In this article, I want to talk to you about finding an object that is incompatible in terms of time with the content it transmits. I’m talking about a famous oopart, nothing less than the so-called “genetic disc”. The disc in question because this is what it is, measures 22cm, weighs 2 kg and is “carved” on both sides, is made of a very hard material such as stone called Lydite.
It was presented by the archaeologist Klaus Dona but the find was the work of a local architect, a certain Jaime Gutierrez Lega who found it in Colombia. Seems to be dated 6,000 years ago as a creation, it is now exhibited at the Natural Science Museum in Vienna. But why is it so famous? Let’s say that even nowadays, engraving a hard material like Lydite is not a walk, imagine 6000 years ago when there were no metal chisels or lasers. What kind of technology could have made such an object?
We have said that it is a very hard stone a little less than granite in the scale that evaluates the hardness of the materials, but at the same time it is fragile because it is composed of overlapping layers which suggests that if it were engraved directly with the tip of a chisel it would be irreparably damaged, so how did they do it?
The thing that has left many scholars in general baffled is that it depicts genetic and biological information. For example, an evolutionary process that leads from the frog to the man, also appear genital organs, spermatozoa, female eggs, the fertilization of an egg that becomes an embryo and then a fetus! Finally there is a cell division scene.
To be fair we must say that some scientists have defined it as a fake built to perfection. Erich Von Daniken science fiction writer and researcher assumes that the artifact may have come from the collection of Father Carlos Crespi, a missionary who worked in Ecuador in the mid-twentieth century and who collected many artifacts of Mesoamerican culture such as that of the Incas.
The priest found many mysterious artifacts in tunnels near the Ecuadorian city of Cuenca. Gutiérrez’s collection also includes other objects always made with the same material, namely Lydite, here are two:
This strange knife pictured here suggests its use in medical circumstances such as the birth of a baby and then this too.
No one however has so far failed to understand exactly the technique used to make these tools so perfectly and arose the question that was not any of Columbian cultures of South America, many experts say definitely an unknown civilization, but very advanced. An Extraterrestrial Technology?
