They also include the enigmatic, mountaintop city of Tiahuanaco, with its extraordinary Sun-Temple Gate and Calendar, by Lake Titicaca 13,000 feet up in Bolivia. Manco Capac, the legendary god-founder of Cuzco and the great Peruvian civilization, arrived mysteriously on an island in the lake after a great flood, according to a myth accepted by the conquering Incas from the more ancient local races. Lewis Spence describes this in “the Problem of Lemuria” on pages 195-8; he also points out the similarity between Tiahuanaco’s architecture and that of Easter Island, and between Manco Capac and Easter Island’s founding hero, Hotu Matua. Although the famous Easter Island statues are A. D. in date, they may again reflect distant racial memories of prehistoric practices. The Tiahuanaco ruins are certainly very ancient: H.S.Bellamy, in the now rare work “Built Before the Flood: the Problem of the Tiahuanaco Ruins”, published by Faber and Faber in 1943, argues like others, that the evidence of calcified remains of marine plants 11,500 feet up on the plateau shows that it was originally at sea level, and therefore predates the great catastrophe and flood.

Bellamy ascribes this to a great planetary girdle-tide. This raised the sea-level by over two miles on either side of the Equator, caused in turn by a predecessor of our Moon orbiting into Earth; an even greater catastrophe was caused by its impact, which also destroyed Atlantis and the remains of Lemuria. Though this, based in Hans Hoerbiger’s cosmological theory popular before the war, is not now fashionable, it is one explanation of the sea-fossils and the extraordinary height of Tiahuanaco, in rarified air not easy for westerners to breathe. (Others, like Otto MUck, argue that the effects of the asteroid impact created the Andes by raising its whole landmass from sea-level!) Bellamy’s book is based largely on the work of Professor Arturo Posnansky, who lived among, or near, the ruins for several decades and made detailed surveys at a time when far more of the buildings still existed; they have been systematically vandalized. (Most writers on sites, if they visit at all, do so briefly only. ) It also records (pages 41-2) the legends of the (then) local Indians, a proud and quiet people calling themselves “Urus”, “Men of the Light”, who hinted that they had lived in these Bolivian highlands before the Age of Darkness (Chamak-Pacha), a terrible cataclysm, and that they remember the time when the Sun re-appeared after it. The great ruined city, for which “Tiahuanaco” was the traditional local name, was built before this cataclysm, and was by a great sea rich in big fish; eventually there was a flood which destroyed the city’s builders.

The Spanish conquistadores were told a slightly different Inca legend: Thousands of years after the original Creation of humanity by their god-creator, Viracocha Pachacayachi, there was a catastrophe from which only a shepherd and his family escaped: he, as a thank-offering, built Tiahuanaco in a single night. Its date is much disputed, and estimates vary profusely, ranging from a thousand to many thousands of years old, The ruins are now pitifully depleted, but clearly show advanced knowledge, including the Akapana, or Hill of Sacrifices, a huge truncated pyramid 167′ x 496′ x 650′, perfectly squared with the cardinal points of the compass. There is a reservoir system with stone pipes, and of course the great Temple of the Sun, with its sophisticated calendar. It is built of 60-ton blocks and rests on 100-200-ton blocks, transported 30-90 miles from quarry sites on an island in Lake Titicaca!

This massive-stone phenomenon is of course found all over the world, e. g. Stonehenge, Baalbek, Egypt and also in some of the recent underwater Atlantean discoveries. It shows a worldwide massive megalithic culture reflecting amazing powers of organization, precision, perseverance, mathematics, astronomy and, perhaps, even what would now be regarded as paranormal powers over gravity to lighten heavy objects. This great prehistoric advanced megalithic culture, which according to Plato included metal-working, ocean-going ships, astronomy, complex government, cities, mathematics, exquisite arts and highly productive agriculture, seems to have penetrated most of the world, including Africa, Scandinavia and even Siberia and Mongolia.
