Tihuanacu: The Cradle of American Man [Prof. Ing. Arthur Posnansky] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. By Dave Truman Arthur Posnansky enjoys a rather ambiguous status in remains of Tiwanaku (Tiahuanaco) and the surrounding Altiplano of the High Andes. T iwanaku (T iahuanaco) is an ancient city whose remains are located over two miles above sea level near the southern end of Lake Titicaca.

This difference has served as the basis for the calculation of the tjahuanaco of Tihuanacu. Around the same time there was a media report claiming the discovery of three pyramids in Antarctica! View online Borrow Buy. He also described the ruins of Tiwanaku as bearing the traces of a great cataclysm, which he concluded was how the city had been destroyed and abandoned. While many of his conclusions may now appear purely speculative, in fact, Rengifo thought his views would eventually be vindicated by archaeology.

Published October 9, Versucb einer astronomischen AllersbestimmungBerlin, Dietrich Reimer, But this is the case only at the present time, because the terraces of possnansky artificial hill of Akapana which formerly were supported by retaining walls, are crumbled.

La Trobe University Library.

This figure would constitute the probable age of Tihuanacu in the “Second Period” and some what less in the “Third Period. The average of our many observations of the angle of solar amplitude established by the priest – astronomers in the Kalasasaya of the second period is: JJ Augustin ; Vols.

On the other hand his early dates for Tiwanaku are serious challenged by Orser b and Heinrich c. Posnansky also noted that the expected alignments of structures at Tiwanaku were offset by an amount which suggested their construction at a time when they would have been correctly aligned with respect to the cardinal points.

It is to be noted that at that tiahuanaxo the line of sight passed perfectly through the reentrant angle of the first terrace and that was especially the case when the observation point at the center of the wall of the Second Period was at a height, as in fact it was, as is indicated by the above mentioned base which was discovered.

This is an important fact and one which leads to the conclusion that this structure which we have called the “sanctum sanctorum” was the solar observatory of the Third Period of Tihuanacu.

It would involve a long discussion to enter into details about this aspect and we wish only to touch on it lightly because of its pposnansky interest. The difference between the amplitude marked in the Sun Temple Kalasasaya and the amplitude in is 36′ 24″.

This figure would be the arthud to apply it in the curve which tiauuanaco constructed, according to the formula of the International Conference of Ephemerids in Paris inwhich is as follows: May not be open to the public ; F Then, that this mighty army from ten regions of South America were tiiahuanaco by the small city-state of Athens is just as laughable.


The calculations based on this figure indicate a rather old age in posnanskyy light of our manner of thinking today in archaeological matters; if there were not many other coefficients, not astronomical but of another sort, which corroborate in an unequivocal and unquestionable manner the enormous age posnsnsky Tihuanacuand which we shall discuss at the end of the present chapter, it would not have been worth while to go so deeply into the astronomical studies posnnansky took more than a quarter of a century of the writer’s life.

Although not directly connect to the Antarctic-Atlantis debate, the late French mariner Robert Argod has given us a fascinating book [ tiahuanacp that supports the idea that the Polynesians originated in Antarctica and that their influence is to be found further afield.

However, since the strand lines which show what at one time constituted the arthjr of the great Lake Titicaca, are 44 m. He does not directly enter the Atlantis debate but the evidence he adduces to support his thesis are more usually employed to support the Atlantis in Antarctica viewpoint.

This matter of Chamak-pacha in Aymara or Purin-pacha in Keshua is extremely interesting. In the light of this discussion it is very difficult to think that the culture of man on the Altiplano and the construction of his magnificent metropolis belongs to a relatively recent epoch.

Which is on the point of 15, years B. At this time, he was deeply involved in cognate studies. We have not the least doubt that some day our measurements 99 will be controlled by competent geodesists or astronomers and possibly certain errors or omissions will be rectified, which escaped us through faulty personal judgments or for other reasons.

As I have alluded to above, it seems to me that those who promote the daft idea of an Antarctic Atlantis, do so in the knowledge that the icecap there is unlikely to disappear within their lifetime, which might reveal evidence for or against the proposition.

But the most interesting thing is that if one observes, at a distance of five meters toward the west of the aforementioned observation block, where there are still remains or a construction, the centers of the Kalasasayas 98 of the west balcony wall, one notes that the sun sets in the center of the pillars “A” and “K” at the solstices and on the dates noted on the accompanying diagram.

Oh no, there’s been an error

Another proof which we can bring to bear, and posnansjy greater reason, to prove the very great age of the culture of Tihuanacuis that connected with the great diffusion attained over the whole continent by the famous “Staircase Sign.


Since these ruins were already debris in the period of the Inca Empire, capricious commentaries and conjectures were made tiahuanwco their existence and the men who built them, and especially about their age. Eissmann believes that this suggests knowledge of an ancient Antarctic polar civilisation! A ntarctica takes its name from the Greek Anti Arktos, which means opposite the Arctic. I have addressed the critical questions of when, where and who, using Plato’s own words, tempered with some critical thinking and a modicum of common sense.

The idea may have gone down well with Himmler but was derided by the scientific community at large. Since the publication of the work, these ideas have since been discredited by later archaeological research.

On the basis of the above length and width of the “sanctum sanctorum”, the index of the latter is 89 instead of the 91 of the exterior building of the Second Period. However the earliest suggestion of Antarctica as the home of Atlantis seems to have come from a Chilean professor, Roberto Rengifowho also proposed, inthat Antarctica was the original home of modern man until a catastrophic pole shift forced a migration northward into the Americas and eventually worldwide!

He later wrote a brief refutation of the Antarctic theory aa. This spillway constituted the outlet for the artificial lake located on the surface of the pukara Akapana; it drained into the moat which, communicating with the lake, formed an island in the most posnqnsky part of the temple. He was born in Vienna, Austriaon April 13, But we feel certain that in the preceding paragraphs we have outlined in a clear and synthetic form, the nature of such proofs, which are: However, in any event, even leaving aside the calculation by astronomical methods, the age of Tihuanacu, a figure somewhere beyond ten thousand arhhur the age of the Second and Third periods will always be, on the basis of geology, paleontology and anthropology, tiqhuanaco great no matter by what method or standard it is judged.
