There are some pieces and archeological sites that attract attention due to the way in which they are related to modern instruments by those who are convinced that the ancient Mexicans had contact with beings from beyond our sun.
the mayan astronaut
Pakal was an important nobleman from the Palenque region (present-day Chiapas), which was one of the most prosperous and powerful cities of his time in the Mayan culture. In the explorations in which his grave was located, an engraving of something they have named “the astronaut” was found.
This engraving has given rise to numerous legends and interpretations, among them, the story of the Mayan astronaut who seems to operate a spaceship, this idea was spread by the Swiss author Erich von Däniken.
The idea that the person in the image is operating pedals and controls like those that spaceship setups now have.
The giants of Tula
Tula or Tollan as it was named in Nahuatl. A ceremonial center in the state of Hidalgo of the Toltec civilization is identified. The unique alignment of the four Atlanteans, as they are popularly known, they are sculptures carved in hard basalt stone and that reach 4.5 meters in height.
For some, these figures represent giants, or Toltec warriors who, in which ufologists have mentioned that they carry on their sides, carry a weapon that could look similar to a pistol, which suggests an extraterrestrial presence in the ancient Toltec city. .
The bones are indications of the beings that lived before our times, however, it has been scientifically suggested that the structure of the human being or homo sapiens has not changed its structure in the last 100 thousand years.
However, in the town of Ónavas, Sonora, (200 kilometers from Hermosillo) elongated skulls were found that could be interpreted as alien headsaccording to some believers in the theory.
The same National Institute of Anthropology and History has studied the bodies to determine if this deformation is due to a ritual issue or not.
The largest city in pre-Hispanic Oasisamerica, in the northwest of Chihuahua, has unique architectural remains, such as its “T” shaped doors, which part of the popular narration by their descendants the Rarámuris (Tarahumaras) identify this site as a sacred place. It is considered that these doors had a portal function through which “very thin, light and very light-skinned people passed through”.
Other interpretations point out that these doors have that shape and height of less than 1.6 meters as a means of defense, since when entering any individual outside the city they would have to bow down showing their head and in case of being an invader they would be annihilated.
Like many cities of ancient Mexico, it has several enigmas related to its archaeological sites and Paquimé is not exempt from these versions.
