One of my Facebook friends, Mr. Dave Walton in the U.K., found this story and posted it on my Facebook wall, and I thought is was so intriguing that I had to share it here:

Mysterious Mass Sacrifice Found Near Ancient Peru Pyramid

What intrigues me is that this site was found near an ancient Peruvian pyramid, making yet another instance in which pyramidal structures in the Americas were associated with sacrifice, or alternatively, ritual death, of some sort, making yet another case that the ancient Americans thought, for whatever reason, that sacrifice and pyramids were connected. The article notes, however, that with but a couple of exceptions, most of the victims appear to have been male, and some of the recovered skeletons are headless, indicating decapitation, either as the means of death, or a post mortem operation, with several of the heads buried at another site.

Notably, the article suggests that archaeologists suspect the offering may have been made to a dead lord, a practice found in common with other ancient societies.

The usual explanation here is of course a religious one. And it is here that I suggest that the explanation may ultimately fall short, for as I observed in Grid of the Gods, the religious origins of sacrifice appear to be through some sort of misreading of what I have called the Ancient Topological Metaphor of the physical medium, and indeed, there is evidence from Vedic texts that Dr. de Hart and I discuss in Transhumanism, that this is the case.In short, the clue may lie in religion, but only in religion insofar as it is a religious distortion of a more fundamental cosmological principle.In short, I am suggesting that we have not dug - pardon the pun - deeply enough into the roots and motivations for one of the most perplexing and barbaric practices in human history.

Obviously, this is all speculation. But it is, I hope, a rational one. We may choose to look on such ancient graves with the cold dispassion of an archaeologist, without reminding ourselves that these were human beings, with lives, memories, families, histories, loves, laughs, and tears, and who, for reasons both profound and profoundly warped, were either involuntarily slaughtered or, worse, went to these grizzly deaths much as a jihadist goes to his or her own, hoping in the insurance of a suitable reward in the afterlife. The origin of this thinking is, again, I am convinced, in a distortion of cosmological views, and perhaps even a manipulated distortion, for as my co-author and I also observe in the Grid of the Gods, the Aztecs, who also practiced this barbarism, admitted that it was not original to their culture, that their founding god had prohibited any sort of bloody sacrifice - human or otherwise - and that it was introduced by evil sorcerers led by an unsavory character named Yaotl.

    As to the “why?” (for any ot the nonsense that occurs here on Earth), here is a quote from a self-published book that is completely unverifiable, but sure would explain everything (and certainly fits right in with a lot of what Joseph writes):

    “After the destruction of Atlantis, many of these superior beings went among the many nations of the planet Earth to influence those primitive cultures with their ways. Some of these great beings, who were immortal, did not necessarily have good intentions. Many of these immortals had only conquest and slavery of humanity as their intention, yet they have never openly demonstrated their superiority. These immortals, good and bad, still walk among you seeking to influence the world with their power.”

    –The Teachings of Quetzalcoatl, the Consolidation of Power, Part One, by Avendar Dragon (obvious pseudonym)

    Fascinating stuff for those who like this sort of thing.

    So much of known history is so insane I tend to think that something like this is probably what we have to deal with . . .no certain knowledge, though.

    Hopefully the author will soon have his work for free (or really, really cheap, like $1) at Amazon, or some similar place, soon.

    • bdw on January 10, 2012 at 9:38 pm

      Oh yeah, this author thinks that some of “the Nazi’s” are reincarnated Aztecs. No way to verify such an idea, of course, but that would explain a lot.

    Very good and a very good descriptive word:

    The same T-in-T bad guys are all the same
    [literally, anyone?]
    and THAT [through religion] is one of THEIR MOs.

    The good guys, also T-in-T, learn and grow….

    You can see it happening now, even as a sort of
    ………….the mean are getting [noticeably] meaner and
    and the truly good and nice are getting better.

    What a jolt !

      Of course, I have a book recently acquired on that,
      I have yet to get to.

    The Andean sacrifice I think was Mochian I read about that in a article in National Geographic some years ago. And in a book years before The Desert Kingdoms Of Peru. Also in the book Digging at UR and the book The Second Sex mention a mass human sacrifice in Mesopotamia. Today the human sacrifice is done by killing non combattents by bombing civilian population centers of every size or of combattents on the battlefield inself. The more ritualize form now is what we call Capitol Punishment.

    I can’t keep up with all the high tone writing that’s gone before me.
    I simply wanted to comment on archaeology.

    Here is my thought: I’ll bet a dollar to a do-nut that if some
    archaeologist one thousand years from now dug up a coke bottle
    he/she would automatically give it some religious significance. And
    what if a few feet away from the coke bottle was discovered a
    bottle opener? More religion?

    • paul degagne on January 6, 2012 at 4:10 am

      A coke bottle thrown out of a airplane window landing in some small tribal village.

      A Gift from the Heavens?

      I seem to recall a movie starting out that way but I forget the rest of the story.

        What is the definition of TOPOLOGY.

