Amazing! How Come Two Unrelated Communities Built Similar Temples on both Side of the Pacific Ocean Without Knowing Each Other?


This is almost too amazing to be true!

Completely unrelated religious communities built strikingly similar temples, although being separated by the Pacific Ocean.

Symmetry exists everywhere. It’s what gives us a sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance. A kind of magical symmetry can also be found in nature and space, for examples.

The image above also suggests a deep symmetry of cults and traditions that two cultures share despite the vast distance separating them.

Indeed, the temples in the picture – Khmer’s Baksei (left) and the Mayan’s Temple of the Masks (right) – are strikingly similar.

However, the people that built them are completely unrelated and have never seen each others.

The Khmer and the Mayans were indeed separated by the Pacific ocean.

Some more similarities

Both pyramids have:

  • Three main platforms or steps
  • A fourth smaller step is located atop the third step and is composed of narrow stairs

  • The stairways leading to the temple tops are extremely steep

  • Similar corbelled arches, which seem to have both a symbolic and a functional purpose.

similarities between temples: Triptych temples are found on both sides of the Pacific Ocean, a fact not yet understood by academia.

Based on the similar stone architecture of their respective temples, it can be hypothesized that both cultures clearly shared the same cults, symbols and maybe religions. More mystery of religions on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [Richard Cassaro]

  1. After we go through and then we carry it back here and it radiates to she mind but for some reason in this cycle we’ve been in the lower natures, the animal thought. But now we’re going into the human world. The mind is going to be opened up to the radiance of our own soul and the cycle of the human beings is going to come back, and something so good is going to happen on the earth that it cannot even be described. The elders say it in different ways. They say, there will be grass at that time when they make that circle and bring the peace on earth. There will be blades of grass that have not quite come through the earth. Even they will try to push themselves up to be part of that day when the sun rises. The elders explain it like this: out here, outside this building, long before there was a fair ground here there were Native people. They say many of these Native people in different tribes were aware of these things, and they told the children. Their children grew up.

    You know, one time the scientist came to the Hopis and they said, “We want to take a piece of the stone tablets.” They said “We want to take the stone tablets to a scientific laboratory to determine how old they are.” The Hopis said, “We know how old they are”. Well, the scientists said, “We want to confirm it.” Well, the Hopis let them take a little piece, and they did that by

    the carbon dating method. They found these tablets were at least 10,000 years old, maybe 50,000. So when I say, “Thousands of years ago, there were Native people that spoke of these things,” that’s exactly what I mean. They told their

    children and thousands of years ago, their children grew up and told their children, and then their children grew up and told their children. And they spoke about the people that will live in this time.

    And now it is us. We are the ones they spoke of long ago. They say to be alive, to come into creation and to live upon the earth at this time is a great honor.

    In the cycle of time, from the beginning to the end, this time we are in now will change the purification of all things. They say this is the hardest time to live, but it is also the greatest honor to be alive to live and see this.

    In the state of Washington in 1855 they signed treaties and made 22 Indian reservations. They wanted to do it before there were problems. They thought they were advanced at the time, they had learned from what had happened elsewhere. They made 22 Indian reservations and the elders spoke in 1855 and they said, “We’re going to become weaker, and you are going to become stronger, and if you wish to break these treaties, you may do so.” They said, “But there’s going to come a time when the earth itself will rise up and purify itself and this will be announced. It will be announced by the speaking of more than 16 Great Ones on the West Coast of this land. And when the 16 Great Ones speak, the purification will have begun. There was a new [?] five years ago when Mt. Saint Helens, one of the 16 great volcanoes on the West Coast of this land, “spoke”. The Seattle Times did a special interest story. They went over to Watson Totus and Woodrow Bill. It was Woodrow Bill’s son that made this hoop that I brought here today, my good brother Randolf Bill. They asked Watson Totus and Woodrow Bill as spiritual people of the Yakuma nation, “What does this mean?” What they said was so profound that they didn’t put it on page 16, they put it on the front page of the Seattle Times. They said, “This means that the races and nations of the earth should slow down and come together and talk to each other.” That’s exactly what it meant. And we had four years and four days to do that.
    Four years and four days later, Mt. Saint Helens erupted the second time. That was last spring, just about this time. That was our grace period. We could have still done something really good. But now things are going to speed up. Now things are going to really happen fast. Time is going to go so fast. The more we share the Message, the more we will cushion the Third Shaking of the Earth, and the easier it will be on ourselves and others.
    We are now within the purification of all things. Non-Natives call this the “Apocalypse”. The Native elders call this the “Purification”. I want to share one non-Native prophecy with you. There was a seer in Europe whose name was Nostradamus. I’m sure many of you have heard of him. He foresaw three Great Shakings of the Earth. He said the Third Great Shaking will begin when Lesser Arabia and Persia engage in a war. Five years ago, when Mt. Saint Helens went off, Iraq attacked Iran. Lesser Arabia today is called Iraq. Persia is called Iran. These two prophecies coincide. Both the Native elders and Nostradamus said this will start slowly, almost unnoticed by the people of the earth, but it will eventually involve us all. Eventually the “gourd of ashes” will fall from the sky so muck that the river that runs through the center of this [?], the Mississippi River, will boil from the heat of the “gourds of ashes” that will fall on this land. But don’t despair. It sounds terrible, but we will survive it. We will live through it. I don’t think there’s anyone chosen to live through it, but some people will.

  2. Simple, when faced with the problem of piling a load of stone on top of each other you get similar results, there is only one way to do things, look at the concord and the tu144 as an example, the buran and the shuttle etc.

  3. Graham Hancocks’ “Fingerprints of the Gods” is a great read for this type of speculation. Atlantis and her allegedly far superior inhabitants escaped the island when it sank due to some kind of catastrophe and fled to the coasts of the nearest lands on either side of the Atlantic to rebuild. Secrets of construction were not the only things they were way ahead of the normal people in, that is just what could not be demolished. Too big. Too remote. No way to erase this from history but the knowledge is still known to the keepers of it.
