Someone in the members' vid-chat last Friday night asked me what I thought about the events in Libya, and if I thought that there might be "other motivations" behind the projection of Western power into that country, if, perhaps, I thought it possible that "they" were looking for "something" concerning ancient technology. I have to admit, the idea intrigued me and I don't suspect, for a moment, that that is the only reason, but I do hold open the possibility that it might be a reason.
One of the more peculiar features of that country is the so-called Libyan Desert Glass, near the western edge of the "Sand Sea" of Egypt, close to the border of modern day Libya. But there is a mystery associated with the place, and it's a rather large one:
The article notes that the area comprises yellow-greenish glass, that was formed by the high heat of ... well, a meteor impact some "29 million years ago, very likely when an asteroid or comet hit the surface of the earth like a huge atomic bomb, unleashing enough destructive force to liquefy the rocks, sand and dirt at ground zero." But there's a problem, and the problem is highlighted by the very next sentence:
"The crater marking the original impact site has not yet been discovered. It‘s possible that it is under millions of tons of sand or it erroded away over the millions of years. Another possibility is that an event, similar to the explosion of an asteroid or comet that knocked down nearly a thousand square miles of trees in the Tunguska region in Siberia on June 30, 1908. A similar, much larger, atmospheric explosion could have created a fireball that would be large and hot enough to fuse surface materials to glass, much like the first atomic explosion generated green glass at the Trinity site in 1945."
There you have it: it was created by a meteor impact, but, hey, oh yea, we're missing the crater, or it could have been caused by a Tunguska-like event, where a meteor exploded in the air creating a massive fireball...or..." Uh huh.
Well, I've never bought the "spontaneously exploding meteor" explanation for Tunguska either. Which leaves...technology as a possibility, and that raises the bar... Just what may have been discovered under the Libyan deserts by radar tomography is anyone's guess, because for the most part, public information - at least as far as I've researched the matter as of this moment - has been mostly concerned with petroleum exploration. But we are seeing perhaps a bit of a pattern here, for Libya would make the third Middle Eastern country in the last decade to be subjected to an intervention by western powers, after Iraq and Egypt...
...now, if artifacts from museums in Tripoli suddenly turn up missing.... well, you draw your own conclusions.
