Pyramids, Gold, Sun-worship and Sacrifice
I’ve always been interested in the human story. The questions “Where did we come from and where are we going” have always been in my heart and mind.
In 2016 I decided to really start digging into the origins of the human story. What I’ve been finding is making me question everything. One of the first questions I asked myself when trying to put the pieces together regarding ancient cultures was: “Why Gold?”
What was it about gold that was so attractive to ancient leaders all around the globe? It seemed odd to me that gold was such a powerful resource and still is. I started digging more and more. What I found was that gold hoarding; by seemingly disconnected cultures around the world, was everywhere. I also noted some other interesting connections in all of these cultures pyramid structures, sun worship, and human sacrifice were also present.
“Gold has always been powerful stuff. The earliest history of human interaction with gold is long lost to us, but its association with the gods, with immortality, and with wealth itself are common to many cultures throughout the world. Early civilizations equated gold with gods and rulers, and gold was sought in their name and dedicated to their glorification. Humans almost intuitively place a high value on gold, equating it with power, beauty, and the cultural elite. And since gold is widely distributed all over the globe, we find this same thinking about gold throughout ancient and modern civilizations everywhere.” – onlygold.com
The most interesting thing about gold; that I’ve found, lies not in our ancient history but possibly in our future. Gold is now being used to ‘unzip’ DNA, detect disease, for aerospace, electronics, in medicine and even to now detect ‘dark matter’.
Olivia Solon from Wired Magazine says; “A combined team of physicists and biologists aim to build a directional dark matter detector using strands of DNA and gold.”
I guess the biggest question I have at this point is; “Did ancient leaders know more about the bigger picture of who we are and where we come from than they let on?”
