Epeira Fasciata, the weaver spider
One of the largest spiders in Italy has a unique characteristic: it is a master at repairing its web, with skills that would make a tailor envious. Known as the banded garden spider (argiope bruennichi), this beautiful arachnid features striking yellow and black horizontal stripes resembling a wasp. It can reach up to 5 centimeters in length with its legs, while the female's body alone can be up to 1.5 centimeters. As is common with spiders, the males are much smaller, less than a third of the size of the females, making them vulnerable if they don't quickly escape after mating. Despite its formidable appearance, the banded garden...

Amphicoelias fragillimus, the longest dinosaur
Dinosaurs are renowned for their colossal size, being among the largest creatures to ever roam the Earth. But just how massive were they? What holds the record for the largest animal to have ever lived on land? Excluding marine species, for which precise measurements may remain elusive, the top spot for the longest land animal goes to Amphicoelias fragillimus , a Diplodocid dinosaur that roamed present-day Arizona around 150 million years ago. Discovered in 1877, initially, a close relative measuring 25 meters in length was found, followed by the astonishing discovery of a 1.5-meter-long vertebra from an even more colossal creature. The d...

The Giant Emperor
Gaius Julius Verus Maximinus, better known as Maximinus Thrax, was a Roman emperor who reigned from 235 to 238 CE. Native of Thrace, he was the first barbarian soldier to be named emperor by his troops, after dethroning Alexander Severus. His story would have nothing unusual, except for the fact that after him there were six emperors in less than a year. What is striking about Massimino Trace is his height: at his death his skeleton measured eight and a half feet, equal to 2.59 meters . He was a true colossus, who was more than a meter taller than contemporary soldiers and described by historians as physically very strong and as robust as...

Optical lenses in ancient Egypt
Egypt is a fantastic land, full of fabulous myths, legends and symbolism. But even from a technological point of view it didn't have much to envy of the current world. Among the most impressive technical skills was the grinding of the very hard quartz crystals used in the representation of the eyes in the statues. A wooden statue in good condition still shows the perfect smoothness of the Hyaline Quartz crystals, which perfectly rendered the translucent transparency of human eyes. A similar ability made it possible to create today sight lenses, microscopes and telescopes and this was perhaps the secret of the great knowledge of Astron...

Was the Great Pyramid of Giza an ancient power plant?

The pyramids would use technology similar to that created by Nikola Tesla with the Wardenclyffe Tower in Colorado Springs. The pyramids would be made with a series of conductive and insulating materials, as well as being built on land that has a high rate of natural radioactivity and telluric currents. The conversion of this energy perhaps combined with cosmic radiation through the gold tip of the pyramid may have been able to produce energy.

Was the Great Pyramid of Giza an ancient power plant?
The idea that civilizations around the world have evolved from a primitive state to a more advanced one is something scholars have propagated as the ultimate truth in our society, schools, and history books. However, numerous researchers around the world suggest otherwise. In fact, ancient civilizations were much more advanced than we commonly believe. Examining historical references from numerous ancient civilizations worldwide reveals patterns and details that tell a different story than the one presented in school books. For example, pyramids might have been immense high-voltage power plants. The pyramidal shape itself suggests energy ...

The Toba Catastrophe Theory: When Humanity was on the brink of extinction

In our DNA there is the trace of an apocalyptic volcanic eruption that occurred 75 thousand years ago that killed millions of people. Is this the catastrophe linked to the extermination of the First Men present in myths around the world?

In the legends of all religions around the world, there is the memory of a dramatic moment for Humanity. The Gods, tired of its people's sins, decides to unleash a terrible punishment upon them, from which only a few chosen ones will be saved to create the present society. The Bible's reference to the Great Flood is clear, believed by many to be a real event linked to the melting of the ice from the last glaciation. This thaw marked the end of the Pleistocene and the beginning of a new era, the Holocene, in which we live today. Despite the climate variability of the Holocene, it is generally accepted that this geological epoch is ...

The story of the White Pyramid of China began in 1940 when eyewitness reports, particularly by American pilot James Gaussman, mentioned the presence of a huge "white pyramid" near the Chinese city of Xi'an. According to these accounts, if true, this structure was larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza. For many decades, the region was off-limits to western tourists, and once these restrictions were lifted, many pyramids were discovered in the area, but the giant "white pyramid" was not among them. An aerial photograph near Xi'an, initially thought to show the White Pyramid, turned out to be of a much smaller hill. So, what is the a...

The Cheops pyramid is capable of concentrating radio waves

In 2018 scientists studied the characteristics of the Cheops pyramid and come to the conclusion that it is capable of concentrating electromagnetic energy in its internal chambers and focusing it in the space below it. The discovery was published in the Journal of Applied Physics.

The Cheops pyramid was built in the middle of the third millennium BC on the initiative of Pharaoh Khufu (Khufu), representative of the fourth dynasty of the Old Kingdom: the period of construction of all the "great pyramids" of Egypt. This construction, 145 meters high, 230 meters wide and 230 meters long, remains one of the tallest and largest structures ever built by humanity. Over the last two centuries, inside the pyramid, scientists have discovered four rooms, one of which supposedly buried the pharaoh himself, the other his wife, the third was considered a bait or trap for thieves, and the fourth room was recently found by physicis...

Ooparts - Objects out of time
In this article I'd like to delve into the topic of ooparts, specific objects that are, in essence, "out of time." In other words, they are found in contexts that are highly unlikely, if not outright impossible, according to the conventional flow of history as we understand it. To provide a clear illustration, consider the scenario of discovering a mobile phone inside a sealed tomb dating back to 2000 BC—an object that clearly could not have existed during that era. While no cell phones have actually been unearthed in ancient tombs, there exist numerous mysterious objects and discoveries that warrant investigation. Some appear to be e...
