In Nahuatl, Teotihuacan means the city of the gods, or rather the city where people become gods. It cannot be more explicit. This vast monument of uncertain origin was among the first lightning traps, a sacred architectural complex where the novices were given awakening by fire from heaven.
Teotihuacan was once, and during a long time, the largest city in Mexico, and the capital of the largest pre-Columbian empire. Two main avenues running north-south and east-west divided the city into quarters. The ancient city was built according to a specific grid, and stretched over 8 square miles. When was this beautiful architectural set built? Again, people disagree on this issue. According to archaeologists, the pyramid of the sun was built in -150. The rest of the city was for the most part, built between 250 and 600.
But there are other authors, more and more numerous, who believe it is much older. Science has no way to settle the debate. The carbon-14 dating, besides questioned by physicists, cannot be applied to stones. The palinography neither. No pollen deposited on a stone or any shard of pottery will never give a date of construction, because it is almost always reuses of the site. Believing analyzing any organic material left by the manufacturers, we may date the snack of an ancient tourist.
In their too recent dating, our archaeologists follow a dogma which says that no American civilization is anterior to our cities in the Middle East. But this dogma is not scientific, far from that, it makes out of archeology kind of a sect with unsustainable and racist ideas. Here, as in Peru, Turkey, Egypt, and in other sites, we must put back the dating that Western archeology has imposed on us for the last fifty years. Whatever its actual age, Teotihuacan never was an ordinary town.
Whatever was its real age, the City of Gods has exerted a great influence on all other cultures over there. Its art and architecture are found throughout the Mayan region, from northern Yucatan to the adjacent territory of Honduras and to the Pacific coast of Guatemala, through Central Mexico. The largest structures are characterized by talud-tablero style, the inclined talud supports the vertical tablero on the surface of which there are architectural ornaments of stucco paintings.
They were often whitewashed and painted in bright colors. Much of the town consisted of some residential complexes, some containing elegant and refined frescoes.
The last period of the history of Teotihuacan (150-450) marked the apogee of the city whose splendor reached its maximum. At that time its population reached 200 000 people. The influence the city had in the architecture and the arts came to Guatemala and other Mesoamerican civilizations imitated its particularities, as it is the case for talud- tablero and ceramics. Merchants and pilgrims urged there in large numbers for major ceremonies. The City of Gods was abandoned in the 7th century.
After the official versionthe stupid and ignorant version of archaeologists, here is the real story of the City of Gods. Teotihuacan is better written as Teo Ti Wakan, the city where people become Gods. Wakan means "sacred" or "divine" in the native languages. The god of the Sioux is "Wakan Tanka", the Holy Spirit, or Great Spirit. 150,000 years ago, supermen have built there the greatest lightning trap on this planet. They would use this city sacred to turn humans into a god through a peculiar feature of the lightning, the ball.
Ball lightning can kill or give the awakening, depending on the people. The Atlanteans knew how to restrain lightning in order to channel its liberating potential; they mashed lightning flashes into balls of white fire that vibrated drinking water into a potion of long life. They have built lightning traps all around the world. Abydos, Giza, Mycenae, Knossos, Gavrinis, Locminé, Carnac, Stonehenge, Avebury, Uruk, Jerusalem, Machu Picchu, Tiwanaku, Cuzco, Tula, Mahabalipuram, Yonaguni, Maldives, Easter Island,
the five continents have experienced this civilization and its single obsession, becoming gods.
On a vast expanse of water, every construction becomes a lightning sensor, even without capstone!
We have to figure out the City of the Gods as it firts was: the main axis called Avenue of the Dead was a large basin filled with one yard of pure water. On site, it was noted that the construction of the avenue looked like a pool, with rounded feet of the walls, contiguous stones, traces of bitumen. A system of pipes, of which there are still visible traces, renewed the water that, once vibrated by lightning, became a magic potion to drink and to irrigate vegetable crops.
Then the gods were gone. The site ceased to operate, but local people have not forgotten its role, hence the name they gave it. Around 4,000 BPBefore Present men did not know any more to operate the lightning traps, but they had not given up the quest of divine powers. Other techniques of awakening have existed around 60.000 BP as trepanation, or eating some particular fruit around 13,000BP, or electro-therapy by capacitor around 3000 BP. And other people came.
They found the city very impressive,
and they decided to make it their capital city.
Then they whitewashed the walls, they painted murals, they built houses of princes which have all disappeared. They were less durable than the original monuments! Several times, the City of Gods has been occupied by people who had nothing in common with the first builders. Until that day in the 7th century AD, when the last Toltec left town in thunderstorms, probably to reach greener pastures. Since then, the only people living there are the merchants of Maya souvenirs.
Who, among them, does remember the true story of
Teo Ti Wakan, the city where men become gods?
It looks like another magical city, ancient, in the Andes...
Its name is almost the same: Ti Wanacu, the City of the Gods
