It is possible that a totally unknown world exists beneath the surface. An inner earth that stretches across the planet through unexplored tunnels and caverns. The home of intraterrestrial civilisations.
There are thousands of stories of people who have gone into mines or caves that have entered a world totally alien to ours. Where alien civilisations dwell freely.
Intraterrestrial civilisations on Earth
Imagine entering a cave and, as fate would have it, entering a secret entrance that leads to a fascinating mythical city. Where there is an altar with non-human figures, very similar to the idea we have of extraterrestrials.
An underground passage where you can admire the riches left by the ancient ancestors or perhaps lead you to where other possibilities may exist.
Underground cities that have yet to be fully discovered, such as Shin-au-av or so many others that have, despite only being known by name, all are shrouded in great mystery. Including the possibility of intraterrestrial civilisations inhabiting them.
In Mexico there are 52 indigenous peoples, the heirs of the old pre-Hispanic cultures. One of them, the Maya, shone with great splendour in Mesoamerica for 3,000 years. This period includes southern Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and parts of Honduras and El Salvador.
This civilisation left a vast inheritance of advanced knowledge of mathematics and astronomy that still remains in its pyramids, palaces and temples. However, we still do not know the dark history of their collapse.
What happened to them? Although there are still some descendants among us, there will always be the mystery of why the vast majority of them disappeared at a moment’s notice, perhaps to take up another life form?
Many claim that they descended into the depths of the Earth, fleeing the dangers that lurked on the surface. Now, the most important archaeological finds of the decade are uncovering this truth.
A hidden Mayan world?
Guillermo de Anda, director of the Gran Acuífero Maya project at the National Institute of Anthropology and History, reported that on 4 March, hundreds of archaeological artefacts in honour of the Mayan “jaguar god” were found in the Balamkú cave.
The cave was 2.7 kilometres east of the Temple of Kukulcan and was discovered in 1966 by farmers from the San Felipe community. However, it remained untouched for 50 years, when an archaeologist decided to block the entrance.
In 2018, the site was rediscovered and it was determined that it was not looted, as access to it was difficult. The pieces found at the site were surprising, although some vessels were fragmented, perhaps due to the passage of time or rituals.
So far, 200 censers have been discovered, as well as braziers, vessels, cajetes, spindle whorls and miniature metates.
These pieces could date from the Late Classic, between the 7th and 8th centuries, and the Terminal Classic, approximately in the 9th and 10th centuries AD. Being used at least during these periods, they form part of 7 offerings dedicated to the image of the rain god in the Mayan cosmovision.
So far, some 460 metres have been explored on all fours, and they had to crawl through cracks of just over 40 centimetres in circumference.
This shows a very deep meaning; with this find, the Mayan people left behind a mystery that may never be revealed.
Why did they leave these objects in such remote places, practically impossible to reach? It is possible that it is the entrance to a hidden world among the mountains and caves, far away from everything we know, where intraterrestrial civilisations exist.
