Pyramids around the world have baffled archaeologists and historians for centuries. Now, after years of wondering about the purpose of these mysterious structures
Elon Musk has finally shed some light on why pyramids were built thousands of years ago. What’s more amazing is that he did it without any facts or science to back up his conclusion!
How are pyramids connected to space?
In a very recent interview with CNBC, Elon Musk (yes, of Tesla fame) revealed how pyramids are actually connected to space. I was shocked at his comments and decided to do some research of my own. In order to fully understand what he is saying, you will need to know that most people don’t realize that our planet has a weak magnetic field compared to other planets in our solar system. Without a strong magnetic field, it would be impossible for life as we know it to exist here on Earth. In fact, it’s estimated that if our planet had stronger magnetism than what we have now, it could take an additional 5 days for life as we know it to form.
There is still so much to learn about our planet and everything on it. It’s clear that Earth isn’t as unique as we once thought, with its magnetic field being an example of that. If you have ever wondered how pyramids are connected to space, you are certainly not alone. I look forward to Elon Musk and other innovators like him finding more answers for us in years to come!
How long ago were they built?
As far as we know, pyramids were first constructed roughly 5,000 years ago, in Egypt. While there is evidence of earlier structures that look like pyramids—namely, step-pyramid structures from around 3100 BC—they seem to have been used for a different purpose. For example, Djoser’s Step Pyramid was likely used as a giant tomb and cult centre (for worshipping him). Some experts believe these early pyramids were an attempt to replicate mountain peaks. So yeah: it took about 4500 years for humans to really get cracking on building great big piles of stone perfectly engineered for symmetry. That’s not too shabby!
If you’re not really a history buff, let’s just say we humans have been working on creating monumental structures for a long time—but there was definitely a point when pyramids were considered cool. In fact, some of them—like Zoser’s Step Pyramid, built-in 2700 BC to honour Egyptian pharaoh Djoser (who would have been totally ripped if he had Instagram)—have actually survived until today. But when did we first start building pyramids? And why? To answer these questions, let’s take a look at some archaeological evidence. First up: why build pyramids? Well…there could be multiple reasons.
Now, it’s important to note that most of our information on pyramid buildings comes from Egypt. Other civilizations also built them: The Mayans did as well, but they only started building pyramids in around 150 BC—which means they had a much shorter window of time to get their colossal projects up and running. They actually constructed two types of pyramids: temple-pyramids (like those at Chichen Itza) and tomb pyramids (like those at Tikal). The oldest surviving Egyptian pyramid is Djoser’s Step Pyramid.
Could people from space have visited Earth thousands of years ago?
Sure, maybe. But there’s no evidence that they did, and it wouldn’t prove anything about Earthly civilizations today. That’s according to Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. When asked on Twitter if he believed that ancient aliens had visited ancient humans thousands of years ago, Musk gave a pretty straightforward answer: He doesn’t know what they are or where they came from but doesn’t think they’re connected to us in any way. So either way, whether you believe in UFOs or not is a pretty silly thing to take into consideration when thinking about more serious topics like whether current civilization was influenced by past visits from extraterrestrials (or time travellers) or not.
The conversation started when someone tweeted that they’d read that Musk thought ancient aliens had visited Earth thousands of years ago. The claim was false, but Musk replied anyway and said he didn’t think they were connected to us in any way. He also added that he doesn’t know what they are or where they came from, which are fair points. If a major international figure like Elon Musk doesn’t have an opinion on something and just wants to stop people spreading misinformation about him or his beliefs, you can see why he’d rather not waste his time saying nothing about it at all.
Who could have built them if ancient Egyptians didn’t?
A fossilized tooth discovered in Morocco suggests humans may have left Africa earlier than we thought. The study, published in Nature today, says that Homo sapiens reached North Africa around 175,000 years ago—80,000 years earlier than previously thought. Along with tools used by humans and other evidence of human presence found in Morocco, researchers have concluded Homo sapiens were living there during a warm period between the ice ages. These results could revolutionize theories concerning early human dispersal and chronological frameworks for African history, study author María Martinón-Torres said in a statement. In light of our discovery, it seems increasingly obvious that early H.
sapiens populations must have been able to leave Africa much earlier than what has traditionally been proposed. So who else could have built them? Researchers say they’re not sure, but they think it’s unlikely ancient Egyptians had anything to do with it. It is possible that some other group of people or pre-human species was responsible for building these structures; however, archaeologists are still very sceptical about such possibilities, as no hominin remains associated with any megalithic structures have ever been found in Egypt or elsewhere in North Africa at present (to my knowledge). Of course, you never know what will be discovered tomorrow!
Who were the earlier humans on Earth, then?
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has often mused about life on other planets, but now he’s gotten more specific. In a recent tweet he suggested that even if we don’t have contact with aliens, they probably had contact with us in ancient times. Specifically, he asked, They (aliens) have been around for thousands of years and presumably enjoyed Earth before we (humans) showed up. Why show up now? Clearly, they are not friendly. He was responding to a question about whether he believed in aliens on Earth or just on other planets.
When someone pointed out that they might be humans from another time, Musk replied: Maybe! Who were the earlier humans on Earth, then? What did they achieve? And why did they disappear? That’s really hard to say. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 16, 2019, The response prompted quite a bit of discussion online. One person wondered how there could be an earlier civilization without any trace or evidence left behind. Another said it would be like visiting a library with no books left behind—we would never know what happened there unless someone told us. We do know what happened here though.
Elon Musk, who has been rumoured to be creating something to do with UFOs and Aliens, makes a stunning statement on his beliefs about how ancient pyramids were built. I believe that there were ancient civilizations on Mars. I think they may have been advanced. said Elon in an interview with podcast host Joe Rogan. You look at our own civilization and you wonder, ‘How did we get here?’ How did we build all these cities? How did we build all these roads?
Where does it come from?’ It’s very difficult to imagine that it just came out of nowhere. But if you look at where things are today, it suggests some sort of higher intelligence. What was needed for humans to develop was an order of magnitude increase in technology development – maybe 10 or 20 times what it took to create the first civilizations on Earth – and then once you’ve got rockets … well then you can establish colonies anywhere in the solar system. If life arose spontaneously on Earth then it could be spontaneous elsewhere too. Life might even be common in the universe! We just don’t know yet because we haven’t looked for life outside of Earth yet!
