A Few Notes:

I actually posted a few weeks ago on my Facebook page about finding an astrolobe (ancient Egyptian)  navigational technology artifact. I didn’t find it literally, I simply discovered that our ancient ancestors had such technology and used this to navigate from the African contingent (Verde Islands)  to the Americas including (Cuba, Central America, Honduras, Belize, Guatemala, the Southern Gulf Coast, Mexico, the Yucatan, the Azore Islands, Bermuda regions). I will provide a new post connecting the mastery of trade as I learn more. I have read in several books how our ancestors were trading in the orient along the Silk Road,  as well as in the Americas from the Gulf Coast. When I visited Mexico, the archeology sites noted this was historical evidence. So I will in a later post provide research that link these ancient African and American civilizations to trade and commerce.

I was astounded that this was discovered and yet not in any of my anthropological books! I was reading a book called, “Discovering the Mysteries of Ancient America” by Joseph Frank and was purely astounded at what our American and foreign academic institutions seem to suppress, omit, and hide from our scholarship. This must be on purpose! To discredit, deny and hide the genius of the dark colored race on this planet. Why else would this be hidden? Sad but truth!

Problem

We are instead left in the dark about our place in global history and the genius our many tribal people had on this planet.  Instead we are taught a narrative that is negative from its conception that denote the “black” in the Americas and abroad as inferior, and incapable of governing themselves or managing their resources and land! This does not stop with only the “white” or caucasian race, but as much as part of the “black” and pan African mind. Today there is a huge divide in consciousness about our origins, our global history, our human history, our American – African history to the Americas.  The old narrative is beginning to break up and many people of awakening to not only the truth but the evidence that is readily available to all who dare to pick up a book and read. Maybe this is why it was against the law in America for “blacks’ and slaves to read!

Personally, I’ve had “black” African “Facebook friends” feel offended by my posting of any evidence or facts on America’s autochthonic roots, i.e., that we were here before Columbus and that we were not solely brought to the Americas by slave ship. I often ask and wonder “why” is this so offensive to other so called black people?

Solutions

We must begin to expand our consciousness on this planet. We have to begin to acknowledge that we have a complex history on this planet that also include star or planetary origins, which pushes the scope of consciousness even further out of the normal sphere of understanding or acceptance. Many tribes around the globe attest to our ancient cosmic origins like the Hopi, Dogon, the Zulus, Egyptians, Mayans, aboriginals of Australia, and many, many more.

Focus on evidence

Perhaps this cosmic origin  is for another post, at this moment I will concentrate my focus on this one ‘find’ that our ancestors did indeed navigate these waters, the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, etc and brought civilization, writing, astronomy, cosmology, religion, spirituality, metallurgy, the sciences, yoga, the arts, medicine, architecture, magic, technology, and agriculture to these regions. They were the first to inhabit the corners of the world and I’m astounded as I continue independent studies at just how vast and deep these autochthonic cultures existed and the very regions (continents) they inhabited.  For now, I will focus on the astrolobe and share my findings with the family.

Neibra (Nebra) Disk Ancient Maritime Aeronautical Technology and Discovery of the West (the Americas, ie Transatlantic Navigational Routes)

Bronze Age – 18th Dynasty

The Nebra sky disk is a bronze disk of around 30 centimeters (12 in) diameter and a weight of 2.2 kilograms (4.9 lb), with a blue-green patina and inlaid with gold symbols. These are interpreted generally as a sun or full moon, a lunar crescent, and stars (including a cluster interpreted as the Pleiades). Two golden arcs along the sides, marking the angle between the solstices, were added later. A final addition was another arc at the bottom surrounded with multiple strokes (of uncertain meaning, variously interpreted as a Solar Barge with numerous oars, as the Milky Way, or as a rainbow).

Through the use of encoded latitudes such as these, the Niebra Disc reveals itself as an ancient astrolabe. It was a navigational instrument that enabled Bronze Age sea-farers to complete their transatlantic voyages to and from America millennia before this device was reinvented in the High Middle Ages. The discovery of this sin gular artifact shows that pre-Classical sailors were, in fact, aided by a maritime technology sufficiently advanced to allow successful round-trip expeditions between the Old and New Worlds many centuries before Columbus.

