Hi Mirador,

Thanks for sharing. This really is astounding!
I've long believed that there is vast knowledge that the ancient races had that we've lost because of our lust for technology.

Looking at this form of binary data storage, and other things like the increadible accuracy of the Mayan calender, These people had very advanced intelligence.

Modern civilisation hasn't evolved. It's just got better tools.

James.

P.S.
I see now we all got it wrong with the World Wide Web....
it should have been the Inca-net!

I read the article about the Inca 'Khipu' method of written language to my son Alan, and what struck him was the fact that seemingly they didn't need to see to read it, that it seems to have been created for visually challenged people, like Braille.

The Incas were Atlantian Descendants.

Hephaestos,

Sure, those dumb indians couldn't have come up by themselves with such ingenious writing method. It had to be some white folk, probably Aryans, from Atlantis who taught them. Sounds familiar?

Probably more precisely, the Inca's were taught by Atlanteans.  Mirador... hmm it does sound familiar... sounds like your an idiot.  Storing some anger against the white man?

Hey, from what ive read ive concluded and come to believe that the Incas directly descended from the Atlanteans. Atlanteans might not have been white, or they might not have all been white, could have been multiracial.

The Inca God Wiracocha, who taught the Inca astronomy, sustainable agri-forestry, and all they needed to acquire prosperity and avoid chronic poverty, is portrayed in temples and carvings as a tall bearded 'white' man. So I must be a direct descendant of good old "Wira" (as we relatives call him out of endearment) since I'm tall, blond (and blueyed) and have to shave daily my profusely growing beard. Maybe I sound like an idiot, but I surely dont look like one!

since we're heading towards that topic.. there is substantial evidence that *none* of the mesoamerican civilizations came to mexico through that land bridge. in fact, as archaeologists dig more and more, they're finding that those civilizations are much older than it was previously thought, making it harder for the people to have migrated across 2 large continents in the alotted amount of time. the olmecs, which were the first people in mesoamerica, and preceeded the aztecs, incas, and mayans, are now believed to have been around back in 1500 bc at least, whereas it was previously thought to be no later than 250 ad that civlization was set up in mesoamerica.

not only that, but the olmecs' statues and forms of art depicted men that resembled those of african origin! the statues look *distinctly* like african faces, but of course, this would shatter many common-held beliefs. how could people from africa travel across the atlantic ocean to present-day mexico? unheard of! but why are there no traces of man coming down through north america? there *is* no such evidence. pure speculation on behalf of the scientific community.

then there are other artifacts recovered from the olmec civlization. in particular, a toy made of clay. what's unique about the toy is that it's an elephant! why is that significant? because elephants are native to africa and southern india alone! the chances of people out of northern asia, who came all the way down through north america, to sit down and carve animals out clay - animals they've supposively never seen before (!) - is rediculous.

then there's the fact that mesoamerica shared calenders and important dates with egypt. egypt, of course is in africa, as are elephants and african people. all this points to one thing: the mesoamerican peoples were from africa - not migrated from asia and north america!

but how did they cross the ocean? well.. with a little help from the annunaki. for more info on them, just see the topics in the prophecy/divination forum.

o
On this same section (or was it another?) I posted a parallel thread about the Inca, and it had to do with 'trepanation' or 'trephilation' of the skull, which consists of a procedures were orifices are drilled or cut into the skull, some in geometric patterns. Up 'till know no mention has been made about the 'usefulness' of this operation, only to express admiration on how the Inca's could have performed them with their crude technology and tools. Recently I read somewhere where someone in England had had a trepanation performed for some unrelated reason, and the side effect was that he was able to hear for the first time in his life. He had been stone deaf for all of his life!  It occured to me, that maybe this procedure was used to provoke or allow hightened sensory or psychic perceptions of some kind. I even suggested jokingly if any AstralPulsars were willing to experiment with such a procedure.

Inca Written Language Hidden in Code?
By Rossella Lorenzi, Discovery News

An Inca Khipu
July 1, 2003 The Inca invented a seven-bit binary code to store information more than 500 years before the invention of the computer, according to the latest research into this still mysterious ancient population.
Begun in the Andean highlands in about 1200, the Inca ruled the largest empire on Earth by the time their last emperor, Atahualpa, was garroted by Spanish conquistadors in 1533.
But the voice of the Inca has never been heard; it has long been considered the only major Bronze Age civilization without a written language.
Gary Urton, professor of Precolumbian studies at Harvard University, is now challenging that assumption in a new book, "Signs of the Inka Khipu" (University of Texas Press).
According to Urton, this ancient population had a written language disguised in the form of elaborated knotted strings known as khipu.
Derived from the Quechua word khipu, or "knot," these decorative objects consist of one main cord to which are attached several pendant strings. These, which can carry subsidiary or tertiary strings, bear clusters of knots.
Already in 1923, science historian L. Leland Locke proved that the khipu were more than decorative; they were a sort of textile abacus, their knots used to store calculations.
But Locke's rules decoded only a small percentage of the existing 600 khipu that survived the Spanish destruction, failing to take into account even one-half of the total information encoded in them, Urton said.
"The most convincing evidence for this three-dimensional writing system is the khipu. Their complexity would have been unnecessary if they were just mnemonic devices understood only by their makers," Urton told Discovery News.
In his book, Urton has for the first time systematically analyzed the khipu's essential elements. It emerged that there are seven points in making a khipu, where the maker chooses between two possibilities.
The binary choices include the type of material (cotton or wool), the spin and ply direction of the string, the direction (forward or reversed) of the knot, and so on. A strict seven-bit code would produce 128 permutations (two to the power of seven). But Urton calculated that there were 24 possible colors that could be used in khipu making.
Thus the khipu code can store 1,536 units of information (two to the power of six, multiplied by 24), comparable to the 1000 to 1500 Sumerian cuneiform symbols and more than twice the Egyptian and Maya hieroglyphic signs.
A definitive way to crack the intractable code would be the discovery of what Urton calls a Rosetta khipu, something similar to the deciphering of Egyptian hieroglyphics from the Rosetta stone.
"We have a sizeable number of khipu and we have about a dozen documents that are written up from the khipu. What we don't have yet is a match between a document and a khipu," said Urton.
While searching, Urton is attacking the khipu code with 21st-century technology, creating a database packed with any possible data on each khipu: length of the main string, number of pendants, details on the knots, spin, ply of each string, and so on, in order to search for common patterns.
"Just ten days ago, I discovered three khipu that share part of the information. This is a pretty strong evidence that they were not made by single people. On the contrary, there was a shared code," he said.
"It is an interesting study. Certainly, khipu were much more than mnemonic devices," Laura Laurencich Minelli, professor of Precolumbian studies at Bologna University and author of several books on the Inca and the khipu, told Discovery News.
