Ancient nanostructures found in Ural mountains

Ancient nanostructures found in Ural mountains are out of place and time

An Oopart (out of place artifact) is a term applied to dozens of prehistoric objects found in various places around the world that, given their level of technology, are completely at odds with their determined age based on physical, chemical, and/or geological evidence. Ooparts often are frustrating to conventional scientists and a delight to adventurous investigators and individuals interested in alternative scientific theories.

In 1991, the appearance of extremely tiny, coil-shaped artifacts found near the banks of Russia’s Kozhim, Narada, and Balbanyu rivers brought about a debate that has continued to this day. These mysterious and minuscule structures suggest that there may have been a culture capable of developing nanotechnology 300,000 years ago.

These manufactured coils were initially discovered during geological research associated with the extraction of gold in the Ural mountains. These pieces include coils, spirals, shafts, and other unidentified components.

According to an analysis from the Russian Academy of Sciences in Syktyvkar, the largest pieces found are mostly copper, while the smallest are made of tungsten and molybdenum.

While the largest of these objects measure 1.18 inches, the smallest are only 1/10,000th of an inch, and many exhibit Golden Mean proportions. Their shape suggests that they are manufactured and not naturally occurring metal fragments. In fact, they have been found to closely resemble the same miniature components of contemporary nanotechnology.

Though some have asserted that these tiny structures are merely debris left behind from test rockets being launched from nearby Plesetsk space station, a report from the Moscow Institute determined that they are far too old to have come from modern manufacturing.

In 1996, Dr. E.W. Matvejeva, from the Central Scientific Research Department of Geology and Exploitation of Precious Metals in Moscow, writes that, despite being thousands of years old, the components are of a technological origin.

The pieces were found at a depth between 10 and 40 feet, in a geological stratus between 20,000 and 318,000 years old.

How were humans able to manufacture such tiny components in the distant past, and what were they used for? Some believe that the coils prove the human race enjoyed a sophisticated level of technology in the Pleistocene era, while others assert that the findings are the work of extra-terrestrials.

The artifacts have been studied at four different facilities in Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. However, further research into these tiny structures seems to have ended in 1999 with the death of Dr. Johannes Fiebag, a principal researcher of the find.

300,000 years is a curious figure. The first things that come to mind are, the origins of the Hindu religion that came from the North from the tall fair skinned race. But our species did not migrate out of Africa untill 200,000 years ago which means there had to have been another people...aliens or an earlier more advanced indigenous race.

I think there is enough evidance now to near completely debunk the "Out of Africa" theory, or at least prove that wasn't the "Only" point of origin for modern homo-sapiens. This is a good place to start :

One of my favorite subjects is these OOPARTS, I really should have continued into Anthropology as I had intended and yet my life took a different turn. To the best of my knowledge, the planet is around 7.5 Billion years old, and I've seen artifacts dated to 3 plus billion years. There's some super advanced technology in California underground that is dated to around 900 Million years old, that very few know about.

But then all I know for certain is that the 'history' taught in schools from kindergarten through graduate levels, is all but complete and utter lies. Fabricated.

According to Joseph Jocmans, the Mayan Culture is around 400,000 years old instead of merely a few thousand.

4.5 billion years is the accepted figure for the age of the earth.

Brilliant Joseph. I sometimes believe that we actually created this reality ourselves in the distant past and just have no records of it. We built the moon and destroyed parts of the solar system but we just have access to the history of it all. Sometimes I believe we are on the tail end of the story just waiting to spiral into our star and that the real meat of the history of earth happened millions of years ago. We are the leftovers from something that was much greater.

Joseph, I think even some mainstream archaeologists are now in the loop, that it's more likely out of Indonesia and much earlier.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
