To the Mayan civilization, death was the giver of life. It was through the act of dying that one transcended through life into other dimensions. Legend has it that 13 life size crystal skulls exist carved of natural quartz crystal, some with movable jaws, that are said to "talk" or "sing." The skulls were said to be remnants from our earliest ancestors and that they contained information and knowledge.
Information on a grand scale. The skulls are said to contain the answers to human evolution, universal information, planetary information, and most valuable of all, humankind's destiny and true purpose. The legend claims that at a time of great need, the skulls will be discovered and reunited. The information they provide will save the human race. The legend forewarns, however, that mankind must be able to accept the knowledge morally and spiritually.
Variations of this legend exist in Native American tribes ranging from the Mayans, the Navajo Indians, the Aztecs, the Cherokee Indians, the Seneca Indians. These legends have been handed down through generations for literally thousands of years.
For generations, the Mayans spoke of great visions, prophecies, and wisdom obtained from "talking skulls." They claimed the skulls shot fire, sang, and spoke. Now, it seems, that may be somewhat true. The Mitchell-Hedges skull was sent to the Hewlett Packard labs in the early 1970's for intense study.
The results were absolutely startling and the scientists made the claim that "this skull shouldn't even exist."
Natural quartz crystal grows in the ground and can take billions of years to form. Intense heat and pressure is required as well as a "seed" crystal from which to grow from. As a result, impurities can run deep. As a matter of fact, much of the earth's natural quartz crystal contains impurities and retains no value to the electronics industry.
For those of you who don't know, quartz crystal is the basis to our modern day computers. However, the purest form is required and, as a result, scientists now must grow their own quartz using a natural seed from which to grow it from.
So now that you have an understanding of the rarity of a large natural, virtually pure, piece of crystal - let's get into the astonishing results the HP scientists reached. The skull was submersed into Benzyl alcohol, having exactly the same refractive index of pure crystal. When this was done, the skull "disappeared" indicating it was of the purest, natural, form.
A polarized light test concluded that the piece was one large, natural, piece of crystal. It was not created by fusing several together. Amazingly, the detachable lower jaw was carved from the very same piece of crystal. Pure crystal is a hard material, being only slightly softer than diamond. But it has a very brittle quality and shatters rather easily. The scientist determined that carving the skull using modern day tools could take up to one year.
The scientists felt that it was not even possible to do so using these tools. The heat and vibration would surely crack the crystal. The scientists took particular note of that with regards to the bottom jaw and the teeth. There was simply no way modern day equipment would not damage the piece. The scientists magnified the skull and found no tool marks, tool chatter or scratches. As a result, the HP scientists had to conclude the skull was carved by hand. This was a phenomenal discovery to them. This would have had to have been done by rubbing the crystal with sand and water. According to the HP scientists. . . .this would've taken 300 years.
They also concluded that the sand used would've had to have been graded down from finer sand to more coarse sand. One wrong rub and it all could have been over. Not only was this one rare, large, pure, piece of natural quartz crystal, but for those of you who don't know this - crystal conducts energy. It's what is called piezo-electric crystal.
This is precisely the type of crystal that is used in modern electronics, computers, time keeping devices, radios, radar and sonar.
This means the crystal has both positive and negative polarity similar to that of a battery. If you apply pressure to the skull - it generates electricity. As well, it changes molecular shape if you apply an electric current to it which affects its density. It can carry a current in six directions. In any other direction, it becomes an insulator. More interestingly, it is also vertically oriented as well. The axis runs directly through the center of the skull. If you apply an electric current to the top, it changes shape and the current passes through the bottom. If you reverse the direction, the polarity reverses.
The skull is capable of channeling light through the bottom and directly out the eye sockets - like a laser - due to its incredible optical axis. And it can generate enough heat through its optical qualities and can start fires by directing beams of light through the eye sockets. This must've been quite a sight to the Mayan people during rituals.
Here's where it gets really strange. Light travels faster in one direction through the skull than in the other. If you direct polarized light at the skull, it passes quicker through one area and, as a result, the skull rotates the light traveling along its axis. The skull is resistant to chemical damage and can hold an electrical charge at a constant frequency. The skull can hold energy. What does this mean? It means that the skull can send electrical impulses and vibrating waves of information.
Technically, the skulls CAN contain information - just like the Mayans have claimed for thousands of years in their mythology. Could it be that we have discovered the Mayan equivalent of a modern day computer?
I'll skip right to the facts here. Frankly, the skull pictured shouldn't even exist. This is a photo of the Mitchell-Hedges Skull. There is a bit of mystery surrounding how this skull surfaced. Some, like the owner, claim that it was found in the jungle. Others have found record of it's sale at a well known auction house in the early part of this century. However it came to be discovered really isn't important. What is important is that we are discovering that what many thought to be mythology - is now becoming reality.
