7.10 – HIDDEN PYRAMIDS (4.17.15)


Northern Peru. The Lambayeque Valley. What appears today to be a ravine of large, earthen hills is, in fact, a lost ancient city. For centuries, this region was overlooked by archaeologists. But in 1988, explorer Thor Heyerdahl investigated the mysterious mounds and determined them to be man-made structures. The excitement at what he and his team found led to a series of excavations and to the discovery that what had long been considered natural formations were, in fact, massive adobe brick pyramids, severely ravaged by time. And this vast system of monuments was built by what might very well have been the most prolific pyramid builders of all.

“This was the site of a culture called the Sicán. And these people, who rose around 750 AD, seemed to be absolutely obsessed with the creation of pyramids. In fact, they created as many as 250 within this valley alone. And in one particular town, they created 26 that were all basically back-to-back, side-by-side. And it would seem that the stories from the myths and legends of these people is that they felt that they had to do this, because if they didn’t create these pyramids, the world would quite literally come to an end.”

Archaeologists suggest that it would’ve taken 2,000 workers an entire year just to make the mud bricks for one of the 26 pyramids here in the city of Túcume. But who could’ve engineered such a massive construction project? Is it possible the builders had access to advanced technology?

“If they had help to build these pyramids, it would solve a lot of problems in trying to understand how a civilization could mount such a daunting enterprise.”

Rob Simone (Author, The Epic of Gilgamesh)

According to mainstream historians, the Sicán people mysteriously disappeared in 1375. Although there are no written records revealing why they were obsessed with building pyramids, Ancient Astronaut Theorists say clues may be found by examining the multiple images of birdmen that archaeologists discovered inside one of the structures.

“The birdman image is something that’s iconic of depicting someone who can come from the sky. So, these glyphs that are seen on the walls of these structures are particularly interesting. The idea that we have the pyramids, that we have this representation of people coming from the sky, is yet another validation of an amazing structure built with the assistance of some being that came from the skies.”

Rob Simone (Author, The Epic of Gilgamesh)

Depictions of creatures that are half bird and half man have been discovered in many ancient cultures. Approximately 1,400 miles south of Túcume in Bolivia, carvings of birdmen can be found on the Sun Gate at Tiahuanaco. According to the local Incan mythology, these are beings who came down from the sky with the creator god Viracocha. Similar stories can be found on Easter Island with the so-called “birdman cult.” In Japan where supernatural birdman beings called Tengu are revered. And on the other side of the world in ancient Sumeria, birdmen known as the “Anunnaki” were said to be advanced beings that came down from the heavens to colonize the earth.

“You have to wonder if these birdmen aren’t the Anunnaki who are coming from ancient Sumeria who have these elongated heads. And so is it possible that these Anunnaki extraterrestrials were coming to Peru and to Túcume and instructing the people on building these pyramids.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(Vimana: Flying Machines of the Ancients)

“I don’t think that it is pure coincidence that there are so many motifs all around the world that are not just similar, but in many cases identical. That, to me, indicates that not only were they not isolated but that they were visited by the same people, by visitors from the sky. And the only way our ancestors could make sense of it is to outfit them with wings.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Interestingly, the Sicán people who occupied this area of Peru not only made carvings of birdmen, but also told stories of a mysterious being who helped build their society, and then disappeared into the sky.

“The great heroic leader of the people was Naylamp. He built the pyramids and taught them a new religion. And when he felt that his work was done, he went down to the seashore, turned himself into a bird and flew off into the heavens, and is in the end a celestial being.”

– Jonathan Young, Ph.D.

Could it be that the birdmen depicted in Túcume were really alien beings that came down to Earth and helped the Sicán people to build hundreds of pyramids? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining pyramids discovered on the other side of the world deep beneath the sea.
