The famous A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ site of Stonehenge may have been built using the famous Pythagorean theorem two millennia before the mathematical equation was developed, experts say.
A new book titled “Megalith: Studies in Stone” argues that the same geometric principles of the famous work of Pythagoras can be found in the prehistoric site: in addition to the Stonehenge researchers, other experts claim to have found evidence of the famous theorem, long before time of Pythagoras. Last year, for example, scientists revealed the secrets of a mysterious 3,700-year-old Babylonian clay tablet, which turns out to be the trig table as well as the oldest and most accurate trig table in the world.
Pythagoras\’ discovery that the sum of the areas of two squares on the sides of a triangle will add up to the area of a square on the hypotenuse has been used for millennia to help builders achieve perfectly perfect angles.
The new book, published to coincide with yesterday\’s summer solstice, shows how within one of the earliest incarnations of Stonehenge, dating back to 2750 BC, there is a rectangle of four Sarsen stones, which divided in half diagonally, they form a perfect Pythagorean triangle.
The eight lines that radiate from the rectangle and triangles are also perfectly aligned with the important dates of the Neolithic calendar, such as the summer and winter solstices and the spring and autumn equinoxes.
Coordinator and editor John Matineau said, “People often think of our ancestors as crude cavemen, when in fact they were sophisticated astronomers. They were applying Pythagorean geometry over 2,000 years before the birth of Pythagoras. We see triangles and double squares used that they are simple versions of Pythagorean geometry. And then we have this synthesis on different sites of solar and lunar numbers ”.
Evolved humans or extra terrestrial intelligence?
According to some U̳F̳O̳logists and archaeologists, in A̳n̳c̳i̳e̳n̳t̳ iconography, aircraft and beings of anything other than human origin would often be depicted: given the particular shape of the temple, and the probable difficulty that the transport of boulders weighing approximately 4 tons would have entailed for populations dating back to about 5,000 years ago, the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ hypothesis has begun to take hold more and more.
According to the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ theory that would explain the particular location of these geometric tetrodes that rotate in the opposite direction within a spherical field, the conformation of Stonehenge would be a proof of the fact that e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳ beings wanted to create an astronomical calendar capable of predicting any type of celestial event and whose accuracy is compared only to modern instruments of astronomical analysis.
Furthermore, many have claimed to have seen over time, mysterious luminous spheres in the sky above the temple of Stonehenge: even the appearance of crop circles verified in the vicinity of the temple, for U̳F̳O̳logists, would be nothing more than the proof of the hand. a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ in the construction of the imposing religious structure.
