This isn’t really your most recent episode of Unsolved Mysteries. Actually, these are generally five authentic skulls dug up and discovered from nearly every corner of the globe. If the skulls are in fact of human origin has been put up for debate by some. Either way, these anomalies will either give you a great costume idea, inspiration to go on your own Indian Jones-style adventure, or just provide a reason for some really freaky dreams.
These strangely-shaped skulls have been causing quite a stir since their discovery in 1928. The 300+ skulls have been dated at over 3,000 years old and some researchers believe this discovery warrants a change in the accepted anthropological paradigms.
While many cultures practiced head binding in order to achieve an elongated head, these particular skulls seem to have a different story. While head binding modifies the shape of the head, it cannot increase the cranial volume in any significant way.
So how can we explain the fact that the Paracas skulls are 25% larger and 60% heavier than regular human skulls?
In an attempt to shed some light on this mystery, a series of DNA tests were arranged by the Director of the Paracas Museum of History. Samples of skin, hair, teeth and bone fragments were sent to a genetic laboratory for analysis and the results were amazing.
As it turns out, the skulls belonged to a very distant relative of Homo sapiens. The mitochondrial DNA presented mutations that were never found in any other human beings.
The Horned Skull
During an archaeological dig in Sayre, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in the 1880s, a number of human skulls were unearthed. These skeletons were anatomically correct, except for the anomaly of their projections, two inches above the eyebrow, and the fact that their average height in life would have been around seven feet tall. The bones were sent to the American Investigating Museum in Philadelphia, where they were stolen – never to be seen again.
The “horned giants” of Sayre is an urban legend concerning a series of skeletons that included a horned skull reportedly discovered during the 1880s by the then-state historian, Dr. G.P. Donehoo, and two visiting professors, A.B. Skinner and W.K. Moorehead while excavating a burial mound.
The skeletons were reported to be at or above 7 feet (2.1 m) in height, possessing skulls that had horn-like protuberances just above the eyebrows, but were claimed to have been lost, misplaced, or stolen while in route to the American Investigation Museum. Neither Donehoo, Skinner, nor Moorehead described the discovery of any human skeletons at Sayre exhibiting gigantism or horned protrusions in their official excavation reports
Bulgarian Alien Skulls
The mysterious skull and metal fragments were found in the southern Bulgarian Rhodopes on 21.05.2001 . They brought a lot of excitement in south-eastern Europe , for scientists like UFO buffs .
He has the size of a baby head. 6 holes in it , and none since where one must suspect the mouth . Thinner and lighter (250g) than bone in humans. The skull was a resident of 38 years in Plovdiv, he remains anonymous. He showed his find to a small circle of interested paranormal .
The Bulgarian archaeologist Katja Malamet discussed the original article in the Turkish newspaper Milliyet . She had never seen such a thing . There is nothing comparable or an analogy to other known science hominids , the director of the Paleontological Museum in Asenovgrad .
Prof. Yordan Yordanov The anthropologist believes the skull does not resemble any Fund in the last 30 million years.
This peculiar skull was found in a mine tunnel, 100 miles Southwest of Chihuahua. Dental analysis have ascertained that the skull is that of a five year old child. However, the interior of the skull is 20cm larger than the average adult cranial cavity. The optic nerve is situated at the bottom of the eye socket, rather than the back.
The back of the skull is flattened, but not by artificial means. Carbon dating places the skull’s age at approximately 1100 BCE. DNA testing has determined that the child had a human mother, but useful lengths of nuclear DNA for further testing could not be recovered. In 2004, Royal Holloway College of the University of London revealed â€œfibersâ€ in the bone of the skull and a reddish residue, neither of which are known or recorded to exist prior to the discovery.
The Starchild skull is an abnormal human skull allegedly found in Mexico that was claimed to be the product of extraterrestrial-human breeding or genetic manipulation. Mitochondrial DNA recovered from the skull has established it as human. Neurologist Steven Novella believes it to be the skull of a child who died as a result of congenital hydrocephalus.
The analysis didn’t show that the Starchild skull was a space alien since the study of DNA is done by comparing new samples with old samples of genetic material. We don’t have any alien DNA of file. Instead, the results revealed that the Starchild had a distinctly human mother but a non-human father. In short, it was what scientists call a hybrid.
Crystal skulls are a metaphor that reality is a consciousness hologram through which we experience virtually. Many of the crystal skulls are tools that awaken human consciousness, referenced by the human brain design of the crystal and the metaphoric eyes.
A crystal skull is a model of a human skull generally made out of quartz crystal, but not always, as in the case of Chinese jade skulls. Crystal skulls vary in size from a few inches to the size of a human head, or bigger. The age of a skull can be equated not so much to the year it was carved, or the place of origin, but to the age of the crystal from which it was created, some crystals being thousands of years old, while others are more contemporary. Crystal skulls are most often associated with ancient Mesoamerican cultures, especially the Maya which takes us to the Mayan Long Calendar and related prophecies.
Humanity has always been on an esoteric journey to solve the mysteries of its creation linked to people and objects that allegedly contain higher powers, or can enhance those of the questor. Technology and the Internet help move consciousness to that place, with great precession, as if it was all part of a cosmic plan. We can sense the truth, soon to be revealed, about who we are and why we are here.
The enigmatic crystal skulls have become another tool of divination to that end, crystals sometimes been thought of as having magical powers, as well as transmitters and receivers of energy.
