thousands of years ago.
A new video recorded recently shows a strange object in the shape of a cigar or a “flying saucer” in the evening sky.
The video recorded on June 9, 2018, was accompanied by the message: “Are we watching a UFO on the Nazca Lines?
Trace your conclusions. “According to the description of the author of the video, then uploaded on YouTube by the astroufoperu channel, the images were recorded in the Pampa de Socos in Nazca, Ica, Peru, by the journalist Rafal Mercado of the Peruvian Association of Ufology (APU). Of course, users of social media, have immediately discussed the authenticity of the flying object: someone suggested that it was just a cloud, while a man called “Rocio Peru” claims to have seen “dozens of UFOs” in Nazca. The strange drawings include rough figures of animals, but we can also observe a dancing woman, and even more disconcertingly, we can clearly see a 35-meter “astronaut” representing an unusual figure from another world. Moreover, the “mysterious skeletons” found in a tomb near the Nazca lines, are unusual skeletons, endowed with elongated heads and nicknamed “humanoid beings” by scientists who have studied them: the Russian geneticists have detected in particular a mummy, with the head elongated and three fingers, both in hands and feet.It was discovered in 2017 that the mummy is a humanoid with 23 chromosomes, but its anatomy does not correspond to the terrestrial one. Konstantin Korotkov, a professor at the National University of Research in Russia, said that the structure of the ribs of “Mary” the mummy of Nazca, is completely different from that of a human being. Now scientists are engaged in research to study the internal organs of the mummy. The structure of the mummy ribs is very different from that of a human being. With a keel-shaped upper part, the rib cage consists of a handful of semicircular ribs. Its unusual shape has helped scientists to study the internal organs of the mummy carefully. According to the Morrison and Rostworowski scholars, these lines were designed by the ancient Peruvians who thought that the legendary hero-master Viracocha, also known as Quetzalcoatl, would return to the land. The hieroglyphics would have served him as a point of reference to identify his people. A more curious theory could align with the UFO sighting footage and agree with Erich von Däniken: if the lines had been instead a landing place for the aliens? The lines would be drawn by the landing spaceships. Someone rejected this hypothesis because of the terrain, too soft to bear heavy vehicles”.
