Ukuqoshwa kwe-Abydos okuthakazelisayo

Ngaphakathi kweThempeli likaFaro Seti I, abavubukuli bathola uchungechunge lwezithombe eziqoshiwe ezibukeka njengezindiza ezinophephela emhlane nemikhumbi-mkhathi.

The ancient city complex of Abydos is located about 450 kilometers south of Cairo, Egypt, and is considered by many to be one of the most important historical sites associated to Ancient Egypt. It also houses a collection of inscriptions popularly known as the “Abydos Carvings” that has sparked debate among archaeologists and historians.

Izithombe ze-Abydos

Inside the Temple of Pharaoh Seti I are a series of carvings that look a lot like futuristic helicopters and spaceships. The helicopter is particularly recognizable, which has raised questions about how it could exist in such a technologically distant past. Naturally, every enthusiast of the UFO phenomenon points to these images as proof that we have been visited by other, more advanced civilizations.

Ngokunjalo, sonke isazi seGibhithe esivamile senza okusemandleni ukuze sichaze ukuthi le midwebo eyindida imane nje ingumphumela wama-hieroglyphs amadala abeplastiwa futhi aqoshwa kabusha, ukuze kuthi lapho ukhonkolo ludilika kamuva, izithombe zishintshe. Ngaphansi kokhonkolo, baphinde bavela njengenhlanganisela eyenzeka ngengozi phakathi kwezithombe ezindala nezintsha.

Imidwebo eyinkimbinkimbi kakhulu yadalwa ukukhombisa ukuthi inqubo yenzeka kanjani. Ngaphezu kwalokho, abavubukuli bendabuko baqhubekisele phambili impikiswano yakudala yokuthi njengoba izindiza ezinophephela emhlane noma eminye imishini endizayo yayingatholakali emadolobheni asendulo aseGibhithe, lezi zinto zobuciko zazingasoze zaba khona.

Muva nje, kube nezinselelo ezinemininingwane eminingi futhi ezihlakaniphe kakhulu kumcabango wokuthi lezi zithombe zimane nje zingumkhiqizo wokunqunywa. Okokuqala ukuthi iThempeli likaSeti I laliwumsebenzi obaluleke kakhulu futhi ukusetshenziswa kosimende kwakungaba yinto engathandeki, njengoba abaseGibhithe babengongoti bokugcwalisa uhlobo olukhethekile lwetshe leshlabathi elaliqinile futhi liqinile kakhulu.

The re-sculpting theory is also being examined and recent practical experiments cannot duplicate the effect described by conventional experts.

Some independent researchers believe that the item layout has a strong and precise relationship with the Golden Proportion concept, and at this point, it becomes quite interesting that the original carvings could be covered, re-sculpted and still lines up with a coincident set of perfect measurements and proportions, a feat simply unbelievable.

Amazwi wokugcina

Though this is very fascinating to imagine that ancient Egyptians could really fly in a strange futuristic ship or they just had witnessed something they couldn’t explain and carved it into stone as a record. But we have never found a concrete evidence to support this extraordinary imagination/theory. Perhaps time will give us the correct answer, in the meantime, the mystery persists and the debate continues.
