The most mysterious buildings on Earth.

“The stone age is the time when what we make out of plastic, people made of stone. ”

This issue is devoted to structures which still puzzle our contemporaries. Here we look at the huge buildings — megaliths, which to this day are the biggest mysteries of ancient civilizations. Megaliths are found all over the globe: in Peru, Mexico, Japan, China, Israel, Baalbek, etc. and will present their complete collection with photos. Megaliths are composed of high-quality processed blocks weighing up to 200 tons and will handicap even the pyramids, the purpose of these structures is unknown.

Great weight and quality of processing blocks are questioning their belonging to the local population, which often did not have brass instruments, but the wheels. It is possible that the majority of these buildings once existed belongs to precivilization, which could easily cut the stone and move mountains. Perhaps they date back to antediluvian times, and later they settled and named the natives, colorimetric and is credited with their construction. Maybe it’s the remnants of Lemuria or Atlantis?

The Pyramids Of Güímar

In Guimar on the Southeast coast of the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, there are six stupenchatykh pyramids. According to scientists, these structures were piled up by local farmers, when plowing the land have the custom to put the stones found at the borders of fields. It was common practice in the Canary Islands, especially in the second half of the nineteenth century. According to local residents and according to the old images such pyramid existed in many places of the island, but were demolished due to their perceived uselessness and used as a source of cheap building material. Directly in Güimar there were nine pyramids, of which there are only six.

The Theory Of Thor Heyerdahl

In 1991 known for his controversial theories of Explorer Thor Heyerdahl studied the pyramids and proclaimed that they may not be just mountains of rubble. For example, detected distinct traces of stone on the corners of the pyramids, and also that piece of land before the construction of the pyramids was aligned. The material is not round boulders from local fields, and pieces of lava. Continue reading

Treatment plants are not omnipotent

In all large cities, there are sewage treatment facilities sewage waters before releasing them into rivers and ponds. However, it is often old and low-power facilities that do not cope with increasing volume of effluent.

In the same cities and towns, where there is no treatment of domestic wastewater, pollution of waterways is progressing. And most importantly, the principle of operation of the treatment facilities is such that cleaning is only partial – mechanical (from large impurities, suspended solids) and biological (as it would Express natural cleaning). In special constructions – aeration tanks the wastewater is treated with active sludge rich in microorganisms. They destroy organic impurities – products of our life (but not synthetic detergents) and pathogens. Organic substances are decomposed into simple compounds, in particular containing nitrogen and phosphorus. These compounds, acting with the treated effluents in natural water bodies, it is practically harmless for humans and for vegetation, including water, are perfect breeding ground. Their so – called- nutrients. They promote intensive development of algae, primarily blue-green – a kind of weed. The cycle of their short life, they are quickly and massively die off, they grow new. The decomposition processes are growing at an exponential rate, compromising the properties of water ruining higher vegetation and animals, water inhabitants. Continue reading

Here you can find all types of megalithic structures known to science. This and the menhirs or standing stones, dolmens – stone tables and tombs, cromlechs – arched stone structures and geoglyphs and remnants of the stone cities and amphitheatres, hidden by earth and vegetation, and the great wall, and pyramids.