        I know one definition would be ‘Taking simple ELEMENTS and recombining them is an INFINITE VARIETY OF WAYS.

        I would imagine taking a course in TOPOLOGY wouldn’t be like the average or usual class where the end of the term or BOOK has the solutions.

        It would be like starting at the solution or end of the book and WORKING YOUR WAY TOWARD THE ELEMENTS OR GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF THE COURSE.

        How many colleges courses where they did this? Never for me. I would take the course but from what I looked up one needs a background in CALCULUS and I really don’t have the time for all that!

        • HAL838 on January 7, 2012 at 9:36 am

          According to Dr Farrell’s Alma Mater dictionary,
          ‘topology’ is defined as:
          “the study of geometrical properties and spatial relations
          unaffected by the continuous change of shape or size
          of figures.”

          The dictionary is a few years old, but definately after 2000.

          Illustrated Oxford Dictionary

          I’m glad I was prompted to look that up.

    What if pyramid building is nearly as old as homo sapiens themselves? What if they learned early on that the Sun is highly erratic and deadly to the Earth from time to time? What if they discovered pyramid building a hundred thousand years ago or more as a means to placate the Sun’s destructive earthbound energy?

    Now what if, under this guise of protecting the planet from the Sun’s deadly energy, a group of justified men, living in an Atlantean colony in what is present day Egypt, build an energy weapon in the guise of a peaceful Sun pacifying pyramid? What if they turned this pyramid weapon on their unwitting despotic rulers and destroyed their base of operation– Atlantis? Could this not be what modern day Japan was attempting before Fukishima? A peaceful nuclear power plant that was actually a cover for an energy weapon?

    Unfortunately for mankind, an Anunnaki sorcerer was able to escape the sinking island in his ark and re-establish the Anunnaki in a new base of operation and carry on the cycle of perpetual harassment of humanity by the Anunnaki.

    But what if justified men today are allowing the Anunnaki to establish a center for their demonic quest of planetary rule in the middle east with the intended purpose of drawing a large concentration of Anunnaki to this hornet’s nest? Once the Anunnaki hive has been filled, it is the plan of these justified crusaders for humanity to annihilate it in the same manner as Atlantis? Just a thought…

    • HAL838 on January 7, 2012 at 9:39 am

      “What if” Dr Farrell is mostly correct in his
      speculative “Giza Death Star” trilogy?

      What a trip !
      I gotta stick around !

  6. Father Krespi on January 5, 2012 at 9:11 am

    It seems time and again that the Aryan Solar cultures are usurped by the Anunnaki sorcerers. Atlantis, Mexico, Peru, etc. The only place they were run out on the rails was in Egypt when Moses and his demonic cabal were routed out. Once the Anunnaki gain control the culture inevitably deteriorates into blood sacrifice. This is how they propitiate their demon overlord and maintain power. I suspect executing nobility is just purging the resistance. Is this not what the Anunnaki did in Russia in 1917? They liquidated the nobility. If this wasn’t a blood sacrifice, it paved the way for the blood sacrifices to come. We are reaping the perfection of their blood sacrifice rites today in Europe and North America. I contend that abortion is nothing but a masterfully orchestrated blood sacrifice to Yahweh and the true source of their power in the modern world.

    That is not to say the Anunnaki will not one day resort back to beheading as this seems to be their favorite mode of execution and the one prescribed in the Noahide Laws, their blueprint for an Anunnaki theocracy. I noticed in the recent demonstrations in Tel Aviv a guillotine was paraded through the streets. As well, several vile Annunnaki in the US recently called for the “beheading” of their opponents.

    Of course, blood sacrifice is antithetical to the Aryan form of Divine worship. The pyramids were not built for blood rituals. The Anunnaki clearly are not using the pyramids for their intended purposes. Their blood sacrifices thus must be either an act of defilement to the pyramids or the blood ritual gains more power by being conducted on the pyramid. What is mystifying is why did the Aryans build the pyramids? If they were the last great global culture and pyramids are a global phenomenon, the Aryans must have built them, considering the timeline of both.

    One theory I would propose, and this may be quite a stretch, what if the sole purpose if Aryan Solar worship is simply propitiation to the Solar Entity who seems to wreak havoc on the earth every 12,000 years or so. Maybe the Aryan Solar religion is nothing but pure mollification to the fickle and most powerful and destructive force in the Solar system. The force that nearly destroyed humankind 11,000 + years ago with the sinking of Atlantis, the inundation of the continents and probably the climate change which drove the Aryans from their Arctic home. Maybe it is grave negligence on our part not to worship the all powerful Sun? Maybe we will reap the wrath of the spurned Sun in the future when He lashes the Earth with Solar flares. Does not the Rig Veda actually have prayers which beg the Sun “not to scorch us?”

    This leaves us with the mystery of the pyramids. What if the pyramids were built to protect the planet from the Sun’s haywire energies? What if they are just some kind of resonators which are an attempt by man to harness erratic bursts of Solar energy? As the Aryans spread across the globe after the sinking of Atlantis, it seems like pyramids popped up every where they went. Maybe this was a massive public works project done in mind of the recent memory of the violently volatile Sun??

