The Schist Disk. Ancient Artefacts of a Lost Civilization.

The Schist Disk. Ancient Artefacts of a Lost Civilization.

Modern Archeology would like history to follow
a nice neat linear progression when it comes to the development of technology. Discoveries daisy chaining through time, from
a sharpened stick to stone tools until we reach today’s digital age. This, however, does not fit with the realities
of history. Many objects have been discovered that do
not fit with this idea on how technology was created, there are objects that should not
exist. They show huge jumps in either the way they
were constructed or what they could do. One such object is the Schist Disk. Let’s take a look. Welcome to if…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. The Schist Disk is a relic that some say is
a Mysterious Piece of Sophisticated Technology which could mean the History books will need
to be rewritten. Other strange technologies which do not fit
with history have been discovered, the Antikythera Mechanism is one such artefact and is considered
the world’s oldest known computer. A 2000-year-old clock-sized device contained
an elaborate collection of some 30 interlockings, spinning gears that controlled dials that
tracked the Sun, the Moon, eclipses, planets, and the schedule for the Olympic Games. Stone disks are also regularly found, these
are claimed to hold records from the ancient past. The Dropa stones (a subject we looked at in
the link above) to More than a dozen mysterious carved discs found near Volgograd, Russia. These Russian disks are larger than the Dropa
stone disks. The UFO investigation team who made the discovery,
claim that the stone disks are thought to be around a million years old, they theorized
that they are most probably alien military drones that were damaged in an attack on Mars
before falling to Earth. And we can talk about ancient technologies
without mentioning “oparts” Out-Of-Place Artifacts. The many remarkable and controversial ancient
artefacts that could re-write history. From 300-320 million-year-old screws to yet
another circular artefact, The Genetic Disk. The Genetic Disc is one of the most interesting
and confusing finds of archaeology, it’s not made of artificial materials like cement
but of lydite a rare black stone and measures about 22 cm in diameter. It weighs about 2 kg. On the disk, there are carvings that describe
the astonishing knowledge of our ancestors. The object has been examined in the Museum
of Natural History, Vienna, Austria and still defies explanation as to why or who constructed
the disc. This brings us to the Schist disc similarly
Researchers are still not sure what kind of extraordinary object they have. The Schist Disk is approximately 61 cm in
diameter (24 inches), one cm thick, and 10.6 cm (4.2 inches) in the centre. The disk has been dated to about 5,000 years
ago it has been suggested that it is a component of an ancient unknown advanced machine. The disk was found back in 1936 being unearthed
on the plateau edge of North Saqqara near Djoser’s Step Pyramid in Egypt. Djoser was the first king of the Third Dynasty
of Egypt and it is said he was the first to build in stone. The king built an impressive tomb by stacking
mastabas (squared stones) on top of one another, each block smaller than the last, to form
the structure we now know as the Step Pyramid. The discovery of the disc in the Egyptian
sands was made by British Egyptologist Walter Bryan Emery (1902-1971). From the moment it was first unearthed it
was thought to be part of some larger unknown mechanism which the Egyptologist was keen
to find. He extensively excavated the tomb of Sabu. Sabu was the son of Pharaoh Aneddzhiba and
a high official or administrator of a town or province possibly called “Star of the family
of Horus”. The disc was part of a collection of artefacts
the archaeologist recovered from the tomb. This tomb was said to have had no stairways
and sand filled the structure from floor to ceiling. This sand was cleared by Emery and his workers
as they dug the sand away they discovered stone daggers, vessels, flint knives, arrows,
few copper tools and the most interesting artefacts being bowl fragments. These fragments would be reconstructed into
a disk. The craftsmanship of such an object was amazing,
still today nobody knows how it was manufactured. The disk is very fragile carved from extremely
delicate material its carving would have been extremely difficult and very tedious. A challenge to craftsmen even in modern times. So what was the device meant to do? What machine was it part of? Who constructed such a fine and exact object? Scientists have investigated the disk and
have come to some interesting conclusions, they do not believe the disk to be a wheel,
this because the wheel first appeared in Egypt about 1500 BC. The Schist disk is way too old to fit with
this date. It would push the Egyptians knowledge of the
wheel back to 3000 BC and would mean some serious re-writes would be needed to the historical
timeline. Many have suggested that the disk is merely
a decretive item this because of its fragile nature, such an intricately carved stone object
is greatly limited in its practical usage and they say this suggests a religious or
other such ritualistic purposed object. Others claim a purely practical purpose, the
disk being used to drive a foot oil lamp. These mundane theories have been shot down
by others who argue that the three-blade ceremonial lamp is hardly possible. They say the shape and curvature of the disks
blades, seem to suggest a function, not just decoration. They believe that we are dealing with an unknown
advanced form of ancient technology. This idea is that the ancient Egyptians had
technological capabilities far beyond what is commonly thought. Cyril Aldred and Egyptologist reached another
conclusion, he and others say that the disk is a copy of a much, much older object. An object which was most likely metal. Erik von Daniken proposed that the disk was
an internal flywheel of an ancient space ship’s hyperdrive system. Sceptics say the ancient Egyptian artefact
is an incense holder, they point to similar objects which seem to have been used for incense
but are made from clay. They say although extremely difficult to do,
the carving of the brittle sedimentary rock lydite is possible with a careful hand. But how could a culture, which at that time,
used basic chisels to shape rock have mastered such a refined technique, working with such
a delicate material to such an extraordinary level of ability? In a final strange twist, the disk has been
said to closely mirror the design of flywheels that Lockheed developed to be fitted hermetically
within a case filled with lubricant. During the 1970s, engineers of the Lockheed
Missile & Space Company came up with the design of a light-rimmed wheel, claiming it is best
suited for saving energy in mass transit trains or storing energy in electrically powered
trolley-buses. The electricity they say, well that fits with
the idea held by many that ancient Egypt had discovered and used electricity. So is the Schist disk a similar technology
from ancient times? If it is it would shatter the perceived view
of humanity’s past. One thing that is certain is that The Schist
Disk’s futuristic design continues to baffle all who have seen it. What do you think, was this simply an oil
lamp or decorative religious object or was it a part of some long lost machine? Let me know your thoughts in the comments

