An Extraterrestrial Visit? Part II.

Close encounters of an enduring kind: An alien fortress in Bolivia?

Anna Blake Patrick

Strange findings have been made at the mysterious ruins of Puma Punku of Tiwanaku, up in the Altiplano of Bolivia. Similar to other ancient structures in the area, these ruins are made out of large masses of sandstone and granite, some of the blocks weighing over a hundred tons. What’s different about Puma Punku, however, is that some of these blocks are so finely articulated that they appear to have been made with precision power tools. Further, archaeologists have no idea what the original structure would have looked like or its purpose.

According to author Brien Foerster, the ruins of Puma Punku are unique in style and in craft; “Nowhere else on earth do we see the same style of cutting into the stone and the same obvious use of high precision tools in the distant past. That’s what makes it so mysterious.” Not only do these blocks of granite have perfect 90-degree angle corners, but they also have holes that drill right through the rock in curves, too small for human hands and too precise for ancient tools. Achieving such precision would have been impossible at that time, and the curvature found deep within the rock is still impossible to achieve today. Further, every stone was vitrified, meaning that it was so smooth that it felt like touching a mirror, a texture that no other ancient structure ever achieved.

Puma Punku is known for its Gate of Sun and Wall of Faces, both of which are perfectly rectangular monuments made of stone, adorned with protruding, bodiless faces. While these faces carry some human likeness, they also depict prominent otherworldly features, such as unusually small mouths and remarkably large eyes.

Puma Punku is also known for its H-blocks, which look exactly as they sound, only three-dimensional and intricately carved with exact 90-degree precision. Judging by the clear and precise deviations between the width of the front and the back of these H-blocks, the blocks themselves likely were once a part of a much greater structure, as some form of fortress or temple, home to a great otherworldly deity or power. Surfacing questions are: What was the original structure? And for whom was it built?

One of the greater mysteries about Puma Punku is that the Aymara, the locals, have lived there for 900 years and still have no idea why Puma Punku was made, when it was made, or who made it. The Inca, once prominent in that area, also had no knowledge of the inhabitants of Puma Punku. According to Brien Foerster, no one on Earth knows, either. 

Every single known fact about Puma Punku directly points to the existence of extraterrestrial life. Further mysteries remain unanswered: Why did these extraterrestrials choose this exact location? What sort of large structure once stood there, and did that mean that there was once an extraterrestrial hierarchy similar to the royal human hierarchies of both the past and present? And finally… did they ever truly leave?

What do you think?