    • HAL838 on January 7, 2012 at 9:43 am

      and an obvious object for ‘worship’ if one

    Look at how many people are SACRIFICED because they wont put STEEL BEAMS in SIDE DOORS of AUTOMOBILES? (because it costs too much – how much is too much OR WHO DECIDES?)

    WHAT DIFFERENCE does it make if you find yourself on top of some STRUCTURE AND someone is standing above you with an elevated arm and a knife in hand INCANTING some RUBBISH WHO IS about to …. OR your riding along some city street and some PUNK OR DRUNK or someBODY IS text-messaging or even someone lost in their thoughts for the moment daydreaming about the good lay they had last night doesn’t see the traffic light or stop signs AND CRASHES INTO TO YOU and sends you off to SEE YOUR MAKER!


    I say only the outer FORM has changed.

    The PROBLEM is still the SAME = THEN and NOW!


    One could make a point about the fear involved in the first example BUT i SAY FOOEY, because WHAT FEAR REMAINS AFTER DEATH?

      • paul degagne on January 5, 2012 at 8:31 am

        gutten morgan, Herr Chalie,

        Your comment brought back something I just read from Umberto Eco about ACCUSATIONS?

        He writes, “As I have many times been accused of trying to be agreeable at
        all costs, the discovery that I am disagreeable fills me with pride and virtuous satisfaction.”

        Those two lines are SO PRECIOUS,

        but top it off in a chapter in the Same book called “HANDS OFF MY SON!” where he’s discussing MEL GIBSON’S part as Christ in the film THE PASSION.

        The last sentence in the chapter he writes:

        “In any case, I am grateful to the reader who wrote, “Dear Umberto, I’ll never forgive you for giving away the end of the film.””


        I may have called him FAT BOY but I’ll NEVER get into the RING with that INTELLECTUAL PUGALIST! (I am smarter than that even though it took me a few moments to catch on but I know why. He’s MASS MEDIA
        POPULARIST so I was puzzled by this ‘dumb shit’ reference. But I put two and two together.

        Think of all the corny dumb-shit enjoyable sit-com shows. Why are some of them SO GOOD? Because US dumb shits get to watch some even dumber shit on TV MAKING A FOOL OF THEMSELVES henceforth or therefore filling us with sic VIRTUOUS SATISFACTION.

        I go further — whose the dumb shit here. The dumb-shit ACTOR on TV getting a million dollars a show OR THE dumb shit CRITIC sitting on the couch who after the show runs out to the store to buy TIDE DETERGENT at three times the COSTS of a perfectly good detergent box sitting right next to TIDE (I don’t). OR who has a CAPITAL ONE CREDIT CARD like I do in his WALLET charging OUTRAGIOUS INTEREST.

        Whose the DUMB SHITS HERE?


        I just finished or SICCCCCCCC – READ the prague cemetary but I also READ FIVE other books of his along with it at the same time. (I like them for he puts THEORY INTO PRACTICE IN THEM WHICH IS THE REAL PURPOSE OF —–THEORY == PUT IT INTO PRACTICE INTO WHAT’S LEFT OF THE —-REEL WORLD!

        Now he does make a CHALLENGE TO ME —- His THEORY OF SEMIOTICS and LANGUAGE AND SEMIOTICS is another BOOKS is another STORY. (I say, How can anyone get that ABSTRACT and still say they LIVE ON THIS PLANEt?


        Why should we be a bunch of sad-sacks living in the (FOR YOU CHARLIE) === Prison-house of SIC proper GRAMMATICAL FORM OR STRUCTURE —NO CAPITALS RIGHT —- on your march HUP, TWO, THREE, FOUR….ha.ha!)

        • Charlie Prime on January 5, 2012 at 11:17 am

          I did not read your comment because your writing style is rude and sophomoric. If you type simply because you enjoy the activity, have at it. If you wish to communicate with other people, consider being courteous to readers.

          • paul degagne on January 5, 2012 at 5:38 pm

            I noticed the tag above your post says your CHARLIE PRIME. I think there is a little misunderstanding here.

            Unless you changed your HANDLE from CHARLIE FRITH to CHARLIE PRIME then I wasn’t directing my words to you in the REPLY SECTION.. Si Senior. (two CHARLIES IN HERE MAYBE?)

            Next time I will not make this slight error and will use CHARLIE F instead of plain generic Charlie> OK.

            I am glad you don’t like my writing style. I don’t direct my comments to FENCE-SITTERS who think they can DETERMINE the way people should WRITE. (a bit UNDEMOCRATIC would you say so or in a way that pleases only a PISSANT?)

            The picture of CHARLIE F up on the screen is funny. I like some of the meaning of it. I think he has a sense of humor. Someone who may be able to LAUGH AT HIMSELF AS WELL AS OTHERS?

            I HOPE YOU DIDN’T CHANGE YOUR HANDLE OR TAG charlie f. because I like you more the other way around?

            Even if charlie prime isn’t you.
