Old Galaxy Finds Fountain of Youth

 

In a galaxy far, far away, a theft of cosmic proportions is taking place in an effort to claim the fountain of youth. 


 

A massive galaxy is stealing a billion suns worth of gas from a smaller galactic neighbor. In space, gas is a hot commodity. Really hot. In this case, about 1,340 degrees Fahrenheit (730 degrees Celsius). And it's great for making new stars.

Ancient Writings

Akkadian Writing

All ancient books which have once been called ‘sacred’ by man, will have their lasting place in the history of mankind, and those who possess the courage, the perseverance, and the self-denial of the true miner, and of the true scholar, will find even in the darkest and dustiest shafts what they are seeking for,--real nuggets of thought, and precious jewels of hope.


Translation:  

 

When heaven above was not yet named, nor earth below pronounced by name, Apsu, the first one, their begetter and maker Tiamat, who bore them all, had mixed their waters together, but had not formed pastures, nor discovered reed-beds. When yet no gods were manifest, nor names pronounced, nor destinies decreed, then gods were born within them.

Strange Artifacts

The Stone Spheres


One of the strangest mysteries in archaeology was discovered in the Diquis Delta of
Costa Rica. Since the 1930s, hundreds of stone balls have been documented, ranging in size from a few centimeters to over two meters in diameter. Some weigh 16 tons.

 

Almost all of them are made of granodiorite, a hard, igneous stone. These objects are monolithic sculptures made by ‘human’ hands. A same discovery was made in my home country
Bosnia and Herzegovina last year suggesting that unknown civilization ruled our planet but suddenly disappeared  leaving no evidence behind of who they were.

IC 4678
 

 


The Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope turned its sights on nebulae clouds within the constellation Sagittarius. Known as the IC 4678 area to astronomers, this region represents a birthing place for stars and shows a snapshot of the evolution cycle of matter in galaxies.
