Ancient Gold Electroplating,

So I have a friend whose child is doing a science project and she tells me that he is making a "baghdad battery". Suprising to everyone in the conversation and afterward even to me I had never heard of this. So i started looking into it.

"Baghdad battery"

After seeing this I started looking into what it could have been used for and found that its possible that it was used for electroplating...

Electroplating wiki

This reminds me of the story of the annunaki and thier hunger for gold...

(interesting tidbit, i came across this...200,000 yr old annunaki)

lead me to this history of anunnaki and xfacts nibiru and anunnaki

I have been trying to figure out if it is possible to hook up more than one of the batteries together and possibly have enought power to actually do something. Theoretically if the current is the same they can be harnessed together to create more power. Maybe magnetically charge soemthing in order to "move" solid stone rocks to where they want to go. VERY INTERESTING TO ME!

But just some stuff that an average everyday conversation can turn into in "my" mind.

I just saw this yesterday on ancient aliens yesterday!

Yeah, the Baghdad battery is very interesting. Supposedly they also found cave or wall drawings of lightbulbs, which the battery could have been used to power up.

And that one was an interesting find also. This was due to the low oxygen level inside the Great Pyramid. Nobody is actually able to explain with certainty how they were able to see in there to get around. Numerous people have come forward and stated that the oxygen levels in there are too low to have torches burning, and there are also no tell tale signs of torch use on the walls or ceilings. (soot, burn marks ect..)
The Baghdad battery by itself would not have the juice to power a bulb, but enough of them wired together could. Or possibly some more advanced larger versions of it yet to be found.

Maybe, from the ALIENS.AWSOME!

I'm fascinated by ancient stuff like this. As you all know, I love physics. Adore it. So when I find stuff that just...doesn't add up...I can't get enough of it.

I don't know where to begin. Explaining this using science is, well...unnecessary. Its a bloody battery. The same kind of battery in your car. No question about it.

WTF is it doing in ancient times? I have no clue. I know a little something about building pyramids and other ancient structures.

Lets face it, moving huge stones is possible. There are plenty of methods to do it. Sure, none of them add up how things like the pyramids were built in such short time...but whatever. I'll give skeptics that. We can move big rocks.

But there are so many structures out there that, as a physics lover, I can't wrap my head around. Ever heard of Sacsayhuamán? This weird building in Peru totally baffles me.

If you've never heard of it, I'll explain as best I can. Firstly, they are huge rocks stacked up in lots of various wall-like arrangements. They are arranged so precisely that you can't fit a sheet of paper between them. Is that really unusual though? No. Rocks are heavy and we can move heavy rocks.

What is unusual to me is that these rocks were quarried, and quarried with precision. We are talking about granite here. GRANITE. Granite has traces of quartz in it, which is a 9 on the hardness scale. The only thing you can use to cut quartz is a 10 on the hardness scale. The only thing we know of that can do that is diamond.

Just google up some Sacsayhuamán. It just doesn't add up. I fail to believe ancient cultures had industrial diamond-tipped saw blades. What is worse, these stones were carved out horizontally...which we can't even do today. A culture could use a laser, but there are no burn marks. They just...were excavated.

Check out Coral Castle too.

Gobekli Tepe.

This stuff just doesn't make sense. And it isn't just odd ball stuff, this is major stuff. We are really missing a huge piece of the puzzle here. How is it that all of these cultures, even some modern examples like Coral Castle can be built?

There are rumors of geomagnetic "lay lines" of some kind. Honestly, I'm not sure about that. I have a friend in the field that may give me some answers. I was under the impression that our geomagnetism fluctuates and has no fixed position, aside from the poles. Even if there were these lay lines...that doesn't mean I can just...pick up a huge rock. Or harvest it without cutting tools.

I just can't put it together.

Why would these ancient civilizations with limit resources waste so much TIME building these things? Think about it...ever day you would be so focused on group survival. Gathering, hunting, farming. You wouldn't have a few hours to kill each day like you do now. No time to relax. So why are they investing valuable time in building nonsense like this? Think about it. Do WE create any huge monolithic structures today? No. It takes up time and resources that we don't have available.

Things like Gobekli Tepe....moving just ONE stone would be a team effort for an entire village. A team project that would take weeks. Same with the younger stone henge. Why would you risk life and limb to do this? Humans just don't do that. We aren't any different today than we were back then.

Honestly ask yourself...if your church told you to abandon your family and home for weeks or months to retrieve a stone and drag it across the land, would you do it? Or would you tell them to stick the stone up their ass? What about your boss? Who could compel humans to do this? We honestly just don't have it in us.

Think about it, we can't even work in retail without having a union involved.

I do have two theories. Firstly...the really amazing and permanent stuff is visible because it is permanent. Of course. All the other ordinary dumb stuff is harder to find because it is ordinary and fades with time. It is only natural we WOULD be left with the really cool stuff. It creates an illusion of them all being connected, which they aren't.

Secondly, that doesn't change the fact that they exist. Or the fact that we just can't duplicate it today. Architecturally, many societies were more skilled and advanced than us. We just have to admit it. They are using more complicated mediums, no modern tools, and they can do it better than we can with all of our awesomeness. We can't cut into granite the way they do. We can't build pyramids. We can't raise and balance stone quickly or with such ease. Remember again, count in cultural stuff here. Our vast global population of 7 billion and we can't round up a few thousand to build a monolith? Sure we have sky scapers, but would those last 12,000 years without maintenance? Yeah right. Some of these things we have found will CONTINUE to last for another 12,000 or longer.

I guess what I'm trying to say is...we are dumb as hell. I've dedicated years to the study of the natural world and I can't figure this out. Think about it. My life literally revolves around physics. Its what I do. I can calculate the trajectory of celestial bodies, predict weather, create light and fire without flint. This stuff is MAGIC to ancient cultures. Yet when I look at some of their buildings...I can't do that. I can't DESIGN that. I can't ENGINEER that. A team of stone masons, architects, mathematicians, and astrophysicists couldn't put some of this together. It is safe, I think, to assume that previous ancient cultures were vastly more powerful than we are.

The Egyptian pyramids were just the tail end of a superior society. When our society ends...what will remain? Anything? Maybe some of our roads? Gravel quarries where our huge cement buildings once stood? Nothing like the pyramids.

If we really looked, I think the baghdad battery is the least of our unusual discoveries.
