The Portuguese Navy are studying a huge under water pyramid close to the Azores according to an official Portuguese news report.
Some people are already questioning whether this is the lost city of Atlantis or whether the pyramid is of Extra-terrestrial origin.
Other more grounded specialists are speculating it could be part of a larger map incorporating the pyramids found at Giza in Egypt.
The pyramid was discovered under the sea by a local sailor close to the Azores looking for good fishing grounds using digital scanning equipment.
The 9 islands that make up the Azorean archipelago we now know as the Azores were discovered uninhabited by the Portuguese in 1427. In recent years archaeologists have discovered ancient rock art on the island of Terceira, which they believe to be many thousands of years old.
They have also discovered a variety of ancient archaeological remains on all the nine islands. They have been identified as an epigraph from Roman times, Carthaginian sanctuaries, cave art, and megalithic structures. It would seem there is a lot more history to these islands that pre date 1427.
The underwater pyramid was discovered by Diocleciano Silva between the islands of Terceira and São Miguel. It is said that the structure is perfectly square and oriented by the cardinal points.
Using current GPS digital technology it is estimated that the pyramid is around 60 metres high and has a base of nearly 8000 square metres. That is pretty big!
The Portuguese Hydrographic Institute of the Navy are studying the pyramid data to determine whether it is man-made, naturally occurring or even something more interesting. Extra-terrestrial perhaps? I wonder if Mulder and Scully are investigating!
The pyramid is found in an area of the Atlantic that has been covered by water for around 20,000 years. That time coincides with the last great ice age of the northern hemisphere where the glaciers started melting 2000 years earlier. Whoever was living there before the ice age, human or not were probably responsible for building the pyramid.
So far the Portuguese Navy have not determined the origins of the pyramid. It is surprising that this has not been reported before or even discovered before. Was it kept secret or had it sat there for years unnoticed?
What is hard to believe is that the area is heavily studied for its volcanic activity by the NOAA, who study volcanic behaviour. You would have thought that they would have found the pyramid through sonar imaging. So was it kept secret until Diocleciano Silva found it and went public or is he the first person to actually find this incredible mystery?
Some people even think it might not be real and is instead a hoax but that theory seems unlikely especially as pyramids are evident all across the globe with new ones been discovered every now and then.
This is the actual pyramid as show as a reading from a high tech scanning device.
Archaeologists from the Portuguese Association of Archaeological Research have found evidence on Pico Island that suggests humans did live in the area many thousands of years before the Portuguese discovered the uninhabited Azores.
This adds support to the idea that an ancient civilisation was there at the time to build the huge pyramid. There is still no explanation as to who created the rock art found on the islands or why.
So who did build the underwater pyramid? Was it built by a great ancient civilisation that spanned the globe from South America to Africa and the East?
Pyramids are found across many continents, was this one giant civilisation? Is this the fabled lost continent of Atlantis that connected the distant civilisations together? Or is it not man made and perhaps Extra-terrestrial in origin?
Here is the original Portuguese news report along with English subtitles (Not the best I may add) for those who wish to check the validity of the claims and the story.
The Azores themselves are a chain of 9 volcanic islands in three main groups situated 930 miles west of Lisbon. They sit around the fault lines between the tectonic plates of the North American, Eurasian and African continents. The energetic qualities of that area are a great place to have a pyramid. Pyramids are supposed to collect and concentrate energy in positive ways.
This video shows the spot where the pyramid might be along with some discussion about the validity of the claims.
The coordinates of the pyramid have not been released to the public, why? We are not sure maybe it is to prevent tomb robbers and Lara Croft from visiting or maybe there are other important secrets that they need to keep quiet for now. What is believed is that there could be two more pyramids in the area and that there could be a design link with those found in Egypt which form a land based representation of a star constellation.
Adding to the theory that these pyramids were created by people from the stars or that our ancients knew we were created by aliens in ‘their image’ and not native to this planet. These giant star maps could be the real clue to the history of mankind’s origin.
I have always been interested in this stuff and I have always been drawn to go to the Azores… maybe it is an ancient calling
Anyway I will leave you with this interesting video about the underwater pyramid and other possible structures in and around the Azores, the Canary Islands, Antarctica and in the Atlantic sea.
