Ancient Incan City Discovered...

This article on the new discovery of an ancient Incan site underscores several points about present conditions that reflect how big things happen quickly after many small precursors. Scientists called the collapse of the Larsen B ice shelf in two months staggering, but the signs were present at least four years before the collapse. The Incan site was reduced from 32 million to 5 million people in about 20 years coinciding with a trend of precursors that began before the European arrived.

"European diseases like measles ravaged the empire, cutting its population from an estimated 32 million people in 1520 to 5 million in 1548."

Several times is mentioned now that disease rather than war killed the Native American who did not have an immunity to childhood European diseases. This article underscores how quickly disease ravaged Native America.

Another trend is growing now with cancer, particularly skin cancer among the White race, due to growing levels of radiations of all kinds. Solar and cosmic radiations are being admitted through the ozone hole that extended over populated areas in recent years.

The lost Incan city seems to testify to the futility of trying to escape Nature's trends, in that the Inca were able to escape encroaching Europeans but could not escape the disease that ultimately destroyed their population. Facts of this nature are given considerable thought and passed on is this article with the observation that it is more economical to recognize a developing trend than try to escape the facts of human existence that affect all peoples regardless of race and creed. Consider this a caveat to look to the economy of the universe where all things serve a purpose.

The percentage of Inca that survived the epidemic of disease is about the same as the percentage of people predicted to survive the presently ongoing earth changes. This correspondence is pointed out as a reminder that although the collective unconscious is rarely acknowledged and understood it is a powerful force that functions on recognizable laws.

Signs of change in the collective unconscious before the European arrived in Native America and comparable signs are at work in the contemporary setting.

Here is news of a new discovery:

Ancient Inca City Comes to Light

March 19 — In the first major Inca find in four decades, Peruvian and British explorers say they have discovered a hidden city, perched on an Andean hilltop, that may have sheltered stalwarts of South America's legendary empire as they made a last stand against Spanish conquerors.

Located on a narrow ridge around 11,000 feet up in Peru's windswept, southern Andes, the Inca citadel of Corihuayrachina is a mysterious gathering of religious platforms, funeral towers, and food storehouses.

British scholar and guide Peter Frost told a news conference on Monday he first spotted the ruins in the rugged, isolated Vilcabamba region some 300 miles south-east of Lima three years ago.

Frost said the site was the biggest of its kind found since 1964 and could have been occupied by the Inca when they took to the hills after the Spanish conquest. It is about 22 miles southwest of the famous Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.

The Incas once ruled a vast swath of South America stretching from Colombia to Chile, but Spain's Francisco Pizarro and his band of 160 treasure-hunters, using cannons and horses, brought that empire to a bloody end in 1533. Some Inca, moving with an army of 50,000 to the more remote Vilcabamba area, held out against the invaders for nearly 40 years.

"It's a jigsaw puzzle. What we're finding are more pieces ... to get a better sense of what was happening in that area," said Frost, who has lived for 30 years in the Inca's imperial capital Cusco in southern Peru, gateway to Machu Picchu.

European diseases like measles ravaged the empire, cutting its population from an estimated 32 million people in 1520 to 5 million in 1548.

Frost said he found Corihuayrachina — eyeing it from afar but not able to actually reach it — when he was leading a group of tourists through the remote region in 1999. With funding, Frost was finally able to set foot on the cloud-shrouded site two years later in June, 2001, trekking four days along winding mountain paths with a team of scientists and excavators.

"This was an area totally untouched by science," said Peruvian archeologist and expedition co-leader Alfredo Valencia, who along with local workers hacked away at the thick leaves and vines covering squat buildings and murky tombs.

But Frost said the scientists were still in the early stages of puzzling out who inhabited Corihuayrachina, how they lived, and why they chose to live in such an inhospitable place.

"If (the site) was occupied after the Spanish conquest, what will we find? If we find human remains, will they show European diseases?" Frost said.

Like most of the scores of native shrines, tombs and temples across this Andean nation, the explorers said the site had been looted over the years by local grave-robbers and now the graves were only filled with pottery fragments and bones. But unlike Machu Picchu,

Machu Picchu has been named a United Nations World Heritage site and draws throngs of tourists from across the globe. Unlike Machu Picchu, only stone foundations some 2-3 feet high remain of the new find's structures, which were originally constructed with adobe or wood.

Oh how I wish I was down there!! Pox was another killer brought to the America's. It will be interesting to see what he finds at this site.
I found more on this yesterday and I am watching the news. I was looking for something else on the net and poppsed into another news source. It offered a little more as it described the Village as having huts and a system of lock and dams.
