This is one of the most mysterious artifacts in the world!
It was discovered in Colombia. It is 10 ½ inches in diameter, and weighs about 4 ½ pounds.
Both sides are covered in illustrations of the development of a fetus in all stages. Nowadays, most of this process is only observed by doctors using special equipment.
So how was this knowledge known 6,000 years ago?
And what other knowledge could have been possessed by the obscure civilization which made the disc?
Colombian professor, Jeime Gutierrez Lega, has been gathering unexplained ancient objects for years. Most of the artifacts from his collection have been discovered in explorations of the almost inaccessible region of the province of Cundinamarca, Columbia. They are stones with illustrations of people and animals and baffling symbols and inscriptions in an unknown language.
The main exhibit of the professor’s collection is the Genetic disc (also known as the embryonic disc), made from lydite, a stone, first mined in Lydia, an ancient country in the western part of Malaysia (south of Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand), which is on the other side of the world, in the Indian Ocean.
The stone is similar to granite in the matter of hardness, but it also possesses a layered structure along with the hardness, which makes it very difficult to work with.
The stone is also known as darlingite, radiolarite, and basanite. Since ancient times, it has been used for the manufacturing of jewels and mosaics. But cutting something from it should have been impossible using the tools possessed by humans 6,000 years ago.
The problem comes from its layered structure, because it will automatically break upon contact with cutting tools. And still, the genetic disc is made from this mineral, and the drawings on it more closely resemble a print rather than a carving.
It is obvious that when the mineral underwent its treatment, a technique unknown to us was used. Its secret remains a mystery to this day.
The illustrations on the disc are also a source of many questions. The entire process of the beginning of human life is illustrated on the circumference of both sides with incredible accuracy, the purpose of male and female reproductive organs, the moment of conception, development of the fetus inside the womb and the birth of the baby.
On the left part of the disc (if we are to imagine the circle as a dial on a watch, the location of 11 o’clock) a clear drawing of sperm with no spermatozoids and next to it, one with spermatozoids (the author probably wanted to illustrate the birth of the male seed).
For the record, spermatozoids weren’t discovered until 1677 by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek and his student. This event was preceded by the invention of the microscope back in 1590, but the illustrations on the disc prove that there was presence of such knowledge thousands of years earlier.
At the position of 1 o’clock on the disk, one can see several completely formed spermatozoids. Next to it is a baffling drawing, scientists still haven’t come to a conclusion as to what it means. Around the position of 3 o’clock there are images of a man, woman, and child.
A fetus in several stages of development, which end in the formation of a baby, is illustrated on the upper part of the opposite side of the disc. The drawing shows the evolution of life inside the mother. And in the region of 6 o’clock, a man and woman are illustrated once again.
A study determined that these really are illustrations of the basic stages of development of a human fetus, and they can easily be identified.
Researchers have determined the age of the disk to be at least 6,000 years old and it does not belong to any of the existing Colombian cultures of South America.
For now, no one can explain what kinds of technologies were used in the production of this object.
From all the studies and discoveries we can only make the conclusion that it belongs to an unknown and highly developed civilization of the past.
Believe it or not!
