Teotihuacan - City of the Cosmos

Teotihuacan

The pyramids of Teotihuacán are located near Mexico City. It was long believed that they were the work of the Aztecs before discovering that they had been erected, several centuries before their arrival, by a people of whom we knew nothing until then and who conceived the whole city as a perfect representation of the sky.

The history of the city

In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, Teotihuacán means "Place of the Gods". As a result, it has long been thought that this city, the oldest in America, was built by this Indian people. However, the Aztecs did not arrive on the high plateau of Mexico until the fourteenth century. They founded their own city: Tenochtitlán, on the site of present-day Mexico. Teotihuacan is much older. When the Aztecs discovered it and used it as a place of worship, the city had already been abandoned for several centuries; the living quarters were destroyed and only majestic pyramids still stood there. Teotihuacan probably reached its peak between 150 and 600 AD. The city, then very rich, had about 200 000 inhabitants, which made it the sixth largest city of its time.

The circumstances of its decline are as obscure as those of its beginnings. Nobody knows exactly when the city was abandoned or why. Perhaps the harvests were no longer sufficient to sustain the inhabitants after a long period of drought, unless religious reasons were crucial. The city probably perished definitively around the year 700, after being looted by barbarians.

City of the cosmos

No one yet knows how the city of Teotihuacan was originally called, by whom it was built, or what inspired these impressive pyramids. One thing is certain: its builders were excellent architects and had very precise knowledge of astronomy. Indeed, Teotihuacán is a perfect representation of the sky. By studying the dimensions of the different buildings and their relationships, the American engineer Hugh Harleston was able to demonstrate, in the 1970s, that they corresponded, proportionally, exactly to the size and position of the planets Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus - and even Neptune and Pluto, discovered respectively in 1846 and 1930: Teotihuacán was therefore built in the image of our solar system.

The construction of the city

The site of Teotihuacán is dominated by the pyramid of the Sun, the pyramid of the Moon and the pyramid of Quetzalcoatl. The construction of the pyramid of the Sun has probably required more than 3,000 men for more than 30 years.

It is surrounded on both sides by smaller pyramids, themselves followed by a series of closed courtyards which were first thought to be tombs: hence its name of the Alley of the Dead. We know today that this hypothesis is false, because the inhabitants of Teotihuacán incinerated the deceased.

Several theories attempt to explain the function of this road. For the American engineer Alfred Schlemmer, these yards were originally pools filled with water, which reflected the sky and stars. For the Swiss author, Erich von Däniken, it would rather be a huge airstrip, intended for supernatural beings who inspired the construction of these pyramids and the city: namely, the gods of the universe. For other researchers, this road symbolically linked heaven and earth, that is to say the divine constructions that are the pyramids and inhabited areas of the city.

Mica rooms

But the most recent mystery of Teotihuacán remains that of mica rooms. In 1983, archaeologists discovered, indeed, cellars whose ceiling was isolated by a layer of mica 15 cm thick, sandwiched between two layers of stone. The function of these cellars is still unknown. For some, they would have been used to preserve fragile products and to protect them: for example, heat. For others, they would, on the contrary, have been used to produce heat and would be some kind of furnace. Finally, according to Zecharia Sitchin, a very controversial American author, this place was intended to treat, crush and clean minerals.

The mystery is all the greater as there are no natural deposits of mica in Mexico, as found in South Africa, Brazil, United States and Russia: where did the layers come from? Why were these underground rooms isolated? Who wanted it?

Finally, it was observed that a duct, also isolated by a layer of mica, came out of one of these rooms. What was it used for?

Mica

Mica is a component of granite. It is a colorless mineral, which shines like mother-of-pearl, with very specific properties: high degree of elasticity, high resistance to heat (up to 800 degrees Celsius), thermal shock and organic acids. It was mentioned for the first time in 1546, that is, well after its use in Teotihuacán.

Supernatural masters

Like Erich von Däniken, Sitchin thinks that pre-Columbian civilizations appeared with the help of deities, the Ananuki ("those who come from heaven"). The parallel between the pyramids of Teotihuacan and those of Giza is, according to him, obvious. He concluded that the builders of the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon knew Giza and that they were inspired, except for the stairs and the platform of the summit. Even if, with their 146 meters, the pyramids of Giza are twice as high, they have, indeed, the same proportions. In the field of occult science, it is thought that the pyramids of Giza were built about 8,500 years before the pharaohs. This theory raises new questions. Were prehistoric mens able to build such buildings? Do the pyramids of Teotihuacán also date from this period? Would supernatural beings have come, at a given time, to teach us their knowledge? Is there any evidence for that? For Erich von Däniken, there is no doubt: "The Earth is filled with them, they are constantly before us, we see them in museums, but we do not recognize them."
