Through the last 3000 years, you can track rise and fall of civilizations by the cosmic ray density hitting the Earth. More cosmic rays, more clouds, and more difficult to grow food. We are about to receive high amounts of cosmic rays from 2021 forward, meaning global food production will decline, so is this the reason for the great reset. Elite trying to control a natural cycle.

World's driest desert was once transformed into fertile oasis using guano

The Atacama Desert has a fearsome reputation. The world's driest non-polar desert, located along the Pacific coast of northern Chile, constitutes a hyperarid, Mars-like environment - one so extreme that when it rains in this parched place, it can bring death instead of life.

Yet life, even in the Atacama Desert, finds a way. The archaeological record shows that this hyperarid region supported agriculture many hundreds of years ago - crops that somehow thrived to feed the pre-Columbian and pre-Inca peoples who once lived here.

"The transition to agriculture began here around 1000 BCE and eventually supported permanent villages and a sizeable regional population," a team of researchers, led by bioarchaeologist Francisca Santana-Sagredo from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, writes in a new study.

The remains of an individual buried in the Augustinian friary, taken during the 2016 excavation on the University of Cambridge's New Museums site.
Social inequality was "recorded on the bones" of Cambridge's medieval residents, according to a new study of hundreds of human remains excavated from three very different burial sites within the historic city centre.

University of Cambridge researchers examined the remains of 314 individuals dating from the 10th to the 14th century and collected evidence of "skeletal trauma" — a barometer for levels of hardship endured in life.

Bones were recovered from across the social spectrum: a parish graveyard for ordinary working people, a charitable "hospital" where the infirm and destitute were interred, and an Augustinian friary that buried wealthy donors alongside clergy.

Turkey: Archaeologists have discovered a mysterious ancient kingdom lost in history

It was said that all he touched turned to gold. But destiny eventually caught up with the legendary King Midas, and a long-lost chronicle of his ancient downfall appears to have literally surfaced in Turkey.

In 2019, archaeologists were investigating an ancient mound site in central Turkey called Türkmen-Karahöyük. The greater region, the Konya Plain, abounds with lost metropolises, but even so, researchers couldn't have been prepared for what they were about to find.

A local farmer told the group that a nearby canal, recently dredged, revealed the existence of a large strange stone, marked with some kind of unknown inscription.

"We could see it still sticking out of the water, so we jumped right down into the canal - up to our waists wading around," said archaeologist James Osborne from the University of Chicago in early 2020.

"Right away it was clear it was ancient, and we recognised the script it was written in: Luwian, the language used in the Bronze and Iron ages in the area."

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Electric geology and purposely covered up history (documentary)

Planetary lightning discharge through Earth's past and global cataclysms are human history. Using supersonic wind deposit patterns to locate electric discharge line through the Smokey Mountains from Tennessee to N. Carolina, and along the connecting arc to a secondary filament branch sit the largest Cherokee sites and prehistoric settlements. In N. Carolina south of the shock wave line were witness to plasma displays in the skies, then carved onto the Judaculla Rock after viewing the event from Sylva, N. Carolina looking NW.

Five caves in Tennessee have yielded more to the idea that electric skies and plasma displays recorded around the planet occurred in S.E USA skies as well as the western U.S. With an additional electromagnetic field forming in the outer solar system in 2024, perhaps we should begin looking for massive sink holes and landslides as an indicator that cave art was a warning to future generations.

Simple question: Were Cherokee and Prehistoric Sites Flooded to Hide Global Timelines in East Tennessee.

Matthew Ehret: How the FBI created 'domestic terrorism' through 80 years of psychological warfare

Washington post headline 9/11
© The Washington Post
The "war on terror" is now expanding to target a broad spectrum of the American population who would be morally resistant to the sorts of anti-human policies demanded by Great Reset Technocrats.

Since it has become increasingly evident that a vast extension of the Patriot Act will soon be unveiled that threatens to re-define "the war on terror" to include essentially anyone who disagrees with the governing neoliberal agenda, it is probably a good time to evaluate how and why terrorism - domestic or otherwise - has tended to arise over the past century.

If, in the course of conducting this evaluation, we find that terrorism is truly a "naturally occurring phenomenon", then perhaps we might conclude alongside many eminent figures of the intelligence community and Big Tech, that new pre-emptive legislation targeting the rise of a new conservative-minded domestic terrorist movement is somehow necessary. Maybe the censoring of free speech, and the surveillance of millions of Americans by the Five Eyes is a necessary evil for the sake of the greater good.

However, if it is revealed that the thing we call "terrorism", is something other than a naturally occurring, self-organized phenomenon, but rather something which only exists due to vast support from western political agencies, then a very different conclusion must be arrived at which may be disturbing for some.

A total of 25 ancient tombs with human skulls enfolded in vessels have been discovered in a township in southwest China's Guizhou Province.

The tombs, believed to date back as early as 2,300 years, have been excavated in the Kele Yi-Miao Township of Hezhang County, with the skulls found encased in dome-shaped vessels.

Bronze drums and pots, as well as iron pots, were among the vessels containing skulls in the tombs excavated since the 1970s, Wu Xiaohua, an associate researcher from the provincial research institute of cultural relics and archaeology, said Wednesday.

How many early human species existed on Earth?

The skulls of various human species.
We Homo sapiens didn't used to be alone. Long ago, there was a lot more human diversity; Homo sapiens lived alongside an estimated eight now-extinct species of human about 300,000 years ago. As recently as 15,000 years ago, we were sharing caves with another human species known as the Denisovans. And fossilized remains indicate an even higher number of early human species once populated Earth before our species came along.

"We have one human species right now, and historically, that's really weird," said Nick Longrich, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Bath in the United Kingdom. "Not that far back, we weren't that special, but now we're the only ones left."

So, how many early human species were there?

When it comes to figuring out exactly how many distinct species of humans existed, it gets complicated pretty quickly, especially because researchers keep unearthing new fossils that end up being totally separate and previously unknown species.

"The number is mounting, and it'll vary depending on whom you talk to," said John Stewart, an evolutionary paleoecologist at Bournemouth University in the United Kingdom. Some researchers argue that the species known as Homo erectus is in fact made up of several different species, including Homo georgicus and Homo ergaster.

"It's all about the definition of a species and the degree to which you accept variation within a species," Stewart told Live Science. "It can become a slightly irritating and pedantic discussion, because everyone wants an answer. But the truth is that it really does depend."

Join us on a journey through human history and explore how evolution and ingenuity shaped us. From the first branches of the Homo family tree to the astonishing achievements our species are capable of today, "The Story of Humans" will reveal how harnessing fire and crafting tools shaped our future, how we triumphed over our Neanderthal relatives, how the invention of agriculture changed history and how the human brain developed.

Burial practices point to an interconnected early Medieval Europe

Early Medieval Europe is frequently viewed as a time of cultural stagnation, often given the misnomer of the 'Dark Ages'. However, analysis has revealed new ideas could spread rapidly as communities were interconnected, creating a surprisingly unified culture in Europe.

Dr. Emma Brownlee, Department of Archaeology, University of Cambridge, examined how a key change in Western European burial practices spread across the continent faster than previously believed — between the 6th — 8th centuries AD, burying people with regionally specific grave goods was largely abandoned in favor of a more standardized, unfurnished burial.

"Almost everyone from the eighth century onwards is buried very simply in a plain grave, with no accompanying objects, and this is a change that has been observed right across western Europe," said Dr. Brownlee.

Comment: Could it be that this change reflects the widespread adoption of new religious beliefs that followed the collapse of the Roman Empire? Also check out SOTT radio's:
