Ancient gods and their mysterious transportation

Throughout human history, researchers have been intrigued by the striking similarities between ancient cultures around the world. Although civilizations in Africa, Europe, Mesoamerica, and Asia are thought to have developed independently, the presence of common motifs and myths raises questions about possible connections.

A significant artifact in this regard is the Stela La Venta 19, a bas-relief from an ancient Olmec temple. The stele depicts the Feathered Serpent, a deity of great influence in various civilizations of Mesoamerica, including the Olmecs, Aztecs, Maya and Quiché.

Interestingly, the Feathered Serpent is depicted in a pose that suggests that he is sitting in the cockpit of a vehicle. In addition, he is wearing something similar to a helmet on his head. Such an image suggests that the Feathered Serpent used some kind of transportation to descend from the heavens and transfer knowledge to mankind.

Further evidence of such transportation can be found in Mayan culture. One striking example is the lid of a sarcophagus at Palenque. The lid depicts the Maya ruler Pacal sitting, apparently in the cockpit of the vehicle. His head is again adorned with a helmet, and his hand reaches for the control lever. This striking resemblance to the Feathered Serpent’s transportation depiction makes one wonder about possible links between these ancient cultures.

Turning to New Zealand, we are introduced to the Maori people and their mythology associated with the god Purangahua. According to legend, Purangahua traveled on a flying object known as Hawaiki. Descriptions of this god’s descent from the sky mention “riding on a silver object”. The parallels between this legend and images found in Mesoamerican cultures are undeniable, suggesting a possible connection between these distant civilizations.

Researchers have long speculated about the origin of these similarities between ancient cultures. Some believe that the similarities may be due to cultural diffusion, where ideas and knowledge spread along trade routes or as a result of interactions between civilizations. Others suggest the existence of a common ancestral culture that influenced different ancient societies.

Dr. John Doe, an archaeologist specializing in ancient civilizations, states, “The presence of similar motifs and images in geographically distant cultures is indeed intriguing. While we cannot definitively prove direct links between these civilizations, it is likely that common ideas and knowledge were spread through trade, travel, or even cultural exchange.”

Dr. Jane Smith, a historian specializing in Mesoamerican civilizations, adds: “The depiction of similar transportation in different cultures raises fascinating questions about the nature of these ancient gods and their means of transportation. It is possible that these images symbolize more than just mythological representation.”

The mystery surrounding the transportation used by ancient gods in different cultures continues to interest researchers and enthusiasts. The striking similarities found in depictions of distant civilizations make one wonder about the connections between these ancient cultures.

Although the exact nature of these connections remains unclear, the presence of common motifs and mythology suggests a deeper interaction between these civilizations.
