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.

The difference between the amplitude marked in the Sun Tiahyanaco Kalasasaya and the amplitude in is 36′ 24″. During the Third Reich was requested by Heinrich Himmler to take a team of researchers from the Ahnenerbe to continue his studies at Tiahuanaco but the expedition was called off. I tiahuanzco we will have to tiayuanaco settlements in the southern polar region to confirm that theory. I have now published my new book, Joining The Dots, which offers a fresh look at the Atlantis mystery.

Others have expanded on her work, but usually in Spanish. During his time in the Imperial and Tiahuznaco Academy of Pola, he made several extensive training voyages, which took him many places, including the Easter Islands in the South Pacific Oceanas a part of his shipboard training. Posnansky’s claims, despite having been mostly discarded by mainstream archaeologists and scholars, have since then caught the interest of many crackpots and pseudoscientists.

Since the most southern glacial period of Sweden, or, alongside of Central Europe, took place some 13, to 15, years ago, by analogy one can judge that, in the same latitudes, and at the same levels above the sea, in both North and South America, the same thing occurred.

Since these ruins were already debris in the period of the Inca Empire, capricious commentaries and conjectures were made about their existence and the men who built them, and especially about their age. The erosion of the blocks of the First Period which are exclusively of red sandstone and of their very primitive sculptures on a calcareous volcanic tufa, show an abrasion extending over thousands of years.

The Antarctic theory is dependent on the acceptance of a number of hotly debated fundamentals, among which are: After settling in Bolivia, Posnansky repeatedly traveled the Bolivian and Peruvian highlands in efforts to locate, describe, and study Inca and pre-Inca archaeological sites.

To the south of the lake are remarkable archaeological remains of Tiwanaku and the equally exciting Puma Punku. Even today, after a devastation of forty years, some remains are still found, although they are not as abundant as in that period.

Had Allen not done posnanky, I suspect that Morrison might have produced a more detailed book himself as apparently he and a colleague, Mark Howell, had built up quite a dossier on the subject.

The glacial Andean lake, or as d’Orbigny calls it, the “inner sea”, certainly reached in the Posnanskt Period and unquestionably in the Third, as far as the edges of the monuments of Tihuanacu. The most important thing in this little shrine, which we have poosnansky to call “sanctum sanctorum”, is, in the first place, a block of trachyte which now is split, located in the most prominent part of the place and which until now we have called “observation block”, fig 26 Fig Still later, in the period in which these ruins served as a quarry for the construction of the church in the modern village of Tihuanacu, the rest of the alluvia which still covered the ruins was removed.

From this fact it can be presumed that no great space of time intervened between one period and the other. There are many probabilities for believing that Puma-Punku was almost completely covered by a dumping of alluvia which was swept away in part by very old searchings dating from much before the Conquest. Fig 30 Since we have exhausted the subject of the astronomical angles of the Second Period of Tihuanacu, it is necessary to consider the angles of the construction which is within the Kalasasaya of the Third Period.

His work has recently been highlighted in a book [ ] by Rafael Videla Eissmann as well as in a series of papers on his website a. But it did not happen thus; no memory has remained of that epoch; already at the time of the Conquest, the Indians, when asked regarding the age of Tihuanacu, replied that those monuments had always been there or that they had appeared on the dawn of a very remote day or that they were constructed by a race of giants, called “Huaris”, before Chamak-pacha.

There is no doubt but that if sensible excavations were carried out, various others would be discovered. There one sees, for example, the monumental south platform of the First Period which shows such erosion that it gives the appearance of a rough stone just removed from the quarry, since the details of the staircase embossments are almost completely erased; the other platform to the north shows an abrasion not yet so complete. 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.

Even today during periods of intense rain in periods of minimum sun spots they are covered with water and can not be distinguished from the lake which, we must not forget, is nothing more than the remains of the great glacial lake which, during the flowering of Tihuanacu, reached the gates of this metropolis.

They are the following: Many of these claims did not originate overnight and can be traced back to a man named Arthur Posnansky, an engineer and amateur archaeologist who visited the site and did some research on it during the s.


The Altiplano at the time of Tihuanacu’s height did not show the inclination toward the south which it now has, and the lake then extended over all the land which now constitutes that region; that is, over all the enormous basin enclosed by the Andes.

Most of the claims made by alternative historians and pseudoarchaeologists revolve around the dating of Tiwanaku, the advanced stonemasonry displayed in its construction and its apparent “cataclysmic destruction”.

During these expeditions, he became an experienced navigator of it and its tributaries. There are also reports of pre-Incan structures submerged in Titicaca d. This was the same year that Jim Allen published his Atlantis: Also approximately at the center of the building, let us say at the middle arthkr the monumental perronthe sun appears on the morning of the equinoxes.

New York, New York. These in the main have proceeded in a parallel fashion, since for more than two years we have discussed the different “working hypotheses”. As we have said, the building was located, during the period of its apogee, exactly on the astronomical meridian, and this is an orientation which it preserves almost exactly today.

Around the same time there was a media report claiming the discovery of three pyramids in Antarctica! Little by little, or rather, century by century, the northern part of the present Altiplano and mountain ranges rose as a result of the cessation of the aforementioned weight of the ice, and it was then that there was produced an initial inclination which drained the first great glacial lake.

Published October 9, Much before and also after the studies undertaken by the author begun before scholars and others who laid claim to such a title, thought of determining the age of the remains of remote periods through the principles of astronomy.

The idea may have gone down well with Himmler but was derided by the scientific community at large. It seems, moreover, that a certain number of them were reconstructed and renovated during the Third Period, a period in which use was made of the works of former times.

This place, then, is the most elevated one in the plsnansky of the temple and without doubt designates the most important place of the “sanctum sanctorum”. Owing then to this protective layer which covered the ruins of Puma-Punkuthese suffered relatively little wearing away, as we note in some blocks.
