Merry Monday Mystery...!

I like finding these Monday mysteries! It makes the start of the week a little more interesting, I think.

This one is another from the long ago past. It truly makes you wonder just what else from our past we haven't uncovered yet!

The Dropa Stones


In 1938, an archaeological expedition led by Dr. Chi Pu Tei into the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of China made an astonishing discovery in some caves that had apparently been occupied by some ancient culture. Buried in the dust of ages on the cave floor were hundreds of stone disks. Measuring about nine inches in diameter, each had a circle cut into the center and was etched with a spiral groove, making it look for all the world like some ancient phonograph record some 10,000 to 12,000 years old. The spiral groove, it turns out, is actually composed of tiny hieroglyphics that tell the incredible story of spaceships from some distant world that crash-landed in the mountains. The ships were piloted by people who called themselves the Dropa, and the remains of whose descendants, possibly, were found in the cave.

Pretty interesting find, wouldn't you say? Something like this could keep the researchers busy for a really long time, I reckon!

Coffee in the kitchen this morning. Still a little cool in the morning and the kitchen is nice and warm!

Wow! Can't tell you how many articles there on them out there! Will have to read a few of them later today. In the meantime coffee in the kitchen sounds might good - it's 34 here! Good day for nice, fresh from the over oatmeal raisin cookies! I'll bring a big batch for all.

Momlady said...

I always knew we aren't the only ones in the universe. Thank you for the info. I'll have to look further. Oatmeal raisin cookies? Yum!

Thank you for highlighting the Dropa Stones. Saw something on either Nat. Geo or The History channel on them .Very interesting. Coffee inside sounds good. My birdbath was frozen over this morning - 28 outside.

John said...

Very interesting. Below freezing again this morning. Pellet stove going good, coffee hot. Have a good one.

Sixbears said...

Another good Monday selection. Not sure if it's true or not, but at any rate, an interesting story.

JO said...

Interesting.I thought they were petrified tree rings. What ever they are the certainly look cool.

Coffee in the kitchen sounds wonderful after that cold walk. Fred is camped out in front of the heater. I

I heard about them before but not the part about what the hieroglyphics said. Very interesting, for sure. I love your Monday mysteries.

Hey Gorges...
I try and find some of the more unusual articles for us to look at!

Hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks for coming over today!


Hey Phyllis...
Plenty of info if you are willing to search it out!

Those cookies sure sound good to me! Bring 'em on!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Momlady...
Sure does seem to point in that direction, doesn't it?

I'll save you a cookie or two!

Thanks for the visit today!


Hey Linda...
Interesting artifacts, that's for sure!

I appreciate the visit today!


Hey John...
Not quite as cold here on the Texas coast, but it's cool enough to get our attention!

Glad the stove is working OK and the coffee is hot!

Thanks for coming over today!


Hey Sixbears...
Nothing like a good story to ponder on, while sitting by the stove! Helps to pass the time if nothing else!

Thanks for coming by this morning!


Hey Jo...
They do look pretty cool, don't they?

Happy you could make it by this chilly morning, sweetie!


Hey Dizzy...
Sort of makes you wonder, doesn't it?

I like these sorts of things, ya know?

Many thanks for coming by today, buddy!

Grey Mobius said...

If you play them backwards, they sound just like the Beatles's "White album".

HermitJim said...

Hey Grey...
What kind of player can I use to try that?

Man, wish I had another copy of the "White Album" again!

Thanks for coming by this morning!

:::enters shivering:::: Chilly here, too; but no frost yet.
And no rain....didn't Von Daniken mention these in one of those books of his? Gods...been so long since I read them I can't even recall.

HermitJim said...

Hey Syrbal...
He probably did, but like you said...I haven't read him in such a long time I can't remember!

Interesting stuff! Hey, thanks for dropping by today!

Grey Mobius said...

I'm not certain what player but judging by the hole you might need one of those yellow 45 adapter thingy's. I used to read Von D., Charles Berlitz and others until I realized "what a bunch of crap". It seemed that applying "Occam's Razor" to a lot of this stuff it just fell apart. It was fun while it lasted.

Spud said...

Hey ,all that hocus pocus paint your butt blue and howl at the moon religious stuff had to have roots from somewhere. Sounds plausible this could well be one of the origins
