Did Another Highly Advanced Civilization Exist On Earth Long Before Human Race?

Graham Hancock is regarded as an expert on “advanced human cultures preceding the one we know,” or the “mother culture” that preceded subsequent ancient civilizations.

Although some consider the concept of ancient civilizations and their putative technology to be “pseudo-scientific,” there are several clues that point to the employment of complex technical systems in the distant past. When we remove the concept of aliens who came to teach our forefathers, some of the things Hancock has given over time remain.

History informs us that our predecessors’ pre-primitive achievements were not technically advanced, but rather megaliths, artifacts, and mental processes that appear to be curiously out of sync with what they accomplished. This suggests that something may have preceded what our civilization was capable of and what it did after around 10,000 B.C.

The underground and underwater structures, as well as some obvious artifacts, appear to have a premise based on the knowledge that was once known, and showing up in situ or in ancient texts that have gone missing due to human destruction or environmental disasters: the fire that wiped out the works in the Library of Alexandria (48 BC) or the Eruption of Vesuvius (79 AD), not to mention the great flood registered in ancient texts as a “mythic” event that “destroyed the…”

Gobekli Tepe’s T-shaped pillars are carved with stylised hands, belts, and loincloths.

The Göbekli Tepe constructions point to a pre-10,000 civilization with an intriguing and out-of-sync mindset right before the Sumerian (Mesopotamian) societies, for which we have records and proof.

If one replaces Erich von Däniken’s “theories” in “Chariots of the Gods?” with Graham Hancock’s thinking, the notion of an earlier, brighter humanity being alive on Earth, one gets something less aggressive than the ET thesis.

But what about that magnificent and beautiful old human civilization? It’s a difficult question to answer. However, like with any culture that reaches a tipping point, issues such as environmental adversity, overpopulation, conflicts, and so on emerge.

And, while we don’t have an explanation for this mystery, we may hazard some guesses by monitoring the current situation and supplementing it with previous discoveries. Perhaps history, our civilization’s history, repeats itself.