Let us assume that the “boat” is upright on the ocean, with the moon near the eastern horizon, and the Sun moving toward the west. Usually, in megalithic petroglyphs, the center of the eastern horizon is the Straits of Gibraltar, on the coast of the Old World. The Tropic of Cancer leaves the continent of Africa at 23 degrees North, synonymous for the disc’s 23 stars. This is the historic place they wanted to cross the ocean in honor of the sun-god, Ra.

3 STARS (STARS #1, #2,#3) – AFRICA- CAPE VERDE ISLANDS

In the bowl, or “boat” image

on the Niebra Disc are three

stars (1, 2, 3) which correspond

to the three island groups of

the Cape Verde Islands, off the

West African coast. Below the

centers of the Sun and the

Moon are 15 stars, the latitude

of the most southern Cape

Verde Islands (15 degrees

north), and the sailing direction

from there, 15 degrees west

south west, to South America,

as well as Cape Gracias-a-Dios,

the east Cape of Honduras,

also at 15 degrees north.

#15 STAR- CENTRAL AMERICA

15 degrees north, 15 degrees West, 15 degrees north

The 15th star touches the western

horizon, where the culture of

Central America begins.

30 STARS — CORRECT LENGTH OF SOUTHERN CROSSING (30dl, 39 degrees = 3,333 kilometers

The Disc’s 30 stars comprise the

correct length of the Southern

Crossing, 30dl (distance lines),

or 30 degrees, equal to 3,333 kilometers.

STAR #15 MAYA CEREMONY POSITION (HONDURAS, BELIZE, GUATEMALA)

STARS #16, #17 – OLMEC CIVILIZATION@ Gulf of Campeche at 18 degrees north.

On the left side of the Sun is

another star (15), the position

of which is associated with

Maya ceremonial centers along

the North Coast of Honduras,

Belize, and Guatemala at 16 de-

grees north.

Above them are two more stars (17, 18) at the center of Olmec Civilization near the southern basin of the Gulf of Campeche at 18 degrees north.

STARS #19,#20  – NORTH BORDER OLMEC CIVILIZATION @ Southern Coast Gulf Campeche (i.e.,

Gibraltar at 36 degrees north)

Above these, are two

more stars (19, 20), bordering

the northern border of the

Olmec world at 20 degrees

north. The center of the western

horizon (formerly in gold on

the Niebra Disc) corresponds

to the southern coast of the

Gulf of Campeche and is clearly

situated on the artifact west

south west of the center on the

eastern horizon. It thus agrees

with latitudes for Gibraltar at 36

degrees north, confirming the

discovery of America before the

1600 B.C. date for the Niebra

Disc).

STAR #21 — YUCATÁN (NORTHEAST)

21 degrees North

At its top appears the 21st

star (21) corresponding to the

northeast Cape of Yucatan at 21

degrees north.

#22 STAR – CUBA (22degrees North)

The 22nd star gives the latitude of southwest Cuba at 22 degrees north. If the group of seven stars did, in

fact, signify the Constellation of

the Pleiades, their appearance

in the sky may have coincided

the end of the sailing season

each late autumn.

#22 STAR — #23 STAR — AZORE ISLANDS **

#32 —- BERMUDA *** 😉 32 degrees North

They likewise join two more adjacent stars (22, 23) to form the Azore Islands. The moon on the Disc then corresponds to Madeira. If we count two more stars be-

hind the eastern horizon of the

gold object (15, 16), their total

number would be 32, encoding

the latitude of Bermuda at 32

degrees North.

DISCOVERY

The disk, two bronze swords, two hatchets, a chisel, and fragments of spiral bracelets were discovered in 1999 by Henry Westphal and Mario Renner.

IMG_1848
Swords found with Nebra Disc made of bronze. The precise dating of the Nebra sky disk depended upon the dating of a number of Bronze Age weapons, which were offered for sale with the disk and said to be from the same site. These axes and swords can be dated typologically to the mid 2nd millennium BC. Radiocarbon dating of a birchbark particle found on one of the swords to between 1600 and 1560 BC confirmed this estimate. This corresponds to the date of burial, at which time the disk had likely been in existence for several generations. Source: Wikipedia, Nebra Sky Disks
