Earth’s mysterious treasures

QUESTION: Masters, there are so many amazing ancient mysterious monoliths around planet Earth. Perhaps you would consider writing a book explaining their origins and purposes. But until then, are there any overall similarities between any of the gigantic stone structures that seem to have been carved and lifted and placed with such incredible precision? There’s the Aswan Obelisk and the Sphinx in Egypt, Puma Punku in Tiahuanaco, the Moai heads of Easter Island, and Gornaya Shoria in Siberia, to name a few. Then there are the perfectly formed stone petrospheres in Russia, Peru, Polynesia, and New Zealand. And there are pyramids not only in Egypt but in Bosnia, Sudan, Indonesia, Korea, China, South America, Cambodia, Iran, and Iraq as well. Are they related? What was their original purpose? ~Alissa, USA

ANSWER: Since the creation of planet Earth, there have been many different civilizations on its surface. They have not all been accounted for in the historical writings of mankind. Groups of people have come, evolved throughout their history, and then disappeared – such as the Mayans, Atlanteans, ancient Egyptians – and a plethora of documented societies that just vanished: the Olmec, Mycenean, Clovis, Anasazi,  Nabatean, and Indus Valley peoples, to mention just a few.

All of these societies were humanoid, and most archeologists can document evolutionary trends from their excavated villages. When scientists have found things they cannot explain (e.g., many of those to which you have referred) using the standardly accepted procedures of verification, they just switch back to something that can be quantified and validated by them.

The first premise of all these scientists is that no civilization prior to your current one was any more technologically advanced than yours. Spoiler alert to all persons who believe Earth is the only occupied planet in your solar system: several other life forms from “out there” have visited and lived on the Earth.

Most of these peoples were more advanced than current man, evidenced by the fact that they transported themselves from their home planet to yours. They came for all different reasons. Some came to gather minerals from the planet, some to colonize a new place, some to study the evolutionary process taking place on Earth, and some out of curiosity. They entertained themselves with building things that still remain. There are those who left on their own and several who were affected by natural disasters.
