The Nazca Lines include over 800 straight lines, 300 geometric shapes and 70 animal drawings. And just the moment when you think they couldn’t get any more mysterious than they already are, try to plot them over the whole planet. They unite into one particular spot. And trust us, it’s incredible.
The Nazca Lines are places in Nazca, Peru. For years they have been an object of admiration yet a mystery for many historians, researchers and regular people as well.
In fact, these incredible lines are only visible from the air. They were first detected back in 1927 when airlines started flying in Peru and passengers were curious over the odd things they were observing on the ground.
Up until now, researchers have listed about 800 straight lines, 300 geometric figures and 70 animal and plant drawings. However, there is no definite explanation who created them, for what purpose or why can only be seen aerial.
Many experts believe the lines were designed by the ancient Nazca civilization. One of the largest figures measures stunning 200 meters across.
The aforementioned ancient Nazca culture was a prehistoric civilization that was thriving in architecture techniques to deliver underground water to the surface.
Nazca legends tell the story of Viracocha, the god who created the Incas, to have ordered the Nazca lines’ creation many years ago.
However, the complete truth behind them is still unknown, despite the many theories people have been speculating for years.
The most famous Nazca lines are the Hummingbird, the Condor, The Astronaut, and the Spider. They all reach a depth around 10 to 30 centimeters.
Many important questions regarding the Nazca lines remain unanswered and new continue to emerge every single day.
Recently, people have questioned what would happen if we plotted the complete Nazca lines all over the planet.
In particular, one YouTube user made an attempt to do that. According to him, the outcome is unbelievable.
If you plot the lines with the help of Google Earth, the ‘meet’ at one specific place. This place is Angkor Wat, a temple complex in Cambodia and one of the greatest religious mausoleums in the world with tremendous 162.6 hectares.
The amusing fact is that Nazca forms a connection on the other side of Earth with Angkor Wat. Thus, the Cambodian complex is the correct antipodal of Nazca.
What is an antipodal location?
An antipodal location on a spherical surface is the point which is diametrically contrary to it – settled in a way in which a line pulled from one point to other passes in the center of the sphere and forms a real diameter.
This might all sound like a geometrical coincidence. However, there are many people who believe that ancient civilizations had a strong interconnection which explains the perfect arrangement of the structures around the world.
What do you think? Could it be just a coincidence or is there something more than that?
