- The Map Of 'The Creator'
- A discovery by Bashkir scientists contradicts all traditional
notions of human history: stone slabs which are 120 million years old and
covered with the relief map of the Ural Region.
- This seems to be impossible. Scientists of Bashkir State
University have found indisputable proofs of an ancient highly developed
civilization's existence. The question is about a great plate found in
1999, with picture of the region done according to an unknown technology.
This is a real relief map. Today's military has almost similar maps. The
map contains civil engineering works: a system of channels with a length
of about 12,000 km, weirs, powerful dams. Not far from the channels, diamond-shaped
grounds are shown, whose destination is unknown. The map also contains
some inscriptions. Even numerous inscriptions. At first, the scientists
thought that was Old Chinese language. Though, it turned out that the subscriptions
were done in a hieroglyphic-syllabic language of unknown origin. The scientists
never managed to read it
- "The more I learn the more I understand that I know
nothing," - the doctor of physical and mathematical science, professor
of Bashkir State University, Alexandr Chuvyrov admits. Namely Chuvyrov
made that sensational find. Already in 1995, the professor and his post-graduate
student from China Huan Hun decided to study the hypothesis of possible
migration of Old Chinese population to the territory of Siberia and Ural.
In an expedition to Bashkiria, they found several rock carvings done in
Old Chinese language. These finds confirmed the hypothesis of Chinese migrants.
The subscriptions were read. They mostly contained information about trade
bargains, marriage and death registration.
- Though, during the searches, notes dated the 18th century
were found in archives of Ufa governor-general. They reported about 200
unusual stone stabs which were situated not far from the Chandar village,
Nurimanov Region. Chuvyrov and his colleague at once decided that stabs
could be connected with Chinese migrants. Archive notes also reported that
in 17th-18th centuries, expeditions of Russian scientists who investigated
Ural Region had studied 200 white stabs with signs and patterns, while
in early 20th century, archaeologist A.Schmidt also had seen some white
stabs in Bashkiria. This made the scientist start the search. In 1998,
after having formed a team of his students, Chuvyrov launched the work.
He hired a helicopter, and the first expedition carried a flying around
of the places where the stabs were supposed to be. Though, despite all
efforts, the ancient stabs were not found. Chuvyrov was very upset and
even thought the stabs were just a beautiful legend.
- The luck was unexpected. During one of Chuvyrov's trips
to the village, ex-chairman of the local agricultural council, Vladimir
Krainov, came to him (apropos, in the house of Krainov's father, archaelogist
Schmidt once staid) and said: "Are you searching for some stone stabs?
I have a strange stab in my yard." "At first, I did not took
that report seriously, - Chuvyrov told. - Though, I decided to go to that
yard to see it. I remember this day exactly: July 21, 1999. Under the porch
of the house, the stab with some dents lied. The stab was so heavy that
we together could not take it out. So I went to the city of Ufa, to ask
- In a week, work was launched in Chandar. After having
dug out the stab, the searches were stroke with its size: it was 148 cm
high, 106 cm wide and 16 cm thick. While it weighed at least one ton. The
master of the house made special wooden rollers, so the stab was rolled
out from the hole. The find was called "Dashka's stone" (in honour
of Alexandr Chuvyrov's granddaughter born the day before it) and transported
to the university for investigation. After the stab was cleaned of earth,
the scientists could not entrust to their eyes... "At first sight,
- Chuvyrov sais, - I understood that was not a simple stone piece, but
a real map, and not a simple map, but a three-dimensional. You can see
- "How did we manage to identify the place? At first,
we could not imagine the map was so ancient. Happily, relief of today's
Bashkiria has not changed so much within millions of years. We could identify
Ufa Height, while Ufa Canyon is the main point of our proofs, because we
carried out geological studies and found its track where it must be according
to the ancient map. Displacement of the canyon happened because of tectonic
stabs which moved from East. The group of Russian and Chinese specialists
in the field of cartography, physics, mathematics, geology, chemistry,
and Old Chinese language managed to precisely find out that the stab contains
the map of Ural region, with rivers Belya, Ufimka, Sutolka," - Alexandr
Chuvyrov said while showing the lines on the stone to the journalists.
- You can see Ufa Canyon - the break of the earth's crust, stretched out
from the city of Ufa to the city of Sterlitimak. At the moment, Urshak
River runs over the former canyon." The map is done on a scale 1 :
- Alexandr Chuvyrov, being physicist, has got into the
habit of entrusting only to results of investigation. While today there
are such facts.
- Geological structure of the stab was determined: it cosists
of three levels. The base is 14 cm chick, made of the firmest dolomite.
The second level is probably the most interesting, "made" of
diopside glas. The technology of its treatement is not known to modern
science. Actually, the picture is marked on this level. While the third
level is 2 mm thick and made of calcium porcelain protecting the map from
- "It should be noticed, - the professor said, - that
the relief has not been manually made by an ancient stonecutter. It is
simply impossible. It is obvious that the stone was machined." X-ray
photographs confirmed that the stab was of artificial origin and has been
made with some precision tools.
