Next hour with Hugh we discuss the Olmecs, their origins, the diverse nature of their culture, the big stone heads and ritual sacrifices. How did sacrifice come into the picture? Why were so many of the ancient Mesoamerican tribes practicing ritual sacrifice and who were the victims? We talk about the importance of the Mesoamerican ball game. Was this just for entertainment or was there something more behind the game? We discuss similarities with other cultures, Egyptians, Polynesians, Sumerians and Assyrians. We talk about the "White Bearded Gods" and Statues with Negroid, Asian and European features. Did the Olmecs use advanced technology, tools and wheels? We discuss catastrophe, and how the properties on earth might have been very different thousands of years ago. We talk about difference in the magnetic fields, gravity and oxygen levels. We look at the end date on the calendar systems of this ancient culture and "archeoacoustics". We end talking about the Shamanic nature of many of these cultures, the use of psilocybin mushrooms, DMT and how this might be the reason for some strange depictions of some of the "gods", these stories and myths might have been vision induced.