  1. This weekends premiere is all set. I hope you can join me for a good chat, don't forget to hit that reminder button. Feel free to share an invite let's see if we can make this the biggest chat yet!!


  2. The Schist diks is a really interesting artifact because of weird it looks and how unpractical is its design. But a quick note, the "Genetic disc" has been multiple times proved to be a modern hoax and the main reason people still talk about is the fact that the actual owner of the disc is a self called "spiritual archeologist" and dismiss the evidence of it being a fake object.

  3. If people has been finding these artefacts is because an advanced civilization existed back then.. And that's proof that they actually existed.. I was in amazed when I saw that first computer ? How the world has changed..
    Thanks for the great video..๐Ÿ’–

  4. It needs to be computer animated, to see how it acts in fluids or gases. Is it actually as well-balanced and circular as it appears in the photos, or is it off-kilter enough to produce unbalanced rotation?

  5. palmface The disk could have had no practical use that required stresses, as you could pick it up and snap it like a fortune cookie. I have carved schist and meta-silicons like this before they are uber brittle and take a lot of time to carve, and you can do it with simple tools such as bone and bronze or stone [it just takes longer than using modern methods.] So no "fly wheel" or alien drive, it was just a very expensive incense burner ;hence why it was in a tomb. The riches and excesses being taken to the afterlife! FFS, shouting "aliens" at everything that requires more than 10mins06seconds to understand is the last recourse of the moron. Think people, that's what brains were evolved for!!!

  6. I don't just like, I love what you do on the channel!! You come up with such interesting and unique stuff! Never a dull moment with you! Thanks We are IF! โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘โค๏ธ

  7. It appears to be formed, not carved. I believe the ancient Egyptians made many things from "softened" and then "rehardened" stone. It looks to me like this may have been some type of unknown "clay".

  8. Maybe.. it's the worlds first food processor? Put the ingredients in a bowl with a similar curvature to the 3 blades, secure a stick to the shaft hole, then place it upside down in the bowl and turn rapidly with your hands, or maybe even use a string pulley device for higher speeds? Lol what do you think? This device looks quite advanced, but i do wonder if its actually for something really simple