- At first, the scientists supposed that the ancient map
could have been made by the ancient Chinese, because of vertical inscriptions
on the map. As well known, vertical literature was used in Old Chinese
language before 3rd century. To check his supposition, professor Chuvyrov
visited Chinese empire library. Within 40 minutes he could spend in the
library according to the permission he looked through several rare books,
though no one of them contained literature similar to that one on the stab.
After the meeting with his colleagues from Hunan university, he completely
gave up the version about "Chinese track." The scientist concluded
that porcelain covering the stab had never been used in China. Although
all the efforts to decipher the inscriptions were fruitless, it was found
out that the literature had hieroglyphic-syllabic character. Chuvyrov,
however, states he has deciphered one sign on the map: it signifies latitude
of today's city of Ufa.
- The longer the stab was studied, the more mysteries appeared.
On the map, a giant irrigative system could be seen: in addition to the
rivers, there are two 500-metre-wide channel systems, 12 dams, 300-500
metres wide, approximately 10 km long and 3 km deep each. The dams most
likely helped in turning water in either side, while to create them over
1 quadrillion cubic metres of earth was shifted. In comparison with that
irrigative system, Volga-Don Channel looks like a scratch on the today's
relief. As a physicist, Alexandr Chuvyrov supposes that now mankind can
build only a small part of what is pictured on the map. According to the
map, initially, Belaya River had an artificial river-bad.
- It was difficult to determine even an approximate age
of the stab. At first, radiocarbonic analysis was carried out, afterwards
levels of stab were scanned with uranium chronometer, though the investigations
showed different results and the age of the stab remained unclear. While
examining the stone, two shells were found on its surface. The age of one
of them - Navicopsina munitus of Gyrodeidae family - is about 500 million
years, while of the second one - Ecculiomphalus princeps of Ecculiomphalinae
subfamily - is about 120 million years. Namely that age was accepted as
a "working version." "The map was probably created at the
time when the Earth's magnetic pole situated in the today's area of Franz
Josef Land, while this was exactly 120 million years ago, - professor Chuvyrov
says. - The map we have is beyond of traditional perception of mankind
and we need a long time to get used to it. We have got used to our miracle.
At first we thought that the stone was about 3,000 years. Though, that
age was gradually growing, till we identified the shells ingrained in the
stone to sign some objects. Though, who could guarantee that the shell
was alive while being ingrained in the map? The map's creator probably
used a petrified find."
- What could be the destination of the map? That is probably
the most interesting thing. Materials of the Bashkir find were already
investigated in Centre of Historical Cartography in Visconsin, USA. The
Americans were amazed. According to them, such three-dimensional map could
have only one destination - a navigational one, while it could be worked
out only through aerospace survey. Moreover, namely now in the US, work
is being carried out at creation of world three-dimensional map like that.
Though, the Americans intend to complete the work only to 2010. The question
is that while compiling such three-dimensional map, it is necessary to
work over too many figures. "Try to map at least a mountain! - Chuvyrov
says. - The technology of compiling such maps demands super-power computers
and aerospace survey from the Shuttle." So, who then did created this
map? Chuvyrov, while speaking about the unknown cartographers, is wary:
"I do not like talks about some UFO and extraterrestrial. Let us call
the author of the map simply - the creator."
- It looks like that who lived and built at that time used
only air transport means: there is no ways on the map. Or they, probably,
used water ways. There is also an opinion, that the authors of the ancient
map did not live there at all, but only prepared that place for settlement
through draining the land. This seems to be the most probable version,
though nothing could be stated for the time being. Why not to assume that
the authors belonged to a civilization which existed earlier?
- Latest investigations of the map bring one sensation
after another. Now, the scientists are sure of the map being only a fragment
of a big map of the Earth. According to some hypothesis, there were totally
348 fragments like that. The other fragments could be probably somewhere
near there. In outskirts of Chandar, the scientists took over 400 samples
of soil and found out that the whole map had been most likely situated
in the gorge of Sokolinaya Mountain (Falcon Mountain). Though, during the
glacial epoch it was tore to pieces. But if the scientists manage to gather
the "mosaic," the map should have an approximate seize of 340
x 340 m. After having studied the archive materials, Chuvyrov ascertained
approximate place where four pieces could be situated: one could lie under
one house in Chandar, the other - under the house of merchant Khasanov,
the third - under one of the village baths, the fourth - under the bridge's
pier of the local narrow-gauge railway.
- In the meanwhile, Bashkir scientists send out information
about their find to different scientific centres of the world; in several
international congresses, they have already given reports on the subject:
The Civil Engineering Works Map of an Unknown Civilization of South Ural."
- The find of Bashkir scientists has no analogues. With
only one exclusion. When the research was at its height, a small stone
- chalcedony - got to professor Chuvyrov's table, containing a similar
relief. Probably somebody, who saw the stab wanted to copy the relief.
Though, who and why?
