The “Third Party” Theory of Ancient Egypt & Central America

Archaeological evidence suggested that rather than developing slowly and painfully, as is normal with human societies, the civilization of Ancient Egypt, like that of the Olmecs in Mexico, emerged all at once and fully formed.

Indeed, the period of transition from primitive to advanced society appears to have been so short that it makes no kind of historical sense. Technological skills that should have taken hundreds or even thousands of years to evolve were brought into use almost overnight.

Ancient Egyptian Pyramid & Sphinx

For example: Remains from the pre-dynastic period around 3,500 BC show no trace of writing. Soon after that date, quite suddenly and inexplicably, the hieroglyphs familiar from so many of the ruins of Ancient Egypt begin to appear in a complete and perfect state. Far from being mere pictures of objects or actions, this written language was complex and structured at the outset, with signs that represented sounds only and as detailed system of numerical symbols. Even the very earliest hieroglyphs were stylized and conventionalized; and it is clear that an advanced cursive script was in common usage by the dawn of the First Dynasty.

John Anthony West, an expert on the early dynastic period, asks:

How does a complex civilization spring full-blown into being? Look at a 1906 automobile and compare it to a modern one. There is no mistaking the process of “development”. But in Egypt there are no parallels. Everything is right there at the start. The answer to the mystery is of course obvious but, because it is repellent to the prevailing cast of modern thinking, it is seldom considered. Egyptian civilization was not a “development”, it was a legacy.

What’s remarkable is that there are no traces of evolution from simple to sophisticated, and the same is true of mathematics, medicine, astronomy and architecture and of Egypt’s amazingly rich religio-mythological system.

One explanation could simply be that Egypt received its sudden and decisive cultural boost from some other known civilization of the ancient world. Sumer, in Mesopotamia, is the most likely contender. Despite many basic differences, a variety of shared building techniques and architectural styles does suggest a link between the two regions. But none of these similarities is strong enough to infer that the connection could have been in any way causal, with one society directly influencing another.

On the contrary, Walter Emery, late Edwards Professor of Egyptology at the University of London writes writes:

The impression we get is of an indirect connection, and perhaps the existence if a third party, whose influence spread to both the Euphrates and the Nile… Modern scholars have tended to ignore the possibility of immigration to both regions from some hypothetical and as yet undiscovered area. However, a third party whose cultural achievements were passed on independently to Egypt and Mesopotamia would best explain the common features and fundamental differences between the two civilizations.”

This theory sheds lights on the mysterious fact that the Egyptians and Sumerian people of Mesopotamia appear to have worshiped virtually identical lunar deities who were among the oldest in their respective pantheons (Thoth – Egyptians, Sin – Sumerians). According to Egyptologist Sir E.A. Wallis Budge, “The similarity between the two gods is too close to be accidental…It would be wrong to say that the Egyptians borrowed from the Sumerians or vise-versa. It may be submitted that the literati of both peoples borrowed their theological systems from some common but exceedingly ancient source.

The question is: what was that “common but exceedingly ancient source”. that “hypothetical and as yet undiscovered area”. that advanced “third party” to which both Budge and Emery refer? And if it left a legacy of high culture in Egypt and in Mesopotamia, why shouldn’t it have done so in Central America?

It is possible that the initial impulse could have been felt at the same time in both places but that the subsequent outcome could have been completely different.

On this scenario, the civilizers would have succeeded brilliantly in Egypt and Sumer, creating lasting and remarkable cultures there. In Mexico and Peru, on the other hand, they suffered some serious setback. Perhaps getting off to a good start, but going rapidly downhill. The light of civilization would never quite gave been lost, but things didn’t pick up again until around 1500 BC, the so called “Olmec horizon”, By then the great sculptures would have been hoary with age, ancient relics of immense spiritual power, thier all but forgotten origins wrapped in myths of giants and bearded civilizers.

Statues of the "Bearded civilizers" who brought civilization to Central/South America

An "Olmec Head", weighing as much as 60 tons each, which depict a racial type that is alien to the Americas.

If so, we may be gazing at faces from a much more remote past than we imagine when we stare into the mysterious almond eyes of one of the giant “negro” heads or into the chiseled CaucasianĀ  features: the correct date for when these statues were carved still remains unknown. It is by no means impossible that these great works preserve the images of peoples from a vanished civilization which embraced several different ethnic groups.

That, in a nutshell, is the “hypothetical third party” theory.

    I like this one, D. This happens to be one of my favorite ares of study. I haven’t taught on it in awhile… maybe I should put up a post or two about the archeological evidence and the conclusions the system don’t want anyone to know about…?

    Don’t forget the theory that aliens built the pyramids – oh I just find this stuff so entertaining http://www.outerworlds.com/likeness/aliens/aliens.html

    Thank you, nice post. Of course, now you have to deal with the the Anunnuki and Nibiru.
