Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua (Rapa Nui) is just very, very strange. I’m not talking about the people of Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua, who are, in my opinion, a very handsome race of humans. I’m talking about the oddities which surround the entire area where they live, and in the process of clarifying what is, in my mind, very puzzling, I am going to attempt to list all the strangeness about Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua—things that stick out like huge sore thumbs to me and generate more questions than they answer. It seems as if the more I observe and dig into their nature, the more questions I generate, but I will do my best to lay it all out. First off…
1. What’s up with all those heads!?!
I am not going to go into detail of how they were able to carve these statues with their non-existent tools, or even how they got the megalithic structures out of the quaries and into place. Those questions have been asked thousands of times, with little resolution that make any sense other than that their technology must have been more advanced in long lost history. I want to know why they all have huge heavy Neanderthal brows and huge elongated noses and ears, with that strange fish-hook-shaped curl to their nostrils. They all have thin lips that protrude in a pout and the jaw lines are huge and stand out against their short stumpy necks.
If we compare the anatomy of the skull of a Neanderthal (left), as compared to a Cro Magnon (right), the moais seem more closely representing a Neanderthal being, as opposed to a Cro Magnon being.
The more exciting aspect of this Neanderthal slant is that, as of the summer of 2011, genetic testings have confirmed that all non- Africans are part Neanderthal* (which then begs the question—why? More to come as part of my future exploration of this ponderous issue). This means that those who did the stone art were possibly carving the images of their own ancestors or even contemporaries into the rocks, and those carvers may not be the ones who are currently inhabiting the island. Why am I making such a claim?
Let’s take a look at their stonework.
2. Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua’s stonework should be elevated to the same ingenious quality as that of ancient stone buildings in the Andes because it is built in precisely the same manner. the picture to the left is from Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua, (Rappa Nui). The picture on the right is from Sacsayhuaman in the Andes.
The tell-tale mark of the craftsman is identical in both structures. It looks to me as if the builders took the rocks, placed them roughly in the position that they want the rock to inhabit, and then did something stupendously fabulous to melt the edges so that they fuse together seamlessly, without the need for mortar. These structures were so well-made that they have stood in place, all these thousands of years, without falling apart, without crumbling, and without any maintenance efforts on the part of its inhabitants, whether past or present.
Furthermore, many of the megalithic stone walls on Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua predate the current natives whose archaeological records of bones and tools date only to about 700 AD. What this means is that somebody built those ancient stone walls, and those somebodies were present at Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua long before the current indigenous population got there.
3. Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua has a strange shape. Its geology is triangular in shape due to the three volcanoes that created each corner, Poike, Rano Kau, and Terevaka. When viewed in 3D, it is more pyramidal.
I’ll get to the weird part about this later on in the post, but for now, just hang onto the fact that it really is a significant shape for an island.
4. Nothing fires up my imagination more than an undecipherable language, and Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua definitely has an undeciphered written language called Rongo Rongo. This is especially significant
since no other neighboring oceanic people had a written language.
Rongo Rongo was rooted out by the Spanish missionaries who sought to exorcise all that was pagan from the indigenous people living there. In the process of trying to convert everyone to Christianity, the
missionaries wiped out the indigenous’ written works and they are now a people with amnesia. Other than their oral traditions, they are no longer able to refer to their few remaining vestiges of documented written history to recover their past heritage.
5. The next oddity is not an ancient structure, but a very modern one. Imagine a tiny little place out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with a runway that is large enough to land a space shuttle. Why would anyone build such a huge airport to a tiny insignificant land mass in the middle of nowhere?
My opinion is, Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua is not insignificant, and it is definitely not in the middle of nowhere. It lies directly in the center of what is known by many as a ‘vile vortex’ (more on that in a later post).
According to David Zink*, the Te Pito o Te Henua ‘vile vortex’ lies at the 47 degree Earth grid. It is the center point of five vortexes all converging at that exact spot, and those within the center of power structures understand its significance.
They were willing to build and maintain a space port on the island because they needed to be able to come and go easily, towards the one area in the Pacific that is an important junction towards something else…something far more amazing—something right out of the legends of time.
Legends tell of a large continent that submerged under the waves during a great earthquake. Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua, along with the chain of Indonesian islands which stretch all the way to Australia, is
said to be part of a few remaining mountain peaks of this sunken continent. This earthquake shook up world plates, submerging some areas into the ocean while pushing up other areas which had been
previously underwater so high up that they are now the tallest water structures in the world.
Ojos del Salado (Eyes of Salt) is just such a structure. It boasts of being the highest lake in the world, and having the highest active volcano on the southeast side of the border between Chile and Argentina. The force which caused Ojos del Salado to rise up out of the ocean depths also had the power to push an entire continent down into the waters of the Pacific Ocean. We find that evidence directly underneath our feet.
Rocks found on Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua and other Pacific Islands within the same region, are made of continental crust, not oceanic crust. Te-Pito-o-Te-Henua’s volcanic rocks consist mainly of basalt and andesite and a small amount of rhyolite. Keep in mind that andesitic volcanoes are supposed to form along the edge of a continent, above a mythical subduction zone, yet, Te Pito o Te Henua is 3,600 kilometers from the nearest continent.
This all points to the very real possibility that there exists, under the Pacific Oceans, remnants of a highly advanced culture. If we can ever get the truth out, it would be history-changing, and it would do much to lift the veil of our historical ignorance, or as Graham Hancock puts it, “…we are a species with amnesia”.
